Mascara Vibes #VolumeShake

After receiving the new Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara*, I thought I would give it a whirl as I am on the market for a new mascara anyway. When the press release read ‘no clumps,’ I was immediately captivated and after trying it out for a few days I actually really like it! The brush is a good size with bristles that actually get into the root of the lashes, coating each lash effectively. I did find it added good length and volume, it also doesn’t flake or smudge throughout the day and is easy to remove with cleansing oil. This new launch from Rimmel features the first-to-market patented shaker system that refreshes the volumizing formula, so we can all say goodbye to mascara that dries out and looses its oomph! Now, I am not sure how well this will actually work – I feel like I’d need a month or two to see if I notice a difference however, it is definitely a welcomed addition to a mascara. I found it really easy to apply and the …

Review: Bold Metals Collection

As a lover of Pixiwoo and an owner of almost all the Real Techniques makeup brushes, it was no surprise that I would get my hands on the Bold Metals Collection as soon as I possibly could. Wow… how absolutely stunning are these!? The Bold Metal brushes are a new and permanent collection from Real Techniques, the classic collection isn’t going anywhere, don’t panic! In addition, these are luxury brushes, at a higher price point. They are exclusively available at Boots (UK) and Ulta (US). I have seen many comments about the high price point from a drug store however Nic and Sam have already explained that this is to ensure they become available to everyone around the world. If they were placed in a higher-end retailer, they wouldn’t be as widely available. Another query I have been seeing is ‘surely they get covered in finger prints?!’ I haven’t found them to be bad at all; they still shine and do not look grubby. It doesn’t bother be that they show a few prints, I don’t …

Fall Footwear Edit

Now that September is coming to a close, I assume this late summer is going to conclude, so it’s that time again- to initiate the discussion of fall footwear! As much as everyone else adores summer, I prefer autumn and so my fall favourites have been unboxed once again. My Chanel sandals have been gently stored away and the boots and loafers are back. The first shoe that is essential for fall is a boot. I love this take on a classic, the Chelsea boot in burgundy leather. These are from Jones; I purchased them two years ago for £120 however you can still get boots alike on the high street. The maroon leather was right on point then since burgundy was the colour of the season back in 2012, however I do think it is timeless for autumn and perfect paired with some slim fit denim. An ankle boot is very wearable and easy to dress up or down. The burgundy is an ideal alternative to black too. Second is the androgynous take on …
