The Colour Of Summer

Before I go any further who else is so excited that bake off is back? I am!!  I think I already have my favourites and some of the cakes last night looked awesome! Now that I have expressed my excitement for cake I can move on to talking about orange. This summer I have had a real think for orange make up wise so I thought I would share with you some of the orange products I have been loving this summer. 

Bourjois Cream Blush in 02
This is my first cream blush from Bourjois and I have to say I am very impressed. In summer you can't go wrong with cream blusher and this one is really lovely. The colour is a beautiful coral orange colour which can be really easily built up for a brighter look but also can be used lightly for a more muted look. Texture wise this is really nice, it blends really easily and has a powder finish. Overall if you are looking at getting a cream blush, you should really give this little one a go.

MUA Blusher in Bon Bon
Staying on the blusher front I have also been loving this MUA blusher. I think MUA own it in terms of cheap blushers, they are so pigmented it is crazy!! I really like this one because it has a really lovely orange tone to it. Apply this lightly to the cheeks and it gives you a lovely orangey glow.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya
Now this has been a firm favourite since last year. I think these lip butters in general are awesome, the colour is really nice and pigmented but they also feel lovely on your lips. I don't actually know what colour papaya's are but I imagine they must be a similar colour to this lip butter? This is a lovely light orange coral colour which is perfect for a day time orange lip. Gives your lips that your lips but oranger look!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain in Rendezvous
If you are after a brighter orange lip, but not too crazy then this is perfect. This is a pretty true orange colour but not so bright that you look stupid! Again the texture of these balm stains are amazing and creamy but have such great colour pigmentation as well. These also smell so good, sometimes I just want to give them a lick!

MUA Eyeshadow Trio (Not Sure Of Name)
Another MUA goody. I have a few of these trio's but this one is my favourite and I really like this colour in particular which is a lovely coopery orange. These are suprisingly pigmented for the price and also last for a fairly long time, with a primer. This colour is a lovely all over lid colour and looks beautiful with a dark brown blended into the crease.

So they are all my orange products, can I just say how pretty are the flowers in my photo, I got them from Aldi for only £2!! I'm off to have a little chill out now, I had a hard afternoon of spending money so need a little rest now! Please give me a follow on Bloglovin so you can keep up to date with posts. Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading,
