Backcombing Giving You a Headache? I Present the Denman Teasing Comb :)

teasing comb

 

What is it?

A comb specifically for ‘teasing’ the hair (generally at the roots) to add volume.

 

The Review

What is not to like? If you have ever tried to tease your hair with anything but a teasing comb, you will know that it hurts, it’s messy and generally really not a very good idea …

This comb, however, allows you to tease gently whilst achieving lots of volume (depending on how much you tease your hair of course). You can achieve varying levels of volume with ease and it’s gentler on your head and hair than trying to use a normal comb.

The handle is a nice width and the pointed end allow your to section your hair in a straight line simply by wiggling the pointed end in the direction you want to part it. Easy peasy! No pain, no tugging and these combs are under £5.

I don’t tease my hair very often but this is a joy to use if I’m having a flat day or want a a bigger up do.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers

What are they?

Longer lasting sort of ‘liquid lipsticks’… Gorgeous.

 

The Review:

There are 8 shades in the collection ranging from nude to bright vivid red. There is definitely something for everyone and there are some great wearable every days pinks too. The packaging is lovely and you can see the product in the tube which is fantastic!

Application is a dream with a doe foot like applicator with a twist – the product collects in a little hollow in the applicator (see the above picture). Genius! You can use the colour straight like that for the full on gorgeously pigmented colour or wipe it off a little for a more natural colour. They apply with a gloss like shine and then settle to a subtle sheen.

The pigmentation is beautiful, colour range is fantastic and the the product is long lasting – perfect for night out, especially as the colours don’t bleed at all. An added bonus is that they are so comfortable to wear, they don’t dry my lips out like some other long lasting lippies I’ve tried. Can’t fault them!

Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Eyeliners

image

 

What Are They?

Glitter gel eyeliners to add a bit of sparkle to your look.

 

The Review:

I originally bought the silver colour for my auntie as she was going to a silver themed party. As she didn’t use it, she gave it back to me so I decided to put it on over the liner I already had and it looked so pretty!

The first thing I noticed is the nice, fine brush on the applicator, it made applying the product easy and went on nice and neatly. The second thing I noticed was how pigmented the liner was.

My past experiences with other high street brands of glitter liners have not been very positive as I find that you get a lot of clear gel liner and perhaps a few specs of glitter – hardly the lovely solid glitter line you buy the product for.

These liners however, are beautifully pigmented and give you the full line of glitter. Not only this but it lasts a long time too and after wearing it a few more times, it easily lasts a good 6/7 hours on me.

Anything past that I cannot comment on as I haven’t worn it for longer but it looked exactly same as when first applied after that length of time, AND, without any glittery fallout falling onto my face.

The colour range is great and I now have 4 shades, a silver (Hustle) , a gold (Funk), a black and silver (Rock Chick) and a bright purpley blue (Shake It Up!).

Here are the colours swatched for you

Worth the Money?

These retail for an amazing £2.99 each and are readily available on the highstreet in places like Superdrug and Boots.

If you ask me, these are an absolute bargain and so pretty on the eyes.  Affordable, gorgeous, readily available and an excellent shade range – what’s not to like?

You can also find these dazzling liners on the Collection website:

Revlon Liquid Quick Dry

 

 

What is it?

A liquid, brush on oil that dries wet nails in less than a couple of minutes.

 

The Review

This product is a life saver for me, I like to paint my nails but I’m also very impatient when it comes to letting them dry for long enough. It’s easy to use and absolutely amazing!

Just paint your nails as usual and apply your top coat, allow this dry for about 30secs just so it’s not super wet and lightly brush on the Liquid Quick Dry.

This is a a runny liquid as it’s a fairly thin oil so you do not need to really push the brush as you brush on the product. I find that roughly three, quick, light strokes coats the nail and after about 90secs it’s completely dry and has no effect on the polish’s ‘natural’ finish.

 

Worth the Money?

A nail technician at a photoshoot the other week used it on me so of course, if it’s good enough for a pro then this stuff definitely is worth the money!

It works really well and is hardly an investment buy at £6.49 – compared to some of the other ones out there from brands such as OPI it’s an absolute bargain.

This product is widely available on the highstreet from places such as Boots and Superdrug and most larger chain supermarket with a make up section:
