Lancome Grandiose Mascara

My latest Influenster Canada Voxbox was Lancome’s new Grandiose Mascara. It was presented beautifully in a black box.
IMG_0238There’s a certain elegance to the bottle that gives it a luxurious feel. The top has a lovely rose decal inside the clear plastic.
IMG_0239The want itself touts a “swan neck”. The greatest thing about this wand is that it allows for easy application to the second eye with my weak hand. I can change the angle of the brush so that mascara doesn’t end up on my face.

IMG_0256I enjoyed this mascara a lot because it thickens and lengthens my lashes. There’s also no clumping so I don’t end up a racoon by the end of the day. This is definitely going in my daily make-up bag.

First Impressions: Tony Moly Latte Art Milk- Cacao Pore Pack

IMG_2613

As you may know from previous posts, I’ve been obsessed with Asian beauty products because of their adorable design and affordable prices. Plus, Asian people never seem to age so they must work right? Recently, I picked up this Cacao Pore Mask thing from Tony Moly. It came in an adorable mug shaped container!

The product inside was multi-coloured and reminded me of the chocolate and vanilla soft serve mix from ice-cream trucks. It smelled like chocolate and Baileys Irish Cream.

The directions said it had to all be mixed together before using. After mixing, it turned into a greyish brown. The mask is to be applied and left on for 10-15 minute before washing off. When I applied it there was a tingling and almost burning sensation for the first minute or so but it went away. I could feel my pores tightening and within 10 minutes, the mask was fully dry.

After I washed it off, my face was soft and smooth. I felt like it also lightened my skin and hid the redness that I usually have on my cheeks as well as temporarily hid my pores. Not bad for a product that was only $10! You can watch my live first impressions on Youtube. My favourite part was its chocolatey smell that was good enough to eat.

I am not leaving the house today so I kept it simple. I used pale white eyeshadow as highlight and some simple brown eyeliner. I dyed my hair dark brown today and a dark lip really compliments it.
