Clarins Supra-Volume Mascara

As you already know, I’ve got quite a bit going on right now. And I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t add more to my plate. I’m in the process of changing my current WordPress theme. What used to be a few hour process is now taking me weeks. I probably won’t switch it over until November though. I want it to be just right. It’s long overdue! I just wanted to make it known that I’m making some changes around here. Now onto my review!

This mascara claims to be the solution for intense volume and full, beautiful lashes! The more you apply it, the thicker your natural lashes get! Making it makeup and skincare in one!

I’m digging the pretty gold packaging. It has a really nice luxurious feel to it. The applicator wasn’t bulky and was very easy to work with. I didn’t find the formula to be too thin or too thick. It was just right! It applied nicely coating all of my lashes evenly. It did give my lashes some volume, but I was more impressed with how much this mascara lengthened them. Photographing mascara isn’t nearly as easy as it looks, but I did my best. I’m really hoping you can see just how much it lengthened my lashes. I get so many compliments when I wear this mascara! And most of the time I don’t even feel the need to do winged liner because I feel that it takes away from this mascara.

It holds up really well during the heat. I’m still waiting on that sweater weather! I also love how lightweight it feels. Usually I can feel my mascara, but that isn’t the case with this one. It truly looks and feels more natural. This baby is definitely top 5 for me! You can see the Clarins Supra-Volume Mascara in action below!

September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

1. Luxie Beauty LUXIE ROSE GOLD MEDIUM ANGLED SHADING EYE BRUSH 207
2. Nomad Cosmetics Multi-Perfection Illuminating Bronzer Duo in Principessa
3. Feel Renewed Pumpkin Walnut Facial Cleanser
4. Smashbox Cosmetics PHOTO FINISH RADIANCE PRIMER
5. re:p, real elemental practice Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herb

I’m really digging the sleek black bag this month! In fact, I love it so much that I’ve already used it as a prop in a few photos. It’s also a bag that I feel I can actually use while out and about. Now let’s take a look at what’s inside!

The Luxie Beauty LUXIE ROSE GOLD MEDIUM ANGLED SHADING EYE BRUSH 207 is a really cute brush. The bristles are soft, but not too soft. I’m loving the rose gold handle. This brush would have made a beautiful addition to my collection, but I ended up giving it to my sister-in-law. She’s in need of some nice brushes.

The Nomad Cosmetics Multi-Perfection Illuminating Bronzer Duo in Principessa is a nifty little bronzer/highlighter duo. Both shades double as eyeshadow.

If you know me, you know that around this time every year I go a little pumpkin crazy. And it doesn’t just stop at food! So the Feel Renewed Pumpkin Walnut Facial Cleanser was a great addition this month. This exfoliating cleanser also promises to be gentle on super sensitive skin. I’ll be trying this out soon!

The Smashbox Cosmetics PHOTO FINISH RADIANCE PRIMER sounds interesting. It combines primer with a glowy highlighter for insanely radiant skin. These little primer samples last a while too.

I’m also excited to try the re:p, real elemental practice Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herb. This multitasking mask clears away grime, calms stressed out skin, and reduces redness. I do get a lot of redness on my cheeks so I’m curious to see if this mask can help calm that down.

Overall, I’d have to say this month’s bag was a pretty great one. When I first saw it I didn’t think much of it. Then I dug in and my feelings immediately changed. This pretty bag is full of great products!

Swatches

I was hoping for an extra special box this month since September is my birth month. While I wouldn’t exactly call this month’s box extra special, it’s still pretty good.

The only item I didn’t really care for is the Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel. I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten this in a past box and I didn’t like it. It does nothing for my sparse brows. And for some reason I always get a super light shade.

I was very excited to see the Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Happy. It’s a gorgeous warm fuschia shade with a satin finish. The packaging is really nice. I love when sample sizes come in nice packaging.

I totally would have used the stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Black. It’s waterproof and claims to stay put all day and night. It swatched really nice and seemed to be a nice jet black shade. However, my sister-in-law was in need of a liquid liner so I handed it on down to her.

The belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb is a moisturizer that provides skin with intense hydration. I can see this coming in handy during the colder months. *whispers* Winter is coming.

The DevaCurl Melt into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning Mask is a nourishing treatment mask that transforms dehydrated curls with matcha butter for intense moisture, softness, and shine. I can appreciate a great hair mask so I’ll definitely be giving this a try.

The fragrance sample I received this month is Stella McCartney POP. I’m really digging this fragrance. It’s on the bolder side, but it’s fresh and upbeat. Smelling it makes me happy. I might just add this one to my wishlist.
