I’m loving… Maybelline falsies, No7 Lipstick and lip pencil

imloving 1

1. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara – Brownish black
I’ve seen a number of my favorite YouTube Beauty Gurus mention this mascara, so I decided to check it out! I opted for the waterproof version, as I have sparse, stick-straight lashes and the lighter/dryer formula helps them hold a curl longer. I chose the Brownish black shade because I want a more natural look, but they also have Blackest black and Very black. So far, I’m really loving this mascara!

2.  No7 Precision Lip Pencil – Nude
This is the first lip pencil that I’ve tried and I really like it! I was also excited to find out that one of my makeup idols Lisa Eldridge developed this color for No7. It glides on very smooth and creates a very natural effect. This is one of my go-to products for every day. Some days I will just fill in my lips with this pencil and put some lip balm or gloss over it. The Nude precision pencil also looks great under lipstick, it’s nice for creating a natural nude!

3. No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick – Pink Lemonade
I picked up this lipstick hoping that it would be a good dupe for Laura Mercier’s Stick Gloss, I think it does the trick. I usually lean towards very moisturizing lipsticks as my lips often get very dry. This lipstick feels wonderful, I will definitely be purchasing a few more colors. The Pink Lemonade shade is a bit more frosty looking than the image shows, and is a nice pinky/beige that creates an almost nude lip with a bit of shine.

I will be posting more of these segments as I come across more products that I really love! Do you have any favorites that we should try?
