Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Diffused Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector

When there's a £10 off £40 spend at Space NK.... what else is a girl to do? Well actually, I thought I wasn't going to end up getting anything as the one thing I really wanted - the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders - were sold out but in a twist of fate it ended up that the offer got extended and the powders came back in stock. Yay!

After a great deal of deliberation and googling of reviews and swatches I ended up going for what by the end seemed to be the obvious choice with Diffused Light. It's described as a 'soft, warm, pale yellow that reduces redness and gives skin clarity'. All of the other options seemed to be either too dark or too shimmery; what I wanted was a powder that gave the skin a blurred, candlelit glow and Diffused Light seemed to be it. Now I have it in my hands I can attest that the product itself is absolutely stunning - just looking at it in the pan it's like no powder I've ever seen before with a slightly raised shape and an almost very subtle, barely detectable marbling effect that takes it to another level. And that's just the aesthetics of the thing. I'll be honest in that I've only used it once so far, partly out of fear of ruining it and partly because I feel like I don't have a good enough powder brush to do it justice - my usual mini Ecotools brush certainly doesn't. I'll report back on this once I've given it a good go and will be able to tell you whether it's worth the £38 price tag *winces*.

The powder being £38 I was only £2 off the offer and so instead of just buying something cheap (or as cheap as you can get at Space NK) I decided to just go for it and got that one product I've wanted to try for literally years but never got round to buying... we all have those kinds of products on our wishlists, right? Sometimes it just takes a 'to hell with it' moment and that moment for me came with the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl. This one has a bit of a cult status to say the least - it receives praise upon praise from beauty bloggers to makeup artists for achieving a truly glowing complexion without looking fake or overdone. I've tried it out by using it under foundation but that only masked the effect it gave, however it does work well over foundation along the cheekbones and down the nose. I think if you had perfect skin with no need for a base this would look amazing on its own applied sparingly. Again, I need to use it more before I can give an informed opinion but first impressions are very good and I reckon it's probably the best liquid highlighter I've used so far.

I know I certainly wasn't the only one who was overly excited by the prospect of £10 off at Space NK so do let me know if you also took advantage and got anything. I love reading about what other people buy although I am very easily influenced so it'll all just probably end up going onto my wishlist amongst about a billion other things...

Project: Grow Long Hair

7 comments
Grow-Long-Hair

I am a woman on a mission. And that mission is to grow my hair out to be long and healthy and beautiful. Well, maybe the latter part is wishful thinking but certainly the first two. A couple of years ago my hair was below boob length (accurate measurement) after spending a good while growing it and I ended up absolutely detesting how long and lank and damaged it was and got it cut to collarbone length with absolutely zero regrets. I loved it and declared I would never have long hair again. Two years on and after keeping it the same length and having one bad haircut too many I've done a 180 and now hate my short hair that has zero style, is still damaged and that goes in a triangle shape if I don't straighten it enough. Basically, it's a constant cycle of never being happy with my hair.

The deciding factor to start growing it out once and for all was flicking through old Facebook photos and seeing my hair all long and curled and I couldn't believe how pretty and feminine it looked. I miss it so much. The only way I managed to grow it to the first time round was by more or less completely ditching the straighteners save for special occasions (which is probably why I hated it so much) and getting the split ends trimmed regularly but still it wasn't in good condition - it constantly had knots in so bad that brushing my hair was nearly impossible and on more than one occasion the knots had to be literally cut out of my hair. 

So this time round I want to do things differently. My hair as it stands is split-end free thanks to pretty regular haircuts however it is still damaged. A good few months ago my hair all starting splitting off at the top of my head (to this day I have absolutely no idea why it happened) making it look a mess and thanks to overuse of straighteners a section at the front of my hair is really thinned out. Already I've cut down on heat - I'm letting my hair air dry where possible and trying to only straighten it when I have to (I've been to work a few times now with air-dryed, non-straightened hair and it isn't so bad). I've also started using heat protection consistently (nope, never used to use that regularly... I know) and am slathering on hair masks like they're going out of fashion - I'm currently using Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor and Macadamia Deep Repair Masque (which both smell incredible), again, they're something I'm ashamed to admit I wasn't using regularly before. I've even started taking skin, hair and nail supplements in the vain hope they might just do something. It's worth a shot, right?

