JackyMac Mineral Foundation in Warm

JackyMac is a mineral makeup company producing a large number of unique mineral eyeshadows and foundations.

This particular JackyMac foundation was very unusual in that it was formulated entirely of powder and looked more like a compact powder.

The product comes in a circular pot that is sealed by a hygiene sticker on top of the holes. On taking the sticker off it is quite easy to get the product out simply by tapping the sides.

I applied the foundation with a brush and found that not much of it stayed on my face and just seemed to drop off onto the chair and the desk. I have heard of cream to powder foundations but never a powder on its own so I wasn't entirely sure how it was really supposed to work.

In the end I did manage to get some of the powder to stay on my face but I can't say the coverage was very good as it wasn't able to sink into my skin very well.

As it didn't really work with my skin i'd give it a 2/5

  • Made completely out of minerals
  • Good for oily skin
  • The powder consistency didn't work for me as it just didn't stay on the face
  • Not very good coverage 
You can find this foundation here 


MyFace Slinky Matte Eyeliner

MyFace slinky matte eyeliner comes in a attractive white tube that really stands out with its black lettering on a white background.

The eyeliner is a liquid consistency that instantly flows from the brush nib so there is no messing around with trying to get the colour onto the eyelid.

I felt that it created a really nice dark line that dried really quickly and had a lot of pigment in it.

Eyeliner is of course a completely versatile tool in which you can create a huge number of looks, such as cat eyes or straight and simple. See this guide for more details.The colour is very long lasting and is as bold as it was when it was first applied many hours later. Thumbs up!

For it's simplicity and bold colour I will give this eyeliner 4/5.

  • Flows onto the eyelid so easily
  • Bold, dark colour
  • Long lasting
  • None!

Create The Summer Loving Look!

Yesterday I decided to experiment with a new Summer loving look.

Using baby pink Barry M eyeshadow and a gold eyeliner I created a shimmery pastel look that will look really fresh and on trend in the highly anticipated sunshine!

I normally wear black eyeliner to highlight my eyes so the gold/pink look is very different and soft. It's a perfect look for wearing on holiday on the beach or just for a casual shopping trip with friends.

Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara

The latest prodigy in the Maybelline collection is the Maybelline Illegal lengths mascara.

The mascara is formulated with fibre extensions in order to get you the biggest lashes possible.

The tube is a attractive shiny silver colour with pink labelling. The plastic brush is pretty long to enable you to achieve the maxiumum coverage possible.

The brush is slightly itchy on my eyes which is a shame and it can be quite difficult to apply to the bottom lashes as it feels slightly arkward and can scratch your eyes if you approach it wrong.

The result is pretty impressive and I would say my lashes do look a bit longer then normal. Unfortunately in the picture I don't think this length is really that evident. As the mascara uses fibres in its formula it does from time to time cause itching when the fibres catch the eye.

I would say it's a reasonable product, but little things like the scratchy brush really let it down.

I'd give it a 3/5.

  • Does give a reasonable amount of lash length
  • Long brush to capture every lash
  • One of the first mascaras to encompass fibres without having to use two products
  • Scratches your eyes quite easily
  • Hard to get onto the bottom lashes
  • Fibres can be quite itchy 
Please don't believe you will get the lengths shown in the advertisement IT WONT HAPPEN!

Models Own: Green Grass Nail Varnish

Neon and pastel colours are really in this season so Models' Own Green Grass really has a chance on the fashion platform.

Like the name says the shade of this nail varnish is very much like grass (the healthy kind not the sun deprived yellow grass)

In the bottle it appears really strong so I was looking forward to seeing how it came out.

After one application the varnish appeared quite thin and transparent so I applied another coat on top. After two coats the colour is a lot stronger but certain parts of my nail are still quite see through. Unlike Models Own Purple Poppy this nail varnish needed around 3 coats to get a completely finished glossy look.

The nail varnish dried pretty quickly and I didn't find that the product was too gloopy.

 I'd give it a 3/5

  • Bright neon like colours are in this season
  • Can spice up a plain outfit
  • Dries quickly
  • Takes around 3 coats to get a finished look

 Accessorise with:

    Initially accessoring a green nail varnish might seem quite difficult but just remember a few simple tips.
  • Don't go overboard on green makeup, a green eyeshadow will do fine
  • Neutral colours like white go well with green
  • Green can also be used to spice up a plain outfit to give it a zing of colour

Models Own: Purple Poppy Nail Varnish

I have so many nail varnishes lined up to test it's unreal.

Models' Own in Purple Poppy is a mix of dark and light purple,  a colour that is really likely to stand out when applied.

