New from Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara $24 USD
I took advantage of the first to try VIB Rogue exclusive of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara.  Not much to say but look at the pictures.  The formula is not as wet as the "They're Real" mascara.  But the length it gives is so out there which is good.  It does last and even after rubbing my eyes I do not experience any fall out or racoon eyes, another plus!!
But personally I am more into volume I need it, I want it and this just didn't deliver in that.  I still want to put on falsies.  But I think this will be great for my friend Annette she already has beautiful full lashes but they don't curl and who doesn't want atleast longer lashes.
From the Benefit Cosmetics website
It’s a roller for lashes! The eye-opening Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush grabs, separates, lifts and curls…while the instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours.

I would pick up the full size  but I would still pair it up with my favorite drugstore volumizing mascara.  But this is available at Sephora and Ulta yet as of today not on the Benefit Cosmetics website until the 27th.

NEW From L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Smokissime

Loreal has bee stepping up their game.  I am so glad that they were early in releasing their new products ahead of the normal Spring 2015 release dates. 

I have been all over trying to find all the new products.  But as usual I am not special so I experience all the same things my bloreaties do.  The products are either not available, already picked through of ALL the popular colors and or the price tag is a bit more steep in price than you hoped for. :(

TAGLINE - Foam tip applicator for easy application.  Instantly blends color, no smudging needed.  Up to 14 hours of smoky perfection.

Taken from Loreal Website
Smoky perfection is now easily achievable in just one step. The new powder eyeliner pen features a revolutionary foam tip applicator to instantly blend color, creating a defined smoky eye with no smudging needed.

The gel-like powder formula housed in the product cap glides on easily, for a smoky finish that lasts up to 14 hours.

A.  The tip is a sponge that makes the smokey effect.
B.  The product is in the cap.  So everytime it hit the cap (hear that click) it replenishes the tip.
C.   Once applied to skin it will do all the work for you. 
Honesly if you look at the pictures it's not INTENSE enough for me.  I want straight black!  I put these pics to show what difference eyelashesand brows make. 
Fo those that just quite don't get the hang of the smokey eye,  these are perfect.  It is a much cheaper alternative to the Tarina Tarantino magic hour smudge pens that can go for a whopping 20 bucks each.  But these loreal ones last much longer like they claimed.  I recommend to atleast one in your aresenal for a quick look.

Well maybe next year

No one wins the palette -  Thumbs up to my pal Annette who followed the rules but she was a previous follower and did not qualify for the prize.
But 2015 I will see where this goes -  With the purchase of a new home the budget for buying all the new makeup products is a bit limited.  But the love for makeup hasn't changed.  I will still buy makeup and try to write about it.
But bare with me my blogreaties.  I will love suggestions from you on what to do next.  So i will be hopeful for 2015 and hope to get more followers.
Angel Pacific!
