The Gamechangers

I’ve already rambled on this week about my ‘ol friend A and our deep conversations about long-lasting lipstick (post here for reference). But the whole reason we were on our burger-filled lady date was because we’d been left by the wayside after vamping up our other bestie for a date night of her own. The three of us clubbed together, scrambling around, pulling out the creme de la creme of our makeup bags and making our mate looking pretty darn sexy if I say so myself. But there was 1 (well 2, but I’ll get onto that later) products that really stood out to these folk with normal makeup obsession levels – let’s call these ‘The Gamechangers’ – and if my friends haven’t purchased these by the end of the week then I’ll eat a banana (bananas = yuck)…

The first product I have spoken about many a time (full review here), but eye shadow was a hot topic of the evening, with both my friends lining up to be dusted with the warm neutral MAC Eye Shadow in All That Glitters. I’ve now found the perfect partner for it in the MAC 217 blending brush and the ladies were happy with their enhanced eyes. I gave an impromptu lesson and they both sat and duly took mental notes. The other product is one that I don’t own but recommended to my friend after she suffered a reaction to eyelash glue. I suggested the Latex-Free Duo Lash Adhesive and she’s reported back that it works a treat. Perhaps one for falsie loving ladies with sensitive peepers?

Now unfortunately there is no photographic evidence of what a babe my friend looked by the end of her makeshift makeover, but we stood and waved her off like proud parents. And when we all departed the name of the MAC eye shadow was excitably taken down in their iPhones – they were well and truly ‘game changed’.
