You will glow your most beautiful glow

So, the minute I saw this online- I knew it had to be mine.  I only have one other Charlotte Tilbury product – and it’s the Instant Look in a Palette. Which  was a very kind gift- from another beauty obsessed friend. Just btw: I like the palette a lot- it’s the perfect – oh crap i’m running late and can only take one thing- product.

So, I will do whatever it takes to look glowy and this is the answer to all of my prayers. The Hollywood Flawless Filter isn’t cheap: It’s $44.00. But I don’t see myself living without it.  Don’t mind me while I gush a little bit more:



So how do I use it? 

Step 1: I moisturize my face with Eminence Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer    Seriously, don’t get me started on this. It’s everything.  I was visiting Canada and was totally conned by a salesperson with beautiful skin to pick this up- thankfully it happened- because I love it… but it’s spendy.

Step 2: Slather on the amazzzzzing Smashbox Primerizer.

Step 3: THE HOLLYWOOD FLAWLESS FILTER. I have noticed such a difference when I use this everyday. The product has a huge doe foot applicator, and you paint it onto your face. On second thought, I probably should’ve taken some pictures of the applicator…

*HUGE PSA: The Hollywood Flawless Filter is not glittery. To me, there is no appeal to a highlight with glitter. This has a beautiful creamy sheen. * 

Step 4-12: All the other stuff you put on your face. The Hollywood Filter just serves as a glow-y base. I did see some reviews, and folks were unsure if this was a foundation or a primer. It’s kind of an all purpose glow – but def not a foundation.

Just FYI: I put a lot of this on my face(like 5-6 stripes)  before I go in with foundation. I can get away with it because my skin is very dehydrated, and I have to add glow. However, I can see this being just as beautiful for someone who wants to be more precise with the product- possibly just using it as a beautiful -natural- highlight after foundation.

Here’s a super professional HD quality  video of the Hollywood Filter sheer-ed out on my hand. The left hand has a very small amount and the right hand doesn’t.

One last thing: there are six shades of this product. Which is amazing & inclusive for a “highlighter…complexion booster” (that’s how Nordstrom makes sense of it.)  I purchased shade 3: Light/Medium – but I was definitely considering shade 4 too. I think if you have the luxury of stopping into a Nordstrom and checking them out I would, the undertones are different. However, my world wouldn’t have come to an end if I picked up the Shade 4, especially since it serves as more of a primer-like product.

In summary, if you like a glow all over, or a precise natural highlight: TRY THIS. I really don’t think you’d be disappointed.  Seriously, let’s keep our fingers crossed that Charlotte Tilbury never stops making this.


That’s all for this (very lazy) Sunday! Have an amazzzzing week! 🙂

These products are SAVING my dry skin!

My skin has been looking healthy and moisturized lately, so I figured it was time that I sit down and just honor the products working their daily magic. I have been using this trio for about a month now- and LOVE it. The good news is that the face wash is very affordable – unfortunately, the hydrating serum (which I think makes the biggest difference) is crazy expensive…

Products ordered by application:

1. Simple Micellar Facial Gel Wash – $5.99 – (Target)

2. Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum – $49.00 – (Sephora)

3. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer – $19.99 – (Target)

Some general thoughts about each:

Left: La Roche-Posay Moisturizer – I bought this on sale at Walgreen’s one day because I knew that La Roche Posay sunscreen was loved by pretty much everyone, and I’ve always want to try a cool french pharmacy brand. This is as no frills as it gets. The consistency is right in the middle – it doesn’t feel light, but it definitely isn’t thick. This has no smell- I did some research on this and it is actually an award winning moisturizer, and is safe for sensitive skin! One of my best friends has the MOST sensitive skin so i’m always very mindful of low cost, effective, options.

Middle: Simple Face Wash- I’m obsessed. Seriously, this is by far one of the least drying facial washes I think I’ve ever used. The consistency is very slippery and watery and I’m in love.  Another cool thing: this face wash has no fragrance or dyes. At $5.99 I would really recommend anyone with dry skin to try this.

Right: Caudalie Quenching Serum- Ugh. It’s always kind of the worst when you fall in love & can’t imagine your life without a product that’s stupid expensive. This product does have one huge fault- you go through it so quickly! I use two pumps morning and night and I’ve had it since November 9th. That’s almost exactly a month and it’s about 1/3 full. I just did some math and the results are heartbreaking.

