I love neutral cream eye shadow so, even though I have no shortage of brown shadows (I seriously don’t need any more), I bought a new Maybelline Eye Studio eye shadow trio while out shopping. The trio, Neutral Illusions, has three nice cream shadows: A pink/beige, a luminous champagne/light brown, and deep brown that has […]

Revlon has entered the fray into high definition style makeup with Revlon Photo Ready Makeup and Revlon Photo Ready Powders. I bought one of each to review. Revlon Photo Ready Foundation has a nice smooth consistency that provides medium coverage.  Although it is oil free, it feels rather moisturizing, and I felt that it was […]

Maybelline Lash Discovery is one of my old favorite mascaras. Before I ended up getting so many different kinds of mascara in order to test them, it was the one that I bought over and over again.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara is a bit interesting. It lengthens very well—in fact I may have gotten more length from this one than from any other mascara. It also defines fairly well. But it does so in a way that made my lashes look thicker at the base and a bit spindly at the top. […]

I grabbed a bottle of Maybelline Salon Expert Nail Color because I loved the bright summer pink shade (pink splash, number 822). Turns out that I also love the polish in general. Maybelline Salon Expert covers really well. You can get away with only one coat of this stuff, but I went ahead and did […]

Maybelline Dream Mousse Eye Shadow

Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse Eye Shadow

I love Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation (see review). Now I am in love with the eyeshadow as well! Mousse Eye Shadow is an extremely good creme shadow–better than many of the expensive department store brands. Like the other dream mousse products, Maybelline’s dream mousse shadow has a light whipped texture. In fact, this is […]

Maybelline XXL Volume Plus Length Mascara

Maybelline XXL Vlaume Plus Length Mascara

If you want some serious length with thickening to boot, Maybelline XXL Volume + Length Washable Mascara is a decent enough choice. This mascara comes in two pieces, so it requires a bit of patience. One side is white and it lengthens the lashes beautifully. Despite a big brush, which doesn’t always do well for […]
