Maybelline Volum’ Express the Mega Plush Mascara Review

Maybelline Volum’ Express has extended their line to include the new Mega Plush formula for Summer 2012. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Mega Plush Mascara has a flexible brush and a gel-mousse formula that supposedly adds super volume to lashes.

I liked the idea of a flexible brush as you get that added wriggle action in for plucking lashes up and out but after using it I’m thinking I’d have preferred to do without as I feel like I loss a little control over application.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Peach Me Review & Swatches

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Peach Me 001

Revlon has a special display that I noticed at the Evil Empire Walmart recently of Super Lustrous Lipstick.

I’m not sure if the display will pop up elsewhere but I must say I really liked that they took a display and stuck a buncha old shades in it simply because I’ve never really paid much attention to the lipstick before and I liked that they highlighted best selling colors.

I own one or two Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks already but like Maybelline Color Sensational I feel like it’s an overrated lipstick with only one redeeming factor, the gorgeous shade selection.

Peach Me happened to be in that special display unit and even though I’m not terribly into the formula I really liked the shade.

Covergirl Eye Enhancers Palette Summer 2012

Covergirl Eye Enhancers Summer 2012 1

For Summer 2012 Covergirl Eye Enhancers get a revamp. Yes, that is Taylor Swift in the promo image on the display!

Crazy right? Doesn’t even look like her!

These new Eye Enhancer Palettes have four shades of complimentary shades for a variety of eye colors. I know I’ve mentioned it before but I’m not really a lover of palettes that claim to contain shades suitable for my eye color, I’d rather pick and choose the shades I enjoy using not ones that a brand picks for me meh!

I think the original Eye Enhancer Palettes weren’t all that fabulous but of course, that’s just from looks alone on my part as I didn’t actually try them.

Did you use the old palettes?

Loved?

Left?

Do share.

Here’s a look at the new ones.