Let’s say one bottle lasts me 1.5 months.
(one year)12/1.5(months per bottle) = 8 bottles needed a year.
8 (bottles) x $49.99 = $400/ yr on JUST this serum.

With that bleak math: 

1.  I’m going to have to cut it back two one pump night and day or a two pump application AM or PM


2. I just live without this magical serum…


That’s all! I’m off to cherish my remaining days with my amazing (ungodly expensive) serum!

Happppppppy Holidays! (If you’re a family member or friend who happens to read this and is looking for gifts… just saying! )

Not trying to be dramatic…but this body oil changed my life.

Aaaaah!!  I have so many strong feelings about this body oil and I don’t know how best to describe this oil and do it justice.

I would have never thought that I’d almost exclusively use body oil over body lotion. Seriously, never. One of my old coworkers who, like me, is always up for trying any new beauty product — sent me a picture of this and said this Coco Shea oil was the best thing she’s every used. Obviously, I had to try it and seriously is there anything that sounds as delicious as coco/ shea/ honey oil?

Get this – it’s from Bath and Body Works. I literally had to make a special trip (map it out and everything!) to pick a bottle of this up. I’m not going to lie – I was kind of a huge snob about the whole thing.. how good can a Bath & Body Works oil realllllly be?

Turns out… this oil is so good that after about a week of using it- I went right back to the store (because there was a coupon…yup I’m now signed up for Bath & Body Works coupons) and picked up two more bottles. Ya know, just in case something happens and they run out.

Top reasons why I love this:

  • The smell is seriously amazing. I rub this everywhere when I get out of the shower or before I leave for the day. It isn’t overpowering!
  • It truly is “lightweight” – I never feel sticky or like if I bump into something it’ll leave a little oily mark. I also put my clothes on top of this and it hasn’t been an issue.
  • This bottle has been going strong for about two months! I feel like I use a good amount every time I apply it – and it’s probably a little more than half full.
  • You get this subtle hydrated glow… which is more than any lotion has ever done for me. It’s beautiful on the skin.
  • This is so warm weather friendly! This oil > all lotions

Other thoughts: 

  • This comes in three scents: honey (clearly #1), cucumber, and coconut. They all smell great but the honey oil is just everything. 
  • The one place I need extra hydration after using the oil is my elbows. I do feel like it’s maybe too lightweight of an oil in that section!
  • The price is up there….A bottle of this $16.50! The good news is Bath & Body Works always has sales and both times I purchased these I didn’t pay full price.

This has to be one of the best suggestions I’ve received in a very long time! I don’t see myself switching back to lotion anytime soon…it’s that good.


Still on the neverending hunt for my perfect skincare…

I’ve moved to the south and I am back in school studying marketing. There are a few really cool things about my program: it’s analytics heavy, and I love getting to learn how people and businesses go about launching/buying products. I’ve learned that I am an informed consumer but also a highly emotional decision maker.

These purchases reflect that.

I moved to a new city, and I really do think that informed a lot of these decisions.(Again…emotional decision maker.)

 Dr. Jart+ – Ceramidin Starter Kit ($34.00)


Emotional rationale for purchase: I stopped into a new Sephora when I was slightly down, and fell in love w/ the full-size cream but wasn’t quite ready to commit to the $48.00 full size  tube so I ordered the sampler online. 

This little duo is amazing. An important thing to note: the products are teeny tiny – I do feel I was slightly ripped off with the size. This cream claims to provide “…ultra-moisturizing, elasticity, long lasting, moisture protection, more powerful moisturizing cream…”  LITERALLY, THAT IS EVERYTHING THAT I NEED IN A MOISTURIZER.

This performs so so well. Everything about this is simple, a simple tube, naturally scented, and it works. I’ve been using the duo day and night and it’s the perfect amount of hydration for my skin. Becuase I have dry skin I usually opt for very intense moisturizers that leave my skin slightly tacky – this doesn’t do that.  I’m definitely going to be purchasing the full-size cream and liquid.

Two notes:

  1. The liquid is a serum texture, not oily
  2. I noticed that Amazon is selling the cream for $39.00 instead of $48.00. Just saying…

 milk + honey – Everything Oil ($32.00)

Emotional rationale for purchase: So milk+honey is very popular in my new city. It’s a very “Cool girl …Oh look at me I’m so hip and natural ” brand. I totally fell for the hype and looked for parking for like 25 minutes just so I could go into their spa/store and spend money.

