Top 5 Tuesday Favorite – Drugstore Mascara !!!

Hey beauty junkies! I’m excited to talk about my Top 5 Tuesday Favorite of the week. It’s the Mascara Edition!!! yay!!!

top 5 tuesday mascara

I always linked mascara as another makeup tool that’s very fun to wear for everday and party time. No doubt that I’m no super duper fan of mascara but I admit that I do have a few which I really really like. I’m particularly more picky when it comes to mascara since I want to wear an eyemakeup that doesn’t irritate and not making my eyes looked like a panda after wearing it the whole day. That would be disasterously embarrassing!

Anyways, I did managed to select 5 of my favorite mascara and they’re not in any particular order.

rimmel mascara

Rimmel Volume Accelerator in 003 Extreme Black (net wt: 0.23 fl oz). It says this mascara has a boosting complex which came with a plumping brush for a remarkably fuller and lusher looking lashes. This one doesnt have a waterproof formula but still make my eyes look fuller no doubt.

I’m wearing it today to show the results I got from applying 2 coats of this volume accelerator. I like it’s because it gives extra volume to my lashes but not lengthening it. It’s basically darken my lashes and makes it look prety and my eyes bigger. Two coats makes lashes look so much prettier.

covergirl mascara

Covergirl Lash Blast Volume waterproof in Very Black. Love this amazing mascara since it has a very sturdy brush/wand that is magical. The bristle are short and it’s able to do the job to make my lashes fuller and it’s waterproof. I don’t usually wear mascara on my bottom lashes but with this brush, I don’t have the problem at all. Formula dries up easily to prevent fall out that makes application messy.

nyc mascara

NYC Show Time Voluminizing mascara in 844 Extreme Black (Net wt: 0.27 fl oz). This mascara I wear when I’m in a rush and believe it or not I can wear it without looking at a mirror. Because the brush is small and the bristle short, I can apply it nearer to my lashlines. Great to wear to go for grocery shoping or for just running daily errands.

hard candy fab

Hard Candy flat to FAB in Blackest Black (net wt: 0.074 oz). I did some reviews on both Hard Candy mascaras in my earlier posting and I’m picking them up as my favorite because I really like them. It’s small but compact. Love the cute brush and the packaging.

hard candy lash

Hard Candy Lashaholic is also in Blackest Black (net wt: 0.063 oz). The brush is pretty much the same as the Covergirl lashblast mascara. These brushes works wonders. I don’t see any fall out or sticky sensation on my lashes. It’s very affordable and I like the texture as well.

Basically, these are all my Top 5 favorite drugstore mascara and I’ll be looking out for more when some of these babes dries out. For now, I’ve been wearing them for many of my makeup look photos and it has been a great experience for me to somehow branches out to mascara. I’m glad I did!

So, there you have it all my Top 5 Tuesday fave. Until next time, have a wonderful day.

What is your favorite drugstore brand mascara?

Thank you again for stopping by.

Top 5 Tuesday Favorites – Simply Red Lipsticks

Happy Tuesday guys! I’m back again with my Top 5 Tuesday Favorites and this week I’m going to write about red lipsticks. Yes!!!! my most favorite color lipsticks. I know we’re only in the fall and winter is yet to come but I’m just thrilled to share some of my red lipsticks today. I’m always on the hunt for a perfect red color lipsticks. They’re bold and beautiful and can definitely lift up appearance and moods. It’s noticeable and have that sexy look of romance.

top 5 tuesday fave - simple red lippes

I have here two high end and three drugstore’s lipsticks to talk about. They’re in no particular order.

From left to right:

Clinique Creamy Nude Soft Shine (03) Long lasting lipstick. The reason I chose this to be my top 5 fave is because I had it for more than 5 years and it’s one of my favorite nude color lipstick I ever found love in. I share this because of the quality and the formula of this lipstick that has not changed over so many years. It’s a real keeper. It glides very smoothly and has medium coverage. It has a soft shine finish which makes lips look moist. There are 11 color shades available and I love the merlot red and watermelon shades. They are all beautiful colors with long lasting wear. It’s selling for $19.00 at Sephora and for that price point, why not.

Sothys Rouge Ardent. My first love of red lipsticks was from wearing this Sothys Red color shade. It has such rich pigmentation and fabulous matte color finish. It feels velvety and it smell awesome. I had this for a decade and since I have found more red favorites I kept it in my collection. The packaging has changed but the color intensity is simply gorgeous. There are many gorgeous colors available at Sothys. Please check on their website if you are interested with their products. Caution when wearing red lipstick – to wear nude lip liner to outline lips to prevent red lipstick from running or bleeding.  And you, do you know Sothys? Do you like their products?

