[K-beauty] Club Clio Salon de Cara Mascara

Right before leaving Korea at the end of April, I had just finished off my regular mascara.

I had this sample of Clio Salon de Cara  mascara that came free with purchase of my go-to eyeliner, the Clio Kill Black (see my review here: K-beauty: Clio Kill Black).

I'll start off by saying this is the perfect size for traveling or for just keeping in your purse in case of a mascara emergency.

It is a sample and I do like that I was able to try it out before investing in a full-size tube.

It's not my favorite mascara, I still prefer my usual Innisfree Skinny Microcara Mascara.

I assume I'd like it a lot more if I really needed the volumizing effect on my lashes because it definitely adds a lot of volume to my lashes.

It's also VERY waterproof! So, I bet it would be great for the hot and humid Korean summer. However, it's easy to remove, unlike the Isehan Kiss Me Waterproof Mascara I used while living in Japan. You don't need to buy a specially formulated mascara remover Clio Salon de Cara, which also makes it good for traveling. In fact, I was able to remove it with just a makeup wipe in a pinch.

The mascara has argan oil and ceramidin infused in its formula, so it is good for conditioning your lashes.

I have noticed that I have to concentrate a lot more on applying this mascara than most of my other waterproof mascaras I have tried. I have found that it's very easy to over-apply and get really, really volumized lashes. However, there is a very thin line between volume and clumpy fibrous mess. It is very more than any other drugstore/road shop brand I have tried.

That being said, I have been getting used to applying it and I haven't had as many clumping mishaps recently.

I am still not sold about purchasing a full size. I'll go back to my Innisfree for a couple weeks and see if my opinion holds.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
