What is your best WATER PROOF MASCARA?

When I first started wearing makeup, I always used waterproof mascara.  I thought it was the bomb! LOL.  The only thing I hated about waterproof mascara was when it was time to remove it.  Thank god that time has changed and huge improvement has been made.  

Cover Girl launched its NEW 24 Hour Lashblast mascara and I must say it WORKS.
This mascara lasts long, doesn't leave no lumps or fall outs, comes in 7 shades, affordable and the best part it's easy to remove!!!! 

The funny part was after the 3rd day wearing it, I had a personal situation and yes I cried and cried not caring about my makeup.  When I finally calmed down, I went to clean my face and was shocked that my mascara didn't run at all.  That was all the proof I needed :)  

The only downside I have with this product is the smell, but other than that I highly recommend it.

Foundation for "Older Skin"

My mom is proud to say she is 62 years old and I don't blame her!!!  

She loves makeup (I wonder where I get my obsession from hmmm...), but she is not too 'BIG' on drug store products especially foundation. 

After experimenting with Revlon's NEW Photo Airbrush Foundation and LOVING it, I was bragging to her how she should try it.  After several attempts, I finally convinced her and WAaLAa.  In fact, to make her feel comfortable, I applied Revlon Foundation on the LEFT side and Eve Pearl Liquid Foundation on the Right you see any difference?!?!?  

I'm just LOVING this foundation - - - GOOD JOB REVLON!!!!

NEW Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousee Foundation

Hi :)

I'm back with a review on the New Revlon Foundation.  As you already know, I'm a Revlon junkie and it's my everyday foundation so when I saw this it was a MUST for me!!!
More intriguing yet confusing about this foundation it has 'Airbrush' and 'Mousse' on it so I wasn't sure what to expect.  However, I was super excited to play with it after purchasing it on sale at my local drug store buy 1 @ $13.99 ($11.99 n other places) and get the other 50% off.  I bought '050 Medium Beige' and '060 Golden Beige'.  The one that best matches me is '050' (I'm in between MAC NC 30 & NC35).   

The first thing I want to point out is the packaging of this foundation.  It has a pump, which is nice for bacteria purposes and on the back has a warning label 'inflammable.'  I found that cool.  Now when you pump you have to be caution because a lot may come out.  This is the way it looks:


Back Label
It comes out like Foam but feels like Mousse on your fingers
It even bubbles, lol

It flats once tap with a brush

 After playing with this foundation I realized why it's 'Airbrush' and 'Mousse.'  As you can see it comes out like foam mousse and it's very light once apply to the skin that leaves a flawless airbrush look.  The application has a bit of illumine so it add a bit shine while providing a medium to full coverage.  It's also oil and fragrance free. The colors vary from Vanilla 10 to Caramel 80 (Revlon ColorStay has more colors).  I have dry skin but if you have oily skin I would recommend an anti shine just in case :)
