Jesse's Girl palettes

I've been on the hunt for the Jesse's Girl 9 pan palettes. I went to the Riteaid closest to me & they didn't have them so I decided to go to the other Riteaid in my Town & I found them. They had all four but I only picked up two & plan on going get the other two this weekend & I'm picking up more sinful color polishes! =)

The packaging is pretty cute. I love their logo.

Tickled Pink:

The eyes have it:

The eyes have it & tickled pink

The other two are "brown eyed girl" & "behind blue eyes". These palettes consist of 9 colors.
Price: $3.99

First Impressions:
The colors appear to be really pretty inside the palette but using a brush to apply them doesn't really transfer the nice colors to my eyelids. The sponge works much better at picking up the colors. Also in my opinion I think these would work much better if you used a damp brush/sponge. I had a bit of fall out during application, but nothing major.

Look what I got in the mail Saturday!! It's from Bobbi's Brown's facebook page.

I really like this gloss. It's thick, but not sticky & I love the shine it puts on my lips.

Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette

I won this palette from Miranda's giveaway.
Her blog is Live, Laugh, Love & Lipgloss. Check it out =)

Ever since I got this palette it seems like every time I do my makeup I reach for this. It's the perfect palette for me. The colors are highly pigmented, no fall out, & last without a primer.

I think everyone should has this in their makeup collection =)

I hope I'm not boring any of you with all these posts. Also if there is a certain post you would like for me to do please let me know.

Mark. makeup brushes *review*

A few weeks ago I was searching facebook for a Mark. Rep to see about getting samples. I was familiar with the brand, but had never tried it. Well I came across Geannie

I requested a few samples & Yesterday my package came in the mail. The package included face samples, 2 mini lipgloss samples, a lotion sample, a bodywash sample, perfume samples, & two brushes!

Today will be all about the brushes she sent. I used both of them in my latest FOTD/EOTD.
The eyeshadow brush works great at applying eyeshadow all over your lids. It's super soft & picks up a good amount of product so you get enough for your entire lid in just one sweep.

I been in need of a good powder brush & was completely blown away at how amazing this brush is. Just like the eyeshadow brush this one is also very soft. I used it with the smashbox correcting powder & it did a wonderful job. It applies the powder evenly & doesn't make a mess. I'm extremely very satisfied with this brush. I think everyone should buy it! :)

I looked on the site for prices..
Powder brush: $10
Eyeshadow brush: $8

I'm going to be reviewing the samples soon.

CoverGirl intense shadowblast in Forever pink

Discover rich, waterproof eyeshadows with a built-in primer for color that lasts
— in 6 intensely beautiful shades. (Via

-Beige Blaze
-Platinum Pop
-Forever Pink
-Brown Bling
-Extreme Green
-Blue Bomb

First Impression:
I swatched it on my hand as can be seen in the above picture. I washed & dried my hands twice & it didn't even fade. I went to get my Daughter off the bus & trust me it was hot outside but it still didn't budge. I even took a bath & scrubbed my hand & I can still see a bit of pigmentation. I look forward to trying an eye look with this. I think it would look great with brown or even mixed with gold. I see a ton of possibilities.

P.S. I forgot to take a picture of the applicator, but it looks just light a lip gloss wand.

Maybelline I LOVE falsie's flared



False lash glam with a flare, instantly!
• Patented Spoon Curler Brush fans out lashes from corner-to-corner, while our Pro-Keratin formula instantly builds volume without clumping.
• Unique flexible wand lifts and separates lashes to provide the look of 300% more visible, lashes.

• Washable, also available in waterproof formula.


Hold brush with spoon side upwards against lashes and sweep from root to tip. Repeat until desired look is achieved. Do not let dry between coats. Removes easily with soap and water or Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.

The above pictures doesn't show just how wonderful this mascara is. I'm completely in shock that I now have the mascara I always dreamed of! Sounds lame I know, but omg I love this stuff!

It's pretty easy to apply, just a lot of wiggling the brush. I love the end results my lashes were longer, fuller, & dark!

In the above pictures I was also wearing the WNW palette in Silent Treatment. I know it doesn't show up all that great but my main goal for these photos was to capture my lashes.

I apologize in advance for the picture overload. I figured it would be better to do this post all together instead of separating it into 2 or 3 posts. I also apologize for doing so many posts lately. I just have a LOT to share with y'all.

Covergirl's natureluxe Mascara- Review

I played June Jumble on Covergirls facebook page & won a Natureluxe Mascara. I just received it Today after waiting over two Month's to get it.

Discover splash resistant, luxurious volume that feels light as air. We took out a heavy synthetic and put in a light touch of nature. Just apply to create lashes that are luxurious and water-resistant.

Very Black
Black Brown

I received Very Black

I like the brush alot. I think it works great at coating all my lashes & adding length & volume. It's also very light weight, doesn't feel heavy on my lashes.

