REVIEW : Urban Decay’s Primer Potion

It took me a while to decide what to review next, so i was looking through my products and it hit me!

I thought i should use one of the products I use the most! And that would be Urban Decays primer potion!

As you can tell by the the name it is a primer! It is possibly one of the best eye shadow primers on the market to this day ! The eye shadow primer comes in 4 different shades!

  1. Original
  2. Sin
  3. Eden
  4. Greed


Because Sin, Eden and Greed and coloured primers they can serve as eye shadows or even highlighters!

It comes in cute simple packaging and its easy to use, you just squeeze a bit out onto your finger, lightly apply all over the lid to the brow bone and even under the lower lash line if you plan on putting any product there!

The purpose of the primer is to act as a barrier between your skin and your make-up and also to get the most from your eye shadow! Applying the primer helps bring out the pigments/colour of your eye shadow, it makes eye shadow easier to blend and also helps it stay on longer!

Its a non crease primer which lasts 24hours!

The primer potion comes in 3 sizes!


The travel size bottle you get with the Naked palette  or buy on its own 3.7ml


The normal size tube ( it used to be in a 10ml bottle similar to the travel size) 11ml


And the professional size tube! 21ml

Rough Prices !
Travel size : €7.50 , $9, £6
Normal size :€16 , $20 , £13
Professional size : €24, $30 , £19.50

I would HIGHLY reccomend this product to anyone who loves wearing make-up, esp. if you like your make vibrant!

REVIEW : Illamasqua’s Skin Base foundation

I received my free sample of Illamasqua’s new Skin base foundation!
I recieved the shade SB01 Which is  perfect for mixing with foundations to lighten them as its a white foundation (or for a zombie look etc 😉  )  and I have to say it is AMAZING!

Image

It feels like silk and it just glides along the skin and it blends beautifully! I highly reccomend investing in a bottle of this foundation! The foundation is pricey for some people it is £25 ! But it is well worth it in my opinion, Foundation is one of the few things i would advise to splash out on if you know what brands to get and this one is a must for any makeup bag/kit/collection!!! This foundation comes in 18 different shades so you will not be stuck it will have your colour! From extremely pale skin to dark skins!

Illamasqua’s Description/Info of the foundation :

Inspired by the cult Asian market Beauty Balm creams, Skin Base Foundation is a brand new, refined formula unlike anything on the UK market. Easily blendable, it effortlessly creates a perfect complexion, and like the entire Illamasqua foundation range, is undetectable in a professional HD environment. Suitable for all skin types, it smoothes, softens and conditions your skin whilst providing natural, buildable coverage.
The Ultimate ‘Skin Realism’ Foundation

REVIEW : Urban Decay Naked palette

I have recently bought the Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette.
This is a beautiful 12 eyeshadow palette , the eye shadow shades go from nude to black!
The eyeshadows are very strongly pigmented and go on beautifully!

I picked this palette up is Debenhams for only €36! Not only does the palette come in subtle yet beautiful packaging but it also comes with a small travel sized bottle of primer potion (eye shadow primer) and a beautiful brush to apply your shadows with!! The brush is also animal crulty free which is a HUGE bonus!

I myself cannot fault this palette at all, i love the shades and the pay off of the palette and it is deffinatly worth €36!

What not to do when applying make-up!!

The video that this short rant was wrote about has been removed from YouTube, sadly because you can’t see what I’m on about , and thankfully to stop foolish people listening to her.
Honestly if anyone had followed this “tutorial” they would look a mess or get an infection!
The woman stated she was NOT a huge brush cleaner.
That is a huge no no if you are applying makeup!!

Makeup has few rules but hygiene and washing your brushs is the NO.1 rule and most important.
Also a few minutes into the “tutorial” she sucks on her brush to get the mountain of product she has on it to “clean” the brush!
I almost threw up watching that!

DO NOT DO THIS. I know its common knowledge not to do this.. but obviously some people do.
This is disgusting.
This video is an outrage to makeup and i cant believe this woman has more than 1000 subscribers praising her work.

Thanks for listening to my rant!
STAY CLEAN! 😉

Powder eye shadow: 2 years

Cream eye shadow: 12-18 months

Eyeliner: 3 months

Mascara: 3 months ( some last longer , again smell it and if it stinks throw it out!)

  Powder blush: 2 years
  Cream blush: 6 months
Oil-free foundation: 12 months

REVIEW : Inglot’s New store in Blanchardstown

On the 8th of October 2011 I headed to Blanchardstown for the Inglot Launch, Needless to say there was a MASSIVE queue outside the doors, people of all ages just dying to get in.

There was a goody bag for the first 50 people in the door, and sadly i was number 58 i think , so i missed out of the goody bag but i did receive a voucher for a complimentary make over which it awesome 😀

So the shop is just beautiful, the set up is amazing and its easy to get around (except for today because it was PACKED) I honestly couldnt move without bumping into about 5 people at a time!

So for those of you who do not know what Inglot is, Inglot is a Polish makeup brand and has been around for just over 25years. It was created by the Inglot family , Mr.Inglot,  a Pharmacist set out to have have products at affordable prices but using only high quality ingredients. There are over 300 stores world wide, and also ( My favorite part ) THEY DO NOT TEST ON ANIMALS!

Now what i ADORE about Inglot is their freedom system.
The freedom system is a selection of palettes starting from 2 slots and going up.
You then choose your shades of eyeshadows , lipsticks , brow wax’s etc.

For example I picked up a 5 eyeshadow palette and chose my own 5 shades

Shades (left to right ) : 318 , 371 , 320 , 51 and 331

They are super pigmented! And their range of shades is amazing, i was honestly there for half an hour deciding what to get!

For the palette and the 5 shadows is was only €30!
That is AMAZING value for such fantastic products!

So i also created a quick look with my palette today!
Here it is!

I would highly recommend finding out where your closest Inglot store is, and go have a look!

REVIEW : Maybelline Eye Studio Gel liner

Image

So a short while back this gel liner was reccommended by the AMAZING Michelle Anderson!
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sherisan-Wharmby-Makeup/195726843786740?ref=ts#!/pages/Michelle-Anderson-Makeup/282228579318

And then about 2 weeks ago it was also recommended by the extremely talented Marie Viktoria http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sherisan-Wharmby-Makeup/195726843786740?ref=ts#!/pages/Marie-Viktoria-Make-Up/162027853833667

So i decided to pick it up and try it out and all i can say is WOW this gel eyeliner is FANTASTIC!
It was €7.99 in Boots when i bought it but it is normal only €10.99 and thats a BARGAIN!

Both Michelle and Marie said it is better than M.A.C and i have to agree! It comes with a little eyeliner brush to apply it and the brush is lovely! The gel liner glides on smoothly, its very creamy ,its extremely black and it is extremely long lasting!! It says 24hour on the box and I approve of that statement , ( i even used it on my hand, washed , my hands , used my hands for eating etc and even went to sleep with it on my hand, and when i woke up it was still in the shape i drew it in and barely faded!

I highly recommend this product to everyone, especially eye liner lovers and anyone starting out using make-up!
Its (in my opinion) easier than a liquid liner to use, its longer lasting than pencil liners and its just so beautiful That i haven’t found another product that compares to it!!
The brush it comes with makes it very easy to do winged/cat wing shapes which allot of people find difficult!

Thank you for reading and I hope this was helpful.
