So this is a bit of a cheat but I’d be thinking of restarting my ‘Face Of The Week’ to get my blogging mojo back on and give me a vague weekly structure and when I did this GRWM (Get Ready With Me) earlier this week I thought I’d use it to kick us back off. All but for the concealer (which I’m struggling with) I’ve pretty much stuck to these products for the past few days. The stand outs are the brows.. Already knew I’d love the pencil (although it keeps snapping which is annoying) but the brow gel is very nice and not something I’d usually be super bothered about in my routine. The blush (not shown) is also really lovely and will be one that stays in my rotation as will the liner (barely shown) – so blendable and a softer shade that black. I knew I would like the shadows, nice and pigmented but warmer than I expected. In the picture it looks warm but in real life one half looks quite cool and taupey so I was marginally disappointed but there’s always room for more bronze shadows! Lastly the lipstick was brighter and more pink than I’d imagined but still very pretty and a really creamy matte texture. I topped it off with the peachy gloss to tone down down the pink, not at all stick and just as buttery as the name suggests.

I will do a few more posts on the American makeup Marnie sent to me once I get around to playing with it all.. there were A LOT of lip products so maybe a Spring 30 lips in 30 days is in order. There were some bits and pieces she sent that were duplicates/I already had them so rather than keep them and potentially never use them I decided to give them away to one of you lucky lot. It will be a UK only giveaway (sorry) and all you have to do to enter is subscribe to my YouTube channel. To find out what you could win skip to the end of this video..
