Yves Saint Laurent Makeover

Monday, 23 December 2013

As I mentioned in my previous post, it was recently my birthday and I was lucky enough to have my make up done my Yves Saint Laurent for my birthday night out. Whilst, applying my make up, the make up artist started to tell me about their 'Touche Éclat' product and applied it to my face to contour as well as to highlight just below my brow line. I loved the texture of it and the way it glided onto my face and so I decided to give it a try. At £25, it's not the cheapest product ever, but I am so glad I bought it. It is definitely worth it! I now wear it everyday and can't imagine not using it. It is really good to contour with and adds real definition to the cheek bones, additionally, it makes a great highlighter and I have used it a couple of times as a primer - it is definitely a multi-function product! 

As it was nearing Christmas, Yves Saint Laurent had a promotion on; with every 'Touche Éclat' that was sold, the customer received a free mascara. I was really excited to receive this as I had never used a YSL mascara before. I was a bit unsure about it at first because it is only a miniature and I often find that they are never as good as full sized mascaras. However, having tried this, I absolutely love it. Whilst it adds a lot of volume to my lashes, I don't find it curls them as much as I would like, but I am really glad I tried it and would contemplate buying the full sized one in the near future.  

I would definitely recommend the 'Touche Éclat' and I know that they are YSL's best selling product, with one selling every 10 seconds across the world. I will be sure to purchase another as soon as mine runs out!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. 


Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoos

Wednesday, 4 December 2013

I'd heard a lot about the Maybelline 24 hr Colour Tattoos and how good they were so I thought it was about time that I tried them for myself. I bought one in 'Eternal Gold' and having raved about it to my housemate she bought me 'Pink Gold' for my birthday and I absolutely love them. I know lots of people have blogged about these, but I thought I would add my own take on them.

The two colours that I have aren't very bold colours and so are very subtle to wear during the day. I particularly like wearing the 'Pink Gold' for an everyday natural make up look. 'Eternal Gold' is perfect for this time of year because it has a very Christmassy feel to it. When doing a smokey eye look, I like to blend 'Eternal Gold' into the corner of my eyes to open them up slightly and it adds a nice contrast to the dark eye shadow.

Also, they are great to use as a primer and base for eye shadow. I often wear one of them underneath my eye shadow for a night out as they hold the make up in place really nicely, particularly when I'm out clubbing in a hot environment and make up is prone to sliding off my face!

With Christmas around the corner, I'll be sure add more to my Christmas list and I look forward to experimenting with new colours. 

Have you tried the Maybelline 24 hr Colour Tattoos? What do you think of them?
