Too Faced Shadow Insurance review

After finally accepting that my Urban Decay Primer Potion (UDPP) was done and dusted, I decided to try the much-lauded Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer instead.

 As much as I love my UDPP, it's annoying that it dries out so quickly before you've even used up half the tube. The Too Faced primer comes in an easy to dispense tube and I don't see this drying out anytime soon.

The product itself is nice and creamy and goes on a little easier than the UDPP in my opinion. I also feel that a little goes a long way and it blends in with my skin tone more easily than the UDPP.

The first time I used this, I was in love. It glided on so beautifully and I loved the packaging. However, by 7:00 p.m. I had drastically changed my mind. My eyeshadow had CREASED! *Shock and horror* I seriously can't remember the last time I had creased eyeshadow (maybe in the last millennium) and I was so disappointed. Granted, it was major creasing but that's like saying it wasn't a major death. Creasing is creasing.

I have super-oily eyelids so I'm always aware of creasing eyeshadows. I made sure I let the product dry before applying my eyeshadow and yet it still creased. However, despite this creasing disaster I'd still recommend this to those of you without oily skin. This is the first Too Faced product I've ever tried but I won't let this disappointment put me off their other products. (I've swatched their eyeshadows before and they're lovely.)

I'm still going to try and finish the tube but since Urban Decay have re-jigged the design of their UDPP, I'm going back to them with open arms.

I'd give this product an 8/10

Love, life and lipgloss


Quick OOTD

I've been an absent blogger again, I know. I've been busy drowning in school work, giving up, and then feeling sorry for myself. Right now I'm in 'Domzy must find a job at soon as possible" mode so wish me luck! I have another OOTD for you guys. I hope you don't get bored of them and I don't like to do too many of them anyway because I'm that girl that once she likes something, she'll wear that thing to death!

At the moment, these Aldo wedges are doing it for me. I love, love, love them so much and I'm convinced that they go with everything. I paired them with my Ted Baker straw clutch that I'd forgotten I owned (the perils of having far too many bags for my own good).

I think I need a new blazer, the tattiness of this one is just plain embarrassing....

Trousers: ASOS
Top: Primark
Blazer: Talbots
Clutch: Ted Baker
Necklace: Accessorize

Love, life and new jobs!
