Kryolan cake eye liner and Estee Lauder Double Wear Light

This week I have been opting for a really thick black winged liner thanks to my love for the Kryolan Cake liner in Black and my new Mac 209 eyeliner brush. I have used various eyeliner brushes and didn't think there would be a massive difference in them but this Mac one really is outstanding, I cant quite put my finger on it but it helps create a really smooth line with gel and cream liners and especially this cake liner.

 I have been playing around with my Kryolan since my trip to Charles Fox in London and I am in love with it, I am not sure if it is because I enjoy the feeling of really painting on my liner and it makes me feel like a pro or if it is because it is just a different application to the liquid eyeline I have been applying for years, but I totally recommend picking one up and giving it a try. It is a round jar with a solid cake of liner, in either black grey brown or a navy blue, you apply it moist- I dip my brush in a little water and then wipe it across the cake a few times until covered and then it is a quick slick on the eye and you are done. The staying power is incredible considering it costs a fiver and I think this little pot will last me absolutely years! I am hoping to pick up the other colours on my next trip to London!

I am still on the hunt for a flawless foundation, I don't like to wear anything really heavy but I still want a nice finish that evens me up and still gives a bit of life to my face. I have heard so much about Estee Lauder Double Wear but have always thought it would be a bit too heavy for me for day to day. Then I stumbled across some fab reviews for Double Wear Light and it really caught my eye. So after a cheeky little microdermabrasion ( review to come) last weekend and left with a completely bare early morning face in a busy department store I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get colour matched, she slicked it on and I was impressed but being sensible ( it almost killed me!) I left with a little sample so I can try it out and see if it breaks me out. So far I am really tempted, It gives me a superb finish when mixed with a little tinted moisturiser, I just need to wait and hope I get some Christmas pennies now, I  think this could just be the foundation for me... Maybe!

Will put it on at the weekend and try and snap some better pics than these but here is the Kryolan and the Double wear in action. As well as the very snowy scene from my bedroom window.
