THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

The Xlash mascara is the mascara I can't live without.

We are talking about an ultra-black mascara that not only will lift your lashes but also give that drama to your lashes.


XLASH PACKAGING DESIGN


The design is ultra sleek and luxurious. 

THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

I particularly love how thought out the packaging design is. 


It is high quality and even includes a protective seal on its mascara to ensure also authenticity.


THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK


A beautiful message within the Xlash Mascara with its magnetic opening.


THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

The Xlash mascara comes as a matte black mascara with a lilac logo.

MUCH MORE THAN JUST A MASCARA


I can't believe how the mascara itself is able to catch onto each and every of my single lashes.

THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK


The Xlash mascara made my lashes instantly longer and darker.


I have these quite medium to short lashes which are quite straight in consistency and it totally adds drama to my lashes. Thanks to it's wand I found it gave my lashes a slight curve too.

I was instantly wowed it made my lashes super black.


The mascara formula looks extremely rich in pigment so imagine how amazing it works also on very light lashes.


I felt that my lashes looked intense from the get go. This is probably because of how much volume it adds to your lashes.

THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

I can't live without the Xlash mascara now!!


If like me you would like to do without semi permanent lashes then this could be a great alternative.

The Xlash mascara is a great option for those out there who want to give their lashes a brake from extensions.


Eyelash extensions can wear out your own lashes so the combination of vitamins and natural ingredients within the Xlash mascara will help you restore health to your natural lashes.

THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

The Xlash mascara is definitely water proof and did not smudge.

I would say that staying power of the Xlash mascara is great as it lasted throughout my day.


I particularly enjoyed that it's a well rounded mascara as it has a vitamin rich formula, it is dermatologically tested and is CRUELTY FREE.

THE XLASH MASCARA WAND


The Xlash mascara has a specially designed mascara brush.

THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

At Xlash they were able to develop a mascara wand capable thanks to its killer curves to catch even the tiniest lash.

I noticed that it is able to separate lashes rather than clump them up all together.


Especially with short lashes the last thing you want is for them to look clumpy.

THE XLASH MASCARA FORMULA


The Xlash mascara is rich in Vitamin E which helps repair the lash follicles by promoting further future lash growth.


It also contains Biotin which tends to strengthen the eyelashes.


THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

It contains Vitamin A and panthenol to give you more textured lashes making them more healthy and shiny rather than drying them out.

Keratin is produced as a response to using the Xlash mascara which helps repair and promote thick and full lashes.


Other natural lash health promoters within the Xlash mascara include beeswax, carnauba wax and Rhodiola Rosea root.


The science behind the Xlash Mascara is outstanding that's another reason why I can't live without them.


HOW TO USE THE XLASH MASCARA


The best way to use the Xlash mascara is to use it in combination with the Xlash Eyelash Serum or Xlash Pro Eyelash Serum.

The Xlash eyeliner in carbon black can both be dramatic or casual for a day or evening look.

I love it's polished silver casing and it's precise tip.


THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

The Xlash eyeliner in carbon black is very highly pigmented and luckily smudge proof.


I have very sensitive skin and had no reaction. It is very long lasting.

The Xlash eyeliner formula is fast drying.

Definitely a great little add on to the mascara purchase.


THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

I love how precise application is with that precise eyeliner tip.


FINAL VERDICT


Are you looking for a lengthening , volumising, nourishing mascara??

The Xlash mascara is my new must-have mascara.


Look how wonderful and smouldering my eyes looked.

THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

It promotes lash growth and length.

It's super nutricious formula is designed for those of us who want naturally longer and thinker lashes.


THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

It's a wonderful alternative for those who need a break from semi permanent lashes or lash extensions in general.


Note however that as it is a water based mascara so it can also be used in conjunction with eyelash extensions.

I love the drama it gives my lashes and most importantly how it gives them the foundation for further growth.


I did notice that my lashes looked longer and fuller after extended use.

Xlash is a brand to look out for and their mascara will blow your lashes with length.


THE MASCARA I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT - XLASH MASCARA AND EYELINER IN CARBON BLACK

Hats off to ZOEVA beauty for coming up with my favourite packaging design so far.

The packaging is beyond exceptional and high in quality.


The concept of the packaging surrounds the butterfly being able to transform herself in a wonderful and elegant being.

THE MELODY COLLECTION BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

They went full force on the high quality and finish of the packaging to the point that as soon as I laid my eyes on the collection I was sold.


The packaging is very consistent and well thought through.

Perfect for this spring and summer season for sure.

MELODY EYESHADOW PALETTE

THE MELODY COLLECTION BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK
My first reaction when opening the Melody palette was complete and utter fascination.


Did ZOEVA just release the best all rounder palette! I couldn't believe my eyes. All the basic shades I envisioned within one palette were there!!


I hate sifting through different palettes for the basic browns or shimmers. All the ones I love reaching out for were all in one palette.

The biggest question however is, will the colour payoff and killer blending I desire be there!

THE MELODY COLLECTION BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

The Melody palette contains 10 shades.


The shades range from a porcelain pink to a rich espresso! Exactly my cup of tea or coffee shall I say!!

They kept the concept very much alive as you will float like a butterfly in these exclusive shades created specifically for the ZOEVA Melody collection.

I can see exactly why you would float like a butterfly! The reason is because it's so beautiful and you would be literally with your heads in the clouds, a bit like when you are having a beautiful dream.


THE MELODY COLLECTION PALETTE BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

The Melody ZOEVA collection palette includes 10 eyeshadows.
4 are matte , 3 are satin , 2 are duochrome and one is of a shimmer consistency.

