Korres Abyssinia Oil Volumising Mascara

I got sucked into the beauty aisle at Winners. A dangerous place for someone with a love for bargains and high end makeup. There were other products by brands like Pixi, Stilla, Elizabeth Arden and the list goes on. I was pretty impressed and settled on Korres Abyssinia Oil Mascara.



I bought this for $7.99. Winners said the original price was $23.99 *remember all prices listed on this blog are in Canadian dollars.

So we know it's a good deal, now onto the quality of the product.



I like the effect it has on my lashes. As you can see from the photos, it isn't too dramatic. I don't find my lashes are as defined, long or voluminous compared to using Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping. It also droops throughout the day, not long lasting.
However, I find this mascara gives my lashes a 'feathery' quality that is pretty :)


The brush is tiny! I have a lot of control with it and I'm able to get into every nook and cranny! This mascara works well on both top and bottom lashes. I read on another blog that this product is 'all natural' and is formulated without parabens. It doesn't leave my lashes feeling damaged and it easy to remove.

Overall: I'm not over the moon about this mascara. If you are looking for a more natural look it might be perfect for you! I like the ingredients and integrity of the brand. Though I won't be repurchasing this mascara, it isn't a regret!

On a personal note.. sorry I've been slow responding to comments, tweets and checking out other blogs. This week has been pretty hectic. I haven't even had the chance to watch trashy reality television :O

With that in mind, are there any tv shows I need to watch? People always recommend Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones but I gravitate towards Bravo..

  1. I havent tried this, or heard of it before but looks like it'd be great for an everyday natural look. I should really try something from Korres.

  2. Very subtle but pretty looking mascara -- sometimes a more natural look is nice! I do love very voluminous lashes though!

    1. It's certainly flattering and you won't risk looking too "overdone" with this product!

  3. do you have Castle around your area? OMG we dont have real-time broadcast here but I just love that show and they say it's airing season 4 on the 24th??

    Anyway mascaras with tiny wands are always lovely to work with. i have not tried a Korres product before though :(

  4. I've been so overwelmed by KORRES's skincare products that I forgot they had makeup - I haven't een had a look at them to be honest! I've struggled with natural mascaras in the past as they never achieve what I'm looking for though Z=

    1. The lip butters seem really popular. I often hear Teen Vogue Beauty Editor Eva Chen talk about them ^.^

  9. First, let me tell you that you have a wonderful pair of blue eyes. :) The mascara looked great on your lashes but too bad the product doesn't last long. :) Love the voluminous effect though.
