Product Review | L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Holy Toledo! I thought the day would never come. I, Valerie Spielberg, am in love with a L'Oreal mascara. That's right, I said it, Maybelline is no longer my one (drugstore) true love, I'm sorry boo, it's not me, it's you. 

Now listen, Maybelline has always been my main mascara man, I've also had torrid affairs with Covergirl and Rimmel, but L'Oreal never managed to make me stray. However, the L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara is unlike any other mascara I've ever used before.

Product Review + Makeup Looks | Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Hip hip hooray! This super hyped up palette was a bitch to get my hands on but, I worked hard (lost a lot of sleep...did I mention I have a problem?) and it's finally mine! Hopefully, it's worth it...You be the judge. Here it goes!

As you'd expect, the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette smells amazing (like spring and summer and rainbows and puppies! Not but seriously, it just smells like heavenly peach). The packaging is gorgeous and the colors are really eye catching. Some people are saying the color selection is a bit random, but I believe it to be incredible smart and practical. You get neutrals, warm tones, cool tones and color. I mean sure, I get that not all of them really fit tge "peach theme", but I ain't complaining! Like who cares? It's a great palette to travel with as it might be their most versatile to date (in my personal opinion, I tend to touch more colors in the this palette than any other, and we all know I'm obsessed...So you can imagine!!)

Product Review | Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation

Wednesday, April 6, 2016

Alright. I've been on a roller coaster ride with this Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation, so I have quite a bit of rambling to do. If you were curious about this product, buckle up!

First of all, it took 3 tries to find the right shade, and even at that it's not quite a perfect match, but good enough to work with and wear out. Because the packaging doesn't let you see the actual product, you have to rely on the colors painted on there, which aren't super accurate. Also, all shades I've tried either lean towards the pink or orange undertone...But that's my one BIG complaint with this foundation. Could be worse...On the bright side, it doesn't oxidize much?
