Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Review

I received the a Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil in Côte D’azur in my February 2018 Sephora Play Box. . This pencil comes in 4 matte shades and 20 metallic shades and the full-sized price is $23.

I was a huge Lancome girl in the 80’s and I’m thrilled to find a product that I like using today.

What’s to love?

The Drama Liqui-Pencil is a dream to apply and the color is gorgeous! I simply ran the pencil under my lower lashes and had no tugging or pulling — it literally glides on! You can smudge the color or leave as-is. The blue is really bright and I’d probably only wear this at a special event or an 80’s party but I’d like to try the Metallic Bronze shade for daily wear.

I also found the staying power to be amazing! I went 8-hours without any fading.

It is formulated without Parabens or Sulfates.

GLAMGLOW Gravitymud Firming Treatment Sonic Blue Collectible Edition Review

The GLAMGLOW Gravitymud Firming Treatment Sonic Blue Collectible Edition is the most expensive face mask I’ve ever used but well worth it and if I ever win the lottery I’m buying about 50 of these.

I bought this tube of Sonic Blue Gravitymud at Sephora for $22 for 0.05 oz. (yes, I am crazy) and without another income source I’m definitely not buying another one. However aside from the price I love the product.


What’s to love?

I’ve been a fan of GlamGlow for about a year now and relish in getting their masks in my beauty boxes because I really do love their products.

The Gravitymud in Sonic Blue is that same as the silver Gravitymud only it’s blue. I’ve used the silver variety too.

Gravitymud in Sonic Blue is a peel off mask (which I love) and it goes on smoothly and I leave the metallic blue (it’s really blue) mask on for 30 minutes then peel it off. It’s actually easier to peel if you apply a thicker coat but then you have to use more product. I wipe they reside off with a wet make-up remover or just wash it off with cleanser and water.

I get no burning or redness from the Gravitymud masks and this one left my face smooth and tight. I’d love to use it twice a week as recommended however the $22 tube give me 2 uses so that would be about $88/month for treatments. Whoa!

I also love how GlamGlow smells. All of their masks have a unique scent and that smells amazing to me.

Overall I’m thrilled with this mask I just don’t love the price.

L’Oreal Infallible Paint Eye Shadow Review

The new L’Oreal Infallible Paint Eye Shadow is a really interesting product with a lot of potential and uses.


What’s to love?

This new two sided liquid eyeshadow from L’Oreal is a true paint and I have to agree that it is Infallible. It comes in 12 color combinations including: Mistress Noir (black), Shady Violet (purple), Navy Yard (navy/pink), BRB Blue (blue/grey), Aqua Aura (aqua/sand), Mint Detox (green), Army Camo (olive), Jet Set Blonde (yellow/white), Sunset Fire (red), Cool Ivory (white), Nude Fishnet (beige), Brown Sugar (brown).

I chose the Aqua Aura shade. I love that this product comes in big bold colors. These would be great for holiday or costume make-up too as the color does not budge!

Each side is a liquid eyeshadow that you apply with a doe foot. The aqua side is more of a sheen while the sand side is a shimmer. The product has no scent and applies like a cream.

You have a good deal of choices with application too. You can go dark by just applying and letting it dry and it’s buildable. Or you can blend it which is what I did. I used an eye shadow primer which makes the product even more blendable. Once it’s dry however you really can’t blend much. It does dry like paint but with no cracking.

I don’t usually wear blue eye shadow but I wanted to be a little different and I think it looks nice.

If you’re young I think the possibilities are endless with this product. Green would make a great St. Patrick’s Day look or you could do a cool Pokemon inspired style with yellow, white and red.

L’Oreal Nail Color In Pop The Bubbles Review

Tomorrow I’m sitting at the kids table for Thanksgiving dinner so I thought it would be fun to wear some sparkly nail polish so I chose L’Oreal Nail Color In Pop The Bubbles.


What’s to love?

This is the first time I have tried L’Oreal nail polish and I have to say it’s really nice. One coat gave me amazingly good coverage and two coats looks like liquid blue glitter in glass. It’s so pretty and shimmery under the light I love it!

I also liked that this L’Oreal nail polish seems to have a lower odor for me and I it applies like a high-end polish like O.P.I. or Essie and at $6.99 is a really good deal.

The color is also amazing. Like a snowy blue. This would be a great color for New Year Eve too.

I really want to try some more L’Oreal nail polish colors soon.

4th of July Nails: Yay or Nay!

I went to Target today (big surprise) and saw a huge display of the Sally Hansen Color Shine 3 pack for the 4th of July, I could not resist, I love anything with a holiday theme. This is a Target exclusive and cost me $4.99.

Now let me say that I am not a nail professional…at all. Not even close. Painting my own nails with one color is a feat for me but I wanted to attempt something festive. Not sure I succeed though, I can’t even imagine being this good.

The Polish

Sally Hansen is a great brand and for $4.99 this set is really nice. You get 3 colors: Pacific Blue, Pucker Up (Red) and White On. I found the white polish to be the nicest of the three. You could easily only use one coat. The blue and red need two coats for good coverage which perplexes me because more coats just adds to the goo factor.

The Design

My problem is that I could not even come close to creating the beautiful designs on the back of the package. The stripes were a little easier but I think you’d need some sort of expertise and a thinner brush to achieve the star. I also had a problem controlling the polish near the edges.

I got more creative with my thumb and added some white dots and a few Swarovski crystals. The crystal in the center was a design accident but I’m calling it art.

So Yay or Nay?

My daughter loved, my mom thought I did a nice job and my husband just gave me a raised eyebrow…I have no idea what that means. I doubt however that the nice people from Sally Hansen will be calling me anytime soon.

So I feel like it’s a “Yay” look for this middle-aged mom on the 4th of July, but a “Nay” for my career as a hand model or nail designer.

Oh and the polish is Made in the USA which is a big “Yay” for me.
