Radford (really does) love skin! My Custom Facial with Wand treatment

*I paid for this treatment myself*

I knew I was overdue for my facial when I could actually feel the texture on my face changing.  I knew I needed to get my face in better shape so short of going to home depot, I turned to one of the best skincare gurus in the business, Vee Mistry. I had the pleasure of seeing her (on my own dime) at Victoria Radford, on Avenue Road.  Spoiler alert:  and one thing’s for sure…..ever since I arrived back at home, I have been contemplating changing my skin care routine, and I’m putting their number into my contacts.

The Mascara Project week 3 results L’Oreal Waterproof mascara.WHOAH-I never posted second week results!

I purchased this mascara with my own funds and am not compensated to like or hate it!

Wow. Can’t believe I didn’t post about the 2nd week results.  I thought that was kind of weird when I saw a lot of photos in my camera.  Usually I snap a pic, import and delete!

Yikes!  So a mark against me then.  I will have to go back and do a post about week 2….which was the carbon black voluminous.  geeeeez.

In the meantime, here is week 3 results.  I actually threw away the package for this mascara and have no idea what this mascara is called.  Either way, I was NOT impressed. L’Oreal, I expected more…..

This is my first waterproof mascara from L’Oreal.  My favorite waterproof at the moment is Essence 24h stays no matter what but I won’t get too much into that as I have gone on and on about it already several times.  I just didn’t appreciate this mascara.

The packaging is “Classic L’Oreal” and the brush is a bit of the same.  I did notice upon first opening the product, that it was a bit clumpy on the brush.

I wanted to like this mascara so much! L’Oreal makes great mascaras, but this is a ‘miss’ for me.  Why, you ask?

Well…..

1. Putting it on required a ton of effort for less than stellar results

2.  Tons of transfer on my browbone

3. In order to get my lashes the deepest darkest black , I would most likely have to apply the entire tube.

It just wouldn’t apply properly for me-look at that application!

SAD FACE.

Suffice it to say that I do not recommend this mascara, whatever it’s called…..

Next up?  Voluminous False Fiber mascara-and I’m not a fan of fiber mascaras either so I’m not expecting this to bode well.

 

Smoothing it out with L’Oréal Magic Souffle Blush

I think I am the last person on this Earth to try out mousse type products.  It’s probably because I can’t get past the texture.

While I was in the local Rexall, I decided to take advantage of a BOGO promotion going on. One of the products I picked up was L’Oréal Magic Souffle Blush in 802 Cherubic.
