Chanel Ombre Première Eyeshadows

thumbnail_IMG_2130

I recently visited the Chanel counter in Boots and was lucky enough to try out the new Ombre Premiere Eyeshadow Collection. The collection features two new textures, cream and powder, both with a long lasting effect. There are 24 shades in the collection, with multiple finishes, including matte, metalic and satiny.

When I arrived at the counter, the regional makeup artist for Chanel greeted me and introduced me to the new range. She then began matching up the colours best suited to my skin tone and eye colour. As I have greeny/blue eyes, she was looking to match me with a colour that would make my eye colour pop and brighten my eyes.

 

We decided to use both textures using a layering effect in order to create a soft smoky eye. The shades she picked were Sable 28 and Desert Rouge 36 in the powder range, along with Pourpre Profond 810 and Scintillance 804 in the cream range.

I was amazed at how pigmented the shadows were and I love the way the cream and powder eyeshadows blended perfectly.

The look was completed with the Le Gel Sourcils Eyebrow Gel in Transparent 350 and the Imitable Intense Mascara in Noir 10.

I am in love with the new range and I was so impressed with my finished look. The product did not budge all day, so I was happy to invest in this amazing range.

It didn’t take long to apply these products and I would feel comfortable in this look in both the day and night.

The shades are incredible and I would definitely recommend you try out these products.

Technic Cosmetics Review

befunky-collage

 

Technic Cosmetics Review.

After reading many reviews of this brand, I was excited to try out the products for myself.
Technic Cosmetics has an amazing range of cosmetics at very affordable prices.  The packing of their products is very sleek and light weight, which is very appealing and helpful if you travel a lot.

After trying a few products out for myself, I was amazed at the quality of the products, especially as they were all priced under £5.

I decided to write a review of the products I tried out – I hope you enjoy!

Get Gorgeous Highlighting Powder – Pink Sparkle £3.00

I am so happy that I had the chance to try out this highlighter as it is truly beautiful. This highlighter is extremely pigmented and unlike many other budget highlighters, this one leaves a glowing finish, without looking like you have tons of glitter on your face.

I have used this highlighter in both the day and night and it is extremely long lasting. If you’re looking to try out a budget highlighter I would definitely recommend you try this one out.

Face Powder Brush – £4.75

I used this Face Powder Brush which is also from Technic Cosmetics to apply my highlighter. Not only is the colour of this brush amazing, but it’s so soft and fluffy which I adore.

Juicy Stick Lipstick – Bare Necessities £2.99

I tried the Juicy Stick Lipstick in the shade Bare Necessities. The shade has a Nude/Caramel tone which I love. This product is long lasting and doesn’t dry out your lips which is great.

Eyeshadow Primer – Shimmer £1.99

This Eyeshadow Primer has an amazing highlighting base, which can be used on it’s own or under eyeshadow. I found this product really helps to stop eyeshadow from creasing and it also allowed my eyeshadow to stay in place all night.

Mega Lash – £4.00 

Mega Lash is described as a ‘mega volumising mascara’ and it does exactly that. I was surprised at how amazing it made my lashes look and it wasn’t clumpy at all. The brush on this mascara makes it really easy to ensure that every eyelash is covered and not squashed together.

Here is my finished look using the products.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of Technic Cosmetics and I would love to hear if you have tried out any of their products!

Makeup Revolution Haul

I’ve read a lot of reviews of Makeup Revolution products and after trying a few out for myself I decided to write a post to let you know what I think of them!

thumbnail_img_3091

There are a few primers in the Makeup Revolution range, but I decided to go for the Ultra Face Base Primer. When testing out this primer it seemed to have a matte texture to it, which I love for an everyday primer.

On application this product leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and allows you to apply your foundation at ease. After a evening out my make up still seemed to be in tact which I thought was amazing seeing as the product only cost me £5.00. This primer is a good dupe for the Smash Box Photo Finish Primer.

 

After applying my foundation, I decided to use the Makeup Revolution Bronzer in Kiss. This is quite a matte bronzer, but it can be perfectly matched with a highlighter to give a bronzed glow. There was an offer on in store when I purchased these items which allowed me to get the Love The Revolution Palette for free! 

The palette consists of several eyeshadows and highlighters. I used the bronze highlighter for my cheekbones and the lilac toned highlighter under my brow line.

This palette is really pigmented which I was extremely impressed with, especially as it was free.

 

I also purchased the Beyond Flawless Ultra Eyeshadow Palette. This palette consists of matte shadows, mixed with a few golden shimmer tones. Again the shadows were surprisingly pigmented and easy to blend. I decided to use the shades Flawless, Toasty and Chesnut to create my look.

I found that the shadows aren’t as long lasting as others I have tried, but at £8.00 I am still impressed with the product.

I finished my look with Eyelure Volume Lashes in Petite 107 and Mac Lipstick in the shade Yash.

Makeup Revolution has some great products and they’re all reasonably priced. If you’re looking to try out some budget make up, I would definitely give this brand a go.

My favourite makeup products this month!

thumbnail_img_2542

This month I have purchased several items which I have fallen in love with and I thought I would share them with you!

I am always on the look out for new make-up products to try out and reading reviews on them help me decide on what to buy, so I am hoping this post may  help some of you.

This month I was lucky enough to take a trip to Paris with my boyfriend. Whilst I was there I was amazed to find that we were staying five minutes away from Sephora. So of course I had to stock up on a few new items and this palette was one of the items I purchased.

The palette is called The Delicate and features some amazing nude, bronze and golden eye shadows which I absolutely adore. I feel that the colours are perfect for this season and they’re so pigmented and long lasting – if you’re looking for a small eye shadow palette to add to your collection, I would definitely recommend you check this one out!

The second product I am loving this month is the Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation. Before trying this product I heard mixed reviews about it, but I decided give it a go anyway. This foundation gives full coverage, which is perfect for a night out or a long day at work. Unlike many other full coverage foundations I’ve tried, it’s not too thick and it still lets my skin breathe which is amazing. I’ve actually started to mix this foundation with my Double Wear and it’s become one of my new favourites.

When shopping at the Urban Decay counter I also decided to pick up the Afterglow Highlighter in the shade Sin. This highlighter promotes itself as lasting 8 hours and I can honestly say it does the trick! I usually wear this highlighter every day to work and it’s been staying on my face without me having to use any setting spray which is amazing. I probably wouldn’t use the product for a night out because it’s still quite subtle, but it’s brilliant for everyday use.

The last product I recommend you try out is a NYX Intense Butter-Gloss. I love this range and have tried out many shades, but the one I am loving at the minute is the shade Chocolate Crepe. This shade is a dark brown shade, with hints of red and is perfect for this season. I would wear this product both day and night, as it goes with almost any outfit. This gloss also lasts all day which is always a bonus.

So there you have my favourite makeup products of the month. There are so many items I am loving at the moment and I am always on the hunt for more – let me know what products you recommend I try this season!