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Matte in Really Red (006). I love, love this chilli red matte lipstick. Yes, it’s matte and I love it. The color might not be as long lasting as the sheen or sheer lipsticks but it still leaves some color stains behind. It doesn’t glide as smoothly but I love the high pigments formula. For a drugstore brand and the pricing, I’m totally going forward everything I used it up. I love this color so much I have another one as backup, just in case (chuckle!!!)

Rimmel Long Lasting Kate Moss in 107. This is also my favorite lip color. It has more berry red than tomatoes red. I found Kate Moss lipsticks awhile ago and so I grabbed one of this due to the velvety finish and beautiful pigmentation. It claims to be long lasting and it lasted me for 3 hours not 8 hours. This 107 color is the color Kate Moss wore on Rimmel’s website. Superb!!

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout Remarqueble (250). The color swatch of this colorburst is totaly amazing. I’m trully blown away by such mattifying balm it provides. Oh wow… a lip balm that’s so moisturizing and had a finish beyond comfort. It’s easy to carry around and easy to apply. No messy business and I like the packaging in a crayon type. It came with 10 dazzling color shades to select. It’s such a fun color to have.

Best 5 Fall Color Lippies

Hi beauty junkies, standing proudly is my 5 favorite fall color lippies. Yay!!! shopping at Target again to get three more lipsticks in a darker shades for fall and also to wear it for halloween.

5 fall color lippies

Normally, I have hard time looking for a dark color lipsticks for fall that will look nice on me. Fortunately, this time round, I seems to be able to find a few which I really like. Is it because I got more brave to try darker colors or maybe there were more color selections available that works for me. Either way, I’m happy to get a few.

These are my Best 5 fall color lippies, from left to right: (not in particular order)

NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors in 511 CHAOS

Revlon Super Matte Lustrous Lipstick in 646 Sultry Sable

Maybelline Color Sensational  in 160 Fifth Ave Fuchsia

L’oreal Color Rich Serum in 503 Bright Burgundy

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 11

I also make the color swatches and see how pigmented and mositurized these beauties. I always love red color lippies but these darker shades really is something else. Let me see how I like it!

nyx lippy

NYX in 311 CHAOS. I love NYX lippies especially with their huge selections of fun colors to choose from. Is the selections jaw-dropping? You bet! This is my second NYX lippies and I’m definitely going for more. Got to get them all! (Pokemon song). I fell in love with its rich pigmentation. Amazingly velvety and creamy texture. Love the color-payoff. It’s soft and glides so smoothly. Ohhhh!!! So incredibly awesome color.

revlon lipstick

Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks are my best friend. I love love, love it. I have many collections of Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks and got hooked by its’ dark plum shade. The color is intensely beautiful. I love the pigmentation and the long wear effect. It’s soft and creamy. So, be dazzled with its dazzling array of fabulous shades. I can’t stop to wanting more colors to be added to my collections.

maybelline lippies

This is my first encounter with Maybelline lipstick. I was amazed by the color shades options. I have another jaw-dropping moment seeing so many shades to choose and when I checked on their website they have but 62 shades, that’s insane! Or well my first purchase. I love other Maybelline makeup products and I always wanted to get the lipsticks. So, now I’m a proud owner of Fifth Ave Fuchsia lippy. Yay!!! The creamy formula is amazing and so is the smell of this lipstick. I wanted to pick a darker color but this one is irresistable. So, instead I got this and have been wearing it the whole day. Will I be hooked with Maybelline’s lippies? Time will tell.

l'oreal lippes

L’oreal lipstick in Bright Burgundy is my next choice of fave. I had L’oreal lippies for ages but this is a new one that I’m going to give it a shot. It says it has serum in this formula. Serum! Don’t feel any different except moist and sheer finish. Is it just me or do I always happened to picked up sheer finish lipstics? Some of you may know that I love creamy and velvety lipsticks. As for sheer, I’ll get around with it. The color in the packaging does looked dark but when I did my color swatch, it looks more nude than burgundy! As for the moisture, you bet it’s moist and I felt it’s a bit tacky at first. It doesn’t have color depth though. This lippy does smells good. It’s be good to wear when the weather gets dryer.

kate moss lippies

Kate Moss lasting lipstick by Rimmel. This No 11 is a special dark red dark lipstick. After admiring myself with this lip color ont he mirro. I do conclude that this color shade look perfect on me. I like it very much especially the velvety texture. It has matte and soft finish. It has a swell fragrant smell on it. It has 10 sexy shades to select. For the price, I will go for more especially with such great value and quality. I like the No 9 too (in violet shade). Perhaps, I’ll pick it up on my next trip to Target.
