Two Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ Mascara Review – New Video!

I was roaming round Debenhams as you do and when I saw the Too Faced counter it reminded me that I had never actually tried anything from their range. There are lots of products that have introduced me to a range – Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams, Clinique Moisture Surge Gel Cream, Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation – THE LIST GOES ON.

The Too Faced (I keep going to write Toof Faced but that’s something else) ‘Better Than Sex’ mascara was a great entry product for me to try. I have seen it a lot in Youtuber’s haul and review videos and it’s probably been following me around on Instagram too. In this post I have included MY own Youtube video review for this mascara, go give it a watch!

I was pleased to say when I bought it from Debenhams I had a £5 Beauty Card loyalty bonus thingymajiggle so that made me happy!

Don’t worry though, I tell you ALL about the mascara in my latest video! BUT even more importantly, if you want a clear before and after watch the video to see me apply it there and then :). Please give it a like if you enjoyed my ramblings!

Thanks Guys 🙂

Tanya Burr’s Peachy Glow Cheek Palette

I have been wanting to try this Tanya Burr Peachy Glow Cheek Palette for a long time – I was a very good girl because I saw this in Superdrug, DIDN’T buy it and then as I was still thinking about it the next time I went in I bought it as my reward for being good. Lol, I’m sure that’s how restraint works.

Out of Tanya’s make up and nails range the things I have loved the most have been the nail polishes – her formulas, colours and packaging have been on point and she has recently revamped them aswell and I’m a big fan of the new look range! I had never tried any of the palettes she has brought out and this was the one I had my eye on the most, so I thought I’d do a quick review on it!

tanya burr peachy glow

The thing I like the most about the palette first of all is how travel friendly it is – it’s light, it has a bronzer, highlight AND blush in one and it’s not too expensive so already it’s a worthwhile investment to add to your travel bag! This palette only costs £8 so it’s a bit of a bargain. 

I quite like the simple packaging, it’s cute without being saccharine. It has a magnetic close I think, but even if it doesn’t they have got it just right. It has a nice, large mirror in it and you get a decent sized pan for all three of the powders.

tanya burr palette

When it comes to the actual formula of the powders, one thing I can definitely rave about is the pigmentation. You most definitely do not have to swirl your brush around in the blush to see it on your face. In fact, when I first tried this I literally touched my brush to the pan and then applied it to my face and there was enough product on it! (crazy)

So yep, you’ve got it, this palette may actually last you until you are 90 years old and resting your freshly manicured hands on your zimmerframe **what an image**

One thing I’m not massively keen on is that there is a lot of fall out with this powder. The shades are all beautiful – you have a bronzer called ‘Beach Bronze’, a blush called ‘Apricot Flush’ and a gorgeous highlight called ‘Champagne Shimmer’ *drools*. But when you do apply this with a brush, you have to tap off the excess product and there is ALOT. If you can get past this, you will be overwhelmed by the pigmentation and how blendable the powders are.

The highlight is lovely but it’s very finely milled like the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow (at a fraction of the price) and I’d say the CT one has a more ‘candlelit’ vibe about it.

Have you tried anything from Tanya’s make up range?

Thanks for reading lovely readers,

What Bronzers are best to Contour with? Lemme tell you!

Hello everyone!

Merry Sunday to you all, I hope you are relaxing and showing your lovely Mum some appreciation (and then continuing to do so even when it’s not Mother’s Day)

I wanted to give you guys a run down on the bronzer’s I’ve tried and the ways in which I use them the most! My favourite ever bronzer so far is the NARS Laguna – it’s the bronzer that I have ceremoniously hit pan on.

bronzer101

NARS Laguna is so versatile – you can use it for contouring (which is what I use it for most of the time), bronzing up your whole face, slimming down your neck, or like a transition eyeshadow shade. Laguna will probably be too dark for light skin tones but it is just right for me :).

It costs around £28 which is a lot but it’s definitely worth the money for staying power and pigmentation. Look at what a mess it is lol but I won’t chuck it until it’s all disintegrated…

nars laguna

This bronzer is 90% matte, it does have very tiny shimmer particles in it but you don’t really notice – AND it is so pigmented you don’t need very much of it to create some flattering shadow on your face!

The Esteé Lauder Bronze Goddess bronzer is massive – the compact is almost as big as my face! This bronzer is much more of a orangey undertoned bronzer. It’s very warm compared to the NARS Laguna, but it is still a great everyday bronzer to keep in your stash.

The Estée Lauder bronzer is £33 but again, you get a massive mirror and the product is worth it. This bronzer has larger shimmer particles in it than the NARS Laguna so if you want completely matte stay away from this.

bronze goddess estee lauder bronzer

Back to a more cool toned bronzer, you could try the Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow which is in the most AMAZING luxurious packaging! The palette has a bronzer which is cool toned (I think I’ve got the Light version) and it has a finely milled champagne coloured highlight in there.

charlotte tilbury bronze and glow

It’s a powder that’s SO finely milled it kind of means it isn’t as glittery, it’s more shimmery than something like MAC Soft & Gentle (I think that’s actually a good thing though). It costs around £49, which is completely excessive so this is perfect for a gift, or a way to really spoil yourself. The sculpting powder is VERY good though, it doesn’t look like much in the pan but is perfect for contouring.

