Hello everyone! I hope you have enjoyed your Wednesday! Where I live in the UK the weather has been gorgeous! I have been wanting to sort out my makeup collection for a while now, but I have been super busy with deadlines and keeping up with uni work (why did I think I would be able to blog more and do uni work whilst also working a job?!) Anyway here are all the things I am saying adios to and making more space for more goodies!
Eylure Luxe Collection in the style Opulent
I bought these as they looked super wispy, however the lash band is quite thick making it difficult to apply, especially in the inner corner. I also found that when I wore these they made my eyes really watery. I’ve never had a reaction to lashes before so I have no idea what caused this reaction to just these lashes. I know it’s not the lash glue as I use the same one on other lashes and they don’t irritate my eyes.
Eylure x Cheryl in the style No 114/Flower Girl
This is the old style packaging and they have been very well loved lashes! I am so bad at swapping a pair that’s been used a few times for a new pair. If they still hold their shape and don’t look too worn then they’re getting another use! I love these lashes as they are super easy to apply, look natural but still a little dramatic. They are perfect for pretty much any look in my opinion!
Seventeen Eye Eye Crayon in Molten Metal & Iced
I have had these two for quite a while and never really reach for them, since I have grown my eyeshadow palette collection. I do think these cream shades are pretty but I just don’t reach for them any more.
Soap & Glory Crazy Sexy Kohl in What a Night, Foil in Love, Grapevine and Cocoa Bean
I got these in the Soap & Glory calendar last December and I can’t see myself using these colours.
Sleek Eau La La Liner in Cocoa
This isn’t pictured as I forgot to include it, I have only used it a handful of times but I really don’t like it. I got this as I wanted to try smoking brown liner along my top lash line. However I find this liner to be really difficult to apply, it skips along the skin and applies patchy.
Barry M Holographic Eyeshadow Topper in Star Dust
I did a review on this, which you can check out here, but I found it really irritated my eyes when I applied it. I am just not a fan of it.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Havana
I am a huge fan of the Soft Matte Lip Cream collections but this one is not for me. I bought it as I wanted some different lip colours in my collection, however this one is really patchy when applied on the lips. It swatches nicely on my hand but for some reason it is really patchy.
The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid in Taipei Orchid
This smells really sweet, but I don’t mind it. I have another one of these and the apply really nicely, they don’t last as long as other liquid lipsticks. This shade however I feel really doesn’t compliment me. It looked nice when swatched but it’s too pink for me.
And those are all the things I am getting rid of! I love sorting things out and rearranging my makeup, mixing up what I use daily and rediscover some gems! Thank you so much for reading!
Until next time
