Welcome to my Blog!

Bring on either one of my proudest achievements or one of my biggest blogging flops - we shall see! The first ever tag idea I have had sprang to mind recently and so I thought I'd give it a shot - if only one person does it then it's pretty successful to me. 

The idea behind it stems from product reviews - I find writing them to be a total pain in the bum and sometimes they seem so long, when the whole content of it could have been condensed to about a third and still say the exact same thing. So, basically...

  • List your favourite makeup products and describe why you like them in 5 words.
  • At least one product for each category: Eyes, Lips & Face 
  • Phrases such as 'high coverage' count as one word - if you were just to say 'high' it would be pretty vague and so use a phrase where you see fit, another example being 'Long Lasting' being one word. 
  • When you've finished the tag, tag 5 other people to take part! Let them know that they've been tagged, too. 


Maybelline the Falsies Mascara - flared, non-clumpy, voluminous, separates, long lasting

Collection Fast Stroke Eye Liner - pigmented, easy (to apply), budget, long lasting, versatile brush

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette - expensive, pigmented, good lasting power, pink neutrals, beautiful (sorry, I couldn't think of a fifth. I know that 'beautiful' probably isn't very helpful)

Revlon Matte Balm Stains - easy to apply, drugstore, matte, long lasting, lot drying

Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick - matte, slightly drying, budget, VERY long lasting, pretty shade selection 

(Yeah, I really do like matte lips)

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in 'Nudist' - "your lips but better", glossy, moisturising, everyday lip, not Sticky

Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation - medium/high coverage, not drying, long lasting, illuminating,

MUA Powder Blush - budget (Only £1!), pigmented, long lasting, easy to wear, err...ideal starter product!

Bourjois Bronzing Primer - multi-purpose, contour, to darken foundation, glowing skin, not orange.

What do you think? I tag anybody who wants to do this to do it - It's a whole lot of fun! Also surprisingly difficult to explain why I like the products that I do like. It's so tempting to write 'it's just good!!'.
