after waiting for 30 minutes and a shower...
Hello there evenly colored, vibrant hair! Please stay for long?

I know it looks almost the same shade as Mocha Orange, but in person, its a tad darker especially indoors. Please excuse me while I obsess about my dark eyebrows. I need a salon fix stat! >.<

For a more detailed post + instructions, please view my first DIY hair dye post here.

Thanks for looking!

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Waterproof Mascara

Mascaras are not just Minnie Mouse's best friend, they're mine too! Its one of those "can't live without" products in my makeup bag, its my lash curler's best friend, and together, they complete me. *cuddles with 'scara* I have been quite lucky that my mascara picks have been consistently good and now I will share another tube of peeper prettifying wonder, the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Waterproof Mascara [length & volume lash artillery]. I am always drawn to waterproof versions because I am terribly afraid of smudging and raccoon eyes.
It comes in a weighty, hair finish metal tube which undoubtedly makes it a luxurious mascara.

As you can see, the wand looks like a standard mascara comb, full and dense but not to the point of being clumpy. I hope that made sense :P

Here's how it looks on me, no other eye makeup just the ETK mascara:
my bottom lashes are bare so you can see how the mascara thickens each lash.

This one is quite amazing, it does what it says- volume and length are evident, plus its really comfortable to wear! It has a lightweight formula which made my lashes stay curled all day and soft to touch without smudging nor flaking. If you are one to splurge on mascaras (HKD280), I'd TOTALLY recommend this to you. It also comes in a regular (non-waterproof) formula in black, brown and gray shades.

Happy hump day!
