First Impressions: Mylee Lash & Brow Tint!❤

Hi lovelies,

It seems like I haven’t blogged in ages. Life has been crazy. Every time I’ve thought about it I’ve been too tired on an evening. But here I am, back with a first impressions (not Friday but hey ho!)😂😂

I decided to give this eyelash & brow tint a go as I had run out of my usual brow tint Eylure brow tint (can get from Superdrug in the UK). I first heard about this from Steph Toms, a British YouTuber, she did a collaboration with Mylee & used this on her lashes & brows & it looked fab!!😍

Anyway, let’s jump in & see how it went for me…

Here’s my lashes & brows naturally. I have fair lashes & light brown brow hairs! I like them to be slightly darker so I got the colour dark brown to try so it would also show up well on my lashes 🙂 They also do a black which I’ll probably get for my lashes if I’m impressed.

My brows are in serious need of grooming, they get super over grown & out of shape. You can’t actually tell too much here. But they always look so much better for a tint & shape!😃

ARE YOU READY!?!?….

OH SNAP!!!! Is what I said as soon as I removed the dye to reveal lovely dark lashes & brows 😍

I’m actually in love!!!! They just look more defined & since I don’t actually wear makeup on the daily it really helps boost my confidence.

I have of course shaped my brows as well; what did I say? They definitely do look better for a tint & shape 😍 SO HAPPY!!!

I highly recommend this Mylee eyelash & brow tint especially since it was so inexpensive. This tinting kit is only £12 but I used the code myleexsteph (code still available at time of posting this) & got a further 20% off. YAAAS!! 😃 Get it while the code is still there my loves. I’ll link it all below 🙂

F.Y.I you have LOADS of applications in this kit; it’s definitely going to last me a while. I’m going to see how long this lasts, it claims to last up to 6 weeks which is awesome!!😃

What do you think? have you ever used anything from this brand?🙂

First Impressions Friday: S&G What A Peeling Face Mask ♡

Hi beauties,

Since its Friday I thought I would bring you a first impressions. Something I’m going to be doing each week 🙂 Aiming for my posts to be every Monday, Wednesday & Friday, for anyone who wondered!❤

I have used a couple of the other Soap & Glory sheet masks, if you’d like a review of those let me know 🙂

Anyway, I got this What a Peeling Mask free when I spent so much on Soap & Glory products!🙂 This mask is very straight forward to use… it’s basically a tacky bright pink mask that you smear all over your face, there was a little spatula included which I used to spread the product on my face. This was easy enough to do but as it doesn’t reseal I wanted to use it all up so piled it all on. This was fine but made the waiting time about 40 minutes rather than the 25 minutes they suggest for the mask to set in order for it to be peeled off the face.

I thought that the product was a sample at first but after having a look online it seems this is the full size product! Above is how they come packaged. You get 2 pots of mask which would do your face twice. The only downside to this product is the packaging, I would prefer the pots to be resealable! So next I’ll either get a different pot & put the rest in for another use, as I did waste half of it by loading it all on at once. Or get a friend or my partner to try it too! 🙂

Below is an image of when I’ve just applied the mask. You can see it’s glistening as it’s wet. It goes matte once dried.

You can definitely tell the mask has dried as your face feels super stiff & tight! I love peeling these masks off it’s super satisfying, it does hurt a bit where there’s peach fuzz hairs on your face but grin & bare it & you’ll be fine. Haha!

Once I had peeled it all off I was surprised that my face wasn’t bright red, it actually looked really nice. It felt so much smoother too like the impurities had actually been pulled from my pores! Yaaay!!

I always thought these sort of masks were gimiky but it seems once again, Soap & Glory have done it. This mask is fab, yes I have only tried it once, but usually if my skin is going to react it’ll do it straight away. I’ve never once had a reaction or broke out using soap & glory products, which is why I keep trying more & more!😍

Overall, I would definitely recommend this product as it does what it says! Like I say the only downside is the packaging but if the product is good then I suppose we can let them off! For a first impression I am definitely very pleased.

First Impression Friday

First Impression Friday: Ardell Demi Wispies ❤

Hi beauties. 🌞

After hearing so many good things about these Ardell ‘Demi Wispie’ lashes I purchased a pair. That was about a year ago. They’ve been sat in my makeup draw waiting to be used, & finally I decided it was time.

CUE A FIRST IMPRESSION FRIDAY!!!

image

I started off by applying some of the lash glue, already provided, to the band of the lashes (pictured below!!!).

I waited a few minutes for the glue to go tacky, then using my tweezers (they’re easier and smaller than using fingers!) I maneuvered the lashes so they sat on my lash line. Trying to get them as close to the lashes as I could without sticking the falsies to my real lashes.

image

Once you’ve got the hang of it, its not too hard, but I’m not kidding you,  I probably spent about 20 minutes fiddling with the first pair trying to find the best and easiest way to get them on.

image

However, once you get the first of the lashes on you can see an instant & dramatic difference. For someone who has quite long lashes naturally I wasn’t expecting too much. I would definitely repurchase!!
But as you can see from the picture above they really do make a difference!!

image

I really do see why everyone loves these lashes so much. They are just like real lashes, in how they feel and look. They are so high quality, I can see them lasting a good few wears! 🙂

It’s safe to say I won’t leave my lashes at the bottom of my makeup draw anymore!!

Have you tried these or any other false lashes? What did you think? ❤

Lots of Love Natasha

First Impression Friday

First Impression Friday (on saturday!) ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

I was meant to get this up yesterday but was soooo busy.. so here it is today, my First Impressions on the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed!:)

What Soap & Glory claim

• 1-MINUTE HOT PORECLEAR™ TECHNOLOGY – a fast-acting, smoothing and polishing blend of micropumice, salicylic acid and hot clay, which activates with water contact
• GLYCERIN – to help skin feel soft and supple
• unique COLOUR-CHANGING TECHNOLOGY – (blue indicates when it’s activated)
• PLUS surface-polishing micro beads
• use weekly on areas susceptible to blackhead build-up
• strategically formulated for oily/combination skin

What I thought

In Boots it retails for £11.50 and for that price you can’t really say no to trying it.
I first heard about this product from The Makeup Chair on YouTube (definitely check out her channel!!). I always go by her recommendations as she always trials products thoroughly before! 🙂

Although this is only a first impression I really loved the results. My skin felt lovely & soft. Also, I have some blackheads on my nose, they seemed to be reduced.

When you first apply this its a creamy coloured product, with a cream like texture and micro beads for exfoliation. Once you start rubbing it into the face it turns a blue colour. This means the hot poreclear technology has been activated. To be honest you can tell it’s working as your face feels warmer. It does feel strange for a minute or so.

image

You leave it on for about 3 minutes, it makes your face a bit stiff but is tacky to tough. After the time was up I just washed it off using a muslin cloth & patted my face dry with a towel.

Overall I really loved this product after just one use, I’ll definitely keep you updated on how I get on with it.

Have you tried this product? 🙂

Lots of Love Natasha
