I’m so fussy when it comes to mascaras, I can never find one that I truly love or even find one that works for me. Usually every mascara I try makes my non existent lashes look short and stumpy, with the occasionally horror spider lashes.
So I decided to treat myself on a whim really, so I purchased the YSL False Lash Effect Mascara £24.99YSL False Lash Effect Mascara £24.99 – the most bloody expensive mascara I’ve ever bought. But oh my do I regret buying this, not because of the fact I hate it but because of the complete opposite – I absolutely adore this mascara which sucks because now I have to fork out basically £25 whenever it runs out.
I love the packaging of this with it being smooth and gold, it just looks so fancy and expensive – which is good because ya know it bloody is. The formula of this is pretty wet, but not so wet that it becomes a nucience and every time you blink you get serious smudgy panda eyes. You just have to make sure that you’re eyes have dried a little before looking up so you don’t ruin your shadow.
Can’t mess up that blending now can we.
I’ve had this YSL False Lash Effect Mascara now for around 3 months and I basically use it everyday and it’s no where near drying up at all so I feel like it’s one of those mascaras that lasts for ages, which is great considering the price. How many times can I mention the price?
Overall I love, love, love this mascara. It makes my lashes look so long and fluttery like it’s actually amazing considering my lashes normally look horrific.
It’s been a while hasn’t it?
I feel like I’m taking so many breaks at the minute but sometimes it’s just what you need, ya know? I’ve had to much going on in my life that I’ve barely had time to breath with all the stressing I’ve been doing, never mind actually sit down to write a blog post.
But here I am, sat here about to write about everything that’s happened to me – or at least part of it. I’m all for sharing stuff especially on my own little place on the internet but there’s some things that’s just not to be shared.
Well where do I start? I’ve got a new job, a family member died, I left my boyfriend of six years and moved out of the house we lived in together.
Basically my life did a whole 360 and if you even mentioned to me half the stuff I’ve done in the past months I would of laughed in your face.
I’ve gotten my first tattoo, stopped being the person that says they’re going to do something then not do it. I’m doing it now. If I say I’m doing it, I’m going to do it.
Life’s too short to be unhappy.
I’ve decided that I need to start being more selfish and doing things for me, because I want to do it. Yeah it might hurt some people along the way but that’s life isn’t it?
I will admit that moving out on your own is super hard though, especially in these circumstances. But ya know what? I’m doing it and I’m proud of myself for it.
But yeah, basically that’s it.
If any of you reading this is my friend or see me in real life, please give me a cuddle and be supportive.
I’ve just got to much shit going on at once that it’s hard and I need my friends.
I think everyone has some sort of dream don’t they? Whether it’s winning the lottery, marrying the ‘one’ or just getting a pet.
I always remember when I was a little girl wanting to be either a gymnast or ballerina but as soon as I knew those dreams was out the window I never really had a career dream. I always just imagined myself working in a office monday-friday in some sort of way and using the phone which weirdly is what I am doing now in my new job – so yay for that bit coming true!
But sometimes I have different dreams about travelling, having a celebrity fancy the pants off me, finding out spider-man is real and New York has just been keeping it a secret all these years and the real life Peter Parker falls in love with me in when I visit the Big Apple. Is the last one too weird? I like it.
I plan on making my dreams come true, well the ones I can. Such as travelling the world, doing the splits, being able to do somersaults, speaking a different language. Basically my dreams all seem to be around changing me and my current life but I want to explore, see the world, meet new people and try new foods.
I would love the chance to be able to speak to people in their native language, show off by doing a back flip or something. Don’t get me wrong I would love the ultimate family life one day marrying someone, having babies, the whole white picket fence life but I’ll think about that more after I’ve travelled.
I know that I’ve already done a whole review on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade but that was around two years ago so I think it’s time for a new one, mainly because if I remember correctly I absolutely hated it back then.
I have fallen head over heels in love with the dipbrow, I honestly don’t really know how I have ever been able to do my brows without it. I was in love with my old one which has sadly been completely used up after two years but I mean that’s saying how good this is with the fact it’s lasted me two, TWO whole years before I had to repurchase it.
My old one was pretty dry and was annoying to use because I had to wet my brush before using it but neither less I loved it and now with my new one, oh my. It’s amazing, I completely forgot what it was originally meant to be like with it being silky and easy to apply with you only needing a little bit to do a whole brow or both.
I just love the handy little pot it comes in which looks sleek and is small enough that makes it easy to transport to how it makes your brows look full and defined. I honestly just can’t get enough of this product and I know in another two years when this bad boy runs out I’ll be buying another.
On my recent trip to Berlin I ended up getting distracted by all of the makeup – shocker. But I ended up picking up this Douglas Mascara and Eyeliner duo which I think is great for the fact it saves up room in your makeup bag when you’re travelling, no more separate mascaras and eyeliners.
The main thing that made me buy this apart from the price – uh €7 is a bargain – is the fact when I looked at the eyeliner nib it was nice and thin, the kind of thin that made me fall in love with The Balms Schwing eyeliner. Plus the packaging of this is absolutely gorgeous so I love that too, it’s very Spring/Summer with the pale pink and blue design. It’s also very girly which I love.
I do tend to get mixed up with which end is which because even though they are labelled up pretty well so you can tell I’m not extremely lazy and end up forgetting to read them. No surprise there.
The eyeliner on this is amazing, and I mean amazing. It makes the most prefect flick and creates a thin line on your lid, you can even make it thicker really easily which is great. I feel like since I’ve been using this my eyeliner has gone back to being fleeky which makes me so happy, I’ve missed having fleeky eyeliner especially since my makeup skills have became almost non existent.
The only bad thing about this product is the mascara, I just don’t like it and I can’t get on with it. It doesn’t coat my upper lashes well and makes them kind of look non existent, they just add a bit of colour to them. But on that note this mascara is great for your lower lashes with the wand being quite thin and small.