In reality I know that for my hair to grow long and healthy I need to just look after it, it's that simple. No heat and lots and lots of moisture are what it needs. But if you do have any tips or tricks or product recommendations then please let me know as I'm all ears. I mean all I really want in life is Pineterest hair... a girl can dream, right?

The Best of the Best for Dry Skin

Dry Skin Products

To say I have dry skin would be an understatement; I've been plagued with really bad eczema/dermatitis on my hands and feet for a good few years now and it's only in the past few months that it's finally, finally started clearing up (touches all the wood). This means that for the first time in forever I've been able to put away the steroid creams and all the prescribed lotions and potions and can finally start pampering myself a little with something a bit more pleasant than Epaderm Ointment (as much as it's been my absolute saviour - srsly, praise be to Epaderm). Of course my skin is still very dry - always has been always will be - and so I need to continue to use very moisturising products, they can just be a little nicer than the un-scented, un-coloured, un-everything products I've been using for the past few years.

FACE
While the skin on my face has always been dry it has very thankfully never been afflicted with eczema, but it's still in such a condition that I must use really highly moisturising products to keep it in a somewhat normal state. My daily moisturiser of choice is my HG Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream which has now sadly disappeared off the shelves of my local Boots so I have to order it off Amazon, but that's ok. If you have dry/really dry skin you need Oilatum in your life - it's heavy duty stuff so it's thick (but not too thick) and takes a good while to sink in which would have some people running for the hills but it's exactly what my skin needs. The only other moisturisers apart from Oilatum that I've used and loved and that have given my skin the level of moisture it needs are the Eucerin Even Brighter Day Cream* and Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream but sadly both are very expensive and a bit out of my price range for a moisturiser (the Kiehl's was a massive splurge in King's Cross one time).

While I've been using Oilatum for years the Organic Surge Replenishing Facial Oil* is a very new addition but has very quickly cemented its place in my routine. I just love using oils on my skin at night and this one from Organic Surge is the nicest I've come across to date; it soothing, feels light and sinks in more quickly than say the Trilogy Rosehip Oil (but not hugely quickly, it is still an oil after all) and gives my skin the moisture and hydration it needs after cleansing. It's jam-packed with stuff like Safflower Seed Oil, Argan Oil (fourth ingredient(!)), Lavender Oil... basically all of the oils, and I love that.

BODY, HANDS & FEET
I'm so happy to say that I've finally, for the first time in years been able to ditch the prescribed products for eczema, although actually I stopped used Dermovate, an incredibly potent steroid ointment quite a long time ago and I'm sure it's no coincidence that since then my skin has cleared up... but that's a story for another time. I still use my hydrocortisone creams from time to time when a patch of eczema springs up but on the whole my skin is 1000x better than it was this time last year and I can't tell you how happy that makes me.

If my skin is feeling particularly dry but but not yet at the eczema stage I'll try and stop it in its tracks and for the past couple of months have been using the Weleda Skin Food* which is a thick, rich cream that's particularly good for really rough areas like the hands, feet and elbows, the latter being where I use it most. It's an all-natural product made up of Sunflower Seed Oil, Lanolin, Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, Chamomile... all of the good stuff, basically. It's hailed as a bit of a miracle cream and while I haven't seen miracle-like results quite yet it is very good at protecting and healing the skin. A lot of people use it on their face and I've heard it heals blemishes, helps reduce scarring, all sorts of claims. I personally haven't used it on my face yet but I'm so going to - it is very thick but warmed up in the hands and then patted on I think it could be amazing. I'll report back on that one.

While I have always gotten eczema on my body it was my hands and feet that were really, really bad for a few years (I can't really emphasise that enough, I should probably do a post on it) but for some reason it's all cleared up and I no longer have to slather on Epaderm like it's going out of fashion and wear white Michael Jackson-style gloves near enough constantly, hooray! My skin is still dry and I don't want it to come creeping back so I'm keeping on top of things with products that are a whole lot more pleasant than what I've had to use in the past. I'd never tried Burt's Bees until I got a gift set for Christmas and I've been so impressed with everything I've tried, especially the lipbalm, hand cream and foot cream. The Almond & Milk Hand Cream is less of a cream and more of a balm; it's thick and takes a while to sink in so it's one you need to wear cotton gloves with but the result is super soft, moisturised, marzipan-smelling hands... yum. The Coconut Foot Cream is not at all like a cream either; it's a gloopy gel that turns into an oil when you start massaging it in although it does seem to sink in quite quickly (socks are still a must) and it smells of peppermint with a hint of coconut. Again, delicious.

