Benefit World Famous Neutral Pallete :Review

Benefit generally have brilliant packaging and this eyeshadow pallete is no different. I couldnt resist but decided to buy it eventhough I have literally all the neutral colours in existence.

This eyeshadow book kit comes with four powder eyeshadows in: call me buff (a pearly white colour); kiss me, I'm tipsy ( a reddish brown colour); it's complicated (a shimmery goldy pink) and gilt-y pleasure ( a shimmery goldy peach). The kit also contain two creaseless cream eyeshadows in birthday suit (shimmery champagne colour) and my two cents (shimmery golden copper).

Overall I love the luxury and pigmentation of the powder and cream eyeshadows. The powder eyeshadows apply like butter and are not at all loose and powdery. You literally have everyting you need for an everyday neutral eyeshadow look and I can myself hitting pan on this fairly quickly. What did you guys think?

Rimmel London Fix & Perfect primer: Review & Swatches

I love the Benefit PORE-fessional primer but the price is abit too much I think, so i thought I would try a high street primer and picked the Rimmel primer a couple of weeks ago.  The primer itself comes in a squeeze tube and a twist off cap which I love as I am a hygiene freak!

A bit of the primer goes a long way, therefore it would last you for a while. The primer fills in fine lines and your pores making your face look and feel flawless and also providing a perfect base for your foundation. 

It mattifies the face so it works well with oily or combination skin types. People with dry skim can also use it, as long as you apply a moisturiser before you apply the primer. Other than that, the primer is white with a  lovely cream texture and does not give you that silicon feeling that the benefit one gives. I absolutely recommend this for girls who want a primer on a budget! 

What is your favourite primer?
