Eylure – Enchanted Limited Collection – Power Flower

IMG_7714

Wispy, lightweight eye lashes that create a naturally but full look!

These lashes balance volume with length due to the mix of long and short lashes. As they’re spaced out and not compacted into a black block, these are stunning for use with daily outings and events without making you look over done – subtle but noticeable. They’re wispy and very lightweight which makes them comfortable to wear, and the band flexes easy allowing a better fit to your natural lash line.

IMG_7716

As with all Eylure eyelashes – these come with the adhesive included. The thing I love about Eylure’s adhesive is that it comes with an easy to use applicator to allow precise application of the glue due to its flat and tapered end!

These are very easy to apply and remove – I can apply these using my fingers alone or along with a pair of tweezers, or using the Eylure applicator tool.

Bottom Line: These eyelashes are perfect for a daytime event, or for everyday wear as opposed to their more glamorous, fuller luxe collection eye lashes.

Saturday Lashes – A Pair for Everyday! 100% Handmade and Cruelty Free lashes! – PR

IMG_7026

A set of lashes for every day, all in one cute, curated collection!

I stumbled upon Saturday Lashes on Instagram one evening, and instantly fell in love with the brands premise – a collection of lashes for every day of the week. Please note these were gifted to me for use and promotional purposes.

These lashes are handmade and assembled in the USA where they use 100% cruelty free mink hairs – they are currently thinking of expanding with a vegan range for my Vegan followers!

IMG_7028

So how did Saturday Lashes come about? Katrina the owner decided that she was done with the status quo and delved right in to create her own natural, pair of eyelashes that wasn’t gaudy, heavy or overbearing for her eyes. She decided to curate a pair for every day of the week to complement our moods.

In the collection you get;

  • Monday Coffee – Doe-eyed Short and Long Lashes “You Woke Up Like This”
  • Tuesday Ease – Strong Clusters Broken Up By Crisscrossing Hairs, “Others Only Wish They Were You.
  • Wednesday Social –  Match lashes with Colourful Shadows, “Followers Beware.”
  • Thursday Blush – Heavy On The End For The Perfect Cat-eye, “Meow.”
  • Friday Night – Blue Lases Blended Into Black Make The Whites Of Eyes Whiter, “Go Boogie On Down.”
  • Saturday Morning – Pair With Dewy Skin and Light Makeup, “Do you hear that? They’re Looking For Their Missing Angel.”
  • Sunday Brunch -Eat Waffles, Drink OJ, and Take It Easy, “P.S.Use These Too!”

 

IMG_7027

The lashes come in different lengths to complement the name and day, allowing for subtle lashes for every day glamour to showstopping lashes to impress in the club. Allowing you to choose the style that best suits what event you’re wearing them for!

The band is very flexible, which allows it to mould easily to your eyelid from the start, but it does make it quite the task to remove them from the plastic tray – although I’d rather have that than have a rigid band stabbing me in the eyelid or pinging off… With the proper care, these lashes can withstand up to 20 uses, making them a very good investment if you’re willing to take care of them compared to ones off the high-street.

Bottom Line: The variety Saturday Lashes have to offer is amazing with a cute set designed for every day!

Price: From $27 a set, at Saturday Lashes.

Sleek Makeup – i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette – A New Day – ABH Soft Glam Dupe?!?

Firstly, massive THANK YOU! to Sleek Makeup for this huge haul for me to try out and review for my lovely followers!!!

IMG_6096.JPG

The first item I will be reviewing from this collection is their A New Day palette which is a stunning array of on-trend blushed neutrals, oranges and browns! Please note, I did receive this item complimentary from Sleek Makeup!

IMG_6102

This palette boasts 12 neutral shades for you to mix and match to create your own subtle, glamorous looks which are on trend. You get warm brown shades to define and smoke out your looks, and beautiful light shimmer shades to help highlight and create halo looks.

IMG_6103

Whilst I was using this palette I wasn’t surprised at the creaminess and the lack of fallout – Sleek Makeup eye shadow are brilliant value and great quality. I’ve always been excited when they release a new i-Divine! These eye shadows are creamy to apply, not dusty, blend well and are very pigmented considering their cost point! They also last a long while without eye shadow primer, so if you’re in a rush to get out the door these will stay put for hours without necessary prep time!

One thing that I did notice is how similar the palette it is to my Anastasia’s Beverly Hill’s Soft Glam palette which my boyfriend bought me. The colours are very similar, apart from the stunning foiled shadows and the brighter orange. The basic shadows are all the same hues, and can be built up to match the vividness of the ABH shadows, but there is a lack of pigmented, foiled shades to complete the Sleek palette.

This palette is perfect for matte, neutral looks but if you want more glamorous, showstopping with glitter on top shadows, then you’ll need to team it up with another palette!

Bottom Line: Lovely pigmented, great colour pay off eye shadows that are worth the price!

Price: £8.99 at Boots.com.

Eylure – Luxe Collection False Eyelashes – Trinket

FullSizeRender

A beautifully, wispy, full length lashes!

