Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara – Review

Revlon-Mega-Multiplier-Mascara-Review-1

Looking for a triple threat mascara? Your search ends here.

I’m not going to lie, but when I received this mascara in the mail, I wasn’t the most enthused. Based on the packaging, it wasn’t waterproof and it wasn’t black, so I had low expectations for this mascara. But, I was proven wrong.

What I like about the Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara:

  • It holds a curl: This is what I look for most in a mascara. I was shocked that for a formula that doesn’t claim to be waterproof, it held a curl really well.
  • It separates lashes: I don’t like clumpy lashes, and I found that the mascara wand separates lashes well.
  • It lengthens: This mascara is a triple threat — a mascara that curls, separates and lengthens is really difficult to find in one formula.
  • Easy to take off with a makeup wipe: A huge pro for this mascara is that it performs like a waterproof mascara, but doesn’t come with the pain of taking off waterproof mascara — which means no eyelash casualties in the process.
  • Didn’t bleed at the gym: I applied this mascara in the morning, wore it for a full working day, went to the gym later that evening and it didn’t bleed after doing one hour of cardio. Miracles really do happen…

What I didn’t like about the Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara:

  • The colour: I never purchase brown mascara, so if I were to repurchase this mascara, I would definitely buy the blackest one they have.
  • It felt heavy: Taking off this mascara at the end of the day felt so liberating! I felt like it weighed my lashes down.

Looks like the pros outweigh the cons. If you’re on the hunt for a drugstore mascara, I would give this mascara a go. The winning factor for me is that it’s a triple threat mascara (curls, separates and lengthens), and to get that in a drugstore price, you really can’t go wrong.

Note: I received this product complimentary to test from Influenster.

The Snapchat filters in London are so cool.

I wasn’t expecting to spend an entire day on Oxford Street, but it happened. I wanted to visit stores that weren’t in Canada, so those included Liberty (this is the prettiest department store EVER), Selfridges, John Lewis, Debenhams, Dorothy Perkins, Mango, New Look, Primark, Superdrug, Boots (<3) and the list goes on. I didn’t do a lot of shopping for clothes, but I did spend some money on makeup…

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Review and Swatches – Solow, Bumble, Tulle

If you follow ColourPop on social media, you know that the Ultra Matte Lips have been long-awaited and anticipated by beauty lovers well before the launch date. Many brands have been jumping on the liquid lipstick bandwagon: Anastasia Beverly Hills, L.A. Girl, Lime Crime, and the list goes on. The day the Ultra Matte Lips launched on the ColourPop website… let’s just say the word madness does not describe it enough. I refreshed the page like a madwoman to no avail—that website was just not cooperating with me that day. After an hour of refreshing, I put my laptop to rest.

The next morning, I tried again. A ton of shades were sold out, but all of the shades that I wanted were still available. PRAISE. THE. LORD. (It was a Ramadan miracle!) So I snatched up Solow, Bumble and Tulle.

Onwards to the swatches!

My MAC Eyeshadow Palette | Swatching Oddity

Once upon a time, I was a MAC eyeshadow junkie and collected a whole slew of 15 MAC eyeshadows. There are some eyeshadows in here that I absolutely adore and some, not so much. I’ll share which eyeshadows those are and swatches, too! (Also, if you are wondering why the texture of some of the eyeshadows look strange, it’s because I may have dropped this palette on more than one occasion… oops).

MOVING ON!
