I know I have been missing lately but there is just so much going on in my life. Literally I am almost having a nervous break down. I am taking a little step back and just breathing right now which includes not taking an exam on Monday but taking the 'sickness' test instead which is in the beginning of March.
I am doing well in Uni but it is crazy, you have to do well all the time and right now I just want to give up!
So when life hands you mouldy lemons you have to throw them away and find yourself fresh ones and make lemon juice!
(ignore the cheesy bit to this, but I just have too hah)
Anyway so for today I am staying home, surprise surprise... though I have to go and see the doctor. I have hurt my finger some how few days ago and it has just been swelling up really badly and now my hand is hurting like crazy. I have a hard time writing when I am studying so I am just going to see what is going on before my hand falls off. (it has happened, I read it on the Internet ._. )
Since blogging and makeup makes me happy I took couple of snaps of my makeup today and I wanted to try out a new mascara that has been sitting in my draw.
The mascara I am trying out today for the first time is the MUA Lash Boom, Volume and Length Mascara.
It retails for £3 and you can find it online here or in Superdrug stores.
I am not sure how I feel about this mascara, as you can see it did nothing to my eyelashes. It did not give me any length, just a little volume.
I thought the brush, which is supposed to be the unique aspect of this mascara is just a little weird. The ball at then end which I think is supposed to give you volume was just clumping with too much product. I felt like I only applied product with the ball, like the mascara wand was just very short. But then when I started using the whole wand the ball was just making the lashes very clumped.
However I have very straight lashes and if it is not a waterproof formula or just an amazing mascara it won't really do anything for me.
So if you have great lashes, this mascara might be fine.
I think the formula is just basic and sometimes when I just want a little definition for my lashes, I don't mind not using a waterproof mascara this is the sort of mascara I will use.
I will have to use it more since this is just the first time I am using it. So keep in mind this is just my first impression, maybe I am using it in a wrong way?
Do you have the Lash Boom mascara and what do you think of it? Please let me know :D
So as for the rest of my face I used the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation as a base, I am still trying this foundation out and so far I really like it. it is very light and a natural finish. For my pretty dark under eye circles I used the MAC Pro Longwear concealer and also on few spots where I needed extra coverage.
To warm up my face and give myself a light contour I used the Body Shop Honey Bronzer. It is the lightest color and completely matte. My blush is the FashionistA blush in London. Such a glowing peachy/pink color.
The only eyeshadow I used all over the eyelid is the L'Oreal Color Appeal Eyeshadow in Platinum Beige number 152. You can read my review on it here. I had forgotten how bright and beautiful this shade is. I just used my fingers to apply it very quickly.
I used MAC Omega eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows. I am liking using this shadow but I feel like it might be not enough ashy-toned for my eyebrows.
And then of course I tried out the MUA Lash Boom mascara and on my lips I have one of my favorite of the moment, NYX lip gloss in Beige.
Well that was that, I am back from the doctor and basically I have to go back on Monday if the swelling has not gone down, I did get some medicine but she was not really sure what is going on.. (the finger is falling off....)
Thanks for reading!
