REVIEW | L’oreal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim

When it comes to eyeliner I have always sworn by the felt tip liner. My obsession started when I tried Colorsport 24 Hour Black Eyeliner, I loved the thin line I could achieve with it. Unfortunately it wasn't black black (you know what I mean by that) and the staying power, not so great. After trying A LOT of other felt tip liners I have found my new favorite! L'oreal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim in Intense Black.
What I love about this is that I can do my eyeliner pretty much perfect every time. Maybe I have just finally learnt to do it better, but I want to believe it is the eyeliner okay? It has a really firm nib which makes it one hundred times easier to apply a thin even liner on EACH eye. That's right not one eye, both, so you don't end up up looking like this:
 We've all been there
But end up a little more like this ... 
[apologies for the 'shopping bags' under my eyes, it was a lazy no makeup day]
Not only does it have the perfect nib but it also is aesthetically pleasing, which is almost as important to me as the product. Sad but true. I love how the glossy black casing with gold trimmings makes it look really expensive, when its only £6.99. It also has a matte black grip, which makes it a little easier to hold and therefore easier to draw the perfect line. 
Being able to get different thicknesses by simply applying more or less pressure is music to my ears and  something that I've found difficult with other felt tip eyeliners. Plus the intestity of the colour doesn't change that much with the thickness of the line! Talking about pigmentation; it is called Intense Black and IS intense black! Wahoo, a product that finally lives up to its pigment promises oh my god I am sad. Plus, the staying power is amazing for a non-waterproof product. The amount of times I have cried had watery eyes and it hasn't budged until I have taken a makeup wipe to it. 

Overall it is a huge thumbs up from me, so if you are looking for a new felt tip liner and see this in store, I would definitely suggest picking it up. I have actually been complement on my eyeliner because of this bad boy - not often that happens I tell yaa.

Halloween Round Up

WARNING, this post is heavily loaded with pictures. As you can guess by the title this is a Halloween post! I know I know this is 20 days late, but I have finally got around to editing the pictures, writing this up, blah blah blah ... please stop me rambling. Anyway, I did have a load of Halloween tutorials to put up, but I was moving and everything was so manic I just had no time to get them up. But it seemed a shame for them to go to waste, so why not put them up 20 days after Halloween? because it is not normal sophy.

Day of the Dead Bride
This look was inspired by the beautiful YouTube beauty guru Nicole Guerriero, as she did a really cute version and I just wanted to do my own. My sister was really patient having this done, so I HAD to put this up. How mean would it be if she sat there for an hour and I did nothing with the pictures?
Vampire 
What is Halloween without a sexy vampire look? Messy hair, bruised looking eyes, and a load of blood... perfect. Oh, and I magically managed to create a gif, without actually doing anything but it looks kinda cool! 
Devil 
This Halloween Lauren wanted to be a devil (very fitting for her) and even though she didn't do this makeup for her costume, I just wanted to have some fun with red makeup. I love this because it clashes beautifully with her green eyes.
A few Halloween night snaps.
Now, just to warn you all of these were taken whilst my boyfriend (Chris), his housemate (Richie) & I where a little horrendously drunk.
All the looks that I created were mainly face paint based, so they are so easy to create. Halloween is one of my favourite nights of the year so I had to do at least one post dedicated to it, even if I missed the boat. Better late then never, right?
