Overall Beauty Review with Fab Giveaway (ENDED)

Winner is Amber G


I love makeup and any time I have the opportunity to try out a new product line, I'm going for it!  So when Overall Beauty.Com offered to send me some of their fab makeup to review, I said "Bring it on!!!"

I knew the minute I read their website banner "Where Beauty Has A Little Attitude!" this was a makeup line for me!

I thought I would try the mineral shadows first.  I've never used anything but pressed powders in the past so this was going to be a first.  Look at the pretty shades I chose!  Aren't they gorgeous??!!


The Pink Shimmer was up first, it is so pretty.  Let me say right off that a little goes a heck of a long way, you just need a dab these minerals are so concentrated. I brushed a little on my lids and then tapped the excess off the shadow brush (that was included BTW) and touched it to the Ivory Lace to do under my eyebrows. Then I followed that up with the Smoky Joe in the outer crease blending it towards the outer edge of my lids.  The Winter Night was used sparingly along my top lash line and I was done!  For an evening look, I'll use the Pretty Gold in place of the Pink Shimmer on my lids and the Cinder (pictured on the bottom) to line my upper lash line.

I found the mineral shadows blended together beautifully and stayed put.  These colors go a long way and you need so little to get good coverage.  I would advise you to start light and then add the color where you need it but overall, I was very happy with the look.  

Now for the lashes!

Overall Beauty.Com also sent along a couple of their best sellers, the Magic Lash Eyelash Enhancer and Black Magic Mascara.



I'm all for doing whatever I can to thicken up and lengthen my eyelashes so I was excited to try this out.  Once I was happy with my shadow colors,  I curled my lashes and it was time to put the Eyelash Enhancer to the test.  I read the instructions on the website and got down to business.

To start, I put a quick coat of mascara on one eye and then carefully pulled out the Eyelash Enhancer wand, tapped off the excess and carefully touched it to my lash tips.  Just like they promised,  the fibers held on.  I touched the tips a couple of more times until I had the extra length I wanted and the extra fullness where I wanted it and then I sealed it all in with another coat of mascara.

I then did the same to the other eye.  


Well, I have to say, this worked like a charm, held fast and then was easily removed when I took off all my makeup a few hours later.


And look at the pretty custom cosmetic bag that was included.  It's by Erica of Little Worm Creative Crafts to keep all the mineral pots and lash products neatly stored.  Perfect size to fit in your purse or to travel with too!

I have not warn much make up for the past few years and my eye shadow is at least 5 years old. It is time to get with it and go back to using make up on a daily basis. I like the looks of the CHINA DOLL eye shadow. It would be fun for evening wear.
