The never ending quest....

Yes, I'll admit it, I am a mascara hoarder. I try all kinds until I find one that I cannot live without. Even once I find one I love, I am still on the prowl for the next great one.
I follow a bunch of beauty guru's on You tube and some of them have talked about this mascara, so I decided to try it out myself.
I will admit, I had my hesitations about it. I just wasn't sure if the quality was going to be there.
To my surprise it was.
I bought the waterproof Colossal mascara by Maybelline when it was on sale at CVS. I have to say, I am totally in love with this mascara. For now, it has replaced my Diorshow, YSL, well.....everything.
The brush is very similar to Diorshow's wand. I, personally, love big fluffy wands. They add more volume to your lashes.
Colossal also has collagen in the formula which helps plump and build up your lashes.
So there it is ladies, this is my new GO TO mascara. And, honestly, for $5-$6 a tube, it's worth trying it. That's why I did.

If there are any other products you'd like for me to review, or if you have questions about a makeup product, email me.

Using cleansing oil to wash your face?

Most people would not think to wash their face with oil. Well, I am one of them, UNTIL. I heard the rave reviews about these cleansing oils. I have personally been using the MAC cleansing oil lately. I have to say, I LOVE it! Even when I wear waterproof makeup, the oil takes it right off. I have dry skin, and this leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft afterwards. This cleansing oil works for all skin types. Whether you have dry or oily, this will work on you without clogging your pores.
You just rub one pump of the oil onto your face, add a little warm water until it gets to a milky consistency. Then wash off completely with warm water. Your face will now be soft as a babies bum! Don't forget to moisturize as well.

Here is the MAC cleansing oil I use. You can get it at your local MAC store or here

This is another brand, DHC, which I've heard great things about as well. You can purchase this item here

If you use these products, let me know what you think.

Until next time.....