This oil is fine. It smells nice (if you like the way natural oil smells) and it doesn’t make me break out. I usually use it at night after I wash my face, and slather it all over. Again, I have incredibly dry skin- if you don’t… I really don’t think you would like this. I don’t think I would purchase this again because it’s relatively cheap to just by straight argan oil that can do the same thing. I was a sucker for the cute apothecary glass bottles and whole “story” around the brand.

I also purchased their natural cream deodorant in Coconut Lemongrass. It was so awful and disappointing. I have nothing against natural deodorants (literally love Native & Piper Wai) but this was actually crap. $16.00 crap. It melted in my car and rather than waiting for it to solidify I threw it out. The weirdest thing is that everyone is legit crazy for this deodorant – if you go to any cute boutiques in the area they will carry milk + honey deodorant and swear by it.

Glossier – Priming Moisturizer Rich ($35.00)

Emotional rationale for purchase: I was talking to one of my friends in the program and we were bonding about liking glossier and she mentioned really liking their priming moisturizer. I had been wanting to try out their skincare but knew from other reviews that the rich version would be better for dehydrated skin. I bought it half because I was running out of my moisturizer/ and half because I wanted to report back to my friend. It’s embarrassing, but whatever. 

General thoughts about this product:

  1. A good amount of product for Glossier
  2. This made me breakout so so badly. I am very lucky to have skin that doesn’t break out –  but this paired with the heat – was an awful combination
  3. The does leave you slightly oily – again, for me, that’s not the worst but I can see this being a nightmare if your skin isn’t dry
  4. Pots suck. I don’t understand why they still exist for moisturizers. I literally only use it with clean hands but it still feels unsanitary
  5. I would never purchase this again… but I am using what I have left for my cuticles and hands because this product wasn’t exactly a bargain


That’s all! I’m loving this new city and loving getting to experiment with new products – truly that is my happy place. I’ve purchased a bunch of things since the last time I posted and I can’t wait to share them.

Happy Sunday! 🙂  ❤

Two of my summer skin favorites

I am moving from the northwest down south and it’s very clear that I am going to be stripped down to bare basics for makeup. The minute you walk outside you’re sticky, and a full face of makeup just isn’t the thing. I’ve cut down on buying makeup drastically (go me!) and only buy things I think can withhold extreme heat… enter the Clarins Skin Tint & Benefit’s Dandelion Blush!

Benefit Dandelion Blush – $15.00 (Travel Size)


Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. I am in love with this slightly sheen-y blush. It’s beautiful. It’s subtle enough to wear it everyday without anything else on your face, but not so subtle that it’s not worth spending the money. I purchased Dandelion Dew not too long ago, and although it was beautiful – I didn’t feel like it had enough impact to justify the price point.

I actually purchased this at a Benefit VENDING MACHINE. That’s right! You can imagine how excited I was to be able to dispense a tiny Benefit blush in the middle of an airport. The pricing at the vending machine was the same as Sephora, and they had a great selection of different products and colors! I want beauty vending machines everywhere.

The baby pink color looks beautiful on and in the picture above I have a little swatch of pink brightness on my hand. Imagine how youthful, and healthy this looks on the cheeks. My biggest concern when picking this up is that it would look dusty…instead of a creamy pink dream. It doesn’t! It’s a gorgeous pink that would be flattering on fair to light medium skin tones! I can’t recommend this enough… for such a frilly pink- it looks amazing and brightening on.

Clarins Sunscreen Multi-Protection Tint – $45.00

Ok, straight up-  I have no idea who I think I am spending $45.00 on a glorified sunscreen! That being said…I love it and can’t imagine life without it. It’s everything man. I hate putting sunscreen on, and usually never do it without someone else forcing me. I’m an adult… I know… but it’s annoying and I WANT TO GET TAN. But, I totally get that skin cancer, and premature aging isn’t worth the tan.

I would highly recommend this to anybody who wants a tiny bit of blurring, and to have protection from the sun. They do only have two shades of this formula *eye roll*. In the picture above I have sheered out the tint right next to the big blob. As you can see, it isn’t going to blow your mind in coverage, but it does a little something something. I am a huge fan of the Shiseido face sunscreen, but love that this is a easy 2-in-1 product.

I’m so so happy to be moving somewhere that’s sunny year round… the NW fall/winter can be kind of tough on my mood!

