Bourjois Volume Reveal Mascara – Before & After Video!

**scroll to the bottom of my post for the video!**

I was in Boots the other day and this mascara looked SO different I had to take a look (and it had the word ‘New’ next to it :). I’ve never really looked to Bourjois as a brand for good mascaras because I’ve always stuck to the ones that I know.

My firm usual favourites are the Maybelline Lash Sensational and the Too Faced Better Than Sex. We all know how it is though, that when your mascaras start to dry out you get that revelation in your mind ‘OMG…this means…yes…I can buy a new one!’

So I picked up the Bourjois Volume Reveal mascara in the colour Radiant Black to give it a whirl. This is a really different type of tube – it’s triangular which I don’t really see the point of other than it stands out from the rest.

6 Make Up Bits I’m Loving!

Hi Guys! 

HAPPY BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND YO!

I have a few things I wanted to show you before I go off and make some delicious Salted Nutella Cookies *insert heart eye emoji here*. 

There are some make up bits that have really been floating my beauty boat recently so I wanted to show you to give you some inspiration! I love reading posts like these by other bloggers so I thought you might want to have a little rummage around my collection to hear about some of the great products I’ve been using…

6 Things I'm Loving Right Now!

Liquid Bronze for Nails?! Whaaaaaa…

SO – Barry M have made me very happy, because their latest range of metal nail polishes are beautiful!

I am kinda feeling the days when I can wear moody dark purples and blues and blacks, but the Molten Metals Barry M polishes are still floating my boat for Summer! The shade I picked up was in Bronze Bae *shudder*, I detest the fact it is called that but you have to admit, this shade is gorgeous.

This polish is really pretty – it takes around two medium laden coats to get this nice and opaque but it really doesn’t take that long…AND it’s only £3.79, bargainous.

The Universally Loathed Concealer Palette *sniff*

Hi Guys!

It feels good to write a post on a Sunday, with a cup of tea – this feels like the right way to blog. I wanted to talk about this little Nyx Concealer Palette on Roshni Reviews today and it’s a real shame, because everyone HATES this.

Like, no one has told me they like this palette. It’s a real shame because usually Nyx products are great – so affordable, great quality and high performance. But this palette – I feel for it, because there is no love in the blogosphere for this poor, little palette…

New to Contouring? Take a look at this…

THUMBNAIL1

It’s been a long time coming but I had wanted to do a mini tutorial for contouring, but contouring for NORMAL people. Not stripey, muddy, instagram contour that looks like a Twix stuck to the side of your face (good choice of chocolate right, was either than or a Kit Kat)…

MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base Review!!

MAC Prep & Prime

I’m not usually one to use a primer – my skin doesn’t tend to eat make up up which is a good thing, but in one of my more recent MAC mini hauls I received a little sample of the MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base. My sister had mentioned that she’d used it before but I imagine just from a sample like mine was.

I haven’t really used primer for foundation or bases as I don’t REALLY need it but I had wondered whether it made any difference!

As it’s become hotter in the summer months in the UK, of all places where I lose foundation/makeup it tends to be the forehead and mouth area. So I thought it was time to try this Prep + Prime sample!

NARS Orgasm Blush – With Swatches!

If there’s one product that’s been on my wishlist for a very long time, it’s this one. The NARS Orgasm blusher is a cult classic and I had always wanted to try it.

I’d say this NARS blush isn’t really for those who are shy with make up – this looks so pretty on but it’s quite an intense flush of colour (as the name would suggest!). This would look great with a full on make up look and it is so pigmented a little goes a long way.

I picked my limited edition blush up at Feel Unique and it came in a beautiful NARS box with a pretty summery overlay – you know that this is special and no wonder so many beauty followers love it!

Maybelline Lash Sensational – Before and After!

Hi Guys,

A while ago I used to LOVE the Maybelline Lash Sensational and recently I bought it again.

However THIS time, I noticed a few changes in the formula and wanted to share it with you…here is a sneak peek below of the before and after!
