Origins, Peeper Pleaser in Golden Ticket, £15

Yummymummyrating 4.5

Straight from the catwalks this autumn, metallics are one of this season’s make-up musts. Origins powder shadows just last and last, and this beautiful coppery-gold is super flattering for all eye colours, plus we love the mineral-rich formula which won’t crease, slide or fade away.

For a winning look, team Golden Ticket with a soft charcoal grey pencil and big bold lashes. Just add a luscious nude lip for a gorgeous autumnal look.

Benefit, NEW They’re real! push-up liner, £18.50

Benefit, They’re real! remover, £14.50

Yummymummyrating 4.2

Designed with a new style nib Benefit’s new push-up liner hugs the lash line giving a precise application for some serious all day and into the night staying power. The high level of smudge proof staying power is the real selling point here, because to get this off in a jiffy, the ‘They’re real! remover’ does the job where other removers epically fail! I know it’s a little bit spendy, but I’d advise this remover is definitely worth the cost.

The liner is not perhaps for the eyeliner first timer, but the Stylo gel pen glides on to give 24 hour superfine graphic lines, whether your loving your cats eyes or rock flicks. Add to this a coat of the Beauty Behemoth that is the zillion selling, ‘They’re real! Mascara’ and you will simply have eyes to die for, mama!

Clinique, NEW Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for eyes in Plush Periwinkle, £17

Yummymummyrating 4.7

I am absolutely loving the Chubby Sticks for eyes range from Clinique. These Shadow Tints stay put all day with no creasing, come in seventeen pretty shades and are just so easy to use. The smooth formula, which contains Vitamin E, is a godsend for more mature eyes, making blending a pleasure not a pain. These little beauties twist up, so no need for sharpening and fit snuggly into my make-up bag, perfect for application on the go.

Check out the rest of the Chubby Stick family: Cheek Colour Balm, Lip Colour Balms and new Baby Tint Moisturising Lip Colour Balm. Just too cute!

Clinique, NEW All about Shadow singles in Black Honey, £16.00

Yummymummyrating 4.3

Clinique’s All about Shadow range is quality all the way. The single shadows fit snuggly into their handy mirrored compact, the colour is heavily pigmented, so no need for fiddly reapplication and a little goes a long way.

Their ‘Black Honey’ shade is a sumptuous purply brown, which is perfect for creating some sexy September smoky-eye!

ColorBurst Lip Butter, REVLON, £7.99

Yummymummyrating 4.5

Try REVLON’s new lipsmacking Sugar Plum shade, a deep plummy pink or choose from their classic Wild Watermelon, Juicy Papaya, Sorbet or Pink Lemonade. These lip butters ramp up the moisture levels by a whopping 156% by including Mango, Shea and Coconut butters for super hydrated lips. Just perfect for those crisp autumn mornings.

I absolutely adore these Lip Butters, they have that quality balm/gloss hybrid feel and offer the stunning colour of a much more expensive lipstick and, at this price, buying three for two – on offer right now at Boots – it’s a great way to build a collection.
