Come To The Dark Side – Mini Reviews #fotd

Affiliate links used help me to keep my blog running at no cost to my reader.

I don’t know if it’s the geek in me or just that I watched the most recent Big Bang Theory but I’ve been a little too excited with May the 4th (be with you) coming up tomorrow. That and getting back into the rock and metal I used to always listen too and mixing it back in with the classics that get played at work on Radio 2. So I digress but I felt a little rock chick in of all places Primark and picked up the Pink Floyd T-Shirt I’m wearing. The Primark tees are kinda kicking ass at the moment along with another geeky love an old skool Marvel tee. I’m also sporting some heat free curls which is basically what my hair looks like now when I don’t do anything too it. I was so shocked myself this morning that I went with it and kept it natural along with the frizzy bits.

The Dark Side – How To & Mini Product Reviews

After seeing Elese Aesthete get her Mac Lip Pencil in Nightmoth last week I kinda remembered how much I still love a dark shade which has kicked off the dark side look. To get myself back into it I did a watered down version today. I used Macs Lip Pencil in Vino a dark purple which I used more as a stain basically smudging the shade out on my lips. I then went over lightly with the Korres Plum Lip Butter to give some shiny and stop my lips drying out which allows to easy top up of colour. I’m still on the fence about the Smashbox Always Sharp Eyeliner as it does give a a strong black line but it has it’s draw back, easy to get sharp but I’m finding application a little fiddly. That and it sometimes bleeds into the corner of my eyes but I guess that adds a little grunge to the look. I even added a little bit of the Loreal Colour Infallible in Burning Black along the lash line to add a little sparkle with the angled eyeliner brush.

A new standout for me has been the Revlon Photoready 3d Volume Mascara in Blackest Black. This is similar to the 2true Pro Volume with the spiky wands but the Revlon is less wet and I’m happy with it. One coat is enough and it doesn’t clump on me , two coats can get a little spidery. When I got this mascara at Boots it was while the 3 for 2 offer was on. I picked up the Loreal True Match foundation which I’m not really loving. I don’t know if it’s my skin or what but I can’t apply it with my fingers without looking cakey and seperating. Up to now though when I used the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge dry with the True Match it’s pretty good. Can’t decide if the shades a little dark, may do for summer. For a little bit of spring time glow I used the Mua Bon Bon Blusher which you need only a dab as it’s rather pigmented for such an affordable brand.

I forgot to put the Mac Select Cover Concealer which I used under my eyes in the photo above. I’m thinking I need a new concealer as this one is feeling too heavy for this time of year. If you have any suggestions I’d love to know what you’re using. I s it wrong I’m really wanting to swatch the Mac Amplified lipstick in none other than the shade Darkside a deep burgundy. What I’m thinking is I would have a reason to pick up the Nightmoth lip pencil at the same time. How about that to justify buying them both? lol
