MAC Upward Lash Mascara review

Ah, mascara. Who doesn't love mascara? Choosing a good one is important if you are looking to pull a look together nicely, so today we're going to be looking at one by a rather popular makeup brand (understatement of the century) to help you choose the best for you.

The MAC Upward Lash Mascara is a product that claims to provide volume, length and curl. It is also designed to be smudge-proof, flake-proof, fragrance free and safe for contact wearers.

The brush is small, but don't be fooled. The centre of the brush is hollow which enables it to hold a lot of product within it to coat the lashes evenly.

It comes packaged in the style of MAC's ever famous lipstick range, so it looks like an amazing, giant-sized lipstick! Now if only MAC could get onto that as well...

Lord and Berry 20100 Maxi Matte Crayon Lipstick review

Hey guys! So, I've been away from the blog for a little while, but I am now finally back! Coming back also means that I had to bring a review of something exciting to make up for it, so that's exactly what I'm posting today.

The Lord and Berry 20100 Maxi Matte Crayon Lipstick is a creamy "super power-pigment" crayon-pencil, matte finish lipstick (most of that I assume you managed to gather from the name) that boasts a nourishing formula that promises to be long-lasting and not to dry out the lips.

It comes packaged in a chunky, shiny black pencil with a transparent plastic lid to cover the tip which is great to see the shade inside. The end of the pencil is also the shade of the lipstick inside and I find that it is an accurate representation of the colour (you know that sometimes they aren't).

I received this lipstick in my beautiful October Birchbox (seriously, the box design is sooo pretty, check it out) in the shade Intimacy, which is a dark-pink nude shade, and I have been giving it a thorough test since.

Beautifinous Break

Hi all!

Today is just a quick post to explain why I've been absent from the blog and even Twitter over the last couple of weeks.

I have been feeling unwell again with bad dizzy spells so I've been struggling to concentrate and get stuff done without feeling like I'm about to fall over. I haven't disappeared from the blog and I'm going to try to focus on getting some presence back on Twitter, but please don't think that Beautifinous as a blog has disappeared because it hasn't.

I will, however, be taking a break until I feel well enough to get my head back in the game.

Thank you all for being amazing readers of the blog, I love you all!

Zoe. @Beautifinous

ModelCo Highlighting Trio review

Guys, it's September. We're edging away from the nice, happy, sunny days and into the doom and gloom of Autumn and Winter. However, we don't need to let rain get us down and to make us lose our summer glow.

ModelCo Highlighting Trio

The ModelCo Highlighting Trio is a face palette that contains a combination of luminous shades to help us keep that healthy glow all year round.

It has three different shades in the pan, a darker, bronzing shade (Bronze), a pink blush shade (Peach Bellini) and a light pink highlight shade (Champagne). They all contain a bit of shimmer, but I'll go into this a bit more in a moment.

They come packaged in a small, black, circular pan with a flip cap lid that has a transparent lid to see the product inside.

This arrived in my September Birchbox (the other ModelCo item available is the Creme Rouge lip and cheek tint which I highly recommend checking out), so if you're interested in checking it out it may be worth also checking out this months Birchbox!

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter review

Every now and then there are certain products that you see cropping up everywhere with everybody raving about them. Sometimes they’re products that you’ve tried and you’re probably one of those raving, but others you probably haven’t and you begin to question what all of the hoo-hah is about.

theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer is one of these products. If you are one of those who love to scroll through the #bbloggers hashtag on Instagram, the chances are that you have definitely seen this highlighter in more than one, two or three photos! Therefore, needing a new highlighter anyway and being a fan of all other theBalm products that I have given a go, I had to give it a try. With that said, I've now owned this for quite a while yet I just hadn't gotten around to reviewing it, until now (better late than never, huh?).

Mary-Lou Manizer is a powder highlighter that claims to add a subtle yet healthy glow to the skin. It's a champagne shade that is suitable for an entire range of skin tones, but will probably work best for those with yellow undertones.

It comes packaged in a silver compact that has a mirror inside. The lid contains the retro style that theBalm use in their packaging (similar to Soap & Glory and Benefit if you've never seen theBalm style packaging before).
