Additions To My Make-Up Bag

I went to Superdrug about a month ago to pick up some bits that I had run out of. Me being me, I also looked around the different sections to see if I could find anything that I wanted to try out, and this is what I picked up...

Maybelline Lash Sensational - Intense Black
I have seen this floating around the internet for a while now and I wanted to give it a go. I got this for about £7.99 which isn't bad really. I have been using it quite a lot and I love it. With a couple of layers, your lashes are longer, darker and more fluttery; making your eyes stand out beautifully. I love the brush that it has as lashes don't clump together and it doesn't rub or flake off as the day goes on.

Maybelline the falsies Push-Up Drama - Black
I got this one because it was part of a deal that Superdrug had, meaning I could get it for £3.99. I use this just as much as the previous one that I mentioned because the brush has cup-shaped bristles meaning all of your lashes get coated in the mascara, making them have more volume and look twice as long. 

Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect - Black
This mascara I chose because of it's massive brush haha. The bristles are like little blades so the lashes are guided individually through them; making sure that they are fully coated and still stay separated. I like this mascara because it fans out my lashes and makes my eyes look fuller; however I normally use this as a base coat before putting another mascara on as I don't feel like it gives your lashes much volume. Some of you may like it because it looks more natural, but I like my lashes to stand out more. 

Rimmel London Exaggerate Eye Liner - 001 100% Black
I wanted to see what other eye liners were like as I have been using the same one for years now, but to be honest I think I will be going back to the one that I know and love as although this one applies really well and looks good, it comes off quite easily and doesn't last as long as my other one does. 

Rimmel London Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer
I needed an eye shadow primer so I decided to give this one a go as it was an alright price and I wanted to see if I could get away with using a drug store one instead of going for a brand such as Urban Decay. This does make my eyeshadow look more pigmented and last longer; as long as the eyeshadows are from good brands. If I use a cheaper eyeshadow, I still feel as though I need to put quite a bit on. So I may try a more top-end brand just to see if it is more worthwhile. 

Urban Decay - Naked Eyeshadow Palette
I didn't actually buy this that day, I got it from my best friend Amy for my 19th birthday because I have always wanted to add these palettes to my collection; I just always spent my money on other things haha. This is the first palette out of their set and I love it. The shadows are highly pigmented and the colours are gorgeous. The case is also lovely as it has a velvet feel to it and I just like the design. I am definitely going to be collecting the other palettes that I have had on my wish list for ages!

So, that is a little update on the products that I have tried out or are still using. I hope you find it helpful if you are looking to try out something new! :)
