Eye Makeup Review

Today I’m going to review a couple of new products I picked up at Target the other day. First of all, I am always trying new mascara because I have yet to find one I think is so amazing that I can’t do without. I also love to try different eye shadows and application techniques. Here are the products I used on my eyes today:

Maybelline: “Falsies Volume Express” in very black

Image

Maybelline: “Line Stilleto” in blackest black

Image

Maybelline: “Eyestudio” in green with envy. I applied the lightest color in the pallet to my entire lid then filled in the outer part of my eye and the crease with the goldish color (2nd color from the left) then blended with a brush.

The effect:

 Overall I am not really digging this mascara. It is a little clumpy and doesn’t give as much length and volume as other mascara I’ve tried. The eyeshadow looked great and lasted all day. It blended really well for a light gold/white shimmery effect. I’m sorry the shadow is hard to see… my camera sucks!

What is your favorite brand of drugstore eye makeup? Favorite mascara? The best mascara I’ve tried is Maybelline’s Lash Stilleto and I keep going back to it (I’m a Maybelline fan as you can tell haha). Can anyone recommend a good drugstore eye primer? I have tried a couple but none have done much for me. Thanks 🙂

Outfit Of The Day

I am super excited for fall fashion to kick off, but right now I am still enjoying my spring-y pastels and my summer-y brights! I will probably be able to enjoy them for some time if I want to since I live in Florida 😉 Today’s outfit was a loose white lace top with a Peter Pan collar and a pastel pink skirt with wedges.  Both items are light weight and have flowery patterns-perfect for spring or summer. The lace top came with an attached white tank so no need to wear a bandeau or other tank underneath. I got both the top and the skirt last week so I am sure they are still available if you are interested 🙂

Shirt: Forever 21, $17.80; Skirt: Forever 21, $17.80

Shoes: Kohls, approx $30 (they were a gift so I’m not 100% sure!)

I also wore pearl flower-shaped earrings from Forever 21, $2.80

And a pearl necklace with a pastel pink rose that a friend got me for my birthday when she was in LA 🙂

On my nails is Essie’s “Turquoise & Caicos.” It reminds me of a robin’s egg blue! I loved the way it popped against the pink! Essie polishes are my favorite right now.

Some pictures of the outfit on:

The only thing I didn’t like was that the little collar on my shirt kept getting crooked because of the necklace. Next time I may wear it without it, even though I thought it was so cute! I’m sorry about the quality of the pictures; I don’t own a camera right now so I just used my cell phone. If it turns out I like blogging then I will buy a good camera. Let me know what your favorite trends are right now. Are you starting to break out the fall clothes or sticking with summer fashion for now? 🙂
