Urban Decay Optical Illusion Primer: REVIEW

Spent more money, none of you will be shocked. I have been on the hunt for a new primer for some time now. I try anything that you guys recommend. The last primer i had was Benfit porefessional. Anyway Lets get started.

The packaging

IMG_1749.jpgThe primer comes in this purple case. Typical Urban Decay with this beautiful purple. The box is really smooth. Its nothing special at the end of the day  its just a box, i throw them away as soon as i get them but i understand that some people like to see this.

 

 

 

Packaging of the product

IMG_1761.jpgI actually think this product packaging is rather beautiful. Its this beautiful nude pink, with a silver lid and a silver bottom. This is one of my favourite packaging for a product i would say, i just think it is so beautiful. The writing is silver and bold and to be honest with you the packaging was what made me purchase this. As i was shopping i had seen loads of different primers and i haven’t heard much about any, so i made my judgment on packaging. Also can we just appreciate how cool the name is.

 

 

The product

IMG_1763.jpgWhat the site says . . .

“Ready for your most perfected-looking skin? You can instantly blur flaws and smooth out your skin with Optical Illusion Complexion Primer. This pore minimizing primer reduces fine lines and makes pores almost vanish — for a gorgeous, porcelain-like texture. Makeup not only goes on better, but also lasts longer.This velvety soft, mattifying primer has a slight pink tint to illuminate skin pre-makeup, but dries down to a translucent, matte finish. Like the name suggests, Optical Illusion Complexion Primer creates an optical veil of scattered light, giving skin a soft-focus effect. The result? A beautiful, airbrushed finish (no Photoshop skills necessary!) Our easy formula provides just enough glide to fill in lines for a smoothed-out complexion, and it dries down to the perfect powdery finish.” 

My thoughts . . .

The product is the most beautiful pink. It feels tacky but not uncomfortable to wear. It works well with all foundations. It retails at £23 which is okay for a primer. I do think the price could be lowered but its not ridiculous. It works better when you use your fingers to apply – i say this as i know many people who use brushes for this process. Does it make your make up last? Yes it does. I used this without a setting spray and it lasted well so never mind if you used a setting spray. If your looking to purchase this product its actually sold out on the Urban Decay official website. BUT if you look on debenhams website or Space N K or house of Fraser when i looked the product was still in stock.

Would i recommend it?

No i wouldn’t. There is nothing wrong with the product, it works, its good but i would say its a must have in the collection. If you have a bit of cash and you feel like buying something that works then this is up your street. But there are primers that work equally as good as this one, it doesn’t stand out to me.

When i went to Spain

Hello everyone!! Im back. I haven’t written a post in so long and thats because i have been on holiday in Spain. Well a Spanish island. I stayed on a canary island called Tenerife. How many of you have been there?

Its a beautiful place and a fantastic holiday. Those of you who follow me on instagram or have me on snapchat would have seen my daily vlogs and travel photos.

I was away for 10 days. Most of the time i was relaxing by the pool. But there where some interesting days,funny storys and some tips i would like to share.

I went too a waterpark!! There not everyones cup of tea but i love them. Siam Park is the europes biggest and best water park. I went on loads of slides and had a great day. If any of you have been to florida its a bit like Typhoon Lagoon. I WENT ON A SLIDE!! AND IT WENT THROUGH A SHARK AQUARIUM! I shit myself! The only reason i ended up going down the slide was because there where to many stairs and the slide was the fastest way to the ground. If any of you want too see what i went on type in on youtube siam park tower if power. If any of you like these exciting days out and are about the island i highly recommend checking out siam park. One thing i didnt do and something i would recommend to somone else to do is to get the fast pass ticket. Its only 15 euros more and its a lot better than standing in the heat for hours to go on a ride that lasts 3 minutes!

Another trip i went on was the free bird!! Its a boat trip for 4 hours and it includes food,drink, music!!! ANDDD… you get to see whales and dolphins. Those of you that know me know i LOVEE animals. This was a great day out, i was just sad i couldn’t get any photos and only got videos which i can not upload on to here. But the whales are massive and there are loads of them and the dolphins are beautiful. You will always be able to see the whales but seeing the dolphins are rare but a wonderful experience.

The final trip was a evening show. It was FANTASTIC. There where a talented group what didn’t only sing but they preformed musical numbers. Again food and drink where included. But it was a fantastic night.

Fantastic holiday with great company! Add me on snapchat – meg24b and follow me on instagram meg.ann___ to join me on my adventures.

Thankyou so much for the love and i will be back to regular posts 🙂

High Brow Benefit : REVIEW

I went to my local debenhams and purchased the high brow pencil by benefit cosmetics. A few recommendations where given to me so i wanted to get down to the real deal.

SO here i am.

21015252_2017803621782593_64116687_n.jpgPackaging

It come in this bright cartoon box, like all the benefit products. It wasn’t anything crazy or different but it does the job of keeping the product sealed.

 

The actual pencil is silver with a mirror lid. If you know Benefit cosmetics you will know most of there products are like this so it fits in quite nicely AND has the name of the product in PINK which is a massive bonus.

21040658_2017803618449260_524372878_n

 

 

I think the packaging is gorgeous. 10/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

What the site says :

This luminous eyebrow highlighter pencil gives you an instant eye-opening WOW! A single stroke of the glowing champagne-pink shade under arches instantly illuminates & gives a lifted look. Signature Tips & Tricks included!

  • brow bone highlighter pencil
  • NEW smooth, blendable formula
  • luminous finish

 

My Opinion

21074262_2017803625115926_1869439627_nThe product looks like this when you take the lid of. The pencil has a creamy formula, and is easy to blend. There are 2 different shades. One is glowy and the other on is matte. I went for the matte option because i prefer this look and think it looks gorgeous. Its a really easy product to use and is now apart of my every day make up routine. It prices at £18.50 and is 100% worth it.

