Well I broke the blogger cardinal sin and used this product before I photographed it so I would like to apologise if it looks a little messy! I had a gift voucher with a tenner left on it that I had to use up so I bought this new Bourjois Colorband shadow and eyeliner pencil and a nail polish from 17. I’m a big fan of a pencil or any product in stick form. I have a bajillion lip crayons and a few blusher ones and many eye shadow sticks. They’re so handy for throwing in your bag and you don’t really need an applicator in a rush.
I’m having great fun trying out all of the products I got in my recent France haul here. I’ve never tried Kiko before so was excited to give their products a whirl. I expected to like the Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow as they come so highly recommended by beauty bloggers but I am actually wowed by the Water Eyeshadow!
I’m probably the last to the party on this review. The Maybelline Colour Tattoos are a bit of a cult product among beauty bloggers. I bought one of these ages ago and I wasn’t too sure about it. The shade I tried was Eternal Gold and it had a slight glittery finish to it and I’m not a big glitter fan.
In case you haven’t noticed I am loving new kid on the block Makeup Revolution a lot! The products I have tried so far have just been so great and are much higher quality than their price tag would lead you to believe. Their liquid blush that I reviewed here is fab, I’ve been using it so much. Makeup Revolution released a collection of limited edition palettes a few months back and I just loved the colours in this Run Boy Run palette and couldn’t resist picking it up as part of my last haul.
I am LOVING Makeup Revolution at the moment! If you haven’t heard about them yet they’re a budget makeup brand that launched in the UK at the start of the year. You can read my experiences with them so far here. I recently got my British Beauty Blogger dream box here and was delighted to get this Makeup Revolution palette as a part of it.
Sleek has very recently arrived in Ireland as there is now a counter in Boots Liffey Valley. You were always able to order it online but it’s super handy now. I was doing my big Christmas pressie shop in Liffey Valley and treated myself to a few bits from Sleek. I bought a lip balm, lip gloss and this palette.
An oldie but a goodie as my mam would say. I think I’m on my fourth set of Benefit’s Big Beautiful Eyes. It’s just my failsafe, go to for my eyes. I think the colours are so flattering and soft and they go on lovely. The palette contains three shades to highlight and sculpt eyes. It also contains a pan of Benefit Bo-ing concealer in shade 2.
I do love a bargain and was very excited to see an Urban Decay palette pop up as a Groupon deal. It was half price at €18 and I think about 300 of them were sold of course and the deal sold out. What a bargain – did you get it? I now assume Urban Decay must be discontinuing it though because last time I checked it was half price on the US site. I thought I’d give it a road test anyway as a lot of the shadows are sold individually.
I do love Urban Decay eye shadows, they’re so strongly pigmented and they have such an amazing choice of colours. I own the original Naked Palette and a few of the single shadows and they never fail to impress.
