Maybelline XXL Mascara

It came to the time where i needed a new mascara, recently i haven't found any i love since a really old bourjois one which i really hard to get hold of, think they may have discontinued it :( So i searched the Internet and decided to try Maybellines XXL Mascara, which is a double ended mascara one white end and one black.
http://www.cosmetic-kingdom.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/maybelline_mascara_xxl_extensions-300x298.jpg

Step one; is a the white product with micro fibres that is said to tame, align and volumize lashes.
Step two; is the black mascara product which claims to extend your lashes hence the name.



I'm was actually quite impressed with this product to begin with for the price range i believe its a good product. I had no product fall under my eyes at the end of the day, and i felt it was easy to remove. It definitely did make my lashes appear longer although at times the mascara was clumpy  due to having to use two steps of product.
One bad point Ive found is Ive only had it a few weeks and it actually started to dry up, to be honest i don't think you get a lot of product and therefore i probably wont repurchase this item.

I was recently browsing a new blog that I've found http://annieandthemannequinsvintage.blogspot.com and they did a post about mood changing nail varnish and mood rings. This took me back to my childhood, I'm sure many of you, can relate to the mood rings from your childhood. So i was inspired and started searching for mood changing nail varnish's here's a few images i found;

Mac Face and body

Mac Face and body foundation is one of those foundations you seem to hear a lot about, its one of those you think i must try this. It's been on my want list for quite a while so about a month or so ago i decided to go ahead and purchase.
Its got a watery like consistency, which once applies set on your face in seconds. It gives you a natural skin finish.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NrtwkVJj6g4/TbBHEQSkLxI/AAAAAAAAAGE/sbAyB_32sVo/s1600/mac-hd-02.jpg
Here's mine in the shade C2:



And here's a swatch of the shade C2


Pro's:
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to apply
  • Gives a healthy dewy glow
  • As its got a thin consistency the bottle will last you quite a long while
  • Natural looking, so great for daytime looks
  • Its not really got a smell to it
Con's:
  • It seemed great for about a month and then it started to irritate my skin and broke me out
  • Won't cover spots up well
  • Depending on what coverage you want, sometimes its too minimal
  • Sometimes it made my skin oily (not nice)
For me this impressed to begin with but when i started to break out it was the end of my mac face and body.
So i continue the search for the best all around foundation...

Colour Blocking

Heres some inspiration for the colour blocking trend;
www.beadistinctive.com

 You could even colour block you make-up, what gorgoeus colours!!


http://www.sensationalcolor.com/liveinfullcolor/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/orange-dominates-fashion-color-block-trend.jpg



 I cant wait to start mixing and experimenting with all the wonderful colours for spring/summer :)

Rodial glamtox eye light pen

Normally i wouldn't really buy something like this but i found it at a bargain price in my local Tk Maxx, so i thought what the heck i may aswell give it ago.
This item retails at £35.00 which i must admit it abit steep, there are similar item on the market from brands such as YSL. It claims to be an eye brightening concealer that erases any signs of fatigue and brightens the complexion. Although its an eye concealer it suggest on the box that you can use it in areas such as; hollow of the chin and contours of the nose.


I only used this under my eyes, i found that it did definitely brighten up my eyes but sometimes there just wasn't enough coverage for this to replace my normal concealer. The product is of a sheer liquid like consistency, which is dispensed using a click pen. You apply just a few strokes under the eye area, like a normal concealer.
Overall i do agree that it brightens up your eyes but i don't think i'd repurchase this, as i believe the retail price is to steep for what the product delivers. Although saying that there are many rodial products i would love to try, like the snake serum and boob lift. :)

 Love gabbie

A collective haul

These items are all from over the space of a few months, some are gifts and most of them i brought myself.
As I'm a student I'm in a small budget but with the likes of ebay.com/co.uk, you can often find many designer bargains! Here's a few piccies;

My favourite purchase , are these beauties a pair of prada sunglasses, I've been lusting of a pair like these for years but never been in a position to afford them. But thanks to ebay i managed to grab these for £40.00 wooo :)
But i word of warning there are many fakes items on ebay make sure you do your research for sunglasses read up about serial codes.


The maxi skirt, is a fab item for spring/summer. You can wear its whenever you want and its so easy to just chuck on, you bearly have to think about your outfit!

I just couldn't resist this, its a bluey purple colour and flows so elegantly and yet it was £12.00 from primark!! Love a bargain

The next item was a gift from my mother, she knew i had wanted a pair of these
for ages. They're Vivienne westwood globe earrings, there plain silver but because they are plain they will go with everything!!

Flowerbomb

Viktor and Rolf
My mum recently brought me this back from duty free, as she had been away on holiday. I had seen this
perfume advertisement in a magazine but i not normally the kinda girl too experiment with perfumes. Although
i must say this has a lovely scent, great for spring and summer. Its a sweet floral scent, you start to smell raspberries,rose petals its girly and glamorous. The packaging is ok but i do like the simple bottle, its a glass hot pink bottle in the shape of a grenade, which is hot pink at the bottom and gradually decreases into a baby pink nearer the top. This is now my new daytime fragrance so i can save some of my Chanel coco mademoiselle :)  X

Have you found a new perfumes lately, in time for summer?
