I’m sure by now we’ve all heard of magnetic false eyelashes (I’m constantly seeing videos popping up on Facebook 😂), I ended up buying some off eBay for £5 and they were a complete waste of money!
However I’m prepared to eat my words as my younger sister purchased some magnetic eyelashes from a brand called Ardell which retailer at £13.99.
At first I thought she was being robbed but once I saw them on her I immediately purchased my own set 😂🙈.
I ordered the eyelashes in Accents 002 from Boots and they arrived pretty fast. During the application process you need to apply the upper lash band on top of your lash line.
Once the upper lash is in place you then need to apply the under lashes so that your natural lashes are in between both layers and you’ll know once you got them in the right place as you’ll feel the magnets clip.
Here’s how the lashes looked on me:
I love love love these eyelashes they literally took me a minute to apply and they look stunning! I suppose £13.99 is quite pricey for a pair of eyelashes but these are reusable so you are defiantly getting your money’s worth.
Also when taking the lashes off you just need to slide them outwards and viola they are off within seconds whilst being absolutely pain free!
I can’t recommend these eyelashes enough as I can’t think of an easier way to apply false eyelashes within minutes. I’m going to be wearing these all the time now I’m obsessed with how lush they look!
Go grab yourself a pair you won’t regret it.
Ever since I purchased the I Heart London Surprise Egg yesterday from Superdrug I’ve been dying to swatch it for you guys :).
Makeup Revolution have come up with the best idea by combing Easter eggs and makeup together.
There are six eggs to collect retailing at £5 with each egg containing five eyeshadows and two highlighting shades.
* However as these eggs have just launched Superdrug have a special offer on where you can buy 3 eggs for the price of 2!*
I chose the Rose Gold eggs and for £5 it’s a pretty decent size. I love the fact you have a highlighter and eyeshadows all in one product which is great for saving space in your makeup bag!
I think the shades in this egg are so beautiful and there is a lovely range of light-dark pink shades.
Before I share my thoughts on the eyeshadows here is my swatch of the two highlighters.
The shades above are really pigmented and like the fact they look quite natural which allows you to build up until you reach your desired glow. However, i felt the formula could’ve been better as it initially felt creamy but then when I was swatching the product it was quite crumbly.
Here is my swatch of the eyeshadows:
I love the shimmer shades as they are so pigmented and so pretty 😍. I felt the matte shade (the last one in the photo above) lacked pigment and wasn’t great at all. I would’ve liked to have seen another matte shade in the egg but after swatching the one shade already I don’t rate it at all.
However, the shimmer shades are so stunning and have a creamy but powdery feel to them. They swatched beautifully and I can’t wait to use them on my eyes 😍.
Overall I would defiantly recommend the I Heart London Surprise Eggs as I think you wouldn’t get anything better then this for only £5. I’m defiantly going to get some more as they are perfect for traveling around.
I’ve been so slack recently with posting reviews as I literally go two weeks without posting anything and then all of a sudden I’m chucking the reviews out like there is no tomorrow 😂🙈.
Anyway enough of my babbling for now, a few weeks ago I brought one of Kylie Cosmetics new velvet lipsticks. The four new velvet shades are:
Each shade retails for $16 each and can still be purchased on Kylie Cosmetics. I only ended up buying the shade Vibe as I felt the other shades were too similar to other lipsticks in my collection.
The shade Vibe is a mid tone burnt orange, here is my swatch:
I like the shade don’t get me wrong but I’m seriously kicking myself as I have so many lipsticks identical to this one and now I wish I brought the shade Mood instead 😫.
However just because I chose the wrong shade it doesn’t mean the lipstick I did buy is crap! I love the amount of pigment Vibe has and the formula is literally to die for.
Like I’ve said in so many blog posts now Kylie’s velvet formula is my all time favourite and I love hydrating it feels on my lips which is a nice change from matte lipsticks!
So me and my sister decided to trade lipsticks as we both purchased double of everything when it came to Jeffree Star’s 2017 Holiday Collection. I ended giving my sister Nathan and she then gave me Allegedly which is a lip ammunition.
Allegedly is a terracotta coral with a satin finish and it retails for $18!
I’m so obsessed with the packaging from Jeffree’s holiday collection as it’s so pretty but it’s just a shame the photo doesn’t do it justice as it’s so sparkly in person.
Anyway here is my swatch:
To be honest I don’t mind this shade but I wouldn’t go and say it’s a firm favourite. I found the formula a bit patchy and I have to go over my swatch several times to get proper pigment.
