Jeffree Star Cosmetics Mini Red & Pink Velour Liquid Lipstick Bundle.

When Jeffree first launched the Mini Nude Velour Liquid Lipstick Bundle last year, I hoped that the time would come when he would release a red volume and so in February, when the Love Sick Collection launched, so did the Red & Pink Mini Velour Liquid Lipstick Bundle! As soon as I saw this absolute beauty, I knew that I had to have it in my ever expanding archive of makeup and when it arrived on Beauty Bay on Thursday, I ordered it straight away. Also, I simply have to give a huge appreciation to Beauty Bay, as if you order before 9PM they will ship your order next day for free – that is one seriously good deal.

The Mini Collection retails for £45, which might sound like a lot but considering each Velour Liquid Lipstick is £16 by itself, it’s a pretty great bargain. Jeffree Star Cosmetics have simply outdone themselves with the Love Sick Collection, the packaging is an absolute dream, it looks extremely luxurious and should definitely be displayed on your dressing table. The collection comes with eight of Jeffree’s most popular red and pink shades, with each one being vegan and cruelty free. Out of all eight shades in the box, I only have one – Doll Parts, which is a gorgeous mauve pink tone and definitely one of my favourites to wear. Plus, with four of the shades being on my to buy list, I’m extremely happy to have purchased this set and I can see which ones I would buy in their full size.

The other seven shades in the bundle are as follows, Calabasas, Wifey, Watermelon Soda, Anna Nicole, Prom Night, Redrum and Unicorn Blood. I think if you’re a lover of wearing pink and red lipsticks, then of course, this is most definitely a must have purchase. There is such a variety of hues and tones in this collection, from warm shades – Watermelon Soda and Anna Nicole, to blue shades – Wifey, Redrum, Unicorn Blood, Prom Night and mauve shades – Doll Parts and Calabasas.

Jeffree’s liquid lipsticks are known to be very long lasting and extremely high quality, one of the best formulas in the beauty world. He’s always pushing the boundaries with creating new shades, coming out with unique product ideas and I really do love the concept of the mini collection. Not only is it wonderful to have so many lipsticks for such a good price, but they’re the perfect travel size products to take with you wherever you go. Plus, with such a variety of products,  it’s wonderful to be able to try a shade you may not have necessarily bought separately.

If I had to choose my favourite shade from the collection it would be Redrum, this bold classic red has been one of the colours I’ve been dreaming of purchasing as soon as I discovered it. I know it’s one of Jeffree’s most popular reds and it was simply the first one I had to try! I’ve also photographed myself wearing the colour,  Unicorn Blood and I just love the tone – a cool dark burgundy red. All of Jeffree’s lipsticks dry down to a matte format, but don’t feel uncomfortable, they still keep your lips feeling moisturized. With eight shades in the collection, I’ve now tried seven and can genuinely say I love all of them and now have a new lipstick to wear for each day of the week.

I can’t wait to see what Jeffree Star Cosmetics release next, I wonder what will be the third bundle set, maybe metallics, purples or even rainbow shades? Either way, I’m so excited to find out!

L.O.V Cosmetics.

If you’re a Beauty Blogger like myself or a Makeup Lover, then you’ll know that one of the great things about Instagram is discovering hundreds of new Brands, which is how I came across the amazing, L.O.V Cosmetics! After scrolling through their IG Account, I decided I simply had to email them and share my enthusiasm for their products. I wasn’t really expecting a response as I know how many Blogger emails Brands must receive, however, I was so happy to see a reply, offering to send me samples of their cosmetics!

As soon as the package arrived I knew instantly that it was from L.O.V when I saw their beautiful logo on the front of the box. I carefully unwrapped  the parcel and found within the box – you guessed it – another box! The presentation was absolutely beautiful, featuring a black matte finish and their statement emblem. As I lifted it open, I noticed a beautiful postcard placed on top of the matte personalized L.O.V wrapping paper, with a message to me. As you can probably guess, I was already highly impressed with the aestheticism, when I noticed a stunning satin pouch filled with makeup!

L.O.V kindly gifted me the following, Lip Affair Color & Care Lip Pencil in 501, Lip Affair Color & Care Lipstick in 501 – Gesine’s Redwood, Unexpected Eyeshadow Matte in 130 – Floral Odyssey, Translucent Loose Powder and Lovinty Long Lasting Nail Lacquer in 320 – Revealing Redwood. Thank you so much, L.O.V!

