Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara Review


Now simply, I freaking love this mascara.

 I wear glasses all day every day so I don't like mascaras that lengthen my lashes, as they would touch my glasses' lenses and my lashes are quite long any way, but I do love volume. This mascara does't have the name "falsies" on it like Maybelline's actual mascara that is meant to give the false lash effect, but these do not give the full false lash effect. I adore the falsies mascara, great for dramatic eye looks as well as simple one, but just to add an extra "umph" ( ? )Yes  okay but I freakin love the big eyes mascara  It doesn't clump, it stays on nicely all day and I went swimming with this on and it did not smear! 10 out 10 stars!

Sold at Target and other cosmetic stores that sell Maybelline Products

Sells between 7.00 to 10.00 depending on where you go.

Purple side of packaging as a brush meant for top lashes and the black side has a brush meant for bottom lashes. Both are fantastic!

:) Thanks for reading!

Below are some photos of me with the mascara on, please note i do in fact realise my eyeballs are weird. And I only have the mascara on my top lashes as my bottom ones are already quite long, i don't apply mascara there unless I am wearing a smokey eye look.

Drugstore BB Creams: Maybelline, Revlon, and L'Oreal

BB creams have been popular for some time now, and there are many reviews about which ones are actually good and so on. One of my polyvore friends asked me to do a post about some inexpensive bb creams and review them.

I am also going to be explaining each BB cream on different days, so there might be some difference in how much information there is.


So without further ado, the first BB cream I tested was Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream in Pale.

-light coverage
-not the best color range, especially for fair people (like myself, i found the lightest shade to be a tad too light, and the medium to be too dark; i believe there are only 3 shades)
-affordable price: at Target it sells for $9.00

-I have dry skin, and I had heard of this BB cream from youtube beauty guru Missglamorazzi, who has oily skin. This BB cream, I think, would be better for people who have oily skin. This product did a good job at evening out my skin, toning down the redness, and is actually a nice BB cream to use on days when you don't feel the need to put on foundation.

-Although its a good BB cream and I will continue to use it, I do need to powder my face after I apply it as I always do with any foundation, but for this specific product I tend to get a bit more oily in my t-zone area.

4/5 rating


Maybelline BB Cream $7-8

-Little to no coverage

-smells like sunscreen

-didn't stay on all day

will not be repurchasing


L'Oreal Magic. roughly $10-11

Not my favorite of the three. The shade range is very pour and it doesn't stay on all day.

-Light coverage

-Does not make skin feel nice/smooth



Overall, I like both Revlon and Maybelline but I feel Revlon did a bit better job overall.

thanks for reading!!

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Polish Review

A quick review since its 12:15 am and theres not much too say about this product except thats is pretty awesome.

I bought the color, "Ionic Indigo" which isn't really indigo but really really blue. Surprisingly, its was pretty inexpensive: at Target it is sold for $5. 

The magnetic look is super cool and unique. The key thing you have to remember is to put all your focus on painting your nails with this certain nail polish. I was watching Pretty Little Liars so I wasn't completely focused. I got the left hand perfect, since I am right handed, but the right didn't turn out has great. Only because of me, not the nail polish. 

The other key thing to remember is to read the instructions printed on the bottle. Simply, paint one nice, even coat on all nails you want painted. Then, when dried, paint a thick coat on one nail at a time, after painting a thick coat, immediately place the magnet above the nail, resting it on your finger. 

( I painted my entire left hand, let it dry, then painted it again like the directions said, and place the magnet right over my nail, resting the little stump on my finger, then after that dried i moved onto my right hand).

Overall, is this product worth the investment? Hell Yes!
