Pluslash- a review

Mac Plushlash review

On MUA Macs Plushlash scored a 3.9 rating. Some call it "HG-mascara", some call it good. Personally I cant decide.
I bought it thinking it would be superduper amazing. But the first impression i had was that is somewhat hard to apply. I tried wiggle it trought the lashes and "swirl" it trought. I ended up with thick and a little longer lashes. But also with rakooneyes. Normally I almost never end up with catching the skin when I apply mascara, but with plushlash I it was horrible. And now almost 2.5 months later, I sill have that problem. Not as bad as when I bough it, but still catching the skin all the time. I dont know if it is me having small lids or what, because I used to use Diorshow that has a massive brush and never having that problem. I think it is hard to apply anyway. But the results are good, it does wolumize.
It doesnt smudge to bad, just a little throught the day. So the staing power is ok.
Overall Plushlash is pretty god, you just have to learn how to use it. I dont know if I will buy it again, but it is totally decent.

Do you have a tip about an inexpensive mascara or maybe you know a diffrent way to apply plushlash, let me know!



(me looking stupid with my skincare products)
I am a huge believer in good skincare. Using the right products for your skin is even more important then what makeup your wearing. I remeber last year when my skin was really bad. REALLY bad. I dont have acne, but I got some awful zits and my skin was always itching and red. Above all that, it was super oily. I (stupid as always) thought I had oily skin and used products for acne/oily skin. My zits and oil didnt go away and I used stronger and stronger products. All that happend was that I got allergic reactions all the time. Stupid- I know.
One day my mom took me to Kiehls in Stockholm, close to where I live. The girl in the shop was really nice and said I have to use products for sensitive skin. So I bought the Gentle foaming cleanser, Cucumber toner and ultra facial moisturizer(wich I think Pinkiecharm uses).Expensive, but my lovely Mom helped with the cost. After 2 weeks my skin cleared up and all the allergies i had went away. YAY!
I am using the same stuff right now, still works great. I dont have perfect skin, but it is a lot better then a year ago. You get a lot of product from one bottle, I recently had to buy a new set up of them. Me like!
My mom uses Kihels too, and her skin is sensitive as mine and shes really pleased with it. So I really recommend their skincare. No, I dont work at Kiehls, thank you.
Anyway, I have a question, do you have a good tip on a budget facescrub? Please, dont recommend StIves, they dont sell it in Stockholm. Let the Tips BEGIN!'


Another beauty-blog, like theres isnt too many?

Well, this is a little welcome for my new blog! Maybe I should start by telling some about myself... Yes, I did get some inspiration in my blogadress from Check her out now, shes awsome!

Im a 16year old girl(Cherryblossom92-duh) living in Stockholm. Im a figure skater on my spare time and hanging out with mates as all teenagers do in my age. But my little obssession in life is beauty. Unfortunatly everybody I know only care about boys(So do I, so Im not better), fashion and being invited to the right parties- so I have nobody to talk beauty to. So I dicided to start a Makeup-blog! I read to many beatyblogs and hang out way to much at MA(to scared to share my opinion FYI) and Youtube, so here it goes!
About beauty brands that I love and hate, I have a love-hate relationship MAC. Why? They like the taste of my wallet.
Unfortunatly we dont have many brands in Sweden, like Nars, Urban Decay, Shu Uemura, Benefit and Covergirl. So I wont do many reviews on their products(and that sucks btw).
Somebody will ask why my name is Cherryblossom92, and its because of Macs lipglass in Cherryblossom-that I love!

I havent really dicided exactly WHAT this blog will be about, but atleast beauty, so enjoy and I see you soon!