Normally I don’t mind the lip ammunition’s as I’ve have several other shades and I can honestly say I’ve had no problems with the formula or even pigment!
On this occasion I don’t recommend this lipstick shade as it wasn’t consistent compared to the other shades and I’m not a huge lover of this colour too!
I’m so excited to share my KKW Beauty Contour dupe that I accidentally stumbled across in Primark of places 😂! The set is from a new collection called Nudes and it’s such a fabulous low budget collection 😍💜.
The highlight and contour set retails for £8 in Primark unlike KKW’s Kit which retails for $48 and that’s not even including international shipping fees, plus customs 😫!
First look at the set I think it’s a size and I love the baby pink/nude packaging I think it’s super cute. The set includes:
- A brow highlighter
- A creme Contour duo
- A creme Contour highlighter duo
- A brush
As you can see you don’t get a lot of product in the duos which is the same with the KKW contour kit but then again your only paying £8 for this Set so what do you expect?!
Before I go into detail about the formula check out my swatches:
First off the formula isn’t bad at and it feels really creamy plus it’s really pigmented too!
I’m not keen on the highlighter duo as the lighter shade is too orange for my skin tone and it really doesn’t suit me. Also another negative for me is that I found the contour duo shades way too dark for me personally I managed to use the slightly lighter shade but it just took a bit longer to blend out 🙈.
I love the highlighters in this set though as they are subtle but buildable if you fancy glowing from space 😂.
Another positive about the set is the brush is actually pretty decent for such a cheap product. The bristles don’t feel cheap and it blends out the product perfectly :). However the beauty blender end isn’t the best as when you are blending out the product it doesn’t feel very secure on the handle :/.
Here is how my makeup look after using the contour kit (quick disclaimer I’m not the best at contouring I’m still learning 😂):
Overall I defiantly recommend purchasing this kit even if you don’t want it as a KKW dupe. The kit is great value for money and performs really well I just wish the range had more contour and creme highlighting shades :/.
However, in my opinion this is the perfect dupe for the KKW contour kit and if you fancy saving some £££ then this is the set for you!
Recently I’ve been really obsessed with highlighting palettes and after falling in love with the Solstice palette by Sleek Makeup I couldn’t resist buying Cleopatra’s Kiss 💋.
Cleopatra’s Kiss retails at £9.99 but it’s currently on offer at Superdrug for £4.90 so be quick and grab a bargain whilst you can!
The palette contains a mini brush, two baked powdered highlighters and two luxurious cream highlighters that are a mix of nude/gold bronze shades.
As you can see the highlighters are full of pigment and they look so pretty 😍👍🏼. I love these shades so much as I think the gold and bronze shades will really compliment your skin in the summer.
Also, if you are someone who really likes to pack a punch when highlighting then apply the cream shades to the desired area first and then go over with the powder shades (trust me the results are blinding 😂)!
Overall I think the palette is a must have as it’s quite small meaning it’s easy to travel around with and I actually think it’s better then Huda Beauty’s 3d highlighting kits which retails at £40 😫🙈.
I’m sure by now you’ve all heard about Ciate London’s glitter flip lipsticks?! So many well known beauty bloggers have reviewed and loved these dazzling beauties, since the huge success of the lipsticks Ciate London have released six new shades 😍.
The six new shades are:
Each shade retails for £17 and can be purchased on Ciate London‘s website.
I only purchased three lipsticks from the new spring collection as I have way too many lipsticks and I never end up using half of them 🙈. The shades I purchased were:
- Whisper- this is a mink taupe shade with multi-dimensional gold glitter.
- Trouble- this is a coral shade with a true gold glitter.
- Chaos- this is a rustic brown shade that has shimmering spectrum of glitter.
I’m not going to go into masses of detail about how these lipsticks performed as I’ve already had them before ( you can see the review on https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/seldane.wordpress.com/2017/11/20/ciate-london-glitter-flip-✨/amp/ ) and I personally think they are great so this is just a swatch the showcase the new shades.
Anyway here is my swatch:
I love love all the shades I think they are absolutely stunning! I feel like the formula has changed slightly as the shades have more pigment and they have a better consistency.
I’m obsessed with how the Ciate London lipsticks magically transforms into sparkling glitter on your lips as well as it being a matte lipstick too!
I can’t recommend these lipsticks enough especially if your are obsessed with anything that sparkles then these lipsticks are a must have in your collection 😍.
