Hi guys! Today I'm going to do a little run down of products that I'm loving and some that I've found some what disappointing.
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.
I brought this about 2 weeks ago after reading good things about it. I must say that mascara on my bottom lashes has been the bane of my life. I love the look but it just doesn't last. I find myself resembling a panda within a few hours of applying and it's put me off wearing it,(especially for work) I find a long day in warm atmosphere does not help at all! Soooo after reading about this little baby I decided to give it a go.
The first picture shows the difference in wand size compared to normal Mascara's
Now I must say that I wasn't really expecting it to work, imagine my surprise when it did!! This is a fantastic product, the little applicator wand makes it so easy to coat your lashes without getting it on the skin, it really defines and sets them all day. I really couldn't believe that it actually worked, even after a full 8 hour day at work, I returned home without even a smudge! It really is does do what it says on the tin! I would definitely buy this again and have been using it everyday since buying it. LOVE IT!! :)
Barry M gelly Polish
As you can see I brought 3, I love the colours their Vibrate and gorgeous!
Real Technique Brushes
I'm loving ( like most people) the Real Technique brushes. I recently got the expert face brush which I now use instead of my stippling brush to apply my foundation. The brush is lovely and soft, it holds just the right amount of product. I find apply my foundation is super easy and quick, it delivers a flawless and polished finish. I will definitely be buying some of the eyeshadow brushes next!
Elf Contouring blush and Bronzer duo
I purchased this a while ago and have to put it into the HATE pile. Now if you know me or read my blog regularly you know that I love tanning and always have a tan ( without I'm super pale). So I brought this too use, as my bronzer was running out. The reason why I hate it is because it is just sooooo dark, it's unwearable, and considering I have a tan it's still way too dark for me.
Blusher and Bronzer, Left with flash, right in natural daylight
I really don't know anyone it could work with. The blusher is not too bad but I can;t find a way of using the bronzer. ( as you can see from above the bronzer is just so ridiculously dark) I have tried using it to contour and alas it still fails. It's super pigmented which is normally a good thing but when it comes to bronzers I think they need to be subtle and build -able rather than tango orange in one sweep! I will not be repurchasing!
So there you go, a few products that I'm loving and hating. What about you, any products that float your boat or are there any that sink it?'
Thank you for reading
