Yanqina Dense Ultra Resistance Volume Mascara Review

 Hello sweethearts!

Not long ago I won a Yanqina Dense ultra resistance volume Mascara from a KKCenterHK giveaway (KKCenterHK is an asian online shop in which you can find everything beauty related), I received it yesterday and I always get very excited when I get something for free so I decided to make a review about it asap. (Even though my last review was also about another mascara, sorry girls, this is mascara review week haha).

 The packaging is very shiny, the metalized parts on the cover are iridescent (their color changes depending on the light). Besides that, it's shape is pretty much normal, just like any other mascara's packaging. The goupillon is big and thick, it's very easy to use and reaches everywhere easily, it's also the average goupillon you'll find in most mascaras. It feels very cheap and it's made of super light plastic.

To be honest, I had never tried an asian mascara so I didn't know what to expect from it.
I had never heard about the brand yanqina and had never seen their products, so I decided to make a little research about it.


"YANQINA Dense Ultra Resistance Volume Mascara increases the definition of your eyelashes,
and also leaves a long-lasting curl so that you can have charming makeup for the entire day!"

Apparently it can only be found at KKCenterHK and it costs 19.85$ (or 14.64€)
I tried looking for it in google and ebay and didn't find any results besides the one from KKCenterHK which was kind of surprising to me. On the other hand I could find other Yanqina products in other shops, but not this mascara in particular.

Anyway, This is how it looks on me:

I like the fact that you can barely see any lumps if any at all, and how well it defines your eyelashes. It certainly does what it says in it's description. It's easy to remove but it's not waterproof so I guess it should be haha.The formula is good.

¿Things I didn't like about it? It's packaging feels very cheap considering it's a 20$ mascara, it just looks like any 4$ mascara you'd purchase in your usual supermarket. I don't really care because it does it's job, but if I had seen it somewhere it WOULD NOT have called my attention at all and I'd have never bought it cause of it's cheap appearance. It also can only be found in one shop, which can be bothersome for some people.

¿Would I repurchase this product? 

I don't think so because there are cheaper mascaras that do the same thing and can be found easily, I definitely liked the product but I find it a little expensive and hard to find.


♥♥♥♥♥ 3/5

Hope this was helpful :P

Avon Mega Effects Mascara Review

Hi cuties!

Some of you asked me about my actual mascara which is Mega effects from Avon, so I decided to make a review of it.

 It's actually a product I stole from my mum because I don't normally purchase stuff from avon, I still know it costs around 11€.

  The first thing that caught my attention about it is it's... weird shape and packaging?
Then, I used it to see if it was any good and I fell in love with the result. It's kind of a hate-love relationship because I hate the applicator, it's very easy to get your eyelid dirty with mascara because of it, and it's very hard to use. On the other hand, I really liked the result and how it looked on my eyelashes.

On the first picture you can see my eyelashes with no mascara at all on them, I never curl them because they're naturally curled, that's why they look a little wild haha, you can even see they stay placed in the same position after applying the mascara.

I think this product really defines your eyelashes and frames your eyes, what I liked the most about it, is the fact that it never looks lumpy and makes your eyelashes smoother than most of the other mascaras I've tried.
You can actually see a few lumps in this picture but it's because I used the macro option on my camera and it even captured the tiniest eyebrow hairs I didn't even know were there, it looks way better in real.

¿Would I repurchase? Definitely, it's my favorite mascara at the moment.


♥♥♥♥ 4/5
(Because of it's weird packaging and applicator)
