Mini Reviews #2 - Stila, Estée Lauder & Primark Beauty

Hiya lovelies!

Do you ever find yourself wondering how to find the time to blog about all those products you've got lying around? Don't get me wrong, I feel incredibly blessed to be able to afford a lot of things nowadays, as this hasn't always been the case, I just want to blog about all of them, which is why I came up with the 'mini reviews series'. Three reviews rolled into one because sometimes, there's only so much you can say about a product. Make sure to let me know what you think! Today's reviews include a Stila lip gloss, an Estée Lauder mini eyeshadow palette and a Primark mascara and lash curler.

Stila Lip Glaze in Prism
It's almost been a year since the lovely Adrienne sent me this as part of my secret santa gift. I haven't tried anything from Stila before, despite lusting after their iconic Kitten eyeshadow since the age of 14. One thing I really like about their glosses is the clear twist up packaging, no more searching for the right shade (I'm looking at you, MAC lipsticks) or wondering how much product is left. Prism is a sheer coral shade with multi coloured glitter in it, not something I'd usually go for but since the glitter particles are teeny tiny, it looks lovely on the lips. It's slightly sticky which I don't mind, and I really like the brush applicator. £15 is a bit steep for a gloss in my eyes, but I like this enough to say I'd purchase more shades in the future.

Estée Lauder Pure Colour Mini Eyeshadow Palette
This is the dinkiest little eyeshadow palette I've ever seen! The four shades are the size of my thumbnail each but this doesn't make them less amazing. It comes with two satin shades, a pale pink and a soft brown, a shimmery forest green shade and a matte plum shade, all of which are perfect for this time of year. The quality of these is lovely, they are really pigmented and super soft, comparable to Urban Decay eyeshadows. I'm dying to try some more Estée Lauder products now!

Primark Beauty Mascara & Eyelash Curler
I should have known these were going to be a let down, but who can resist when they're only a quid each? It's not the formula, or the brush that has left me disappointed, it's the fact that the opening of the tube is too wide, so you basically get ALL the product on the brush. Clumpy spider lashes anyone? It's a shame because once you take off the excess product, it's a decent mascara. As for the eyelash curler, I don't know if it's me, but they never seem to do anything for me. To be fair my eyelashes have a slight curl to them anyway, so I never really felt like I needed an eyelash curler. How about you?

Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try any of them? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I do love Urban Decay so maybe i will have to try the Estee Lauder palette. I am loving Make Up Revolution's eyeshadow palettes at the moment. xx
