Benefit Roller Lash Review

                                                                   Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Review.

As many of you may well know Benefit Cosmetics Have launched a brand new mascara called Roller Lash  and I was super excited about this new launch as I love Benefit Mascaras and think they are amazing. 

*please note this is the sample size from Elle magazine*

First thing to note about the mascara is the wand is curved which fits the around the lashes a lot better so every eye lash gets coated with mascara. The mascara also claims to curl your eye lashes without a use of an eye lash curler which lets face it will save you a minute or two in the mornings. 
I also like the formula of the mascara its water proof and ink black so it will stay on the lashes all day without smudging or flaking off. 
The mascara also is easier to remove than the benefit they're real  mascara which is great.
The mascara also retails for £19.50. 

*before mascara applictation*

As you can tell my eye lashes are very straight and short so without mascara you can barley tell I even have any. 

*after mascara application*

I have to say the mascara does make a difference to my lashes by giving them volume and length and the mascara also has curled my lashes and the curl holds in place all day.

I have to say this is my new favourite mascara and once my sample runs out I'm going to be purchasing the full size.

Zoeva Complete Rose Gold eye brush set

                                                            Zoeva Rose Gold Eye Brush Set. 

For ages I have been on the hunt for a set of god quality eye make up brushes and a lot of the ones I have come across did not have the brushes what I was looking for and then I stumbled upon the brand  Zoeva which so many you tubers and bloggers have raved about. So after I looked at so many reviews on the brushes I decided to go ahead and purchase them.

The brushes come in a lovely brown clutch classy clutch with rose gold detailing on the zip and also has the Zoeva brand in Rose gold aswell which I think Is perfect for storing make up brushes in while travelling so the brushes do not get damaged. 

The set contains 12 eye brushes.
   142 concealer buffer. 

315 fine liner. 

 234 luxe smokey shader.

237 detail shader.

224 luxe defined crease.

322 brow line. 

317 wing liner. 

227 luxe soft definer. 

226 smudger.

231 luxe petit crease.

230 luxe pencil.

 228 luxe crease. 

The brushes that come in the set is all you could wish for as each brush can be used for a different purpose when it comes to applying eye shadows, eye liner or even brow products. The brushes are so worth the money as they are so lovely and soft and to be honest so well made, the rose gold detailing on the brush and the rose gold ferrule makes the brushes look a lot more expensive than they are.

Real Techniques Nic's Picks Review.

                                                       Real Techniques Nic's Picks Full review.

Most people have heard of the Pixiwoo sisters Sam Chapman and Nic Haste (Chapman) who are the brains and beauty behind the Real Techniques beauty brand. The brand ranges from their amazing quality brushes and eyeshadow sets. 

Real Techniques Have came out with the amazing Nic's pics brush set which is limited edition and is available from Boots and Superdrug on 1st October. The set includes 5 brushes 3 of which are exclusive to this set. The full price for this set is £30 which is a brilliant price for the brush set, so each brush works out at £6. 

Duo Fibre Face Brush. 
This brush is perfect for applying powder foundation especially loose powder. The brush gives an even amount of powder all over the face so there is no need to worry about having that powder layer on the face and the powder wont make your foundation cake either. 

Cheek Brush, Set Exclusive. 
This brush is perfect for contouring the face it applies the right amount of colour under the cheek bones and is also really good for buffing/ blending so there wont be that line of contour. The brush can also be used to apply brush or highlight but I prefer to use it for contour. 

Angled Shadow Brush, Set Exclusive. 
This brush is perfect for applying shadow to the outer V and is also very good for blending eye shadow in the crease. this is a very multi purpose eye shadow brush as you can use it in so many ways to apply eye shadow.

Base Shadow Brush. 
This is another multi purpose brush when it comes to applying eye shadow, I love to use this to apply eye shadow and then blend it out as its really good for blending eye shadow in the crease out. 

Eyeliner Brush, Set Exclusive. 
This brush is perfect for applying gel eyeliner, as the brush is very thin and stiff so you can get that perfect line with out being all over the place and the brush allows eye liner to get right on the lash line. 

I think the Nic's pics brush set is another amazing set that Real Techniques have come up with all their brushes are amazing quality and wash well and keep their shape totally worth the money I am reconsidering buying this brush set so I have two of every brush. Once they are available in stores I really think you should go out and buy them.
