December Makeup Empties

The third post of my empties involves makeup products. Can you believe I have finished all of these?! Technically there are a few disappointing products that I am chucking away but most of them as you can see are properly empty things.

Eyeko Fat Brush Mascara – a mascara that did nothing to my lashes. If you like no makeup makeup maybe this one is for you but even if I have very minimal makeup on I want my lashes to stand out so I want my mascara to work for me. I think I am never going to get another Eyeko mascara as I have always been disappointed with them.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – one of my favourite concealers. It’s an amazing product and very affordable. I will for sure get this again.

Eylure Brow Pencil in Dark Brown – I love this eyebrow pencil. It’s hard but not too hard, does not drag on your skin and leaves enough product. It has a spooly on another end so you always have something to brush your brows with. The pencil has lasted quite long so if you want to buy something that you don’t need to re-purchase too quickly then I recommend this brow pencil.

Essence Brow Gel – one of my faves! I will dedicate a post for this product on it’s own. It’s that good!

Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner – A great eyeliner, easy to use and is jet black matte.

Gosh Lip Oil – a very interesting lip moisturiser. I’m not sure how hydrating it really was but I loved the texture of the product and kept using it up just because of that.

Bodyshop Honey Bronze Drops – I really liked using this in summer. Not sure if it did give me much of a bronzed look but then I did use it all up, so maybe it did do what it was saying it would?

L’Oreal Slim Line Eyeliner – I liked this felt tip eyeliner, it was black, stayed well on my eyes and very easy to use.

EX1 Invisiwear Foundation in F100 – this is one of my favourite foundations and I wore it on my wedding day. I already have another tube of this magic in my stash.

L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist – a good highstreet makeup fixing mist. Good choice when on a budget which I normally am on.

Vichy Dermablend Translucent Powder – I cannot believe that I have used this up. Has anyone ever used up a big tub of translucent powder? I enjoyed using this and even more happy that I have finished it (only because I want to try other things)

L’Oreal Miss Hippy Mascara – one of my most favourite mascaras. It makes your lashes voluminous and dark. This was my mascara choice for my wedding and I need another tube of this goodness. I need to dedicate a post to this mascara.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – I have gone through multiple tubs of this. I use it for spot concealing or when the foundation did not cover enough of my rosacea and I need to add some more coverage for some parts of my face.

Becca Eye Brightening Corrector – I was given this by my friend as she found it did not cover her dark circles enough. I had quite high hopes for this product but I did not like it at all. It’s sticky and thick but not in a good way, it does not correct the blue circles and it makes any concealer crease which does not happen to me normally. It’s not worth the money or the effort in my opinion.

L’Oreal Nude Cushion Foundation – I have finished this quite quickly. I think I will write a separate post on this foundation so wait for my full review.

Phew, I don’t think I have ever managed to finish that many makeup products around the same time. I wonder if I bought them all around the same time and if that’s the case then maybe I should cap in my makeup hoarding….. Emmm… Yeah, not going to happen.





Eyeko liners – is it worth it?

A long long time ago I have tried Eyeko eye liners. If you follow beauty blogs then you know that the brand is quite well known and if you don’t then I will attempt to give you my quick view on their Skinny Liquid Eyeliners.

I do have to admit that I am no expert on liquid eye liners and I am probably not the best person on doing them. But then if you don’t try you don’t succeed, isn’t that right? Anyways, Eyeko liners originally were my first products that I have tried for lining my eyes and attempting some sort of a flick. The first time I have tried their Skinny Liquid liner in Black I was quite impressed. The pen nib was not too thin or too thick and I was very pleased to use the liner until it has dried out. The Skinny Liquid liner left a good impression in my head and after using a few other liners from other brands I thought that I should get back to Eyeko offering. So the second time I got myself two liners from the brand, one black one and one navy one. However, my first impression has been completely shattered after the second round of using Eyeko liners.

Firstly, I thought that the navy one will be sort of off black colour, I imagined that it would be a deep dark blue and that I would still be able to use it with any look. But the liner was very much true blue than super dark one and I just could not use it.

My second go at the Skinny liners was after trying other products from other brands and this just showed me that the product is far from perfect. I felt that the pen nib is actually a little bit too short so mastering the flick was not that actually easy, the liner would start wearing off past half days mark and I felt like it’s actually not that outstanding as I thought it originally to be.

All I will say that now I will not try them again. I don’t think there ever will be a third go.

If you want to try liquid eye liners Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner is an ok product but for the price that it is sold for I would say there are better ones on the high street.

Have you tried the Skinny Liquid liner? What are your thoughts about it?
