Top 4 Mascaras

Hello Everyone,

I’ve recently noticed that there are four (4) main mascaras that I’ve really been loving and using on a daily basis and just love everything about these products. Here are the four I’ve been into…

Buxom Lash Mascara (High-End)FullSizeRender (1)
I love that this product doesn’t clump up your lashes at all, and what’s funny is that I was definitely worried that the big wand would actually do that. I find that these bristles are perfect for grabbing all of the lashes and really pulling them along. This product last quite long, I know you shouldn’t have your mascara for long but this one is still in good standing.
Score: 9/10
Price: $24 (Sephora)

L’Oreal – Voluminous Million Lashes  (Low-End) FullSizeRender (4)This mascara definitely does what it says, VOLUME. I love the bristles, they are short and don’t move intensely so once again you can grab all the lashes. What I also love is that for a big bristle it seems to work perfectly for my fair and sparse lashes. The formula is also good, its not to wet but also drys a bit slowly so its easy to work with.
Score: 8/10
Price: ~ $12-14 (Shoppers Drug Mart)

Dior – Maximizer Lash Plumping (High-End)

FullSizeRender (3)
What can I say about this base mascara, is that I LOVE it. It’s a perfect base for your mascara and it doesn’t leave them white at all. I got this one as a sample when I was at the Dior counter, and I fell in-love with it. I’ve been using this every time I put on my mascara. It helps to set your lashes so that way when you put on the actual mascara it’s already set in place and the sole purpose is to darken the lashes.
Score: 8.5/10
Price: $36 (Sephora)

Covergirl – Clump Crusher (Low-End)

FullSizeRender (2)This mascara isn’t fully black, its actually black-brown. I always love to have that option in my mascaras for the days that I don’t want intense black lashes, usually for work. Again some of my favourites from this mascara is the bristles, the formula is nice and smooth. Definitely doesn’t give you any clumps, the formula is a little more on the wet side so you have to be careful when applying. I would definitely recommend this low-end mascara.
Score: 9/10
Price: ~$8-9 (Shoppers Drug Mart)

I would love to hear what some of your favourite mascaras and the recommendations, I’m always interested in trying something new. Please leave a comment.


Topbox February 2015


Benefit Box

Hello all,

It’s my first ever opening of the Topbox for the month of February and what a perfect month to start with, the month of love. As well, it’s a nice start to my subscription by getting all Benefit products to try out. Which I have been wanting to, just never got around to deciding which one but now I can try all of them, so much excitement here. But here are the products that I’ve received in my box for the month of February of 2015.

  • Roller Lash Mascara – this product is coming soon to the market for actual purchase so I guess I’m getting to try this product before it even comes out, how exciting! It claim in the description that it’s an “eye-opening Hook n’ Roll brush that grabs, separates, lifts and curls”. The retail price will be $29 CAD.
  • POREfessional Primer –  I’ve heard such amazing things regarding this primer from Benefit, it seems that in the blogging/youtube world this is the go to primer. I’m truly excited to try it out. It claims that it “minimizes the appearance of pores & fine lines … oil-free formula complements all skin tones and helps makeup stay put”. I’m excited to see if that is actually true. The retail price is $37 CAD.
  • Potent! Eye Cream –  I’m not really an under-eye cream kind of girl, I don’t know why I never got into it, probably should protect those delicate babies but I’m a terrible at it. I’m terrible at moisturizing so how can I keep up with an under eye cream. But I’m excited to try this Benefit one, hopefully it does what is says which is “fades dark circles & helps smooth fine lines for brighter, younger looking eyes”. I definitely have dark circles, even though I get the proper amount of sleep, damn those genes of mine. The retail price is $40 CAD, a little bit on the pricy side but I’ll see if it’s worth it.
  • Puff off eye gel –  Now this is the real product that I’m extremely excited for, I seem to have the morning puffy eyes, I don’t know why. I get enough amount of sleep but somehow my body I guess disagrees with me and wants me to be hideous looking in the morning. So this product I have really high HOPES that it will help with the puffiness. I’ll definitely do a review and let you all know if its worth the retail price of $35 CAD.

All of these products can be purchased either at Shoppers Drug Mart or Sephora in Canada. I’ll come back with a review for some of these products to let you know if it’s worth the price or if it does what it claims. If you want me to review something specifically let me know in the comments section.
