First Impressions FOTD

I had a bit of time before I met up with my best friend for a photoshoot yesterday. I decided it would be a good idea to try out some of the new make up I bought when I was in London and I am quite happy with how it turned out. It worked really well for the photoshoot. So here´s the finished look and my first impression of some products.

Face - Maybelline Dream BB Cream, Manhattan Powder Mat Make Up, Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Cheeks - Borjouis Chocolate Bronzer, P2 Beauty Stories Blush, Topshop Glow
Eyes - Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette, Catrice Liquid Liner, Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express Mascara
Lips - Tanya Burr Lipgloss

I´ve been using the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer for a while now and I quite like it. It doesn´t have the best pigmentation but it stays matte all day. I am in the process of fully testing it against my other concealers to write a full review on it later. I also used the Real Techniques Powder and Shading Brushes for the first time - well I used the Powder Brush before but how could I not. They´re incredibly soft and blend out everything so well.

Topshop Glow is something I have never tried before. I like it but I am not sure how much you can actually see it on my face. The same goes for Borjouis´ Chocolate Bronzer. Maybe I should have bought both a shade darker. I also still need to find the right way of applying both but that is something I will work out when I use them more often.

I could also finally use Tanya Burr´s Lipgloss in Aurora. I first thought it would be a very subtle color but I was quite wrong. The lipgloss is quite opaque and therefore still changes the color of my lips as well as adding glitter to them. It smells absolutely amazing but I haven´t gotten around to tasting it yet - or I haven´t noticed the taste yet. The only thing that bothers me a bit is how sticky the lipgloss is. I´ve used some lipglosses that aren´t sticky at all but this one just catches my hairs and never lets them go.

All in all, I can say that I am really happy with my buys and I didn´t waste a single penny. Time will show if my opinion of the products will change with further uses but I don´t hope so.
