Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash | Demo

Hey guys! I got a deluxe sample of the new Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash mascara. It comes out February 27, 2015 and can be purchased at Sephora, Ulta, and Benefit Cosmetics. This mascara retails for $24 and claims to give length, volume, curl, lasting power, ink black color, and lash conditioning ingredients. 
I personally love this mascara waaaayyyy better than Benefit They're Real. I wasn't too huge of a fan of that one. So if They're Real didn't really cut it for you either, try out this one! I most likely won't be purchasing the full size one as of yet. Depends on how the life of the deluxe sample goes. If I really like it after the sample, I will purchase it. If not, then my search for my perfect mascara will continue!

Three Steps for Soft Lips

It's so important to take care of your lips, no matter what season we are in. These three easy steps will keep your lips looking soft and healthy!

Step 1: Exfoliate
I like to use LUSH Mint Julep lip scrub or The Kiss (LE for Valentine's Day). You can also use a toothbrush in you are in a rush.
Step 2: Moisturize
I have two favorites right now: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask and Neosporin Overnight Renewal Therapy.
Step 3: Hydrate
Drink LOTS of water. Not only will it help your lips, but it will be beneficial to your skin as well!

Two Valentine's Day Looks | Date Night and Girl's Night Out

Date Night
 I think date night makeup should be soft, pretty, and romantic. You want to enhance your natural beauty. 
I used the Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette. 
I placed Salted Caramel in the crease, Strawberry Bon Bon on the eyelids, Candied Violet in the outer third of my eye, Semisweet in my crease and upper lash line, Marzipan on the eyelid, and White Chocolate in my inner corner and brow bone.
I created a very thin and small winged look with the Kat von D Tattoo Liner. For mascara, I used Lancome Hynose Drama on the top lashes and It Cosmetics Tightline Full Lash mascara on my bottom lashes.
For lips, I lined them with Rimmel Eastend Snob liner, and used the L'Oreal Julianne's Nude lipstick, and topped it with NYX Creme Brûlée butter lip gloss.

Girl's Night Out
 When I think of a girl's night out, I want my makeup to be a little more bold and fun!
I used my Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette for this look. I took Nougat into the crease and placed Bon Bon on my eyelid. Next, I used Puddin' in my crease and took it down to my upper lash line for definition. Next, I took Butter Pecan and placed it on the eyelid. Underneath my brow bone I placed Coconut Creme. For a pop of color, I lined my lower lash line with Blueberry Swirl. Finally, I took Licorice and created a cat eye with it.
For mascara, I used the Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara on the top lashes and the It Cosmetics Tightline Full Lash mascara on my bottom lashes.
For lips I used Maybelline Lust for Blush matte lipstick and topped that with Milani Sweet Grapefruit lipgloss.

 Will you be going on a date or having a girl's night out on Valentine's Day?

L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation | First Impression and Demo

Happy New Year my Charmers! Hope you had a fantastic start to the new year. I recently picked up the new L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24 Hour foundation in the shade 101 Classic Ivory. It was at my local CVS for $13. Some stores have them out already, but official launch of the new line is set for sometime in January.

It claims to provide a light weight, medium coverage with a demi-matte finish for 24 hours. After experimentation, I did find the foundation to be light weight, have medium-full coverage and was mostly matte on me. It began to become demi-matte after 6 hours of wear. I had the foundation on for a total of 12 hours and only blotted once, after 6 hours. The foundation held up really well in my opinion. I personally don't think it will last 24 hours, but for 12 hours, it did wonderful.

I think this foundation is a great option for normal to oily skin. Dry skin may find it a bit uncomfortable as it does cling to dry patches, but if you moisturize prior to application, I think it would look great.
