    Hey beauty lovers! It’s Tolani and Emma here, and we are both really into beauty products. So we decided to review some for you.


    For this review we tried a range of products, skin care, eye liners and brushes. Just a nice mix of products.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

    First up, we tried the H&M Face Masks. This was a big ask for us, because we are both a little bougie when it comes to skin care.


    H&M have a whole heap of these colourful tubs for all different skin concerns.

    So here we are without any makeup on, and as you can see, we both need something to brighten our skin.


    Yep! We have actually, out of our own free will, put this picture on the internet. What a sight to see.


    Emma tried the Coconut Water mask which has shea and cocoa butter and is meant to be for dry skin. and I used Raspberry Leaf peel-off mask, this has added vitamin E and and it's recommended for combination skin.

    Ok we were both a little sceptical, but these masks were actually pretty good.


    Tolani: So this worked better than I expected. My skin felt better and it looked less greasy. My mask was a peel off one, and it didn't hurt when I peeled it off. I have used peel off masks before and the pain is just too much for me. The mask has a raspberry smell to it which I didn't like but it's not too offensive. I'll be honest I'm really surprised at how good this is, plus it's under two quid. Happy days.

    Emma: This smelt a bit chemically and definitely stung a bit when I had it on, but in all fairness I am ridiculously sensitive (in every way) . The results were very good though! My skin felt soft, and looked smoother and less red I thought!

    Next we tried the Eloise Tear Drop Brush. Which you have probably seen on every beauty Instagram account ever.


    This brush is made up of velvet soft synthetic bristles.The tear drop shape is apparently designed for precision, control and flawless application. It has a slight slant to it, which makes it easier to apply makeup on hard to reach places, like around the nose and under the eyes.

    This is the fanciest brush we have ever used. Like ever!


    Tolani: Do you want to know what this feel like? It feels like money, If money was soft on the skin and applied foundation on flawlessly. It's so good, I was already sold on the look of the brush, but for it to work so well too, I'm in love. The bristles feel amazing, and the shape really does make applying foundation easier. It's a little pricey for me, because I normally use beauty blenders to apply foundation, but it's gold and shiny so I would definitely buy it.

    Emma: THIS WAS SO FANCY! I love this so much. It made me feel like a beautiful Youtube blogger, who can do makeup properly and always looks amazing, even though we all know that’s not the case. But I felt like that inside and that’s what counts right? Also, this 100% made my foundation looks way nicer than it usually does when I apply it with my fingers, like, just smoother and more *blended*.

    We then tried the Mai Couture Highlighter Papier.


    This is basically highlighter on paper. It's a little book of shimmery paper, that's designed for when you are on the go, and don't fancy carrying your compact and brush.

    This pack contains 50 Sheets of Highlighter Papier.

    The shade we picked, St Barts, is meant to be for all skin tones. But it didn't show up on my skin, so here's what Emma thought.


    In all honestly, I think the whole sheets in a packet thing is a bit of a gimmick – there was loads of highlighter left on the sheet when I was done using it, so I think you end up wasting product. But, it’s very convenient. Like if you’re applying highlighter when you’re out and about this is much easier than cracking out a brush and palette. So swings and roundabouts. The actual product is good, I like the colour and it gives a nice shimmer.

    We then tried the 3ina The Color Kajal because eyeliner means a lot to the both of us.


    This range of eyeliners comes in eight different colours. It's a creamy liner that's meant to be easy to apply. I tried on the blue shade while Emma tried the purple shade.

    Oh hello coloured eyeliner!

    Tolani: So never in my life have I thought about wearing eyeliner that isn't black, let alone blue eyeliner. I don't know where I read it, but I remember reading a beauty tip that said people with dark skin shouldn't wear blue eye makeup . And I would like to call bullshit on this. I am kinda into this colour on me. I would wear it in a more subtle way if I was to wear it again, but I'm into this liner. It goes on like a crayon and is really well pigmented.

    Emma: Ok, so I only put a tiny bit of this in the outer corner of my eyes then used my normal liquid liner, because purple all around my eyes is not a look I can pull off. BUT I was pleasantly surprised by this. The liner was smooth and easy to apply, and I actually liked the little bit of purple!

    We then moved on to Know Cosmetics Lips products, which are apparently great to use before applying lipstick.


    Emma tried the No Thin Lips Lip Plumper, which is meant to give you the perfect pout. According to the packaging it will instantly plump you lips and give you fuller, kissable lips.

    I tried the No Bleeding Lips Lip Liner which is a lip liner that stops lipstick and lip gloss from bleeding.



    I'll be totally honest, I don't really see the point of this product. It's a colourless liner that you can use with any lipstick, but I really like coloured lip liners. Also I have never had a issue with lipstick bleeding, so again I don't see the point of this. Maybe it's just not for me.

    Emma wasn't exactly in love with her plumper either.


    it’s a lip plumper, like any other lip plumper. It stings when you put it on and makes your lips go a little red. It’s just a nice lipgloss really.

    After tying the Know Cosmetics, the right thing to do was try on lipsticks. So we tried the Gosh Liquid Matte Lipsticks.


    These matte lipsticks come in 8 different shades, Emma tried the Red Carpet shade and I tried the Berry Me.

    We are both really into this.


    Tolani: I love everything about this lipstick, apart from the colour. This shade is not for me. I am not really into pink lipsticks so I was never going to love this colour. But that aside this is a really good matte lipstick. It has soft, creamy texture that feels nice on the lips. Also I don't think the lipliner made a difference to how the lipstick stayed on.

    Emma: Love this. The colour is great, it applied easily (I’m terrible at applying lipstick) and doesn’t feel too dry. Give me one in every colour please.

    Finally I tried the B Stubborn Make Up Remover.


    This is a makeup remover that is meant to dissolve all traces of long-wearing and waterproof makeup and leave your skin feeling smooth.

    This gets full marks every time.


    I have been using this makeup remover for a little while now, and I am so in love with it. It literally gets all your makeup off, even stubborn matte lipsticks. It works very well, it's a decent price and a little goes a long way. I can't praise this product enough to be honest.

    That’s all for now, but comment below and tell us what products you would like us to review.
