Review: Invisibobble hair ring

When Glossybox popped these in our box last month it seemed like they where on to a winner, a hair band that doesn't leave kinks in your hair is like a God send.
Or it would be if they worked.
They look like an old phone cord but their design is supposed to be the reason they leave your hair kink free if you have it up and want to take it down.
This excited me because often if tie my hair up before taking a bath or shower and doing a pony tail for work was so easy but then I just find I have to leave it up until carwash it so I dont have kinks, could this solve that problem? No, it couldn't.
I tested one out in the shower yesterday and although it was easy enough to put in that is kind of when it's 'benefits' wore out.
It did not sit right in the hair, the ring spread itself out so it looked really bad, but if it was just for the shower who cares? Then I had to take it out maybe 5/10 minutes later and that's when we got into real problems. Now just keep in mind my hair had been washed the night before and all the knots had been brushed out before I put it up, but somehow the hair ring managed to get beyond knotted in my hair and once I finally got it out and looked at my hair there was a kink there.
So although these come in the cutest stocking stuffer box giant I would say they are worth your time or money.

Hope you found my review helpful
Talk to you soon

Review: MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit

Current favourite eyebrow product
It is so easy and everything you need is in this handy dandy hand bag size kit
What you get are 2 eyebrow powders (I have the fair-medium kit) which are pigmented, soft, bendable, and are easy to mix -which is what I do.
The other powder is a very peach toned highlight for the brow bone, although cnn I dent reach for this as a highlight because it isn't bright enough but as a transition shade for the crease.
The final product is a clear wax which is nice to set the brow hairs with.
The kit also comes with a great mirror, a duel needed brush (that's actually use for both the powders and the wax) and a baby pair of tweezers.
I love this kit, it's a great buy for £3.50 and I love that you get the 2 different brow colours so you can mix your perfect shade and change up your look depending on your mood.

First Impressions: Miss Sporty Mission Correction Foundation

I picked this up (for £3.99) because I couldn't find the ' So Matte Perfect Stay Foundation", I was very interested to see how the two compare - turns out they are very different.
(One day I will review the "So Matte" one to let you know what I think of that one)
The packaging reminds me of a superhero and I think over all, for the price you pay, it's really nice. I like that all the information you need is right there, easy to find/see seemingly perfect for makeup beginners.

I was very surprised at how thin the consistency was, it was like a thin lotion - not a fan.
Worse than the thinness of the foundation is its application, although I have said that this is my first impressions I have actually used it a few times and have yet to find a good way to apply it. I have tried a brush, a sponge and my fingers but I always seem to be removing product faster than I'm applying it.
The staying power could be better, but saying that I have experienced worse.
Although it is a 3 in 1 foundation (foundation, concealer and highlighter) I would say that the coverage is average and definitely not as high as I expected - it's also not as glowing on the skin as I thought.

I can't say that I can see my self using this anymore than I already have, no even as a last resort when im out of my other foundations.

Hope you liked my review, sorry it was so negative I was really let down if I'm honest
