Essence – Big Lashes Mascara

Saturday 20th June 2015

Essence are a very affordable beauty brand that offer high quality products at a reasonable price with most items costing just under £4. A few people have recommended their products to me so I decided to give their ‘Big Lashes’ mascara a try.

Big Lashes mascara creates beautiful, voluminous lashes while lifting and curling. The specially designed extra large wand is perfect for achieving bold lashes, it separates lashes with ease and stops them from sticking together. Big Lashes also offers amazing staying power and lasts for around 8 hours before it needs to be reapplied – of course this may differ from person to person. As stated on the tube, this mascara is indeed waterproof! It doesn’t run or smudge! It also doesn’t leave any black marks or stains around the eyes but I did need to apply three coats to achieve full, maximum coverage. The mascara is also very nicely presented something that you don’t always get with less expensive brands.

Fashionistas! As you may know I recently won a wonderful competition organised by Fiorelli! For my prize I received the gorgeous Rita Tote in the St.Tropez print! I still can’t believe that I have won such a beautiful bag and I am ever so grateful to Fiorelli for sending me such a magnificent gift. I love everything about my new bag, it’s pretty, luxurious and of course super stylish! The tan, blue and white colour theme is so gorgeous and the floral print is just perfect for summer.

In today’s outfit I have decided to use my new bag as a statement piece by keeping the rest of my look simple in an all black attire. My black Topshop skinnies and H&M button-up blouse look lovely together and compliment each other perfectly. I really like wearing black with black, it looks really flattering and is of course fashionable. I also added a cute silver necklace from Primark (£4) for a nice bit of detail.

This sweet floral dress is one of my latest purchases from Primark. It was marked up at £13 imagine my surprise and delight when it went through the till at just £2!! Now that’s what I call a bargain :). As you can see this dress is absolutely beautiful, the floral print is gorgeous and the material is smooth, silky and cool – just perfect for summer. The matching print belt is also great for creating shape and finishes the dress off nicely, while the cute frill trim around the sleeves adds a nice unique touch. I can’t wait to wear this lovely dress all summer long :).
