hey dolls! just a quick one today. i went into town to return something to boots and ended up spending 45 minutes browsing various makeup counters, resulting in a hefty bill of cosmetics when i finally got to the till! in my defence i did need a new foundation after my HORRENDOUS experience with bourjois healthy mix (sob sob). i actually loved the product but ever since the second time i used it, the pump wouldn't let out any product, despite there being plenty in there. i would definitely buy it again for the quality of the product but i couldn't bring myself to buy it again just yet and face another 2 months of aimless pumping!

i ended up buying two foundations today, one which i have used in the past and always seem to go back to - revlon photo ready in the shade '004 nude'. the other was rimmel wake me up in '103 true ivory'. after reading many reviews about the latter product i decided i'd give it a whirl so a review about my experience will be up within a few weeks time! staying with skin perfecting, i also purchased the collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer in the shade '2 light'. i was sceptical after hearing about this product, mainly because, in a naive moment, i didn't think collection 2000 would have much to offer. HOWEVER! i used this on a photo shoot recently and couldn't believe the coverage. it is creamy and light but covers almost any blemish/spot so i couldn't resist buying myself a tube, and at £4.19, you cant go wrong! 

another trusty product i always seem to go back to is the '070' eylure lashes. these lashes are perfect for a natural but glamorous look and can be worn day and night. i have worn these lashes on multiple occasions and can definitely recommend!

last but by no means least, LIPS! i bought two lip products today, one gloss and one 'butter'. the gloss is by barry m in the shade '11' which is a beautiful corally pink. i have used barry m lip glosses before and adored the texture as they're not too sticky, but this is a new shade for me so i'm eager to try this out! the second product i purchased is the almighty revlon lip butter. i got the shade '080 strawberry shortcake' and OMG i wore this on my lips this afternoon and my first impressions are very good! they smell gorgeous, the packaging is beautiful and the 'butter' is actually highly pigmented. i will be reviewing this product properly after a few weeks of use, but as a first impression, its looking positive! 

have you guys tried these products before? anything i should know?!
have a lovely weekend - lets hope the weather stays as nice as its been this week!
