Avon Eyeshadow Primer Review

  
Hello my little buttons!

Here’s my quick review on Avons Eyeshadow Primer in the shade Light Beige which I bought for £7 from my local Avon representative. I’m always on the hunt for affordable eyeshadow primers that really work. What I look for in a primer is a product that keeps my shadow put and holds that creasing at bay. Nothing drives me crazier than creasing eyeshadow it makes me look greasy, smudgy and overall a hot mess. So to me primer is essential in my daily makeup routine. 

  
As you can see the primer is a light creamy consistency, I like that there is a touch of colour to the product which helps even out the skin tone on my lids. It’s easy to apply and blends in beautifully, it dries slightly tacky which really helps my eyeshadows stick. I’ve tested this out with many different quality of shadows from elizabeth Arden and urban decay to makeup revolution and MUA, and each time the results have been the same. My eyeshadow has lasted with minimal fading, zero creasing and overall im really happy with the product it does what it says on the tin. 

  
The packaging I like, its a cute little glass pot with a black plastic lid, it’s sleek and has a nice weight to it making it feel fairly luxurious. My only moan, is the amount of product you actually get. As you can see when I remove the lid and hold it to the side there is very little product in relation to the size of the glass pot. A little does go a long way, I’ve been using it for several weeks and there’s still loads left but I do find it irritating as it seems like such a waste of space in my makeup bag. Apart from that this product gets a big thumbs up from me!

MeMeMe Enchanted Eyes Dual Ended Wand Review

  

Hello my little buttons! 

I received this chunky eyeshadow/eyeliner pencil in a glossy box recently. Love that it’s duel ended and the metallic blues are just gorgeous as you can see. I love colourful make up but if I’m in a rush it can be fairly time consuming so this seemed like a great solution for quick blue eyes. 

  
I primed my eyes like normal, I used the darker shade under my waterline and the lighter blue on the lids using my finger to blend it out slightly. First impression love it, super quick and easy to apply blends nicely, perfect colours. 

Within 20 minutes this happened….

    

Seriously, within 20 minutes!!!!  Creased, faided just absolutely awful!! As I had the school run to do I popped on my sun glasses to hide the horror and went on my way. At least with my eyes open it looked fairly ok. 

  
Within another hour even the blue underneath was smearing everywhere, it was like food dye trying to cover every inch of my face. It was getting in my eyes and overall if im totally honest… Looked like crap. I literally had to remove it all, it couldn’t be saved and by this point my eyes were stinging. More joy of joys it STAINED MY EYES. I was in the middle of tesco toilets with baby wipes scrubbing like a crazy person. The blue tinge would not budge, I looked like I had been punched in the face. Not a great look while doing the weekly food shop. Thankfully when I got home, with makeup remover I managed to get most of it but there was defiantly a light tinge still left. 

I will never use this product again, so disappointing as I really thought it would be a staple in my collection. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this product, please subscribe for more reviews like this! 

Essence Kajal Eyeliner Review

 
Hello my little buttons! 

So far everything I have tried from Essence I’ve liked, so I had high hopes for this liner. At only £1 it would of been so affordable I could of bought one for every handbag!  Swatching it on my hand is was super dark and really creamy, but not so soft it squished everywhere. On first application I was really happy with the pigmentation and how easily it clung to the waterline.

  
As you can see, super dark and neat. I felt like I was on to a winner. I really wish I would of taken a photo 2 hours after, something in this liner really made my eyes water. So after my eyes chilled out a had a quick clean up and carried on with my day. Until I caught a glimpse in the mirror, it had all merged into my tear ducts! So much so it gave the illusion my eyes were really close together!!!! It had also smudged under my eyes i looked like a panda. Sadly none had lasted on my lower or upper water line at all. So disappointed! I recently looked online at http://www.wilko.com where I bought my Essence cosmetics before and they now do a long lasting gel eyeliner which I am keen to try! So sorry boys and girls this really didn’t work for me but I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! Have a great weekend! Xxx
