Review: Mascaras

I’ve been on a hunt for a perfect mascara for a while now, and so I thought I’d share with you my favourite and the ones I personally don’t recommend.

Clinique: High Impact Mascara

I love this mascara, as it creates a slightly smoky eye effect. I prefer my eyelashes to be more defined rather than trying to extend length, as they’re already quite long. This mascara by Clinique definitely helps to define eyes and I would recommend it. It’s more expensive than the other brands I’m going to talk about, but if it’s what your looking for then it is definitely worth it. Alternatively, use Maybelline’s Colossal Volume’ Express (see last review)

Rimmel: The Max Volume Flash

I don’t recommend this mascara so much, as although it created high definition, it was quite clumpy and the mascara was uneven.

Collection: Colour Lash All Day Colour Mascara

Personally, I really don’t recommend this mascara. After trying out various mascaras, I thought maybe I’d try this (much) cheaper alternative at only £1.99. Definitely not worth it! You’re really getting what you pay for. Again, it wasn’t good at creating defined eyelashes, but instead it clumped my eyelashes together so my eyes looked less defined! I guess it’s good as a temporary mascara for extending length but otherwise, I didn’t find it much good. I wouldn’t  recommend it, the following week I had to go out and buy another mascara as it just wasn’t working for me! It made me realise that you really get what you pay for with mascaras, and depending on what suits you, sometimes a more pricey mascara can be best.

Primark: Eye Can’t Go Wrong

Okay, don’t judge that I actually once bought some Primark mascara. Pretty low, but I found it better than the Collection mascara (see above. It was a waterproof mascara and on the other end of the stick, it also had a mistake correcter. I was quite impressed with how well it worked, but I wouldn’t use the mascara for everyday use as I’m not sure how good it would be for your eyes/eyelashes! It was probably cheaper than the Collection mascara! If you’re looking for a cheap mascara, perhaps for a play for school or something then I would actually recommend this.

Miss Sporty: Fabulous Lash Curved Brush

This mascara is similar to the Rimmel Mascara I reviewed, I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s quite clumpy and thick! The brush is curved which is good as extends the length outwards.

Maybelline: The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara: Smoky Eyes

Okay, this is definitely my favourite mascara at the moment. I bought this after failing miserably with the Collection mascara, and it’s great. I got the ‘Smoky Eye’ type, I know there was also a ‘Cat Eye’ one.  This mascara is so good at defining the eyes, and making eyelashes thicker without clumping. I’ll definitely buy this mascara again, I really recommend it!


The Perfect Solution to Damaged Hair

Hey guyss
Sorry I haven’t posted in so long! I’ve been so busy with school and exams 😦
Okay, so this post is about a product which is really quite amazing to be honest! I’ve not been using it for long, but my hair has felt so much smoother recently, which is one of the main features of the product. It consists of Pure Aloe Vera and Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil. I’m sure you’re all wondering what it is…
It’s 99% natural and organic, and is made to make hair healthier, but has also been found to work on skin for nourishment. I’m really impressed by the product, and the 99% natural and organic ingredients mean the product is great for your hair, and I know it won’t do my hair any harm. I think sometimes all the hair products in shops have way to many chemicals in, and our hair needs a break from it all! I even read an article in the newspaper the other day which talked about how expensive hair products actually do just as much good as cheaper ones, like supermarket branded ones.
It is suitable for all hair types, and when i say all, i mean ALL“Designed for ALL hair types, including color-treated hair, permed, rebonded, straightened, curly, wavy, straight hair, ethnic hair,”winter hair”, lackluster hair, damaged hair, slightly dry to extremely dry hair.” Told you!
Another thing that I got excited about was the volume it gave. I don’t know if it’s just the way I put it on, but I’m pretty sure my hair looks much more volume-y and vibrant after using it. I just wish I took before and after photos so i could show you the difference!
I don’t mean to sound gross but  have a rash on my hand which comes occasionally, and after using it on my hands, the skin actually feels much softer and less irritable! And when it’s natural ingredients, I know it wont harm it further.
Anyway, I think you get the point, that it has quite a few uses! Definitely something I recommend.
More information can be found at, or by emailing The small family firm, located in the Shenandoah Valley, USA, have been kind enough to send me a tub of the amazing product to do a giveaway, so be sure to look out in the next couple of days, either on my blog, or mainly at my instagram @cambridgeblogger.
If you can’t wait til then, head over to the website, drop an email, i’m sure they’ll be more than happy to help with any questions 🙂
