I'm always on the lookout to try new beauty bits - I have my favourites but I'm not naive enough to think that my current favourites are always going to be the best, so I think it's important to switch it up!
Illamasqua Matte Lipsticks - in 'Brink' and 'Over' - RRP £18.50
I don't often wear lipsticks, and when I do I usually stick to something very neutral. I went for these two brighter shades because I'm going on holiday in a couple of weeks, which I think is the perfect opportunity to switch it up and try something a little more fun. I like these even without the tan at the moment, but I'm dying to see how they'll look in a month!
Illamasqua Matte Primer - RRP £30.00
I struggle a lot with primers as I naturally have very oily skin, and a lot of primers for me add moisture which I don't need. I got super excited when I saw this as the description literally reads 'intensely mattifying formula' - how can a girl not get excited!? I've only been using this for a couple of days but so far so good, it really does seem to work!
Soap & Glory Archery Pencil - RRP £8.00
I've been using the same MAC eyebrow pen for years now, and as much as I love it, as £15 a pop I can't always be splurging on something so expensive, so this time I headed for the Archery pencil. I love it. It's so light, so you almost can't notice anything at first, but once you've built that up it means you're left with a really nice, natural looking brow that barely looks like you've added make-up. The brush on the end is really beneficial, it's definitely something I would recommend!
Rimmel London Scandaleyes Jumbo Eyeliner - RRP £5.49
I'm sadly really disappointed by this product - I wouldn't normally go for a pen but I thought the thick pen-like feature would really make it quick and easy to do my daily cat-eye flick, but it's such hard work! It's too thick and half the time it looks as if a child has done my make-up! They do a super thin version, so I'm going to pick that up next time as it definitely looks more suited to my style.
Okay, so I have a confession to make, this isn't actually a new try, it's an old favourite of mine! I picked something different up since the last time I used this, but haven't found anything I like quite as much as this one. The comb makes eyelashes really defined and evenly coated, and it's super easy to build up making lashed look longer and more voluminous - plus its cheap as chips!
