Full face first impressions

Recently I've bought quite a few new makeup products all from different makeup genres like foundation and concealer etc so I decided to test out all the new products together and then get back to you at the end of the day to tell you what I think of them. So this is my complete first impression of these products as today is the first day I've tried them.

 For foundation I used the Rimmel fresher face foundation. I really liked the way this product applied as it buffed in to my skin really nicely almost as though it was a mousse formula. However I wasn't keen on the coverage as it just wasn't enough for me, I'd say it was light/medium. I also found throughout the day the foundation wore off on me and became patchy so by the end of the day I wasn't looking too great!

A new concealer I had to try out was the Rimmel match perfection. I was really excited to try this as it packaging and consistency reminded me of my beloved L.A. girl one. It provided me with really good coverage on my problem areas and was certainly very brightening underneath my eyes. I found it lasted on me all day as well unlike the foundation so this is going to become a much loved product by me I can tell!

To contour and set I used the Barry M chisel cheeks contour kit in light and used the middle shade to just bronze up my cheeks as I'm not really one for harsh contour and then the lightest shade to set all of over my face. I really liked the bronzing shade but I wasn't so keen on the lighter powder as it drew attention to the hairs on my face quite a bit and I've used others that are much better.

For eyeshadow I used the MUA palette in Undress me too and did a really simple eye look using the 5th shade on the top row as a crease colour and then the 4th shade on the bottom row all over my lid. I was incredibly impressed with this palette as the shadows were really pigmented, blended well and lasted on my lids all day!

For mascara I used the Maybelline big eyes and coated my lashes with it. It has two wands one for your top lashes and one for the bottom and even though I'm not really a bottom lashes sort of girl I really like the way this made them look. It didn't so much give my lashes volume but there was a lot of length.

Finally on my lips I tried out the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker lip gloss in rose and shine. It was just a really light pink shade that wasn't dramatic at all but gave a shine to the lips. I really liked the way this looked although I did find it a bit sticky when I first put it on and it didn't last that long.

So overall I was pretty impressed with al the new products that I tried and I really enjoyed giving you my proper first impressions. Thanks for reading.
