False Lash Superstar Mascara – Review

I saw a TV ad on these mascaras, the ‘Xfiber’ one and I was sold – Damn you TV, selling me shit all the time! I was convinced this mascara was going to give me HUGE lashes! I was feeling slightly guilty for not repurchasing my ALL TIME FAVOURITE mascara the Maybelline Lash Sensational, but I wanted to try something new,  So I went to Superdrug to pick one up and I totally forgot which mascara it was! There were two mascaras that looked the same with different colour packaging so I ended up getting the Superstar False Lash mascara (silver packaging).

False Lash Superstar Mascara

The superstar mascara has a double end, one side is a white primer that thickens and adds volume to prepare the lashes before the second coat. The other end has the actual mascara with fibre in it to lengthen the lashes.

      
So I have been using this since I got it and it definitely makes your lashes look longer I love the primer it really gives VOLUME to the lashes and the shape of the brush helps it get into the corner of my eye to grab each hair! The mascara applies nicely over the primer and makes your lashes look long and HUGE! The only thing I don’t like about this mascara is half way through the day the lashes don’t look as lifted as they did when you apply the mascara so by the end of the day they look straight :/ which is annoying so I mentioned how I did not like it all and some people recommended I go for the Xfiber one, the one I actually saw on TV -.-!

False Lash Superstar X Fiber Mascara

So the Superstar Xfiber mascara is similar to the other mascara however, the primer is black and does the exact same thing as the white one so it gives your lashes volume and a lift. The other side of this, well as you can tell by the name has Extra fibers compared to the other mascara, you can see them on the wand in the picture, with this mascara because it’s like adding two coats I apply the fiber part mainly at the ends of the lashes and they look amazing! This one is my favourite from the two, but I wouldn’t say its my favourite mascara it looks a little clumpy, that’s mainly because of the fibers, I still prefer the Maybelline Lash Sensational, it’s literally my most favourite mascara EVER!

I got both of these from Superdrug, they were both £10.99 but L’Oreal always have some sort of offer on and if they don’t then Superdrugs will have one on, I hardly ever buy anything that’s not on offer! Why pay full price when they will almost always be on offer right?

Rate these products out of 10: (Superstar) 5/10 (Xfiber) 7/10

Would I recommend these products?: (Superstar) No (Xfiber) Yes

Would I repurchase these products: No

BeautyBay Haul & Review

Hey Guys! I am back!! welcome to my new site!!! Been trying to sort this out this month so I’ve not blogged for a while but damn it feels so good to be back and I have loads of things to share with you all!!

So, I purchased a couple of things from Beauty Bay and wanted to share my review of each product, It was a huge haul however I picked up a few GEMS and I am sooo glad I did :D.

I’m just going to get right into it the first thing I got was the Grab & go Mario Badescu Set, I forgot the actual name of the set and the sets not available on their site however you can purchase them individually or part of other sets. This set contains a rose water & aloe vera facial spray and their drying lotion.

    two are amazing! The facial spray can be used as a makeup setting spray, a toner or a just to help skin feel and look better and boy does it work! this set contained the mini travel version and I have finished it already and I’m going to be repurchasing the actual bottle next, since using it my skin looks fresh and feels smooth and hydrated. I sprayed this in my morning skin care routine, after I have done my makeup (even if I have used a setting spray already) and in my night time skincare routine, it’s brilliant! The best thing I have purchased! The spray retails for

The next product in this duo pack was the Mario Badescu drying lotion, it’s amazing I have never seen a product work so fast and so well! You simply dip a cotton bud into the bottle and take some of the pink product from the bottom and put it over each spot on your face and leave it over night, it dries the spot up, some spots need repeated treatment for 2 or 3 days but it goes right down without leaving and marks or any temptation to pop the spot (I have a REALLY bad habit of popping spots, I CAN’T HELP IT!) The product looks like this (picture above) so its clear liquid and the actual product is at the bottom so you have to keep the bottle upright,  this retails at £16 here. Definitely worth it but I would recommend to look out for the sets that have a number of the Mario Badescu products in them, I am so glad I discovered these products!! Thanks to the girls who recommended it!

Next I’m going to talk about the L.A Girl HD loose setting powder, I am looking for a setting powder that won’t patch up under my eyes, and unfortunately this was not the one! It sets my makeup fine but under my eyes it just went patchy so it’s now sitting in the drawer with all the other failed products! It’s a loose powder so you can imagine how messy it can get however if you be careful you can minimise all the crazy fall out. I was trying to find it on the beautybay website because I forgot how much it was and I can’t find it? So I’m guessing they might have got rid of it? or temporarily took it down I’m  not sure.

Top: 24Seven Bottom: Mars

I saved the best till last, these are (well was because I have currently lost it!!) one of my most favourite lipsticks and they are the Coloured Raine Matte Lipsticks these were recommended, well she raved about them so much I think she got everyone she knows to buy them, haha by PhosBeauty (check out her blog it’s amazing)! I got the shades ‘Mars’ a beautiful brown shade and ’24Seven’ a muted rose shade. These lipsticks are everything you look for in a matte lipstick!! Lightweight, great coverage, doesn’t dry your lips it’s so comfortable!, stays ALL DAY and I mean ALL DAY even after eating and drinking, obviously it wears off a little but at the end of the day it’s still there!! The shade ‘Mars is AMAZING! it’s my GO TO…well before I misplaced it, Still looking for it :(. I love these lipsticks and think everyone should get them! I got mine on sale for £8!

So that’s my mini haul/reviews done! I definitely recommend the Mario Badescu and coloured raine products! Thank you for reading my post!!
