what I've added to my august makeup bag!

by - 13:05

I've gone on a few shopping sprees recently and I've picked up a nice few bits so ovbscailly because its a beauty haul I'm going to show you what I've bought! *please note I've picked these up a few weeks ago but I was to lazy to take the photos for the post but at least I can give you my honest opinion on them!*
the first things I picked up were these two products from Primarks (pennys here) new (ish) collection bronze I picked up the loose highlight which retails for 3 euro but when I was in primark they had it for 1 euro! so really it was a bargin! Its extremely similar to the inglot JLOXINGLOT pure pigment eyeshadow- dupe alert?!
I think loose highlighters are super messy but I like to use this as a eyeshadow for cutcreases which I find makes such a pretty look however I kind of regret picking this shade up as its very dark. (its called island life which I think is inspired by love island?! what do you think?

the metal lipgloss was also on sale for 1 euro (If you wondering why I'm not using the euro symbol its because I cant find it on this laptop and copy and pasting messes this up)
I thought it might possibly be a dupe for inglots lipglossy lipgloss however after a few trials I'm sad to say its not. I do find this such a nice lipgloss and love to use it as a liptopper which works out really well.

I purchased quite a lot of face products such as the collection long lasting perfection concealer with so many beauty bloggers talking about it and it being zoellas must have beauty product I had to try it! and they recently added a new pale shade 0 fair
as you can see by the concealers tube I am loving it! drugstore concealers have seriously improved in the last few months along wiht my new real techniques MCS I have high praise for this duo!

A while ago I went to a masterclass at inglot (I highly recommend it!) and I picked up the new JLOXINGLOT HD presed poweder which is ideal for people with dry skin I haven't actually opened it yet as I really want to get an empty palette to put the pan in as I'm afraid it will break.

the last thing face related I bought was the blank canvas cosmetics concealer brush (F17) I love this brush so so much! BCC are such a lovely Irish brand and have always been in mine and my friends makeup bags (heads up if its your birthday and I get you a present I'' more than likely include a BCC brush)

Moving on to some other lip products I saw the two faced melted long lasting liquid lipstick in TK MAXX for 2 euro which really buying it was a no brainer! its quite a bright colour but I really like it.
I received this take baker lip and cheek tint as a present and its now my go to cheek product. I'm really enjoying using it! 
when I went to my second inglot masterclass I bought the new inglot brow pomade in the shade taupe and this 100% is one of my latest go-to products its so creamy compare to other ones I've tried and its very photogenic!!

and last...
in skin care I bought the garnier skin active botanical gel wash, I haven't properly used this so I'm not sure of my thoughts on it at the moment
