High End Cosmetics – Application & Review


Benefit Stay Flawless / NARS Sheer Glow Foundation / Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil / Benefit Fake Up Concealer / MAC Natural Mineralise Skin Finish / Urban Decay Primer Potion / Smashbox Brow Tech To Go / NARS Makeup Artist Palette – discontinued / Benefit They’re Real Mascara / YSL Glossy Stain

To kick off this most decadent of weeks here on my blog I thought I would put a bunch of high end products to the test in a video. I don’t do ‘tutorials’ as such so lets call this an application video followed by a round up of mini reviews. A few bits here were totally new to me so you see me trying them for the first time in the, others have been sitting in my collection for some time.

For those wondering, the only products I ended up using after the video were the brow pencil (amazing – review this week I promise) and the mascara. They’re Real is love hate for me because it’s SUCH a pain to remove (please just accept that it is, don’t tell me I’m wrong lol.. I know how difficult it is to take my own makeup off) but I’ve been using it for the past few weeks and I do really like it. The honourable mention would be the YSL Glossy Stain (also to be reviewed this week) – I absolutely love it but haven’t worn it much given that it’s an uber bold colour.. I will definitely be using it again though.. also I’ve dabbled with the NARS palette but I’m liking the cheek products more than the eyeshadows. They’re nice they’re just not as great as some others (mainly Urban Decay ) I have and thus haven’t made the cut often.. so yeah.. that’s that.. who’s excited to talk about some products we can’t afford? haha.. *normal service will resume next week*

    I had the same problem with that mascara and I’m now using a L’oreal mega volume mascara, it’s still got all the impact but I struggle nowhere as much when removing it 🙂

    I just can’t/won’t use They’re Real because of the nightmare I have removing it! Such a shame as the effect is fantastic but it’s not worth the lost eyelashes at the end of the day, lol!

    I find exactly the same problem with they’re real mascara as well! So I only use it now and again shame because it’s such a nice mascara! x

    would love to try this palette but worry it might not be right for my skin as my skin is very sensative.
