Hey Everyone!

Hello 2015! I just realised that this will be my first blog post of 2015. Woot! Today I thought I would try and do the classic smokey eyes and nude lips look. All celebs are sporting it on the red carpet and it’s just one of those never out of fashion styles. Personally, I never wear nude lips out. I always think I look half dead so this was for sure something that made me a little uncomfortable. You’re also probably used to seeing me in bright reds and fuchsias so I thought this would be a great change (not to mention experimental progress for me!). My chosen weapon of choice is Brigitte cosmetics.

Today I just wanted to let you in on a pretty cool eyeliner find – the Sephora Smart Liner! Unlike your regular pen shapes, this one is bent and is supposed to follow the curve of your hand so that it feels like you have more control. I’ve basically finished mine and I reckon it would be perfect for beginners. Let’s find out more!

First of all, this is my eye without any eyeliner. I’ve added some eyeshadow because I don’t normally go out the house without any on.

When you pop the cap open, the tip of the eyeliner is actually like a sharp felt tip marker. It in fact is very similar to the Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner. I’m glad it is because brush tips are not suitable for beginners because they can be harder to control whereas a felt tip is much more user friendly.

Lancôme launches a new mascara today – the Lancôme Grandiôse Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara! I was given this mascara to review pre-launch and I only had time to do it today so I thought I would instead voice out my honest first impressions of it. This mascara is where  Lancôme really bends rules because there’s a unique twist to it.

If you haven’t heard of this mascara yet, the Lancôme Grandiôse Wide Angle Fan Effect Mascara boasts the ability to do all three most prized effects – lengthen, curl and volumize. Lancôme has come up with the 1st patent pending “Swan Neck” wand that helps to access all lashes from corner to corner, offers full lash coverage from root to tip and produces an evenly fanned out lash fringe. The formula of the mascara is also innovative in that it is enriched with Lancôme’s exclusive Native Rose-Cell Extract.

I’ve been getting used to using an eyebrow pencil lately and have been really liking the strong brow look. I usually use an eyebrow powder but at times I feel that it can’t do super sharp lines and it’s pigmentation is obviously lacking too. It’s good as a natural brow but for something with a little kick, I’ve been using a pencil. Probably the most popular eyebrow pencil is a particular one from M.A.C called Spiked. I’ll be doing a little tutorial on how easy strong brows can be!

First of all, the M.A.C Spiked Eye Brows Pencil is pretty amazing. It comes as a thin pencil that is thankfully automatic so you don’t have to sharpen it. It also has quite a narrow tip so that drawing specific lines is quite convenient. Spiked is a chocolate brown that is quite dark and more suitable for very dark brown to black hair tones. Although it’s really whatever floats your boat. A general rule of thumb is that your brows should be no more than 1 or 2 shades lighter than your hair color.

Today I’m going to be doing a review and tutorial of a gorgeous eye palette – the Lancome Hypnose Palette Star Eyes in Brun Au Naturel! I have been loving this lately and I also have another shade in Taupe Au Naturel. They give the prettiest and most naturally enhancing eye looks in a simple compact form that is easy to carry to work or wherever you’re headed!

The palette boasts an innovative “wet” eyeshadow technology that allows the shadow to have a range of intensities with a multi dimensional and even texture! They’re pigmented and although they have matte shades, they aren’t chalky which is really important. The palette comes with 5 colors that you can use for day to night make-up and two types of applicators which do come in handy on the go.

Today, I’m going to be doing a review on the NEW Shu Uemura Caligraph:Ink Eyeliner. You’ve probably spotted it at basically every Shu Uemura counter and when I first saw it, being an eyeliner addict, I wanted to have it. To be honest, I was expecting this to be the a really good eyeliner. Shu Uemura happens to have very high quality products and almost all of them I’ve tried so far hasn’t at all been disappointing so when I got my hands on this, I really couldn’t wait. And I am happy to tell you write off the bat, that it’s a pretty good eyeliner.
