Hello all my beauty lovers, I am bringing back my makeup reviews, hauls and used products. Tried and tested.
I always buy a mixture of high end and drug store, and now I feel I am getting used to the sort of formulas I like I feel I am more than ready to show you my tips, tricks and all time favourite products.
Today I had a good look in my makeup drawer and thought, I do not use half of this makeup and it’s taking up so much room. Today was the day to remove the makeup I have tried and disliked or just not used for a LONG time.
All the products in the picture above have probably been in my drawer for as long as 1-4 years (hides face in shame). I know I know 4 years is a bloody long time to not use it all.
I am trying to teach myself to use eye shadow more and create some new eye looks. This is a huge lesson for me, I am no way going to start looking like those beauty gurus on Youtube in a LONG time. Hence why a lot of the above makeup is eye shadow palettes.
Smashbox palette with 30 eye shadows, 3 blush and 1 contour shade- lovely palette, amazing. I just never used the bold colours and then never used the palette. Have had this for 4 years.
Smashbox smokebox 6 shades- too dark for me. I used to use the black shadow a lot more for liner.
Estée Lauder blush palette- too dark for my complexion now.
W7 neutral eye palette- not used.
Urban decay setting powder- too orange for me now.
Smashbox contour- too orange for my skin tone, but a fantastic contour shade that lasted me for EVER.
Benefit – double brow. Just not easy for me to use, I am a beginner with drawing on brows.
Rimmel BB cream- did not like the formula
Maybelline velvet- Again did not like the formula and tried multiple times.
Milani blush- not very pigmented so ended up not using it.
Mascaras- out of date
NYX matte lip- felt very dry and used to feel crusty on my lips EWWW.
Rimmel lasting 25 hour powder foundation- only bought on holiday as waterproof and had sun protection but again not easy to use.
Collection, concealer- not my type of formula and just pulled at my skin.
