Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in On and On Bronze

Maybelline isnt a brand I've always cared for, back in the day 'Dream Matte Mousse' was all the rage, I tried it and saw it on every other 14 year old girl and thought that the cake face was ugly and unappealing. It did put me off, but over the past year I've tried a few more products from them which have changed my opinion on them. Here's another thats taken the blogging world by storm!
I'd seen On and On Bronze being mentioned the most, and to be honest Superdrug only had like 4 shades and 2 were pretty basic/boring. So this what we have today! I think this is such a pretty colour that complements most eye colours and would be great for any eye look.
 As you can see it has a bronze,brown and coppery colour, it is shimmery but its not glittery. As soon as you apply these they take like a minute to set then they are on for good. If you swatch these on your hand, you wont get them off scrubbing. No you need a full on makeup remover, luckily Liz Earle cleanse and polish removes it but I doubt a makeup wipe would. You need something strong! Which is brilliant for their purpose, they're suppose to stay for 24 hours (but dont test that theory, remember we must remove our makeup every night...)! I even did the washing up, cleaned makeup brushes, washed my hands, and still its on!
I want more! I love it, either on its own with a full cover, or washed gently in the crease, or as a eyeliner. These are brilliant. Plus their only £5 each, and you get a lot of product too! So when a 3 for 2 is on, these are a steal. Maybelline, I take it all back, one dodgy product did ruin it for me, but you've started to excell yourself. You can buy these from Superdrug and Boots!

Better pictures will resume soon! Sorry about the quality!

MEMEME Seventh Heaven Face Base

 MEMEME have once again presented a brilliant product. Seventh Heaven is a moisturising face base, perfect as a replacement for a moisturiser or day cream and/or instead of a primer. It cuts out the wait of letting a moisturiser sink in and gives you a primed and prep face ready for foundation or even just to face the day. Although I can not say this is my favourite moisturiser ever, I love the idea, and I think this is a perfect prep for summer when thick moisturisers are just too heavy and there is nothing more than a congested face during the summer.
The best thing about this is the consistency, its lightweight and a ligt on the skin too. You need very little for the whole of your face. It is a fresh consistency. It doesnt have the same properties as say a silicone feel primer such as Avon primer or benefit but it does help your foundation stay and keep oil at bay too.
The ultimate best part of this is the smell. It smells exactly like Lilt (for those who dont know, Lilt is a pineapple and lemon fizzy juice drink' and therefore it smells amazing! It has the zesty, lemon scent that is what makes it again great for the summer. 

It hasnt broken me out, and it provides great reasurance all day. I've not used this at night but it is a brilliant alternative to thick moisturisers and since L'Octtiane shea butter will be out of my reach for a few months due to budgets, it what I shall be using for a month or so. Since this is the smaller/sample size I cannot say how long it will last but you dont need a lot and even a sample size is very generous.

All in all its hard to fault because it does exactly what it says on the tin, I just feel used to thick moisturisers, however this does perform well in moisturising and providing a primer.

I am unsure if the price is suited, £15 is a lot for one face base however if you think about it, one primer and moisturiser would be a hell of a lot more and you're getting two in one here. To buy this product you can get it from superdrug stores or from

Have you tried this? Whats your thoughts on it?

MEMEME's products have impressed me again, I only recently wrote about the Godess Rocks which are my favourite shimmery bronzer at the moment but these beauties from MEMEME have again produced a new love in my eyeshadow collection. These pots are cream eyeshadows, use as a base or alone they create a beautiful accomopant for any look. I have four to show you today, each really unique but there will be one to suit any occasion. These are all from the dragonfly collection and feature earthly and natural colours yet still wearable.

As I said I have four to show you, above is Hollow Haze, a beautiful but light shimmery beige. A gorgeous highlight colour and probably the best one to use as a everyday eyeshadow or eyeshadow base if your a natural colour eyeshadow wearer. I often wear this on my brown bone as well as as my eye base. I do feel you need a primer as well as these to make sure they dont crease but this is still a gorgeous colour.
Willow Whisper is this gorgoeus bronze, although it looks quite brown, it features gold and silver reflect shimmers as well as looking natural and brown. Again, another beautiful eyeshadow base and a great everyday colour.
This colour is a bit different from the above two, this is a colour many find a bit hard to work with. Reds can be difficult to use due to there colours looking tired or ill. However, this red/cranberry is definately more purple toned. Autumn Smoulder is the best name you could give this, it is a great 'smudge along the lashline' colour and will excentuate any eye colour.
Lastly is Moonlight Mist a beautiful blue! Again, a gorgeous name for a gorgeous colour. This blue is more navy than first thought but I love this with Autumn Smoulder, and I think using this as a base for a smokey eye gives blue eyes (or any eye colour for that matter) a bright base to work with.
Here are the cream shadows in all there glory swatched with finger. I prefer to use my finger to apply these and occasionally use a eyeliner brush when using them as an eyeliner.  I do however reccomend a primer, as they can crease but they do hold eyeshadow by themselves.

MEMEME Dew Pots are avaliable from Superdrug stores or
and cost £7.25 each!

Cheaper than a MAC Paint Pot, cheaper than a benefit creaseless cream shadow and can be used for so many items, what are you waiting for?
