After my disappointment in the Maybelline Master Sculpt Contour Palette, I needed to find another. And so obviously I went into Boots and bought more than I needed…no surprises there. Luckily though, there were some good little finds…
This was my first foray into Revlon products and this is already my new favourite concealer. Despite being in a stick, it has a lovely creamy, soft texture which I find blends really well. It also seems to last a really long time, especially compared to the L’Oréal Lumi Magique concealer which disappointedly only lasted about a month.
I’m in two minds about this highlighter to be honest. I can see that it will last ages as it’s a large tube and you only need a teeny tiny bit. But I think that could also lead to the reason why I’m not 100% sold. It’s perhaps too shimmery and a bit too much. That said, on days when you’re feeling hungover or run down, it’s great for making you look a little more alive!
I don’t know, perhaps high street contour palettes just aren’t as good as I’m hoping in general. This one is better than the Maybelline one that’s for sure. But the colours are perhaps a bit too subtle. It’s good for everyday and a bit of contouring for work, but for a night out you want something with a bit more impact and I don’t think this quite brings it. Maybe 003 would have been a better bet. If you’ve got a good contour kit, let me know as my search continues….
How some girls achieve the perfect winged look every day baffles me. Im forever on the hunt for an eyeliner that makes this an easier job. Trying the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is on my list but when I saw this cheap Collection liner I thought I’d give it a go. And I’m actually pleasantly surprised. The applicator is an odd shape but seems to do the job in terms of making winged eyeliner easier. Don’t get me wrong, I still haven’t nailed it, but the small flick that this creates is definitely a step in the right direction. It’s also pretty damn resilient and lasts a long time!
I think I’ve had this eyeliner before and I wasn’t blown away so not sure why I got it again tbh. The pen is a bit scratchy and despite them saying it has both thick and thin sides, I’ve struggled to do anything decent with this. I feel like one of those berol pens that we had in school would probably do a better job.
If you’ve got any high street make-up recommendations, hit me up….it’s probably about time I visited Boots again!
