The Ultimate Confidence Boosters

Too Faced LashGASM mascara

MAC Rebel lipstick

There are two makeup products that always boost my confidence – mascara and lipstick. I just apply some volumizing mascara, add some lipstick for a pop of color and I am ready to go, feeling at least ten times better about my looks. So if you’ve ever wondered which is the duo that I reach for when I want to look my best – you’ve come to the right place! Say hello to my Holy Grail lipstick and mascara - the oh-so-amazing MAC Rebel and Too Faced Lash GASM.

Too Faced LashGASM Mascara

Being on my fifth tube of this baby, I can now pretty much call it my all time favorite mascara! Move aside Benefit They’re Real, you’ve been replaced by this little gem and I can guarantee you that I won’t be looking back any time soon! LashGASM (kudos for the creative name *cough*) is everything I ever wanted in mascara and it definitely ticks all boxes. The somehow strange-looking, thin plastic wand actually works absolute wonders and makes the application process a child’s play. It really gets in the root of the lash and the point-y end allows you to get into the really short corner lashes, which I adore. LashGASM (here) also does an incredible job at adding volume and length to the lashes and if you are like me and fancy more dramatic lash effect – this baby offers just that. The mascara itself is really deep black and it’s very buildable. It also separates the lashes beautifully and doesn’t smear at all. Also, huge bonus points for the amazing hold-curl properties and the incredible clump-free formula! So if you want to transform your lashes from barely-there to falsie-like, you need to get involved with LashGASM. It’s love! See my full review here.  

MAC Rebel Lipstick

The product that never fails to boost my confidence and has got me covered when I feel a bit ‘meh’ is definitely my MAC lipstick in Rebel (here). This is hands down my Holy Grail lipstick and with a good reason. The gorgeous fuchsia berry color is so unique and brightens up my complexion beautifully. It may look scary in the bullet but on the lips it’s a whole nuther story – it is bold but not as vampy and I love how feminine and sophisticated it makes me feel when I wear it. Rebel has a certain edge to it, which I love and when I wear it it makes me feel almost invincible haha. The pigmentation of the lippy is downright amazing and it has a lovely semi-matte finish. Speaking of a MAC lipstick this won’t come as surprise to anyone but Rebel glides on the lips effortlessly and smoothly. It does feel a bit drying on my naturally super dry lips though but after a good exfoliation and with some balm underneath – it’s all good. Rebel stays on me for about four hours and then leaves a nice berry tint on the lips, which I personally really like. If you feel a bit more daring and fancy incorporating a bolder lip to your makeup look then Rebel is definitely the one to go for. It’s classy, it’s different, it’s empowering and will make you stand out from the crowd – that’s for sure! See my full review and swatches here.

Have you tried any of these products before? Do you love them as much as I do? Which is your favorite confidence booster?

Lots of love,


  1. I agree with the REBEL lipstick being a confidence booster, so much oomph in there! :)

  2. That lipstick looks an amazing colour. I've got both of the mascaras mentioned just waiting to be used in my drawer but I don't want to have another mascara open so I'm waiting to use up some of my others. Totally excited for it now though since I'd never seen anybody recommend it before.

  3. MAC Rebel has to be one of my most favourite colours that and Cyber!

  4. Winged Liner is definitely one of my favorite confidence boosters! I absolutely love wearing liquid liner; I also love a dark red lip myself (though Rebel is one of my top choices too!)

  5. I wanted to try MAC's Rebel lipstick for so long! I think it's so absolutely beautiful, I'm just not sure if I'd be able to pull it off :P


  6. Yes to this! I think No7 Gay Geranium is my perfect confidence lipstick, or any other something coral red. It really lifts my complexion and it's always the one I reach for the most.

  15. Never tried that lipstick, but that mascara is great! The only downside to me is that it tends to smudge under my eyes after a few hours, but I have super oily skin and eyelids, so I blame it on that!

  16. winged liner and rebel is my favourite confidence boosting make up look :)

  17. Rebel is definitely one of my favourite MAC lipsticks :)
