As I was saying, L'Oreal kindly sent me this new product - debuting on the Canadian market about now - with the hopes that I would try it and love it. I received the European version, the CDN being as-yet unavailable, along with:
- 1 x L’Oréal Paris Cosmetic Bag
- 1 x L’Oréal Paris Cosmetic Brush
- 1 x L’Oréal Paris Eye Shadow Quad in Grey
- 1 x Carbon Black Liquid Liner
- 1 x Guide to Smokey Eyes
Here are my thoughts: It's not a bad product and it will retail for a very reasonable $14.99. It's got two steps, like other mascaras I've tried, a white base coat and a black top coat. I like the system and the product is easy to use. But with mascara, the wand is everything. And these wands didn't do it for me. The mascara created a long lash, not a thick one. I have long lashes already. I'm interested in width. So I don't know if I'd buy it.
It shouldn't stop you though. If you're into it. A propos of this, in a few short weeks, I will receive an HTML email and unique web-code to pass onto friends, so they can sign up to receive an exclusive discount coupon for their own Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara.
See how influential I really am? I'll be passing this along to y'all, natch.
Now just cuz the mascara wasn't so my thing, I have to say I was very impressed indeed with the L'Oreal Carbon Black Liquid Liner. And I quite enjoyed the L’Oréal Paris Eye Shadow Quad in Grey. I would totally buy either of these, my novice status notwithstanding. So you may also want to give them a go.
Now if only they would send me some lipstick!
