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.

Hard Candy ~ Lip Plumper & Mascara

Good morning beauties!

Recently, I have this huge pang of excitement with mascara which I don’t usually a big fan of. I have a crush on these amazing mascara by Hard Candy at Wal-mart.

These adorable, shinny packaging mascaras drove me to get them. Which I did. yay!


From Top to bottom: Plumping Serum Volumizing lip gloss in 0.04 oz

Lashaholic Super Volume mascara in 0.068 oz on Blackest Black

Flat to FAB mascara in 0.074 oz on Blackest Black

Very affordable price and I like the way the brush works on my eye lashes. Each different brushes have its own function. I love the uniqueness of these brushes.

It said that this Lashaholic mascara works to volumize, thicken and lengthen the lashes with it’s elogated brush that separate and  define every lash to create the baddest lash ever.

The Flat to Fab provides instant curling sexy lashes. Smudge free. Love the brush that scrupt and help lift up each lash with precise definition. I’m totally in love with it since my eye lashes are short not not curly so this mascara really helps makes my eyes more pretty.

Lastly, the lip Plumping Serum. I’m not so sure about this plumping serum to be honest. This is my first time trying it. Reason been that when I applied it my lips feels like burning or stingy sensation. I used it twice just to confirm my first reaction to it. Well, it does sting a little. I did feel that my lips are a little puff up but not for too long. After the stingy left, so were the puff.

I did some readings on this topic and it seems that almost all lip plumper  contained a certain ingredient for example cinnamon oil, hot pepper or even menthol that will intentionally irriate the lips and make them swell  thus giving the plumping appearance.

For those of you who loves to have more plumper lips, it seems this can be your answer for plumper lips. But hey, for me I think I will stick with my good old lips, the old fashion way.

I hope you guys find this post interesting and helpful.
