what's on my face - estee lauder & mua

Hey guys! This is a bit of a long post because I've done a couple of reviews (ish) so bare with! You can quickly find the products I used below though :)

Estee Lauder Eye Shadow Palette Shades 60 Sugar Biscuit Satin and 63 Tempting Mocha Shimmer
Black Jillian Dempsey at Avon kohl liner
Rimmel Glam Eyes in Black
Maybelline Colossal Volume Express

These two shadows are gorgeous. I love to put 63 (the darkest) all over my lid and blend out into 60, making sure to put it on my brow bone to highlight. I also like to just line my eyes to give them a bit of impact. I use the Rimmel Glam Eye liquid liner, which I'm not a huuuuge fan of, I don't like the brush, it's very thin and the hairs go all over the place, but it leaves a lovely colour that only needs one coat. I then bring an eyeliner from the Jillian Dempsey range at Avon under my eye until around the middle of my eye, and blend this out. I love the contrast between white ice and dark eyes, so this look goes perfect. For extra impact, I add a couple more layers of my current favourite mascara and put a healthy coating on my bottom lashes too. 

Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown
MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit

I've recently fallen out of love with my Rimmel pencil, I don't like the ginger tinge it often leaves - it makes it really difficult to wear some eyeshadows, anyone else find this the case? After asking loads of people for their favourite kit, this came up trumps and I really do rate it! I wish they did it in like, set of colours, like Dark Brown, Light Brown and Blonde, because I now have two shades that I can't do anything with. 
Although I don't love the pencil anymore, I like to get the shape with it, so then all I have to do is shade with the kit as I really don't like the brush they gave us (but I'm on the hunt for a new one!). They don't look cakey or anything which I'm glad about, and I'm really loving this definitely brown shade, not ginger!

MaxFactor FaceFinity Foundation (review here)
Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer 
MUA Powder in Shade 2
MUA Cream Blush in Yummy

Everyone knows how much I love this foundation, so I won't bore you! The primer I'm indifferent about. It's good, but nothing to scream about. Now I bought the cream blush yesterday. I'd never tried one before and had no idea what to expect. I found it quite difficult. I used my fingers because I thought it would be much easier to blend, but I think I used far too much at first because I was blending for ages! Then I couldn't quite get them even, I ran out of time and just had to leave them be :(. They don't look awful though, very natural. Of course, I set the look with the MUA powder as I've ran out of Rimmel Stay Matte! 

 What do you think to my look then? Find yourself doing/using anything similar? Let me know :)

Look at the icy cobweb by the way, how cute is that!
