I got an eye lash extension at Kosmetik Jessica in Liestal and I absolutely love the result. So without further ado I want to show you how she did it and wanna tell you a bit more about my extensions.
I DID IT – I tested some MASCARAS and had a bit of help with testing them. I am not a daily mascara user and I had my issues with several other mascaras before so therefore I am the best judge 🙂 I found all of them for very very decent prices at the parfumcity online shop and I couldnt believe what awesome products they sell there, absolutely worth to visit. ok, lets have a look at different mascaras for different purposes.
whats on the menu today?
ASTOR big and beautiful boom killer volume mascara
oh wow – yes this mascara makes BIG and BEAUTIFUL lashes. I love the wand and the product stays put the whole day without irritating my eyes.. I hate it when mascaras flake and often the tiny parts end up in my eyes – so thats a BIG plus for that one and actually all the other ones I have tested. not one flaked! another nice thing is that you can either wear one coat for a rather casual look and then later on apply more coats for a more dramatic eyemakeup. 11.75 CHF (mascara 12ml, makeupremover)
BOURJOIS PARIS volume glamour mascara
this mascara promises VOLUME and GLAMOUR and I felt both, the wand separates the lashes and therefore applies more volume the glamour factor comes with the rest of the makeup and the compliments that one gets for her mascara! compared to the ASTOR mascara this one is a bit more decent and less dramatic. perfect for everyday business look. 10.75 CHF (mascara 12ml + kajal)
BOURJOIS PARIS volume 1 second mascara
volume in one second, well that was not true for me as it takes me a bit longer to apply mascara 🙂 but once I was done there was the volume. so far all of the mascaras have held their promises and thats a big PLUS. the 1 SECOND volume mascara has a medium sized wand and separates the lashes like the volume glamour mascara. I felt like this one is a bit more dramatic than the one mentioned before. but still after layering a couple of coats I had a very stunning eye look.
13.00 CHF (mascara 12ml)
LANCOME hypnose drama mascara
the queen among the mascaras and not only due to its prize. I can really see a difference between this high end product and the rather cheaper ones. so in the end you get what you pay. I know, it is not always the case, some cheaper products can do more than other more expensive ones but with the mascaras I gotta stick to what I said. you feel the difference in the consistency and how easy it can be removed. thats a huge bonus because our eyes area are very sensitive and rubbing the eyes with a cotton pad full of eye makeup remover irritates the skin. I got the DRAMA mascara in a set with eyemakeUp remover and I found that a great deal!
40.75 CHF (mascara + eyemakeup remover + eye cream)
OOH DEARS – last night I had so much fun at the M.A.C. bloggers event at HILTL in Zurich.
I met wonderful swiss bloggers and memorized some very useful makeUp tricks. The focus of the workshop was lashes – yeah, lashes became really big these days – especially the fakelashes. I noticed that I have seen way more women wearing fakelashes on a daily base than I did in earlier times. So there is a trend for big expressive lashes. People who know me they know that I very rarley use mascara myself 🙂 but for special occasion I love to wear a dramatic eyemakeup but for my everyday look I will always go with a bright lip instead of a dramatic eyelook.
I was sitting next to FABIENNE from swissmakeupblog.chand across from MIA miaslittlecorner.blogspot.ch and LARISSA from www.laruemarie.com and there was MELANIE a M.A.C. makeUp artist which helped me a lot. thanks girls! It was a blast!
On the way back to Basel I was traveling with lovely MIA and I asked her this question: “If you can only take one makeUp product with you – what would you pick?” She thought about it for a moment and answered “concealer” – without concealer I look tired. I think its so interesting to get to know other girls opinion about their faces and makeUp looks. If I had to answer the question I asked her I would of course pick a bright lipstick because I look very boring with no color in my face 🙂
thank you M.A.C. for the lovely presents – I will soon show you what I got and will also share some amazing news regarding M.A.C. – all I can say for now is RIRI <3
I took a lot of notes from the helpful tricks all the bloggers shared and I will soon post a M.A.C. bloggers events tricks special and share all my notes with y’all. stay tuned! xx
