We Love Lashes Wednesday: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

I don’t want to age myself but my mascara this Wednesday has been one of my ultimate favs since the early 90s!

Okay sure i was only between the age of 5-10 years old in the early 90’s but I was a little dancing machine with tons of dance competitions and had to wear makeup.

This Maybelline great lash mascara is the best $5 you will probably spend in your life !

It gives you buildable volume without clumping! The brush on this mascara separates like no other!

Best of all it comes in multiple colors like the basic dark brown, black, blackest black. But it also comes In royal blue, and purple, and green different times of the year!

It’s contact lens safe, ophthalmologist tested and only $5!

Below is a photo of my before and after!

Like I’ve said previously Maybelline has got their mascara science down! This will always be one my favorite mascara of all time!

We love lashes Wednesday!

Tight Wallet Tuesday : Silver and Gold Dr. Martens

How many of you have shopped on hautelook.com?! I love that website! But what do I love more than that website super great deals that help the pocket instead of hurt the pocket! Which is why this is today’s tight wallet Tuesday!

I am a sucker for Docs aka Dr. Martens! I think it’s because after moving back to San Francisco from Los Angeles the weather is a lot cooler and I can Rock boots all the time! Plus I had a pair in the 90s that i loved dearly and the styles they come up with lately are just too cute not to!
So these silver and gold Leyton style docs I first ran across at the Dr martens store in soho New York and fell in love! Instead of a boot they are a leather sneaker super comfy and super cute! I know I needed then both but wasn’t ready to spend $80 per shoe!

Patience is definitely virtue because approximately 3 months later they were on hautelook! Yes hautelook! I was so excited and was thinking do I get them both?! And of course me the over consumer says “duh of course !” The price was $20 cheaper they were going for $59 each! So yes! I got both pairs for a little under $120 got free shipping and I am a happy camper!

If you are ever looking for great deals try hautelook! they have name brand deals for the house, the kids, men, women and beauty for less!

Those are my cute little shoes below! Don’t you love them??

Turn heads Thursday: Beyonces Pixie cut

20130808-105432.jpg

Last night on Instagram Beyonce shocked all of us with a photo of a pixie cut! Most of us were trying to figure it out if it was the real deal or if she was a rocking a wig. But this morning sources are saying she chopped it off!
I love it! She has a beautiful face with great face structure! I actually chopped my hair that short 3 years ago! It’s a nice fresh start and plus its just hair!
It will grow back quickly and on top of that we will never see the ugly growing out in between stage because she has the funds to get her the best weave In town!

Here are the other photos she posted on Instagram

I absolutely love it! She is definitely making a statement

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Wet & Wild “Fergie” On Edge Creme Eyeliner

Out of all the topics I post on my blog Tight Wallet Tuesday is my absolute favorite topic! It’s been a little while since I’ve brought you guys one of these! But I’m truly happy that this is one of my comeback post!

This product makes you say MAC fluidline who?! No lies the consistency, the color pay off , the price, the staying power! This doesn’t even give Mac a run for their money it RAN Mac.

This mystery product is Wet and Wild’s “Fergie” creme liner “on the edge”. It comes in black – little black dress and a brown cocoa Riche!

20130730-101623.jpg

So I figured I would buy the brown color because my dip down fluidline from MAC was completely dried out. I was $5 away from free shipping on drugstore.com and this was perfect $4.99!

20130730-101849.jpg

So the jar looks pretty similar to the fluidline packaging shown above! It’s a nice rich brown and it glides on like you would not believe!

20130730-102022.jpg

I promise you this product is long lasting, waterproof, smudge proof and it has a crease resistant finish so you can use it as a base for a bold smokey eye!

And to add to the amazingness it’s not tested on animals!

It’s a 0.10 oz but a little goes an extremely long way! And actually MAC fluidline is the exact same size
At $16! You can buy almost 4 of these for the price of one!

This product will leave you saying MAC fluidline who? $16 for what?

Go out and get it! You’ll love me for it!
