When it comes to expensive mascara I don’t really buy into it because they have such a short product life. It’s suggested to throw them out every 3 months as they can become contaminated each time we run the spoolie through our lashes & the dip it back into the tube. This is why the first expensive mascara that I’ve come across is Mac’s False Lash Extreme which I got as a sample size when I made an online order.

I’ve wanted to order this Chocolate Suede Color Tattoo ever since I saw it on Superdrug’s website but I kept looking in stores in the hopes of swatching it. When I still came up empty-handed I caved & ordered it online, I wasn’t disappointed..
I love getting creative with makeup, even though I’m yet to perfect that feline flick! I will often make Saturday about trying out something a bit different like the recent affair I’m having with the Clinique’s Black Honey range or simply a strong lip shade like Bobbi Browns Razzberry that stands out, it creates a focal point.
