Primark beauty is upping it’s game lately so I thought I’d finally give it a try as I was after a new mascara anyway.
There were quite a few to pick from all being £2 each so I opted for the Amplif-Eyed ‘Definition, Volume and Lift’ mascara.
The wand is thin plastic and a pretty standard shape it’s very similar to the Revlon Dramatic Definition mascara. The formula is not really wet either like some new mascaras can be which is a positive point for me.
This mascara seperated my lashes gave them nice lift with no clumps and there was some volume after a few coats but nothing too crazy so it would be passable at school etc..
I would have preferred thicker looking lashes but hey it’s only £2 so can’t complain!
Primark beauty is cruelty free!
The latest mascara to launch from L’Oréal Paris is the Paradise Extactic (UK) or in other parts of the world it’s called the Lash Paradise mascara.
It’s believed to be a dupe of the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara as both brushes are the same shape and have metallic packaging. I have never tried Too Faced so I can’t comment further on the similarities.
This is my first experience with a L’Oréal make up product and upon first use I was very impressed with this mascara!
It claims to create intense volume, spectacular long lashes and it’s a pleasure to apply. Now whilst I can fully agree with the first two statements I don’t really see how the application experience differs to any other mascara’s I’ve tried…
The brush is quite big, has Ricinus oil and is bristles rather than having a plastic applicator. Whilst it’s great on top lashes I’m not so sure on the ease of lower lash application as it might be too large for that area and I don’t apply mascara there anyway so I haven’t tested it.
What I have noticed is the mascara is smaller than other Drugstore ones with 6.4ml in the tube. The Revlon collection of mascara’s contain 8.5ml and the No7 Velvet Lash holds 7ml.
Overall I love using this mascara, it makes my lashes look great, creates separated lashes with lots of volume and doesn’t look clumpy!
Current introductory price £8.99, full price £11.99
The Ultimate All-In-One Mascara by Revlon claims to feature five lash transforming benefits in one tube, this is instead of singularly buying one of the other mascaras they currently have on offer such as the Ultra Volume etc…
You might be wondering what the five extraordinary benefits are, well I can tell you it creates volume, length, definition, lifts the lashes and has an intense colour.
There are currently three shades to choose from which are Blackest Black, Blackened Brown and Waterproof Blackest.
The ‘Power Mini-Brush’ is the smallest mascara wand ive ever used, I thought it would be difficult to use at first but it isn’t actually that bad! The oval shaped wand makes for an easy application, the only downside for me is the mascara formula itself is quite a wet consistency (similar to the Maybelline Lash Sensational).
I definitely think the mascara delivers on what it promises but in terms of the intense colour I wouldn’t have really looked out for it had I not known it makes a difference. Yes its black but I don’t see how its any different to another black mascara…
What are your thoughts on Revlon’s new Mascara collection?
This year saw Revlon throw out their old mascara collection such as the Grow Luscious mascara in favour of five new mascaras which offer Ultra Volume, Super Length, Volume + Length Magnified, Ultra Definition and the All-In-One.
I picked up three of these beauty’s when they first came out, I purchased the All in One, Ultra Volume and Ultra Definition, whilst I have only used Ultra Volume so far due to having loads of already opened mascara’s I am very pleased with the results.
The mascaras come in three shades: Blackest Black, Blackened Brown and Waterproof Blackest.
The simple packaging is featured on all the mascaras but alter with the lid colours. If you read my review on the No7 Velvet Lash Mascara then you’ll know what volume is key for me when it comes to mascara. I don’t wear false eyelashes so I love mascaras that create big eyelashes.
The large brush boasts the ‘Revlon Lash Plumping Brush’ which has triple grooves to hold the mascara formula. I love this brush it leads to a smooth application without the dreaded clumps which some mascaras can’t avoid.
Admittedly I had never used a Revlon mascara prior this one due to some negative reviews of the old formulas but I am so pleased that they bought out this new range and I cannot wait to try the rest of the range.
- Three Shades to choose from
- Price £9.99 but often on offer
- Gorgeous voluptuous lashes
Philip Colbert the designer of Rodnik collaborated with Soap and Glory to create ‘It’s the Whole She-Bang’. The design inspired by Pop Art features all over the large bag filled with popular Soap and Glory goodies.
I managed to purchase the bag from Boots on the Star Gift other, after a lot of deliberation I finally took the plunge as I’d never actually used the brand before.
The bag includes 9 items for head to toe beauty…
What’s in the bag?
- Scrub Of Your Life
- The Righteous Butter: Sunkissed Tint Body Lotion
- Hand Food
- Heel Genius
- Peaches and Clean: Deep Cleansing Milk
- The Righteous Butter
- Thick and Fast Mascara
- Sexy Mother-Pucker: Rose and Shine
As you can see there’s a great selection of full sized products (minus the make up).
For my first real experience of Soap and Glory I am pleased with all the items minus the Sunkissed Tint but that is because I don’t use any fake tan related products.
I fell in love with the brand and cant wait to try more things in the future!
