Thanks for checking out my beauty blog!Also check out my new website www.amandapopko.com
Soo you all know i love using mineral products so i decided to give Maybellines a try.It is a great price from $11-$15 at most stores.
I like the container it comes it, it makes it very easy to squirt some out onto my foundation brush. It feels very light on my skin and blends easily.The coverage is about medium ,it will not cover blemishes ,but thats what a good concealer will do .
I have even used this on clients and they told me it does not even feel like they are wearing makeup.
This is what the website says about it-
Results clinically proven after 8 weeks*: 51% improvement in skin smoothness; 33% improvement in skin luminosity; 17% improvement in hydration
Lightweight, buildable coverage
Provides 8 hours of hydration
Tested on sensitive skin
Will not clog pores
Contains 0% oil, 0% talc and 0% fragrance
I like that its a good price and does not have all those harsh chemicals in it. Next time you need a new foundation give this one a try .
Have you jumped on the band wagon and started using mineral makeup yet?
So i want to talk about a great company that a lot of you may not know about ELF COSMETICS http://www.eyeslipsface.com/ You can order online ,and they have amazing prices with great products! I just ordered a ton of stuff and will review it when i get it.
For the price you really cannot go wrong and they even have a mineral makeup line!!It is actually 50% off at the moment and free shipping! WOW

Im so excited to get my package full of makeup!! :)
Soo i totally love eye liner and what is better than a GEL EYELINER! I picked up this fantastic one from MAYBELLINE the other day and its super awesome. I got the brown one ,but it does come in other colors like black ,plum and grey.
It also comes with a cute little brush that works just great.Its very easy to use and you can make precise lines with it.I think its way better than using a pencil as you can get real close to the lash line with it.
Its suppose to last for 24 hours,which is also a bonus .So far so good i wear it all day and it still looks great when i go to wash it off.It retails at Walmart for about $8.00
Here is how it looked like on,just at thin line
And a thicker one for fun
Have you ever tried gel liner?? Will you know?? ;)
If you have been reading my blog for awhile you will then know that i truly love LUSH cosmetics.Well in case you have not heard they are having a new contest,http://www.lush.ca/shop/tuca-tuca/
i think i might even make a video and enter!!Its for there new product TUCA TUCA which is an awesome new fragrance!
I already wear and love there Karma so i know i will love this one too
Flirtatious, vivacious and seductive; Tuca Tuca has taken the LUSH world by storm with its playful sex appeal. Mark (co-founder of LUSH) had been trying for years to create the perfect violet fragrance, but as soon as he heard the catchy Italian pop song “Tuca Tuca” in Venice, the perfume was born! With spicy sandalwood, smoky vetivert and vanilla for just a hint of warmth- Tuca Tuca is fresh, sensual and demands attention!
It also comes in a massage bar!!
Tuca Tuca in Italian means ‘touch, touch’ so we thought it seemed almost absurd not to have a Tuca Tuca massage bar to get people touching each other! We blend seductive violet absolute with fresh rose petal infused cocoa butter and a hint of vanilla for a gorgeous floral bar that will put you in the mood to massage. This scent is all about being playful so have fun with it-grab the bar, dim the lights and tuca tuca!
If you have not yet tried lush perfume,totally go check this one out.
So i picked up the Animal print- EYE TATTOOS and a Blue Mascara,i would have got black but it was sold out,so i figured blue is fun.
So i tried out the pink and black leopard print today.These are more for a fun night out or at the club ,not your everyday look hehe It was quite easy to apply just stick it on ( i used lid primer first) then use the setting powder with the little brush included.Now it is kind of hard to get it perfectly even and not smudge but i tried my best.It came out quite well i think .These go for $9.97 a bit more ,but super fun.They would be great for halloween too!They are also mineral shadow,100% hypo-allergenic, long wearing, and crease-proof.
Here is a picture i took of me wearing them-
I also got this Mascara-1,000 Lashes
The only problem i had with it was the tube and lid were hard to open and to much product came out.For 5.98 though this is a great mascara and it does have tiny little fibers to make your lashes look longer.I would like to get the black next time.It looks like this on-
They have so many cool products it was hard to choose,i want to get some of the plumping gloss next time and maybe some eye pigments.
I totally love the dollarstore and DOLLARAMA is somewhere i always pop into to see what they get .Well i hit the jackpot just recently with some great finds,now they were not $1.00 but $2.00 ,that is still an AMAZING deal .
First is this Gloss from Sally Hansen or they call it Smile Brightening Lip treatment,its suppose to make teeth look brighter and i think it really does!!!It also has a nice minty taste and a mirror the tube.
It came in a few different shades DAZZLING is more a pinky color
and the one that i like that i even used to do a Brides makeup last weekend is LUMINOUS its a more natural shade
Looks like this on-
I also grabbed a super cute blush
Its actually a natural blush from the Carmindy line ,and i use my fingers to apply it and it looks super natural and blends very easy.Soo worth the $2.00 it is good for everyday use!!!
Also scored this for a $1.00!! The elf eyelash curler!! Sorry didnt take a picture i have been using it daily ahah
It works quite well too !!!
So hurry to your dollar store now and see if you can get some killer deals :)
