This mascara is... just okay. I find it to be quite clumpy which sucks. I think it is because of how short and stubby the plastic bristles on the wand are. It difficult to comb out through my lashes to separate and define them.
I also find this mascara SUPER hard to get off. Like so difficult. Lately, I've been trying to take good care of my skin and rubbing at your eyes isn't something you are supposed to be doing. Even waterproof eye makeup remover has a hard time getting it off my lashes.
The only thing I enjoy about this mascara is how well it holds my curl throughout the day. My lashes don't fall over a long period of time which is something I struggle with all the time.

Hello everyone! How are you liking blogmas so far? I hope you aren't sick of me yet. There are still a few weeks to go!
Today I want to share one of my new favourite products with you. I have had this for a while but rediscovered it a little while ago and have fallen in love.
I use The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner after I remove my makeup. It finishes cleaning my face and closes the pores. My favourite part is how refreshing and minty it feels. It's great!
I have noticed it really clearing up my face lately which is amazing!

To start, face brushes! A makeup look isn't anything without a perfect base so face makeup is where it's at! For foundation, I love using my Real Techniques All Over Face Brush. It is a super dense brush that is great for really buffing in the product. It has stubby bristles that are synthetic which is good because it won't absorb product.
For concealer, I use the ELF Flawless Concealer Brush. This is great for buffing out the concealer under my eyes and I also use this to apply powder under my eyes to set the concealer. P.s. This brush is a good crease brush for eyeshadow too
Real Techniques Blush Brush is my #1 for blush, bronzer and highlighter. It is big enough to blend out product but small in the sense that it keep the product controlled.
For eyes, I have my 3 main brushes I adore. First up is the ELF Eyeshadow "C" Brush. A super dense brush like this is a dream to use when packing colour on the lid. For blending the crease, I like the Eco Tools Airbrush Concealer Brush. It is super affordable and actually does a good job at blending shadows in the crease. Lastly, for the brow highlight, I like the Eco Tools Shadow Brush. It is a flat shader brush but it kind of comes to a point at the top so you can precisely place your brow bone colour.

Hello everyone! How are you? Today I want to discuss a sensitive topic... the bright, the bold, the brave red lip. If you are confident enough to rock a red lip, then hats off to you girlie!
Though for some of us, that bright fire hydrant tint on our lips can be a bit too much. A nice alternative is a berry lip! My favourite!!
If you aren't about that bright red lip, nor the fushia pout, this berry option is perfect for you! It is more subtle and toned down which makes it less of a pop and doesn't draw as much attention to that area.

|All that Glitters|
I have a growing list of eyeshadows on my wishlist! I actually have a post on that as well, so feel free to check that out ---> http://mademoisellemaquillage23.blogspot.ca/2014/10/mac-eyeshadow-wishlist.html
Follow them at: @glamstapp in instagram, twitter and facebook!
- Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo- by far the worst one. It didn't spray out any white powder and it felt like I was just spraying alcohol in my roots.
- Pantene Root Reboot Dry Shampoo- this one was just okay. It didn't absorb as much oil as it could have and it left my roots feeling tacky and gunky. I could defiantly feel that there was product in my hair.
- Salon Selectives Fresh 'n Up Dry Shampoo- this was the very first dry shampoo I tried. It does a good job of making hair look clean and fresh. It is also super affordable.
- Garnier Volume Extend Dry Shampoo- This is one of my favourites. It is makes your hair super fresh and clean. One tip I have is to spray it in the night before because it is hard to get the white out with this dry shampoo.
- Batiste Dry Shampoo- is my all time favourite! It is a little more pricey but it makes my hair look and feel like I just washed it. It makes my hair look fluffy and soft and you can't even tell I have product in my hair.
Hey guys! I have decided to take on a challenging task for the month of December. From now, until the end of 2014, I will be posting a blog post every single day!
The reason I purchased this concealer was because I ran out of my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer the other day and I needed a new concealer. I found that the Maybelline one didn't cover as well as I would've liked it to and this MAC one had a lot of great reviews.
The texture of the product is creamy and smooth and more runny than I thought. This, in my opinion isn't a down fall at all, if anything it makes it easier to blend. I started using a fluffy brush to blend out the concealer under my eyes but I didn't like how it looked kind of cakey. I found that for me personally, the best way to apply this is by patting it in under my eyes with my ring finger. I can still blend it out nicely but I maintain the amazing coverage from this concealer.
The packaging is also great! It comes in a little glass vial with a plastic pump that is very clean and sanitary. The only con is that A LOT of product of the pump so I would use like half a pump. Just be careful to not quirt out too much.
I would recommend this concealer to anyone looking for a long lasting heavy coverage concealer. This works great on both the undereye area and on blemishes around the face as well.

This month I only bought a few new things so I have been using up what I have. I think next month I will have some more "new" favourites just because of Christmas and the holidays :) a good time to splurge and treat myself.
Batiste Dry Shampoo has been my life saver this month! I finally payed the few extra bucks and got this dry shampoo to try out. It is amazing! By far, the best dry shampoo I have ever used. It leaves your hair feeling so clean, unlike some others that can feel tacky and goopy in your roots.
Another fave has been my new Mac Lipglass in the shade Cultured. I haven't always been a gloss girl, I much prefer the high colour of a lipstick but I am slowly working my way into the lipgloss world. This colour is a perfect light pink that I can top over almost any lipstick colour in my collection.
My last of few favourites this month has been the Essence Concealer duo. This has been doing a great job at covering up my blemishes throughout the month without looking cakey or thick. Super affordable too.
