Took a stroll into the new Walgreens for nothing more than a box for shipping something I needed to return. The first thing I see when I walk in is this gorgeous cardboard display of maybellines fall 2013 on the runway collection!

It was like purple rain! I immediately went crazy and threw all of the purple lipsticks in my basket! Purple is my favorite color and I love it in lipstick form because its screams fashion forward! As I continued to look through what they had to offer, I died when I saw the purple gloss! Omg this gloss color I have never seen anywhere! It was like poisonberry by limecrime in a gloss form!

Here are swatches of the colors I purchased.

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!

We love lashes Wednesday!

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 : Maybelline Falsies review

Okay SO I know I am off by a day! But we still love lashes on Thursdays so I am back with a review of another mascara! 

Everyone swears by this mascara, and actually I do too! I feel like Maybelline has almost got mascara down to a science! 90% of their mascaras I have tried deliver! Falsies yes this is the deliverer. Long lushes lashes full of life!  They maximize my lashes to the fullest potential ! There is something about that spoon brush that just maximizes my lashes in every aspect without clumping ! 

Here is a photo of my before and after Image

I love me some cost effective mascara that does the job! Because $6 opposed to $30 ill take any day.

 

I am glam.

We love lashes all days of the week.

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids

ImageWhile reading my Glamour magazine on the plane last weekend I came across this ad and was like “YES! I need this orangey coraly color and whatever other color it comes in!  Especially if the pigment is just like that!” I fell in love with an orange very similar to this in the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #12- Coral Incandescent described as a bright cajun coral. But, you know sometimes you can’t just dish out $34 on a lipstick! And yes the YSL lipsticks are worth every penny, but right now I probably should not be spending $34 on one lipstick! Especially because these new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids run about $7-$8 per lipstick and that means you can get 5 for the price of one! And yes because I really wanted to try these I had my boyfriend take me to CVS right after we got off the plane. hahaha.

Immediately I found them and tried not to be excessive and limit myself to 3, but that never works. I left with 5!  I think there are eight in total so I am only missing 3. I got #860-pink pop, #870-shocking coral, #880-electric orange, #895-on fire red, and #905- brazen berry! Image

ImageFirst and foremost the bright orange translucent packaging is so eye catching you immediately take a double take! And then you see the colored stickers on the bottom, and you already think to yourself these are going to be gorge! Since I am all about sanitation and cleanliness I never swatch the colors on my hand at the store, because you would hate for someone to do that to your lipstick right? So I take a chance and buy them all! LOL. That’s just the gluttonous me talking.

So when I finally got home and had the chance to try them I was convinced that I needed the last three that I did not buy. The pigment on these lipsticks are wonderful even on a dark skin tone. They are extremely hydrating and creamy on the lips. And the best part of all they have longevity so you will not have to reapply that frequently.

Below are swatches of all 5 lipsticks that I purchased.

Top Left: #860- Pink Pop

Bottom Left: #870 Shocking Coral

Top Right: #880- Electric Orange

Middle Right: #895- On fire Red

Bottom Right: #905-Brazen Berry

If you have been dying to get some bright lipsticks and the $15-34 dollar lipstick is out of your price range, head to CVS or Walmart or target and find these! Sometimes our wallets are a little tighter than we want it to be! But we absolutely have to have a new lipstick. I promise these will make your day, and you’ll forget about that MAC lipstick you wanted for now and save $7 doing it!
