I rarely do makeup reviews, probably because I don’t think I’m particularly good at applying my makeup, and I always go for the cheapest makeup, even though I know its not the best (buying super expensive makeup and then finding it doesn’t suit you makes me not a happy bunny). Despite this, I have a few expensive makeup brands which I love, mainly being Mac and Benefit. Here I’m using the Benefit World Famous Neutrals palette on my eyes, its my fourth eyeshadow palette that I’ve had over the past five years and its just as pleasing as the previous ones! I’m also using the R.S.V.P Creaseless Cream Shadow underneath as a base which comes in a palette that Benefit no longer stock unfortunately. I still have lots left though so its ok! The Neutrals palette also comes with Creaseless Cream Shadows but they’re more of an earthy colour and right now I’m really enjoying the pinks!
I like to have super big full of volume lashes with probably way too much mascara on (I do enjoy the almost-clumpy mascara look) and a while ago Yves Rocher sent me this Ultra Volume mascara to review. I’ve been using it for a while and I am loving the results, its a very tiny bottle with a huge brush which is something I always look for in my mascaras (if you’re permitted to open them before trying them aha!) The results are very dark and dramatic and I think my eyelashes look bigger than normal which is always good! It kind of reminds me of all the volumizing Rimmel Mascaras apart from its more compact and fancy looking and smells nicer!
Finally I’m also wearing the Sleek Matte Me in Birthday Suit I’ve been wearing this literally almost everyday for the past two months! I’ve never really been into nude colours, or lipgloss for that matter, I hate it when my hair gets stuck in it, which it always does. But this is different! It goes on like a lipgloss and then drys matte, and its super opaque and pigmented so the colour is really good! Its just the right amount of nude for my skin tone that it looks half natural and half super striking which is something one really wants to achieve, it reminds me of a 90’s lip colour. Also its only £4.99, excuse me while I pop down to boots and buy all the other colours in the range!
