My new found love

The other week I went into town and bought a few bits and bobs from Smashbox and I also got given a free Lancome gift set. So, I thought i'd write a short review about each product, as I was really happy with my purchases. I am by no means a make up expert, just thought I would share my views on these products.


Foundation - I thought I'd try out a new liquid base foundation and I got help from a very nice lady in the shop who helped me find the right colour for my skin. When I tried it on in the shop I was pleasantly surprised at how it gave such a natural look, which was what I was looking for. It covers up all blemishes really nicely and is also oil free.

Concealer - I really like this concealer. There have been so many different reviews saying it's too liquidy or it smears easily. Personally, I think it does a really good job in concealing any blotchy/darkness under my eyes, yet still gives a nice natural look. 

Eyebrow Shadow - This is probably my favourite eyebrow product so far. You get two different shades of brown. In my case I use the lighter brown to fill in the beginning of the brow and then the darker brown to fill in where the eyebrows get thinner. I think it works really well and gives a very natural looking effect and isn't too heavy. It also comes with wax to keep your brows in place.    

I've used all of these products in my previous photos if you want to see what they look like on me

Mascara - I really liked the gift set and i'm definitely going to be using the mascara a lot. I think it makes my lashes look a lot longer, however it doesn't make them as thick and volumized as I'd like. 

Eyeliner - I don't really wear eye liner but I tried it out and I was impressed that it stayed on the whole day, as the eye liners I have tried on before have always faded. 

Eye Serum - I also got a little bottle with 'youth activating eye serum' inside. I'm probably a little young for that, but I thought i'd try it out anyway. It felt really nice on the skin, but I didn't really see any change under my eyes. Apparently, it's supposed to reduce wrinkles and make you look fresh.
