e.l.f make up.

Since going to America a few years ago now, I found the brand of E.L.F (Eyes, Lips and Face) make up. Its lovely and not so expensive and they always have great deals going on their website, so I thought as I have loads of their products I will review them! 🙂 I will review them out of not only their categories but also 

– quality (out of 5)

– design (out of 5)

So here we go:

Perfume

 

A girl must always have perfume, whether it is for different seasons, occasions, people or just her mood there must always be a selection I believe and I myself have had quite a few so here are my top choices:

 

Paco Rabanne – Lady Million

First things first, yes it is a bloody expensive perfume but its so worth it. The smell is a sweet but musky scent, it lingers for hours and especially if you put a spritz of it in your hair it lasts for hours. The bottle is a beaut, the colour and the design definitely gives it that luxury feel which matches alongside the scent. I have gone through three since last Summer (2012) and I have not looked back at all. I think I found it when I was just looking through a magazine, so there you go promoters and markets your advertisements do work! Well done to you.

It comes in three different sizes and I usually get the medium sized one as I do use quite a bit but I just love it too much.

Definitely recommend.

  Marc Jacobs – Daisy

 

My go to perfume, the summery delicate scent which is so girly and floaty it is just wonderful. I have had this for a number of years now and I absolutely love it. This is kind of a joint 1st place, but I had to put it down to number 2 as the Lady Million perfume makes me feel special and this is one that I use on a daily basis.

The packaging is just adorable just look at it, so cute!! I think I have about 5 bottles of this and I will keep buying them until they stop (PLEASE DONT STOP MAKING IT!!) . I have tried the “pink version” with the pink, yellow and white flower. It is very similar but no where near as sweet and nice, it does have a more of a muskier smell to it, anyway back to this amazing perfume.

It’s perfect for those summer days or when its a wintery day and you wish to be reminded of the summer its the best. The only downside is as much as I love the daisy’s when carrying it in your bag, I am often leaving them behind.

Highly recommended.

Ghost – Deep Night

 

For something completly different from my first two, this perfume I believe is my first perfume in which I used to buy regularly until Daisy came along. It actually became my signature scent at one point, then I introduced it to my Nan and my Auntie and guess what they both started wearing it. As much as I love those two, I had to stop wearing it suddenly it became a family perfume. A perfume is all about being individual.

The bottle is just a classic, the sizes are great too apart from the small version which is very small.

It is a deep romantic and full of scents of a perfume, ideal for those warm cosy nights in but also date nights. I would actually buy it again as I am pretty much missing it, god I hope they still sell them!! They must do surely, it’s a classic.

Givenchy – Givenchy Ange ou Demon Le Secret

 

This particular perfume I came across in the duty free at an airport before going on holiday, when I first smelt it I was blown away by how fruity it was. PERFECT for the summer holiday I was about to go on to America. It is a very light perfume, as I said it is fruity, sweet but still with a hint of sophistication.

Many fruity perfumes often are shown to be cheap and for those who are of a younger age but this is just a lovely scent. The bottle is great, the only downside is that it won’t fit in a small bag. The price at the time 3 years ago was a bit pricey, but of course I was in a holiday mood and wanted it. I was gutted when I came back from the wonderful airport and it had smashed in the bag but hey, my clothes smelt amazing haha!

Chanel – Chance

 

I myself have never had this perfume and that is one of the reasons as to why this as number 5, but I absolutely love the smell of this. One of the biggest reasons as to why this is at number 5 is that, I kept hinting to my Mum I love this perfume and guess what she goes and does, likes it herself and buys it for herself. Hmmm…. So, I always feel a bit miffed at this perfume, because I want to have it but it’s now my Mum’s scent.

It’s luxurious  delicate but powerful. Beautiful and simple bottle which can fit anywhere, although the price can be a bit on the high side there are often many sales on this particular product. It is always my go to perfume when I am in Boots or Superdrug whenever I need a perfume lift.

Perfect.

