Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara review

I know I recently did a mascara review, but here’s another one!  I told you I’m a mascara girl, so I can’t help it! Okay so I have been trying out the Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara for a few weeks now.  At first I was not impressed.  I am not used to the kind of wand/bristles that it has.  One thing I knew I did like from the beginning was the formula.  It washes off easily and I like the way it looks on the lashes. Some facts about this mascara: -The wand is very flexible and bendable-  It is unique and not quite like others I’ve tried -Washable -Build-able, but not as much as others I have tried Now that it has been a few weeks since I first tried it, I would say that it’s not my absolute favorite but I would buy it again.  I got used to the wand, although I still prefer a different style.  I liked the fact that the sides with the smaller bristles coated my bottom lashes nicely. The main thing I enjoy is how it is easily washed off- which is a big deal for me.  I don’t like scrubbing my […]

Review of Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation

As I have stated in a previous post about the maybelline concealer,  I was never really a fan of liquid makeup.  Which now that I think about it, it’s weird because I’ve never even tried any.  I just knew I didn’t like my face feeling smothered with makeup and I felt like that’s what liquid foundation would do. So I decided to give liquid foundation a try after watching a few reviews.  Since I didn’t really like the thought of liquid foundation, I figured it would be best to start with a light coverage one.  I ended up going with the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation.  I have been using it for a few weeks and I think it’s safe to say that I do not mind the liquid foundation, at least this one so far. What I like about this foundation is that it feels like I don’t really have anything on.  It just feels like a moisturizer does on my skin.  It blended very well with my skin.  I do have oily skin so I had to blot it every now and then but I never saw any blotchy sections, which is what I was mainly afraid of. (My […]

Maybelline The Rocket Mascara Review

I have been trying out the Maybelline The Rocket Mascara for a few weeks/months.  Let’s just say it’s a love/hate relationship.  First of all I would like to mention that I am definitely a mascara girl when it comes to makeup.  That is probably the one makeup item that I have tried the most brands of.  I’d have to say my two favorite mascara brands are Maybelline and Loreal. Also, it may be different for me than you because I like certain things in mascaras that you may not care about. A few things I want out of a mascara: *My lashes to be separated pretty well *Volume but not too clumpy *Build-able *Washable What I liked about the Maybelline The Rocket Mascara: I really love the way the mascara looks on the lashes. It gives great volume, but doesn’t leave my lashes too clumpy. It’s coats the lashes really well and I am able to get a good two coats on, maybe even just one and they still look great. What I dislike: It can be a little flakey, more so when washing it off- which I guess is to be expected when you are trying to get it […]

Makeup favorite: Maybelline highlighting concealer

I have never been a huge fan of liquid make-up including concealer, but when I saw reviews of this maybelline highlighting concealer I had to try it and see what all the buzz was about. I don’t like liquid makeup because it feels greasy and heavy on my face and concealer never matched my skin tone just right. I usually just put pressed powder on and thats it. So I went to target and bought it. I tried it that same night. I LOVED it, and for someone who doesn’t like thick or liquid makeup I was surprised. It didn’t feel thick or greasy. It really brightened my face up, it’s pretty awesome! I even wear it by itself sometimes. I definitely recommend trying it!
