Post Christmas Priceline Haul - Part 2

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome back to part 2 of my Priceline haul, this one is dedicated to lip and eye products. I hope you guys enjoy : )

Rimmel Glam Eyes HD - 002 English Oak

I’ve wanted to try out one of the Rimmel eye shadow quads for quite a while now, and the other day I finally picked one up. With 4 gorgeous colours it allows you to create a variety of eye looks. Whether you’re after some subtle everyday colour or a full blown smokey eye this is a convenient and easy to use palette for everyone. The most amazing thing about this product is that it can be worn dry for a more subtle look and even wet for a more intense high impact look – by simply moistening the brush and placing it in the desired eye shadow. It even includes a sneaky little “how to” guide for the smokey eye on the back – love!

Rimmel Special Eyes Eyeliner Pencil – Black Magic

When it comes to eyeliner pencils, I want an easy, smooth and no fuss application and this one did just that. With a smooth and blendable formula, it glides on easily and can be smudged out to create any look you are going for. Though I don’t 100% completely agree with the 12 hour smudge proof and fade resistant promise, I definitely did not have to touch up as much as I have had to with previous eyeliners I have used. Like the Maybelline Falsies, this too is ophthalmologist tested, which means it won’t irritate eyes. Definitely recommended, if you’re after an effortless and affordable everyday pencil eyeliner.

Maybelline – The Falsies Volum’ Express Washable

After hearing so many amazing reviews about Maybelline’s Falsies, I thought it was about time that I got my hands on a tube of it too. I’m going to start off by declaring that I have quite long natural lashes, so I may not be the best judge when it comes to whether a mascara lives up to its promise, but I can definitely see how this mascara would work wonders for those of you that need that extra oomph when it comes to your eyelashes. The formula contains keratin which means it easily builds up volume on the lashes, without forming a clumpy look. The flexible wand easily coats every lash, fanning them out and creating “300%” fuller looking lashes. The mascara is even ophthalmologist-tested, which means it’s extremely safe for the eyes and even suitable for those of you who wear contact lenses.

Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick – 006 Really Red

I’d be lying to myself if I said I didn't have an obsession with Red Lipstick. I think a red lip can look gorgeous on anyone; you just have to find the right shade for you. I can’t go past a good blue based or true red lipstick; I think they are just absolutely stunning. This Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick is a blue based red, and gives an in between suede and matte finish. When I think of a “matte” lipstick, I envision dry chapped looking lips, with the product settling in the lip creases, but this lipstick glides on smoothly, with a semi matte finish, still providing enough moisture to keep the lips from drying out.

Rimmel Vinyl Max – 151 Devotion

Hello Lips! With the biggest applicator wand I have ever seen, this gloss definitely lives up to its promise of “full coverage high gloss shine in one single stroke”. It also contains plumping properties which means with one simple swipe your lips will become bigger and better than before. I'm not promising Angelina lips or anything but they’ll definitely be plumber and fuller looking. If you’re anything like me and constantly find yourself reaching for your “go to” everyday lipgloss, then this would be absolutely perfect for you.

Please feel free to leave any comments or questions below, that you may have about the products. I’d love to hear from you !
