On a recent trip to Boots, I found myself browsing the NYX make-up counter and ended up picking up one of the Vivid Brights Coloured Liquid Liners in the shade ‘Vivid Violet’. The Vivid Brights range of liquid liners has been out for a while but I haven’t looked at them before. I’m glad I picked one up to try as I love it – relatively inexpensive, easy to apply and vivid, high impact colour in liquid form!
Some time ago, I watched a You Tube video by Emilynoel83 where she recommended the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors. I have tried out – and loved – some of the products she has recommended in the past and so I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of these lipsticks. The Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors are a relatively new addition to the Revlon lipstick line-up. I picked up two shades: 705 Dawn, a neutral rose with a slight sheen and 760 Vineyard, a medium mauve-plum.
One of my favourite plum lipsticks (MAC Craving) finished a while ago (sob!) and so there was a wee plum coloured gap in my lipstick collection. Rather than buying the same shade again, I really wanted to try out a similar shade from another brand. There is something really fun about trying out a similar shade from another brand, particularly one that I haven’t tried before. Enter Smashbox ‘Be Legendary Lipstick’ in ‘My Digits’!
I came across this ’20 Beauty Questions’ make-up tag on a make-up and lifestyle blog calledAmber&Amethyst(which she found on Beautify Brooke). Here are my answers to the make-up tag. Hope you enjoy reading the post!
I’ve pasted the questions at the end of the post, so feel free to let me know your answers in the comments section below. I always love finding out about other people’s favourite products and make-up stashes:o).
I mentioned some time ago in a ‘sneak peek’ post (read more here) that I had purchased several products from the Benefit brow range. This post will focus on one of the products: the Ready, Set, Brow! 24 Hour Setting Gel. When I had a brow lesson at the House of Fraser counter, the make-up artist used this product on my brows straight after she used the Goof Proof Pencil (click here to read my post on this pencil) to define, shape and set my brows. I really loved how defined, yet natural, this product made my brows look and purchased it some time after when Debenhams had a 10% off beauty event sale.
Maybelline recently released the Color Drama Intense Lip Paints in the UK (aka Color Jolt Intense Lip Paints in the USA) and they have quickly become a favourite of mine. The lip paints are smooth, pigmented and feel so light on the lips. I think they are a good dupe for the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks – just as pigmented but at a fraction of the price.

Today, I am going to introduce you to a recent discovery of mine: Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara with a curved brush. I used the normal non-curved brush version of this mascara years ago and really liked it. However, I had completely forgotten about it as there are always so many new exciting mascaras being released which pull me in. Recently, I noticed there was a curved brush version on the market in the UK. Well, I just had to try it, especially since it was only £5 for a limited time in Superdrug!