You might think it's silly of me to use all these scented products but when I had patch test the only irritants that were flagged up were those in line with atopic eczema. Besides, I can't tell you how nice it is to finally be able to use non-medicinal products and pamper myself a little.

Urban Decay Naked On The Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On The Run Palette
Urban Decay Naked On The Run Palette


What do you do when you have a Debenhams voucher that's been burning a hole in your pocket for far too long? Well me, I made the rather frivolous purchase that is the Urban Decay Naked On The Run palette, not a necessity by any means but really, what else are gift vouchers for?

The Naked On The Run palette is one of those everything you need in one place kind of deals and usually I have pretty much no interest in them (I generally find them a bit... rubbish, for lack of a better description) but when I saw this particular one I was attracted to it like a magpie to shiny things and kept going back to it and looking at it until I knew I had to make the purchase. What attracted me most (apart from the packaging, seriously it's so gorgeous) was the fact that everything is very neutral; there's no crazy eyeshadow colours or shade of eyeliner that you'd never in a million years wear, instead it's all very wearable and very much follows the who Naked ethos - bravo, Urban Decay.

Inside the rose gold casing (*swoon*) you'll find a mascara, eyeliner, lipgloss, six eyeshadows, a blusher, a bronzer and a huge mirror in the lid to top it all off - that's a whole lot of makeup right there. As you come to expect from Urban Decay the eyeshadows are all very good quality and the colours are all so gorgeous. There's Dive, a very shimmery/leaning towards glittery (but not in a bad way) rose pink/peachy colour, Fix, a light matte brown, Resist, a sheeny browny taupe, Dare, a darker matte brown, Stun, a shimmering chocolate brown and finally 5050, a very light peachy shade with a very subtle sheen to it. There's not a single colour in there that I wouldn't be happy to wear - the sign of a very well curated collection of shades.

As for the other two powder products, well, we all know of my undying love for Soap & Glory Solar Powder and for cream blushers in general so although I have tried out the bronzer and blusher in the palette I haven't been using them consistently. The matte bronzer is definitely on the warmer side although it is fairly light so I can still use it on my pale, cool skin without it clashing. The lightly shimmering blusher with its bright pink colour and blue undertones, however, is perfect for my colouring and although my love for cream blush is neverending I would be more than happy to use it if I had to work solely from the contents of the palette.

The remaining products included are a mascara, eyeliner and lipgloss. Now I'm not a huge lipgloss fan but when the formula is done right - no gloop, no stickiness (I'm thinking Nars Turkish Delight) - I can love them. Sesso is quite a dark pinky shade with very subtle shimmer (it reminds me a bit of MAC Syrup) that's not too far removed from my natural lip colour and gives high gloss with minimal stickiness - tick, tick, tick.

The eyeliner in Stag is a dark brown and can I just say thank you, thank you, thank you Urban Decay for not including a black eyeliner. I've lost count of how many black pencil eyeliners I have and that's without buying a single one as they're always given away as freebies and included in these types of sets. Plus, I much prefer wearing brown on my waterline and lower lash line as it always looks much more flattering and forgiving. I'd never actually tried the famous 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils before this one but I get the hype because they are seriously creamy and pigmented although I do think that nowadays there's a lot out there  - and cheaper, too - to rival Urban Decay's.

Finally we have the Perversion mascara and oh buy I love this stuff. It has a traditional bristle brush and the formula is super black and super-duper creamy, creamier than any mascara I've used before. When I first tried it I felt a bit 'meh' because it didn't curl my lashes very well and didn't add much length or separation but when I tried it over my Seventeen Falsifeye HD mascara great things happened. It adds so much volume and thickness without becoming clumpy, gives the blackest of black lashes and because it's so creamy it never goes crispy or flaky. It's probably the standout discovery of the whole palette for me (aside from the beautiful eyeshadows).

