I originally started blogging as a hobby to share my favorite makeup products and beauty tips. I had been watching hours of makeup tutorials on YouTube and thought if all these other girls could make it big in the beauty industry, I could too. As it turns out, beauty is not my calling and this blog isn’t my ticket to fame and fortune. As the world turns, am I right? Fortunately after a couple of years, I found that This Is Noelle is more successful and exciting as a lifestyle blog with a mixture of fashion and football. The unique niche I’ve established has allowed me to enjoy writing posts and not spend as much money as I used to on makeup! However, I still like to dabble in smokey eyes and the occasional new product. While my makeup routine is tried and tested, I’ve incorporated a fresh mascara into the mixture- one that’s lifted both my spirits and my lashes within the last week. I purchased the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Mascara after researching the product’s campaign and watching application demos on YouTube. I’m always searching for the perfect mascara and although I adore the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, LL has given me more volume and length than the former ever has. Its brush head coats every lash evenly without going extremely clumpy. It also adds the perfect amount of definition and has a wow factor that makes me want to apply more and more coats (I usually end up with four to five coats). The only con about the product is that it’s nowhere near waterproof! I used to wear Perversion when I would swim at the beach but the last time I was at Kahala beach, I ended up with raccoon eyes! One downside ain’t gonna kill me now though, is it? I’m in love with this mascara and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for insane volume and length.
