Date Night Outfit

Hey everyone 🙂 Sorry that it has been awhile, I have been so busy! First of all, a hair update: I chickened out on the hair cut lol. My cousin is getting married in October and I’m going to see a lot of family and I think everyone would just make a big scene if I do it now so I’m going to wait. Plus the fact that I cried about it for days was a good sign that I just wasn’t ready lol. Anyways, here is an outfit I wore out with my boyfriend on Sunday night:

Image

Dress: Forever 21, around $30; Clutch: Bealls, $15. I had been eyeing this dress for awhile on the Forever21 website (it was a top-rated item) but by the time I went to buy it they were all out of my size…grrrrr 😦 So I went to the mall and thankfully they had just one left 🙂

I also wore some leopard print tights from Target, $10. It’s not actually cold enough to need these here but I think they are so cute!

A thin headband with little rhinestones from Forever21, $5.50

Bracelet: Guess, $28

And some red pumps from DSW Shoes; $60

The dress really clings to all your curves, especially if you have a big butt lol 😉

On my nails is “Scarlett O’Hara” & “Good As Gold” by Essie. Sometimes I like to paint random nails different colors and I did each hand different this time. These are great fall colors…and they are also close to the colors of the college I went to…Go ‘Noles 🙂

I am planning on posting a make up review within the next couple days & I will share the dress I got for my cousin’s wedding so stay tuned for that 🙂

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 🙂
