Ummmm best mascara ever. I had been repeatedly using Klara Magic Mascara (which I also highly recommend) but after reading a review of Chubby Lash I thought I'd give it a go and I'm completely converted. It makes my eyelashes look AMAZINGLY full and long but not clumpy. It's not waterproof which I personally prefer because I hate taking off waterproof mascara. The one literally melts off with water, which I guess isn't great for rain etc, but it makes my makeup removal x10 easier.
2. Formula Oil Absorbing Mud Mask, $8.99
I've been using this brand of mud mask for years, but I normally only would get the individual sachets (2 in a pack) and use them once in awhile for a fun girlie night, but after finding some in my bathroom that had actually expired, I think I might make it a regular routine. I definitely noticed a reduction in oil on my face the next day (my nose in particular gets ridiculously oily throughout the course of the day). I'll be using this lot up but would prefer to look for something natural and non-fragranced next time. Anyone have great suggestions?
3. Hollywood Soap Eyebrows - Pears Soap, $4.80 for pack of 3 right now at Coles
OH MY! This has been my greatest breakthrough in beauty tricks EVER. If you love full, natural brows and you've never heard of the Hollywood Soap technique you seriously need to check out this tutorial video from makeup artist, Sam Chapman. All you need is water, a bar of soap (she suggests Pears since it's clear, but I've just been using my regular goats milk soap which is white and it works just as well) and a clean spoolie. Watch the tutorial and see how much of a difference it makes, I don't even fill my brows in after most of the time, I just love the way it shapes them and they stay in place ALL DAY - better than any brow gel I've ever used.
4. Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Brown, $14.37
Honestly there's nothing overly special about this eyeliner, in fact any brown eyeliner will do, preferably waterproof. The reason for this product is to highlight my obsession with freckles. I have a few very light freckles on my face, but with makeup they're usually covered up and I'm not a very big fan of the heavily covered up makeup look. So I use a brown eyeliner pencil to add them back in and exaggerate them every time I do my makeup. It's very addictive.
