L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara - Photos and Review

Today I have a review of the new L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara in Blackest Black. I don't use L'Oreal mascara that often, so I wanted to see how this one was going to be. It claims to lift the outer corner lashes to give a winged-out effect and instantly volumize the lashes. Find out how it worked for me below!

Popsugar Must Have Box - October 2013

Today I have a post about the newest Popsugar Must Have Box for the month of October. I received mine a bit late this month, but I decided to post on it anyways. If you don't know, this is a subscription box much like Birchbox, Glossybox, etc. Now, this box is $35 a month which sounds like a lot, but every box comes with free shipping and full-size products. There is hand selected items in beauty, fashion, fitness, and food. Find out what was inside below!

Maybelline Color Elixir by Color Sensational Lip Color in Amethyst Potion - Review

Lip products are my most purchased makeup product, so it's no surprise when I saw these I just had to buy one to try out. I found an almost full display at CVS recently and I ended up with the shade Amethyst Potion. I knew this color would be great for Fall, but I was really curious about how the formula was going to be. Find out more and see photos below!

Covergirl Flamed Out Curling Mascara - Review

Finding out that this new Covergirl mascara was a curling mascara, I thought this is it. This is going to be my HG mascara of all time. My lashes are so stick straight that if I can get them to keep curl all day long with a mascara, it will be a true miracle. I found this one on the new Covergirl Hunger Games Collection display. Find out more below!

Sample Saturday - Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara

I have been using a sample of Benefit They're Real! mascara and I now understand why people are loving this mascara. I received this sample in a Sephora order a while ago and I have kept this in my makeup bag since I got it. I used it for weeks straight, then I needed to try out other mascaras so I stopped. Now I went back to it and can see why I always reach for it. Find out more below!

Wet N Wild Fergie Heavy Metal Centerstage Nail Collection (3 Shades) - Swatches

I found this new display of Wet N Wild Fergie nail polishes at Rite-Aid recently, so I picked up 3 shades. These are from the new holiday collection which has 7 shades available. I have bought other Wet N Wild Fergie polishes in the past and they were pretty good quality. They are quite opaque and last through the week with minimal chipping. This post is just to show you swatches of these on a nail wheel. See below!

L'Oreal Color Riche La Laque Shiny Full Coverage Lipcolour in Never Lacque-ing - Swatch and Review

Today I have a review of one of the newest lip products from L'Oreal. I found these (along with the matte ones) at Target weeks ago and I have been trying them both out. I was really excited to see how well I would enjoy each formula and which one I would end up using more. The La Laque was the one I seemed to reach for the most, but the color was a bit off for me. Find out more of my thoughts below.

NOTD: Covergirl Seared Bronze

Covergirl has launched a new Hunger Games Catching Fire collection. It has new products like mascara, Glosstini nail polishes, lipsticks, and glosses. I found one of the displays recently at Walgreens and I bought a few items.

I ended up getting this new Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstini in Seared Bronze. It was quite sheer, but I used two coats and it was just enough to cover. I not sure how I like this color yet, but I do like how different it is. I don't own anything like this shade.

New Drugstore Makeup Display Sightings - Sinful Colors, Covergirl, etc.

When I see new makeup displays at the drugstore, I will usually take pics and post them on my Instagram. But, I thought it would also be somewhat useful to post them on here as well. Let me know if these kind of posts are something you like so that I can try and post them more often. Lately I've seen a few new displays and I want to share what they are and where I saw them. The Sinful Colors one above was seen at Walgreens. See a few more displays below!
