Review: L'oreal Voluminous Mascara

Hi All!!

L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara

It's purpose:
♥ This special formula mascara is designed to make your lashes look visibly thicker, longer and yet still natural looking. It's suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers and can be easily removed with normal eye make-up remover. Just stroke it on and marvel at the way the brush fibres coat each eyelash fully and effortlessly without clumping or flaking of mascara.
♥ Up to four times more volume, without clumping
♥ The extra-volume brush deposits just the right amount of mascara for an even application that resists clumping and flaking
♥ Enriched with Ceramide-R and Panthenol, Voluminous will protect and condition your lashes, leaving them supple and soft to the touch

My Thoughts:
I have found a new masacara that I love with a passion and it is the above! I have been wanting to try this mascara out for a while after seeing a few reviews on it. I am one of those girls that likes big, thick lashes and sometimes even slightly clumpy. The thickness of the brush is perfect, it's not too big such as the Benefit Bad Gal Lash and not too thin as are some of the newer Rimmel mascaras.

In comparision to my favourite mascara's Bourjois Clubbing Mascara and Benefit Bad Gal Lash; it sits in well with them and gives me the desired look I want. I like how it is versatile and allows me to use only a little for a daytime look or pack on a serious amount for a night time/dramatic look. I will definately be purchasing this again :o)

I wanna apologise for the crappyness of my camera, you may have noticed I haven't a clue how to achieve the clarity some of you girlies are a whiz at doing so i'm very sorry!! Here is a close up of my lashes:

Look at the length of those babies:

If your like me and love thick lashes rather then thin delicate lashes, this is def a mascara you should try out! *Thumbs up*

Outfit of the Night

Hi All!!!

So it was one of our friends, Mitch's 21st birthday on the weekend and his girlfriend threw a surprise birthday party for him which was brill as well as going uptown afterwards. This was the reason why I couldn't attend the Aussie Pamper Evening event in Birmingham, which I hope whoever went to it (???) enjoyed it?!

Anyways I just thought i'd share my outfit of the night with you all, you may recognise the crop top from a recent post about my last haul fix whilst I Christmas shop? Well in all honesty I broke that ban and bought not one, but two clutches from River Island in the mid-winter sale which started instore today.... i'm sorry but who can resist? SERIOUSLY!! Hehehe!

Top: Vero Moda
Leggings: Hypnotic
Heels: Bertie

Jacket: Dolce and Gabbanna

I must resist......

Hi All!!

As of today I have officially given myself a ban or should I say a low budget on what I can purchase for myself.... but only until I have finished all of my christmas shopping! You may have guessed that I have a bit of a shopping addiction, so this ban/budget is not easy for me at all!!!!

So my last bit of haulage for the moment is a Vero Moda crop top which I found in the sale at ASOS for just £10!!! I don't own a crop top yet, I know i'm severly behind on this trend, so when I saw this one which is different to what I have seen around; I had to buy it!

If you see a post from yours truly titled 'HAUL' please slap my wrists for me :o)

Review: No7 Nail Varnish

Hi All!

No7 Speed Dry Nail Polish 'Siren'

My Thoughts:
I'm going to get straight to the point on this one; I am not impressed with this brand of nail polish at all! As a range I have always found No7 to be pretty good as I use quite a few of their products, however the nail polishes are a complete let down! This particular nail polish is not the first No7 I have used, in all I own about four of them and each one does not last. The build up of colour only takes about two coats which is good, but after drying it is very easy to chip.

Here is some photo evidence of why I would not advice anyone to buy this product...

After one day

After two days

So there you have it, I will not be buying another No7 nail polish no matter how cheap I can buy them with No7 vouchers and work discount and I wouldn't advise you to buy this either! I have spoken with the No7 consultant at my Boots store and they find the polish to be the let down of No7 as a brand... it's a shame, they should take a page out of Barry M's books :o)

Has anyone else experienced the same with this brand?

PS Enjoy? Follow me and if you have a blo, i'll follow you!
