Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder Review

Benefit, we meet again.
Hoola at a hefty £23.50
Hoola in all it's glory
I think the bronzer is such a great shade. It's not shimmery or sparkly nor overly warm or red toned when applied. It is quite pigmented and finely milled which is fantastic and to be honest, what I would expect at this price. I'm not sure how this would work on pale skin as I know bronzers can sometimes look "muddy" but on me (roughly MAC NC35), it works and blends beautifully. I don't actually use this as a bronzer but as a natural contour shade because I feel the flat tone works best for me that way.

DIY Bent Eyeliner Brush

I took a break from wearing makeup a few years back and since then, I realised I've been suffering from "makeup application amnesia" (this is a DIY post so this is a DIY diagnosis - I'm not medically qualified but I need to be cured!).

So I was reminiscing about the days when I was much better at applying liquid/cream eyeliner. But then I had a breakthrough... It's all about the tools! I remembered I had an ELF bent eyeliner brush back then and that I loved it. I also remember ruining it by butchering trimming and using it for some nail art. Yep, fit for the bin.

Primark's Hask Argan Oil Repairing Deep Conditioner Review

By now you're probably wondering how many argan oil products I buy and try. The answer is 'quite a lot'! Even though I try not to buy into trends, this one's got me hook line and sinker. Maybe it's the smell... They all seem to smell similar (and delicious). Who knows. Anyway! Back on track with this review.

Okay.  I was indulging in a quick bit of shopping and picked this up! Forgiveth me, I felt like treating myself seeing as I had time off work and hadn't had enough time recently to pamper myself. I've never really bought any beauty items from primark (apart from this essential) but the range seems to constantly evolve and it looks like there's something for everyone.
Hask Argan Oil Mask

This mask was £2 for 50ml which I thought was a bit pricey, a) because its primark and b) because its just a hair treatment! Granted, I could tell it contained a generous amount which is great for hairy curl heads like me but I guessed I'd only get two uses out if it maximum. Regardless, I thought I'd give it a go seeing as my hair is getting longer and needs a bit more love every now and then.