So I thought I would go for something different for this blog, as I love my products and I love to challenge myself with different make up’s, perfumes, clothes and accessories  it is what I enjoy talking about and guess what I will keep doing that. I of course will still be doing the random blogs in which my thoughts need to be aired. My grammar and punctuation is not perfect, but I write how as I speak. So if I do not make any sense it is because I actually do not make any sense in life.

Mascara Top 5

I hardly ever not use mascara and as someone who loves make up and has far too much make up, I think it’s about time I reviewed some of my favourite mascara’s – so here we go!

Maybelline – Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara

This mascara is absolutely amazing, its so easy to put onto your eyelashes either for a just the one coat or to extenuate your eyes. It is the only mascara which has made my eyelashes so big, each time I wear this particular mascara many people ask if I am wearing false eyelashes. But nope, its just my eyelashes with this beauty of a product.

Price wise it is not too expensive and it is not too cheap either it’s just perfect. I really cannot flaw this product at all. Especially the name. Actually that’s the only downside, why does the product in my eyes have a giraffe pattern on the top and not a tiger or something like that to go with the cat theme. But seriously that is the only flaw, it lasts ages, it never clumps, it has never dried up on me and I will be forever buying this until they stop selling them.

Rimmel Volume Flash The MAX Mascara

If you want to have thick eyelashes which stand out without the falsies this is the perfect mascara for you, its thick, bold and easy to put on. It glides really well, you would only need 1 or 2 coats of this well depending on how much of a spider affect you wish to bestow on your eyes *please don’t go tarantula!*. I have had this particular mascara for a few years now and it is always my go to mascara for a night out as I cannot always afford falsies, its nice and girly, cheap and it’s always in the shops.

The only downside I feel is that because it is so thick sometimes it can become quite clumpy and gloopy in the wand, but as long as you take off the excess you should be absolutely fine. Perfect for a quick make up fix.

 

 Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara

Lash-accelerator-pack-shot

I have noticed that already I am starting up a Rimmel collection but they do amazing mascaras, I have not bought this one in a while and as I was looking through my mascaras I remembered how amazing this product is. The wand is thin compared to the previous two and therefore it gets all the tiny little eyelashes as well. The packaging is nice and bright, definitely helps when you are trying to find it in your bag!! My lashes really gain a lot of length when putting on this product. You will need to put a number of layers on to get a full affect.

The downside of this product is that I forgot about it, its a product that yes you absolutely love at the time and then another one comes along. It is only until you are rummaging around and you spot this and remember why you fell in love with it.

Rimmel Scandal’Eyes Show Off Mascara

rimmel-scandaleyes-show-off-mascara-black

Yes another Rimmel product I hear you say, I would just like to clear this up now I have loads of mascaras but it is just the case that 3/5 of my favourites are Rimmel and I don’t care they are amazing. This product is just great, look how bright it is, it’s so girly and fun. The wand shocked me when I first opened it up, I was taken a back slightly by the little well…. knob at the end haha I dont know how else to describe it, nuzzle? What a weird word! Anyway that little… okay I cant call it a knob due to the next sentence hmm, lets stick with nuzzle, anyway that little nuzzle at the end is amazing for getting into the tight corners of your eyes and the little eyelashes (see why I couldn’t use knob, naughty!). Its clean, sharp and does get through to all the little layers.

The only downside I feel is that the product gets dry very quickly, it could be my mascara or just in general I am unsure but hey that’s what I have come across.

Benefit BADgal lash mascara

benefit-bad-gal-lash-mascara

I have not had this particular product in years, but it sticks in my mind as one of the best mascaras I have had. I actually got this mascara free with a mobile phone years ago along with other Benefit products and it was the first time I came across their range and I have loved Benefit ever since. The wand is big, it’s one of the biggest that I have had and therefore it spreads the mascara over a wider range. Although it is isn’t one of the darkest mascaras you can buy on the market it pretty much does an amazing job for the colour that it is.

Again like Scandal Eyes, it didn’t take long before this product dried out which was a disappointment  I haven’t actually bought another one since as I got distracted by branching out to other products but I think I will buy this product again.

What do you think?
