New Product Alert: Benefit Roller Lash



It's a cold Tuesday night and I'm being led towards the back of a lorry in a deserted car park. No this isn't the beginning of every slasher movie ever made, this is the top secret launch of a new Benefit Cosmetics product. 


Inside we are greeted with a much friendlier scenario. The truck is decorated as a cute kitschy salon as only Benefit could do. We are greeted with non-alcoholic wine, nibbles and the opportunity to coo over the awesome light fixtures. 

We're also surrounded by these giant brushes..




And then the penny drops!

Roller Lash is Benefits answer to the problem of How do you top the best selling Mascara in the world when you're the one that makes it?! Well you make it do everything it's older sister doesn't do!

So what does it promise?

• Specially designed curved brush with 2 types of bristles for both your upper and lower lashes. And no spikey ball.
• A new formula designed to increase the curl of even the straightest lashes! Because brush alone does not a curl make.
• Vitamin B enriched to nourish your lashes - let's face make up isn't always good for you, every little bit of extra nourishment always helps. 
• Easy to remove! Unlike its predecessor they promise that Roller Lash is super easy to remove. No more scrubbing late into the night. 



After a fab demonstration and presentation from the lovely Mark, lead makeup artist and self described "Voice of Benefit", we were able to mingle with the whole team, test out a number of their other new products and spend more time marvelling at the decor. 


Seriously though... These cusions!! 



As we left we were given goodie bags with both Roller Lash itself and Puff Off, an under eye cream released at the end of Jan. Super generous and in this class wee Makeup bag. Thankyou to everyone at Benefit Ireland for such a lovely evening!


So after a few days wear what am I thinking?



Well as you can clearly see it works. Ok my lashes aren't as super curly as you would get with a heated curler or some LVL extensions but there is a definite uplift and I can actually (weirdly?) feel the difference. No camera tricks here just me and my iPhone 6 cam taking stealthy photos in work on an otherwise makeup free face. 

Sold on it yet? I am. 

Roller Lash hits stores on February 28th. Set your reminders now!

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted!  We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you". Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious groun

Faeriwood Eats: Six By Nico Belfast Review

Nico, surveying his diners Six By Nico . A new concept restaurant for Belfast, and a welcome addition to the cathedral quarter, brought to us from Edinburgh and Glasgow.  6 courses rotating every 6 weeks for only 28.00 and you’re going to want to keep up with them because once they’re gone, they’re gone. With themes such as Vietnamese street food and Parisien cuisine, even a Disney theme being featured in their past menus I am looking forward to seeing what Nico and his team will come up with for Belfast. From talking to them though I found out that their first 3 menus will be inspired by Northern Ireland itself and with some of the best produce in the world and one of the most interesting cultures and histories that will be something to see!  First up is their debut menu, inspired by the humble chip shop, The Chippie menu takes the old standards and modernises them to levels you may be more used to seeing in Michelin level restaurants but with a very un-Michelin price poi

Shazam! Movie Review

I’m living in a world where I’m still excited after coming out of a DC movie and, honestly, it’s about damn time! Having been frustrated with the recent Aquaman and Wonder Woman movies who were supposed to be game changers for DC but ended up delivering nothing but clichéd tropes, lazy joke writing, laughable CGI; albeit with a slightly lighter tone than their usual dark and dreary aesthetic. I was nervous about Shazam but ready to accept my usual “It’s a good mindless watch but needs more fun” opinion. For the most part my normal quibbles have been ironed out and the fun is plentiful! Shazam is packed full of genuinely funny jokes, there are true surprises in the story which, unless you’ve read the comics, you would have no clue from any of the promotional materials. Zachary Levi, who has long been one of my favourite cult/nerdy actors, brings his usual charisma and charm to the role and you have no issue believing that this is a 15 year old kid who is stoked to have these life chan
