Max Factor 'Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara'

Max Factor's newest mascara is a 2 step system that first promises to add volume & then with the top coat, add an intense glossy carbon black finish. Described by Pat McGrath as the "Wet-Lash Look", it was used at the Felder Felder SS14 underwater inspired show.
The base coat is a thickening formula containing waxes & volumising particles and is applied with the same fat brush as the 'False lash Effect' Mascara which was designed to build maximum volume.
The top coat is a thinner formula "jet-black lacquer" that adds intensity without clumping or removing any of the base volume. It is supposed to thicken the lashes, seal the mascara & add a carbon black glossy or wet-look finish. This is applied with a different design of brush on the opposite end of the mascara.

Back to Business! Video Round-up.

Hey Guys!!
Apologies for the dead air on the blog over the past couple of weeks. I'm back from my holiday to the U.S and though I had no content up here during that time, I did have pre-recorded videos scheduled for upload over on my Youtube channel during my absence. 
So here is a round up of the videos ye may have missed from my channel that were up while I was away :)

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm; First Impressions & Demo!!! (Standout)

I picked up one of the new Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms in the shade 'Standout' while in Boots recently, though I was supposed to be on a makeup buying ban until my holidays, I just had to get it as there was only one of that particular shade left... Fate!
There has been a ton of hype over these on the blogosphere over the past while. Of course the US got to enjoy them long before they arrived in Ireland as usual, which meant we had to read all the reviews and look at the beautifully painted lips online while waiting not-so-patiently. This just made the need to try them out all the more intense.
So finally it's my turn to share my 2 cents on the new formula of lippy!

Silvikrin 'Anti-Aging' Hair Care Range.

You would think think I'd be getting a bit paranoid/insulted by all the anti-aging hair products I have been sent recently, but honestly I am just enjoying them all too much! (As are my mom & sister)
These products address the results of aging to our hair like thinning, hair-loss, lose of vitality, volume and shine etc.
You definitely don't need to be over-the-hill to suffer from loss of volume or lack-lustre hair, so these babies can help young & old(er) alike!

In this new range of products from Silvikrin, you have an anti-aging hair spray, mousse & thickening lotion.
