A New Lip!

Beauty

//Hey guys,

How was your weekend? How did you spend it?

I spent mine (my Saturday at least) doing some quite intensive retail therapy! I took a trip up to Manchester to the Trafford Centre mall for a mooch about and quite few nice things caught my eye… 😉

Two of the things I bought were Claris Natural Lip Perfectors from the make-up department in John Lewis.




















Clarins is somewhere I have only started shopping at since October last year as I don’t really branch out with my make-up too much. I was on a flight to Cyprus and a Clarins shop assistant gave me a free test bag of items to try. One of the items that was in the bag was a lip perfector and…long story short I’ve been obsessed ever since.

The one I originally got on my flight was a clear perfector that I have been blending with my lipsticks to make a more subtle lip stick look. On Saturday I branched out and bought two pigmented perfectors and I think they look great!! One is a light red and the other a subtle pink colour – I’m wearing the red one above.

The reason I love these so much is because they have a rough sort of lip brush (poor description I’m so sorry) so that when you apply the product it gets rid of all the dry skin/imperfections on your lips making them look smooth and feel great. I also love how the colours look really natural and not over powering like lipstick often does.

In the pictures above the only make-up I have on my face is the lip perfector! And I think it looks so natural! I can NEVER wear a lipstick without a modest face of make-up, as it think it looks a bit weird? But this I think looks great :).

I also think the packaging is so chic and cute! I’m going to be buying these again in the future for sure. //

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
