Affordable & Fabulous: New Makeup Alert!

Happy HumpDay Beauties!!

Half way through another week already?! Having Noel in Pre-K is making the days feel like they are flying by - and I don't like it!! Why do our little ones have to grow up so quickly?!?!

On a happy note: I'm selfishly keeping him home for the rest of the week. Heehee, before you call me a bad mommy, he is the only student in class this week!!! The other kids (I believe there are 2 or 3 enrolled at the moment) all happen to be sick and will start school on Monday. So he'll be back on Monday to meet his new friends, and I get a few more days to cuddle and otherwise be an obsessive mom. YAY!!

Today I want to share with you guys some new products by Jordana. I absolutely LOVE this brand because their prices are outrageously cheap, even for drugstore, and the quality and pigmentation is fantastic!!!

All of the following products can be found at Walgreens. Here is an overview of all the goodies I'm sharing with you guys today:

The FabuLiner Bold is a felt tip liquid eyeliner. It is available in the color black. I love that the product does not feather and is super long lasting. Keep in mind that the tip is on the larger side so it's great for bold dramatic looks but not the best option for delicate thinner lines. Retail Price: $2.99

The Best Volume Extreme Volumizing Mascara is also only available in the color black. MY favorite part of this mascara is that the formula does not clump on me!!! Spider eyes are just not cute! The brush is HUGE so at first it feels a little weird applying such a large object so close to your eyeball but application is easy and it definitely does what it says when it comes to volume. Big brush = Big lashes? I guess so. Love it! Retail Price: $3.99

The 12HR Make to Last Eyeshadow Pencil is available in 8 shades. Below are the shades 07 Prolong Purple, 01 Eternal White, and 04 Continuous Almond. Below are also swatches. I adoreeee the nude/almond color. A much cheaper dupe for MAC's paint pot in painterly which is a staple of mine. These are great as shadows or as a shadow base. They can even be used on the face for Halloween makeup (yes, Halloween! October IS right around the corner!) Speaking of Halloween, I'm filming my first Halloween tutorial tomorrow. It should be live next week, Wednesday AND I will be using some of these products in that look so stay tuned for that! 

Any who, these shadow pencils are crease-proof which is fantastic, and water resistant. They glide on easily and super smooth. Retail Price: $3.99


The 12HR Made To Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil is available in 6 shades. Below are the shades 05 Aqua Stone, 06 Jade Jewel, and 01 Black Point. You read right - Liquid Pencil. These glide on as smooth as a liquid but are in an easy to use pencil form. They remind me almost of a gel pot but in a much easier to apply pencil packaging. The colors are super pigmented and they are water and transfer resistant, plus paraben-free. (Actually all of the items I'm showing you today except the bold eyeliner are paraben-free!) Retail Price: $2.49

The Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain comes in 8 shades and is probably my favorite new product that I'm showing you today! The pencil is retractable so you don't have to drive yourself crazy looking for a sharpener which is always nice. They light-weight stain is actually packed full of color and lasts the whole day through- perfect for school/work when you want color without worrying about reapplying. The color also applies with a gloss like finish and - what completely stole my heart - they are soooo moisturizing. My lips get sooo dry in the fall and winter so it's great when I find a product that provides color plus is moisturizing. So many of my favorite lipsticks tend to dry my lips out but now I found some new favorites that actually combat my dry lip problem. Retail Price: $2.99

That's all for today guys! Thank you for spending some time with me and let me know which of these new products you're most excited about? Check my YouTube channel tomorrow for a new video at 1pm EST. Also, I'm taking a long overdue trip to Lush on Friday to pick up some goodies. Let me know if you guys want a blog haul on what I end up getting?

Love you all!
