Ardell is the best affordable false eyelash brand on the market. The brand have a crazy amount of styles - ranging from natural to fashion forward - and each one blends in with natural lashes seamlessly. However the best thing about Ardell lashes is that they are very easy to apply. The bands are thin, flexible and soft, so they mould around the eyelid easily and, if glued correctly, stay put for a long time.
If you struggle applying false eyelashes, I can't recommend trying Ardell lashes enough. Wispies are my favourite of all the brand's styles, look at how gorgeous they are!!
Rodial, the brand famous for surgery-mimicking skincare, launched an amazing makeup range a couple of months ago. The new collection features just about every product you need to get glam, however one of my favourite products is the Glamolash Mascara XXL. This mascara creates amazing volume with only a few strokes and the lashes stay luscious until this magical mascara is removed. The wand is quite big and bushy and it combs through lashes easily, helping to separate them and avoid clumping. It is one of the best mascaras I have used in a long time. I am in love.

This Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Luminous Lip Gloss in Sweet Pink is fast becoming a handbag essential. I'm not a big lip gloss fan as I often find them sticky and uncomfortable to wear, however this one feels more like a balm than a traditional sticky gloss. This is due to the inclusion of mango and shea butter, two ingredients that help to nourish the lips and keep them cushiony soft.
The lip gloss is vanilla scented and features a handy mirror on the side of the tube. It is also is equipped with a big, spongy applicator that evenly dispenses the perfect amount of product.
Now the colour is a gorgeous soft pink and it's quite transparent when applied, which I love. However, if you want more of an opaque colour, I would recommend priming the lips with concealer before applying the gloss. This high-shine gloss is also packed with tiny gold speckles, which helps to give an appearance of fuller lips.
