Did you smell that plastic burning yesterday? Yes, that was my credit card after yesterday's Sephora haul! Seriously, that place is my happy place and I could spend hours in there, however I had my two year old with me so my trip lasted as long as his sucker.


 Benefit gimme brow : I am always on the hunt for brow products to boost up sparse brows while grooming them. Loved the fact that this product consists of fibers that attaches to the brows that help create the illusion of a fuller brow. I used this product this morning, and the jury is still out. I definitely like it, but not sure if it is a must have.

 Bite Agave Lip Mask: I am feeling the repercussions of this brutal winter, especially on my lips.  I tried a sample in the store and was hooked! I found that exfoliating my lips with my tooth brush and then applying the mask was a perfect combo. My lips feel amazing and my lip gloss is popping (lol).

 Make Up Forever High Definition Cream Blush in 425: Gorgeous coral blush that will look amazing this summer on sun kissed skin. It is a cream to powder formula, and it blends like a dream for the perfect application. Highly recommend!

 Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Medium Brown: Anastasia knows her brows! I really wanted to try the dip brow however Sephora is sold out in store and on line. I settled for this pencil, and I love! It is the perfect color for filling in my brows. It glides smooth and when gently applied and perfectly mimics the illusion of tiny hairs. Definitely will be buying more of these for my kit.

New products always call for a selfie! Love how fuller yet softer my brows are looking. I filled them in with the Anastasia Brow Pencil and went over them with the Benefit Gimme Brow.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Lusting for longer fuller lashes? Check out my five current favorite mascaras that will take your lashes from drab to fab in just a few strokes of a wand.

1. Benefit They're Real

Hands down the best mascara on the market. The formula is spot on and the wand design is ingenious. The graduated bristles can bring even the sparsest of lashes to life. Definitely worth its $23 price tag!

2. L'Oreal Double Extend

I have to admit I was a little skeptical of the whole fiber tubing mascara, but this mascara is in a league of its own. This two step application process is quick and easy, and leaves your lashes looking noticeably longer and fuller, without the creepy spider leg look. Bonus, this mascara is virtually clump free and you can skip curling your lashes as it is that awesome! This is my current personal favorite.

3. L'Oreal Voluminous

A must have it my kit. This is a fool proof mascara that is a staple for many make up artists. The formula is awesome for adding fullness and length to lashes with out the clumping. Definitely cannot go wrong with this one.

4. L'Oreal Butterfly Effect

L'Oreal knows how to make their mascaras! I compare this to a dupe of Benefit's they're real with the graduated bristle length although this wand is angled unlike Benefit's traditional wand shape. I love the how the brush is angled allowing an even and flawless application to the hardest of reach lashes and is also fabulous for those baby bottom lashes.

5. Buxom

Once again, it is the wand design that puts this one in a league of its own. I received a sample of this in of my Sephora gift bags, and I found myself constantly reaching for it. The wand is curved with various length of bristles which is a game changer for lashes. The formula is fabulous as well, it is definitely a product worth splurging for!
