The Eyelash Duo

Fully aware I've still been slacking a little on the blogging front, I'm back and devoted. It's my aim to get up at least 4 - 5 posts in a week, and due to my hectic work life, doing overtime hours and spending time with friends (yet another thing I've been slacking on) I've decided that scheduling will be my best friend. 

This lovely Sunday I thought I'd share with you my current eyelash duo. As I'm still getting the hang of eyeshadow and blending and certainly don't want to embarrass myself at my new job I've been reaching more for the huge eyelash jobby sans clumps and smudging. The two I've been reaching for are Maybelline's The Rocket and Benefit's Bad Gal Lash, which may be surprising as the vast majority of beauty bloggers everywhere have some sort of ode to They're Real!

I apply Bad Gal first. The brush is absolutely massive and furry, unlike most of the mascaras I own. This gives amazing length and volume, although doesn't quite do it for me on it's own. That's where The Rocket comes in. Plastic in brush form but still absolutely massive, it adds absolutely incredible volume and really gets rid of the need for anything fancy around the eyelid area. As the brushes are so ridiculously huge even with the two coats it's done really quickly. A smudge of my favourite black or brown eyeliner and I'm pretty much done. 


  1. I've never tried mixing two mascaras like that, it's a great idea though! x

  2. Hello! I love your blog and your posts are so good! I'm a new blogger and would love it if you could check out my blog and maybe give it a follow? :) x

  3. I'm here!! Ha.

    I love Maybelline mascara, just for the packaging alone! I am not a fan of They're Real, it was a waste of £18 and did nothing special for my poor lashes at all, even though loads of people rave about it. I went back to Maybelline!
