This look is super quick and easy to do and I've been really enjoying wearing it on those days when I have to be out of the door in no time at all. The stars of the show are these three lovely products.
From back to front - Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Blusher in Pinker Belle (review here), Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick in Nude-ist and Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye shadow in On and On Bronze
The great thing is that all these products are cream-based, so you can just slap them on with your fingers, which I think is a great time saver. No faffing around with brushes here! The swatches from left to right in the photo above are Pinker Belle, On and On Bronze and Nude-ist. I love the rich, jewel-toned effect of the three products together. Perfect for this time of year!
As I mentioned before, I have already reviewed Soap and Glory's cream blush here on the blog and I still wear it regularly. It's a lovely product to have and much easier to top up on the go than powder blush. Equally, the other two products have become firm favourites with me over the last couple of months, so I feel it's only fitting to mention a few points about each one.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze - I am quite possibly the last woman on the planet to buy one of these and now that I have, I can't get enough of it. One quick swipe across your eyelids and it looks like you've spent hours with a palette and blending brush. The shimmer of this particular shade is just gorgeous. I find a dab of my trusty Collection concealer underneath helps the colour to look slightly more intense and last for longer. If you are organised enough to have an actual eye shadow primer I imagine this would work just as well! I definitely want to get more Color Tattoos.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Nude-ist - There are some products you're just always excited about using, even when the novelty of them should have worn off ages ago. That's definitely how I feel about this lipstick. It's like silk to apply and dries to the loveliest matte finish. Plus, it lasts practically untouched through a huge Sunday lunch - believe me, I have subjected it to some tough tests! The shade Nude-ist is just beautiful. I'm not sure if it is actually supposed to be a nude; it certainly isn't on me, but I don't mind at all. And needless to say, I want all the others. Why do I feel like I say that about every product in every blog post?!
Here's the finished look.
