Back atchu with another mascara.

I am so ashamed to tell you I have that very same tube (in the middle) right here in my hands now. *pause for your collective gasps*
In my defence, I haven't been using it for a while. I guess I've just been hanging on to it for this post. #beautybloggerlife

"MASCARA REVIEW: Next in the series is L'oreal's Voluminous. A wet formula with a standard spiral brush. I have no complaints (so much so that I got 2 other types to try). Persons with short bottom lashes may want to use another mascara (with a smaller brush) for that purpose. - Product can be purchased in Cave Shepherd and iMart stores islandwide.


Bonus tip: with wet formula mascaras do your bottom lashes first to prevent transfer unto the eyelid
"

The wet composition of this formula adds longevity to the product but could be a problem for those with transfer issues. The mascara gives the look I like with about two coats but more than that will result in clumping. I believe I purchased the waterproof version by mistake. While Barbados can be humid at times, I rarely have occurrences of my mascara smearing or transferring but if I did this is the mascara I would choose. It offers pigment, volume and that drama I like plus it stays on. Like, you need a good eye make-up remover stays on. At the time I purchased this, I never used a separate eye make-up remover. I would always go over my eyes with a make-up remover wipe and then have at it with my regular facial cleanser in the shower. Afterwards, I tone with witch hazel and at that point I would still see mascara residue on the cotton pad.

So, would I repurchase? No. It's a great mascara; one of the better priced (approx. $21) L'Oreal ones but I will not be purchasing another waterproof mascara if I could help it. I too lazy fuh dat removal process.

p.s. An easy way to remove waterproof mascara is to soak a cotton pad in coconut, jojoba (closest oil to the face's natural sebum) or olive oil and place over your eye for like a minute. Then gently massage the lash area.

Dear Shane Dawson, SYM!

...wid a straw.
Imagine: pretending to care about a community, claiming to share similar interest, designing a cash grab to fleece said community, make millions off products and merchandise (did I mention that this charlatan never even posted one single video using his palette?)...then turning around and blasting the same community for loving negativity and drama. After using drama to create hype for his mediocre "docu-series" and gaudy products. Boy go and drink bleach yuh *redacted* parasite. The same energy you have for lambasting an entire sub-set of YouTube - that made you richer - keep fuh nasty minded, gutter snipe friends. I hope you truly are "done with the drama and tea". You should be done with YouTube period! Yuh *redacted* fraud! I particularly hope that everyone can now see through your "I'm so sensitive" charade and never put another cent of their hard earned money in your condescending, manipulative pockets. You are a disgrace.
