Essence Haul + a look at the Soul Sista Trend Edition!

Hey Guys!
So I visited my favourite Essence stand to "re-stock" on some essentials and also to buy some pastel nail colours.
All my purchases!
Essence Lash Caring Eye Make Up Remover
This is a re-purchase since I absolutely LOVE this eye make up remover!! Very gentle and takes every last piece of make up away!
essence Colour & Go in Better late than never, Viva la green, Sure Azure, Let's get lost
Wanted a few pastel colours especially in mint and light blue so I was thrilled when I found Viva la green and Sure Azure! I also took a fancy to Better late than never and Let's get lost so I bought them too!
essence Stay natural concealer in 01 Soft Beige and Catrice Light Reflecting concealer in 030 Rosy Beige
My two favourite concealers, both a re-purchase!! I use the Stay Natural Concealer during the day and the Catrice Light Reflecting Concealer for a more full make up look since it is more "refined" as a concelear.

Catrice Ultimate Shine Lipstick in Fox Nox
Me and my love for Catrice Lipsticks!! Since I am growing my collection I went ahead and treated myself ;)

essence Forget it concealer and I <3 Stage eye primer
I bought these two items for my friend  & colleague Gail who asked me for some make up advice regarding dark circles and oily lids so I recommended these two products to  her, hope she's enjoying them! ;)

Soul Sista Limited Edition- Nail polish- Mojito Green, Brush-70ies Hair Style, Palette- Call it Boogie, Nail Polish-  Lounge Chair Affair, Lipgloss- Lounge Chair Affair, Eyeliner- Diving @ Swimming Pool
As you all know I am a SUCKER for Limited Edition items! So I went a little nuts when I saw the Soul Sista collection, you may view the whole collection: HERE. I bought Mojito Green and Lounge Chair Affair since both colours are very in trend right now and very summery! I decided to go with the Call it Boogie palette since the other palette they have is very similar to this palette and it just had only two colours which were not similar. The blue eyeliner looks stunning and I can't wait to try it out and the lip gloss just has summer written all over it!!

What do you think of the new trend edition?

Tried & Tested: Pupa Vamp Mascara

Hi Guys!!

I hope you are all well!! I am very sorry for my lack of posts lately however I have been very busy with other commitments that I did not have time to blog, apart from which I was involved in a tiny accident and couldn't use the computer since I was slightly injured.

Today I would like to review the Pupa Vamp Mascara which was sent to me by Pupa Milano Malta!

At first I was not sure how I could pull off blue mascara however I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that although it is blue its is not an 'in your face'/ over the top mascara and could be easily pulled off.

The mascara is presented in a sleek silver tube and promises thick full lashes! The mascara's brush is a thin brush which is designed to have a lengthening effect.

I have tested this mascara by just applying one coat and I was pleasantly surprised by the results, my lashes, looked more voluminous and longer as you can see in the below picture.

This mascara also promises an incredible hold and no smudging. I tried out this by wearing this mascara for a night out and was presently surprised that it stayed on very well, with the blue tint still looking as though I had just applied it. With regards to smudging, bear in mind that it is very hot here in Malta and I am a person who has very oily eyelids, surprisingly this mascara did not smudge on me!

As you can note from the above photo, the Pupa Vamp Mascara, with just one coat managed to give me fuller lashes than without any mascara, apart from that the blue is quite wearable and brought my eyes out!

I decided to experiment a bit and applied a Catrice Black Mascara and added the Pupa Vamp Mascara at the tips of the eyelashes, the result? ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!! If you do not want to go full out blue it really brings out something special in the lashes as you can see below!

The Verdict: I absolutely loved this Mascara and I will be definitely purchasing the black version of this mascara! The only downfall with this Mascara is that you can't always wear the blue mascara however I encourage you to try out just adding it on your tips if you are not ready to go full out blue!
