L'Oreal Super Liner Brow Artist in Blonde

L'Oreal Super Liner Brow Artist

The 90's was an era where every woman plucked their brows, I am guilty of this too. With Cara Delevinge creating the big brows trend this year, pick up your eyebrow pencils!

The L'Oreal Super Liner Brow Artist is the latest offering on the market to create bold brows. I've previously used Rimmel's Professional Eyebrow Pencil and MAC's Eyebrow Pencil, I love both.

I picked the Brow Artist in the colour blonde. I have chocolate brow hair but I went for the lightest shade as the one labelled brown was almost black which, would be way to dark to match my hair.

Unlike Rimmel and MAC's pencils which glide on smoothly and have a light texture, the L'Oreal one has more of a heavy waxy feel. Used lightly it does create a nice definition to the brows. A word of advice, don't go over the same spot too many times, it builds up to a strange heavy matte texture. 

The Brow Artist has a handy little comb on the lid, and on the other end has a wax pencil to keep the stray hairs in place. Strangely enough the wax is softer feeling than the actual coloured pencil side.

I've never really had a probably with my eyebrow pencil wiping off during the day and this one wasn't a problem either.

Long lasting
Comb included
Wax included

Must be used lightly
Heavy waxy texture
Not too many colours, brown is too dark

I'm half and half over L'Oreal's Super Liner Brow Artist, I do prefer the texture of my MAC and Rimmel pencils. On the plus side, I like that it has a wax on the other side.

Have you tried the L'Oreal Super Liner Brow Artist?

Gimme Gimme Gimme: The Handbag Edition

My beloved Topshop bag has finally bitten the dust with a broken zip and scuffed up edges, it was time to say goodbye. I trolled Topshop's website for a new best friend in the form of a handbag.

Topshop Zip Boxy Holdall - £65
This washed out green shade is a perfect 'look at me' shade that will brighten up any outfit.

Topshop Large Leather Padlock Bag - £95
The style of this handbag is very classic, meaning it will never date. Just be careful where you put it down!

Topshop Embossed Croc Duffle Bag - £60
I can't believe this bag is only £60, it looks so luxurious and more expensive than the price tag.

Which one shall I choose?

Holiday Essentials featuring Soap and Glory, Veet, St Tropez, Max Factor and Garnier

Veet Easy Wax Electrical Roll-On Kit - £29.99/£14.99
No bikini body is ready without a wax. It's painful but it has to be done. This kit from Veet is on offer at the moment for just £14.99, instead of nearly £30. The roll-on wax is meant to apply a thin even layer ready for you to apply the strips. Take a deep breath and pull the strip upwards, against the grain of the hair.

Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Scrub - £7.50
Exfoliation is the key to beautiful legs. We often forget to scrub away the nasty dead skin cells and dry patches before applying a tan whether it be an instant hint of colour or a gradual tan to build up slowly. Using this scrub from Soap and Glory will leave your skin a blank clean canvas to begin bronzing.

St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan - £9.59
The next step is moisturiser. Cut a step out and pick up this gradual tanner from St Tropez. This product builds up such a beautiful colour and it's super hydrating.

Max Factor 3 Day Mascara - £18.99
I'm a sucker for a gimmick, this mascara boasts three days lasting power. Almost like a tint, this product has a mascara wand at one end and a remover on the flip side. Perfect for lazy make up days in the sun.

Garnier Ambre Solaire BB Cream with High Sun Protection SPF 50 - £7.99
For those who aren't 100% happy with their skin, like myself, a little coverage while on holiday is a must. This BB cream by Garnier has SPF 50, which is fantastic. Using a high SPF can help prevent signs of ageing and also protect against skin cancer. Remember to cover your body in your favourite sun screen and avoid sun at the peak hours between 11pm and 3pm.

Where are you off on holiday this summer?
