What's new/Want It! Wednesday: Phsyician's Formula 2-in-1 Eyeliner..

Hi there!

Who's excited for Spring make-up? This girl!!
Most brands have announced Spring 2011 collections and new products, and this one has caught my attention:

Physcians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum, $10.95 and comes in Ultra Black, Black, and Brown.

Description as per their website:
  • High-tech formula visibly enhances natural lash growth while providing the instant definition of a liquid eyeliner, in one easy step!
  • Lash Boosting complex targets the root of lashes where it is most effective in providing nutrients associated with growing long, thick lashes.
  • Innovative and easy to use eyelining tool delivers effortless definition.
  • High-tech Japanese formula is long-wearing, water-resistant and smudge-resistant.
The display for the product states:
-- After 2 weeks, over 75% of women saw Longer, Fuller, More Enhanced Lashes.
-- After 4 weeks, over 91% of women saw Longer, Fuller, More Enhanced Lashes.

The only problem is, I can't seem to find this anywhere! I'll let you know when I get my hands on it..

Anyone anxious to try this? Has it already? Leave me some thoughts!

Until next time--

Tried it Tuesday-- Will you choose Essence's "Choose Me!"?

Greetings! =)

For today I have Essence's Colour & Go Nail polish in "Choose Me!" It's available at Ulta for a whopping $0.99~ Is it worth that pretty penny? Let's take a look!

*The color is off!! Read descriptions, please!*

The bottle is smaller than normal, but I still really like the size of the brush and the quality of the polish. Two coats is more than enough for even, opaque color.

See how the bottle is more green? This polish is blue-based (which you see on nail) with green glitter, making it almost a turquoise. For some reason my camera was being a punk.

Blue base~ this was after 2 days wear WITHOUT base coat/topper. Not much chipping!

Here is a better picture from another blog of the TRUE color:

And mine without flash, so you know I'm not a liar. ;)

It is an excellent dupe of OPI's Catch Me In Your Net:

Such a gorgeous color! Maybe not for those of us who are still in Winter, but it will fit in nicely with all of the Peacock colors we will be seeing in the spring!!

What are you wearing on your nails?

Until next time--

Mascara Monday: Getting catty with Maybelline Falsies DRAMA!!


The other day I was at Target perusing the cosmetics aisle and remembered that I needed to replace my beloved Falsies Mascara. They have a new version out now that is "The Falsies Black Drama"-- the difference is that it is an "extreme matte" black. (Check out the specifics here.)

Let's take a look!

The spoon-shaped brush.



I really like this mascara, if you remember the original post here. The only thing is you can easily over-apply and then you have those little clumps on the tips of your lashes. They can easily be pinched off, but still a tad annoying. It lasts all day without flaking and I haven't found it to smudge or budge at all. The spoon brush is a little different, so give it a few chances.

As far as the "Drama" goes, I didn't notice a difference in the effect with having the matte black pigment. The tube is pretty, though. =)

I recommend it! Also, you can normally find it on sale for $5!!

Have you tried the Falsies? What do you think?

Until next time--
