Hi there 🙂 Today I’m going to share a couple of my favorite products I’ve been using so far this fall. I use a lot of drugstore products because I shop way too much to spend a ton of money on makeup lol. First of all, I have been using a new mascara that was recommended to me by my mom:
This is L’Oreal Voluminous False Lashes in “Blackest Black”
I’ve also been using this Maybelline Expert Wear eye shadow pallet in “Charcoal Smokes” to create a smokey eye
For the darkest color on my outer eye, I use Revlon Diamond Lust in “Night Sky”
As you can see the L’Oreal Voluminous mascara separates my lashes a lot better than the Maybelline Falsies did in my last mascara review. I don’t have the thickest or longest lashes out there so you may get better results with this. I personally still think that Lash Stilleto by Maybelline is the best mascara I’ve tried, but I am going to keep trying others as well 🙂
The smokey effect when my eyes are closed:
I think this is just the perfect amount of shadow to create a smokey eye. It’s noticeable when I look down or close my eyes but I don’t look like a street-walker lol 😉
My very favorite new lipstick for fall (recommended to me by a friend) is:
“A Different Grape” by Clinique. It is kind of a dark purple-ish color but can look like a deep red depending on what you wear it with.
I always put a shiny gloss over lipstick; my favorite right now is Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush in “Shineberry”
The lip color on:
What are your favorite eye & lip products for fall? 🙂
I am thinking about cutting my hair into a very short pixie cut. I’ve never had my hair anywhere near this short and am nervous! I have already made an appointment for next Wednesday, but am taking a full week to think things out before I do it. The reasoning behind wanting to do it is that my hair is so damaged that I just want to start fresh. I already cut a lot off early in the summer but it seems like it hasn’t helped much so I think I’m gonna go for chopping it all off and starting over! Plus I do think that some people can pull short hair off great, and who knows maybe I am one of those people! And if not, it’ll grow back.
Pictures of the cut I am thinking about:
She looks so great! I’d like to try it just like that (maybe a little longer), and I’d keep it blonde. What do you guys think? Would you ever do it?
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
Maybelline: “Line Stilleto” in blackest black
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.
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 🙂
