Being a November Spendy Wendy

Is it just me, or does it seem like everybody and their kitty’s cousin have their birthday in the latter half of November/mid-December? Are we all a by-product of a steamy night around the dreaded V-Day?  I’m born on the final day of November, which means my birthday celebrations usually spill well into the first week of December as well as the ‘pre-birthday’ stuff too.  It means I can stuff myself silly with Crazy Pedro’s nacho pizza on December 11 and still use the “it has just been my birthday month” excuse, as well as guzzle prosecco at Bill’s on November 23rd and still use the excuse “it is my birthday month” Basically it is my birthday month up until I say it is not – you got that?

That all being said, it is official: I am now a fully-fledged adult.  21 years of age and all I have done for the past couple weeks is eat my weight in birthday cake (baked by the most handsome man in the world… No, not Cillian Murphy), sip on pints of prosecco, consumed some great live music and danced my lil’ socks off in Gay clubs with my nearest and dearest.  Obviously, this Geordie bee couldn’t have her 21st without entering KIKI on Canal Street, MCR and getting MORTAL could she?  Let me just say I attempted the worm on the light-up dancefloor and it did not exactly go to plan.

So anyways.  Because it has been my birthday month, I’ve been being a lil’ bit spendy.  By a lil’ bit spendy I mean I’ve just thrown my whole budget out of the window and thought “fuck it, my twenty-one-year-old self-deserves this”.  God, you’d think I’d never bought myself a lipstick before the way I am flaunting it about.  So, here are the few things I’ve bought over the course of November… So far.

Tommy Hilfiger Perfume

In my short space of time on this blue planet, I’ve come across two failsafe perfumes which I religiously re-purchase.  These include Burberry’s iconic Brit and Tommy Hilfiger’s Tommy Girl.  The latter was the first perfume I was ever given and holds the best memories for myself.  I reckon I must’ve only been about thirteen, I had just moved out of the big city and into a rural town, and my dad wanted to cheer me up.  I probably would have been happy with a bar of choccy, but I am so grateful that I gained Tommy Girl instead.  So is my waistline.

Tommy Girl simply smells absolutely divine!  The eau de cologne emits tones of tangy citrus juxtaposed with soft herbal notes and apparently allows the wearer to live the American dream. Get in my non-existent pink soft top Ken, we’re going to party!  I should maybe mention that I can’t drive?

Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger from Boots.com (£19.99)

 

Motel Rocks Sample Sale

If you did not know, Motel Rocks happened to slide into my emails a couple moons ago, insisting that everything on their website was £10.  I’d put myself on a spending ban until the end of November but look how that has turned out – I’ve bought so much I’m writing some words on how ashamed/impressed I am with myself.

Do you remember when Lizzie McGuire went to Rome and fell in love and ended up singing on stage?  What was it that she sang again… “Hey now, hey now – this is what dreams are made of!” Well, that is exactly what the Motel Rocks Sample Sale was fashioned from – dreams.

Almost everything online was listed at only £10 and who can really refuse that?  I temporarily banned the spending ban and purchased myself a couple of things I really did not need but really lusted after.

The first thing I picked up was this playful, carnival halterneck crop-top.  I always find that because of my large bust, halterneck’s both extenuate and flatter the top half of my body better than perhaps spaghetti straps or thickly ribbed vests.  I am also not the skinniest girl in the world (hello massive hips, how you doin’?) so vertical stripes are a big yes, yes, yes from me.  I got the crop-top in a size small and I must say my boobs look simply fab.  I took it for a spin at the Feel My Bicep night at Warehouse Project a couple weeks ago and I am head-over-heels in love.  Not bad for £10.

Also in the Sample Sale, I nabbed this iridescent peach plunge body from Motel Rocks.  Now, the colour of this is amazing, the quality faultless however it just does not sit right with me.  The bodysuit itself is a bit on the big side (I purchased my usual size of medium) and the side-boob is just a bit too much for my liking considering I cannot remember the last time I went out-out.  If full-frontal boasting of your assets and a bit of back action is your thing then baby, this is the body for you!

 

Makeup

My relationship with makeup is an odd one.   I always jealously eye up those gals with the perfect brow or shocking pink eyeshadow but I just cannot pull it off myself.  I believe I look better with just a swipe of mascara or a dab of bronzer – my permanently red-cheeks definitely do not need any blusher and I rarely use foundation.  Because of this, makeup is never really a top priority for myself.

