Today I am doing 2 quick reviews and swatches of two products and a look using them
  • Catrice Smokey eyes set
  • L’oreal million lashes mascara in black
Let’s first look at L’oreals million lashes mascara (in black). ¬†In general, I am very satisfied with L’oreal products.

The packing is standard, while the brush (picture above) is one of the worst things I have ever experienced. why?
Since I have short but thick lashes brushes will usually come in contact with my upper lash water line, I am not sure if this is the case with other types of lashes, when I use the brush, since it’s plastic or some similar material, it scratches my lids and it’s quit painful. ūüôĀ Even though the mascara liquid is amazing and the brush does an amazing job with combing the lashes and applying the products. I hate that it¬†scratches¬†my upper lids. This is the only downfall of the mascara.
CONCLUSION 
Will I buy it again? sadly no, even thought it is a good mascara the brush hurts  my upper lids : (

REVIEW & SWATCHES CATRICE SMOKEY EYEs SET
Except their nail polishes & some lipsticks, Catrice is a VERY HIT OR MISS line. I¬†desperately¬†wanted this smokey eyes set to¬†surprise¬†me but again it was a disappointment. I would say stay away from this set it’s so poorly pigmented that it’s a joke. Even though the swatches seem good when I apply it on the eyes I have to put layer over layer over layer over layer over layer…
you will see below with my smokey eye look (the darker one) that it’s a very light smokey eye. I used everything that the smokey eyes set came with.
The smokey eyes set comes with: 
an applicator
a black cream liner that can also be used as a black base (it will crease after some time)
and three colors
I really tried but I was totally not happy with the pigmentation of the eyeshadow and I think I will toss this in the bin.
CONCLUSION 
poorly pigmented, cheap price, creases, chalky