In all, I'd say the Urban Decay Naked On The Run palette is very well rounded and is one I can genuinely see myself taking with me on my travels and using everything in it - it could only be made better if it was a bit slimmer as then it would be truly travel-friendly. At £37 I'd say it's a pretty fair price when you consider everything you're getting and the fact that the quality of everything is up there as you expect from Urban Decay. In writing this post I've learned that the palette is actually limited edition, it was released around December I believe and given that we're now in April I'm not sure how much longer it'll be around for so if you want it you're probably best off picking it up sooner rather than later. Having said that it's not sold out anywhere and it's been around a lot longer than most limited edition products are so it doesn't seem to be hugely coveted... can you imagine the carnage if Urban Decay brought out a limited edition Naked palette? Eek!

Palettes, Palettes, Palettes: Revisited

Palette Revisited Paletted Revisited

I don't know what's up with me lately but I can't seem to stop myself from rifling through all of my makeup, pulling bits out and adding them to my dressing table drawer (which is where all of my 'in use' makeup goes). It's not a bad thing, obviously, and gives me the feeling and satisfaction of buying something new (ok it's not quite the same) without actually spending any money. Eyeshadow palettes in particular catch my eye the most when shopping my stash as they are without a doubt my makeup weakness and so after getting them all back out again and back into use (or at least that's the intention) I thought it was time I done an updated look at my palette collection, my last post on the subject being back in July where in that time I've acquired another five. Not too bad going... right?

Let's begin with the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, one that I initially thought I didn't need but, well, I bought it anyway because you gotta keep that Naked palette collection going. As it turns out I really love it as the rosy tones are just utterly gorgeous and exactly to my taste. My most used shades are the not-quite-shimmer not-quite-matte (...satin?) Strange for on the lid (the lightest shade at the far left) and Limit and Nooner through the crease which are the lighter and darker matte mauvey-purple colours. The lighter non-matte colours are all a little bit too glittery for daytime wear but on my birthday a few weeks ago I went for it and wore Dust, Buzz and Nooner (if I remember rightly) and it was all very rose-toned and different from what I usually wear but I loved it. This palette definitely isn't for everyone as I know the colour scheme can be hard to pull off but if you can pull them off then it can look amazing.

By far the cheapest of the lot is the L'Oreal La Palette Nude in Rose and yet it's the one I reach for pretty much every single day. It's another one that's rose themed with lilacs and purples and pinks and I'm sure it's no coincidence that the two matte mauvey-purple colours are very similar to the two in Naked 3 and along with the shimmery, off-white on the far left they are by far my most worn, in fact they're the only colours I really use in the whole palette. I've seen the palette get bashed on a bit for the mattes not being overly pigmented and sure, they're not as pigmented as the mattes from the Naked 3 but sometimes you just don't need that and in fact the reason I reach for it everyday is because the shades give enough colour without being OTT. Sometimes, just sometimes you don't need mega pigmentation.

There's just gotta be some Nars, hasn't there? With this particular Nars palette I did that thing where I was all, 'nah, I don't need that limited edition palette' then it sells out and then I realise how badly I want it, probably purely because of the fact it's no longer available. Logic. Luckily I found the Fairy's Kiss palette in a blog sale for super cheap so I made it mine and added it to my ever-growing collection of all things Nars. It's another purple-toned palette (sensing a theme here?) with six buttery soft shades made up of three lighter and three darker colours, and actually I'm wearing top left shade Manosque as I type this and it reminds me of a slightly darker version of MAC Painterly. In all honesty I don't reach for this palette a huge amount simply because I favour the colours more in other palettes but that's not to say it isn't still totally gorgeous.

And here we have another purple palette in the form the the Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp quad. I knew I loved purples on the eyes but I definitely didn't realise my magpie-like attraction to them until putting this post together. The Vintage Vamp is the most full-on of the lot with a shimmery pink, a potent glittery gold, a burgundy reddy-purple and a deep purple - I'd say it's one you need some guts to pull off although I did wear it a lot more subtly in my Valentine's Makeup post and it worked really well. The quality of Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadows seems to be unrivaled although in my quad the top left shade has always been quite difficult to work with - almost like it has a coating over it and I need to scratch at it to release the pigment - but other than that's it's fabulous. At the minute I'm eagerly awaiting the delivery of The Uptown Girl (an exchange after my boyfriend inadvertently bought me The Vintage Vamp twice... bless him)... and I've just realised it's yet another purple one. I think I need to calm it down a bit.

