I always struggle to feel inspired when finding new makeup and try to look in places you wouldn’t usually look, such as your go to beauty destinations, like Boots, Debenhams and Superdrug. You can usually find great deals and offers in these places at competitive prices and if you’re willing to try new brands or be pleasantly surprised at finding brands you already know and love. Here’s my favourite places to have a mooch around in when I look for new makeup buys.

While at the Kat Von D Blogger Event I was given the opportunity to try a Lock It Foundation. This is something I had been dying to try for years as I had heard friends and bloggers online rave about the coverage and lasting power of the foundation.
The shade range available ranged from very pale to deep tones so there is definitely an option for almost everyone. If your shade is slightly off tone, you can mix the Lock It Concealers in to get your perfect shade.
Time trialled; 7 months
Shade chosen; Light Neutral 45
Cruelty free; Yes

Read on to see what went on in this special evening!

I kindly received a box of W7 goodies to try and throughout the month I’ll be writing how I got on with the products and how they slotted into my usual routine. The one I was most concerned about switching in my routine was the primer. I’m a big fan of my Iman Time Control primer, Nyx Angel Veil and Nyx Primer spray and it is hard for me to change my mind when I’m happy with something in my routine. Whenever I hear the word “Pore” in a primer, I do cringe. Silicone based primers rarely sit on my skin and I find that any primer that tries to be a dupe of Benefit’s Porefessional slides off my skin. However I’m always up for trying new things so I gave it a go.
Retails at: £6.95
Trialled for: 1 month

While shopping in Mcarthur Glen I managed to pick up an Ultraflesh blusher. I’ve heard good things about their products in the past so I was excited to be finally able to try a product of theirs.
I picked up a rose gold blusher, which is out of my comfort zone and a colour I want to try and wear. So basically this was a kill two birds with one stone moment for me! The colour didn’t look too bright and just had enough of a shimmering glow to it that didn’t look too much for me to handle.
I paid £4.99 for this, but it does retail for around $30.

So I took the plunge and bought some Poundland makeup. I’ve seen it on various media websites with mixed and good reviews and while I was in town I decided to pick some products that I would use in my everyday looks.
I picked up a few but today I decided to review a nude lip liner, which I know would be a tough test as I do not suit nude lips at all, as my lips are very red without product on, and the liquid liner because I’m a liquid liner hoarder.
Both were priced at £1 per item, and the same goes for the whole line of products.
Time Trialed: 3 weeks.

After being invited along to the Lauder blogger’s event I was sent some Michael Kors makeup to test and review for my blog. This has taken a little longer to review as I have never tried out Kors products and I wanted to get a fuller view of how their products last on the skin, and I’m also at the end of my 1st year Art university course so I have been extremely busy!
I was randomly sent a bronzer, two nail polishes, a lipstick, fragrance, and lipgloss to try!
Each collection is split into three, for a day time look, mid day, and evening. I was sent a selection of each collection!
Time trialed = 1 Month
