a proper peachy makeup post!

I am completely in love with anything to do with peaches, the scent, the colour, you name it. So clearly, anything makeup related I can get my hands on that has a peachy vibe is an absolute dream! I thought I’d put a few of my favourites together in one peachy post!

Gerard Cosmetics ‘Slay All Day’ Setting Spray

I am obsessed with this setting spray, it’s changed my makeup game completely. This is one for all my oily skinned lovelies! Considering I’ve got quite oily skin I need a setting spray that’s going to combat it and this one is perfect! It is formulated as an oil control mist which is designed to keep your look in place all day despite any oily skin attempting to make your makeup cakey or settling into the fine lines of the skin. When first applied to the skin there is a burst of refreshing fragrance and an immediate cooling feeling on the skin, it really feels as if the makeup is being locked in place. There are 11 scents available which really impressed me as this is a huge range! They differ from peach (my absolute favourite), green tea, watermelon, grapefruit and many other delightful scents. I swear by this setting spray to keep your makeup looking perfect all day, it really works wonders for me as it also leaves the skin with a gorgeous glow which I can’t get enough of! Not only this, but it is one of the more affordable setting sprays I’ve found that actually works, it retails for £16.50 for a 100ml bottle from beautybay.com. When you compare this price to my other favourite setting sprays such as Urban Decay’s All Nighter which retails for £23.50 or Skindinavia’s Post-Makeup Recovery Spray which retails for £22 it’s clear Gerard Cosmetics is the best price. This setting spray definitely does what it says on the tin, lets you slay all day!

Too Faced ‘Sweet Peach’ Palette

I am completely and utterly in love with this palette. From the first moment you lift the lid on this beauty the most gorgeous peach aroma fills the air and you can’t help but breathe it all in. It is the perfect peach scent, I really can’t tell you enough how gorgeous it is. In this palette you get 18 beautiful shades that are very varied so the list of possibilities for eyeshadow looks are endless. The first half of the palette contains the lighter, brighter pinky shades which then go into the darker more brown toned shaded towards the right side of the palette. These eyeshadows are absolutely to die for, one of the best formulas I’ve come across from any brand. The pigment from the shadows is unreal, one swipe and the colour is incredibly opaque, this even goes for the lighter shades such as ‘white peach’, ‘georgia‘ and ‘peaches ‘n cream’. The shadows are so buttery when swiped from the pan, they just glide over the skin and are incredibly easy to blend, something which is a must have for any eyeshadow formula in my kit. God bless ‘Too Faced’ for releasing an entire peach collection!

Sleek Cosmetics ‘Life’s a Peach’ Blush

I am such a fan of blush! A lot of people tend to steer clear of blush but I really couldn’t complete my makeup routine without it, it just puts that lovely warm bit of colour back into the cheeks. This blush is one of my absolute favourites as, not only is it peachy, but it’s the perfect colour between pink and orange. The formula of this blush is amazing, it’s a powder blush and sometimes you have to be wary of fallout, however this blush has very little fallout to contend with. It’s formula is quite buttery so it’s very easy to blend on the cheeks which is important when it comes to blush as less is more. The more blended a blush is the more of a soft, natural effect you get which is why this blush is perfect for me. A definite must have for the winter season!

So there you have it, a few of my favourite peachy products! I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did be sure to give my blog a follow to keep up to date with my posts! Until next time!
