Hi, lovelies! So, I accidentally (maybe) bought more makeup. I know I said I was on a spending ban, but as soon as I saw the L’Oreal Summer collection I just had to have it. I thought I would share with you what I bought in my L’Oreal Summer Collection haul and my reasons (other than just wanting to buy all the pretty makeup). Basically, I wanted to look tanned and glowy af.
L’Oreal Paris Back to Bronze Matte Bronzing powder – £8.99
I initially bought this because I have been on the lookout for a new bronzer for a while now. If you have followed me for a while you know I use my trusty Hoola bronzer and my Primark Chocolate face palette. I always go for matte bronzers, otherwise, I tend to look like a shimmery mess. I was drawn to this one as it seemed quite dark, whereas all of my other bronzers are super pale. I know this seems strange, buying a dark bronzer when you’re pale as hell. I thought it would be perfect for general warming up of the face, as all my current bronzers are quite cool toned and so are more of a contour. I am super excited to try this, and fingers crossed I won’t end up looking like a muddy mess.
L’Oreal Paris Glow Highlighting Powder palette – Sunset – £9.99
Yes, I bought another highlighting palette. I had to okay. L’Oreal has brought out two highlighting palettes in this collection, Sunrise and Sunset. Sunrise is much cooler toned with some beautiful pinks and lilacs. Sunset is more of a warm palette with champagnes and golds. Obviously, I went with Sunset as I am a scaredy cat who doesn’t venture out of her comfort zone. I always like a more golden highlight, and the shades don’t look too dark for my skin tone. This palette does have a stunning purple shade which I think would look great on darker skin tones. I have high hopes for this palette!
L’Oreal Paris Bonjour Sunshine Liquid Bronzer – £8.99
This purchase was a bit of an impulse buy! I have never in my life used a liquid bronzer, ever. I think this product will be like marmite, I will either love it or hate it. I’m not gonna lie, I mainly bought it because of Boots’ fab 3for2 offer. This bronzer would be perfect in the summer, to get that bronzy look without looking too dry and cakey. I thought it would be great for a no-makeup, makeup look to just add a bit of warmth and glow to the skin. Keep your fingers crossed for me guys!
L’Oreal Paris Bonjour Nudista Skin tint (Fair) – £9.99
I was super excited to see this in the collection, it went straight in my basket. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I have been doing a lot of running recently. I don’t like wearing makeup when I run (obvs that’s a bit gross), but I am also not that confident in my skin. I thought a BB cream would be the perfect solution to give a tiny amount of coverage without being all caked up! I am also going Interrailing in the summer, so if this works out it will be great to again cover up some blemishes without sweating off all of my makeup. I am so excited to try this product, and I will let you know my thoughts.
L’Oreal Paris Life’s a Peach Blush Powder – £8.99
I did not need this. I very rarely wear blush, as I nearly always end up looking like a clown when I attempt to wear it. But if you have been following my blog, you’ll know that I’ve been wanting to wear blush more. As it was 3for2, I knew I had to get it and give it a go. Can I just say how cute all of the names in this collection are? Adorable. This blush is a beautiful peachy shade which I think would look stunning with a tan. I am definitely going to persevere and give this blush a proper try, it is too beautiful not too!
L’Oreal Paris Glow Mon Amor Highlighting drops – £9.99
So this is the product that started my spending spree. Damn you Facebook ads. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. I chose to get Champagne, as I thought it would look beautiful both on my pale skin and with a tan! I never really use liquid highlighters (I’ve still yet to try my Barry M ones…oops). But again, I think it would be perfect for the summer time to add a bit of glow without a full face of makeup.
So that’s what I bought. Thank god for Boots’ 3for2, am I right? I am so excited to try these products out! Fingers crossed I will be bronzed and glowy this summer! Let me know in the comments if you would like a review on any of these products (or all of them).
Have you tried any of these products? Are they right up your street? Do you want that bronzy, glowy look this summer? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading,
