L'Oreal Makeup Review from Influenster

I was lucky enough to receive this package of L'Oreal products for testing purposes, and all thoughts are my own!

Overall, I really liked all of the L'Oreal products that were sent to me from Influenster! I will probably be repurchasing half of these items again for myself.

Voluminous Volume Building Mascara
This. Stuff. Is. Amazing. But there is one caveat... It does leave some weird fall out and markings if you do not use it along with some kind of base coat. Before I got the L'Oreal lash primer, I was using an old mascara that I wasn't really a fan of as my "base" coat and that worked perfectly fine but without something on your lashes, this mascara leaves such weird markings. I had a few flakes throughout the day and would also somehow get mascara marks in my under eye area - I am still dumbfounded as to how this happened and where the markings came from - but I figured out that if you use a different mascara on your bottom lashes, you are golden! I guess you could also use the lash primer + this mascara on your bottom lashes too, I just haven't tried it myself.

So other than needing a base coat and needing to use a different mascara on your bottom lashes, this mascara is seriously amazing! It makes your lashes so long and just as the title suggests, you can definitely build up the thickness or volume. I didn't have any problem with mascara chunks on my lashes, and the formula leaves your eyelashes looking so pretty, thick and spread apart. This is my new favorite mascara, for sure.

White Dress and Pink Accessories

Anyone else love wearing white in the summertime?!

Personally, I am not super fond of bright colors on myself and have always been one for neutrals but I love adding pops of color to my outfits, especially in the summer! Partly because white is one of the easiest colors to match with bright accessories, and let's be honest, it's also partly because this is the only time that I have a nice tan and white accentuates that. This is simple look I put together for church and I ended up really liking it! These tassel earrings plus the pink Kate Spade purse just make me happy inside.

What's your favorite way to accessorize in the summertime?
