MAKEUP PRODUCTS EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT SHOULD OWN • EYES EDITION // LETIFFANYSHOW ✨

Hello friends 3

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 💤💤💤!

  • Benefit Roller lash- $24- get it here (travel size $12- get it here)

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.

and…

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…

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:

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.✌
