Flawless skin, fuller lashes, blemish free...umm maybe not!

Tuesday, 9 March 2010
How many of us have bought a beauty product based on the packaging? Yes? Of course we all have! Our make up bag is probably packed full with products that promise longer lashes, fuller lips or air brushed looking skin!
Well ladies, these are just marketing slogans, don't be fooled!

The ingredients of course are the most important.
According to Beauty Expert Paula Begoun, a product that's more expensive doesn't necessarily mean it's better. A company that produces a cream that cost £50, actually produces other various products that claim the same thing; but cost way cheaper!

Sure, that is interesting, but what are we left with now? I don't know what ingredients to look for; can't even pronounce most of them for a start!
The slogans and packaging is all that I can rely on! I'm sure I'll still get attracted to the words "10 times more volume lashes" mascara, but it's official; looks really are deceiving after all!

Funny, I just blogged half-seriously to toss all the old mascaras we all accumulate. Get a prescription for Latisse and check for the lowest price, then use a soft Maybelline Mascara. Well, if you have brown eyes. There's a chance that Latisse can darken blue eyes. It's am amazing solution.