Happy happy Friday! 🙂

I’ve got some love for NARS & Glossier Pot Concealers

These two concealers are hot little commodities! They appeal to both my “I’m such a minimalist cool girl makeup wearer” and my “I need heavy duty help and only the best will do makeup wearer” sides!

I wanted to do a comparison because I went in somewhat blind with both of these purchases- and you shouldn’t have to!

Spoiler: I love them both- but they do very different things. 

Glossier Stretch Concealer & NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer

Let’s look at some basics about these two:


  • Cost: $30.00 …believe me I know. Even typing the price is painful.
  • Size: 0.21 oz
  • Color Range: 16 colors! GET IT NARS! I’m really happy with Custard under my eyes – I could go a teensy bit brighter if I wanted to highlight.
  • Availability: widely available
  • Product Description: “A full-coverage concealer in an oil-free, ultra-lightweight cream formula that blurs imperfections as it conceals, smoothing the look of skin with a soft-matte, natural-looking finish.”


  • Cost: $18.00
  • Size: 0.17 oz
  • Color Range: 5 colors. *Eyeroll* I’m using Medium under my eyes and it’s definitely the best out of the options, but not perfect.
  • Availability: limited to website (free shipping after $30)
  • Product Description: “The buildable formula covers everything from dark circles to redness and blemishes. In five shades painstakingly developed to enhance, brighten, and—most importantly—completely disappear into the widest range of skin tones.”


You can see here that the colors are different, and that Glossier definitely does lighten up the under eye a bit more. Check out the blended out swatches below! They both seamlessly blend into my hand…obviously that’s far easier on a hand than under the eyes but still you get the gist!

Picutres of the concealers on my eyes

*We’re gonna agree not to hate. I woke up… put moisturizer on… thought about this post…and took some pictures- they’re not glamour shots people!*


The left eye here has concealer and the right doesn’t. I’m actually really happy that I took these pictures because admittedly-  sometimes I spend money on products and kind of just hope they’re working but don’t have the side by side proof.  Although my right eye does look lighter – you can tell that the NARS concealer does WORK and gets rid of the under eye bags and makes everything just a little less sallow. YAY!

When applying: the product is creamy for sure, but not exactly moisturizing. However,  it’s not so dry that you should never consider it if you have dry skin… just moisturize your eyes really well and go in! I’m very impressed I can use this “matte” concealer. You use SO LITTLE product that I truly believe the $30.00 price tag, although steep, isn’t completely outrageous.


The right eye here has concealer and the left doesn’t. I mean c’mon that’s an improvement. Although it isn’t as drastic and seamless as NARS  (and it doesn’t claim to be) it is a great light concealer!

When applying: This is a pretty moisturizing concealer! When I initially swatched it on my hand I thought that it wouldn’t have enough coverage for me. It definitely does have some coverage, and it is buildable. However, if you have oily eyes- just don’t buy this. I like it and can use it because everything on my face is dry. But, I have friends that I know would hate this concealer and it would slip and slide everywhere.


I really hope this has been helpful! I was so excited to try both of these, and I know they’re both very in demand right now. I do feel like there’s something nice about using a pot concealer over a wand- and I just don’t see myself switching back to a wand concealer anytime soon!

It’s Fridaaaaaaaaaay! Have a great weekend! 🙂



I’m a makeup wipe convert!

I never ever thought I would have positive feelings about face wipes. But, here I am! I even positioned some face wipes in some ivy (so artsy) because I like them so much. These two wipes couldn’t be more different, and really show the range of what’s available! My initial beef with facial wipes is that they left my face feeling greasy, and I would always need to go in with a cleanser afterwords. For me, I would use a face wipe for two primary reasons: a lazy attempt at taking everything off, or a quick step to make sure all my mascara is off and my face is reallllllly clean.

Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes – $5.99

These wipes surprised me! I picked them up because I have some pretty intense mascaras and these promised to help with waterproof mascara. I was also hopeful they’d smell like lavender since they’re branded as “calming.” So- they smell good… but not like lavender. I’m surprised they’re so heavily scented for “sensitive skin” wipes- I don’t mind the scent but I can see it aggravating some people.

When you use these wipes initially they do feel slightly oily on the skin, but they do not leave a residue!! That’s key for me! I will say that they definitely helped take off waterproof mascara, but they didn’t take everything off. That being said- these did a lot of the heavy lifting for me- and getting the rest of the makeup off isn’t too difficult! Also, the texture of these wipes is pretty “typical” for a facial wipe- soft and fabric-like.


