I was lucky enough to win this Eye Pencil from GlamGleek for being their reviewer of the week.
This pencil is BRILLIANT. I can smudge it; I can blend it or leave it alone. Once I have applied it, it stays where I have put it. I have used it to draw a thin line close to my lashes and a thicker line when I am not wearing eyeshadow. It stays all day and is easily removed with Micellar Water (I used IT Cosmetics) and a cleansing balm (again IT Cosmetics). I did not have panda eyes, this attractive black rings around your eyes when eye make up won’t come off. You canmore... easily create a winged eyeliner look with it. It doesn’t drag across the eye lid like some pencils can and the ability to increase or decrease the amount of ‘lead’ showing is great as this helped me create the winged part of the liner look by placing the pencil against my eye and slowly pulling it down towards my lash line. I have had a look at their website and the colours – are all the colours I like to wear. I think I will treat myself to the grey one next.
Again, I purchased this when I saw it on an Instagram post letting use know that it had been launched. Most of my eyeliners in the past have been black – I ordered the brown. I admit that I prefer a matte look to my eyes as I don’t want to draw to the redness that I permanently. I am not the greatest at creating a flick and found that placing the felt tip where I wanted my flick I could create it easily. The tip is also flexible so that you can draw very close to the top lashes and create either a thick or thin line depending on what type of look you want to create. If you want a thin linmore...e then apply it once your mascara has dried, if you want a thick line apply it before your mascara. The brown is for a more natural look, if you want a more dramatic look try the black. I like the They’re Real Push Liner in all colour variants but I will admit that this is the eyeliner of choice for everyday wear and I will be purchasing the black to see how it looks.
Having seen this on Instagram, I bought it from Benefits UK website. I had bought it before I was told that I shouldn’t wear anything in my waterline which I have tried, and my eyes were red and very sensitive. I apply it to the inner corner of my eye and had no problems. I do like this pencil – the texture is perfect if you want to blend it or leave how it came out of the bullet. My first thought that it would be very noticeable as it has a slight shimmer, but it isn’t. The colour seems adaptable to whatever skin tone it is applied to, again I was worried that it would be too pink for my more...colouring I was wrong. It works well when my eyes are red due to irritation or from being too tired as I have not slept properly, and it goes everywhere I go as I like to re-apply it to make sure I always look awake and less tired. I will be repurchasing it.
I had seen this on their QVC UK shows and wanted to try it as eyeliner is part of my every day look, I don’t wear eyeshadow unless I am going out out. I ordered it from their UK website and picked the shade Brown as most of my eyeliners that I wear on a daily basis are black. It is a lovely formulation that is long wearing both outlining the eye and in the water line. I had even used it to tight line my eye. It looked fantastic when I did it. But unfortunately I have had to stop using it as I have been diagnosed with Dry Eye and MGD, my hubby would always say my eyes looked sore and red wmore...henever I used it. My eyes are sensitive to some of the ingredients in the formulation which means I cannot wear it at the moment I am hoping that once I have my eye problems under control I can wear it again. The shades that are available in the range are prefect and all the colours I would wear. One point of should make is that even though it is waterproof it comes off easily with makeup remover without having to rub the eye area too hard.
The Storm colourway. Though I try to use products that do not contain parabens I love this palette. The shadows look very bright in the palette, but they can be applied subtly. The shadows work well either on their own or with others from the palette. I have used the matte black and brown as an eyeliner which worked well and lasted all day. I used a brush to apply these shadows rather than the applicator that came with them as I found I had more control of how much and where I wanted to place the colour. These can be built up and layered to create different looks. There is little fall-oumore...t, but the colour play-off is brilliant. All the colours are wearable whatever your age and eye colour. I have worn m singularly to create a smoky look as well as combining two or more to create an eye look. I will be buying more of these palettes in the various shades ranges that they have.
This is the ultimate ‘basics’ eye palette that can be used on its own or as a base for other looks. It contains 11 matte shadows and 1 shimmer that can be worn over other shadows. The colour play-off is great, and they blend easily. There is a little residue left behind when used with a brush. It does come with a sponge applicator, but I didn’t use it with the shadows as I prefer to use a brush. You can use all of them as eye-shadows or I have used the darker shades as eye-liner applying them using an angle brush. They last all day, don’t fade or go patchy. You can create looks that aremore... perfect with jeans and a t-shirt or for a day at the office or a night out. The shadows can be worn singularly or more than one as they all work well together. I used the darker shadows singularly create the smoky eye look for a jeans and t-shirt day and with other shadows to create a more structed eye look. The pale shadows are brilliant as a base.
At the time I purchased these items C1 was the lightest shade they had, they have now released a white shade amongst other shades. These formulas blend well both under and over my foundation. I use the C1 under my eyes and C3 to hide any blemishes I have. I also use C3 to correct the colour of my eye lids as I have one darker than the other. I dot the product on using the doe foot applicator and then blend with my fingers, it doesn’t move my foundation. If I want a more polished finish I use my BeautyBlender to blend the product in under my eyes and my lids. Occasionally if I feel that tmore...he dark circles are more noticeable them I will apply C1 before my foundation and then C3 after applying my foundation. I also apply C3 to my nose and cheeks as it is permanently red if my foundation can’t take the redness down and blend using my BeautyBlender. These two products have now joined my arsenal of products that I use when I am having a good day. I will be re-purchasing them and other products from the range. They may be targeted to teens and young adults, but this middle-aged woman loves using them.
I had placed an order with IT Cosmetics UK website and this was part of the samples they had sent me. It is a lovely mascara that covers all my lashes including he tiny ones. I have one eyelash on my right eye that doesn’t like to behave itself other mascaras keep it in line. This mascara didn’t. It is a fantastic mascara and I would recommend it for anyone who has Dry Eye and MGD as it doesn’t contain any of the nasties that can cause irritation. I have found one coat of the mascara is enough to an impact.
What can I say about this – its great. Perfect to wear with jeans and jumper or when you want to look smart. The bullet is a baby pink but when applied to the lips it will go the right shade of pink for you which is great. My lips are moisturised and doesn’t make my skin on my lips peel like some lip treatments have
This is fantastic. It primes your lashes, gives the impression that you have tightlined your eyes and have applied mascara – all done in one step. If you want to look done then this is for you as it is so easy to apply using the fine brush – though try to get your kids not talk to you while applying otherwise you might poke yourself in the eye – I think I do it at least once a morning, my boys haven’t learnt to not to talk to me why I am applying it. It makes my lashes look fuller and longer.
