June’s been a bit of a good one in terms of experimenting with colour. Be it lips, eyes or cheeks I’ve picked one to go bold with which has made my June faves simple for me. Altering colours away from the same old bronze shade has changed looks that would otherwise be very much the same.
After my Smash box Always Sharp came to an end I was up for trying something new. First up is the Eyeko Skinny eyeliner a great freebie from …. It has added a touch of navy with superior wear and ease of use for a felt tip. Then came the testing of the Laura Mercier longwear creme pencils. Having a choice of five shades made this fun to play around with. It’s super creamy and opaque but once it’s set there’s no moving it. The shade range included bolds and more muted shades and all work as well as each other.
I know this has seen a favourites post or two before but when playing around with eye looks in shades of blue, green and purple I need a more toned down lip. This fell to the well loved Nars Velvet matte lip pencil in Sex Machine. It’s easy to apply and wears pretty well throughout the day. When I do need to top up it goes on no fussing around because of the nude shade it is.
I’m not sure this counts it’s not a product so much as a weight off my shoulders and head. Taking a good 6 inches off made my hair mote manageable and simply easier to maintain. Styling is quicker and I suppose my BlowPro You Only Smooth is definitely part of that. A saviour from heated appliance I don’t have to worry as much when I do get my Ghd’s out.
Very much a recent purchase but when Ross said something that made me proud I finally felt like what I’ve been saying may have gone in. It was along the lines of “When you tell me about how a moisturiser should help and make my skin feel better for it this is what this moisturiser does. Oh it also doesn’t make my forehead super shiny either that’s annoying” . Seems like something small but Ross explaining properly why he likes something is a bit of a miracle. The product he’s referring to is the Rehab Mens’s No Shine Moisturizer for oil control. It came from T.K.Maxx last week for £4.99 I think but retails around the £15 mark. He also said this was on par with the sample he had of the Clarins moisturiser that he loved means it would be worth repurchasing as its half the price of that.
Love Love Love and getting more use out of this one than the matte balm. Like both but love this more for an everyday look. It’s me in a rush but looking put together, I also like that if I want to eat I can wipe this off and afterwards swipe it back on in a jiffy.
Metcalf Cinnamon popcorn is to die for, it’s so good I can get through a share bag on my own. Even better is for a share bag it’s only 9 pro points. The popcorn isn’t over powered more like a good sprinkle of cinnamon. It means I can have something sweet without having to feel guilty as a whole bag takes ages to finish off. Best bit of all Ross doesn’t like it so no sharing either! lol
