My new mascara is the  Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara 0.14 oz.

The Roller Lash is the neatest mascara with packaging and the curl brush.

The brush is narrow and nicely curved which also worked for the bottom of my lashes. I did notice a difference in color, length, and curl. I needed about 4 coats of mascara and had to really work it in order to see results and even after 4 coats it did not clump, get dry, hard, or flake.

Benefit scores again with another great mascara.

zoya satins
A few polishes from the Zoya Satins 2015 Spring Collection in Ana, Brittany, Leah, and Rowan.

I created an ombre look using Ana on thumb and pinky, Leah on the middle finger, and Rowan on the index finger.

I am not the biggest fan of satin finished polishes because they tend to streak and are a bit dull. Surprisingly, this collection worked well and was easy to apply.

primers
Throughout the years, I have been using only a number of the top primers on the market. I don’t collect primers because I don’t need them all that much.

I am not the biggest fan of drug store makeup, but after exploring NYX and purchasing a few lip products, I can see why this line is a drug store favorite!

Becca is one of my newest beauty discoveries. I came across this line on HSN and bought Ombre Nudes Eye Palette and the Complexion Creme.

Both products are matte and highly pigmented. The ombre eye shadow palette are arranged from light to dark with the two darkest shades designed as brow fillers. The Creme is not heavy with a soft barely there dewy finish. The Becca foundation is tones down shine and very matte.

I think Becca is great in pigmentation and quality. As I started reviewing their line more, I noticed they have a small selection of pricey products.

It Cosmetics Celebrate Foundation
Every so often, I like to change my foundation routine. Sometimes I wear liquids, but during summer I go extremely lightweight with powder foundations or BB Cremes. I have used a handful of powder foundations and never committed to a brand. My current choice has been the It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation w/brush sold on QVC in medium.
