reacts weird with glitter
I found this top coat very strange. On top of a plain colour it's SUPER shiny.. but when I applied it as a top coat over glitter, it actually turned the whole nail matt! It has done this every time I've tried using it with glitter. I don't understand how or why but I think it's a reaction that happens when the layer of polish applied is too think (or something like that) that's the only explination I could come up with. In a nutshell, I wouldn't buy this polish again.
This will always be my favorite Kohl liner!
This is THE blackest Kohl eyeliner of all. I have tried SO many different ones and they have all disappointed compared to this one. It's perfect for using on the waterline, or around the eye for a more dramatic look. It's also perfect for smudging into a smokey effect on the top or bottom lids, I wear this instead of eyeshadow a lot of the time. You those night where you come home from a night out and just fall right into bed without taking off your makeup? Well this is one of the ONLY makeup products I know that seriously looks even better after sleeping in it! Seriously rockin! To top it off, it's great value and can be picked up in almost every chemist/drug store. 5 stars from me!
Currently wearing everyday!
I have always thought celebrity perfumes were a bit dodgy, and although I LOVE Beyonce, I would never have bought this perfume for myself. My fiance brought it back as a gift from an American tour he was on as it was not yet available in Ireland and he knew how much I loved Beyonce :D Although apprehensive at first, I have to say, I love it! Right now I am actually wearing it every day, no exaggeration. I have never bought the same perfume twice, but with this one, I think I might have to! I have also tried the more recent fragrance 'Pulse' and it really didn't do it for me, it was far too sweet and the kind of perfume that would give you a headache after a while. But Heat has just the right amount of sweetness and lasts a good long time before fading. The one criticism I would have is although the bottle is very beautiful, it's slightly awkward to spray and also awkward to fit into your wash bag if you are going traveling but they are minor issues, I would give this perfume 4 stars all in all :)
I really like this lip cream. I often keep it in my bag for days when I haven't committed to wearing a lipstick but still want a little flash of colour. The formula is so creamy, it's almost like a lip balm, but the colour is rich and the matt finish is great. It doesn't last for ages, but it also doesn't leave any residue around the edges of your lips which I really like because regular lipsticks have a tendency to do that on my lips. It can really end up looking awful if you forget to top up your colour and you are left with those harsh lines on the outside of your lips. I've never had that problem with this lip cream though, the colour just fades away evenly and goes on evenly again once you reapply it. Oh, and it has a nice smell too, but not so overpowering that it will effect the taste of your food (I also HATE that) A good lip product all in all!
Great duo eyeliner
I bought this double sided eyeliner simply because it was on sale in my local chemist and I was in desperate need of a new eyeliner pencil. I had no expectations when buying and I have to say I was pleasantly suprised. I have always used the Rimmel Black Kohl liner because, in my opinion, it's the darkest and most black kohl eyeliner there is. Other pencil liners have always disappointed me in comparison to the Rimmel one. With this one however, the colour of the black was strong yet it was still easy to blend for a more smokey look and the double sided aspect opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me. I started experimenting with white liner for the first time and I've definitely been converted! All in all, this was a great suprise of a purchase and I would definitely buy it again. The only thing I could say against it is that although the black was good and dark, it still wasn't as deep as the Rimmel one. Definitely try this product out though, I would be suprised if you end up disappointed
Simply The Best!
This is most definitely the best eyeliner I have ever used! I love very dramatic eyes and I often wear Egyptian inspired eyeliner. This eyeliner stays ALL day, it dries way quicker than any other liquid eyeliners I have used in the past. The slimline applicator brush you get free with it is perfect for it's application and allows you to play it safe with a thiner eyeliner design or go dramatic with big thick block colour. This is the one makeup item that I cannot survive without, as soon as it runs out I am straight in the shop buying another one. Well done Maybelline GFx
I have very pale Irish skin and often find it difficult to source foundations that suit my skin tone. With Maybelline's Superstay 24HR Makeup (in 'Light Beige' which doesn't seem to be listed here) I was pleasantly suprised by how well it blends with the natural tone of your skin and really does have great staying power. I often top up this foundation with some white pressed powder throughout the day just give myself a fresh glow, but all in all I really can't fault this foundation. The colour tone blends so well, it stays all day, never irritates my skin, never triggers a break out, washing it off is a breeze and it's great value! Five stars from me! GF x
