volume mascara


New: Revlon Lash Potion Mascara and Baby Stick

So a while ago I recieved some new Revlon products and the 2 that stood out the most was the new Revlon Lash Potion Mascara and the Baby Sticks. In the image above I have the mascara on and the Baby Stick on my lips and cheeks.

Revlon Lash Mascara: This new mascara has strengthening proteins that drench lashes with volume and the wand applicator has a triple groove which helps avoid clumping. So what did I think? I like this mascara it definitely gave volume to my very non existent lashes which is what we like and definitely what I need. It didn’t clump at all and you can add 2/3 coats to really get volume.


Baby Sticks: I was really excited to try these out as they are part of the Gucci Westman (famous make up artist) collection. They are meant for both lip and cheek and come in 3 colours. In the picture I have the one on the far right but my favourite is the middle pink shade as this stood out the most on my cheeks and lips sadly the red shade didn’t really show up at all. This products is quite nice in terms of adding a healthy glow to the cheek and making skin look like its got a glow which is what I like in a product personally its just a shame the colours don’t have more pigmentation. For the lips it has a matt effect which I really liked as well especially in the pink shade. If you looking to purchase one go for the pink one its called Pink Passion.

Hope you enjoyed my post. x

For those of you who don’t know the brand Gosh its a trendy Danish brand that hit South African shores this year. I have previously blogged about some products and I definitely can say I really like what I have tried so far. I received their latest blush and mascara last week so thought I would give them a try on my night out.


The blush has 4 colours and has a real silky velvet finish. Its not heavy at all and feels really nice on the skin and gives a pretty pop of colour. I opted for the pink shade to give my face a pretty healthy glow. Definitely a great blush for spring/summer.

The blush is called Pink Pie and has 4 unique blends of silky powder particles, Mica and a skin conditioning agent combined with the ultra fine rounded powder particles gives that smooth velvet finish.photo-74 copy 2

The Mascara is their new Boomtastic XXL Volume Mascara and I thought I would give it a try with my very subtle smokey eye so as to open up my lashes and give my sad lashes some extreme volume. The applicatior is easy to use and applies a generous amount of mascara definitely giving me some volume.photo-74 copy 3

I really like this brand and its very well priced and they have a big range of products plus skincare too. I have also tried their serum prior to applying foundation which I love and will post about that this week. The products are available in SA in selected Edgars and Redsquare shops and in the UK in Superdrug.

Hope you enjoyed my post. x
