We love lashes Wednesday: Wink of Pink Maybelline Great Lash

20130821-115825.jpg

So you’ve all seen my wonderful Maybelline great lash haul from target the other day! I figured I might as well swatch and try all of the colors and present them to you in my ” we love lashes Wednesday series”.

Today’s first great lash limited edition mascara I will feature is the wink of pink! I’ve never had a pink mascara so I was pretty excited to try it!
As you can see from the photos this mascara is really pink! It was even pink enough for my boyfriend to say ” hey your eyelashes are pink” !
The pigment is even more intense when you apply a lash primer underneath. I used tartes lash primer and got great results!

The photo above shows my lashes before, mascara without primer and mascara with primer!

This is definitely a game changer! Too bad its limited edition! Better hop on ir before they disappear! Maybelline does it again!

Target Haul: Maybelline Great Lash Limited Edition 2013

20130820-091633.jpg

For the last month I have been on the hunt for these limited edition Maybelline great lash mascaras! I first ran across the ad for these in Allure or Elle magazine about a month ago, I tore the advertisement out and put it in my planner to remind me. I don’t know about you but if I don’t have a list or a reminder these days I totally forget what I’m supposed to do/ or buy.

So to my surprise while back to school shopping I finally found them! In all 6 colors, and you know me couldn’t pick 3 so I got all 6! They were only $4.50 per mascara and the best colors ever. Plus, when I searched for them online on amazon people were selling them for $15 a mascara because they are limited and selling out! Super glad I found them!

The colors come in pink, berry, purple, blue, teal and green! And of course they all have extremely catchy names.

Pink = wink of pink
Teal = teal appeal
Purple = vision in violet
Berry = so very berry
Blue = I see blue
Green = green with envy

Did anyone purchase any of these mascaras? And if so which ones did you get?!

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!

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!

ImageIt is literally Christmas in July! Literally two days after receiving my June Julep Maven box I received my July box! Although this is only my second box with Julep this is my fave! The theme, the packaging, the inserts, the colors of the polish I absolutely love it all.

The theme is “California Coast” it has the golden gate bridge in the background. It’s representing the beautiful San Francisco. Sooo pretty. The colors represent the sun and the ocean. The brown zig zagged tissue represents the sand! This box was just perfectly put together!

The marketing and product development team did an outstanding job!
