Beauty Bargains

Today has been windy, rainy and a bit miserable. So imagine my excitement to come home to find my Illamasqua order!

I love a good makeup sale (who doesn't?!) But there were some unmissable goodies i just couldn't possibly miss out on!!


First I purchased the Embellish Eye Trio, which contains brow gel, cream eyeshadow in Embellish and Gel liner in infinity (Black).

Now bear in mind a single Gel liner is £18.50, this trio had 50% off it was £24.50. Still available on the Illamasqua site if you fancy it!

So I had to have a play!


The camera doesn't do it justice, but the cream eyeshadow is absolutely stunning, it has gold glitter in it and so far is definitely creaseproof (my lids are a bit sweaty haha!!)

I absolutely love the liner, gives a precise and totally black finish.

And the brow gel (careful not to overdo it) gives a natural finish to fill the brows.


My next purchase was the sealing gel for £7, this promises to transform any powder into a water-resistant, long-lasting liquid eyeliner in seconds. After reading the reviews all 5*, I had to give it a go. 

I tried it with a cheaper eyeshadow (I wasn't going to go straight in with my Dior :/), but I shouldn't have feared! I tried it on the lighter shade first and used this all over the lid, it works perfectly for a creaseproof shadow, then used it with a slightly darker shade for the liner.


It's absolutely brilliant, you only need a tiny drop. It gives a creamy texture to the shadow making it so easy to apply and best of all doesn't affect the shadow underneath. I see why it had so many rave reviews, I will be using this a lot!

Chuffed to bits with my new arrivals, get yourself on the web and check out the sales, always worth it!
