Recently I’ve loved finding ways to relax and indulge myself a bit which don’t involve chocolate and wine (taste amazing, but stick around on my thighs for a while). I’ve been loving a wide range of different candles over the last few months but I may have found a dangerous new area in which to spend my money!
I’ve never much one who has gone overboard on make up, only in the last couple of years giving in to a marginally more expensive and better quality foundation. But I may have found a range that I could get really in to. Younique products seem to be extremely well wearing, are not tested on animals and also run the Younique Foundation which a charity supporting sexually abused women. Sounds like a great start…right?!
Add in one very enthusiastic and genuine colleague who in a previous life spent 10 years as a journalist with her own beauty page, is a self-confessed make-up addict and who can’t stop raving about how amazing the products are and you’ve got me thinking a bit more. The lovely Kirsty has just launched her business page on Facebook where you can access her Younique shop to have a look at some of the wonderful products. She’s been uploading some great little tutorial video’s and is inspiring women across Worthing to look glamorous no matter what they are doing.
Kirsty was even more generous and has given me a ‘Magic Mascara’ to try out and holy moly is this thing good! It’s sold 1 million sets since it’s launch in the summer and I think I might already be hooked.
So here’s the science stuff that you need to know:
- It will boost your lash volume by up to 400% and increase length without the need for fiddly falsies.
- It is hypoallergenic
- It features a specially designed brush to separate and define the lashes
What I really want to show you is the difference in my lashes when I wear it.
It’s particularly hard wearing too. I wore it on Thursday at work which turned out to be a tough day, a few tears were shed in the evening and I had rubbed my eyes in tiredness and frustrated throughout the day. My lashes?! Looked exactly the same as when I’d put them on at 6.30 a.m.
Admittedly, due to the 2 different applicators to use, it does take a few minutes longer to apply than my normal one coat mascara but if you already apply more than one coat of mascara it’s probably about the same. I guarantee you that it makes you feel a little bit extra special and glam as you wear it, which is quite something for the tired Mama’s and teachers of the world.
I also love that there are windows on the sides of the tubes so that you can see as you are getting lower so no surprises when one morning it just stops working, not great for faking alertness!
I think my next step might be to sit down with Kirsty and decide upon a whole new make up bag contents for me, one that makes me feel more like the glam goddess which is hidden so far inside at the moment. If you want to have a look at Kirsty’s site pop over to Facebook. Those of you who are based elsewhere in the country can either put orders in through Kirsty and pay the P&P to your address (free P&P for orders over £65), or order through a presenter local to you and save on the P&P.
