After nearly a year of beauty blogging I’ve realised that I have never actually mentioned which makeup items I use on a daily basis. I do change my mind quite a lot and get bored with products more often than I should, but these are the items I’m currently using and the total cost. View Full Post
So I’m starting a new series of posts on my blog called “Help I gave into the hype”. I don’t know about you but if I see a product mentioned a lot on other blogs I can’t stop myself buying it. Sometimes this works out really well and the product is totally worth the hype. Other times… well let’s just say I have a growing collection of disappointments. The first product I’ve decided to write about is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara. I remember this being mentioned as a cheaper alternative to the Benefit Roller Lash and I haven’t seen one bad review. View Full Post
I have always been a loyal pencil eyeliner user. When everyone was telling me to try liquid or gel, saying how much better they were, I would stubbornly defend my trusty pencil. So how was I converted? It wasn’t until a few weeks ago, when I was at Glastonbury Festival. My pencil got too warm in my tent, the top snapped off and it wouldn’t sharpen… Enter my sister’s gel eyeliner… She had been going on about it since she got it and I didn’t really listen to her, but my pencil was broken so I had no choice but to try it. I was so surprised at how easy it was to use. For some reason I thought that gel was the most difficult form of eyeliner to apply. Not true. It was actually much easier to get a thin line and my usual “cat-eye flick” looked more refined. Needless to say, as soon as I got home I took a trip to Superdrug and got my hands on my own gel eyeliner. View Full Post
In my last post I spoke about how I was on the hunt for my perfect nude lip colour. The next lipstick I decided to try was another by Maybelline, a Color Sensational lipstick in the shade ‘Tantalising Taupe’.
The packaging looks classy and the shade is printed on the bottom, which makes it easy to see which colour you are picking up. The lid also feels quite secure so you wouldn’t have to worry about it falling off in your bag. View Full Post
I have been searching for my perfect nude lip colour for a while and the latest purchase on my hunt was the Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencil in the shade ‘Nude Perfection’. A lot of bloggers have been talking about these a a dupe for the NARS Velvet Lip Pencils, I don’t own these so I can’t compare, but if they are similar I don’t think I would spend my money.
The packaging is nice and simple, a black pencil with white writing and the shade at the bottom makes it easy to see which colour you are picking up. View Full Post
