Topshop Lip Bullet - a shot of colour for the lips

Topshop Lip Bullet in Covet

In a chubby plastic marker pen format which twists up to apply, the new
Topshop Lip Bullet, price: £8.00. There are five shades  - There She
Goes (a light pink), Rockabilly (a burgundy red), Covet (the colour I tested -
an almost orange pink peach with, I think, beige undertones), Heartbeat
(a dark orange pink) and Joyride (deep red). The lighter colours There
She Goes and Covet cause a cake icing, frosted effect. For more of a
matte lip colour look, I suggest you choose from the three darker shades
Rockabilly, Heartbeat or Joyride and build this lasting colour up.
With a soft sheen finish that is also moisturising, the Topshop Lip
Bullet is available now from Topshop stores £8 or buy online.

Superdry Beauty Professional Eye Shadow

        Superdry Professional Eye Shadow in
       Grape/Sunflower and Jade Green
The new Eye Shadows from the recently launched Superdry Beauty range are
described as, "highly pigmented", and can be applied either dry or wet, to
deepen the colour. The colour I tested was in Powder Rose for a
soft pearl effect in a warm pink nude. Wear this original formula dry
for a frosted powder pink. To apply wet, use a wet eye shadow
brush, a brush dipped in water. I recommend you apply one wet coat only
and apply it slickly for a professional look. Two coats look drier, an opposite
of the product's aim to deliver a, "super smooth formulation giving long-lasting colour". Alternate your look by using each half separately, wet or dry.

Superdry Professional Eye Shadow in Powder Rose Colour 
The Powder Rose Colour is an other-wordly shade to wear with jet black eyeliner. Packaged in brown card with contrasting graphics adding to the brand's allure, this Superdry Beauty Professional Eye Shadow comes with a weighty metal disc at the back of a clear plastic circular case which revolves the product outwards. Other colours in this range - Secura Blue and Jade Green £8 - 4.5g. Available also in Eye Shadow duos in contrasting colours £9.50 - 4g. Available to buy online or from Superdry stores in the UK and worldwide.

Max Factor CC Colour Correcting Cream - the original CC Cream makes a return

  Max Factor Colour Correcting Cream in Fair 30ml

Introducing the Max Factor CC Colour Correcting Cream £9.99 for 30ml, a small tube, in three shades Fair, Natural and Tanned with added moisturisers and SPF10. The latest CC Creams or Complexion Correctors use colour optics or smart colour-correcting technology to neutralise the colour of the complexion by blending away uneven skin tone, caused by redness, a result of broken capillaries, for example, or dullness or a grey complexion or a range of skin conditions including pigmentation and hyper pigmentation, the irregular lightening or darkening of the skin. The Max Factor CC Cream was launched previously by Max Factor in 2010 as Xperience, making it the original CC Cream, then a unique formula, now reproduced extensively by other brands. I found this particular Colour Correcting Cream provides a light or sheer to moderate coverage with a finish that, unlike ordinary foundation creams, needs no concealer or face powder, another idea behind the CC products. The Max Factor CC Cream fills open pores and softens fine lines and wrinkles also. It's lightweight, moisturising texture lends wearability and comfort, creating a glowing, naturally radiant finish. I suggest you wear your usual moisturiser before applying. The Max Factor CC Colour Correcting Cream, £9.99 for 30ml, an excellent product in three colours Fair, Natural and Tanned.
