I was so excited when Lowana Hernandez from Younique offered to send me the Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara to try. My patience was really tested as I waited 2 days before I could open it and have a peek. The reason for this being, as I was doing a review and a demonstration, I wanted to share everything with you … from the very beginning as I unpacked the parcel. You can watch my video on the Younique 3D Fiber Lash here.
If you like having full and long eyelashes, but do not feel like wearing falsies, then you should try this mascara. I always have this terrifying thought of the lashes becoming loose at the end and sticking up. Unfortunately this is a true experience. Luckily I had my friend Viv at my side to inform me of this 😳 This mascara instantly gives me more lashes 😃Continue reading and see for yourself.
I have been noticing the products from Goodskin Labs in Douglas (probably because most of them are pink 🙈), but I have never gotten around to trying them. Until, I visited my friend Petra in Cologne, who was trying out the Pore-365. Since I have huge pores, I thought I would give it a try, especially since they have miniatures on sale. At that time, the Circleplex-2 just came onto the shelves in Douglas. To promote this eye cream, it was offered with a True Hydration sample. Naturally, I had to get this as well:-) I have been using these products for over 5 weeks now and will be sharing my view in this post. So, continue reading if you want my take on it.
Maybelline the Nudes Palette
Factors that lead me to actually purchase an eyeshadow palette would be, the awesome colours of course, the saleslady did such a great job in the shop (sometimes I even just like one colour….sigh), the size is perfect for travelling, there is a hype about it and oh, did I mention packaging?!? The Nudes eyeshadow palette from Maybelline was foremost because of the hype.
After the palette was released it was sold out instantly for a long time. Not only was that the reason for me not doing a review, but somehow I could not get used to the colors. Really weird. Usually I am a NC44 and it seemed the colors had a more pink undertone and were to ashy for me. But, i was not going to let this one get away from me that easily. After experimenting, I found my current everyday favourites. The eyeshadows are so versatile, I am using them all over my face and it is great for day and night looks. In this post I show you how to use The Nudes eyeshadow palette for more than just eyeshadow, which makes it perfect for traveling. I went away for the weekend and forced myself to take as little with as possible so that everything would fit into one make up bag
If you ask any of my friends, I am known to never exit a shop without trying a perfume. I find this the perfect opportunity to whizz on a few drops and see how it develops later on. It could be one that has just entered the market or one that has been around but I have never gotten around to try it. Finding a “new” perfume is an ongoing task. Today, I thought I would introduce my favourite summer fragrances. Perhaps I can entice you to try one…..
