15 ways to use Vaseline šŸ’•šŸ’•

  

I always have a pot of Vaseline in my drawer, have done since my early teens and over the years I’ve discovered some weird and wonderful things you can use it for! So here’s a quick list:

1. Customise your cosmetics

Add Vaseline to any lose pigments from your eyes shadows, blush etc and mix them together to create a cream shadows and blush. You can also do this to make tinted lip balms. 

2. Use it as a clear Mascara 

On makeup free days or natural makeup days you can trade in your mascara for Vaseline by smoothing it over your lashes for a glossy and thicker look. It’s also a great eye lash conditioner! 

3. Polish your shoes!

Bit of a weird one but my grandma once told me to use it for polishing my tan boots. This was quite recently and it gives them a great shine! 

4. Get the perfect tan

Apply it to dry areas like elbows and knees before tanning as it acts as a barrier so that the tan won’t cling/go streaky in those places. 

5. Gentle eye makeup remover

We all know how expensive makeup remover can be, but you can use Vaseline on the tip of a cotton bud to gently remove eye liner, mascara and I’ve even found when I used to use false lashes that it would help with removing the excess glue. 

6. Soothe dry skin 

Apply Vaseline to dry skin or cracked heels on your feet and then pop a pair of socks on. You can also do the same for hands and wear some gloves overnight. Really helps hydrate your skin. 

7. Mess free manicure 

Apply to your cuticles before painting your nails to keep the colour off your skin. 

8. Remove makeup stains from clothing

With a damp cloth, Vaseline can be used to help lift makeup stains from your clothing, pillow cases and bedding. 

9. Instant Highlighter 

Just use a small amount on the high points of your face for a natural dewy highlight. You can also use it on your shins to make your legs glow. 

10. Smooth that baby hair! 

You can smooth down your baby hairs or frizz by using small amounts of Vaseline in replace of hair product. 

11. Prep skin for fragrance 

Moisturised skin holds fragrance for longer, apply Vaseline before you spray. 

12. DIY lip scrub 

Add some sugar to your Vaseline to make your own DIY lip scrub. 

13. DIY shower/bath sea salt scrub 

Add Sea salt to your Vaseline to make your own DIY body scrub with moisturising benefits. 

14. Take those brows 

Add a very small amount of Vaseline to your eyebrow brush to help shape your brows perfectly. 

15. Help stubborn earrings slide in

If you’re like me and don’t wear earrings too often, the holes can sometimes be difficult when trying to put earrings in. Add a small amount of Vaseline to your ear lobe and over the earring to help it slide in with no problems.

Mac lip liner dupes (NYX edition)Ā 

  

Just a mini blog tonight because I’m exhausted after having lots of fun with the kids today in the sun! 

So basically I love lip liners. I love how they can change the shape of your mouth instantly without any effort. I really love all of the Mac range but like I said in my lipstick dupe post, I just can’t afford to buy them all the time. 

So as time as gone by, I’ve tried lots of different cheaper brands to see if I can find some similar colours. Now obviously I only wear certain shades of lippy, so can only comment on the ones I’ve tried but in almost certain there will be a dupe for every shade they stock. 

NYX seem to be the favourite so far, which Helps because I adore anything by them. So here’s a few I’ve tried and tested, I wish I had them all to swatch but currently I now only own NYX because I loved them so much. 

Mac – Current = NYX – Deep Purple

  

Mac – Cherry = NYX – Plush Red  

 

Mac – Spice = NYX – Coffee  

 

Mac – Stripdown = NYX – Nude Beige  

 

Mac – Dervish = NYX – Peekaboo Neutral  

 

And my absolute favourite because it’s practically sold out everywhere! 

Mac – Whirl = NYX – Mauve  

 

Again I hope this has been helpful and helps you save some money! Please let me know down below if you know any other dupes as I’m always on the lookout! 

Thanks again for reading.

Mac lipstick dupes (Revlon Edition)Ā 

  

I love Mac, don’t get me wrong. But sometimes I just can’t afford to fork out that kind of money on a lipstick! So I started trying to find Dupes in other brands that were much cheaper, where I could still get the colour and look I was going for! 

So here’s a list of a few different shades that I’ve tried and tested. 

Mac – Dark Side = Revlon – Berry Cherry

  

Mac – Ruby Woo = Revlon – Really Red 

 

Mac – Snob = Revlon – Pink Pout 

 

Mac – Nouveau = Revlon – Stormy Pink 

 

Mac – Vegas Volt = Revlon – Coral Berry 

 

Mac – Ravishing = Revlon – Smoked Peach 

 

Mac – Speed Dial = Revlon – Carnation 

 

Mac – Cyber = Revlon – Va Va Violet 

 

Mac – Angel = Revlon – Primrose 


Hope this helps some of you out! And save some pennies while you’re at it. Revlon is one of my favourite Lipstick brands but I really do love Mac as a treat.

Thanks for reading. Let me know down below if you know any good Mac dupes.
