Unfortunately I discovered how easy it is to order from Superdrug. I say unfortunately because I often find it hard to stop myself from ordering something new all the time. I blame the free delivery over £10. I mean most places you have to spend £15 or £20 at least to be able to order things to your house. And let’s be honest it is the easiest thing in the world to spend £10 in Superdrug. So after rambling on about this, and the point I was rambling about this is because, I was browsing through the website and some new bits from L’Oreal peeked my interest and I had to order them…
I have been looking for a new primer that is mattifying, as I have been struggling to keep my forehead matte all day. I love using the Benefit Porefessionals on my cheeks, it does a great job of filling in my gigantic pores. But I needed something different for my forehead, because that’s where I tend to get the most oily. So I decided to pick up the Infallible Priming Base. I have to say it does a good job of keeping my face as matte as possible during the day. I has a very liquidy texture and a little goes a long way. It makes my skin feel very smooth and even. Also I have no trouble applying foundation over it. I think it is a great drugstore primer if you, like me, have oily skin.
The next two items I really liked and ordered were the Infallible Color Riche Crayon eyeliners in two shades, I’ve got black (which is funnily the blue one) and Violet, which is the purple one. I was sooo excited to get these. You already know from my love for the NYX Vivid Bright eyeliners, that I like to go for coloured eyeliner from time to time. These are incredible as they stay put all day and they do not budge at all! There were no prints on my eyelid by the end of the day, it wasn’t running down under my eyes either. I find the blue one to be more vibrant and very, very pigmented. The purple one is pigmented too, but has a little bit of a sheen to it as well, while the blue one is completely matte. I like to use them over my black eyeliner as a little bit of somethin’ somethin’. I also used the purple one on my bottom lash line and I really liked how that looked.
So these were a few make up bits that I got from L’Oreal recently and have been using a lot. Have you tried any of these product? What is your fave product from L’Oreal?
Until next time,
I got a very exciting package in the post today and it was a delivery from Feelunique. I know it contained the new Tanya Burr Cosmetics collection, the Selfie Story collection and I am just so excited to share my opinion on it with you.
I usually don’t go anywhere without wearing mascara and a liner, but at least a mascara. So I was just very happy that two of my absolute fave make up items were in this collection and I finally get to try them out.
But let’s talk about the brow pencil, Selfie Scuplt, first as I am sort of typing this blog post as I’m doing my make up so I can get my true first impression written down.
I actually really like the shape of the brow pencil. I chose the shade medium and it is a perfect fit for my browns. I like the rectangular shape and it is easy to use and really shapes your brows well. I like how I can move it around as I’m putting it on and getting different angles of the product. Just seems to be working perfectly.
The next item I’m trying out is the Selfie Flick eyeliner. I’ve watched Tanya’s videos when she was talking about this new products and when I saw her using the eyeliner I got very intrigued. I can say now already it is so flippin’ good! She said it is easier to apply eyeliner with this one and I have to say she was right. I have been applying liqued eyeliner to my eyes for years and years so I have no trouble with it, but even I can tell that with this one it’s just way easier. I like how thin the brush is because sometimes I really just want a thin line to be there in my lashline. Also thanks to the thin brush doing a winged look is so easy. I usually like felt tip liner for a winged look but this one works even better for that purpose. On top of that it is really black, which sometimes can be an issue with eyeliners. I think I have found my new fave eyeliner overall, if you haven’t guessed that already.
So last but by no means least is my new love the Selfie Lash. It is the prettiest mascara I have tried in a long time. It gives long voluminous lashes. It doesn’t clamp up at all and I really like the shape of the wand and the bristles, I feel like they coat every single eyelash. I think it gives very nice big lashes but not too overdramatic ones, but natural ones. Which I think look better. The formula is wet but not too wet that you can’t really use it and you need to wait for it to dry out a little as with some other mascaras. It feels like the perfect consistency and it works perfectly for the first time. I am really really impressed amd also so so happy with it.
So yeah as the title suggests I am in love with this collection. Even though I just put my make up on I can’t wait to remove it and apply it again tomorrow. I do honestly think these products stand out amongst all the other drugstore brands and I appreciate all the effort and work Tanya and her team put into these products because the results are just fab. Congrats Tanya Burr Cosmetics! I can’t say enough good things!
And lastly here’s a picture of me with my ready make up having used all the goodies mentioned above.
I hope you liked this blog post! x
