The Best Drugstore Mascaras | Try on & Review

Of all of the makeup collection reviews that I’ve been doing, I think I was most excited about mascaras.  I filmed each of my mascaras, a different one each day, looked at the footage, and it was 2 hours long.  After days of editing, I realized that I had to split the review in two parts.  So today I’m focused on finding the best drugstore mascara….

I’m a big fan of drugstore mascaras.  Since you really should change your mascara every 3 months, it doesn’t make sense to spend a pile of money on a high end version.  So I went through my drugstore mascara collection to see which ones were the best and which ones were a fail.  Here’s what I found out….

The Best Lip Plumpers for Fuller Lips

Who doesn’t want fuller Kylie Jenner lips?  We all do.  We’ve all dreamed that we would wake up looking like Angelina Jolie (with or without Brad Pitt).  Fillers and injections are a big commitment and expense.  So playing with lip plumpers is a great way to plump your pout.  I decided to test my collection to find the best lip plumpers for fuller lips…..

The Best Lip Plumpers for Fuller Lips

I went through my lip plumpers collection and tested each one to see which ones were winners and which ones are not worth the money.

One of them turned out to be no longer available online (it was my least favorite, so it’s not surprising).  One of my favorites, the Fusion Beauty Lipfusion XXL, is a product I got to use on my recent segment on StyleCodeLive.  I was gifted the Manuka Doctor Lip Enhancer*, which I was excited to try because it’s Kourtney Kardashian’s favorite lip plumper.  I also tried the Too Faced Lip Injections Extreme and the original.  So if you want to see my favorites then here are my reviews….

Is Snapchat Making Vlogging Obsolete?

Is Snapchat Making Vlogging Obsolete?

I have to admit that I’m spending more and more of my time on YouTube.  I especially love beauty related videos, but if I really like a beauty guru I will be interested in learning more about their life.  I think other people feel the same way, which is why vlogging got so popular…

Pinning is Glamorous!

Is Snapchat Making Vlogging Obsolete?

However, I find now that I follow most of my favorite YouTubers on Snapchat, that the Snapchat stories are like daily vlogs.  So I think fewer YouTubers are vlogging and choosing to just use Snapchat.

I’m curious if this is intentional, or just the way things worked out.  In reality, being a content creator is a lot of work… despite the face that we make our lives look so glamorous on Instagram.  Since there is only so much time in a day, it makes sense to Snap instead of vlog since it’s quick and in the moment.  No time consuming editing.  Plus, one could argue it’s more “real”.

However, I like a beautifully edited vlog.  I also like that it’s got some longevity.  Snapchat is so fleeting.

This all comes about at a time when I’ve cut back on my vlogging.  I just don’t know if my life is interesting enough for weekly vlogs.  However, I really enjoy doing them when I’m doing something exciting, like my trip to NYC or my Honeymoon.

If you’d like to know more about my vlogging history then check out my Ultimate Vloggers Tag video….

GLOSSYBOX Unboxing | Fashion Edition

I’ve never actually subscribed to any beauty subscription boxes.  I don’t know why, but I just didn’t jump on the trend.  So I was excited when GLOSSYBOX reached out to me and wanted to know if they could send me the September fashion edition of their box to show my Starlets….

GLOSSYBOX Unboxing | Fashion Edition

For a beauty lover like myself, a beauty subscription box can be like getting a Christmas stocking every month.  But like with stocking stuffers, somethings will get you excited, and some things will be a disappointment.  So here’s what came in my September 2016 GLOSSYBOX and, even though mine was generously gifted, whether I think it’s worth the price of the box….

The Best & Worst Liquid Eye Liners

I love a cat eye flick.  There is just something about a perfect wing that is makeup heaven.  It can be tricky to achieve, but the only real secrets are practice and great tools.  Practice is something you need to do on your own (although I have a private YouTube video where I share all my liquid liner tricks that is available to my mailing list subscribers), but when it comes to the tools, I have a list of the best & worst liquid eye liners for the perfect flick.

Everyday Glam Makeup | Nothing Over $10

Looking like a Starlet is not just for the rich and famous.  Everyone should be able to feel their absolute best.  That’s why I was so excited to film this Everyday Glam makeup look using nothing over $10….

Pinning is Glamorous!

Everyday Glam Makeup | Nothing Over $10

When I first heard about the Nothing Over $10 makeup tag, I started looking through my collection of makeup to see what I had that costs under $10.  I was very excited to find out that many of my Ride or Die Makeup products actually qualify, like the Maybelline New York Define A Brow in Dark Blonde, the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, and the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.

Also, my Holy Grail contour powder is the very affordable NYX HD Blush in Taupe, and my favorite makeup brushes are mostly Real Techniques.

I had to pick up some products like a primer (I picked the Milani Prime Shield Mattify + Pore Minimizing Face Primer), and a lip liner (I picked the Milani Color Statement Lipliner in True Red.) 

I also got a chance to try the Milani Stay Put Matte 17HR Wear Liquid Eyeliner in  Coffee Matte* which I received in my sway bag at GenBeauty. And I got to use one of my favorite liquid lipstick formulas, high end or drugstore, the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Flame. 

Here’s how I got the look….