As soon as I saw the beauty products, I instantly had a good feeling about their quality and staying power and ultimately, they most definitely succeeded!

I think what I love most about the lip products is that the lip pencil and lipstick shades are matching! Therefore, I can wear them separately for a more subtle look or together for a long lasting pigmented pout – and we all know I love a bold lip, so of course I will be following the latter! Both lip products are nude, with brown and orange undertones – instantly it made me think of a 60s Brigitte Bardot shade or a 90s Runway Model, you decide?! Although I’m most definitely a red lipstick lover, I do love to try and mix things up every now and then!

The lip pencil applied creamy and was fully pigmented, I only needed one layer and it was very easy to use, although I’m not really sure what the brush is for? I do appreciate having one though! The lipstick has a perfect oval pointed tip which makes creating your dream pout so much easier, it’s just wonderful. Furthermore, the product feels creamy, non sticky and keeps it’s intense shade as advertised. When converted from euros, the lip pencil is £5.18, whilst the lipstick is £8.64 – very good prices for such good quality products! Also, I have to commend L.O.V on the amount of shades available for each item, there is so much variety to choose from, I could spend hours on their website!

As someone who adores a subtle baby pink eyeshadow, I was thrilled to pieces when I opened the compact and saw Floral Odyssey, a mauve pink shade. This product is one very as buildable, which personally is my favourite style of eyeshadow, as there’s nothing worse than over applying the shade on the first layer. This is most definitely an everyday colour and perfect for the Summer Season! For an evening look I’d simply add a few more layers for a stronger impact and contrast it with another shade, it’s definitely versatile and will work with other colours. This retailed at £5.18 also – another great bargain.

Personally, powder is one of my must have makeup products and it is without doubt an everyday must wear for me. Therefore, seeing the Translucent Loose Powder in my package was a breath of fresh air! Believe it or not, for some bizarre reason, I’ve not owned this style of powder for years and I’m ever so glad I can finally say that is no longer the case! The product also comes with a vintage style powder puff – so cute! As far as I’m aware the powder only comes in this one shade and when converted retails at £10.37.

Last but not least in my package, was the Revealing Redwood Nail Lacquer – a stunning mauve pink shade! I’ll be honest, I haven’t actually worn nail varnish in about five + years, shocking, I know! This was due to the varnishes I was using over time ended up weakening and discolouring my nail beds – so gross. However, this product looks absolutely beautiful and I definitely think I will start to paint my nails again! This price was also £5.18, another great deal!

Each of the products have a beautiful chic look to them, are not tested on animals and are genuine great quality! What could possibly be better? The only downside is, as far as I’m aware the company is currently only offering shipping in Germany, so I’m very fortunate to have been gifted some of their amazing items! On a positive, through browsing the web, I think there may be stores available throughout Europe and Ireland, but I can’t be 100% sure. Hopefully this will change soon, as everyone deserves to be able to experience this wonderful Brand.

Please note, I pride myself in making sure I write honest reviews and although I was fortunate enough to be gifted these items, I was not told to say any of the following statements I have made.

Have you got any L.O.V Cosmetics in your Makeup Collection? If so, what’s your favourite product?

Five Perfect Autumn Lipstick Shades.

Paraphrasing the wise words of George R. R. Martin – Autumn Is Coming! Actually, to be pretty frank, it’s well and truly here and apart from the orange leaves and snuggling in front of the fire, what else could be better than choosing the perfect shades of lipstick?

To suit the Season, I find the perfect shades to wear are usually purples, burgundies or anything fairly dark, so after finally being inspired by Laura – I’m going to share with you guys my Top Five shades. However, it’s all about being comfortable and happy with yourself so if the colours aren’t for you then that’s okay, it’s just my personal opinion.

My first lipstick recommendation has to be MAC’s Up The Amp – a purple shade with an amplified finish. I think this colour is perfect for Autumn weather due to it’s vibrant intense purple fitting perfectly with the cool and windy weather. I also believe this shade suits all types of skin tones and is suitable for everyone to try due to it being quite versatile.  On the website the lipstick is described as a, “Lavender Violet“. However, I feel it is more intense than the image shown, the shade is definitely very bold and stands out. At £15.50 this product comes in at the medium to high end price range but as a lot of my lipsticks are from MAC, I can definitely say they are worth the money and are very good quality.

