NYX Doll Eye Mascara

NYX Doll Eye Mascara

For so long I’ve wanted a mascara that would not only give me wonderful looking lashes but one that wasn’t going to run down my cheek if I got caught in a rain shower or ended up being a bit teary for some reason or another, which I’m sure many hormonal girls out there can relate too!

I recently picked up the NYX Doll Eye Mascara after it was recommended to me during a beauty bloggers chat on social media and needed to replace the one I’d been using.  Now I’ve been through a lot of different mascaras, and what works for one person might not work for me, but I’m so glad I bought this one as it’s probably my most favourite mascara to date. It comes in three different versions, lengthening, volume or waterproof, which is the one I bought, and they all come in the shade black. First of all the price, it costs £7.00 which I think is an absolute bargain considering I’ve paid a lot more for a mascara that really hasn’t been up to the job.

The wand is super easy to use, it’s fairly thin and shaped in kind of an hour glass shape, which I like. The brush doesn’t pick up too much product all at once, yet it still managed to coat the full length of my lashes really well. I usually curl my lashes first, then apply my mascara by tilting my head backwards, looking down into a mirror and wiggling the brush through my lashes to make sure each one has been covered in mascara. I was so pleased that this mascara held the curl nicely in place. Having quite fair eyelashes I did go back for a second coat just to make sure all the little lashes were completely covered and the brush is thin enough to use on my lower lashes as well without getting mascara everywhere, which is great considering how long I’ve spent doing the rest of my eye makeup.

The NYX Doll Eye Mascara contains a blend of natural oils, with vitamin E and its a drier formula which means there less risk of smudging during the application.

I’ve been using this everyday for about a couple of weeks and absolutely amazed that there has been no flaking or smudging, it’s just stayed put even after being out in a down pour! It literally lasts all day.

I wouldn’t say it’s given me full “Doll Eye” dramatic lashes, however it adds enough volume for it to be a fantastic everyday mascara. It really lengthened and defined my lashes rather than giving them loads of volume, plus I like that there isn’t any clumping and it separates my lashes without making them look all spidery. I’m also really happy that this mascara didn’t irritate my eyes!

I found it so easy to remove at the end of the day just by taking a cotton wool pad and soaking it in a waterproof eye makeup remover, placing it over my eye for a bit, then gently wiping it away, simple, and I didn’t wake up with panda eyes the following morning!

Overall, I’ve loved using this little beauty and I’ll definitely repurchase, however if you’re after a full on fake lash look then maybe this one isn’t for you, but if you’re in need of a mascara that gives your lashes lots of length and stays put no matter what then I highly recommend it!

Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette

Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette
I thought it was high time I got a new blusher as this is one thing I don’t seem to have enough of, so while I was in town a few weeks ago I popped into Superdrug to check out what they’d got. I’m already a fan of Makeup Revolution as I have a few of their eyeshadow palettes, which I absolutely love, and I’d been wanting to try a few more of their products for a while so of course I was immediately drawn to the Makeup Revelution section first. I’d decided on getting a powder palette and I’m not particularly a fan of cream blushers, or maybe I just need more practice! I was expecting to purchase one or two single blushers but this stunning Sugar and Spice colour palette caught my eye immediately as I think the pretty pink tones seem to suit my skin tone and hair colouring.

First of all I must say about the price, it was only £6 so an absolute bargain considering how many shades you get. I also love the shiny black packaging which I think looks quite chic and a lot more expensive than it actually is. It also has a large mirror which is great for travelling if you can’t be bothered to pack a separate one.
There are 8 gorgeous colours to choose from all in one palette with a mix of powder blushers. highlighters and contour colours. It has 2 neutral shades which are perfect for contouring, a pinky nude and a peachy pink which are both great for an everyday look, 2 brighter pink shades for something a little bolder plus 2 shimmery pink shades which I found were wonderful for highlighting. You also get a decent amount of product for each colour option too. There really is something for every makeup look I’d want to do.
Each colour was incredibly pigmented so I only needed to use a small amount on a brush and for the highlighter shades I found it best to use a fan brush. The colours gave a lovely creamy, satin finish and blended in really nicely. The colour lasted well and still looked good at the end of the day, which I was so happy about especially as we are going into summer and warmer weather.
So far I’ve been using more of the pinky nude colours and lighter one of the highlighters for a natural glowy look for everyday and I can’t wait to use the raspberry pink blusher again for an evening party makeup look or even just for something a bit bolder during the day.
This blusher palette really is adorable, I think it’s the best one I’ve ever owned (is it wrong to get this excited about a product?) and at this price I may well go back and get the cream blusher palette next month!

Have you got a favourite blusher palette?
