YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils
I had high hopes for this mascara after seeing a popular YouTuber saying it was her favourite of all time. Initially, I liked it – it does give lovely long lashes, but after a few uses it began to feel clumpy and started to flake quite badly. YSL claim that it doesn’t do either of these things. It’s a shame, but at £26 I expect something better. In fact, I have stopped using it and gone back to using Lancome’s original Hypnose.
By Terry Brightening CC Powder in Sunny Flash
I use the By Terry CC serum which I absolutely love, and this powder is lovely, but my main problem is that it started to crumble in the pan after a week of using it. I hadn’t dropped it, so I was very disappointed to have this happen with such an expensive product. It is very expensive at £52 and I actually prefer the Pro-Strobe Luminizer in Beaming by Beauty Pie which only costs £7.09 if you are a member, and I feel is superior.
Chanel Le Gel Sourcils (Transparent)
I have been searching for a transparent eyebrow gel for ages. I have tried quite a few high street brands and have not found a really great one. So I thought I would go more premium brand and give this one from Chanel a go. At £26 it is expensive and definitely not worth the money. It is not even as good as the cheaper brands.
AlphaH Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid
This is a bit of an iconic product, with many people loving and recommending it. However, it doesn’t like my skin at all. I have only used it once and I’m afraid to try it again as it the effect it had was quite dramatic. I experienced severe reddening and inflammation with a burning sensation and had to remove it within 10 minutes of trying it. Now, I appreciate that this is a personal disappointment to me and obviously, most people get on absolutely fine and would highly recommend it. I am used to using acids and so feel my skin is acclimatised to this type of product, but my skin does not like something in this particular brand.
