New sandals at an irresistible price

I found these sandals in the children’s (young girls) section of Newlook and couldn’t resist them (especially at just £7)!

I am not saying that they are at all similar, but they reminded me slightly of the trend of studded sandals set by the Valentino Rockstuds. It is also very rare to find black studded sandals on the highstreet and with the studs being star shaped then I just couldn’t resist!

Mascara’s of the Moment

mascaras oct 2014

I thought I would do a post on my favourite mascara’s of the moment because last week I realised that I have been happy with the way that my lashes have looked for ages and had finally settled into a collection of mascara’s that I love. My 6 favourites have a good balance between high-end and high-street!

My ultimate favourite night-out mascara is the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes. This mascara both lengthens and volumises in one stroke. This isn’t exactly cheap at around the £20 mark but it is definitely worth it. Fantastic for a night out dancing on the tiles!

Secondly is my Lancome Hypnose Stars Mascara. This is hands down the prettiest mascara packaging I have ever seen: it’s glittery! The formula is lovely and really elongates your lashes. It is not particularly volumising but makes your lashes look lusciously long!

The last ‘high-end’ mascara in my favourite is the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. This has a teeny tiny brush which is perfect for getting in to the corners of your eyes. This also lasts really well and will definitely be my must-have for any wedding!

Now on to the drugstore mascara’s.

An old favourite of mine is Maybelline’s One by One. I was addicted to this years ago and then it was discontinues but relaunched last year. The brush in this is one of the hard rubber brushes and lengthens and separates your lashes. Great for day-to-day use!

Another favourite of mine is Rimmel’s ScandalEyes Flex Mascara. This mascara has a really large brush and volumises lashes but in a nice natural way. The formula isn’t too thick so lashes don’t tend to clump together too much.

My newest drugstore discovery is L’oreal’s Volume Million Lashes So Couture. This formula lengthens the lashes fantastically and the rubber brush separates lashes.

I hope that this has given mascara inspiration to all different budgets.

Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner

I didn’t get this when it was first released because I heard completely mixed reviews about it, but I eventually picked it up from Birchbox with my points so it didn’t cost me a penny!

THIS IS THE BEST EYELINER I HAVE TRIED. The angled rubber tip makes application so easy, even for someone like me who is atrocious at applying eyeliner. Once applied, the eyeliner lasts all day without smudging or crumbling. It lasts so well that I have to use two different cleansers to remove it!

This is a product that everyone has to try! Easy to apply, long-lasting, exactly what it says on the tin!
