A Few Products I'm Loving...

BarryM Foundation Creme in White (£6.19)

I was trying to think of an alternative to MAC White Face & Body when filming a video the other day and I seemed to remember (somehow, I don't ask me how!) that BarryM do a white foundation, that might be a good dupe. Figuring I shouldn't be recommending things without actually having tried it, I popped down to Superdrug to pick some up for myself!

I can't say I'm blown away, but it does exactly what it claims to. It's thick, creamy, pigmented & blends in beautifully into both the skin on it's own and with other foundations. It cost only £6.19 so if you're on a budget, then this will stretch your foundation of choice the whole year through, into the winter days when you need a shade or 2 lighter.


Accessorize Baked/Merged Blush
I also finally succumbed to one of the Accessorize blushes after seeing Cami rave about them in at least 2 videos! I picked up 'Starlet' and it has been love on first swatch! Aside from the absolutely stunning packaging, the product is beautiful - it gives the freshest rosiest glow, with just enough of a subtle shimmer. It's divine! And at £6, I can probably pick up another shade without it breaking the bank!


Accessorize Eyeshadow Palette in 'Gamble'
The last little find was this palette from Accessorize. The colours caught my eyes as just a nice neutrals - nothing too sparkly, dark etc. And it's really pretty! Again, it was about £6. The colours all work well together and are very blendable.



The little tube of E/S primer that comes with it
