Barry M Bold Waterproof Eyeliner in Silver

Eyeliners... I just love them! 

Barry M Bold Waterproof eyeliners are something else and I think are the quality of many high-end brands out there, for one this is a close dupe of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Dime but Barry M is lighter and brighter in colour and actually more pigmented! 

As for the texture, it's intensely creamy, soft and full of pigment, you do need to be careful with these eyeliners as being creamy they can easily snap, there is no need of pressure as these just flow on application with a light hand.

Bold Waterproof Eyeliners come in 7 shades even though it's a good amount they need to release more colours. 

Silver- A bright and light metallic silver with small glitzy shimmery particles (no grittiness)

RRP is £3.99

MAC Powder Blush in Well Dressed

I've always thought of MAC to be a mid-end brand but now I'm thinking of it being a luxury high-end since the prices seem to jump up nearly every year. However I've had this in my collection for quite some time. 

Well Dressed comes under the 'Satin' finish. MAC describes this as a 'Immaculate Pink' not really the greatest indication of the colour but there you go. I'd describe this as a light mauve pink with a fair amount of pearly glow since it's a satin. 

As it's not the strongest of pigments in a powder blush and it's a light colour, it makes it very easy to use and not go overboard. The texture is smooth and not heavy even when you build the product up. A great colour for pale and light toned skin and gives a lovely doll like flush. On darker skin tones I can imagine it to give a really beautiful angelic glow.

RRP is £17.50

Baviphat Apple Soft Lip Balm

Baviphat is cosmetic Korean brand. You just know with this packaging. :)

Apple Soft Lip Balm comes in a actual red plastic apple designed screw top pot, really sweet. Obviously it is not as big as a real apple and is rather small which is expected considering it's a lip balm.. but it has a really nice sum of 6g of product which is contains the likes of Vitamins A, E, C, Shea Butter and Apple Extract.

The lip balm applies smoothly and can be thick or thin depending on how much you put on. It's not sticky but quite glossy, has a slight pinkish red tint, nicely hydrating. As for smelling like juicy apples it does the sweet kind, although no taste at all, just a very nice smell.

So I'm impressed that the product is just as good in the inside as the looks from the outside, as far as I know there are other flavours to be had like Peach and Lemon.

I got this for around £4.48 including post & packaging on Ebay.

Method Hand Wash in French Lavender

Lavender is a beautiful soothing scent that I have to admit not all brands get it right. I've had products before that say they're scented 'Lavender' but smell like sweet violets or something unexplainable. However I'd like to say that Method got the scent spot on! The scent isn't the strongest but it definitely smells true and not cheap.

Method Hand Washes are packaged in a way that's basic and just not complicated. I'm really liking the tear shaped bottle which looks lovely in the bathroom. There's four different scents to chose from and all of them have scents to reflect the colours. 

I find you only need a small amount to achieve lather quickly and my hands feel really clean after use without drying out my hands which is all good to me. 

The only criticism is that it doesn't contain any anti-bacterial properties hence being Triclosan free as it says on the bottle.

RRP is £2.49 and can be picked up online and at a number of high street retailers.

Jemma Kidd i-tech Liquid Liner in 04 Aesthetic

This i-tech eyeliner from Jemma Kidd certainly is bursting with pigment. I think there is around 5 shades altogether in the line. Unfortunately no black or red shades in the mix.

i-tech liners come in basic but descent packaging, just a normal clear tube with a black lid and a thin arty brush, although it's nice I do prefer a felt tip brush. Of course all Jemma Kidd products are always boxed.

Aesthetic- Is a dark metallic brown with flashes of gold shimmer. Very pigmented in one stroke and it can be really easy to pick up too much product on the brush. A really nice long-lasting liner without any smudges or flaking but there's a small catch...it's quite hard to remove so a really good make-up remover is needed.

RRP is £9.00 but I got mine for £1.99 at FragranceDirect, there's only a few shades on there but I'd like to hunt down some others.

Vampiress Beauty Randomness 37

Mongotas Vainilla 75ml EDT- A gift from Spain and apparently only available in Mercadona Supermarkets in Spain. There's loads more scents in the range too! I wish these scents were available in the UK. This vanilla one is strong, smells of sweet vanilla ice-cream and lasts all day. From what I know these perfumes only cost around 4Euros which is about £3.20, how cheap is that?
Rimmel Eyeful Eye Glistener in 100 Girls Only!- Ordered this from FragranceDirect, since I found one of them at Poundland, I wanted more, yes they would be crease city as a eyeshadow but to accent your eyeliner, perfect! Girls Only is a pink shimmery lilac that flashes gold pearl. I'm tempted to use this on my lips.

Milani Moist Matte Lipstick in 01 Cream Pie- Discontinued from Milani, but still available on Ebay and most probably round the web. Sadly we don't have Milani anyway in the UK. Cream Pie is a warm pink brown that has a faint pearl shimmer. Though it was aiming for matte the pearl makes it satin and does remind me of  MAC Satin finish lipsticks in wear and texture! There is a light fig scent which I don't mind at all. I'd like to find more shades.
