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 🙂

Lots of love,

Make Up Geek Eyeshadows + Swatches

makeupgeek

For the first time in Roshni Reviews history (this is a big thing) I have tried the eyeshadows from the American beauty brand Make Up Geek!

The only thing I had tried before from Make Up Geek was one of the sparklers (a loose glitter) which took some getting used to but was pretty impressive when I worked out how to use it! You can read my review of that here…

Until recently Make Up Geek was hard to get hold of here in the UK, but then BeautyBay.com started to sell their products and everyone has gone mad for them.

I had heard SO much about the pan eyeshadows from Make Up Geek being REALLY pigmented, smooth and blendable so I just had to try them. They are quite reasonably priced I would say – much more inexpensive compared to MAC or Urban Decay but with those brands I’d say you are paying for the name in part.

My eyeshadows cost £4.95 for the matte and duo chrome shadows and then £7.95 for the foiled eyeshadow. (I almost forgot to put the . in there so it looked like £795. Damn that’s expensive).

The first shade I got was a Foiled Eyeshadow in the shade ‘In The Spotlight’ (pictured above yo) which is a beautiful peachy gold shimmer shade. This is SO BRIGHT – I haven’t yet tried these shadows on my lids yet but I have swatched them and been amazed at the pigmentation!

The second shade I got was a matte shade called ‘Bitten’. This is a gorgeous and understated red/brown crease shade. The texture of these is so buttery – I think because of this there is a little bit of fall out but I think I could deal with that.

This shade will be really useful as a pop of colour in the crease – I think it will come off more brown than anything but you can’t beat a good brown in your collection!! Especially a warm one…

Finally I bought a duo chrome shade called ‘Secret Garden’ which has green and blue/brown flecks running through it and it looks really beautiful as an all over lid colour.

I am impressed with these so far and will definitely post a tutorial on a look using them OR do a video on my channel swatching and using them!

Speaking of which, here are the swatches of these lovely shades…the palette I am storing them in is actually one I made for a measly £1.85!! I showed you in a post how I made it here, as Z palettes are so bloody expensive for what they are.

Have you tried any Make Up Geek eyeshadows? Are there any other shades I should try/lust over?!

Thanks for reading 🙂

What should you use to set your Brows?

Setting your brows sounds ridiculous. I mean, think about it. It’s not a panacotta.

BUT if you are on top of the biggest trends in the make up world, you know that brows (and with a z) are a big thing right now. Brows that are on ‘fleek’, brows that SLAY, there is so much slang flying around they will need to extend the Oxford Dictionary by half just to cater for them.

Anyway, if you are like me and regularly need to tame/thread/hedgetrim/pluck your brows then you will know how important it is to set them with something so that they don’t end up curling into your eyeballs and looking all manner of unruly.

For the last few months I was using the Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Brown which is essentially a tinted brown brow mascara. This was great for colour and the wand/brush was great but the hold was terrible. It didn’t really set them and often I would look in the mirror and my brow hairs had come out of place and looked a bit ruffled (ha).

So I thought it was time to try something new! I was in Boots not that long ago and saw both the Rimmel Brow This Way Clear Brow Gel (£3.99) and the L’oréal Brow Artist Brow Plumper (currently £5.99, can differ)

IMG_9651

I wanted to try a clear gel in case the coloured one was too light for me! (light brows on me would look a bit insane)

I have found myself reaching for the L’oréal version more than the clear brow gel recently as it is a good colour for me – it’s dark brown and comes with a teeny tiny wand for getting all the brow hairs. The coloured brow plumper is good for making your brows a bit more 3D and the only niggle I have is that the wand gets ALOT of product on it.

So if you’re a bit rough handed with it you might end up with a few dark brown splodges on your face like I did in my most recent make up tutorial on Youtube (smooth).

The clear brow gel is probably the weaker of the two in terms of hold – BUT if for example you have blonde brows then this is a good way of setting your brows without having to worry about colours being wrong for you etc.

So all in all I’d say the L’oréal Brow Plumper is my favourite so far – but the clear brow gel by Rimmel will be great for travelling as it’s so teeny tiny!

Have you used either of these?

How to Wave Your Hair – Quick and Easy!

Lol, I’ve just had a thought. I’ve done this ‘how’ to on waving your hair but if you could see my hair now it’s all sorts of pineapple and Rod Stewart (I’ve just got up).

ANYWAY, I’ve filmed a new video that is a quick and easy wavy hair look – using GHD straighteners. I would usually straighten my hair first before curling or styling but I’ve realised this process for waving doesn’t actually need that.

I love this as it’s a great simple alternative to having it straight for everyday and it doesn’t look too ‘done’.

I hope you enjoy it!

Have an amazing Sunday everyone xxxx

Antique Gold Glitter Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a new tutorial for you to watch with your beautiful eyes! It’s a look centred around the new eyeshadow trio I got from Born Pretty Store last week.

The trio contains the most gorgeous dark brown/gold glittery shade and I just knew I had to use it in a tutorial at some point. Turns out I couldn’t wait any longer!

To see my review of the palette, you can click here!

BLOGPOST-ANTIQUEGOLD

This look features a glittery smokey eye, winged liner and false eyelashes, but a nude slightly overlined lip. I kept the rest of the face very simple as the eyes and lashes are the main focus.

I hope you enjoy reading and watching my tutorials and posts, feel free to leave me a comment if you did!

ALSO – my Blog Lovin’ news update is that I have hit 350 followers!

My next aim is for 400 but seriously I’m amazed new bloggers are still following…is only me writing about what I like about make up! Lol :). Click the image below if you’ve stumbled upon my blog and fancy giving it a follow!

A Speedy Glittery Smokey Eye Make Up Tutorial!

Hi Everyone!

So I have an exciting new tutorial that I’ve filmed for you, where I have created a glittery, shimmery smokey eye look that is ideal for a glamorous evening or night out. It uses matte eyeshadows to build up intensity around the crease and then a shimmery eyeshadow stick (By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock – I’m sure you’ve heard someone talking about it before).

This look does use false eyelashes and I’d definitely recommend these ones that I have used in the video which are by the brand Red Cherry, these are GORGEOUS and they only cost around £3.50!! Bargain – AND you can reuse them! I would say you can reuse them a maximum of three times, which is better than the usual Eyelure strip lashes you get from Boots.
