What's New In My Make-Up Case?

After a tough couple of weeks, I definitely needed a treat and we all know there's no better way to do that than with some new make-up! It had been a while since I added to my make-up collection and I was super excited to try out some new things, both cult classic products and some brand new products from an old favourite brand.

Everyone knows I'm partial to a good ol' matte lipstick (seriously, can you ever have too many shades of matte nude?!) so I couldn't wait to try the very original matte liquid lipstick from Lime Crime, a brand I've heard so much about but never actually tried for myself. The Matte Velventines are the queens of the liquid lipstick and were actually the first matte lipstick I ever heard of. Cult Beauty very kindly sent me over a selection to try and oh boy am I glad they introduced me!

In case you don't already know, Cult Beauty lives up to it's name exactly and sells only the best of the best, the cult products that us bloggers especially know and love. It's easy to see why the Lime Crime matte lipsticks are part of Cult Beauty and I've barely left the house without one in my bag over the past few weeks. Not only do they dry on your lips without actually drying them out but they last all day. I drink a lot of tea during the day and only towards the end of the day was the my lipstick starting to get a little bit patchy. The lasting power of the lipstick is incredible and if you're someone who doesn't have a lot of time to top up during the day, these lipsticks are for you!

So the second new lot of make-up I've been trying is the brand new, hot off the press make-up range from blogger favs Nip + Fab. The new range is absolutely huge with a massive range of shades, products and prices to get everyone in the beauty world excited and I've been testing out a few of the staples from the collection. Following on from the Lime Crime matte lips, I've also been trying out some of Nip + Fab's nude matte lipsticks and I'm impressed. The Tart Matte Liquid Lipstick is what you'll have seen me wearing in a few of my Instagram selfies recently and I love it. It's a very soft nude colour with warm undertones and again, the formula of the lipsticks don't dry your lips out. These lipsticks actually feel slightly different to the other matte lipsticks I've used in the past as although they are highly pigmented, the consistency isn't as thick and heavy as a lot of other brands are so they don't completely suck all the moisture out of the lips.

Probably one of my favourite things I've been using from the collection is the Highlight Palette. Oh boy, anyone who loves a good ol' highlight like me will need this in their collection. I didn't think I needed anymore highlighters or highlight palettes but that was until this bad boy came into my life. It's been my go-to palette for when I want some glam for night out and being honest, I didn't think some of the darker shades would suit my pale skin but they've actually ended up being the shades I've used most. They've given my skin a real natural glow, catching the light and creating a beautiful, soft glimmer on my cheekbones.

Another really cool product in the range is the Foundation Dark Mixer and the Foundation Light Mixer. When I opened the package, I'll admit I thought "what the bloody hell am I meant to do with that?!" but actually, these are something that your make-up bag will appreciate greatly, especially in the coming summer months. We all know how annoying it is when your favourite foundation is now the wrong shade because you caught the sun on England's one sunny day or because you got a tan on holiday or you accidentally bought a shade too dark or light for your skin. These little wonders help customise the foundation shade to your skin tone and help you get an exact match. I've been using the dark one with one of my foundations that I already had that was waay too light for me and it's been an incredible tool to get the most out of my make-up collection.

The range offers so much more than what I've just mentioned as you can see in the photos and if you're a fan of Nip + Fab already or if you wanted something new to give a go, I'd highly recommend this range. Plus, the packaging is just so sleek and Instagrammable too which really appeals to my shallow self - it's just so pretty!

Have you been trying anything new recently?
