Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara Review

I switch out mascara like shoes! I’m always trying new brands and formulas and the Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara is this weeks pick! The tube is so bright I couldn’t even get a decent photo!

 

The Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara comes in a soft tube (which a lot of companies are now doing) that kind of looks like lip gloss. It’s a volumizing and lengthening formula that is Made in Korea.

The wand is very fine and it does lift and separate my lashes really well. I like that it only took one coat and it lasted all day. I’ll definitely use this one up!

It is also Cruelty Free and Gluten Free.

Price: $26

4 Fabulous Mascara Picks For Spring 2019

I love mascara! It’s a daily staple for me and I’m alway trying new brands and formulas. I’m also a bit of a germaphobe so I swap out mascara after 30 days which means price is a factor for me. So far for Spring 2019 these 4 picks are making up my mascara hot list!

From Right to Left…

ColourPop BFF Volumizing Mascara – The BFF mascara comes in 7 shades including Magenta which I might have worn in my 20’s! I have the Black on Black which suites me fine. Price: $8 which is a deal!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is on the pricey side at $24 but I received this full-sized tube in my February GlossyBox so all is good. I love that it give my lashes a little curl! It is made in Italy and the metal tube is a work of art!

PUR Fully Charged Mascara – The PUR Fully charged mascara adds a bit of science (and volume) to your lashes. “It’s Mascara Powered by Magnetic Technology that attracts to each individual lash to strengthen, thicken, lengthen and separate for unparalleled performance.” WOW! Price: $22. I got this one in my PUS Mystery bag.

Avon True Color Super Extended Lengthening Mascara – The price is right on this Hypoallergenic formula that won’t clump, smudge, or flake. It does give my lashes some nice length and it has good wear. Price: $8.

Whoo! Target Beauty Boxes Are In Stores!

I was at Target today for bananas and toilet paper and almost squealed when I saw the kiosk of Target Beauty Boxes for April.

IMG_3121.jpgThere were three choices including the Target Beauty Box Wakeup and Makeup, Target Beauty Box Treat Yourself,  and the Target Beauty Box ALL THE MASKS a Each box costs $7.

I picked up the Wakeup and Makeup and Treat Yourself boxes.

You can also get the boxes online if they are still available.

I really loved the mWakeup and Makeup as I got 2 ELF products and the Covergirl Peacock Flare mascara.

I am really hoping these boxes are a regular thing at Target.

Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara Review

I received the Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara in my March 2018 Boxycharm Box and WOW, it’s amazing.

What’s to love?

The Double Decker Lashes Mascara has a huge fuzzy brush that kind of looks like a caterpillar and that’s a big WOW factor for me. I love two types of brushes — the tiny fine ones and the huge fuzzy ones so this one fits me just great.

I found this mascara super easy to apply, even on my bottom lashes. I got amazing coverage and my lashes looked amazing.

Double Decker Lashes Mascara features from Butter London…

• Creamy, lightweight texture – Emulsifying system

• Multiply – Synergy between the interlocking nylon fiber brush and emulsifying system

Benefit BADgal BANG! Mascara – First Impression

Benefit is one of my favorite brands so I wanted to give the new Benefit BADgal BANG! Mascara a test drive. I got the mini-size because I never keep mascara past 30-45 days. The mini is $12 and the full-sized product is $24.

First Impression!

First up, the packaging is nice. The wand handle has bumps so it’s easy to hold and the wand itself is compact with tiny bristles.

e1The consistency of BADGal BANG is a little sticky at first but once it dries it feels nice. I got great coverage and my lower lashes really stand out and are nicely separated.

The black shade looks a bit more glossy than matte which I liked and I felt like my lashes looked full without being clumpy. I wear glasses so I like a darker and fuller look.

Overall my first impression was amazing. I really like the results and I can’t wait to see if BADgal BANG has the staying power that everyone is talking about.

Marcelle Ultimate Volume Nano Mascara Review

I am loving this nano brush! I received the Marcelle Ultimate Volume Nano Mascara in my February 2018 Birchbox and WOW!

What’s to love?

Sometimes you just want to go small with your lashes! The wand on this mascara so tiny and makes getting your lower lashes a dream! I got amazing control and there was zero clumping or flaking. Sometimes you just want a little mascara and this product is exactly what I was looking for. It’s also hypo-allergenic and Opthamologist tested.

Retail Price: $12.95

Covergirl Has A NEW Peacock Flare Mascara!

  • Extreme Black
  • Intense Black

I wanted the Jet Black but they were out at Target. Has anyone tried this product yet?

Boxycharm December 2017 Review

The December 2017 Boxycharm Box is called Glitz & Glam and it’s amazing! Boxycharm is really doing a really great job with their boxes! I pay $21/month for this subscription.

The theme this month is called and I got products from Tarte, Real Her, Crown Brush, Pretty Vulgar and Beat Basics.

Here’s my video unboxing of the December 2017 Boxycharm box!

 

Urban Decay Trouble Maker Mascara

The new Urban Decay Trouble Maker Mascara looks amazing! I am a bit of a mascara junkie and this one really interests me because it “contains two different types of black pigments, giving it an intensity that’s blacker”. I love really black, black mascara!

It also has a really neat brush that doesn’t look like a caterpillar! I am finding that smaller brushes work better for me.

Has anyone tried this formula yet? I am hoping a sample size shows up in one of my beauty boxes this Fall.

Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara Review

I received a Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara in my August 2017 Glossybox and here’s the scoop on the new mascara from Lancôme.

What’s to love?

Monsieur Big is truly a volumizing mascara. I have the 01 Big Is The New Black Shade and I’m wondering if more shades are coming.

The formula is super smooth applies very evenly with the large furry wand. All I needed was one stroke for complete coverage. It did not flake or smudge and I got 8-hours of wear out of it. I never have any need to wear mascara for 24-hours but it claims to last that long! It uses “supple waxes and polymers to adhere immediately to lashes”.

I’m excited to be using a Lancôme product too. They were a favorite for me in the ’80’s and their products are very good quality. Monsieur Big is appropriately Made in France too.

You can see my video unboxing of the August 2017 Glossybox below!
