Review | tre’StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon | Chili Red

tre'StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon

When this lip pencil arrived in an Ipsy bag back in November I thought, “Good job sending me a lipstick without the cap guys.” My second thought asked who or what this brand was, I had never heard of them. My third thought hoped that there wasn’t red lipstick all over the inside of the cute Ipsy bag. Safe to say I was not impressed, but there is a reason we don’t always go by first impressions. Continue reading

Review | Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara

I have a confession to make: high end mascaras do not get my engine going. It is not that I am a drugstore snob but I cannot justify spending a gas tank’s worth of money on a tube of mascara. Especially now that I know how to apply falsies and mascara is merely a formality. So when Ipsy included the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara in my bag a few months back, I was pretty happy.

Moscato and Mascara is one post away from inadvertently making it nail polish week, apologies.

Review | IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes

IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes

Here is something different for my blog: a high end product. Nothing against high end products but I’m more of a drugstore girl and when I received an IT Cosmetics product in my IPSY bag a while back, I was a little excited. Adding to that excitement was the fact that the product was a mascara! But was my excitement warranted? Continue reading

Review | Elizabeth Mott Queen of the Fill

Elizabeth Mott Queen of the Fill

This month, more than previous months, I am challenging myself to shop my stash more. In previous months I was buying so many new things and trying them as I bought them so this month I’m trying to properly use said products. One of them is this tinted eyebrow gel that I will share with you today and with which I have an on-and-off relationship with. Continue reading
