How To Remove Mascara Smudges Without Ruining Your Makeup

We've all done it. The dreaded mascara smudge. Then, when you try to clean it off, you wind up smearing it & making it even worse. There's a better way. I learned the trick to cleaning mascara smudges without making a mess & I pass that info on to you in this video. :)

Review: TwistNClean Mascara Wand Cleaner

Click Image To Enlarge
Disclosure: This product was sent to me by the company for review purposes. Who of us has not dealt with a goopy mascara wand? I think most of us have. We usually have 2 options, just deal with it (which usually results in clumpy lashes) or wipe the wand with a tissue (which can sometimes result in lint on the brush, yuck!). How about a much better option? Enter the

Review: Sei Bella Lash Primer & Defining Lash Mascara

Hey everyone! I recently realized that it's been a while since I did a review video. I usually do hauls & faves. So, I thought I'd review the Sei Bella Lash Primer & Defining Lash Mascara. I review both because they work really well together. If you'd like to see comparison shots of my lashes, see below the video. :)

Hard Candy Lash Ink

A while back I bought Hard Candy's Lash Ink at Walmart, but for some reason never tried it. Partially because of a previous bad experience w/a lash ink/stain & I don't know, maybe I was suffering from a deplorable lack of curiousity. Lol.

Anyway, I decided to do a little experiment w/it. It says it lasts 4 days, so I put it on & I'm recording my progress & checking in each morning & evening to see how it holds up. So, keep your eyes peeled for my video coming soon.

So, what do you guys think of this product? Love it? Hate it? Never tried it? Let me know in the comments! :)

New NYX Mascaras

I was checking out NYX's new products page & it looks like they have 2 new mascaras that look interesting.

The Fly With Me mascara is supposed to:
intensify lashes 100 times, making average lashes infinitely long, boldly black and providing intense coverage for extreme thickness. 
The brush looks pretty trippy too. lol.

The Grow Lash mascara claims:
This long and full lash mascara with “Grow Lash Serum” helps lashes grow stronger while instantly adding visible volume and length to create a thicker, fuller, more beautiful look.
So, I'm curious what you guys think. Have you tried either of these? Let me know in the comments! :)

L.A. Girl - "What's New"

I was checking out the "What's New" page on L.A. Girl's website & perused the products listed. I was wondering about the 2 products shown in the image.

I was wondering because I've heard good things about their eyeshadows, but nothing about their other products. What do you guys think? Have you tried a variety of L.A. Girl's products? Let me know in the comments! :)

Lash Control

Problem: Clumpy mascara wands & having to wipe them with tissue or against the inside of the mascara container. Very messy.

Solution: Lash Control, a new mascara invention that gets rid of the clumps w/o the mess & doesn't waste formula by having to wipe the brush on tissue. Simply squeeze the colored section of the container as your pulling out the brush. No muss, no fuss.

Consider this problem solved.

Maybelline's Lash Stiletto

Lash StilettoI'm sorry for neglecting you guys. It seems like everything piles on at once, plus the friend w/breast cancer that I mentioned in a previous post recently passed away (she's not suffering anymore, thank goodness).

On a brighter note, I figured I'd mention my latest purchase, Maybelline's Lash Stiletto. My overall impression is very positive. Not only is the packaging slick & classy, but this stuff lengthens like nobody's business! It also held the curling I gave my lashes pretty well. Great lengthening ability & slick packaging, what's not to like?

Blinc Mascara

Well, I've finally had the opportunity to try Blinc's Kiss Me Mascara & Eyeliner (Thanks Molly!). My overall impression of this is better than my impression of L'Oreal's Double Extension mascara (No surprise there, since Blinc was the original innovator.). Since this mascara doesn't automatically come w/a primer (sold seperately), I used the primer that came w/my L'Oreal mascara to give my lashes some oomph. My impressions?
  • One, this stuff held my curl & stayed put for hours w/o smudging
  • Two, this mascara (& eyeliner) was significantly easier to remove than L'Oreal's mascara
  • Last, but definitely not least, this mascara didn't leave my lashes feeling dry & brittle. YAY!
If you get this mascara, I recommend you get a lash primer as well. On it's own it doesn't give enough oomph to the lashes. However, the smudge-free staying power makes it worth it. Overall, I really like this mascara & eyeliner!
