The new benefit mascara, they’re real! is soon to be available to buy in the UK.  I’m a really big fan of the bad gal range.  I love the eyeliner more than anything. 

the whole benefit range is absolutely fantastic but I’m going to focus on the new mascara as apose to rabbiting on about all their other fantastic products.


The packaging and presentation of the product is just as cute as all the other Benefit products.

But what so the stats say? well… straight from the benefit website…

  • 94% saw dramatic length & volume
  • 90% saw base-to-tip curl
  • 94% saw visible lift
  • 100% saw long-wearing results

I treated myself to maxfactor collosol volume not long ago and I have to say I wasn’t that impressed to I might just have to treat myself to this!!

This mascara is not yet available in the UK yet but you can email waitinglist@benefitcosmetics.com to find out when it will be!! xx

The makeup brand which is favoured by the likes of Pixie Lott has signed Nicki Minaj to become the new face of Mac makeup in one of the companies largest campaigns.

Joining the likes of Lady Gaga, the female rapper will become the face of MAC AIDS Viva Glam Initiative.  The sales from all these products will go to help fight against HIV and AIDS.  

The campaign which will be shot by David Lachapelle will also feature Ricky Martin.

Ms Minaj will also create her own shade of lippy to as to the collection which will be available to the public in a few months.  

Pixie’s chop

There comes a point in every girls life where the long hair has to go.  

The multi platinum album Turn it up saw Pixie sporting boho plates and kooky updos which quickly became iconic and hundreds of videos on YouTube teaching people how to get the look.  


 

But here she is with her new do ready for her new video and song, all about tonight.

The video is out this Friday, the song available from September 4…until then…

Lip Venom

My flat mate has this lip stain by Duwop and it is part of a Twilight series.  it’s this really deep red claiming its the closest thing to a vampire.  Not being a Twilight fan I kind of skipped this bit.

Anyway, the lip stain is amazing and I love the contrast of the deep red with my platinum hair.  One application and it lasts practically all night. 

It is quite expensive though.  You can buy it on amazon for £15 so I made do with one from Topshop which is quite good but used my flatmate’s when I could.

Anyway, so i was in Fenwicks in London on Saturday finding shoes for my Dad’s wedding and I saw it in the bargain bin for £3.50 so I bought two- one for me and one for my flat mate to replace the one I used so much of.

My bargain of the decade!

Bourjois healthy mix foundation

I went shopping with my grandma yesterday and I really needed a new foundation.  I’ve been twisting and stamping on the one I have at the moment and I finally bit the bullet and bought a new one.

It’s hard when you know a decent one is going to cost around £10 and you just don’t want to spend that. Now i’m at home for the summer and don’t need to think about buying food etc I thought I would treat myself.

I’ve only ever used a tinted moisturizer because I don’t need much else but I’ve been using No7 tinted moisturizer for a few years now and as my skin has changed a bit, I decided my foundation should too.

I settled on Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation , number 52, vanilla. Bourjois being made by Chanel it seemed a good bet.

The colour is a little bit warmer than what I thought I would go for but I didn’t want to be washed out.

It goes on pretty easily and t feels really nice almost like a primer as well.  It feels really smooth.

It’s quite light which is all I need really so if you’re looking for something heavier this is not it.
