Brand Essentials - L'Oreal

I had a bit of a makeup clear out the other day and realised that whilst I don't have mass amounts of L'Oreal in my collection, what I do have is actually brilliant. 

If you'd asked me a fortnight ago what my 'holy grail' foundation was I'd have said the True Match, but boy has that been blown out of the water. I have kind of combo (mainly dry at the moment) skin so I went out and bought the non matte version of this first. I hated that so much that I donated it to my sister without giving it a second shot. She loves it btw! I then decided to take a punt on the matte version. Best decision of 2016 so far. I love it! It's medium/high coverage so if you're after something more natural then this is not the one for you. I find it covers redness but I still need to conceal any spots. This will settle around dry patches (obviously! It's matte) but I don't personally mind a little bit of extra blending throughout the day.

I've had the super liner in my collection for about a year having received it in one box or another but it was in green (not the most everyday shade). I don't know why it never occurred to me sooner to pick it up in black. It's by far the easiest pen I've ever used to do winged liner. I think it's because the pen is long and easier to hold than most liquid liners I've tried but if you are someone who struggles to do the whole winged thing then I'd definitely recommend trying this out.

Volume Million Lashes had been my favourites mascara for many years. I have new 'favourites' every now and again but this will always be my first recommendation to anybody. It is super black, defines well and dries quickly. 

I currently have a bit of a palette obsession, I can't stop buying them. Because this isn't new to me, it's definitely fallen by the wayside in favour of my more recent purchases. This is the Rosé version of the 'La Palette Nude', which is not as pink toned as the name implies. I don't do pink shades on my eyes because I have pretty heavy pink undertones and that would be horrendous but there's only really one shade out of the ten which I don't think I'll ever wear. Special mention goes out to the shimmers (of which there are six) for being really pigmented and not at all glittery.
