This was an okay mascara for me; I actually really liked the brush itself - it "grabbed" at my lashes and coated them with ease. The formula left something to be desired however. This claims to plump the lashes but I'd say that clump is a better descriptor - after using this my lashes were just clumped together in groups, particularly if I tried to build it up with more than just one coat. It definitely delivered on length but I found that it gave my lashes that thin, spidery look that I'm just not a fan of. One of the claims that excited me the most about this mascara was "flake-free, smudge-proof wear". While this doesn't smudge on me, it still flakes, although less than other mascaras.I don't like tubing mascaras mainly for their removal process; it's just an extra step that I can't be bothered with. I'd prefer to just stick to using a cleanser and micellar water after to remove my mascara. Personally, I won't be purchasing this mascara once this tube is complete. I like thick and voluminous lashes and this is really more of a lengthening mascara. In addition, despite it's claims, it flaked on me and I found the removal process tedious. Unfortunately it's not the mascara for me. Revlon Mega Multiplier™ Mascara
Amazing palette! The majority of the shadows are highly pigmented, buttery and blendable; in addition the palette offers a good selection of matte, shimmer and glitter shades. The chocolate scent is probably my favourite part of the entire palette - it makes me happy just using this in the morning.
My only complaint is that I have to apply the shimmery shades with a light hand, otherwise they tend to irritate my sensitive eyes during the day. Otherwise, I highly recommend it!
This stuff is a miracle for dry or dehydrated skin and is my go-to primer for the dry winter months. My foundation applies like a dream when I wear this underneath and it keeps my skin looking smooth and lumunious. The only drawback is that my skin does look slightly oilier than usual by the end of the day, but a blotting paper fixes that in a cinch. Totally recommend!
I have never been a fan of bacon flavored chips in the past as they always tasted overly smoky and synthetic tasting to me. I've enjoyed all of the other Kettle Chip flavors I had tried so I picked these up out of curiosity but with low expectations.
I was pleasantly surprised with these - they're delicious! They have a sweet yet slightly smoky flavor and taste like bacon but in a good way - no synthetic taste at all. Highly recommended!
I found the shampoo to be thick and luxurious feeling; it lathered well and had a fairly potent but pleasant scent (hard to describe – I find L’Oreal shampoos all have a very similar scent – kind of perfumey?) I did shampoo twice as I always do with any shampoo (I wash my hair every 3 days and I find it necessary to wash it twice to get rid of the build-up and really get my hair clean).
The conditioner was thick as well – it was really rich and creamy. I could feel the moisture in it as I worked it through my hair. Note that because my hair is fine, I focus first on the ends and sparingly use what is left over on my roots. I left it in for approximately 1-2 minutes and then rinsed it out.
Once I’m out of the shower, I usually let my hair dry for a bit while wrapped up in a towel, and then I comb through it with a wide toothed comb. Typically this is a bit of a struggle as my hair tangles easily; I did notice it didn’t seem quite as tangled as normal and it was a little easier to comb through.
After combing out my hair, I applied a few pumps and distributed through my hair, focusing on the ends as directed. This is a cream product with a slightly thin consistency. It appeared to absorb nicely into my hair, without feeling greasy or leaving behind any residue. It had the same scent as the shampoo and conditioner.
I then added my usual products to my hair (volumizing mousse and a thermal styling spray); I thought it was only fair to use this in conjunction with my normal hair routine. As I was blow drying my hair, I noticed my hair felt silky and smoothr than normal, but it also felt like it had a bit of a film on it. That wasn’t much of a surprise to me – anytime I use a product that is heavy and rich, it kind of clings to my hair rather than be absorbed by it. I then curled my hair using my curling iron and went about my day.
When I got home after work that same day I noticed that the back half of my hair had fallen a bit flat and my hair felt a little heavier than usual. When I woke up the next morning, my hair was greasier and oilier than usual, although my dry shampoo took care of that problem pretty quickly. By Day 3 however, my hair noticeably more greasy and oily than, and my dry shampoo really wasn’t cutting it. My hair was pretty limp and lifeless and felt really weighed down. I was really happy to wash it the following day.
Overall, I could see this shampoo working wonders for damaged to severely damaged hair. I personally don’t feel like my hair is in either of those categories right now so I just found it a bit too much for me. In addition, I don’t see this as a shampoo that I could use everyday or every time I wash my hair – it’s a bit too heavy and rich. I’ve decided that I’m going to use these as deep conditioning treatments and pull them out once a month to help keep my hair in good shape. As this is not its intended use, I’m not certain it’s going to work as well as it should however.
I did like the Anti-Split End Cicamide Creme and will keep that close by to apply to my ends before I pull out my hot brush/curling iron on Days 2 and 3. I like having a product to smooth and moisturize my ends on the days in between washing as they tend to look a little dry and frizzy. Plus I feel it will help protect my ends from the heat sources as well.