As you know I am a huge fan of the Eylure and Fleur De Force collaboration eyelashes, so I decided to try some others from the Eylure range as I wanted to have a bit of variety with my falsies to suit a wide range of my makeup looks.

The first thing I noticed about the Luxe range, is that they’re advertised as their more premium lashes, with faux mink effect, to add a dash of cruelty free glamour! As they’re premium, they come with a higher price tag – but so does everything else so no surprise there. The one thing I noticed about these eyelashes is that the range is a lot more thin and wispy than the others which I found to be thick and cumbersome.

This style I feel is the best for a light glam look where you’re worried your lashes will hide in your eyeliner in photos, as they look false, yet not overly so that you look like you’ve just attached two black caterpillars to your eyes…

I also picked up their Luxe Bumble eyelashes which are a lot more va, va, voom than these – so keep your eyes peeled for my review on them! In the meantime, you can catch all my false eyelashes reviews here!

Bottom Line: These eyelashes are easy to apply, and the adhesive included in the package is so simple to use. Gives a wonderful, premium wispy look!

Price: £9.95 from Boots

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS – Glow Kit – Moonchild

IMG_1812

Amazing quality and value – a little highlight goes a long way!

I decided to get this palette as I’m a huge ABH Glow Kit fan, ever since I glanced at one in Sephora! This one is the same high quality, and high pigmented that is standard for ABH cosmetics.

IMG_1804

The colours are all pastel, with some duo-chromatic shades such as Blue Ice. They’re amazing to use as highlights or as some light, shimmery eye-shadows. The shades are very pigmented, so a little goes a long way, and can create unique galactic looks.

Bottom Line: An amazing glow kit for out of this world highlight – but sadly I’m still obsessed with my Nicole G kit and prefer that for day-to-day glow!

Price: £39 at BeautyBay.com.

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Pen – Long-Wearing Eyebrow Tint

IMG_7226

It’s a shame the only good thing about this is the packaging…

So after being a huge ABH fan I saw a tutorial on Instagram that used this. It looked amazing! I’ve had this on my ‘Must Buy’ list and took advantage of the amazing deals Beauty Bay were having, and finally got this!

I’m so unbelievably disappointed by this product. The video, posted by ABH themselves, showed it off to be the ultimate felt tip pen style brow tint – delivering bold and highly pigmented strokes to create and style your brows. What did I end up with? A limp pen that left watery and dim lines that hardly defined anything…

I’m so devastated by this – it was £17, hardly cheap – and it leaves so much more to be desired. The one saving grace of this item, aside from the amazing packaging (what do you expect – its Anastasia Beverly Hills after all), is the fact I now use this for a “not so done” natural eyebrow look rather than filling it in as it does deliver a long lasting tint.

Bottom Line: Doesn’t deliver a defined stroke, but good for a more natural, slightly styled eyebrow look.

Price: £17 at BeautyBay.com.

Laura Mercier – Foundation Primer

fullsizerender6

Gives a beautiful finish for applying your foundation smoothly. 

I got this primer in my Love Me Beauty box, as it was a couple of credits and I am so happy I did! This will definitely become a full size purchase.

The pink hued primer, has a slight gel consistency, helps prevent any harmful effects from the environment due to its added antioxidants Vitamin A, C and E. It doesn’t have a distinct fragrance, and its colourless although slightly pale pink but is unbelievably lightweight. It glides on super easily due to the gel-cream texture to provide a protective cover and helps reduce puffiness.

I tend to use a pea sized amount each day, so this deluxe sample has lasted a long while! After using this primer my makeup tends to be set for a good 7 hours until it starts to show wear and tear!

Bottom Line: A lightweight, unbelievably silky smooth primer that protects your skin from daily harm!

Price: £29 @ Feel Unique , or frequently in Love Me Beauty beauty boxes -If you’re interested in joining Love Me Beauty use the code ROSEM3295520 – for 90 free credits (equivalent to £21 worth of beauty).

Lush – The Kiss Lip Scrub – Valentines 2017

fullsizerender-19

A lovely sweet and salty lip scrub, which tastes as good as it scrubs!

This lip scrub is a vibrant red that leaves a pink tint to your lips. It has a lovely cherry scent but a sherbet-esque sweet and salty taste. It’s quite hard to use as I keep on trying to lick it off my lips- like a devilish doughnut.

It’s perfect for using before a matte/liquid lipstick as it scrubs away all your dead skin and conditions and hydrates your lips all in one -allowing a flawless application of the lipstick. It’s made up of sugar and salt – allowing natural and soft exfoliation. It isn’t harsh, and I even used it on my cut lip and it didn’t hurt or make it worse – it’s very gentle!

This lip scrub is self preserving and vegan! So it is perfect for using for a long while. I’ve been using it twice daily (in the morning and before bed) and I still have loads left!

This one has cute edible little hearts in as it is a Valentines day exclusive! It would make a cute little gift to get lips truly kissable.

Bottom Line:  A sherbet exfoliation extraordinaire!

Price: £5.75 at Lush
(This is a Valentines day special so get it quick!)
