Maybelline Turbo Boost Volume Express Mascara - A total must have!

Hey Guys!

Finally been able to get back on here - sorry it has been so long, life has been pretty hectic for the last wee while. Promise things will be on track for some great blogging from now on! 

Right - My review of Maybelline's Turbo Boost Volume Express Mascara.

This mascara is by far one of the best mascara's that I have used. Now I adore mascara - there is not a day that goes by that I don't use it and always make sure I have one on hand! 

I am the type of person that loves big bold thick lashes - if you are that type to then this is the perfect mascara for you! It is not clumpy, not too wet or dry and awful. It is just right. I always buy black mascara and this one is just that - jet black! My current tube is almost 2 months old and still has alot of life yet - this says alot for someone who wears it everyday!

I find it easy to remove at night time with face wipes or whatever you use - it comes off with ease and does not leave black panda eyes for you! :) Another great thing is it wears well, I don't buy waterproof mascara as I am not a fan so for a non waterproof this wears well. No smudging or flaking off.

So all in all - a great mascara. Now I have used just about every mascara brand you can think of and this by far excels some of the more expensive brands.

This retails for approx $25 so is a real bargain if it lasts you 3 months. I always replace mascara after 3 months to ensure cleanliness and quality :)

Above is a pic of me wearing Maybelline Turbo Volume Express - this is my everyday look. I achieve this by first using eyelash curlers for about 3-5 seconds per eye. Then I apply 1-2 coats of mascara then let them dry. This is vital to achieve the big lash look! Once they are dry I apply desired coats following the above method until I get my desired look!

Vaseline Cocoa Butter - a must have!

Welcome to my first product review!

Its Vaseline Cocoa Butter - this stuff is amazing and smells divine!

I have been looking for a good skin moisturizer for a long time. I have found so many that are greasy and don't absorb in to the skin very well, or they feel as if you haven't moisturized at all and your skin is still uber dry! 

Well this moisturizer by Vaseline is my new best friend - it is enriched with cocoa butter and vitamin E, smells absolutely yummy and best of all it is absorbed into the skin very quickly! It does not leave a greasy residue at all but leaves your skin with a slight sparkle to it and feeling so soft. I totally recommened it if you haven't tried it yet as you won't be disspointed!

Best of all it won't break the bank, it's available at super markets, chemists, The Warehouse, K-Mart etc for around $11.99. I would say Super markets would be your cheapest option as that's where I got mine from. 

Happy moisturizing! :)
