The One That Vibrates...Estee Lauder TurboLash All Effects Mascara

The Estee Lauder TurboLash All Effects Mascara Review
Estee Lauder TurboLash All Effects Mascara Wand

Well. If there was ever something to give you a heart/make you think you've gone crazy it would be this Estee Lauder mascara. And you want to know why? It vibrated in my hand. Yes, like a erm, toothbrush. And no I didn't know it did this, hence my shock when I unwrapped this and pulled out the wand, to find this unusual gimmick. Not one I was expecting from a normally 'safe' brand like Estee Lauder. So let me explain this first vibrating object to make it on my blog, somewhat unsurprisingly. 

Its the handle on the TurboLash mascara that actually vibrates, so as you apply it is supposed to mimic the movement moving your wand back and fourth (seriously, how quick do they think our hands move?), which we all know adds extra volume to lashes.

In order to turn this on you just twist the cap out and pull the wand out. It begins vibrating almost as soon as you twist the upper cap off and vibrates straight through application. Slide the wand back into the tube, twist shut, and the vibrations stop. Simple. 

You know how much I hate gimmicks, and I am forever telling myself I will not fall for such marketing....but I have. I got some incredible length with TurboLash compared to some other mascaras I used, and was able to build up some serious volume to my lashes which gave me that false lash look that I always crave. The brush itself is a full bushy brush that somehow grabs every lash, even while vibrating, and doesn't hurt my eye which was my greatest fear. I have serious images of me sitting in A&E with a mascara wand related emergency. My lash results are just what I expected from Estee Lauder, and even this is a bit pricey and gimmicky, oh I do love it. Maybe this just isn't one to pull out in the ladies toilets...

Estee Lauder makeup range on includes Turbolash All Effects Motion Mascara (£32)

I have more silver tubbed goodness. Remember the Freedom Makeup Pro Studio Priming Water? Well there is a entire range for me to get through it seems. But then Freedom hardly break the bank so I am all over these little bottles.

The Freedom Pro Studio Dramatic Sensitive Eye Makeup Remover (£5) was the first bottle I got my hands on and was keen to try, as erm I don't still use makeup wipes for my mascara or anything, and it didn't disappoint. I was wary as my eyes can be a bit precious (and obviously my justification for still using wipes) but luckily it lived up to its sensitive name sake and didn't irritate at all, and just managed to remove my mascara masses. Eye makeup remover does still make a lot of mess in comparison to wipes for me, so I will keep this ready for nights when I have a bit more time on my hand I reckon.

One thing I have, and will be, using daily is the Freedom Pro Studio Glow Tonic, which frankly beats all these high end versions I've tried. This exfoliating toner has worked its magic and has evened my skins appearance and has left me with clearer, brighter more glowing complexion (at least I like to think so.) I can't seem to find it on Freedoms website to buy separately which is a huge shame as this is one bottle of theirs you need, especially if you're a fan of smoother and softer more radiant skin while keeping a few spare pounds in your purse.

Lastly, is one item you can buy, and should buy, in the form of the Freedom Pro Studio Moisture Cream (£7). Even more so if you like the scent of marzipan, which this does perfectly. I'm not entirely sure if that was the intended idea with this line, but being a sweet smell sucker I am not going to question a thing. But does it actually do the job? Does a cream for under £10 really work on my super dry and sensitive skin? In a word, yes. Perhaps my skin is having a good month as normally budget creams and me don't get along, but I do think that this cream really keeps my skin hydrated and I have had my skin left so soft, so smooth and just on good form.

Instagram Diary: Part Thirteen

Being Friday 13th on Friday (observant of me I know), I thought it was meant to be that my thirteenth Instagram diary happened at the same time. Well a few days late but it took a that long to click. Since last week I have in fact become fake tan mitt famous (thank you Cocoa Brown), spent too much time loitering around bath bombs again and starting thinking about my Christmas decorations. To be fair, the last one isn't my fault as I can blame shops for selling them too early, and yes I should I more self restraint....but when things are this white and sparkly its just not my fault. Its human nature, and I can't beat science now can I?
