Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Ultra Black

The 'Mascara Fatigue' seems to thankfully have lifted as now I have a couple of mascaras I am digging, including this bad boy from Bourjois.  I have trying to review this for about a month now, but each picture I took hasn't really done it justice, so instead I decided the way forward was to include some creepy, close-up, eye collages for your viewing pleasure... The Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara is an impressive product that delivers[...]


Boots No7 Exceptional Definition Mascara

During my extremely enjoyable Boots haul (post here) for the #LetsFeelLikeNew campaign I picked up not one, not two but THREE mascaras. Mascara is a weird one for me as I so rarely find one I really love, but I also find the possibility that my next Holy Grail mascara is just around the corner a motivation to keep trying pretty much every one that's released.  Even when I'm suffering from Mascara Fatigue (I put in caps to make it appear like an[...]

Lancome Hypnose Mascara Minis Gift Set DEAL

Boots have got some fab deals happening at the moment, my favourite of which is this gorgeous set of Lancome mascaras.  For £22.50 you get four mascaras in total, one of which is full-sized.  A full-sized Lancome mascara is £22.50 so you're actually just getting the minis for free, but it's still a great deal, especially if you've always wanted to give the Lancome mascaras a go but didn't know where to start. The set includes: Origina[...]


Lancome Grandiose Mascara

Any new take on mascara almost always results in me getting my credit card out to find out what the fuss is about, and the latest arrival from Lancome is no different.  The Lancome Grandiose Mascara is aesthetically a thing of beauty which I am happy to describe as the prettiest mascara packaging I surely ever did see.  I mean, just look at it! The slender tapered handle containing a black rose is just soooo pretty. However, pretty packag[...]


Code VLM Volumising Lengthening Mascara

There was a time when mascara was my ultimate beauty product and the one thing I couldn't say "no" to; it was my desert island product and no matter how much make-up I had on, if I wasn't wearing mascara then I felt naked.  However, recently I've started suffering from mascara fatigue and I think it's down to the fact that my pregnancy ruined my lashes.  I used to have long, relatively thick and easy to curl lashes but now there's not much to wr[...]


Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara

Honestly I very rarely try luxury mascaras any more as I do believe the high street is now delivering mascaras that perform just as well (and often better!) than their higher-priced counterparts and this one from Bourjois is a fantastic example of this.  The Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara is designed to quickly wrap each lash in a coat of volumising mascara making application simple and quick.  I think the "1 second" reference is possibly a b[...]


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Too Faced are an interesting brand as they've only recently become prominent in the UK market...again.  There was a time when they were fairly big; they were available in Boots and were as equally tongue in cheek as they are now.   They've always been big fans of the 'sex sells' approach to marketing, which to be honest I'm not sure I'm a big fan of, but maybe that's just me becoming a prude which old age. Whether I like the marketing tac[...]


Shavata Lash Fabricator

Shavata is a brand that's probably most famous for it's brow products (and indeed the lady behind the brand who has a reputation for creating perfect arches in even the most caterpillar-like brows) but they actually have a pretty extensive range of lash products too, including the Lash Fabricator which is a two phase product designed to extend and volumise lashes. The Shavata Lash Fabricator is like false lashes in bottle and is ideal for t[...]


Clinique Lash Power Feathering Mascara

Mascaras have become quite 'samey' lately, with the idea being that everyone wants gigantic, long, spidery lashes with that wow factor, and consequently the mascaras are designed to deliver (or at least try...) as much oomph as possible.  I love a big lash just as much as the next person, but lately I've been enjoying very gentle, easy make-up looks that just add a bit of a lift and definition, which is what I think the Clinique Lash Power Feathe[...]