What are your favourite bronzers?!

Thanks for reading everyone!

The Re-Launch of Roshni Reviews – Come take a look!

blog re launch

Hello Everyone!

This is so exciting to write, but as you read this post you will be reading it on my brand spanking new template and I have to say, I may have been away for a few days but THIS is what I’ve been working on :D.

I had been thinking for a while that I wanted to revamp my blog – 2 years is a long time to have the same template and I wanted a new one that showed off my content in the best way.

I hope you like the title banner! I was after something watercolour and didn’t like anything I found online AND I didn’t want to just use a random file from google images. I painted the background myself on paper with watercolour, reliving my youth spent trying every creative avenue possible. I’m quite proud of it (it might seem something tiny to you but I’m pretty chuffed!) so I hope you like it too, I was after something personal where I could think ‘YES, it worked!’

unnamed

Have a little play around with it! You can get to my Youtube really easily to watch my newest videos, all of my social links are floating around at the top and my favourite Instagram widget will show you all the random stuff I put on there :).

So, I won’t witter on at you, but welcome to the new Roshni Reviews and I hope you will return to the more funky design again and again for your weekly beauty fix 🙂

Thank you so much to everybody that reads this little internet space!!

Lots of love,

Tangle Teaser vs Wet Brush…FIGHT!

I have been naturally blessed with thick, healthy hair. So much so that I am the kind of girl that suffers with snapped hair bands, broken claw grips, you name it. Most horrific is that painful feeling in your follicles when your hair has been up all day then you take it down and massage your head :(((.

The Tangle Teaser (mine is purple and glittery and awesome) has been a firm resident of my top drawer for about a year – my first choice when it comes to sorting out my tangly mane of hair. It is perfect for travel, it’s small and works great for keeping hair smooth and knot free! However, I had heard that there was something called a Wet Brush that is even better than a Tangle Teaser and I knew I’d have to try it out!

wet brush

Brushing wet hair is a dangerous game – unless you use a bloody good conditioner you will have tangly hair that needs to be sorted! I usually use my Tangle Teaser to work through the ends of my hair first so that I don’t pull and the hair doesn’t break. Then I can brush it right through without having to worry!

I felt like a bit of a traitor reaching for the Wet Brush over the Tangle Teaser, but hey needs must. So what I like about the Wet Brush is the bristles – at first when I heard someone say Wet Brush I thought it was a crazy hairbrush with like towel bits in it! The bristles on the Wet Brush are thin, bendy and get through hair pretty easy :). I wouldn’t brush right from the top of my head with a wet brush just because I’d worry about breakage, but it does just as good a job as the Tangle Teaser. I think the main benefit of the Wet Brush is that it doesn’t make you molt as much so it might be a bit less tough on your hair!

I’m trying to be more gentle with mine and taking skin/nail/hair supplements as around my temples my hair has started to feel a bit weaker and I don’t want to tug any out by accident!

I think the Wet Brush is definitely a worthwhile investment – the smooth finish of the brush handle is also very satisfying – it looks like the kind of brush you would take if you went swimming!

Which side are you on…Tangle Teaser or Wet Brush?!?!

Thanks for reading guys,

What to do when you’re in a Blogging Rut…

in a blogging rut 1

Quite honestly, my advice to you would be don’t blog. As in, don’t post – whatever you write will more than likely not be your best and you will not be happy with it (especially if you are as much of a fuss pot as me). Ironically, I am in one now (which you will think is weird as I am writing a post.) I wanted to share the way I deal with blogging ruts…

When you get stuck in a blogging rut, I really think the best thing is to embrace it and have a bit of a break! It doesn’t mean that you give up blogging, just make sure that you prepare posts when you feel like doing it and you’re passionate about something 🙂

Usually, you will have the time you need away from your keyboard and then all of a sudden you’ll see something or think of an amazing idea and eventually storm your way towards your laptop to write something.

When you have a blog, there can be a lot of pressure to put up consistent content, but remember that if your content itself isn’t consistently up to your own standards then your readers will more than likely notice.

So I suggest you relax and read up on my tips of what to do when you ARE in that blogging rut…..

(These things are useful for relaxing AND for blogging ruts)

  • Read a magazine –

Whatever you blog about, it’ll be something that you were interested in BEFORE you started blogging. Try and remind yourself of how much you loved it before you started blogging about it – read a fashion, beauty, craft or lifestyle magazine and just sit with a hot chocolate and unwind :). Relaxing means that you will more than likely actually spark something within yourself which will give you some inspo for future blog posts when you’re ready…or not, which is perfectly fine too :).

  • Have a bath –

If you are a beauty blogger like me then having a bath means that you will get to use some lovely products that will really pamper you. A Lush bath bomb, a nice hair mask or a pampering soak will help you unwind and lose any stresses that might have been blocking your blogging know how.

