A Little Glitter and Some Lashes

Thursday, February 27, 2014

One of my favorite things to do is try out new beauty products, especially makeup, so when Beauty Box 5 contacted me and asked me about sampling some of their products of course I agreed! February's BB5 rocked, you can read more about that here.

I was sent Bellapierre's Cosmetic Glitter in Light Pink, Elizabeth Mott It's So Big Mascara and H.Wood.Lips Lip Shine in Rose.

For your viewing pleasure, I tried out the cosmetic glitter and the mascara. One day soon I hope to share with you the rose colored lipstick, but it's more of a spring color so we will wait on the weather to warm up.

I can seriously use all the help I can get when it comes to my lashes, I mean just look at the below before picture. There really isn't much length there at all. so when I see a mascara called It's So Big, I'm all about checking it out.

In order to really achieve the super results that I prefer when it comes to mascara, I applied three coats. My trick is to "saw" the mascara brush on your lashes to be sure you really get coverage on each individual lash. While I do wish my lashes were covered more with just one coat, I do appreciate that even after three coats of It's So Big mascara that I didn't look like tarantula eyes (who remembers that commercial - that was high school for me!). The after picture is below.

In both my before and after pictures, you can see that I applied the Bellapierre Cosmetic Glitter to my eyes. What I really liked about this product is that it wasn't overpowering. While I did kind of feel like a teenager getting ready for my first Britney Spears concert, I actually liked adding a little sparkle to my normal eye shadow routine. (To see my eye shadow tutorial, check out this link) Because of the color of the glitter in the packaging, I fully expected to have a very hot pink eye shadow look. I was pleasantly surprised to not! One thing I realized when using the glitter, is that it actually kind of toned down my brown eye shadow. That's a great trick if you think you applied too much color, just add the Bellapierre Cosmetic Glitter to tone down your color and glam up your eyes.

Have you ever used either of these products? How do you feel about glitter? What do you look for in a mascara? I'd love to know your answers so leave me a comment below.
