Oh wow! We’ve cut the year in half and it is summer time! Yes that’s right! July is here which is exciting as it is a) my birthday month and b) the start of my summer vacation. I just need to survive the next 2 weeks and I should be fine! But of course I will still be wearing makeup too, so I shopped my stash for some new products to use.

I don’t often review mascara: I have a few favorites that I have used for a long time and therefore do not feel like trying anything new.
