L'Oreal False Lash Superstar Mascara//Link
I was drawn to this mascara because it looks so pretty and it had two sides to it. The first side (No.1) is for creating volume in the lashes. This is possible because it has some fibres in it which adhere to the lashes to give it a false lash effect as the name suggests. L'Oreal describe this fibre effect as a spectacular push-up effect. It actually comes off as white fibres and you can visibly see the instant volumising effect on your lashes. I actually like this part of the mascara a lot because it also creates an illusion of length in addition to the volume.
The second part (No. 2) is the lengthening section which brings together the effect of the first wand. I was quite pleased with the way the wand was shaped because I have now developed a love for curved wands. The curved wand is designed too pick up the littlest lashes and give them length. However, I was not overly impressed with its lengthening properties (I told you I was super picky). I am not sure what exactly happened but the effect of the volumising part of the mascara was so good that my expectations were a little too high for the impact of the second wand. I think it's still a great mascara but I find myself reaching for the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara over it. Maybe, it will grow on me because I remember I was not too impressed with the Maybelline version when I first got it. I was a little naughty and used just the volumising wand and lengthened with the Maybelline Mascara and I was very impressed. I will report back on it when I have tested it for a longer time. I have seen some very impressive reviews with before and after pictures so I know it is a good all rounder mascara but I wish the lengthening side of the wand had a little bit more ooomph.
L'Oreal Superstar Super Liner//Link
I feel like I am absolutely cheating on my L'Oreal Perfect Slim Super Liner but I think this is seriously stealing its place. I am going to make a very bold statement and say it is one of the best eyeliners I have ever tried. OMG. At first, I was there thinking "So L'Oreal have repackaged the Perfect Slim Eye Liner again and trying to make us think it's new?". However, I was so wrong because they are very different. The Super Star Eyeliner is slightly chunkier than the Perfect Slim which is known for its really precise lining properties. I also feel the Super Star Eyeliner has more control and is much firmer so it gives a smoother application for beginners.
The packaging is also different as the Super Star Eyeliner has a lid with a click which means the chances of it drying it out is very slim. I am sure you can tell I am slightly obsessed and I feel like I should go out and buy many backups before they ever decide to stop making them. The Perfect Slim Eyeliner will forever have a place in my heart because I used it for years but I am more than happy to try something new. However, I do think the Perfect Slim seems to be more intense (it's very black) than the Super Star but it is very hard to notice unless you are picky like me. I now have a little collection of my favourite L'Oreal Eyeliners and I may do a post if you want to know which to pick.
I am super pleased I picked up the L'Oreal Superstar range and I think it is really lovely and worth the money. Boots and Superdrug forever have offers and I am sure no one ever buys anything full price in these stores. I would recommend both products because I think they are good. However, I was only impressed by the L'Oreal Superstar Eyeliner. I still use the Superstar Mascara from time to time and I like it but it's not my favourite at this time. That's it folks! Have you tried any products from the L'Oreal Superstar range?
