My face today, drugstore♥

Hello everyone!



The weather here today is absolutely diabolical, rain, wind and cold all in one has decided to hit us, after only two days of actual summer weather. So, obviously it looks like we won't be going anywhere, so i thought I would write for you.  After all, that it what I like doing most! Today I am just going to be at home all day, though I still wanted to wear makeup because I was just in the mood to experiment. So, I turned on that spotify playlist and off I went. 

Now, first of all, the foundation I used today was the collection lasting perfection foundation. We purchased this after endless love from the same concealer and we were intrigued to whether this would be as good. Now, I'm not too sure. I feel as though it does have 'lasting perfection' as it claims, but it does feel ever so heavy on the skin. I think I need to use this a few more times before deciding!

Next, it was time for contour. I used the sleek contour palette and decided to only do the shadow sculpting part and not add any of the highlight on the right hand side as I had a different product for that. I love this, and have done for months now. It is always what I go to for this part of the makeup routine and glides on beautifully. So very cheap too, even though that packaging looks high end.

Now comes highlight. I wanted something that was a little more pinky toned and so used a newly discovered product, the collection gorgeous glow blush block. This is beautiful! You can go for a more highlighted look by using the top two shades, or even get a blushed look with the bottom few. Or, if that's what you fancy, you could swirl them all together to get both. I just love this, and it is so cheap!

Obviously for powder I used the rimmel stay matte. There isn't much else to say about this that hasn't already been said... it sets amazingly, lasts amazingly and looks perfect. This is the fourth we have got through in about three to four months and so it must be good! We hardly ever finish anything! We have it in translucent, purely because then it can go over contour and not cover it up.

Now for eyes. This eyeliner pen is one that we've had for ages, but I don't really use it because my first experience wasn't great. But today I thought I would give it a second shot and I didn't think it was all too bad. I like to create a slight flick on my eyeliner, because I have quite small almond shaped eyes that need opening up a bit. I tried to create this with this pen, but I found the tip really difficult for it and so only lined normally with no flick with this. So as long as you don't want a flick, this is okay.

Although I couldn't create a flick with the essence pen, I still wanted one, so went for this P.S. love.. (Primark) eye liner pencil. I hardly ever use pencils, I always go for a felt tip, but today is the day that has changed. It is amazing, and you get two in a pack for £1! 
Primark don't have a website so I can't link it for you, but you can buy these in all of their stores.

This mascara is a new one from Rimmel, and is part of the wake me up range. I love the wake me up products, and had to try it. It's formula is blended with cucumbers to help protect your lashes all day long. I love this and it will for sure be a new staple. 
You can buy yours here.

Finally, it was time for lips. Obviously it was a no brainer but to use the soap and glory motherpucker gloss stick in nudist. It is my favorite lip product by far and I earlier discovered we only have a little bit left. I need to get to boots as soon as possible!

Pink drugstore eye crayons, what to buy and what not to buy♥

♥♥♥
Hello everyone!

In July, we are attending our cousin's summer wedding, of which is being held in Italy. Of course, we have been planning what kinds of makeup looks would suit our outfits, and after some great inspiration for inthefrow's video, we came to a conclusion. That of which was to have a shimmery pink eye with a purple through the crease, finished off with a spot of slightly flicked brown gel liner. Being only teens who don't earn money, it was then our quest to find products that would be long wearing in the heat, as well as look beautiful all day. 

At first, the thing that we jumped to was the 'Maybelline 24 hour color tattoo', because who doesn't love this eh? But I wanted to try something different, that I haven't ventured into before. Then I came across this, the Rimmel London Eyeful eye crayon in the shade '100 Girls Only'. 

At first glance, this was the one. The colour was perfect for what we wanted, it was so cheap, and all round amazing. However, DO NOT BE FOOLED! When we tried this when we got home, it was extremely greasy on the eye, so definitely not suited to hot weathers. In desperation to try and get this looking right, we tried applying to the eye with several different primer bases and powders but we had no joy. Also, we just can't seem to fathom how on earth you would get more product out of it once you had used the top? On the bottom, there is a section of black plastic, that to me indicated that it needs to be rolled up, but no, when you move that nothing happens. Whereas the pencil isn't wooden so can't be sharpened? Basically, do not buy this product! I would give you a link but I don't think there is any point... (we bought ours from ebay so it is probably discontinued in drugstores).

Then, we ventured into town to find something else. We stumbled across this, Miss Sporty's fabulous eyes glossy shadow stick in '170 strawberry coulis'. 
In price comparison, the two products were virtually the same, yet the quality of this is much ,much better. It's creamy formula glides onto your eyelid perfectly and lasts a very long time. I just know that this will be perfect for our holiday and it is finally what we've been looking for. 
You can buy this here.


Although i do prefer the Rimmel version shade wise, that is not something to go for due to the quality.
We are super excited to be lucky enough to be flying over to Italy very soon, and keep updated as we will be posting our wedding day guest makeup look as well as our outfits when we arrive back.
