Liebster Award

The Liebster Award… or as I like to call it: the ‘LIBRA’ (or LOBSTER) award! Thanks to Simply Stella for making me aware of this… I’ll answer your questions as best as I can, considering I’m usually rubbish at question answering.

  • Nominate 11 blogs, giving them 11 questions to answer (notifying them of the nomination, obvs).

The questions:

The type that you can put inside of the mouth and then consume to an appetising and satisfying extent.

Mr Lava Lava.

  • Running or yoga?

None of the above.

  • Do you put syrup on your pancakes?

Does orange/lemon juice and sugar count as syrup?

WUNDERKISS

Yes – I know the last post shared on here was about WUNDER2 – but, I mean, it’s called WUNDER2… So, expect TWO posts!

Looking for hydrated lips that are perfectly plumped and pouty? Look no further than WUNDERKISS PROFESSIONAL! You control your level of plump when you activate the product by injecting the Plumping Booster one level at a time (low, medium or high) into the Plumping Gloss to give your lips instant volume and shine. Prep your lips with WUNDERKISS Controlled Lip Plumping Gloss and leave it by itself or dab it off after a few minutes and apply your favorite lip color.

I have to confess that I purchased the WUNDERKISS Professional – Controlled Lip Plumping Gloss and hadn’t a Sam Heck how to use it.

Listen, it’s way too technical for me… It didn’t look it when I was researching it. However, when it arrived, I broke it and used all the solution in one go. Whoops! (Yes, it came with an instruction manual but ‘me no speak English’ is my only excuse, because tbf it didn’t make sense in the way that the English language should).

For those of you who don’t know, the Controlled Lip Plumping Gloss allows you to choose how plump you’d like your lips. So, you can choose between my somewhat flatty patties and Pete Burns/Kim K or Kylie Jenner. The choice is yours…

I don’t understand the packaging… It’s a syringe with solution inside it (apparently)… I didn’t know this. There was a step by step guide of how to use it, yet I still couldn’t figure it out. You know that song ‘Forever Young’? I’m Forever DUMB! As you can imagine, my heavy handed palm/fingers decided it’d be a great idea to rinse the syringe all the way. FAIL. That solution should’ve lasted a month, it didn’t even last a day.

Aside from the sheer stupidity of the packaging, I’ve got to say that the formula itself is so good. It does plump my lips and makes them appear shiny (which is what gloss is supposed to do, guys!) and soft. It evened out the skin on my lips and left my lips pert and plump even after drying. I love it.

The sensations I felt upon application was a cooling of the lips together with a slight tingle. I felt like the nose of Samantha from Bewitched. (My favourite show growing up). If you’re unfamiliar with it, first off – familiarise yourself. Then, then understand that her nose twitches.

WUNDER2

Today, I took a girl called Cara to Sunday Mass… #Mascara!

Who’s ready for another lashtastic and punderful mascara review? If you’re not, you need to click the “x” in the top left corner of the screen.

This time it’s the turn of the WUNDERFUL WUNDER2!

WUNDEREXTENSIONS Lash Extension & Volumizing Mascara combines two formulas in the same tube that blend together seamlessly on application to create a false lash effect. The ‘blue’ formula nourishes and hydrates the lash, making it thicker and ready for the next formula. The ‘black’ formula attaches mini 3D lash extensions to the lash creating length and even more volume. This Dual-Formula Technology enables our WUNDEREXTENSIONS Mascara to provide you with multiple lash benefits with just one stroke of the brush.

Whooooo! I really wore the hell out of this mascara, guys! 😉

I’ve been wearing it for a few days and I can categorically tell you that it’s the best mascara since “the best mascara“.

Yes, I know – every time I discover a mascara, it’s the new “best” one. Honestly though, this one actually is.

Do you want me to tell you why..?

Okay.

Firstly: it doesn’t flake like a Cadbury’s… I have a real issue with my previous mascaras, even if I didn’t mention it… They flake off and start leaving bits of dried formula all over my under-eye area.

Contrary to what you may believe, I don’t spend a lot of time looking into mirrors! Therefore, you can bet that I’ve been known to sit through meetings looking like an eczema ridden panda/raccoon. Yeah, not remotely nice or attractive, but there you go… This is a problem no more thanks to WUNDER2.

Secondly, it is the first mascara to exist (that I’ve discovered) which washes off without leaving marks or stains!

WOW. Can I get several “OMG! THAT’S SO FETCH!”s, please? Thanks.

Like, seriously… It’s BOOMTOWN! I can declare that I washed my face just once and didn’t have to follow up with a wet-wipe. Girls/guys who wear makeup, you know how hard it is to take mascara off, don’t you? It’s a mission!

Thirdly, the formula is the bees knees (not my own because… DON’T EVEN MENTION MY KNEES!) it’s got fibres that lengthen the lashes, fan them out and make them look like falsies. Don’t worry though, ’cause they’re left looking like the most natural looking falsies… Falsies that look like realsies. Yes, that’s more like it!

Fourthly (‘how long is this going to go on for..?’ Your guess is as good as mine!), I enjoy the richness in the colour of this mascara’s tint. All black errtaaaaaaaang! The darker the hair, the cooler the flair… #Raven.

Fifthly, and by ‘fifthly‘ I mean the number FIVE-LY not FILTHY – you FILTHY ANIMAL/S!

Anyway, fifthly,  it’s just the be all and end all of the society of lashville… So, if you’ve got lashes (or lash extensions), wrap your them around this wand…You’re going to want to!

Sixthly (this may take a while), let’s mention the wand… WANDS AND DAT!

Bae. It’s the BAE ALL AND BAEND ALL OF WANDS! You’re BAEsically going to WANT this WAND. It’s thin, but gets in all the right places, covering all lashes at all angles, top and bottom.

Seventhly (oh, just pull up a chair!), there’s no excess of formula on the wand. The right amount of formula is always on the wand – ready to be applied. Also, that leads me onto eighthly and ninthly smoothly (wait, that could also be tenthly).

Eighthly: a little goes a long way. Kinda like Mo Farah but not. Look, I’ve never met him, so how should I know?!

Ninthly, it doesn’t clump. Like at all. Each lash is fanned out and looking naturally tinted, curled and lengthened (probably up to SEVENteenthly now).

What makes up my ‘tenthly’, you ask? This mascara is smooth like a cigar… I don’t smoke and don’t condone smoking at all, but I’m guessing cigars are smooth.
