I recently did a bit of a Boots Beauty Haul which you can read about >>here<< Of everything I purchased only 2 of the products were repurchases the L’Oreal Paris Paradise Extatic Mascara and the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lipsticks in shades: Coral Sass and Pink Bliss. Two of my makeup bag staples.
All the other products were brand new to me, and I wanted to get stuck in asap. I had high hopes and expectations and as I sat putting each of the products on my face before heading off to work I thought it would make for a good first impressions post! So here it is my first impressions makeup look.
L’Oreal Superliner Tattoo Signature Eyeliner – I already own a slimline version which is beaut, and I was kind of fearful of the chunky nib however it was super easy I needn’t have worried. I’m no pro at eyeliner however these L’Oreal by Superliner eyeliners are just foolproof with their felt-tip like nib making them super easy to use and apply. It lasted all day, didn’t bleed and has great pigmentation.
Miss Baby Roll Mascara – I’ve read so many rave reviews about this mascara I had high expectations so how did it fair? Well, I wouldn’t exactly say it adds ‘Volume’ but it does separate the lashes nicely and leave them looking longer and it doesn’t hold a curl all that well either, but for an everyday mascara for a wide eyed natural look I can’t complain. The L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara is my benchmark and unfortunately this mascara did fall short for me however it is still a nice mascara.
Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in shade Voyager – They weren’t joking when they branded this liquid lipstick Super Stay! I love the creamy, quick drying formula, high pigmentation and beautiful matte finish but can we just take a moment to appreciate the durability of this lipstick; I tried micellar water and cleansing oil and this lipstick wasn’t budging without a fight. I also picked this up in the shade Ruler a beautiful muted pink nude.
Maybelline Metallic Foil Liquid Lipstick in shade Calypso – I just couldn’t help myself as these beautiful Metallic finish liquid lipsticks were calling out to me. I own a lot of liquid lipsticks however not a single one of them has a metallic finish. These dry down super fast, they aren’t overly pigmented and could easily be applied over the top of a matte lipstick to add a metallic finish but they do also look beaut on their own (shown above). I also picked up Labrynith which is a gorgeous blue/green shade however this one is a little more patchy than Calypso, they are long lasting and super comfortable on the lips.
