Eyes & Eyebrows

Benefit Gimme Brow, Tweezerman Lash Comb & Cath Kidston Pouch

These are just a few bits I have picked up recently, the lash comb was an impulse buy in duty free and the gimme brow was me succumbing to the hype and finally purchasing it.
I think I would like this Tweezerman folding lash comb a lot more if it didn't fold and could actually stand up in my brush pot. I have a very very old lash & brow comb that is also folding for some reason but I was very happy to find a metal comb. The plastic ones are beyond useless and I am never able to separate individual lashes satisfactorily. It's real gold coated as well which is a nice touch. You can buy it here for £9.50.

Gimme Brow is famous for its' brow boosting capabilities and I am very glad I bought it. My usual routine of powder and gel/wax to hold wasn't cutting it anymore as it took too much of my precious pre-work mornings up. This is much quicker and gives a fantastic result.

The Cath Kidston pouch is too cute, I actually wanted the one with the beefeaters on it but they only had the display one in stock in BHV and it was marked. It was only €7 though so there's definitely the possibility to make a collection of them. They are really practical and I use them to organise stuff in large handbags without compartments.

MAC Lady Danger

MAC Lady Danger

I've been experimenting more with orange-reds recently and I knew Lady Danger was a shade I had to buy. I have wanted this for so long as it's such a stunning matte shade. I could never justify buying it when I knew I was too scared to wear it out of the house. I'm over that, so it was high time I bought it. 
MACs Lady Danger is the perfect powerfully bright orange-red. It suits my skin tone really well and I'm really glad I bought it.

Homeoplasmine

Homeoplasmine

This pomade is a household staple as a multi-purpose fit-it-all product that I can't believe we don't sell in the UK. 
Homeoplasmine is a mixture of herby extracts, boric acid and vaseline that makes for an anti-septic healing balm that I'm happy I found. I use it on really chapped lips or cracked hands or on scratches and scrapes. 
I have tried using it as an overnight lip balm and my lips have been lovely in the morning. I am not a fan of vaseline at all, it's not good to my lips and it feels horrible. Homeoplasmine actually feels like its settling in and doing good as well as forming a barrier between my skin and germs!
Have you tried Homeoplasmine?
