We've made it to yet another Friday! *High five!* For the first time this year, my weekend is almost wide-open, minus a movie and pizza night tonight with friends. I've been feeling slightly under the weather, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's just allergies rearing their ugly heads. If not, at least I have the weekend to rest and recuperate. 

When it comes to weekend wear, let's be honest: It doesn't look that different from my weekday outfits. I'm a jeans/pants girl for life, and I love a good waist-cinching jacket with just a hint of tough (the faux leather sleeves). 

Have a good weekend!

New Drugstore Brushes—Are They Worth the Hype?

New Drugstore Brushes — Are They Worth the Hype? | Re-Mix-Her

There are a number of makeup brush companies that rule the industry, and for the most part, the drugstore has been missing in the makeup brush race. Some of the best brushes out there will cost you an arm and a leg, and if you buy one, there goes your makeup budget for the rest of the month. I was thrilled to learn that Wet n Wild had come out with a line of new brushes that are all $2.99 or less. Hello, happy wallet!

I only found five I wanted at a local Walgreens, but the ones I picked up I'm seriously impressed with, especially the eyeshadow brushes. The two I bought are just stiff enough to pick up a lot of pigment from my shadows and apply them without much fallout. And the face brushes? They are so soft I almost didn't want to dirty with makeup. I bought the flat top brush, the contour brush, and the powder brush. The flat top brush is great for applying foundation and buffing it in. I like the contour brush for applying blush, and the powder brush is perfect for buffing everything together to make sure all the powder, highlighter, blush, bronzer, etc., are blended.

Overall, I think these are a great value—and they're beautiful brushes with a fun pop of pink! If you can find these at your local CVS or Walgreens, do yourself a favor and try one or two. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Beauty Empties #7

It's time for yet another round of beauty empties, where we dig through the empty bottles and tubes I've been hoarding for the past few weeks and you listen to me ramble on and on about what I thought. I do hope you find my thoughts and mini reviews helpful. If you have questions about a specific product and want more information on what I thought, please let me know!

Hello, Lashes!

Hello, Lashes | Re-Mix-Her

Women are fickle beings, and the cosmetics industry understands that. Pop into any drugstore or Sephora, and you'll be overwhelmed with the multitude of mascara choices: volume, body, length, natural, waterproof, dramatic. Personally, I look for mascara that's both volumizing and lengthening that makes my lashes look as dramatic as possible. I've only met three mascaras that tick all those boxes . . . until now.

Meet the Lancôme HYPNÔSE DRAMA Instant Full Body Volume Mascara, the newest mascara to my list of holy grails. This is an intense mascara that makes my lashes look so full and so long, they touch my eyebrows (which is no easy fete). I know a mascara is a good one when I get compliments on my lashes. The formula manages to hold the curl of my lashes, and this mascara only gets better the longer you've used it. The wand takes a little getting used to, but the curved wand and plethora of bristles are what give my lashes that full-of-body, volumized look. I'm hooked!

Welcome back from the weekend! How was yours? Mine was jam-packed: two concerts, dinner, drinks, a party for the big game last night. Can I have another day off to recover from the weekend . . . and to clean my apartment and office? Oh, the life a twenty-something adult. 

When it comes to kicking off the week in style, my go-to is neutrals. If my closet was filled with black, grey, brown, and a smattering of white (and maybe a cobalt blue or red), I would be one happy girl. I wore this look last week to have an afternoon work session at one of my favorite coffee shops in Midtown Omaha called Delice. If you're ever in the area, you must stop!