I love how it's not all shimmers and glitters but is a WELL ROUNDED PALETTE, when it comes to types of pigments.


THE MELODY COLLECTION PALETTE SWATCHES BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

COLOUR SWATCHES REVIEWS FROM LEFT TO RIGHT

Gowns Swirling


This is porcelain pink with glitter. The colour payoff is incredible.

When swatching it only takes one swipe!

On the eye the result is the same and it is very pigmented. This shade works great to make your look pop.

Airy Dalliance


This is a Satin delicate apricot.

Very smooth to Swatch and again the colour payoff is outstanding.

I found it very easy to blend and a wonderful colour to use on your whole eyelid.

Gentle Clasp


This is a Satin cool blue with glitter.

Again as per all the shades it's very pigmented.

It is so beautiful to swatch and even more beautiful on the eye.

I found that colour payoff is better with better brushes. (For example when I used my all over shadow brush from real techniques it didn't really put down the product as well as my Marc Jacobs beauty all over shadow brush)

I particularly love this colour either to be used on the whole eyelid, on the middle of the eye lid for a halo effect or the inner corner of the eye.

Cocoon of Doubt


This is a Satin antique gold.

The colour payoff is insane on this one. Probably the most beautiful golden tone I own not only in terms of colour payoff but also shade.

I found that not only you can use this shade on your eyes but I used it as a highlighter on my face and eyebrow bone. It gives a pop to your finish.

Fly Solo


This is a Matte cool ash brown.

I adore that you have a cool ash brown in this palette. It's such a good shade to have in all palettes.

Browns are so great to create dimension on your eye.

The colour payoff again was wonderful. It was very easy to blend and to work with.

It's the perfect shade of brown that works well on all skin colours.

You can use this shade on your upper and lower lid.

Another great idea is to use this as an eyeliner with a flat eyeliner brush when you go for a very basic and effortless look.

THE MELODY COLLECTION PALETTE SWATCHES BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

From Heaven


This is a Duochrome rose satin base with icy blue shift.

The great thing about Duochrome shades is that they look fabulous on the entire life or inner eye corners.

The colour payoff was wonderful on this one.

Amazing shades of ice blue and rose shades as the light hits it.

Whirled Above


This is a Matte sandy maple brown sugar shade.

It is a very pigmented shade and wonderful as a base colour in the outer corner of your lid.

You can use it also to blend out the darker browns in the palette.

Again, very easy to blend and a must have shade in every palette.

Crystal Wings


This is a Duochrome rust-red satin base with a golden green shift shade.

This is the perfect colour for the eyelid and inner corner of the eye.

This variation of colour from rust red and golden green is the perfect combination of luxury.

I would simply even wear this on its own on the whole lid with some mascara on the lashes.

It's Perfect to top off the central halo of a cut crease.

Soul Unheld


This is a Shimmer golden honey bronze shade.

This is a great colour for the summer and works well with any skin tone.

I find that you can use it in many ways including on its own as well as in a cut crease look or halo cut crease.

About to Leave


A Matte rich espresso brown shade perfect for every occasion and for the necessary build up of dimension to any eye look.

You can use it in the corner of your eyelid and lower lash line, as well as using it as an eyeliner.

THE MELODY COLLECTION PALETTE BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

Can you see how beautiful and easy they are to swatch?

The ZOEVA Melody palette shades are all high in pigment, easy to blend and do not contain nor parabens nor perfume.


Can you believe it's a made in Italy product? No wonder the quality is so high!

MELODY HAND-HELD MIRROR


It retails at £13.00
BUY HERE


THE MELODY COLLECTION MIRROR BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK
Finally a brand other than Jeffree Star that does a mirror for their collection.

The mirror is high quality hand held mirror with the ZOEVA Melody collection theme design. This is a limited edition accessory so if I were you I'd get mine as soon as possible.


It looks beautiful on camera and is the perfect accessory to take with you everywhere you go.

THE MELODY COLLECTION MIRROR BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK
Make up on the go is a great excuse to bring it out with you or to travel with

I particularly love the butterfly theme and how they decided to not have it matte rather than shining especially because when you film your YouTube or instagram videos it can be distracting.

The price is reasonable if you consider that Jeffree Star's simple design retails at double this.

MELODY LIP GLOSS


BECOME A BUTTERFLY
It retails at £11.00
BUY HERE


THE MELODY COLLECTION BECOME A BUTTERFLY LIPGLOSS BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

Again as per all the Zoeva Melody collection this is a limited edition piece.

This is their first ever lip gloss with an ultra shine finish.

The Melody collection palette by Zoeva is a must-have piece.


The quality of the pigments is outstanding, they are highly pigmented and free from parabens and perfumes. Perfect for that sensitive skin.

THE MELODY COLLECTION BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

The pigments in the Melody collection are extremely easy to work with and to blend.


Even a make-up novice would reap the benefits of using this palette.

I love that it is a well rounded palette with a different selection of shades types inclusive of duochromes ,mattes , stain and shimmers.

THE MELODY COLLECTION BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

Probably the best palette I have purchased this year as all the shades are so beautiful and useful for most types of looks whether it's an everyday look or an evening look.


The mirror is beautiful and definitely worth the purchase as it is a piece you won't be able to do without.

THE MELODY COLLECTION BY ZOEVA - REVIEW , SWATCHES AND FINAL LOOK

The "becoming a butterfly" lip gloss is beautiful and luscious. 


I definitely will be looking into purchasing the other 4.

I am completed besotted with the ZOEVA Melody collection as a whole not only in terms of quality but also in terms of price point. 


I am so surprised with how affordable this collection is.
