I don’t know what it is about mascara packaging but they always claim extraordinary things. The before and after pictures make it look like your eyelashes will go from:

Recently, I’ve seen reviews for the L’OREAL Voluminous Lash Paradise around YouTube and the interwebs. After seeing their results, I knew I had to try it out myself. But the struggle was real! This mascara was sold out at every Target/ulta near me but I finally found it at a random Target in Henderson, NV.

FINALLY.

They only had the waterproof version so today, I will be reviewing the L’OREAL Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara! You can get it for about $8.99 to $9.99 depending where you purchase it. I got mine for $8.99 at Target!

Look at this pretty pink packaging! Love it!

The waterproof version comes in two shades:

  • Black
  • Blackest black

L’oreal describes this mascara as voluptuous volume, intense length, full lash fringe, and feathery soft.  There are 200+ bristles to catch every lash for a dramatic volumizing effect. There is also no flaking, no smudging, and no clumping.

A LITTLE BIO ABOUT MY LASHES

I have pretty stubborn lashes that don’t want to keep curled. They’ll curl and then a few hours later, back to no curl. They’re also very short so without mascara, you can’t even tell I have eyelashes!

HOW I USE IT

I curl my eyelashes using my Muji eyelash curler. Then I apply one coat of mascara onto my lashes! I start from the base of my eyelashes and work my way up in a zigzag motion. (I hope that makes sense). I add a few more coats until I am satisfied about how my eyelashes look.

FIRST IMPRESSION

I am using the color blackest black. This is a wet formula. But for me, the wet formula makes it so much easier to apply to my lashes. It dries fairly quick – quicker than most of my mascaras. When I blinked, the mascara didn’t transfer onto my undereyes.

YIKES! Welcome to my face! Here’s a close up of how the mascara looks on my eyelashes.

Smell: yes–floraly smell. I’m not a very big fan of the smell. I don’t understand why they put scents on things that go on your eye.

Length (✓): DAMN. SON. There was definitely a change in length.

Volume (✓): I loved the volume it gave my lashes!

Feathery Soft (✓): It is very lightweight and stays on all day.

No flaking (✓)

No smudging (✓): I yawn a lot throughout the day and my eyes get watery. Mascaras usually start smudging and then I get these dark smudges under my eyes. This mascara didn’t do that! I yawned all I wanted and nothing. YAY.

No clumping (✓): It did not clump like some of my other mascaras. Easy application and no mess!

After long hours of wearing this mascara, my eyelashes were still curled and in place. Removal is kind of a pain but it is waterproof. Just use some eye makeup remover and you should be fine!

This is definitely a drugstore mascara worth trying. Have you gotten your hands on this mascara? Let me know what you think!

Clarisonic Mia 2 Review

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

HELLOOO Friends! 

Ever since I started watching YouTube beauty gurus however long ago, I’ve seen many of them use the Clarisonic Mia 1 and 2. These beauty gurus pretty much did a great job convincing me that I needed one. I mean come on, the box itself says it cleanses 6x better than hands alone. UH YES I NEED THAT. But, that hefty price tag of $169 was what kept me away from purchasing one.

Around Mother’s Day time, the Clarisonic website had a promotion where if you bought their new foundation brush attachment, you’d get $40 off any brush of your choice. I did some calculating and even with the $35 foundation brush attachment, it was still cheaper than the Clarisonic alone. After some long thinking, I finally did it. I put in my credit card information, pressed submit order, and a week later… BAAM it was at my front door. (it was like Christmas day!! thanks mailman!)

The Mia 2 retails for $169.00. It is said to be have 2 speed facial sonic cleansing (delicate and universal). It comes with a sensitive brush head, trial size cleanser, travel case, and a 2 year warranty. It has a 1 minute pulsing T-Timer but to be honest, sometimes even after the 1 minute timer, I turn it back on cause my face don’t feel clean yet!

I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and this is what I thought about the Clarisonic Mia 2:

Pros:  My face does feels a lot cleaner than it used to be. To be honest, I thought the QVC and beauty guru people were exaggerating to make me want to buy it (and yes it worked..unfortunately..haha!) but my face does feel a lot softer! I did see the pores on my face shrink a little bit but not completely. When I apply makeup such as foundation, it seemed to go on a lot smoother. Even without makeup, my face looks a lot clearer and smoother…like a baby’s butt!

Cons: Like an electric tooth brush, you have to replace the brush head every 3 months. Now, these clarisonic brush heads are not cheap. They retail for about $27 each and $44 for pack of two. I read a lot of reviews where people love their Clarisonic but some have stopped using it because they didn’t want to buy the expensive brush head (totally understandable). Heh good thing I have a bunch of Ulta reward points saved up but its still an investment to think about.

Conclusion: I’ve only been using speed 1, which is “delicate” because someone recommended that as a new user, you should start with the lower speed. Maybe as I start using the “universal” speed, my skin will improve even more. Hmm..but, we’ll see. I’ll keep ya’ll updated. 🙂 Although it made my skin feel smoother, I don’t know if my skin feels 6x cleaner like it claims on the box…maybe 1x? 2x? I don’t think it’s necessary to have this device to achieve nice, clean skin. Pero like, I like it. I’m glad I finally made this purchase! YAY SKINCARE!

As always, thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this blog post. Make sure to like, comment, ask questions… er look around my blog if you’d like..laugh at my old posts like I do.. heheh OKAY BYE!
