Makeup Wars: Favorite Mascara

Makeup Wars Favortie Mascara 1
Makeup Wars Favortie Mascara Last Makeup Wars Favortie Mascara Next

This edition of “Makeup Wars” has us talking about out favorite mascaras. Now, anyone that knows me, or reads this site, will not be surprised in the least that I picked the Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara. I really like this mascara for the main reason that it is a drier formula than a lot of other mascaras. It’s dry almost as soon as it is applied, which makes it really easy to build up layers. The big, full brush gets more mascara on my lashes per swipe. It doesn’t really separate lashes, it really goes more for the “drag queen” type of lashes. Even Mally would tell you that herself. 😉

The pic is of one of the smaller tubes, with a shorter brush handle than what comes in the full-size tube. I just happen to be using this one right now, so it’s the one I took a picture of. You can pick these up on MallyBeauty.com and on QVC in a single tube, but if you pick up most any of Mally’s kits, there is usually one included.

What kind of formula do you like? A wetter formula or a drier formula? Let me know and be sure to check out the favorite’s of the other gals:

*Disclaimer: I really don’t know where this tube came from. It may have come from things I received as a Mally Beauty Ambassador, or from one of the kits I’ve picked up for myself from QVC. It’s def repurchaseable.

My BFF is pregnant!

Exciting news around here! It has been confirmed this week that my BFF is pregnant! So, that means I am going to get as much info as I can on all kinds of mommy-to-be products so that I can spoil my BFF, and the bean, before it even arrives!

One of the things she has already noticed was that she could see that her skin was already starting to change on her. So, the first thing I suggested was that she get herself some Mama Mio OMega Body Oil. Well, she did one better and already ordered her self The 9 Month Stretch Kit – which includes the Mama Mio Pregnancy Essentials: Tummy Rub Butter, Boob Tube and Lucky Legs, along with Tracy Anderson’s new Pregnancy Project workout DVD set. (*It’s $75USD online.)

I’m ridiculously excited to get to be an auntie, but I am clueless about the best products to suggest to her. So, if you have any suggestions, please leave’em for me. And, as I find out things, I will definitely share them with you in case you have friends, relatives, or even yourself that might be in the market for some mommy-to-be treats, too!

Makeup Wars: Favorite BB Cream



This edition of “Makeup Wars” has us discussing our favorite BB creams. As we all know, I love me some foreign beauty products, so it should come as no surprise that my favorite BB cream is a legit Asian BB cream. I say “legit” because the Asian BB creams contain a whitening formulation that the US brands don’t include, which I actually need this time of year because of my ruddy cheeks. It’s also a thicker formula, which is more moisturizing for me as the temperatures cool down.

And, just to be weird, this contains nail protein extract, which I have no clue how it’s beneficial, but they say it gives the skin “nascent energy”, and really, who doesn’t want *that* (*whatever that is). And since it’s from Asia, it’s going to be a pain to get here in the US, but if you want to hunt it down, it was around $25USD, as a point of reference.

But if you are curious what I use from the US, my go to lately has been the Maybvelline Dream Fresh BB. Like I said, this doesn’t contain a whitening agent, so it really acts like a tinted moisturizer to me, which is my preferred formula anyway. And, since it’s here in the US, it’s available just about everywhere you shop – big box, drugstore and online for less than $10USD.

Have you guys jumped on the BB cream wagon? What is your favorite one – and do you switch it up due to the weather/season? Or keep on going?

Now, go check out what the other gals have picked as their favorite BB cream:
