I had loads of posts planned to do this weekend, but a combination of my blogging mojo being off kilter and a busy Mother's Day 'weekend' put paid to that. But I do have a little haul for you...you know the drill - you go into Superdrug only looking for handwash and an invisible force draws you over to the makeup aisle, and haircare, and toothcare! Batiste is almost easily my most used product, I always pick up a can whenever I'm in Boots or Superdrug. I've known about Pearl Drops for at least 15 years but have seen some good things about it on blogs so want to give it a try!
You all know how much love I have for my rediscovered Max Factor Miracle Touch compact, so I was delighted to see Collection 2000 release a version. There are only three shades, but the lightest - Ivory - just about works on me.
It's developed a darker, oxidised layer in the pan, but the product underneath is far lighter. It was about £3.95 and came with a free nail polish, I chose a pretty pinky coral called Fruit Salad. It has very handy mirror in the lid unlike the Max Factor one, but the coverage is much lighter.
I have a mania for matte light bronzers and I saw Wildkatmakeup on YouTube recommending this one so I gave it a whirl. I've used it to contour my cheeks, and sadly it is slightly orange on me, but I'll get more use out of this in the summer when I tan up a bit.
I'm very impressed with the consistency, opacity, colour and finish of these Collection 2000 polishes. I haven't bought any from this brand in ages but will definitely be checking out more of the Hot Looks range. Very fast drying, no smudges (which is near impossible for me) and barely a chip even though I cooked a roast today and have done a fair bit of washing up un-gloved. Result!
I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day and spoiled your mummies or were spoiled if you are a mummy!
