Benefit Stay, Don't Stray Primer Review

Benefit 'Stay, Don't Stray' primer

I’m really loving Benefit products at the moment. You might remember I reviewed a cute little sample of the ‘Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion’ not so long ago, which I did then go on to buy because I loved it so much!
My lovely friend gave me a little sample that she managed to get her hand on, of the Benefit Stay, don’t stray primer, which came in a cute little bottle and I was really excited to try and tell you all about it.

Benefit say: 
“This dual action power primer works 360° around the eyes to make concealers and eyeshadows stay put. Concealers don’t crease, eyeshadows stay vibrant and true... you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.”

Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum Review

Jimmy Choo fragrance

I have stacks of perfumes and fragrances literally everywhere in my house, so it's about time I stopped being so greedy and started sharing them with you all! First on my list to tell you about has been a daily staple for me since my gorgeous fiance bought it for me for my birthday. Yes okay, that was in December, and I could have told you about it before now, but I've been far too busy enjoying it! So, finally, here is my review of Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum.

I am a huge fan of Jimmy Choo's first fragrance and if you haven't tried it already, you definitely will after this review!

Jimmy Choo Says
"Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum expresses an aura of strength and beauty. Glamorous in attitude, confident, intelligent and with a sense of fashion and fun, the fragrance is a modern fruity chypre with warm, rich, woody depths. It's a fragrance inspired by a modern woman - strong, empowered, beautiful, seductive and alluring with a hidden mysterious sense of confident sexuality." 

The Folly Boutique

The Folly Boutique | Hire designer jewellery

Have you ever fancied a cracking piece of designer statement jewellery to class up your average party outfits? What about an amazing piece to really make your wedding day super special? I bet there's only one thing in the way of you achieving your bling dreams, and that's the hefty price tag that most designer jewellery comes with.

If you are anything like me, a few hundred quid is a little too much to part with for some jewellery right now, even if it is beautiful. But what if I was to tell you a way that you could get your designer jewellery for just a fraction of the cost. No, I'm not joking and no, it's not imitations; it's the real thing.

Let me introduce you to The Folly Boutique!

The Folly Boutique is a unique designer jewellery store, showcasing up and coming designers fresh onto the scene. Of course, all the wonderful pieces are available to buy if you fancy splashing out, but if you can't quite afford it, you can hire yourself something stunning for a fraction of the cost! Not only is the hiring cost much cheaper, but I've got an exclusive discount code especially for my readers! Take a peek at the rest of this post and grab the code at the end!

SEVENTEEN Miracle Matte Foundation Review

Seventeen Miracle Matte Foundation

I have the most combination skin of anyone I know. My forehead can be super dry (like REALLY dry) and then I get really oily patches across my cheeks, nose and chin and no matter how hard I try, my skin is really prone to blemishes. I am constantly looking for the best foundation for combination skin. I need something with a thicker consistency and a matte finish, which is why I liked Rimmel's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse foundation. I'm not particularly brand loyal as I love trying out different things, so when I came across the SEVENTEEN Miracle Matte foundation, offering shine control and a matte satin finish, I couldn't help but swipe it from the shelf!

Without further ado, let's crack on with another foundation review.

Eye Candy False Eyelashes Review

DollfaceBlogs | Beauty Blog | Eye Candy False Eyelash review
Eye Candy false eyelashes
I love a good pair of false eyelashes. Especially if I'm going out and want to make a big impact in all those photo's people will be taking of me.. Yeah okay, that never happens, but I do always sway towards a good eye look for an evening out, and false lashes really do help bring the drama!

Alway one for a defined eye, I team my false eyelashes with a smokey eye, or just a sleek line of liquid eyeliner on the top lid.

So far, I'm not so loyal to false eyelash brands. I want to try them all so always end up picking a different pair. Sometimes I regret it, sometimes I relish in my spontaneity and flutter my lashes for all to see how good at selecting fake lashes I really am.

Back to the case in hand, these Eye Candy 50s style lashes were definitely an impulse buy, and also a spontaneous one, but you can probably tell by the fact I am reviewing them, that it was a good selection, and I was pleased with them! Here's why:

What Eye Candy says:
"Eye Candy 50's style Volumise 004 false eyelashes are designed to add sensuous volume to your eyes, providing a thicker, fuller lash appearance. Ideal for a glamorous evening look, they plump up and emphasise for sensuous and sexy lashes that are reminiscent of the chic and glamorous 1950s!"

SEVENTEEN Falsifeye Blackest Black Mascara Review

SEVENTEEN Falsifeye Blackest Black Mascara

I've not done many mascara reviews on my blog, so I thought it was time I got into it! I did review Rimmel's Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves mascara recently, and now it is the turn of SEVENTEEN's Falsifeye Blackest Black mascara.

I've been searching for a while for the best mascara, and it turns out that is quite difficult as there are so many fabulous ones around at the moment!

I really enjoyed using this mascara, so I thought I would share my views with you :)

"It's time for Oh Faux Fabulous Lashes with the SEVENTEEN Falsifeye Mascara. SEVENTEEN'S false lash effect mascara leavers lashes looking fanned, volumised and falsified in an instant!"

Montagne Jeunesse Hot Chocolate Face Mask Review

Montagne Jeunesse are probably my favourite face mask brand. They are great value for money, have a huge selection to choose from. I've previously reviewed the Apricot Scrub face mask from their range and it was an absolute dream!

So this time, I decided to review the Montagne Jeunesse Hot Chocolate face mask, which has a hint of orange, making it basically a melted Terry's chocolate orange that you can wipe all over your face! Not only that, but it's self heating. It just gets better..!

MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer Review

MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer

Eye primers are completely underrated. After all, if we are already using a moisturiser and primer under our make up, why do we need an eye primer? The answer is simple: the skin on our eyelids is much thinner than the rest of our face, and to give you the real staying power for your eye make-up, a specially formulated primer will work much better. I've been meaning to review the MUA Pro-base eye primer for such a long time, so I apologise for not getting this done sooner!

You will probably now be familiar with the MUA range for giving us good products at ridiculously low prices. When I started using this eye primer, that is definitely what I was hoping for!

Seventeen Sailor Boy Nail Polish Review

Seventeen Sailor Boy nail varnish

Regular readers of my blog will know that I'm a sucker for any kind of nail art or nail colours, you can tell by the abundance of nail posts that crop up quite regularly so I thought I'd add another one to my collection!

This time, I went for a range that I have never bought a nail colour from; SEVENTEEN by Boots.

The SEVENTEEN range has a decent range of colours, ranging from their fast finish, lasting finish and a good selection of nail effect polishes.

Recently, I've found that I've had less and less time to spend painting my nails, so I need something that's going to be pretty quick drying and not going to start smudging all over the place an hour after I've finished applying. I went for the 'Quicker, slicker colour' range and picked the 'Sailor Boy' blue.

Seventeen says 
"Single coat, high shine nail colour, touch dry in under 50 seconds."
