I thought that the time was right to take a look at some more make up bits that were both influenced by other bloggers and worth all the hype that they receive.  I can be worryingly weak when it comes to caving in and buying products based on what I've heard about them, regardless of whether I need them or not, so it's always a great relief when they turn out to be as good as people say!  

I'd only seen one or two posts featuring the Maybelline The Nudes palette, so it wasn't totally blogger-influenced - I snapped it up because I couldn't believe that a nude set of 12 eye shadows was only £10.  This palette definitely wins best value for money, I've used every one of the shades at some point, and all of them are of good quality and have good pigmentation.  
NARS Walkyrie Velvet Lip Pencil was included in my last Cohorted Beauty Box, and it was love at first sight.  I love lip crayons in general as I find them so easy and quick to apply, but the formula of this NARS one is super soft and truly earns the Velvet in it's name.  I love this shade too, it's the perfect day to night colour.  
MAC Velvet Teddy has had more than it's fair share of hype this year thanks to Kylie Jenner, but it really is a gorgeous deep plummy nude shade that is super flattering.  
Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze is just the dream.  I think I've gone on about it enough on this blog already, but if you want a bold metallic shade that doesn't crease, then this is it.  
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow is a product that I could talk about again and again and again!  It makes it so easy to contour, the shade is brown toned rather than orange, so it's as natural looking as you're going to get; and the highlight shade is luminescent without being shimmery - total perfection.  

Let me know what products you think are deserving of all the hype they receive!  Do you love any of these bits? xx

  6. I love the CT bronze and glow it's lovely, every time I wear it I'm asked what highlight I'm wearing, the colour tattoo's are brilliant aren't they? I do prefer mac paint pots but I think for the price the colour tattoo's are brilliant, I have a Nars satin lip pencil and it's the most long lasting lip product I own, I love it!! I must look at that palette it looks great :) fab post lovely xxx
