BEAUTY: WORTH THE HYPE?
11 April 2016
Today i'm talking about blogger hypes! These are those make up must haves, those products that you need to own! I know there are some products that I haven't included that are very popular right now for example the Kylie lip kit but honestly this just doesn't interest me in the slightest. I like the lip products I have right now without forking out stupid amounts of money because it says Kylie on the packaging.
I've gone for more staple items like foundations, highlighters and primers. First up is the Nars Sheer Glow foundation, if I could afford to wear this every single day I would. It soaks in to the skin so nice and blends so easily. The colour I have in this is perfect for my skin tone aswell, I have the shade Santa Fe. You get a lovely medium coverage with this foundation that you can easily build up and it leaves your skin looking flawless and smooth.
The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation was another blogger hype that everyone raved on about and i'm happy to say I loved it! I wasn't sure because of the price but so many people really liked it so I went out and bought it. It didn't last me very long because I liked it that much that I was wearing it all the time. I kinda wished i'd saved it now for occasions or nights out etc. The coverage again was lovely very buildable. The finish is gorgeous, you get a very nice dewy look. I would really like to pick this up again.
The L'Oreal Infaliable matte 24H was a more afforable product that I found alot of mixed reviews about. Some people loved it and others not as keen so I picked it up to see what I thought and I was very impressed. At the time I was suffering with oily skin so my make up would look cakey and sometimes slide off the skin. Not with this though, the formula again really nice and buildable. I found it high coverage but a lovely lightweight foundation. It blends into the skin well and I like to apply using a buffing brush.
The Collection lasting perfection concealer has been a long time must have for me. I always have one in my make up bag and it's the concealer I reach for every day! I do like the Urban Decay Naked one but the shade I have is too dark. I love that the collection one is so affordable and works great for everyone. I don't find it cakey, it blends great and is really easy to work with and affordable. If you haven't tried it before, give it ago you won't regret it.
The Becca Jaclyn Hill Highlighter in Champagne pop was raved about by so many people for so long that I needed it. I hadn't even swatched it but I ordered it anyway and when it arrived I wasn't dissapointed. It's one of the best products i've ever bought. A little on the pricey side but I really wanted to give it ago and my Space NK voucher was soon to expire so why not. It's such a pretty highlighter, the colour is perfect and would suit so many different skin colours. I'm so so happy I bought this and I will have to buy another one when mine runs out because I use it every single day.
The Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade was all everyone was talking about at one point so when I went to America I picked it up and I love it. I don't tend to reach for it so much anymore but when I first got it I used it everyday! I tend to go for a more natural brow look now, I was using the Brow Wiz pencil but I need to order a new one so now i'm using the Soap and Glory Archery pencil. I use the Dipbrow when i'm going out.
The Urban Decay Potion Primer is one of my all time must haves! I love the original but my favourite is Sin. It's a gorgeous gold shimmery shade. I use potion primer every single day and will always repurchase it. It makes your eyeshadow look 100 times better and last longer too.
Mac Velvet Teddy has to be one of the most hyped blogger products. It's such a gorgeous shade, I love that it's matte. I really like the Mac Matte lipsticks. They are creamy and smooth. I really like Velvet Teddy, it's my go to lipstick. I wear it all the time.
Topshop Glow is such a gorgeous highlighter and i've seen people rave on about the Topshop beauty products. You can use it on your brow bone or cheekbones, it's really easy to apply. It's such a bargain and lasts such a long time. I really like the Topshop beauty products, well worth the hype.
As you can see i've been pretty happy with these blogger hypes, I have tried some hypes that I haven't been impressed with and I will feature these in a blog post soon.
