Miss Manga Mascara and Loreal True Match Foundation.

Yesterday I was at Target doing errands like buying food and the usual stuff.  Of course I had to stop by the cosmetic aisle with my friend! I heard really good reviews about the Miss Manga mascara so I definitely wanted to try that out.  I was also curious to try the True Match foundations.

After one layer of foundation and two coats of mascara.. I really did not like the way the foundation looked.  It did not make my skin look better or even the same.  It just made me look pretty cakey as you can see from the picture.  It especially shows around the eye area and clings to any dry spots.  The mascara, however, is really good.  It definitely defines my curled lashes.  However, it just didn’t give me as much volume as I was hoping so I tried adding another coat of the mascara I’ve been using, Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black.  Paired up together, they really made a difference!

Pairing up both mascaras!

 

The cakey texture is a bit more obvious after it sets:

 
I think I found my new combo for my lashes.  The foundation will be going back sadly.  I currently use the Misha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in the color honey beige.  It’s matches my skin tone perfectly and I’ve worn it all day many times.  Even after a long day, it still looks good.  It’s an Asian brand and not that expensive if you order off Amazon.  It’s just slightly darker than my natural skin tone but it just looks like if I tanned a little, that would be the color.  
Let me know if you guys want pictures of the BB Cream.

Merona All in One Tights.

 

Part Thigh High Socks, Part tights.

 Sorry for the late post! I was supposed to post this yesterday but I was feeling a bit under the weather.  Along with the Xhilaration leggings (see the previous post for the packaging), these are absolutely my new favorite.  It’s really part thigh high sock and the sewn into sheer tights.  The thigh high socks have about an inch of sock that can be folded down.    I also love that the hip area is a more opaque black and is similar to a waist control tight.  It’s not as tight as those but still enough.  However, it’s not opaque enough to cover your underwear so you definitely can’t wear these tights as pants in case you were wondering.
I think these would look amazing with black booties.  The quality of both parts of this tight is of premium quality, does not feel cheap at all.  I’m 5’3″ and got these in a small.  They are perfect length.  Normal tights are still slightly too long even when I get the recommended size.  These tights cost $12.  

I’ve had similar tights before but the “thigh high sock” part was really not socks and were more like darker opaque black tights and then somehow sewn into sheer tights by a thin thread.  Those definitely did not last long enough, like only 3 washes before it started ripping.  

I will have to update after more wear and washes but these feel like they are so much better.  I wish I could tell you what brand those cheap ones were but I got them at an anime convention so it didn’t have any or any tags. 

You won’t regret getting these!

Xhilaration Leggings.

I think I have a Target shopping addiction. Every time I go there, I just love to wander off and look at stuff.  Tonight was definitely one of those nights.

Tonight’s review will only be for the Xhilaration Leggings.  I’ll be doing the Merona one probably tomorrow so watch out for that one! I’m super excited about that one by the way!

I have a lot black tights and leggings in different black”opaqueness” already and thought I’d try a different color.  It was $10. They are super comfortable and thick enough that you don’t have to worry about it being see through.  The grey is very opaque (very solid color, not sheer).  However, it’s still not thick enough to cover panties line as you can tell from picture below and I am sorry ahead of time that I’m not in the best of shape so I do have body fat.  It’s not the most attractive picture I know but I do want to show what kind of waist band it has. 
 As I’m writing this I am currently wearing it.  I would probably wear this with a longer shirt that would cover my butt and vaginal area if I’m going to be going outside with these.  Or at least wear no-show panties. 

It’s another perfect item for fall.  I’d definitely recommend these.
