CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant: Timeless Rubies

As I was buying my Maybelline Color Tattoo, Inked in Pink, I couldn't just pass by the spinning CoverGirl display without having a peek. And so goes my downfall because I spotted a metallic/foil looking nail polish in a very pretty shade. This is how I ended up leaving the drugstore with 2 beauty products I really shouldn't have splurged on.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Metal: Inked in Pink

It must have been new display day at my local drugstore because CoverGirl, L'oreal, and Maybelline all had new displays promoting all sorts of products.

When I have work days that start early, I get pretty lazy with my makeup, yet at the same time I can't really ignore it because I need some perking up from the makeup. Which is why, I have been loving my Barely Beige Color Tattoo. It's so quick to apply and all I need is a rather haphazard application of a crease shade and I'm good to go where eyeshadow is concerned. So when I saw Inked in Pink, I thought it could work well to bring some warmth to my eyes yet still be very wearable for everyday. At least that's how I justified the purchase.

Inked in Pink is a frosty metallic pink shade that leans more towards the warm side to me. This shade definitely looks warm heavily swatched, but blended out it favors the frostiness while still having that hint warmth. As for how I use it, I don't spend too much time being precise applying this color because it blends so wonderfully. Add a bit of a taupe crease shade and I'm done!

I really like the fact this can be my no fuss eyeshadow for days I don't want to work too hard on my eye looks. It's something a bit different from my usual neutrals but still wearable for a work day. There are several new colors available, one of which is a nude shade. If you're looking for affordable cream eyeshadows, I highly recommend the Color Tattoos from Maybelline.

CoverGirl: Lash Blast 24HR

Lately I've been trying out CoverGirl's Lashblast 24HR mascara since it's been rather wet and rainy around here. The other two mascaras I've been using don't hold any curl at all if the weather is heavily misty or rainy, so I thought I'd give Lashblast 24HR a go and see how it works out in those scenarios.

Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner

After a week and three storms, here on the Northwest side of the U.S. I decided that photographing black would probably give me the least amount of trouble, since I depend on natural light and it's been unpredictable lately.

Dolly Wink is the brain child of Tsubasa Masuwaka, a Japanese model known for her Gyaru style. The Dolly Wink liquid liner has had some buzz in the beauty community, especially for those that have an interest in Asian beauty products. If you're familiar with the Dolly Wink eyeliner you're probably noticing that mine is has different packaging.
