Trying Out Sculpted By Aimee Connolly - Review

 I had seen a lot of products from Sculpted By Aimee Connolly online whilst browsing Boots and so as someone who loves trying anything new, I just had to try out some of their products.

First up is the Sculpted By Aimee Connolly Beauty Base (£22.00 for 50ml), which I think is a pretty good price for the amount of product you get. This is an all in one moisturising primer that comes in a squeezy tube and has a pump applicator. This innovative three-in-one primer contains Hyaluronic Acid, SPF30 and leaves the skin with a radiant finish. Initially, it feels quite thick and heavy, but it soon massages into the skin and I often find thicker primers keep my foundation on longer. It isn't sticky and dries down instantly, feeling very nourishing and lightweight. Personally, I didn't see a strobe-like effect that they advertise, but I love the fact that it has SPF30 included in it and it did keep my makeup in place, whilst keeping my skin feeling hydrated and fresh. You can of course wear it alone, underneath foundation or even mixed in with your foundation if you are in a hurry.

I then decided to check out the Sculpted By Aimee Connolly Full Face Edit All-In-One Palette (£31.00 for 11g), which is a pink champagne coloured circular palette that contains a mirror on the inside of the lid, a Medium Matte Bronzer, Champagne Highlighter, Peach Blush, Warm Brown Matte Eyeshadow, Copper Shimmer Shadow and a Pink Cream Tint, which can be used as a cream blush or a lip tint. For me, this didn't feel the highest quality - it is made in China, and whilst I enjoyed some of the products - the blush is pretty and the bronzer is a nice shade, overall I just wasn't overly impressed with the quality of the products, especially for the price. I think the concept is great - I love things that are multi-use - but the warm brown shadow barely picked up, and I think if you are only having two eyeshadows in a palette, they really have to work and do their job. The highlighter shade is really pretty, but I did find it didn't last on my skin all that long which is unusual for me. At the time of writing this post, this palette is sold out on their website, so maybe they are discontinuing it and I need to try another palette.

Finally, I chose the Sculpted By Aimee Connolly Hydrate & Hold (£18.00 for 100ml). This setting spray comes in a rose gold bottle with a push-down applicator and is a hydration and makeup setting spray in one. This Spray contains Hyaluronic Acid to add hydration to the skin, Lemon Extract to control the skin's oils and to keep makeup on for longer, and Centella Asiatica Extract to strengthen the skin's barriers and prevent ageing. It has a lovely fine mist to it when you are applying it and a lovely, light lemon fragrance to it. It feels instantly refreshing and hydrating and you can use it before applying makeup to add moisture to the skin, as well as using it throughout the day to refresh the skin and your makeup, and of course after applying makeup as a setting spray. I really enjoy using this as I love how hydrating it is for my dry skin, and the fact that it also keeps my makeup in place, and my oiliness at bay throughout the day.
