NEXT DESTINATION: LASH PARADISE // LETIFFANYSHOW

hello-there-e1502696898600.jpgWelcome back to my blog 

I don’t know what it is about mascara packaging but they always claim extraordinary things. The before and after pictures make it look like your eyelashes will go from:

↑↑↑I’d love it if my eyelashes ended up like that! ↑↑↑

Recently, I’ve seen reviews for the L’OREAL Voluminous Lash Paradise around YouTube and the interwebs. After seeing their results, I knew I had to try it out myself. But the struggle was real! This mascara was sold out at every Target/ulta near me but I finally found it at a random Target in Henderson, NV.

FINALLY.

They only had the waterproof version so today, I will be reviewing the L’OREAL Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara! You can get it for about $8.99 to $9.99 depending where you purchase it. I got mine for $8.99 at Target!

Look at this pretty pink packaging! Love it!

The waterproof version comes in two shades:

  • Black
  • Blackest black

L’oreal describes this mascara as voluptuous volume, intense length, full lash fringe, and feathery soft.  There are 200+ bristles to catch every lash for a dramatic volumizing effect. There is also no flaking, no smudging, and no clumping.

This mascara comes in black and blackest black! Buy it here!

A LITTLE BIO ABOUT MY LASHES

I have pretty stubborn lashes that don’t want to keep curled. They’ll curl and then a few hours later, back to no curl. They’re also very short so without mascara, you can’t even tell I have eyelashes!

HOW I USE IT

I curl my eyelashes using my Muji eyelash curler. Then I apply one coat of mascara onto my lashes! I start from the base of my eyelashes and work my way up in a zigzag motion. (I hope that makes sense). I add a few more coats until I am satisfied about how my eyelashes look.

FIRST IMPRESSION

I am using the color blackest black. This is a wet formula. But for me, the wet formula makes it so much easier to apply to my lashes. It dries fairly quick – quicker than most of my mascaras. When I blinked, the mascara didn’t transfer onto my undereyes.

YIKES! Welcome to my face! Here’s a close up of how the mascara looks on my eyelashes.

Smell: yes–floraly smell. I’m not a very big fan of the smell. I don’t understand why they put scents on things that go on your eye.

Length (✓): DAMN. SON. There was definitely a change in length.

Volume (✓): I loved the volume it gave my lashes!

Feathery Soft (✓): It is very lightweight and stays on all day.

No flaking (✓)

No smudging (✓): I yawn a lot throughout the day and my eyes get watery. Mascaras usually start smudging and then I get these dark smudges under my eyes. This mascara didn’t do that! I yawned all I wanted and nothing. YAY.

No clumping (✓): It did not clump like some of my other mascaras. Easy application and no mess!

After long hours of wearing this mascara, my eyelashes were still curled and in place. Removal is kind of a pain but it is waterproof. Just use some eye makeup remover and you should be fine!

This is definitely a drugstore mascara worth trying. Have you gotten your hands on this mascara? Let me know what you think!

and…leave a comment below of… your favorite mascara!

As always, thank you so so much for stopping by! Like, comment, stay around if you’d like! Subscribe to my blog and I’ll see you guys next week!

Shine bright, peace out.✌

NEW FAVORITE LIGHTWEIGHT SUMMER FOUNDATION // LETIFFANYSHOW

IMG_8632

I’m not going to lie, I suck at matching foundation colors to my skin. And when I was at Sephora staring at these bottles of foundations, they all looked the same to me. Light sand? Medium sand? …Help…?

HELLO FRIENDS

Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m doing a review of the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation! This foundation retails for $39 and it claims to be a lightweight, full coverage, hydrating foundation with a SPF 15. It comes in 21 shades- I am in the shade  light-medium sand. (You know, I always wondered how they came up with these foundation names.. )Thinking Face on Apple iOS 10.3The Sephora website also says that this product is hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. Lastly, the bottle is made of glass and contains 1 fl. oz of product.

Let’s start off with the box it comes in. I LOVE PRETTY PACKAGING like if you put a shitty product in pretty packaging, I might actually buy it. The applicator itself is a dropper. I’m not crazy about the dropper because I’m not sure what to do with it. The website says to directly dispense the foundation onto a foundation brush, but I prefer to drop it onto the back of my hand first and then dab it onto my skin. I tend to waste product when I directly put it on a brush or sponge.

