Bobbi-Brown-Long-Wear-Cream-Shadow-Stick-Golden-Pink

 

I hope you are all having a good week so far as we are almost half way through. Here in the UK it is A level results day tomorrow and like many of you, my brother will firstly gain his results as well as find out whether he got into the university he wants to attend from Septemeber so if this is the same for you GOOD LUCK!

IMG_7580As for today’s blog post, I thought I would review another one of my newest purchases from Bobbi Brown in the form of her long-wear shadow sticks. I have had these for about a week and have the shades golden pink which is a shimmery peachy pink color and violet plum which from the name you can guess is a deep purple color which will be stunning in fall.  These shadow sticks are great as the formula is long lasting and really quick as all you need to do is swipe these over the lid and go little to no blending is needed !!

I love these shadow sticks as they are so easy and you really don’t need to be good aBobbi-Brown-Violet-Plum-shadow-stick-closeup make-up to use them and as they are so compact and fit nicely into your make-up bag without taking up too much valuable space. This means that these will also be nice for travel as I am on vacation, I do not want to mess with a bunch of shadows, or worry about palettes breaking, etc. I do feel that these wear well and I don’t get any creasing and the color lasts a good 8 or more hours and then fades lightly, but evenly so doesn’t end up looking horrible or all smudged under your eyes at the end of the night.

Overall these are a little more expensive than those cream shadows in the drugstore as the retail for £23 each and are perhaps most similar to the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks. I do like this products and if you are into easy make-up then these are something you should go and check out!

Until next time,

MAC extreme dimension 3D black Lash Mascara.

Good Morning on Friday August 11th,

Getting back into things I thought I would start with a review of my newest mascara $_58which I received as part of a beauty subscription service.  The lightweight and whipped texture of this product claims to  saturate lashes root to tip, adding volume, extending length and creating curl. This mascara also conditions your lashes for softness and flexibility. The overall effect of this product is one of extreme dimension which doesn’t smudge everywhere or leave you with flakes under your eyes at the end of the day.

DSCF94072I have only used this a couple of times and while I do like the large applicator, the overall look that this product gives for me personally is too wet meaning that all my lashes tend to clump together. Whilst I do like volume I do prefer the fluttery look in terms of lashes especially during the day which means that the look achieved by this mascara is better for a night time look.Overall I think whether you like this product will depend on the type of effect you want your lashes to have and at the same time, there are perhaps other mascaras available on the high street which give you the same look but are cheaper than this one which retails at £19.50.

Have an amazing weekend and please leave in the comments your favorite mascara as I really want to know!

A quick little update

Good Afternoon on Thursday, August 10th.

BLIMEY its been a long time since I have written on here and whilst this seems to always be the beginning of every blog post at the minute but it has been almost a month since I put anything on here and honestly I have missed it. I have missed sitting down and updating you either on what has happened in my life post-graduation as well as the latest products I have been trying out.

So the current situation is that I am still applying and looking for a graduate job with the plan to become a primary school teacher some point in the future but right now I really need a job!. I also really want to get back into blogging and therefore the schedule will be based on uploading two times a week on a Friday, and a Wednesday to begin with as the previous three times just wasn’t fitting in with everything else. I have a couple of posts planned in terms of holiday as well as some products that I really want to share with you both hair as mine seems to be having a melt down as I have just come back from holiday as well as a few skin care pieces.

As always I hope you are having a good week and see you soon!
