Maybelline Mastersculpt Contouring Palette

Maybelline mastersculpt contour plaette

When it comes to contouring, it can be daunting even to the professional make-up experts. Especially if you want to use one of the bigger more creamy palettes, that let’s face it look a bit like war paint. So when it came to trying out Maybelline’s new Mastersculpt Contouring Palette it was a sigh of relief as it is so easy to use and can really create a gorgeous contouring effect.

So what is contouring? Well it is a very carefully sculpted way to enhance and define your facial features, chiseled cheekbones anyone?  This 2 in 1 palette from Maybelline has a matte contouring powder on the left hand side and a sheer highlighter on the left. I really loved the powder format of these compared to cream formulas I have tried before. I think cream is perfect for a very contoured look, think Kim Kardashian and perfect to do when you are on going on an evening out with a lot more time. But the powder is perfect for every day, which is something I never really thought I would do with contouring. I really liked how the powders were matte and not shimmery, so my face didn’t end up looking like a glitterball.

Kefalonia, Greece

Tesoro Blu Hotel Palms in Kefalonia

I’m back from holiday and well feeling pretty sad I’m not still there! Kefalonia was the most beautiful island in Greece, it was so lovely and sunny, with beach trips each day and the feeling of being very chilled out was just what we both needed. I managed to read a whole book whilst I was away, something I haven’t done in a long time, it was ‘The Girl On The Train’ if you are interested and it is an amazing book, well worth a read. This of course inspired me to start my writing again of my own book as well as the laid back attitude on the island combined, I have realised I need to take a small step back from blogging – just a little of course and really concentrate on the other things I want to achieve. I also didn’t take my Nikon camera with me on holiday as I didn’t want to lug about a big camera and also to stop me blogging everything and just enjoy some actual time off. However I did take my Olympus camera to take some holiday shots for myself, but I of course couldn’t resist sharing.

Top 10 Cosmetics Under £10

When it comes to beauty, I do like my high-end products but I also like plenty of lower priced products too. I do believe that you can find many a gem when you pop into Boots or Superdrug, just because a product has a high price tag certainly doesn’t mean it’s any good and well let’s be honest we’d all rather waste £6 on something that isn’t that good than £60.

So for this Sunday’s video I thought I would share with you my top ten cosmetics under £10. These are all available at your local chemist and/or drugstore whatever you want to call it and I have also got a few amazing dupes in there for luxury brands. So go ahead and watch and pick up those bargains!
