These odd shaped little sponges have been creating a buzz amongst beauty bloggers for some time. As Ive always been quite happy using a foundation brush or traditional sponge to apply make up I didn't rush to try them out but curiosity got the better of me and I'm so glad it did. You wet the sponge and then wring it out until its dry and after dotting foundation on use this little gizmo to blend it into your skin. The end result is completely flawless finish.
I'm a total convert. You can pay anything up to £25 for some high end versions to £5 for a bag of twenty from China. This one which I got from Superdrug works a treat and I will be getting lots more for my pro make up kit.
MUA Poptastic Eyeshadow Palette £4
|Pop goes the eyeshadow|
As the nights draw in I'm finding I need to brighten up the day with a bit of colour in my make up. This palette is a total bargain and the pigment isn't bad at all. Ive been favouring the pinks and purples with lashings of black eyeliner but am also going to do a smokey eye with the blues as well.Little tip when using "thinner" eye shadows with less pigment use the sponge applicators to pack the colour onto your lid. Use your brush afterwards to blend it all in.
Batiste Dry Shampoo Fruity and cherry £1.99

Rimmel Kohl Kajal Eye Liner £2.99

Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub £9.50 and The Righteous Butter £10.50
Now its colder and the central heating is pumping out I find my skin starts to feel a little bit dry all over. These two bath goodies are ensuring I stay as soft as a kittens paw. The scrub is made of oats, Shea butter and sugar and the body butter contains aloe vera and Shea butter. They smell good enough to eat and the generous sized pots mean these will last well into next year.
