Beauty First Impressions

When I collected the results of my reader survey, one respondent said they'd like to see more in the way of beauty first impressions. Lately I've bought a lot of beauty products so it's the perfect time to give this a go! Just like my book speed reviews, I've written mini beauty reviews that are less than 140 characters.
Benefit Gimme Brow
Perfect colour for my brows. No clumps or uneven patches. Takes a little bit of product to create an effect. Easy to apply and defines well.

Garnier Micellar Water
Squirts out really fast! Very good with eye make up (Stings if it goes in the eye though- don't do this!). Leaves slight sticky residue.

Soap & Glory Archery Brow
BEST THING EVER! Easy to use but fiddly brushes. Wax & comb perfectly define eyebrow. Shadow a bit light (only one shade) but looks amazing. 

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer

Little goes a long way! Slightly too yellow for my skin- only 2 shades. Love the handy packaging. Powder puff gets very dirty. Ew!

Pssst: Read the full review here.

Soap & Glory Fat Supercat
Easy to apply but very hard to correct mistakes & tendency to rub off when layered. Lasts ages- no smudging or transferring.

Sanctuary Spa Feather-Light Moisture Spray
Light, even spray. Strong fruity floral scent- possibly grapefruit and lily. Leave skin feeling refreshed but not particularly moisturised. 

Natural Collection Corrector Stick
Very pale- perfect for my skin. Neutralises red skin well but doesn't help spots much. Tendency to rub off when blending.

  1. Loved this review! I must try the soap and glory archery brow now!

    Love Jacyntaxxx

  2. This is a cool idea for a post!

  3. I've been trying the Garnier Micellar Water too. I agree that it comes out really fast and sometimes that makes my face too wet. Does that make sense?!

    1. I am SO glad you said this! I thought it was just me!

  4. The Sanctuary moisture spray just sounds like it will smell amazing.


  5. There's so hype about Garnier Micellar Water. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like something I'd definitely keep.

  6. I really like these short reviews :)
    The Garnier micelar water is so good at removing makeup, but it definitely comes out of the bottle too quickly! x

  7. Fab post, your photos look uh-may-zing. I have to put this out there - Garnier Micellar Water - I've got some real beef with it. As I begin writing this, I've just remembered that I may have already commented on another one of your posts ranting about my dissatisfaction with this stuff, so I'm going to stop now rather than look like the village lunatic. I've tried the bath soak alternative of the Sanctuary Spray you've reviewed here and although the smell was lovely, it really didn't bubble up much at all. Ultimately, I'm going to stop typing now because it's becoming evident I don't have much love for any products these days and I sound like one of the most miserable people on this earth hahaha



I read all comments and appreciate every single one, even if I can't always reply. If you have a question or need a reply, feel free to tweet me @BeckyBedbug- I always reply to tweets!