Next up is NYX’s Cherry Skies – to me, this colour is the signature shade for Autumn due to it’s rusty burgundy tone. It is a deep matte red in liquid lipstick formula and is only £6.50, which comes in towards the cheaper price range and it is definitely worth your money. I actually think that NYX’s Liquid Lipsticks are better than some of the high end products out there, they stay on and are lasting! This shade is an absolute show stopper – a statement bold you can’t miss me red and because of this it may be intimidating to some. However, if you’re a red lipstick lover like me, it’s definitely worth branching out and giving it a try! I feel this colour is a perfect compliment to the rusty orange and red leaves of Autumn and has a very 1920s vintage vamp feel.

My third must have shade for Autumn is MAC’s Twig, described on their website as a, “Soft Muted Brownish-Pink” which I think sums the colour up perfectly. Although, I do think once again the lipstick looks slightly lighter than it actually is, it is definitely darker than pictured. The finish for Twig is Satin, which is a glossy texture so it looks quite shiny, however I feel the colour stays and if this bothers you than a lip pencil can always be used to make it last – I use Hover. This shade is not too bold but definitely isn’t a nude lipstick, so if you want a subtle look than this isn’t really for you. Personally, I prefer to go for a bolder colour in the colder season and pink coral shades for the warmer weather.

Number four is Rimmel’s Glam Plum Fulham in 470, which is an intense purple-burgundy shade with a glossy finish. After not wearing this colour for a while I decided to apply it today, so I could review it for this post and at first I was pretty shocked with how bold it was. I was almost unsure if this shade suited me at first because it stood out so much but once I’d finished applying I loved the end result. At £6.49 this lipstick is nearer the cheaper priced products but once again I found the quality to be long lasting even with the glossy texture. The product is described as a “Moisture Renew” lipstick and I can definitely say that after wearing this all day my lips have not felt dry and I’ve not needed to reapply it either.

Last but not least is probably one of the most popular lipsticks around; MAC’s Velvet Teddy. With Kylie Jenner setting the nude trend for lipsticks on fire, this soon became the top selling shade in MAC’s Collection so of course,  I had to find out what the fuss was all about. Velvet Teddy is described as a, “Deep Tone Beige” with a matte finish and I would pretty much agree with that description. The colour looks like the perfect shade for autumn and it’s not too nude, it actually has a proper brownish tint to it and doesn’t drain your face. The only problem is this lipstick is extremely popular so it may take a few trips to MAC before you actually come home with one.

I hope you enjoyed my Five Perfect Autumn Lipstick Shades and they inspire you to update your look and try something new. There are so many amazing colours out there to make your own!

MAC Give In Lipstick.

MAC lovers! In case you’re not aware, a new collection of lipsticks called Blue Nectar have recently been released online and in stores. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this launch for quite a few weeks now and to my surprise I stumbled across the new range in store last weekend.

There are twelve shades,  three of them being re-releases, (I think) and nine new colours. Before being able to swatch each lipstick I’d already decided I loved quite a few of them, my favourite being Intoxica – a classic red, what else? Therefore, this post is all the more surprising when I reveal I went for a completely new shade for me – Give in!

I sadly wasn’t as impressed with Intoxica when I swatched it, I don’t know why, it just didn’t seem to live up to my hopes, however I’ve not actually tried it on, so don’t let me influence you too much. Ultimately, I think I’ve just got way too many red lipsticks! But you can never have enough, right?

What’s shocking about me choosing Give In is pretty obvious, it’s not a classic 1950s vintage girl shade and it’s definitely not a colour I have in my lipstick collection!  Give In is described as a creamy natural pink and I’d agree with that, it’s definitely a lot more pale than my usual bold colours and clearly doesn’t stand out as much – not that that’s a bad thing of course. It’s without doubt a definite 1960s shade, so if you’re a fan of sixties make up then this is the colour for you. The finish is amplified, so creates an almost glossy texture which I’ve noticed doesn’t last as long as matte so a lip pencil with this shade would go a long way – I’ve yet to find the matching colour for it though!

