Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara


Y’all. Whoever is creating the mascaras at Maybelline needs a raise. THEY’RE ALL SO GOOD. In the last few months, I’ve started loving Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara.


It’s from the drugstore (duh), so the price is awesome, but that’s not why I love it so much. It adds so much length and volume to each and every lash! 23

As you can see, the brush has tons of bristles at varying lengths, so each of your lashes gets coated with this amazing mascara. The tiny bristles are perfect for getting the product on your eyelashes, and the longer bristles help separate them and create the fan effect.4

I chose the darkest formula, Blackest Black, and I love how rich the color is. I typically apply 2-3 coats, waiting for my mascara to dry between each coat.


According to Maybelline, the “Liquid Ink formula coats from all sides.” First of all, um, what? When is ink not liquid? Secondly, it actually does coat my lashes well! However, you definitely need to be careful to separate them out before the mascara dries so they aren’t clumpy. Unless that’s the look you’re going for, of course.


This mascara also doesn’t flake or smear at all throughout the day, which is so nice. That’s essential for mascara in Texas with our HOT summers looming!


As you can hopefully see, Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is an awesome product because it makes a big impact on your eyes for a very small cost!


If you give it a try, I hope you love it as much as I do! What are your favorite drugstore makeup products? Let me know in the comments!

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Love


Well, that didn’t take long. A few days ago, I wrote about how much I loved Revlon’s New Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor, and the very next day I went out and bought another shade! Oops. I guess that’s proof I really like them though. 🙂 Plus, HEB had them for 40% off! How was I really supposed to pass that up? This time, I bought the shade Love, a bright, summery red, with a hint of orange.


Since this shade was slightly darker than Temptation, I didn’t have any issues with it sinking into the cracks in my lips, which was nice! It’s a little bolder than it looked in the tube, but I’m a fan for sure.


While I felt like Temptation never really set into a matte, this one definitely did. It still transferred, which is a bummer, but blotting may help with that. Love also has a vanilla scent that, thankfully, fades away pretty quickly. While I love vanilla, I’m not a fan of my lip products having a scent.


As you can see above, this lipcolor lasted for quite awhile! The picture on the right was after eating a delicious lunch at Chickfila, too! It definitely stood up very well. I should mention, it’s not kiss-proof though. Every time I smooched Louis, he was left with red lips or a red cheek…(sorry, handsome!)


I think this color would be perfect for summertime because it’s a rich, beautiful red, and it’s bright enough that it would pair great with summer colors. What else is there to say? I love Love! 😉


I’m obviously hooked on these new Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors, and I can’t wait to buy more shades! (And if my track record is any indication, I should have more by tomorrow!;) )

Beauty Blurbs: Japonesque Luminous Foundaiton

Japonesque 1

Hey y’all! Today, I wanted to review the Japonesque Luminous Foundation for you. I purchased this shade quite awhile ago, and it has definitely become one of my favorite foundations.

Japonesque 2

The shade I am wearing here is 02. There are only 10 shades available, so it may be hard for some to find their perfect match. I love how moisturizing it is without making me look greasy. The formula creates a dewey look that has a medium-full coverage.

Japonesque 3

I have some patches of redness on a my cheeks and forehead, and this foundation easily covers them.

Japonesque 4

The Japonesque Luminous Foundation costs around $36, which is definitely more than I typically spend on foundation (WUT UP drugstore cosmetics!?). However, I think the cost is justified for how great the product is.

Japonesque 5

It stays on my combination skin for at least 8 hours, though if you have very oily skin, it may not last as long. I use a finishing powder to help set it as well.

Japonesque 6

If you’re in the market for a new foundation, I definitely recommend giving Japonesque Luminous Foundation a try. Its dewey, luminous finish is sure to please any makeup lover!

Japonesque 7

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂 Talk to you soon!
