Review : L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara

I have been using this L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara for quite some time. And it's time for a review! When I got my hand on this mascara, I was thinking to myself 4D effect already? Wow, I heard so much about 3D effect but not  4D effect! 

 L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara comes in very beautiful metalic teal colour packaging! It promises to give 4 effects:-

1) Volumise your lashes
2) Extend and Lengthen Lashes
3) Texturise for a thicker effect
4) Curl for a captivating look

Well this is L'oreal Paris newest lash innovation, it claims that its the first mascara with sculpting fibres to wrap each lash giving them a magnetic 4D effect. It has 4mm long fibers which are undeteacable and ultra supple. Besides that I'm quite happy to know this L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara has the waterproof formula too!

 L'oreal Lash Architect 4D mascara wand is long & slim

 The brush is sleek and the angled curve promises to wrap each and every lash with the sculpting fibres for the ultimate lash effect.

 Here we can see the bristles are quite dense & it is quite easy to apply. The mascara is in deep black colour.

Here are L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara Before & After picture to see how it works on me!

First try, 1 coat of L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara

This is after 2-3 coat mascara

Review of L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara: 
At my first try, with one swipe of L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara, I could see my lashes are more define and looks a bit longer. With 2-3 of the mascara, I could see my lashes looked visible and my lashes seems to lengthen quite nicely.It seems to hold my lashes pretty well too without feeling too heavy. 

However it does not give volume that it promises and seems to clump my lashes a little bit during application. And I was not happy to find that this mascara smudge on my at the end of the day. And I would prefer Maybelline New York Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara over this anytime for almost the same price range.
Have you try this L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara before? Does it work on you?

L'oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara is selling at RM54.90 at major pharmacies nationwide such as Watsons, Guardian and Caring.

Review: L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil in Rich Oil formula - Finally get to say Bye Bye to my bad hair days!

How often you wake up and realised that you have a bad hair day ?

I have that almost everyday, all thanks to my constant effort of beautifying my hair by perming, colouring, highlighting and even bleaching! I learnt my lesson hard and now I am more careful and dilligent in taking care of my hair! As much as I like how my hair is permed and coloured I am now more concered about what hair products I used and are suitable for my hair conditions.

Back in February I was given L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil (for all hair types) to try and I was skeptical to use it at first because hair oil like Liese and other few brands never seems to work on me, and it usually gives you this greasy & heavy feeling after you apply it and not really helping the hair that much. But once I tried this Mythic Oil, I was or I am in love with it and there is no turning back because despite it being an oil it felt so light on my hair and it makes my hair feel so smooth and manage to keep my frizzy hair at bay! And now I know why 3 Mythic Oil products sold every minute worldwide!

So I was quite excited to try out another 3 different formulas of Mythic Oil when I was given for review and they are are L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil in Milk, Rich Oil and Colour Glow Oil and each of these targets different hair types and concerns.

My current hair condition : Dry, frizzy, lacks of shine, unruly and tangling hair

And looking at my hair concern I decided to try L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil first which comes in transparent plastic bottle. Anyway I read that L'oreal Professional introduced new Mythic blow-dry services, inspired by ancient beauty traditions, passed through time and filled with Oriental indulgence. If you have used any other hair oil before, you will realised that we can only used it after you have blow dry your hair and not before that! But Mythic Oil can be used before or after we blow dry our hair and it is for different results!

L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil has the richest nourishment formula among all, it has consists of taming and anti-frizz effect.

The two key ingredients that are being used here are:-
Rice Bran Oil : intensely moisturises and replenishes unruly hair for restored sleekness

Argan Oil: Rich in Vitamin E and essetial fatty acids, Argan Oil deeply nourishes rebellious hair.

Looking for the lists of ingredients, they are not only FREE from paraben, silicone and mineral oil ! And it is made in Spain.

Comes in pump dispenser, only one pump is needed!

Texture : Rich & clear colour oil

Scent : Very pleasant scent

Usage Tips to see different results:-

Pre-Blow Hair Dry Constructor : Essential preparation for Mythic Oil Blow-dry and Oriental Odyssey services. Apply one pump after you towel hair dry your hair and before you blow dry your hair.

Finishing Touch & Sparker : Increases shine, suppleness and softness with long-lasting anti-frizz protection. Apply another one pump after your blow dry your hair or style them, apply at the tip of your hairs with your fingers for final touch.

Review of L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil : I only pumped out 1 pump and warmed my hands before using it. I combed through my hair with the oil on my hand and not touching the scalp area. After that I felt that my hair absorb the Mythic Oil -Rich Oil like within a minute. I then continued blow dry my hair and when I am finished I applied another pump of it to my hair tip with my fingers just for final touch. Once again it absorb pretty fast and leaving my hair tips not feeling oily. I combed it through and it is smooth and actually help to detangle my hair. I really like how it fees light and does not weight down my hair while keeping my frizzy hair at bay. I have discovered that I did not have any splits ends at all since I started using them even though I just recently korean permed my hair two months ago. And I think my hair looked more shiny and manageable. And compared with the L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil original formula for all hair types, this Rich Oil formula is thicker and richer and gives better moisture to my hair and more suitable for my current hair condition!

I like it when I applied this the night before after I showered, my next day morning hair was soft and so easy to comb through!

I like how I can comb through my hair with my fingers!

No more bad hair day anymore! YAY!

I am endorsing my approval and really recommending this L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil - Rich Oil to all of you who have damaged & unruly hair. It makes my life hair so much easier, seriously! Trust me when I said good, it's really good!

L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil - Rich Oil is selling at RM75 for 125ml at L'oreal authorised hair salons.

p/s The other 2 formulas such as Milk & Colour Glow Oil review will be posted seperately soon because this Rich Oil formula deserved its own review post!

Review : L'oreal Paris Colour Riche Nutri Shine

According to the description, this lipstick nourishes like a lip balm but shines like a gloss!

Gives 6 hours of hydration, 2 hours of shine and 3 hours of wear without need of touch-ups.

I love the packaging , very transparent red casing with the word L'oreal on the iron plate at the side.

This lipstick works like lip balm because it is made from royal jelly (which has healing function) and shea butter ( rich in Vit A, E , and F - works to repair chapped lips and smooth them.

And it also works as a lip gloss because it has fine polymers in its formula.

I got L'oreal Paris Colour Riche Nutri Shine in Pretty Peach , #RC 402

My review : With 1 swipe on my palm, the lipstick looked very clear, smooth with lots of tiny shimmering powder. The lipstick don't feel sticky/greasy upon application. The color is sheer and need re-apply after drinking/food. And I am happy my lip is quite moist after using the lisptick.

I like the color of the lipstick here, very pretty peach indeed.... suit my lips perfectly.

More important my buddy guy friend who I went movie too said this " Wah Jess today your lips so bling bling, so kissable! "

Hahaha... Yes I do love the shimmering lip gloss effect that the lipstick gives and yet moist like lip balm! And must say now its one of my favorite and I'm keeping in my handbag! And it saves a little space in my handbag as supposed that now I just bring this instead of lipstick and lip gloss.

L'oreal Paris Colour Riche Nutri Shine Lipstick is priced at RM39.90

Available at all L'oreal counters nationwide starting January 2011

Pros : Lipstick is moist, shimmering and smooth.

Cons : Sheer color and need to re-apply after few hours
