Hi Everyone!
So today I am showing you a part haul/ part tutorial post.
A few days ago I went into my local Boots store and bought myself some products from Natural Collection and Rimmel London. So I thought I would tell you a bit about the products and give a little day makeup tutorial using the items I purchased.
So first up I'll mention the new Rimmel BB Cream I bought in shade Light. So everybody knows the basics of BB creams now, they are good for the skin, and also have toning and primer properties as well as a colour pigment. The Rimmel one claims to be 9-in-1 as a primer, moisturiser, pore minimiser, concealer, high coverage, smoother, mattifier, brightener and skin protector- WOW. I thought, all that in one tube? I had to try it out and I am really impressed, it stays put and is just the right consistency, colour and weight for me! also guys I think there is a 2 for £10 offer on all Rimmel products if you're interested ;) 
Next up are the Natural Collection products, which are all fragrance-free and only £1.99 each or when I went it was any 2 for £3.50 so I spent a grand total of £7 on the following:

Pressed Powder Foundation in shade 'Neutral'
This is a very light shade but it is very natural and it works perfectly dusted over the BB cream, This product also does well to lighten up your complexion if for example your foundation was a shade or so to dark. i find it makes my skin feel really soft and it helps mattify my skin reducing any oily shine!

Pressed Powder Blush in 'Peach Melba'
This shade was really appealing, I wanted a new blush but I didn't fancy the generic pink/rosy blush, so I opted for this, it is more of a dark coral/rose shade, but not so dark that it could be mistaken for a bronzer! It just adds a nice, subtle warm glow to your cheeks. Perfect for the coming Autumnal chill!

Eye Lines Eyeliner in 'White'
I've been searching for a white eyeliner for a while now, as I know that having white on your bottom waterline is said to make your eyes look wider and bigger. Some people use it on the top waterline too for the Anime Eyes effect! I shan't be sporting bad but have a look at the photos below to understand what I mean if this is new to you.

Moisture Shine Lipstick in 'Pink Mallow'
Now this is slightly different for me, I usually opt for the bold pinks, reds and the occasional coral shade. In other words I usually want to make an impact with bright lips. But when I saw this lipstick I really took a liking to it, as it is a nice subtle colour but it has this soft pink tone to it that really does live up to its name, not only do my lips feel soft like marshmallows but they're pink too!

So that's the rundown on the products I bought, now here's a quick tip on how i styled them!
( P.S. sorry about the photo quality)
