Now you can have your MAC and eat it too! (okay bad cake joke... don't eat your makeup)

But if you love MAC and dont feel like remortgaging your house for a pigment.... I have a solution.

I recently found and placed an order from a company who sells legitimate samples of MAC makeup for a great price. 

When I receive my order, I will update this post and let you guys know all about it.

d.j.v. beautenizer integrates beauty with Japanese technology. 

"Through research, an opportunity was recognized that women were still disappointed with many mascaras claiming lengthening, no-smudging, no-clumping and easy removal. To satisfy these needs, the development of the film-coating formula was successfully created."

The box claims:
Beyond Mascara. It's Brush-On Fiber Extensions.
Dramatically lengthens, separates & conditions lashes.
Brush-On Fiber Extensions is a false lash formula applied like mascara that encapsulates lashes within a fiber-rich film.
-Dramatically long lashes
-Conditioning oils for lashes
-Smudge-proof
-Easy removal w/. warm water

If your looking for length, here you go! 

This mascara is a fiber filled tubing mascara. Sounds kinda creepy....

The wand is slightly spoon shaped .

It has a typical mascara smell, and is not noticable unless you sniff your brush. (ok, i get it... i am weird)

Upon applying, the mascara formula is thin and wet. I found that instead of really building up my lashes (in thickness and volume) I really only noticed it painting my lashes a shiny black. In order to get a noticable look, I had to apply multiple coats. This can take around 3-5 minutes per eye. Even after a few coats, I did not notice much volume.

Another thing i noticed, was sideways fiber pieces on my lashes. The horizontal fibers made my lashes stick to each other. =(

As for being a tubing mascara it was great. Wore very well, no flaking or smudging. When it was time for removal I was happy to see it slide right off with warm water. Many people have voiced having trouble removing, but I am a tubing mascara kinda girl... maybe i have it down to a science. 

I would be very curious to try this over a volumizing mascara to see how they look together. If I do, I will update with pictures.

Overall- I like this mascara and will continue to use it. I just really really wish it was more volumizing.

Smokey Blue Ornament
"Silver Sleet, White as Snow, Winter Sky and Dark Moon - 4 cool and smoky Crush Metal shades to shake up those holiday - and spring - looks! Tucked inside our couture-future ornament, ready to gift. Limited edition."

    So excited when MAC put out their Holiday Collection. I'm a hugeee MAC junkie and want everything (as do most other girls haha) I finally had a chance to get this Dazzlesphere! It's a little round packaging to look like an ornament and inside are 4 pigments that are SO gorgeous. Check out the cute matching bag they put it in too!
    These colors that come in this sphere are so perfect for the holidays, especially the silver! The silver comes out just like tinfoil color! Oh speaking of the holidays, how cute would this be to give to someone for a gift?! I know I'd be pretty pumped for it!
    With that being said, another thing I like most about this Dazzlesphere is the fact that they come in stackable clear jars. Makes it easier for storing them and seeing the colors from afar.

    As you can see, the colors are really pigmented and bright. But just as any other pigment, these can get quite messy. The jars do not have a filter on them so if you spill a jar, most likely it's all coming out and going everywhere! I'd be one very sad girl if that happened.   
    They are easy to use but the top two colors were a little more hard to work with, I believe it was because of the glitter in them, but after working with them a little they looked awesome on the lid.
    There are two other sets of Dazzlespheres in this Holiday Collection as well, they are: Plum and Berry!
