I was rather excited to make this post as it’s my first ever collab! I’m collabing with the gorgeous and lovely Gabi from her blog, GabbThomas. We have both chosen our favourite product from Mac, Rimmel London and Benefit. Trust me, it was very hard narrowing down my top three never mind one favourite.. After many swaps and feelings of betrayal to different products I chose a Mac eyeshadow in the shade coppering, Benefit roller lash mascara and a Kate Moss lipstick in the shade 01.
First off can I just say how pigmented Mac eyeshadows are, you literally need one sweep of your brush and you’re good to go. This shade is such a wearable shade which you wouldn’t expect it to be as it’s not a neutral shade. This shade works so well with green eyes as it makes them stand out vividly. It’s very easy to blend and works well layered up with other products. My favourite way to wear this is all over the lid and blended into the crease then in the outer corner blended inwards the Bare Minerals high shine eyeshadow in the shade meteorite.
I deliberated hard over which Rimmel product to choose as I have a soft spot for the wake me up concealer and a new found love for the 9 in 1 bb cream. Eventually I chose this as it is the only red lipstick I own and I love it so much that I’ve never felt the need to venture out and buy another one. Red lipstick is definitely out of my comfort zone but I find this so easy to wear. The formula is very moisturising which is strange for a red lipstick but I’m not complaining. I find dark reds suit my skin tone and this is very comfortable on the lips.
The roller lash mascara was hyped up over a very long period of time and I hate to admit that I was one of the people counting down the days. I though Benefit really had a gap in their mascaras for a lengthening but not volumising one. This fills the gap perfectly, it makes my lashes look super long without going clumpy. The hooking wand really captures your lashes coating them root to tip. I find this mascara very buildable so you can create subtle lashes and build up to more dramatic lashes. I definitely prefer this over the they’re real mascara as I found it make my lashes sag as it was very heavy and it was a killer to get off!
