First of all, happy bloody easter you lovely lot! I hope that all the diets have stopped and you are bathing in chocolate….. I literally had to punch my way into this egg to open it up (not even joking!)
Anyway thought I would put together a little post about my favourite make up products over the past month. Let me know what you think 🙂
Look at my lovely package (get your mind out of the gutters!), as you may or may not have heard E.L.F is closing down here in the UK and therefore I took advantage of their discount on the website. I am known for buying a lot of products from E.L.F and was really gutted when I found out it was going. You may also see that I have a non E.L.F product face there, the beauty that is the eos lipbalm in honeydew melon…… oh god its just beautiful. I first bought it and when it arrived in the post, the lip balm itself was in half 😦 so now I have 2 haha 1 in whole and 1 in half haha, but yay!!
I adore the E.L.F cream blush, the top I have been using for the past few months and it lasts for a long time, it’s really easy to apply so when I saw the others were available on sale, I thought hell to the yes!
The colours in the photo above are from top to bottom: tease, flirt and vixen. Oh, just realised my blushers are telling a story hahaha – flirt and tease with the man and then become a strong woman…. well kinda haha you vixen you!
I am not really one for buying Jumbo Lip Glosses in crayon forms (check out my other blog posts about different lip products here >> click me yes me <<) But I did think sod it, I will go ahead and buy four. The colour you see above is Tiki Torches (22145). The crayon itself as you can see has an orange tint to it, when I first opened up the packaging I did think….. oh wow never had orange before but its quite a natural shade, with a slight tint of colour. Bit unsure of the smell, and I will say this for all of them – they do actually smell of crayons, which is off putting. I feel like a 5 year old, pretending they are putting on lipstick with crayola crayons haha!
This shade is Coco Loco 22143, again I was shcoked, I did think oh bugger its brown!! Who wears brown lipgloss haha. It’s a rather strange colour when its on, the shades go from pink, to orange to some shades of brown. I think its a grower, but I have used it a number of times and it does moisturise my lips.
I feel like I have gone back to the 90’s. Its a really glitzy shade that I am really not used to wearing, its quite bright in pink, full of shimmer and glitter with a tint of purple. Now I love a purple lip shade, but maybe because I am used to matte shades this is too (weirdly) it’s too in ya face. This shade is called Flirty and Girly (22147)
This is my favourite one of the four in which I have bought, it’s not so in your face and its subtle enough to say that you are wearing a shade. The colour of this lipgloss is Pink Umbrellas (221444) – ps such a cute name!! I will be definitely popping this in my handbag and using this most – shame that is smells still of a crayon.
I bought this product the other week, the MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit, as I was so bored of using pencils I thought I would try something else. First of all, I apologise for the untidy eyebrow haha! But you can see the effects of product, its not too out there for someone to say “jesus tone down those eyebrows girl!” Plus you have 3 shades to match your complexion as well.
I have watched so many videos of people contouring, and I really want to do it to my face and I found this little gem in Superdrug. It’s by Seventeen and its great. The darker shade really has a great pigmentation and unfortunately the lighter shade is not as strong but there are ways around it. I also LOVE the fact that there is a how to guide, although it may not be for my face shape, I can easily adapt.
Haha well you can clearly see how much I have used this product. It’s brilliant, for not only what it does, but also how easy you can keep it in your handbag. I love the idea of all 4 colours being there. I haven’t as you can see used the darker yellow version, as to be honest I cant remember what it is for – so if anyone knows let me know!!!
On the other hand, I did treat myself to my ultimate favourite go to make up product. I suffer with a lot of redness on my neck (weird I know) and also I absolutely need the under eye circles – damn you insomnia and getting up early!!! These last for a long time and they are brilliant for coverage. I would seriously say to those who suffer from the same, invest!!
In my last blog post, just like the eyebrow coverage I bought this product and I will seriously never buy make up wipes again (click here for that post >> pick me pick me <<) It’s one of the best things I have ever bought, its so clean, fresh, soothing and makes my face feel absolutely refreshed. I have already bought another one! Haha!
Foundations in my life have changed, I have gone from mousse to liquid and now I am definitely back to mousse. It’s just the best in coverage, lasts for so long and it doesn’t dry out your skin either!
I er…… used to hate this product haha, but I have been trying to do the whole contouring thing as I have already said, and I have found this product really helpful. It does come with a little brush and sponge but they looked a bit horrible – and………… I looked awful in the pic. Unfortunately one of the reasons I hated this was because I didnt realise I bought the “darker” shade lol I would/should have the lighter shade.
My newest product, I only found it because I was looking for my 3rd product in 3 for 2 in Boots hahaha, and the only reason I bought it was because “ooh that looks small and different!” It’s a great little compact, really highlights and also conceals all the areas you wish to not show. It’s a great price and lasts for a long time, I would recommend trying to find it lol!
If I could wear only one shade on my nails forever, it would seriously be this shade – Barry M – Berry Lilac 308. It goes with everything, it hardly ever chips, lasts for so long, its glossy and – yeah just the best. I tell you who else is also a lover of this shade and you should check out her blog, my lovely friend Jen – go on check her out – and follow her on Twitter too!!
