Benefit - Roller Lash Mascara

We all love a new product launch! I particularly like a new Benefit product launch. Their creative marketing makes every new product super desireablre and the launch of Roller Lash has been no exception. 
For the first time Benefit has launched a product via Elle magazine. Meaning that Elle readers get a trial size Roller Lash mascara with this months issue. Now I may be a cynic but in no other circumstance would I pay £5 for a magazine full of handbags and shoes that I really cannot afford and in all honesty not much substance (my opinion) but £5 for a sneak peek of this new mascara? Hell yeah! 



I'm a huge fan of They're Real in terms of lengthening but as someone who can rarely find her eyelash curler this product seemed ideal. Was I sceptical? Yes. Was I proved wrong? Yes. 


I actually love this mascara... It does  a great job of curling lashes without the need of eyelash curlers at all. It also lengthens lashes considerably. 
It's not the first mascara to use an arched brush to create lift but it is the best one I've used! 


You can also layer up this mascara with no clumping - great news! 

For me and my needs when putting this mascara next to They're Real this one gets my vote. 


Bravo. Benefit. Bravo!

Urban Decay - Naked Flushed Palette

I will openly admit I'm an Urban Decay fanatic. More so now than ever before. 

I had the Urban Decay Flushed Palette in Streak for Christmas. 
I opted for this shade because firstly, I love a coral cheek and I also have the same shade in a lipgloss and lip liner. Complete the set and all that. ;-) 



So in the Flushed palette you get your classic blush shade, a highlighter and a bronzer which is great for contouring. 
Everything you need to perk up your cheeks. 
The packing is convenient but still classically Urban Decay. It also comes with a mirror so is super convenient for on the go. 
If anyone doesn't fancy buying all the bits individually this is a great idea. 


The cheek colour is matte in this palette but is very pigmented and you get a great colour from a little bit of product. 

It retails for £22.50 which I think is excellent value for money!

Duo Lash Glue

We've all had that moment when one corner of your false lash starts to peel away from your eyelid, because the glue that usually comes with lashes is pretty rubbish. 
I've found that I've managed to get by, by using glue I've gotten with Illamasqua and Urban Decay lashes which is pretty good. 
However since I've become a false eye lash addict I'm going through them thick and fast so I wanted to buy a separate and decent glue. 


I opted for the Duo lash glue and picked up the darker tone one which I ordered from www.falseeyelashes.co.uk. 
Once this glue is stuck those lashes are not going to budge all night! Would defo recommend.

Kat Von D. Shade & Light Contour Palette

I love to contour. It totally changes the shape of my face! And I'm aware that the whole contour and highlight thing is traditionally a drag technique. But seriously you just be living under a rock if you've not heard of it. 

But for today's post I'm going to hand you over to Elinor.. 


I've read about contouring in a couple of magazines and we all see celebrities like Kim kardashian using contouring on a daily basis to enhance facial features. 

On a recent holiday to America I decided to purchase a product to try contouring myself. There was so much choice and different shades that I didn't really know where to start. One of the shop assistants in sephora approached me and I told him what I was looking for. 

He pointed me in the direction of this product. Kat Von D is a tattoo artist and works on Miami ink. I immediately liked the look of the product (the packaging is very glossy) and after being told there were 3 shades so I could go darker or lighter depending on the occasion, I'd made the decision to purchase. 


I explained I'd never tried contouring before and the make up artist suggested he show me how to use the palette on my face so I'd get the most out of the product. He showed me which parts of my face to shade in the darker powder and which parts to highlight.



I learned quickly that it was all about following the lines on your face and using the product did completely change my face. I have always been a bit paranoid that the bridge of my nose is too wide but this made it seem thinner. It also gave me prominent cheek bones which I loved. 


I was delighted with it. The price was very reasonable at $46 (about £28) and I liked the fact it also came with a leaflet to help use it. 

I'm now addicted and use my palette to contour every day!

OGX Biotin & Collagen weightless, reviving oil treatment

I am aware that whenever I blog about a hair product it's always a product for limp  flat lifeless hair and that's because I have limp, flat, lifeless hair. 
I picked up this product in Boots when calling in for a serum for the ends of my hair. This caught my attention tho and as it can be used as a serum too I picked it up... Two birds one stone and all that. 

You apply the product to your hair when damp - I use it just before I blow dry - lengths and ends. 
I was dubious at first with it being an oil, whether it would make my hair look greasy and although it states weightless I still had my concerns. 
After first application and blow dry - I realised the product didn't leave my hair greasy at all and it did feel thicker and fuller. It also makes my hair feel thicker all day maintaining body that I would have usually lost. 

Not stopped using it since I first tried it and I have to say I'm impressed. Plus it smells yummy too. 

There's a full range of Biotin and Collagen products from OGX available from Boots and Supermarkets. 
This one is around £6.99 but can usually be picked up in multibuy promotions.
