Swatch – Purple Light

I’m back with another review for you Today. Yesterday I went a little crazy in Boots, and brought quite a lot of stuff that I probably don’t need; I just can’t resist a 3 for 2 offer. Something that really caught my eye was this lovely purple liner and after I swatched it on my hand I had to buy it. Read my review below.

The Maybelline Master Drama Chromatics Liners are described by Maybelline as creamy pencils saturated with electric colour pigments, that will last up to 16 hours on the eyes. The liner should glide on easily and make your eyes pop.

I’ve never really experimented with coloured liner and always tend to stick to neutrals, however this season I feel like changing up my makeup a little and thought coloured liner would be a great look for the Summer. I picked up the Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic Liner in Purple Light, which is a gorgeous dark purple shade. I thought about buying the bright Turquoise colour too but decided to give this a go first. I absolutely love this product. The liner is incredibly easy to apply and is super creamy and pigmented. It stays on all day, which I didn’t expect from this as its a very soft liner. It looks as though it would smudge but doesn’t. The shade is perfect for accentuating my brown eyes and really enhances them. The colour isn’t as bright as others in the range but is perfect if you want to try out coloured liner subtly. I will definitely be picking up some of the other colours, the gold and turquoise shades would look amazing together, especially with a tan.

This liner has become one of my favourite beauty items and I would recommend to everyone. There only £4.49 at Boots, pick yours up now while they still have the 3 for 2 deal! Have you tried these eyeliners? What do you think of coloured eye makeup? Please leave comments below.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss Review

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me post an image of these lip glosses with some other new L’Oreal products recently. I promised you a review and here it is. Sorry it’s taken me so long to write this post. Continue reading for my thoughts on this lip product.

The L’Oreal Mega Glosses are described as a “no compromise gloss” that will give a high level of shine to the lips, leaving you with a glossy looking pout without the sticky feeling. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, the formula hydrates the lips whilst providing long-lasting and intense colour.

Of the many finishes to choose from, I picked up 2 shades from the matte collection. Amen, which is a gorgeous pinky-nude shade (you may have seen it in my perfect nude combination post) and Forgive My Sin, a classic, bright red colour that’s perfect for my skin tone. The glosses are comfortable to wear and are not sticky on the lips. The matte formulation isn’t drying unlike many other matte lip products, although I’m unsure if it actually moisturises the lips. The gloss seems to last around 3 hours, which is great staying power for this type of product. Other glosses tend to disappear off the lips after about an hour. Dissimilar to other products of this category, this lip gloss has a contoured wand that perfectly hugs the lips. It spreads the product evenly across the lips and easily helps to define the cupids bow.

I would definitely recommend these lip glosses. I really want to try out some of the other formulas now, the cream and dazzle finishes look amazing. At only £6.99 you can’t go wrong. Boots are currently running a 2 for £12 offer on L’Oreal products, so now is a great time to try them out.

Have you tried these glosses? Which formulation is your favourite? Please leave comments below.
