Makeup Items that I am LOVING!

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted something on my blog.  Between the holidays, taking care of my family, and working on my YouTube channel, I've been so busy.  I hope all of you Makeup Maniacs are well.  I appreciate everyone who reads my blog!  Thank you so much for sticking around and Happy New Year :-)
Today, I wanted to write about three makeup products that I have been obsessed with lately!  The first is the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in Soft Brown.

This is an inexpensive (costs $7.99 at ULTA) drug store product that truly gets the job done!  I continue to use my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Dark Brown, but just for outlining my brows.  I then use this Maybelline Brow Drama product to fill in the rest of my eyebrows.  It's a colored brow gel that not only tints the brows, but gives them definition with a comfortable hold.
What I love about it is that it applies evenly, defines & separates my brow hairs, as well as, adds volume without clumping!
Another newly discovered item that I have been totally using A LOT lately is the Lorac Alter Ego Lipsticks!  They are a little pricey at $16 per tube, but I feel they are so worth it because of their creamy texture and extreme pigmentation.

I actually own about 8 of these gorgeous lippies.  The one pictured above is one of my favorites called "Centerfold".  It is an awesome beige color that packs a punch and lasts long.  If you are looking for lipsticks that are true to color and apply evenly, check out these wonderful options by Lorac!
The third and final item I want to tell you about is the Giovanni Leave-In Conditioner for hair.  This is a great product that you can find at Target for $7.99.
Giovanni Hair Care 627943 Direct Leave-In Conditioner 8.5 Fl Oz
My great friend, Veronica, told me all about this product.  She has very curly hair and uses this to help with moisture and frizz control, so she recommended it to me.  Because I live in South Florida and it is always humid here, I wanted to see if this would assist with controlling the frizz in my wavy hair.  Well, it DOES!
This is a creamy, white, paraban free conditioner that moisturizes and builds body without weighing down my hair.  I do caution those with thin hair - I feel this is a product that is best for thick, coarse, and/or curly-haired folks.  And a little goes a LONG WAY!
That's it for some of my recent obsessions!  Hopefully, you found these mini product reviews helpful.  If you love makeup and enjoy all things beauty-related, be sure to join me on my YouTube channel called, "Mel's Makeup Mayhem!" 
Until next time Makeup Maniacs...
