ShopNBC's "Beautiful You" Beauty Weekend: Reviews and Beauty Giveaway worth $180

ShopNBC's "Beautiful You" Beauty Weekend: Reviews and Beauty Giveaway 

Join me and ShopNBC for their "Beautiful You" beauty weekend, March 23rd and 24th. They'll be featuring their favorite hair, body, and face products the next two days, just in time for spring! I'm a huge beauty junkie, so I've been having a blast playing around with the beauty kit they sent me. And don't worry--they sent an extra kit for you too! Read on and don't forget to enter the giveaway.

Left to right: Pin-up Pout Plumping Lipstick in "Marilyn" (c/o Lola Cosmetics) | Brush-on Eyelash Fibers (c/o Magnifibres) | Scandal Queen Black Mascara (c/o Fairydrops)

Pin-up Pout Plumping Lipstick in "Marilyn" by Lola Cosmetics - This plumping lipstick is creamy and lightweight. It tingles ever so slightly when you put it on. The shade is lovely, but not as red as I thought it would be--it has some pink in it. It's more of a flattering deep berry red that adds just the right amount of color without being too bright. The formula is very moisturizing and non-drying, but wear it with some lipliner, as it does bleed a little. Bonus: the lipstick cap has a built-in mirror that pops up when uncapped! Clever.

Brush-on Eyelash Fibers by Magnifibres - I was hesitant to try this because it looked like something that would clump up and/or get into your eyes easily. I'm so glad I ended up using it, because now I'm hooked! They these tiny little fluttery fibers that you carefully brush on after a coat of mascara add instant volume and length. After you brush them on and wait about 30 seconds, you brush on another coat and they instantly blend in with you lashes, extending them without clumping or looking crazy--it's magical and so easy to use. I use this with the Fairydrops mascara, mentioned below.

Scandal Queen Black Mascara by Fairydrops - I've heard so many good things about this mascara (it's super popular in Japan and all of Asia) and have been wanting to try it so badly! It has a nice curved brush that catches and separates all your lashes. I really love the formula because it holds a curl well, doesn't clump, doesn't smudge, and adds natural looking volume and length. Great for everyday, and even better with the eyelash fibers mentioned above. It's easy to remove too--no raccoon eyes!

And now for the giveaway!
