Its a great way to show you our personalities, and talk about our favorite thig: makeup! I hope you find this blog useful, if there's anything I can do to make it more helpful to you, or any requests you have for a post, please feel free to let me know. Also, if you like this blog, spread the news about it!

Back to School

I know its only August, but I've heard that some people are going to start getting ready to go back to school soon (I don't go back until September). I figured I'd get a head start on back to school videos so I can do a lot for you guys before school starts up again! I am planning on doing at least one fashion video for back to school (probably two) and a few makeup looks that are good for school. Please let me know if you want to see anything else!

Back to school posts will start later this week! :)

LastBlast vs. LashBlast Length

These two products have a few things in common. They are both CoverGirl and they are both of the LashBlast variety. But they have some very distinct differences.

  1. LashBlast (volume): This mascara is absolutely excellent! It came out last year when the LashBlast line started. I have the color black-brown and its perfect for my skin tone and hair, it defines my eyes, but still looks natural. It has a pretty short stem and a really fat brush. It gives tons of volume to your lashes, which i love! Some of the cons of this product is that it can clump (if applied the wrong way) and it does flake. I find that if you comb through your lashes with an eyebrow brush or a spoolie, there are no clumping problems. $8.99 at most drugstores, www.covergirl.com
  2. LashBlast Length: This mascara is wonderful, in some different ways than the regular one. It is specifically a lengthening mascara, so it makes your lashes look darker and longer. I also think it makes them look fuller, while still looking natural. It has a really long stem and a skinny brush, which can make application a little less precise. It is virtually clump free and flake free, which is a great plus! It is also water resistant (note: that does not mean water proof! This mascara does come off with soap and water, but if you say, have a water fight or something, it won't run all over your face). $8.99 at most drugstores, www.covergirl.com
Overall, I like both of these mascaras for different purposes and reasons. I find myself reaching for the LashBlast Length a little more often just because it is flake free and water resistant, which makes it the better choice for school. I recommend them both and I think they are both amazing products!

Top 5 Favorite Nail Polishes

Have you recently been looking into purchasing more nail polish? This post will help show you the kinds of colors I like to use and maybe you'll find something you like too :)

Sinful Colors: Big Daddy ($1.99, drugstores): I absolutely LOVE this color. Lately, I've really been into oranges on both my fingers and toes. This color is so amazing because its not too bright, but its still a great orange. I especially love it because it looks great with my skin tone. Hey, its also great for summer!!

Sinful Colors: Ruby Red ($1.99, drugstores): This is basically very true to the name. It is a perfect medium red, not too bright, but not too dark.

NYC (New York Color)($1.99, drugstores): Manhattan: This color is a really pretty plum. Its a great deep magenta-ish purple. I think it looks especially nice on toes :)

NYC ($1.99, drugstores): Lincoln Center: This color is not really a plum, its more of a really deep red. Its mysterious and really gorgeous.

Sally Hansen: Double Duty ($4.50, drugstores): This is a base and top coat. Its specifically for strengthening but I find that it gives amazing shine and it makes your manicures and pedicures last for days (not just a few, I'm talking like, 7 days for fingers and up to 2 weeks for toes!)

Quick Review: Jesse's Girl Eye Primer

ok, so i recently picked some of the Jesse's Girl Eye Primer at my local RiteAid ($5.99). I tried it out with my NYX Jumbo Pencil because that is the eye shadow that i own that creases the most in the shortest amount of time. I figured that if the primer could keep from creasing with the jumbo pencil, then it had to be a pretty good product, and at $6, what's there to lose?
After about 2 and a half hours, the first tiny crease popped up (it was really really tiny!) which was extremely impressive. I didn't think that the primer would work that well! Overall, I recommend this product, its a great alternative to the Urban Decay Primer Potion (which is about $18!) and a lot less expensive :)

April Faves!

i know its late, but i figured better late than never :)
(as always, these are in no particular order)

John Frieda FRIZZ EASE Heat Defeat- this spray is awesome! It is light weight but it protects and smoothes my hair when i straighten it. Also, the smell is absolutely amazing!! ($6.50 at drugstores)

CoverGirl Mink Shadow- this eye shadow has been my favorite for a really long time. Its a bronzy/shimmering gold, perfect for summer. Another great use: brush it lightly on the tops of your cheekbones for a perfect summer glow :) (about $5 at drugstores, or www.covergirl.com)

Milani Crystal Lip Gloss- i have the color Secret. its the perfect nude-ish pink color for spring! Plus it smells like vanilla, which is AMAZING!! (about $4.50 at drugstores, or www.milanicosmetics.com)

CoverGirl LashBlast Length- i love this!! i've had the regular LashBlast (volume) for a few months and its my favorite mascara ever. When this new lengthening formula came out, i just had to pick it up. it has a special water resistant formula so it doesn't come off in water (ex. swimming, water fight :), sweat, etc.) but it does easily come off with soap and water (no more raccoon eyes!). (about $8.00 at drugstores, or www.covergirl.com)

ok, i know this post was short, but these are really all my faves for April.
