{makeup} Va Va Voom

Over the past 2 weeks I've been using Physicians Formula's Va Va Voom Mascara to test out it's claims of being non-smearing/smudging and ability to get you the perfect Spring eye. I even tried using different eye shadows as well as my usual "spices" from Chanel.  But, before we get to that, how adorable is the packaging? I love the little shoe charm, such a cute added touch. 

The product did not smear or smudge during the time I wore it and came off pretty easily with my usual makeup remover, no hard scrubbing. It also has a great smell, probably the result of the cocoa extract and vanilla and musk infused into the product; that's why it's called the "Sexy Booster." I'd say it's definitely worth the $9.99 and is going to be one of my regular mascaras, I'm always trying new ones so I never say one is my absolute favorite.

Here are the looks I created with the mascara. I'm all about simple, especially when it starts getting warmer. Who wants to go crazy with their makeup if it's going to melt off?

Look 1: Used purple eyeshadow, blush, lipstick & mascara
Look 2: Used green eyeshadow, blush, lipstick, liquid eyeliner & mascara
Look 3: Used gold eyeshadow, blush, lipstick & mascara
Look 4: Used lipstick & mascara
