When it comes to mascara I love it thick, black and bold!!!! This means I’m very discerning when it comes to buying the stuff as to get loads on my lashes it can’t be dry!
As you can see from the pic above (I hope!!) I do use loads of the stuff and as you can imagine I go through it on a regular basis. The problem I find thought with most budget mascara’s are they’re incredibly dry and difficult to work with. As a result I don’t get the coverage or thickness that I like!
Luckily I have found a mascara by MUA Cosmetics called Extreme Curl Mascara, that is not only cheap (£2), but also lovely and wet so you can load up your lashes as much as you want! You can choose from black or black brown.
The wand is curved to help with accuracy and nice and long (something I prefer). I also find it easy to use the tip of the wand to do corners and the bottom lashes.
The colour stays well and doesn’t clog too badly and will come off easily with makeup remover or good olds soap and water!
As this is a very wet mascara you will need a steady hand as it’s easy to smudge and get on the lid, but nothing a cotton bud can’t fix!
So if you want a bargain go online or pop to Superdrug for an MUA fix☺
Ok, so this is a quick update as I’ve just been to Superdrug and Barry M have an offer on!!!! Yay love a freebie???? Well as it’s Barry M’s 30th birthday (happy birthday Barry M) they’re doing a nail varnish give away!!! Spend £6 or more and get one of 3 nail varnishes, the choices are red, blue or pink. Typically they’re bright as you’d expect from this brand and I got the pink one, see the piccy below. I have been in love with Barry M since I was a teenager as they were the only brand doing black nail varnish at the time, over the years I’ve brought ridiculous amounts of their stuff and I’m really pleased you can now get it in most stores like Superdrug and Boots.
I treated myself to a lip gloss, £4.49, and Glitter Lashes, £4.99, to get this promotion. The Glitter Lashes are a lovely pink colour and you apply to the ends of your lashes with the brush to make them and your eyes sparkle. I’m of to see Starlight Express on Thursday so I’ll do an update of how I went with it after.
The lip gloss is gorgeous it’s a peachy brown colour and if you hold it up to the light it has glitter flecks running through it. It’s lovely and creamy on and smells chocolately and delicious! It goes on really easy and isn’t sticky and gloopy like some lip glosses and the wand is much easier to use than a brush. I’ll update tonight about how long it lasts. I absolutely love this and will definitely be buying it again!!
Update! – I’ve been wearing the lip gloss for about 4 hours now and it is lovely. I’ve had to re-apply a couple of times but not as much as I thought and I have a habit of applying a lot anyway! It’s lovely on and has a shimmery effect on the lips, if I can get a decent photo I’ll pop it on here!
The nail varnish is typical Barry M and really pink with a lovely pearlescent sheen running through, again I haven’t tried on it yet as I’ve only just bought it. I’ll do an update when I do!
Happy shopping and let me know if you get any of the nail varnishes!!!!
