Makeup Wars – Favorite Mascaras

I was not blessed with long, luscious lashes, so when it comes to mascara I need all the help I can get. They’re also stick-straight, lucky me, which means I need a mascara that not only lengthens and defines but also holds a curl. That’s a pretty tall task for one product, but I’ve found four go-to’s that are up for the job. If you’re looking for a clump free mascara that you can swipe on and jam, I’ve got you covered.

Deborah Lippmann Leopard Nail Art

In general, I don’t wear prints. I’m basic in that way. Solids, especially black, make up my wardrobe. However, I make an exception for leopard print. It’s essentially a neutral.

Makeup Wars: Favorite Mid-High End Brand – Urban Decay

This week, the Makeup Wars gang are battling out over our favorite Mid-High End Makeup brands. We’re standing our ground for the brand of choice, to prove why it’s worthy of our love. One of the first non-drugstore brands I discovered was Urban Decay. I received a shadow in a Makeup Alley swap and it was game on. The edgy color palette and iconic packaging drew me in, but when they introduced the first Naked palette, my neutral-loving self was smitten for life.

I mentioned in my Essie Spring 2015 review that Garden Variety and Flowerista were made to be worn together, so I used them for a scalloped nail art look.
