L'OREAL Voluminous Million Lashes mascara review

March 30, 2011
Hi Loves,
   Today, I want to make a review on L'OREAL defining volume mascara, that I've been using for the past 3 weeks.
   Voluminous Million Lashes is one of the latest L'OREAL product. Did it work for me? Let's find out!

L'OREAL claims that this mascara has:
:: No Clump Formula - gives you a clump-free, smudge-free look and will last all day;
:: Millionizer Brush amplifies and separate lashes, while building breathtaking (lol ) volume;
:: Clean Sweep Wiping System ensures that just the right amount of product is deposited on the brush.

It's Ophthalmologist and allergy tested,
Suitable for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers

How did it work on my lashes?
   I really like the formula of this product... it's light, creamy smooth and smells pretty decent. Mascara, indeed, stays on all day and doesn't smudge - my lashes definitely looked longer, but I would add more volume to it. Two layers of this mascara is a must, because it has tendency to clump after applying only one layer.

 Lashes looked longer, but not as thick as I would want it, so I guess this product would be perfect for people with thick, short lashes :)

   Packaging of this mascara is really pretty, gold bottle looks really classy and elegant. Plus for that for sure!  
   I have to admit, sometimes when I'm in a rush, I tend to forget to close my mascara's bottle tightly enough, in this product you can feel and hear a little *click* and you can be sure, that your mascara is safe and won't dry out that fast lol.

   I do like this product, but I would rather use a mascara, that's adding more volume, and thickness to my lashes, and makes my eyes to pop out a little bit more, than with Voluminous Million Lashes :)

Have a great day, Dolls! xoxo

Hair Care: Testing Almond Oil [ Update ]

March 8, 2011
Hi Beauties!
I love watching all these beauty gurus on yt, and few days ago I've watched an video about how farahdhukai‬‏ takes care of her hair. In the end of the video, she's talking about how amazing almond oil works on hair. As a big fan of everything that's beauty natural, I ordered one bottle, and right now I'm sitting with my hair in ballerina bun, having this oil in my hair. I want to wait until tomorrow, and wash it, and see the results! I'm pretty excited about the effects!

Blow drying, hair colouring and hard combing strokes damage the cuticle covering of the hair, this causes the hair to be dry and frizzy which makes it rough and dull. Contains almond, sesame, coconut oil to soften, moisturize and condition to give hair silky softness and shine.
Almond; conditions to make hair soft
Coconut oil: penetrates hair to strengthen and thicken
Sesame: coats hair to give shine.
I will edit this post tomorrow with the review + result! Did u girls try this product before? How did it work?

Ok Loves, yesterday I applied almond oil on my ends and middle section, today I washed and used conditioner on my hair like usually. Do I feel any difference? Definitely my hair's softer, which I love, I can't stop touching it lol. I haven't noticed a big difference in shine, but hey I used this oil only once.

   We will see how it will work on hair, after a good few uses, but so far I really like it :) Low price and natural ingredients - it's always worth trying :)
