Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana Powder

Makeup Revolution Luxury Powder Banana - £5

For years I'd often hear beauty gurus and bloggers alike raving about the Ben Nye Banana powder. I had always been curious to try it but was never sure whether to believe the hype - it's also not the easiest product to get your hands on!

Earlier this year, Makeup Revolution launched their very own Luxury Banana Powder, developed to give warmth to the face, colour correct pigmentation and to give a bright, mattified complexion. I have been using this everyday to set my make up by using the 'baking' technique, under the eyes between my brows and on my chin. The powder is finely milled and is extremely light weight on the skin and doesn't give a cakey appearance. I have been impressed with the results so far and have found the powder to be surprisingly durable. At just a fiver, this is definitely worth giving a try for a quick and easy, flawless finish to your everyday base.

Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara

Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara - £17.50

It's been a while since I've tried a new mascara. It has always been the one cosmetic that I love to experiment with, whether I'm searching for length or added drama. Recently I got my hands on the new Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening mascara which claims to transform lashes with bodacious volume. With intense pigmentation, it has the formula to create definition with a subtle flutter.

On first impressions I was expecting a thicker applicator, needless to say I love that it is oversized and the small bristles comb through each lash. The consistency is quite thick, I wouldn't recommend using this mascara for the lower lashes as it is prone to clumping which does make application a little tedious. Overall, I would rate this mascara 6/10, it's practical for every day wear but it hasn't outperformed my favourites.
