BeautyADDICTS ShowOff Mascara Review.

I received a full size of this mascara in my amazing June GlossyBox (a great way to try new products)! I use so many mascaras and like a lot of them but I have to say ShowOff Mascara is pretty awesome. The curved brush helps add curl while I am applying the mascara and the formula not only makes my lashes look thicker but also a lot longer! I can wear this all day even in the summer heat and no flaking. My only tiny issue is I think the opening needs to be smaller as too much mascara tends to come out on the wand. But with how great it makes my eyelashes look it’s not a huge issue.

No Mascara

2 coats of Showoff Mascara.

BeautyADDICTS SHOWOFF Mascara.

Intense, dramatic lashes with one easy stroke! This unique formula offers volume, length and curl with Argan Oil to condition and protect. The curved brush hugs the natural eye shape to coat every lash while fanning and feathering. No clumps, no flakes, no smudges!

$20

“Pretty Little Liars” star Ashley Benson made her mark at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles last night. mark Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh shared her makeup tricks for creating Ashley’s stunning look.

Face:
”I started by applying mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 followed by
mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer to prep Ashley’s skin. After creating a strong, moisturized base, I applied mark Min-A-Real Cream-To-Powder Foundation in Light Medium 5 using the mark Foundation Brush, along with mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Light Medium under her eyes and around her nose. I set her foundation with mark Matte-Nificent Oil Absorbing Powder in Light Medium using the mark Powder Brush.”

Cheeks:
“For a soft, healthy flush, I applied mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Peachy to the apples of Ashley’s cheeks using the mark Foundation Brush. Then, I dusted mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Bronze using the mark Blush + Bronzer Brush. After her foundation was set, I layered mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush Custom Color Palette in Chica on the apples of her cheeks to create a finishing glow.”

Eyes:
“I started by applying gold and bronze shadow shades from mark On The Dot Neutral Eye Color Palette on her inner eyelids and creases using the mark All Over Eye Shadow Brush. Next, I smudged the bronze shade on her bottom lash line using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush. Then, I lined her upper lash line with mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner in Entourage. To make her eyes pop, I applied a thin line of eyeliner on her inner eye, making it thicker and winging it out as I brought it to her outer eye. I finished by applying two coats of mark Lash All You Want Mascara in Black to her top and bottom lashes, to make her eyes a stand out feature.”

Lips:

“For Ashley’s lips, I layered mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Coral Fixation and mark Gloss On Lip Gloss in Sunset Beach to create a gorgeous pout.”
