Jane Wonder || Currently Testing Beauty Products

Hiya everyone ♡

I thought I would update everyone on the products I am currently testing. I often feel very under-qualified to review products, especially when it’s comparing to other products. Like, if I test a mascara and say it’s amazing – I haven’t used every mascara on earth so maybe it’s not that great and I only think so because it’s one of the most amazing ones that I have tried…
So, please keep in mind, that while I get the opportunity to test and use many products I most certainly am not an expert. I am giving my opinions on products, and you are free to agree and disagree. I hope that I have readers that trust my judgement, as I do with a handful of bloggers, and will only have positive experiences with my recommendations 🙂
Anyways, inferiority-complex aside, these are the products I am trying this month. I have started using a keener eye when testing beauty products so that I can review them the best way possible…

H&M Blusher Brush
What they say:
This range is no longer available in H&M, I bought it in June but it is so pretty that I haven’t used it yet. I will be using it as a contouring brush though, not a blush brush.

This is the big test for me. Which one will work best?? I am currently testing POREfessional, I am using it one day or two and then not using it and determining its efficacy. Then, I will have to test each one on a different day and see which works best. It’s a stressful process, I tell ya!

The I ♥ stage – eyeshadow base is the star of the show! It is multifunctional and can either be used as a base for concealer or eyeshadow. The creamy texture won’t settle in the crease of your eyelid – it makes every eyeshadow last longer and intensifies the color. For a smooth eye make-up that is just waiting for its grand appearance in the spotlight.

  1. I have both the L'Oreal and Maybelline primers and love them both, although it took me a long time to get on good terms with the Nude Magique one – I couldn't quite understand how to use it properly. Now I love it! I have about 6 different primers that I rotate depending on what look I'm going for.

    I have the Catrice eyeshadowl base which is great, but will definitely give the Essence one a try next. Apparently NYX has an HD one that is really good.

    That brush is gorgeous!!!!!

    P.s. I bought the Bamboo Thickening Cream after reading your last post. Tried it this morning for the first time, and I really like it! xxx

    1. Which primer do you like best? I am doing a legit comparison over a period of time, it's quite stressful! Hehe

      Don't try the Essence one yet, let me see how it goes 😉

      I am so glad you also like the Bamboo Thickening Cream, do you also feel like your hair (whilst amazingly voluminous) is a bit dry?
