Something a little different today, this is a 'Get The Look' set from 17 that I won in a tombola. Strange I know, lucky too as it was the reason I wanted to play it in the first place! So happy I won it.
What does this set contain I hear you ask?! Well it contains 3 items, a lipgloss in the shade In The Nude, an eyeshadow in Statuesque and a cream bronzer/blusher. The reason I wanted this so badly is that it was coming into summer and I wanted to get a bit of a healthy glow going. That being said, I am very pale so it has to be subtle. I don't intend to get any colour over the summer, but a bit of a glow would be nice!
Now personally I wouldn't wear all three things at the same time. Probably because I don't like brown shades on my lips, although I do think they suit some people. However I will say that the lipgloss is one of the few I've tried that isn't overly sticky and gross feeling on the lips.
I've worn the eyeshadow the most and I love it! It's a beautiful bronze colour with some rosy pink tones. The camera doesn't really pick it up which is a shame because it's beautiful! I thought it would be lost in my eyeshadow collection as it was too similar to all the other neutral shadows I own, but it really isn't. I use it with my Naked palette a lot. To see me wearing it look here.
I like the idea of the bronzed cream blush, but in reality it's too shimmery and orange for me. The colour just doesn't suit my skin tone, it would work for people with more tanned skin I think. It has a lovely creamy consistency, as you would hope, and it blends really well.

I'm afraid I couldn't tell you how much this would cost to buy as I won it. The only item I've used more than once is the eyeshadow though, so I'd recommend that on it's own. You can buy Statuesque and other shades for £3.89 on the Boots website. It's the one that's pink, which is a bit strange as, to me, it's only got some pink undertones. I like the look of a few other shades too!
I just want to add that I'm sorry for not posting much recently, I've just not been feeling inspired to write and I've been busy/tired most of the time.
Thanks for sticking with me and thank you for reading!
