Hey Loves. Lately I've mentioned my new love for NYX Matte Lip Creams in posts including my March beauty Faves. Since stopping by Target today and buying a few more I wanted to share with you the ones I have so far. At $9 each I think they are on the expensive side for the size of the product but I think they are totally worth it. I only have 3 more to get before I've bought all the shades carried near me.

HARD CANDY 1,000 Lash Primer - Review

Back again with a product review lovelies. Tonight I'm going to share my thoughts on the HARD CANDY 1,000 Fiberized Lash Weave Primer. This is a product I've bought many times before so you already know I am fond of it here is why.

It may not be everyone's favorite look but I love my lashes to have a ton of volume (and length) and I have absolutely no problem sporting some spidery lashes. This products helps create fuller looking lashes with its white fiber base. By applying this as a primer with a coat of regular mascara on top its like apply 3 or more coats of regular mascara. I find the white is covered easy with just one coat of black mascara and also removes just like any other non water proof mascara. I paid $5.98 for this at Walmart where it also comes in black as well.

2 Coats of Regular Mascara ( Buxom Lash)

Hello Loves. Today was a pretty exciting shopping day for me. Not only did I get to go to Target for the first time in years and checked out brands I've never seen in person (in a display) before like Sonia Kashuk and NYX. I was in heaven lol. Sadly I didn't have a ton of time so I only grabbed a few things. I also headed to Walmart after hearing Real Techniques brushes were now being sold there. They didn't carry individual brushes but I couldn't resist buying all 3 sets. Still on the hunt for the RT brush I really want the Fine Liner brush. 

RIMMEL Lash & Brow Accelerator Serum
NYX is more expensive here in Canada but it is better not to have to pay shipping as well. The Soft Matte Lip Creams were $8.99 ($6 US) and the Jumbo Pencil was $5.99 ($4.50).

I'm in Love with this Face Cream

Hi Lovelies. Tonight I wanted to introduce you to the best moisturizer I have ever used, a holly grail product for me. Biotherm Aquasource for Dry Skin is simply amazing. It claims to deliver long lasting hydration with its Paraben/Mineral oil free gel texture lotion. It lives up to that claim better then any face cream I have ever used. 

This amount is enough to moisturize my face and down my neck. 
About my skin and experience with this product -
I need to start off by saying I have suffered from eczema on my legs since I was about 4 and as I came into adult hood I get patches here and there including on my face. A few weeks back I had a stubborn patch appear in my eyebrow/forehead area that nothing was helping. Off to Shoppers I went and was told this was especially targeted for very dry skin. After paying the $45 price tag I brought this home, washed off my make-up and gave it a go.  I'm being one hundred percent honest when I say all the red, dry flaking skin was all better by morning. I have been using this product every night and day. My skin is soft, silky, radiant and flake free even my pores look better. 

$45 Cnd for 50 ml.
I will be repurchasing this products again and again:)

Loving Lush Lashes

Hello Loves. Even before I was make-up obsessed I was lash crazy. Not only do I feel the need to try every new mascara looking for ones that will make my lashes look fuller and longer but Im into helping them grow and stay strong. Here are the products I love using from Removers to Mascaras.

Keeping them Strong
*I use Sephora Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover every night with out fail. It not removes everything without irritating my eyes but the olive extracts really does strengthen my lashes. I barely ever see any eye lashes fall out when using this product.
*Another product that actually helps is Eye Booster Liners by Physicians Formula. I apply the clear one every night and the black one sometimes during the day. Within the first 2 weeks of using these I had new eye lashes growing in spots I hadn't before.
*The last product is a new one.  Rimmel Volume Accelerator. It says it helps grow lashes in 30 days. Not sure about that yet but I do love the way it makes lashes look.
2 coats of Rimmel Volume Accelerator 
Favorite Mascara Combo
Ok Im one for layering mascara. Sometimes up to 5 at one time. For day to day I like wearing Buxom Lash under L'oreal Voluminous Carbon black. Great mascaras on there own but even better together.
I usually curl and comb between layers but applied it quickly for this post
Faking it 
I also love fake lashes for a night out (too lazy to apply them every day) my favorite lashes to use are the shorter fuller styles. I find these ones harder to find but I like the look of them.
