What's On My Face #6

Face - I have been keeping it simple with my base recently. I have a few products that I've been loving and I've been sticking to those for a really flawless effortless finish. I have been using the Clinique Anti-blemish foundation religiously ever since I first bought it. It's a medium coverage foundation which is buildable but still remains light. Then on top of that, on the cheeks, I've been using Clinique's Blush in the shade Bashful Blush. It's a really stunning shade, inbetween blush and a bronzer. It just looks really effortless and it's really flattering on my complexion. 

Brows - I've gone back to an old love for my brows. The HD brows kit in Foxy has the perfect ashy shade in for my brows and using an angle brush to get the perfect arch makes my brows look incredible. Over the top of that I use the Maybelline Brow Drama in Medium to keep them in place and add some needed warmth back into them. 

Eyes - I've also been keeping it fairly simple on my lids too, using one shade all over the lid for that worn in edgy smokey eye. I owned the Mac Pro longwear shadow in Make Your Mark for ages and never used it until a few months ago and ever since then I have not been able to get enough of it. It's a really deep matte brown shade with a hint of purple running through it. It makes brown eyes really stand out and look sexy/smouldering. Then I go for the extra smokey factor with liner in the water liner and a catwing liner on top. Then lashings of mascara with the new Benefit Roller Lash for extra wow and curl. 

Lips - Finally, still keeping it simple I applied a simple gloss in a browny pink shade, keeping it muted to keep the eyes doing the talking. This is the Bourjois gloss in Brun Rose. It's really pretty but without being too over powering.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - Review...

Hollllaaa, I'm back. I've had some well deserved time off and now I'm refreshed and determined to get back on it. I've been off blogging for a couple months and a lot have changed over that time, including my eye lashes. I always had the view that my eye lashes were really short and falsies were my only option but I sacked off applying them daily and have gotten back into mascaras. It's all about getting the right mascara to really give the most to your lashes. So with all that in mind I thought I'd pick up the new Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. My main need in a mascara is length so I thought this would be perfect. 
Overall, I do really like this mascara, it really gives me length and the right amount of volume too. The brush is perfect to get into those roots but without poking your eyes out. It works for both top and bottom lashes which makes it great for traveling and keeping those products down. I probably will be buying this mascara again, I do really like it. I massively prefer it over the "They're Real" mascara but I still suffer the same sort of issues as "They're Real" and that's that it smudge on my eye lids, which is annoying. However I battle this issue by just doing a coat of water proof mascara over the top which stops it from smudging. It claims that you don't need to curl your lashes when you use this, which I wouldn't agree with but I do think it holds a curl once you have curled your lashes. For the price tag, I do think there are better drugstore alternatives out there but so far, as a mascara reuser, I'm happy with this. It fulfills my mascara needs. 

Have you tried this mascara? I'd love to hear your opinion too.
