5 shades of grey...


Yes I meant 5 not 50.lol!:) As it is valentines season I thought I might as well incorporate this highly anticipated film into a blog post. My husband and I don't buy into the whole 'Valentines' tradition as we feel people end up buying things that are more than likely not needed just for the sake of it which of course is such a waste of money, also every moment should be appreciated with loved ones. On valentines we will more than likely get a Marks and Spencer's meal deal and sit in and watch a film, I know we are such party animals.lol!

So back to what I love doing best, looking through my makeup stash and finding things I forgot I had. I have had four of these products for probably over a year now and I forgot how great they all are.

  • Inika eyeliner in graphite - I like using this as a lower lash line colour as sometimes I think black is too harsh on a day to day basis.  Inika is a natural makeup brand, this eyeliner is vegan and organic. As they are a certified organic, cruelty-free, Halal and Vegan brand I am very interested in trying more of their products, I would love to hear if you've tried any. 
  • Bourjois smoky effect in 74 grey shadow - as the name suggests this is a great product to create a lovely smokey eye. It's so easy to use, just line your upper eye and blend with a smudge brush. This product does come with a small brush on the end but I don't think it works that well. Unfortunately this colour must be discontinued as I can't find it on the Boots or Superdrug website.
  • NYX jumbo pencil in slate - this colour is such a lovely grey tone with just a tint of black. I find it really easy blend and I would love to try more of their colours, I already have the cult colour milk.
  • Eyeko fat eye stick in smoke - this is my newest product which I received in a recent Birchbox. I have only used it once and I was really impressed with it.  It's more of a night time colour and a brilliant crease colour to give depth to a smokey eye.
  • Collection eyeshadow pencil in gunmetal glitz - to me this product stands out from the rest as it is blendable and waterproof (I have to really rub to get it off), not to mention it is only £3.19. There are 6 shades in this product and I definitely want to try them all.
Below are some swatches and just look how beautiful these shades of grey are!
