Winter metallic picks

With the party season fast approaching, glittery dramatic make-up will be EVERYWHERE! However with so many new products available following the metallic trend, you can easily incorporate metallics into an everyday look. Read on to see my top picks!

(L-R: L’oreal colour riche gold obsession in Pink Gold, NYX liquid eyeshadow in Night Glow, NYX indvidual eyeshadow in Vixen, L’oreal highlighter in L’or Highlighter)

I’ve been seeing bloggers obsessing over the L’oreal colour riche gold obsession lipsticks for a while. With the gold shade being featured across Instagram the most. However after a few quick swatches in superdrug, I decided that although the shade is very very pretty, I just didn’t find it very wearable! Or I’d probably wear it once a twice, and it’ll end up in the pile of lipsticks that are gathering dust. However the pink gold shade I choose is very pretty for a daytime look! It still gives your lips a gold metallic hue, but just very subtly.   The shade will also be perfect for a night-out look, when you want a more dramatic look on your eyes.

I choose the shade Night Glow from the NYX liquid eyeshadow range, because of it’s deep bronze shade. I tend to wear a lot of brown shades within my daily make-up routine, so I thought this eye-shadow would fit in to my collection nicely! I’ll probably wear the shade just on my crease, because it does appear quite dark once applied. I also choose the shade Vixen, also by NYX, just because of how subtle the shade is! Not only does it tone the shade Night Glow down, but would also double as a cheap highlighter!

After I purchased these products, I thought that’s enough for one week Luce, time to go home now! However then I spotted L’or Highlighter…and just couldn’t part with it! It’s so soft and silky to touch. And extremely pigmented for a drugstore highlighter! This is definitely the best powdered highlighter I’ve ever come across. Although I normally prefer a champagne shade, this is definitely a great alternative when I’m feeling the need for a more dramatic highlight.The product was sold out in Boots, but I was lucky enough to get the last one in Superdrug (when you come across it, you’ll understand why!) I’ve applied the product to the tops of my cheek bones, as shown below.
