July Beauty Tryouts

My first sassy bag spill photo - I think I pulled it off quite nicely!

Today's post is something I've been wanting to do for a while after seeing it on several other blogs, primarily A Girl Obsessed, who is my biggest idol and inspiration. I buy so much makeup but most of it I never actually write about, so a tryouts post is a great idea and a way of organising which products I need to do full reviews on!

The first item I am trying is is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Candlelight primer. I have actually owned this eyeshadow primer since Christmas, but I lost it until very recently so I had been unable to try it. I'm looking forward to using it as my current eye primer is matte, and I love something with a bit of sparkle!

More on eyes, I received a liquid eyeliner from an Illamasqua Vegan Beauty event I attended and I am absolutely dying to try it out. It should have been £20.50 to buy and so I am crazy grateful that I received this lovely eyeliner for free.

Onto brows - if you've read my post about the Benefit Brows event you'll know I purchased two lovely treats for myself. The first is Gimme Brow, a volumnising fibre gel for sparse brows, and the second is Ka-Brow cream gel for waterproof, buildable brow colour.

The last product I am trying this month is also by Benefit and is the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! liquid foundation. I loved how the Benebabe applied this to my face and the look it gave me, so I'm excited to try it out for myself.

Have you tried any of these products?


  1. I'd love to know how you get on with the Benefit foundation as it's something I've been contemplating buying for a while now. x
