It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

Beauty, It Cosmetics

What makeup product can you not live without? For me, that’s a simple answer… MASCARA!
Today’s blog post features the Superhero Mascara by It Cosmetics!
IMG_4933Many of you know that I love this mascara because I rave about it on snapchat often and it’s a must-have when I travel. I used to use two mascaras every day, but not since March. When I’m sent new launches or when I buy products myself, I always like to take pictures first, then test out for at least 1-2 months, and then give my thoughts. I’ve been using Superhero since March and repurchased my 2nd one from Ulta towards the end of June, and just purchased another one for my freelance kit!  Continue Reading

Flutter Lashes in LINDSAY- Photos & Review :)

Flutter Lashes

Hey Readers (:
Today’s featured product are the Lindsay lashes from Flutter Lashes.
http://www.flutterlashes.com/

IMG_5186Featuring the Flutter Lashes named LINDSAY!
I’m so in love with the lashes!
They are so lightweight and fairly easy to apply!
IMG_5187 I absolutely adore the pink and black packaging!
I always save the boxes because I am constantly re-using the lashes and so they’ll stay in place!
They can be worn so many times! 1 pair is going on it’s 17th application:)
Flutter Lashes is kind of a BIG deal!
IMG_5188 IMG_5189These lashes are not crazy dramatic.
I can assure you that they are perfect for every day wear if you like wearing lashes on a daily basis.
Personally, I have very sensitive eyes– I don’t wear contacts, and for the longest time, I would not apply false lashes.
I have long lashes as it is— but a little bit of flutter never hurt anybody!
These are lightweight lashes, therefore they don’t affect the sensitivity I have towards lashes!
IMG_5190

And here are 3 looks that I created using the LINDSAY lashes from Flutter Lashes!

Overall,  I must say that I am overly impressed with the price and quality of these lashes. As you can see,  I have been able to create so many looks! I love that I am able to re-use lashes!  When shopping for lashes, you must remember: “quality over quantity.” You get for what you pay for, and Flutter Lashes delivers the very best of the best! I am definitely satisfied and I highly recommend Flutter Lashes, especially if you’re a make-up artist or you’re one of those that just cant’t live without lashes! You have a HUGE collection to browse & I’m sure you’ll come to find that you will have multiple favorites:)

PROS: lightweight, quality over quantity, amazing packaging, easy application. 

CONS: none:)

Anastasia Lash Genius Clear Waterproof Top Coat- Photos & Review :)

Anastasia Beverly Hills

Hey Readers 🙂
Today’s featured products is the Anastasia Lash Genius: Waterproof Top Coat Mascara 🙂

IMG_3194What it is:
A clear topcoat that instantly waterproofs, refreshes, and protects any mascara all day, without drying or clumping.

What it does:
This lightweight formula glides on smooth, dries quickly, and gives your lashes a touchable, soft lacquer finish that lasts all day.

How many of you have a favorite mascara that volumizes, lengthens, and does everything you need in a mascara to do– yet is not waterproof? Well, if that’s you… this is the product that you are in need of. First, apply however many coats of mascara, & then after, apply a coat of this clear waterproof mascara from Anastasia. This will leave your non-waterproof mascara officially waterproof!


Many of you always ask me for my favorite waterproof mascara, but that’s a little hard for me to tell you my favorite, because what I look for in  a mascara might not be what you’re looking for. Some look for a more wet consistency of mascara, yet I prefer a drier consistency, etc. This topcoat will keep your mascara in place, therefore no more raccoon eyes or mascara running down your face!

If you’re a swimmer, wanting to be able to wear mascara… this is for you!
If you’re going to a funeral or a sad movie… this is for you!
If you’re dancing the night away… this is for you!
If you live in San Diego… this is for me!
This is an amazing product, try it!

This will not clump your mascara. Say yes to no more smudging!
Thanks to the Anastasia team for such a great product!
You truly are geniuses for creating the LASH GENIUS!

Overall, I recommend this product to everyone! It delivers everything it says it will do! It’s affordable, & really beneficial to those who can’t find their favorite mascara in waterproof form! Great product! No more raccoon eyes or smudging! Perfect for me… perfect for you! 🙂 Remember to remove with a waterproof make-up remover!

**Comment below & let us know if you’ve tried this before 🙂

PROS: waterproof, mascara doesn’t budge, amazing!!
CONS: none!
