Mommy, Me, & Maybelline

Mommy, me, and  maybelline 2

It’s Mother’s Day here in the U.S. The day of pastels, and lilies, and lots and lots of massive, heart-shaped cards entitled I love you THIS much! 

It was a lovely coincidence that I was sent a foundation too dark for my skin tone.

In true Mommy-Spirit, my mom graciously sat and smiled as I fluttered around her, dabbing, and spraying, and wiping. It got dicey when we came to mascara. But the foundation was definitely the star of the show.

Spring Pinks | Drugstore Makeup Tutorial

I almost called this post “Pink Eye.” Aren’t you glad I didn’t?

Dodged that bullet.

Filming Vlogmas last Christmas instilled a YouTube passion in me. With spring colors (and an easy makeup look even I can’t mess up), the time has come—*dramatic pause*—for me to conquer—*second dramatic pause*—my first makeup tutorial.

It has just occurred to me how close we are to Christmas.

It has just occurred to me that it’s Vlogmas #8!

Vlogmas 8? I’ve been Vlogging for more than a week! Eight days! Two more, and I’ll be up to 10 days.

Math.

REAL TALK: Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara Reviews

Real talk Maybelline Lash sensational mascara review

First, I’m sorry to the half dozen men/boys who read my blog—you guys are great! But I have returned with back-to-back girly content. I have no control over it. I am merely slightly peeved. Not ticked. Not to the point of ranting.

But wrongs have been done. And I need to right these wrongs.

Like Batman.

It has to do with the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara reviews I’ve read. And possibly the fact that I am makeup challenged, but mostly, I blame the reviews.

Now, the mascara is great, but everyone misses one tiny issue.

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Review

I, like many other girls, have a problem. I admit to it the same way I’ll admit to liking not cleaning my room and drinking coffee.

I like makeup. I enjoy makeup. I currently am wearing makeup.

A lot of my money is invested in this hobby.

Recently, I found myself in the makeup isle at Target. Total coincidence. Very, clip-clop-clip-clop GASP! ‘Oh golly, however did I end up here?’

Then I wander the isles with my broke self, poking at the devil’s tummy to tempt me with something good.

NYX tried to allure me into a $7 eyeliner. And then my eyes fell on the Maybelline display. In all it’s pink chrome glory.

It's so beautiful

Target Haul (Justified. . )

Target haul 1 Justified

For Christmas, my uncle gave me a Target gift card.

You may be thinking that I did a haul not too long ago and are now judging me for my materialistic ways and lack of money savings.

But any shopaholic knows that buying something with a gift card isn’t really spending money and it’s a gift, hence I’m justified. That was easy logic.

Thank you, Tio, for the gift card. Now let me show you guys what I bought!
