DupeAlert #2: MAC Faux & Kat Von D Lovecraft

MAC Faux has been my all time favorite MAC lipstick. It is the only lipstick that I have emptied since I discovered my love for makeup. Recently I wanted to try more from Kat Von D's makeup line so I ordered Lovecraft lipstick from Sephora. When i first saw the color in person I immediately knew that it would be my favorite l/s cause it reminded me of Faux. So I did a side by side swatch of the products. I apologize for the picture quality cause I took these with my iphone.

As you can see I transfered my Faux l/s to a container cause I had to scrape the bottom of the lipstick tube so I wouldn't waste the product and I was surprised by how  much product was in there! 

See how the colors are very similar? The finish is the only difference since Lovefract is matte and Faux is more creamy and has a satin finish.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

I was excited when I received an e-mail from Sephora Middle East that they're giving a free sample size of Benefit's new mascara, Roller Lash. 

They claim to lift & curl lashes without the need to use an eyelash curler. I was really curious & was excited to try it cause if you have read my past mascara posts, I have long, limp lashes and regular mascaras don't work for me & they never hold a curl.

They have designed a unique brush wand which catches the lashes & lifts it.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara 

Here's a photo of my bare lashes. They naturally hang down and I always have to use an eyelash curler to give it lift & curl.

Here's one coat of Roller Lash mascara. I say it did lift my lashes for about 1% (lol). As I've said before, regular mascaras don't work for me and using mascara alone without curling my lashes won't give them the oomph and curl that I want.

 Here's my other eye which I curled prior to applying mascara, to see if it will hold a curl.

Here's one coat on my curled lashes, as you can see it did weigh my lashes down and & didn't hold the curl.

Left is just the mascara, right is curled lashes & mascara. I've noticed that the curled one (right) made it look more volumized.

I think the mascara concept is really great & I have seen some blog posts that this product worked for them and gave them amazing results, unfortunately, it didn't work for me. Maybe if I use my HG lash primer (Sisheido Nourishing Mascara Base) I would have better results with this mascara. As for removing the product, I used my Clinique Take The Day Off balm & it's so much easier than Benefit's previous best selling mascara "They're Real".  Would I recommend this product? Sure if you have lashes that are easy to curl with just using mascara, give this product a try!

DupeAlert #1 : MAC Unlimited

I can't have enough pink/brown lipsticks. It's the perfect "my lips but better" color. I wanna share with you cheaper dupes of my fav MAC Unlimited prolongwear lipstick. On the swatch it looks slightly different but on the lips they look exactly the same! I just love finding dupes of the more expensive brands cause you can have the same color for a cheaper price! 

What do you guys think of these dupes? Tell me in the comments. :)
