I think I'm love....

With a brush set. Sad, isn't it? Well, not so sad when you realize which brush set it is- the Mrs. Bunny Essential Kit from Sigma. THESE BRUSHES ARE FRICKING AMAZING, GUYS. I'll be telling you what I like about each brush, and what I don't like (there won't be much in that category- ha!). P.S: That bit will be at the end of this post, so if you don't want to see pictures, just skip past 'em.

The wonderful case they come in :D

e.l.f. Studio Volume Plumping Mascara Review

Bonjour, mes amis! Como estas? (Like my language switching? ;)) Today I have e.l.f.'s Volume Plumping mascara for y'all. I mentioned this in my haul video, which you can check out here. (Yes, I am shamelessly self promoting my video. Deal with it.) Anyways, let's get back on track... According to e.l.f.'s website, this mascara "coats lashes from root to tip for an intense and dramatic effect" and its "vitamin B rich formula conditions and strengthens for visibly healthier looking lashes". Wow. e.l.f.'s setting the bar pretty low. I like! Let's see how it performs... 


W/ 2 coats

This mascara really impressed me. It was only $3 at Target, which is a total steal! The brush isn't too big, but some might find it cumbersome- especially those who don't like the Lashblast/Diorshow style brushes. I don't own either of those, so I can't show a size difference, but I do not think it's as big as those. You won't find tons of volume here, but there is some, and there is definitely added length. I wouldn't say it has an "intense and dramatic" effect- but I think it lives up to all of its other claims. There is little to no smudging, and zero flaking when worn for a full day (we're talking 10 or more hours). 

Bottom Line:
If you're looking for a simple, everyday mascara that enhances your eyelashes, but aren't looking for tons of volume and length, this mascara is for you! It's cheap and performs well, what more could you want? In fact, I may have found my drugstore dupe of Bobbi Brown's Everything mascara, which I already reviewed here. :D If you guys want, I can do a post comparing the two. 

Until next time!

bareMinerals Foundation Review & Swatching

Woah, I'm still alive! Sorry for the lack of posts this week guys, I don't really have an excuse... >.< Oh well. Anyways, today I have a foundation review for you- bareMinerals foundation, to be exact. I bought this in the bareMinerals customizable Get Started kit offered at Sephora. My shade is Fair. This foundation claims that "-98% said this foundation leaves skin soft, smooth, and younger looking, -90% saw improvements in their skin's appearance with continued use" and "-93% said this foundation makes skin look more radiant". That's a lot of claims, bareMinerals. Let's see how this foundation shapes up.

e.l.f. Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter

Finally, a non mascara post! :D I'll be reviewing the e.l.f. Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter. Quite a mouthful! I already gave my opinion of this in my haul video, which you can watch here, if you haven't already. This concealer claims to "correct under eye problematic areas such as dark circles and bags easily and effectively", according to e.l.f.'s website. It has vitamins A & E chamomile, caffeine and green tea to "moisturize, soothe, and tighten the skin around the delicate eye area". The highlighter is supposed to brighten up the eye area.

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara Review

Heyy!! Today I have another mascara for you. I know, I know, I've been a little crazy with the mascara's lately. Don't worry, though, it's almost over! I'll have a concealer or foundation review up later today, so get exciteddd! XP Anyways... let's get down to the actual review now. This is Maybelline's Illegal Length, which I already kinda reviewed in my haul video, which you can watch here. This is a relatively new mascara from Maybelline, I believe they came out with it sometime in early 2012. It's a fiber mascara, which means that there are little fibers in the formula that adhere onto your lashes and are supposed to make them longer (don't quote me on that). All I know is that I LOVE it!!
Hooray for awesome packaging!
