3 New Things I'm Loving

So I've been a little spend-happy over the past few weeks and let's just say, the postman is not very happy with me lol. I think it's because my mood has been a little low and I've basically just been buying things to try and cheer me up I think. But I thought I'd choose 3 things out of everything I've bought over the past few weeks that I've been loving and also explain why I love them so much.

Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette
So the first thing I want to say is: How the heck have I lived without this palette? It's got so many pretty colours and there's a good mixture of shimmers and mattes, the pigmentation is so lovely and I totally understand why people say it's basically a dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 3. The best thing about this palette is the price, it's only £4! I already own the Iconic 2 palette so I knew that these palettes are good for the price but I think this is my new favourite product from Makeup Revolution. 

Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner
So some people may find this weird but I'm not a huge facial toner fan usually. I find that toners break me out, it doesn't matter how much I spend and what brand it is, they tend to break me out. So I usually just double cleanse and then moisturise. But I've recently discovered 2 toners which I really like - The Garnier PureActive Sensitive Anti-Blemish Tonic which I talked about here and obviously this Simple one. I find this one is better for everyday use and it's so refreshing, it really affordable and it doesn't break me out if anything my skin has been acting a lot better since using this and a few other new products which I'm going to be talking about in a blog post in the next few weeks.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - London
I know this is probably old news but this lip cream is just basically life. It suits all skin colours and surprisingly suits my snow white pale skin too. Because of me being so pale it does give out the orange/coral tones more but I still love it. I wear it so much and I love that it isn't too drying and it's a great everyday shade.

  14. The Makeup Revolution palette is such a good dupe for the Naked 3, it would be interesting to try both and see the comparison.
