What i am loving : may


Hey everyone its not quite june yet (1 day to go) but i thought i'd do this now rather than forgeting about and posting it in the middle of june.

So here we go !

1. Urban Decay Naked Palette - I love this palette best £27 I've ever spent in my life! The colours are very pigmented and blendable and just a big pile of lovely !! and i got with the double eyeliner instead of the eyeshaow brush -YAY!!! (maybe 'cause i got it the day it came out.)

2. Maybelline The Falsies Mascara - I spent £8 on something that should've been a lot more its buildable and not clumpy.

3. MAC a fabulous lip fantasy lip kit - it's a love or hate product and i LURRVE it! its colours that work on everyone it has 2 lip sticks and 1 lipgloss and the tartan packaging is right up my street as i am Scottish.

4.  Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - Love , love , love this foundation! its nearly a perfect match to my skin and it feels so nice putting it on.  I know a lot of people had problems with patches and muddyness but so far none for me :)

5. Ecotools 6 piece brush set - Perhaps the best , most soft drug-store brushes out there! I particularly like the blush brush and concealer brush

So thats the may faves sorted if you have made a similar post link it here i'd love to know what you have been loving

Barry M kohl pencil


Hey everyone so i'm a big fan of barry m as i think that they are cheap and cheerful but some of the products can be hit or miss *cough* Barry m nail effects *cough*.  So when i was in boots i saw the little stand/stall thing and it had the kohl eyeliner for £2.99 as i was looking for a white eyeliner i decided to  get it from there its number 30 .

Good things......
Nice colour, variety of colours, lasts all day, price

Bad things.......
Not easy to take off

Packaging........
Comes packaged in the same colour as your pencil with clear lid.

The eyeliner......
the tip of the eyeliner is very soft and its great for lining my waterline and inner corner of my eyes . Although when i lined my upper lash line it seemed to be a struggle to get off ( maybe its just me )

Would i buy again......
Yeah, as its only £2.99 :) And i'm definitely gonna go buy more colours

Hey Honey-bees!

Today i'm wearing rimmel i love lasting finish fruities in cranberry zest

Too faced natural eye palette




I got this palette a little while ago when I decided to get a nice natural eye palette as thoses are the colours i'm drawn to so i got the too faced natural eye palette .


Pros.........
Non-creasing eye shadows, variety of matte and shimmer eye shadows, pigmentation, cards that are included.
Cons............
Unnecessary packaging, brush, no- mirror.

The packaging..........................
U-D; Heaven, velvet revolver, sexpresso
It’s bulky and big and totally unnecessary. What about saving the planet too faced? Although it is undoubtedly stunning i would have been happier with a slimmer pallete like my urban decay naked palette. And the drawer which is home to that brush should have been cut from the final design as i see no need for it. The brush is basically a dual end brush (a stiff liner and sponge) i wanted to like it but i just couldn’t. It also doesn't have a mirror just a stupid big eye.


L-R; Nude beach, honey pot , cocoa puff
The palette...............
U-D; silk teddy, push up,erotica
The 9 eye shadows are AMAZING, honestly they were pigmented, buttery smooth and they will last for ages. Your 3 main colours are heaven, silk teddy and nude beach and they are a lot bigger than the other 6. My favourite eye shadows would be push up and honey pot.
At £23.00, each eye shadow only costs £2.55, its excellent value!!!!

Would i buy again........?
Yeah, if i ever need to. I’ve had it for ages and it hasn't even got a dip yet!!!

Bourjois effet 3D lipgloss



Hey Honeybees :)

Today i am going to review the Bourjois effet 3D lip gloss (£6.99).  I think by now you are all thinking what is up with this girl and bourjois!!!
 
Good things...........
Variety of colours, applicator and 3D effect

Bad things..............
Lasts at the most 30 mins until the need to reapply.

Packaging...........................
The gloss comes in a long tube with a screw top lid which you unscrew to reveal the lip brush.  The lip brush is an actual brush!!!! Not one of those spongy applicators and also the handle is long which makes it easy to hold.

The lip gloss...........


I chose Brun Rose Academic and the tube is see through so you know how much product you’re gonna get / is left. I absolutely LOVE this colour it’s a nice pink not nude not trashy just the way i like it to be it glides on smoothly and with the lip brush you are left with a nice precise finish. But to my discontent the colour didn't even last an hour :(.



Grade B-


What are your thoughts on 'Bourjois effet 3D lip Gloss' ???

L'oreal infallible eyeliner


Hey,
       Gorgeous !!!




As far as waterproof eyeliners go my favorites are the too-faced lava gloss and the urban decay 24/7 eyeliners.  But as they can be expensive i decided to visit boots for a nice cheap eyeliner that stays put and behold the l'oreal infallible eyeliner (£5.19)

Good things.........
the eyeliner itself , price, staying power, sharpener

Bad things.........
Smudger


What they say...............

Enjoy beautifully defined eyes for up to 16 hours!


The eyeliner..............

Man , does this stuff stay put!!! I put it on at 8am and at 10pm when i was cleaning my makeup off it was still there!  Thats 15  hours , not to shabby!!!  Its retractable which is good as i don't like to keep on sharpening my eyeliners I also love the built in sharpener; at first when I tried to pull the lid off the smudger, I thought I broke it but it turns out that hidden inside was a sharpener :)) speaking of the smudger i HATE it.

 
Would i buy again.........

Yes :)

Bourjois little round pot blush


Hey honey-bees :)

*******IMPORTANT UPDATE**********
don't tip it up-side down or it will break . yes i did that . Ooopsies

I had eyed this up for a while so when i finally saw it i HAD to buy it and it cost 7.49 (it might seem a lot for a blush but its also has limited edition packaging :] )

Good things - Blendable, variety of colours, natural, pigmented, long wear

Bad things - THE BRUSH !!!, price

A little history lesson........

In 1863, Bourjois was born on the great boulevards of Paris in the theatre district, at a time when France was the world's second leading economic power. The actor Joseph-Albert Ponsin was the company's first creator; he prepared makeup and perfumes for actors and actresses in the comfort of his own home. In 1868, Ponsin entrusted his entire activity to Alexandre-Napoléon Bourjois. The company blossomed in the hands of Monsieur Bourjois, who made it internationally known.


Packaging ..................

One word - Gorgeous !!!!


The Blush..............
 
It smells very floral so if your not one for scented products don't use this blush.
The shade I got is number 74 and it’s called Rose Ambré.  On my medium/dark skin it gives a lovely pinky glow.  One thing though it can cake up quite easily so one tap on my blush brush for each check and i'm good to go,  which brings me to my next point the brush included is AWFUL the concept of a curved blush brush is great but i think it picks up way to much product and it the curvy-ness doesn't help either unfortunately.

Price.....
 
I do think it's a little on the pricey side of the drugstore blushes but since it is baked it will last for ages.

Grade .............



A+

Do you have a little round pot blush ?
 Do you lurrve it or loathe it?
Are there any more colours that i need to have?



Swatched!!!!!
