MAYBELLINE OR COVER GIRL ?

I don't really wear much make-up but I would NEVER leave home without my two-way cake and mascara.

Why two-way cake? Well, for obvious reason that it helps to even out the skin tone and minimise any traces of blemishes there may be on the face (oh yeah... when it is THAT time of the month, I wish I can just mask my face!).

The mascara is like an absolute must. My eyelashes are quite alright in terms of the length but they are definitely not curled up enough! Besides, I swear that putting mascara on the lashes just help to make one look more awake and energized.

Since I use mascara everyday , I do not want to spend so much money on a tube.... I mean , seriously, there are mascaras in the market selling at $50 , $60 per tube. I use an average of a tube per 1 and 1/2 month or two months if I wear it sparingly...) so to spend that much on a tube is kinda above my budget :P

I am not shy to admit that practically all the mascaras I have tried are from the normal drugstores. In fact , I have only tried expensive mascara ONCE - that was from Lancome. Yet , that still did not satisfy me.

Others may not agree but I would say Maybelline has the best mascaras. My favourite is definitely the
MAYBELLINE VOLUME EXPRESS TURBO BOOST WATERPROOF MASCARA ( I know, such a long name...)



 The way the brushes pick up on every bit of the mascara and coat the lashes is really quite extraordinary! I would say if you want a doll-like effect , go for it! I have been using this for years and it is definitely among the top of my beauty-must-have list!

However, I was very intrigued by Cover Girl's Lash Blast Mascara after watching many seasons of America's Next Top Model. Thus, last June when I went to Sydney , I bought 2 tubes to just check them out .



I fell in love one more time!

LashBlast's patented volume-boosting formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max-out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big lash look. This is definitely not a lie. I have been using it ever since. I was really lucky that my cousin went to Australia in December .... I made her get me another 3 tubes!

I have another 2 tubes to go before I have to look for another person who's going to Down Under, to do me the favour . Or I could buy online (yes, unfortunately , Cover Girl is no longer distributed in Singapore) ....

I may also decide to try out the Colossal Volume Express from Maybelline. I have heard numerous great reviews about it ...perhaps, it is time for some self test! :)


Next product test!

I have also discovered the best eye make-up remover. But that will go in another post.

Enjoy your weekend, people!
