Product Review : Maybelline Total Temptation Makeup Collection

*I was gifted these products to review. All opinions are 100% my own.*

Thanks to Influenster, I was sent my first ever, makeup only,  voxbox!

Apparently they heard that I’m a lover of all things beauty related.

Let me break it all down for you using a five star rating…five being the best.

First up :

Total Temptation Eyeshadow + Highlight Palette

MSRP $11.99

Rating:  2.75 stars

I like both eyeshadow color stories. The problem is in the color payoff. It was just average in my book. I wanted the darks to be darker. Also, this palette was too shimmery for my taste (and wrinkly eyelids). For a girl in her teen’s, I think this would be great.

 

Check out the horrible job I did on swatching the warm neutrals. I realized afterwards that you are supposed to use the inside of your arm…

where there are no age spots…

to detract from the colors.

The far right swatch is the highlighter.

Now, the highlighters are what I did like about the palette. They were blinding!

Here is my face done up with all the above colors.

2017-12-23 11.22.38

Hmm…

It’s hard to tell anything.

BUT, did you notice my lashes and brows???

Total Temptation Washable Mascara in Blackest Black

MSRP : $9.49

Rating : 3.25 stars

I was impressed that this mascara didn’t leave little black dots under my eyes.

#AmITheOnlyOneWithThisProblem

This stuff doesn’t budge…

which means when I go to take it off, it’s a little more difficult…

and consequently, it leaves a mess around my eyes…

that I don’t bother cleaning up until morning.

I’m quite the looker when I hit the bed at night.

Good thing it’s dark.

Now, for my favorite thing out of this whole collection…

that I actually would purchase!

Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil in Soft Brown

MSRP : $7.99

Rating : 5 stars

This product is everything!! In my opinion, it’s a total dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer that retails for $23.00 at Sephora.

The pencil comes in four shades and the color I chose, Soft Brown, was spot on. The pencil is just the right amount of soft, so you don’t have to apply much pressure to get the color payoff that you need.  At first I didn’t think I was going to like the tiny teardrop shaped brush, but I do. This has been my go-to eyebrow product since I received it.

Final thoughts :

The majority of the collection is a pass for me.

BUT, I whole heartedly recommend the eyebrow pencil!!

Would love to hear your thoughts, if you have tried any of these products.

Lasstokki Sheet Masks

*I was gifted this product to review, however all opinions are my own*

2017-11-28 13.02.35

If you are a lover of sheet masks and all things K-Beauty then these new cream sheet masks from Lasstokki are for you!

At less than $1.00 a mask (which is unheard of) these sheet masks are as good a quality as those that I have purchased at $8.00 each!

#ImAsShookAsYouAre

For $10.99 you receive a total of 12 masks that target different concerns.

2017-11-30 13.38.54

Top row : Moisture   Bottom row : Nutrition

 

2017-11-30 13.37.33

Top row : Elasticity   Bottom row : Brightening

 

I couldn’t decide which one to try first, so I left it up to social media to decide for me!

2017-11-29 15.46.15

And the winner is…

2017-11-30 12.41.43

The Lemon was for Brightening and I was excited to try it. I feel as I get older, my skin gets more dull.

#DoYouAllFeelThatWayToo

Check out this mask.

It is comprised of not one, not two but THREE layers!

2017-12-01 20.40.48

Did you notice how moist it is?!!

Miss Oreo happened to stop by the bathroom when I was testing out this product.

2017-12-01 20.40.07

Check out the look on her face when she spotted me with the mask on.

2017-12-01 20.40.11

#CaptionThisPlease

😉

These cream masks are some of the most (if not the most) moisture filled masks I have ever tried!

There was so much still left in the package, that I squeezed it out and used it to moisturize my hands!

2017-12-01 21.03.54

2017-12-01 21.04.01

See!!!

I highly recommend these Lasstokki cream sheet masks. The value and quality is unbeatable.

OMG! This just in!

Amazon is running a 30% off Launch Special!

(Some restrictions apply)

That makes each mask less than 65 cents!!

Better get yours before they are all gone!

Dragonfly Sweater

I picked up this dragonfly sweater at the thrift for several reasons.

2017-11-18 12.17.29

2017-11-18 12.17.40

I liked it. (because it’s unusual)

It’s vintage. (I think)

It was less than five bucks.

I liked the embroidery, even though I’m not a fan of dragonflies. I do know several people that are though.

Half of it is black.

😉

2017-11-18 12.17.14

 

Apparently other people liked it too because I received numerous compliments (three to be exact) when I wore it.

2017-11-18 12.16.51

That never happens!

Army Green Jacket

Army green is still going strong in the fashion world, as is camouflage.

#ImStillOnTheHuntForCamoPants

But in the meantime, I happened across this Olive & Oak army green jacket to keep me on trend.

 

2017-11-17 11.25.59

2017-11-17 11.26.07

 

At less than $7.00, it was the perfect addition to my trendy, fall wardrobe and to today’s look of jeans and a t-shirt!

2017-11-17 11.25.54

Don’t you agree?

Side note :

Check out this video I posted on my Style for Less Vegas FB page showing what I scored at three estate sales…and showing me in the above outfit!

Desigual

Sorry for the late post.

#IAlmostDidntWriteOne

Life is a tad crazy these days and I needed a break from social media.

#ItsExhaustingSometimes

Today’s look features one of my favorite brands that show at NYFW :

Desigual

2017-10-27 17.41.24

 

This quirky Desigual blouse was a score from Family Thrift Center in Albuquerque, NM

2017-10-27 17.39.24

2017-10-27 17.40.57

It’s got all kinds of little doo-dads and whatchamacallits on it.

#LikeISaidItsQuirky

For that reason, I thought it was well worth paying the full price for it…

2017-10-27 17.40.26

of $3.99.

Don’t you?

 

 

 

Purple Pants

I REALLY pushed myself out of my comfort zone when I purchased these purple pants!

2017-10-28 12.09.58

I don’t know if you have ever noticed, but I rarely purchase pants at the thrift. But for $2.69, I thought I would give these Worthington (JCP) purple pants a try.

 

2017-10-28 12.09.48

Of course I had no idea how to style them…

they’re PURPLE!!

Luckily, my MIL had given me this embroidered denim jacket (totally on trend right now) that had been sitting in the back of her closet, neglected.

2017-10-28 12.08.37

 

I know my MIL did not pay $55 for it.

The jacket kinda/sorta helped pull the look together, but not really.

 

2017-10-28 12.08.55

Would love to hear your styling suggestions for these pants!

Come on Eileen

I wore this Eileen Fisher vest out and about the other day and felt like Wonder Woman.

#NotReally

But my pose looks kind of Super Hero-ish.

#DontYouThink

2017-10-29 11.04.45

I AM a super hero when it comes to bargain shopping, there is no doubt in my mind about that!

 

How much do you think I paid for this super soft and stylish vest?

2017-10-29 11.05.07

2017-10-29 11.05.14

If you guessed $2.99, give yourself a pat on the back!

 

I really like the neutral palette I have going on in this look.

I added a teeny bit of color to it, with this scarf I scored at an estate sale.

2017-10-29 11.05.54

 

It is really quite beautiful when unfolded.
