It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

It Cosmetics mascara

These mascara names are getting longer and longer. It cracks me up. Any It Cosmetics fans in the house? Do yourself a favor and try their brushes. You know I am soooo for drugstore brushes (hey EcoTools!) but it’s hard not to spend my entire paycheck on their brushes. They’re just that fabulous.

Oh yeah…you came here for a review of the It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. Not their brushes.

Onward, we go. Please don’t laugh at my pictures. I tried to make them all funky and look comic book’y. Work with me here, dear friends.

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara review

Marc Jacobs mascara

Yeeeep, that’s a mouthful, ain’t it? I don’t think I’ve ever featured Marc Jacobs anything on Clumps of Mascara and is a darn shame, because I actually really like the brand. Their nail polishes are absolutely wonderful. Granted, it’s the packaging that I go gaga over, but shoot…I love me a higher-end brand that makes me feel all fancy when I’m using their products. Marc Jacobs is IT.

That said, I had been meaning to try this mascara for quite some time and I finally swooped by Sephora a month ago to test drive it. Like many higher-end mascaras, I had high hopes for it because well, it’s a $26 mascara. You’d have high hopes for it too, am I right?

Revlon Ultimate All-In-One mascara review

Revlon Ultimate All-In-One

I hate Revlon mascaras. Yeah, I said it. I know it’s pretty risky making such a claim about a brand as big as them but I’ve reviewed so many of their mascaras and most, if not ALL of them have sucked. I purchased their Revlon Ultimate All-In-One mascara only because a friend of mine wanted to get my thoughts on it. My expectations were anything but high so mmmm, let’s see if this mascara turned me into a believer.

Self Care Matters – Amope Pedi Perfect for the Win!

This post was sponsored by Amopé™ as part of an influencer activation for the #AmopeCrowd and Socialstars™. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, but all opinions are my own.

 Self-Care Matters

Girl, listen. Can we have a chat? You know, sister to sister? Let me keep it real with you. You don’t mind, do you? It’s a struggle. By “it”, I mean…almost everything. I look at where my life was 5, 6 and 7 years ago and I chuckle at how I used to complain about the little things. I wouldn’t mind some of those stresses now. I’d trade them for my current ones in a heartbeat.

Smashbox X-Rated Mascara review

I looooooove Smashbox. They’re one of my favorite brands. They’re one of those brands that has spectacular products but they aren’t all in your face about it. No showy advertisements, annoying endorsements or frills from these folx. Nope. They keep it simple. Great products. The end. I purchased this mascara some weeks back because it has literally been calling my name for, ooooh, I don’t know…some months now. And I’ve got HIGH expectations for this Smashbox X-Rated mascara. Yes sir, I do.

Zoya Whispers nail polish collection

Zoya Whispers Collection

Ohmigoodness, Zoya. I feel like it has been foreeeeever since I’ve played around with some of their polishes. I got the Whispers collection to review and I was more than excited about it. I love how Zoya has these Transitional nail polish collections. Granted you can wear WHATEVER color you want but for those true nail polish aficionados than want something special in Fall/Winter shades and Spring shades, a collection like Whispers is IT.

Review of Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

MAYBELLINE VOLUM’ EXPRESS FALSIES PUSH UP DRAMA

I’m too embarrassed to look back at when my last mascara review was. Like, so ashamed, y’all. Many of you found me because of my mascara reviews so at the very least, I should keep up with them, right? *snort* So while I can’t crank out a review each week, I’ll be shooting you at least 1 drugstore mascara review and 1 higher end mascara review a month. How’s that?

And if by chance I can give you more, then…heyyyyy!
