The "Forgotten Make Up Bag" Haul | Beauty

The other week I did a very silly thing of leaving my make up bag at home, which meant that when I got to the gym to get ready after my workout I realised I had not a scrap of make up. What an utter nightmare. If I go to the gym in the morning I will do my liquid eyeliner and mascara before because it doesn't sweat off as I only do weights in the morning, so I don't get as hot. Plus doing liquid eyeliner can take a very long time to do. 

Whilst I was so annoyed that I forgot my make up bag in the Beauty Blogger in me squealed with joy because this meant I had to buy all new stuff, but my bank card was crying. I thought if I have to buy new make up then I should A) Buy something that I am definitely going to use again an B) Buy something new, or at least new to me. Now, I know what you're thinking, did I really need to buy two make up brushes? The short answer is no, but I hate putting foundation on without a brush. I was looking for a new make up brush anyway so I wanted to try out the RT one but the EcoTools Kabuki brush was just too pretty to say no to but a perfect brush for the bronzer ay? 

So the first product I bought was the Rimmel Natural Bronzer in 022 Sun Bronze, I use my contouring palette but sometimes you just wanna add a bit of a glow to your face instead of going contour crazy. This is a really nice shade, not orange at all and it's almost matte. I shone a bright light on it which did pick up some very small shimmer particle but it almost unnoticeable. I was quite surprised when I put it on, it's a very natural glow I just have to remember not to be too heavy handed with it! I also go the Sleek Make Up CC Cream, which you already know I love.

Next up we have another Rimmel product which is the standard Soft Kohl Kajal eye liner pencil, to be honest there's not much to say about this product, it's great, it works, I'm happy with it. The other product I was super excited to try out was the Soap & Glory Archery eyebrow pencil in Blondeshell. I'm very impressed with this product, sometimes I find it very hard to get a good blonde shade for my eyebrows but the main reason I love this is because the nib is so small you can get a very natural look, I don't like over done eyebrows especially on blondes. The little brush on the end is very handy too. 

Last but not least is the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche in J Lo's Nude, I actually really wanted Rimmel's Kate Nude shade but the selection was incredibly limited in the Boots I visited so I went with L'Oreal instead and I am so happy I did. This lipstick also smells amazing. I'm going to write a separate post about it. 

Have you ever forgotten you make up bag?
