Anyway, so over the month I've purchased a few (the word is few here....lol!) products and have been testing a few things too. Some products were good, others were hm... let's say I gave them a shot, and now I know...!
So here are a few of the stuff I purchased from blushcosmetics ...
W7 eyeshadow palette
This was a huge bargain find. At £6.99 how could I possibly not purchase it and not give it a shot? I looked at the colours and I thought, the colours are wonderful because they are mainly the colours I would use. A total of 77 colours divided from warm colours to cool shades.
I haven't actually took a picture of the colour swatch, but I have been using it a couple of occassions already.
I have to say, I never really noticed that I've been using W7's silky eyes eyeshadow, comparing the two type, silky eyes definitely is more pigmented and stays on better. However, with this palette, the colours do blend very well, and it maybe easier to use your fingers to apply than the applicators or brushes if you want the colours to be more defined.
Would I purchase another W7 palette or eyeshadow? Well, no. Their silky eyes collection, maybe. Although, to be fair if I use an eye primer before using the eyeshadows it may go along much better.
W7's Light Diffusing Concealer
This is a miss. Even though it was only £3.99, I still think it's a waste. The concealer itself seems really oily to me, so it almost gives me no coverage. I don't really have dark circles under my eyes as such, but on a tired day when I want to brighten my eyes a tad, it really doesn't do it's job. So this is when you tell yourself, bargains, not really bargains if they become useless.
I'm on the hunt for a good concealer at the moment. In the meantime, I use Maybelline's stick concealers, they are thick which is why they give such good coverage, though sometimes I think they might be blocking my pores too much. So the hunt is on!
Lastly on blushcosmetics, I bought this...
Salon System's Spot Treatment serum
Guess how much this was?....£1!!! Again, I thought, why not!? I have really bad breakouts, and here I thought teen years have long gone, but it seems like the spots are staying! How sad.
So anyway, over the years I've tried a lot of spot fighting products. So this would be one of them. IT DOESN'T WORK! Hence the price. =___="
It does make you feel like it works but it does nothing, my spot became more aggressive if anything. I went back to using my Garnier spot roller, and it calmed down. I've stopped using this spot treatment, not knowing what to do with it anymore. *sigh*
Other than these products, I took advantage of the 3for2 for Revlon offer in Boots and adding to my Revlon collection (as you might have seen my second video, I have a Revlon collection. I do have some respect for this drugstore brand).
Revlon: Nail Polish in Lilac Pastelle, Lipglosses in Coral Reef + Peach Petal
I'm not a fan of Revlon's nail polishes, they almost always streaks! Effort and a half to apply them! I really think the company should think about the consistency of their nail polish. No doubt they were never going to replace my love for Barry M's nail polishes. However, I really do like this year's Revlon S/S'10 collection, and the colours for their nail polishes are actually much better than the one's seen for Barry M.
The lipglosses I am in love with. They keep my lips moist, and they come in amazing colours.
I'm having a small obsession with coral colours this season (be it eyeshadows or lip colours), coral reef in this case was just what I need for a lipgloss.
These lipglosses also don't smell (or taste) chemical-ly unlike some drugstore products. Despite this, I can't really smell anything just now, my nose at 4:30am, is a bit blocked. lol! But I've never really thought the taste or smell had bugged me.
Ok, finally, my last product is an eyebrow pencil...
Bloom's retractable eyebrow pencil in medium brown
This is the very first eyebrow product I've ever bought, otherwise I really only use eyeliners to draw my brows on - to be honest, I'm quite a hairy person, therefore, my brows grow really quick so somedays it doesnt even matter if I don't draw my brows on.
But I felt the need to my eyebrows properly, and thus I bought this. I haven't tried other eyebrow products to compare or make a review of this, but if you want, I think this is a convenient one. I would probably purchase a manually-sharpened pencil the next time though, because it will give a even easier way to draw my brows, more defined.
And pfffft this thin pencil costed me £9!!! So no thanks for a re-purchase!
So that's me for this post. I've bought a few other things, but I'm still testing them and I've decided to dedicate a video for them instead seeing how I've also not been updating my channel recently (I'm telling you it's such an effort making videos if you are a person like me! -lazy and inherits a whispering-like voice although! I think it's the camera's fault for the volume matter. grrrr)
Anyhow, I'm try and update more later. I'll be in Belfast on 31/5-3/6 so I'll do a post on my trip since I've never been to Belfast before! I'm so excited in case you are wondering! =]
