[Intro music] Hi everyone, welcome back to my channel. Today I wanted to do a video that I have been promising to do for a little while, and it’s all in collaboration with the RNIB’s Love Your Eyes campaign.
Now if you watched my previous video on this channel, which will be linked below if you haven’t already, I was talking about the Love Your Eyes campaign which the RNIB have launched, and it’s a campaign all about taking eye selfies to raise awareness of loving your eyes, and how important it is to care for your eyes to avoid 50% of avoidable eye diseases.
So today I thought in support of that I would do a video on my favourite eye makeup products and why I love them so much, so you guys have got some inspiration to make up your eyes, and do an eye selfie for the RNIB’s Love Your Eyes campaign.
It’s hashtag RNIB’s #LoveYourEyes campaign by the way, and again all the information will be linked below. So I’m gonna get straight into it, because we’ve got quite a few products to talk about today.
So let’s get on with the video, and I hope you enjoy it. So the first product I have to show you today is the Ville De Fleur Golden Pumpkin Under Eye Treatment This is basically an eye cream, and I started using this about a year ago.
I love this stuff, it’s fantastic. It’s very good for your skin, it doesn’t leave it feeling sticky at all. It seeps into the skin very well. It’s got a lovely autumnal smell about it. But not only that, I love Ville De Fleur products because they’re made with natural ingredients, so there’s no preservatives or chemicals that will damage your eyes.
Because I’m quite funny about eye creams, because if they’ve got quite a lot of synthetic products in there, I don’t like to use them a lot, because I like to use things that are quite natural for under my eyes, because under your eyes are quite sensitive.
So if you have very sensitive skin around your eyes, then I would really recommend this cream as it’s fantastic. And it just smells so incredible. So that’s my first one. Another product for you today is a makeup remover actually, an eye makeup remove as it happens.
And this is the Superdrug’s own range Sensitive Skin Eye Makeup Remover. I know it’s a bit weird to have something like this in a video like this, but I think so many people forget that they actually need to take your eye makeup off! Don’t leave it on your skin! It’s meant to come off in the evening! So I love this because it doesn’t leave my eyes feeling really sore and itchy and raw after I’ve taken it off.
You don’t have to scrub at your eyes for ages to try and get the eyeliner or anything off. It doesn’t leave you with panda eyes. It’s really good. So I would recommend this if you have problems trying to take eye makeup off and you want something that’s quite gentle and non-harsh on your skin.
This is a great, fantastic eye makeup remover to use. So now we’re moving on to palettes. And the first one I’ve got to show you is my newest acquisition. This is the Superdrug’s Barry M… well, Barry M basically have created a range for Superdrug, and this is one of their exclusives for autumn, and it’s their new palette.
And inside it’s got 6 shades in there, and all in autumnal shades. So we’ve got a nice sort of rust colour, we’ve got an aubergine, we’ve got a teal colour, we’ve got a nice shimmery sort of colour, we’ve got an eye primer in there at the end.
And it’s really great. If you want some very nice dual colours for the autumn time I would highly recommend this, because it does give you some really beautiful shades. Very cheap as well. But do remember this is limited edition, so it’s not gonna last forever.
But it’s fantastic. The colours are so easy to work with, and they blend very well. So I would highly recommend this for the autumn season. I really hope some of you will get this for your makeup bag, because it gives you some great looks with this.
The next eye palette I have to show you today is this. This is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. It’s a palette and it looks like a chocolate bar. If that doesn’t make you happy then I’m sorry, you’re boring.
[Laughs] You’re not boring, but come on, that should make you smile if you haven’t been smiling today. And it’s got some really lovely shades, all very chocolatey inspired, from pinks, to cocoa browns, to some purpley shades.
It’s a great palette to use, Very versatile, you can use it in spring, summer, autumn, winter, and it’s very easy to use. The shades are so easy to work with, honestly they’re like a dream. I’ve used this quite a lot, and I’ve had no problems using this whatsoever, because they’re just so easy to blend.
And it’s got a great scent to it as well. It’s made with cocoa powder, so I think this is vegan friendly, but I could be wrong, but I will clarify it in the description as well with all the links information.
But this is definitely a great palette to use if you want something a little bit more fun. And I would recommend this as a Christmas gift. It’s probably one of the more pricey ones out of everything I’ve got to show you today.
This is probably the most expensive product I have. But it is well worth it, you get some really great shades in there, and they do last you quite a while. And not only that, the packaging itself. If you’re visually impaired like me, the packaging is very distinctive, because it’s this metal hard casing that looks like a chocolate bar.
So I just love this, and I just really wanna eat chocolate now. So the next product I have to show you today is again another palette, and if you’ve seen my videos for a while you’ll probably know what this is already.
This is the Classic Naked Palette, just the original edition one. I love this for many reasons, but the first one is, because again like I said I’m visually impaired, it’s very easy to distinct what it is and to define which one you’re holding because it’s got this velvety material on the outside with the word NAKED embossed on it.
So very great if you’re visually impaired. But when you open it you’ve got these lovely shades of colour, 12 different shades, from the very lightest nude look to a very dark party look. And it’s easy to work with, the colours blend in really well.
And you’ve just got a great all year round palette if I’m honest. You could use this in springtime all the way through to winter. And it’s just a very good staple piece to have. I have seen lots of different nude palettes and naked palettes, but none of them beat Urban Decay in my opinion.
