NYC Lip Stain in Forever Freesia

Hey everyone!

Thought I'd show you this lipstain I picked up the other day from NYC at Superdrug. It was about £3 which makes it much cheaper than many of the other lipstains around

I actually really do like this lipstain. It's long wearing (I don't know about 16 hours though...) it's really reasonable and I thought it showed up much stronger than one I have by Revlon

I find that it's not that drying but then it's not very moisturising either so I usually put on a bit of Vaseline. However I really do like the matte effect that these lipstains have. They also come in quite a few colours and they're available in store at Superdrug.

What's your favourite lipstain?

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Luminizer Mascara

Hey everyone! 

Back with a review for you today of the L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Luminizer Mascara in Blue Eyes. The idea behind this mascara is to 'boost your eyes according to their colour'. They have a green mascara for green eyes, a blue for blue eyes and a purple for hazel eyes. 

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Luminizer Mascara - £11.29

What I love about this mascara is the fact that the blue is quite subtle. In reality it's just a black mascara which can look slightly blue in some lights. But what does it look like on?

I love this mascara! It can hold a curl, give volume and length and as you can see in the photos it does have a slightly blue tinge to it. The way I apply it is to give it a few coats and let it dry, then close my eye sweep the brush on the top of my lashes which adds a lot more volume

The only problem with this mascara is the price, at over £11 its quite pricey but as always I bought this off ebay for just over £4 here. I've had some comments in the past from people worried about buying fakes off ebay, but this really isn't so much as an issue for drugstore make up. A lot of the time it's sold by wholesalers which means they can sell it for a much lower price than shops such as Boots and Superdrug, which have huuuuge overheads to cover (think how much it costs to rent a shop and pay all the staff!)

Have you tried this mascara yet?
