Laura Geller All-Stars Collection

Laura Geller All-Stars Collection

Guess who picked up another makeup collection on QVC? Yeah.. this girl. It’s becoming a problem honestly lol. But to be fair, I did need to get a Balance N’ Brighten foundation in Fair, because the only shade I currently have is Porcelain and it’s waaaay to white for me nowadays. I guess I’m not the same pasty chick that I used to be ;) Plus, it’s just plain hard to turn down a Laura Geller collection under $50.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

This was my first time trying out anything from the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics line. I have been dabbling back into the mineral makeup scene quite a bit lately, so I was excited to try an established mineral brand that was new to me. I’ve seen Youngblood products around youtube and a few of my friends rave about their foundations. Pretty sure I’ve also seen them mentioned in a few of my Allure mags.

LashEm – 8 Week Review

18 Dec

LashEm – 8 Week Review

I recently documented my results after using an eyelash enchancing product, LashEm, for 8 weeks. LashEm Measurable Difference Lash Gel claims to be a conditioning, lash boosting formula that’s geared towards short, weak and brittle lashes. I don’t have the most unfortunate lashes around, but of course there is always room for improvement. My lashes do tend to get brittle and fall out easily, so I was excited to see if LashEm lived up to it’s claims.

Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette

Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette

The curse of the QVC Today’s Special Value has struck again. I was doing soooo good at resisting the temptation to buy this, but a fellow makeup junkie finessed me into a purchase. And I am SO glad she did! This fully-loaded Smashbox Mega Palette was on sale for $84.96 or 4 payments of $24.76 and completely worth every cent. I know the price tag seems high upon first glance, but take a look at what this baby contains:

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Set

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Set

It seems like every makeup tutorial I’ve watched lately has used one of these NYX JEPs (Jumbo Eye Pencils) as a base under their shadow. I spotted this set of 6 on sale on Hautelook a few weeks ago, and since I had been hoarding a $10 off coupon, I went ahead and purchased em. Hautelook’s sales have been less than impressive lately so.. I figured this was as good a time as any :) Original price was $16 (-$10 off coupon + $5 shipping) I paid about $11.

Review & Swatches of Urban Decay 24/7 Jackpot Eyeliners

Review & Swatches of Urban Decay 24/7 Jackpot Eyeliners

Urban Decay just ended their latest Friends & Family sale, 25% off! I picked up some De-Slick Skindinavia spray and the super duper awesome 24/7 Jackpot eye pencil set.

This set ROCKS! It’s $39 (although I only paid $29.25 because of the sale). It comes with NINE travel-sized pencils and one full size pencil, which is an $18 value in itself. You get the most popular color, Zero (black), in the full size. The other nine pencils are various shades of blue, green, purple, etc. They are travel sized, but they will still last a pretty long time because you most likely won’t be using them as everyday liners.

Review of Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara

Review of Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara

Seeing as how I am a total impulse shopper at the drugstore, I picked up a tube of the Maybelline Colossal Mascara. I have been hearing great things about this stuff, but I have been super disappointed in every other Maybelline mascara I’ve tried recently (especially The Falsies.. ugh). So I bought it with high hopes!