I’ve used so many, but none of them quite match up to this one. It’s absolutely fantastic and the shades work really well. I’ve actually got it on today. I think I’ve got Sin, I have got Half-Baked, and I have got Smog.
So I’ve got 3 colours on, and they blend in really well. And I usually just put one of them on the crease or something like that, and then blend it in, and it’s just really nice and easy to use, and I never really leave the house without this.
So an absolute favourite of mine, and I would highly recommend this if you’re looking for a starter palette, especially if you’re very young and you’re a teenager, if you want a good Christmas present I would say put this on your list, because it’s really good as a first time palette to use.
So the final eye makeup palette I have today is actually one of the Marks & Spencer’s limited edition ones. I got this for Christmas last year from my mum and I love it. I love the packaging, I’ll start off with, because it’s very fairytale inspired, with little fawns and fairies and a forest scene on it at night time.
And then when you open it, basically the way it works is they’ve got 3 shades on each side, one for a more taupey colour look, one for a more smokey eye colour look, and it explains to you how you do the smokey eye look.
And the colours are really nice to use, very classic, very good staple pieces to have. And it’s just a really nice palette to work with. Definitely good if you are going to be going away for the weekend, and you want a couple of different looks to go for.
You know, if you want to go for something quite classic, like if you’re going on to a convention or something. And I just love it. I think it’s a great palette to use. The one downside of it is that it hasn’t got a mirror.
But never mind because, you know, you can just easily pick up a portable mirror from anywhere. So if you’re looking for something quite classic, they don’t have this exact same version this year, they’ve got a different version of it this year.
I think the packaging’s different, but I will try and find one that’s similar to this and I’ll put it in the description below if you’re interested. Now, moving on to eyeliner and other such things, the first one I have to show you today is the Urban Decay Smog Eyeliner.
Now these are the 24/7 glide on pencil eyeliners. I love these so much, and the reason is because whenever I use an eyeliner that’s a pencil, I always find that I’m literally tugging at my eyes, trying to get it to move across.
Or when I use a pen, I always find that I smudge it. Now it’s always been a catch-22, like do I go for a pen, do I go for a pencil? Because there’s always been cons to both of them, but I find this is a very halfway one.
It’s very good, it meets you halfway, because it’s got the benefit of feeling more like a pen in its texture, but it’s a pencil so it won’t smudge. And it’s really easy, it glides on over the skin really easily.
So it’s definitely a good one to use. And it’s a nice alternative to the other ones I’ve been using, because I’ve been using a lot of black, and I really wanted to get a copper shade, because I just find that I want something a little bit more autumnal and warm and a bit more easier and different.
Because I don’t always want to wear black, because that’s more of a party look I think. So this is a perfect one for me and my eye colour, and I really recommend it. If you want something quite easy to use in terms of eyeliners, if you’re visually impaired like me, I would really recommend going to Urban Decay, because their eyeliners are second to none.
So the next product I have to show you today, which is again another eyeliner, is the Barry M Waterproof Resistant Eyeliner, and it’s in the Gel Black colour. I love this because first of all its a brush, and you basically dip it into a little pot of the eye makekup itself.
It’s not the most easiest thing to use in the world, but if you practice enough you will get used to it. And it does give you some great looks. You can do a really nice cat-eye flick with this, and you can get lovely defined lines out of this.
It will stay in place, it won’t smudge very easily, and it’s just a very nice product to have. And I would recommend this if you just want something in your makeup bag that you can put on and not have to worry about it for the rest of the day.
The next product I have for you today is this. And it’s Superdrug’s own range, which is the B makeup range. The concealer is not an under the eye product necessarily, but you can use it under the eye like I do.
I love this because it gives me an even look underneath my eyes, it really brightens up and smooths out any imperfections I have or any dark circles. It’s great to use because I’ve got a bit of insomnia to be honest, I stay up so late, and this is the perfect thing, this is a lifesaver.
If I didn’t have this, I think it’d be a disaster, because, you know, I’d just look awful. So I genuinely love this, and I think if you’ve got anything like cloudiness under your eyes, or you’re just getting a little bit of the winter blues at the moment and you can’t sleep and you’ve got a bit of bags under your eyes or anything, this is definitely a really good one to use.
So I would highly recommend this. And they are quite cheap as well, so it’s an affordable thing to have in your makeup bag. So another product I have to show you today is a mascara, and this is again by Superdrug, the own range, which is the B makeup range.
I love this because it’s really easy to use. The brush is nice and easy, it’s got lovely thick bristles on it. It gives you a lovely natural makeup look, so it doesn’t clump very easily either. This is definitely a great product to use, and I personally find that it doesn’t irritate my eyes like other mascaras have.
The is one of the only ones that I’ve found from the lower end high street that doesn’t actually annoy my eyes, like aggravate them. So definitely a good one to use if you’re looking for something like that.
So that was my favourite eye makeup products today guys. I really hope you’ve enjoyed it and it’s given you some ideas for products you’d like to try and do for a Love Your Eyes selfie. Don’t forget to tag me @DavisonEm on Twitter with your eye selfies, under the hashtag #LoveYourEyes, and RNIB as well – @RNIB, all uppercase.
