HOT or NOT?!- Maybelline 'Baby Skin' Primer

So I ended up succumbing to the hype surrounding this product and making a quick and sordid purchase at my local Superdrug. But is this any good?

Firstly, it is of a silicone texture and does feel quite slippery when applying on the face. I personally quite like this texture as it feels nice and soft. However, I felt this made my skin appear greasy and excessively shiny. In terms of reducing my pores, it didn't do an incredible job and find my foundation of choice- (Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation), does a good job of this anyway.

Ultimately, I will continue using this as I bought it and would like to finish it but I won't be running to re-purchase this product any time soon.

Thank you for reading :)

Why Maybelline 'Big Eyes' Mascara was such a let down?

So I'm going to keeping this post short and sweet.

I had high hopes for this mascara having seen so many American Youtubers using this in their videos and because my favourite mascara is Maybelline 'the falsies' Mascara.

I first tried this on the train on my way to University being the classy bird that I am, LOL! But it took forever to get my desired finish. On the pictures above is four coats of mascara, which for me is far too many as I usually apply perhaps, two coats or just one with the Maybelline Falsies Mascara.

I think the reason is takes quite long to apply is because of the tiny wand. The brush for the bottom lashes however, is quite good as you can get into the corners of the eye and really accentuate the bottom lashes. Ultimately, I do like this mascara but I don't love it. As a result, I don't think I will be repurchasing this.

Thank you reading.
