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.

The Ultimate Beauty Bag of Luxury Makeup

Luxury Makeup

Ahhhhh, luxury makeup. They call me an enabler. I’ll be that. I will be that friend that encourages you to buy another red lipstick even though you already have 14. I am the gal pal that sends you recommendations when you’re stumped in the middle of Sephora. I got you, baby. I am here for you. And these items? I’m thinking you should grab one or two or you know, at least 5 pieces from this luxury makeup list. You’ll thank me later. 

I promise. 

Now don’t get all huffy and puffy on me. Some of these items are a bit on the pricey side. I know, girl, I know. Hey! Some of us save our pennies to invest in the finer things in life. Prefer only drugstore picks? No problema. I’ll have something for you frugalistas later down the line. But for now…it’s all about that luxe life.

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.

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!

5 Tips For Ladies Getting Started In Makeup 

I love getting small gifts from friends, family and co-workers, but as a woman, those gifts tend to be either makeup or bath gift sets. Now that I think about it, I’m not sure if they’re trying to tell me something with those gifts or not. Anyway, if you’ve never really used makeup, you might be wondering what you’re supposed to do with 30 different colors of eyeshadow or 15 different shades of lip gloss.

No worries, I’m about to share with you the five best tips I received when I first started using makeup. Trust me, they make life much easier and your makeup will look amazing when you’re done.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara review

Maybelline Lash Sensational

Yaaaay! The chick who has a blog about mascaras is finally doing a mascara review. Finally, right? Woot! During my hiatus, I was pretty ghost in the mascara exploring department. I pretty much wore the same thing ALL the time. Urban Decay’s Perversion mascara. But a few weeks ago, I finally got into the groove of things and Maybelline’s Lash Sensational mascara called my name. And so I purchased it! 

I spotted this baby at Target and packaging-wise, it looks like…you know, Maybelline’s other 28,000 mascaras. But that wand. The wand sold me!
