THREE Renewing Powder Foundation 202

THREE Cosmetics, why are you so difficult to Google search?

Foundation swatches are so rare and even if there is, they are not compared to something most people are familiar with.  I purchased THREE Renewing Powder Foundation 202 unseen, would of got the cream foundation if I didn't have Chantecaille Future Skin already.  I also purchased Shiseido Maquillage True Powdery UV OC00 to compare, since it is more commonly found on google search.

By Terry Crayon Khol Terrybly - 9 Royal Navy and Rimmel Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Bright Blue

Can never have too much blue right?  I've been itching to get the By Terry pencil ever since I saw it at DAF.  I picked up the Rimmel in an ASOS order to compare the shades and the result is they are completely different.

First off, yay no bad reaction from either unlike my last blue eyeliner.

I like the By Terry pencil more, it is super pigmented, glides on beautifully and stays put.  Only down side is it goes blunt faster than an other pencil I have ever tried.  

The Rimmel one is not bad, just not pigmented in practice (on eyes) and a bit dry.

I had a bit of a play with the blue liners and they made good bases for purple shadows that either disappear or look wrong on my skin.  Suqqu's Ruridama palette wasn't a very flattering palette for me and Royal Navy was the best base for it so I could get the purple (top right) colour to show as as purple (almost like the bottom left shade but better) and not cool tone greys.

YSL EYELINER EFFET FAUX CILS - Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner 04 Sea Black

YSL Effet Faux-Cils Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner 04 Sea Black is quite a stunning eyeliner and I have been eyeing it for ages and I have finally purchased it in a birthday haul last month.

So pretty in person

So pretty right? I prefer the the look of it to the THREE eyeliner because no shimmer.

Unfortunately for me, this cream liner doesn't work for me... so sad :(  My eyes don't like it, it's a good product but my eyes are just too sensitive.

I think I will stick with black liner and pat blue eyeshadow over it from now on.
