Beauty Products with Cute Packaging That Suck Volume 1: Mascara

A couple of months ago I purchased Covergirl’s Total Tease Waterproof mascara in “very black”. To my knowledge it is a fairly new product and I’ve always purchased Covergirl mascaras in the past due to its affordability. I’m not a huge fan of high-end mascaras, drugstore usually gets the job done. This may sound a little weird to some of you but what initially drew me to this product was the handle of the wand, it kind of reminds of a unicorn’s horn and it’s pink so, hello. However, when I tried it out for the first time I was not impressed.

Keep in mind, I have very long lashes that NEVER CURL. They have a mind of their own and always stick straight out, so I’m used to finding “fail” mascaras. What I’m trying to say is that I was low-key expecting my upper lashes to be clumpy and look like spider legs, but this mascara’s brush has bristles on each side, with one specifically for the lower lashes. What turned me off completely from Covergirl’s Total Tease mascara is that when I applied the product to my lower lashes it was very messy and got everywhere, even when I just used the regular side of the brush. Lastly, throughout the day it was running and smearing, even when I set my under eyes with concealer and powder.

What to Rock in Spring 2016

 

According to Pantone, Rose Quartz and Serenity are the colors of the season this spring.

Rose Q & Serenity

Can you say cotton candy? Honestly, I absolutely love it! So, for spring 2016, a great way to represent these two gorgeous shades is by incorporating pieces like the ones shown below into your wardrobe.

Fashion R&S 3

Moving along, it is still all about the lips this year, thanks to Miss Kylie Jenner. A great way to pull any look together while sporting the colors Rose Quartz and Serenity, is to add a matte nude lip. It is absolutely gorgeous and subtle, which is perfect for this time of the year.

Also, depending on where you live the weather is starting to get a little warmer. A good beauty hack to keep the hair out of your face and off your shoulders is a cute braid or two. I have been seeing them everywhere, my favorite one is the dutch braid.

Shoes! We can’t forget the shoes, they are everybody’s best friend. Any sandal that laces up, is strappy, or has a chunky platform is on trend. I must say it is a little retro, I definitely get a 90’s vibe from the Platform Ankle Strap Sandals in the picture below. Once again, I absolutely love it and I will definitely be “rocking” a pair once it gets hotter.

Happy Spring!!!
