Benefit Magnetic Mascara: First Impressions

Beauty

Heya lovelies, how are you doing? I’m feeling great ~

I went to the Trafford Centre in Manchester on Saturday to do a lil’ shopping (didn’t buy as much as I thought I would though…?) 🙂

I hardly bought any clothes (which is odd for me) and apart from one top in Zara I didn’t see much I fancied!! What I DID buy though was a little bit of make-up…

I went into Selfridges to get a Benefit bronzer as my friends got me the mini one for my 23rd birthday and it’s lasted until now (year and a half!). So I bought the larger version of that and, while I did, one of the shop assistants made me aware of a new Benefit mascara that gives great length, doesn’t clump, and really fans out your lashes!

How it works is that the formula is magnetic (apparently) and so all the mascara binds together to create great length (not sponsored haha) ❤

I was super intrigued by this concept and so I got one! And honestly guys, it’s actually amazing. I’ve never owned a mascara that wasn’t drug store bought and I don’t know why because this Benefit one is incredible!!

These pics don’t do it justice at all. I’m not one for eyelash extensions or glue on eyelashes as I find them irritating and weird on me (I’ve got big eyes so they make me look strange haha) but what I do always look for is a good mascara with great length and volume ~ this one is a perfect find for me x

Trinny London’s BFF Serum

Beauty

Heya guys, I have something a bit different today!

My mom recently ordered me some BFF serum for both my face and eyes as a gift as I’ve been looking for a tinted moisturiser/ bb cream for a while.

Usually I wear a full face of make-up with foundation and concealer but I wanted something much lighter and natural for when I’m just at home or having a relaxing day with my boyfriend~

I really don’t have bad skin in all honestly but because I’m a red head I have a very pale complexion, meaning that I get very bad dark circles. It usually gets better when I got in the sun but because of the many lockdowns I have barely been outside and my complexion has gotten so much worse.

Therefore, a light coverage which I can quickly put on without brushes under my eyes and on my face (paired with filling in my eyebrows of course as they are very light otherwise!) is something I want to start trying. I want to look more natural and fresh! Haha.

So, as I was saying my mom decided to buy me a BFF cream and eye serum from Trinny London. It’s quite pricey but when I put it on my hand the coverage looked sooo good, even though it’s only light.

It came in beautiful sliver holographic packaging (LOVE), and the product tubes themselves have lovely holographic lids that just pull off easily. From the photos I’ve added you can see that there is also a third product. The serums came with a free mixing pot which I’m excited about as I LOVE to mix my eyeshadows, foundations, blushes etc.

I’m excited to use Trinny London as I never have before! I’ll post another blog update soon with a before and after of using the products 🙂

Much love to you today,
