Flormar triple action mascara review

The endless search for the perfect mascara wand continues and Flormar have come up with this invention where you twist the lid of the mascara to change the brush shape and add length, volume and curl to your lashes. 

Everyone has a favourite wand they prefer to make their lashes pop and flutter. I personally like a wand with volume and a tapered end to catch the smaller lashes at the inner corners of the eye. I haven’t really warmed to the plastic type wands as they don’t seem to coat all of my lashes and as I don’t tend to wear false lashes I really want what I do have to look thicker and not necessarily longer. I prefer volume over length. 

So, I gave this mascara a whirl and I’m not a convert. It has a plastic wand where as I prefer the bristles. I only wish they had brought this out with more of a brush like wand, it would probably be my favourite then. The idea behind the twisting mechanism is good,3 mascaras in one. With that in mind I will continue using it but with a disposable mascara wand instead. 

If you like a plastic wand then this is for you.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Review 

You’ve all heard of it and some of you probably use it but I’ve only just tried out the popular Double wear light. The traditional No.1 best selling Estée Lauder foundation Double Wear is nearly iconic at this stage but quite heavy so the lighter version is perfect for warmer weather and for people who like a lighter finish foundation. I got samples of the foundation and have been trying them out on myself and some clients. 

The first impression I had was that it is a medium coverage finish and if a client has blemishes or skin discolouration you still need concealer. 

Also if can be quite cakey on dry skin and also not so good for more mature skins as it emphasised lines and wrinkles. 

I did find it good with people who have normal/oily skin but would definitely set with powder and a setting spray. 

I estimate about a 4-6 hr lasting time, after this time a touch up would be required around nose,mouth or oily areas. 

No allergies were flared up whilst wearing the Estée Lauder Double Wear Light. 

Application was smooth and creamy and easy to blend. 

Colours I tried were 2,3 and 4. 

4 being suitable for my fake tan days! 

What Estée Lauder claims 

Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup: Sheer-to-medium coverage. Natural finish. SPF10 protection. Up to 15-hours wear. Long-wear makeup is now lightweight makeup. Fresh, natural, comfortable. Goes on sheer, leaves skin free to breathe all day. Controls oil, resists smudging and won’t “melt” off through heat and humidity. For a look that stays vibrant and fresh whether it’s a workday, a workout or a weekend. It’s makeup that keeps up. Oil-free. Photo-friendly. Fragrance-free. Non-acnegenic. Dermatologist-tested.

Overall my conclusion: 

I see where the hype generates from and it is a good addition to any make up kit especially for Estée Lauder fans who will not use anything else, it gives a medium coverage without looking too harsh for day time and it’s colour range is good. Not a strong perfumed product. And wears well especially when set with powder or finishing sprays. Blends better without primer being used and matches up well with fake tan users.

Lottie London Soap Star Solid Brush Cleaner Review 

Clean make up brushes are an absolute must with me and so I was delighted to receive this brush cleaner to try. 

So today I washed a few brushes I used on Saturday. I’m used to the Blank Canvas solid soap brush cleaner and even though this cleaner is smaller it packs a powerful punch. 

Almost instantly the foundation was lifting from my brushes and the process was quick. 

There isn’t a noticeable scent from the brush cleaner which is brilliant as I’m weary of perfumed products especially on eye brushes. 

The only downfall for me is that it’s only recommended for synthetic brushes.
