REVIEW: Herorine Make- Volume & Curl Mascara Waterproof

There's this massive hype for Asian mascaras because apparently they bewitch those stubborn eyelashes that only grow straight down and it seems that down, is the only way they want go. They also claim to make the lashes curl and flutter like little fairies but do they know how to fulfill my greatest lash desires?

As I went into the shop I was overwhelmed with an array of different mascaras all claiming to do wondrous things to your lashes. So I called my Auntie who works at Sasa in HK and she recommended this therefore in my shopping basket it goes. Who am I to question a person who works in beauty?

The packaging of this product was so cute. Despite not being able to read anything on the package, I can say the animation of the girl with her luscious lashes was my eyelash role model. In terms of the mascara tube it was a basic black sleek tube with the name printed in swirly silver writing. The tube was surprisingly small when compared with my other mascaras tubes from brands like Maxfactor and Maybelline. This means that you can just pop it into your bag without taking too much space.

It's been a while since I've used one of these wands. Over the past year I see myself gravitating towards the plastic wands because I like how they coat every single one of my lashes. I was a bit skeptical about this wand. I mean, look how ordinary it is. I was proved wrong and I have been converted back to using these types of wands. It creates a natural look and it doesn't look tacky no matter how many times I have applied this.  

This picture shows my lashes after 1 coat of mascara and a clamp from the lash curler. I was very impressed with how my lashes curled upwards, even after 5 hours of the original application. It does definitely help with the curl so it's ideal if you have difficulty with your stubborn lashes which need curling.
One of the cons of this mascara is that it takes ages to remove. Normally I just use makeup wipes and a little of  The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye makeup Remover to remove any lingering bits. However with this mascara, I had to use my Lancome Bi-Facil Makeup Remover which is seriously a heavy duty makeup remover. It definitely lives up to it's name of being super waterproof. 

Overall I really like this mascara since it does wonders to my lashes however I wouldn't be using it on a daily basis because I have very little patience whilst removing makeup so the quicker the better. 

Have you ever tried Super Waterproof Mascara? 

What I really thought about prom

This short post will tell you about my experience at prom and what I really thought about it.

Prom is an event which will cloud the thoughts of a majority of students who are graduating. It commemorates the end and also new beginnings. Behind the facade of glamour and extravagant dresses it truly is a bittersweet event.

The location where I had my prom was breathtaking. The prom committee decided that the location would be very photographic therefore we had our prom at a barn, It looked like one of Taylor Swifts' music sets.

Getting ready- An Olympic Sport?

How long does it take you to get ready for a special event? Months, weeks, hours or just a matter of minutes. If you are one of the few who get's ready in minutes, you deserve a big pat on the back.

Foreign yet familiar faces surround me. Everybody looked like princesses. You can clearly see how much effort everybody has made to make sure they looked and feel great in what they were wearing.

The varying colours of dresses were amazing. The different shades of purples and blues made it seem like I was part of a carnival.

You don't need to pile on loads of makeup to make yourself look good. Smiles are the best makeup of all. So embrace those teeth.

Here are a few of my friends who I had the pleasure to take photos with. At this point I can say some are becoming blog regulars.

Do not mess with my food
Upon reflection I do think the tickets were a tad expensive- approximately the tickets were around £35 per head. That night after my prom I slept over my friends and I could hear a distant rumble when I started this at 6 am in the morning. Sucks to be the first one to wake up. The location promised a buffet, did we get a buffet?  A measly selection of food. Clearly, they have the wrong definition of 'buffet' cause it was a pathetic buffet.

If you go to a fancy event, please eat before you go, by no means do I mean that you should have a massive feast like a bear right before a hibernation but a fulfilling meal.

Take photos early 
I know people might think that you are a bit annoying when you keep hounding them for photos but it's really worth it.

The dark lighting is not as flattering as the natural light and the shadows casted can draw away from the picture. Also I assume very few people want to look back at photos and see that you're a sweaty mess from dancing.

Instead of having hundreds of selfies, it's nice to have a few full length photos. I'm sure if you ask anybody they would be understanding and help you take it, if needed you can also return the favour.

What was your experience of  prom or any fancy events that you have been to?

What's In My Prom Clutch

It's prom season and out comes the clutches. Being a first time clutch user I had no idea how much you could fit in this sleek bag and apparently not a lot. If the clutch was secretly Mary Poppins bag, it would have been so much easier. So gather all your necessities and off we go.

First and Foremost I packed my prom ticket which will let you into the event. The night before, I had to search for my ticket in my messy room and thank god I found it otherwise I wouldn't be allowed in!

Next thing in my clutch is my phone- I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It takes up a significant space therefore I can't fit my usual purse into my clutch, I had to compromise and just put some notes inside my phone case because that phone goes with me everywhere because I go on social media and take some kick ass pictures with my friends, so it would be convenient and it would be in a secure place.

It seems that I'm going in order of importance, one thing that I always take with me is some hayfever tablets because normally I have them as soon as I wake up and since prom was in the evening at a barn, I was worried that my eyes may tear up and become a snotty mess. Nobody likes being a snotty mes- unless you're a baby which can be considered 'cute'.

Lastly in my clutch is some makeup that I may need during the night. I decided to put my Mac studio perfect foundation to keep the shine off my face and my new Soap & glory Sexy Motherpucker in Rapunzel. It's a gorgeous glossy pink plum colour and smells just like cupcakes which makes me want to eat it everytime I apply it.

Are you the type of person who likes a neat organised purse or  the type of person who stuffs everything and anything into your handbag?

Wall revamp

Plain white walls can look so boring and bare. I decided to add a bit of character and flare to the dull looking walls around my desk, in hope that it will make my desk space a happier and possibly an inspirational place.

I got a majority of these postcards from Paperchase and many of them were on offer at 30p per card but normally they are priced at 60p per card.  I absolutely adore the 'Meow do you do?' post card, it's cute, witty and a cat- A winning combination.

The 2 postcards at the bottom are from trips that I have been on so you can remember some of the fun times you had. On the left is a postcard from PGL in 2011 and on the right is a postcard from Universal Studios in Singapore.

It's a fun activity to scour shops for some postcards or some cute prints, it's like you're a Pirate looking for treasure. Every time you visit some place new, buy a post card and before you know it you will have a wall full of memories and fun.

Do any of you collect objects  to add to your growing collection?
