Makeup and Skincare Reviews // New In

We all love a makeup review or seven right? These are products I've had from around Christmas time and have stood out to me! I thought I'd write reviews for you all to hear my opinions on these products and maybe even persuade one or two of you to jump on the bandwagon! I've got mascaras, lipsticks, highlighters, concealers and a few Korres products here to show you! Let's get on with the reviews!

ASOS Magazines really do brighten up my day! In love with the watermelon cut out dress! Head over to for your copy!

Avon SuperShock Mascara

The wand of this mascara is super thick with quite small plastic bristles. This makes it easier to coat every lash with lashings of mascara! The thickness of the wand plumps up the volume of my lashes to the maximum. The formula itself, is quite liquidy but not as wet as the Maybelline the Rocket mascara. I've only been using this mascara for about two weeks and I am loving the look it gives!

MAC Select Cover Up Concealer

This was a treat to myself in January. The amount of concealer you get (10ml) is a lot of product, and I don't mind paying the £15 for it because of this. I wear the shade NW20 just in case you're wondering. The formula of the concealer is quite runny and liquid. It's by no means as creamy as the Lasting Perfection Collection Concealer, which I was previously using. However, once this concealer sets, it does NOT move. For that I am grateful. It's wonderful. I've heard people describe it as a sheer concealer but I would completely disagree with that statement. It's runny yeah, but the product covers so well. I have really red and irritated skin, and the concealer covers up my Rudolf the Reindeer nose perfectly. Also, when applied throughout the day, it does not cake and hardly needs to be touched up at all!

Rimmel Lipstick

I bought this lipstick on a whim if I'm honest. I just wanted a new red lipstick as it was my birthday. The lipstick applies very smoothly and runs over any dry skin almost velvety. It's moisturizing yet has amazing coverage! I think this is my favourite highstreet/drugstore lipstick I've ever tried (trust me, I've tried many!) The staying power isn't great but it doesn't kill to just apply throughout the day/night! I also love the purple packaging!

Korres Gift Set

I have been dying to try any products from the Korres brand since I heard Kate from Ghost Parties talk about the brand in one of her videos. I had a gift set for Christmas and have been trying out four of the products since. I loved the hand cream, body moisturiser and the tinted lip balm, however the face cream did not go hand in hand with my skin unfortunately! I loved the texture of it and it had SPF! But the rose ingredients made my skin break out and I had to stop using it!

Seventeen Cheek Stamp

First of all the packaging sold me. Completely. The reality of stamping the product onto your cheeks isn't so great.... But the product is lovely! It's a powder blush, but I find it buttery and easy to blend. I usually apply two stamps onto my cheeks and then take a brush and blend blend blend. Not too expensive either which can only be an advantage.

Avon Glimmersticks

I have two different formulas of these! The first one is from the original line and is in the shade Saturn Grey. I thought I'd try this out as it is less harsh than a black eyeliner. It applies well and is perfect for a smokey eye! The second one I have is from the Diamonds range and is in the colour Sugar Plum. Oh my gosh, this may be my favourite thing ever! If I ever want to create a stand out from the crowd look, I choose this! It's super sparkly and looks great in photos! Like the other glimmerstick, it's creamy and create a lovely smudged and smokey effect!

Revlon Eye Brightener and Primer

I bought this when I was running out of my Urban Decay Primer Potion, and couldn't justify spending that much on an eye primer again! It was 3 for 2 in Boots so this was my free product! I love it. I never thought I could fall in love with a product like this but I have. I don't think I could go a day without this! It can be used as a highlighter as well and I wear it to prime my eyelids and also highlight my cheekbones and cupids bow! The primer holds eyeshadow almost the same as the Primer Potion and is a fraction of the price. Snaps for Revlon!
