All About The Skin

Hey beauties! Now today I thought I’d talk about something we all have, Skin. Now I recently wrote a post titled, All about the nails. So I thought I’d do a similar one on the skin, again, I hope I don’t bore you to death!

Review | ELF Shimmer Eyeliner

Hey beauties! Today I shall be reviewing the ELF Shimmer Eyeliner Pencils which I got in my recent ELF haul.   Price Each liner cost just £1.50 which is next to nothing. I got these from the ELF website with free shipping. That’s the good thing with ELF, they’re always coming out with different codes which allow you free shipping, free gifts, etc, etc. Oh and the fact that they are extremely cheap is awesome too! Packaging The packaging is your basic liner, with a sharpener attached to the lid. Now I’m not a fan of it. Once you sharpen them,…

Review | ELF Eyelid Primer

Hey beauties! Today I shall be reviewing the ELF Eyelid Primer… Okay, so you’ve all probably heard of ELF, I’m a huge fan and not long ago I placed an order with them. In my recent haul I purchased the ELF Eyelid Primer in Pearl.

I particularly like the fact that the colour Sheer comes in a clear tube so you can see how much product is left, I don’t understand…

Review | Vivo Smoky Moods Eye Kits

Hey beauties! Another review for you guys, today the turn of Vivo’s Smoky Moods Eye Kit…   Have you heard of Vivo? Well they’re a budget beauty range, they are stocked in Tesco stores and they now have an online shop where you can purchase lots of cosmetics, from eyeshadows to lippies, all at a low, affordable price. Anyway, back to the review… Packaging Right, each palette comes with three eyeshadows and a liquid eyeliner. The packaging is very sleek and simple, but it doesn’t make the product feel cheap. It’s sturdy and on the back comes some handy little tips to creating…
