Things have been very busy over the past couple of weeks so I haven’t got nearly as many beauty reviews written as I would have liked. But I’ve been trying out lots of new products and I’m excited to share all my thoughts on them with you.
There will be full reviews up on all these products shortly but here’s a sneak peak into what I’ve been putting to the test:
A few weeks ago I bought the UD Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette and it is amazing. There are a great mix of colours, lots of soft nude and brown shades, combined with a few very strong shades like blue, burgundy and black.
I’m a massive fan of UD palettes in general so I was really excited to get this, and so far it’s is looking like a good all-rounder. Keep an eye out for some of my makeup looks using this palette which will be live next week.
Okay so I’ve read loads of reviews of Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream and I was expecting wondrous, ‘magic’ results. Like, it’s nice and all but it hasn’t worked any magic on me so far. And the biggest question I’m asking is, is it worth the €90 price tag? I’m not convinced so far. I’m worried this is all hype and no substance…
But, I’ve only tried it a couple of times so in the interest of fairness, I’m going to give this another week or two before I share a full, detailed review.
Benefit POREfessional Matte Rescue Gel
I really love Benefit primers and their ‘That Gal’ offering has been a staple in my makeup bag for years. I also like their POREfessional offering, so when they released this mattifying gel in January, I instantly added it to my wish list.
I have dry skin, well maybe normal to dry, so I don’t suffer with excess oil on my face. I do however like most people, experience some shine in the afternoons around my T-Zone area. I’ve read that this does wonders for keeping shine at bay so I’ll keep you posted on my thoughts once I’ve given it a proper go.
For those of you who read a lot of my beauty posts, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of MAC eyeliners. I use their Penultimate Eyeliner Pen as my every day eyeliner, and their Fluidline pot for a more dramatic look.
Because I’ve been using these for so long, I got a bit lazy about trying other market alternatives so when I was in Urban Decay a few weeks ago, I decided to try their version of a felt tip eyeliner pen, Ink for Eyes.
It’s super easy to use, I’m really liking it so far. The only downside I’ve noticed is that it does start to dry quite quickly on application so I’ll be watching it over the next while and will report back soon.
I will get full blog posts on each of these products up over the next week or two, I promise!
In the meantime, have you tried any of these? If so I’d love to hear your thoughts.
