TonyMoly I’m Real Tomato Radiance Sheet Mask

I love the TonyMoly sheet masks – they’re the perfect size to fit on my small face. The eye & mouth holes are in the right place for me, which very rarely happens. It is infused with tomato fruit extract to boost radiance, smooth and moisturise skin, It feels so refreshing and nourishing. I like that there is a lot of essence and after you remove the mask you can massage the excess product into your skin. This leaves my skin feeling incredible & although I don’t notice a massive difference in radiance I do think my skin looks smooth, healthy and feels so nourished. I have so may of these – there are 11 masks in the range and they’re all wonderful.

Mio Double Buff Enzyme Exfoliator

This was just a deluxe sample from a beauty box but I was very impressed. How it works,

‘This is double action body buffing in 30 seconds flat. Exfoliation is key to fit skin. We developed Double Buff to avoid the ‘big bits, little bits’ problem with many salt/oil scrubs. These can make you feel well exfoliated but, in reality, the big shards of salt or sugar rake your skin. If you saw this under a microscope, you would never use chunky scrubs again! Our Double Buff uses perfectly rounded spheres of Pumice, Lava and Bamboo blended with Papaya and Pineapple enzymes to help dissolve away any roughness.’

Because I only had a small tube I used this below the knee after shaving & before applying my gradual tan & it worked a treat to smooth my legs. My tan was easy to apply and it was so even and didn’t cling to any dry patches. This is so gentle and not an abrasive exfoliator. I really want the full size now.

Essence Plump no Clump Mascara

This is one of my favourite budget friendly mascara’s, its pigmented, long wearing and never smudges. I really like the massive brush, it coats every lash without applying too much product. I 100% recommend checking this out if you have Essence near you.

Mandara Spa Ylang Ylang & Coconut Body Butter*

This was a really nice nourishing body butter, quite a thick consistency but I liked using it over the colder months. It smells like a relaxing spa and you can smell the scent on your skin for quite a while after you apply it. Its is packed full of lovely ingredients including moisturising shea, cocoa and mango butters, smoothing sweet almond oil, nourishing coconut oil, soothing frangipani flower milk, fragrant orange and ylang ylang. I really like this & would happily repurchase.

DHC Liquid Eyeliner EX Black

LOVE this eyeliner – its very pigmented and jet black. The nib is extremely fine and flexible so it is ideal for achieving that precise winged liner look. This lasted me for months without drying out, if you’re looking for a new liquid liner then I highly recommend this DHC one.

Champneys Skin Comforting Bathing Milk

I love Champney, their products are always luxurious and wonderful quality. I’ve used quite a lot from them over the years and this bath milk is always something I repurchase. Its gentle and leaves my skin very soft and smooth. A bottle lasts a long time and you only need a little product in each bath

Current Mascara Line Up

Current Mascara Line Up

Current Mascara Line Up

Like most beauty addicts I always have more than one mascara on the go at any one time & right now I am using some of my absolute favourite mascaras. I like my mascara to help my lashes look long, hold a curl and maybe give the illusion I was blessed with more lashes than I actually have. What mascara are you loving right now & which should I avoid?

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara Brush

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir*

This is the newest mascara in my collection and I have to say it has been receiving the most love too. If you like subtle quite natural looking lashes then this is not for you at all. This is one of the best false lash effect mascaras I have ever tried. It adds such volume and length to my lashes, I love it. Its jet black & absolutely smudge proof so you can rely on this mascara to stay put! If you love fluttery lashes that have that false lash effect then this is one to add to your wishlist. I also think at £20 its very well priced.

Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies

Not a massive fan of this, it clumps on my lashes and after a couple of hours It seems to end up halfway down my face! So much fall out under my eyes! This is not a mascara I would recommend, I found it very messy and hard to remove. It does give volume but I just don’t like the formula so I am looking forward to parting ways with this mascara.

Lancome Hypnose Mascara Wand

Lancome Hypnose Mascara

LOVE this mascara and until the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir came into my life Hypnose was my go to mascara. It still is the perfect mascara for fanning out your lashes and making them look healthy, long and fluttery. This isn’t as dramatic as Velvet Noir but I do wear this more during the day and I love the brush and how it grabs every individual lash and coats them all with product without applying too much and weighing them down. Hypnose is still a front runner and I always recommend this mascara because it has never let me down.

Max Factor Velvet Volume Mascara

Max Factor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara*

I like this because my lashes never feel crispy when I’m wearing this, no matter how many coats I apply & there is no fall out or smudging. It has a big plastic wand and the different sized bristles helps coat every single lash, the formula is also great at holding a curl. No clumping or fall out, this is another fab mascara from Max Factor and one of my favourite everyday options. Oh & I have been using this for almost 3 months now & it hasn’t started to dry out, so that pleases me.

Eye Of Horus Goddess Mascara

Eye Of Horus Goddess Mascara

This is a great one for quite natural looking lashes, not in a no makeup kind of way but more of a, my lashes look long, healthy and they’re all natural kind of way (am I making sense?). Its a pretty mascara for daytime and will add length to short lashes and give them definition. Its understated but always makes me look awake and my lashes long! The formula is the perfect consistency and it has very good staying power. This is a reliable mascara and one you can wear everyday for pretty natural lashes.

Essence Plump No Clump Mascara

Essence Plump No Clump Mascara

What a budget beauty this Essence mascara is – plump no clump indeed. Look at that massive brush, it leaves no lash out & gives them a coat of jet black mascara leaving them looking full, volumised and long. This is another mascara with a pretty big brush, I think we are seeing a common theme, I like big brushes & I can not lie. This is an affordable mascara but it works, it works very very well.

For false lash effect the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir is a must buy & best budget friendly but also incredible quality the Essence Plump no Clump is one mascara you need in your collection
