Get a Danni Minogue Model Co Makeup box for only £11.99

I got the shock of my life today when I received a email from Halfprice perfumes

The makeup company Model Co are actually retailing a very small Danni Minogue themed makeup set for £120 ! Yes you read correctly. All the packaging contains is a trio eyeshadow, double lipstick and lipgloss, eyeliner and bronzer. All of which you could get from Natural collection at Boots for around £15.

But...good news is at hand, halfprice perfumes have a limited number of the makeup sets reduced from a hefty £120 to only £11.99. Now that's a price tag I can swallow.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Show Off Mascara

Rimmel's innovative new mascara Scandaleyes Showoff uses a flat and ball brush to add defined volume, lift and length. The dual nature of the brush allows the user to build up real volume without clumping by using the flat end of the brush to plump lashes whilst the ball lifts and defines.

The new shaped brush was a new development for the cheaper side of the makeup market and I was eager to see what effects it would have. The mascara went on really easily and it was quick to build up volume without clumping at all. I can't really say my lashes were really lifted anymore then a traditional mascara  but they were definitely defined and volumised.

Coming in a bright purple tube the mascara was certainly eye catching, but very bulky and quite difficult to stand up on its own.

The product is great value for what it achieves and the little novely of a dual brush really adds a little something to it. I'd give it a 4/5

  • Interesting new dual brush feature
  • Has the ability to really define your lashes and add volume without clumping
  • Great highstreet prices
  • I can't really say my lashes were any curlier after using this product
  • There were no lengthening elements

What's in Glossy Box June?

Being a big fan of Carmine beauty boxes I was massively saddened when they decided to join forces with Glossybox. So of course I was expecting a lot of GB with two great beauty samplers working together. I have to say GB just doesn't live up to Carmine. The samples are small, the box is so much smaller and the products mass worth is nowhere near what Carmine's was.

Inside June's box there was:

  1. A Glossybox serie Exclusiv Pro beauty brush with natural goat hair to give a supersoft makeup application
  2. MeMeMe Sensous nail gloss in this seasons key catwalk peach gloss
  3. BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer. This little pot of bronzer is perfect for adding a summer glow to your face. Shame the sample GB pot is so small!
  4. Caudalie Eaux Faiches perfume. A energising and invigorating fragrance. My perfume happened to be broken completely with glass all over the box, and according to the Glossybox news feed it has happened to others as well.
  5. Vichy Dermablend Ultra corrective Foundation Cream Stick which is perfect for camoflauging minor to severe skin flaws. The product received in the GB box is just a sample set of foundation not full size like the Glossy box leaflet implies.

All in all not the best and I think i'll probably be switching over to a company with better products to give subscribers.

Pout Wars

When it comes to what you put on your lips everyone has a preference. Some people love the glamour lipstick can give whilst others prefer the subtlety of a tinted lip balm. Now that we have the pleasure of coloured balm, choosing the simple or the sleek is made that much more simple but the question still lies...

So whose team do you bat for?

Team Lipstick
Lipsticks are perfect if you love the matte, perfectly finished look. Remember to apply a lipbalm at night so your lips don't dry out when you're applying your lippie in the morning.
  • Don't forget lipstick is not a option for the low maintenance girl. With the strong colours that lipstick comes in you'll find that the smallest of flaws can be exposed by imperfect pout. Every glamourpuss requires a bit of commitment.
Team Tinted Lip Balm
Tinted lip balms are perfect if you just want a quick burst of colour. Lip balm is quite low maintenance so you won't be creating any wow power pouts. 
  • Unlike lipstick, with a lip balm lip liners and blotting are a big NO NO. Lip balm is perfect for that just thrown on, unstructured look, so if you're putting on lip liner it will be quite a strange contrast.

Get a Maybelline lipgloss for only 1p! (Yes i'm being serious!)

It's not often you see offers of makeup for only 1p, not even at a bootfair would you snap up a makeup bargain for that cheap!

Halfprice perfumes are giving you the chance to buy a brand new top quality lipgloss for only 1p.

You can get the gloss in six gorgeous shades;Mocca Latte, Passing by Pink, Rose Rapture, Perfectly Peach, Pink Princess and Sheer Pink Gloss.

All you have to do is pay the postage and you'll be the proud owner of a smart new lip gloss.

Get younger in no time with L'Oreal Revitalift (and save loads on RRP at the same time!)

L'Oreal have gone one step further in their efforts to make you younger. Their L'Oreal Revitalift product uses a unique two step facial massage and facial care system to contour the skin on your face. The massage rollers create 40 points of pressure with every stroke to stimulate and lift the skin.

After massaging the cream gets to work by tighening and toning your sensitive facial skin. Skin ends up looking smother and more toned.

Revitalift is currently on sale in Boots for £16.99 but at Halfpriceperfumes you can get it for a very small price of £5.99

Jemma Kidd: I Glamour Volume Mascara

Coming from the Jemma Kidd makeup range I was expecting a lot from this mascara.

It comes in a simple black tube with the Jemma Kidd lettering on the lid. The wand is a pretty average sized plastic applicator with a simple brush. I had to apply the mascara several times to my top lashes and I wouldn't have said there was much volume added to them.

I found that this mascara applies very literally and does not really adhere to the lashes. What I mean by this is when removing it it's very easy to remove and in that sense is not very waterproof. On several occasions I had many black streaks left by this mascara when it got slightly damp.

On this basis I would say that the mascara doesn't live up to the standards I thought it would having the Jemma Kidd name which is a huge disappointment to me.

I'd give it 1/5

  • You can get it free with Red magazine!
  • Doesn't really do what it claims to do on the packaging
  • Streaks easily
