Rimmel Magnif'eyes: a double ended meh



It is well documented that due to my sensitive skin and overactive tear ducts I tend to avoid eyeliners. I've experimented with all types of liner; kohl, liquid, gel, powder. You name it, I've tried it and cried it off. 

Rimmel Magnif'eyes is the latest in a short line of crayon style kohl eyeliners that I've tried and I was really hoping for more from it. The pointed liner tip and rounded shimmery shadow stick are both beautfully soft and creamy. Too soft actually... Too creamy. They don't set! Every time I blinked I could feel them shift on my skin and crease in my lid and this was after I had spent a good five minutes blending out the shadow to make it look acceptable. 

Now I don't normally write reviews like this. I firmly believe that if you don't have something nice to say then don't say anything at all. But I do think there are people who would like this product. I think if you want to practice your blending skills but don't have the confidence to dip into multiple eyeshadows then this could be for you. If you're going for a serious grungey look but, again, don't want to use a tonne of different products or spend a huge amount of time on it then this could also be the one. Or if you want to completely forget that they eyeshadow stick exists and just want to use it as a super soft liner crayon then this may be your port of call. Although personally I'd go for the £1 Primark kohl crayon instead. They're pretty much exactly the same and you'll save a fiver. 

I purchased my Magnif'eyes at Boots for 
£6.99.

The Ordinary by The Abnormal Beauty Company (or how I dipped my toe in to Deciem)

  The Ordinary by the Abnormal Beauty Company ; If you haven't heard about this cult brand yet then you might not know they are hot shit right now and with their parent company, Deciem , being bought up by Estée Lauder they're only going to get bigger.   The internet has been a buzz for months now with beauty gurus far and wide raving about these high end products for low end prices. I couldn't believe it myself when I saw that there wasn't a product in the range that cost more than 8.00 quid!  So I joined the cult. I have to say that I was really impressed by the counter staff in House Of Fraser Belfast , they were friendly, knowledgeable and able to point me in the direction of the products I needed with just a short chat about my skin. I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% and the Niacinimide 10% Serums. If you have no idea what these mean then basically the Hyaluronic is for hydration and, whilst The Ordinary say that Niacinimide combats blemishes, I would actua

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me. As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes. I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that. Until now. Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have ano

Faeriwood Eats: Six By Nico Belfast Review

Nico, surveying his diners Six By Nico . A new concept restaurant for Belfast, and a welcome addition to the cathedral quarter, brought to us from Edinburgh and Glasgow.  6 courses rotating every 6 weeks for only 28.00 and you’re going to want to keep up with them because once they’re gone, they’re gone. With themes such as Vietnamese street food and Parisien cuisine, even a Disney theme being featured in their past menus I am looking forward to seeing what Nico and his team will come up with for Belfast. From talking to them though I found out that their first 3 menus will be inspired by Northern Ireland itself and with some of the best produce in the world and one of the most interesting cultures and histories that will be something to see!  First up is their debut menu, inspired by the humble chip shop, The Chippie menu takes the old standards and modernises them to levels you may be more used to seeing in Michelin level restaurants but with a very un-Michelin price poi
