A Telescopic Lash Explosion?

Freebies are awesome! I signed up for Loreal’s Absolutely VIP (strictly to score some discounts on my current hair colour of choice) and was sent a full sized tube of Telescopic Explosion Mascara.

This little tube sells for about €12 (in store) & promises “A spectacular fanned-out effect, for voluminous and beautifully lengthened looking lashes.”  Let’s give it a whirl…

Thinning on top? Get Blading!

This one’s for the dudes…

Is your hairline escaping from your forehead? Are you tired of people snickering at your ridiculous comb over? (seriously…you’re not fooling anyone) Then it’s time to finally get rid of your sparse wisps & embrace your baldness! (& it’s waaaaaay sexier than an insanely low side-part)

My hubs has been shaving his head since 2004 & although he’s tried every fuzz slicing product available he’s never been truly happy with his hairless melon until now…

Clinique Black Honey…is it really flattering for all?

I’ve been looking for an everyday lipstick for awhile & after reading about the virtues of Clinique’s Black Honey Almost Lipstick decided to give it try…

I’m a bit of a cheapbastard when it comes to…well, anything really…so naturally I searched for the best deal I could find. In store this almost lipstick goes for €26.50…eek! Having never spent more than a fiver on lip colour I knew with a bit of perserverance I could get it for a (bit of a) steal…and I did, saving over €10, from the Netherlands! €15.99 (including shipping) is still a pretty penny for a little tube of lipstick, was it worth it?
