Review; Inglot Gel Liner

Feast your eyes on this baby. Inglot Gel Liner 77. This is the blackest liner in the world. It's 100% waterproof, and does not budge.
Did I mention it's safe for the water line? ;)

This my personal one, I have 3 for my kit,2 black ones and  1 brown one. All my clients have commented on HOW black this is, and how it was still there the morning after their night out. (Bold! :) ) 

It's a great consistency to work it, not to thin, not too thick. Perfect. The only downside, it does dry out quite quickly, but this is solved by popping some Duraline into it. Also available from Inglot for €10. 

I've inserted a picture of myself wearing it, its just so black, can't say enough good things about this liner. I prefer it to Bobbi Brown Gel liner, it knocks it out of the park!! 

Oh, and it's only €15 ;)

Review: Real Techniques Stippling Brush

Sorry about the ridiculous delay!! Extremely busy week!! 

Behold, my lovlies. Real Techniques Stipling Brush. This line was brought out by Samantha Champan of Pixiwoo. If you don't know who she is, look her up. You won't be disappointed!

Onto the brush, this brush is made of synthetic taklon bristles. It blends powders & creams into the skin like a dream. It's quite dense so it creates an airbrushed finish to the skin. 

I have 3 of these,  2 for my kit and 1 for myself. My clients always ask me about this brush, and the real techniques range, they comment on how soft these are. They are a professional brush band, made accessible to all. 

Sam, you made a cracker of a brush here! Another must have! 

This is available from Boots stores for around €13.


What I've Been Loving Recently

These products have been floating around my makeup bag for a while now, getting a lot of love from myself and clients!

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Light Year: This is from the Heavenly Creatures collection, it's a gorgeous pinky colour shot through with gold. It's marketed as a highlighter, but it works better as a blush on me.

Benefit Porefessional: This stuff is the shiz. It's a silicone based primer which fills pores and makes them disappear. A must have if you've open pores.

NARS Copacbana Illumiator: I just adore this. It's a liquid lighlighter. It gives quite a high shine, oh it's just beautiful. Can be used for day and night time!

NARS Deep Throat Blush: Bought this on a whim, and boy I'm glad I did. It's a gorgeous day time look, it's like NARS Orgasm toned down. If you thought Orgasm was too much, this is your man!

Inglot Matte Gel Liner 77: I can't put into words how much I love this gel liner. It's 100% waterproof, and the blackest liner I've ever come across. I've gone to the gym with this on, sweated buckets and this is still there, perfect. It doesn't budge. Well worth an investment!

MAC Omega e/s: I've been using this through my brows recently, it just looks so natural. I didn't think I loved it that much until I noticed I've made a dint in the pan. Great colour for blondes!

Real Techniques Stippling Brush: This is the holy grail of stippling brushes for me. It buffs product into the skin like no other. It's so soft too. Just, wow! :)

Back to the Aul Reliable's!

We're all on the constant look for the "Holy Grail" foundation, I thought I'd found tthe one, but alas, I seem to have gotten paler as the summer went on. (.... I know!)

So I reverted back to an old reliable. Revlon Colour Stay. This stuff id the business for oily/combo skin. And it goes super pale, like moi!

Revlon Colour Stay In Ivory

In the picture, you can see how pale it is. Lovely natural matte finish. Lasts all day. Says 24 hour wear, I won't be one to test this! Ick! :) 

Love it! :)
