GETS ► eyeshadows, lipgloss and brushes

Urban Decay Lip Love Honey Infused Lip Therapy in ‘Failbait’.

I’m sorry, but if you say something tastes like honey, you can expect me to buy every single one I can afford. But I managed to resist that and only buy the one with my favourite name – Failbait. Though it’s bright orange in the tube, it’s very sheer on, and – a major selling point for me – when I swatched this on my hand, the gloss melted into my hand instead of being a sticky nightmare when I rub it off.

And out of the packaging! You can see the orange even in the crappy lighting of my room/weird yellow tinge of my camera.

L’Oreal Colour Infallible Pressed Eyeshadow in ‘Permanent Kaki’.

I actually try not to buy L’Oreal, because I’m trying to slowly phase out brands that test on animals. It’s a slow process, but the L’Oreal side was quite easy (because none of their products appeal to me) until these went on offer at £3.99 at Superdrug. I just bought the one because none of the other shades really appealed to me quite as much. But I’ve seen so many swatches of this eyeshadow range and so much raving about it. I guess we’ll see if I agree with them!

Chilli Pepper Eyeshadow Palette in Warm.

With Boots having their leftover Christmas stock on sale for half price, I ended up wandering about the place and looking over. This palette immediately caught my eye. I have reservations about buying Christmas palettes like this, because I think we all know how the quality of Christmas palettes can go. But since it was only £4, I can forgive it being crap if it is.

Fearne double ended Make Up Brush set.

Another sale buy. This was £8. I can say now the zip was the dumbest idea, because it’s too short to get the face brushes out easily. I’ve already experienced some shedding with them, as well as the horror that is the so called lip brush end. But aside from those problems, the brush set actually seems quite useable. I certainly prefer the face brushes to the eye/lip brushes, even if they were the most prone to shedding.

And the brushes themselves. L – R: Lip/Eyeshadow? (god I am really not sure tbh) brush | Angled Blusher/Normal Blusher brush | Short Shader/Fluffy Shadow brush | Foundation/Powder brush  | Angled Liner/Pencil Smudge brush
