My Makeup Wishlist

My Makeup Wishlist

I thought I would do another wish list post this week about my ultimate makeup wish list. I haven’t included anything massively expensive because I am the epitomy of Scottish/Yorkshire and hate spending money! (apologies to anyone out there who is one of those and isn’t tight with money like me!)
I have seen people raving about the Benefit Roller Lash mascara on other blogs and would love to get some for myself to try out. The other product I’ve seen lots of hype about is the New Mac Cosmetics Cinderella collection. I am only just getting into lipsticks etc so I thought this lovely pale pink would be a great start to start a Mac collection.
Have you tried any products you could recommend to me?

Forever Aloe: My Friend’s Launch Party

After seeing Forever Aloe/Living mentioned on twitter and Facebook several thousand times, one of my lovely friends told me she had decided to become part of this vastly popular company. She had planned a launch party and invited lots of girls over to fawn over the products and meet the lovely mentor that was helping her join this new and exciting business.

A typical mum, she put on an amazing spread with sweets, scones, pizzas, crisps and nuts and had a fully stocked fridge full of wine. I stuck to tea as I was driving there and back and work early the next day. First of all we started with a presentation and talk from her lovely mentor Kerry who had made a very successful business for herself and used every single product in front of her. All the products were passed round for everyone to try a dab or each thing and see what we thought of them.

My favourite products were the Aloe Vera Gelly which made my skin super smooth and also the Bee Pollen capsules which she said were a huge energy boost and gave her lots more energy day-to-day. I tried the Heat Rub as well which worked and definitely warmed up my skin but smelt a bit of vicks. I then tried a capsule of the each of the aloe vera liquids. The purer Aloe Vera was very strong and my immediate thought was I felt like I had eaten a plant!! Then I tried berry and orange flavours which were fine but very sweet and sickly.

Overall I was impressed with quite a few products and my friend has been using some of them on her son who has extremely bad eczema and it has helped clear it up. Kerry who spoke to us has become really successful from this company and now does it full-time and earns more than she did in her day job which is amazing. From a business point of view it looks like an amazing company to work for and has given me food for thought but I don’t know how completely sold I am on the products thus far. I am having a think over the next couple of weeks whether it’s something I would consider being a part of alongside my day job and will let you know.

Have any of you become part of this amazing company?

My Mascara Collection: the results

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about My Mascara Collection and how I am trying to use up all my various products etc before buying any new ones. It’s a way to clear some space in my storage and also spend less money hopefully. I wrote that I would do a post about the results of each mascara and which 1 was my current favourite to use, so here are the results. Please excuse my unruly eyebrows, they seemed to go insane as the pictures went on.

First up, the naked eye…

And lastly the Soap & Glory Thick & fast mascara…

I will admit it is quite hard to pick a favourite as they all come out quite differently. I would probably use the Maybelline or the Bourjois for a night out or meal etc. I have been using the W7 for day-to-day wear but I might start using the Soap & glory mascara instead as I love the results. Hope you have enjoyed reading this little results post.

Thanks
