Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes

Standard

I bought the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes mascara, and on first swipe, I was unimpressed. But for $29 you bet I was going to use it! And something happened…

It’s been two months of using this product and I’ve realized what the draw is. That brush!! It catches every single lash and brings it front and center! While the mascara itself is nice, it offers a lovely fanned out natural look, I prefer something bolder and thicker like Benefit’s Roller Lash or Urban Decay’s Perversion.

However, that being said, I think anyone who likes a natural look but wants each individual lash to show, this one is for you! I think I might try the legendary lashes to see if I can get a thicker mascara but with Charlotte’s amazing brush!

Here is a photo of one eye with Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes, and the other eye has nothing.

Okay, wow that’s a close up isn’t it? Well, you can see the difference in lashes, and ┬ájust ignore that I haven’t done my brows yet. But seriously, look at all of the lashes! I didn’t know I had so many!

So, TL;DR This mascara grew on me, and I would repurchase it.

L’Oreal Colour Riche EXtraordinaire

Standard

Allure magazine sent out a survey last month, and after I took it, they sent me a lip gloss to review! Not only do I love lip gloss, but I love telling people about lip gloss!

I love summer colors, and L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Extraordinaire in 202 Coral Encore is perfect for me.

I didn’t realize until I googled it, but it’s actually more of a liquid lipstick rather than a lip gloss. Oh don’t get me wrong, it has the shimmer and shine of a gloss, but it’s not sticky or tacky, and it glides on in a single swipe.

With such a creamy texture, it really has that feel of a lipstick.

One of the things I like best is that it’s long-wearing without being a stain or an outlast (I’m not a huge fan of those). I didn’t feel like I needed a lipliner, which is nice, although it did end up on my coffee cup. BUT, even if it transfers a bit, it still looked good on, which is really what I was going for.

So final verdict is that it’s creamy but not sticky, and has the shine of a gloss, but the smooth feel of a lip stick.