But shock horror, stop the press, I’ve actually bought makeup for once.  No, I didn’t spend hours in Debenhams scouring the beauty counters for the perfect eyeliner to do those cute cat eye flicks – I just did a quick ten minute Boots order and thought, meh.  That’ll do pig, that’ll do.

First up is my ride-or-die favourite beauty product in the whole god damn world – the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer.  Oil-free and lightweight, I swear by this product for when foundation does occasionally grace my face.   It is on the pricey side, but it lasts me so God damn long, I can’t even bat an eyelid.

As well from Smashbox, I dipped into my wages and pulled out a wad full of cash which transformed itself into the Limitless Liquid Liner Pen in jet black, as well as a matte lipstick from the ‘Be Legendary’ range – in the colour Safe Word.  The liner itself is a lot thicker than I am used to –  the Chanel Ligne Graphique De Chanel is my go-to liner, so no wonder – however I love how easy it glides on the lid.  I am still no pro, and still a million miles away from successfully completing a perfect wing but I am getting there, and the Smashbox pen is a confidence-boosting product.

The lipstick from the matte range is totally the perfect pink nude.  One of the classic Smashbox colours, the pigment in this cruelty-free lipstick is phenomenal.  It only takes a swipe of lippy and we are set for the whole day.  Unlike other matte lipsticks, this one doesn’t dry lips out.  Since using the lipstick, I am definitely looking into purchasing some more products from the Be Legendary range.

So those are some of the treats I have bought myself for my Birthday month.   Like the title of this blog admits – I have been a little bit more of a Spendy Wendy than I perhaps should have been.  However it is okay to treat yourself once in awhile, right?  Wish me luck, my rent is due soon.   Beans on toast when you next come round to mine, okay?

My Winter Skin

How did that song at primary school go? “You need skin, take good care of it, don’t harm a hair of it?” I have a constant love affair going on with my skin – sometimes I treat it like the most important person in my life (so that’s why I made myself five banana pancakes smothered with peanut butter last night in front of Blue Planet II…) and other times I will go to bed three days straight without wiping the mascara from my eyes.  Well, I didn’t say it was a healthy love affair, did I?

Since the age of fourteen, my skin had always been ripe with pimples.  I put it down on two things:

1) Not knowing that rubbing my face red-raw with Dove soap and a rough flannel twice a week was going to do more damage than good.

2) Having my first job as a kitchen porter in a super greasy kitchen, scrubbing grease off walls, peeling grease from the inside of a deep fat fryer, other things to do with grease etc.  Grease + face scrubbing = disaster.  Now that is the kind of equation I can get my head around, considering it has plagued my face most of my adult life.

Add these ingredients to a bubbling pot of frosty weather beating my nose into the colour of Rudolph’s as well as the urge to have twenty baths in a fortnight and boy, do we have a piping-hot recipe for a spot outbreak like no other.  ‘BEWARE OF THE WINTER SKIN’ I will have pinned to my forehead.

However, rejoice, this winter I think things are going to look and feel very different.  I believe to have found the elixirs of eternal skincare this Christmas period.

Praise the heavens above that my face has been blessed by the skincare angels, who have sprinkled the cure to spots into my very palms.  It has taken a fair few years of using everything under the sun and emptying my bank account splurging on the unnecessary, but finally, finally, I can say I will be confident in my winter skin this season.  So without further ado –

Moisturiser
Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser

Honestly, who knew that my go-to moisturiser that would hydrate my skin to the greatest lengths would be something from the Simple range?  I have tried the classic Kiels, the Garnier Moisture Bomb and the Clinique Dramatically Different to name a few, but nothing comes close to the luxurious feeling of the Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser.

I definitely picked this little baby up on a whim during a frantic ASDA shop, and Jesus I am glad! It turns out Simple moisturisers are not just for picking up in the last-minute bargain-bin before a jet set around the globe.

The formula itself is extremely rich and creamy – meaning it is perfect for lathering on thickly after a steamy bath – yet does not clog up pores.  Pair this moisturiser with the Smashbox Photo Finish primer for faultlessly smooth and supple skin and dare to bare – let your dewy skin be the envy of all your pals.  Heavy-duty and smelling divine, the Simple rich moisturiser is going straight back in my basket.

