Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Review: Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara Waterproof

Whether you have the most luscious numbers that you could use to fan yourself or difficult straight eyelashes like I do, we can all agree that it can be a bit tricky knowing which mascara does what. Out of all the types of beauty product I own, mascara is one of the only products that I hardly use. In fact, my impression of mascaras is that they really aren’t that different from each other both in terms of formulaΒ or wand and on top of that, they are such a hassle to apply properly. My fellow straight and sparse lashed girls will surely relate to my 10-minute long process of curling my lashes and then apply a couple of coats to try to get a little volume (any volume…please?). I had originally picked up the Lash Sensational mascara as a present for someone else who then told me how good it was. So in the end, I decided to pick up one for myself, especially seeing as my Benefit Real Lash mascara was on its last …

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Medium and Sand

Review: Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in Sand & Medium

Happy start of the week! And good luck on your week ahead because I know I will need it. The lucky product to slip under my vigorous screening process as of late is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in both Sand 20 and Medium 25. I’ve been hearing that this Fit Me concealer is a great dupe of the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer so it sounds very promising to me! πŸ™‚ I initially bought this concealer in the Sand colour at my local supermarket thinking it wouldn’t be too far off in colour. But it turns out my guesstimation was sadly wrong and I needed to pick up the next colour up in Medium. I think this experience just tells me to stopΒ buying foundation-type face products from the supermarket when I don’t have a tester to try out. Lesson learnt and note taken. Prior to getting these Maybelline Fit Me concealers I was using the Rimmel Match Perfection concealer and had run through about 4 of those babies before I decided to make a switch …

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy 330 Impassioned Red Lipstick Open

Review: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick 330 Impassioned

Hey all! If you’re anything like me, finding the perfect shade of red lipstick has been on your beauty wish list for yonks. Don’t you just yearn for that sexy, demure red lip look with a bold intense cat eye? Talk about a total pin-up goddess! For today, I’ll be reviewing the Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in 330 Impassioned by Estee Lauder. So a red lipstick huh. Any red lipstick will do right? Wrong. You might think finding a shade of red is as easy as a finding a good old shade of pink but it is significantly harder than that. In fact, finding the correct red lipstick is really much like finding the right shade of foundation. For foundations you will have the usual cool, warm and neutral undertones. With red lipstick, the colour can have a tinge of blue/cool to orange/warm tones too which can greatly affect how it looks and suits your face. The process of choosing one is quite complicated really and you can only keep on trying reds from …
