10 Products I Regret Buying:(

Hello Loves. Here is the second post of my 10 Series, 10 Products I Regret Buying. These products may work for you and some did for me when I first tried them but they don't work for me now. If you have any of these and have any tips/tricks let me know:)

1. Revlon Lip Butters - I own so many but use them so rarely. The lighter shades are patchy and the berry/reds bleed on me like crazy.

2. MAC Boyfriend Stealer Lipstick - You all know I love my MAC lipsticks but this one is strange. When applied the color only shows on the outside of my lips like I drew on purple lip liner.

3. NYX Eyeshadow Base - Great for making eye lids look even but a few hours later my lids are super creased (my lids are oily though).

4. Revlon Nearly Naked Powder - I know many love this powder, for me no matter what brush I use it makes my foundation look caked on. Alone it looks too powdery.

5. Benefit dr. feelgood - I thought this balm would make a smooth base for my foundation but whether worn on top or under make-up it doesn't work out. Make-up balls up when using this product.

6. Smashbox Primer - My skin has break outs when I use it. enough said!!

7. Eve Pearl Dual Salmon Concealer - Not saying this is a bad product I just cant get it to blend out right whether Im using a brush or my fingers.

8. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush - I actually liked these blushes when I first bought them but after using other cream blushes I find these ones dont have the best color pay off.

9. Maybelline Master duo Eye Liner - No matter how much I shake this liner it comes out watery, patchy and almost colorless. Maybe the black is better.

10. Sonia Kashuk Brow Kit - I love the fact this set has a shade that works well for brunettes, blondes and reds but the formula doesn't work. They are cream products that don't show well and feel almost greasy when applied.

TOP 10 Re-Purchased Products (High End Edition)

Hello Dolls, I have actually found the time and motivation to write up quite a few new Posts. Yay!! This will be a first in my series of Tens Posts. 10 loves, 10 hates, 10 essentials you get the point right loves. 

Here are my Top 10 Re-purchased Products (Highend edition).

1. Benefit Erase Paste - I used this concealer for years and recently rediscovered my love for it. The peachy tone (light shade) conceals and corrects nicely.
2. Bobbi Brown Corrector - The light Bisque shade gives that little bit extra help I need some days to conceal the issues being an insomniac causes.
3. MAC NSF Natural Powder - I keep going back to this product over and over again. 
4. NARS Laguna - Amazing bronzing powder that is the perfect shade for me right now. A tad dark when I'm winter pale but with a light hand it still works then.
5. NARS Blushes - I love the quality and color selection of these wonderful Blushes. Two I have been reaching for a lot are Torrid & Orgasm (once again:) )
6. Benefit Browzing - I went back to this one lately because my hair is now light again - Blond highlights.
7. MAC Lipsticks - I just adore MAC Lipsticks and I am drawn to the Lipstick display every time I pass by a MAC shop. Love Vegas Volt right now.
8. DIOR Lip Glow Balm - Very moisturizing, glossy and a perfect pink tint.
9. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - Ive said it before but this little palette is essential in my make-up bag. Great all over lid, highlights and crease shades, as well as colors I use for my brows and as eye liners. 
10. MAC Paint Pot in Ground Work - wonderful base under shadows esp shades from the above palette or used as a quick wash of color.

Hope you stop by tomorrow to see the 10 Products That Didnt Work for Me:)

MAC Flamingo Lipstick

Hey Loves. I know I usually review lipsticks on my other blog but I was having technical difficulties so here I am writing this post on my original blog. I was doing a little shopping last week and stopped my MAC to see the new collections. I fell for the All About Orange Collection but only allowed myself 1 purchase. I went with this Lipstick and love it.

This beautiful lipstick looks orange in the tube but comes off more pink when worn/swatched. Its a Luster finish so if your afraid of color the sheer glossy finish is easy to wear. I really want the other shades in this collection too.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments

Hello Loves I'm back again with another new product review. The other day when I picked up the new Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara (reviewed on yesterdays post) I saw these in the same display. I picked up 4 for a Birthday box I'm sending to a friend and 2 for myself. 

The Good:
* Beautiful shimmering colors from champagnes to bright blues.
* Incredibly pigmented
* I experienced no fall out when using a flat shadow brush
* Applies smooth and even with out being patchy

The Bad:
* Could be cheaper for the amount of product you get 0.05oz/$10
* Doesn't last all day on me (no primer/oily eye lids)

MAYBELLINE The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara

Hey Loves I've missed you all. Im here tonight with a review on a new mascara that I came across today. I think its a brilliant idea for someone like me who wears mascara on the top and bottom. 

The Falsies Big Eyes
Like I mentioned above I do think this is a fantastic idea. To have the right size brushes and formula to apply mascara on the top and bottom lash all in one system, wonderful. 
Top Mascara - The wet formula (brand new) really did lift my lashes up, opening my eyes. It was a little clumpy but I can fix that with a quick comb through. I did like the fact you can get noticeable results with just 1 coat.
Bottom Mascara - This is my favorite side of this mascara tube. The little brush is great for getting all the bottom and top/corner lashes. The bottom brush also seems to get scraped better when you pulled it out to get the perfect amount of formula on the brush.

The only thing thats a down sides I found was the fact I couldn't find a waterproof version (yet). I will be buying this one again. Another great Falsies mascara.
