Hi you, I feel like I haven’t written for a while and have lots and lots to talk to you about. Recently Eid just went past so I’ve been busy with that and now the run up to about 6 weddings in the next two weeks has just started so I’ve been running around sorting things out for that! Such a little busy bee. Today I have a look at two products from BareMinerals for you (if you haven’t guessed from the title) which I hope you like reading about!
The first one is a new mascara, and I am sure mascaras are like buses. A few weeks ago the ones I was using were drying up and I didn’t have any back ups so I went and purchased three new mascaras. Literally over the next two or three days about four mascaras landed on my desk – how annoying! But I’m not going to complain as they are pretty darn good mascaras to be fair! The one I have for you today is the new BareMinerals Lash Domination mascara with an exclusive ‘ProTwist 180′ wand. Have a look at the pictures below.
Quite an onslaught of pictures huh? I wanted to make sure you all had a really good look at the pictures and see the before and after effect properly. The mascara promises to ‘completely curve around lashes and and coat from all angles‘ and I find it does do that as you twirl the mascara 180 degrees. The bristles are really flexible which I find help fan out the lashes and to be honest I found that the after pictures didn’t really do the mascara justice. My lashes definitely look much more fuller than before. However you can still see that in the before and after pictures there is a significant difference and I find this mascara to be the one I am reaching for most at the moment. It works really well with the lower lashes as well I find, you can really see that in the pics above. The formula is really nice as well, as it does the job but it isn’t a nuisance to take off. The wand is really nice too, easy to use and helps curl my lashes upwards. Overall I would definitely recommend this mascara for anyone wanting to try a new mascara and can see this product being really popular.
This mascara is out already, it has just come out this month and retails for £16.00. I think that is a really good price point especially as normal drugstore/high street mascaras are at times £12 a pop! You can pick it up at any BareMinerals stand or online.
The next product I have for you today is one I am especially enjoying, the BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in ‘Hot Shot‘. It’s not a true to colour lipgloss which can be a bit disappointing to someone who expects full cover, however with so many pigmented full coverage lip glosses in my collection I found it rather refreshing to have one that was sheer to medium.
This lipgloss has quickly become my go to every day gloss, it is so easy to wear and I really can see my lips looking plumper after application. The finish by itself is a pink nude which is very wearable but you know I am a bold lips kinda gal so for those bold days I pair it with NYX Slim Line Pencil in ‘Fuschia’. The applicator is really lovely too, makes the gloss easier to apply and I don’t find the gloss to be too sticky which is always a plus! The gloss has a mint/spearmint smell… I can never tell which, it just reminds me of chewing gum which I am not adverse to at all so it doesn’t bug me a bit. Overall I am loving this gloss, and think I will be splurging on more glosses from the range. I really want to try a hot pink Moxie lipstick to pair this gloss with, I feel that may be a killer combination!
You can pick this baby up for £16.00, slightly pricer than what I spend on glosses however with the amount of use I get from it I think I can justify another two, or three! This comes in 14 different shades.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post, I am planning on doing a ‘BareMinerals’ face post using mostly BareMinerals products soon however please bare with with me because I have quite a few looks to get through first! Hope you have a lovely day and let me know if you pick anything up! Lots of love, Tanzina x