Toner
Garnier Refreshing botanical toner with Aloe Extract
Lush Breath of fresh air Toner Water

More the merrier when a toner is concerned this winter, but only in the mornings… Do not question my logic because I actually have no idea what I am doing, I am just rolling with the punches.  BAM: skin specialist.  BAM: I am a liar.  BAM: I am just going to carry on.

My two go-to toners which I have stocked up in bucket loads are the Breath Of Fresh Air Toner Water from Lush and the Aloe Vera toner from the Garnier  Refreshing Botanical toner range.   The former is extremely new to my routine – just over a couple of months old now – while the Garnier has been a staple for 6 months +.  I’m still using both on/off, however; I am finding that the toner being a spray rather than a smother-on-a-cotton-pad is both much more refreshing and more complimentary to my skin.  The skin around my nose can breathe a sigh of relief, as the blackheads are being banished one dinky salty glaze at a time.

The Lush toner contains fresh sea water alongside spring water and Fair Trade Aloe Vera gel (making it both zingy and calming once sprayed) while the Garnier consists purified water as well as aloe leaf and corn molasses among more.  Both equally treat my face as good as gold, however, I am slowly but surely turning my full attention and moon face to the Lush toner.  Although the turquoise packaging shines in comparison to the contrasting, ordinary Lush bottle, I still cannot help the smile on my face as I spritz myself.  Spritzzzzzz.

Both of these toners smell gorgeous, however, the Lush toner has strong hints of Lavender and sweet salt while the Garnier has a pure aloe aroma.  Toner is used in reducing pore size as well as cleanse the skin, so having a pretty damn fine scent attached is definitely a plus.

Tip: put your toner in the fridge for stirring morning rejuvenation.

Cleanser
Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash
Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser

All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to get their mitts on Amie (la, la, la).

I am a big advocate and adorer of anything Amie Skincare put out, I wrote a bumper blog post about what you should be splashing on your face here.  In my winter skincare routine, I am taking forward two of the Amie skincare pieces, including the Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash.

More peaceful on skin than exfoliating products but doing the exact same job in a largely calming matter, the purifying facial wash is 100% soap free and simply needs a splash of water and a pea-sized amount of product to do its magic.  The pink wonder also works miracles on makeup removing, however, avoid taking off mascara/eyeliner unless a panda is your kinda’ jam.

As well as my cleansing ride-or-die, my skin has fallen head-over-heels in adoration for the Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser.

 

The aroma of the Ultrabland reminds me of my kitchen after I have the gals around for one too many beers, or the honey in my porridge from three days ago still being stuck to the side.  Now it sounds weird but honestly, this product is becoming my ultra favourite thing to put on my skin.  Essentially a moisturising bomb, the thick cleanser scoops out dirt from places I did not even know dirt could stick and wipes makeup off with the flick of a wrist.  YOU NEED THIS POT OF GOLD IN YOUR LIFE OKAY, JUST BELIEVE ME.

Face Mask
Lush Mask Of Magnaminty
Amie Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask

Bad day?  Stick a face mask on.  Didn’t make it to the gym?  Stick a face mask on.  Ate a pizza, ice cream, milkshake and considering whether you’re still ‘treating yourself’ by having a packet of vegan chicken nuggets?  Stick a face mask on, make yourself feel better… And then eat the nuggets.

I’m not gonna’ bore you about the details of the Amie Deep Cleansing Mask cos’ you can read all of those details here.  But let us have a chat about Magnanimity.  Sit down young one, I’m about to tell you a story.

This thing, alongside the Ultrabland, is perhaps the best thing I have ever bought myself, apart from Morrissey the Monstera of course.  An intense peppermint smell which matches its lush green colour, The Mask of Magnanimity by Lush is an acne-prone face, shoulder and back’s best friend.  Scoop your fingers in, lather it on, leave it for twenty minutes, do an interpretative dance routine and heeeeeeeey presto – spots are banished from yo’ face.

Unlike most Lush facemasks, this one is not fresh which means you don’t need to pop it in the fridge or use it for a certain period of time.  Plop and go whenever it tickles your pickle, it takes time to look this fancy.

