Decluttering Eye Products

eyeproductsheader

I have to admit I wasn’t entirely sure what to call this decluttering post as it sort of covers a lot of different eye products, basically anything that isn’t eyeshadow or eyeliner. I included my two concealer palettes in here because I only really used them as under eye concealers, though they could probably have gone in a face products post as well. As with my previous decluttering posts I’ll link to any posts I’ve done to review these products and link to any of the ones I really liked.

When I was going through my makeup products I realised I have so many unopened, unused mascaras in there so I could probably have actually got rid of a few more, I just do like to at least try one kind of mascara before I get rid of it. It feels like every one of those spend X amount or buy this many products sets seems to come with a mascara so I hardly ever actually buy any myself.

What I Have in My Travel Makeup Bag

I did a post about the things I took in my makeup bag for travel over a year ago but I thought I’d do another after going away last week. Some of the things I didn’t use but it’s going to be the same things I’m taking away for family meetups and things in the lead up to Christmas so it seemed like a good time to post one anyway. I’m not normally too bad at packing light when it comes to makeup but I was surprised when I unpacked it all how much I took this time. I tend to go for taking only a few kinds of products but a range of colours in them.

I think that most of these things I’ve posted a review for so I’ll link it if I have so there’s a more in depth post on them and proper swatches if you’re interested in them. Almost everything is still available in stores, I think only the eyeliners might be hard to find but I haven’t found any that I like as much, I am on the lookout for a nice soft bronzey or gold colour if anyone has any suggestions though.

Review: Models Own Eye Base Eyeshadow Primer in Matte

Over the past few years I’ve tried quite a few different eye primers and, when I was getting some things from the Models Own store online I saw that they do them and, as they cost less than my current Urban Decay Primer Potion at £6.99 I wanted to see how it compared. I used to love the Elf Studio eyeshadow primer that came in a double ended thing with an eyeliner primer too I think but I haven’t been able to find it recently so I’ve been looking for a lower budget replacement to the UD.

There are different finished for their Eye Base eyeshadow primer, the one I chose is matte as I do like matte eyeshadows recently so I thought it might help to keep the finish better. They’re all £5.99 and available from the Models Own website as well as on Superdrug and Asos. I guess they’re probably available in most places that sell the Models Own makeup range but I don’t know of any others in the UK since Boots seems to have stopped.
