I so so wanted to call this post ‘i’m blue dabba dee dabba di’ but wasn’t sure if people would get the reference…. missed opportunity. Anyways Benefit recently released a colourful range to their they’re real eyeliner and mascara collection and I’ve been feeling it… … I’m not a fan of the original they’re real mascara but after seeing pictures of the beyond blue (£19.50) version I knew I wanted a piece of the action.
I was super impressed with it the colour show off and just how normal it looks. I remember wearing blue mascara as a preteen who would have known that as a 24-year old I would be wearing it again. It’s so vibrant and fun and makes your eyes just look so much more appealing. I first applied it with my usual black eyeliner and found the black just darkened it so I decided to take off the black eyeliner… it got me thinking that perhaps blue eyeliner would pull it all together… I knew I wouldn’t be trying they’re real push up liner as I don’t work well with it at all so I headed to Boots to see what the high street brands had to offer me… I found the L’oreal super liner (£6.99) in this cobalt blue. I’m actually in love with this eyeliner and I need to get the black…. it makes such a great thin line and flick without any dragging and has great colour show off. I feel like a thin flick is just enough without going over the top with this look. I’ve definitely stumbled upon a gem there.
I thought I’d also share my little sisters take on this makeup look but with MACS ruby woo lipstick… I’m definitely not brave enough for this… but what a great summer time makeup. I decided to pick up ruby woo for her while I was in London… she’s been wanting it for so long. she definitely has the lips for it.
Thanks for reading
