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: 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!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Sally Hansen Fuzzy coat

  I was absolutely in love with Nails Inc London Feathers nail polish collection. But, I couldn’t gather myself to pay $9.50 per color although they were uber cute! For one I have tons of nail polish and two I would need all 4 shades! I couldn’t decide! So In other words I would be out of about $40 after taxes!

But to my surprise Sally Hansen launched her identical nail polish top coats! Called Fuzzy Coat. She launched a total of 6 or 7 colors. I bought them on sale at Target for $4.50 each. Which means I got 3 for a little more than $13.00 with tax! Here is the 3 colors I bought!

So if you’re like me and have been loving the Nails Inc Feather collection look check out your local target or CVS and get your fuzzy coat by Sally Hansen. No more than $6 retail price! If you’re lucky you’ll catch a break like I did.

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!
