L'Oreal False Lash Wings Intenza

I was very sad to see my Miss Mango go. I almost immediately replaced it with the all new sparkling False Lash Wings Intenza mascara from L'Oreal. I'm sure you've all heard about this already. Or it's predecessor.

It comes in a silver-chromed packaging with a red top. the bottle design is the same as on the Miss Manga mascara. The brush is a silicone number that I do not care for at all! I just don't like silicone brushes! But that is my personal opinion. They tend to clump up the product and irritate my eyes. The formula is very dry and waxy. You have to be quick about getting one coat on and get it right almost straight away because you can't faff around with it. The formula is so dry that it won't allow it! I've never had a mascara with this dry formula before! Annoying to the max! But on the plus side it is intensely black!
It claims it have fibers in it but honestly, I haven't noticed. But I have noticed that it's near on impossible to get even on both eyes! One eye gets really well and the other gets totally messed up!

In total this was a total fail for me! Might actually throw it away. Mascaras are a thing that you shouldn't pass on to others due to bacteria. Or I would give it to my sister so she could give a second opinion on it! Sorry love!

Volume Million Lashes Top Coat

This is a brand sparkling new product from L'Oreal and so far I haven't heard anyone in the blogosphere talk about this yet. So I might be the first!

The Volume Million Lashes range have been around for ages. I've had some L'Oreal mascaras over the years but none of the from the Million Lashes family. This is not your typical mascara either. This is a glittery topcoat! Very festive and seasonably appropriate. Especially for the New Year and all your Christmas parties!

I've had it for a few days now and I've worn it every single day! Except for one. Which I will get to in a bit.
It comes in L'Oreals standard packaging but with a gorgeous purple top with silver sparkles. The product itself is a clear formula dosed with sparkly bits that glistens in every color under the sun. The wand is a silicony awkward piece. Do not care for that at all. It does the job alright but I wish it would be more of a comb than just a thing they threw in there. I use my ordinary mascara as usual but I wait for it to dry properly before I put the glittery top coat on. It's a very subtle glitter and every day appropriate. It just gives your lashes a little bit of glam. Nothings that's in your face. Pun intended. It looks really nice and wears throughout the whole day and doesn't smudge, smear or go all over your face. Fantastic? Yes it truly is, except for one minor annoying detail. You may have created the perfect flared out lashes but this will somehow throughout the day clump them together and make them look more like spiderlegs than butterflylashes. This might just be a silly occurrence with my current mascara. I will try to pair it with my old Miss Manga mascara tomorrow and see if it yields a different result. Worth mentioning is that my current mascara is also from L'Oreal. It will be in my next post. So keep an eye out for that. The day without this was to see if it was my mascara acting up or if it truly was the top coat.

I haven't had any allergic reactions to it. Some does get that from having glittery products near their eyes. I didn't test it out before I got it, but if you can, I would recommend you to do it. No point in spending money on a thing you can't use. No matter how tempting it looks.

Have you tried this? Is it launched yet where you live?

November Favorites

This month has been filled with beauty goodies. I'm sure I've forgotten to put something in.

 Do we recognize some of them? thihi.
 My Donna Karan "My NY" edp., which is amazing! If you haven't smelled it already, do! Walking on eggshells from Wetnwild, Love in Rio from NYX and my new day cream Skin perfection from L'Oreal.
 My headset from AKG, love the color! And the Sunny bronzer from NYC.
Left in the background we have an oldie but a goodie, Pink Gold from Maybelline and a new obsession of mine- my new face wash from Ole Henriksen. It's the African red tea foaming cleanser. This on it's own could be my entire November favorite! And hiding in the far back of everything, my expert face brush from Real Techniques.

What have you guys been loving this grey and cold month?
