loreal hip paint eyeshadows and crayons

Hello gals so I've been looking for loreal hip eyeshadow paint tubes for a while now since really taking a interest in make-up over the last year been I've been watching YouTube videos and reading reviews.
so then I started looking at prices and were i could buy them from? the main place was good old e-bay with the cheapest being a UK seller for £3.99 for 2 +99p p&p so that's £4.98 for two, but was still unsure if i really wanted to buy 2 tubes so i carried on my search'# and found a website called
They sell them for £1.75 each

Above are 5 of the 6 colours available at time of writing this.
I got my ones last week and have been using them since then these are great paints and don't move once dryed they make a really good base or on there own. but I'm sure we've all know this :) &  for this price i think I'll be stocking up as loreal don't sell them over here.
Also this site sells the loreal hip eye crayon for 99p each I also have these and let me tell you these are 100'% water proof they are just great
just wanted to share with my gals on great buys that I've found
hope this was useful for ya xxx
note in NO WAY am I affiliated with this site I just wanted to share a great bargin with ya

elf NEW mineral eye brightner

I only found e.l.f 5 months ago and may i say I LOVE there products. my most recent purchase of new products was the MINERAL EYE BRIGHTENER.

elf's description of the eye brightener says it will "perk up those eyes & diminish the appearance of dark shadows" you can buy this from for £3.00

I've never used a mineral product before and was worried that i wouldn't be able to apply it correctly but i must say i found this brightener very easy to apply as long as you BUILD AND BLEND! it will not look chalky or flaky.
I did look at youtube videos before i purchased to get a general census and i must say i got a few mixed reviews, but i thought I'd give it a go anyway and I'm glad i did as in my opinion this is a very good product.
I've only used it under my eyes but e.l.f says you can use it anywhere you want to brighten and as a
eyeshadow base?

As you can see the eye brightener really makes a difference to the dark lines around my eyes (NOTE: i have no other make-up on) and it blends in very well with my own skin tone i applied it with a blending brush in outward strokes from my inner corner to my outer eye.

VERDICT: 8/10 because I don't know if this would suit darker skin tones but for me it's very very good and a repurchase item

(I payed for this item myself)
