Goddess eyeliner by Eye of Horus – review 4

Following on from reviewing Eye of Horus Goddess Mascara* I was asked if I’d like to try out the Eye of Horus Goddess pencils. Yes, yes please. Firstly so you can see the colours clearly, here they are on my hand. The pencils are 2 in 1, either eyeliner, or eye shadow.  You just smudge newly drawn lines immediately using the special smudger at the other end of the pencil, it is similar to a sponge eye shadow applicator but notably without that nasty sharp bit of plastic they have. These liners go on like normal kohl pencils but after about 1 minute is very hard to smudge, wipe away or blur. Panda eyes? Only if you do it on purpose!

Primark and Body Shop haul 1

It was my birthday recently and I had £30 to spend. I knew I wanted decent foundations as my bare faced reflection makes me cringe. I had been using MAC face and body, but it doesn’t cover enough for me. I did great at Body Shop! £53.50 shelf label value, I actually paid £23.35 after some discount stacking. I am also expecting a 93pence refund via TopCashBack* so £22.28 really paid. I practically robbed them, legally mind!

Make Up For Kids? 6

Did you wear make up too young? I know I did, by 11 years old I was hiding myself behind the make up. I felt ugly, and had to cover acne. These days I still can’t go out without at least foundation. I am covering acne scars and other scars. Girls as young as ten are feeling the pressure to wear make-up. According to recent findings by leading UK based beauty and cosmetics retailer Fragrance Direct. Are our children under pressure to grow up too quickly? Fragrance Direct, a leading UK based beauty and cosmetics retailer, conducted a survey of 1,600 of their Facebook fans to get their view.

Upcycling Make Up 2

Today I’ve been sorting old hand bags out. I had *cough* 6 fully loaded but abandoned hand bags. Some haven’t been touched for a year, I know this because they had “work” paperwork in. Most of them had complete make up in, foundation, pressed powder, lipsticks and glosses, eye shadow and more. Sadly some of this was out of date and some was dried up. Amongst all the old make up I had a few nice compacts. My favourite was a big Boots No.7 Christmas gift set. I loved this, until the eye shadow smashed in my bag about a year and a half ago. I threw it in the cupboard black hole and forgot all about it.
