Miracle Romance Waterproof Eyeliner*

I was very lucky to have the opportunity to choose 2 products from Born Pretty, an online store filled with beauty & lifestyle products. I picked the Miracle Romance waterproof eyeliner, and a stunning eye shimmer eye shadow palette which also claims to be waterproof.
Unfortunately i had some sort of reaction to the palette, most likely due to my sensitive skin, so i wasn't able to leave it on long enough to review. 
I swatched the 3 colours on my hand so i could still show you.

I used all 3 colours, using the lightest shade to highlight the inner corners of my eye, and subtly under my brow bone, the medium shade i used as a base, and i applied the darkest shade to my crease, and blended outwards. They are very pigmented, very shimmery, and so easy to apply and blend, it was just a shame i had a reaction to the product!

However, i did get to use the waterproof eyeliner, several times may I add! I am so impressed by this, i'm always on the hunt for liquid, pencil and gel eyeliners that make applying winged eyeliner a little easier, as i'm useless at it. It takes so much practise, and patience, something i lack in! It glided over my lid so easily, leaving a clean line. One of my favourite things about this, is that once i had applied it and perfected it, it didn't smudge as i opened my eye, something i really struggle with, i find myself waiting ages with one eye closed, waiting for it to dry to avoid ruining all my effort! The tip is ultra thin, it's described as a gel formula, which provides the precision of a liquid liner. I much prefer to use felt tip liners, it's much easier to hold, and a lot less messy. I love the look of liquid and gel, but a felt tip and pencil is just the neatest way to go in my opinion.

As it's a waterproof eyeliner, i found it quite difficult to remove, which is expected with a waterproof product, but i'd much rather struggle with the removing of it than keep having to reapply my eyeliner throughout the day if i get caught in a light shower of rain. 

I applied my eyeliner in the morning, at around 11.30am, by 7pm it was still very much on my lids, I had a tiny bit of fallout and smudging underneath my eye, but in all honesty it was hardly noticeable, I was looking in a magnified mirror!

Thank you Born Pretty for the discount, and for the products i was sent, i am very happy with what i received! :)

I apologise for not posting for ages, i've been very poorly, but hopefully with lots of rest i'm slowly getting there, i just keep wanting to fall asleep in the middle of the day! 
I hope you're all well, and i hope you enjoy this post and the discount. 
Lots of love!

Garnier Exfoliating Scrub

As i've mentioned before, blackheads are my absolute nightmare, i can't stand them. (Who can?!)
The Biore pore cleansing strips have done me so many favours, but seeing as you're only supposed to use them 2 times a week (maximum) i need to find something to keep them away until i can have my next strip session. (that sounds kinda weird) 

The Garnier Exfoliating Scrub is designed to help remove impurities and fight spots. Personally, if i have a nasty red spot, i tend to steer clear of this scrub, or any sort of scrub, mainly because they're abrasive, and scrubbing a spot tends to irritate it and make it angry, therefore making it even redder! It's like it wants revenge, you try so hard to scrub it away that it comes back bigger and nastier!

I use this every 3 days, whilst staying away from big spots to prevent irritation. I target the areas of my skin that are prone to blackheads, for example my nose, chin and forehead.

Exfoliating can damage your skin if you do it daily, so even if a skincare product says it should be used daily, i never listen!

Blackheads come from excess sebum (natural oils) and dead skin cells, which is why people that suffer with oily skin are so prone to getting blackheads.

This scrub keeps my skin thoroughly cleansed, it helps keep the surface of my skin soft, and gets rid of any excess skin or dirt, which is what forms a blackhead in the first place.

Has anyone else found this helps with their oily and blackhead prone skin?!
