Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder ($1.99) has proven completely out of my reach. I have an Ulta located about, mmmm, an hour away from me? If you’re from New York you probably know the one I mean. The only way I get there is when I head to Woodbury because it’s just too much of a bother just to go there to hit up Ulta.
Ulta carries Essence but anytime I go there I never find cool products like the Voluminizing Lash Powder.
One of the best parts about blogging beauty is you meet and become friends with so many fantastic people. This review wouldn’t be possible without my fellow geeky gamer Cult of Taupe. She gifted me with this recently, completely unexpectedly.
Let’s take a peek at this!
I’m quite eager to get to the review.
I’m guilty, I admit it, I wrote off Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Creams ($21) when they launched.
I’m just not a fan of cream lipstick. I find most creams drying and the longer you wear them the more moisture they suck from your lips. When there isn’t anymore moisture to suck out they go for your soul! It’s deadly.
No..but seriously. I also get lip crumbs from cream lipstick. Lip crumbs are those little flaky gross pieces of lipstick that float around your dry mouth. It’s not pretty people.
Too Faced La Creme Lipstick changed how I feel about creams. They’ve managed to create a moisturizing cream formula that looks and feels incredible on lips.
How’d they do dat?
Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover is my HG (holy grail) eye makeup remover of the moment. Actually the search for my HG eye makeup remover might be over!
I’m cheap. Not really but when it comes to makeup remover I am terribly cheap. I think nothing at all of splurging $50 on a blush but tell me to spend $27 on 4.2 oz of makeup remover and I start to sob like a baby, “Mommy it hurts so BAD!”
I think I have this mentality that I can buy a new eyeshadow palette or a lipstick and maybe a gloss with that near $30 price tag. Ouch!!!!!!!!!!
I typically buy Sephora’s Eye Makeup Remover which I like for $9.50 but look out Sephora, Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover is on the case.
Lorac Pro Cream Eyeliner is the new love of my makeup loving life.
As rather big fan of Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner I feel every so slightly guilty of cheating on Bobbi but facts if facts, Lorac, you have the better formula.
Being as goofy as I am with liquid liner I do find gel eyeliner considerably easier to work with. But as you probably noticed in many of my posts I leave off eyeliner from many of my looks. Reason? I feel a little over done lining my upper lash line…!
Anyone have that feeling? I just can’t work the look. So when I do use gel eyeliner I tend to go with a VERY, very nude eye look but today I got a little daring. I was testing out Gleaming Bronze so I paired it up with a little Lorac Pro Cream Eyeliner and yes, it pops but it might be too much. You’ve been warned.
I’m wearing L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Gleaming Bronze today. It was part of the L’Oreal Summer 2012 Collection and could or couldn’t be LE?
Hard to say really as these special displays really never say if a shade or product is limited edition. How irritating right?
As you know from my numerous rants I do have a little bit of a love/hate relationship with these eyeshadows but the formula is such a hit or miss that I feel this absolute need to collect them all.
Let’s see if you need Gleaming Bronze.
