Recent Beauty Haul

Happy first day of summer loves!!

I don’t know how the weather is over where you guys are but, it’s only 11am here in LA and already the sun is blaring down at us!

To kick off the summer spirit, I’ve got 2 honorable mentions of my beauty purchases that I’ve been loving lately!

I’ve been on the hunt for L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara and had the hardest time finding it. I went to Target and found out they sold out within the second day! Then went to Ulta and it still wasn’t delivered to them so last idea I had was to order it online. I did find it online on Amazon but it shouldn’t ship until another 2 weeks!

I plan to try it out for a few weeks and will post a review on my blog, so I won’t talk more about this till then!

As I was at Ulta looking for my mascara, I came across the Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar. I feel like this is a great dupe for the Lush Coalface for half the price. It’s even got a peppermint scent to it. So it feels great after a long day while your face is feeling refreshed.

Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara

Hey Lovies!

Influenster and Rimmel were kind enough to send me a complimentary Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara that was in my Rose VoxBox. This comes into stores November 2013!

Here are a few pictures showing how the wand but the photos don’t do it justice at all! lol

It’s an hourglass shaped wand where the middle is thinner.

I  only have two cons I have with this is that

1. when you take out the wand, there’s so much excess mascara.

2. It’s really hard to apply the mascara on the bottom lashes.  I feel like the wand is really big that I might poke my eye with it especially if you have long bottom  lashes.

Grrr.

But other than that, I love it! It gives an illusion that your eyes have a wide look (which is great for me since I have small eyes). *Forgive my blah eyebrows*

As you can tell, there’s quite a difference when I’m not wearing the mascara and when I am.

*TIPS*

-Tightline your eyes before you apply the mascara

-Use an eyelash curler before you apply the mascara

-If you can find it, buy an eyelash guard where you can place it on your eye as you apply the mascara so you don’t get any excess on your lids.

I wanted to try a makeup look with the mascara so I tried this out!

It’s the WetnWild 2013 Holiday Limited Edition “No Neutral Ground”.
