Mascara – L’Oreal – Voluminous in Carbon Black

The claims:
Uniquely formulated to resist clumping, soften lashes, and build lashes to five times their natural thickness. Patented Volume Maximizing Brush™ thickens lashes evenly and smoothly, leaving them soft with virtually no flakes, smudges, or clumps. Exclusive carbon black pigments provide up to 2X the intensity of L’Oréal’s classic black shade.
  • Ophthalmologist-tested and allergy-tested.
  • Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
  • Clump-resistant.
  • Fragrance-free.

The Goods:

  • Amazing Volume
  • Amazing length
  • Easy to apply (for some)
  • Long lasting
  • Separates & Builds Every Lash
  • Looks like you have false eyelashes
The Bad:
  • Difficult removal
  • Long time to dry
  • Difficult to apply for some (If you haven’t applied mascara before you have to be careful about applying this one )
Verdict: I have bought SO many mascara products out there and let me just start by saying nothing compares to this.I hate wearing False Lashes and it get me so upset because I want to have fuller eyelashes that look like false eyelashes and this is just a fantastic mascara. It gives beautiful volume and length with an intense black color I only put on two coats and I’m good for the whole day. It also gives a fuller look to my eyelashes and makes them look so natural. The only issue I have with this mascara though its when I apply more then 2 coats I notice that it clumps my eyelashes and they look weird, but even though I will still use this mascara until I finish it and my hunt for a animal cruelty free mascara starts after its done.


Today I will be talking about my favorite subject and that is LUSH! I will take my time and explain the cleansers today and I will explain the other products I have from lush later in other posts. I’m so Excited to tell everyone about these amazing products. I didn’t take pictures of the Ultrablend because I ran out of it, but I will show you a picture from their website and explain the product to you.
1. Angels on Bare Skin
The Description of this cleanser is
For heavenly soft and perfectly balanced skin, take a bit of Angels on Bare Skin, mix with a little water and massage all over your face and body. The kaolin clay base deep-cleanses while finely ground almonds and lavender flowers gently exfoliate away dry skin. We add lavender oil to soothe and balance, and rose absolute to calm redness. If it’s smooth, radiant skin you’re after, this is the cleanser for you!
How To Use:

Dampen your skin with warm water. Break off a piece of your cleanser, and mix with a little warm water to create a paste. Massage onto your face and body, rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Follow up with your favorite LUSH moisturizer, and enjoy your soft, smooth skin!

The Good:
  • Gentle
  • Small amount goes a long way
  • Leaves clean feel
  • Balances skin
  • Improves skin texture
  • Moisturizing
  • Combination skin
  • All skin types
  • Smells good

The Bad:

    • Messy
    • Doesn’t remove makeup
    • Leaves the sink dirty (must clean after)
  • Its good for 3 months

Verdict: I LOVE THIS CLEANSER! because of this product I sometimes go to work with no makeup on that’s how clear and nice my skin feels. It just balances all of my oils, dry areas, and uneven tones. I tried the sample of it and fell in LOVE, and then I bought the 100g just to see how it works and it finished in a month because I used it ever day day and night. Then went back and got the one that will be good for at least 3 months so I don’t have to go all the time to buy it. If you really have a bad skin and want to fix it, this product will not fail you. Its so gentle that you can use it in the morning and at night.

 2. Ultrabland

Non-irritating beeswax cleanser – Description

A hugely popular cult product, Ultrabland is a thick, rich emulsion of essential oils, honey and beeswax to take off any make up or residue that has built up on your face throughout the day. Unlike most make up removers, Ultrabland leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished, thanks to soothing rosewater and iris flower extract. Suitable for all skin types, Ultrabland is a classic LUSH cleanser coveted by staff and customers alike for it’s effectiveness. Not so bland after all, is it?
How to Use:

Take a quarter-sized amount and apply to the entire face, including the eye area, with gentle, upward, circular motions. Remove with a warm, damp face cloth or cotton pad. Follow with a balancing facial toner such as Eau Roma Water.

The Good:
    • Balances Skin
    • Gentle
  • Doesn’t Dry Out Skin
    • Improves Skin Texture
    • Leaves Clean Feel
    • Moisturizing
    • Smells Great
  • Evens Skin Tone
  • All Skin Types
The Bad:
  • Doesn’t Remove Heavy Makeup

Verdict: I love this Product, at first I bought this to remove my makeup, and it worked well, It took me a while to get used to it. Its sticky, and you cant wash your face with it on. This is what I did and it worked great I tried removing ultrabland with a VERY hot cloth! It worked wonders trust me. I love the way I feel when I wash my face with this it just feels soft and smooth and clean and I can go on about how amazing this thing does. Also you need a very tiny amount and you will be fine.
