Essence Designer Eyebrow Pencil Review and Photos

Essence Eyebrow Designer Pencil
The Eyebrow Designer comes in five shades including,
- 01 Black Eyebrow Designer 1g
- 02 Dark Brown Eyebrow Designer 1g
- 04 Blonde Eyebrow Designer 1g
- 05 Soft Blonde Eyebrow Designer 1g
- 07 Dark Chocolate Eyebrow Designer 1g

The Essence Designer Eyebrow is a brow pencil with a brush that's for anyone and everyone to help give definition and shape or to fill in sparse brows.

The Essence Eyebrow Pencil retails for £1.50.

Each brow pencil is simply packaged in the colour of the pencil and comes with a handy brush within the top to help with grooming and blending out.

As I mentioned above you can use this in two ways to either define the brows or to fill in any gaps you may have. I usually use the brush to groom my brows first then I define them by drawing in the shape I want to achieve as well as using the pencil to add tiny hair strokes in the areas that need a little more fullness. Lastly, you can use the brush again to blend out any harsh lines and you can even pop this in your handbag for on the go touch ups.

With regards to how long-wearing they are, I would say the colour lasts a majority of the day just like any other brow pencil, however, if you want to ensure your brows are completely bulletproof, then I would go in with a little brow powder over the top and then something like the Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara to finish and set everything into place.

The shelf life of the pencils is 36 months once opened.

Wilko stores and online here.

This is a lovely simple eyebrow pencil for the price if you want something that's easy, fuss-free and travel-friendly. I love the fact that all the shades have a nice colour pay off without looking too harsh and you can even use two shades if you want to do more of an ombre brow as there is definitely a shade to suit most hair colours. As with any brow pencil, this does need sharpening to maintain the perfect point for drawing in the hairs but overall the Designer Eyebrow Pencil is ideal for any beginner out there who wants something that is affordable, easy to use and compact.

I award the Essence Designer Eyebrow Pencil a 4.3 out of 5

Evening Skincare Routine - Skincare Diary #2

Skin Care Routine UK
Welcome back to my 2nd Skin Care Diary! I've been testing out alot of new products from my Singapore Beauty Haul and loving everything I've tried so far. I also have a post going up this week all about Poundland's new skin care line, so keep your eyes peeled for that. In the meantime here's my evening skin care routine from this past Thursday. I had a make up free day so I kept my skin care routine a little more simple.
1. I had a makeup free day so I kept it simple with this Jurlique Revitalising Cleansing Gel*.
2. I also used this Daiso Konjac Sponge with the Cleanser.
3. Next I gave my face a spritz with the Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray*.
4. I tested out one of these Tomato Collagen Masks from Watsons I loved how well they fitted to the face thanks to the ear holes!
5. To finish I used the Aldi Lacura Midnight Power Eye Gel.
6. And the Poundland Anti-Ageing Night Cream.
7. Herione Make Eyelash Serum.
8. EOS Lip Balm* in Wildberry.

Hey guys, I hope you're all having a great weekend so far! I wanted to start a new series on my blog where I share with you my Evening Skin Care Routines. I've been sharing a lot more skincare content over on the PPB Instagram here but I also wanted to document my routines over here too. But first, let me give you a bit of a background to my skin type. I have Normal/Combination Skin, I often get the odd spot mostly on my chin and I am in my Mid 30's. You can also message me on Instagram if you want to know any more additional information about my skin type. So without further ado here's my Nighttime Skincare Routine from Wednesday.

- Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Eye Cream 15ml
- Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Serum 30ml & 50ml
- Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Moisturising Lotion 50ml

Thanks to its unique blend of powerful botanical extracts including Yarrow Extract and Viola tricolor extract the Herbal Recovery Range aims to reduce the signs of ageing, improve the skin's texture and overall help the skin appear more youthful. They also test all their products out on real women.

To discover more about the collection and each product separately you can also visit the Jurlique website here*.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Mist* £32
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Eye Cream* £38
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Serum* 30ml £55 & 50ml £85
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Moisturising Lotion* £50
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Moisturising Cream* £50

Each product is packaged in a stunning rose/pink ombre glass jar or bottle and everything additionally comes in an informative yet stunning box.

Herbal Recovery Signature Mist - With ingredients such as revitalising Nasturtium, Rose and Marshmallow Root, the signature mist can be used any time of a day as either a refreshing pick me up (I keep mine in the fridge on warm days) or after your cleansing step in your morning or evening skincare routine. This mist is not only refreshing but it primes, softens and soothes the skin ready for your next step in your skincare routine.

