Benefit There Real Mascara Update

When i first bought this mascara i liked it but i was still on the look out for some thing better and guess what it never came, after a rocky start to my relasionship with benefits there real mascara it gradualy became serious i was in love

 the thing that i was a little unsure about at first was how wet the formula was it made quite a mess on every application but i liked what it did to my lashes.

 the more i used it the more i fell in love and as the mascara dried out it became less messy and I felt like I had control over how much product was being applied to my lashes it had stoped them looking clumpy and every time i tried another mascara it just didn't do it for me this has to be my favourite mascara ever and sadly my beloved mascara has completely dried up :(  so now i have go any but a new one even though i have loads of others to use i just don't want them I'm having serious withdrawal symptoms from a mascara yes a little crazy i know but  the effect it has on my lashes is addictive and i need more.

Clear Skin Intensive Cream Cleanser

This cleanser is from Avon's clear skin range it is the clear emergency intensive cream cleanser with 2% salicylic acid.

I purchased this while it was on offer and I'm really glad I did, its not an everyday cleanser I use it maybe once a week and it really does help keep the blemishes at bay.

At first it looks like a clay mask but then you feel it and the texture is a runnier consistency. 

Now if you do not like cleansers that tingle or feel cold then this is definitely not for you, as soon as you apply the product it feels like you have dunked your head it a big pile of snow I try and leave it on for as long as possible which is about 60 seconds and with the menthol scent you have to keep your eyes closed otherwise they will water. Once its been washed off your face feels so  fresh it really deep cleans and removes any left over traces of make up to leave you with beautiful skin. 

I have also mixed it with face masks to give them an extra boost I love it and will definitely repurchase.
It is normaly £5  for a 75ml tube but at the moment it is on offer for £2.50  and can be purchased from your local rep or online HERE
Whats your favourite Avon product?

Rimmel Match Perfection Cream-Gel Foundation

I am always on the hunt for a new favourite foundation even if I love the one that I'm using i always want to find something better so as you can imagine I have built up quite a collection of them as its Christmas soon I don't really want to be spending money on more foundations that I'll use a couple of times so I shopped my stash and came across this Rimmel Match Perfection Cream-Gel foundation which if I'm honest I forgot I even had I have the shade 100 ivory

I made a deal with myself to use the foundation for a week and then decide wether I want to carry on using it or re shop my stash

This product claims to adapt to your skin tone and texture, the first thing I noticed about this product was the smell it has a similar fresh scent to Bourjois healthy mix and it applied realy nice and felt realy refreshing on my skin it is a medium coverage and its buildable as It covered all my blemishes super easy, the colour match is pretty good and it does adapt to your skin texture.
The only negative for me is that after a couple of hours it started looking patchy around my cheeks and jaw line also it oxidised on me so the patchiness was darker than my own skin tone and quite orange, I tried it with 3 different primers and without a primer it happened every day so for me this one will be going back into my stash and I'll dig something else out to try

Have you tried this foundation and how did you find it?

NOTD Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish

With the weather getting colder it's starting to feel more like autumn and I love the autumn/winter seasons that feeling of coming in from the cold putting the heating on full and snuggling under a blanket on the sofa to watch a film is my idea of heaven so I decided to dig out all my 'winter' nail polishes and this is one of my faves it's Rimmel 60 seconds in the shade movie star.

This polish claims to dry in 60 seconds and one coat is needed, now I can agree with the drying time but after one coat it looked a little patchy so I need 2, it is a lovely deep red with a gold and red shimmer/sparkle running through it.

What's your favourite autumn shade?

Simple eye look

Today I have done a very simple eye look I'm going to be a bridesmaid for my mum at the end of the year so I have just been playing around with some different looks and this one is my favourite so far

I used Bootycall from the naked 2 pallet on half my lid and foxy on my brow bone and from the MUA undressed pallet shades 3, 5 and 8 in my crease and shade 8 on my lower lash line

MUA gel liner in underground and Benefit there real mascara

I love how simple this look is but it looks really natural and dressy at the same time

Mascara Review : Week 3 : Collection 2000 Skyscraper Length andDefinition

I picked this mascara up in the pound shop and at first I thought it would be similar to Maybeline stiletto mascara but it's completely different the packaging may be the same but everything else is not.

The wand is plastic with short bristles on the bottom and sides and longer comb like bristles on the top

So hear are the pros and cons


The brush Is amazing the comb side separates your lashes and the shorter side gets really close to the lash line

Not messy

Really quick to get the desired effect


Not dark enough

Doesn't give brilliant length.

Now this mascara for me is best used in conjunction with a volumising mascara for the best results.

I have used this mascara with most mascaras I own and it is brilliant for combing through lashes that have gone clumpy as it separates the lashes and removes any extra product.

When used on its own it gives a very natural look to your lashes now for me I like my lashes to look a bit more dramatic but every now and then when I want to wear minimal make up or when I'm in a rush this is perfect.
Im really glad I picked this mascara up I have used it every day in my opinion the actual mascara formula isn't anything special its the wand that makes this such an amazing product
whats your favourite defining mascara??

Mascara Review : Week 2 : Maybeline The Falsies Volume Express

Hiya ladies well this is the second mascara review and this time it's Maybeline the falsies volume express.

This was just one of them impulse buys for me I just grabbed it and didn't realise it was waterproof until I got home I never usually buy waterproof mascara i have no idea why I keep clear of the stuff I just do

This mascara has a different brush to any other mascara I have used it Is curved and has flat short bristles on the top of the curve and longer bristles around the sides and on the tube it says use the flat side against your lashes and when you do this you can feel all the tiny bristles grab your lashes and comb through them which I LOVE.

Now hear are the pros and cons


I love the spoon brush
it gives good definition
Really easy to work with
Doesn't go clumpy


Doesn't seem to curl my lashes
Doesn't add any length
It's not black enough

When I use this mascara there seems to be something missing from my lashes and I just can not work out what it is.

This retails at £7.99 , the reviews I read after I bought this mascara really made me excited to use it but after the first use I was quite disappointed. When I use this mascara I team it up with another that gives length so I get the benefits from both products and the mascara I have found that works really well with this will be the next one I'm going to review so you will have to wait until next week to find out what it is :)