I’ll be honest, when I first applied the lipstick, I really wasn’t sure if it suited me, I couldn’t decide if it was just too light  for me and I’m pretty sure I could hear my red lipsticks whispering to wear them instead. However, as soon as I’d fixed my hair and outfit I felt that actually, change can be a pretty good thing and maybe this was one of those moments. When I swatched all of the shades in the store this colour stood out to me for a reason, it was different and it wasn’t my go to lipstick. I always love experimenting with make up and trying different shades, daring to be different and remove any invisible barriers I create for myself

I’m always used to wearing a bold shade of lipstick, even when I wear a nude or coral colour it’s always fairly pigmented and this definitely wasn’t one of those. I automatically think of this shade suiting darker skin tones, eyes and hair to contrast and create a more stand out look, however, it was nice to realize it actually didn’t look too bad on myself. I have to remind myself that not all blondes wear red lipstick – nude shades are giving just as much competition!

I don’t know about the stores, but if you want to order this online then currently you’re out of luck. Not only is Give In sold out but five out of the twelve shades are temporarily, (I think) unavailable. As this clearly means they’re very popular, I’d hope they’d be back in stock asap, so don’t lose hope! What I love about this collection is there are so many unique shades, I can’t tell you how long I’ve wanted a lilac lipstick and there’s finally one available, well it’s sold out for now – but you get my point!

Kylie Lip Kit Part Two.

A month ago I wrote about my first Kylie Lip Kits; Candy, Posie and Mary Jo and since then I decided to order two more shades, 22 and Koko. Today they have arrived and I am very happy with my latest additions!

I ordered 22 and Koko on the 29th March and fifteen days later they arrived, a couple of days longer than my first order but they are delivered all the way from America so I was happy to wait. However, this time my order was subjected to a customs fee of £12, which has frustrated me a lot as I ordered three Lip Kits last time and didn’t recieve any charge. Of course this is nothing to do with Kylie or her products but it has sadly put me off ordering more.

I must say that although I think the quality of the products are amazing, the shades of the lipsticks can be very misleading. With my previous shades, Posie and Candy, I absolutely adored how they looked on Kylie, however  I was slightly disappointed with the colours on me. I felt Posie was a lot darker and not a vibrant super pink like it is on Kylie and Candy was also significantly different. I guess it all depends on your skin tones, luckily I feel the shades Mary Jo and Koko look a lot closer to the colours they are advertised as. I’ve noticed quite a few people have commented about the shades looking different so I’m not the only one who has noticed this.

I decided to buy Koko and 22 because they were very different to previous Lip Kit shades and I was hoping Koko would be a lot lighter on me – and it was! Koko is described as a pale pinky nude and on my lips I think it ironically looks a lot like the shade I thought Candy was, so I’m happy about that and but it’s lighter than Posie and Candy. 22 is a burnt orange shade and although it’s not as vibrant on me as I would like, it’s definitely the shade it is advertised as.

Any of you who follow @kyliecosmetics on Instagram will know about the upcoming metallic metal shades; King, Reign and Heir. Although I won’t be able to buy any of them at this current moment in time, from the swatches Kylie has shared I’d definitely wear Heir, it’s my favourite shade out of the three for sure and I think it would compliment blondes with pale skin.

Speaking of new shades, Kylie has also brought out three nude glosses; Like, Literally and So Cute.  As I’m not really a lip gloss person I’ve yet to purchase any, although if I was to pick my favourite shade I’d choose So Cute. I’m pretty sure So Cute is the lightest shade so from my experience with the Lip Kits, picking this one won’t look too dark on my lips. The irony is, I absolutely love a bold lip colour, but there’s a fine line between just right and too intense. Although I still love the shades Posie and Candy, it is frustrating seeing them look so perfect on Kylie and a different colour on myself.

First photo is me just wearing the lip liner and the second  photo is me wearing the lipstick over the liner.

Apart from the Lip Kit themselves, the other exciting part of ordering from Kylie is receiving the iconic Kylie Cosmetics Postcard. Sadly, for some reason this time I didn’t find one in my box, I don’t know if this was by accident or because it was my second order. However, there’s a different postcard with Kylie’s Glosses and I think I might even prefer that as it is a photo of Kylie from her Glosses music video. If any of you have tried the other shades or glosses then please let me know what you think, I’d love to hear your opinions!

