CURRENTLY USED MAKE UP PRODUCTS

I don't post about a lot about make up so I thought I could do a bit of an in depth of what I have been using:

Shu Uemura eyelash curler
I bought this when I was still in Japan because I was curious about how good it actually is. Considering that it's sold in Japan at almost half the UK price I thought I could give it a go. For me, an eyelash curler is an eyelash curler. I always believed that there isn't much you can do to its design for it to make any considerable difference but oh how I was wrong. The curler is actually amazing - just like everyone says it is! Although curling your lashes may not be a necessity for you, I prefer the way mine look with them. I would totally recommend this but I can imagine how the £20 price tag may be a bit off-putting for some.

Maybelline hyper curl volum'express
So, you may be wondering why on earth I purchased a "curl" mascara when I find that the Shu Uemura curler does such an amazing job. I have to be honest with you: it was hello kitty which caught my eye. I had not seen it anywhere else so I thought I try it out but it is not anything special.

Diorshow mascara (090)
The diorshow mascara was actually one of the first high-end mascaras I purchased. I absolutely loved it but I never went back to it because I was too busy trying out new and different ones. But here we are with that same mascara and it's just as good as I remember.

Kate super sharp liner (BK-1)
This is the first time I ever bought this eyeliner and actually, it's the first time that I have bought a liquid eyeliner in a while - I'm more of a gel eyeliner kinda girl. It's very easy to use and it doesn't mess up if I decide to build it up to a thicker look.

Bioderma eye contour gel
Over the summer the skin around my eyes became really sensitive and on quite a few occasions, really itching. I headed straight to the skincare department in Auchan before going to Japan and spent ages browsing all the different eye gels. I finally came across the Bioderma one which appealed to me the most for a couple of reasons: It clearly stated that it is suitable for contact lens wearers and I have been using the Bioderma make up remover. It ended up helping with my sensitive eyes and now they don't get so itchy when I wake up.

Benefit Porefessional
I'm pretty sure I asked you guys a while back whether or not this product was worth it to splurge on. Before moving back to England I went to Sephora and bought it. I've been using it for about a week and a bit now but I have to say.. I was really unimpressed with it. After I applied it my skin felt like I had rubbed flour all over the centre of my face. It did not feel nice. Do you guys still really like this product?

Nars bronzer (casino)
I wanted to buy a powder bronzer so I headed straight for the Nars section in Sephora and decided to get a bronzer in casino. It is really good but I have to get used to putting it on lightly because I seem to have a bad habit of swooping the brush around for way to long and applying waaay too much on my face.

Sleek contour kit (medium)
I first heard about this when I started watching Sammi's youtube channel (beautycrush) a while ago. She always said how amazing it was and she continues to say the same. I gave in and decided to try it out as well. I LOVE IT. Again, I need to control myself when I apply it because I'm still not quite used to using it. Do you guys use this too?

  2. I use the Sleek contour palette and I love it too! But you're right about the 'careful application'. I definitely love sleek, especially their blushes.

    1. I end up having to re-do my face because the contour/bronzer looks too theatrical :p oooh, I haven't tried any of their blushes before. Might be an excuse to make a sneaky trip to superdrug haha.

  3. Have you tried shaking the porefessional before use? It tends to be better in texture as you use more of the product, I experienced too that the start of the tube is a bit more 'floury':P Also, do you have dry skin? Cause I noticed the product works best with oily skin types. Anyway I thought it was way too expensive for what it does, L'Oreal studio secrets professional Magic Perfecting Base is basically the same thing for half the price.

    1. Oooh, no i have no though! I still get a similar effect but I'll stick with the product for a little while longer and see how things going. I feel like a i really odd skin. my forehead and around my eyes get quite oily but around my nose and lower cheeks it gets really dry. i have to check out this l'oreal thing. and what a plus it being cheaper as well! thanks so much :D (yay this means more shopping haha)