So there you have it!  My winter skincare essentials.  There’s nothing shmancy in this guide, nor anything which you can’t swap that Wednesday evening red wine in Northern Quarter for – which means you can look banging on a budget.  Don’t say I never gave you anything!

Get your sparkle back with Amie Skincare range

Don’t you just HATE when you’re going to an important event and a little not-so-friendly-friend sprouts up, hitting you square in the face?  Seriously, I don’t think there is much worse than knowing that even four layers of concealer (mine is Urban Decay’s Naked Skin) won’t make that bad boy go away!  However, there’s an all-natural, vegan skin care range that will prevent this from ever* happening again.  Readers, meet the queen of skincare, Amie.

*You still might get spots but definitely not as frequently.

skincare-1 skincare-4

Amie is tagged with the slogan ‘naturally kind’ due to containing “Non-irritating ingredients” which are essential to keep your skin glowing bright and beautifully.  I myself have tried everything under the sun to cleanse my face (Freederm, Simple, Garnier etc etc. The list is seriously endless) and nothing comes close to how brilliantly clean and healthy my skin looks AND feels when I regularly use Amie.

Before hearing which products are my all-time favourite staples in my skincare routine, here is a simple rundown of the Amie Ingredients Policy:

  • No Mineral-oils
  • No parabens (which can occasionally be found in Keils products)
  • No petrochemicals
  • No GMO’s
  • No Sodium Laureth
  • No Sodim Lauryl Sulphate
  • No animal ingredients
  • NO ANIMAL TESTING

I’ve been using the Amie skincare range for roughly 2/3 years now, and I seriously would never look into investing into anything else.  Not only is it suitable for vegans, vegetarians and those who are concerned with products of the cruelty-free variety, but all of the packaging is super cute – soft colours rather than garish-in-your-face florescent.

 

My favourite Amie Products

 

Morning Clear – Purifying Facial Wash

“A moisturizing facial wash for clear, soft skin”

This product is perfect for beginning your morning skincare routine.  Due to the texture of the product being super smooth, silky and light, the Morning Clear Facial Wash is a calming wakeup for your skin.  15% of the product contains a moisturising formula, which works wonders on dark circles and dry skin which is an absolute BONUS!  Price: £4.95

skincare-2

Radiant Dawn – Exfoliating Daily Wash

“Deep cleanses pores & exfoliates for clear & radiant skin”

While I use the Morning Clear facial wash specifically to gently kickstart my skin into life again, the zingy Radiant Dawn exfoliating wash is my staple go-to to ‘wash the day off of my face’.  Home from a long night at work, remove makeup, hop in the shower and this baby is straight on my face.  Repeat almost every single night.  Radiant Dawn features:

  • Green Apple
  • Lemon Extract
  • Blueberry Seed
  • Vitamin E bursting beads

The bursting beads give you a serious deep clean, scooping all the muck and foundation off your face and into the drain.  You can literally feel your skin becoming clean. I LAV IT! Price: £4.95

 skincare-3

New Leaf – Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish

“Cleans pores deep for clearer, softer skin”

Packed full of natural rice granules and mango and orange blossom extracts, the New Leaf Exfoliating Polish is a real indulgence for the skin.

This product does ever-so-slightly more exfoliating than the Radiant Dawn wash however, due to the intensity of cleansing I only ever use this product twice a week in my skincare routine.

Although this product is geared more towards toning and refreshing those with both combination and oily skin, the polish is also perfect for those who are feeling a little bit dry.  Definitely worth incorporating into a self-care pamper session, along with a face mask , candles and maybe even some bubbles! Price: £5.95

skincare-5

Spring Clean – Deep Cleansing Mask

“Purifies pores, combats oiliness & blemishes”

Hands down my FAVOURITE Amie product is the Spring Clean clay mask.  I’ve recently just discovered how relaxed and shiny my skin feels after putting on a facemask (for the first time in January 2017, I am so late to the face mask hype) and this specific clay mixture does just that, as well as leaving you with an almighty tingling sensation.  Feel the blackheads melt away in 5-10 minutes by slapping this mask on your T-zone.  Go on, I dare you.

skincare-7

 

So, those are my favourite Amie products.  Are there any you would purchase yourself?  Or do you have other items in the range which you’re dying to enthuse about?  Don’t be shy to give me a tweet or Insta message by following me on both platforms.

