Happy New Make Up Day

Hey Dolls :)

Leading on from my last post, the flip side to that is when you get new make up that lives up to your expectations - that indeed is a happy new make up day! That happened yesterday when I received my mini swap package from Tiffany. I had offered to pick Tiffany up a bourjois bronzer that she couldn't get in the U.S and in return Tiffany sent me another of the N.Y.C blushable creme sticks, this time in Berry New Yorker.

Out of the three of these I've tried, I think this shade may be my favorite. It's a bit different to my typical fail safe pink blush - on my skin tone it comes out as a light bronze (so not very berry-like but still lovely). On application, I've found the easiest and most natural way is to apply quite a heavy amount on the back of my hand and then using a duo fibre brush (I use M.A.C's 187) I swirl the brush on the apple of my cheek. Even though it is a cream product, the blush doesn't drag or streak - I really love them!

Tiffany also included a really pretty cover girl lipstick in 395 darling Cherie

In the bullet, the lipstick looks like a pretty light pink however on the lips it translates a little darker - colour wise it reminds me of a darker Angel by M.A.C. The formula is lovely, it has a lovely sheen that actually stays on the lips for quite a long time and also feels quite moisturising to use.

I immediately used both products yesterday morning to work, here's how they both looked on.

Both such pretty products! Again thank you so much Tiffany!! If you haven't read Tiffany's blog Will Work for Make Up you need to - I genuinely trust Tiffany's opinion on products so much plus she is a beautiful and genuinely lovely person!

Lots of Love
