Rimmel: Volume Shake mascara review

A few weeks ago I was kindly sent this Rimmel mascara to review*. When it comes to mascara's I am fussy as I have really sensitive eyes. That's why I like to use a mascara for a while before I review it on my blog. Mascara's can also change within a few weeks of use ( you shouldn't keep your mascara longer than 3 months)

The mascara is unique and first to market patented shaker system. What this means is when the mascara starts getting older and drying out more, you simply shake to refresh. You can do this as many times as you want. As the mascara does come with a shaker system it means it is heavier (compared to a regular mascara).

My Thoughts

The packaging is a dark grey with gold writing on. I personally like this as the gold makes it look a lot more expensive. The weight of this mascara doesn't bother me and I doubt it will bother many other people.

The wand is a medium sized wand, I personally don't mind these type of mascara wands. The wand creates a volumised natural lash look. Which is ideal for during the day or if you don't want your lashes to look dramatic. The wand also separates your lashes without making them clumpy. As you can see from the image above near the end of the mascara wand there is slight clumping, but that is easily wiped away.

How it looks on
The formula of this mascara is quite wet so you will need to allow a few seconds for your mascara to dry. Otherwise you can end up ruining the rest of your eye makeup.

In the picture above I have applied one coat of this mascara. I don't have the best lashes, but you can see my lashes are a lot more volumised and separated.

My Overall Opinion
I have been using this mascara for a while now and it doesn't irritate my eyes. My eyes are sensitive so if I was going to react to a mascara I would have done so by now. This mascara is a nice everyday mascara. It defines, adds slight volume to your lashes and separates them. The mascara retails for £8.99.

Have you tried this mascara before?

Max Factor: Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle foundation review

I was kindly sent these products to review
Max Factor is such an iconic brand that has been around for years. I can remember Nana using it and even my Mam. When I got the chance to try out some Max Factor makeup I was really happy (infact I screamed inside) When I opened the package I was really happy with what was inside. The Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle Touch Foundation. Both products claim to smooth the skin textures. Also, these products are advertised on TV and the models skin looks flawless. Anything that claims to make your skin look flawless and smooth I will try. As you all know I love a flawless, smooth and full coverage base.
Smooth Miracle Primer I 'secretly' hoped that this would have been one of the products in the package, as I really wanted to try it out. So when I saw this product I was thrilled. The bottom picture above is the primer using a small pump and on the right (which you can't see) it is blended out. I applied the primer all over my face and I…

W7 Powder Puff When I saw this in the box I was really excited as I've wanted to try this for a while. Also it is pink which I love as pink is my favourite colour.

Before I use this sponge I dampen it as foundation, concealer blends out better when doing so.
To create the flawless finish I bounce the sponge off my skin it also stops y…
