Something Different

Summer has quickly left me and I do not like it one bit! I am not too eager for the infamous Canadian winter season. But before I jump too ahead of myself, autumn is still ahead of us. One of the few things which I do look forward to in autumn are the darker lip colours. This look was inspired by the autumn months and my fascination with block heeled platform sandals. Enjoy:

Dior or L’Oreal Mascara?

Looking for a Mascara? Don’t be fooled by the price. I recently purchased the Dior Blackout Mascara, which sells for $31 plus tax from Sephora, and my first impression of it was not good. The formula is excessively creamy and does not keep your lashes up, even when curled. I do not have the fullest of lashes but I thought this mascara would bring them out since the colour is extremely black. When I first used it, I took it off immediately because it did nothing to my lashes. Taking it off was difficult and messy!ย  The only positive thing about this mascara was the packaging and the intensity of the colour.

Ready  1The packaging is simple and chic, two of the best combinations for makeup.

If you’re looking for a good mascara try the L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga. This mascara has a great formula for keeping your lashes up and costs less than half of what Dior would cost you. This has become has everyday choice for mascara.

The expensive makeup isn’t always the best. Never underestimate drugstore brands. Sometimes you just might find the perfect product for you! I would give the Dior Blackout Mascara a 2 out of 10, just because the cololur is intensely black but nothing else about this mascara is good. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I would definitely rate the L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara a 10/10, I absolutely love it!
