The Mascara That Will Never Let You Down

I did a post recently about a mascara I have been loving, but I decided that one of my all time favourites needs some recognition too. I've been using Thick and Fast by Soap And Glory for a while now, but I always come back to this.

Why I love it: 

This is L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black and it's amazing. It's brilliant for adding tons of volume, length and it lasts ages too. To be honest it does exactly what it says on the tin. I love the wand, and it hasn't made my eyes water once! It applies evenly and elongates lashes without making them look too clumpy. It doesn't dry out for ages either and you can build it up from a subtle day look to full on night look too. If I had to compare it to any high end mascara, I find it's almost an exact double for Diorshow. I have them both and I actually prefer this one a little more! 

It's easy to find and seems to be on offer quite a lot-I really recommend everyone tries it!

Better Than Fake Lashes-Model Co Fibre Lash

I love the way fake lashes make my eyes look, but I try not to wear them too much. I just can't deal with all the fuss. My sister got me the most amazing mascara though, and I  have a feeling I won't need to wear fakies for a long time! This is the Model Co Fibre Lash mascara and I think it's fantastic.The packaging is so pretty and professional looking, and I was sooo excited to try this out. 

How do you use it?

The instructions said to use the lash extending mascara first, and then brush the lash fibres carefully over the mascara. I find it best to leave the fibres set for about 20 seconds, and then apply another layer of mascara. The result is longer, thicker, clump-free lashes that last aaages!

I'm so so impressed with this product, especially since my eyes are irritated easily, and this hasn't hurt them at all.

NYX Butter Gloss

I love love LOVE NYX! It's such reasonably priced makeup and I can't get over the quality.

Why I love the butter glosses:

I'm sure you've all heard of them by now,  but if you haven't, all you need to know is they're creamy,  so nicely pigmented, and they dress up any makeup look in seconds. They're so true to the colour when applied, and if you have very pigmented lips like I do, you'll be so surprised at how well the colour shows up! They're perfect if you have dry lips like me (I can't wear matte lipstick most of the time-boo!)

These will run you about 6 euro but they're worth every penny considering there are some lip glosses I've gotten in the chemist that are twice the price and not half as good.
Perfect for a night out, once you buy one you'll want to try them all.

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange ♡

OAs if the name wasn't cool enough, this body set is absolutely lovely. I wasn't sure if I'd like these products so I was kind of slow to make a purchase, but there were so many good reviews that I decided to go for it.

I'm going to focus on the body butter today because it's my favourite out of the three. First of all, these products are sooo good for your skin. The body butter has anti-oxidant rich ingredients, while being moisturising and anti-aging. Also-it smells incredible! It leaves your skin feeling so soft and it looks really nice mixed with a little fake tan too.

The other products are a little perfume and a body wash, which as expected are lovely too. The perfume would be perfect for anyone who likes beachy tropical perfumes, without it being too sweet. The body wash has the same scent as the body butter, and it'll literally make your shower smell like a tropical rainforest-these things smell THAT nice! This is moisturising and anti-aging too. What more could you want from a body set?!

I got mine on Amazon and I'm so happy with it. If you're a fan of tropical scented genius body products, you will be too.
