Lily Pebbles – The F Word Review

On Wednesday night I went to meet my favourite blogger and the inspiration behind me starting my blog – Lily Pebbles!

I’ve met Lily once before about five years ago with my mum who is also a fan of Lily’s! Lily was hosting a beauty event with Muji. Me and my Mum decided to pop along as my mum knew Lily was/is a huge inspiration to me and she also knew that I wanted to start my very own beauty blog but I didn’t know how and where to start!

Benefits new ‘Bad Gal Bang’ mascara review

Hello Everybody,

I hope that you’re all having a lovely day or Sunday if you’re reading this blog post live!

If you don’t already know, Benefit have done it again and released a new ‘wow‘ product.  They have redesigned Bad Gal mascarahe which is an all-time favourite product for me and many other bloggers. They’ve relaunched it with a ‘big bang‘. The new mascara includes a boost of volume and lengthening qualities.





“NEW BADgal BANG! volumising mascara gives your lashes 36-hours of full-blast volume. Its gravity-defying formula layers easily for bigger and badder impact without weighing them down. There’s no other mascara like it on earth!” 

– Benefit



I’ve always been an avid fan of Benefit Cosmetics. When I was 19 I got the Benefit advent calendar for Christmas and I received my first ever Benefit product from my Auntie when I was just 14. I love the packaging, the lightweight feel, price and effectiveness of their products.

I’ve always loved all of Benefits mascaras although ‘Bad Gal‘ was always my favourite as I’m a fan of fluttery volumising lashes. Length has never been an issue for me as I was luckily born with voluminous lashes. I love this mascara more than Bad Gal and I wasn’t sure that that would be possible!



Without Mascara // With Mascara

The Badgal Bang promises a water resistant and smudge proof mascara with out of this world volume without weighing down your lashes. I can definitely see the difference that this mascara makes without feeling like I’m wearing that heavy feeling.

4D93FE50-46B4-4DE1-9D6F-7C97BC4F1DA9This mascara is affordable too costing £21.50 for a full size or £10.50 for a mini size! It is available now from all cosmetics store such as Boots, Debenhams and John Lewis.

I would highly recommend that you go and try it! If you’re unsure then treat yourself to the mini which is available from boots and test it out!