Beauty | Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Everybody under the sun is or has already talked and squawked about this year’s version of a summer miracle. Yes, of course I’m talking about Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water. It’s all over the high street, the internet and our faces. But is it really so great? And how does it fair on sensitive and gentle skin that is prone to flaring up with an aggressive outbreak of spots.  I’ve put it to the test over the last four weeks and now I’m going to share #MyLoveForMicellar.

2016-08-04 10.47.50

2016-08-04 10.48.30

What it says on the bottle.

2016-08-04 10.49.44

The latest edition to the Garnier family is the Micellar Cleansing Water. I picked up the ‘even for sensitive skin’ bottle – opposed to the other two varieties – due to forever having sensitive issues with my skin. The last thing I wanted was to add too many aspects to the pot and end up with a face full of boils. Where I’m concerned, minimalism and simplicity is key.

Coming in 125ml and 400ml bottles, the latter (based on using 2ml per cotton pad) claims that it has up to 200 uses per bottle. Of course, if you’re like me and use four/five cotton wool pads lathered with the stuff every morning and every night… You can kinda guess that you won’t get two hundred uses out of it. But still – 400ml for £5 or less? Bargain City!

Claiming to be Hypoallergenic (extremely unlikely to cause an allergic reaction) as well as importantly opthalmologically tested. That ‘big’ word literally means that scientists who created the product at Garnier have tested the product accordingly with eye disorders and diseases in mind.

I have done some research and am yet to find whether this ophthalmological testing was conducted on animals so, please, if you have any information, leave it in the comments section below!

The product simply removes makeup from the face, eyes and lips, without the aid of perfume, while also cleansing and soothing. It’s a no-rinse product, so slap-it-on before you slap your slap on (slap) and you’re good to go!

 

Packaging

The Micellar Cleansing Water comes in three varieties and three themed colours.

There’s the Micellar Oil-infused Cleansing Water (which has a grey bottle theme and is targeted at dry & sensitive skin).

There’s the Micellar Cleansing Water for combination & sensitive skin (which has a green theme and adds purifying and mattifying to the table).

And the third, original Micellar Cleansing Water, which is in a pink-themed bottle.

All bottles are in the same, easy to grab and aesthetically pleasing shape, making taking your makeup of as stylish and joyous as streaking it on.  I also find that because the bottle is made of a simple, transparent material (allowing you to fully see the substance inside) it almost seems purer and automatically better for your skin, compared to the crowd of over-complicated and harmful cleaners on the market. Also for colour chiefs, the coding of each bottle makes you want to purchase all three, even though you seriously don’t need to… There’s only so much face cleansing a gal can do!

How To Use?

Simple. Squirt as much – or as less – cleansing water as you desire onto your little cotton wool pad and wipe your face. Yep, that’s it. Wipe away honey bee. It removes your day/night makeup as well as cooly hydrating and cleansing your face. Easy as pie.

Results

I’ve never been one to take my makeup off. I’m that lazy girl who will sleep in last night’s party makeup and go to work in it the next day. However, since using the Cleansing Water I actually want and look forward to taking my makeup off at night. There’s seriously nothing like a fresh face to wake up in to start the day, and that is what the product specifically offers.

Since using the cleansing water, the redness on my face (rosy cheeks and constant flushing which I suffer from) has dimmed incredibly. My face feels clean, radiant and I can’t stop touching it. I’ve had no spot outbreak which is wondrous, and I honestly believe I’ve discovered a makeup remover which will suit my skin for an age.

A definite thumbs up from me on the Micellar Cleansing Water!

Have you had an experience with the Garnier poduct? What are your thoughts?

Side note: These results will not happen for everybody: this is not a product specifically designed to soften face redness. The results listed are my own, personal experiences with the product – every skin is different, love yours.

Beauty | Sexy Mother Pucker Lipgloss by Soap & Glory

Ah summer. In come the too short-shorts, the floral tea dresses and the ‘barely anything there’ makeup looks.  However, I’m not one of those girls who sits idol and waits until winter to uncover my love for drama and sparkles.  If it was acceptable to wear sparkles – other than the subtle pressed glitter in my Naked 2 and Smokey Eye pallats – I would.  24/7.  Therefore, who cares if it’s summer?  Gimme sparkles. 

