SEVENTEEN Blow Out Volumise Sculpt Tease Mascara

On our final day of the advent calendar we were very happy to receive a full size mascara from the brand SEVENTEEN. This mascara makes your lashes look double the thickness, its conditioning formula with vitamin E and Argan Oil helps to give body to your lashes and sets to give a long lasting lift.


The brush on this mascara is a big barrel, similar to the L’Oreal Scandal Eyes mascara, which coats every lash for bolder, sexier, volumised lashes. We recommend that you curl your eyelashes before you use this mascara as it will not curl your lashes without the added help.

This is the last post form our Boots advent calendar post collection so we hope that you have enjoyed what you have seen and we will see you again soon for some more beauty posts. If you have any requests for blog posts then leave a comment below and we will try our best to rustle up a review.

Also we hope that you are having a great Christmas eve and we wish you a merry Christmas for tomorrow :)

Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Backcomb In A Bottle 

This is no regular hair spray; this is a special hair spray that will give your hair extreme volume which is excellent if you have fine hair like us.  This spray is unsticky and easy to use, much like dry shampoo this product helps to build texture which in turn volumises your hair.


To use this product all you need to do is simply spray into the roots of your hair and use your fingers to create the exact amount of volume and texture that you are after. This is very easy and quick to do and the best thing is that it helps prevent damaged hair which is always a bonus.

Mavala Diamond Nail Polish

"Shine bright like a Diamond"....

This is the most expensive looking glittery diamond shades I have ever seen! I certainly hope this is never discontinued as it is amazing! 

A mini 5ml size is available from Boots for £4.30

Why not treat yourself and add a little sparkle to your life?

We think this will look great under the nails inc kate spade limited edition nail polish in Soho Silver.

Carmex Lip Balm Pot - Original

This has got to be the best lip balm EVER! It has a slightly medicinal scent, and doesn't particularly taste great but when it comes to dry chapped lips (Thanks Winter!) it is the best thing to restore your lips and give you back a pukka pout.

I haven't used on of these in years so was pleasantly surprised to see this but after the first use I can see why it is so popular and beats even high end balms at £30.00

While this is the original formulation I know there are various other combinations where that is in a tube or as a gel with different flavours and scents.

Have you ever tried any Carmex products? Why not give them a try?

Ghost The Fragrance

This is again another mini sample size of the original ghost fragrance. I know this is a favourite of most but for me it is a fragrance hate. 

"Ghost the Fragrance surrounds its wearer with an aura of sensuality and femininity. Ghost characterises the qualities that make women eternally feminine, sophisticated and graceful".

This scent has fragrance notes of Jasmine, Spicywood, Vanilla Musk and Apricot. It is available from Boots for 50mls at £33.50
