Beauty Buys

First thing's first: I am NOT a beauty blogger. I like to try a bit of amateur nail art every so often and I think I can make my own face look acceptable on a daily basis/night out, but that's where it ends, people. However, recently I've tried a couple of different brands and I'm so impressed with the results that I must share them with you!

First up, The Body Shop's Vitamin E Eye Cream. 

I suffer with bags under my eyes. This is due to a number of reasons including stress, lack of sleep and dehydration, but I've never found a good CF under eye cream before that's actually made a difference. It's £10 for 15ml, but I bought this around Christmas and it's still going strong despite me using it every morning! I've definitely noticed a change, much less puffiness and the cream itself is really light and non greasy. Don't just take my word for it, read the reviews here.

Next up, Mally Volumizing Mascara.

Every year my grandmother buys me, my mum and my sister some make up from QVC. Usually it's a Liz Earle set (amazing) and some other surprise bits. This year those surprise bits were Mally, a brand I'd never heard of before. Finding the perfect CF mascara feels like my life's work. I am lucky to have long eyelashes and lots of them, but they are absolutely dead straight. Everything has a tendency to be too thick and clumpy or (worse) no effect at all. This mascara is AMAZING! My eyelashes look long, thick and, best of all, I don't even have to curl them. I've already been online to order another one as I'm wearing it every day.

Check out the other Mally products too. I particularly like the high shine lipstick.

And THAT is the beginning and end of my foray into beauty blogging. Phew. That was stressful.
