Animal Kingdom, Florida :)


U.S Mascara Haul

Hey Girls, Finally ive got time to sit down and start blogging again!
I got back from Florida 3 weeks ago now, and as you can imagine whilst i was there i done a lot of shopping!
especially makeup shopping!
I was mostly trying to shop for products that we dont have in the UK, that way its more exciting and special.
I will be doing a few more posts like this in the next few weeks, inlcuding a U.S nail polish haul.

So to start here are the mascaras i picked up..

Covergirl - Lash Blast Volume

This is a much talked about mascara, and its brilliant! The applicator is more comb like than brush, but it works really well on seperating your lashes and really makes them volumised!
I bought this in Walgreens and it was around $9.

Prestige - My Blackest Lashes

I Love this Mascara! The brush applicator is quite big but the perfect size, this gives you intense black, long and volumised lashes.
This was from Ulta and was $6.50!!!

Fairydrops - Scandal Queen

I had only heard of this right before i went away, im glad i did otherwise i wouldnt of really taken notice of it as its not a brand i have ever heard before.
The packaging is gorgeous and the applicator is so strange, its like 3 balls in a curve shape, but it really is good to catch every lash and it keep my lashes curled all day.
From Sephora for $24.

MAC- Zoom Lash

I know this available in the UK, but i still thought id include it as i got it in a MAC set from the store in the Florida Mall. I have used this before years ago but didnt really like it, this time around i do!
The wand is quite small and thin but is really useful for an easy application and no mess, it makes your lashes very black and very long.
MAC set that also included a lip gloss, 2 shadows and a powder $40

(I also got the Maybelline Great Lash mascara that you can buy here but was only $5 in the states so couldnt pass on buying a couple of backups)

I'm Back!!

Hey girls, well im back from Florida and it was amazing! Im so gutted to be home and Disney is all i can think about at the moment!
I got back on Monday afternoon and was straight back to work on Tuesday morning which sucked.
I will be updating my blog again regularly now that im home and will have some great haul posts and reviews of some US products i bought, as well as looking at some of my holiday snaps!

I need to upload all my piccies onto my laptop first so my next post should be in a few days!
I also started a new VTCT level 2 cosmetic makeup 16 week fastrack course on friday night and i love it! It will be completed around August so i will then be a level 2 makeup artist and can hopefully persue the career ive always wanted!
