L'Oreal Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll Mascara review

Hello everyone,

I hope all is well in your world today. 

Another review for you all.  Again not sponsored.  I purchase all products myself.  My philosophy is a review which is unbiased, no nonsense and real.  It's an opinion of course.  It would be impossible to be suitable to every single product available.  But I do my best to explain why I have chosen one way or the other in relation to the product claims.

So, here we go!

I hadn't used a L'Oreal mascara in a while and admittedly had bought this when it first became available.

L'Oreal says: "the first curled volume effect mascara from L’OrĂ©al Paris. The volumising mega curl roller brush curls and thickens each lash from the root. The quick Mega Volume formula holds up the curl for an all day lasting effect!"

As per my usual routine I used it, wasn't super impressed (as is always the case for me with a new mascara).  I think I expect some kind of miracle immediately where I apply the mascara and automatically transform into a super model!

However, I revisited this again I am absolutely amazed at the volume this mascara provides!  It lifts your lashes right from the base.  Opens up the eye and makes the most of the length you have!

Now I have before and afters to show you but be gentle.  I'm not a super model first thing in the morning (or ever!).  My photos are not 'touched up' or filtered in any way.  I want you to see exactly how the mascara looks on a real person.  Not a pretend person.



Forgive the bags and the bad hair.  But being a 'normal' person who has to go to work every day, I think it's important to show how amazing this stuff really is!

RRP around $21.95 AUD.  But of course L'Oreal very kindly has sales constantly so keep an eye on L'Oreal retailers for a bargain!

Thanx for reading.  Would love your feedback.

Until next time.

Kind Regards,

The Quick Flick - Review

Hello everyone,

Another review.  This time on the eyeliner stamp product The Quick Flick.

This is an eyeliner pen on one side and the "flick' stamp on the other.  Three different sizes, Petite for a small flick (8mm), Modest for a medium flick (10mm) and Grand for a large flick (12mm).

You receive x2 pens in the modest which is fantastic value!

Intense Black PETITE 8MM    Intense Black MODEST 10mm   Intense Black GRAND 12mm

Colours come in Intense Black and Hot Fudge which is a rich Chocolate colour.

It's easy to use although you have to get used to doing eyeliner in a new way.  Sometimes it takes a couple of go's to get used to a new pen.

I purchased the Intense Black in modest.  Firstly you create your flick with the "stamp" and then use the pen and create the full line along your lashline.

Unfortunately for me, the product transferred like nobody's business after about an hour.  Even with an eye primer (Urban Decay's eyeshadow primer, or which I swear by).

Here are the results.  Forgive my not very well lit photos.

I wasn't very happy so tried again another day with the same results


So yes am disappointed that it didn't work so well for me.  But I also bought some for a friend and she she swears by it!

I think I will give it another go.  As they say third time's a charm!

The great thing is it's convenient and not too expensive.  Retails for around $35 AUD but you get x2 pens.  Can be purchased online at

I'd love to know what you all think if you have tried it!

So it goes.

Until next time
