New beauty buys I'm loving

I've done a bit of makeup shopping recently as I've found my love for makeup again! I've been watching so many beauty bloggers and makeup Instagram accounts and completely fallen in love with trying out new products and creating new makeup looks, especially for the eyes!

I recently purchased a few makeup bits as I wanted to try out some new products that I hadn't before. Some of them are completely new in choice of branding but some are brands I'm aware of and have been so amazed at reviews and swatches.

Primark is a place I only ever go to for clothes and clothes only. I've never even properly looked in their beauty section before. I worked in Primark last year for a bit and got to know a lot of their stock and different products they have to offer and I must say that there is a lot of beauty products in Primark than you think. They offer skincare, hair care, makeup, nail care, bath and shower stuff, makeup bags, the whole lot. I will just say here and now that it's really good. The quality is amazing and the pricing is just the icing on the cake. I never thought that their makeup would actually be any use to me or would I even have some of it in my makeup bag or my favourites in my blog post. Never!

I purchased the "my perfect colour" foundation a couple of weeks ago and I haven't use another foundation since. The coverage is surprisingly thick and it's definitely long-wearing. Going to be a bit gross here but the other day I was wearing this foundation as we went out to a family party, the foundation lasted the WHOLE day. I got so tired that I actually slept in my makeup because I'm so lazy and gross. The foundation was still on my face the next day, I was in genuine shock because usually I wake up looking like Mr.Blobby because my foundation has gone crazy. This foundation only costs £5 and is cheaper than all my other foundations yet so much better! It's like a beauty miracle!

Something I've never tried out with makeup before are highlighting drops that you can mix in with your foundation to get that glow. I've seen so many people use them in makeup videos, I've always thought they look kind of cool. I love the way the bottle looks and how perfect they go with foundation. I use a highlighter cream underneath my foundation anyway as I love a healthy glow to my makeup as my skin is so dull-looking at the moment. These drops are actually pretty good, they leave such a pretty glow onto your skin which genuinely makes you look healthy. It has no weight to it which is also really handy as I hate my face feeling like it has tonnes of product on. The glow on it's own is also enough to use as just a highlighter in itself as it's so pigmented.

I love colour correcting and have done for over a year now. I learnt more about colour correction in college and have been using it myself ever since. I never thought that it would actually help out and cancel out certain areas that really bug me, such as under my eyes, my redness and yellowness. I usually use the NYX colour correction palette and a cheap one from Just essentials. I bought the collection lasting perfection concealers in green and purple, the other colours were sold out but I usually only use these colours anyway. these ones are just like the original concealer but obviously do different things. I think they work really well and do the job well, it covers everything up so well too.

I've heard SO many reviews on this concealer. I first heard about it on their Instagram page and then from Rachel Leary. It's supposed to be the cheaper alternative to the Tarte shape tape concealer. I couldn't agree more. I've only ever used the collection lasting perfection concealer as that's the only concealer that's ever amazed me personally, but after using this I don't think I can go back now. The quality of this concealer is AMAZING. It definitely conceals really well as my face looks so flawless after using this concealer. It's amazing. I knew that after watching Rachel's video that I was instantly going to get it because it looked awesome on her skin and the coverage is great too!
