Over the last month or so, there have been lots of new eye makeup releases and i’ve slowly been trying them all out. To save you the time and the money of working through everything yourself, here are the ones that are worth getting.
Rimmel’s new Volume Shake mascara* (£8.99 from Boots) is a really
interesting one. Its formula requires to be shaken to refresh the
volumising mascara inside. This ‘shaker system’ will help prevent the
product drying out, keep it clump free and make it as ‘fresh’ as
possible each time you use it.
The wand has
firm, tight bristles that give great volume, and the colour is a true,
intense black. I really like this mascara as it makes my long spindly
lashes looked a lot fuller and more universal. The bristles really grab
onto all of your lashes, so you can brush through easily from root to tip
and then build up as much as you want to.
M’s That’s How I Roll mascara* (£4.99 from Superdrug) is, I think, a
take on Benefit’s Roller Lash; but it’s good – it works. The wand is a
thin, curved plastic one with quite defined ‘spikes’ that comb through
your lashes to curl, lift and add length. This really gives you
fanned-out, doll-like lashes; so if that’s your bag, you need to give
this one a shot.
The final mascara that I want to introduce you to if a coloured one. The diego dalla palma Purple Volume Mascara* (£17.50 from M&S) is part of their Shades of Purple collection. It’s very pigmented and the pretty colour can be seen clearly on lashes. The wand has bristles in a ‘helter skelter formation’ and easy coats all of each of your lashes without clumping or smudging. It also has ingredients in it that help to strengthen damaged lashes, so you are getting conditioning properties too.
Onto a couple of eyeliners, you need to check out the new Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Waterproof Eyeliners* (£ each from Bobbi Brown). I have the shades Deep Blue and Rich Ivy. These are such pigmented and blendable liners; allowing you to keep your line sharp or smudge it out. The colour just glides on and stays put in even the warmest of climates.
Last, but not least, I’ve been trying out the Pixi by Petra Eye Define Waterline* (£12 from Cult Beauty) . It’s from their latest SS17 collection and has a soft, creamy extendable crayon nib that’s designed to be safe and gentle for use in your waterline. Of course though, you can use it anywhere. This does last really well, but you do need to pat your waterline dry with a tissue first to give it some skin to adhere to. It’s so black and you can create a brilliant smokey rock chick-eye with it.
Do you like the look of any of these?
