I am thrilled by the sight of colourful, sparkly eyeshadows. I love reading perfume reviews, even though I want to smell perfume before I buy it. If a blogger has reviewed a new lipstick range, I feel kind of like it's Christmas. However, there are some products that I just don't care about. I may not be using the Best Ever version of that product, but I can't be bothered to ruthlessly hunt it down.
only wear foundation because heavy eyeshadow and under-eye concealer
looks really weird on me if I don't have something on the rest of my
face. When I was a teenager, I was obsessed about covering my spots and
freckles, but now I rarely get massive spots and quite like my freckles.
Unfortunately, even the thinnest layer of foundation seems cover to
I have tried four foundations in my life. The
first was a Rimmel stick foundation. I went through several tubes
because they were often on sale for only a few pounds at my local
pharmacy. Then when that supply ran out, I moved onto Stay Matte because
it was the cheapest. Finally, I tried the Cool Matte mousse foundation
in the lightest shade, but it oxidised and went orange just the same.
I was old enough to own a debit card, and I orderedsome samples of Lily
Lolo's foundation. I found a good enough match in 'Porcelain', and
haven't bought another foundation since.
am resolutely pale. I bought a bronzer once, in my teens. I applied it
so sparingly to my face that it didn't show up. I used it as an
eyeshadow a couple of times, then passed it on to my sister.
own four blushers. A light pink one, a really light pink one, a darker
rose one, and a bright almost florescent magenta. This is already two
more than I actually need. I do read reviews of blush, and occasionally I
bookmark one, but every one I like is an almost-dupe for one of the
four I already own. I don't see the point in buying them, so I don't.
love mascara. I always have and always will, but it's just not
exciting. I've yet to find a realy great purple mascara, though I always
have three black mascaras on the go. One that I've had open for a
while, for 'natural' lashes; a newer one,
for when I'm going out; and a double-ender, for when I want extra
found that the brands don't really matter. As long as the mascara is of
the 'volumising' variety, it usually works fine. I really like the
Benefit Bad Gal mascara, but that's only because it is the least clumpy
mascara that I have ever tried. I don't think that it's any more
volumising or black than any other I've tried, but it's so
clump-resistant that I can wear three coats without it looking
ridiculous. I pulled out the stopper on this tiny sample about a month
ago and it's still not really going clumpy. I'm not sure I'll be buying
the full size any time soon, as it's £17.50.
love all types or make-up products, or are there some things that
aren't your cup of tea? Can you get excited over these basic items?
