High Voltage Cosmetics Eyeshadow Review & Swatches – Fiesta Shades

High Voltage Shimmery Eyeshadow look

I have purchased a few High Voltage Mineral Eyeshadow samples and I’ve been swatching and playing with them. The 4 shades that I’m talking about today remind me of guacamole, so I’m going to be a dorkus and call these”fiesta” shades.

Swatches of High Voltage Shimmery Eyeshadow

The swatch picture was taken with a flash. I think it took an accurate picture. This how these colors look indoors.

Maybelline XXL Pro Extensions Microfiber Mascara Review

Maybelline Pro Extension XXL Mascara ReviewWeekly Cheap Secret:

I have found a mascara that I like! OK, I know you’ve read all my rants about hating so many mascaras over the years. I said like here, not love ­čÖé This means that I will repurchase if I don’t find something else or hear about a “bigger and better” mascara launch to screw me over. But, I’ve been using Maybelline XXL Pro Extension Mascara and actually really, really like it. It’s the closest thing that I have to… Continue┬áreading | 6 Comments

Currently, I have been using MAC Studio Finish Concealer with SPF 35. I have not been impressed with the MAC concealer to cover dark circles.

L’Oreal Telescopic Lash Explosion Mascara Review

Weekly Cheap Secret:

I have a way for falling for gimmicks but with age I am getting better. I purchased L’Oreal Telescopic Lash Explosion mascara just out of sheer old curiosity. It sure looks a lot like Givenchy Phenomenon Mascara which retails for $28. This L’Oreal one goes for about $9. L’Oreal Telescopic Lash Explosion’s claim to fame is that it gets every lash. This sure sounds like a miracle that is too good to be true but I read others’ reviews and just had to try it… Continue┬áreading
