Revlon Desert Spice Super Lustrous Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Revlon Desert Spice Super Lustrous Lipgloss1

Revlon Desert Spice Super Lustrous Lipgloss is one of a few new Super Lustrous shades that launched with the Revlon Sahara Escape Spring 2015 Collection. I could be wrong for many of the shades from this collection might just be permanent at some point as none are labeled as limited edition.

I honestly though Desert Spice and the other three shades introduced with this collection weren’t terribly unique or special enough to warrant a purchase but some may feel that isn’t the case.

Take a look below perhaps you might find Revlon Desert Spice Super Lustrous Lipgloss appealing!

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara Review

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara4

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara ($4.99) is an affordable, budget friendly mascara that recently launched with the Essence Spring/Summer 2015 Makeup Collection. Dontcha just love cheap mascara? It’s a product we often have to throw out before fully using it so paying dirt cheap for it is always the way to go but problem…

I always find I’m never truly satisfied with drugstore mascara.

If you do a a splurge and save post one of the first topics that people will say they don’t splurge on is in fact mascara. However, I’m always of the mentality I want to spend a little more for my formulas because I do find a $20 buck mascara tends to work better for me than one I’d purchased at the drugstore for less. Which leads me on a merry rant about how very, very expensive mascara has gotten at the drugstore. Seriously, if I’m going to pay L’Oreal $11.99 for the latest Voluminous formula I might as well just give my money to some mid-range brand that performs way better!

None the less, sometimes the makeup gods smile down upon our heads and gift us with under $5 buck mascara like Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara!

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer2

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer ($6) is one I can use at the moment after one too many late nights and hey, for $6 bucks maybe it’ll replace my $42 YSL Touche Eclat. Uh yeah, that’s not going to happen but a girl can dream.

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer feels like a rerun in my makeup life as I have this strong sense of deja vu about it. It seems like something Hard Candy released in another life but repackaged?! I’m not sure why I feel that way but yeah…!

Take a look!
