Lancome Juicy Tubes | Berry Bold, $18.00
If you were a girl growing up in the 2000s, there was no lip gloss more coveted than the super chic and girly Lancome Juicy Tubes. I spent many a viewing of Mean Girls secretly jealous of Gretchen Wieners's Juicy Tubes lacquered lips, wishing I had some of that Toaster Strudel money to purchase my very own collection of that much wished for gloss. So when I became a big girl with money of my own and started dabbling in high end makeup for the first time, Lancome Juicy Tubes were top of my want list. And after finally giving them a whirl, I can happily confirm that they are just as amazing as my teenage self hoped they'd be.

NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray - Review

NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray, $8.00
After spending your time carefully applying a face full of slap, the last thing you want to happen is for your makeup to go sliding off before your lunch break. Primers are a great base for giving your beauty products longevity, but if you really want your makeup to go the distance then a setting spray is going to be your best friend. After all, doesn't your nail polish last longest with both a base coat AND a top coat to seal things off? Thinking of your setting spray as the top coat to your makeup just makes sense.

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss | Quick Kiss, $22.00
When it comes to makeup, I love it so much that I'll take it where I can get it and try practically anything. So when my mother offered me a lipstick pencil from a brand I'd never heard of, I gladly took it off her hands. One of her co-workers had gotten it in her Birchbox and wasn't a fan of the color, so she plied it onto my mom hoping someone could get some use from it. A curious swatch had my mother deciding that red-orange wasn't her color either, and so onwards to me it came, finally finding a home in my makeup drawers.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a huge fan of eyeshadow palettes. Anything above a quad sends me into an absolute panic as I'm not the best at pairing random shades together. Because of this I often end up wearing tragically mismatched eye looks with colors in all the wrong places. However, I've recently been getting into nude looks, and not wanting to buy a bunch of individual shadows (oh, the anxiety!) I decided to take the plunge and nab a palette to save myself a bit of time and trouble. Not quite ready to fork over the green for an Urban Decay Naked palette, I popped into the drugstore in the hopes of finding a budget alternative.

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover - Review

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover, $7.00-$14.00
There is nothing more annoying in my night time cleanse routine than an eye makeup remover that can't get the job done. When I'm tired and all I want to do is crawl into my nice, comfy bed, the last thing I want is to spend ten minutes scrubbing at the mascara on my eyes trying to force it off my face. Instead, I want a kick ass remover that can take off even the most stubborn of liners and mascaras in a few swipes flat. I don't think that's too much to ask, right?
