Love, love LOVE this product. I decided to purchase this mascara as boots were currently selling it £2 off it's normal price. Recently i had grown tired of maybelline great lash as i had found the consistancy becoming increasingly watery/wet making my eyelashes droop/stick out straight! Firstly, the brush. It is huge! Allows for plenty of mascara to be applied which is what i normally want from a msacara, thick and volumized lashes. After curling, i applied a layer, waited applied another until my eyelashes were about 4/5 layers heavy. As a result, i ended up with thick and curly lashes as oppose to my normally thin and un-curly lashes! This mascara can have a tendancy to clump the more layers are applied, a problem i eliminate by combing them upwards. This mascara also claims to have a formula which encourages eyelash growth, i haven't seen any noticable growth yet but i am more then willing to persevere. Overall, a great mascara which i will definately be purchasing again in the near future!
I bought this as an alternative to my usual dream matte mousse foundation. As dream matte mousse has always given me good matte coverage i expected this to also deliver high quality foundation. In terms of price, 7.99 wasn't out of my price range but still quite expensive. Packaging was good as it came with a pump which allows you to use as little or as much as you want. Firstly, i purchased dream satin liquid in 'nude' which is the shade i tend to buy in dream matte mousse. Expecting it to be a near match, it wasn't. I found the shade to be darker and more yellow toned. Despite this, it was an adequate shade but would be tempted to buy it lighter. After moisturising, i used a sponge to apply the foundation and was pleasently suprised by how nicely it went on and how a little could go a long way. The coverage was more medium then full/thick but was delighted to find it felt very light on my skin. As oppose to a matte finish, it was more dewy. However, as the day went on, i found myself having to re-apply on my forehead as it had gone unusually oily, a problem i don't normally suffer from. Overall, i give this foundation 4/10. It gave good coverage but made my skin slightly greasy, which is my reason for down-rating.
