Tastykake Minis!

Makeup Maniacs, on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 I received a special package in the mail.  It was from Influenster and it contained some delicious treats from the popular brand "Tastykake"!  The items were sent to me for testing purposes only.  The opinions are my own (well, actually the opinions are that of my children).

Tastykake is now selling mini versions of their delicious cakes.  The box we received contained the Tastykake Peanut Butter Flavored Minis!  Plus, there were some other goodies in the package.

There was a thunderstorm happening outside, so my kids ate these treats in celebration of being dry and out of the rain.  Come see what was in the box and hear what my kids thought of the Tastykake Peanut Butter Flavored Minis:

STAR WARS Lipsticks by CoverGirl!

Makeup Maniacs, my inner geek went nuts when she heard that CoverGirl would be making Limited Edition Star Wars makeup!  I knew I had to get my hands on the 6 lipsticks that were a part of this cool collection, and I did!  I created a swatch video showing how these colors look in the tube, on the back of my hand, and on my lips.  Take a look:

Face of the Day

How are you Makeup Maniacs doing out there?  Today, I want to show you the items I'm wearing on my face to achieve this classic look.  I also want to tell you about a few of my favorites.

Let's start with the L'Oreal Revitalift Oil-Free Miracle Blur which is my absolute favorite face primer.  It smooths fine lines, minimizes pores, and helps my foundation last long.  If you haven't tried this stuff, you should.  

Another favorite is a new product that is a collaboration between Becca Cosmetics & the famous beauty blogger, Jaclyn Hill.  It's the Shimmering Skin Perfector in "Champagne Pop",  This gorgeous highlighter is perfect for any skin tone.  I put a little of this on my cheekbones, forehead, chin, and on the bridge of my nose.  

The next item I'm wearing is by MAC and it's Ruby Woo! This is a classic, blue-toned red, matte, lipstick that is sure to make any woman feel glamorous.  

Lastly, I wanted to tell you about the Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black.  This is a long-wearing, water-resistant product that lines the eyes effortlessly.  I love to use this eyeliner to achieve the purr-fect cat eye.  

In the comments section, let me know what some of your favorite makeup products are!  
'Til next time!

Come see my quick demo and hear my immediate thoughts on the Voluminous Super Star Mascara:
