Blinc Mascara Review

Well I first heard about this mascara from a lovely Cornish Make up artist called Penny Pascoe and after hearing about how great it was from her I just had to give it a try.

I am a devout user of Bourjois Liner effect mascara and over the years I have tried many different ones and with no success. Iv not found anything even close to it.
Now Blinc mascara is more expensive and at £18.50 it not the most comfortable on the guilt scale but trust me it is worth it. The best thing though is that you do not need to take that plunge as they do the perfect trial sized mascara so that you can try before you buy at a price that wont give your accountant a heart attack.
£2.56 Trial sized with Free Postage
Now the idea is that instead of coating the lashes with gloppy product this mascara goes on lightly to form a tube of product around your individual lashes.
This means it is FULLY waterproof, you can cry, rub and even try removing it with make up remover with no success.
The secret is a bit of warm water. Using the warm water dip you fingers into the water and then press against your closed eye lids. Then re dip and this time squeeze the lashes between your finger, roll them a little and then lightly pull down. It will look like you are pulling your own lashes out but rest assured you are not. It is just the tubes of product coming away and leaving your lashes perfectly intact underneath.

Flying the flag for Angel Face

Ok, ok so I know that it is no big secret that I am a massive fan of Angel Face Mineral Make up and the virtues that it stands for and seeing as it has been a while since i shared a blog post with you all i thought that banging on about this amazing paraben free make up and its achievements over the last few months would be a great place to re start.

So recently Julie (co founder of AF) and I went up to London to China Town to do Hair and make up for a Chinese New years eve fashion show.
While at this event we met a catwalk choreographer who was so impressed with our work that he wanted us to attend and do hair and make up for a London fashion week show.
Sadly I had a wedding booked in that day so could not attend but Julie and another very talented hairdresser linked to Angel Face and also called Julie (Levick Cuts Hair and beauty salon) made the trip to London on the train and set about the massive task of getting the models ready to strut their stuff.
They got to do hair and make up for the international super model Harriadnie Beau Phipps.

They are a make up company with a difference as they are full of drive, determination and ambition. Their customers and quality of their products are the most important thing.

The company was set up after Julie gave birth to her second son Ben. Sadly Ben was born sleeping and Julie faced one of the toughest times of her life. She ploughed herself into work and into building what today is a very successful business. Finally the 3rd member Pauline joined Angel Face. Pauline is a breast cancer survivor and set up Bosom Buddies a breast cancer charity and was supportive of the paraben free products after links between parabens and breast cancer have come to light. 10p of each item bought through Angel Face is donated to the charity.

So get in there now and support a great business, set up through a dream and powered through love and hard work and in support of an amazing charity.
