Lash-O-Matic Review | It’s A Fart

This has been the week of Wet n’ Wild products ,and so far I have only reviewed products that I have liked. So I wanted to do a couple posts this week on the “farts”.

This is in reference to my Wet N Wild Full Face of products video.


Let’s talk about the Lash O Matic first. If you have been around for awhile you may have seen my epic rant of 2015 re:Younique and their stupid fibre mascara. So I have no clue why I thought this would blow my mind. Actually, let’s be totally honest here I’m not sure I ever had that expectation.

Price: 11.29

Claims: Lash-o-Matic Fiber Extension Kit gives you unbelievable length and unreal volume. The quick-drying priming and sealing mascara is oh-so-black and the lightweight nylon fibers stay put. This instant lash extension kit gives you the look of false lashes in three easy steps.


To be honest with you my first issue with this, is that as a whole, it does not give me better results than my regular $3 Essence mascara. Not even close, it’s actually worse.

Do you see those fibres in that picture on the white wand? They go on your lashes alright and promptly fall into your eyes every time you blink before you are able to “seal with the mascara”. The application of the fibres on top of the mascara does not work the way one would hope. That is for sure. They bunch together like little lash tumble weeds waiting to infiltrate your eyeball at the first sign of struggle. This in of itself, is not for me.

The second issue– of many, all of which I won’t list. Is that when you do actually go to seal on these fibres to your lashes, the mascara wand just pushes them back off, they stick onto the black mascara wand and go back into the tube. ClumpCity! This is not good for your mascara, or your eyes.

As of these claims, I don’t agree with any of them, I don’t need three steps to get nice eyelashes, I really only need one. Thanks for trying Wet n Wild!

I hold firm that fibre mascaras are just trouble waiting to happen. STAY AWAY!

Beauty around the World

Hopefully no one finds stats sharing as crass in this community, but one of the most interesting parts about blogging, and blogging about makeup, is the reach that it has.

I had one of my best weeks ever on my blog, even better than when I first started three years ago and was posting multiple times a day. (How did I even have time for that?). There is nothing I can do for this great honour other than say thank you.

The amount of people from around the world that have taken the time to visit me blows my mind. There are countries I have never even heard of, which is definitly not meant to be insulting, but there is no way I was going to grow up to be a world traveler. I get lost in my own backyard and have no sense of direction.

I would like to share my country view heat map from the week, if you are from any of these countries I want to know your coolest facts! Teach me! Educate me! I want to hear from you!

When you agree to be acquaintance’s…

The last two years have been different, I keep saying it, and I keep meaning it. I can feel myself morphing, changing and growing into a new person.

This new person you might ask? IS STILL OBSESSED WITH MAKEUP AND NEW RELEASES SO DON’T BE FOOLED, but the excitement is not the same, now I spend more time thinking what I could create with it, and less about how the package is cute, and OMG UD released something new. Quality not quantity – yeah right give me more.

EG- The new Naked Petite Heat… Cute but, I have the naked heat, so why petite? Go big or go home.

Let me tell you one thing though, there is a product sucking me in and I’m not sure what to do about it… Do I jump? Do I take that plunge? There must be some meaningful quote about love and how much it can hurt but you can’t be hurt if you don’t jump? Where was I going with this? I don’t even remember…. The Moonlight Magic, that’s where I am going.

Colourpop and I had a discussion long ago that we wouldn’t really be friends. We would say Hi across the hall and give the nod of acknowledgment (You know the one I am talking about, where you feel like you are seen, but don’t particularly care to speak) and then we would politely move on like nothing ever happened.

But then I saw these. Screen Shot 2018-02-06 at 8.30.06 PM.png

And now I don’t know what to do. Is Colourpop into me? Why this sudden attraction? Can I afford this torrid love affair? Is it just the pheromones? I don’t even know what is real and who I can trust anymore.

What to do….

Maybelline Powder Matte Lipstick | Concrete Jungle

There are not many things in life that confuse me. This lipstick does. I picked this up from Walmart for $8.99 on the weekend thinking OOOO I love the Maybelline lipstick formula’s and this colour looks awesome. I’m going to try it, love it, and tell the world.


Nope. Not So.

What it’s supposed to do?

  • Pure matte lipstick
  • 2x more mattifying powders vs color sensational creamy matte lipstick
  • Glide onto lips for an effortlessly cool and edgy look

I will give it that it;s a creamy matte look and feel, and that it gives an edgy look. If by edgy you mean patchy around the edges.


This was about 5 swipes with the product, and although it’s a cool grey purple and I really dig the colour. I’m not sold on the wear.

Youtube Resolutions

Hi all,

After my post on Saturday I sat and thought about what I have been doing with my time, and for REAL this time. SO I made a video about it, and why I took a few steps away from youtube.

Hope you enjoy the video and it gives some perspective of Youtubers as real people 🙂


Happy Monday!

Boxycharm Product Fail – LAQA & Co Lipstick

As I sit and write this, I realize I have never actually written from the mobile app before. I’m waiting for an oil change and in the past while I have thought many times how I don’t do enough posting or things I love. So let’s start out 2018 with capitalizing on some downtime. Also forgive any weird formatting because I certainly have no idea how this is going to turn out from my iPad. (Thanks for the sweet Christmas gift husband)

Well, well, well. There is a lot of great things I love about Boxycharm, and discovering new and awesome products I didn’t know were missing in my life is one of those things. HOWEVER this is not one of those times.

In November I received a lip product that somehow managed to sit on my vanity until now before I decided to take her for a rip. Mistake. Should have left it. This product you ask, its the LAQ A & CO. Cloud Lips and retails at $17. No joke LAQ A & Co…. I will pay you $17 to keep this the hell away from me. I received the darker shade, which I was digging at the time I opened it. Who doesn’t love a good vampy lip?img_0285
