Isn’t it the best when you try some new products and they turn out to be AWESOME?! With so many products constantly being introduced into the cosmetic world, there is always so much to choose from. MAKE UP FOR EVER is one of our absolute favourite cosmetic lines so we were very excited to try their brand new launch of foundations and mascara. Read on to discover new products from some of our much-loved brands that were recently launched in stores..
Rimmel London Wonder’Lash Volume Colourist Mascara
I seen the ads for this newest mascara launch for Rimmel and I was intrigued to try it. This mascara is supposed to gradually darken your eyelashes within 4 weeks. Being blond this appealed to me. Natasha doesn’t much care as she doesn’t have this concern. Lucky her. My eyelashes are not completely light, but I feel they could be darker. I figured it would be awesome to not have to wear mascara on my days off. If I don’t at the very least, have any mascara on my eyes, my whole face seems to disappear. Especially my eyes. Not my favourite look. Fair haired blondes with light eyes know what I’m talking about. Even though I have been using it more as a primer under my other mascara, it does work great alone. I find it separates and lengthens more then volumizes. I have only been using it for a week and a half and I do see my lashes tinting slightly. I’m happy with that. It does help. I’m hoping to see even more change in the next couple of weeks.
Essence Cosmetics – The Gel Nail Polish
Shades pictured above from left to right:
Absolute Pure, So What?, Jeans On!, Be Awesome Tonight!, Feels Like Birthday
This is not the first time we’ve talked about Essence Gel nail polishes and probably won’t be the last. That’s just how amazing these gel nail polishes are. We could go on and on about the colour selection, how well they wear, the shine, the way it looks like a professional manicure and let’s not forget to mention the price of these babies. You can afford to purchase a dozen for the price of 1 manicure! We have purchased a lot of expensive nail polishes and have had expensive manicures and yes they are real nice, but honestly, these polishes are truly amazing. Score!
We were ecstatic when we came across these gorgeous new shades in store. ‘Be Awesome Tonight!’ (the light pink) is such a perfect shade for Summer.
This new foundation is super light weight, transfer-proof and waterproof. We haven’t actually worn it in the water, but it definitely wears extremely well all day long. Even during these HOT summer days. The consistency is very light and fluid-y (is that even a word?) and sheer but if you want more coverage it is buildable. We both really like that it is infused with pro-vitamin B5 which gives lots of hydration (but doesn’t feel heavy or oily) and improves skin elasticity (hello…the more the better!). Overall, we both really love that this foundation gives our skin a dewy finish and looks natural.
MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Water Blend Face & Body Foundation is available in 20 shades.
The Excessive Lash Mascara did not disappoint. We both have a terrible case of what might be classified as ‘mascara junky‘ x2. Good news for us is, I don’t think we’re alone in that group.
We both tend to prefer mascaras that give lots of volume and are buildable. You know that real thick look, not gawdy thick, more like voluptuous thick. We love to wear at least 2 coats of mascara. Maybe 3. We’re crazy like that. This mascara is perfect for volumizing without clumping. Big plus. The fibre fusion brush holds the perfect amount of mascara while brushing through the lashes to separate and lengthen. Bam. Beautiful. Love the way this mascara goes on.
