Two Branded Makeup MOTD Look: Spotlight on Covergirl and MaxFactor

Hi Guys,

I am back from my 6+ weeks travelling yay and hopefully I will be back to a regular blog routine asap! As soon as I get over the jet lag lol!

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen I created a full makeup look using only Covergirl and MaxFactor products (plus brows and cheeks as I didn’t have any Covergirl or MaxFactor products for these areas). So let’s get into how I created this look..

Benefit Roller Lash Review

Hi Guys,

So recently I was lucky enough to go to a Brisbane blogging event in Brisbane called Obsession where Benefit came along and did their first Australian launch demonstration of their new hit product called the Roller Lash. I was extremely honoured to be apart of something like this and the passion the benefit ladies has just blows me away. Anyways, so I just had to review this mascara for you before it launches in Australian stores on April 11.

You know how some of us have to use a lash curler before applying our mascara? Well no more! This mascara boasts of giving a curled lash effect and my results below are a true testament this mascara does just that. The “Hook ‘n Roll” brush grabs the lashes, separates them and adds lift and curl. I also love the curve setting formula as I find that the sticky formula really does help the mascara to set in place once it has been curled. The only risk that the sticky mascara formula runs is it may possibly become quite clumpy if you overdo it on the lashes too much so be careful not to layer too much – not that you need to anyways.

You know those tiny little lashes right on the inner corner of our eye which are a nightmare to grab? Well this mascara is those little tiny hairs best friend. This mascara wand is a lot smaller than their previous mascara brushes which gives it the ability to get right in there in and coat those bad boys in this glorious formula.

You know how your mascara often rolls off your benchtop? Well Benefits Roller Lash stops this altogether as the rubber end of the packing ensures that baby wont budge from the benchtop. Did I mention how adorably cute the package is also? Love it, and lets be honest, who doesn’t love super cute packaging.

You know how mascara can sometimes get clumpy when there’s too much formula on the brush? Well the Benefit Roller Lash combats that product overload issue with the built in wand wiper which evenly distributes the perfect amount of product on the mascara wand.

So should the Benefit Roller Lash be next on your wish list? Yes, yes and yes! Not only does this mascara curl those lashes, it also lengthens, separates and adds volume. I love the sticky formula as I find it holds the lashes in place which is also perfect as there is no flaking or smudging. I tried They’re Real and Roller Lash together and they are a match made in heaven and provide the perfect lash. Benefit is an innovative successful company and I absolutely love their new invention – the Roller Lash.

This product launches in Australia on April 11 so make sure to be there to grab yours, love it!

My love-hate relationship with mascara

Hi Guys,

Today we are having a chat. About mascara, which is singlehandedly the most amazing and frustrating product I have EVER and will EVER use. In its defence, it makes my non-existent blonde eyelashes come to life. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes on the worst of days and doesn’t discriminate with a left hand application like nail polish. Without it I would look, well.. its better if I just show you..

It’s weird right. So you can appreciate why I find mascara such an essential product in my everyday life. It allows me to go from creepy alien girl so a somewhat normal looking human being.

But see my frustration stems from my love-hate relationship with the product. Let me explain, I have been using mascara since I was a twelvie and yet I am still unable to master the art of mascaration (applying mascara successfully, it’s a new word I made, go with it!). My issue is, is that despite having used mascara for over ten years now, I have not and believe I cannot prevent this..

Perfectly done eyes with mascara that’s gone and ruined it!!

Ahh this is a first world problem I know, but it had to be said.

Don’t even get me started on eyeliner..

RANT OVER

Until next time..

Simple Makeup: Go to work

Hi Guys,

This is what I use if I want to go to work with some make-up on. Usually I will just wear mascara as I like to be bare faced at work as I don’t have the best skin. I find I get a lot of pimples and black heads when I wear make-up for full days.

So here is what I have been using. Its a very minimal look. Which is what you want when going to work so here are the products I used.

– Rimmel Scandel Eyes Mascara

– Lioele Triple the Solution BB cream

– MAC naked honey collection eyebrow pencil

– Australis Powder

What make-up look do you prefer to wear to work?
