Hands down, Maybelline. I'm a huge fan of their mascaras and foundations. I feel like Maybelline is a brand where you can get every step of your face from just them, and not end up broke walking out of the drugstore (I'm side eyeing you, Revlon). I will say they need to step their shade range up a bit (even though it seems they have with their new Fit Me shades they've recently released, so yay for that), but besides that I love them.

Lightscapade is much more of a cooler highlight than I normally go for. But, I'm a highlighter hoarder so nothing is safe from me.
It gives a wonderful glow to the face in the form of a nice sheen, as opposed to a harsh glitter. Lightscapade also goes a long with a variety of makeup looks, so it's good to have around for your most natural or your most dramatic days.

Crushes are links to things I'm into for the week that may or may not be beauty related - a blog I've recently discovered and want to rave about, a youtube video that blew me away, some awesome info I picked up, a song that's been on repeat on my ipod, and anything else I'm loving and I want you guys to know about!
OhHaiClaire (youtuber) - I'm pretty sure I'd watch anything this girl uploads. She's gorgeous, fun to watch, great at what she does, and not to mention she's ridiculously hot.
The Most Popular Girls In School (video) - It's rare that I find a series on Youtube that I love and look forward to watching. I found TMPGIS through wonderful Tumblr gifs (how else do we find out about internet shit?), and have been in love ever since. It's ridiculously vulgar - so don't let the kiddies catch you with this one. But it's hilarious and it makes me wish everyday was Tuesday (that's when new episodes are up).
Sherlock (television show) - Another "Tumblr made me do it". I have some weird obsession with British television shows, so of course I had to get into Sherlock. Benny Cumby's (that's what I'm calling this guy from here on out) version of the detective is wonderful to watch. Also, his peacoat game is STUNNING.
Once Upon A Time (television show) - My fairytales are back. And while I didn't think the third season would be that interesting (since the main "issue" with the show has already been "fixed"), I was totally proved wrong. Neverland has never been so...evil.
American Horror Story (television show) - I love that the same writers of Glee also write something as twisted as American Horror Story. This show is TOUGH. The intricate storylines and creepy situations are what makes me love this season.
What are you crushing on this week?

I was never really one of those kids fascinated by fairytales. I mean, yeah I've seen the classics - Snow White, Peter Pan, Alladin, all those. But did I ever really pay attention to the story lines? Not really.
Luckily for me, Once Upon A Time retells ALL the Disney classics so I can get my fairytale life together. Except OUAT puts their own little twists on the traditional stories - usually Rumplestiltskin or the infamous Evil Queen has something to do with whatever mischief is going on.
This season, the show's third, has taken place almost entirely in Neverland. Yes, that Neverland. Of course we do have Peter Pan with us - but he is NOT the Peter Pan we grew up on. At all. Just like the last two seasons, the plot twists and cliff hangers keep me glued to my television. There's so much going on in this show, but not in the way that you're too confused to keep up. I love that.
