Product Review: Maybelline Lash Stiletto

Hey guys! I have finally finished all of my entry videos for the "Are You Fierce?" Makeup Contest and now I'm going to do a quick (and somewhat belated) review of Maybelline's newest mascara Lash Stiletto. Here's a pic of the product:
The packaging is really cute:
the container looks like a black stiletto heel with a touch of red (my favorite color!) The product itself does add length, although for me I still like Maybelline's Colossal Volum' Express the best. The wand was very comfortable to use and delivered mascara to even my tiniest lashes without clumping. Color was good and made my already long lashes look even dramatically longer although I really need more volume as opposed to more length and the price was quite in line at between $7-8 at Target. All in all, I'd rate this mascara at a seven out of ten--good job, Maybelline!

New Makeup Looks!

Hi everyone: I've just spent the day (off from work) doing tutorial videos for a makeup contest that I've entered called "Are You Fierce?" It's being sponsored by seven makeup "gurus" on Youtube and it works like this: you have to be subscribed to each of the seven gurus' channels, and you are to post up to seven makeup looks (one per channel) to win some really great prizes. I just found out about this contest about three days ago, and just REALLY decided to enter today. sooooo.....guess who's been coming up with look after look after look? YEAH, you got it...ME! Entry deadline is 12 midnight May 31 and I still have three more looks to do--AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH! Wish I could stay home from work tomorrow and finish up (sigh). guess I'll be doing the other three on Sunday, and hope that I can get them all uploaded before midnight. Anyway, here are some pics of the looks I've done so far:

red/gold cut crease look with some cute rhinestones added.

taupe/gold/teal look using black cream eyeliner as base. sexy!!!

aqua blue/fuschia pink/lavendar funky, artsy look with rhinestones and a little freehand artwork! Quite outside my normal thing, but lots of fun to do! have to redo the tutorial through, it's just a little too long for youtube!

this look was inspired by the beautiful stargazer lily. soft pinks with a "gilded" defined crease (bronze shimmer shadow combined with a matte brown). freeform lily petals surround one eye.
If you are interested in finding out how these looks were created, go to my channel page on YouTube and check out the tutorials ( Gotta go wash the locs now, so be blessed and take care...janel

Hey everyone! I know, I promised that I'd do a better job of updating my blog on the regular, but it's been really hard. I think that I've finally got a second supervisor, so that my management roster is filled--YEAHHH!!! She just started last week and it's going to be a whirlwind training session for her--hope she sticks it out and comes through for me so that I can finally get some type of normal life back! she has worked in fabric retail before, so at least the concept of what needs to be done isn't new to her, just the particular environment. Oh well, pray that it works out for me!

Anyway, I'm going to link a couple of vids that I've done recently: one on cutting the crease and one on a "drag" makeup look that I created for a contest. Hope you all enjoy, as this will be my entry on this blog. I hope to be doing a makeup product review soon on Maybelline's Lash Stiletto for you all--maybe this weekend since I'm starting to get my "two days a week" off again. Be blessed!
