EYE SPY WITH MY SMOKEY EYE // Eye Coal from Fat & The Moon

Anyone who knows me well enough, is fully aware of my love for glitter & sequins - so why wouldn’t I pull out all the stops this forthcoming week? A glittery twist on the classic smokey eye, since the Big Day is imminent.

I’d been researching the perfect smokey-eye component for Christmas 2016, so I was intrigued at first when I discovered on The Future Kept a little tin of Eye Coal by Fat & The Moon. I decided to give it a whirl knowing it was an all-natural product, and due to the fact that this inky balm was supplied in a solid tin-form as opposed to a chunky pencil or liquid.

I love the simplicity of this little container; inspired by tried and tested ingredients seen on their travels to India, this little tin of jet black goodness contains only 4 ingredients.

Sunflower Oil
Beeswax
Black Oxide Pigment
White Clay

This means less toxic fillers and junk, to provide a clean and gorgeous product that does exactly what it says on the tin.

Upon use - it’s fully matte and surprisingly not greasy. It stays exactly where it’s placed and doesn’t slip around the skin like you’ve rolled around in oil or crease up in the eyelid. It sat perfectly all day & is happy to be smudged around like an eyeshadow or with the right tool, perfected into the slickest cat eye flick.

I’ve used it both as an eyeliner & a shadow in these images, using no other eyeshadows, and dotted a little loose glitter under my eyes for a Festive Twinkle.

Merry Christmas guys, here's to 2017!

PERFECT PEEPERS // Volumising Mascara - GREEN PEOPLE

Last week I talked about my exploration into organic mascaras.. Having not yet made the transition across. And this week I’ve managed to get my mits onto the Volumising Mascara by fellow Sussex Locals, Green People.

Full of natural pigments and dowsed in Vitamin E, Sunflower Oil & Organic Beeswax, there is a big difference when applying this inky, sleek little number to my lashes first time.

Slick and not claggy, I was surprised to feel that my lashes seemed instantly nourished and full - rather than bogged down and flakey. Every comb allowed a silken coat; gliding on much smoother than what I am used to and the build up was very effective.

Non-messy or sticky, the wand holds more rigidity than a bushy, bristley wand - but I think this works in it’s favour for defining the lashes and coating them evenly.

I wasn’t expecting definition from a volumising mascara but I’ve been extremely impressed with the definition of my lashes on application - each individual lash seemingly more defined rather than just becoming more heavy upon loading. And they remained at their pre-application curled state so I didn’t need to re-curl to open the eyes up again.

There is an admirable simplicity in the packaging; a glossy black tube with exactly what it needs to say highlighted in a zero fuss font. Plus all the ingredients on the packet explained in a neat little box so you know exactly where you stand - and that is a luxe vegetarian, cruelty free, organic piece.
