NEW Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara Review (+Life Update)

So how did that extra hour of sleep work out for you? I kept thinking it was time to go to bed...and it was only 8! This weekend was a low-key one for me--a good dinner out, a successful trip to the mall (speaking of, do you want a list of VIB Sale recommendations?), and I got some blog work done. I'm still having some issues staying asleep, still having occasional restless legs, but I'm the happiest I've been in a long time. I swear it's something about the fall.

I've also been reviewing beauty products, OF COURSE! Y'all know my weakness is mascara, right? I saw the new Covergirl Peacock Flare mascara at Target maybe a month ago, and I'm here to share what I think! Have you seen it around?

Let's talk packaging--can you see the shape of the tube? It's not a traditional round one--it's pinched. And the top is sort of rubberized--think kind of like NARS packaging. The shape and feel make this easy to hold. It advertises it as a "revolutionary" soft grip handle. I wouldn't go that far, but it's an easy hold.

Next, let's check out the wand: Feather-fan brush catches, coats, and separates each lash of this plastic wand.

Here's another view of the wand. Nothing really new here, but it's a pretty good one.

Here it is on your left. The formula is mousse-like and applies easily. It does give some length and volume. It says it's clump-free, but it was still a little clumpy. It didn't flake or smudge. I would say it's right in the middle of being too wet or too dry.

Here it is on your left again. I always say mascara really does make a difference. Don't you agree?

Here it is on both eyes. Overall, I liked this mascara and would give it 3.5 out of 5 mascara wands!

Covergirl peacock Flare Mascara comes in 5 shades and waterproof. It's around $8.

What did you think? 
Would you buy this mascara?


30 Days Later--Did This Lip Plumper Work? PMD Kiss Update

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own.

Y'all--I CANNOT believe how fast the month flew by. October is my favorite month (October baby here) and it goes by incredibly too fast for me. I bring this up because do you remember THIS post?

Here's a recap--this is the PMD Kiss. PMD® Kiss is a smart anti-aging lip plumping treatment. It uses pulsating vacuum technology and specially formulated serum to create a fuller appearance of lip volume and restore youthfulness to lips. With daily use, PMD Kiss will boost collagen and create long lasting plumped up results.

So I decided to try it out for 30 days! Here's my before:

Straight up, one of the things I am most self-conscious about is my lips. 

And this never happened until I became a beauty blogger. I have heard all sorts of rude comments about them. Can you believe I've gotten comments to never wear lipstick because of my lips?

It made me too self-conscious to even smile.

Also, in addition to having thin lips, I don't like the color of my natural lips. It's a pale purple.

So I had to give PMD Kiss a try, right? Ok, so I used it for 30 days, and here's the before/after:

OMG! Can you tell a difference? I can!! I admit, I focused more on my top lip than my bottom, because that's wanted to see a change, but I can definitely tell. I also love the color it brings to my natural lip color as well.

I am SO happy with my results! If you're interested in checking out PMD Kiss for yourself, click here and get 20% off using code PRIMP20 (excluding subscriptions and sale items).

PowerLix Milk Frother
Coffee lovers, you'll love these first two items. First up, you need this frother bc you want to play barista at home and have that nice and frothy creamer. Ok, maybe that's just me, but I've tried and owned a few frothers over the years, and this is my fave.

GO CUBES Energy Chews
First off, don't order these unless you can stand the taste of strong coffee. If you said yes you can stand, it, then keep reading. Made for performance: 50mg caffeine, 100mg L-theanine, plus other nootropic supplements for focused energy on the go. Chewable coffee. I keep these in my bag for when I am utterly tired.

AZDENT Teeth Brush Ups
Need something after that coffee breath or after lunch? Or whenever? This is another item I keep everywhere. You slip these wipes on your finger and brush around for clean breath. Nope, I don't chew gum and these leave mouth cleaner than mints.

Muslin Cloths
I don't use wash cloths to clean my face. I use muslin cloths--especially since I use cleansing balms for cleaning my face and removing makeup. Sometimes I'll add herbs to these, close them up, and throw them in my bath. These come in a pack of 10, so I tend to use one a day and then wash them at the end of the week.

Finishing Touch Flawless Women's Painless Hair Remover
Are you still reading? Good, because this is the item you NEED out of all of these, if you have dark facial hair, like I do. Yeah, it's life. If you're looking for a fast and PAINLESS way to remove facial hair, you need these. It does not hurt at all.

Kiwi Fresh Force Shoe Freshener
I have the occasional stinky shoe, and while I use dry shampoo as an instant hack, this is a million times better. It really works to remove the odor. Just spray.

LectroFan Micro Wireless Sleep Sound Machine and Bluetooth Speaker

I'm an awful sleeper. I awaken at the slightest sound, so since college I started sleeping with a box fan to drown out the noise. No other sounds work for me as well as the box fan. I've tried apps and everything. I used to travel with my own box fan. You think I'm kidding but I'm serious! And then somehow I found the LectroFan--it's a small box that gives you 10 fan sounds. This sounds so weird and nerdy typing this out, but it works. I swear by it. I recently found this much smaller travel version that also doubles as a bluetooth speaker. 

VicTsing Shower Speaker
I love to have music on all.the.time...even when I shower! I tried one waterproof shower speaker a few months ago and it never worked right. But this one has won me over. It's waterproof, I can skip between tracks, volume, and THE SOUND IS AMAZING. One of the best portable speakers I've ever tried. And it's water proof!! There's a new version of this, but this version has different colors.

Freshly Baked Donut USB Mug Warmer
I can predict it now--majority of the comments will be about this item, I just know it. And I see why--because this is a completely frivolous item that I love. It is exactly what it says--keeps your mug (or your hands) warm while you surf the web. Confession--I didn't get this off Amazon--cannot remember where--so look around bc the price listed is too pricey.

And now for the giveaway!
