Raise The Volume with Yves Saint Laurent | Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Hey boo!

I am so excited to review this product. As you know, I am a mascara freak. I'm normally partial to drugstore mascaras because of, obviously, the price point, but also because they get the job done. Most of the time the job is done a lot better than most high-end mascaras. On the other hand, there are a few exceptions like Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara and Lancome's Hypnose Drama mascara. I loved them both. I'm interested in Diorshow's Iconic Overcurl mascara too. I've heard great things about it.

On a normal day, I bounce back and forth between Rimmel's Lash Accelerator, CoverGirl Lash Bloom, and Physician's Formula's Jumbo Lash mascara. Sometimes I wear all three at the same time to get the effect I want. Do you double or triple up on mascaras to get your desired effect? I want full, thick lashes that are long enough to be seen over my eyeliner. Pet peeve: Winged liner with NO lashes in sight. 

I love falsies, but they can be so irritating and damaging to my lids and natural lashes. I have been on the hunt since my makeup addiction began for that one perfect mascara that gives volume and lengthens exactly the way I want it.

Influenster was kind enough to send me a product that promises to be exactly what I'm looking for...

Ipsy | March 2015 Glam Bag | Floral Fantasy

Hey, boo! It's been forever since I posted about my Ipsy Glam Bag. I'm so happy to have some time and a new camera to create more posts. Anyways, I'm so excited for this month's glam bag. It has this gorgeous sky blue, white, yellow, and pink floral design on the front-reminding me that Spring has finally arrived! Even though it was snowing on Friday... Ugh. Moving. ON.
