Get Organized with the eDiva Princess Acrylic Beauty Organizer

Spring has sprung and it's time to get beauty organized! If you're at your wits end over an out of control makeup collection the eDiva Princess Clear Acrylic Makeup Organizer can help you get your business in order :) I keep my everyday makeup in a large IKEA Malm Dressing Table (no longer sold, but they do offer a smaller version), Alex Drawer Units , and a Beauty Closet. It's the tupperware in the closet that's the issue. I'm one of those oddballs who loves to clean and be free of clutter so having things tossed together in tubs just gets under my skin. The eDiva has let me get rid of 3 bins and opened up a ton of space. For being so compact it holds so much! I was amazed that literally hundreds of items fit in to this cool little set up. I just had to share it because I think this really would be the perfect storage solution for anyone with a small space or smaller to medium-ish collection.

CoverGirl BOMBSHELL Review & $100 Gift Card Giveaway

CoverGirl recently gave me the opportunity to check out their amazing new Bombshell line and are also giving one of my readers a chance to win a $100 Walmart Gift Card! Just enter through the Rafflecopter below for your chance to get a bombshell look for yourself! To give you an idea of where you might want to start with all that monies I picked up a few products in the line to review.

Bombshell Collection Information
Taking cues from the new wave of bombshell beauty, with sexy starlets gracing magazine covers and lingerie-inspired looks on the runways, women are craving beauty tools that will help them stand out and feel sexy. So obsessed with achieving an over-the-top lash look, many women are “cocktailing” multiple mascaras, applying several different formulas to achieve the desired volume and definition.

The COVERGIRL Bombshell collection features three products, all of which are available at your local Walmart or Walmart.com
The collection includes:
·COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by LashBlast™ Mascara - $8.94
·COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadow by LashBlast - $6.94
·COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner - $6.94
 COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by LashBlast™ Mascara
Bombshell Volume mascara is unlike any other two-step offering available, features a first-of-its-kind Boost System that has two brushes and two formulas for MEGA VOLUME and DRAMATIC INTENSITY.  
Step 1: Extreme volume basecoat that loads on the volume with a big brush and mega-volumizing formula to thicken lashes; the result is volume that’s even and clump-free

Step 2: Dark, intensifying topcoat that seals the look with a dark, smooth finish; the proprietary micro-thin lacquer offers maximum impact and lasting power in just one coat.

Bombshell Volume must be mighty popular because they were out of the Black, leaving me to opt for Black Brown instead. I'm not a brown mascara kind of girl but I liked this shade, it's still dark with out being overwhelming and will be useful on low key makeup days. 
Step 1 gave a subtle natural volume and step 2 added definition. I will note this behaves like a waterproof mascara, it is very difficult to remove so you'll want to have a strong eye make up remover on hand. The upside is that it will last throughout the day with out flaking or budging. Honestly this mascara wasn't for me, I was expecting more va va voom in the volume department. If you prefer a defined natural look and generally buy waterproof mascara's you'll likely find this to be a nice choice.
COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadow by LashBlast
Shine Shadows feature reflective pigments that play with light to bring dimension to any look. They have a creamy, blendable, pigmented formula that sets to a shimmer powder finish. I love a simple cream shadow like this because it lets you enhance your eyes with very little effort. Shine shadow's glide across the lids effortlessly and you can build them up from light to full color. I didn't experience any creasing throughout the day, almost unbelievable because cream shadow's always crease for me.
Available in six colors, I purchased the shades Platinum Card and Copper Fling. Platinum Card is a metallic gunmetal with a lavender shimmer, this makes the easiest rock n roll smokey eye ever. Copper Fling was equally as beautiful, a warm copper rose gold that will look great on all eye colors. I loved these! The color and shine they give off are real stunner's on the eyes.
COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner
Intensity Liner is a precision felt tip pen with a smooth formula that glides on for a little or a lot of deep, dark sexy. The long wear liner is available in two shades, Pitch Black Passion and Chocolate Kiss, both providing liquid intensity for 24 hours of sexy Bombshell eyes.  

Some might look at this and say..but the the tube is so small.  Turns out that's what makes this liner a winner. The short tube makes it so easy to hold, you get a perfect angle of application. I have small hands and always have trouble with getting the "flick" right even now, this stubby little felt tip pen really helped give more control. Pitch Black Passion is a dark semi-shiny black. It applies fluidly, no dragging or missteps. This is an awesome liquid liner! I almost can't believe it's only 6 bucks. The result are perfectly exaggerated winged eyes.
 Now to the Giveaway! 
 Enter through the Rafflecopter below for a chance to WIN the $100 Walmart Gift card courtesy of Cover Girl for use both in Walmart stores and at Walmart.com

(U.S Residents Only) Giveaway open through February 27th. Good Luck!

It seems a bit crazy to be talking Spring before Winter, but I am having a downright love affair with Too Faced lately. They are having a moment with all of these amazing new product releases and you won't want to wait to check this one out. If you liked (or missed out on!) the My Favorite Things Set I think you'll be very happy with  The Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette that lands at SEPHORA today December 19th.
