Roller Lash by Benefit

15 Feb

At the beginning of the week I felt great about my new fresh faced, mascara free day look. I loved the time spared in the morning and I was beginning to feel chic and all Parisian-like with my messy hair and bright eyes.

Mid-week my eyes started to not look so good and as my Wednesday dragged on I started to get a sharp pain in my face, I took myself off to the doctors to find I have acute sinusitis and was sent on my way with a course of antibiotics.

I needed a pick-me-up or rather a perk-me-up, with my eyes looking far too tired and weary to go sans mascara I decided to try out the latest Elle magazine freebie, Benefit’s new mascara ‘Roller Lash’.

Benefit says this is a super-curling & lifting mascara and in a consumer panel survey 94% of women said their eyes looked more wide open, that’s exactly what I needed!

This mascara definitely opened up my eyes and it’s great for giving a good lengthy curl but it’s missing volume and that’s one important thing I look for when buying a new mascara.

Adoring Essie

30 Jan

Hi there,

I’ve found myself wearing a whole host of dark nail varnishes recently, it’s been a rather moody winter but I’m ready to say auf wiedersehen to the January blues.

I was after a cool grey nail varnish to brighten things up in a relaxed way and I found this beautiful one from Essie.

It has the most fabulous name too… Maximilian Strasse Her, it’s named after the royal avenue in Munich that has the highest retail rents in Germany. We’re talking one expensive looking polish here!

Matte Me

19 Jan

Hi everyone,

Just a quick post to say I am loving this great lip colour from Sleek, it’s super Matte (the clue is in the name) and makes my lips looks full and soft.

2015/01/img_3859.jpgThis shade is called Petal and it co-ordinates beautifully with my Essie Bobbing for Baubles nail varnish!

2015/01/img_3860.jpgI’m wearing pink on my lips in an attempt to bring on an early spring but I fear it’s not working as there is snow forecast!!