I must thank Kylie for introducing me to liquid lipsticks, I still can’t get over how amazing they are and I can’t wait to try other brands versions too. It’s also so refreshing to see a celebrity use their own products and be so involved in the process. I’m so excited to see the new shades of Lip Kits Kylie releases and continue to watch her brand grow, she’s doing so well and should be very proud of herself!

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Matte-Lip in Pretty Muted.

As someone who adores the vintage era and the style from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, I’ve always appreciated the Soap & Glory Brand! I’ve used a few of their Bath products for years and loved them and yesterday I finally made my first purchase from their Make Up range, buying myself a Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick.

I remember years ago when the Sexy Mother Pucker Lipglosses first came out and a few people had them, you applied the gloss and suddenly your lips would tingle and plump up – fascinating! Sadly I never got round to getting one, however, there’s always time!

I love the packaging of Soap & Glory, the Lipstick is the perfect size to carry with you anywhere and at just £3.50 it’s an absolute bargain! I decided to purchase a Matte Lipstick over a Gloss Stick as I feel the glossy finishes never last as long. I was testing each shade on my hand and decided to go for a warm pink shade.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, although I love the colour pink I rarely wear it as a lip shade as I  prefer to choose bolder colours. However, I really loved the warm tones to Pretty Muted and I always think it’s good to try out different shades. As well as red shades being a signature colour of the 1950s, pinks were often worn quite frequently and as someone who is forever being inspired by Old Hollywood, I thought I’d try and embrace them too.

What I loved about this product is the shape of the lipstick, it’s perfect for defining your lip line and is very easy to apply, it even glides on smoothly like a lip gloss but the results are matte finish – such a paradox! The only negative thing I found when using the Sexy Mother Pucker was that I had to apply quite a lot of coats to get the shade quite noticeable. I can only attribute this to the low price of the lipstick as the quality is lovely, it would probably stay on for longer if I had applied a lip pencil first.

I definitely will be using more Soap & Glory in the future, it’s such a unique brand and very special to vintage lovers like myself! I think next time I’ll try a darker shade or a  Matte Powder Coat Long-Wear Lipstick as that seems more suitable for me. However, it’s refreshing to try a new shade of lipstick and I’m definitely coming round to wearing pink lipstick!

Real Techniques.

I adore applying my make up, but what makes it even more fun is using brushes! My favourite brand that I have been using for years are the wonderful Real Techniques! Not only is it less messy, but brushes are key for blending and using your products to the best of their purpose.


For years I’ve used their brushes for applying my foundation, blusher and powder and they’ve lasted wonderfully! Therefore, I was thrilled when I opened up a Birthday present and received a gift set of five brushes with a lovely glam clutch to keep them all together! I’ve already watched some of my favourite YouTubers; TheRoxetera and MyPaleSkinBlog use some of these products so I couldn’t wait to try them out whilst applying my every day make up.

As well as the silver clutch bag, you get five different brushes; a fine liner brush, a base shadow brush, an angled highlighter brush, a foundation brush and a multi task brush which I use for applying my blusher. The other brushes I already own are; a powder brush, a lipstick brush and a silicone eyeliner brush.

When I finally tried the brushes, I was far from disappointed, not only is the quality of each product exceptional, they look absolutely beautiful. Each brush is a specific colour for a reason, example being all of the purple brushes are for your eye make up. They are all perfectly shaped to apply to the contours of your face and since I have used the brushes, not one bristle has came out! Anyone who has used a cheaper make up brush will know what a pet peeve that can be.

Although I love all of the brushes, my favourite one would probably be the fine liner brush. A few months ago I bought a silicone liner brush from the same brand, which I was very impressed with. However, I prefer the fine liner style, I feel the brush can be applied further into the crease of your top lid and the brushes take the eyeliner better than the silicone style brush. It’s nice to have the option to use either one though!

Ever since I started using the retractable lip brush, I’ve noticed how much quicker I can apply my lipstick. I also produce a much cleaner result! In using a brush I can blend different shades together without mixing the actually lipstick and I find it a lot easier extending my lip line!

The great thing about the eye shadow brushes is the different available sizes in product! Some of the brushes are wider and shaped bigger whilst some of the brushes are petite and better for applying eye shadow to the inner crease of your eyelid.

The blush brush is a lot different to my original and I must say that I definitely prefer my new product. It’s a lot thicker and fuller and instead of just applying it by brushing it on I can now press the blush on my cheeks and blend it in better. It’s also great that it’s made to apply bronzer and powder too, not just blusher. Plus, it’s my first pink brush so I find it very aesthetically pleasing!

