Tanya Burr Cosmetics: Selfie Lash

Tuesday, 26 September 2017

Hello Everyone,

So this is a bit of a last minute post and a surprise post because today I was lucky enough to come home to one of Tanya Burrs new products: Selfie Lash. I entered the competition, without even thinking I would win and it honestly made my day!
I just had to try out the mascara and I thought why not give your guys my first impression?

As you can see, the packaging to this mascara is beautiful. It is a lovely gold colour with black 'swirly', italic kind of font  (I don't know what it is called haha). The mascara actually feels quite heavy as opposed to cheap/plastic packaging.
I don't actually know the price but from what I see and feel, this product feels great quality.

I think the packaging is very different to any of Tanya's other ranges- but definitely in a good way.

The actual brush is a hard brush and it is quite flexible. For me, this is the perfect brush.
It makes the mascara really easy to precisely apply, avoiding any smudges across your eyelids.
There isn't much more I can say about a brush really, I guess it is down to personal preference.

Now finally here is a picture of me and the mascara. I have go the mascara on and it made my eyelashes long and separated. It only needed 2 coats and my eyelashes were pure black, long, separated and had 'volume'.

Overall, I would highly rate this mascara and it is one that I will be turning to daily and I can imagine myself repurchasing this time and time again.

I hope this review has helped you and if you buy it, let me know what you think via twitter or the comments below!

Will be back on Sunday with my skincare routine!

Revolution Palette Review: Flawless 3

Saturday, 23 September 2017

Hi everyone,

Now seeing as autumn is here, I thought it was only right to share my current favourite "autumnal" eyeshadow look.
I then realised that my favourite look wasn't just a simple look- it was the whole palette because seriously I am obsessed.
I won't lie to you, I always doubted revolution. In terms of eyeshadow I often turned to Mac or Too Faced or Urban Decay and never really considered the more affordable brands.
When I looked at this palette and saw it was only £8 I thought it was worth a try- and boy am I glad that I tried it.
The colours, the pigmentation, the packaging- basically everything- about this palette is stunning.


The Rose Gold packaging drew me to this palette, its beautiful. Although, it does get rather dirty which is a little irritating. But we can get over that, right?

Now the actual colours:

Seriously, what other colours do you need? Mattes, shimmers, highlights, its got it all.The colours go from everyday wear to a smoky eye. The whole palette is quite warm toned which really suits my skin tone.
Recently I have loved wearing "believing" in my crease and any of the shimmer shade in the middle of my eye as an everyday look. I never thought purple toned eyeshadows suited me, I always kind of thought it made me look like I had a black eye, but again I was wrong. As long as you blend well and choose the right toned colours its all good!

Revolution I am impressed. Affordable, check. Pigmented, check. Variety, check. AND I forgot to mention that there is barely any fall out. There is some colours that have more fall out but no more than palettes which you pay £40 for.
Honestly, I don't think I am going to be able to justify buying expensive eyeshadows ever again. Which is a good thing!

Let me know what you think of this palette and if you recommend any other affordable brands.