This foundation has a floraly sunscreen kind of smell but it’s not terrible. It’s not noticeable after it’s been applied to the skin. With a primer (the primer I used was the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer), it went on my face super smoothly and stayed on throughout the day.

This foundation has a runny, watery consistency cause ya know, “water foundation”. It applies well on my skin with either my Real Techniques foundation brush or my Clarisonic foundation brush. I prefer applying it with the Clarisonic foundation brush. That brush just blends everything.

I tried making a video showing you how I like to apply the foundation! LOL my first “beauty” video ever! Check it out!

I found that a lot goes a long way, so I like to start with a drop of foundation and build up from there. When I first started using this foundation, I think I used wayyy too much and it started to look cakey. I learned that one drop from the dropper is enough and then I could always add more to where there are imperfections. I don’t find it full coverage but I think it’s buildable.  I enjoyed how lightweight it is because I’m all about that “no makeup makeup look”. This foundation would be ideal for those hotter summer days 🌞and maybe even humid weather.

I’ve been loving this product and it has been my go-to for these warmer days. The dropper is eh but it makes me feel like I’m in a lab or something. HEHE but that is pretty much it!

Have you tried this foundation? What did you think of it? Let me know what you think! Make sure to like, comment, ask questions… er look around my blog if you’d like..laugh at my posts heheh OKAY SEE YOU NEXT TIME ❤

Shine bright, peace out.✌

Whats in my travel makeup bag?

IMG_7057

Hello friends 🙂

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I got really busy with school work and kept putting it off but here i am! …a year-ish later…

I am on winter break at the moment and most of my makeup is back at school. So today, I thought I would show you what is in my travel make up bag.

Lets dig right in! *Wheeeeee*

Starting with mah face, I have my moisturizer, primer, foundation, under eye concealer, powder, bronzer and blush. The moisturizer I use is the Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 15. I love this moisturizer because it has that SPF I need to protect me from le sun. Next, my primer, foundation (in the shade Medium Beige) and under eye concealer (in Neutralizer) are from Maybelline. The bronzer and powder are both from Rimmel London and they work really well for my skin. The powder gives me a matte finish and the bronzer gives me that subtle glow I like. Finally, my blush/highlighter is from Physicians Formula. I don’t always use this but when I want that extra sparkle, I slap it on using my powder brush and BAM. Sparklezzzz 😀

I am very simple when it comes to eyes. All I really use is mascara, brow gel and sometimes eyeliner. (It’s because I tend to rub my eyes and end up with Panda eyes…ewwww…) My two favorite mascaras at the moment are the L’oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara (in blackest black) and the Lash Stiletto from Maybelline (in VERY black). My go to liquid eyeliner is from MAC and was a gift from my best friend. ❤ It’s called the Rapidblack Penultimate Eye Liner…what a fancy name! This eyeliner is alright… it kind of dried out quickly and the line isn’t as dark anymore. Finally, the eyebrow gel is the Brow drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in deep brown. It’s the only thing I need to keep my eyebrows in place and on fleek. Well, I like to think my brows are on fleek. Lolz they’re probably not. Okay moving on.

Finally, these are the tools I bring with me. My favorite thing to use to slap my foundation on is that orange sponge you see over there. It’s the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion SpongeGirl, let me tell you.. This sponge is …a MIRACLE! Put away that foundation brush and try this orange sponge because it gives you a nice dewey look and trust. me. you will never look back! Did I mention it’s very affordable @ $6.99!? Ulta always has sales and right now they are buy 1 get 1 FREEEEEE! Ok moving on to my face brushes. From left to right, Eco Tools Bamboo Powder Brush, Real Techniques Powder brush and Eco Tools Bamboo Bronzer BrushThese brushes get the job done. The brushes are really really soft (especially the Real Technique brushes) and I highly recommend them and you are in the market for affordable makeup brushes. Again, these brushes are  buy 1 get 1 FREEEEEE at Ulta! 🙂

And that is what’s in my travel make up bag. Let me know what your travel essentials are!!  If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment!

Hope you have a beautiful and wonderful week!

Favorite 14 things of 2014

It’s finally 2015! Whew, that’s gonna take a while to get used to..In 2014, I started to wear more makeup and experiment with more products. Today, I’m going to show you 14 things I really loved in 2014 and hopefully, you can try them out in 2015! 😀 Alright, lets dig in.

(For the prices, I put -ish after the prices because prices may vary within each store!)

