The new kids on the block

I feel like recently they're has been a huge influx of new brands on the beauty scene. Today I thought I would share with you my thought on some products I've picked up from some new brands. I've got two new brands to Boots, a new brand to Superdrug and the new Asda makeup range. 

Obsession is a new brand to boots and comes from TAM beauty who are the umbrella brand that makeup revolution and I heart makeup come under. The range of products is fairly limited or at least the range in my local boots is. I picked up three of the matte lip kits and one of their liquid illuminators. The lip kits are all really lovely nude everyday shades, I think there are more shades however these three where the only ones my local boots had. These are very similar to the makeup revolution lip kits and I have been really enjoying the formula. The liquid illuminator is a beautiful duo chrome pink shade which I am so obsessed with. Again very similar to the makeup revolution ones and something I would definitely look into buying more shades of. 

The other new brand to boots is CYO, I believe that these are a replacement to the Seventeen range from Boots which I am actually really disappointed to hear that they are being discontinued. That being said the bits I have tried from CYO so far have been very impressive. I picked up a couple of powder products, the first being a matte bronzer which is a really lovely basic matte bronzer. I also picked up a trio illuminator which has two shimmer shades and a matte shade which is very similar to the bronzer. This looks so beautiful swirled together as a highlight/blush or the colours can be picked out and used individually. I also bought a lip liner which I have been really loving and I am definitely going to go and pick up some more shades as they are so creamy and comfortable. 

New to Superdrug is the Bleach London makeup range. This range largely focuses on custom palettes however they do also have other products such as liquid highlights and brushes. The eyeshadows come in a huge range of shades and are so pretty. I have actually filled up a nine pan palette and I also have a bigger palette with a couple of shades in as the range is super huge so there are a lot of shades that I didn't already have in my collection and I couldn't resist. The pans are also only £3.00 which you really can't complain about. 

Finishing up with the George at Asda range which is definitely the one that I bought the most from. the new range is super beautiful and is so affordable I just couldn't resist. The only thing I am yet to try is the cream eyeshadow which is a stunning bronze shade, it's very creamy I just haven't given it a go yet. The powder blush and bronzer are beautiful, super pigmented but also incredibly easy to blend and wear. The cosmic blush is something I have been using as a highlight and blush topper and I am so obsessed. It looks so beautiful and gives the face such a healthy luminous glow. Then for lips I picked up on of the matte lip shades and one of the satin shades. Both look stunning and wear beautifully. The matte one is so creamy and comfortable yet looks really matte. The satin reminds me a lot of Mac's satin formula both comfortable and creamy but not too creamy. Finally I picked up a lip liner which reminds me a lot of the CYO one. Very creamy and comfortable. 

That's it for today's post, have you tried anything from any of these brands? 


  1. I've not tried anything from these brands but I spied the obsession brushes at my local boots and was so tempted to get them - love the marble! xx

  2. I recently tried the Cyo mixing cream and it was really nice - I'll have to check out their stand again soon :) Bleach London sounds really cool too!
