Review - benefit eye bright

benefit eye bright - £15 

I have been using this eyelliner for about a year now, it has the perfect amount of white and pink in it to brighten the eyes without being to obvious. As you can see from the first picture i have used quite a lot, i use this in the inner corner, bottom water line, brow bone, down my nose,cupids bow and on my eye lid as a shadow base. From what iv just said i you can see that this is a versatile multi use product.

Eye bright is easy to apply ,well pigmented and blends very easily .It lasts all day apart from when applied in the bottom water line then it only lasts a couple of hours like most products applied to the bottom water line.I really like this product and use it everyday as part of my 'everyday makeup routine' and don't think anything can replace it.

Review - MUA eyeshadows

shade 20 - superdrug

shade 11 - superdrug

shade 24 - superdrug

shade 22 - superdrug

shade 20, shade 11, shade 24 and shade 22
MUA eye shadows are sold at superdrug and on the MUA website for £1

MUA eyeshadows  are super high pigmented and easy to blend and at just £1 they are amazing value for money! In total i have four MUA eyeshaows, three pearl (the last three swatches) and one matte (the first swatch). The eyeshadows don't fade and  are quite long lasting alone but with a eyeshadow primer wont come off till the end of the day, but its not necessary to use one.When applying them the pearl eyeshadows have some fall out like any shimmer/glitter eyeshadows nothing to really worry about.

  • The first eyeshadow is shade 20 which is a dark matte black.
  • The second eyeshaow is shade 11 which is a bronzed copper brown with shimmers of gold when swatched,but in the pot it doesn't look anything alike it does swatched.
  • The third eyeshadow is shade 24 a which is  brown/purple with gold/pink shimmers.
  • The forth eyeshadow is shade 22 which is a pale pink with a touch of gold with blue shimmers.

MUA have a total of five matte eyeshadows and 26 pearl eyeshadows (it says theirs 34 pearl eyeshadow but superdrug only sell 23 and MUA sell 26) so there will definitely be a shade you like! I will definitely be buying some more to add to my collection, The MUA eyeshadows are perfect for you if you're just starting out with makeup because you can experiment with different colours for just £1 an eyeshaow, their also great if you want to start to build up your makeup collection, because at just £1 you cant go wrong!

I thought i could do a series of review posts on different brands thats i own, for example if i picked MUA i would review their blushers, lipsticks, lipglosses, eyeliners etc.. and then do an overall post about that brand. iI you like the sound of that let me know in the comments or on twitter , what brand you would like me to choose or if you want me to carry on with MUA, i look forward to hearing from you!

Review - 17 supreme shine lipstick, All About The Sass

17 supreme shine lipstick, All About The Sass - £4.99

At the moment I've really been loving the bold lips and dramatic eyelashes look, so i thought i would do a review on one of my "bold lips" lipsticks.

The 17 lipstick is in the colour All About The Sass and is one of their supreme shine lipsticks, it is a very bright dark pink colour. It apply's really nice to the lips and is very moisturising for a lipstick, it lasts really well about four-five hours before you need to reapply, i also find that if you try not to drink or eat for about 20 minutes after applying it then it stays on longer because it has "set/dried" on the lips.The finish of the lipstick is glossy the name is a bit of a give away;  it is a supreme shine lipstick so it does gives your lips a nice shine to them, so if you like matte lips this this wouldn't be for you! It is such a reasonably priced lipstick that is of great quality and is definitely a staple in my makeup bag.

Review - Maybelline colossal volum' express smokey eyes mascara

Maybelline colossal volum' express smokey eyes mascara - £7.99

I have mixed reviews review on this mascara, if i was to write this review a month ago i would be telling you how much i hate it and how you shouldn't go out and buy it, but now my view has changed.

The first time i wore this mascara it started to crumble of my lashes throughout the day (this has never happened before to me) The bits of crumbled of mascara then either went in my eyes and made my eyes hurt or went under my eyes and made a mess. Because of this i was not to impressed, and just thought it didn't even make my eye lashes look fantastic or anything so its not even worth the crumbling because it doesnt really do anything specail. I gave it one more go and  it did the same thing, so i dismissed it off as being a rubbish mascara and put it to the back of my makeup collection, feeling disappointed.

Then about a month later i thought i would give it another go before i threw it out and i loved it! Yes my opinion changed a lot it didn't crumble off my eyelashes, didn't smudge and stayed on my eye lashes all day. I don't know why it was so terrible the first time and not now maybe its dried out and that's helped which sounds weird but who knows.I hope that main was faulty or something and that's why it was so awful the first time i used it, because now it works really well and the brush is great at separating the lashes and making them look longer, fuller and more even.

Would i repurchase/ recommend? - | YES | NO | MAYBE (in hope that main was faulty)

 Sorry it was more of a ramblings review then information.Hope it still helps in someway.
