Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Hey guys!!!

I have found a new holy grail product and I am excited to show you what it is. I bought the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara during the Sephora VIB Sale back in April because I have heard great things about it of course. This would be the very first makeup product from Clinique so I definitely was excited to try this out!


When I first tried this I was impressed and I haven't been able to put it down since. My lower lashes look nice and long and they don't get clumpy whatsoever. My lashes are always nicely separated when I use this. 

One thing I was worried about was that if it will run whenever my eyes watered from allergies, but I was surprised that it didn't. My allergies were so bad one day that it looked like I was crying and the mascara didn't budge. It doesn't flake throughout the day which is always a plus.

I love the packaging of this product. The tiny little wand is perfect to hit those lower lashes.  

Overall like I said in the beginning it is my new holy grail and I will always repurchase this. So far everything I have tried from Clinique like for example the Take the Day off Cleansing Balm, Take the Day off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes, and Lips, the Makeup Brush Cleanser, and a few skin care products. 

What are some of you guys favorite Clinique products?? What do you guys suggest me to try next??

July 2015 Empties

Hey guys!!!

I have been using up a lot of things lately and it was time to do another post before it gets to be too much. I will be showing you what I used up and what I think of each product.

  • Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser- As always this will be in my empties because it is my favorite spot cleaning product for my brushes. It cleans them very well and it lasts me a while.
  • Harvey Prince Hello Shampoo & Conditioner- I honestly hated these products on my hair because it made my hair feel gross and brittle. I will not be buying these products since I received them in my February Birchbox. 
  • Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion- This was a nice moisturizer and felt nice on the skin, but it wasn't moisturizing enough. I also received this in my February Birchbox and I won't be buying this one.
  • Fekkai PrX Reparatives Intense Fortifying Masque- I loved this mask! It left my hair feeling soft and smooth and it looked healthy. I will eventually purchase this on my own since I received this in my March Birchbox! Thank you Birchbox for this awesome product!
  • Amika Nourishing Mask- This was an okay mask. I don't think it did much for my hair at all. I received this in my November 2014 Birchbox and I will not be buying this one.
  • WEI Manuka Bee Venom Mask- This mask was okay it didn't wow me. It was moisturizing for sure, but not life changing enough for me to go out and purchase this. I will stick to my Origins Overnight Mask for that. I received this in my April Birchbox.
  • Maybelline Color Tatto in Inked in Pink- This was one of my first color tattos that I bought and I loved it to death. I was more than halfway done with this and it dried up. I will most likely repurchase this one day.
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara- I enjoyed this mascara, but not on its own. I would use this first then another mascara because it does give some volume and length, but not enough for me. The waterproof formula does keep the curl up. It did clump easily if I wasn't careful with it. I probably won't repurchase this one because I am still trying out different mascaras so I can see which ones I love. 
  • BeeKind Shampoo- I hate this shampoo. It didn't lather and my hair felt hard(that is the best way to describe it). I will not be buying this one on my own I received this in my March Birchbox. I have been looking for a more natural shampoo, but no luck.
  • NYC Sunny Bronzer- I really loved this bronzer and I really recommend any beginner to start off with this one. It is not too pigmented so you can build this one up little by little. Only thing is that I had hit major pan and it just broke on me. Does that happen to you guys?? I might purchase this eventually I have to get through the bronzers that I have first.
  • Body Shop Body Butter- I bought this product during Christmas time during an awesome sale and I actually bought 3. I am almost done with the second one now. These are worth the money though just because it does last you a long time. I will repurchase this product eventually gotta get through a few body butters first.
  • Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre (24-Hour Miracle Cream)- I was really excited to get this product in my March Birchbox because I have heard great things about it. Back when I tried this I loved it so much that I had to buy a full size at IMATS, but I haven't started using it yet because I am finishing up my night time moisturizer. Soon I will start using it.
  • Clinique All About Eyes Rich- This was a great eye cream, but something about it wasn't good enough for me. It really moisturized my under eye and nothing was wrong with it. It did its job, but......something was missing. I am trying a new eye cream and I think it is my holy grail cream. I will keep you guys updated.
Those are all the things I have used up. What have you guys used up recently??  
I have found a couple of holy grail products and I can't wait to share with you guys this week what they are.
