Disappointing products #1

Wednesday, 28 January 2015

As a beauty blogger I tend to try quite a lot of products, every now and then I try a product that just doesn't live up to the hype surrounding them. The Garnier micellar water is a prime example of this. When this first came out there was HUGE hype around it saying it was the closest thing to bioderma you could get. I have super sensitive skin and literally anything will make it rear up and go totally mental. I thought because this is marketed towards the sensitive skin market it would be a safe bet for me. Turned out I was wrong, it broke my skin out which made me really sad because I really wanted to like but I just couldn't. 

Another Disappointing product for me was the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on shadow pencil. I've never tried an urban decay product that I haven't liked on some level. Whenever I try and use this I find it very hard to get any colour pay off from at all. They're not very smooth at all, and are very hard to work with. 

This Wet N Wild fastdrying nail polish in the shade Grays Anatomy . In the bottle this shade looks like a gorgeous oil spill/petrol colour. I found that it didn't dry fast at all and it chipped like no other nail polish I've tried. I would have it on and within an hour it would be significantly chipped. 

Have you tried any of these?

Review | Seventeen Makeup Brushes

Saturday, 17 January 2015

For christmas I received this brush set from 17 from my friend Ava. I have to say the quality of the brushes really did surprise me. They're quite sturdy to hold and feel like they're very high quality. My favourite brush out of the set is probably the brush labelled 'Cheeks'. Its really dense and is great for contour. It gives you a really nice chiselled look without being to harsh as it sort of blends as you apply product. I would also be really nice to apply cream blush too. The eye brushes are great also, they all apply colour really nicely and blend really well. I've used they so many times and I've had no fall out from them at all. 

I'm pretty sure these were a set made just for christmas, so if you see them in the boots sale I would definitely recommend picking them up! 

Have you tried these? What do you think?  

Review | Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

Saturday, 10 January 2015

Recently I reviewed the Urban Decay On The Run Palette and found I really loved the 'Perversion' mascara it came with. On first impressions the packaging is really nice and sleek. When you take out the brush from the tube you'll see its quite a big plastic wand. I really didn't think I would like this mascara from just looking at it because I thought it would give me quite thick clumpy lashes which isn't something I like. I prefer my lashes to be nice and long but very separated. 

When I first used this I was pleasantly surprised. It makes my lashes very long and thick but also very separated. Naturally I have quite long lashes but this brings them to a whole other level. My mam liked the look of it on me so much she went and bought it for herself. However, she did love the look it gave her lashes but it did run a little on her. So that might be something to bear in mind if you're prone to that.  

It's definitely my new favourite mascara and is a staple in my makeup routine. Once my small size runs out I'll definitely be buying the full size. 

Have you tried it? Did you like it?