I had a tiny bit of clumping, but its my fault. I didn't wait for it to dry in between coats. Thankfully I'm not going anywhere so I don't have to worry about that.

The pictures above look like crap =/ My camera decided to be annoying Today.

Overall: I do like this Mascara. It didn't blow my mine & isn't as good as I expected it to be but it't not completely horrible. It curled my lashes pretty good.

Great Lash & Lip Smackers Review

The Classic tube:

With Mascara:

Without Mascara:


Live Big!
• Bigger brush for great big live-it-up lashes!
• The Great BIG Brush plus volume-building formula gives great BIG lashes
• Volume builds with each coat - no clumps or globs
• Contact lens safe
• Ophthalmologist-tested

Sweep the Great BIG Brush from root to tip of lashes to build big volume. Continue building volume until you achieve your desired look. Do not let dry between coats. Removes easily
with soap and water or with Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.

My thoughts:
I know that this Mascara has been around for 40 years but I honestly don't see what all the hype is about. It's okay if you want to add color & a little length, but if you want a more dramatic look then this isn't for you. I think I'll just use it as a bottom layer and put a coat of another mascara as the top layer to make my lashes looks fuller.

This isn't my first time purchasing this wonderful chapstick/lipgloss whatever you want to consider it. My love for this product started as a kid & all through my teen years this was my go to item to get my lips moisturized.

What I like about it:
Goes on smooth & creamy
has a nice glossy look
The aroma makes me crave one of those Frozen Dr. Peppers

It might seem a little kiddy but honestly this stuff works better than chapstick & carmex.

I been having it on my a couple hours & drunk a whole bottle of water & its still on.

S.X.Y lips

Last Month Payless hosted a few giveaways on their Facebook fan page & I was lucky enough to win two prizes.
I received the S.X.Y by unforgettable moments light-up lipgloss in shades "T.G.I.F" & "Raspberry Martini".

The packaging is pretty nice.

Top: T.G.I.F & Bottom: Raspberry Martini

The packaging has A mirror on one side

T.G.I.F is a pretty reddish color. I really like this one. It's probably my favorite out of the two. (I had trouble getting my camera to pick up the color)

Raspberry Martini is a fun bright pink color that is the perfect shade for the Summer.

Swatches: T.G.I.F & Raspberry Martini

Payless hasn't added these to their site yet so I can't give a price. I saw that Elizabeth Grant also has a similar product. Packaging is almost the same, features a side mirror, & the lid lights up. That one runs for 20 bucks. So I'm thinking S.X.Y should be 10 bucks or under.

These glosses aren't drying, goes on smooth, color lasts through drinks, nice packaging, & I like the added mirror for touch ups on the go.

I honestly don't like the light. I think it was a creative idea to add it, but in my opinion it makes the lipgloss harder to apply because of the glare.

OVERALL the colors are pretty & pigmented so I will continue using them.

Have y'all noticed that the pictures in my last 3 posts are kinda nicer than usual? Well I finally got around to playing with my camera & figuring out the settings =)

Sexy Curves Full body Mascara

Rimmel London sent me this Mascara to review on my blog. I received it free of charge. This review will be my honest opinion.

I also received two different shades of lipgloss. My review can be found HERE

WHAT IT IS: The pin-up girl of mascaras.

WHAT IT DOES: Puts curves in all the right places with the new TRIPLE PLUMP Brush that's oversized and created for women that prefer a fiber brush and more volume- up to 10X more. The unique Lasy Inflation Formula is designed to work in perfect synergy with Triple Plump Blush, It trasnforms lashes to voluptuous, oversized lashes. ANd the results are lasting- Sexy Curves Full Body Mascara delivers 70% voluptuous curls that last for up to 16 hours.



WHERE TO FIND IT: Available at mass market retailers and drugstores nationwide imcluding Walgreens, CVS, Target, and Walmart.

- visibly up to 10X more volume & 70% curlier lashes

-Sexy Curves Full Body: Extra volume & shapely curved Mascara

- Supersized Triple Plumping Brush, reaches lashes from root to tip.
- Full Body Volume without the clumps
- Suitable for contact lens wearers & sensitive eyes

What Do I think?

- Doesn't clump
- Curls my lashes, no need for an eyelash curler.
- lengthens my lashes
- Doesn't irritate my eyes

- The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't give my lashes as much "fullness" as I would like, But the fact that it doesn't clump my lashes allows me to overlook that.


Yes I would. I normally use a primer before using any mascara but when I tested this one out I didn't. My lashes still looked great but next time I'm going to use my primer & see if it helps to add more volume.

Overall I think Rimmel is a great company. Every product I tried from them I loved. The only thing I haven't tried yet is their eyeliner, but I plan to change that soon.
