Dark Circle Concealer: This concealer is salmon coloured and works a treat, especially with a bit of primer underneath so it sticks. I likey! Pigments: Sea Dragon – A rich emerald green colour – like a foresty rich green, very pretty. Paper Doll – A shimmery light pink […]

Mascara Mission Post 6: Asciene & Anna Sui Waterproof

Ok, so maybe it takes a lot of dedication to test 30 mascaras out, and a lot of red eye. Nevertheless, I have plodded and decided to kill two birds with one stone.. First up Asciene Gentle PV Mascara: The point of Asciene is that is it a range for sensitive skins, so this mascara, although very fibery shouldn’t irritate the eyes, or be hard to take off: The teal eye again: Now to be […]

Mascara Mission Post 5: Imju Fiberwig Mascara

Next Mascara for testing, is Imju Fiberwig. A bit of a cult item, this has been the number one seller in Japan, due its supposed lengthening and curling abilities. There are a lot of fibers in this Mascara, so a few coats is supposed to give the false lash effect (but allow 10 seconds between each coat). So I tracked one down on Ebay selling for around £10. The brush head is big, considering that […]

Mascara Mission Post 4: YSL Faux Cils!

YSL Faux Cils is one of those consistently complimented products with many, many fans. Coming in a signature flashy gold tube, it certainly makes you feel glamorous… I didn’t realise but I have four tubes in different colours: Black, Blue, Burgundy and Purple. My favorite is the blue, which really stands out and the warm burgundy: So onwards with the test. Faux Cils has a very noticable scent which I personally would describe as ‘old […]

Mascara Mission Post 2 – Shu Uemura Length & Waterproof

I first tried mascara when I was 17. I think it was Maybelline Volume Express. I loved how thick it made my lashes thick but it definately made my lashes flop like mad, and ran everywhere. This was the waterproof version too – so I gave up altogether untill one day, I went for a Shu Uemura make over. Still one of my favourite MA’s ever, Vicky at Shu Uemura, Manchester, did a quick make […]

January 2008: Mascara Mission. Post 1

Hi. My name is Miss X. And I have a confession to make. I have short, straight lashes that point to the floor. They take a good bit of elbow grease to curl and even then, it’s more of a kink. Cos I really need to pump that curler to get then facing the heavens you see…and then all that pain and hard work is lost because I cannot get them to stay upright. I’ll […]
