I am a huge huge fan of cream eyeshadows, although I am quite specific about the types I like…quite runny and shimmery, jelly like, or rich creams. Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color (using the spelling on their packaging) Tattoo Cream Eyeshadows have been out of my radar for a long time because they had a texture I don’t usually like; somewhat thin and quite solid. Then I was sent a few colours to try; quite a […]
It’s always very interesting to get a selection of products from a new brand (as in, new to me!) as there are no preconceptions about the products. Touch in Sol (‘a touch of sunshine and solutions’) is a bit of Konglish (Korean-English) is a Korean manufactured and designed brand currently sold in Korea and in the US. I was sent a selection products to try so I’ll review them over the next few weeks. First […]
The other set of Real Techniques brushes I purchased from Amazon with a slight discount was this ‘Starter Set’ which is specifically for the eyes. There is a set of 5 products in this in a nice purple and black design with a case that doubles as a stand. I am quite fussy about my eye brushes; I have a trusty few I seem to use a lot then the rest just get picked up […]
I finally took the plunge despite have FAR TOO MANY MAKE UP BRUSHES – yes – I purchased some Real Techniques make up brushes specifically for travelling back in January! Amazon have these brushes on sale with a slight discount (about 10%) and I had some credit so I used it on these! (Bear in mind Amazon prices can fluctuate from day to day!). The ‘Core Collection’ contains four brushes and a case that doubles […]
I feel like it’s only right to wish you all a very happy Valentine’s day. Remember you don’t need a boyfriend or girlfriend to celebrate it! We don’t have anything planned but we are swapping gifts. My present is mega romantic…honest. No idea what we will have for dinner, whatever is left in the freezer, most likely! Do you have any plans?
When it comes to contouring, I am pretty lazy (and incapable) of doing any chiselled looks – but I still like a bit of bronzing and highlighting to add some shape to the face. Obviously it’s not something I do every day but every now and then it’s nice to do a proper full face of make up! Whilst I have lots of powder contours, I do prefer cream textures. I have a Tom Ford […]
I am a huge fan of liquid eyeliners; my favourite type is the pen sort that looks like a felt tip pen but has some give in the nib. Additionally, I usually likes ones you can pump so you can control the amount of product coming through. I personally find that the refillable pens are inkier and deeper than the ones that are disposable. Ever since my Shu Uemura one died (the nib began to […]
