This month I have splurged so much on makeup! After just finishing my first year of university with exams out the way I felt like I deserved a little treat! My mum was so sweet and bought me the HD powder from Nyx and the Curve eyeliner from Nyx, after months of being desperate for it I took the opportunity of the House of Fraser 10% beauty sale alongside my UNiDAYS 10% off code which allowed me to buy the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation and the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara from Debenhams.
All this splurging made it obvious that I should do a review. After a few weeks of using the products I can say that the money was 100% well spent! I am in love with these products, I have no idea how I survived without them! I can safely say they will be used daily! I used to adore using eyeliner and stopped for a while and completely forgot my technique and the Curve makes it extremely easy to put on eyeliner and making a wing is so much easier than ever before. The liner is such a beautiful solution and it doesn’t run and its not too sticky. I can honestly say I am so much more confident in using eyeliner now because of the Curve from Nyx.
The HD powder from Nyx is another new favourite as it is so different from anything I have ever used before, I am extremely choosy with my powders as my skin can get quite clogged up by powders, I haven’t had any issues with this powder and will definitely be using this on a regular basis. It is a white translucent powder and it disappears into the skin when applied, I have heard that it can cause a white powder finish if used too densely however I only apply a small amount for the problem areas of my face and have found that it has left nothing but flawless looking skin.
Too Faced are well known for the Better Than Sex Mascara, it is a household name in the beauty world and as such had a high reputation to live up to. I have extremely short eyelashes and so never expect much from Mascara, but now that has changed. Using the Better Than Sex Mascara has proven how lifted eyelashes can be using the correct formula, my eyelashes have never looked as long ever and I love doing my eye makeup now! I LOVE this mascara and cant say how much I think every beauty addict should buy this! The best £19 I’ve ever spent.
Unlike Mascara, my foundation has always been extremely important to me as I have extremely patchy skin, my skin is extraordinarily red around my cheeks and nose area, however I have bad allergies to certain foundation products. This makes it important for me to like a foundation and not have break outs from it! Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation is just flawless, it evens out my skin and stops any patchy problem areas. I just adore this foundation, it hasn’t caused any allergies or break outs, my skin has never looked so clear!
I love these products so much and cannot describe how much I urge every beauty addict to buy all of them.
