Maybelline Master Ink & Brow Satin |Review

Maybelline Master Ink & Brow Satin | Review

IMG_2681

I purchased these two products in Superdrug two weeks ago. In those two weeks since purchasing I have tried and tested these two products and they have found a place into my makeup bag.
I wanted to try out a new eyebrow product and came across the Maybelline eyebrow product range.
I then also decided to try out their liquid eyeliner and picked up the Master Ink.

Maybelline Brow Satin

‘Get natural looking full brows, with our new brow duo.’

I decided to get the Brow Satin because it has a pencil at one end and a powder at the other.
So you get two products in one that work well together.

First I use the pencil side to lightly fill in any sparse areas of my brow. Then I go in with the powder to help blend the products together to give a more natural look to my eyebrows. I love the colour range of this product as the shade I chose ‘Medium Brown’ blends in with my natural brow colour perfectly. It also lasts throughout the day and does not fade.

The pencil is not hard or harsh on the brows and you can easily blend or wipe it away without any fuss. The powder applicator is the right size for filling in the brows. You can slowly build up however much product you want, so you can have a natural brow look or a more defined look.

Do I think this is worth the money? Definitely.

It might not be everyone’s go to Eyebrow product, But I like it a lot and think its worth the money.

This product is £5.99 and you can find it here.

Maybelline Master Ink

‘Introducing Master Ink Liquid Eyeliner. Our first liquid liner with a Smart Tip brush for easy to draw, no mess lines with black carbon pigments for deep black intensity. Smudgeproof, Longwear formula. Available in 3 shades; Matte, Satin & Glitter’

This eyeliner has become my favourite daily eyeliner.

I am a big fan of this eyeliner tip. So when I opened it in the shop I knew I wanted to buy it.
This long thin tip makes it SO easy to apply eyeliner to your lid. You can make your eyeliner as thick or thin as you want.

This product is also perfect if you like doing a winged eyeliner look. In the morning I can quickly do my eyeliner without no hassle and quickly get out the door without having to keep wiping my mistakes away and reapplying.  This eyeliner also does not crease or spilt throughout the day. It stays on until you want it to come off.

I don’t have much to say about this product apart from that I really like it and I highly recommend it.

Do I think it’s worth the money? Yes!
I think its such a good, hassle free eyeliner that anyone can use.

This product is £4.99 and you can find it here.

There’s currently a ‘Buy one get the second half price’ On these two Maybelline products In Boots.

Have you tried these products? What’s your opinion on them?

Quick & Easy Makeup Routine | 2015

IMG_2373

PicMonkey Collage1

Here’s my ‘Quick & Easy’ Makeup look
When putting on makeup, I like it to be simple and lightweight. I mainly focus on my brows and eyes and only put concealer and powder/ foundation on days I need it most.

Today I went with just some concealer under my eyes, some pressed powder, subtle pink lips and some eyeliner to make my eyes stand out.

My skin is not working with me lately and I have been breaking out a lot more than usual so my skin isn’t perfect but doing face masks and not wearing foundation is helping get rid of them.

Let’s get on with what products I have one my face;

IMG_2398

Clinique | Turnaround Daytime Revitalising Moisturiser

I first like to use a moisturiser, if it is warm outside it is best to put a moisturiser on that has some kind of sun protection. I use the Clinique Turnaround Daytime Revitalising Moisturiser. This is a lightweight moisture that helps hydrate my skin so it doesn’t get dry throughout the day.

This moisturiser also gives your skin a little bit of a glow, which is great if you don’t want to wear foundation.

I got this in a set with some other productions but the bigger tube of this is £30 and you can find it here.

Collection | Long Lasting Perfection Concealer.

Next I go in with my concealer, The concealer I use is the Collection Long Lasting Perfection Concealer.

I use this concealer under my eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes or redness on my face. This also helps brighten under your eyes.

The colour i got matched my skin perfectly and it makes it look like I don’t have any concealer on.

With this production I like to use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush, This just help me make sure the concealer is all nicely blended in to my skin.

I will be doing a separate blog post with my review on this concealer.

This concealer is £4.16 and you can find it here.

Clinique | Instant Lift For Brows

This brow product is £16.00 and you can find it here.

Bourjois Beauty Haul | 2015

Bourjois1

The other day I was in super drug looking for a lipstick as I wanted a nude lip colour or one closer to my lip colour. I came across the Bourjois Rouge Editon Velvet lipstick collection and the shade 07 Nude-ist instantly caught my eye. As there was a 3 for 2 offer on I decided to pick up the lipstick and two other products.

Bourjois | Rouge Edition Velvet 07 Nude-ist

This lipstick colour caught my eye and I fell in love with the shade. I found myself in the super drug store 3 days in a row just swatching this colour on my hand before I gave in and bought it. I must of got on my sisters nerves dragging her in everyday but she eventually convinced me to buy it as it is such a gorgeous shade!

