New Products


This post is just a small review on the 3 makeup items I bought this month. I will do an updated post with my opinions on each of the items after I have used them more as I feel I haven't used them enough to write a developed post on them just yet!

The first thing I purchased was the Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter. I half purchased this on a whim as initially I was buying a top on asos and needed to buy something else in order to qualify for free delivery. When I realised asos sold theBalm, I had to to have it! It seemed that this was the highlighter that every youtuber and beauty blogger seemed to be using at the moment. I checked the internet to see if anywhere had it cheaper and I found that feelunique had a discount for new members, so I managed to purchase it for just £12.96. I am loving the product so far, it leaves a beautiful glow/sheen on the cheeks. You can purchase it here.

Secondly, I bought the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. I had never used a gel liner before but after borrowing a friends, I found that it was much easier to get a fine line and this is crucial for me as I have very hooded eyes. So I purchased this one and so far so good! It lasts all day and I am able to get it right up to my lash line using a thin angled brush (I purchased mine from ebay for just under £2 and it's brilliant!!!)

The final product I bought was the Kevyn Aucoin Precision Brown Pencil. I purchased this in SpaceNK as I had been given a gift voucher for Christmas and wanted to buy something that I wouldn't normally get myself. This woman working there recommended this as she said it was like one of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz, though being one of the few yet to try it, I cannot make any comparisons! However it has a lovely fine nib which allows you to make small hair like strokes and a spoolie on the other end to comb through brows, what more can you want?


Let me know in the comments what products you have bought this month and if you have tried any of the above!
