Review: Maybelline Volum' Express The Mega Plush

Maybelline Volum' Express The Mega Plush

(photo print screened from Maybelline's website)

so as we all know this is a new mascara from Maybelline
My thoughtful friend Brant got me this while he was in states, at first I was happy I got a mascara from maybelline but I was thinking "Is there a Mega Plush from the line?". Until I checked maybelline's website then I knew that it was new that's why I didn't know about it.

enough talking and onto the review! :D

Maybelline Volum' Express The Mega Plush product details:
-Mega volume
-Their first gel-mousse mascara with 40% less hard waxes for massive volume with a supple touch
-Extra soft patented Flexor Brush caresses lashes
-Lashes never brittle or flaky
-Available in washable and waterproof formulas

I got mine in Blackest Black and in Washable formula

The Flexor brush

my bare lashes (and eyes (: )

with Mega Plush mascara

with mascara in daylight:

I'd say that this product is ok. I dont love it I dont hate it.
I wear this mascara everyday because it defines my lashes and gives them a lil bit of length but absolutely not volume. 
I like the thing that its washable and I wouldn't have hard time removing it unlike Majolica Majorca's Lash Expander Frame Plus that I still need to pull my lashes and because of that pulling, my some of my lashes get plucked out unintentionally making my lashes more sparse. 
The Formula has tiny fibers that will elongate your lashes
It last all day but I can see a little smudging on my lower lash line. 
Not smudge proof
Dries matte black
My lashes are not that hard while wearing this.
I dont really see the difference with a flexor blush(the bend thingy on the neck) and a normal brush :)

OVERALL: 3.5/5
if your looking for an everyday mascara this one is for you but if your looking for volume & leeeength you might want to browse for other stuff. :)

so that's it for my review, Thank you for reading and see you on my next blog post! :)

Review: IN2IT Gel Blush

Review: IN2IT Gel Blush

Hey guys, it's been AWHILE since my last post (other than those giveaways contests stuff =) )
so anyway, im back with another review for IN2IT Gel Blush

I got it today at SM Sta.Rosa Department Store Watsons for P259.75 in Strawberry

it comes in three colors: Orange, Red & Strawberry
the orange didn't show up on my skin tone
the red looks like bloody red and i don't really like it
strawberry is a pinkish kind of red that would suit fair & morena skin tones, this is the one that showed up on my skin really good so I choose this one and I think this is the most opaque in all of the three

actually, this is my 3rd time buying this gel blush because the last 2 went missing and I have no idea where they went LOL

without the cap:

hand swatch: 
(my cam doesn't really pick up the color on the back of my hand)

-Long Wearing: it does live up to its claims that it is 8-hour wear and even exceeds that :)
-natural flush on the cheeks
-no need to retouch the whole day, YEAH that's right, you read it right! :D

-tends to have streaks
-hard to redo(ulitin) if you make error/s like over applying
-gives your fingers colors (eg. paghumawak ka ng itlog na maalat HAHAHAHAHA)
see? :)

Things to remember:
-should be blended upon contact with skin or it'll have streaks
-blend blend blend
-work on little by little until you reach your desired color cause it's really hard to redo it
-this gives you natural flush like when you see your crush (LOL) you know what I mean
-be careful when applying this OBVIOUSLY

*i'll update this post when I get to picture myself wearing this, hopefully :)

thanks for reading!! :)
