Next Makeup Review and First Impressions

Hi Everyone!

I’ve recently discovered Next’s new makeup range in store and I really wanted to try it! The overall look and packaging is lovely and there is a huge range of different products; I have only tried a small section of them here!

First of all I started with the Next Make Me Beautiful Face Illuminator; I used this after I had applied my usual moisturiser and it did exactly what it says on the tin! It’s illuminating without being glittery and gave my skin a gorgeous glow. I have dry skin so this really helped to brighten it but if you suffer with oily skin then this might be too much.

For my eyes I used the Next Make Me Beautiful Eyeshadow Palette, they have quite a few different choices but when I swatched this one in the shop I fell in love with these colours! The palette was £7.50 which is quite expensive for 4 eyeshadows in a high street store, but you get a lot of product for your money and I can see it lasting me for a long time! The eyeshadows themselves are very pigmented, they are quite shimmery and there are no matte shades in the palette. The eyeshadows blended easily and can be subtle or built up for a stronger look.

Finally I used the Next Make Me Beautiful Lip Chubby in Pure Nude. I purchased the 5 colours in a set and because of this they are the mini versions of their usual Chubby Sticks. It was only £10 which I think is amazing value and you get to try more of the colours than just purchasing one of the bigger ones individually! The formula can be quite soft and you do have to be careful when you apply that you don’t use too much, but they’re super strong in colour with a glossy finish which is really flattering. They don’t last for a long time as a matte might do but I didn’t use lipliner underneath so you could see the true colour and if you did, I’m sure they would last much longer.

I definitely want to try more of the Next Make Me Beautiful range, especially the eyeshadow palettes and the bronzer which looks like it could be an amazing dupe for the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick! Have you ever tried Next’s makeup range before? What did you think?
