Beauty Finds: Milk Makeup, Kush Waterproof Mascara Review

Welcome to Beauty Finds! This edition features Milk Makeup Kush Waterproof Mascara. 

My go to mascara is Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara + Lash Primer. Clean ingredients, doesn’t irritate my eyes, equals out liquid eyeliner so my lashes don’t lost with the eyeliner. I have to separate them with an eyelash comb yet it gives my lashes, length, volume and definition I want. It however, isn’t waterproof for shit.

Rainproof yes, submerged in water swimming no. It isn’t even mist proof! Walking in the mist earlier this year my eyelashes felt wet and like something was heavy on them. A mirror check confirmed that the lashes were clumping together and the start of panda eyes!

After trying several waterproof mascaras and not liking how they don’t give the length and volume I like, or were so hard to remove last year, I remembered in my make up drawer from the year before I had a Milk Makeup mascara unused. It was stock up purchase only to find another mascara I liked, Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara. I decided instead to to experiment with it being the top coat of mascara to seal the mascara I liked underneath. Did it work? Read on for my Beauty Finds requirements or skip a paragraph straight for the review.

Weekend Friday Favourites, YouTube Edition

Weekend Friday Favourites is back! With a twist. YouTube and Internet finds!

When I should have been blogging the past few weeks I’ve been in a trance like state in the evenings watching YouTube, getting lost Alice in Wonderland style down internet rabbits warrens. It’s only fair I share what I found.

Pipe Dreams

Motocross star Robbie Maddison surfs in Tahiti on a motorbike. This kinda makes me want to learn how to ride a motorbike. Not that I want to surf waves on one, just want to learn how to ride one! The making of videos are equally as impressive. 2 years perfecting!

How To Fix Broken Make up

Hello! I have a great trick to share with you from Youtube star Michelle Phan. How to fix broken eyeshadows and compacts.

For me it’s not so much smashed, broken powders, but the hard to reach, last of the pressed powder in the corners of compacts. Occasionally I break them down into loose powder, but as you can imagine, it goes everywhere! I know there are a few more applications left and it seems a waste to throw it out. The trick’s really easy. All you need is cleaning alcohol.

Fixing broken eyeshadows and pressed powdersStep 1

First break down the compact powder to loose powderStep 2Step 3

Add a few squirts of cleaning alcohol.Step 4

Mix until a paste. It doesn’t matter if it’s a little runny as the alcohol will evaporate out.Step 5

Leave to dry overnight until all the alcohol has evaporated with powder, eyeshadow, blush restored! Easy!Step 6

The end result might not be as the original and a little more powdery/silky, but it works just as fine!

Cleaning alcohol is also great for removing make up from clothes! Especially foundation and powder on duvet/quilted coats and body warmers/gilets around the collar. Gently dab some on with tissue paper or cotton wool to remove. Again leave to allow the alcohol to evaporate, which shouldn’t take a few minutes.
