Five New Things: March

So yes, I know it's already half way through March, BUT I do have five new products I've been testing. Again, I've gone for more make up type products this month - but I might have a skin care theme for April. We may see... 

But let's get back to the here and now and introduce some of my new additions...

I picked up a new base product at the very beginning of the month, which I've been dying to try. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation is one of THE most hyped products I think I've ever come across. I've been putting off trying it for two reasons. One, the price - it's £32 and you don't even get a pump, I mean really. And two, it has a glowwy finish - which for a gal whose is used to her matte finishes is a bit terrifying. But anyway, I went into my nearest SpaceNK, got a colour match and walked away with a bottle and pump. Now, I have shade Vallauris, which I think is a touch too dark but it's good at warming my skin and does blend naturally so I'm okay right now. So far, I like, but we'll see whether it's worth the hype by the end of the month. Another base type product I picked up was a new bronzer, in particular the Collection Bronze Glow Mosaic Powder in Radiant. I don't know why, but it just called out to me in the shop. I was naughty, I didn't even swatch. I just saw it, fell in love with pretty shades and mosaic pattern, and bought it. Hopefully this spontaneous shade will pay off as at the moment I'm a high end bronzer loving gal, and I could do with saving the pennies.

My beloved and holy grail liquid liner has started to run out, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try a new one. I even went one further and got one by a brand I've never tried before - NYX (yes, I know, I'm a shit blogger, I should be totally in love with this brand like everyone else by now). I picked up their Felt Tip Liner in Extreme Black - now I swatched this and it looked a lot more like a green liner than a black liner, but it'll try it. It might look different on the eyes? Plus, it's a good intro into the brand. If I like their liner, I'm going to like anything else. It's just a given. That works right?

I also picked up two new lip products - surprise surprise. The first is the Tanya Burr Matte Lip in Martha Moo. I've been trying to find this shade FOREVER and finally managed to pick it up. I do like the shade, I feel it's a bit too yellow toned for me but I'm gonna roll with it and see how I find it. It's super easy to apply but I'm intrigued to test out the lasting power and formula more. And then last, but not least, I picked up one of the new Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor's in the shade Dawn, which is a beautiful natural berry pink colour - totally right up my street. I'm just super intrigued by these formulas - what's a gel lipstick supposed to be like? I don't know, but I usually love Revlon's lip releases so I'm super excited to try this one out. I think it's going to be a bit of a staple everyday shade for me. Although it's a very long lipstick isn't it... 

Anyway! I'll catch up with you all at the end of March to give you the run down. Let me know if you'd like me to do the verdict in video as well - I think that might work quite well with these posts! And let me know of any skincare products I should try for April!

Much love, Lisa May

  1. I really wanna see how you get on with the Nars foundation - I'm so tempted but it's just so damn expensive and I have so many foundations already on the go! x
