Introducing AVON’s SuperMagnify mascara, a new formula which coats each lash with precision ensuring your lashes look elongated all day long!

The water proof solution wraps around each individual lash for up to 600% more volume. The smooth glide formula containing micro beads allows the lashes to bounce off one another so flakes and clumps are not an issue. The mascara wand features a 1000 bristle brush to your whole lash is covered, leaving no lashes untouched.

I received this mascara a few days ago and for someone who is very picky when it comes down to her mascara’s I was VERY impressed with this one. I have very long, thick and full eyelashes so I need a mascara that is not too clumpy, something that lengthens my lashes and lasts all day long.

I had to compare this mascara with one that I was currently using,  I dressed one lash with my old mascara and one lash with the SuperMagnify, there was a vast different, the SuperMagnify dressed my lashes perfectly, elongating every strand of hair,t hey looked so pretty and chique whereas the other side looked clumpy and flaky. The one thing I did notice with the SuperMagnify is that I need to brush the lashes a few times to get them dark enough the formula could do with being a little darker with a slight thickness just to give the lashes a more fuller look but other than that this mascara scores top marks for me.

Try it out ladies and let me know how you get on

Ciaté is a new British brand founded and developed by celebrity manicurist Charlotte Straughan. Charlotte’s many years experience on the catwalk and In salon has given her the know how on how to develop a Nail paint that works and lasts. Having already launched ‘ciaté feet treats’ and ‘Manicure must haves’ they have now introduced a fabulous range of Nail polishes called ‘Ciaté paint pots’ in 35 amazing colours.

Ciaté paint pots feature a unique optimum 250 flat bristle brush giving you an even, neat and precise finish.

I’ve been wearing ‘Mistress’ from the ‘Reds’ range and have to agree that the brush does leave you with a very neat finish. The nail looks smooth and brush stroke free, leaving my nails looking sexy and smooth.

Being a hygiene freak I tend to wash my hands a numerous amount of times throughout the day. Most nail enamels I apply chip on the very first day of application after my excessive hand washing but Ciaté paint pots didn’t chip at  all. I also swim twice a week and chlorine wreaks havoc on my manicure but the colour did not fade or chip, it passed the chlorine test with flying colours. I noticed the first signs of chips on the 5th day, for me this is amazing results. The only downer I found was that the varnish itself is very thin, after two applications I could still see my nail underneath so a third layer had to be applied.

Check out the Ciaté paint pots (£9) at www.ciate.co.uk, they really do have some mouth watering colours. Let me know what colours are your faves ladies 🙂
