I don’t usually use mousse foundations, because my previous experiences with it hasn’t really worked out for me.So when I received it as a gift from Terri Lucks MUA I was quite keen to see how it works this time around and I was quite happy with the outcome of the Catrice Matt Mousse foundation.
This is the second time I am purchasing this foundation,and what always draws me to it,is the amazing full coverage I achieve when I apply it.Mac Studio Sculpt foundation I would say is best for dry to combination.My T-Zone is extremely dry so normally when I apply foundation after a while it start flaking in between my eyebrows,which has not happened with this foundation.
Two months ago or so the Garnier Micellar Waterwas launched and many reviews were doing the rounds.As much as I wanted to give it a try to let you guys know what I thought of it,I guess I totally missed the bandwagon and then I received the Lipidol Cleansing Oil from Beauty Bulletin and figured I would give this one a miss.
This week’s prompt was Candyland (clickhere to see the full months prompts). What a perfect opportunity for me to use the straight line vinyls I got free when I purchased my christmas set from Because I Shop.EPIC.FAIL.
A week or so ago, I received this product via courier from the awesome fairies over at Beauty Bulletin.The title (hashtag) is probably to emphasise the clear packaging (it came in a clear plastic packet and inside a clear bottle with blue liquid inside, obviously going for the minimalist approach, and it works ,the packaging looks great and the bottle gets the colour from the oil inside.
I subscribe to the awesome review website Beauty Bulletin and have received two sets of products so far,the first was Batiste Dry Shampoo(My Youtube Video Below)
And the second is the products I will be reviewing today Avon’s SuperExtend Liquid Liner and Mascara.
So for the pass few months I have been using the Essence get big! lashes volume curl mascara(R44.50) which I love as you don’t have to apply too many coats to get your desired effect.
I have been struggling to master the art of the winged eyeliner for a very long time and no matter how many videos I youtube’d or how many pintrest tutorials,I checked out I just could not get it right(but that’s a story for another video).Needless to say when then courier pulled up with these product I was excited for days.
I used the product and it is a very good product for the price range.
As you all know I am a huge Chanel fan and of course I need to do the test(comparing the two products)
This is the result;
Left – Chanel Right -Avon
So for me the Chanel took the prize, It’s darker(liquid liner) and adds more volume(mascara).
I had to put on quite a few coats of the Avon mascara for it to be that dark vs 2 coats of the Chanel Mascara
Pricing: Mascara: Avon is about R120 and the Chanel is R485.
The liquid liner was open for about 3 days(supposed to last 6 months after opening) and it was already dry compared to the Chanel which is already 2 months old.
However I must add that for a product in this price it’s a good product and will do what you require it too.
P.S I wanted to do a video(how to),so I could attach it to this post and then eishkom happened and I didn’t have much time thereafter.I will be completing it this week be sure to be on the look out for it.mwah.
Just would like to give a special thanks to Sunè Parris for cleaning up my end greeting and making it nice for your reading pleasure.
