Look : Power Purple

Purple is a great colour for both night and day so I decided to go with this look tonight as I’m hoping a meal out with Mr.Retro (& Master Retro) is on the cards. If you want to wear this in the day just leave the Charcoal colour until your ready to go out.

Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner Review

Before trying this product I had never tried a gel eyeliner before, I had always preferred my trusty liquid eyeliner as I found it easier to use to to get that cats eye flick at the end. I received this gel eyeliner in my May GlossyBox and since it was there I thought it was about time I gave this product a try.

Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner – These intense colour pigment pots will give up to 12 hours lasting wear, for a glossy finish to your essential eyeliner look.

The gel eyeliner comes in a little glass pot and Im shocked with how easy it is to use, it also comes with its own little brush and is perfect for travel. The formula is lightweight with a perfect texture, a nice line in one go without going over the same spot too many times and very easy to apply. I’m not converted as I still love my liquid eyeliner but I will use this whenever I want a more subtle look for a change. I think its worth buying for easy of use and maybe before trying a liquid applicator, a good product for its price.

The Good Points

  • Lightweight Formula
  • Nice consistent Texture
  • Perfect coverage in one swipe
  • Easy to Apply

 

The Bad Points

  • Not Smudgeproof
  • Not Waterproof

Look : Toasted Marshmallow (Pinks & Browns)

If the name makes you hungry then I apologise in advance, the name is a mixture of the eye shadow names and the colours. I also used BB Cream for the first time in this look so I will do a full review about that later on. The look is mostly pinks with some browns, subtle enough for say and just use a brighter pink and smoke the browns out for a night time look.

May GlossyBox Review- Birthday Box

My may GlossyBox has arrived and I am excited to see not only what is in my box but also if I am one of the Golden Ticket holders and due to get one of the fabulous GlossyBox Prizes. I’m looking forward to finding out what these products are and if there are any hidden extras as I know Glossy Box can be very kind to us. My initial reaction is it smells gorgeous already the smell of the perfume has me intoxicated and I know Im going to like them but what else is inside?

May GlossyBox – The Birthday Box

Noble Isle Summer Rising Bath & Shower Gel Full Size £20 250ml: First things first the smell of this is gorgeous, close your eyes and the scents smell exactly like the name….Summer. The scents included are elderflower, gooseberry, orange blossom, moss and cut grass. Said to leave your skin feeling soft, clean and beautifully scented. Walking around smelling like this all day would definitely put you in a good mood.

Lolita Lempicka – Eau de Parfum / L’Eau en Blanc Full Size £65 100ml (also available in 50ml): Now until now I haven’t been very much bothered about the perfumes I’ve been sent, but both these two perfumes are game changers. Ive heard of this brand before and was looking forward to trying them one day but now I have samples of these two my next choice will be which one to buy. Eau de Parfum is described as a sensual, oriental and floral with scents such as anise, ivy, violet, tonka bean, amerena, vanilla and praline. If you haven’t smelt this yet then you have to try it… definitely one to intoxicate your partner. L’Eau en Blanc is a limited edition scent which really is indescribable with scents such as white violets, raspberry and musk. It is exclusive to House of Fraser until 31st May and nationwide from the 1st June. These fragrances really are worth it.

HD Brow – Brow Beater Full Size £14.95: A non-sticky formula to keep your eyebrows slick and in place without freezing your eyebrows in place. I usually use pencil to colour my brows and nothing to keep them in place all day but I’ll definitely try this as the formula may be enough to keep my eyebrows looking neat without the need for make-up.

Weleda – Iris Hydrating Day Cream Full Size £10.95 30ml –  At first I had no idea what this was as the whole packaging is in German but thanks to google translate I now know this is a hydrating day cream. I will give it a go as my skin has quite a few dry patches, for the last week I have been using Steamcream which is a god send in every way to my skin but its always worth giving another product a try to give your skin a break from the normal routine.

Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner Full Size £4.99 6ml – Im not usually one for gel eyeliners no matter how much everyone has come to love them, for me its pencil or liquid depending on the effect I’m after. I will try it as if its in the box then GlossyBox has had a good reason in putting it there.Ive got brown so perfect colour for the natural everyday look.

Added Bonuses:

  • GlossyBox Birthday balloon
  • GlossyBox Hand Mirror.
