So here we go again with another round of products I’ve been loving, products I’ve not been keen on and one product that I don’t really care about either way.
Fave – My Owl earrings! These were dirt cheap in a set from Claire’s Accessories. There isn’t a lot to say, they aren’t exactly great quality but I love owls. I also like the fact that these guys look a little angry. I need more owl things...
Fail – Veet High Precision Facial Wax. No sniggering in the back, we are all adults here. Whilst I’m not the hairiest of ladies I do have pale skin and dark hair which means the inevitable RED TACHE OF SHAME (i.e. the red marks left after waxing). I thought this might be an improvement on the normal wax strips I use but either I’m an idiot or this does not work. It didn’t seem to matter what temperature I got the wax too it just didn’t stick properly. I tried it three times then gave up and threw it away (hence me having to use a stock photo). What a waste of £7.22!
Fave – ELF Mineral Concealer. I am not ashamed to say that I did not really like this in my original review but.... drum roll..... I was wrong. I just didn’t really have a use for it back then. Since my Maybelline Dream Mousse concealer ran out last month I’ve been using up some concealers (for the face, not under eye) that I’m not overly keen on. They have too much slip and not enough coverage. Until I pop this over the top! This adds some extra coverage and keeps the concealer in place all day. Win!
Fail – My foundation not matching. I gain colour really easily despite using a lot of SPF, I also walk a lot so I spend a fair bit of time in the sun. The result is that nothing quite fits at the moment. My winter foundations are all too pale, the rest are all too dark. I’m having to mix constantly!
Fave – My current favourite lip combo is Sleek Pout Paint in Mauve Over with a little Models Own Fuchsia-Full lip balm on top. It is absolutely bullet proof, lasts for hours on end and the colour just makes me smile J
Meh - John Frieda Precision Foam hair dye. Yes it is super easy to use. Yes it covered well with no patchiness and the colour is gorgeous. But, and it’s a big but, I will forever remember those 20 minutes as THE MOST FRUSTRATING TIME I HAVE EVER SPENT ON THIS EARTH. A billion tiny foamy bubbles all popping on your scalp *shudder*. You can’t scratch your scalp. No. You just have to sit there and take it. It was so ticklish and horrible. I felt like I had a million insects crawling through my hair... So I’m not convinced that the lovely result was worth the aforementioned discomfort.