I’m more of a ‘bold eye, nude lip’ kinda chick – pretty much because I can never find a lipstick or a lipgloss which makes me ‘wow’, or make me look in the mirror and say “huh, your lips don’t look like plastic surgery gone wrong!”.  I’ve got very full, pointed lips – which means I usually shy away from anything which will make them even more prominent than they already are.

However, I have found a saving grace, incorporating my love for subtlety lips and sparkles – the infamous ‘Sexy Mother Pucker’ lipgloss, from Soap & Glory.

If you’re a high-street warrior, then you know exactly why Soap & Glory products are worth the hype.  As I’ve previously said, I’m more of a dramatic eye/eyeliner type, which means nothing to extreme on the lips.  However, a set of five 4ml Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss practically fell into my hands from the S&G stand… And how could I say no to such pretty packaging?

IMG_1946

The set comes with five, 4ml in: ‘Plumsup‘, ‘Bare Enough‘, ‘Candy Queen‘, ‘Nudestar‘ and ‘Spun Sugar‘.

As a sparkle horder, ‘Sugar Spun’ is my favourite out of the set.

IMG_1945

For those who are in the dark – like I was – about Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss, Soap & Glory have created a shiny lipgloss which is bursting with Superfill Lip Pumping Spheres (which leave your lips with strong, tingling sensations – essentially feeling your lips are taking over your face) as well as Lipswell Natural Plant Oil Infusion.  Basically – they make your lips feel fantastic, full of life, and ready to shamelessly pout.

The full-size version of the Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss comes in a 7ml bottle, and is priced at a fair £9.  Considering a bareMinerals lipgloss will set you back £13, the Soap & Glory price comes out on top.

If, like me, you struggle with your lips but don’t want to leave them naked – then Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss is for you.

If you’ve ever tried, loved or hated lipgloss – let me know in the comments!

Beauty | Roller Lash Mascara by Benefit Cosmetics

Fronting the Spring 2015 marketing campaign, entitled ‘Welcome To Glamourland’, with an ingenious range of new-yet-essential products, is San Francisco-based make-up giant, Benefit Cosmetics.  Keeping in with the previously-championed retro edge; this seasons new editions to the Benefit range are sweetly nostalgic, with poppy, evocative packaging throwing back to a simpler time where  mascara and blush were are only neccessitys.

Stepping up the game by enhancing the brands appeal, Benefit have chock-filled our stockings with new and exciting goodies this spring season.  New editions to the already bursting range include: ‘the POREfessional: license to blot‘ oil blotting stick (£15.50); ‘they’re real! push-up liner‘ (£18.50) and ‘they’re real! remover’ (£14.50); ‘Bathina “just confess you’re obssessed”‘ scented mist (£24.50); ‘majorette‘ – blusher (£23.50); ultra plush lip gloss – ‘rockateur‘ rose gold and ‘hervana‘ berry pink (both £14.50) and ‘puff off’ undereye gel (£22.50).

The main success and new firm favourite of this season however is the ‘roller lash mascara‘, a product which is in the running to give the infamous Benefit ‘they’re real! mascara’ a run for it’s money.

FullSizeRender (1)

Appearing with the slogan “such a pretty curl” and the affirmations that the mascara will “hook, lift and curl”; the newest addition to the Benefit family claims we can say “bye-bye eyelash curler”.  Could this be perhaps overhype and over-confidence from the Benefit camp?

FullSizeRender (2)

Equipped with a specially-designed ‘Hook n’ Roll’ brush, roller lash is the essential ingredient needed to make eyes visibly become the talk of the town.  The product you ‘didn’t know you needed until you used it’; roller lash coats eyelashes perfectly for up to twelve hours, while living up to what it says on the bottle: lifting, defining and curling eyelashes.

FullSizeRender (3)

With the results of 97% of women agreeing the mascara visibly lifts lashes (survey of thirty-one women after four weeks usage), enhancing the overall appeal to the product (not to mention the beyond wonderfully feminine, baby-pink/black contrast packaging), the thought that once you go roller lash you can never go back doesn’t go amiss.

The results are startling.  You can see my experimentation with the roller lash mascara in the images below.  This product is the future of Benefit, and soon-to-be ultimate game-changer.

roller lash mascara, from Benefit Cosmetics, is available to purchase in Boots for £19.50.
