2 Things!

I purchased 2 makeup related items today. I hate it when everything runs out at the same time!

I was out of under eye concealer. My all time HG is the BeneFit Boi-ing.I use shade '02'. Read my review HERE.
I also like the creamy concealer Bobbi Brown do and that's about it.

Price: £15.50.

My Chanel Exceptionnel mascara has become crusty and needs to be binned. I wasn't willing to splurge on a high end mascara so I purchased a cult favourite 'L'oreal Voluminous' in carbon black. Sounds good, never tried it before, so this will be interesting.

Price: £7.99


What's your favourite under eye concealer and drugstore mascara?

Can't believe you've never tried Voluminous, hope you like it! It's one of my favorite drugstore mascaras along with Max Factor 2000 Calorie. For me nothing can beat MAC Studio Finish concealer or Select Moisturecover. xx

L'Oreal Voluminous is my HG Mascara! I hope it works as good for you as it does for me

Dermacolor makes the best concealers! Also there's a lot of hype about the Amazing Concealers these days however aint tried those yet!

I like MAC select cover up for my undereyes. The fluid formula is perfect for blending. For mascara, I am in love with Maybelline Define-a-Lash.

Love your blog girl! :)

Muhsine said...

@cheryl yay, hope so!

L'Oreal Extra Collagen would be mine! I love it! For under eye's I am currently loving Lise Watier Colour Wheel. The medium one is the perfect match.

Thank you for posting this! I have been wondering about Bo-ing! Maybe I will go ahead and get it based on your rec. Have you tried the Erase Paste? My fave drugstore mascara is Maybelline Define-A-Lash in the hot pink tube.

Loreal Voluminous is a great drugstore mascara, its a really good buy.I have never tried Benefit Bo-ing but I've heard it's good. I just tried the BB Creamy Concealer kit and I really like that.

voluminous is my fav mascara, even more than lancome mascara which used to be my fav . i remember reading somewhere that voluminous is comparable to one of the ysl mascaras .. i dont remember which one tho . :|

i dont know how carbon black is treating you but i used both the original and carbon black intense before and i liked the original one much much 1000000x better . but im asian and have the typical asian lashes so it might be completely different for you .. let us know how it is !!

I've never tried L'oreal's Voluminous before.. but my favourite mascara now has to be L'oreal Double Extension with Serum Inside - well I use the primer of that, and then follow with Maybelline's Collosal Volume. People think I have falsies when I have that combo on! xx

I dont really use undereye concealor, saying that I might be tempted to try out the boi-ing concealor, other people have raved bout it too! and my fav drustore brand mascara is loreal telescopic! It lengthens and defines my lashes like crazy! x

Sandra: said...

my favourite under-eye concealer is the bobbi brown colour corrector (light peach, for me).

Vi and Ollie said...

As for mascara-drugstore=handsdown, CG lashblast.
Department=Benefit badgal...love it!

Concealer - I'm loving MAC studiofinish concealer (I'm NC 35) and my fave drugstore mascara is L'Oreal Panoramic Curl. It really thicknes and curls. I'm currently using Maybelline full n' soft - because it wipes off easily - so I don't feel guilty about using it frequently.

LilyLipstick said...

I've been wanting to try L'Oreal Voluminous for a while...I love Chanel mascaras too but they're just a bit too expensive :( My favourite bargain mascara is Max Factor Max - love it! For undereyes I love Touche Eclat...have yet to find a budget one that I like as much!

Mascara-wise: Maybelline's Lash Stilhetto

Hi Maintenance said...

I love BB creamy concealer its just so nice and creamy and i love my lashblast CG mascara! x

Melissa said...

Favourite under eye concealer is Bobbi Brown's Corrector (Light Bisque) and then Warm Ivory Creamy Concealer over the top. Both are so smooth and creamy and cover really well, and are not drying at all.

Favourite drugstore mascara is Max factor's False Lash Effect in Black, although I am always looking for something better!
