Maybelline NY : Great Lash ( Lots Of Lashes)

Note: I am super sorry that this post didn't post on Wednesday as it should have, I set the queue up wrong and none of my scheduled posts, posted. 

Today I'm reviewing Maybelline NY :Great Lash ( Lots Of Lashes Washable) in Brownish Black. 
This was the first piece of makeup that I bought a few years ago and it has been one of my favorite mascara's ever since. I actually repurchased this a while  ago and I'm almost done with it. 

I know alot of people didn't like the first Great Lash but this is a newer version. This is the " Lots Of Lashes " one and I don't think they changed their formula but they changed their brush and apparently, that made a huge difference.

This brush is a heart shaped or tear drop shaped brush. I actually broke off some of the bristles by rubbing too hard so some of the bristles on mine are missing. For the most part, this brush really works, I use the smaller part of the brush to cover my inner lashes.

The packaging basically came like this, except the brush was pink but now it's covered with mascara. There was also a green cap on the mascara tube.

*These are my lashes with mascara on* 

I love this product and I give it 4 hearts out of 5.


What's your opinion on these Great Lash products?

Baby Lips : Cherry Me Review

I'm reviewing Baby Lips : Cherry Me by Maybelline NY. This lip tint came out a pretty long time ago but I absolutely love this product and I want to share it with you!

So basically, this is my second tube of Cherry Me, I repurchased  this 2 weeks ago and as you can see, I've used up quite a bit of it.

Cherry Me is a tinted lip balm that claims to moisture and change your lips in 4 weeks. I really love this color, it's not as red as it appears unless you apply like 3 coats of it. Baby Lips also has 20 SPF. It smells like cherries and it comes in really cute packaging. I love the font they used!
Cherry Me is sold at most drugstores for $4 and they have a good selection of different flavors as well. Click here for more info! 

What do you guys think about Baby Lips? is it something you would use?

New York Color : Custom Compact : Brown Eyes

Today is the first of 7 beauty reviews that I will be doing for this week! Let's get started!

Today I'm reviewing the New York Color Custom Compact for Brown Eyes. I found it at Walmart for $4.99 so it's a good deal. This compact comes with 4 colors ( 1 highlight, 1 lid and 2 creases.) a primer,a illuminator and a 2 ended sponge brush.

I know my case is a little bit messy but I've been using it for a while now, so it is used.

These are the colors in this compact, my favorite is the dark bronzy crease color. I find it so pretty. The primer in this compact is pretty good but I've never used the illuminator in this.

( swatches without primer) 

I took some swatches on a tissue so you could see the colors more clearly. My skin color throws some of the colors off. The highlight color is more of a beige skin color while the lid color is a very neutral brown.

( close up on the 2 sided sponge brush.)

  • the eyeshadows are pigmented enough that you don't need primer
  • you get 4 shades, a primer and a illumintor for a low price
  • portable
  • one of the best affordable neutral palettes.
  • There are none. 

Leave a comment or your opinion below on this product!

It's Been A While..

I know. I know guys. And I'm sorry about it. It's been about 2 weeks since I last posted. No, I wasn't dead, no, I wasn't super loaded with homework. I have had a few tests but other than that, it's been pretty calm. I've been lazy and I admit it. Sorry. :( Anyways, on to happier subjects, I will be posting everyday of this week but I have some news first.

Originally when I first started this blog, it was supposed to be a beauty blog. Not a lifestyle blog or a DIY blog. I got side tracked but now that I've experienced a little bit of this DIY side, I really like it. I've decided that this blog will be about DIY projects and beauty topics! So, starting this week, I will be posting a review on a beauty product. :)

Here's a little sneak preview. ;)

Thanks for all the support by the way. I didn't expect to get 4000 views in 5 months. I didn't expect to get 24 followers on GFC or to get 6 followers on Bloglovin. Those aren't big numbers but they mean a lot to me. Thank you. ♥

November Already?

Hi lovelies! It's been more than a week since I lasted posted and I have had absolutely no time to write because of Halloween and some very special things I have been planning out.

I can't believe that it's already November! I don't think any of you know this but November is actually my birth month. My birthday is this week and so I won't be posting as much but expect something!

Next, I have finally made a YouTube channel. I'm so excited for you guys to see this. It currently has 2 videos up and the channel is about beauty and some vlogs and stuff so if you are really interested  email me and I will send my channel link to you! If not, I'll be writing another post about this later so you can probably wait until then?

And now for some November inspiration!

I'm thinking about doing this, what do you guys think?

And now I am going to procrastinate.
