BETTER THAN SEX MASCARA!

The name of this mascara is either why you want to try it, or like me you’ve watched so many youtube videos and it keeps popping up so I had to give it a go too. The packaging is a pearly pink with embossed writing. This Mascara is £19.

The applicator on this mascara is very full, it doesn’t have the individual bristles to catch each eyelash. The brush also holds a lot of product which I think can make your lashes look clumpy if your not careful when applying, I think this is because when you take the img_7227applicator out there isn’t a pop noise like some mascaras I have used which usually squeezes off some product. Too Faced say  that after three coats ‘you will believe in magic’. Three coats before my lashes look the best they can when using this mascara? I have used mascaras which have impressed me on the first application, I do agree you need more coats on your lashes to make them look like they stand out.

I do like the look I get when using this mascara I think your eyelashes look fuller and slightly longer however I dont think it makes your eyes stand out as much as my previous favourite Benefit Roller Lash.

Whats your best recommendations for me?

Charles Worthington Shampoo&Conditioner

I went into Boots the other day and I was looking for a new silver shampoo and conditioner. I have been using one which I liked but fancied a changed, I saw that the Charles Worthington was on offer 2 for £10 so I picked them up.

The shampoo is brilliant is is a deep purple colour and a little bit goes a long way. I left the shampoo on for a little bit not too long as didn’t want my hair to go purple and washed it off. It has a lovely scent and I really do think you can tell your hair has had the silver shampoo on it. The conditioner is not as purple more lilac in colour and leaves your hair feeling silky smooth and I also think it helped to brighten the blonde.

Tartelette in bloom eyeshadow palette

How lovely is this eye shadow palette?  Firstly I really love the packaging I think the hot pink stands out and the gold writing really compliments the colours together. The palette is very sturdy and has a really good sized mirror inside which is great for when you’re travelling.

The eye shadow colours are natural from a white to highlight your brow bone to a dark brown to create the perfect smokey eye. The shadows are mainly matte however there are a few shimmery shades nothing to glittery which I think is nice for someone who wants to more of a subtle look. Something I like about this palette is that you can use all of the colours where as some brands you wouldn’t use all them. I really enjoy creating different looks with all the different colours and look forward to sharing some with you one day.

Make Up Forever HD Foundation

Hi,

Isn’t everyone talking about this foundation? I had to jump on the bandwagon and buy myself a bottle. I went into Sephora and asked the lady to match this to my skin tone, and I was really excited to try it out. I really like the bottle I think its simple and it has a pump which of course is always a bonus!

img_7213Make Up Forever claim that this foundation is –

  • Second skin feel
  • Medium covergage
  • Natural look
  • Flawless
  • Moisturising
  • Blends seamlessly
  • Conceals imperfections

I do agree with these pin points you cant feel the foundation on your skin, its not heavy or thick. I would say that it is a natural look as you cant tell you have foundation on especially with one layer. I think the look is flawless it does cover your imperfections personally I build mine to a more full coverage as with one layer I dont think it covers all my redness and scarring however with just one layer it is a lovely natural coverage. It has a slightly dewy finish but it isnt too much I always add a little bit of powder to my T zone just to stop any annoying oil peaking through. I use a beauty blender and find it does blend very well and it does help to conceal your imperfections better when using a beauty blender rather than a brush.

I personally like a full coverage foundation as I have a lot of redness and scarring from acne over the years, so the more coverage the better for me haha! This foundation is very easy to build and doesn’t give you the cakey look and it stays all on all day. I find it very light on the skin even when I build it to a heavier coverage and I find it extremely comfortable to wear. I like the overall look and I would recommend this to any skin type, however would recommend the use of a oil control setting spray for those with oily skin.

I also find my concealer, contour and hightlight all blends very well on top of this foundation and it gives you a flawless finish, I would definitely buy this product again, and would put it in my top 5 favourite foundations.

Too Faced Hangover Primer

Hi everyone!

When I was in New York I went to Sephora and picked up some make up and beauty products. I wanted to try out a new primer, I had heard a lot about the  Too Faced Hangover Primer so I picked one up and I am so glad I did, it is amazing! I love the packaging as I think its girly and cute, I LOVE the fact it has a pump it makes it so much easier it use and that the tube is soft so you dont have to worry about squeezing it into your make up bag. The primer is £27 which I think is reasonable as you only have to use a small amount at a time.

So what does Too Faced claim this primer will do to your skin?

  • hydrateimg_7214-copy-2
  • smooth
  • brighten

I agree to each of these following points, It has coconut water in the product which is what makes your skin feel hydrated. Before you apply your foundation your skin looks brighter and refreshed.

I also like how it is extremely light weight and doesnt feel tacky on your skin as comes out more as a moisturiser than a paste which is easier to rub into your skin.

When I wear this primer my make up stays on my skin all day and I have never had that with any other product. I never miss this step anymore, and I will definitely be adding this to my holy grain make up collection.

Whats your favourite primer?

The Body Shop 

Have you used The Body Shop Pina Colada collection? Oh my god it’s smells absolutely gorgeous!! I’m definitely a fan, my grandma treated me to some more of the Sorbet. The sorbet is like a moisturiser however it has a thicker consistency and is more like a gel than a cream which I prefer, however if you prefer a cream that soaks into the skin quickly this might not be for you as it can last on the skin a little bit longer, but personally I don’t mind that. 

Also I have heard that this is great for when you are abroad as it helps to keep the mosquitos away and you won’t get bitten so i’ll definitely be trying that out next time I go away, as usually the scents from repellents aren’t that great however smelling like a cocktail is so much better! 

I have used the scrub and the shower gel too and I just love the whole collection and hope they continue to sell it! My grandma also brought some lip balms sticks and gave me two to try out as I get sore and cracked lips a lot so I hope that works! 

What’s your favourite body shop collection?
