Milani Sparkling Mascara Top Coat Review & Swatches

Milani Sparkling Mascara Top Coat

Milani Sparkling Mascara Top Coat ($4.99) is a new glittery topcoat accent to add a bit of sparkle and shimmer to lashes for the Holidays! These limited addition top coats remind me of the days I was absolutely obsessed with glittery lashes! Does anyone remember Bare Escentuals Beautifully Luminous Lashes? Or how about Givenchy Lash Sparkles? I’m taking it way back! Heck I even used to use Urban Decay Heavy Metal Eyeliners on my lashes! Simply stroke it through and it would encrust my lashes with little bits of glittery joy!

But the good thing is Milani Sparkling Mascara Top Coat won’t set you back as much as those old favorites….! This budget pick is a must have for the Holidays!

Milani Bronze Beauty Color Statement Lipstick Review & Swatches

Milani Bronze Beauty Statement Lipstick

There’s just something about Fall lip colors isn’t there? Milani Bronze Beauty Color Statement Lipstick ($5.49) was added to my Fall lipstick wardrobe recently and I must say I adore the shade.

I love, love, love a good Fall lip color. The best thing about Fall is you can take all the shades out that look incredible in the Summer on your lips and use them for autumn looks. I favor bronze-y, peachy shades in the Summer and these all work well into the Fall season as well.

Milani Bronze Beauty Color Statement Lipstick is a stunning metallic bronze-y copper that looks like liquid metal on lips (and it’ll be ideal for your tanned Summer looks too, even though Summer is far away).

Jane Cosmetics Water-Resistant Eyeliner Review & Swatches

Jane Cosmetics Water Resistant Eyeliner 2

Jane Cosmetics Water-Resistant Eyeliner ($6) is a new pigmented, water resistant retractable eyeliner available in 20 shades that’s available exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.

When you’re looking at drugstore eyeliners I’d say this is one of the more extensive shade selections you’ll get in a cream eyeliner especially with vibrant shades like Lime Green, Aqua, etc….I think drugstore liners tend to navigate to more traditional shades so it is surprising to see a variety of shades for under six dollars!

Take a look!

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Rose Brightening Facial Paper Mask Review

Freeman Rose Brightening Facial Paper Mask

Freeman has a new collection of Feeling Beautiful Facial Paper Masks available one of which I tried a few weeks ago in the the Beautiful Rose Brightening formula.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Rose Brightening Facial Paper Mask ($1.99) contains rose extract and a brightening Vitamin C that aids dull skin to look brighter. It also includes Lactic and Glycolic alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate and reveal smoother skin with White Tea and Licorice antioxidants help reduce age spots for more even-toned skin.

Considering I have drier skin this sounded like the perfect mask for me!
