Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara Review

Maybelline Volum Express The Colossal Smoky Eyes Fall 2013

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara is the newest Volum’ Express Mascara formula to launch for the Fall 2013 season. I don’t always get on with drugstore mascaras but there have been a few that passed into my beauty world that I do enjoy using and some of the Volum’ Express formulations are fairly ok with me.

I admit at a glance Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Smoky Eyes just seemed, I dunno, repetitive. How many variations do we need of the same formula? But it had me curious especially since smoky mascaras apparently like me…Look at L’Oreal Voluminous Power Volume Black Smoke Mascara, I’d never in a million years think I’d actually like a Voluminous formula but the Black Smoke formula is rather brilliant.

So of course, when I saw this new Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara I decided to give it a whirl.

Wet n Wild In The Spotlight Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley Eyeshadow Palettes

Wet n Wild In The Spotlight Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley Eyeshadow Palettes are available now at drugstores with the new Wet n Wild In The Spotlight Collection. These Color Icon Medley Eyeshadow Palettes are not new though as they were released a few months ago in a mismatch of shades I wasn’t too fond too.

However, these new palettes are a good deal better.

Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Sizzle Gloss Review & Swatches

Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Sizzle Gloss Fall 2013

Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Sizzle Gloss is one of the only new products that popped out of the Covergirl Hunger Games The Coal Mining District 12 Collection I recently came across at the drugstore.

Granted there are some new, limited edition nail polishes but outside of that the entire display was a disappointing arrangement of past product releases. However, the new Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Sizzle Gloss I can’t say I’ve come across before. This past Summer, Covergirl relaunched their Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm with new colors, etc….and yes, they have had glosses like this new Sizzle Gloss in the past but this is new repackaged as to market to a younger demographic.

Take a peek!
