REVIEW: Garnier & Maybelline

Hello lovely readers! It's been a while since I have done a review so I thought I would do some today!

Garnier Fructics fortifying shampoo and conditioner:
I really like these two products! They left my hair fresh and clean and smelling great! It didn’t leave any sticky residue either which was a major plus. I would definitely recommend this shampoo and conditioner!

Garnier pure 3 in 1:
I absolutely love this product! It is a scrub, a face mask and a wash all in one. I use it on the days where my skin feels oily and in need of attention. It noticeably brightens and clears the skin and gently exfoliates. A great product!

Maybelline mini colorama nail polish:
The colours I received were an amazing shimmery orange and a bright yellow. Unfortunately the formula was very thin and it took about 4-5 coats to make the colour completely opaque. If the nail polish was slightly thicker, I would definitely purchase more!

Maybelline Baby Lips balm:
What can I say? Possibly the best lip balm I have ever owned. It lasts for a long time on the lips and soothes chapped and dry lips. The only problem I experience with this balm was that after a while the twisty bit at the base of the stick, came loose and twists the lip balm up and down while it’s in my pocket. Other than that, I would recommend this product!

Garnier B.B. cream:
Unfortunately the B.B cream I was sent was a little too dark for my skin tone despite it being the lightest shade. I tried this product out anyway, to see how it worked. The texture is much like a tinted moisturiser and the coverage is about the same. It has a lovely smell as well! I think this B.B. cream would work best on those who already have a fairly clear complexion as it isn’t a very high coverage cream. If Garnier were to make more colour range I would definitely consider purchasing!

Maybelline Lots of lashes mascara:
I LOVE this mascara! It creates the appearance of fake eyelashes without being clumpy and spidery. The thing I really enjoy about this mascara is the mascara wand. The wand itself is smaller at one end which really helps to reach the inner and outer lashes. A waterproof version of this mascara would also be great!  

(Disclaimer: I was very kindly sent these products to review but that in no way changes my opinions. I am as honest as always! xx)
