If you are a makeup lover like myself, you may have seen the release of Benefit’s latest makeup product– the BADgal BANG mascara. I happened to be having a mooch around Debenhams at the time and treated myself (am I right ladies?) and popped it in my basket! This mascara retails at £21.50 which for me anyway, is quiteee a bit. Butt it was my lucky day and it was on offer at the time! I do find with Benefit that you get what you pay for and their products usually are worth the dollar dollar bills. So in my basket it went. After using it for the past two weeks now, I thought it was about time I shared with you my thoughts! If you are thinking about trying this mascara out, hopefully you will find this helpful to know whether or not you should splurge your pennies on it! View Post
Over the years, I have tried and tested goodness knows how many different concealers from the drugstore and have tried and tried to find one that was my perfect match for my v pale skin, but I just really found myself settling for the ones I found were the closest matches, those being the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in the shade 10 and you guessed it, Collection Lasting Perfection in the shade ‘Fair’ which oxidises on me (although I know they have recently released some lighter shades!) When Makeup Revolution, which has really upped their game recently which I am totally here for, released The Conceal & Define concealer not so long ago, the beauty community including myself was left shookith.
Not to mention the wide variety of 18 shades Makeup Revolution has released in this concealer which caters for all skin tones from fair to deep, in cool, neutral and warm undertones which I what I like to see (yes Tarte, I’m referring to you hun) it is only £4.00!! Which makes it nice and affordable which is also something I’m always down for. It really is “the concealer for everyone.“
Although I’m sure you will have seen a load of reviews of this concealer floating around, I thought I’d share my thoughts anyway if this would be any use to any of you who are thinking of trying this concealer if you haven’t yet already!
Nowadays, there are tones of eyebrow products out there which makeup brands have released over the recent years and methods of shaping, tinting your eyebrows etc especially the likes of Benefit since brows took over the makeup world and really became a thing when the thin brows were deffos OUT and the arched, filled in brow was in (or what ever you prefer) still to this present day. However, although many various brow products have been released over the years from pencils, to powders and pomades (most of which I have tried) there has never been a product for my brows that I have gotten more excited for than when Maybelline released the ‘Tattoo Brow’ fairly recently which is a peel off semi-permanent tint which claims to tint and last on your brows for 3 dayssss. Now we’re talkin’.
After numerous times being close to adding it to my basket, the other day was finally the day I decided I’d just do it and see if it actually worked. I have now been using this Tattoo Brow for the past week or so, so I could really put it to the test and make a decision on my overall thoughts. I know I’m late to the trend of trying this product out but I thought I’d share my thoughts anyway encase you were or are thinking about giving it a go!
I don’t know about you, but my skin gets SO damn dry in the Winter months around this time of year, especially in times like now when the good old British weather throws at us dull wet days after day. It also doesn’t help when you try out a new face wash for a few days and don’t realise until the third day when you wake up and release that let’s say it has stripped your skin from its oils and clearly didn’t agree with your skin- big mistake. After plastering on vitamin E moisturisers, you name it, my skin was still as dry as the Sahara desert.
Anywayy, when I received another package from Botanics containing some of their organic nourishing products, it couldn’t have come at a better time thank the lord! After literally the first use of these beauties, my skin was finally restored to its normal self! Botanics products are also paraben free and promote themselves on reducing their impact on the planet which is what I like to hear am I right? So they are great for anyone with particularly sensitive skin! I thought I would do a little post on the products which I’ve recently added to my skincare routine, encase any of you are struggling with looking after your skin in the Winter months like moi…
Oh makeup brushes. Those vital products that vary so drastically in price. You can easily splurge £75 on one high-quality professional brush set, but you can also find something similar for under a tenner. So what’s the tea? Are the more expensive versions worth the money, or do the much cheaper dupes do the same job? I thought the answer would be well duhh, surely not, but oh how I was wrong. I don’t know about you, but I love hopping on Amazon, where there is literally thousands of reviews on products, especially beauty products. So, when I saw that Amazon have their own (many) makeup brushes very similar to the likes of Zoeva and Sigma, which would also come in handy as cheap blog props, I couldn’t resist trying them for myself! I thought I would do my own lil’ review on these brushes and see what Amazon can produce when it comes to high-quality, low-cost makeup brush sets…
