Review: Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara

We all know mascara is my have-to-have makeup item. I just don’t feel myself without a coat (ok, maybe three coats…) of mascara on my lashes. I am forever searching for the best mascaras to plump up my lashes and open my eyes up. I have tried so many mascaras and have become quite picky with them.

Today, I thought I’d give you my thoughts on the Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes mascara.

For starters, the main thing that stands out for this one is the applicator wand. It is small and spherical, instead of the long ones you normally get. I quite like this because, yes it takes a bit longer, but it allows you to be very precise and get every little lash, without getting mascara all over your eye lids.

I have also found that this product is quite lengthening, but I do put on a couple of coats to get it to how I like it.

The negatives, it does take a little longer to put on. This isn’t really a quick swipe and go product. It is also a bit more pricy at £24, so I would say this is more of a treat yourself kind of thing, but I do love having it as an option in my mascara bag (yes, I do have a cosmetics bag just for mascara…..don’t judge me!) I do think that you can get other mascaras that will work just as well from a high street brand, so if you aren’t in the market for a pricy mascara, have no fear, you will find some pretty fab ones at Superdrug.

Overall, I give this product a thumbs up because it goes on easily, it does lengthen my lashes and gives me an ‘eyes wide open’ look, which I love and I do really like the smaller applicator wand.

Let me know if you like this product too, or if you don’t think it’s worth the money.

Until next time gang,

Review: Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

Hello everyone!

How are you all on this lovely day? The sun in shining here for the first time in the week I have been here, so I am very excited about that!

I haven’t done a review in a while and they are some of my favourite posts to do since I get to just gush about a product, so today I am breaking the silence. Todays subject: Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.

The verdict: try it!

You can find it on SALE here!

I normally tend to stay away from the liquid liners because they are a bit easier to mess up than a felt tip liner, but for some reason I felt compelled to give this liquid one a go. I actually really like it!

I found that it goes on very easily and I love the finish that it gives. You know how some liners dull as soon as they dry and then you feel like you have to put on another coat? Well, this one didn’t seem to do that! It stayed jet black even after it dried and to me, that’s a win. It is also waterproof, so on days that the allergies are playing up, or you get caught in a rain storm, this stays on, no black lines on this face!

Another thing that I love about this product is that it is by Urban Decay and a lot of the Urban Decay products these days are vegan. I just find that I feel so much better about using products/brands that are vegan and I am thrilled that UD advertise a fair few of their products as such. On top of that, the products are amazing, so I can’t ask for much else.

I love hearing from you guys so let me know if you guys have tried this product, as well as what you think about UD advertising vegan products (do you like it? do you care? etc!).

Talk to you next time,
