Shattered FOTD and more upsetting news

Hi all,

Purple and taupe today as I couldn't resist trying out the UD Shattered Face Case. Hated the lip colour on me but I love the eyeshadows and blushes.

As for the upsetting news, I nearly passed out whilst shopping today. I was fine when all of a sudden, everything seemed to shift around. Thankfully, it passed quickly but it was absolutely terrifying. Off to the doc again next week for more tests. So sick of all this now.






Products used:
Face:
-Usual primer, foundation, concealers, powders and contour product and
-light pink blush and highlighter from UD Shattered Face Case.
Eyes:
-UDPP
-GOSH eyeshadow stick in Purple (old style twist up one)
-UD Shattered palette
-UD eyeliner in Zero
-BE Flawless Definition mascara and
-Boots Natural Collection Water Guard mascara.
Lips:
-NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee.

Another day, another lippie fail FOTD and bonus sad update

Hi all,

Another disappointing lip product sadly. It was too slippy and greasy and would not apply evenly no matter what I did so I'm afraid it'll have to go. Is there no such thing as vampy DS brand lip colours with nice textures? They all seem to be so patchy and greasy.

And the bonus sad update is this: My doc won't help me any more. I went to see him today as I now feel ill all the time and he just gave me anti-nausea tablets, blamed it on my 'deep clinical depression' and gave me a counselling leaflet. I feel constantly woozy and sick, I ache all over and feel exhausted all the time. I have no social life as I have to keep cancelling as I don't feel well enough. It might not seem serious to him but it's ruining my life. I feel so completely alone in all this.

Anyway, onto the FOTD:






Products used:
Face:
-Usual primer, foundation, concealers, powders and contour product
-Dainty Doll cream blush in 003 and
-Boots No 7 Instant Radiance highlighter (chubby twist up stick thing).
Eyes:
-UDPP
-Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier in Bangalore
-Various shades from Sleek Vintage Romance and Ultra Mattes V2 palette
-Boots No 7 Stay Perfect eyeshadow in Innocence (brow bone)
-MUG Gel liner in Mobster
-Maybelline Full & Soft mascara and
-Boots Natural Collection Water Guard mascara.
Lips:
-Maybelline clear lipliner and
-Maybelline Midnight Plum lipstick.