I found this colour to be a ‘your lips but better’ shade, it makes my lips look natural while making them stand out. When applying this to yours lips, it applies nicely and feels smooth. It isn’t cakey looking or drying on the lips which is a bonus.

The brush is a good shape and size and helps to apply the product nicely to your lips as it is not too big or too small.

Overall I am impressed with this lipstick and the shade is such a gorgeous everyday colour.

This lipstick is £8.99 and you can find it here.

Bourjois | 123 Perfect Foundation No51

I chose this foundation over the healthy mix foundation because of the 3 correcting pigments it claims to do.

It has;

Yellow pigments for anti-dark circles
Mauve pigments for anti-dull complexion
Green pigments for anti-redness

When I got home, I applied it to my face with my Real Techniques Stippling brush and found it blended quick and easy.
It helped to reduce the redness on my cheeks and also reduce my under eye bags.

The colour I picked for my skin tone was N051 Light Vanilla and it matched my skin perfectly. You couldn’t tell I had foundation on. I then used powder to help set it into place.

It was a hot day when I tried this out and I applied it around 3 in the afternoon and didn’t take it off until around 9 and it lasted until I took it off and it did not smudge or run. I was surprised with this and knew I could wear it in the hot weather and not have it slowly move down my face throughout the day.

The coverage of this foundation is light to medium and you can build it up or leave it light if you don’t like to layer it on and prefer a more natural look.

Overall I am pleased with this foundation as it ticks all the right boxes.

This foundation is £10.99 and you can find it here.

Bourjois | Mega Liner Ultra Black

This product I picked up because I needed a new eyeliner and because there was an offer on this product would be free. I decided to pick this one up as the tip was angled and I thought it would be good for winged liner because thats how I wear my eyeliner.

When using this I actually found out it is good if you just want to line your eyes. The angled tip on the other hand made the eyeliner come out a bit thicker then it would with a tipped end. I also found it harder to create the winged end as the angled tip made it a little more difficult to fill it in.

This is a good eyeliner to just line your eyes with but not if you want to create the winged eyeliner look as the eyeliner tip is just a bit too big. I also think it is the way you apply the eyeliner and how hard you press down.

This eyeliner is £7.49 and you can find it here.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner – Review

IMG_1562

I’ve only heard about this brand for just under a year now as it’s only recently became known in the magazines i read and on blogs.
Eyeko products are a little on the pricy side but i think they are worth the price.

‘Our easy-to-apply, liquid eyeliner pen allows you to create thick feline flicks or fine defined lines to accentuate your eyes.  With our unique long-lasting formula featuring key ingredient Sodium Hyaluronate for a gratifying, colour-intense smudge-proof finish.’ Eyeko

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner – Black 

I remember getting a tester in a magazine a while back and testing it out, when i first used it i must admit we didn’t get along and it went in my makeup back and wasn’t touched. I then re discovered it while doing my makeup the other day and I’ve fallen in love!

I think the reason i first didn’t get on with it was because when i first used it, it seemed like it had already ran out and was coming out patchy. But after giving it another go It came out fine and i haven’t had a problem with it.

It helps me make the best winged eyeliner and it stays put all day and once it’s dried it does not budge! It’s also super easy to clean off with makeup remover which is a plus, as no one likes to spend ages trying to get eyeliner off their eyelids! Sometimes you have to re go over the lines to make it more darker but that does not bother me.

The nib is bigger at the bottom and thin at the top which is perfect for getting the line precise when doing a winged look. Also you can either press lightly for a fine line or press a little harder to get a thicker line.

This eyeliner is £12.00 and I’m sure there’s many dupes of it flying around but i personally love this and it’s replaced my other liquid eyeliner.

What’s your favourite eyeliner?

No7 Advent Calendar – Day 23

hfhf

christmas

Day 23 of the No7 advent calendar

No7 Stay Perfect – Eyeliner (Brown)

‘No7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Pencil is a long wearing and silky smooth pencil for amazing colour and definition.’

Today in the advent calendar i got this brown ‘Stay Perfect – Pencil eyeliner’. A few day’s ago i got this but in black, i like these eyeliners as they as soft and come out dark, the brown one is such a nice colour and you could possibly use it on your brows as it’s a nice shade and you can use it lightly or press down harder to get a darker colour. For £6.50 i think you get such a good eyeliner that isn’t going to hurt when you apply it and its gentle on the skin, it also comes in different colours so you have a wide range to choose from. You can use this on your lash line, waterline or you can use them to tighten your eyes to make your lashes appear thicker and fuller. I’m happy with todays little gift and glad they give you one in black and one in brown as not everyone wears black.

You can pick this up from boots for £6.50 in brown here.

What eyeliner do you use? Gel, Liquid or pencil?
