I was recently invited to join BzzAgent's latest campaign for COVERGIRL.  I received THE SUPER SIZER mascara in Very Black.  After using it for about two weeks now I'd love to share my thoughts!

First off let me fill you in on its claims found on COVERGIRL's website (link to site follows the text)


The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes — just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contact lenses.

So now the million dollar question,  does it live up to its claims?!  Short answer, yes it does!  You definitely get lots of volume and length, similar to that of falsies.  Having said that, it does take some practice to perfect the technique.  You need to twirl the wand as you go, starting from the lash line moving up. Here's a link to show you how its done

It took me a few days to get the hang of it but once I did I was happy with my new lash look. However,  I was not impressed with the longevity of this mascara.

By midday I noticed it started to flake off,  yuck.  This is not something I particularly like, naturally. It also clumps up if you're not careful and I can see this becoming a bigger issue as the mascara ages a bit.

The mascara does remove easily with eye makeup remover at the end of the day which is nice.  No need to scrub or soak to remove it.

Verdict?  As much as I like the look of this mascara once it's applied I can't get over the flaking. Therefore I don't see myself purchasing it in the future.

My very first #VoxBox from Inluenster!

I'm excited to announce that I have just received my very first VoxBox from Influenster Canada!  After joining in April and having no luck in VoxBox campaigns I have finally been selected!  I will be testing LaNEIGE'S Brightening Sparkling Water Foam Cleanser.  This product claims to brighten, detoxify and exfoliate skin for clearer, smoother skin.  This cleanser is part of their Ultimate 24-Hour Hydration system which uses advanced water science to help achieve younger,  more radiant looking skin.  I'm hoping to see some great results as this product line has gotten rave reviews.  I will post my review once I have used the product long enough to sufficiently form an opinion so stay tuned!

#ElevateLoungeTO | Review

  This past Sunday I was fortunate enough to attend my very first ChickAdvisor Event!  Elevate Lounge Toronto was hosted by ChickAdvisor, Harbinger as well as some really great sponsors. The event took place at the Harbinger Offices at 200 Wellington Street West on both Saturday and Sunday with hour long appointments from 11AM to 5PM.  During my hour long appointment I received the star treatment!

  When I walked into the building I was greeted by two lovely ladies who scanned my ticket and escorted me to the elevator.  I got off on the 6th floor where I was welcomed by another women who brought me to the reception area where I was offered my choice of Radler's (beer) or a bottle of VOSS (water).  I decided to go with the bottle of VOSS because one can never have too much water plus VOSS was a sponsor and I've never tried their brand.  First impression of VOSS,  wow.  The bottle was sleek,  sexy and made of glass!  It's not very often that you find unflavoured water in glass bottles and I was quite happy to see that!  I was then paired with two other ladies who shared the same timeslot as me and we were whisked off to the first of four iconic suites,  Nexxus!

  In the Nexxus suite we were to have our hair red-carpet styled and I must admit I was nervous.  I have very thin, fine hair that is cut into a short bob.  Not much to work with.  Once I was seated I was introduced to Lyn who was to style my hair.  The theme was curls and waves and she assured me that even short hair like mine can be styled into sexy,  unkempt curls.  She got to work with the curling iron and took strands of hair curling them midway.  There was no real order,  some were curled forward,  some backwards.  She then finished off by lightly spraying my hair with Nexxus' Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist which held my new style in place.  Since my hair is so short I was done before the other ladies in my group so I had to wait for them to be finished.  I took the time to snap a few photos and log into my social media accounts.

  The next stop was the treat sampling area which did not disappoint! This is where our food sponsors were set up with all their delectable treats.  My first stop was over to Lipton to get a tea.  I chose a lemon-ginger tea and it was so so good.  Next stop was Gay Lea's Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese station.  I am a fan of cottage cheese and so I was really looking forward to trying this new, smooth line.  I chose the Vanilla Bean flavour and all I have to say is OMG!  It was absolutely delicious! It was thick,  creamy and rich like a Greek yogurt and had a very sweet, subtle vanilla flavour.  From there I filled up a bag of candy before grabbing a Double Caramel Magnum bar. Before I got a chance to open it we were ushered into the next suite,  Dr. Scholls!

  I was really looking forward to this suite.  We were to get an indulgent foot massage and to my surprise,  a mini pedi too!  My masseuse got to work filing down my callouses and then proceded to massage both my feet and calves.  The massage was nice although the pressure applied could've been increased.  Did I mention I was eating my Magnum bar while having my feet rubbed?!

  The next and final suite we visited was Simple skin care.  When we arrived the last group was still putting their makeup on which ran into our time slot.  Our skincare expert tried her best to cover all the products and their advantages but was unable to do so as our time ran out.  This was unfortunate because I was quite interested in the products.

  After checking out we were handed our swag bags and let me tell you they were awesome! Lots of great products from the sponsors with an estimated value of $120!  I had such a great time at this event and I look forward to attending more ChickAdvisor events in the future!

Event sponsors included:  Nexxus,  Simple,  Dr. Scholls, Lipton, Gay Lea, Excel, Magnum, M&M's, Dove and VOSS