Simple exfoliating facial wipes – $4.79

This is my first foray into Simple skincare- I’ve heard amazing things about the brand as a whole and I was super excited to try these exfoliating wipes. Who even knew that exfoliating wipes are a thing?!?!

Ok- I love these. There are a few things to note before buying these:

  • Texture: OH MAN these are intense! I would not underestimate these facial wipes ability to exfoliate your skin. I think they’d be too much for some people but I love a really intense facial scrub that feels like it’s low key sanding down your skin. So these are perfect for me.
  • Scent: The scent is light, and I love it. However, I expected these wipes to not be scented since they’re targeted at sensitive skin. So, if you’re looking for nonscented these aren’t the ones.
  • Takeaway: For me these wipes weren’t effective in much more than making my skin smell good and exfoliating dead skin. I’ve since purchased the Simple Cleansing wipes– and those perform more like the Neutrogena wipes to get rid of makeup and smell exactly like the Simple Exfoliating Facial Wipes.


All in all… I’m excited to have found a new corner of the beauty world to explore! I am aware of how dangerous this is…since the facial wipe market is over-saturated to say the least.

Final thoughts: I would repurchase the Simple exfoliating wipes because they’re so unique, and likely wouldn’t buy the Neutrogena wipes again. I love having a lazy girl  in between option… facial wipes are better than not washing my face at all, but not quite as intense and time consuming as my 6 step nighttime skincare- so perfect for me!


Have an amazing week!    ☺

I’d wear a sandwich board for this deodorant

So,  if you know me personally I’ve tried to force you to buy this Coconut & Vanilla deodorant from Native. I’ve likely given you about ten reasons why $12.00 for a natural deodorant isn’t the worst! If you’ve been close enough to me… I’ve shoved this in front of your nose so you can understand why I’m so pushy & intense about it.

I discovered this when I was at my friends house- I saw this sitting on her dresser and naturally I picked it up- opened it and it was love at first smell. There’s no real way to get across how amazing this smells without you picking up your own deodorant.

Shout out to Court & Kayli for introducing me to this gem! 🙂 


Okay a few things to note:

  • This deodorant is 2.65 oz. “Regular” stick deodorants from the drugstore are usually in the 2.6 oz -2.7 oz range. I was happy to find out you get an equal amount when you’re paying 2x-3x more for this deodorant.
  • Try to find a coupon! My friends sister suggested this, and I was able to easily save a little under $2.00 on this!
  • The most popular scent is Lavender & Rose, and I’m sure that it is amazing.
  • My biggest regret is not picking up the “Women’s Sample Pack” with 3 deodorants (Native Unscented, Lavender & Rose, Coconut & Vanilla) costing $30.00.
  • Native has a whole men’s range with just as exciting scents: Eucalyptus & Mint, Citrus & Herbal Musk, Oakmoss & Basil Leaf.

Yeah that’s great and all but does it work?

Yes! I was very very very skeptical that a natural deodorant with such fancy scents could actually perform… and oh man…it totally does. I am shocked that I can smell faintly (in a great way) like Shea butter and coconut throughout the day. In the morning when I apply the deodorant , I make sure that my armpits are washed and don’t have anything on them before I apply.

Unfortunately, I’m not a delicate fairy who doesn’t sweat and barely needs deodorant…I’m a real person who runs around all day and needs strong deodorant daily. Native’s deodorant performs. 

Native really drives home the potential health hazards of using aluminum based deodorants regularly. Check out their homepage- it’s well done and presents all the product information in a digestible way!

I really can’t recommend this enough, and am hopeful that you’ll take a chance and try it for yourself. I can’t truly vouch for the other scents…but I can say that Coconut & Vanilla will blow you away! Who knew deodorants could ellicit such a strong reaction from me?? 🙂

Have a great day !

Drugstore picks I’m happy I’ve found

I went into Target for paper towels. Just paper towels. Obviously, I left with this fixing spray, foundation, some yoga pants, a few pajama shorts from the clearance rack, and paper towels. I don’t know what kind of mind warp you enter when you walk into Target- but it’s effective. The mind warp led me to these two products, and I’m in love.

Pixi Mist & L’Oreal Foundation

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation – $8.59

Give me all the dew. In my day to day life, I want to look “lit from within” and somewhere in between healthy skin and like I just finished a 3 mile jog.  I love my Lumi Cushion, but wanted to try a foundation that has a tiny bit more coverage, but doesn’t compromise my glow. The True Match Lumi Liquid foundation gets the job done.

