George Satin Soft Eye Pencil in 06 Bewitched

George have labelled this as just a 'pencil' which could be misleading to some as this a twist up 'mechanical pencil' although once you've picked it up you'll probably know this anyway from the feel. 

George Satin Soft Eye Pencil comes in plain shiny black plastic packaging with a different coloured bottom tip which reflects the colour of the shade you are buying. I think all pencils should have something like this as it's easy to just grab the colour you want without fiddling around especially if you store all your pencils in a jar. The eye liner is quite short in size and has a sharpener located where on coloured end for sharpening the tip. 

Bewitched- A medium lavender pink which has a slight pearl to it. I find the texture not really that creamy but not stiff either and applies nicely without it feeling like it's going to snap. As for the pigmentation it's probably average but the colour is even and can be easily built up depending how lightly you apply it. For the wear it lasted all day for me so I cannot complain. 

RRP £2.75

Barbara Daly Satin Swirl Eyes Eyeshadow in Sequins

Barbara Daly Satin Swirl Eyes come in a variety of 10 shades and I wouldn't say they are a satin finish, although they have subtle shimmer they have very a shiny reflective finish some are as you could say metallic.

I can't believe the intensity of just one swipe of this shadow you have a full pigment swatch and the texture is so light it doesn't even feel like you have eyeshadow on you, just silky skin. I find that when I swivel my brush in the pan there is no loose shadow dust or any fall out whatsoever. 

As for wear I can't speak for this as without a doubt a wear eyeshadow primer, but with this it lasts till I remove it before I go to bed. 

Sequin- A coppery warm pearly brown

If you're looking for a nice pigmented eyeshadow with a comfortable feel and brilliant texture, I'd look no further. I know for sure that I won't hesitate to pick up a few more shades.
I would on the other hand like to some bold brights in this line and maybe some neon or outrageous shades but I think this would be highly unlikely.

RRP is £8.00 which is quite expensive considering Barbara Daly is a Tesco own brand, although I think they are going down the same line with look and prices as Boots No7.

Do look out for offers, Tesco usually have 3 for 2 on Barbara Daly makeup.

ELF Mineral Lipstick in Runway Pink

ELF Mineral Lipsticks come in a variety of shades but all in easy to wear colours, sadly none are outrageous looking from what I can see.

Mineral lipsticks are 100% All-Natural Ingredients, Paraben Free, No Preservatives (There must be because wouldn't it go bad?) and No Chemical Dyes. The lipsticks also contains a blend Exotic Oils, Vitamins, Plant Extracts and Natural Waxes.

Runway Pink- A Pink that's not really a 'Pink' if that makes I don't think it does. A Pink on the Runway? Hmm nope maybe this is what Pink looks like running away because it's more like a nude mannequin looking peachy based lipstick with the tiniest of pink. The colour applies a lot lighter on the lips than what it looks like in the tube and for the finish it's a opaque cream near matte looking lips that do not look or feel dry, although if you do happen to have already dry unconditioned lips that day with this type of colour it will exaggerate them. 

I find that it glides on application with a even finish that has a comfortable moisturising feel. No scent or taste. However it doesn't last long but with this colour and finish it's easy enough to reapply. 

RRP £5.00
