Review / Primark's Eyebrow Pencil


Around a month ago I stumbled upon Primark’s Eyebrow Pencil and wondered if it would work for me, bearing in mind that it was only £1, I snatched it up while in the queue waiting to pay for my other purchase with hope that it would be the one for me.

I was excited to try it because the pencil it’s self was quite long plus the spoolie on the other end – Bonus! Unfortunately as soon as I applied it to fill in my eyebrows I noticed the thickness and clay-like texture it gave and I knew it wouldn’t be good for shading, I carried on to then find my eyebrows looking like slugs! Quickly I flipped it over and used the spoolie to brush out the product and hoped it would blend to give me a more natural look, but straight away I had an orange shadow around my eyebrow which meant I’d have to get my concealer back out to cover up the mess.

I have tried this product many ways and with other products as well, but nothing seemed to work. I find this product not very defining at all and just altogether made my eyebrows feel painted on and greasy. The fact that it was only £1 made me feel fine about giving up on a new purchase; I’d definitely say you get what you pay for. For those who read this and have this product, if it works for you then that is great and I envy you, it would be a life (and money) savour if this worked for me, but I think I will stick to my £10-£12 products!

Review / Body Shops 'Flawless Finish Collection' Instablur and BB Cream.

Hey guys, its me again!
For a while now I have owned Body Shop's 'Flawless Finish Collection' Instablur and BB Cream and I feel like it's time to review it for you all.


First of all lets talk about Instablur -  it comes in a white tube which is good for travelling, the substance is clear and jelly-like, it applies very smoothly and is great for your t-zone! It is very effective and it does a good job at blocking up any open pores.

Moving onto the BB Cream - Unfortunetly I can not say this gives a full coverage, but on the other hand it is great for those hot, sweaty days and if you have a minimal make-up policy (example: school or work). It comes out of the tube as a white liquid, but after applying it onto your face the liquid changes to match your skin tone. The BB Cream is available in different shades and I got mine in the shade 01.

Overall I think they are great products but personally I prefer a full coverage. I will infact keep the products for those hot, sunny days!

The Instablur is £14 - http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/make-up/face/all-in-one-instablur-universal.aspx
The BB Cream is £12 - http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/make-up/face/all-in-one-bb-cream.aspx

Review / Artdeco's 'Eyebrow Pen'


As I walked into boots to pick up my beloved Soap & Glory 'Archery' brow pen, I was informed that boots had non in stock! I had waited months for my old Archery to run out so I could buy another, and I was in desperate need of a brow pen. I have attempted to use pencils in the past but i'm afraid my heart belongs to a pen.
So I wondered into Debenhams to see what I could find, as I stumbeled on Artdeco's stall to find myself buying their eyebrow pen. Asoon as I got home I finally finished the rest of my make-up!

I would definetly give the eyebrow pen a 10/10 as I feel it is just as good as the Soap & Glory's 'Archery' or even better. They make my eyebrows more defined and give a HD look.

Review / Rimmle London's 'Wake Me Up' foundation and concealer.

Hi Guys!
Seeing as this is my first official blog post I thought I’d make it short and snappy.
Recently I have purchased Rimmel London’s ‘Wake me up’ foundation in the shade 103 ‘True Ivory’ and the matching concealer in the shade 'Classic Beige'.

I start off by covering any blemishes with the concealer and just blend it in with my finger; it provides a very satisfying coverage and cancels out any redness. Then I apply the foundation with a flat top foundation brush, I feel that the foundation is very easy to work with and gives an excellent coverage. The finish is very different to any previous foundations I have used as I usually go for a matt finish; on the other hand this foundation gives me a healthy duey glow. (Which I am now very fond of).




I will leave links below to the products from the boots website.

The concealer was  £5.49


Please check out a review I have done on both concealer and foundation on my youtube channel.
