Cosmetic Review: Bourjois Volumizer Mascara

I'm dying to try on this mascara after reading this...

Review: Bourjois Volumizer Mascara! by Aisling

Decided I'd do a very quick review on my favourite mascara at the moment!
When I say at the moment, I really mean for the past year at the least. And I have no interest in the slightest of changing it. Unless of course, they take it off the market. Which will cause me to cry on end for a few hours.. No joke!
This stuff is absolutely amazing. I'm not usually a fan of the two step mascara's as I find they clump and I somehow end up with black flakes all over my face after a few hours as a result of the clumping..
This isn't like that at all, even though I do find it looks much nicer after 2 weeks of use once it's kind of "broken in" if that makes sense..
These pictures were taken maybe two days after the mascara was opened for the first time but this is just to give the idea of the effect given after each step. Usually I'd be wearing eye shadow and liner, but there is nothing on my eyes other than the mascara in these photos. (And I have foundation on and my eyebrows are filled in but that shouldn't make a difference here!)

My eyes with no mascara

After step one

After step two
As you can see, even after step one my eye lashes look longer and really separated. This looks very natural and could be good for day time. Personally, I like to wear a lot of eye make up and rather the look after step two, even for during the day. :)
Hope this helped! :)

ASOS Naughty but Nice Cupcake Lip Gloss set

What do you think of keeping 'sweet' lip gloss in your purse?

Cosmetic Review: Bourjois Mascaras

I came across Bourjois Mascaras somewhere somehow... And thought, 'hey, maybe it's good to explore some other brand of mascaras although I have been loyal to Elianto's waterproof mascara for more than 6 years. The waterproof result was great but the experience of removing them is always been the paint in the ass.

I have not exactly placed the order to try on the Volumizer and am all excited about it. So I googled the reviews and found out one good review of all 13 of Bourjois' mascaras. Yeah, ALL 13 different types of their mascaras. Click here to read on the review written by All Women Stalk.

When it comes to Bourjois Mascaras, there's hardly any brand that can compete with Bourjois! I love everything about them - the performance, the packaging, the fact that they actually last longer than other expensive mascaras. There are now 13 Bourjois Mascaras on the market:
  1. Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara
  2. Bourjois Liner Effect Mascara
  3. Bourjois Volume Clubbing Ultra Black Mascara
  4. Bourjois Easy Waterproof Mascara
  5. Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara
  6. Bourjois Maxi Frange Mascara
  7. Bourjois Coupe De Theatre Mascara
  8. Bourjois Volume Glamour Mascara
  9. Bourjois Yes to Volume No to Clumps Mascara
  10. Bourjois Maxi-Fringe Waterproof Mascara
  11. Bourjois Talons Aiguilles Mascara
  12. Bourjois Pump Up The Volume Mascara
  13. Bourjois Pump Up The Volume Waterproof Mascara
But let's take a closer look at all these 13 Bourjois Mascaras and see which of them are truly worth the money!

How to: Punky Ponytail Tutorial

Punky Ponytail Tutorial - by Beautiful Shoes

How about a punky pony tail? Cool idea, which is not difficult at all. Simply follow the steps below.
Step 1 Brush your hair very well. Make is at smooth as possible
Step 2 Pick up the top section of your hair. You can easily do it by using the back of a teasing comb.
Step 3 Secure this section at the top of your head
Step 4 Pick up the rest of the hair and use a band to make a loose ponytail. You need to do so, in order to concentrate only on the top section of your hair
Step 5 Start french braiding the top section right to the end of the section. Start at the front by taking three equal sized sections and begin a simple three strand braid; you will then need to take a section from the left side and add it into the closest strand in the braid. Continue this with the right side too, alternating between the left and right side. Braid back to where your crown is and neatly secure in place with a hair band.
Step 6 Carefully brush your bottom section and make a neat pony tail, which includes the end of the braid as well.
Step 7 Use a little bit of hair underneath to cover the band, which secures the ponytail Secure in place with a bobby pin, ensuring that the hair band is hidden and the ends are neatly tucked away.

Prêt-À-Pretty, Pleasurefruit
Prêt-À-Pretty is a very pale warm pink/beige. This one is a very “Nicky Minaj” type shade. In other words, not easy to pull off!
Pleasurefruit is a bright warm pink and it’s utterly spectacular. It’s creamy, even and has a very slight shimmer with it. I adore it.

K-Wow, Simply Wow, Blushing Berry
K-Wow is a pale blue-based pink. Soft and pretty.
Simply Wow is a medium cool mauve shade. Shiny and nice.
Blushing Berry is a medium cool-toned red. A little uneven, but pretty.
Ok so normally I don’t like the click-pen style applicators because you have to twist or click them FOREVER to get the gloss to come out, then they gloop out too much. These I didn’t have to twist much to get them started, and it was a good amount that came out. I love the texture of these as well. The brush is really soft and nice to use and they aren’t sticky feeling. Very shiny and slick feeling. Me like!
