I love the notion of change that comes with a New Year's Resolution for long-term goals. For me, I want to get organized, and not just with my schedule. I want to have everything in its place so I don't lose my mind trying to find things. This means everything from my home office to my makeup bag is getting a makeup bag. Starting with my overstuffed and messy makeup bag, I let go of the old makeup that I don't use and the makeup that is actually expired including my clumpy mascara.

Walgreens Favorite Find

To upgrade my makeup bag, I traded in the old with some new and exciting beauty trends that I discovered right at my local Walgreens , including a cool new mascara from L’Oreal called the L’Oreal Paris Butterfly Mascara. I was instantly interested to learn more about its innovative brush: The Butterfly Brush, an asymmetrical, ergonomic, wing-tip brush that includes flexible arches that is designed to lift the outer corner lashes for a bold effect. At only $8.99 this was one beauty steal that I couldn't wait to test out.

At home, I had a fun with this mascara as I applied its tightly packed bristles and winged tip that extended and lifted the outer corner of my lashes. Without much work, my lashes instantly had volume (actually 6X the volume) its soft bristles gently and effortlessly went on my lashes. This is thanks to its innovative winged tip bristle brush where you will find a radiant feathered lash look without any yucky clumps, flakes or smudges. As a contact lens wearer, I also loved it is ophtalmologist-tested that makes it safe for contacts and those with sensitive eyes.

Another favorite from Walgreens is the Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quads. I love the 4 colors that creates a bold and vibrant eye. I had fun playing with its three shades whose look can be varied between gentle and dramatic thanks to the black eyeshadow.

With just a few changes, I had a new look and a much cleaner makeup bag. Here's to an organized and glam 2014! Also, be sure to check out our giveaway for a simple way for you to update your own look in 2014.
