New Found Old Loves with Mini Reviews

It's probably no secret that us beauty and make-up bloggers have a few more products than we probably really should. Which is half the reason why I'm on a no buy this month! But that gave me the perfect opportunity to start rummaging around and finding things that had fallen out of my routine or were never given the chances they deserve. So I've put this little post together to show you some of my older bits and bobs I'm reappreciating. Swatches are at the bottom :)

  • ELF Natural Radiance Blusher - Glow 
  • GOSH Velvet Touch Eyeliner - Metallic Brass
  • The Body Shop - Nutmeg and Vanilla Lip Balm
  • Fyrinnae Eyeshadow - Choco-Cake Mix 

ELF Natural Radiance Blusher - Glow 
I've had this for absolutely ages and haven't used it much or mentioned it on my blog. Until now! The pigmentation isn't amazing, but it's very workable and buildable. The colour however is a really pretty pinky peach with a subtle golden shimmer. I'm really glad I picked this up and gave it a proper chance!

Availabilty - ELF's website, £1.50. 

GOSH Velvet Touch Eyeliner - Metallic Brass
If you've been reading my blog for a while you might remember me raving about this at the beginning of the year. Until recently it had been neglected a little, but since I've started my new job I've been wearing it a lot. The colour is a beautiful golden black thats creamy and long lasting. Definitely a winner! 

Availability -  Superdrug, £4.99. 

The Body Shop Nutmeg and Vanilla Lip Balm
I forget if I got this last Christmas, or the one before. Whichever it has an amazing scent of sweetened nutmeg, without being artificial. It also isn't half bad at moisturizing my lips, giving a nice glossy finish. I'm sure I read somewhere that this was coming back this Christmas? Hopefully anyway as mine may not last too much longer at the rate I'm using it! 

Availability - Previous Limited Edition product. 

Fyrinnae Eyeshadow - Choco-Cake Mix 
This is a beautiful deep brown with hints of taupe in it. It's also matte and really pigmented, so looks stunning in the crease. I only have a sample size of this but it's lasting really well and was great value for the amount you get. My only fault is that this really doesn't photograph well on the eyes, but it's great in real life. 

Availability - Fyrinnaes website, ~$2 for a sample size if I remember correctly (the sites down at the moment!).  

ELF, Fyrinnae, GOSH, The Body Shop.

  1. The glow blusher is my all time love as well, the color is nice and buildable, it gives a great glow to the face if you sweep it across nose, chin and forehead very lightly to prevent from looking too washed out (: I even use it in my crease as an eyeshadow.
    Great post xx