Although this range is praised for having a large shade range (16 shades!!!!!) I still had some trouble finding my match. I settled on N3, and it is much lighter than my N4 Lumi cushion- but I am able to mix it with a slightly darker foundation to get my perfect color.

In the picture above, I had slightly sheered out a little bit of foundation on the left, and it does provide a beautiful glow.

A few more thoughts:

  • This can really be built up to a full coverage
  • I would make sure to start with a really moisturized face- although this is a dewy product…it has clung to dry patches
  • If you have oily skin… I would stay farrrrr away
  • Anything you put on top of this foundation sits beautifully on top!

Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist – $15.00

I am such a fan of this misting spray! I think the water itself is amazing…but the actual quality of the spray- is just ok. This nozzle does not compare to the fine mist of MAC FIX + or any Urban Decay setting sprays.

I was looking for a drugstore mist that would feel good on my skin, and set my makeup in place for the whole day. I purchased NYX’s Dewy Finish spray and although it delivered in their claim of “dewiness” it was so sticky once it dried down. Pixi’s Makeup Fixing Mist delivered in both the dew, longevity, and none of the stickiness.

Pixi has five mists total in their “mist” range and I cannot wait to try all of them. The other four are: a glow mist, hydrating milky mist, sun mist, and vitamin wake up mist.

A few more thoughts:

  • The packaging is adorable. It makes me happy to open this up and use it every day
  • This product does separate so make sure to shake it up before use
  • I get that $15.00 is a bit much for something from Target… The Pixi mist is 2.7 oz, Urban Decay’s All Nighter is $31.00 for 4 oz, and MAC FIX + is $24.00 for 3.4 oz. This spray is right in that strange place in between drugstore and higher end.
  •  I love the smell of the product it has rose water and green tea… and a bunch of other chemicals but still- it feels somewhat natural.


I was so excited to share my thoughts, and I know these aren’t the newest and shiniest products but they’re solid standbys in the drug store.

Happy happy Wednesday!

This mascara is NOT messing around.

 I have heard SO much about Japanese mascaras. While I was in Asia I was on a mission to find Fairydrops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara.  I went “missing” more than a few times in random cities when I would leave everyone and duck into a drugstore in search of the perfect mascara.
Sadly, I didn’t find Fairydrops. But, I did see these two mascaras everywhere I went. I purchased them with the hope that they’d be life changing, and they’re definitely some of the most unique and intense mascaras I’ve used.

A few notes:
Mascara from Asia is different from Western mascara. That’s because the majority of the population in Asia has short eyelashes that grow straight or down instead of up and out. Mascara from Asia has to be extra effective and needs to provide length and volume like you’ve never seen before.
Admittedly… I was suckered into these mascaras by the “#1 Cosme” sticker on the packaging. Obviously, at the time I had no idea what Cosme meant, but it gave me some sense of security. These mascaras range between $10-$16 so not exactly cheap…
I now know that “Cosme” is Asia’s top cosmetics review site. I am obsessed with the website, and although they don’t ship to the US… it is cool to see a space dedicated to ranking Asian beauty products.

Isehan  Heroine Make Mascaras

Purple Packaging: Volume & Curl (straight wand gets wider towards the bottom, clumpy)

Pink Packaging: Long & Curl  (curved wand with more definition, and less clumpy)


Some of my biggest takeaways about this mascara: 

  • Jet Black is an understatement. This is a very pigmented black mascara.  I can definitely say that I’ve never used a more “true black” mascara before.
  • The formula itself is pretty wet, it goes on a lot wetter than a lot of mascaras I’ve used in the past.
  • Lastly and maybe most importantly- they’re not messing around when they say SUPER WATERPROOF. This does not budge. For me, this is both an amazing thing, and also kind of a pain. I have a habit of rubbing my eyes and this mascara can handle that without giving me raccoon eyes. However, taking this off at the end of the day is a feat. I can usually count on my Boscia makeup remover to get makeup off, but that doesn’t cut it with Heroine Make Mascara.
  • As a point of reference- my two most used mascaras right now are Lancome Hypnose Drama and Benefit Roller Lash.


If you’re in the market for a heavy duty blacker than black mascara that will not budge or smear… you’re gonna want to try the Heroine Make range!

Have a great weekend!
