Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

Mascara is one of the easiest things to collect, but that doesn’t mean everyone you magically end up with is a good one. In a mascara I look for something that with fully coat all my lashes without clumping them together and make them look as full as possible. After using Revitalash I am blessed with quite lush eyelashes at the moment, but something that would make them look longer wouldn’t go a miss.

Maybelline recently launched their Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara designed to give lashes a dark, sultry look, with all the volume and a formula designed to keep them beautifully curled and in place. Yes Please!maybelline-the-falsies-mascara

Maybelline New Face Products 2016

Maybelline New Face Products 2016

Maybelline has launched new face products left, right and center lately. With my weakness for foundations I knew I had to try the new Dream Velvet Foundation and then when they launch products together, you just have to get all of them together. Or you know just get excuses to buy more makeup XD So I purchased then Master Conceal, Dream Velvet Foundation and Master Fix Setting Spray.

Revlon Ultimate All In One Mascara

Revlon Ultimate All In One Mascara

Earlier this year Revlon launched a new collection of five mascaras and quickly impressed the beauty world. For some reason mascara is often something I neglect, I wear it every day without fail, but I will wear the same one all the time and not try many others. MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash has been my holy grail and I haven’t tried enough to knock it from it’s place as number one. With the rave reviews and slightly smaller price tag I thought I would give the Ultimate All In One Mascara a go.Revlon Ultimate All In One Mascara Read more

Revita Lash Advanced, Mascara and Primer

Revita Lash Advanced, Mascara and Primer

Eyelashes were never something I thought too hard about, I applied mascara to them and that was it. It was not till I was sent Revitalash that I began to spend a bit of time looking at and thinking about them.

For those of you who have not heard of Revitalash it is a product promoted to help your eyeslashes grow. The brand also has other products, including a mascara and mascara primer that I was also lucky enough to be sent.

In today’s post I am going to review all three.  Read more

October Round Up

October Round Up

Hello lovely people!

November already I have to start thinking about Christmas. Scary thought right?! I didn’t branch out too much in October with products to try, so this month’s round up is kinda small. Now that Expo planning and study is all done for the year I can dive back into my pile of products that need reviewing.

October Round Up

Left to right: Mane N Tail Creme Therapy, Oasis Beauty Rhino Repair, L.A. Girl Super Mega Mascara and .

Mane n Tail Herbal Gro Leave-In Creme Therapy
Website
– $6.76 NZD
– Available from iherb (international)

I use this for a few weeks after bleaching my hair to try and convince it to like me again. It is very thick, so you do not need much, but it does spread very evenly through your hair. I have very thin hair so if I wasn’t careful I could over do it and drown my hair in product. It is great at smooth frizzy hair and making it look a little more human if you have stripped it with too much bleach *guilty*. I also use it when my hair is super thirsty. As I mentioned my hair is very thin so I do not use this too much, if your hair was dryer or thicker you may be able to use it more often. I like it, but I do not think I will replace it once I am done, I will look for something else to try.

Where has this been all my life? I have crazy sensitive skin and I suffered through a year of eczema taking over my arm over and over again. I could have really done with this. I am currently fighting some on the back of my knee (??? why the knee I don’t know) and this helps so much! It relieves the horrible itchiness and by the end of the day it has reduced the little bit of swelling and rawness. Now if I could just remember to apply it more than just in the mornings I am pretty sure it would disappear completely *lazy beauty blogger* I also use it on my feet when they get dry, its fantastic for that! Almost over night repair ^_^ Its full of such goodness. I am not a big fan of how it smells, it is not nasty just not mine, but its benefits are so great that I over look it.

Other suggested uses (that I must give a go):

  • Aftershave or waxing balm
  • Takes the burn out of sunburn and heals itchy bites
  • Intensive hair conditioning treatment

I will be buying a tube if this regularly!

L.A. Girl Super Mega Mascara in Dark Brown
Website
– $13.99 NZD
– Available L.A. Girl USA (US), NZ L.A. Girl (NZ), Love My Makeup (NZ), Beauty Bliss (NZ), Beauty Joint (International), Unichem (NZ)

This was such a surprise. I had thrown on my makeup that morning and forgot about mascara so I ran down to the chemist by work and picked up a cheap mascara. It turned out to be great! I didn’t even check what colour it was still today, turns out its dark brown not black XD Best $13.99 mascara ever! It has a really even and light application so you can really layer it up. The brush is also just a bog standard brush, but it works well. I think it makes my lashes look great! I would definitely buy it again, especially for how cheap it is.

– $1.80 AUD

This is just a cheap knock off of other brush cleaners I have seen and I am kinda glad I didn’t pay for a fancy pants one. I don’t use it, it sits in my makeup drawer getting in the way. Don’t get me wrong, I tried hard, really hard, but it just doesn’t work for me. I prefer to use my hand to work in the cleaner into my brushes and it seems to work just fine for me. I would encourage you if you have been thinking about getting one, maybe trying a cheaper one first to see if it will work for you. I am pretty sure though that all the more pricey ones are just marked up versions of these though 😉 Maybe one day I will try again.

What did you try in October? Anything amazing? Anything you wondered what you were thinking?

MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara

MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara

Good Evening!

Despite the crap weather I managed to get myself some okish photos of my new mascara M.A.C.’s Extended Play Gigablack Lask Mascara. I’ve recently been replacing my makeup with M.A.C., I know some of you will groan about the price, but golly it is worth it. This mascara is one of the latest ones from M.A.C., I walked in the other day and said “I want a black, waterproof mascara that just colours my lashes nothing more” BOOM! They did it, the M.A.C. people at my local store never fail to deliver.

M.A.C. has this to say about the  Extended Play Gigablack Lask Mascara:

“A lightweight curling, lifting mascara in an intense carbon black pigment. Applies with a petite gripper brush embedded with micro-spheres to give each lash effortless, upward bending definition and extreme volume. Easy wash-off formula. Smudge-free. Lasts 16 hours.”MAC Gigabklack Case

Sleek Makeup Lash Out Mascara

Sleek Makeup Lash Out Mascara

Good Morning

I recently brought another bundle of things from Sleek Makeup, included in that package was Sleek’s Lash Out Mascara. For $8.99 USD each and after the positive reviews I had seen, I thought how could I go wrong? I have had a few good mascaras in the past year like L’Oreal Lash Architect and Benefit BadGal Lash, but I’ve also had some shockers.

Lets see how this one goes.