Last but not least is a totally neutral one, hooray! I don't get a lot of use out of the Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 for myself but for my kit for weddings etc. the all-matte shades come in really handy especially for people who don't tend to wear a lot of makeup and want something that's quite subtle. I especially like the fourth shade in, Cover, a more warm brown which I find is really flattering on a lot of people and blends really well. It's not a palette that gets me excited by any means but it's very practical and everyone needs those not-so-exciting but functional products, you know?

So that rounds up my palette hoarding since July last year. Not gonna lie, in the middle of writing this post I got the Zoeva Rose Golden palette and as I said am waiting for the Charlotte Tilbury Uptown Girl. Who knows how many more palettes I will have in another eight months.... eek!

March Favourites

March Favourites

March saw me getting a whole load of new makeup and skincare, some of it sent to me and some of it  bought myself *cough*CharlotteTilbury*cough*, I like to really thoroughly try things out before I feature them on the blog though and so most of it probably won't be making an appearance for a while. I have discovered some fantastic products this month still and there's also one product that's a result of 'shopping the stash', something I'm finding myself doing a lot lately and it's really very satisfying.

First up is the 'rediscovery' shall we call it and that is the Dior Diorblush Cheek Creme in Capri. It was a toss up between this and the Topshop Cream Blush in Afternoon Tea but it's definitely Dior that I've been wearing for the majority of the month. I bought it a good couple of years ago, wore it non-stop and then it sort of slowly disappeared into my mass of other blushers, only to have it resurface recently and I'm so glad it did. It's unlike any other blusher I've used before; it's like a solid sort of gummy thing that gives a powder finish but because it's not actually a powder doesn't leave the skin looking flat. The colour Capri is a light, brightening pink with minuscule silver shimmer which gives a bit of glow - love.

For months now I've been using the Collection Fast Stroke  eyeliner but it's finally starting to run out and while I do love it my one gripe with it is that it's so liquidy that it gets all over my eyelashes everytime I apply it. I've now moved onto a pen liner from MeMeMe called the Eye Sweep Precision Eye Definer* and I'm really very impressed. There's something about the controlled formula (there's no excess liquid spilling out like some eyeliner pens) coupled with the shape of the nib that makes it incredibly easy to create a really precise, fluid line with no skipping. It's definitely not as long lasting as the Collection liner and it'll be interesting to see how long it lasts before it starts drying up (the one downside of pen liners) but for now it's doing a very good job.

After using the Urban Decay Primer Potion as my sole eyeshadow primer for literally years on end the Nars Smudgeprood Eyeshadow Base recently came into my life and oh how I'm glad it did. It has the exact same crease-proof power as Primer Potion but it's so much lighter and really silicone-y so glides onto the lids making blending eyeshadows on top of it really easy, something I sometimes found difficult with the Primer Potion. It does still have its downsides though (the price, for one) but  instead of parroting on and repeating them I'll direct you to my comparison post of the two here.

Finally there's the one and only skincare product which is the Organic Surge Replenishing Facial Oil*. Just a couple of drops keeps my skin moisturised and nourished but what I love most is how light it feels and how it sinks in relatively quickly compared to my other oils meaning I'm not left with a greasy face for hours on end. It's packed with ingredients like Argan Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, Sunflower Oil, Bergamot Fruit Oil... it's basically a dry-skinned person's dream and is an absolute treat to apply at night post-cleansing to pack some much needed moisture back into my skin.

So that concludes my favourites of this month, like I said I've been trying out a whole load of new stuff recently including skincare and so that'll all be making its way onto the blog (slowly, we all know how long skincare takes to try out) and hopefully even into the coming monthly favourites posts.

10 Under £10

10 Under £10

It's time for round three of 10 under £10 (see round one and two) in which I showcase some of my favorite affordable beauty products that I've discovered in recent times.