Herbal Recovery Signature Eye Cream  - This antioxidant-rich eye cream can be used both in the morning and evening. Take a tiny amount on your ring fingers and press this in around the eye area or use after you have applied the Signature Serum below. This Signature Eye Cream has so many benefits that help to hydrate, brighten, de-puff, firm and fight wrinkles and fine lines around the delicate eye area.

Herbal Recovery Signature Serum - The Signature Serum can be used morning and evening to revitalise, restore and hydrate the skin. And with an incredible mix of ingredients such as the Red Clover Flower extract (which is grown on the Jurlique Farm), this stunning serum can help fight uneven skin tones, lines and wrinkles. Use 1-2 pumps and press gently into the face, neck and décolletage.

Herbal Recovery Signature Moisturising Lotion - This Moisturizing Lotion has a powerful mix of ingredients including Japanese Cedar Bud Extract which helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as smooth, protect and replenish the skin. Again use 1-2 pumps of this lightweight lotion morning and evening or use after the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Eye Serum and Eye Cream for best results.

Herbal Recovery Signature Moisturising Cream - Warm up a tiny amount in your hands and apply to the face, neck and décolletage morning and evening or just like the lotion after the Signature Serum and Eye Cream. This Signature Moisturising Cream is slightly thicker than the lotion and aims to again nourish, protect, replenish and smooth the skin as well as illuminate and help the skin feel firmer overall.

Thanks to its potent mix of natural ingredients each product has, it's own individual expiry date that can be found on the bottom of the box.

Jurlique*, Feel Unique*, Look Fantastic* and Beauty Expert*.

I have to say this is one of the most stunning premium collections of skincare I have ever used! There is truly so much thought, passion and consideration behind each product and Jurlique really do pride themselves on not only making wonderful products but growing and harvesting the ingredients at their organic farm in the South Australian Hills.

Each product is packaged beautifully and I love the fact that all of the boxes clearly explain what the product does, what are the key ingredients and how to use it. For me, the Herbal Recovery Collection as a whole works incredibly well together or to compliment other skincare products you may be using within your daily routine. I personally love using all of the products together for the ultimate pamper routine!

Finally application wise, all of the products not only smell divine but feel incredibly lightweight and luxurious on the skin. They also sink into the skin straight away and always make my skin feel hydrated pampered and nourished. I've been using the collection for two months now and so far so good, my skin looks brighter, my fine lines look less visible and my overall complexion feels and looks better. I will have to give you an update on my final thoughts and my score out of 5 once I've finished these products, but as of right now I'm really loving how easily this range has slotted into my morning and evening skincare routine.

Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights Review and Swatches

Pixi Fairy Lights 
There are five Liquid Fairy Lights to choose from including,
- Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights Crystalline 5g
- Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights SunRay 5g
- Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights RoseGold 5g
- Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights BareBrilliance 5g
- Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights PassionLights 5g

Infused with rose extracts and chamomile these long-wearing liquid eyeshadows can be used to add a pop of sparkle to any eye look. Wear them alone or on top of another shadow for the ultimate party look. Suitable for anyone who loves a dash of sparkle!

Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights £15 each.

Each shadow comes boxed in a beautiful holographic box with everything you need to know located on the back of the box. The shadow itself has a long doe foot applicator wand for ease of application.

Apply the product directly onto the eye with the wand and blend out with a brush or apply with your finger over the top of another shadow.

12 months once opened.

Pixi, Cult Beauty*, Marks and Spencer*, ASOS* and Look Fantastic*.

These liquid shadows are insanely pigmented, sparkly and long-wearing and I actually really love the fact that although these are super glittery, they are all totally wearable neutral shades. I personally love wearing either Rose Gold or Bare Brillance as an eyeshadow base and then going over the top with a similar shadow shade for a more toned down everyday look and then if I wanted to amp it up of an evening, I could then go in with a little more of the fairy lights on top.

The only thing I would say is despite these being long-wearing you do get a bit of glitter fall out throughout the day, but I think that is to be expected with this kind of formula. Either way, the Liquid Fairy Lights are truly stunning whether you're after a touch of twinkle onto a bare lid or you just love a full-on glam look!

Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights 4.7 out of 5
