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 ❤

Want bigger brighter looking eyes? Try out L.A colors eye pencil in Sea Shells. Not only is it a great cheaper dupe for Nyx’s milk, you can find it at Walgreens for $2. I absolutely Love this eye pencil, it really finishes off the look by enhancing the white in my eyes, and opening my eyes up! Let me know if you guys use white in  your waterline to enhance your eyes, and what makeup products you use! Thanks for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels

Want The Look? Green Liquid Eyeliner.

IMG_20130624_162310

Like the Look? Something as simple as green liquid liner above the lid, can really change up your everyday makeup look. Especially since I have green eyes, this green liner really makes my natural iris color stand out in the light. If you have blue eyes, I would suggest a brown liquid liner, for grey eyes a blue, and purple can work for brown and green eyes! There are lots of colorful liquid eyeliners out there but the one I used for this look is particularly one of my favorites; Milani Infinite Liquid Liner in 03 Eternal. This one is not very expensive and you can find it at CVS for around $6. Also, to finish off the look I put a white cream eyeshadow stick in white, on my waterline. This trick really opens and brightens up your eye. The white color stick I used is L.A Colors Jumbo Eye Pencil in Sea Shells, this one is a GREAT dupe for NYX eye pencil in milk, and is only $2, I got mine from Walgreens. Lastly, I curled my lashes with my Elf eyelash curler from Target I got for $1, and applied my favorite Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara in 301 Black, which is also from Walgreens for $3. (I have a full review of this mascara on my blog)

This is a great look for everyday, if you just want to spice things up! If you guys would like more “Get The Look” posts, let me know! Please comment with your opinions on this look, or what makeup you use to make your eye color pop!  Please remember to like for more good stuff, and follow me for more lovin’!

Wet N’ Wild Fergie Highlighter: Better than High end shimmer?

ResizedImage_1372313858043

Want to look dewy? Want to glow like Cinderella on the night of the ball, But you don’t have a rich prince to buy it for you? Here is a great drugstore option you can buy right at Walgreens for $5. I was a bit skeptical at first, I was trying to figure out whether or not to spend the money at Sephora on an expensive highlighter the  like Two Faced Candlelight one. So I decided to give this one a try, after seeing it in the new section for Wet N’ Wild. The shimmer highlight palette comes in three different shades: Carnival In Rio, Rose Golden Goddess, and I got the last one Rose Champagne Glow.

I was really excited to pop home and try it out! After applying my foundation and setting powder I applied this with an angled brush to the party of my face that gets hit by sunlight the most: Middle of my forehead, apples of my cheeks, above my top lip, and down the bride of my nose. Applying a highlight in these areas will have different benefits to the overall look of the face just as a bronzer would. A highlight on the apple of the cheeks give an illusion of higher cheekbones. Shimmer down the bridge of the nose elongates the nose and makes it seem slimmer. A dab of this highlighter above the top lip, give the impression of fuller lips.

To my surprise this budget savvy wonder, looked amazing with my skin tone, and really worked just as great as all the other high end  shimmer products! The formula of this palette is not sparkly, but adds the perfect amount of glow to my face for a healthy dewy look. I have fallen in love with this, and would definitely suggest it to anyone in look of a cheap highlighter that really does the job! Well done Wet N’ Wild, and Ms. Fergie.

An Amazing Mascara: Jordana Best Lash Extreme

300

The other day, after watching numerous beauty gurus raving about this mascara, I decided to go out to my local Walgreens and give it a try! I purchased this mascara for only $2.99, and obviously was very pleased with the price. Once getting home, I curled my lashes, and applied two coats of this bad boy and was ecstatic about the results! Here is a picture to the left of my eyelashes done up with this mascara. It is amazing, I would say it is more of a lengthening mascara as a pose to a volumizing one. I also love that it is a soft fiber mascara wand instead of a prickly plastic wand, that tends to irritate my eyes. This mascara goes on smooth and clump free. I honestly can say I have found my new favorite mascara of all time, and I didn’t have to but it from MAC or Nars for $50! lol

This mascara can be bought at any Walgreens for $2.99 in shade 301 Black.

I definitely suggest this mascara, and hope you guys give it a try. Let me know as well what your thought on it are! Below you can find the site to access Jordana cosmetics.
