My Mascara Collection

You may have seen my post about Frugal February earlier this month, and after writing it I wanted to try and stop spending for the sake of spending for the next couple of months. It made me realise that I have a fairly large collection of products whether its shampoo, makeup, hair stuff etc. I am going to be doing a regular segment about my products until I use them up and can write about the empties and review them.

I am starting with my Mascara’s first and in this collection I own 5! Just 5 you say?! I’m sure plenty of you out there own more than that but for me this is quite excessive. Normally I have 1 or 2 on the go but this has gone crazy as I have received a freebie to try and also won a competition for one.

In my collection I own:

Maybelline Falsies

W7 Flirty Eyes

Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Holidays

Rimmel Kate

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast


My aim is to use all of these mascara’s equally over the next month or so and try and use them up. Naturally if I don’t like a product I won’t force myself to keep using it and when I post my findings I will write an honest review. All the mascara’s have completely different brushes and consistencies so it will be interesting to see what happens. I am going to try and photograph each mascara on my lashes so you can all see the results and it might urge you to go out and buy one.


Has anyone else tried out a challenge like this?

Makeup revolution: Go to Hell review

My final review of the Go! palette’s from Makeup revolution is of the Go to Hell palette and what a finale it is. This like the Go to Heaven palette features 18 eyeshadow shades all of which pop and are eye-catching.


All the shades of this palette are a lot darker and would look fab on a night out or for something special. I’m not sure I would wear them day to day as they would look a bit harsh on me at work and they would look too much. The first swatch pic is of the shades on the outer ring and the second on the inner ring.


I like all the colours on the rings and would wear them for a meal or a night out perhaps but definitely not during the day for work as it just wouldnt look quite right with my everyday makeup but for another bargain £3.99 on the makeup revolution website I am more than happy with the palette overall.

Makeup revolution: Go to Heaven review

Here we go with the penultimate review of the Go palette’s by Makeup revolution. I will be posting one more review after this one of another palette and then I will have featured all the Go palettes. This is the Go to Heaven palette review which contains 18 pretty shades all in angelic colours.


I really like this palette as all the colours are quite soft and the darker colours could be used to create a really lovely smokey eye look. I swatched all the shades and think they would suit anyone really from the pasty people like me or even the more tanned out there. Some of the shades are a blush matte colour and other have a touch of metallic to them.


So overall my verdict on this palette is really good. I’m normally not a big eyeshadow wearer but I would feel quite comfortable with wearing any of these shades. the Palette like the others is on sale on the makeup revolution website for £3.99 so another absolute bargain!

Has anyone else tried them and done a review? I’d be really interested to read them.
