I have decided to split this up and give it away to THREE lucky winners!  To win, please be from the United States or Canada, and leave me a comment.  Once I announce the winners, I will ask you your first and second choices for the shades of Shadow Stick, Eyeliner and High Shine Liquid Lipstick.  I will make a little goodie bag and include one of each of those, plus a fabulous mascara.

I have tried all of these products and I LOVE them.  The mascara is one of my all time faves (like Mally)!  It gives length and fullness and is SO black.  I have black lashes and this even darkens them.

The lip color is also one of my favorites.  It is super shiny and moisturizing, not sticky at all.  It is a combo lipstick (for coverage) and gloss (for shine).

The liner and eyeshadow last all day.  Mally calls it “bulletproof”, and the shades are beautiful.

If you have already entered, I will include your entry and I will draw next Friday, January 20, 2012.  Good luck!

d.j.v beautenizer Volume Lash

d.j.v beautenizer Volume Lash

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I love reviewing new mascaras. My favorites are ones that lengthen, volumize and do not smudge. A tall order? Perhaps, but I think I found a mascara that provides all three. 

It is d.j.v. beautenizer Volume Lash mascara ($24.00). This mascara, available in Pure Black, claims that it volumizes, conditions and smudge-proofs each and every lash. Volume Lash’s versatile volume sculpting brush is designed to hold plenty of its new, 3D film-coating formula to cover and condition all your lashes with nourishing oils. This quick dry formula prevents lashes from clumping while giving you an all day smudge-free look. Of course, when you’re ready to remove Volume Lash at the end of the day, all you need is warm water. It’s fuss-free.

I love that this mascara does volumize plus lengthen. It also doesn’t smear, but flakes a bit at the end of the day. Removal is a bit tough, you need lots of water to get it all off. Makeup wipes do not work on it. But, if you want a dramatic look, this product delivers!

This is available exclusively in Sephora, Sephora inside JCPenney and Sephora Canada.
