Alright, after years of hearing about how great this product is, I went for it. Ten bucks isn't that much, but for some reason I never wanted to pick it up. Mostly just because I don't think I look that great with bottom lash mascara and it never lasts long there anyway. While I have, thus far, only used this one a few times, I am beginning to suspect that I was right. Lasting power is there, but it still doesn't look right on me! It will be good to have this product for more intricate or smokier looks, but I am definitely not a day-to-day bottom lash girl, you know? Have you tried it before? x

I decided that I really wanted a yellow eyeliner for whatever reason, so I found this baby. I haven't broken it in, yet, but I'm pretty excited about the prospects. I've loved the idea of it for years, ever since I saw it in a Nylon spread a few years back. I can't find the specific one, but I also remember this one pretty clearly. Doesn't it look so awesome? I'll try and take a picture of it when I get around to using it, but until then, you can bask in the adorableness of my swatch message smiley face. What are your feelings on non-conventional eyeliner colours? :) x

My friend Mallory has been talking about this product loads over the past couple of months, so I had to give it a whirl. Basically, it is a jelly-like blush that lasts all day, brightens the face (which I tried to capture in the selfie, but it isn't super evident) and it's kind of an amazing texture. The colour is so much fun and even though it looks sort of intimidating, it's super fun! Gives a really bright wash to the cheeks. I'd say it's a pretty awesome pick for the summer, as it's powder free, has pretty great ingredients (argan oil and coconut water!) and it really pretty. If you've been on the fence, consider this a well-intentioned shove.
