L'Oreal Superstar Mascara

I'm pretty hard to please when it comes to mascara, so it takes a damn good one to have a dedicated post on my blog. I picked up L'Oreal Paris' new Superstar Mascara on one of my infamous lunch-breaks to Boots as it was on special offer and I've heard lots of good reviews! I've been using this mascara for a couple of weeks now and it's safe to say this is the best mascara I have worn in a long time.

This mascara is double ended, one end is a volumising white primer and the other end is a black mascara which lengthens and lifts lashes. This reminds me of an late L'Oreal blue mascara (I can't remember the name) they used to sell and I used to wear it all the time! They eventually stopped selling it in my local Boots, so then I moved on to the Telescopic False Lash Effect Mascara which was my holy grail. So it's safe to say you can always trust L'Oreal when it comes to mascara, they know what they're doing!

I love the brushes on both ends of the mascara, step 1 allows you to reach every single lash whereas step 2's brush is much more curvier and instantly pushes lashes up. The packaging is sleek, the brushes are great, the formula is fab and the results are the the bomb [dot] com. 

Pick up yours now from Boots for £10.99 as they have 3 for 2 on all L'Oreal makeup products!

Recent Purchases | Mini Haul

It's my birthday month and payday was last week so I have been shopping like crazy! I picked up some bits over the Bank Holiday weekend and a sneaky mascara purchase today at lunchtime. I mean I do have a triple points birthday card from Boots, so why not?!

I've been wanting the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit ever since it came out. Literally this is the most wanted product I have ever wanted! Finally got my hands on it, I ordered it from Net-a-Porter as a treat to myself as it came in such gorge packaging!

I also popped into MAC to repurchase my all time face Pro Longwear Concealer in NC30 which isn't in the picture as it's not a new thing, but I also ended up picking up another MAC lipstick but this time from the Lustre Range called Hug Me which is a lovely mauve pink. I haven't purchased or tried their Lustre lipsticks and my god they are so moisturising! There is a slight sheen to it but I will do a full post and swatches for you guys to see it properly!

Last but not least, someone recommended the new L'Oreal False Lash Superstar Mascara and I just had to go and get it. I've always loved L'Oreal's mascaras, the Telescope one was my ultimate mascara for years and I can't remember the name but there was a blue one similar to this where one side is white and the other is black. I've seen a lot of hype online about this so can't wait to try this!

Hope you had a fab day if you were back at work/school today and don't forget to leave a comment below!

Sleek | Matte Me Lip Cream | Birthday Suit

There's been a bit of a craze over matte lip creams recently hasn't there? This is quite an older product from Sleek Makeup and it's the Matte Me Matte Lip Cream in Birthday Suit. I think I picked this up back in January from Superdrug, but after watching Amelia Liana's vlog the other day I remembered my love for this crazy affordable *possible* dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lip Creams.

A lot of people steer clear from matte lip products, but I am a total convert ever since Rimmel bought out Apocalips Matte. With creamy matte products, you don't have to worry too much about those awful lip wrinkles as I like to call them, showing up as the creamy formula works some kind of magic on those lips!

Matte Me dries to a complete matte finish once applied and is pretty much touch proof and smudge proof. The staying power of this is pretty incredible for a £5 lip product. The shade Birthday Suit is a a browny mauve colour with slight pinky hues. In basic terminology, it's Kylie Jenner colour. The only downside of this is, it takes a lot of effort to remove this bad boy. It reminds me of Provocalips where you need an oil-based makeup remover to remove the product. 

What do you think about Matte Lip Creams?

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel | Redgy

If there was one nail polish brand I had to wear forever, hands down it would be Sally Hansen. I love their colours, finish, topcoats, formula, and the brush. It ticks all of the right boxes.

Today I'm wearing Redgy from their Miracle Gel range with the Miracle Gel topcoat applied on top. I once had a manicure from a Sally Hansen manicurist and she told me it's best not to use a top coat with this range so the 'miracle-ness' can work! Love this redy/coral colour, it's perfect for the Summer although it's quite a miserable day in London today.

Miracle Gel is available to purchase from Boots here for £9.99

What's in my Makeup Bag

I'm trying to decrease the number of makeup items I carry on a day to day basis, because it's gone a little out of hand. The other day I emptied out my makeup bag and pretty much found every single makeup brush I have, 10 lipsticks, 3 mascaras, 3 eyeliners, an eyebrow palette and a highlighting palette. Yes, my name is Sabi and I need help! haha.

So I've managed to decrease the amount of items I carry, I mean come on, I am not going to top up my highlighter or re-apply mascara during the day whilst I'm at work!

So what's in my makeup bag?

Makeup Bag: Zoeva
Sleek: Contour Palette (it contains a mirror, highlight, contour and blush!)
Makeup Forever: Powder
MAC: Eyelash Curler
Charlotte Tilbury: Bronzing Brush
Barry M: Bold WP Black Eyeliner
MAC: Velvet Teddy Lipstick
Rimmel: Oh My Gloss!
212 Sexy: Mini Perfume

I'd love to know what you guys carry on a daily basis.