IMG_0978

1. Physicians Formula Super CC+ Color-correction + Care CC+ Powder SPF 30 ($13.99): I used this as a powder to set my foundation. To me, it worked…like a powder (haha). I didn’t really see any color correcting effects but it could be because the foundation already covered up any blemishes or pigmentation.

2. Olay Regenerist micro-sculping cream moisturizer (about $28.99): I may still be young, but I really love this moisturizer. I was home for break and I had run out of my moisturizer so my mom let me borrow hers. This moisturizer made my skin feel tighter in a good way. I like to joke around and ask my mom if I look 30 years younger. haha but this is one of the things I will repurchase.

3. NYX Matte Bronzer ($8.99) in medium: I have been using this since 2013. Err..maybe I should have switched it out by now but I just really love this product. A little goes a long way so you only have to dab your brush in for a little. I love all matte things because I feel like shimmer is too much for everyday wear.

4. Ecotools brushes ($10.49-$11.99): I decided to put these two brushes into one category because I frequently use them together. The first one is the Bamboo Powder Brush ($10.49). The bristles are really soft and it applies my powder pretty well. The other is the Bamboo bronzer brush ($11.99). This brush is the perfect size for my face when it is used to apply bronzer. Like the powder brush, the bristles are soft and easily blends in the bronzer into the rest of my face makeup.

5. Revlon Colorstay Makeup for combination/oily skin ($12.99-ish): This foundation is a favorite among many YouTubers I’ve watched over the past years. It was about time for a new foundation, so I decided to pick this one up. I love it. It makes my face look so nice and it really stays on all day. By the way, this is a full coverage foundation.

6. Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation ($9.99-ish): I reach for this foundation a lot too. It is lightweight on the skin and when you apply it, it has a powder finish. It makes my skin feel soft. In my opinion, it is a medium coverage foundation and it blends it quite well. It has a strange applicator, but I use my hands to put on foundation anyways.

IMG_0979

7. Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color in Touch of Spice 660 ($7.99-ish): I love how matte lip colors look but not on me. However, I decided to try out this line of matte lipsticks and I fell in love. It is moisturizing and has nice pigmentation to it.  

8. Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color in Plum Perfect 435 ($7.49-ish): When fall came around, I wanted to try going for a darker lip color. I was searching around for a dark red…maybe a little hint of purple. I looked through several makeup stands and found this one. It is moisturizing and has no taste to it. It is very pigmented too.

9. Nyx Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Tea Rose ($4.99-ish): This lip gloss was a spontaneous buy. I’m not much of a lip gloss gal but I wanted to try one out. And boy boy boy, I am glad I tried it. This lip gloss is not sticky which means, my hair won’t get stuck onto  my lips! (yay!) It is moisturizing and has great pigmentation to it. Plus, it’s also very affordable.

10. C.O Bigelow Lavender Salve ($___?): This Lavender Salve can be used on the lips, face, cuticles, elbows and knees. I used it mostly on my lips. My lips are often chapped and chapped lips are a no no. I always put some on before I begin to put on my makeup so my lips are moisturized when I want to put on lipstick. I got this a while back at Bath and Body Works. I’m not sure if this was a limited edition product but I couldn’t find it on the internet. However, they still make the Rose Salve ($5.50).

IMG_0977

11. Maybelline Rocket Volume Express Waterproof Mascara ($7.49): This is one of my favorite mascaras of all time. It really holds the curl and doesn’t clump. It has a slight scent to it. The only problem with this mascara is that it is really hard to remove. I have to rub my eyes with make up remover in order to remove it. Even with that, I still see mascara smudged on my under eye area.

12. Maybelline The Nudes Palette ($9.99): I don’t usually wear eyeshadow but I like to experiment with them. I have heard great things about this palette and I had to get my hands on it. The colors are really pigmented but great for everyday wear! It would look great on all skin tones!

13. Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($20.00): I never really used a eyeshadow primer because it was quite expensive. But one day, I decided to give in and pick up a tube. The primer helped enhance the colors of the eyeshadows and helped them stay on longer. At the end of the day, my eyeshadow would still be on my eye and not anywhere else!

14. Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner ($9.99-ish): I love this eyeliner!  It glides on smoothly especially with the brush that it comes with. It doesn’t fade out throughout the day… it kind of just stays there. The downside about this eyeliner is that the eyeliner itself dries out pretty quickly. I haven’t had it for very long but it seems to be a bit dry.

Welp, those are my 14 favorite products of 2014! I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you ever try these out! Hope you had a wonderful New Years day!

Thank you for reading this blog post,
