It just hit me this weekend, I’m off on holiday from Thursday for two and half weeks…sounds great except I thought I had more time. You see, on Saturday my partner and I are completing our 4th Tough Mudder.
You would think with it being our 4th we would be quite fit and have a training schedule down, not so! He has an active job so he is used to walking around for miles a day. I sit at my desk and the only exercise I get is nipping outside for a puff on my Vape! I think it may kill me!
The only thing that could make me feel better after this stark realisation? Buying more makeup of course!
I was on the hunt for the newly launched Sophdoesnails Extra Spice palette in Superdrug but unfortunately my local one didn’t seem to have any in stock! Not to worry, a quick trip to Boots and Sports Direct gave me enough makeup to last me a while.
Obsession Makeup London
Being the Revolution Makeup fan that I am, I have been wanting to try Obsession for quite a while.
I bagged myself a lip kit, whitening foundation mixer and an eyeshadow palette.
I’ve tried the Revolution Lip Kits and I love them so don’t expect this to be much different. It comes with lip liner and liquid lipstick and costs £5. I picked up the shade Hook Up which looks like a pink-y nude shade – I’m still on the hunt for my shade but better and this looks like it could be a good match.
I picked up the foundation mixer as I have a few foundations that are too dark for me and rather than throwing them out, I thought I would give this a go. This costs £8 for 40ml and there was quite a few different kinds – whitener, darkener, peach, champagne and millionairess (?).
My main worry is that it will change the consistency of the foundation so the coverage won’t be as good but I look forward to trying it! Hopefully I will be able to get use out of some of my old foundations again.
Lastly, I picked up the Cool Down Eyeshadow Palette for £5. I feel like my focus lately has been on warm tones lately so I wanted to pick up something that was exclusively cool toned.
There are 3 shimmer shades and 5 matte colours. I like how this could be used exclusively for a natural look by using the browns or you can add a splash of colour with the purples, silver and gold.
I have only had one experience with Sleek Makeup products but I have heard so many good things about them I wanted to pick up a few more items.
I love the packaging for their Matte Me liquid lipsticks and have seen a few reviews for them. I got the shade Shabby Chic which looks like a nude pink but is much brighter when swatched.
If this is good, I can see myself buying the whole range! Luckily at £4.99, its not really breaking the bank!
I bought one of the Eau La La Liners in the shade Red Sky Night in the hope it would match the lipstick but if the liner is truer to the packaging shade I think it might be too light.
Again, this was £4.99 and even if it doesn’t match, I have so many lipsticks, I know I’ll be able to find one that it works with!
Lastly, I got the the I’m Conditioning Mascara for £7.99. This claims to promote strong, long, healthy lashes and helps them to grow. I got it in black (obviously!) and I hope I see a difference in my lashes from regular use.
I will of course give an update on this one once I’ve been wearing it for a few weeks. I might even take some before and after pictures if I remember.
I bought the Balance Boosting BB Cream and Core Cream Concealer in Fair.
Both of these contain SPF 20 which if they work is great since last year I got badly sunburned! These were £12.99 and £8.99, respectively.
The Sport Stamina Mascara was £7.99 and comes in a squeezable tube…this may be the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen for a mascara!
The last product I bought was the Shape Up Brow Pencil in Brunette for £7.99. This is going to be interesting since I never use a pencil to do my brows, I only ever use powder so this could go really well or really terribly!
I thought it would be quite fun to put the Sport FX makeup through its paces this weekend while I’m at Tough Mudder. What better way to test a brand that claims to be sweat proof, exercise proof, water proof and long-lasting at a 10 mile trail and obstacle run!
It’s likely by the end of the day, I’ll be so covered in mud that it might not be possible to see if I’m still wearing any base makeup but I expect my brows and eyelashes should show whether the test has been successful or not!
I will do my best to update you next Monday but I may need some extra time to recover! Apologies if that is the case! You can make sure you don’t miss my updates by following me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook or by subscribing to my blog.
If you could send some good vibes and luck my way that would be awesome as I’m slightly terrified this year! I think once I’ve recovered I’m going to start training again – I feel as weak as a kitten right now!
Have you tried any of the other products I bought today? Any colours you would recommend for my mythical “perfect lip colour”? What would you most like to see me review? What do you think will happen on Saturday – Will Sport FX do what it claims and make it through the course? Will I? Place your bets now! Let me know in the comments down below!
Thanks, as always for reading, I really do appreciate every view, like, comment and follow! It genuinely makes my day!
