Underrated products #2

So I put up a underrated products post up a couple of months ago and it seemed to go down pretty well so today I thought I would share some more products with you. These are all products which I really love which I feel like don't get enough shout outs on blogs and in videos. So without further ado lets get into the products.

Clarins BB skin detox fluid -

I've heard really mixed things about this one but only after looking for the reviews. It isn't something I've seen cropping up in many blog posts and I have seen very few stand alone reviews. For me this is the perfect light coverage base as it sits incredibly comfortably on my dry skin. The only little thing I will say is that even though I have the shade 00 it still is a little too dark and I have to be really careful I blend it down my neck properly. Other than that I think it's a brilliant product and I also like the way it's a squeezy tube with a pump as it makes it good for travel but not too messy.

Bourjois Radiance reveal concealer -

I feel like this was talked about a tiny bit when it was first released however since then I'm pretty sure I haven't seen it mentioned which puzzles me a little as it is an incredible concealer for under the eyes. The texture is incredibly light weight meaning that it doesn't feel heavy under the eyes but also meaning that it doesn't sink into any dry patches. Despite the fact it is lightweight however it still packs a punch coverage wise and I find it brilliant to cover my dark circles completely.

Urban Decay Beached bronzer in Bronzed -

This bronzer is incredible. It's such a beautiful warm shade without pulling too orange meaning that it adds the perfect amount of warmth without going for the full oompa loompa look. I do love the incredibly hyped Benefit Hoola however I do find this one is just a little easier to use. I prefer the texture as it is a little lighter and slightly finer milled meaning even though the shade is darker it just looks a little more natural. I honestly don't know why this stuff doesn't get more hype as it really is beautiful.

Clinique Cheek pop blush in Berry pop -

I feel like all I ever see about these is people mentioning how pretty they are but I honestly really love the products too. They are 100% the most pigmented but incredibly easy to use blushes. I find that even though the pigment is strong they are still very easy to blend no matter how many or how few layers they are going on top off. This shade is a fairly bright pink and not one I would normally go for but I do think it is really stunning and one that I use a hell of a lot in the summer.

NYX Prismatic eyeshadows in Golden peach and Fireball -
These are so similar to the Makeup Geek foiled shadows so if you do prefer to swatch before you buy then these would be good ones to try first. They are very metallic beautifully pigmented shades which I wear so much. What I love about the line is that there is a huge variety of shades from the much more neutral to the crazy bright. If you are on the hunt for an affordable metallic eyeshadow then look no further than these.
Gosh Rebel eyes mascara -
I have heard no one talk about this and I have no idea why it is incredible. It does the best job of really separating the lashes and adding a tonne of length. If you are more into your volumising mascaras then this might not be your favourite however if you want something to really lengthen and make your lashes look super fluttery this is what you need.

Illamasqua Lip colouring pencils in Woo and Lust -
These are a fairly recent discovery but boy am I in love. These are some of the most creamy lip liners I have tried however they aren't so creamy that they feel as though they aren't going to keep your lipstick in place. These are proper pencil style liner which require sharpening which I personally prefer as you can sharpen the point every time meaning you always get a beautifully clean application.
Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte liquid lipsticks in Serenity and Cher -
I actually have ten shades of these but I thought I would swatch my favourite two for you. These are hands down the most comfortable liquid lipstick I have ever worn. They sit so nicely on the lips and even after a full day of wear the lips aren't dry and uncomfortable. Out of all the Liquid lips I have tried these are in no way the most long lasting but the comfort of the wear leads me to reach for them all the time.
The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in Committed and Charming -
Another amazing Liquid lip formula that you never hear anything about are these. They are a very thin, opaque consistency meaning that again like the GC ones these don't dry out the lips. Towards the end of the day you do get a little flaking however I do expect that with a Liquid lip. These also smell incredible like minty goodness and I mean it gets bonus points from me for that.

So that's it for today guys, I would love to know if you feel some of your favourite products don't get enough hype!

  4. I feel like not enough people know about The Balm Cosmetics brand, I love them you should give their bronzing powder a go; Bahama Mama it's fab and great as a contour shade!
