Get On It!

May 8, 2011

Sometimes I am super late onto beauty fads. Sometimes I am early. Either way, once I decide I like something, I get a sudden urge to tell everybody I have ever met. And what better way to get my message across to my fellow beautyholics than the interweb. I am the Beauty Pro, and if you haven’t tried any of the below products, then you should go out and buy them! Some of them may have been on the shelves for a while, but now you’ve been told- I have tried them and I am in love. So get on it!

MAKEUP

Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara

I’m going to put it out there- I have tried every single mascara ever invented, ever. And that’s a lot of mascaras. Some I have liked. Some I have hated. Some I have loved. This one I love. I am usually a fan of gel mascaras, because I know that if I cry, which is all the time, I won’t have black tears running down my face and end up with panda-eyes, as gel mascaras don’t smudge or run. This mascara is not a gel. And I don’t care.

I’m going to tell you a story. Shut up. I’m going to tell you a short story.

I had eyelash extensions on for a few months and as great as they looked, I just knew they were damaging my eyelashes. I had them taken off and as I suspected, was left with short, holey lashes that made me sad and other people think I had weird eyes. Day after day, I attempted to pack on the mascara, hoping no one would notice my lash misfortune, but I still looked like I had been in a horrible accident involving explosives and scissors. I saw an ad for this Maybelline mascara and liked the sound of ‘Falsies’ lashes! That was just what I needed. After the first use I was hooked. Big, fat, thick, dark lashes! All the confirmation I needed came when a girl at work said “Gorg! Do you have fake eyelashes on?” Happy day!

Available from Priceline and pharmacies for around $19.95

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain + Balm

Ok, I admit. I bought this product because it had a Twilight reference. But I have been pleasantly surprised with this vampire inspired lipstain. Applying it is a bit weird, as the applicator is like a pen/ permanent marker. But once you have coloured your lips in, like a kindergarten makeup artist, it leaves you with a subtle tint that looks really pretty and lasts for hours. It comes with a lipbalm on the other end so you can have glossy, coloured lips too. I’m not a huge fan of lipsticks, as they can look a bit heavy on my ‘delicate frame’, and lipglosses seem to wear off after 10 minutes, so this lipstain is a great, long-lasting alternative, with an intense colour pop!

Fave colour: Passion. A true pink that would suit most skin tones.

Available from Priceline and pharmacies for around $17.95
