Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara Review

 I love trying out new drugstore products. I have said before that I like high end make up, but there is alots of drugstore products that I like. When I saw this Covergirl The Super Sizer Mascara at Walgreens and read the packaging and it said will give you 400x corner to corner volume I had to try it out. Really? 400x thats a pretty huge claim if you ask me.

The wand is a plastic wand and its a weird shape with one side being almost completely flat. The bristles are really short. After first glance I was like no way is this going to do anything for my lashes.

This is me with out any mascara. I do have pretty long eyelashes so I really want something that will give them some volume.

 Here is just one coat of mascara on my eye.

So what are my over all thoughts? I had to try this mascara SEVERAL times before I really could really form any opinion. I didn't like it at first. It really didn't wow me and definitely didn't give my lashes 400x more volume. I don't know why, but I get this everywhere when I am applying it. After putting it to the test for several weeks it really started to grow on me. Maybe it was because it kinda started to dry out a little bit and wasn't so wet. I love the wand for the bottom lashes ALOT. Its not my favorite mascara. I probably won't repurchase it only because there are other mascara I like more. 

If you want to purchase this you can find it anywhere. I got my at Wal greens for $6.99, but you can always find Covergirl products on sale. So never pay full price.

June Favorites

I am melting over here its only June and the temperature outside to today is 113 degrees here in Las Vegas. Its to hot to wear to much make up so I don't have a lot of make up items to share, but I have a bunch of random thing. 

1. Baseball T-shirt Dress from Mindy Mae's Market- This is dress is everything. I can want to wear it every single day. What I love about it is that the material is thick enough that I can wear it and not have to worry about all my imperfections peeking through. You know what I am talking about. I have already ordered another one and most likely will have all the colors they have pretty soon.

2. The Fringe Hours- I received this book from my Savvy Sassy Product Scout box and was so excited to read it. It came at the most perfect time for me to. If you are needing to find ways to carve out hours in your day for YOU this book will help you. I loved it talked about how us as women feel like we have to be doing EVERYTHING, but really we don't and there is a season for  everything. If this isn't your season to be volunteering at your kids school that its OK.  I HIGHLY recommend this book.

3. Dove Body Wash- I have had super dry arms and legs since I spend a lot of time out at the pool and outside. I have had to buy everything thats moisturizing. This is a really nice moisturizing body wash. Its moisturizing but it doesn't leave your skin with a film on it like some others do.

4. Totspot App- This is an awesome new app that you can buy and sell children's clothing on. I recently purchase somethings for my daughter and was impressed with what I got. When you buy used clothing from online you can really never know what you are going to get, but I got a GAP cardigan and a T-shirt from there and both were in perfect condition. If you have little kids you know that they grow out of clothes so fast, so this is a good way to help off set the cost of that. Sell the items they grow out of and buy gently used ones. I used to do this a lot when my older two were younger. You should check out the app. They have all kinds of brands on there. I go on everyday to see if any new Matilda Jane clothes are posted in my daughters size.

5. Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette- I have worn this palette everyday since I got it this month. I really like it. I will have a full review on it soon.

6. Essie Nail Polish In Cute as a Button- This is the PERFECT summer color. Its the perfect coral pink color.

7. Hair ties- These are saving my hair this summer. I wear it up almost everyday. These don't pull my hair out, but are good enough to hold hair up and tight.

Disclosure: I received some of the products in this post for review as part of the Savvy Sassy Moms Product Scouts program. All opinions are my own. If I do not truly love something I will not post about it.

June Birch Box

Last month I did a battle of the boxes comparing Ipsy and my Birch Box, and I had planned to do that again this month but my Ipsy bag still hasn't come. So I am just going to do them separate if the Ipsy bag is any good. Can we just admire these darling boxes that come every month. This one is so cute.

See Swatches below. These shadows are super buttery and creamy not to mention the colors are pretty. This makes me want to buy the full palette.

Marcella Waterproof Eyeliner ($11)-

See swatch below. This is a really pretty eyeliner, but honestly I probably will never wear it. Its just not a color I would wear. Its nicely pigmented and swatches smoothly.

This is a face scrub its supposed to mimic the affects of microdermabrasion. I am super excited to try this out.
