I can finally tick a few products off my last wishlist…
I searched high and low for this lippie, only to discover that only 12 of the 20 shades were released in the UK and Ireland so off to eBay I went and snapped one up for around a tenner including delivery (from Las Vegas!) from this seller.
This is a gorgeous creamy nude that, yep you guessed it, Kim Kardashian wears and it’s fast become one of my favourites.
It took me a long time to get on the Smoky Lash bandwagon, but now I’m on it I’m not sure if I can use anything else. Have worn this every single day since I bought it about a month ago and I’m in love! My only gripe is that it is a little pricey as I usually wear drugstore brand mascaras like Rimmel or Max Factor and this one is €22…but for me, it’s worth it. Definitely want to try the waterproof version for my holidays next month!
I’ve raved about this once or twice already but I really love it, similar to the MUFE Star Powders it’s a very finely milled shimmer dust that you can wear on the eyes or cheeks. The shade I have, Goldilocks, is a gorgeous soft gold that adds the perfect amount of glimmer to any look.
Another one used by Kimmy! I have a really oily tzone and I’m forever trying out different products to keep my skin looking matte all day. I received this as a Christmas present from my Mam, but haven’t been able to give it a proper try yet as my skin was really dry over Christmas due to the cold weather and central heating. It’s returning to it’s normal shiny self though, so I should be able to review this very soon!
I picked this up in London just before Christmas and it’s the first cremestick liner I’ve tried….I won’t be buying anymore normal pencil liners from MAC any time soon, this is ten times better! Goes on so creamy like a dream but still has the same lasting power, I also got it in the shade Creamola which I’m loving paired with the Revlon Soft Nude. A new must have.
I tried a sample of this, as the price tag scared me into trying before buying and I’m so glad that I did because I would have been so annoyed if I paid the crazy price for this foundation. I didn’t sit well on my skin at all, was too dry in places yet couldn’t live up to it’s matte name in others. A definite no no for me.
Since I’ve never even been to Morocco (embarrassing), I thought I should at least try the oil! Another one that I didn’t buy, but tried a sample first. The jury is still out on this one, I can’t decide if it does anything for me. I have read so many amazing reviews though so I’m going to give it another try.
Now, for my new wishlist…
The O by Cloud Nine heated rollers – have heard nothing but good reviews on these babies but the price tag is a bit scary. Might try them in a salon first because I can’t commit without knowing they’re going to work in my very reluctant-to-hold-curl hair!
Laura Mercier foundations, primer and concealer – the lot basically!
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara – a possible dupe for Smoky Lash?
Rimmel 700 Nude Delight Lipstick & GOSH Darling lipstick– could one be the perfect nude?
Models Own Pearly Queen Nail Polish
NARS Sheer Matte Foundation (again!)
MAC Powder Blush in Enough Said, Gingerly and Tenderling
OPI Sweetheart Nail Polish
Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Blusher Brush – looks perfect for foundation
Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush – another one for flawless foundation application
Oscar Blandi Clear Volumizing Dry Shampoo – because we know the brunette ones aren’t brown
Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Distortion – as seen here
Benefit BAGgal Waterproof Eyeliner – I NEED something that will stay on the waterline, could this be it?
MUFE Aqua Black – or maybe this is the one?
Sumita Eyeliner by Ziba Beauty – another one recommended by Kim K’s MUA, or this?
Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner – or maybe this?
So as you can tell I’m on the hunt for the perfect foundation and brush to apply it with and I’m on a quest to finally find an eyeliner that will stay in the waterline without smudging, running or irritating my eyes. The closest I’ve come to finding it so far is Inglot’s Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in 77 Matte Black which works amazing on most people but unfortunately I’m allergic. Sad face. I’ve also tried MAC Kohl in Smolder, Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero, MUFE Aqua Eyes in OL, Avon Supershock Luxe Lace Gel Pencil, MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack….you name it I’ve tried it.
Any suggestions, please send them my way!
