I'm back and I've found the perfect mascara!

So much for writing a really long post last Sunday eh? I don't really have an excuse, I was really tired and my laptop has been playing up AGAIN, shock. To give you an idea of the laptop situation, I have to keep my laptop tilted at a slightly downward, right position or it turns itself off, it won't charge and if the cable isn't plugged in at a certain angle, it turns itself off. This turning off happens A LOT and I always end up losing something important online. The battery is at zero so the moment the cable moves it's game over which makes trying to type with one hand whilst the other keeps the laptop tilted is a real bore when it take 9 attempts :( whing whinge moan moan- sorry, I'll stop!


In my previous post I mentioned that the matte curtain road from Nails inc. chipped really easily so I thought if I was going to ruin the matte effect with a topcoat then I might as well make it a little more interesting. I picked up these two Models Own polishes in Boots with their 2 for £8 deal from the new Hed Kandi range which I just LOVE.
L-R, Beach Party, Ibiza mix
I will give a proper review of Beach Party soon, the photo just doesn't do it any justice- it glows so brightly!






What do you think? I just love Ibiza mix on top of curtain road, the different sizes of round pastel glitter look so nice with it. I think it will compliment blue even better so I did a couple of patch tests below... I think I'll try Peacock next. This is just 1 coat of glitter so 3 would probably get you close to opaque, although 1 coat took forever to remove so I would love to know how many days 3 coats would take to remove!

Apologies for the dodgy card tester but my nail wheels haven't arrived yet and I only have one pair of hands
On to mascara...

I find it really difficult to leave the house without any mascara, probably ever since I received my first Diorshow mascara in a gift set for Christmas...hmm maybe 8 years ago? God I hope not because that makes me feel ancient and I'm only 23.
I have fairly large eyes and would probably consider them my best/only feature. My eyelashes used to be longer, thicker and darker but after years of abuse they are suffering a little and are quite pale so on goes the bucket of mascara on a daily basis. 
Even my mum stares for a while and says 'Aha, that's what's different-
I'm not used to seeing you without any eye make-up' when it isn't on. 
Thanks mum. 

I am a big fan of Chanel mascaras, the don't flake like Dior and they almost always have the effect that the advert says which I've discovered isn't always true with other companies.

Chanel Sublime Mascara

The INCREDIBLE Chanel Sublime mascara
I picked this up in Sephora in Paris in January on a bit of a fluke, I had loved their Cils a Cils in the past and also their Inimitable so I thought this looked promising and would give it a go.
BEST.DECISION.EVER

My plain, scary looking boggler
A swish of the magic wand

One coat

I think I have my photos confused, this is supposed to be 2 coats and I have a feeling it's still one...

Two coats & eyeliner
This is halfway through the tube I reckon, which is my only gripe with every Chanel mascara I have ever used- You will never have as good an effect as with the first week of using it. It is so formula heavy on the wand to start with that they run out very quickly and even after a week or 2 it is noticeable how much less is being used; it's still always a fantastic mascara but nowhere near as good as the first use. I didn't want to blink the first time in case I blew cars off the road!
I am now on my 3rd Sublime, the 2nd was a waterproof version which was good but it seems that something in the formula detracts from it's length, volume & separation capabilities and I would just stick with regular panda mascara with Chanel now.
I also usually only use DEEP BLACK but picked up Deep Brown in a hurry by mistake. It's thw brown I am wearing in the photos and do you know what I thought it would be too subtle but it's great and I can't really tell that it isn't black at all.

I would definitely recommend this to any mascara addicts out there, it's just so good!

Well that's this post over with, I will try and get my arse in gear and post every night again because I've got SO MUCH to talk about on here!
