Top three mascaras

  Mascara is essential whether you are just starting out with makeup and want to go for a natural look or are a makeup guru and want big, bold looking lashes. Over time I have experimented with a few different brands and formulas. It's really hard to find mascara for me because for some reason I always end up looking like a racoon at the end of the day with tonnes of smudged mascara under my eyes. These three mascaras seem to work best for me though:

    The Maybelline Mega Push mascara is the most natural looking of the three. It adds lots of volume but not much length, it barely clumps and stays on for an average amount of time (for me it's about 4 hours). The Dior Blackout Waterproof is definitely a bit more on the pricy side, but it is amazing. The mascara goes on without any clumps, it lasts me all day and it makes my lashes look so much more voluminous and a bit longer. Lastly, the Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express mascara is the most bold of the three. It gives you the appearance of extremely long lashes (well at least for me) and can pull together a whole make up look. But beware the waterproof formula is exptrmely hard to wash off even with makeup wipes.

Keep in mind some of the mascaras that work for me might not work for you and if you have tried one of these, what is your opinion on it?


  1. Great post lovely, I love the mega plush, but the rocket volume express..I wanted it to work for me so bad, with all of the amazing raving reviews thay I've seen online, tbh I can't really pin point what it is that I don't like about it :-( The Dior blackout waterproof sounds lovely though.
    Keep it up xx

  2. I find the rocket express is my favourite out of the three but even that is sometimes good? Like I find once the tube is opened and exposed to air it's not as effective as the start - if that makes sense. Ive tried just the dior show one but am looking to try another of their mascaras as I loveee the size of the wands. Great post!

    1. thank you and your posts are amazing too :)

  3. I have the Mega Plush but it didn't wow me unfortunately, I didn't like how bendy the brush was! I have The Rocket unopened for when I need a new mascara, can't wait to crack into it!

  6. I agree! The shape is a bit more unique than the others and the colours and very vibrant but as cheesy as it sounds its what on the inside that counts :) and you have a great blog I just recently started following you.

  7. Maybelline is one of my favorite mascara brands. I don't think I've tried these yet, but I love the Falsies :)

Lasting Finish matte lipsticks by Kate Moss

I am absolutely in love with this lipstick. Let's start off with the fact that its super long lasting. I can actually still see it on my wrist from when I did swatches.  Like many other matte lip products it can be a bit drying, especially the dark red, but its nothing a little lip balm can't fix. Also, it is so pigmented, there is no need for more than 2 coats. It comes in loads of different shades and do not even get me started on how good these smell.
       The dark red one is shade 107. Sadly they don't have names, only numbers. It is quite hard to wear since it's a bit out of my comfort zone but I still absolutely love it and if you're in the market for a new red I highly suggest this one.       The next one is a coral in shade 32 and I think it would be amazing for summer. A little tip, if you want to go for a more natural look put some lip balm under it, then apply a little bit of the lipstick and then finish it off with another layer of lip balm. P…

It's been a while

I was looking through my computer and stumbled upon this blog that was active long ago. Looking through some of my old posts I realized how much I have changed over the years. Since my last post, I have successfully completed two years of university, made some great friends (even a boyfriend), and have learned a lot (not just about NMRs and antibiotic resistance). So here are 3 things I have learned in the past couple years:

1. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is the only way you'll grow. Through most of high school, I was very shy and only had a couple of good friends. I struggled with talking to new people and was always worried about what they thought of me. When I started university though I used it as a way of starting fresh and becoming a better version of myself. I'm not saying it's easy but it is definitely worth it.

2. Its okay to fail sometimes. First year actually wasn't too bad for me but when second year came around I spread myself too thin and di…


Nails inc. London
Feathers- Brighton

For the past while when visiting sephora and shoppers I have seen this nail polish and have been attracted to it. Let start off withe the packaging. It is so cute! On the lid there is a bird in the colours of the nail polish and white feathers in the background. Speaking of feathers how creative is that. That's what I love about nails inc they have a bunch of creative nail polishes like sprinkles and leather effects.  There were a few flaws with the nail polish but if done right they could be so nice. One thing about them is that they are really messy. Since these are just really long peices of glitter made to look like feathers they stick out at the edges a bit. It's an easy fix but it takes a bit of patience. Also I recommend that you do a base colour instead of just layering it up on your nails because like any other glitter polish some places will be more sparse than others. In the picture above I layered it on top of Essie mint candy a…