  • Read other people’s blogs and DON’T feel bad about your own –

If you’re like me, reading other people’s blogs would have inspired you to start your own. Get caught up on the posts from your favourite big bloggers and any bloggers you talk to you regularly! I’d take the opportunity to enjoy reading other people’s writing…this will be a good way to enjoy something as a reader rather than a writer 🙂

  • Watch shitloads of Netflix –

Having a break is important to give your brain a bit of a rest. My programme of choice is Pretty Little Liars because I am a season behind so it means I can binge watch it without having to wait for an episode to come out, haha. Getting yourself mentally distracted will at least make you forget about any pressure you are putting on yourself to blog! It’s important to relax if you want to stay creative :).

  • Catch up on your social media –

Catching up on your favourite Instagrammers, Tweeters and Facebookers will remind you what is trending in the blogging arena that you are interested in…sometimes I love going on Instagram to immerse myself in filters, amazing landscapes and awesome make up collections. When you see people linking pictures and posts don’t feel guilt – just remind yourself you are taking a break and that when you are ready you will get right on back to blogging and being bloody awesome!!!

Hope you enjoyed reading…what do you guys do when you are stuck in a blogging rut?

Thanks for reading,

MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Review

mac false lashes

Hello everybody!

I had this little MAC mini False Lashes Extreme Black mascara sitting in my Muji drawers for around a month before I realised I should really try it, as I’ve never had a MAC mascara before!

I’m a bit of a mascara addict…I tend to have a few open at the same time (sometimes they are better once they have dried up a bit!). My favourites at the moment are the Lash Sensational which I’ve mentioned more times than I’ve had Yazoo (which is a lot, chocolate). The products I tend to get the most from MAC are blushes, eyeshadows, eyeliners and lipsticks…I’d never even thought of trying a mascara from MAC simply because the drugstore do such good mascaras pennies in comparison.

The MAC False Lashes macara has a big fat brush – normally I would love this kind of mascara, but the more recent ones I have tried use more plastick-y brushes that are thinner.

mac false lashes extreme black 1

The formula is quite thin – I’m not sure if this is because it was a mini rather than a full size but I found that there wasn’t much in there! The fat brush probably took us most of the space in there lol. When I actually used the mascara, it was best for lengthening and separating rather than any volume. If they are aiming for an actual false lash effect, they are getting it bang on for length but I find with false lashes you get volume that you really can’t get with a basic mascara.

false lashes extreme black

This formula seemed quite dry – as you know there wasn’t much actual mascara in the mini that I had. I know that I wouldn’t bother getting a full size – when you can get two better drugstore mascaras for the price of one MAC mascara I don’t think it’s worth it!

What do you guys think, have you tried the MAC False Lashes Extreme Black mascara?

Thanks for reading 🙂

Valentines Gift Guide – What to get for Him!

Hello you lovely people,

So it is that time of year – it’s Valentines day, lurking around the corner like an amorous stalker.

THOUSANDS of loved up ladies around the world will be experiencing that terror that is the ‘present buying process’ for the other half. I am here to give you a fool proof guide to help you pick that perfect present for the person in your life that thinks Mascara is a far east country…

6b4a1be96b9e79501e287373a9f2aa1c7486ea4d1074c9cea99875e47e8c3f33

CLOTHING – 

All Saints is a great place to go for staple basics that will stick around in his wardrobe for potentially, years. Time-proof pieces like a dark, long sleeved checked shirt are perfect because the quality is so good and the colours are flattering!

all saints

This cute little beanie hat is perfect if your partner works outside or generally gets a cold head – and it’s only £2 from Asos! You could even add some mobile phone touch screen gloves to complete the set…

You can’t beat a big comfy hoody and Vans do some great ones that are made from the best materials – they are so soft! These are perfect for British weather and this means you can buy a slightly bigger size and get away with not getting the size exact lol

TOILETRIES AND ACCESSORIES – 

If you get your other half anything Tom Ford, even if he doesn’t know what it is he will thank you in the end. You could opt for the Tom Ford Black Orchid fragrance which is earthy, sexy and screams ‘I AM MAN SEE I SMELL LIKE MAN’.

This one is a bit crafty, if you’re in the beauty blogging world you will know why I’ve put this one in there. The Nivea Post Shave Balm has been one of those cult products for WOMEN believe it or not – which means if you get it for your boyfriend you can also steal this. You can actually use this as a PRIMER before make up! So basically I am not only helping you buy for your boyfriend but I am also improving the outcome of your make up…:)

Getting your boyfriend/husband/partner a tangle teaser might seem like an odd present, but if you use your own tangle teaser and appreciate it then trust me, a man will too. In fact, it will be like a little head massage. What’s even better is that you can get a non gender specific black one for anyone who is picky!

tangle teaser

Some comfortable nightwear will be appreciated by those that want to spend a full week playing Xbox or PS4, OR for those that generally like to be a bum. If your boyfriend is unemployed, this is perfect! You can get Star Wars ones from Burton and they are made from 100% cotton. Lol I’m kidding about unemployment, seriously these just look really comfy.

So that’s my guide to some simple winning gifts for your other half…I’ll be back in the blogosphere later this week with another Valentines post so keep your eyes peeled!
