I’ve talked about CBD infused products around here quite a bit. I plan to share even more of my favorite products in the future. Right now it’s just not a priority. But I still test new products to see what works and to get a feel for what I like. When I first heard about the Milk Makeup KUSH High Volume Mascara I admit I was really confused. I get why CBD works in the form of edibles or even skin care, but what’s the point in adding it into a mascara? I waited for someone to mention it in a review so that I would know that it wasn’t just a gimmick. Unfortunately no one even mentioned it. At least none of the reviews I had read/watched. I eventually forgot all about it and moved on.

When I went to purchase my Natasha Denona Mini Lila Eyeshadow Palette I saw that Sephora had the Milk Makeup KUSH High Volume Mascara as a reward. I hesitated briefly before finally caving and opting for the sample. I figured this was the best way to try it. After all it’s just 100 points.

So what is the point in formulating this mascara with cannabis? Well, as it turns out there is a reason behind it. They wanted to create a vegan volumizing mascara with fibers and since beeswax (a common binding component in mascara formulas) isn’t vegan, they turned to cannabis seed oil. They claim the cannabis oil fuses heart shaped fibers to your lashes without fallout. The creamy texture allows for smoother application while providing additional conditioning. This makes sense and sounds pretty awesome.

I don’t have a lot of experience with those fiber type mascaras. I find most of them to look really spidery so I keep my distance. But I just had to try this mascara. The wand is a little tricky to work with. The brush is very thick and sort of bulky, but a lot of those volumizing mascaras kind of are. It didn’t pick up too much or too little product. And I’ve used this mascara a few times and get the same results every time. I really love how it applied. Once you get the hang of the wand application is pretty easy. I wouldn’t say it was crazy volumizing, but it did make a difference. It also lengthened my lashes quite a bit and they even held a curl. You can see what I mean in the photo below.

I’m not the best at photographing my lashes. I’ve been doing this for years and I still have a difficult time getting a decent lash shot. I’ll just add this to my list of things to work on this year.

Overall, I’d have to say that I really like it a lot. I can’t say that I love it, but it did surprise me. I love how it made my lashes look. I didn’t experience any fallout just like they claimed. The wand is a bit tricky and takes some getting used to. The biggest con for me is that the removal is a bit of a workout. Which is odd since they claim a tug-free removal. There was definitely a lot of tugging going on and my sensitive eyes did not like that one bit. I’m not sure if it’s something I will purchase a full size of. I’ll finish it up and revisit during my next empties post.

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away I’ve been busy getting orders out. I’ve also been experimenting quite a bit so that’s been taking up a lot of my time. I forgot just how much work it can be. But it’s a lot of fun and I really have missed it. I’ve been thinking of sharing some photos of some of my treats here on Midwest Glam. Would anyone be interested in seeing some cute desserts?

A few weeks ago I talked about how much I loved the Sugarpill Liquid Lip Color in Vertigo. Today I will be talking about Hijinx. Hijinx is described as a deep berry infused with multidimensional teal sparkles. It swatched and applied nicely. Once it dried down I rubbed my lips together to bring out those sparkles and boy did it pop! I thought Vertigo was really pretty with the teal sparkles, but Hijinx really steals the show. I wore it with a few different looks, but my favorite so far is paring it with the Natasha Denona Mini Lila Eyeshadow Palette. That’s a look I’ll have to recreate again for sure! You can see them both in action below.

Overall, Hijinx was everything I expected and more! It’s a gorgeous shade that’s bold yet still very wearable. It did last quite a while, but you may need to touch up after eating and drinking. I’ll be reaching for Hijinx often. And speaking of Valentine’s Day, wouldn’t Hijinx make for the most perfect Valentine lip?

What do you think of Vertigo and Hijinx? Which one is your favorite?

Is it just me or was January the month from hell? I’m trying to remain positive, but I’m pretty bummed that this year is off to such a rocky start. Either way I’m pushing through it. I’ve revived an older project of mine so right now my time is divided between my blog and my business. I’m also trying to find out how to work in a doable exercise routine without killing myself. Managing my time has never been one of my strong suits.

I know I mentioned trying to use what I have instead of splurging on things so easily. But after the month I had I figured I deserved a little treat. So while walking around Sephora I spotted some of the Natasha Denona Mini Eyeshadow Palettes and scooped one up. The Mini Lila Eyeshadow Palette was just too pretty to pass up.

The Natasha Denona Mini Lila Eyeshadow Palette is said to be an extension of the existing Lila Palette featuring 5 brand new shades. The plum shade is what stood out to me the most. However, the blue also caught my eye. I don’t have a lot of blue in my collection. I really do favor the reds, pinks, and purples. I thought it would be a fun way to try something a little out of my comfort zone.

The shadows all swatched and blended beautifully. Even the darker shades which usually give me a bit of trouble. The shades all complimented each other beautifully and I was able to create a full look using this palette. Even though there are only 5 shadows you can easily create a few looks with this palette. You can see a look I created with the Natasha Denona Min Lila Eyeshadow Palette below.

Overall, I’d have to say that I absolutely love this palette! I do still find the full size palettes to be rather pricey, but I totally get why. The quality is really there. But for now these mini palettes are a really great way to experiment with the brand and see what they’re all about.

Have you tried any of the Natasha Denona Mini Eyeshadow Palettes? What do you think of them?
