So I may have spent a little too much on pay day (and even managed to con my boyfriend out of some beauty treats too) and so I thought I would give some first impressions of these beauties. A couple were featured in my previous post, so I’ll try not to ramble too much about those (I’m making no promises!)
So as I have already talked about them, I’ll keep my mention of the Better than Sex Waterproof Mascara by Too Faced, and the Soft Matte Lip Cream (19. Cannes) by Nyx, short and sweet. Both are very high quality products and definitely worth the price. Both products have also left me eager to try the rest of their line, so with Nyx, I want to try more shades and different lip products, just to see if the high quality is company wide. The mascara has actually opened me up to the world of Too Faced products, and I must admit that I am in love and hoping to try so much more – especially the melted lipsticks, they look and smell amazing!! I have however found the mascara to look a little clumpy, as the brush holds so much product, but that might just be me and my foolish ways.
Down to business.
Maybelline are wowing me so much lately; I decided to try a new concealer and by accident/ in a rush found their FIT me! concealer, which I tried in shade 10, and wow! It’s application is simple and it gives a really good coverage, whilst also brightening the under eyes and giving an “awake” look. It also doesn’t feel too heavy and blends nicely, which is always a bonus! As their little counter in my local Tesco had a little 2 for £10 deal, I decided to also try some on their Baby Skin, Instant Pore Eraser. Again I was really impressed. You can wear this under foundation as a primer, or without any other products for smoother natural looking skin. So far I have only tried this under my foundation but I really like it, there are instant results and again it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It is easy to apply and seems to last throughout the day! A little later on I went back and bought the Colour Show Matte top coat, and shock…I was so impressed! So impressed that I went home and painted each of my nails with different polishes and colours just to see how well it worked..which was incredible. So Maybelline, I salute you and your such high quality yet affordable prices!

Side Note: I apologise for such poor quality in my nail painting. I’m working on it, I promise!
