Just My Look Beauty Haul

With a new season comes new makeup, and there is nothing better than a good old haul of items you didn't know you needed. And you probably didn't. But look how pretty.

Just My Look is a website just like your FeelUnique and Beauty Bay where you can get loads of brands of makeup straight to your door. More importantly, you can get Milani makeup. Which I love. They very generously let me chose a couple of items off their website to give a try so I'm going to share with you all the exciting goodies I've been testing out recently. 

Starting with Milani. Which I love. Don't know if you know. I've got my infamous Milani Luminoso blush which I adore so I've wanted to really try out a couple more of their blushers to see if they are equally as good, so picked up the Milani Powder Blush 'Romantic Rose'* a gorgeous matte dusky pink. Although I love my muted shades, I have to say my blushers are usually products that are the brightest in my collection. Not only is the packaging gorgeous, the shade and quality of the product is as usual, outstanding from Milani. I know that this will for sure become an everyday staple in my everyday makeup collection. Although it is quite a muted dusty shade, the pigmentation is intense, so you only need a very light hand! 

Sadly the Milani Make it Last Setting Spray which I really wanted to try was out of stock on the website, so instead I've been trying out the Milani Make It Dewy Setting Spray*. As someone with dry skin anything that can hydrate my skin and give it a bit more of life is definitely going to be on my radar. Although I was a little hesitant that this would make me look like an oil slick, it's surprisingly hydrating. It doesn't move any of the products underneath and although I wouldn't say it necessarily 'sets' your makeup or makes it last longer, it does at that boost of life to your complexion and sort of helps fuse all of your products on your face together.

Onto some other brands, I picked out the Sleek Blush 'Rose Gold'* which I can't even tell you how long I've wanted this for. I probably do not need anymore blushers as it's something I have the most of in my makeup collection, but I couldn't surpass the opportunity to finally have this in my collection. It's known quite wildly as a dupe for the Nars Orgasm blush but I never knew how one could actually wear a shimmery and rose-gold blush without it just looking 'too much'. Sleek is another incredible drugstore brand that I highly recommend because the quality of the product is outstanding, the blusher is easy to blend, pigmented and you don't get a lot of kick-up.

The final product had to be an eyeshadow palette. I've not tried much from TheBalm, so I thought picking up the TheBalm Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette* would be a great place to start. This has all those shades I love in a palette, your warm shimmer neutrals perfect for everyday. I love this palette because you get such a great variety of shades because the shadow pans are that little bit smaller. The quality of the shadows is amazing, very creamy, however you do get a bit of kick-up when dipping your brush in. My favourite shades would have to already be; Fearless, Faithful, Firm and Fit. I was quite disappointed by the shade Flawless as I thought it would be a perfect brown transition shade, but on my complexion it's a little muddy and grey rather than a true brown however instead it may work for an eyebrow shade...

Let me know in the comments below if you've tried any of the products mentioned and whether you loved them or not!
