Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Lengthening Mascara

MASCARAS are like magic wands for the eyes. Run them over the lashes, and your eyes are  pleasantly tranformed for the day. So it's never a bad idea to have too many of it at a time. It's interesting to mix and test different products to maximise lash beauty. When Mich handed me a bunch of the magic wands two weeks ago, I was grinning with glee as I took them :D
I can never have too many of them, and in the following weeks, I found myself getting wasted in them. Having tested a few, Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Lengthening Mascara became an instant favourite.  

The mascara comes in a tube. A soft, metal-like tube, and I find it really interesting. Bobbi Brown Mascara is the first mascara to be packaged in a tube, according to the company. "Bobbi Brown has had success with this mascara because of the formula's characteristics—it functions well in a tube," says Estee Lauder and Beauty Bank package development vice-president Gary Korba. Well then. I guess that must be it.

I love the clay-like creamy texture of the formula. It's not like some runny liquid that takes a few strokes to form a visible impact on the lashes. This formula has more of a clinging power to generously coat, thicken and lengthen at just the first stroke. So you end up with more volume that you bargained for. You can even achieve a dramatic false-eyelash look by applying more coats, especially at the tips. However as you do this, you've got to be a little careful. Don't blink away too much too quickly, as the formula takes a while to dry. Otherwise, you may end up with lash prints on your upper eye lids.

The colour is also intense. Its blackness, fresh like a dark wet stone. It also doesn't appear clumpy or dry, although you may need to use an eye make-up remover to get it off later. For easy removal, I apply the mascara over a basic coat of a separate washable mascara so it washes off without much tug. Another thing about it is its smell (or maybe it's just me). It has a distinct odour that may not exactly be a pleasant scent to those who dislike the intoxicating zing of petrol. I have no issues with it though :) Anyway, the smell is only apparent during application. Minutes later it's gone with the wind.

Well, yes. I'd buy this product. It's lovely and does what it says. If it's not for what it claims, try it for the tube packaging. Then you might find the formula really enhancing !

  6. It's not that I'm interested in mascara, but I noticed you're from Kuala Lumpur. I live in Kuantan, where I've taught English for almost five years.

Healing With Essential Oils

OILS and I go a long way. My mom used a lot of oil on me, growing up. As a teenager, baby oil was my go-to daily face moisturiser. I didn't know then what I know now about synthetic oils but it worked for me. In my early 20s, I fell in love with pure essential oils. I was introduced to the world of Culpeper during work. Then, I was gifted a 50ml bottle of jojoba base oil with two precious bottles of 10ml rose and geranium essentials oils courtesy of Culpeper. I was set for life and I've never looked back ever since. 

Over the years, I have depended on and dwelled solely in beauty oils. Recently, I've started learning about healing through essential oils. It's been a huge eye-opener for me. Essential oils are just not skin deep, they're simply so much more than that. The potent substances extracted through steam distillation from various shrubs, flowers, roots, skin and seeds could have incredible healing powers when used with sensitivity, respect and knowledge. It i…

My Karma Kamet

CONSIDERING my big love for essential oils, I know meeting Karma Kamet (KK) was destiny. My first encounter with this Thai label of aromatherapy product is like a brief introduction to a friend's friend who'd later turn out to be someone you wake up next to quite regularly. I walked into a KK kiosk at a mall in Petaling Jaya about two years ago. Well, the products then were impressive - high grade essential oils, but the collection seemed pretty scarce with stupid price tags on them. So I didn't bother following up until a few days ago when I bumped into KK at its homeland, in its full range and glory! 
The KK oils are super awesome with a capital W. Like Wow. So spending time at the KK store in the Central World mall in Bangkok was a bliss. Not only are the products much cheaper there, the place is a total retreat too. On one side is the store where there are all kinds of products ranging from scented candles, perfume oil mist, pure essential oils, soaps, oil sprays, herba…

A Painful Lesson

BEING back in the pool has been great ! Found my rhythm again and I'm swimming like a dolphin although my friend Aida says I swim like a shark. I told her I won't bite as long as she doesn't throw herself like a whale onto my swimming lane. You know how annoying it is when inconsiderate, non-swimming creatures suddenly decide to 'float' in your swimming way knowing that you've been doing laps for the last 30 minutes ? If they are not blind, then they have to be socially spastic. Socially spastic like the man who doesn't swim at the Kelana Jaya pool. This man, with belly like a pot, wonders in the middle section of the 50m pool, and does nothing but floats or water-threads just when a swimmer is reaching that section of the pool. Two weeks ago, I was a victim of this water-buffalo. When I was just a meter away from him, he appeared on my lane, looking at me with that too-bad-its-my-pool-too look that I had to stop and swim around him. No apologies at all. Ho…
