I mentioned in my recent Louise Loves post about a lip combination I have been using a lot recently. I wanted a lipstick which would give the 90s style nude/brown effect which are all over the place at the moment and I was lucky enough to find it in Superdrug for under a fiver!

I have been through numerous of Liz Earle's Eyebrow Pencils (review here) now so I decided to try something a bit different. The Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel has been around for a while but only recently have they added a wider colour range. Strike was the original which is for brunettes; they have now added Glimpse for redheads; Awe for blondes and Stare for dark brown/black hair. I went for Strike as although my hair is light brown with blonde through it I prefer my brows to be darker.

I bought this necklace a couple of weeks ago from H&M for £7.99. Now, I am the sort of person who wear the same 2 costume necklaces on rotation so I thought I would mix it up a bit and get some new ones. I am on the look out for longer ones as the ones I usually wear are short chunky pieces. I got a lovely one from Topshop but it broke the day I got it so I took it back and didn't bother getting a new one. This H&M one caught my eye because it looks much fancier than it is. You can't see in the photo but chains are actually beads which are multi-facetted which makes them really sparkle in certain lights. I love that I can just wear a plain top and throw this on and it looks like I've made more of an effort!
Gosh Nougat Crisp Lip Liner & Make up Revolution The One Lipstick
I wanted to find a product which would give me the sort of nude/brown 90s style lips that are all over the place at the moment but I have quite strongly coloured lips so I wasn't sure if it would suit me. I found this combination in Superdrug for a total of about £5 so I could try it out without spending too much money! The liner is really nice, it's a softer version of the colour of my lips and it applies easily. The lipstick is a semi-matte nude and works well on top of the liner in the middle to lighten my lips slightly. I will do a separate post on this with photos of them together on my lips. I also got another lipstick which is more nude and true matte but I haven't tried this properly yet as I loved the first one I tried so much!
Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel
I've had this for a while now but I'm going to be honest, it scared me a bit! I was really excited when it first arrived in the post but when I tried it out I realised you can't just paint it on as you would with a pencil or eyeshadow, so I took to youtube and found some gel brow tutorials and now I am loving it! I am going to do a post soon to show you how I use it, what tools and other products I use it with.
