What's New | L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper, Superliner, Voluminous Mascara and NARS Audacious Jane19:41
I didn't really pick up many items last month. Most of the products I purchased were actually repurchases of products I previously owned. Products that were also purchased recently but not pictured include MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder and MAC Luxury Powder Puff. I didn't bother to include them in this post as you've probably seen them many times throughout my blog.
I was running low on staple eye products - L'Oreal Paris Superliner (link) and L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara (link). Usually I alternate between buying the Superliner in black lacquer and the original black one. This time I went for black lacquer as I was reminded of how intense this shade was. I've also used the L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara for years. It definitely gives your lashes a thicker appearance. This mascara can be quite hard to get hold of at times as it's usually sold out! As Superdrug were having a 3 for 2 offer on their L'Oreal Paris products, I wanted my third option to be one that I hadn't tried from their line. After much deliberation, I decided to pick up their Brow Artist Plumper (link). Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is a fairly new product in their range. The Brow Artist Plumper is a brow gel and is used to set your brows in place. It is also said to intensify and make your brows appear more voluminous. I've never played around with brow gels so I was quite excited to try this out and so far I'm quite happy with it. It is available in three shades - blonde, brunette and transparent. I picked up the transparent one as I'm currently using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade therefore didn't see the need for a tinted one.
I'm sure I've made it very known that I've been desperate to get my hands on the new NARS Audacious lipsticks (link). With all the rave reviews, I really wanted to see what the hype was about (you know I always get sucked in). They are said to give opaque coverage in one stroke. A factor which some say justifies the price (£24). Initially I wanted the shade 'Barbara' (described as a tan rose) so badly but then 'Jane' (described as a terracotta rose) started calling my name too. As usual, I was torn between the two shades. Enough is enough with my love for nude lipsticks (for now) so I decided to pick up Jane.
Personally I would say Jane fell under the coral family and the colour can pull off slightly different depending on your skin tone. It's a lovely Spring/Summer colour and I look forward to wearing it during the upcoming warmer months.
One of my favourite blushers is the Sleek Sahara Blush (link). It's a nice warm toned blush that I would describe as an orange-brown. I would definitely recommend it to darker women, especially those who struggle to find blushers that lean more natural. I believe it's an everyday wearable shade that not only complements my skin tone but can be worn by a variety of people with different skin tones. For those that are darker in tone, scared of wearing blush and want to ease into it, this is definitely one for you!
Has anyone tried the L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper or NARS Audacious Lipsticks? Would love to know your thoughts on them!
