First Impressions of Maybelline Tattoo Brow

Hello my lovelies,

How are we all? Today is the 1st February! I know I cannot quite believe that either. January felt like it was so long, but now I am thinking wow that was fast!

I have been trying so many different brow products out over the years I wanted to share with you my experiences of my first impressions with some of the new products on the market.

I like Maybelline products for the most part, but I have to be honest and say I have never been in love with any of their brow products. I saw the Tattoo Brow, which claims to be waterproof and lasts up to 2 days. So I thought it would be a good one to try. I saw it in Tesco in their 2 for £12 so I also picked up a new mascara as well, because why not haha.

So this morning I sat down in front of my mirror and set about doing my makeup. It is one of those days where I couldn't be bothered doing anything major so i put the bare minimum on so I wouldn't scare my clients and I was done.

I opened the box and was instantly disappointed. It didn't look like it was going to be something that you can get precision from. The brush was fluffy and had too much product on it so loads would go on with the first touch. I tried to do a simple eyebrow and it looked so harsh. It was messy. The only way I could see it working is if you outlined your brows with a pencil first then remove the excess product. I am not keen on the smell either. It is a very prominent scent and I could smell it on my face after wards.

I had to wipe them off and redo my brows for going to work as there was no way I would be able to go with those brows. I will try it again and do it differently. Have you tried this product? What did you think of it?

Fibromyalgia isn't a real illness!!

Hello my lovelies,

I hope this post finds you well. Yes you read this right. I don't believe that Fibromyalgia is a real illness!!

Ok ok, put the pitch forks down!! Before you start a lynch mob, I am not saying that people with it aren't sick. Quite the opposite. I just feel that this mystery illness Fibromyalgia has more to it than just one illness!


For a start it really isn't a diagnosis at all. It is the final straw after a process of elimination. You go through so many tests you will have had more pricks than kerplunk! You will have seen so many different doctors that you will feel like you see them more than your family. By the time they see you don't have a, b, c or d they have no clue so they tell you it is Fibromyalgia. They don't know how you got it, why you got it or really how to treat it either.Every study that is done contradicts the previous study. Some say its to do with nerves, some say its to do with blood. Some doctors claim there is a test to diag…

Living with Chronic Illnesses: Grieving for me

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well. I made a video a few years ago on this subject, but I don't feel I fully articulated what I was trying to capture very well.

I have lived most of my life with pain, exhaustion and constant illness but nothing could have prepared me for what I would come up against 6 years ago.

I was working in a nursing home, as a care assistant, studying Health and Social Care with plans to go in to nursing. I wanted to work as a nurse in a home. I loved my job. I loved what I could do to help those I was caring for. I had been taking pain relief for around 10 years by this stage, mostly codeine, every so often increasing to tramadol. Generally that was only for short periods. I had spent 6 weeks off sick from a viral infection. My doctor tried to convince me that this was due to stress in my marriage. He made me believe that it was my body trying to cope with the fact my husband and I were having fertility issues.

It was months after that when I…

How is my skin more youthful now than in my youth?

Hey my lovelies,

I get asked all the time how my skin is so good. I tell them that it is all about a good skincare regime. My skin is better now than it was 10 years ago, but that didn't happen by accident. I have worked hard to get my skin in shape and I love that I have great skin and can come to work as a Beautician and not feel self conscious that I am not perfected.

We all hear the same thing over and over.... Drink more water and it will hydrate your skin and your skin will be gorgeous blah blah blah. This is not entirely true, drinking water does not directly make your skin more hydrated.. I had believed most of my life that my skin was dehydrated because I didn't drink enough water. So I would chug my way through bottle after bottle and see no difference. I couldn't understand, while I was training to be a Facialist at the Beauty School I was shocked to find out that one of the most common tips I had ever been given was a myth. I actually think I may have offended …
