Spring Makeup Purchases

Bloody hell, I swear this was entirely accidental! I don’t generally tend to follow the trends (except maybe my beloved Rimmel 107 ♥) but my recent purchases seem to be absolutely perfect for spring. What have I become?!

I bought the W7 palette in TK Maxx a couple of weeks ago. It was only £5.99 (RRP £14) so I snapped it up. They had loads of other W7 palettes but the colours were quite similar to other palettes I own already, so I picked up In The Nude and I’m so glad I did as the colours are absolutely gorgeous!

There are a great mix of matte and shimmers in the palette and a lot of pinky tones which I’ve never appreciated before. I’m really not a pink kinda girl.

The slightly lighter colours definitely worked better with an eyeshadow primer (I used Makeup Revolution I ♥ Makeup Eye Primer – Wow) but they still look really pretty 🙂

I also accidentally bought a lipstick (although technically it was free as I used some of the Boots gift card I was given when I left my last job, so that’s okay, right?) This is the Rimmel Kate lipstick in 08 and it’s such a beautiful pink colour. I really want to wear more lipsticks this year and I’m loving the Rimmel range for their colours and durability. I know I’ll be wearing this a lot over the next few months 🙂

    1. Thank you! I’m actually wearing both today, the sun is shining and there are daffodils everywhere! It definitely feels like spring 😁😁

  1. Love the spring colours in this! I can’t wait to start purchasing and wearing some spring things 🙂 Need to work out what will and won’t go with my new hair colour in my current collection first and then go on a spending spree!

    1. I’m really pleased with it, the colours are lovely and the pigmentation is great!
      I can’t stop wearing the lipstick, it’s amazing! Xxx

    1. Definitely! I have one UD palette which I won in a competition 😄 but if they were out of the boxes in not sure I could say which one was which!

  2. I really love this blog – you’ve given me inspiration to experiment with my makeup, and I’ve been loving the things I’ve tried and am building confidence to try new things, like lipstick! I never thought I’d suit it, but I love this spring colour. I purchased it today to give it a whirl – its still only going to be worn around the house till I get used to it, but the colour is beautiful! Thank you 😀

    1. Oh I’ve not tried the 03 yet, I’ll have to try it out next time I’m in town! I think W7 palettes are known as great dupes for UD palettes 🙂 x
