REVIEW: Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer by Rimmel

I just thought I’d do a quick review on this eye primer. I found it on Asos on sale for $7 or something, which is a very good deal for a primer. I don’t normally use primers because my lids are not too oily, so eyeshadow usually stays pretty well on me. However, I am a massive Rimmel fan, so I was super excited to try out this product. I must say, I was disappointed by it – it doesn’t do what it says on the bottle. It doesn’t make eyeshadow appear more pigmented, but it makes it crease! So if you want a good eyeshadow primer, better get the one from Urban Decay, I know it’s on the pricey side, but at least it works.
Or you can just get Color Tattoo eyeshadows from Maybelline. They are creamy, so they look fine on their own, but they also work great as a primer.
Hope this helped

Hi ladies!!!

I am sorry for not posting for a while. Frankly speaking, I wasn’t quite in a mood to blog 😦

But today, since the spring is finally here, I wanted to do a quick post about a couple of items.

My aunt gave me this lovely necklace a couple of weeks ago and I love it soooooooo much!!!!! It’s fab! I love the combo of gold, crystals, spikes and black detailing. Although it looks like a statement necklace, it’s really versatile. I am sure I am going to wear it a lot during the spring time. It looks gorgeous with jumpers, shirts (luv it with my denim shirt so much), loose t-shirts and dresses.

Another item, I wanted to tell you guys, is the new L’oreal mascara. The moment I saw the commercial with amazing and talented Eva Longoria, I new I had to have that mascara 🙂

Wait, have I mentioned I got the coolest grandma ever?)) She gave me this mascara and a new L’oreal eye liner (I am not sure if it just came out, I just haven’t seen it before). I haven’t told her anything, she just somehow knew I wanted it. Apparently, my makeup obsession is not a secret to anyone lol 🙂

I really like the mascara – the quality, the brush, just everything about it is amazing. However I don’t see how it’s better than all the other L’oreal mascaras. They are all perfect to me. BTW I seem to be the only person, who hates Maybelline mascaras, especially falsies! I know, so many people love it. I guess it just didn’t work for me. So I am definitely more a L’oreal mascara person.

The eye liner is fine. I mean I am not a huge fan of it’s tip/brush, whatever you like to call it. I think it should be  thinner. Anyway, I always use a separate brush to apply my eyeliner, so it’s fine with me.

Have you guys tried any of these products? What do you think? What’s your favourite mascara, eyeliner?

Hey guys,

Remember I promised you, I’d do a review on my Prime Time Oil Control primer from BareMinerals? Finally, I am ready to do it. I’ve had it for at least 1 month now, I think.

I would like to start with the packaging. Some people might think it’s boring, but for me, this kind of packaging ( simple and ‘serious’) is an indicator of a good product. I mean, we all love cute little boxes and bottles, but this is the case when you expect alot from a product, that looks very… mmm ‘professional’, I’d say.

This is the first product from BareMinerals, I’ve owned, and I’ve been pretty excited about using it. I tried it with different fondations. It didn’t break me out, but it definitely didn’t make my oily skin look matte. It’s VERY moisturising!!!!! The bottle should have said ‘super moisturising for dry skin’ instead of ‘oil control’. And for around 20 GBP I am pretty upset with the product.

Honestly, my foundation looks more fresh without this primer.

If you have combination skin, it might work for you, but for those with oily skin (like mine), don’t waste your money. Instead, I suggest getting Urban Decay’s De Slick Setting Spray. I got their XL version of this product for $20 and I am happy with it. Works great with Maybelline 24H foundation and Rimmel’s Stay Matte foundation.

What is your favourite primer or foundation?

I don’t have enough words to express how much I love this gorgeous Paul’s Boutique handbag. It has crystal, dollar and crown print on it. And obviously, this charm is super adorable. But this is just a small preview – I am going to talk about this beauty and other clothing and accessories I got lately (some of them were my B-day presents) in my next post.

But today I woud like to show you pictures of my recent makeup purchases.

Image

OMG you guys) this nailpolish from Sally Hansen (it’s in color 05 Be-Jeweled btw) is the best glittery thing I have ever had. It looks like diamonds/cosmic print to me. I love how edgy it looks on my short nails. I applied one coat of Rimmel’s Blackout, then I put one coat of this glittery SH product. But the next day i thought, I’d try putting third coat. First, I wasn’t sure, it would dry, because i had so much nailpolish on my nails but it did, and pretty fast too. Anyway I totally recommend this product coz it looks good, stays long on my nails and damn those glitters are amazing))

Okay the color of this lipstick is just sick! I loved it from the moment I saw it at Asos. In life it looks even better, the color is more vibrant. I mostly wear beige lippies so this is something I’m not used to. This Barry M lip product (it’s in color 100 Baby Pink) has gorgeous packaging too. But what I didn’t like was the smell – it reminds me of school coz it smells like chalk to me. Weird, right)) Another thing, I wasn’t happy about is the fact that the lippie is soooooo dry. I mean I am definitely more used to more creamy and moisturising lip products. So yeah, if you’re someone like me, you’d better purchase a good lip balm if you’ve decided to buy this lipstick.

Hope, this post was useful and fun to read)
