Revisiting oldies

Hi all, hope you’re enjoying this laavely weather we’ve been having (Those in the UK, you get it). Today when i was getting ready i decided to have a go with products that seemed to find themselves being set aside. I don’t think i have a reason really for why these were put aside, probably just i started using newer products. (should also say now that the eyeshadows weren’t products that were rediscovered, they’re newbies!)

So, which products did I use && what do i think of them now?

So i’ll start with what i started with;

Miss Sporty InstaGlow primer

This primer is a pink-toned shimmery liquid. It doesn’t have a powdery/matte finish, more of a slightly tacky product. I applied this onto clean skin with no moisturiser as i remember it could go bally combined. Applied nicely today though.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless 105 

This isn’t a completely matte foundation and is a little dark, but blends in easily. It has reasonably good staying power and don’t feel it overly needs set. I quite like this and will deffo use it up, but unlikely buy another.

L’oreal Infalliable Sculpt contouring palette

I actually have been really enjoying this one lately. It’s nice and creamy, but has a cream-to-powder finish. V easy to blend and the paler shade is matte, so nice for a natural finish. The paler shade can also be used to lighten the contour. Nice cool tone as well, so perfect for contouring.

Natural Collection Dusky Pink Blusher

This is a product i will always go back to. It has such a lovely soft blushed shade which is easy to wear… on pale skin anyway… It blends in perfectly and doesn’t kick up too much dust.

Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter

I love this one. It is the perfect amount of glow and shimmer and everything you would want for an everyday highlighter. So easy to apply and easy to build up. Laaaaaavely. Super cheap as well, you should deffo try this one out.

Freedom brow pomade

This one can be q difficult to use, you only need a small amount on your brush. I think this is easiest to use with a small-bristled brush and wipe off excess product in the lid. It has good staying power and gets a lot easier to use the more you practice.

Soap & Glory It’s about prime

I actually really like this one. Makes a nice base and makes everything look more glowey. Laaaaaavely. I won’t be repurchasing this one as i prefer cream eyeshadows to liquid ones. Easy to apply and is very good though, definitely one to pick up if you prefer liquid primers.

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette 

I used the shimmery shade, Skimp and the 2 matte ones were cover and primal. These were used in the crease area. These blend out soooo nicely and are perfect for brown eyes. You can’t really see ‘Skimp’, but it does make a lovely base for your eyes.

Makeup Obsession Eyeshadow E124, Copper && E141, Alba

I actually recently got these 2 eyeshadows simply because of how warm toned they are. These blend so nicely and warm a look up really nicely. Also, for only £2 a piece you should deffo give them a go!

L’oreal Superliner; Black

I stopped using this everyday simply because of how non-waterproof it is. If you have watery eyes i really don’t recommend it. It has good pigmentation and is ok for standard liner, but don’t recommend it for winging it out. Won’t be repurchasing this one once it runs out.

Collection Supersize mascara

I love this mascara. Gives my eyelashes gorgeous volume and length and layers really nicely. I highly recommend this one. Will deffo be repurchasing soon! (the bottom mascara with pink lid)

Soap & Glory; Naked Beige 

This is the perfect cool toned brown lipstick. Feels really comfortable on the lips, a nice satin finish. Pretty sure the brand discontinued this one though. I like to use this one for everyday kinda looks. Swatch is below the black liner.

 

AAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the finished look. The camera kinda washed me out, so you can’t properly see what the eyeshadow looks like, my bad.

So hope you enjoyed reading this. Will hopefully be back posting a bit more soon. Hope you have a lovely weekend!
