I was sent a few eye bases from Love-Makeup recently. I was excited to receive these products because I've always had issues with eye make up not lasting that long on my eyes and it was great to be able to try some products out- especially products which I had my eye on for some time.
The first is the Lime Crime Eye Shadow Helper. This was something I was really excited about because I have very oily eyelids and find it so difficult to get eye shadow to stay on my lids uncreased. Although I have a few bases that work well as primers, I'm always on the lookout for more that will keep eye shadow on a little longer.
The only downside to it is that you do need a waterproof eye make up remover to take it off completely. The product is difficult to get off with just a normal make up remover. For a lot of people, this could be a good thing though, knowing that it won't melt off after a few hours.
I also received two cream eye shadows by Michael Todd. I have never tried their products before but have always been watching and reading reviews on them since they launched last year.
The second shade is 'Flutter'. This is a champagne shade and it also has gold shimmer in it. Both are very creamy and easy to apply. They blend pretty well too although I did find that 'Michael Todd' was a tiny bit uneven. They are very similar to MAC's paint pots, which is an advantage since I really like paint pots and use them often.
I mainly wanted to see how soon these cream shadows crease after application. I found that they last a pretty long time. For me, they lasted around 6 hours before creasing. This for me, is actually pretty good.
Love Makeup were also kind enough to send me something as a little extra, which was a pack of The Brush Guard.
Thanks once again to Love-Makeup for sending me the products, you can purchase these items at www.love-makeup.co.uk
