Benefit: They're Real Mascara

Hello again everyone!

I know, lately it's been posts just on - mascara, mascara, and more mascara!
BUT bare with me, I'm just a little bit of a mascara addict right now!

Today, I am here to review the one and only - Benefit's They're Real Mascara!

This little contraption has given me a ton of excellent use! 
This is one of my absolute favourite mascaras, simply because it does almost every single job a mascara should do!
It is a little bit more on the expensive side, but it is well worth the money! 
This mascara creates full lashes!
It lengthens, volumizes, and is very opaque!

The formula is thick and very black. The brush and the wand are also perfect for lengthening and creating volume. The brush is plastic, and has a bunch of tiny bristles (much like Covergirl's Clump Crusher). This helps separate the lashes, to create a more full look. The wand is also very sturdy, and as I have mentioned before, this enables you to get right to the root of your lashes, and gives you a good support to build your lashes' volume up. 

Lately, I have been using a lot of my other mascaras that I have bought, but I tend to turn to this one for my bottom lashes. Almost all of my looks include this mascara, simply because I find it has the best brush for bottom lashes! It separates them and coats them just perfectly! It also does not leave me with any under eye fall out (blackness/mascara smudges), which makes it an instant winner! 

I have nothing bad to say about this mascara, as almost every other review of it doesn't either.
I definitely recommend this mascara if you are willing to pay a little extra, for one of the most amazing mascaras you will ever try.

Anyway, I hope all of you are having a Happy Wednesday! And I will talk to you in my next post!!

What do you all think about the Benefit: They're Real Mascara?

One more little video I took throughout the month of February. Adding it to my monthly compilations. Hope you all enjoy it! :)

Revlon: Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to yet another post about mascara!

This particular mascara is slowly becoming my most used one! It has a really thick formula, making it quite easy to coat all of your lashes. It is also really opaque as well. As you all know, I love my dramatic lashes, and I am not a fan of wearing fake ones, so when a mascara creates more of a  dramatic effect, I instantly fall in love.

This mascara is supposed to give volume and length, I have to say that it definitely gives me more volume than length though. 

I am absolutely in love with the brush of this mascara! The cone shape really helps to get into the corners of my eyes, therefore I am able to get every lash coated with mascara :). It also does a very good job at coating the bottom lashes as well. 

So all in all, I am pretty pleased with this mascara, doesn't add as much length as I would have liked, but it does a decent job at making my lashes a lot fuller!

Hope you are having a great weekend! 

Happy St. Patrick's Day Sunday!

L'Oreal: Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara

Hello my lovelies!

Back here with yet another mascara that I have been wanting to share with all of you.

L'Oreal mascara products have always seemed to be quite a good match for my lashes, especially the ones that say they are going to lengthen them.

This particular mascara is certainly one of the lengthening ones!

I am not too sure how popular the Carbon Black edition of this line of mascaras is...I have seen a few beauty gurus rave on about it though.

For my lashes, this one seems to be the most lengthening out of all of the mascaras that I will be showing you.

The only mascara that I have spoken about before, that is a little more lengthening than this one, is the Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara. But even so, it adds only a smidge amount of length compared to this one.

The formula of the L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black, is much more liquid-y and pigmented than the Maybelline Illegal Length, which, I find, adds a little more of a dramatic effect. So if you are looking to make your eyes REALLY pop, this mascara would be a much better pick than the Maybelline one. 

You will notice the brush and wand to this mascara looks a little bit dinky...however, the small bristles (similar to the Clump Crusher) really allow the product to attach itself to the lash and fully lengthen. The small bristles also help with no clumping! (Not as good as the Clump Crusher though). The wand, being flexible, allows for quick and long strokes - this helps create the extension of your lashes with ease.

The packaging of this tube, is pretty cool - the shape of a telescope. It is sleek and very black, and the gold writing adds a sort of elegance to it. 

I tend to lean towards using this mascara more if I really want to make my lashes long and to create a drastic change from my naked lashes - I love to put this mascara together with a 'night out' makeup look!

Overall, L'Oreal mascaras have always impressed me, this one is yet another one that has not let me down! 

Hope you all are having a great Friday Eve! Weekend is now definitely in sight!!

Which L'Oreal products have impressed you?

Covergirl: Clump Crusher Mascara

Hello again!!

Back with another review of ANOTHER mascara!

Big Surprise!!!

Today I am going to be blogging about something that has been circulating around the beauty world  a lot! It has gotten mostly positive reviews, AND I am going to be giving it another one.

I give Covergirl a round of applause for all their newly formulated products, I was never a huge Covergirl fan, but they have really stepped up their game! Every product that I have been trying by them has definitely impressed me!

This mascara is one of those products!

This mascara is absolutely perfect for me, because, as I have mentioned before, I love big dramatic lashes. And one way to achieve that is by layering the mascara. With a lot of other mascaras I have tried, it is almost impossible to go beyond 2 layers without it clumping. However, this mascara allows me to put on as many layers as I want, and it just will NOT clump!


The packaging is quite simple, but the brush is what this mascara is all about! The tiny bristles on the brush are the reason behind the no-clump magic! They are so small and placed so close together that it is almost near to impossible for any clumps to form. The wand is also very strong, which makes it easier to put the brush right at the root of your lashes in order to pull up and create more volume! 

I must say, the only downfall to this mascara is that it doesn't really add any length to your lashes...but it does create a nicely separated and full look! 

I would definitely recommend this mascara to any of you who haven't gone out and gotten it already. It is truly an amazing little thing!

What have you all been thinking about the Clump Crusher? What have you all been thinking about all of Covergirl's new products??

Hope you all are having a great Wednesday! The week is half way over!!

Lancome: Hypnose Drama Mascara

Hello everyone!!

Welcome to March! Been a while since I was last on here, busy with school and midterms etc, etc. Been shooting a lot of videos as well, thinking of starting a YouTube beauty channel, haven't uploaded anything yet, still in the editing process, but hoping to get some of my vlogs up there shortly. Will be posting them up here as soon as I do, since I like sharing my day to day  life with you guys as well as beauty products!

As I have mentioned before, I have been venturing out into the world and trying new mascaras. I used to be the type of girl that would own one particular mascara, be in love with it, and use it up until it was finished - then go out and either pick up the same one, or try another one. Lately, I have been going a little mascara crazy - AND I happened to get a free sample of the Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara. I didn't use it for THE longest time because I thought that I had found my one and only match - The Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara.

One day, randomly picked the Lancome mascara up and used it - FELL IN LOVE!

My lashes were so dramatically black and had so much volume! I have an obvious love for big, dramatic, and black lashes - so this mascara suits me perfectly.

The brush does a very good job at plumping my lashes, along with lengthening them. Ever since I have been wearing this mascara I have been receiving comments about my lashes: "Are those fake eyelashes?", "What mascara are you using?", "Your lashes look fantastic!". Will definitely be picking up a full size bottle of this mascara, along with possibly trying many more of the Lancome mascara products!

Soooo I have to give this mascara a 10/10 because it has given me everything that I have looked for in a mascara. However, this is not saying that I am not game for trying other mascaras out either - because if I have learned anything through this process, it is always good to just venture out a little bit and try things! There are many good mascaras circulating within the drugstore as well, all of which I would like to get my hands on and try. Will make sure to make reviews on all of them, since my school schedule has lightened up now :).

Hope you all had a great weekend, and that your Tuesday is wonderfulllll!

What Lancome products are you a fan of?
