Hello everyone! I hope you're all well and looking forward to your weekend ahead. In my last post I completely forgot to mention that last weekend I actually took the plunge and invested myself into a brand new Canon camera - the Canon EOS 1200D to be exact! I did use the camera for my last post, but at the time I still had absolutely no idea what I was doing with it so the pictures aren't the best quality in the world. Over the past week I've been playing around with settings and watching lots of YouTube videos on how to use DSLRs properly, so hopefully my photos will gradually start to become better quality!
I am so excited to take lots of pictures with my camera and just so you know, I didn't buy it purely for my blog (as I completely believe normal digital cameras work really well) but also because I have an interest in photography and have always wanted to own a good quality camera! Do let me know if you notice any difference in my picture quality or if you have any tips and tricks on using a Canon camera in the comments below!
Over the past couple years Soap & Glory has become one of my favourite brands to use. Their extensive makeup, skin care and body care range offer some amazing products and I have started to notice that I own far too many of them! The other day I decided to take advantage of Boot's latest deals on the Soap & glory products and pick up some new products as well as some of my essential products from the brand. The makeup is currently buy one get one half price and their skin care has up to half price off, which is definitely a deal not to be missed!
Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Shine Lacquer | £7.00 each | LINK
After trying their lip lacquer in Riot last year (read the post here) I told myself that I needed to try out some more shades from the line. As someone who enjoys a good coral lip, picking up Whatchama-Coral was a no brainer for me and was the first product to find its way into my basket. Whatchama-Coral is a beautifully intense coral shade with a hint of shimmer to it. As there has been lots of hype about a brown nude lip recently, I also picked up Charm Offensive to use as an everyday shade and again, it has an amazingly opaque finish with a slight shimmer. What I love about these lacquers is that they don't feel heavy or sticky on your lips yet still offer lots of colour. I also love that they feel smooth on your lips and apply really easily. I will be reviewing these 2 shades very soon, so keep an eye out for swatches!
Super-Colour Fabulipstick | £9.00 | LINK
The next lip product I picked up was another lipstick from the Super-Colour Fabulipstick line. I absolutely adore my lipstick in The Missing Pink (read the post here) and thought I should try out another shade that I could use everyday. As The Missing Pink is a pink shade, I thought picking up a more red toned lipstick would be nice to add to my collection. I decided to go for Perfect Day which is a natural red shade with a satin finish. These lipsticks feel so nourishing on the lips and I would recommend them to anyone! Again, I will be reviewing this lipstick soon where I will include lots of swatches.
Peaches & Clean Cleanser | £8.00 | LINK
Moving on to, what I'd like to call, my "staple Soap & Glory" products. Firstly I picked up one of the Peaches & Clean cleansers which is what I use to cleanse and clean my face everyday. I think this cleanser has some stick for being quite harsh and causing people to have allergic reactions, but I've never once has this issue - despite having very sensitive and dry skin! This cleanser removes all of my makeup and has really helped clear up my skin from blemishes. This is definitely a product I will keep repurchasing in the future!
I have been an avid fan of this mascara for years! The Thick & Fast mascara offers length, volume and definition to the eye lashes all in one nifty little tube. This is just an all round brilliant mascara and is always one that I come back to using. These mascaras also last a really long time without drying up but I always like to make sure I have a back up in my drawer at all times!
Archery Brow Tint & Pencil in Brownie Points | £10.00 | LINK
Finally I picked up one of my favourite makeup products I own, the Archery Brow Tint and Pencil. To me, eye brows are an important feature as they helped to frame your face - so it's essential to keep them looking their best! I find the tint side offers a really natural finish to your brows whilst at the same time making them look fuller and more defined. I really love that you get 2 products in one as well as I do like to use the pencil side if I'm going for a more natural look.
So these are some of the products that I have picked up from the Soap & Glory brand recently! I will definitely be reviewing the lip products, but if you would like to see a post on how I fill in my brows using Archery then do let me know.
Thank you for reading today's post!
