Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

            

I was SO incredibly excited to get this in my most recent Sample Society Box. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I’m ready to share my thoughts with y’all! First off, let’s see what Benefit’s claims are…

What Benefit Says It Does:

What it is:
A mascara inspired by hair rollers, this super-curling and lifting mascara gives a sexy, wide-eyed look. Its patent-pending Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush features tiny custom-designed hooks to catch, lift, and curl even short and straight lashes. 
What it does:

Bye-bye, eyelash curler! Roller Lash not only lifts and super-curls, but this instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours, is easy to remove, and contains provitamin B5 and serine, known for their lash-conditioning benefits.

What I Think It Does:

I do like this mascara a lot. The formula is nice, on the thinner side, and glides on the lashes easily. I do not think this actually “curls” your lashes with the “hook and roll technology.” If you curl you lashes before you apply it it does hold the curl all day long, which I really like. It lengthens nicely and doesn’t flake or smudge on me, even on the lower lashes. I have very watery eyes so that’s a huge win for me.

Although it lengthens really well, I don’t find it to be volumizing, it doesn’t claim to be, I just have longer lashes and am looking for a more volumizing mascara most times. 

At the end of the day if I had to choose between this and the Benefit “They’re Real” mascara, I would choose “They’re Real.” It does all of the same things as the “Roller Lash” plus I find it to be more volumizing.

What are your thoughts on the Roller Lash mascara? I’d love to know!

L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper



I bought this on a whim when I ran out of my Maybelline Clear Brow gel. I had seen “Essie Button” post about her favorite drugstore makeup on her blog and this was one of her favorites so I decided to give it a shot. 

This retails for around $9 depending on where you buy it.  

Here’s what L’oreal claims it does:

“Fill brows in an instant and hold hair in place with this easy-to-apply brow gel mascara. Formulated with a subtle tint, the gel adheres to even the finest hairs, leaving them fuller and more defined with a single application.”



Here’s what I think:

I love this stuff. The size of the brush is perfect and the formula is great! The gel keeps my curly brows in place all day long. The teeny tiny fibers in the tinted gel fill in the small gaps I have in my brows and make everything look seamless. I used to use a pencil and a clear gel and now I just use this. It’s so easy and fool-proof. I love it!

If you have major issues to work with, like scars or big gaps, this might not be the product for you but if you have fairly full brows and just want to make them look more uniform and keep them in place then you will love this stuff!

Have any of y’all used this? Let me know what you thought!

February Empties

Can you believe February is almost over?! One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to use up the stuff I already have so I have been going through products like crazy. Check out my latest empties in the video below!

Valentine’s Red Lip Favorites

image1

My favorite reds are blue toned. They complement most skin tones and make your teeth look whiter so that’s what I normally stick with. Here are some of my favorites…

image2

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil – “Pomegranate”

This is probably the warmest red out of all of them but it’s so gorgeous. This is so comfortable on the lips, glides on smoothly, and had pretty good staying power too!

image3

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense – “Mightiest Marachino”

This is extra creamy, almost glossy, and slightly sheer. This is a good pick if you want to try out a red lip for the first time.

image4

Revlon Lip Butter – “Red Velvet”

This is a deep red that is really wearable. It’s not in your face at all and like all lip butters, it feels really good on the lips.

image5

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm – “Standout” #250

This is definitely my favorite red out of the bunch. It’s matte, easy to apply with the pointed crayon tip, stays on all night, and doesn’t venture out of you lip line at all. I grab this one 99% of the time I’m going for a red lip.

Valentine’s Pink Lip Favorites

I love any excuse to wear pink lipstick. Here my top 5 favorites for Valentine’s day!

image2 Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in “Destined”

This is a gorgeous matte magenta color with the slightest hint of purple.

image6Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in “Pink Pop”

Even though this is just a gloss it is so pigmented you could totally just wear it alone if you don’t want a high maintenance lip.

image5Too Faced Melted Liquified Longwear Lipstick in “Melted Fuschia”

This is BRIGHT. It definitely pops off your face and I love it! Plus, the formula is so longwearing and comfortable on the lips.

image4Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in “Winterberry”

I almost didn’t put this in because it was from a limited edition holiday kit but it is one of my all time favorites so I couldn’t not mention it. The formula of this stuff is amazing and they have so many other gorgeous colors.

image3Revlon Colorstay Colorburst Lacquer Balm in “Vivacious”

This is so moisturizing and pigmented. It looks just like the outside of the tube. Revlon definitely got it right with this one.

What are some of your favorite pink lip products? Let me know in the comments. I’ll be back on Wednesday with my top 5 picks for red lips!

Too Faced – “Better Than Sex” Mascara

image1

I wanted to love this, I really did. Everyone has been RAVING about it so when I saw the combo of a mini version of this and a mini shadow insurance I scooped it up!

Let’s start with Too Faced’s claims…

Take home our Better Than Sex mascara and all your desires for lush, incredibly intense lashes will be fulfilled. One application of our collagen-fueled formula and touch of our specially shaped brush will leave you begging for more. One coat and lashes are full, defined and stretched to unbelievable lengths. Two coats and they’re reaching unbelievable heights of drama. Three coats and you’ll believe in magic. $23.00

How it is in real life…

I have to say I agree with all of those claims. One coat and you literally start to look like you have falsies even though it’s not a fiber mascara. Two coats was perfect for me but three started to look a little spidery for my taste. The brush is a really effective shape and helps get to those shorter inner lashes plus it holds a curl beautifully.

The reason I can’t love it though is because about 2/3 through the work day I check the mirror and it is all under my eyes. It flakes and smudges like crazy on me. I tried so hard to love it but it just does not work with my watery eyes.

Have you tried it? What did you think?