As soon as I tried my new foundation brush I knew I would no longer be using my old one. Nothing was wrong with it, however I love the curved brushes, the wider shape and thicker bristles. It’s great for blending and very soft on your face. I recommend Real Techniques to all who appreciate good products for applying make up!

Funny Face (1957)

My absolute favourite thing to do is see an old movie on the big screen and having a FACT Picturehouse close to me, I’ve been fortunate to watch a few as they specialize in Vintage Sundays.

Yesterdays film was an Audrey Hepburn classic – Funny Face (1957) and being  a pretty big Audrey fan I was extremely excited! Although I’ve got most of Audrey’s movies on DVD, I’ve only watched Funny Face once (!) and that was a while ago, so it was almost like seeing a new movie. I’m pretty sure I sat with a smile on my face throughout the whole film, it was just beautiful.

Naturally, going to see Audrey Hepburn on the big screen, I had to dress up myself! I decided to wear my green shift dress from Dorothy Perkins – I bought it as a potential birthday dress for my 21st last year and a year on – I still love it just as much.

Being a shift dress, the style is very 1960s and although I prefer the fit of 1940s and 1950s style dresses, I absolutely adore this one. Although the dress line is straight, it still fits fairly tight it and it’s always nice to change up your dress style every now and then. My favourite part of the dress has to be the neckline detail, the jewels compliment the green colour perfectly. It almost looks like you have sewn a set of leaves and added them to the dress.

Below the collar, the dress does separate and shows a bit of cleavage, more than I’m used to if I’m honest! However, don’t be daunted if you’re a bit self conscious like myself, you’re concealed very well and they key hole opening is fairly small. I find it pretty hard to spot green dresses, so this one is pretty special! It’s definitely one of my favourite colours to wear, I feel the colour green can almost have some stigma attached to it, but it’s all about finding the write shade and daring to be different.

As for my hair I pin curled it the night before and was very happy with the results, for a vintage film it’s only suitable that I have vintage styled hair after all! I decided to wear my cute little bow clips from Primark, I’ve got a few hair accessories from there over the years and they’ve lasted so well!

Also, I finally had a chance to wear and review my make up products for you all that I got for my Birthday;

The first item I tried was my concealer by NARS in Chantilly – the lightest shade. Before my new NARS products, I’d only tried one of their lipsticks from their Audacious Collection in Brigitte and I must say, it’s one of my favourites.  Therefore, after finding the beautiful Em from My Pale Skin on YouTube and seeing her use this countless of times, I knew I had to try it! I’ll be honest, this is actually the first concealer I’ve ever used, I don’t know why as I’ve never been against them, I’ve just always stuck to Foundation and Powder. However, I’m so glad I branched out! The shade matches me perfectly, which is usually quite rare as I’m so fair skinned and I applied it after my Foundation and Powder. To my surprise, it blended in perfectly and I didn’t need any powder to control the creamy effect. I know it’s not very noticeable in the pictures, but I could definitely see the difference and will be continuing to use this in my day to day make up routine.

The second product I received was a blusher by NARS in Orgasm and I’ve heard great things about this blush so I was looking forward to trying it out. I’ve had the same pink blusher for years and whilst it’s very nice, I wanted to change it up a bit and try something new. The compact is so classy and the texture is really nice too, it has an unusual rubbery feel to it. I especially love when make up products have mini mirrors inside and NARS didn’t disappoint me! The blusher is a pink mixed with a slight coral tint and after applying I noticed it had an almost shimmery effect so further highlighted my face.

The final product I used was Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and I was beyond excited to try this item! I’ve always loved the Benefit Brand because it has such a vintage look to it and I absolutely adore the packaging for this mascara. The pink and black compliment each other perfectly and it’s so unique, I don’t think I’ve ever seen another mascara like it! The wand also matches the outer packaging and straight away when trying it out, I noticed the brush kept my lashes separated. Furthermore, unlike other mascaras, I could apply multiple coats and not see any clumps, I’ve not got very long or thick eyelashes so this is essential for any mascara I use. The brush has a special, “Hook ‘N’ Roll” effect and I found it fairly easy to change my hand position whilst applying the mascara as the brush fitted all aspects of my lashes.
