Make-up is a definite essential here at the Amazing Blog so we were very excited to try the new products by Jane Iredale. We were lucky enough to try theMoonglow Bronzer, Flirt lip balm and a Magic Mitt from their make up collection.

Contouring and highlighting has become a bit of an internet sensation over the past year, so if you've been as fascinated as we have then you should definitely try the Moonglow bronzer. It comes in a stunning rose gold palette, with four gorgeous shades for you to experiment with. Given the time of year, being able to get that golden bronzed holiday look without having to spend all your money on an actual holiday is all we want. This is definitely an achievable aim with the palette, whose shades include a bronzer that helps define your contour lines, as well as a blusher and a shimmer shade to highlight and accentuate your cheekbones.

Another benefit of this bronzer is how easily it blends and the fact it's highly pigmented means it is wonderfully long-lasting. You don't have to worry about reapplying constantly as it makes it through the day and the night with you. We also love the fact that it has a refillable palette!

The next product we tried was the lip balm 'Flirt', which is part of Jane Iredale's lip drink collection which has a variety of shades to choose from. Flirt came in a lovely, sweet, pink shade that compliments the lips natural colours so much so that it could easily be worn alone in place of a lipstick. We were very impressed with their packaging overall as the balm came in a sleek tube. It's a product you could wear every day and know that not only do your lips look great, but that they are being moisturised, and protected (Flirt is SPF 15). With a refreshing scent, being vegan, and cruelty free, this product is going to make you feel good in more than one way!

Last but by no means least, we bring you the Magic Mitt.  Made with new technology, this product removes all make up quickly and with only warm water. It cleaned our skin completely, removing all excess makeup - including our mascara! Made with knitted micro fibres the Mitt doesn't affect the skin's natural acid mantle and won't harm or affect the softness of your skin. It will also help aid the skin in protecting itself from bacteria. We would reccomend using the mitt daily to remove makeup, as well as clean the face, in order to see lasting effects.

You can purchase the all-in-one bronzer here for £29.95, you can purchase the lip balm here for £14.00 and the mitt is available here for £17.00.

Contour Cosmetics - Contour Kit

Here at The Amazing Blogwe are obsessed with new makeup innovations. One of the latest trends in makeup artistry is contouring, which allows you to define certain facial features, like your cheekbones. For a long time, contouring has been a tricky mystery, but thanks to Contour Cosmetics, anyone can master the technique.

The kit includes six easy-to-blend shades designed to complement every skin tone, from fair to dark. Every set includes a portable instruction booklet to show you exactly how to apply the formulas correctly to achieve a flawless finish. Contouring allows you to highlight, illuminate and enhance your natural features, and this set is the perfect way to achieve your desired results with ease.

Along with the contour kit itself, Contour Cosmetics makes their specialty sculpting and blending brushes designed for use with the contouring makeup. The flat-topped, circular blending brush helps to give you smooth, even coverage, while the sculpting brush offers extra precision and definition to your look.

At the office, we adored the simple packaging of the kit, as well as how creamy and smooth the formulas are. It was easy to apply the makeup properly, so we finally learned how to master contouring. Each shade applied smoothly and without hassle, so we looked fabulous all day long.

Pick up your own Contour Cosmetic kit on the brand’s website for £42. The sculpting brush (£14) and blending brush (£21) are also available for purchase on their website.
