Dirty Sexy Eyes : MAC 'Uninterrupted' + Bobbi Brown Camel Eyeshadows : Review + Photos + Swatches

This is where sexy comes to die. Not joking - I would even skip the primer so that by the end of the day you get a slight glossy creased effect. These earthy tones are possibly the easiest eye in the universe. All you need is a little brown liner smudged into the lash lines, a healthy helping of mascara  and you're set. This is the perfect time to embrace your dark pigmented eyelids as it just adds to the overall look, almost as if you've taken five extra steps.

So beauty guru or not - I urge you to try this type of one eyeshadow look, doesn't have to be these particular shadows, even a dark bronzer will do the trick, just have it packed on the lid and blended into nothingness by the crease/brow bone. 
Both Bobbi's and MAC's version have good smooth pigmentation, Bobbi's being a touch smoother but nothing to be angry about. But you do get about 1g more product from MAC against Bobbi's standard 2.5g

What's your definition of sexy?

The Paw Palette 'Magnetic' : Review + Photos & Swatches

The Paw Palette 'Magnetic': I know I’m not a makeup artist in need of a makeup palette - but it does come in handy for sloppy people like me getting foundation all over the place. Of all the makeup palettes, these comes in ample shapes and sizes, magnetic or not - these are sturdy, well made and convenient to strap onto your wrist, palm or the back your hand. It’s perfect for thinning foundations, mixing cream bases, especially if a pan is on the smaller side - it can be difficult to use larger brush. 
Do you think palettes like these are necessary?

Chanel Le Lift | Review & Photos

Huda Kattan AKA HudaBeauty turned me onto this guy. She raved about it saying it dramatically changed the appearance of her skin, specifically her pores etc. So as you can imagine I'm off trotting to the store to buy it - well that's not really how it happened. In my opinion I think you can safely buy expensive skincare and cosmetics if unopened and sealed on platforms such as eBay. Look at the seller and if reputable I don't think there's much harm. I do enquire as to expiration dates and so forth for added benefit.  I think too, that's why I'm able to be more positive with the review because I only ended up paying around £45 for it. 

I've now used this cream on and off for about a year. I bought the 'Riche' version out of the three as my skin is extremely dry and needs a lot of moisture. I must say it is intensely moisturising, has a pleasant smell and is currently in my rotation for night creams. Unfortunately I have to leave the anti-aging concept out of my review as I am still in my early twenties, although I have seen a slight reduction in the size of my pores around my nose/cheek area. 

I like that it is a well concocted skincare product and feels like a cream should, plus it is not too heavily fragranced. I shiver at the thought of using silicone laden products as primary skincare. However I have since found moisturising creams I prefer such as the Bobbi Brown Moisturising Balm & Aesop's Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream. If you'd like to hear about them please let me know. 

Nonetheless, come 30s and 40s I may well purchase Le Lift once more to see the anti ageing effects as it delivers on making my skin feel plump, supple and soft.
