Become B. for Beautiful This Summer!

B. Fixed Eyeshadow Primer, B. Glowing Shimmer Block Blush, B. Glowing Shimmer Block Bronze, B. Glowing Shimmer Block Peach, B. Cappuccino Lipstick Review & Swatches

With the myriad of beauty products in the drugstores I seem to have overlooked B. makeup and skincare with its simple understated non-flashy packaging. B., for beautiful, features easy-to-use very familiar products to the most of us while also being Cruelty Free and Vegan. It's design and concept are said to be under the wing of beauty giant Estee Lauder. Perusing the aisles of Superdrug I picked up a few products which are perfect for the warm summer season.

When I think of summer I imagine a gorgeous glow with highlighters galore, long wearing eye makeup and creamy nude lips, and thats exactly what I have here from B.

I have 3 B. Glowing Shimmer BlocksB. Fixed Eyeshadow Primer and B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick to share with you today.

The B. Glowing Shimmer Blocks are essentially round versions of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks. Each shade has its glowy theme with 5 colours in each. These are great multitaskers. Dip the brush in the darker side to create a glowy blush and use the lighter end for highlight. With a small brush eg mac, you can pick up the individual shades to use on the eyes.  I have Blush 196, Bronze 108 and Just Peachy 161.

B. Glowing Shimmer Block Blush (£8.99) swirls up to a midtone pink with a silver frost. Somehow this reminds me of MAC Petticoat MSF. 

B. Glowing Shimmer Block Bronze (£8.99) swirls to a gorgeous gorgeous yellow toned peachy brown shade. It's a summer must have. Swirl on the cheeks for a bronze glow or highlight and separate shades on the eyes.

B. Glowing Shimmer Block Just Peachy (£8.99) surprised me. It looks pretty Blah in the pan but swirled, oh my! Its a beautiful pink shade with a golden sheen. It has a lot more pink than NARS orgasm and similar shades. It reminds me of MAC Creme de la Femme lipstick but in blush form.

B. Fixed Eyeshadow Primer (£8.99) is a silicone based eye primer that applies in a yellow nude shade and spreads to an almost transparent satin finish. It is dermatologically and ophthalmologically approved for those with sensitive skin and eyes. It has a greasy oily feel that does not appear to hold eyeshadow well in the warm sweaty summer but perhaps it might be better in the winter. Lads and ladies with oily eyelids should avoid this, but the those with drier skins might benefit from it.

B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick in Cappuccino 51 (£7.99). The first two words come to mind: Clever packaging.  The tubes are similar to Chanel lipsticks with a 'pop-in-out' feature to avoid the disaster of the lipstick opening in your bag. Cappuccino is a beautiful nude rose. It is super creamy and moisturising and it applies effortlessly on the lips. I might have to check out a few more of these lipsticks.

My two favourites are definitely B. Glowing Shimmer Block Bronze and B. Rich Intense Colour Cappuccino Lipstick. They will get a lot of use in the summer!

Thank you beautiful brown eyed Haifayh from Superdrug for giving me the opportunity to review these products.
