Pur Cosmetics HydraFluid Water Serum Foundation - Swatches and Review

 Today I have a look at a new foundation from Pur Cosmetics called HydraFluid. This is a medium coverage foundation that will hydrate the skin and give a luminous, dewy finish. Since I have dry skin this was quickly a favorite product since my skin really needed the hydration right now. Other foundations have been okay, but this one seems to last longer through the day and doesn't wear off or fade. Find out more info and how it looks on below!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara - Review

When Maybelline comes out with a new mascara, I usually right away buy it because most of the time they end up working out great for me. The original Maybelline Lash Sensational was amazing and made my lashes look fuller, longer, and helped them to stay curled. I was hoping this was going to be an outstanding mascara, but that really wasn't the case. Find out why this mascara didn't work for me below!

Wet N Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel in Stay Classy - Review

Today I have a review of the new Wet N Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel in Stay Classy. I put this mani to the test to see how long the polish would last and if it would be just as good as a gel manicure. Also, would it really be a one step product with no top coat or curing under a lamp? I was kind of surprised at how it worked and I have more info breaking it down day to day below!
