LOVING LATELY #3





































First of all, I'm sorry I didn't post anything yesterday but I had a bit of a manic weekend so you're getting a Monday post instead. You lucky things. Anyways, it's been a while since my last Loving Lately so I thought it was about time for the next instalment.


The Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation has quickly become a new favourite of mine. I talk about it properly in this post but the long and short of it is that it's light to medium coverage and very natural looking - right up my street. Although it's a bit thicker than what I usually fancy, it blends out in seconds and doesn't go cakey on my dry skin. 

As I've mentioned before, eyebrows are my thing but unfortunately mine are very high-maintenance. They tend to get a little wayward throughout the day so I need something to fix them in place and keep them there. That's where the Rimmel Brow This Way comes in. The brush is the perfect size for my brows (but it may be a little big for thinner brows) and keeps them neat all day without feeling stiff.

A recent rediscovery has been the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze. I went a little mental for these when these first came out - and talked about it here - but for some reason I stopped using them. Recently I started using this again and I'd forgotten how much I loved it. It's so easy to slap on (even when you're half asleep) and is the perfect everyday, shimmery bronze colour.

A few weeks ago I made my first ever Nars purchase - the Eyeshadow Duo in Kalahari - and it is a beaut. I did a full review here with swatches and all that jazz but basically it is gorgeous despite being a whopping £25 and now I want every colour.

Finally, I'm not really one for lip products but I've really been loving the No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Daydreamer. It's a very natural nudey-pink colour with a little bit of shine and feels just like a lip balm. I may be slightly converted.

Have you tried any of these? What did you think?

Thanks for reading, Lucy x

    1. Thank you! It's a good'un - I want to try the dark brown colour next, I've heard it's similar to Benefit Gimme Brow x

  3. I'm so tempted to pick up On and On Bronze! It looks fab, but it seems weirdly cool toned on my skin! Which is strange because I absolutely adore Rimmel Match perfection which I've seen you love too!
    I might just buy it anyway because it looks pretty haha
    Fab post hun,

    1. That's so weird because I find it pretty warm toned on me. I'd say go for anyway because it is beautiful and I get so much use out of it. Thanks so much Hannah, you're a babe ;) x
