Mascara Must-Haves


Lately I’ve been wearing much less makeup. Brows, mascara, highlighter, lip color, done. I mean, I’m unofficially working from home right now, so it seems better for my skin to let it breathe for a while. But, if I’m leaving the house, brows and mascara are 100% required in my world. These two mascaras have been my go-to gals. PÜR’s Big Look Lengthening Mascara goes on first to separate and lengthen. Then, before it dries, I apply COVERGIRL’s Super Sizer to really volumize. I’m not a huge fan of the Super Sizer by itself, but as a second coat, it’s like BAM! LASHES! The prices vary depending on where you purchase these, PÜR looks to be between $18 and $22 (I got mine at Kohl’s), and COVERGIRL between $5 and $7. Also, PÜR appears to have switched packaging, but I believe the formula is still the same.

Monthly Favorites: November 2014

Moschino Glamour Perfume: I got this as a gift from my Aunt and Uncle last year. The scent is both fruity and floral. Whenever I wear this I always get a bunch of compliments. I’m not sure that this would be considered a fall scent, but the packaging reminds me of holiday season, so that is when I wear it most.

L.A. Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette – Trendy: I bought this at the Dollar Tree during Halloween. Yep, the Dollar Tree. I bought it to use for contouring on my ghost make-up look, but it went on really well, so I decided to try it for an everyday look. It has pretty long wear, great color deposit, and a good selection of colors. My favorite is the dark pink color, bottom row, second from the left. Absolutely worth the whole dollar I spent on it!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – Carbon Black: This mascara is great for volume. I am not a huge fan of the wand, which an hourglass shape. It makes it difficult to get the lashes near the corner of your eye. I’ve been using this mostly for my top lashes only. It stays put all day without flaking, which is a must for me.

Revlon Colorbrust Lip Butter – Raspberry Pie: I have a couple of these Lip Butters from Revlon. They are one of my favorite lipsticks. They go on really smoothly, and have fairly good staying power for a lipstick that cost less than $5.00. What I like most about this lipstick is it’s not a matte color, but it doesn’t have that crappy glitter stuff in it.


NYX Powder Blush – Mauve and Real Techinques Expert Face Brush: I love this cool pink color. It has great color deposit, and it blends really well. I have been wearing this almost every day. I apply it with the expert face brush, which is also a great foundation brush. I used to use this brush as my foundation brush, but I have since switched to a Sigma kabuki brush.

Those are all my favorites for the month of November. I have a feeling 2015 will be a much more exciting year for monthly favorites. There won’t be any Weekend Wrap-Ups for the month of December because of Vlogmas. If you haven’t already, check out my YouTube page!

Have a great week!
