First Impressions Drugstore Makeup Look

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.

    LOVE this look! You’re very pretty 🙂 L’Oreal eyeliners are always a yes from me – I like the Nyx coloured ones too (VERY easy application, the brush is fantastic) but the formula for those is super weird. Pink is AMAZING, I’ve had one since June last year and it’s still good as new, but I bought an orange one a few months ago and it dried out in less than a month. (Sorry, rambly comment, but . . . I’m passionate about eyeliner 🙂 ) xx

      Thank you lovely <3 I've never tried NYX ones, the coloured ones sound interesting I'll definitely keep my eye out for them next time I'm in Boots. The L'Oreal ones were the first liquid eyeliners I ever tried and I always go back to them x

    I’m desperately looking for a new concealer, after deciding to finally part with my Collection Concealer – how would you rate the Eye Eraser? Love the post by the way! Makeup is on point xx

      Thank You Charl <3 I'd rate it a 4/5 its not cakey or drying under the eyes and blends super easily, I also use it on its own for quick touch-ups if im in a rush or dont want to put on any foundation. It doesn't come with the biggest shade range, I have light which could do with being a tad lighter for my skin tone but they do also have a 'brightener' version too which is also really nice and can be used on high points for subtle highlight contour. xx

    Beautiful look hun ? Shame about the mascara as it’s on my to try list, but it still looks nice. I’ve heard so many people Dave about thise Maybelline lipsticks, I really need to get a couple xx

      Thank you <3 It's still a lovely mascara and I'll still get use out of it probably on days where I'm not really wearing too much makeup and want a subtle look I'll pop it on then. I just love the Paradise Mascara a little more it adds a lot more definition. The Maybelline lipsticks are beautiful and are so nice to apply too. xx
