Surratt Inner Light Baton

*Surratt Inner light Baton are PR Samples

I remember the first time I noticed a white pencil being used in the waterline of the eye. It was Sharon Watts in Eastenders (apologies to anyone who didn’t grow up in the UK watching this!) and I always thought how big it made her eyes look. Almost like the whites of her eyes were double the height. I did also think she needed to blend it a little rather than being a stark white line but I guess it was just how her character needed to look.
 Using a white pencil in the waterline has evolved somewhat since 1989 Sharon Watts and we have slightly more natural pencils that colour correct and brighten the eye.
 Surratt Beauty has just launched three pencil and powder duos, which are specifically designed to be used in the waterline of the eye. They describe them as being similar to a whitening toothpaste, but for your eyes. Each pencil knocks back any redness along the waterline, neutralizes any darker pigment present there and serves to brighten the whites of your eyes.
 I’ve used this style of pencil for years for both daytime and evening looks. In the morning it’s a great product to make your eyes look brighter, less red and more awake and in the evening when creating a smoky eye it can make your eye colour pop.

Surratt has three shades to offer. One end is a creamy pencil that applies easily, blends out to soften the line but also doesn’t run. The opposite end holds a shimmering powder. The powder is applied via a small smudger style sponge and can be used along the lash line to add a shimmer or even under the brow arch to highlight.
Perle is a classic white pencil with a scintillating sparkle at the opposite end. Perle clarifies and flares the whites of the eyes.
Effersce is a flesh-toned peach that would suit a light to medium skin tone. The opposite end is a rose gold sparkle powder. The peach tone eliminates purplish tones.
Mousseux is a caramel tone, which is great for a deeper skin tone. The complimentary powder is a champagne sparkle.
If you find your eye makeup never looks polished, suffer with redness in the waterline (especially during hay fever season) or just want to brighten and whiten your eyes then these are a fab addition that you’ll use every day. I wouldn’t be without one.

You can get the Surratt Inner Light baton here for £40 each.

Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum
Boy does my skin need so recovery assistance at the moment. It’s so confused by the weather and the central heating is playing havoc with my moisture levels.
 For the last 2 months I have been testing out the Revitalixir Recovery Serum from Murad.

Who is it for?
 Great for those with dull skin texture, skin which has been exposed to environmental aggressors or for those who have been poorly and whose skin has suffered as a result.

What does it do?
 It contains oil-based spheres and a water based gel. By separating these ingredients, Murad has eliminated the use of binders within the product. This means the formula is more concentrated and the active ingredients can be delivered more effectively.

It also contains Cannabis (Hemp seed oil), which is a source of Omega 3,6 and 9. These fatty acids help to smooth the skin, calm, increase hydration levels and are particularly great for dry or flaky skin types.
 Hyaluronic acid (needs no introduction I’m sure), wild indigo to improve luminosity, Neuropeptides to address skin ageing and expression lines, caffeine to stimulate and de-puff and Niacinamide which boosts radiance and helps with cell turnover, boosts your skin immunity and helps balance skins natural 
oil flow.

 This serum has a lightweight gel texture which massages away with an undetectable texture. It has a pearlescent tint to it, which softly illuminates the skin without looking shimmery. It gives a warming radiance to the skin.
Immediate results from using this are increased luminosity. I didn’t particularly feel that my skin felt hydrated right after using but more refreshed and ready to accept the next stage of my skin care.
 Long-term my skin feels more supple and softened. Radiance in the form of brightness has increased and my skin generally feels calmer.

The pump action 40ml tube will last you ages as a little goes a seriously long way. This serum is £70 so by no means a cheap option but if you are after a radiance inducing, skin calming serum that suits all skins (especially oily or combination skins) then it’s worth a look.

This serum is available now here.
