Since it is now officially Autumn, I thought I would share some of the latest releases from Make Up Gallery at Poundand. I am an ambassador for the brand and I am excited to share some of these fab new products with you.
I always have a re-think about my make up look with the changing of the seasons and at just £1.00 per item, you can really go to town on your Autumn make up look. These Make Up Gallery products should be available in your local store now, so look out for them when you're next out and about.
First up are these new matt lip colours available in 4 shades. Vintage Pink, Cherry Pop, Purple Pop, and Latte. They look quite gloopy and shiny on the swatch, but they do go on much better and definitely dry with a matt finish, really quickly. My favourite shades for Autumn is the Latte. I was very impressed by the longevity of these lip colours. You might expect that they would stain your lips 'forever' with them being matt, but this is not the case. The colour lasted until I had a meal or big drink. I don't mind re-applying though, it's better than that perma-stain you sometimes end up with. Another thing to point out with these, is that they are not drying on the lips, which is especially important on chilly, windy days.
Glide Away Eyeshadow sticks
These eyeshadow sticks are my favourites from the things I have been sent to review. I love the colours and the fact that they are shimmery on application. The darkest colour, Smokey Grey is great for the smokey eye look, as you would expect and the Frost Shimmer and Pearl sheen make brilliant highlighters.
They blended well, but if you over do it and you are more mature, like me, you might suffer from creasing. I plan to use them with powder eye shadows as a shimmering add on to my usual evening look.
Define & Conquer Contour Kit
I must admit, when I saw the contour kits in my review pack, I did a little gulp. I'm out of my comfort zone with this product. It's a relatively new concept and not one I have experimented with at my age. I have read the reviews from some of the younger ambassadors and they report that it is a product that blends well without an orange look, which sounds good to me. These kits do seem like such good value though, as the ones I have seen at other budget make up counters are around the £6-7.00 mark. I think I would use the lighter shade as a highlighter on my cheekbones on an evening out and the brown shades as Autumnal blusher shades as a change from pink or peach.
This range just keeps on growing and it's such good value. I must report that the foundation I started to use in my last review for Make Up Gallery, remains a firm favourite. I just love it's mousse texture. I hope I have inspired you to give some of it a try.
