EmmysBeautyCave: April 2016

Lately I have been trying to use products I have had a while and forgotten about them. I have actually been loving this month’s makeup. I do have some products when I first tried them I didn’t like but I do try and force myself to use them for a few weeks and then make my mind up.

Collection Primed & Ready Mattifying Primer | £4.99 | Link

This is officially one of my holy grail primers! When I first saw it was released I didn’t have high hopes at all. It actually keeps my oily skin at bay throughout the day. It contains Witch Hazel which works wonders for your skin. 

Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm | £1.65 | Link

I always apply a lip balm before I do my foundation just so it stops makeup getting on your lips and also helps moisturise them before you apply any lip products.

Make Up Forever Mat Velvet + Foundation | £29.00 | Link

One of my holy grail foundations for Spring/Summer. This is a medium coverage foundation which feels very light and blends like a dream. It keeps me matte which is a must for me in the warmer weather. It looks absolutely flawless!

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector | £22.00 | Link

This is perfection in a jar! If you suffer with dark under eye circles you need this in your life. It is a pink toned corrector which is extremely creamy and hides dark circles amazingly well. You do apply concealer on top to get the finished flawless look. I did do a full review with before and after pictures to show how much of a difference this product makes.

Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer | £7.99 | Link

Hmm I saw this and thought I would give it a go. For me I don’t like it. I find yes it is creamy but on my pale skin it doesn’t add any radiance nor does it highlight. The coverage is ok not the best. Maybe this works better on medium-dark skintones. 

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation | £22.00 | Link

Holy Grail alert!! I have been using this powder for many years and I don’t intend to stop anytime soon. I use this on top of foundation to create the most flawless base, it doesn’t feel cakey and adds amazing coverage. I also wear this alone on the days I want a lighter base but still with amazing coverage.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer | £25.00 | Link

One of the most gorgeous bronzers ever invented and the bonus is it smells of chocolate! I have the lightest shade which works really well on pale skin. I did recently do a post on bronzers for pale skin with swatches which you can read HERE

Benefit Blush “Dandelion” | £23.50 | Link

I got the Benefit Blush Set for Christmas which included four blushes and the Hoola Bronzer. I decided to de-pot them so I can use them in my Z Palette and get more use out of them. Dandelion has to be one of my favourite shades, it is the perfect pink for Spring.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara | £19.50 (Full Size) | Link

This mascara also came in the Benefit Blush Set, I haven’t used it until recently. It is now one of my favourite mascara’s and I will definitely buy the full size. The wand is so unique and coats every lash! I love pairing this with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

Makeup Geek Eye Shadows | £4.95-£7.95 | Link

As you know I started buying Makeup Geek a few months ago to fill my Z Palette. I only need three more shades and my Large Palette will be full! My top shades have to be Desert Sands, Grandstand (Foiled), Purely Naked, Vintage and Starry Eyed (Foiled).

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Lipstick | £19.00 | Link

My first ever Too Faced lip product. When they released the Melted Chocolate range in February I new I had to have one. I got Chocolate Milkshake which is the perfect nude! Check out my swatches and try on in my Full Review.