I've never really been one for contouring on myself but I'm slowly - very slowly - getting more and more into it. I do now have the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow in my life which you'd think would entirely negate the need for a cheapo sculpting product but Bronze & Glow is more of a bridge between a contour and bronzer than a straight up contour. Seventeen are one of my absolute favourite affordable brands and this little duo is really rather good - ok so the contour side does have a little bit of warmth to it but it is completely matte and the formula spot on. The highlight side is actually matte too which I find a little weird but actually it works well as a brightening powder through the t-zone. I've recently ordered the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush which looks awesome and I'm hoping the two will be a match made in heaven.

Trust the hype on this mascara because it is seriously good. Despite the name while I find it adds some volume on initial application it's not really one you can keep building up with and layering. But the thick plastic wand grabs every lash, the formula lengthens well and it is fantastic at holding a curl which is always my number one criteria in a mascara. Plus, I've had it around four months and it still hasn't dried out so it gets massive brownies points.

Zoeva 317 Wing Liner Brush £5.95
I'm pretty anal about my eyebrows being perfect and for that the perfect brush is needed. It has to be quite thin and the bristles cut perfectly in order to get the definition I want, remotely fluffy brushes need not go anywhere near my brows. The Wing Liner is fab and although not specifically made with brows in mind is the best brush I've found for them to date. I've also just ordered the Zoeva 322 Brow Line Brush which is a lot shorter and thicker to see how it compares, I shall report back in due course.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19
I kind of need to eat my words because admittedly I've bashed on this concealer a bit in the past - I just didn't think it was all that great and didn't get the hype. But when my second tube of Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer bit the dust I had to dive into my collection for a suitable alternative and this came up trumps. It's far from a dupe - the Nars concealer is much, much creamier and a pleasure to apply but in terms of coverage and lasting power they're both great. Plus it gets points for being available in a shade that's genuinely pale - bravo, Collection.

I've become nothing short of a lip liner fiend and while MAC's lip pencils will always be my absolute favourite for an affordable option this one from Rimmel is really good. It's really creamy, pigmented and the colour Eastend Snob is a perfect soft pink that isn't too much on the light side and looks equally pretty worn alone as it does with a colour over the top. I love pairing it with the Bourjois Colour Boost in Proudly Naked and MAC Faux for a more satin finish. I've heard people tout this as a dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk but Pillow Talk has more of a peach tone to it and actually, I prefer Eastend Snob. So there ya go.

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 05 Rosy Brown £6.90
I seem to have inadvertently accumulated an awful lot of shadow sticks recently and so dug out this Kiko one to see how they all compare. Given the price it actually beats out a lot of the more expensive ones for having a creamier, non-budging formula and the colour is just to so pretty. When I first swatched it in the shop I instantly thought 'By Terry Ombre Backstar Misty Rock dupe alert' and after some googling realised I wasn't alone in that thought. I very nearly splashed out on Misty Rock but after finding a dupe at a quarter of the price I'm very, very glad I didn't.

We all know how much I love the Colour Boosts and Proudly Naked which has recently been added to the line is another triumph. If no-fuss, throw on and go lip products are your thing you'll love the glossy wash of pink that this gives that's subtle but not too subtle. I happily wear it alone on my lazing about days and over lip liner on my 'doing stuff' days and it works equally as well for both.

Topshop Cream Blush in Afternoon Tea £7.00
I realise it looks like I basically haven't used this blusher but trust me I have, it's just so damn pigmented that I've barely scratched the surface. Afternoon Tea is the most beautifully brightening pink colour and while I'm not usually a big fan of cream to powder blush formulas I've found it perfect for a work day (especially at ridiculously early in the morning) as just the smallest amount  on a stippling brush adds an instant pop of colour and lasts all day long.

Maybelline Colour Drama in Keep It Classy £4.99
A dupe for the Nars lip pencils these are not (they don't have the same velvety formula) but they stand out on their own all the same. The Maybelline lip pencils are creamy and seriously pigmented and the colour Keep It Classy is a deep, pinky plum that can be patted on for a pink stain or swiped on for a full on colour.

This stuff has been around for donkeys years, as in, I used to use it back in my school days (at least nine years ago, eek) then recently made a repurchase. Oh the nostalgia. This stuff is inky black and lasts better than any other liquid liner I've ever used. The short, stubby brush can take a bit of getting used to and the formula is very liquidy so goes all over my lashes but for the results it's worth it. And it's £2.99. Srsly.
