Illamasqua and Barry M Lipsticks

Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick – The Antimatter lipsticks have a lovely semi-matte finish which is between a matte and satin.  As it’s not completely matte it’s not overly drying on lips and is highly pigmented with one swipe leaving lips with a bright, vibrant colour.  I have the shade Hadron which is a gorgeous lilac shade and is perfect for brightening up dull dark mornings.

Superdrug Natural Radiant Eye Cream – I’ll have a full review of this eye cream up soon but I’ve loved using it.  The cream aims to reduce dark circles, leave the eye area looking smooth and feeling moisturised.  Keep an eye out for the full review!

Josh Wood Radiant Shine Hair Oil – I got this in last year’s Mark and Spencer’s Beauty Advent calendar but only just got round to opening it recently.  The oil can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment, leaving it on for a while (I usually leave it on for about 15 minutes) before washing or as a shine treatment to use once you’ve styled your hair.  I’ve tried it both ways and the lightweight oil is easily absorbed by the hair leaving it soft, shiny and helps to moisturise dry ends.

NYX Professional Make-up Setting Spray – The setting spray certainly rivals the Urban Decay setting spray.  I decided to give this one a try after seeing some good reviews and I agree it is amazing although I’d say that the Urban Decay one keeps make-up on a little longer.  I used this recently when I was going to a wedding and need my make-up to stay in place all day as I didn’t have room in my clutch bag to fit everything in.  I do sometimes find that I have to touch my make-up up a little towards the end of the day.  I’ll have a full review of it up next week.

Illamasqua Lipstick – I picked up this matte lipstick in the Illamasqua sale and I’ve been using it most days since.  Resist is a gorgeous dark pink shade that has amazing colour payoff and lasts all day.  As it’s completely matte I do find it can be a little drying on lips so you definitely need to wear a little lip balm underneath.

Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit – I love the Barry M Lip Kits, you get a liquid lipstick and matching lip liner for only £6.99.  Runway is a beautiful berry shade which I think is perfect for autumn.  Make sure to check out my full review of the Runway Lip Kit.
