Beauty | What's New In My Make Up Bag

So I've been a bit spendy this month when it comes to make up, however it is all drugstore and I just felt that I need a switch up with my current products to update my current routine. So what have I been buying?

Well I knew a new foundation was needed for general everyday use, I work long hours so wanted something with a bit more coverage and stay power. After watching Em from My Pale Skin, Drugstore Spring Make Up Look on YouTube, I really liked the look of the Revlon Colourstay Foundation. I've got the oily/combination formula in the shade 220 Natural Beige.

I've also picked up a few concealers, well four to be exact! The L'Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer to try and brighten my under eye bags, Bourjois Radiance Reveal as this states to be hydrating and I've been finding my skin to get a little dry lately. I also picked up the Maybelling Fit Me Concealer as I've heard a lot of bloggers stating that it is a good drugstore dupe for NARS creamy concealer. And finally another trusty Collection Lasting Perfection concealer as I find it great for covering up blemishes and red areas.

I ended up falling in love with the look of the amazing L'Oreal Glam Bronze Terra Bronzer, it reminded me of Guerlain's Terracotta bronzer and is big enough to last me a long time. It has a tiny bit of shimmer which is great for now we are approaching Summer. I also picked up Collection Matte Bronzer as I wanted a cheaper matte bronzer to carry in my handbag for top ups.

Also from Collection I picked up their Speedy Highlighter in the shade Pearl Sheen. This looks super handy for applying highlight quickly on the go, hence the name Speedy! It's not too shimmer either that it will look great for everyday use now. And finally from Collection I picked up The Work The Colour Eye Shadow Pencil in the shade Vanilla Sky. I love using eyeshadow pencils during the week if I'm running late and find that a cream shade works as a great base/primer.

In a bid to save some money I decided to pick up an Eylure DyeBrow Kit to tint my eyebrows at home. I've given this a whirl already and can notice a difference, however I think I need to leave the tint on longer to get a more defined shade.

I also decided to order a NYX Matte Lipstick in the shade Butter as I had heard that this is one of Khloe Kardashian's favourite shades. However it looks a little wishy washy on me at present but hopefully when I'm rocking a tan it will look like a great nude shade.

Finally, even though it's not make up I thought I would share as it was purchased in the same trip to Boots as most of these items. The new Soap & Glory Shower Jelly in Sugar Crush, we all know how much I love this scent as I have the fragrance, body butter, shower gel etc. So can't wait to get using this in the shower as it's perfect for Summer.

Have you tried any of the new products I've purchased? What's new in your make up bag this month? Would you a more in depth review of any of the products mentioned?
