Hated // Loved 2

Today's post is a 'sequel' to a post I have written before.

A few months ago I wrote a post entitled, 'Hated // Loved' when I was going through an odd writing patch. What seemed like an average post to me has become one of my most popular, and today I have another.

Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo- On and On Bronze

I have a love hate relationship with this product. There are days where it looks great on my eyes and days where it doesn't. I think this is because I went for a colour I wasn't 100% and preferred a different one that was out of stock. The lasting power on this product is fantastic, and I love using it as a base/primer rather than my Painterly Paint Pot from Mac. For me, the trick is to blend the colour out, however I have little eyelids, meaning I need the tiniest amount of product in order to have a nice subtle eye look. 

MAC Maleficent Lipgloss in Anthurium (Limited Edition)

I've mentioned before how this lipgloss had limited lasting power, yet I haven't stopped myself from trying ways to improve the wear of it. More often that not I was trying the combo paired with MAC Lady Danger, and it wasn't making the cut. However, after recently trying to work the gloss with Ruby Woo, it works! I love Ruby Woo but finds it dries on the centre of my lips just a bit too much, so this combination is great! (Obviously this lipgloss was limited edition, however MAC and other brands do similar.)

Max Factor Masterpiece Waterproof Mascara

I started to use this product for all but one reason, my original Masterpiece Mascara ran out and rushing around in Boots I picked up the wrong one, having never been a waterproof mascara fan in the past. Not wanting to waste my money I decided to use it until it ran out, and now I have repurchased the mascara twice, I love it. I have naturally curly and thick eyelashes, meaning that I need a mascara to hold my curl. Oh my goodness. This mascara keeps my eyes looking like I've just put mascara on all day. (And lets also mention to all hay fever sufferers, it doesn't even budge when the eyes are streaming!)

Mac Harmony Bronzer

Apart from my limited edition Toledo blush, this was the first colour from MAC I decided to go for, and I'm not too sure why. There are days where I love wearing this as a little bit of bronzer/blush combined, there are days where I hate it. Right now I am loving it as I need a bit more colour on my cheeks!

Real Techniques Duo Fibre Set

If I am honest, I still don't 100% love these brushes, and I think it is because I simply don't use products that generally get used on these brushes. The eye brush comes in useful when I am highlighting the inner corner, but as for the other two, I found they did nothing. I did recently purchase the Urban Decay Illuminator/Highlighter in Aura, and I have found that the cheek brush works well for that in small doses, however I think I would stick to the general range of brushes in the future.

So thats all the products I have been loving/hating recently, what are yours?
