2true Mascara | Review

Recently 2True launched their new website to bring affordable Cosmetics to the UK. 2True have products with prices starting from £1.99 meaning they fit anyone's budget.

Today I have two of their mascaras, the 2True Pro Flasheyes mascara*£2.99 and the 2True WOW Mascara* £2.99

Firstly, usually when it comes to more 'affordable' brands the range of each product tends to be very small, however 2True have over 10 different Mascaras in their range to suit every need which is great!

If you have read any of my previous posts where I talk about mascara, you will know that I don't usually get on with usual mascara and tend to opt for waterproof! Being sceptical of that when I first tried these Mascaras I found that they held a curl whilst lengthening and thinking lashes which is just what I look for in a mascara! 
Also neither mascara flake or smudge meaning my lashes look the same at the end of the day as they did at the start! 

The whole range of 2True products can be found at and until the end of August you can get 10% off using the code: X00418 
Or at online at and instore.

Makeup Routine | Updated

Recently I was thinking about my blog and realised that this time last year, I had posted my 'Makeup Routine' (which can be found here). Since then some of the products I use have changed, some are the same and some, completely new! 

In this post I will be sharing the products I use on a daily basis and how I apply them! 

After applying my Vivo Primer all over my face, concentrating on my T-zone, I go on to apply foundation. Recently I have been loving the L'Oreal True Match Foundation £9.99, it leaves a natural look/finish to my skin, it's light weight and super blend able, I apply it with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush.
Next I like to conceal underneath my eyes and have been using the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19 for a while now, using it in the colour 'light' helps to brighten under my eyes whilst it conceals. I like to use my finger to blend the product in, as I've found this works best for me.
Finally to set my foundation and concealer in place, I tend to use my Collection Sheer Loose Powder £2.99. I think this works best with oily skin for me and I use this with my Primark Powder Brush.  


Foundation can leave me face looking flat and lifeless, to bring it back to life I like to use bronzer and blush. 

The bronzer I use is the 2True All Over Natural Bronzing Powder £2.29. I simply apply some to the areas of my face that the sun would naturally hit using my Real Techniques Contour Brush.
The blush I use is the Makeup Revolution Blush £1, for only one pound it's so affordable for everyday where, the picture shows the blush in the shade 'Treat' which is a lovely pink/coral shade and I apply it with my Technic Blush Brush. I use a powder blush and bronzer because they work best with oily skin which I have.


I have naturally light eyebrows, so adding colour and defining them is an important part in my everyday makeup for me.
The two products I use for my eyebrows are both from Make Up Academy (MUA) and they are the Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde £1 and the Eyebrow Mascara in Fair £2. I use the pencil to outline the shape of my brows then use the mascara to add the colour and definition. I find that the most important thing when using a pencil, is to keep brushing your brows, for the most natural finish.

Finishing touches: 
To finish my makeup and bring it all together I use mascara and lip balm. My favourite mascara, as it's the only one that I find holds a curl is the Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara in Waterproof £7.99. I always use eyelash curlers before applying as it adds a curl to my lashes and improves the look of them.
The final thing I do is apply a layer of my Carmex Moistrising Lip Balm £2.69 to soothe and moisturise my lips!

I hope you liked this post! Do you use any of these products for your everyday makeup?

Magnitone Lucid - Cleansing Brush | Review + Discount Code!

If you read my Slendertoxtea Review, which you can find here, you will know that last month I look part in the #BHTWITERPARTY where there were some great brands ready to give bloggers some of their products! 
As well as the Slendertoxtea, I was kindly sent a Magnitone Lucid -face cleaning brush* £69.99

'Magnitone cleansing and exfoliating brushes offer the latest in deep cleansing innovation', 'uses gentle sonic vibrations to dislodge blackheads and whisk away dead skin cells' and 'promise softer, brighter and clearer skin in 7 days' which I have been putting to the test! 

The cleansing brush is easy to use and incorporate into your usual skincare routine. The brush has a built in timer meaning your skin doesn't get over exfoliated and two settings, deep clean and sensitive to suit different skin types. 

Before using the cleansing brush for 7 days, my skin was dry, looked dull and felt bumpy from small spots and blackheads. After the first day or two my skin did have more spots than what i started with but this was due to the impurities being removed from my skin however after a week my skin looks fresher, feels smoother and I actually look forward to washing my face! 

The brush is fully water proof so can be used in the shower and comes with a normal and travel adapter so can be easily taken on holiday with you and come in pink, blue, green and blue!

If you are looking to upgrade your skincare to a Magnitone Lucid face cleansing brush I have a 20% discount code for you! 
Simply click on this link: and use the code... BLOVE20 to receive your 20% discount! (Valid until July 31st,2015)
