Today's Fotd (minimal eyeshadow).

Hi there, hope everyone's well and happy :)

I just thought I'd post a quick Fotd and some products I'm very much enjoying at the moment.

I was in that cheap bargain shop the other day, browsing and not planning to buy anything as I'd just bought a load of lippie from Boots, but then the word 'Stila' caught my eye.
So I walked calmly over to see if my eyes were deceiving me, and they weren't :)
I've been on the lookout for the perfect natural eyeshadow for ages, as my favourite Mac Steep eyeshadow is almost finished :(
Yes, so I picked up the little packet and it was an eyeshadow by Stila in Dune, and it is the most perfect natural eyeshadow for me.
I love wearing allover the lid and brow bone all by itself, with just a bit of brown eyeliner and L'oreal Architect Mascara in Brown.
Nice easy, peasey natural eyes :)

Next product is Givenchy's Blush in Euphoric orange. I've had this since before Christmas, and it was an impulse buy, and because it's fairly bright it's scared me a little.
However lately I've felt the courage to try it, and it's not that bad. It's more of a coral shade and it does look quite natural on me for some odd reason.
The application is smooth and just a dream to apply. It gives a lovely glow, even though it's not shimmery or frosty (which I find Mac's MSF's can be).

In Boot's I saw these L'oreal color Riche Serum Lippies and I HAD to have one, so I bought Freshly Candy.
This colour reminds me of Mac's Pink Nouveau (I need to compare, can't remember where I've put Pink Nouveau, I shall have to find it).
These lipsticks have a very cute moisturising centre (which remind me of hearts) and that is where the Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid is kept.
I find this lippie very nicely moisturising, even though it feel's a tiny bit heavy, but the nice moisturisation makes up for that.
It also lasts quite well for a lipstick too, I'd definitely purchase more of these.

This is what L'oreal say's about this product:

'L’OrĂ©al Paris Boosting Serum Inside is our first lipstick with a serum heart, enriched with ingredients from our advanced skincare technology, Collagen and Pro- Xylane®, chosen for their moisturising properties.Lips are plumped with moisture, defined, and enveloped in voluptuous colour that doesn’t feather. Available in 8 sumptuous new shades. '

And that is what sold me,lol.
These Lipsticks are £8.99 in Boots (there is a 3 for 2 offer on at the moment though).

And so here's the whole look :)
I'm also wearing Korre's Wild Rose Foundation in WRF2 and some of Bobbi Browns creamy concealer under the eyes, and other imperfect areas.

Thanks for reading and Take Care :) x
