 I've been using this for the past couple of month after I bought it on offer at Boots for around £4.99.  I hate spending a fortune on mascara as I think they aren't worth investing and I'm a false eyelash gal at heart.  
At first I hated this mascara, it just didn't seem to do anything, but then I started to use the brush a different way and now it's my fave!
 As you can see here the brush has a slight curve.. It really helps curl the lashes and keeps them in place for hours. 
After 2-3 coats... These aren't even curled!!! It's curled just from the mascara itself :) perfect look for an easy daytime look or for work

 I've had this Montagne Jeunesse mud face mask since November and still have plenty of product left in the tube.  I paid around £6 for it in Boots which is a fantastic bargain considering the sachets are usually around £1.50-£1.99.  I use this weekly as a special treat for my face and to also get all the dirt and nasties out my pores.
It says on the tube upto 10 uses but i've used this now around 18 times and it still has plenty of product left which is a plus!
This was the only one they sold in the Boots store I went in and it says its for ultra deep pore cleansing and the description on the back reads 'invigorating real dead sea minerals, seaweed and lavender help relax, calm and soothe.  Impurities are drawn out and blocked pores are opened leaving skin ultra deep pore clean'
You are instructed to leave this on around 10-15 minutes then rinse it off with warm water and you're left with amazing, soft, freshly cleansed skin.
I think everyone should treat their skin at least once a week... I normally have a special 'pamper night' where I have a nice hot bubble bath (philosophy bubble bath mmm!), face mask, hair treatment, tint eyebrows, exfoliate whole body and face, moisturise whole body and face, nails etc.

Go on.... treat yourself :)

 It was time to treat myself to some new brow products and I liked the look of these new babies which were released in January by MAC.  I have recently seen a few youtube guru's using MACs fluidline as a waterproof eyebrow shade and looked like it would be perfect for nights out or long days wearing makeup to stay put.  Then I realised the brow collection by MAC released this fluidline especially for brows.  I decided on 'dirty blonde' as I think putting a lighter shade on your brows looks best for some strange reason and also got the matching eyeshadows which can be used as brow powder.  
The shadows in the set are Soba (gold brown with shimmer) and Omega (matte soft muted beige/taupe). 

 This is the brow fluidline, it looks very light here but it's a much darker colour in real life and looks perfect on my medium brown brows.

I had just had my brows HD'd here so they look quite thick, but I do have on the brow fluidline and Omega eyeshadow


I couldn't resist myself when I recently saw this beautiful lipstick in Tesco last week... I HAD TO BUY IT!
I've had my eye on MACs Candy Yum Yum lipstick for the past few weeks and added it to my basket ready for payday... then when I came across this lipstick I knew it had to be mine, no questions asked.

It's very similar to Candy Yum Yum by looking at swatches on google images etc. so I have saved some cash as this is pretty much half the price of the MAC version.
I'm addicted to MAC impassioned.. nothing can ever come close to that sexy pink lipstick but then I have this gorgeous new shade and it will also be another fave of mine as it's a totally different shade to impassioned as it's more neon whereas Impassioned is more watermelon pink.

I must say I'm very impressed with Maybellines new Colorsensation collection and I'd love to see more shades as theres only a few bright ones out at the moment.  The packaging is decent, the price is obviously decent and it's just a fab dupe for Candy Yum Yum (save yourself some pennies!)
