The Ultimate Long-Lasting Matte Lipsticks | Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink

Friday, 2 March 2018

These Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink lipsticks are so handy for just throwing into your bag and I have been OBSESSED with them lately. The three shades I picked out are perfect, there is always one to suit the occasion, whether I'm just going to work, or I'm going for drinks with the girls. 


These liquid lipsticks have the most gorgeous formula. They don't dry out your lips or flake - which has been super handy, this week especially with the Beast from the East and Storm Emma gracing Northern Ireland. They also don't transfer or smudge and they are waterproof. Even my old faves, the Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Paints (review here and here) do not stand up to this. 


As you can see, I got 3 shades in the Maybelline Matte Inks - 65 Seductress, 15 Lover and 80 Ruler. And wow are they the perfect shades or what?!

Seductress is a gorgeous brown nude, it's not too light or dark. Lover is a dusky pink shade which looks so pretty on the lips so it's basically my go-to for when I want to look like I've made a bit more of an effort without going OTT. And then there's Ruler, which probably gets the least use out of the three, only because it is bold and I'm more of a natural lip girl on a day-to-day basis. That being said, I love it for a night out, and as it's borderline pink and red (sounds weird I know but it's gorgeous) it goes with almost everything.


This lipstick settles into your lips and not even eating a 3-course meal with plenty of drinks, will make this stuff budge. I AM SHOOK! 


I picked these up in Superdrug last month on a 2 for £12 offer, which they run quite often so it was an absolute bargain. They retail for £9.99, however, this is still a good price for how amazing they are and I will definitely be picking up more soon - I have my eye on 95 Visionary and 50 Voyager.

Morphe 15N Night Master Palette

Thursday, 14 December 2017
It has been month's since I've posted anything on here so I thought that since I'm off for Christmas I'd do a quick review of a palette I have been LOVING recently; the Morphe 15N Night Master Eyeshadow Palette.


Packaging
One thing I am never fussed on is an eyeshadow palette in cardboard packaging, for me, it's not durable or travel-friendly. So I am so so pleased that this Morphe palette is in sleek plastic packaging and it also has a mirror, so it's perfect in terms of packaging for what I look for. 


Application
I use the Morphe Set 702 - 12 Piece Eye-Credible Set to apply all my eye makeup and honestly, there is nothing in this set that I don't use, and neither is there anything missing from it. I've been looking for a good eye set for ages, but I didn't want to splurge on the Zoeva brushes because for me it wouldn't make sense to spend that much. So at only £25 for 12 beautiful brushes, it's an absolute steal in my eyes. 


Formula
The Night Master Palette contains 15 beautiful shades, a mixture of matte and shimmer shades. These are all pressed to give the perfect amount of pigmentation and they are really easily blended. Something Morphe always seems to get right. 

Colour
Within the 15N Night Master Palette, there are 9 matte shades and 6 shimmers. They range from creams and browns to deep purples. Perfect for achieving a sultry smokey look, but there's also a good range of browns if you wanted something a bit more natural.


Wear
I've been wearing shades from this palette, every day from when it arrived and honestly it is perfect for day and night and they don't crease or wear off noticeably during the day. Obviously, over the 12 hours that I'm wearing them some days, they're not as perfect at the end of the day, but find me a palette that is.

Price
I purchased mine straight from Morphe's website during the Black Friday sales, however, it is also available on the Beauty Bay website for just £15.

Glam Eyes | Barry M Glitter Rush + Fixer Gel Review

Saturday, 7 October 2017
Long time no see. I have now finished my second week of second year at uni, woohoo. I took the last few weeks off blogging so that I could really settle into a uni/work routine and then slowly introduce blogging back in again. So I am thinking at the minute of doing one post per week to see how that goes. Getting photographs is the most tricky thing for me but I did get a new phone (iPhone 8plus) so that issue will hopefully go away. Although I will probably still try to use my set up at my parents' house to take most of my photographs still.

So for today's post, I thought that I would introduce you to my new favourite thing, Barry M's Glitter Rush eye glitters and give a quick review to let you know why I love them so much, although look at those shades. Wow. 


Packaging
Barry M keep it simple with their packaging and I think its extremely practical for when you're using the product. If you look closely you'll see that the glitter pots have holes to let the product out. This means that if you drop the glitter pot while it's open you'll not lose all of the product and I think this is perfect because there's nothing worse than spilt glitter.






Application
To apply the Barry M Glitter Rush I use the EcoTools Petité Eye Shading Brush which is a small flat brush which is the perfect shape and size for applying the glitter in small amounts so that you can be precise with the placement of it. I put a small amount of the Barry M Glitter Fixer Gel on the brush and then just dip it into the glitter pot and then apply in the areas I want. I used to use lash glue to apply glitter but I am so glad that Barry M have finally released this Gel as it works so well.


Formula
The Fixer Gel is just a clear gel which comes in a squeezy tube which allows you to control how much product you want to use and trust me a little goes a long way and I don't end up finding glitter all over my face afterwards either which is especially good. The glitter itself is quite fine which I absolutely love, this means that it applies smooth and you can still build up how pigmented you want it to be.


Colour
There are a total of 8 glitters in this range and I have purchased Rose Quartz (Pink)Fireball (Gold) and Onyx (Almost Black). Other shades include Aquamarine (Blue/Green)Moonstone (Silver)Snow Globe (White)Desert Bronze (Bronze) and Ultraviolet (Purple).


Wear
I have tried quite a few different eye glitters and pigments and these are definitely the easiest ones to work with and they always look amazing and last for HOURS!! I've used the fixer gel with both the Barry M glitters and glitters from other brands and it definitely keeps the glitter in place.

Price
Both the glitters and the fixer gel are available online and instore from Superdrug. The Glitter Rush's cost £4.59 each and the Fixer Gel is available for £4.99. Where else can you get glitters at such an affordable price?

Do you use eye glitters?
