Abbie N.'s Beauty Product Reviews
choose to indulge
Unfortunately I lost my original tube on a night out not long after I purchased it, which was a shame as its expensive for something that is basially Vaseline. It did a great job at protecting my lips from the wintery weather, but its definitely a indulgence product, I brought it only on the basis that I wanted to use this brand not because its better than any other.
super light for the summer
I started using this in the start of spring as its super light and doesn't make my skin oily like other 'heavy' moisterizers. It smells fresh and has spf 15 which is a bonus for day to day running about. Only thing is that becuase its so light I can't really use it in the winter as my cheeks are dry and this just doesn't cut it for me.
I used this when I first started using mascara and it was really good, extended my lashes and gave it volume, I thought it was the best thing I had. Now a few years have gone down the line this mascara is only average, and for the price its not that amazing. The product has a curved brush which is helpful, and thats why when I was a beginner I guess it was useful.
I got this becuase I wanted to try out whether their skincare line is good as their make up, and theres certainly a gap. There wasn't any oil control, and it was basically the same as any other moisterizer but in a MAC bottle and £££ price tag. My main dissapointment is that it didn't reduce my oily skin but it felt sticky and oily most of the time.
Use it before it dries out.
This was my eye liner that I used religiously until I took a break from it to go back to the pencil, when I finally came back around to it, the surface was hard and dried up. It hadn't dried up previously because I was using it everyday and so when its not managed it goes dry. I'm not that gutted about it, but when its ok its really easy to use and stays on till the early morning. Shame mine has to go :(
quick on-the-go fix
I use this everyday without fail. I just apply this without any foundation and I'm ready to go. I have clear skin, but on the days when I have a breakout this product gives it coverage. The packaging is fun and quirky and I take it out to wherever I go. What will I do without it?
I'm really suprised by this product, I recieved it without expecting much and the results was really good. I've only got tiny pores around my nose area so I thought the filler wouldn't be that effective, but it works a treat and it smells lush. I usually pat it (never rub it) onto the pore area, and then over my blusher as it 'fixes' my make up in place so I don't need to re apply as often on a night out. I've tried using it as a primer and it dried my skin out as its quite 'powdery', but its good on oily parts.
