Makeup of The Day! Trying Out The Loreal Shimmer Mascara

Hello lovies, so in one of my lasts post I had a mini haul, you can check it out in the links below. In that haul, I bought the Loreal Paris 440 Black Quarts Double Extend Eye Illuminator. At first, I will admit I was a bit disappointed with the mascara, I didn’t think it did anything for my lashes or made them very shimmery. But then I read the packaging, and of course I was using it wrong! Derp! The packaging says you apply the black mascara end first, then when it dries add the sparkly end to your lashes on top of the black coat. Before I just used the sparkly end lol. So I grabbed my makeup remover and washed away the mascara and tried again! Finally, TA DA somewhat sparkly lashes.

It isn’t a crazy amount of shimmer, but that’s is kind of a good thing if I want to go out with a little extra something special and not looking like Lady Ga Ga on concert day. The mascara comes in a bunch of different shades, ones for blue, green, brown eyes, ect. I bought the brown eyes formula, even though I have green eyes, because I thought the color on this one was just so pretty!

After I applied the mascara I complemented it with a little bit of gold shimmer from the shimmer palette in the last June 2013 Ipsy bag. I also put on some brown eye liner on top and below my lids. I also put on some kiwi lipgloss from Bath and Body Works, they literally have the best lip gloss ever, and of course foundation, concealer, and face powder. I hope you guys enjoyed this look, please comment, like, and follow me for some more lovin’. Thank for reading and love always Pearlsnheels ❤

A Random Mini Haul: Odds and Ends

imageToday I made a little run down over to Target, and Walgreens and just picked up a couple things.

  • My phone case (on the far right) I got off of ebay, but I felt like I needed to include it, it’s just so adorable! :p If you would like to know where I got it let me know 🙂
  • In the middle, Is Simple brand Eye Makeup Remover Liquid from Target. It has a sale sticker on it, it was $8 but I got it for $4.88! I got introduced to this product by triedandtestedblogger, who wrote an amazing review on it, and I thought I would give it a go since I love Simple products. Check back for a a review 🙂
  • To the far left, is Loreal Paris 440 Black Quarts Double Extend Eye Illuminator. I saw this, even though it is meant to enhance brown eyes, thought the gold shimmer mascara end would look amazing. I am really excited to try this mascara, and think it is pretty cool it has a regular mascara on one end and a colored shimmer mascara on the other. I got this for $6 from Walgreens
  • On the top left, I bought the Loreal Paris Infallible Eyeshadow in 337 Endless Sea. I thought this color was gorgeous and would be very pretty for the summer! I have not tried these eye shadows before, but was very excited that they claim to be 24 hour wear! 🙂
  • Lastly, on the top right is the Lip Medex by Blistex. This was just a re-purchase for me, and is the 6th jar of this lip balm I have boughten. I absolutely love the way it feels on my lips! It has a minty tingle and feels so smooth, I definitely recommend this is your lips are feeling a bit sad lately 😛  I got this from Walgreens for $3

Sorry that these items are a bit random, but I figured I would share them with you 🙂 If you guys have any questions feel free to leave them, or want me to write reviews on any of these items and I will get back to you! Thanks so much for reading and love always Pearlsnheels ❤
