Miss Manga by Voluminous (L’Oreal Paris)

*I received these products for review.*

I could barely contain my excitement when I saw this mascara in my mailbox.  I’m a huge fan of manga-even the kind that no one really reads anymore (I bet you’ve never hear of Strawberry marshmallow, have you?).  So of course, I want MANGA-SIZED lashes!

From L’Oreal Paris:

Inspired by the funky culture of Japan and fun loving Kawaii attitude, Miss Manga mascara envelopes lashes with mega volume for an innocently flirty, wide-eyed look.  The mega impact formula with collagen spheres and triology of polymers adheres to lashes and enlarges them for sensational volume.  Fiercely painting every single lash top to bottom-this new mascara creates a wide open and full look just like a Kawaii doll.

I love this mascara!  It has a 360 degree flexor wand that DOES amplify upper lashes. It also has a cone tip that is good for the inner corners of the eyes and lower lashes.  It’s not a dry formula but it’s not necessarily wet etiher.  It comes in 4  colors: black (actually black, blackest black, brown black), purple, turquoise, electric blue.  I’ve been wearing the purple often and loving it.  It’s a fun break from ‘typical’ colors. Be warned though-multiple coats of this product will produce ‘thick’ lashes-it’s almost like it’s clumping.  I use 1-2 light coats.

This is a fantastic product and it’s worth a look. It’s available at mass market retailers and drugstores across Canada with a suggested retail of $10.99 CAD.

Now, I’m off to twist my hair into those cute little Princess Lea buns in the photo!

Schwarzkopf-ED at the ASK academy

I’ve long been a fan of Schwarzkopf Blond Me….there’s just something about it that is so ‘next level.’ It’s like no other blonde I have ever seen and I love their color.   I recently had the opportunity to be a hair model for Schwarzkopf and I jumped at the chance!
