January is done and dusted. What an awful month! I'm not one to put a downer on a FriYAY but the first month of 2017 has been pretty rubbish: bad news in the family, Trump making whacky decisions, being overloaded with Uni work and the occasional spot (yawn). But I'm not letting anything get me down- life's too short. Here are some products I have been loving over the last month...
Staple and hands down the best eye makeup remover I have ever bought. I have been using this for years and it has never let me down. It's affordable and removes mascara, eye makeup and brow products. I tip a bit onto a cotton pad and hold it over my eye/ brown and then wipe a few times then repeat on the other eye. You will need another cotton pad for your brows.
ZOEVA Caramel Melange Palette | £18 (similar)
Meet the newest member of my eye palette family. The Caramel Melange palette is the limited edition one that sells out straight away. I have been using it on the weekends and although it doesn't include any dark shades like I always wear, it's great for trying new looks you know will turn out fab. I think it's affordable and the shadows themselves are pigmented to the max and are beautiful colours.
After eyeing this bad boy up for a few months, I decided to spend my Boots points on it and I am so glad I did. This brush is the ultimate tool for brows as it can brush through them and then can apply a pomade/ gel/ wax/ powder. The application side of the brush is small and can create whatever look you fancy. What a versatile tool!
Hanxrenee goes on about this product so much and whenever she primes her eyes with it, I always admired the nice, clean base she was able to apply her shadows too. So I caved. I picked up the Paint Pot and do not regret it. It's better than the Urban Decay eye primer that I am used to although you need a brush to apply it, the finish after shadows is brilliant.
I am sometimes weary of large wanted mascaras incase they clump up my lashes. But the Soap and Glory one doesn't do this at all. I like to apply it after I have curled my lashes and although I wouldn't agree with the volume (I don't think it lengthens them greatly) it makes them very thick and very dark.
