Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara ($18) A mascara that give lashes the mineral care they’ve been craving while also delivering big-time volume and the perfect definition. This mascara contains the exclusive NutriPlump™ formula that dramatically plumps lashes up to 600%* for unheard-of thickness, fullness, and flutter. The 100% pure bareMinerals formula is paraben free, clump free, and smudge proof, for lusciously thick lashes with superior volume.
Yay! Another mascara I love. I really like mascara that gives my lashes volume but doesn’t make it look over the top. This is what exactly Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara does. It gives my lashes volume but still allows them to look soft and natural. The mascara goes on thin and allows you to keep layering until you get what you want without your lashes getting clumpy or spidery. Also, it is really black. I love mascaras that are really black! The mascara brush is fat and has a lot of bristles to make sure every one of your lashes gets coated. Another plus is that after a few hours, my lashes still look as good as they did when I first applied the mascara and there were no smudges or flakes. I even wore it while I worked out and still no smudges! Do keep in mind that the Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara isn’t the type of voluminizing mascara that gives your lashes dramatic volume. With that said, I highly recommend the mascara for people who want to add soft, natural looking volume to their lashes.

Stila Forever Your Curl Curl Memory Mascara ($22) A long-wearing mascara that curls lashes instantly and over time. This mascara features innovative lash-curl memory that continually curls lashes throughout the day and a proprietary curling resin that dries down and holds the curl of lashes for long-lasting results. A unique brush coats and extends each individual lash for eye-popping results. Its intense carbon black hue delivers a lush, dramatic lash line from base to tip.
I am sorry to say I did not like Stila Forever Your Curl Curl Memory Mascara. The mascara couldn’t curl my lashes on its own without the help of my trusty eyelash curler. When my lashes were curled, the mascara couldn’t hold a curl for very long. I want to say a couple of hours at tops. Also, after a couple of hours I noticed mascara smudges and flakes underneath my eyes. A big no-no! Some flakes even got into my eyes! Another negative find is it takes forever and a day to dry. I hate trying not to blink while I wait for mascara to dry. And since the mascara has a wet formula, it makes layering difficult because it makes your lashes look spikey and a bit goopey. A good thing about the Stila Forever Your Curl Curl Memory Mascara is that it does separate lashes and add a bit of length. Although, the lengthening could have been just an illusion because it darkened my lashes. Sadly, there are not enough positives to cancel out all the negatives.

A-ma-zing! The Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover is truly an instant nail polish remover. It even removes glitter nail polish like it’s nothing. Besides being an amazing nail polish remover, it’s quite different from your usually nail polish remover. Instead of pouring out the remover or pumping it out, you actually stick your fingers into the bottle! You wipe the nail polish off onto the sponge inside the bottle that is soaked with nail polish remover. Viola! The polish is gone within seconds. Neat huh? It also doesn’t dry out your skin or have an over powering scent. I just wish it wasn’t so pricey. $9.50 for 2.5 oz is a lot to me. But I’ll bite the bullet because I love it so much.