I RECCOMEND.

 

This was my Look of the day:

Standing on top of London

I have been on another adventure!!

I got given the most amazing opportunity to go up the Walkitalki Building in London. Its Opposite the Shard and has the most amazing view. To get in there are strict security but after that there is a restaurant and great views. I don’t know if its just me but looking at an amazing view always manages to inspire me. It wasn’t to great of weather so if you are going to go i recommend going on a good day as the view will look better. I think London is gorgeous. If  i could live there i would. Whilst i was there i had some Victoria Sponge and i never thought i would be able to say i was eating cake whilst overlooking London. It was an amazing day out. I think this is a beautiful day out and if you enjoy views i think you should go and book this experience now!!!

Here are some of the photos i got.

The day we met Nemo&Dory ft beach

Me and my Gorgeous Boyfriend took a trip down to the beach and whilst we was there we went to sea life. I was extremely excited as you can imagine as i adore animals and sea life is a perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with some beautiful sea life creatures. Where i live there isn’t a lot to do so this was a cheap fun day out. You can do this with boyfriends,girlfriends,friends,family. Its a great memory.

 

At sea life you can take really awesome photos of beautiful animals. This little guy hardly moved. Later on in the day i got the opportunity to feed him his dinner. ( J looks chilled but he was crapping himself)

These bite!

I Honestly think the water and the colours are so beautiful!

My experience of meeting Dory!

 

 

 

 

Joss took these photos and now thinks he’s some sort of photographer. I have a dream/goal to go in a shark cage, i would honestly love to swim with sharks.

 

After spending about 4-5 hours in sea life we thought we would take a cute little walk along the beach, my idea of a cute walk along the beach is impossible in england. SO i spent the whole time asking J what everything on the floor was and assuming all the bumps where worms. BUT i got some photos for you…..

IMG_0161

Excuse my vile face and spot in that photo but he looks adorable!! I dont know if you like theese sort of posts or not but i strongly recommend you and a friend or someone who is great company head down to your sea life centre. Its Such a great day out and you can feed some of your favourite animals.

 

Lots of Love xo

My Favourite Liquid Lipsticks

My faves from my collection.(High end)

Two Faced Melted matte shade- doesn’t even say.

two faced melted matte.jpgPink/red tone. The site says “Matte color gets a Melt-over! Our innovative formula glides over lips like a gloss but dries to an ultra-matte opaque finish. Infused with a no-sting lip plumper and filler, Melted Matte ensures color always looks rich, full, and kissable – never dry, shriveled or cracked. Doe-foot applicator comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, saturated matte color that lasts for hours.” 

My opinion: I have 2 different shades in the melted mattes and i really like them. The formula is beautiful and all the shades are wearable. This is a good natural colour that goes with lots of different looks. They don’t smell great which some people might not like and its 7ml. I recommend this liquid lipstick i think they are beautiful and comfortable to wear.         £19  $21 

 

Mac Retro Matte Lipcolour Lipstick shade -Back in Vogue.

mac.jpg

Orange/light nude. The site says “For those who prefer timeless glamour to all-out flash, matte reigns supreme. M∙A∙C introduces a twist on this classic texture with robustly saturated shades of Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. Whichever shade you choose, all promise one thing: a splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that is impossible to forget.” 

 

My opinion: Not many people know mac do liquid lipsticks so when i found theese i thought they needed to be tried. I think the packaging is beautiful and the price is decent.The applicator on the lipstick is different and makes it easy to apply. This lipstick isn’t drying and is comfortable to wear. There are so many beautiful shades in this lipstick.     £17.50 (beautiful colour for a holiday)

 

Este Lauder Pure colour envy Lip potion shade – 330 Lethal Red

este lauder.jpg

A very  bright red, great for Holiday. The site says “Driven by desire. Wild with color. Wet with moisture. Soaked in vinyl shine.Creamy, moisture–rich formula glides on in one effortless swipe of bold liquid color.Lips are full, smooth, sexy shiny.Doe foot applicator lets you shape and color lips with precise definition.”

 

 

My opinion: I heard about this through Kendall Jenner. I sometimes dont rock this colour but the formula is stunning. I actually adore the packaging on this lipstick and the applicator. The packaging feels heavy and looks expensive. I recommend thees to everyone but they are a tad pricey. £21

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick shade-Sepia

anastasia bevery hills.jpgA Beautiful grey purple colour. The site says “An intensely pigmented, cult-favorite liquid formula that delivers a rich, long-wearing matte look to lips. Use the flat sponge-tip applicator to apply Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick with precision for an unforgettable look.

Full coverage with opaque color
Non-drying formula
Available in 35 shades”

 

My opinion: I couldn’t agree more with this description. I can honestly say this liquid lipstick is gorgeous. I wanted one for ages and when i went to New York (i have a blog post about this) I went in to saphora and got one FINALLY!! Its a stunning colour works well with Morph 35t palette. Worth the price. £20

 

Kylie Jenner Lipstick shade- exposed

IMG_0848.jpgI wear this nude every single day. The site says “The Matte Liquid Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry out your lips. “

 

My opinion: Beautiful easy colour, goes with so many make up looks. Beautiful packaging. I love this colour. It looks lighter on the website. The only issue i have is because i live in the UK i have to pay import tax as they come from America but in my opinion they are well worth the money. I have these in so many different colours. $29

 

 

This post was thrown together quick so i apologies, A few others i love are the tarte liquid lipsticks they have a really creamy formula which i love.
