Spotted: Cover Girl Bombshell Volume Mascara & Intensity Liner

Usually the CVS in my area doesn't get any new make up products until much later, so I was pretty surprised when I walked in to see the new Bombshell mascara and liner from Cover Girl

Out Of The Box: L'oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

A while ago, I found out on L'oreal's website that they were coming out with a new mascara with a innovative wand called the Butterfly mascara. Once I saw the comb-like brush, I knew that I had to try it out.
So how did it work out for me? Keep reading to find out!

My Top 5 Lip Balms

If you didn't know, I'm slightly obsessed with lip balms. I have so many in my makeup drawer, in my purse, on my desk, etc. They're everywhere! But for some reason, regardless of how many I have, I always find a reason to get a new/different one. I mean, I need it... right?

So out of the sea of lip balms, which ones made it to my top 5? Find out after the jump!

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream!

I love BB cream, so naturally I was ecstatic when I found out I'd be getting this in my Sunkissed VoxBox from Influenster. I like Olay products too, so that was an added bonus.
The shade I got is in Light to Medium. The other shade is Fair to Light. Unfortunately, it doesn't come in a darker shade.

Keep reading to find out what I really think about Olay's Fresh Effects BB cream.

Spotted: Revlon Chalkboard Nail Art

Before heading to my friend's house for a night of games and fun, I headed to CVS to pick up a couple of things. And you know a CVS trip wouldn't be complete without a stroll down the make-up aisles. 
Since I had limited time, I only browsed the displays at the front of the store. I spotted the new Revlon chalkboard nail art!

Final Word: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Primer

I try to incorporate primer into my make-up routine. While I could pay extra for a great high-end primer, I'm usually more drawn to the drugstore brands (way more affordable). I've been using the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Primer. I was drawn to it because I really like the Instant Age Rewind concealer.

Out of the Box: Revlon Lash Potion by Grow Luscious

*I purchased the Revlon Lash Potion Mascara at my local Rite Aid. I'm not being paid by Revlon or any other company to review this product. This review is my honest opinion*

I'm constantly on the look out for the best (drugstore) mascara for my short and sparse lashes. I've been pretty loyal to the Maybelline brand when it comes to mascara. The Falsies waterproof is what I usually get. I've also tried the Falsies flare which also worked out very well for me. Right now, I've switching off between the Rocket and Mega Plush (both by Maybelline).
Then I spotted the Revlon Lash Potion by Grow Luscious. I'm very curious about the "Grow Luscious" part since I have very little lashes. Now, I'm not expecting miracles with this mascara when it comes to helping my lashes grow, but you never know.

Out of the Box: Velvet Provocateur Nail Kit

*Product sent to me by Pretty Woman USA (complimentary), solely for review purposes. This review is my own honest opinion.

Remember a while ago when I posted about a certain velvet nail kit from Rite Aid? The idea of velvet on my nails was very intriguing. Well, I finally got to try it out for myself thanks to Pretty Woman USA who was very nice to send me the kits for review.

Let's start with what's inside the kit.

Kiss Nail Dress in Chemise

I love painting my nails, but I hate waiting for it to dry. Sometimes, it seems no matter how long I let my nails dry, I always somehow mess it up...

All Things Coral (Beauty Haul)

After a recent run to CVS and Rite Aid, I realized that the lip products and blush I bought were all in the color coral -totally unintentional. Swatches after the jump!

Spotted: Nail Pearls

I've been interested in trying out the Ciate Nail Caviar. I first saw it on Michelle Phan's YouTube channel (not a tutorial... I think she was just wearing it). At first, I didn't like it, but then it grew on me. However, I can't justify spending $20 at Sephora for the Ciate kit. So I figured "Oh well, maybe there'll be some drugstore dupes for it later on."
Guess what? I found them! Where? Keep reading to find out.
