Taken By Surprise

Taken By Surprise 1

I haven’t noticed much about this mascara on the beauty blogger channels, so I was keen to try it out when I noticed it shopping a couple of days ago. At a glance, the packaging is absolutely different to any mascara I’ve ever seen. It’s in the same large tube that almost all of the Rimmel Scandaleyes mascaras come in, but the barrel is textured to imitate the snake printing on the label. It’s kind of strange to the touch, but it’s a fascinating idea.

The main defining factor of this mascara is the wand. As you can see from the picture, that wand looks curvy crazy pretty! Instead of applying this mascara as if you would a normal bristle wand mascara (by shimmying the wand through your lashes), all you do is rotate the wand and into the lashes up. The rotating motion ends up curling your lashes!

You’ll see what I mean when comparing the actual mascara appears like used in combination with and lacking any eyelash curler in the pictures below. Well, wow. Both eye are identical fairly, wouldn’t you say? Which is pretty incredible-my lashes have to be curled, no matter what mascara I use, but the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Rockin’ Curves eliminates that step completely! In conditions of length, those little lashes became a lot longer. I’ve always loved when eyelashes look gorgeously long when viewed from the medial side, and now I could finally join the club! One thing though, is that this mascara does look just a little spidery and clumpy after a few applications.

It’s not too apparent though with least it doesn’t flake. THEREFORE I will surely neglect a small amount of spider lash! But the ultimate test for a mascara is to see how it holds up after a few hours. So after taking the above pictures, I visited work for approximately five hours (to an exceptionally busy shift, actually) and had taken these pictures soon after to observe how the mascara lasted.

There’s just a little smudging along the lower lash range and around the outer corner, but besides that, my lashes look the same as they do hours ago almost! Probably the most impressive thing is how this mascara kept my lashes curled, even on the eye that I didn’t use an eyelash curler on!

  • What is your most cherished makeup product
  • Pinching your cheeks is a great blusher. PARTIALLY TRUE
  • Does the patient speak and inhale freely
  • Skin Type: Dry, Dry-Sensitive, Normal
  • 3 to 5 teaspoons of water
  • Can’t believe it will likely be 2014 in just a few days! This year has gone by so fast

Even as I’m typing this post about nine hours since I put this mascara on, my lashes still appear to be they do in the picture above. If you want to together avoid smudging all, there is a waterproof formula available too. 17, so if you can get it while it’s on the new product introductory price, I’d take action! Here’s my full look with the mascara (and undoubtedly, some dark lippy to look with the stone theme)! What’s your favourite mascara? Let me below know in the feedback!

Herbalists in centuries past, like the Roman scholar Pliny the Elder, recorded numerous ways to get ready roses to draw out their medicinal virtues. A number of products using rose petals, hips, and seed products can be found commercially, including perfumes and lotions, essential oil, rosewater, and tablets and tinctures. The bright-red rose hips should be harvested in the fall following the first frost. The hips are cut lengthwise to facilitate drying and placed on a paper-lined holder in a warm and airy room out of direct sunlight. The irritant hairs on the dried out hips can be winnowed by shaking the hips vigorously in a cable sieve. The hips should be stored in labeled clearly, dark glass storage containers in a cool location.

The dried out hips will keep medicinal potency for up to one year. Decoction: Use about 2.5 tsp of thinly sliced up, dried out or fresh rose hips per 8 oz of cool water. Bring to a boil in a glass or ceramic pot. Reduce temperature and simmer for about 10 minutes. Drink cold in small doses during the day. Tincture: Combine 4 oz of finely cut fresh rose petals and hips, or 2 oz dry powdered herb with one pint of brandy, gin, or vodka, in a glass container.

The alcohol should be enough to cover the herb parts. Cover and store the blend from light for approximately two weeks, every day shaking several times. Strain and store in a capped, dark-glass bottle. A typical dosage is 10-15 drops of the tincture in drinking water, a day up to 3 x.
