Fall Favorites: Eyes And Lips

Hi there ūüôā 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”

Image

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 ūüôā

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 ūüėČ

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? ūüôā

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:

Image

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 ūüôā
