Clump Crusher VS The Colossal Cat Eye

Image

Today, I am going to be reviewing these two mascaras.

I am a huge fan of both brands and was super excited to try these two mascara out. Needless to say, my father thought I was crazy when I purchased two mascaras, but he knows better than to question my makeup purchases.

When I bought them I had already heard so much about both products and already has a perceived notion of each brand. However, my favourite between the two surprised me.

CoverGirl Clump Crusher by Lashblast.

I have always used Covergirl Mascaras, but I have never repurchased any. None have stood out in my mind, until now. I love this mascara, and it’s not just because P!nk is the model for it. It’s really good. It separates your lashes but still add volume. I find with my mascaras you can only get one of those features when you buys them. I really like this mascara and would recommend it to anyone. I always like the wands that Covergirl has. They are rubber. I find the fine tooth brush helps with the separation of the lashes. My only wish is that it make my lashes a little longer. However, that is not the main purpose of this mascara.

I give this mascara a 4/5.

Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express, Cat Eye

I love Maybelline mascara. My favourite one would have to be falsies and when I found this mascara I thought it would be similar to that. The wands of both mascaras are very similar and that may have been why this mascara didn’t impress me as much as the other one. I went in with too high of expectations. However, the mascara is still very good. I found in the beginning the formula was wet. Now the mascara is a little dryer and works easier on the lashes.

I give this mascara a 3.5/5

The two mascaras are very good and it really depends on what you are looking for. It you want thinner lashes with more separation I would choose the Covergirl. If you want something a little bolder I would choose Maybelline. I enjoy using both of them and switch depending on how I want my lashes to look that day.

Have you tried these? Which one do you like better?

Thinner in 10 Seconds!

Let’s talk Bronzer.

I am not a huge fan, I’ve never been able to apply it correctly. But people constantly talk about how much they love it.

I’ve also seem marketing ads that claim it will make you look thinner, and as a women, I can buy into that.

I thought I would share with you some Bronzer I have tried and how to apply to look Thinner in 10 Seconds.

Image

It’s hard to tell but this is the Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sun Dance.

Now, this product may have been the reason I hate bronzing. It has a very orange-y pay off and barley any pay off at all. Not to mention, the amount of glitter.

If you can make this product work for you, heres to ya. But, I just cannot get this to look good on me.

Image

Next, we have e.l.f Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder. 

This bronzer is very pigmented, like with many e.l.f products. I, however, did not have the softest hand when first using it and had to go back many time to fix it. I ended up not using it for a while and swearing off bronzing for a while. I have recently come back to it and need to warn anyone wanting to try this that A) it is a dark bronzer and B) very pigmented.

For the price it is very good.

I recently purchased NYC Sun 2 Sun Bronzing Powder in Bronze Gold

I really love this. Despite the bad packaging (same as Rimmels), I really like that there are two products in here. You can use it three ways, use either colour or mix them together. I also like that you have a matte and a shimmer so again you can mix if you want shimmer or not.

As you can see I have not puchaces a high end bronzer, this is because I don’t see the need for one until I become comfertable with brozning.

How to Look Thinner!

I use the 3 rule.

1.) the temple

2.) the cheek bone

3.) the jawline

These are the three areas that you want to Bronze to make yourself look thinner. I apply in a circular motion to not have any harsh lines that make bronzer look fake or overused.

You can also add a little bronzer to the nose and chin for a glowing look.

Anywhere the sun will naturally hit your face.

Hope this helps.

My Little Haul #1

Hey Guys!

Today, I went shopping. I thought I would share a few of the items I bought.

Image

First, I went to Sephora. This amazing lady there showed me how to contour. However, I didn’t buy my bronzer from there. I got myself a beauty blender and with my beauty rewards I recieved an Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara.

                                ImageImage

Lastly, I went to Walmart. I picked up a few things I really wanted to try.

I went for Essie’s Ballet Slippers.

