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: Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara review

Hi everyone I’m back with another we love lashes Wednesday! The three day weekend totally threw me off and my days were all off! But it is now Wednesday meaning we only have 2 days to the weekend! Yay!
My review today is on Rimmel London’s lash accelerator mascara. When in CVS this totally caught my eye because it is supposed to not only work as a lengthening and volumizing mascara but overtime or their studies show within 30 days your lashes will look 117% longer! Seriously who has ever complained about long lashes! I surely don’t.

20130529-092711.jpg

So here is my before and afters of using this mascara for the first time! I can definitely see the length and volume aspect. I will continue to use this mascara for the next 30 days and keep record to see if it actually helps my lashes grow!
Ill make sure to update you with my progress!

We love lashes Wednesday! No one has ever said they wished

We Love Lashes Wednesday: Shiseido Perfect Mascara Full Definition

ImageThese weeks fly by so quickly! Here it is wednesday again! Two days closer to the weekend and back with another Lash review!

Today I will be reviewing Shiseido’s Perfect Mascara Full definition. I received this as a sample in an online Sephora order, I am a sucker for samples and think it is a great way to try a product before investing your money! Because like most I hate returning.

Anyways about the mascara.

This shiseido mascara is designed to add volume, length and also separate the lashes. It is also mentioned to be non clumping, and contain the ingredient camellia oil complex to keep the lashes healthy and conditioned. It can be purchased in two colors: black and dark brown. It is $24.00 for a 0.29 oz size.

Image

Up above is my before and after of the Shiseido mascara. Although you can see a difference in volume, it is not one of my favorite mascaras. I have personally seen more volume and length in other mascaras. I also noticed it beginning to clump more than expected during the second application of product.

I personally would not purchase this product at $24. It might not work for me, but it just might work for someone else. It does definitely give some results but not the results I am looking for.  And this is the perfect example of why I love samples! I was able to give it a go without having buyers remorse!

Until the next we love lashes wednesday.

We Love Lashes Wednesday: Benefit They’re Real Mascara Review

ImageI’m BAAACK with a love we love lashes wednesday! Today I’m reviewing Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara this is honestly one of my top five mascaras! The first time I tried it about 9 months ago I absolutely fell in love with it.

It’s designed to be your all in one mascara, it lengthens, volumizes, curls, lifts and separates. It is not noted to be waterproof or smudge proof but Geez louise this mascara is difficult to get off!

 

 

 

Image

It comes with a crazy little brush, this brush was obviously designed to do everything it says it’s going to do. For me I notice it really helps with separating the lashes as well as volumizing. I think that’s why I love this mascara so much because I already have the length I just need the volume. I love the fact that it is super black! I hunt for mascaras that are extremely black so when I do decide to do a full smokey eye I know my lashes will still stand out. The only con to me for this product is the difficulty of getting it off! I know it sounds weird most of us WANT and NEED for our mascara to not smudge or come off, but I struggle with taking off waterproof mascaras. It is a battle with my lashes and the makeup and the makeup usually wins while I have little lashes in between my finger tips. One of my goals in life is  to hold on to the lashes that I do have! 

 

An easy removal tip: use a cleanse off oil, then a makeup wipe, then wash face.

Image

Here is my before and after of the Benefit They’re Real Mascara. 

As you can see the volume is definitely there. 

This is one of the non drugstore mascara’s I would buy again. It really works for me. It retails at $23.00 so it’s not too pricey. It can be found at Sephora.com, Macy’s, A benefit boutique, Ulta, and Benefitcosmetics.com! 

Give it a try! Or if you are a Sephora Beauty Insider, a travel size is included in the Birthday Gift this year! So save some money and don’t forget to pick up your birthday gift at Sephora!

Until the next we love lashes wednesday.

love and lashes.

We Love Lashes Wednesday- Tarte Cosmetics

It’s Wednesday which means it’s time to review a new mascara! Because I love lashes! Better yet EVERYONE loves lashes! And since I am a product junkie I’m still on the hunt to find my PERFECT mascara.

Today’s lash victim is Tarte Cosmetics. I chose to try a primer this time around which I don’t usually do because they never really work out in my favor. I chose the Tarte Lash Primer along with the Tarte Lights Camera lashes mascara in black. I received these in a sample package from a Sephora order and I am glad I did. One reason I am glad i got these as a sample is because the Primeeyes Tarte Lash Primer alone is $22 and if this is something that I will be needing to replace once every 3 months I need to make sure the investment is worth it! And secondly, I love sample mascaras because for some reason the smaller brush in the sample size and the miniature size handle works better for me and my tiny hands!

So let’s talk about what the product is supposed to do:

Tarte Lash Primer: High performance primer with natural ingredients (Hydroplant) to enhance volume and length of lashes.

Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes! : 4 in 1 mascara designed to lengthen, curl, volumize and condition. Tarte’s motto a push up bra for your lashes! It’s active ingredient for conditioning the lashes is Olive Esters.

Image

So here is a photo of my lashes before, lashes with primer, and lashes with primer and mascara.

I definitely noticed an increase in volume and length. Next time around I would love to try it with just the mascara alone to see the amount of length and volume I get from just the Mascara. Plus the primer made it a little clumpier than I usually like my lashes to look. But, you can totally see the primer does it’s job because my lashes definitely lengthened and thickened within one application. The primer and mascara definitely talk the talk and I would rate it a 6 out of 10 and that is only for the bunching of the lashes with the primer

The best thing about Tarte cosmetics is that it is made with less chemicals and these products are formulated without parabens, mineral oils, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates, synthetic fragrance, and triclosan. Perfect for someone who wants to find a cosmetic line that is more on the natural side.

We Love Lashes Wednesday!- Covergirl Clump Crusher Review

There’s one thing in the world besides your eyebrows that you need to make any makeup look complete and that is LASHES! Falsies or Mascara, your choice but you must use! Lashes bring out the glam in all of us.

For this weeks WE LOVE LASHES Wednesday I chose to try one of the newest mascaras from Covergirl called the Clump Crusher. Every time I see the commercial on the TV I tell myself I gotta try that. It was even more beneficial for me to try it because this week CVS has a buy one get one 50% off deal on Covergirl cosmetics! So I picked up the Clump Crusher as well as my staple mascara which is the Covergirl Lashblast in the orange packaging.Image

The new Clump Crushers claim to fame is 0 clumps and 200% more volume! When trying this on myself I noticed that I really did not have any clumping. I applied two coats on the top and bottom lashes. Usually when using a mascara on my bottom lashes this is where i notice the most clumping. I have to say I did not get any clumping even with my second coat. The fine tooth comb like bristles on the brush evenly comb out the lashes and distribute the product evenly. I also like this mascara because it is water resistant. I am not a big fan of waterproof mascara because it is so difficult to take off the lashes and you end up pulling out your own lashes in order to remove product. Image

Considering we are supposed to change our mascara on a monthly basis, and have it for no more than 3 months I would definitely purchase this mascara again. It does what it says it’s going to do, it has multiple colors: brown, dark brown, black and very black. It volumizes the lashes and I can definitely vouch for the 0 clumps! It’s cost effective only $8.99 or if you find a good promotion you can get two for $12 and stock up for the next month! You can’t beat that.

Here are my lashes before the mascara.

I actually enjoy this mascara a lot! I tend to not get much volume with most mascaras and seeing the after picture the volume is definitely there! Thanks Covergirl for creating another awesome product that doesn’t break the pockets!

We Love Lashes Wednesday: Stay tuned for the next lash review.
