Weekend FOTD and L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Review

Despite spending most of the weekend hiding under a blanket and sniffling and sneezing my way through three boxes of Kleenex I was determined not to let it show when I headed out into the afternoon sunshine for a Sunday lunch date. 
 Even though I am still somewhat tanned after my holiday, after giving up the fight and surrendering to my cold my skin has been looking very pale and dull. To try and add a little natural looking colour I used MAC's MSF natural as my foundation, YSL Soleil D'Afrique bronzer and MAC's harmony powder as a blush.

On my lips I patted on a red lipstick (L'ancome gift with purchase) as a base topped with Mac's wondershine 3D glass.
On the eyes I used the Bourjois shimmering shine liquid shadow in no.33 beige metallique, L'Oreal carbon gloss liquid liner and L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara. This was the first time I had used this mascara, and I was very pleasantly surprised. Although the brush is very large (which is usually bad news for my shaky hands)it is sturdy and accurate, with the plastic bristles working hard to separate every lash. I wouldn't say that this mascara gives the volume it promises it definitely defines and lengthens my lashes. However, by the evening I did notice it smearing a little on the corner of my eyes (though they are extremely watery at the moment) and on my lower lashline. This mascara was also very easy and quick to remove, which indicates that it is not the most long lasting.
This morning I used a coat of L'ancome's Hypnose followed by the Volume Million Lashes, which gave a really lovely effect with long, thick, separated lashes and absolutely no clumps. I shall be testing out this little combo further in days to come ;).

Have you tried this mascara? Do let me know your thoughts!

I hope you all had a good weekend my lovelies! xxx
