Things I Have Used Up


It's quite rare for me to actually finish things.  Shampoo, conditioner, and cleanser maybe - I get through so much conditioner that quite a lot of empty bottles come out of my bathroom - but nothing else, really.  Perhaps because I have so many duplicate bits of stuff that actually getting through something is quite an achievement.

This month, though, I've managed to finish three things that have been a regular staple for quite some time.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance is something I've never actually reviewed, but have used solidly since I bought it about six months ago.  I bought it because I'd heard that it performs much like Urban Decay's cult classic primer potion, but without the slight difficulty in blending you can get with UDPP.  Also, it comes in a tube - meaning I've been able to squeeze every last drop out.  It does indeed perform like UDPP - easy to blend onto the eyelid, very easy to blend over, and holds shadow in place for a good 18 hours.  I will definitely repurchase this.

Chanel Le Crayon Sourcils is a wonderful eyebrow pencil which straddles the line between hard and soft.  It's easy to feather plenty of colour onto the brows with this pencil, and equally easy to remove any excess if required too.  It also comes in a shade called Auburn, which has enough red in it to look sensible next to my bright red hair.  I particularly like that the pencil is double ended - one end is the actual eyebrow pencil, and the other is a firm bristled angled brush, perfect for softening the brows if required.  I've now switched back to brow powder - but if I wanted to go back to pencil, this'd be my choice/

Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath Oil* is an incredibly luxurious, pungently scented bath oil.  A little goes a long way, and a bath with this always leaves both my bathroom and my skin deliciously fragrant, and my mind feeling relaxed and sleepy.  The glass bottle looks smart on my bathroom shelf, and the overall quality of the product makes it worth the slightly spendy price.
