Lorac Pro+Fiber Mascara Is . . . !

I thought that I would be in love with this mascara, I really did but unfortunately I am not. I purchased this small goodie from Ulta 3 months ago. It was a birthday gift to myself. I bought the sample size, the cheap size although I should have gone into Macy's or Kohl's and simply asked for a sample. FYI if you didn't know these stores have them, they do. Check out my post Sampling Day.

Not Obsessed: Lorac Pro+Fiber Mascara $22

Pretty and so perfect, I thought this sample size portion of mascara would be perfect for on the go and I'd batter my longer lashes but it was all a lie. It's such a shame because the packaging is so freaken perfect. The tube is all black and has rubber-like texture which is good for gripping. The wand is typical and the spoolie meaning the tip goes from wide to narrow which is perfect for creating volume and curl. It is the synthetic material which I normally should stay away from because I do not care for it. I like the silicon tips.

According to the company it is supposed to be a "...buildable, volumizing and lengthening formula... packed with PRO power". It doesn't. Week after week my application method would change to see if I could make them look as full and as volumized as it promises but it never did. I tried shaking the wand from left to right while working from the lash line to the tips. I tried applying it very slowly and turning as I applied. I tried lighting my pressure. I tried the eyelash curler before and after, hence the photo below, and nothing worked.

Does my eyelashes look volumized to you?

I'm so sad. Maybe I will try using this mascara solely on my bottom lashes. Those look descent after using this mascara. I struggle with short and sparse lashes.  

Fraud Alert!
Also what's up with the faux advertising on their website? It shows a before and after picture of some lashes, click here. You can clearly tell that there is an eyelash band on the top and no band on the bottom. Her top lashes have tripled in volume and somehow created the perfect, straight black line in her inner, upper waterline. I cannot stand when companies sell dreams without a disclaimer stating that there were enhancements used. Yes, I do know makeup ladies and gents.

Sorry Lorac, this one was not good. Oh well, you know my model, "Quality over quantity. Fuck it. I will try both."

Obsession: Microdermabrasion Paste $80
Roday + Fields microdermabrasion paste

I am a avid fan of having glowing and almost blemish free skin. Recently I was contacted by an independent consultant for Rodan + Fields, a skincare brand from the developers of Proactiv. Super happy about them reaching out to me, I ecstatic to accept whatever products she was offering although she was reaching out for a job opportunity. Not one to miss out on an opportunity to try before I invest, I asked what products could she send me to sample. 4 weeks later the package has arrived.

Coming in a little of a sample size portion I opened the envelope to find 2 night time creams and one small sample size of a Microdermabrasion Paste that was good for 4 washes.The consistency of the microdermabrasion paste is medium. When rub in between the palms of the 2 hands, you can feel and see the gritty buy going to be awesome effects of the granules exfoliating the skin. When looking directly at the paste, it is a white, pearlescent color and you can see a bit of a glow.
