Maybelline City Bronzer

This is the time of year everyone wants to sport a bit of a tan.  If you’re not a fan of the long-term effects of too much sun exposure, the Maybelline City Bronzer is a great choice.  My favorite thing about this line of bronzers is there are three different shades available, suitable for complexions of every shade!  My skin is on the fair side, and some bronzers are way too dark to look natural on my complexion.

Colorful Lashes! Maybelline Snapscara

Many of you won’t remember this, but there was a time that mascara in colors other than black were very mainstream.  In the early to mid 80s, blue eye makeup was considered as neutral as your favorite denim.  Many women would sport their blue eyeliner and pair it with matching blue mascara.  Why would anyone stick to something as common as black?  It’s so nice to see this flashier options popping back up in the beauty wold.  Maybelline Snapscara Mascara is naturally available in everyone’s favorite basic black, but also comes in the three shades shown above:  Black Cherry, Deja Blue, and Ultra Violet.  This mascara applies clump free, and delivers buildable length.

Black Cherry is the most subtle of these three shades, so if you’re a bit shy about trying mascara in a color other than black, this is a great choice.  In the bottle, Black Cherry appears almost brown, but when applied it’s a deep black with a hint of cherry to it.  This shade is a perfect partner for the berry shadows that are so popular this season!

Deja Blue is a flashback to the 1980s for certain.  A bold, electric blue, this color is the pick for anyone looking to stand out!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it once again.  Purple is a brown-eye gal’s best friend.  If you’ve taken my advice and invested in some plum hues for your eye makeup collection, take it one step further and try Maybelline Snapscara Ultra Violet mascara.  This takes the purple eye one step further, and is perfect for a night out!  This shade is more subtle than Deja Blue, but more flashy than Black Cherry.

Maybelline Snapscara Mascara retails for $7.77.  Don’t my Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Review and Swatches!
