L'Oreal Collagen Micro-Pulse review

Before L'Oreal Collagen Micro-Pulse treatment.

I received a free sample of L'Oreal Collagen Micro-Pulse total eye correcting system from I have suffered with dark circles under my eyes for many years and I've tried multiple products and home remedies without a lot of results. I've been using the L'Oreal collagen Micro-Pulse total correcting system for two weeks. This product claims to immediately see improvements in the smoothing of crow’s feet and the reduction of bags under the eyes.

The way this product is supposed to work is to apply a small amount of the cream twice a day under the eye. Then you proceed by massaging the under eye with the micro-pulsed massaging tool that is attached to the cream container top. You are to perform this routine twice a day, morning and night for 10 seconds per eye. The eye cream is a moisturizing cream that claims diminish the dark circle appearance. It contains a collagen to help smooth away wrinkles and crow's feet. The micro-pulsed massaging works by circulating and stimulating the tissue to reduce the puffiness under your eye.

Favorable views:

So I found this product acceptable and effective in moisturizing my under eye area. A lot of times what promotes dark circles under the eye is dryness. Dryness also encourages more wrinkles therefore, this product works in a way to reduce the dryness thereby adding moisture to diminish these unwanted conditions. And I especially love the micro-pulse feature of this product because it is very relaxing and it is therapeutic to relax your muscle in your face. I have seen some results with this product and I've only been using it for two weeks. It has reduced the puffiness under my eye and my under eye skin is much more moisturized.

Not so favorable views:

Not sure of how long the battery will last.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto review

I rate this mascara a 4.8/5 for the length, volume and curl it gives lashes.

Favorable views:

The first time I tried this mascara I was pleasantly surprised at how well it curled my lashes without using an eyelash curler. The curved brush and the formula help to encourage lashes to curl, thicken and lengthen. This mascara thickens the lashes to give you the appearance of fake lashes. You can apply more than 3 coats without having to worry about it clumping or flaking together. It doesn't make your eyelashes to feel stiff, with Lash Stiletto your lashes are still flexible and clean looking. I did not notice any smudging around the eye and I didn't even purchase the waterproof version. This mascara does work to give you longer, thicker and curlier lashes.

Not so favorable views:

It is a little difficult to reach the tiny lashes on the inside corner of the eye because of the extra mascara that collects on the tip of the brush.

L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara review

I rate this mascara a 4.8/5 for its lengthening.

Favorable views:

This mascara is great for separating and lengthening your lashes. A lot of people who have used this mascara complain about the mascara clumping too much. I believe that this all comes with the technique you use to apply it. Even though there is a stopper on the tube you are still left with a thick coating of mascara on the neck of the brush. This becomes a slight issue for when you apply the mascara the thick coating of mascara gets on some of your lashes. My solution to this is to move the brush horizontally across your lashes to try to distribute the mascara. When each coat dries remember to start applying the mascara to the root of your lashes and hold it for a couple of seconds when you get to the tip of your lashes. The brush is unique in the fact that the brush is a small, spherical spike. The spike allows you to get to the small lashes in the inside corner of your eye. This mascara also lengthens each lash dramatically without clumping, when you get used to applying it. Whenever I wear this mascara people comment on how long my lashes are and if they are false. I gladly tell them that my eyelashes are real and that I used L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion mascara. The spike allows you to really lift your eyelashes and separate them to make them look feather-like and amazing. This mascara is more of a lengthening rather than thickening mascara, but nonetheless this mascara is definitely worth it if you strive for super long lashes. Don't get discouraged if this mascara doesn't work for you, there are other mascaras out there.

If you love this mascara comment me and tell me about your experience, and if you don't like this mascara comment me and I'll try to see if I can give you some advice!

Not so favorable views:

L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion mascara takes longer to apply than other mascaras. It takes some maneuvering to achieve your desired look.

Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion review

This mascara is great for length, therefore I rate this mascara a 4.1/5.

Favorable view:

I received this product free from I usually don't purchase Covergirl mascara because I am more of a Maybelline girl, but because I received this as a free sample I decided to try it. The tube is bigger than most mascara tubes, it stands out from the rest of my mascaras. The brush is an average size for a brush, but the bristles on this one are shorter than what I have seen in the past. I find that this mascara does a great job of giving you long lashes without clumping them. This mascara is more of lengthening mascara as opposed to volumizing. It works great on short lashes to lengthen, and it gives you a nice clean look. No clumping, flaking and no smudging even with the non-waterproof!

Not so favorable:

The only con I have for this mascara is that it doesn't provide the volume that some people strive for. So if you are looking for length this is the mascara for you, and it is priced at about $9.99 I think it was well worth it. Write me a comment on how you felt about this mascara!

Colossal Lash Mascara by Maybelline review

This mascara is a must have to achieve long eloquent eyelashes. The mascara pros outweigh the cons so therefore I am rating Colossal a 4.8/5.

My favorable view:

I was pleasantly surprised by this mascara. Let me first start off with the Pros of this mascara. The first application of mascara that you apply on bare lashes greatly lengthens and coats your lashes. You will see a definite dramatic effect on your lashes due to the brush type and the formula. The large brush fans your lashes out to prevent clumping. Therefore it separates the lashes giving them a feather like desirable appearance. Colossal Lash Mascara not only lengthens lashes greatly, but it also gives your lashes volume. In addition, I did not notice any smudging and it washes off with ease. I would say that Colossal is more of a dramatic night time mascara, but you can definitely wear this in daytime if you like intense eyelashes. This mascara is a win-win, and for only about $7.50 you have nothing to lose! So if you want a dramatic lash lengthening and volumizing effect on your lashes try Colossal Lash out and write me a comment on how you felt about the mascara.

Not so favorable:

The brush on this mascara is larger than some of the other popular mascaras so getting to those short eyelashes in the inside corner of your eye might be a little tough. The other con is that after excessive applications of this mascara you lashes start to clump together. Another con is that it flakes after a couple of days of use.

Maybelline Define a Lash Mascara review

This mascara is great for a natural elongated mascara look, therefore I rate this mascara a 4.4/5.

Favorable view:

This mascara gives a natural mascara look, nothing too dramatic. It does lengthen the lashes without flaking or clumping. You can apply over 3 coats while still having that “defined” and clean look. The name of this mascara lives up to its expectations because the short bristles on the brush do define, lengthen and separate each lash. The brush neck is flexible so it glides on the lashes for beautiful, long lashes. I bought the waterproof formula and did not notice any smudging.

Not so favorable view:

This mascara is more in the daytime mascara. Therefore if you looking for that evening dramatic full look this mascara doesn't give you the volume dramatic after five look.
