    Lash Freak Mascara

    I love trying new mascaras. I’m open to trying any kind of mascara, but I only have a few favorites. So did the new Urban Decay Lash Freak Mascara make the cut for my list of favorites? Here’s how Urban Decay describes the mascara: “An intensely volumizing mascara with an asymmetrical brush that lengthens and lifts lashes for a dramatic, wide-eyed look. This ultra-pigmented mascara creates 23.6 times more volume and 40 percent more visible length. The brush was designed to give extreme volume and definition to lashes. The tip defines and separates, while the curved side adds lift. The mascara’s long-wear formula lasts up to 20 hours and is…

    Born This Way Foundation

    Today I’m sharing my thoughts on the Born this Way Foundation from Too Faced. This is definitely the foundation that I’ve been the most excited to talk about in a while. The last one I shared was the Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation Serum. I really liked that foundation at first when I wrote that review. I said it had good coverage (true) and didn’t get patchy on my skin in those first 2 weeks. Well, as the weeks went on I felt like it started to really break down on my skin by the evenings. I don’t know why it changed on my skin after a few weeks, but…

    No Makeup Foundation Serum

    Sunday, already? It’s a 3-day weekend here, thankfully, but I can’t believe it’s already Sunday. I tried to sleep in yesterday, but woke up at 8am to the sound of pouring rain. It was so loud that I had to put my AirPods in and play music to drown out the sound of the pounding rain. Do you have any Memorial Day Weekend plans? I’m at my parents house and just having a small bbq with them since we can’t really see other people here in NJ. So the beauty product I’m talking about is not one that I got during the Sephora sale, but something I got on sale…

    Christie Brinkley’s Authentic Beauty

    Have you guys seen those commercials and infomercials for Christie Brinkley’s skincare line Authentic Skin Care? She’s always been gorgeous and I’m in awe of how amazing and youthful she still looks. I haven’t tried her skin care line, but when I was offered a few items from her Authentic Beauty line, I had to say yes! I was able to pick out 3 items. I chose the Under Eye Concealer in the shade “Light Warm”, the Blink Instant Volumizing Mascara, and Cheek Chic Color & Contour Powder in “Thrill”. First off, how pretty is the rose gold packaging? So sleek and great quality. Under Eye Concealer – I’m hesitant…

    Kat Von D – Studded Kiss

    Kat Von D is a brand that I haven’t tried much from. I have two eye palettes from the brand and I really like both, but I haven’t tried anything else. So I was really excited to receive this lipstick from the Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick line in the shade “Lovecraft” from Influenster. The lipsticks are described as “the creamiest, most cushiony and unbelievably pigmented lipstick to ever cross your lips” so I really wanted to see if it lived up to the description! The shade “Lovecraft” is is a pinky mauve color which is just my shade. This was great because when you get things through Influenster or through…

    Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation

    I’m here with a beauty review today – a foundation! Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation (that’s a mouthful) isn’t new – it’s been around for years, but it’s new to me. I first heard people gushing about it a few years ago and I made a mental note to try it out. But, you know how it is – other products come up or you keep forgetting you wanted to try something and the next thing you know it’s 3 years later! So without further ado let me tell you if this foundation lives up to the hype. As a side note – it’s fitting that I’m talking about…

    L’Oreal Colour Riche Matte Addiction

    Happy Sunday! I hope all your weekends are going well so far. Today, I’m sharing with you some thoughts and photos of a few L’Oreal products that I received from Influenster. I received 3 lipsticks and 3 lipliners all from the Matte collection. Mattes aren’t normally my thing, because I like the glossy look, so I was interested to see if I would like these mattes. I love the names of the shades – love clever names. The shades I received for the lipsticks are: “He Thinks He’s Matte-Cho”, “Matte – Sterpiece”, and “Blake’s Red”. That last one isn’t so clever, but I think it’s from that collection with the…

    Lorac – Beauty & the Beast

    I’ve been pretty good lately about not getting all the limited edition items I want, but when Lorac came out with the Beauty & the Beast collection I really wanted to get my hands on it since it is one of my favorite Disney movies ever. I got the eye palette, cheek palette, and lip glosses. I didn’t get the lipsticks because I didn’t want to go too overboard, plus if I have to choose between glosses and lipsticks, I’d pick glosses. I’ve been using these products this past week and I’ve been really liking them. The quality is great, as I’ve come to expect with the brand, and I love the…

    Clarins Lip Comfort Oil

    I was lucky enough to receive this Clarins Lip Comfort Oil from Influenster last week and I’ve been enjoying using it ever since. Clarins describes it as lip oils that are “infused with 100% pure plant oils nourish, soothe and plump lips — leaving a protective veil of color. Apply before lipstick for a smooth application, wear alone for soft hydrated lips, or top off any lip color for added shine.” I had no idea what shade I would be sent and I was a little apprehensive when I got the mint one. A beautiful blue shade, but what I didn’t know at the time is that the mint lip oil is not tinted…

    L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation

    I’m a fan of L’Oreal foundations and when I was recently in the market for a new one I decided to try the L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation. This foundation is in a squeezy tube and is on the thicker side. I have the shade “natural buff” which is a little dark for me, but I’ve been making it work. It applies a bit orange, but thankfully a few minutes after being buffed in to the skin it changes to a much more natural color. I’ve been applying this the past few weeks with my oval brush from Mikasa Beauty. The foundation offers nice, even coverage. I would say it gives medium…
