Good morning Tuesday, how was everyone’s bank holiday weekend? Mine was, well, drunk. Is there a better way to spend a bank holiday though? I think not. It was my belated birthday celebrations actually, me and the gals painted the town red.
Today, I’m talking beauty. I’ve not done a beauty haul in like, forever! Over the past month, amongst my busy schedule, I’ve discovered some absolute must-have beauty revolutionary products and I thought I’d share them with you, because y’know I’m nice like that.
I have a random mix of products to share, but they’re all necessities from an effortless backcombing saviour to a time-saver mani. I’ve gotcha’ backs girls!
Here it is, I introduce you to a revolution in backcombing techniques! All hail Hairshark. I first found out at Hairshark on Channel 4’s brand new TV series Buy It Now a few weeks ago and knew I needed to try it for myself. This is an innovative haircare tool and the world’s first 2 in 1 backcombing design, with both negative and positively charged fins that work together to achieve maximum, long-lasting volume. This brush claims to ensure 24-hour volume, so I put it to the test! The brush is really easy to use and didn’t make my hair go all static when I was backcombing, it really creates texture to the hair. I was really impressed with the end result, not only did I have big hair, it lasted all night and didn’t fall flat. I’d really recommend this product for people with thin or flat hair!
2. MAC Eyelashes (£11.50)
I know, I know, a bit of splurge BUT these eyelashes are SO worth it. Not only are they so easy to apply, they last for ages. When I say they’re easy to apply I mean they shape to your eyelids really easily. They’re such good quality, I literally can’t fault them. I usually go for the no. 34’s, they look so natural yet have a dramatic effect once applied. I get up to 10 wears out of these babies, but I do look after them, even when I’m drunk!
3. MAC Retro Matte All Fired Up Lipstick (£17.50)
This lippie and the eyelashes were a birthday present from my girlfriends, they know me too well! Just look at this colour, how stunning? I’m a sucker for a red lipstick and do have a very large collection of different shades of reds but this one is beautiful. I always find MAC lipsticks are so heavily pigmented so the colour you see is the colour actually applied to the lips. I also think they’re really long lasting, perfect for a night out!
4. KISS Gel Fantasy Nails (£5.32)
I received an amazing package from the team at KISS last week! KISS have recently realised a fabulous new range of glue-on nails read for summer. I’ve always been a lover of KISS glue-on nails as they really help a gal in need when I’m due a new set of acrylics! The new range is stunning, my favourites are Fanciful set! I adore the glitter ombre effect. In each set, you receive 24 nails, 24 mega-adhesive tabs, pink gel glue plus a manicure stick and mini file. They’re an absolute bargain and really long lasting.
