Current Favorites!!

I’M BACK!! Today I would like to tell you guys about my current favorites! My skin has taken a turn for the worst and has broken out so bad! I blame it on a bad skin care routine and stress. With that being said I haven’t been wearing much makeup but when I do here is what I’ve been loving!

We will start with eyeshadow we all know that’s our obsession.

My husband was deployed in Dubai and this is one of the gifts he brought back! The Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette. Let me first say Huda is goals. A beauty blogger who now has her own makeup line?? YES, please! The shades in this palette are gorgeous. It has easily become my day-to-day go to (when I do wear makeup).

The pigmentation is everything! I regret not taking pictures as soon as I got it since I’ve had it for a month now and have dipped into it plenty and as you can see it still looks new. It’s so pigmented that I’ve had to tap off as much as I can because I have a very heavy hand. The consistency is very soft and buttery. But the textured shadows have an almost mousse consistency. I apply those (and have noticed it works better) with just my fingertip. What I love the most is the endless eye looks that can be created with this palette. Soft glam, smokey, even a beautiful halo! It has great transition shades, crease shades, and a great selection of lid shades.

This palette retails for $65 which is easily one of my most expensive eyeshadow palettes and its sold at Sephora .

Next is these two Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour blushes. DSC00863 copy

I received the first one named Paarty for my birthday from Sephora. The second one I actually got from my Ipsy November Glam Bag. The color is Feisty which is a “dusty rose”. On the Ipsy website it has the 3 shades they sent out but they don’t on the   Tarte website. So I’m not sure if it was an Ipsy exclusive.

Super soft, silky powder chock full of true-color mineral pigments lets you layer on your glow with no harsh lines or chalky build-up. Its micronized Amazonian clay helps control oil & infuse moisture for balanced skin & seamless blending. The magnetized pan lets you pop your favorite shade from its compact to create a custom palette.

Something else I received in last months Glam Bag is this Crown Brush. It is the C141 Small Chisel Brush that “is great for highlight and blush.” AGREED!

I actually use it for blush and I love it. Before this brush I used Luxie’s angled brush to apply blush and I thought I’d never give it up. I was wrong. This brush is so soft. I haven’t gotten to the best part. . . this brush retails for ONLY $5.69! 😱

The grand finale is another Dubai gift. Chanel Rouge Coco in the shade Adrienne. It is such a lightweight classic nude.

I pair it with MAC’s StripdownIMG_0488-2

The lipstick alone is very creamy so I do recommend lining the lips before applying it. And it just so happens to pair so great with Stripdown. Stripdown in my opinion is such a classic everyday color. I usually use it as a lip color on its own if I want a wash of color on the lips. However, this lipliner can be VERY drying. On the Mac website this is described as a brown beige and I’ve seen it be very brown on some skin tones and more mauve on my own.

Overall these products have worked so well and I enjoy them so much!

Colourpop Mini Haul

Colourpop Mini Haul

When it comes to affordable and great quality makeup Colourpop never fails. In the past I’ve purchased some eyeshadows and this time I ventured out. I got a blush, some highlights, and a gel liner. To say I’m stoked is an understatement. If you’re online at all then you’ve seen that anything unicorn or mermaid is in! We’ll begin this post with my absolute favorite items I purchased.

Pictured here are the two highlighters I got which are Wisp and Monster. Wisp is described as a golden champagne on the Colourpop website. It is absolutely gorgeous! One swipe gives you an every day look while a few coats gives a bright “shine like a diamond” look. Monster is. . . I don’t know if there are enough words to describe its beauty. As you can see by the picture it looks white and that’s because its holographic (if you follow makeup then you know Kat Von D has some too). It goes on pink! On the colourpop website it is described as “a cute light pink opalescent duo chrome”.

The blush is a gorgeous peach. Holiday is described as a “mid tone pinky peach”.

I also went ahead and purchased some shadows that were transition shades. If I am completely honest I live for a simple every day eye. Which is basically a base with a transition shade and some liner. I normally go for browns but both these colors caught my eye!

First up is “Bill” as you can see its a cool mauve shade.

“Brady” is a warmer rose shade. It is perfect for a light dust of color.

Last but not least is Colourpop’s gel liner in “Swerve”. A very black creamy gel liner.

I was over all so happy with my purchase and I can’t wait to actually do some makeup looks with them! I also changed my hair and I can’t wait to show you guys.

Any Colourpop products you absolutely love? Any holy grails I should check out??

Until next time. . .

Chocolate Bar

Ever had that one palette that no matter how many different ones you own you always run back to?? For me its the original Chocolate Bar by Too Faced. I tell myself its the scent, the packaging, but who am I kidding! This palette has all the right shades for me. From two transitional shades and two highlight shades to amazing all over lid colors. If I could have one palette for the rest of my life it would be this one. It has the perfect combination of shimmers and mattes and enough range of neutral and vibrant colors.

Too Faced never disappoints when it comes to their palettes. Their shadows blend so well, are super pigmented, and  have almost no fall out. Thats very important to me because I want my pennies to be spent on well worth items.

The Chocolate Bar experience begins as soon as you open the palette and the smell of sweet chocolate envelops you. The eye shadows are pigmented with pure, antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and includes 16 matte and shimmer shades of natural browns, delicate pinks and luscious plums. Includes our signature how-to Glamour Guide with three looks to get you started.  -from their website

This is my travel palette (the love is real) and has had its share of bumps. Luckily its survived every drop and the only real damage is the pan coming off. When I do someone else’s makeup I use this palette 90% of the time unless they want something more dramatic. Sometimes I wonder if I should’ve gotten the Semi Sweet palette just to have as part of the collection but I don’t “love it”.

Anyone else feel the same? Whats your go-to palette??
