Sainsburys Makeup♥*

Near enough every shop has their own makeup line nowadays. From New Look to Asda, and now Sainsburys. I wasn't actually aware that they had their own line - very rarely do I go into Sainsburys - but when I was emailed about trying some products, I was intrigued. 9/10 times are the lines just as good as some makeup lines you find in Superdrug, Boots, Debenhams etc.

C'est La Vie*; On average, I'm not really a blush gal - I just never really bother. I own a few powder blushes but cream blushes are something I hadn't ever tried before this one. The first thing I noticed was how sleek and smart the packaging was - minimalistic and plain but I feel it still has pleasing aesthetics. The colour of the blush itself is gorgeous - as it's on the darker side, it will be more appropriate in the Autumn time I reckon, but as it's a cream concept, it might be better during the warmer months.

Chock-A-Block*; Lately, I have been absolutely loving bronzer, it makes such a subtle change to your overall appearance, and no complaints that it warms up my pale complexion. It's extremely pigmented and a small amount is all that is required. Even when I accidentally apply too much, it blends with ease and it doesn't appear orange toned either. I love how it warms up the complexion whilst giving definition at the same time.


Turn A Blind Eye; a beautiful golden shade with undertones of brown. It's extremely pigmented and creamy, so as you could imagine, blends with ease. It's a stunning shade, ideal for all over the lid. If you read this blog regularly, you will know I adore golden eyeshadows, so it's no surprise I adore this one. It's quite a shimmer, metallic shadow.

Blaze Of Glory; another golden shade, my love. As the first shadow, it's creamy and blendable, making eye makeup as easy as pie. It has the perfect undertones to compliment blue eyes, and can create either a basic or complicated look.

Wouldn't Bat An Eyelid; a delicate and girly lilac shade. Unlike the previous two shades, it matte, but, I feel that it isn't as pigmented which is a slight let-down. It's the perfect shadow to create a soft eye look with.


Mum's The Word*; such a pretty natural, peachy shade. I would describe it as a "your lips but better" shade. I was thankful the first time I used it as I was expecting it to be sticky, but my thoughts were wrong. For a supermarket lipstick, it has quite a colour payoff, considering it is quite a light shade. It looks lovely with a bold eye look, or paired with the most simple of looks.

The Coast Is Clear*; what more can I say than it's just a clear lip gloss? Honestly, I'm not that big a fan, and it's nothing to do with this lip gloss itself, it's just that I don't particularly like clear lipgloss. I feel they don't really do anything for me, and to put it simply, feel they're a tad boring.

I must say that I have been blown away by Sainsbury's Boutique range. As many stores have their own makeup, I feel they must be a bit "meh", but I have to say that this range is up there. The bronzer has been my absolute favourite item and have been using it every day religiously.

Have you tried Sainsbury's Boutique Range?

  6. Ooh I have never noticed this before in Sainsbury's, that being said I very rarely go down the makeup aisle so that is probably why! The bronzer looks really nice.
