Cheapsmells: Part 2

The second part of my order from cheapsmells finally came (Yay) and I was so pleased with what was delivered. The products that I ordered were:
♥ Revlon ColorStay foundation in 110 Ivory
♥ NARS Cream Eyeshadow in El Dorado
♥ BeneFit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Slippin' n Dippin'

Sorry for the awful picture

I had bought Revlon's ColorSaty foundation about a year ago in 150 Buff Chamois ( I'm a lot more pasty and pale like a vampire now that's why I bought Ivory haha), and I loved the medium to full coverage so I thought I'd give it another go as I'd run out of my curent foundation. I work 12.5 hour shifts and this foundation stays on for the whole shift and is suprisingly really moisturising. I use a GOSH 324 foundation brush to apply and then set the foundation with Rimmel's Silky Loose Powder in Translucent and I find that this works well together.

The Nars Cream eyeshadow whas something that I thought I'd just give a go and I'm so glad I did. It's a shimmery, bright golden colour in the pan but on application ( I use my finger as I feel it works better than a brush) it was more of a bronzy colour. I think it is really well pigmented and the shimmer isn't too much for an everday look. To stop the shadow from creasing I use Too faced Shadow Insurance and then apply the shadow. I would highly recommend this cream eyeshadow if you want an everyday versatile look.

BeneFit has to be one of my favourite make up brands and this shimmery coral/orangey (technical term there haha) cream eyeshadow has just confirmed my love for it. It is so pigmented and is perfect if built up on its own or under a neutral shade, I was a bit skeptical of the 'Creasless' tag that had been used but it actually doesn't crease even when no eye primer was used. This shade is perfect for the summer as it warms up the eyes and if used with an angled brush it creates the perfect eye liner.

I love all four of my purchases from as I can use them all for an everyday look or when I'm on a night out and will definitely be using the website again. ♥.


  1. Love nars el dorado!! I've never ordered from cheapsmells before, I need to check it out. :)

  2. It's such a lovely colour isn't it, you really should try cheapsmells, their prices are amazing and delivery in the uk is mostly free I think ( don't quote me on that ha) xx
