So back in January this year, I decided to write a little list of products I wanted to try through the year.
Five months on I decided to revisit this list and look at which of those products I had tried...and hey why not make it into a blog post?
So here it is, my original list, its progress five months on and a mini review of the products I have tried. Enjoy.....
Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara
Revlon Colour Stain Moisture Stay Lip Gloss
Sleek Lip Liners
The Original Naked Pallette
Zoeve Make-up Brushes
Tanya Burr Lipgloss
So as you can see I've only managed to try out three of my original list, for no particular reason apart from every time I go to buy new make-up I forget I have this list!
I wear: Ultra Black, Waterproof
Everyone and their dog will have heard about the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer by now, but a product which I don't think gets enough hype is their Does It All Mascara.
As a huge fan of the concealer, when I heard good reviews about this mascara I just had to try it out. Needless to say it did not disappoint, I would definitely recommend this to those people who prefer to use mascaras which give you a more dramatic eyelash look because this isn't a very natural product.
As a heavy eye-make up wearer, this is a perfect 'budget' mascara which you can get hold of really easily in the UK. It also comes in a non-waterproof formula if that is what you prefer, but when a mascara of this quality retails at £4.99 there would be no reason for you not to try it out!
Rimmel London - Wake Me Up Concealer
I wear: Ivory
This is another product which has been raved about by every beauty fanatic on the internet, but personally I would describe it as average. Generally I prefer concealers which have a higher coverage (like the Collection Lasting Perfection) and this one didn't really have as high coverage as I would like.
One of my skin issues is having frequent breakouts, I didn't feel comfortable using this to cover the problem areas purely because its quite a brightening concealer and so would probably attract the eye to the area I was trying to cover. But I do feel it is a nice concealer for under the eyes.
Rimmel London - Match Perfection Foundation
I wear: 100 Ivory
I have always been a huge lover of Rimmel foundations and this one was no different, I tend to switch up between this foundation and a Maybelline BB Cream on a day to day basis, but the Rimmel foundation is one I would definitely buy again.
Its affordable and generally a lovely consistency to buff into my skin. I find it has a fairly dewy finish and so I always set it with a translucent powder but all round a perfect foundation for those on a budget.
Thank you so much for reading and as always comments and suggestions are always welcomed!
