Iโ€™ve always had a love for makeup. I can remember being a little girl anxiously awaiting the time when I would be able to apply makeup. I fondly remember going to Claireโ€™s and Afterthoughts with my mom to buy my first eyeshadows and lip glosses. Itโ€™s a joy for me to watch my own daughter now go through all of my makeup and get excited to try different things on. Sheโ€™s most fond of lipsticks and eyeshadows herself. Watching her veins back so many memories of myself doing the exact same thing with my mom. 

I get pretty excited when I try a brand Iโ€™ve been hearing many wonderful things about. Mascara and lipsticks are the two items I purchase the most of, namely because Iโ€™ve never had a bad reaction or breakout from them. My skin is very sensitive making me extra careful as to what I apply to it. Iโ€™ve tried tons of different mascaras and lipsticks throughout the years and have found a few that I go back to time and time again.

Adding to my go-tos are these new products from No7. Iโ€™ve seen this brand before, mostly while browsing at Target, and have always wanted to try them. I can happily say that these products live up to their hype! First, the Matte Liquid Lips. I love the idea of a matte lip, but have never found ones that do not dry my lips to the point of unsightly flaking. I was pleasantly surprised when these highly pigmented glosses when on, without feeling sticky, became matte, but still felt pillow-y without drying my lips. My favorite colors are Captivate and Inspire. Grace is a stunning neautral, but I typically need a little more color or I look like a ghost. 

Next, the Lash Impact products. Mascaras are my favorite type of makeup. While I donโ€™t do anything drastic with my makeup, I do spend the most time on my eyes creating a soft shimmery neautral base, then liquid liner to crest a cat eye, followed by two to three layers of mascara.  At night I sweep on a layer of the Lash Serum on the base of my upper lashes, which stays in place and does not get into my eyes unlike other lash serums Iโ€™ve tried. I just started to use this a few days ago and cannot say as to whether my lashes have grown or not, but Iโ€™ll keep you updated! The Lash Primer Perfecter is the first coat I put on in the morning. It has a black color and will tint the lashes and act as a amplifier for the mascara. You could also wear this alone if you like a more natural look and to also tint the bottom lashes. Lastly, I apply two coats of the Lash Impact Ultra in the Brown/Black color. Iโ€™ve always found that a brown shade looks more natural. The mascara is creamy and dries fast without any flaking! Yes!! No flaking. I get some nice length to my lashes, which also remain smudge free too.
