Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara | The Mascara That Actually Grows Your Lashes

I never thought a mascara would actually improve the appearance of my lashes, until a few weeks after I started using the Revlon Grow Luscious mascara I noticed that my eyelashes looked longer and fuller. Just let me explain...

I bought the Revlon mascara on a bit of a whim, not expecting it to do anything to my lashes except make them look longer and fuller after a couple of coats.
The later part of that is true. I love the look this mascara gives my lashes after I use it. Longer with a lot more volume and nicely defined with NO clumps. Hallelujah!
It also lasts well throughout the day and is easy enough to remove in the evening. 
I also love the brush head as it is very simple and basic but still coats the upper and lower lashes with ease. 
However, I have also noticed that my lashes look longer and seem more healthy after a few weeks of using this mascara. Now, I don't mean inches or even centimetres longer. In fact, I think not many people would notice anything different, but I definitely can. Even if they aren't necessarily longer by length, they just seem a lot better looking and have a bit more oomph.
 It's crazy, I know, but I do feel that this mascara has made my lashes longer and look just that bit better even without mascara. 
Aside from that, it is also a very good mascara that I love using on a daily basis and one that I will definitely continue to repurchase.

Have you ever tried the Revlon Grow Luscious mascara?

Summer Evening Makeup | Warm Eyes and Glossy Lips

 Hello everyone,
Carrying on from my Summer Evening Outfit post, I wanted to share with you a makeup look that I wore quite a bit whilst I was away. I really love the soft smokey eyes with the slightly bright pink lips as I think it is a really nice look for warm weather.

Because the weather was so warm and sunny, I didn't really wear foundation except for in the evenings where I wore a very small amount in the areas I felt like I wanted more coverage.
I took a tiny amount of the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage foundation along my t-zone as my skin had been going quite crazy with breakouts.
I then concealed my dark circles with the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer, and set everything with a small amount of the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush foundation as this adds a bit more coverage without looking or feeling heavy on the skin.
I warmed up my face using the NARS Laguna bronzer and added a pop of colour to my cheeks using the NARS Deep Throat blusher. 
For my eyes I used the Clinique All About Shadow Neutral Territory palette which is a new eyeshadow palette of mine. Unfortunately the shadows don't really have names, but I used the two light champagne shadows all over the lid as a base. I then took the warm, reddish brown shade in the crease, and to define the eye and make it a touch more smokey, I used the hazy purple/brown shade. Finally for eyeliner I took the darkest eyeshadow in the palette which is a dark brown with a hint of purple along the lower and upper lash line. 
To finish the eyes I used coatings of the Revlon Grow Luscious mascara which has become a favourite of mine. 
Lastly, to finish the makeup look, I used the Bourjois Colour Boost lip crayon in Peach on the Beach which is a gorgeous glossy, bright pink.

So that was my go-to Summer evening makeup look.
I have been loving the Clinique eyeshadow palette as all of the shades are very different and create really beautiful looks. And the Bourjois lip crayon is perfect for summer, as it is glossy and gives a pop of colour to any look.

I hope you enjoyed this post,

A Summer Evening Outfit | Checked with a Splash of Pink

Top - Mango
Skort - Topshop
Clutch - Michael Kors
Sandales - H&M
Watch - Michael Kors
Necklaces - Gold triangle was a present and the other was from a small shop in Garda

Hello everyone,
Today I wanted to share with you an outfit I wore quite a bit whilst I was away. 
I saw this skort from Topshop a while back when Sammi did an amazing outfit post. I fell in love with it and knew I had to have it and I am so glad I picked it up as it is so versatile and is very flattering when on. My black top from Mango is such a staple for me I have it in 3 colours!
I liked pairing the monochrome outfit with pink accessories to make it a touch more summery and bright. The clutch is the one is received for my birthday a couple of years ago. I love it as it just brightens up any outfit and is the perfect size for a night out. I then matched it with my lipstick which is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Pink Pong which you guys know I love. I did a post here if you want to find out more about it.

Let me know what you think of this outfit down below!
Thank you for reading,

A Picturesque Holiday | Lake Garda and Venice

Hello everyone,
After quite a long time I am finally back in the swing of blogging!
I have just got back from a holiday in Lake Garda and Venice and so I am feeling refreshed and recharged. I really wanted to share with you some of the many photos I took from the holiday as I couldn't help but fall in love with both Lake Garda and Venice!
I feel very grateful I was able to go to such beautiful parts of the world and if you are thinking about going to either place, I cannot recommend them enough for a holiday away.
Both places were very hot but at the same time amazing. I hope you enjoy the photos!

My favourite part about Venice were the very cute streets filled with Gondolas!
