New Product (semi) Love: Cover Girl Lash Blash Length

30 April 2010

You've read that right - only Semi-Love this product.
it was love at first sight for the following reasons:

1. it's bright yellow - i was told yellow compliments my skin tone :P

2. it's from Lash Blast family - which is one of my fave drugstore brand

3. drew barrymore's photo next to the stand

so if it's love at first sight, why the "semi-love"?as always, once the novelty wore off and you're not in the infatuation stage, you'll realise your true feelings (and yes we are still talking about the mascara). Here's what I found out:

1. Formulation is great - no flakes! I rub my eyes due to contact lenses and usually at the end of the day i'll see flakes of mascara under my eye but this baby is a true trooper.

2. Brush - superb especially for short lashes. it reminds me of that Maybelling mascara that is marketed for Asian lashes - very tiny so you get precise application and it's great on the lower lashes too :)

3. It really does lengthen your lashes which is what it promises BUT that's not what I want.You can say "then why did you buy it then?" and I'll answer you "love at first sight".

Verdict:
All in all, i only semi-love this mascara for the fact that it doens't really give my lashes that extra oomph that I get when I user my MUFE mascara or the normal Lash Blast (orange tube).

Even if you apply 2-3 or even 4 coats, it still no oommphh which is kinda disappointing. You would think that it will lengthen it and if you apply numerous coats and it will volumise it too? Nah!

Saying that, this mascara is great for those already with thick lashes because it will help them comb through the lashes on every coat making it "neat" so if you love spider lashes then stay away

I would still use this especially on my lower lashes and I will keep it in my bag only beacuse it's yellow :)

Neutrogena and I = Together Forever :)

Neutrogena has done it again :)


I am scared that one day Neutrogena will discontinue the range that I love the most - Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Cleanser/Mask - I like the fact that you can use it as a mask or a cleanser.

I seriously would marry this product :) Every time I veer on something else my skin retaliates by breaking out around the chin area so I always come back to this baby and after 3 days my skin is back to normal. Therefore, I declare this as staple in my skin care routine.

I recently started using one of Neutrogena's new range - Acne Stress Control Range and I am currently using the Power Clear Scrub

I got so intrigued by the words "Acne Stress Control", "Power Clear Scrub", "Oil Free". Don't you think these words are just perfectly marketed to suckers like me?

I've been using this for almost 5 weeks now and let say that I don't really find anything different from my other scrubs. Maybe the "beads" itself, they are bigger compared to my MAC Volcanic Ash. I am not sure if I will repurchase but I would recommend it for sure.

Both products gives you that tingly feeling after you rinse it off which is my favourite effect of all :)

If you ask me which is my favourite among the two, I would say the 2-on-1 cleanser/mask because it just works better on my skin.

Have you tried any of these?

In and Out for March-April 2010

In and Out
IN
1. Cool mornings and nights - it's fall!! soon it's winter! my favourite season of all :) i got everything ready, i've invested on a good leather jacket, ankle boots, skinny jeans and scarves! i am set!

2. MAC Studio Sculpt foundation - this is my fave foundation for winter. it's very moisturising because of the shea butter in it :) so it's coming out of the drawer once again.

3. MAC Cherish lipstick and MAC Fresh Salmon (LE) - 2 of my favourite lipsticks at the moment. i'll be doing a different post about it with photos hopefully

4. Short Hair - yes! i've cut my hair! my looooong hair is not just above my shoulders. it's liberating and fresh. i miss my long hair though so i think no more trips to hairdresser any time soon :)

5. Organic Shampoo/Conditioner - i am back to using my "Natural Instincts" shampoo/conditioner combo because my hair needs some love :)

6. Being single - if you're following me on Twitter then you might have seen my very public twitter meltdown. This is also my reason for being away and not posting. This is a new territory for me but hey i've been there before :) all i have to do is find my way back to me... and only me :)

7. Ultimate trip - i can't tell you details yet but please pray that this will happen! if it does then there will be a 'meet-up' happening :)
