My favorite makeup item is mascara. I feel like I look a bit more alive and put together when I wear it. I like my mascara to be noticeably lengthening and volumizing. I also like it to be water and smudge proof.
If you like more subtle, natural mascara I’d recommend this one from Lauren Brooke. I can hardly tell that I’ve applied it.
I often struggle with smudging. Even my waterproof mascara smudges a bit sometimes. When I first tried this mascara I was using coconut oil as a moisturizer. Do NOT use an oil moisturizer with this mascara. You may be mistaken for a raccoon. Using cream moisturizers I have far less smudging with this mascara.
If you don’t struggle with smudging and you prefer a natural effect, this mascara would be great for you!
These pressed eyeshadow duos have a wonderful silky texture. They blend very well and have pretty decent pigmentation.
The shades Smokey Plum, and Sweet Pea aren’t exactly my speed but there are tons of other color combinations available on Lauren Brooke’s website for any skin tone or color preference!
I had some creasing pretty quickly after applying so I would recommend using a primer with this.
I’m not much of an eyeliner wearer. I physically struggle with applying it. Normally, my eyelids will end up looking about as neat and “on fleak” as a two-year old’s coloring book. I did, however, give this eyeliner a shot. It is very creamy and easy to apply. For a subtle look, just lightly lining my upper lashes with this brown liner gave me a slightly different look than I normally get with just mascara. It’s nice for a little change every now and again.
Since I don’t use eyeliners very often, I decided to try this as an eyebrow pencil. Even though I have dirty blonde brows, and the pencil is dark brown, it works! It needs to be applied very, very gently, but it blends like a dream.
Out of these three products, I would repurchase the eyeliner (as a brow pencil), and the eyeshadow duo in other colors (as long as I find a non-toxic primer… any recommendations?). The mascara wasn’t as dramatic and long lasting as I’d like.

Eyeshadow is a beautiful addition to any makeup look whether you go for neutral shades or bright colors. Or maybe you prefer cream shadows over powder. For many of us, no matter the amount of effort we put into blending our beautiful pigments, it always creases. Every time we close our eyes the is a nice thick band of clumpy eyeshadow in the crease of out eyelid. Yum. My current go-to product, to avoid that clumpy issue, is Tarte’s Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick…read more
Vapour Beauty makes beauty products from non-toxic, natural, organic and mineral ingredients. All of their products are a beautiful quality inside beautiful packaging. On their website, there is a list of dupes where you can find clean replacements for your favorite cult products. Their Lipstick, in the color Purr, is a dupe for Nars’ Lipstick in the color Sex Machine. I’ve had heart eyes for Nars’ Sex Machine for quite a while but did not want the less than desirable ingredients. I’m so glad I found Vapour’s Purr…read more
