REVIEW: Avon Mark Big & Style Volume Mascara

10 comments
Hello everyone :)

Today I have a review of new Avon's Mark Big & style volume mascara. I've been testing it for a while now so I can finally give you my honest opinion.


Here are the ingredients:


As you can see the first ingredient is water, then polyurethane-35 which is a standard ingredient in mascara, it's not on any list of toxic chemicals. Also includes cera alba, which is bees wax plus dimethicone which is a silicone oil.


I like the design of the mascara, it's standard for all their Big & ... mascaras :) You get 10 ml of product for 6,50€. Comes in two colours, brown black and black which is the colour I chose.


The first thing I did not like about this mascara is the wand. It's actually really big and I'm always scared to use it near my eyes. It has short and long bristles which are promised to help to add volume to every lash. I like my lashes really big and bold. The effect it gives, well ... nothing special at all. It did colour my lashes black but otherwise I did not see any volume. It also didn't separate my lashes which I want from mascara the most.

Here you can see my natural lashes, without mascara:

And with two coats of Mark mascara:

I naturally have quite long lashes as you can see on the before pictures, so other than giving them colour the mascara performed really poorly. But it also depends on what you like, if you like a natural look, this one might be for you. I like that it doesn't smudge at all.


PROS:

- doesn't smudge
- ingredients

CONS:
- doesn't give a lot of volume or length
- big wand that I'm actually quite scared of :D


To conclude, I prefer my lashes dramatic and this mascara definitely isn't one for that. It will however give you a nice natural look. If you like that, go for it.

Have you tried it, what do you think?
Happy Weekend,
Katja

LookFantastic Beauty Box - September

32 comments
Hey loves :)

Another month, another LookFantastic beauty box :) The theme this month is The Birthday Edit, because LookFantastic celebrates their birthday this month :)



You get an Elle magazine with the box. It costs 20€ with a free shipping and let me tell you, I've been subscribed for quite some time now and I absolutely love the boxes.


Let's jump into it!



1. Holly's Lollies - Elderflower Flavour



A sweet celebration deserves something sweet! Enjoy this little treat specially made for us to celebrate our birthday.


2. Decleor Hydra Floral Hydrating Gel Cream


This unique formula is enriched with Moringa Olifeira extract and Neroli essential oils, which help to keep the skin hydrated while creating a protective layer against pollution. The gel cream texture also makes the perfect make up base for a luminous finish.


3. Illamasqua Mini Contouring Gel Sculpt - Silhouette


With its unique texture, the Illamasqua Mini contouring gel sculpt helps you create a very subtle definition to your cheeks, jawline and temples. For a more dramatic look, you can simply layer the product to intensify the colour.


4. Hikari Eyeshadow Quad - Tonya



Affordable, highly pigmented and the perfect colour combo, it's a quad that will never leave your makeup stash. There are two neutral matte shades and two darker shimmering shades to help you play around with colour and texture.


5. Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste with pure rassoul clay and rose extracts


One of the latest new gems from famous French haircare brand Christophe Robin, this volumising paste with pure Rassoul Clay and Rose extracts will give density to your hair while protecting and preserving your hair colour.


5. LookFantastic Unicorn Eyeshadow Brush


As it's our birthday we wanted to treat you! So we have made a special and limited edition unicorn eye shadow brush so yo can pair it with your new favourite eyeshadow quad. A match made in heaven.


6. Eve Lom Cleanser And Muslin Cloth


It would not be a birthday box without the world's most desired cleanser. A multi-purpose balm that fits all skin types and skin concerns; the Even Lom Cleanser leaves the skin beautifully radiant and healthy. When combined with the Muslin cloth, it will exfoliate, tone and improve the skin circulation.


I am again speechless and this box must be my favourite ever. Love the Illamasqua gel sculpt, I've been using it everyday!

Hope you enjoyed <3

Empties #34

9 comments
Hey guys :)

It's September already and it's time for new empties post. Let's just start ;)


MojDan Cleansing Wipes 3 in 1 - these are affordable and work nice. Love using them after work when I'm too lazy to properly remove my makeup.

Repurchase: I did already.


Vichy Liftactiv Supreme & Neovadiol - both samples I got for free with my order on Feel Unique. Honestly, I didn't like either of them, they were nothing special at all.

Purchase: Nop.


Avon Rio Cocktail Cooling Shower Gel - a summery scent that I really enjoyed. It smelled like limes with rum, nice scent overall :)

Repurchase: It was limited edition. 

Avon Refreshing Lagoon Shower Gel - this one smelled like pears and I loved it even more, plus it was very hydrating. A win in my book :)

Repurchase: Maybe, I like to try different scents.


Parodontax Classic - forever repurchasing this toothpaste. The only one that helps me with bleeding gums, plus it contains no fluoride.

Repurchase: Forever.


Oriflame Love Nature Shampoo Nettle & Lemon - It actually was nice, my hair didn't get greasy that quickly, but I have dandruff problem and this one did not help me with that.

Repurchase: No.

Subrina Cherry Blossom Shower Gel - if you've been a follower of mine for some time you noticed this shower gel ;) I absolutely love it. The scent is really nice, gentle and lingers on my skin for quite some time. Love it!

Repurchase: Definitely!


Imedeen Advanced Beauty Shot - this was included in my LookFantastic beauty box. I didn't notice it doing anything, but of course it was only one shot of 15 ml Collagen and Vitamin C.

Purchase: No.

Oriflame Spiced Citrus Soap Bar - I'm not a big fan of this spicy frangrance. I did use it up but I wouldn't buy it again.

Repurchase: No.


Balea Nosestrips - these are quite pricey but it worked nice for me.

Repurchase: Maybe.

BioAqua Tender Mask - Animal Panda - I loved the mask, it felt really refreshing and nourishing. My skin after was very soft and felt very moisturized. I got it for free to review.

Purchase: Maybe.


Essence Lipstick 65 Glow Neon Glow - this one is so old I just had to throw it away. However it was a nice colour.

Repurchase: It's discontinued.


Dove Silk Dry Deodorant - I enjoyed it. It worked nice but nothing special however. I think the price is quite high and my usual Balea deodorants work just as nice.


Repurchase: Maybe if it's on sale.

Avon Dreams Perfume - it's a sweet floral fragrance. I liked the scent but unfortunately it didn't last on me very long. Disappointing.


Repurchase: No.

And we came to the end :) As you can see I finished quite some products ;)


Happy Monday!
Kisses,
Katja
