CATRICE HD Liquid Coverage Precision Concealer in 010 Light Beige

The Liquid Camouflage Concealer by Catrice is a long favourite of mine and the post where I compare the three shades that were available at first is still one of the most read posts on this blog. Catrice tends to create really nice base liquid products so I was excited to try out their new HD Liquid Coverage Precision Concealer.

Essence Volume Stylist Curl & Hold Mascara

Mascara is one of my favourite items to try out because it has the ability to really transform the lashes - in a good or a bad way.
The Essence Volume Stylist Curl & Hold Mascara is one of the most affordable ones I've used so far and contains 12 ml. It comes in a metallic pink tube with medium-short natural bristles, which coat the lashes well, and a slightly curled wand.
I've liked it pretty much from the start and it delivers a lot of volume, to the point where lashes can start looking a bit clumpy now that I've had my tube open for a while and if I apply more than two coats. It's nicely black, lasts well on the lashes and removes easily at the end of the day. I don't notice it smudging or flaking and it tends to hold the curl really well. A very pleasant surprise, indeed.
The photos below don't really show it's true potential, but every time I use it I'm amazed at how much volume it adds. I always curl my lashes before I apply it and it holds the curl really well. The first coat of mascara tends to look more 'natural' and lash enhancing, while adding the second one adds more drama and volume. As with every volumizing mascara I try, I also wish this was slightly more defining and lengthening, but since it doesn't promise to be a all-in-one product it doesn't bother me too much.
Applied to the lashes:
If you're looking for an affordable volumizing mascara that will also hold your curl and stay put all day give this one a try.
Available here online and everywhere Essence is sold.

May Favourites

I wanted to mention a couple of my new favourites that I've been using lately. Some of these have made an appearance before but some are very newly loved.
