Newbies #7


This week I bought ALOT of new things but oddly these were the only beauty bits I actually picked up! These were just things I was rather curious about and wanted to try out! I'm supposed to be 'skint' this month, but somehow I always manage to find money to buy make up haha! 

High Beam is one of Benefit's most famous products so its strange really that this is the first time I have ever tried it. I don't use a highlighter often, in fact, I rarely use one, but I thought I would pick this up to try as I reckon it will be a great contouring tool during the autumn/winter season. I know this probably won't be something that I will be reaching for often, but I can't wait to try it for nights out or even just to create a gorgeous healthy sheen.

The second product is supposedly a dupe for Benefit's They're Real Eyeliner, but I haven't actually tried that yet so I won't be making the comparison. I really like this so far. The texture of Maybelline's Black Shock Gel Liner is creamy and the nib makes it so easy to apply, but I would say that you definitely should use an eye primer with this as it can smudge throughout the day (I recommend the UD Primer Potion). Also I would add that you need to take your time with this as it can be quite tricky at first but the end results are worth it!

What products have you lot been buying this week?

  1. I had one of the little minis of High Beam a couple of years ago and I loved it, everything from the formula to the application, and yet, strangely, as much as I loved it, I can't bring myself to splurge on buying a whole bottle!! Weird!

    1. I managed to find it in my work at the tax free price which was around 15 I think and then I had a fiver on a gift card so it wasn't all that expensive really! I know what you mean it seems so much to pay for just a highlighter ! Xxxx
