This is a great mascara. It costs as little as $7.97 at Walmart, which is still a little bit more expensive than most drugstore mascaras, but I would say that it is definitely worth it. The mascara claims that it will stretch lashes toward the outer corner to create a "winged" effect. It also says that it lengthens and volumizes lashes with its unique "Cocoon Fibers". The mascara definitely gives you length like no other, but I have to say that the eyelashes those girls have in the commercials definitely did not come from this mascara. Although the asymmetric brush does get rid of any clumps, it does little to "stretch your lashes toward the outer corner." If you're looking to get that exaggerated, winged look, I would suggest getting some fake lashes or waiting for the next "revolutionary brush" that will give them to you.
We have had a couple of snowy days recently, and I just couldn't help going out and snapping a few pics in our "winter wonderland". Where I live, snow is not a typical thing so as soon as a couple flurries fall down to the ground, everyone is already out there trying to savor it as much as possible. I hate to admit that I am no different and I was already building a snowman at about 11PM a few days ago...oops. Anyway, while I was out there this morning, trying to make snow look as artsy as possible, I realized that everyone is probably going to be out taking pictures, and everybody needs some pretty, snowy makeup to wear in those pictures.
I hope that got you into a wintery mood (if you weren't in one already), now onto the actual tutorial. In the wintertime, you have to remember two very important things, the first is moisturizer and the second is sunscreen. The cold air can easily strip your skin of it's natural oils and dry out all the moisture that is already there. Using moisturizer DAILY can replenish all the moisture that the winter air strips from your skin and create a barrier that protects your skin from drying out again. Now onto sunscreen, for some reason it's common knowledge that during the winter the sun isn't "as strong" or isn't "as dangerous". Well, I hate to say it but it is, and as much as we hate wearing sunscreen, we still have to do it. The good news is that most foundations now have SPF in them so you don't necessarily have to wear an additional layer of product. Try to get at least SPF 15 but if you are really prone to sunburn or winterburn then try to get SPF 30.
Use a moisturizer that works for your type of skin (I'm using Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer for Combination Skin. If you have some dry patches of skin and also some oily areas, I highly recommend this moisturizer. It clears up dry patches and also keeps oily skin under control.
Hi, I'm Nicole and I'm really glad that you are visiting my new blog. In this blog, I plan to write about anything from product reviews to makeup how to's, and even suggestions on what makeup to buy and where to buy it. Some of the biggest problems I struggled with when I first started with makeup was how much everything cost. Let's face it, makeup is EXPENSIVE, especially for us teens. That's why one of my main goals on this blog is to show you that drugstore makeup can be one of your best friends, and never to fall into the mindset of "you get what you pay for", because half the time, it's just not true. If you have any specific questions, or if you want me to review a specific product please leave a comment down below and I will answer it as soon as possible.
Thank You for visiting and I really hope that I can be of help to you :)
