Surratt Artistique Blush - Ponceau

I just love trying new brands and when I was in Liberty the other week I decided to check out this brand I hadn't tried before, but looked like there were a very interesting range of products. The brand is called Surratt and is a makeup brand from makeup artist Troy Surratt.

I really liked the look of the blushers and the color I went for is called Ponceau which is a coral color. Apparently the products can be bought in a refillable version or in just regular packaging. I do love it when a brand offers refill versions of their products. As I hadn't tried this brand before I decided on getting the blusher in just regular packaging.

The pigment is just amazing. The color builds up really easily and you don't need to use a lot to get it to show up. The texture is nice and soft too. As the color is so pigmented, it is best to gently tap your brush into the color and build it up. It's a lot easier to build up, rather than try and tone a color down.

Once on it didn't fade or need reapplying. I'm really loving the blushers from this brand.

Lipstick Queen Cupid's Bow - Eros

I just love lip crayons. They are easy to use, come in a range of colors and make a great alternative to a regular lipstick. Last year I tried Lipstick Queen's Cupid's Bow, which are basically Lipstick Queen's version of a lip crayon. The other week in Selfridges I decided to get another one of them as I thought they were amazing. This one is called Eros and is a shade of hotter than hot pink.

I just love lip crayons as they are so easy to use. This one is great because the pigment is amazing and you don't need to use a lot to get plenty of color on your lips. The texture is nice and creamy too and glides on smoothly.

If you love bright pinks, this color is a must. Once on it didn't really need reapplying either. I just love the color, it's a fab one for people who love bright colors.

MAC Harrods Kinda Sexy Lip Palette

When I was shopping in Harrods the other week I had a look on the MAC counter and noticed they had a lipstick palette exclusive to Harrods. I love exclusive products, especially if they look amazing too. 

This palette has 6 lipstick colors in it - Kinda Sexy, All Fired Up, Lady Danger, Candy Yum Yum, Ruby Woo and Flat Out Fabulous. It also comes in this really amazing packaging with Harrods on the front. 

I'm sure all of the colors are available separately from this palette, but it is a great way to carry all the colors around with you, especially if you travel. If you love colors that stand out, this is definitely the palette you want to go for. Although if you prefer something natural then there is one color you will love in this palette - Kinda Sexy.

My favorite colors were Candy Yum Yum and All Fired Up.