Image

But, when I also saw they had Maybelline’s Clear Gel Mascara for Brows

Image

Then….I decided after my talk with that women at Sephora I thought I’d grab a bronzer. I heard about this NYC Sun 2 Sun Bronzing Powder.

Image

I also picked up a brush by SPAresoure. I grabbed this blending brush.

I hope you guys enjoy. Thanks .

Hot Pink Nails!

It’s starting to get hot out so I couldn’t resist painting my nails the brightest colour I could find.

The Camera does not do it justice (Does it ever?)

This beautiful colour by China Glaze is a matte finish. I put a clear top coat over it to make it glosy.

The colour is Pool Party, what a perfect name.

If you are looking for NEON nail polish I love this one. I was super excited to pull it out after Winter.

What are your favourite nail polishes for Spring/Summer?

Spring/Summer Trends of 2013

Hello Beautiful Ladies,

I live in Canada, so the fact that Spring and Summer might actually be arriving is so exciting. I thought I would share some of my thoughts on the upcoming trends.

Strips

Not just any kinds of strips, but sexy strips. I’ve always been a fan of stripes but they must be worn properly or else they can make you look bigger than you want to. If you are larger try wearing vertical stripes rather than horizontal, or wear stripes that accentuate your curves. For example, the dress below, the strips face in towards the waist making you look smaller.

Sheen

I’m not sure how I feel about the trend. I feel as though it could work or it could look awful. It might be one of those things we look back on and go “what was I thinking.” I do however feel that it can be played down and add some dimension to an outfit. I really like the outfit below because this shirt from American Eagle isn’t too crazy, but it has a cool effect.

Graphic Prints

This trend is bold. It might not work for everyone. I believe that it all depends on how you play it up. You can go all out and have a dress that is a full print. However, if that is too much for you just wear a shirt with the print and play it down with a solid colour short and cardigan. I love this look from Forever 21.

Whites

I love whites, expceailly as a lace dress. I just think it looks so innocent and cute. I also love that you can really play up your accessories when you have a simple colour. Maybe add a statement necklace. This dress from PacSun is exactly the kind of white I love to wear. Also, I think a great pair of white shorts or capires would look create with a graphic print shirt.

Fluorescent

I am all in when it comes to bright colours. I think summer is the perfect time to wear the brightest thing in your closet and that is why I am so excited about this trend. Again, this is one that some people might be afraid of, but if you do it right you will find that you can work this trend as well. I love this high-low (another trend) dress from Forever 21.

60s Style

We all know how styles come and go, and them come back again. Well this summer is no exception. The 60’s and 90’s are coming back. I however am more fond of the 60’s style. We have already seen this trend coming back with the Peter Pan collar (ask any of my friends, I am addicted.) Forever 21 and H&M have some great choices for this trend, but I found like lovely number at TopShop.

There are many trends that are going to be happening the summer, as reoccurring as well. I find that different people like different trends, but  I don’t want you to be afraid to try something. If you think something in fun, try it.

If you don’t want to spend too much money on a trend, hit up a thrift shop and see what you can find there.

Just have fun with your fashion.

Let me know in the comments below some trends you are looking forward to.

Let’s Talk Target!

Image

 

Recently, Target opened up in Canada. SInce then, there have been many different types of  feedback. I for one LOVE it. While everyone else I have talked to has been disapointed.

If you haven’t been to a Target yet, I thought I would let you know what to expect.

The Prices aren’t Low

I know, you expect that you’ll walk in and love the prices. Not true. First off, the prices in Canada are higher than the prices in the USA. It’s just the way things unfortunately work. If you are used to shopping at the Target in the States, be prepared for this.

We have New Products

That doesn’t mean we have ALL the american products. However, we do have quite a few new products not seen before.  This was one of my favourite parts, partcuatly, the make wipes by Targets personal brand (up & up).

I Feel like I am on Vacation

This may be a personal thing. But, whenever I walk into Target I feel like I am in Orlando. I love to shop at Target when I am in the States. This is one of my favourite things.

Let me know what you love about Target.
