My 2016 ‘buying new make-up’ habits seem to be continuing but I decided instead of buying cheap products and running out of them quickly I’d actually splash out a little on my favourites. Last week I did a cheeky order at Look Fantastic because they sent me a 20% off code in my emails – after being super ill for a few days I knew some new make-up would sort me out.
Even though I didn’t buy many items I thought I’d show you what I bought anyway in a mini haul, especially as they’re all items I’ve wanted for a while.
I bought two things: the Benefit They’re Real trio set (eyeliner, mascara and eye make-up remover) and a NARS eyeshadow duo. I know what you’re thinking – YUM.
BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL PUSH UP EYELINER
In the past I’ve only ever used kohl pencils and things like that for eyeliner and I really struggle with it smudging down my face after an hour of using it, especially as I have such oily skin. I have to say I LOVE THIS EYELINER. It look me a use or 2 (or 4) to get used to but now I’ve got the hang of it it makes my eyeliner look the bomb. It’s a little bit like using a pen to do your eyeliner but the only issue is if I go majorly wrong it goes a little disastrous. Practice makes perfect!
BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL MASCARA
I’m not one for always wearing mascara but recently I wanted to wear some and didn’t have any… So I had to get some, right? I haven’t got much to say about it other than it makes my lashes look fab, but I’m not sure if I’d buy it individually for the price – however, I’m really not an eyelashes expert. It makes a pretty photo?
BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL EYE MAKE-UP REMOVER CREAM
One of the reasons I chose this trio pack was to try this remover cream. I have such issues with taking my eye make-up off and I can’t stand it when black bits of mascara don’t come off – #perfectionist. When I’ve tried this it’s definitely worked but I do worry about how much of the cream I’m using and I’m not sure how long it’d last. I think I’ll use this only when I’m taking off the mascara and only use my micellar water for the eyeliner.
NARS EYESHADOW DUO – TOKYO
Say hello to my first ever NARS product. EEEEEEK. I’m not sure how I’ve lasted this long but I’ve wanted a blusher or an eyeshadow from there for ages – as soon as I saw this purple & white eyeshadow duo I was like ‘I’m soooo having that’. The shades are perfect for me because the purple really goes with my green eyes, and the pigmentation is just amazing. I’m in love.
SHOP MY BUYS
If I had to encourage you to buy any of this stuff it would be the Benefit They’re Real eyeliner and the NARS eyeshadows – they’re the nicest products I’ve used in a while and it’s making me realise that spending that little bit more on make-up may be worth it. Plus, look how instagrammable it all is?!
Have you tried any of these products? If so, what did you think?!
Until next time,