The varnish doesn't come out too thick and it only really took one application and a quick touch up to completely paint my nails with no nail visiblity. I was quite surprised by how quickly it dried which means it's perfect for the going out process as you can slap it on then get on with the rest of your makeup.

The effect is really glossy purple stain.

As you're using so little this bottle will really go a long way saving you lots of pennies in the long run!

I'd give this 5/5!

  • Only needs 1 1/2 coats and you're done!
  • Dries really quickly
  • Lovely bright colour
  • Fantastic value for money
  • None!

The hip nail brand Urban Venus have launched a set of nail laquers

Hot on the nail scene is the brand new nail laquer from the hip brand Urban Venus.

The celebrity manicurist which has two salons in Calgary was recently voted one of the "top places to get your nails polished in North America." by Flare magazine.

The founder of Urban Venus, Rachel, has been in the development of spa products for the latest 15 years. In the early days she was ahead of the 'bath bomb' explosion, and was one of the first to create the fizzing bath bomb that was to become massively popular. As the years progressed so did Rachel's skills and portfolio, expanding out with delectable smells and products such as body washes, hand soaps and foot scrubs.

When Rachel opened her first Urban Venus shop it was immediatly sensationalised, winning accolades in National Magazines claiming it was the top place to get manicured. Since her instant success in the first opening of Urban Venus, Rachel went on to open a second location in Calgary and continues to extend her product range to add more beautifully formulated bath & spa products.

Her reputation and industry response has led to invitations to high profile events adding a long list of celebrities to her list. Urban Venus have polished the talons of the likes of Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Justin Beiber, Black Eyed Peas, New Kids on the Block and many more.

With quality at the forefront of her mind, all Urban Venus nail laquers are dbp, formaldehyde and toluene free, something that is very important to all technicians and customers. The current collection of nearly 50 colours choices include industry favourites such as reds, plums, pinks and sheers as well as statement colours like gold and teal. All the colours have fantastic pigmentation which ensures great coverage and durability. They go on really smooth and the application brush makes precision brush strokes effortless. Each product in the range is thoroughly thought out and named after times or events found in a womens agenda. Top examples include, '7.30 am in the buff is a sheer pink', '12.01 pm power lunch is a deep red', '3.30pm pick up the kids is a subdued pearly pink'.

New CId cosmetics I-Colour Cobalt Eyeshadow

New CId I-Colour in Cobalt is a deep royal blue eyeshadow that goes fantastic as evening wear makeup.

The packaging was a lot larger then I'd expect for a eyeshadow which gives the impression that the product will be very long lasting.

Initially from the look of the eyeshadow in the packaging I thought it was a powder eyeshadow but to my surprise it was actually a cream shadow. I'm not a huge fan of cream eyeshadows due to the fact that they come off so easily but every product deserves a chance to get a fair review.

The eyeshadow felt like mousse to the touch and it took a few attempts to get the eyeshadow fully on my eyelid as I felt the layering was too thin on the first application.

The overall effect of the eyeshadow is quite smooth and shiny but there is slight transparency as some of the product rubs off. I felt that the applied colour is also slightly deceiving as it is a lot lighter then it appears in the packaging. For a evening out the Colbat eyeshadow will go well with a coral pink lipgloss and subtle face makeup.

  • Good eyeshadow for a night out
  • Large container so the product will last a long time
  • Colour applies quite light
  • Even after several applications the eyeshadow is still very light

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation: Does it whip up a feeling of pleasure?

So I felt it was about time to test a new foundation and I'd heard good things about Maybelline's foundations so thought i'd give it a try.

The Maybelline Drema Satin Liquid foundation comes in a standard tube with a squirt releaser. I felt the method of releasing the foundation was a lot more effective then the typical screw top lids where sometimes too much foundation can come out at once. I squirted the product a couple of times onto the back of my hand and used a brush to apply it to my face.

I felt the colour match was pretty accurate and I wasn't left with any obvious orange/face-neck shades which are always extremely noticeable!

The packaging claims that the product has a air whip consistency that gives off a luminous air brushed glow. In my honest opinion Maybelline have done a pretty good job. I feel that every part of my face is the same colour and any blemishes are well hidden.

In regards to stayability if you rub your face before it has dried it will start to come off, as I found out when answering the phone soon after applying to find large streak marks left on the glass. I try to eliminate the chance of the product rubbing off as much as possible by applying a effective compact powder which helps to settle the foundation.

For the fact that it has brilliant coverage, a flawless look great colour matching and no streaks I'll give it a 5/5

You can find Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid foundation for around £6.99 here

  • Gives off a flawless look
  • Great coverage
  • Moderates the amount of product you use through its innovative lid
  • Great colour match
  • Wasn't made sooner!
