EmmysBeautyCave: May 2016

It’s haul time! I know it was only recently I did a haul but it included more high end products and over the past few weeks I have bought alot of drugstore products so I thought I would share what I picked up. Even though I love high end, I think the drugstore are really killing it lately with some amazing products. 

Boots have a Buy 1 Get One Half Price on Soap and Glory at the moment so I picked up two old favourites and two new products.

Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder | £12.00 | Link

I used this powder all last Summer non stop! It is a translucent powder which mattifys the skin. I keep this in my bag as a touch up powder throughout the day and oh my it definitely keeps me matte. I find it doesn’t leave that powdery finish and looks gorgeous. 

Soap and Glory Kick Ass Instant Retouch Powder | £12.00 | Link

I have never tried this powder before but I recently saw it on UmmBabys Instagram account and she said it is amazing for under the eyes as it is a pale yellow powder which is perfect for brightening. 

Soap and Glory Solar Powder | £11.00 | Link

Ah again I used this all last Summer for that perfect glow. I find this works really well on my pale skin without looking orange or cakey. After a few uses the shimmer isn’t as much which I like and it has the subtle bronze look. 

Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Foundation | £12.00 | Link

I have been wanting to try this ever since it was released but I have read so many mixed reviews which put me off buying it for so long. I thought it was about time I try it and see whether I love it or hate it. I will be doing a full review once I have tested it out a few times. 

Kiss Light Reflecting Primer | £3.00 | Link

This is the only product not from Boots but from Wilkinson’s. I did a full review of this primer HERE where you can see how much I love this primer. It is the best mattifying primer I have EVER tried. 

Seventeen Skin Wow Concealer | £4.99 | Link

This primer has been a nightmare to get hold of. I had been wanting it in the shade Fair and it is always out of stock in store and online! A few people recommended I try the shade Medium as apparently it is still quite light and pink toned. The shade is actually really good and will work on pale skin. I will be testing this out and will be doing a post with all of my Seventeen concealers comparing them. 

Barry M Light Reflecting Concealer | £4.49 | Link

I have put off picking this up for so long as many reviews said the coverage wasn’t great, I decided to pick it up and try it for highlighting. So far I do like it as it does highlight well. I don’t like the applicator as it is quite thin. I wouldn’t recommend this for dark under eye circles as it is light coverage. 

Sleek Suede Effect Pressed Powder | £6.99 | Link

I always forget about Sleek but saw this powder online. It is described as a full coverage powder with SPF 15 and creates a matte finish. I am yet to try this but I will be soon. I want to test it on it’s own and on top of a foundation. Full review coming soon.

Lastly the lip products. I have become obsessed with buying lip products lately and these are three new favourites. 

NYX High Voltage Lipsticks | £5.50 | Link

These are insanely good and need more hype! They are the creamiest and pigmented lipsticks, I love them. I have the shade Flutter Kiss which is a mauve shade and Stone which is a darker grey toned nude. Both are gorgeous. I do have a NYX Brand Focus post coming up which includes swatches of these shades. 

Bourjois 3D Effect Lipgloss | £7.99 | Link

As Summer is coming I thought I would pick up a new gloss. I do like to wear gloss on it’s own sometimes but also on top of lipstick. This is a subtle light pink shade which looks gorgeous for those no makeup, makeup days. The brush is lovely, if you have seen the Kylie Lip glosses it has the same applicator. 

Now that was a big haul! I am loving everything I have tried so far and can’t wait to try the others out.
