I’m always excited to qualify for Influenster trials! Most recently, I was sent a complimentary Mega Mutliplier Mascara from Revlon.

Since I’m Asian, I have thin and relatively short eyelashes, so I’m always up for trying new mascaras. This particular mascara has 360 degree tubes that extend lashes for volume and length. I don’t tend to curl my eyelashes (because I’m scared of pulling the few I have out) but this drugstore mascara did a great job of making it appear like I have natural lashes.

It isn’t extremely dramatic but it feels natural. Adding this to my daily rotation of mascaras.


Guerlain Black Lashdress Mascara


I compulsively bought this Guerlain mascara because the wand was cute.


I feel like I can transform into a Sailor Scout if I yelled “Mercury Star Power!” or something.


The wand itself has a dress-like shape. It makes it easy to get every lash, including the bottom ones. I like that the mascara was not clumpy, it’s super light so I forget I’m wearing it. It’s good for volume and lengthening. It holds my curl too (but I do use a lash curler). It also has a weirdly pleasant smell, which I haven’t really noticed before in a mascara. I would definitely buy this again!

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.
