Benefit’s New Blue Mascara – Would You?

The 80s are on-trend, so it's no big surprise that Benefit has launched its brilliant BADgal Bang Mascara in a new shade of Brightening Blue. If this is giving you horrible flashbacks to teenage years, then worry no more - this is actually really flattering, and makes the white of your eyes pop. This volumising mascara is brilliant anyway, and this new colour is an eye-opening shade that adds an instant POP of colour that makes your eyes look … [Read more...]

Love Your Lashes!

I LOVE mascara. It's so hard to find a good one. The Clinique Full-to-Flutter has been discontinued, and it's such a shame, as it really was the perfect mascara. But the new Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara 4D (£22) is almost there. It did smudge a wee bit, but it looks fantastic. I have been using it for a while now - it's been on counter since mid-April - in Perfect Black and it is such a deep, inky, black, it's brilliant. The super soft … [Read more...]

Lash Love with 5pm Deals

It was National Lash Day on Tuesday (Feb 19), did you know? Not quite sure what that entailed, but let's celebrate it a little late with some lash love. Who doesn't love a mascara? And maybe hate it at the same time - it can be one of the most frustrating beauty products. My current favourite is a Clinique mascara that is now discontinued, and I am at the very end of the last tube I bought on eBay. I am gutted! These are the best-selling and … [Read more...]

Smashbox NEW mascara and liner

I love a mascara, and I love an eyeliner, so trialling these two new Smashbox products has been fun - and, I'm pleased to say, they're both decent! Mascaras are hit or a miss, right? There's always some smudging involved, no matter what they say. Unless they are tubing mascaras - like Clinique's Full-to-Flutter mascara, which forms little tubes round the lashes, and water takes it off. Two great new Smashbox products. I’m becoming a … [Read more...]

Buxom’s Big Tease Mascara

BUXOM launch a new mascara next month - the Big Tease Mascara. It's officially a plumping mascara - which means volumising in beauty speak. Buxom say it's their 'most volumising, statement-making mascara yet'. That's thanks to the brush and the formula. The mascara brush is so important. In this mascara, the brush is a unique tapered, conical shape that has chisel-tipped bristles that grab and coat each and every lash from inner to outer … [Read more...]

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lash Collection

Estee Lauder is having a lash and lid obsession this autumn/winter with the launch of the Pure Color Envy Lash Collection. It's been designed to create custom lashes on demand, apparently. Do you want custom lashes? I dunno. Sometimes I think a slick of mascara is fine. But Lauder has other ideas for us, and our lashes. They are launching a brand new mascara - the Pure Color Envy Lash Multi Effects Mascara (£25.50)  - one mascara for three … [Read more...]

Clinique launch new High Impact mascara

The quest for beautiful, long, lush, curly, voluminous, thick eyelashes is real! There's a new Clinique mascara out this week which was inspired by a Latin American trend where women were using spoons to get a continuous, arched curl in their lashes! I have just spent the last 15 minutes watching videos of women curling their lashes with a spoon - and I am amazed, and a little queasy (I'm very squeamish). Wow. Where have I been? I did not know … [Read more...]

Clinique’s latest mascara and eyeliner

I always love a new mascara, and this the first one I've had drop on my desk in a while. From Clinique - who are, in my opinion, masters of mascara, it's the new Lash Power Flutter-to-Full Mascara. It's particularly special this one in that it it a multi-purpose, adaptable mascara, to suit the mood or situation with just a twist. So, it's the perfect solution for day-to-night, weekday to weekend lashes. So, you can go from fluttery natural … [Read more...]

Avon and Rimmel new mascaras

It's mascara time! Mascara must be the second beauty product I have tried the most of (behind red lipsticks!), as there always seems to be a new one launching. Recently I have been faithful to the Max Factor Masterpiece mascara that launched back in October last year. But, duty calls, so I have been trying two new mascaras - Avon's Big & False Lash Volume Mascara, and Rimmel's Super Curler Mascara. Let's look at Avon … [Read more...]
