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
