Product Review: L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise

Happy Makeup Monday! One quick question, if you could only choose one makeup product to wear for the rest of your life, what would it be? If it’s mascara, you might want to go pick this one up! I love mascara, and this one just knocked more than half of them out of the park. Today I am reviewing the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. The color that I picked up is blackest black.


The tube is pretty heavy duty, a chic light pink look. Just simply gorgeous! The wand is pretty big and reminds me of the Better Than Sex mascara from Too Faced.


The mascara isn’t a wet consistency, it’s not dry, I feel as if it is perfect.


Moment of truth:

I rate this mascara a 5/5! It’s pretty amazing, as you can see for yourself. It gives me so much volume, length, and color payoff.

Have your tried this mascara? If so, do you like it?

Stay beautiful.

Skin Care Product Review! 


So fresh and so clean, clean.

Oh, sorry, I can’t help but sing that song every time that I use this AMAZING charcoal face mask! Hello everyone, I am here with a product review for you all! I received this product over the weekend and wanted to test it out and use it a couple of times before I gave my final thoughts.

This product is the TaraLee Natural Beauty, Charcoal Face Mask. This is only one of the MANY products featured in her shop! Her ingredients are all found in nature and her mission is to create a healthier and natural living lifestyle for all of us!! She was kind enough to send this mask to me so that I could test out for all of you and share my opinion on the product and how well it works. So without further ado, let’s jump it.

I would first like to comment on the smell of this mask, if you like citrus scents, than you are going to LOVE this one. I have tried quite a few of charcoal masks and they do not smell pleasant at all. It’s a good citrus, not too over powering, yet you know what it is.

When I first get a new product, it doesn’t matter what kind, I always test it on the back of my hand. I would recommend it, you never know what you could be allergic too. Once I have tested it, I always wash my face before applying any mask. You want to make sure that you have a clean base, that way it makes it easier for the product to do its job. Most of the time I usually apply the mask where I have the most break outs, but when I know that I need a good cleaning, I go crazy with it.

Charcoal masks are suppose to bring out all of the dirt and whatever is in your pores and under your skin. I find that a lot of those types of masks make my face look worse before it gets better. Not only that, but they are very hard to rinse off. I don’t know how she did it, but this one DID NOT! It seriously cleared my face up within just a couple of days. The first time I made sure to apply it everywhere and when I did I thought, “here comes the breakouts!”. Guess again, not a single one and it came right off the first rinse around. This seems too good to be true, let’s give it another go. This time I only applied it to where I know that I often get breakouts. You have got to be kidding me, I could walk out of the house right now and only have on my freckles and a smile. Perfectly fine with me! If I may add one more thing, a little goes a long way with this product.

I will surely be purchasing this product a long with a few others. She has such a variety of skin care products to choose from. She has everything from body and face washes to personal and oral care. I highly recommend for you to check it out. I will leave all of her links down below, as well as mine.

So, if I am putting a number on this mask, I would give it a 5/5. If you done believe me, be sure and try it out for yourself. She was kind enough to give you 10% off at checkout, use the promo code BEAUTYMEETSNATURE in all caps. Be sure and let her know that I sent you. Thank you for that TaraLee, that was real sweet of you!

That brings us to the end of this product review. I hope that you enjoyed it and I will talk to you next time!

No makeup Monday! 

Hello my lovelies! This post is going to be a little different from all of my other blog posts. Today I wanted to do a no makeup Monday, I see Demi Lovato always posts her bare face on Mondays. This is a picture of me just waking up, I did absolutely nothing to my face nor did I add a filter. Straight out of bed with a smile and happy to be alive. 

I feel that a lot more of us need to embrace our natural beauty. Makeup is a beautiful thing, but so are you. So for these post, instead of complimenting your contour, I want to leave a comment about your wonderful smile. I want to see you being happy for what you look like with out all of the glitz and glam. Don’t get me wrong, makeup is amazing! I think that before you go and put on another face, you need to take time out of your day to embrace the gorgeous one that you have. Be confident, don’t be afraid to show people your natural beauty. Show off those freckles or moles. Let people know that you are brave and won’t let fake eyelashes keep you from looking as amazing as you do. It’s important to accept what you look like with out makeup and smile, I love my face. This is the face you were given and you only get one, make it worth something. I would love it if you all would join me every other Monday and post a no makeup selfie. Let’s share the positivity for those girls who aren’t as confident. Let’s encourage and inspire women everywhere! 

I want to thank each and every one of you for reading this blog! I can’t wait to see your no makeup Monday posts! Xoxo
