Welcome back to my blog ♥
I don’t know about you but I yawned a lot through school so eye products with a long staying power were a must! If not, you would see a girl with panda eyes walking around campus. How embarrassing!
Welcome to part 2 of the MAKEUP PRODUCTS EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT SHOULD OWN series! Today we’re talking about eyes. Typically for eyes, I only wear mascara. But that mascara has to have really good staying power and curling power or else…panda eyes.
Like my past post where I talked about essential face makeup (if you haven’t seen it yet, click here), I’ve included both high end and lower end products to help you discover products in whatever price point you’re at. And don’t forget to check out the weekly ads for drugstores because drugstore brands tend to go on sale!! 🙂
Alrighty, let’s get into the products!
- LOREAL Lash Paradise Waterproof – get it here
With the waterproof version, your mascara aint going nowhere… especially on those days you feel like crying cause the stuff you studied wasn’t on the exam. ..true story.. This mascara keeps the curls, keeping you look put together through all the mess. 🙂 I recently wrote a review on this mascara! Check it out here!! Out of all the drugstore mascaras that I’ve tried in my 23 years of life, this has become my all time favorite!
- Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot- $7.99-get it here
I’m not going to lie, I bought this mascara because of it’s shiny packaging (darn you pretty packaging). I just naturally gravitated to that shiny gold packaging… There was also that ad with MannyMUA in it with the suitcase of mascaras. Raise your hand if you’ve seen it! 🙋 haha! This is a great everyday mascara to quickly swipe on and run to class. It’s also easy to remove so when you come home from a long day, you can quickly remove it and 💤💤💤!
I bought this mascara in the travel size on a whim because I was trying to reach the minimum to get the free gift at Ulta. (It didn’t work out because I guess travel sizes didn’t count. Oops!) But damn.. this mascara makes my eyelashes looking naturally long and full. It lengthens and keeps the curl throughout the day.
psst… I personally love buying the travel size from Benefit Cosmetics because it’s pretty much half the product and half the price of the regular size. What I mean is, you’re not losing any money by buying the smaller one. It works great for me because I am someone who doesn’t wear makeup everyday. I also love to buy and try new makeup products all the time so I don’t waste anything if I buy the smaller size. Does that make sense? I hope so! haha
- Tarte lights, camera, lashes- $23-get it here
I first decided to give this mascara a try when there was a bundle sale at Ulta during Black Friday a few years back. It was my first high end mascara so I was pretty excited. This mascara lengthens and volumizes your lashes. The great thing about it is that it does not clump or flake! The price point is terrible in my opinion but whenever theres a special or sale going on Ulta, I restock restock restock!
psst… While i was looking for the link of this product, I noticed that they had this cool set for $21. (check it out here!) It looks like you get one full size and a travel size for $21 dollars! Thats a great deal! Hopefully it comes back into stock soon.
That is it for my eye makeup essentials. I know it wasn’t much but I haven’t tried any eyeliners or eyeshadows lately! I also didn’t wear those products in school so I wouldn’t be much help anyways.
Recently I have been playing with some eyeshadows and learning how to use them on my monolids! That way, I don’t end up looking like I got punched in the eye. That’s not a cute look…
As always, thank you so so so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to like, comment, and follow me on this adventure (big button is on your right)! I hope you have a beautiful day and don’t forget to shine bright, you’re beautiful. ❤
Shine bright, peace out.✌
