Makeup Of The Week

This past week I wore more makeup than usual. I’m not sure what it was but for me makeup is therapeutic. Or perhaps with my “bold” hair I needed makeup to feel evened out. LOL! No worries my hair won’t stay this gold. We’re going to give it a break before bleaching it one more time and then toning it, can’t wait!

Am I the only one that sometimes likes to go soft on the eyes and just focuses on the skin? I absolutely love how healthy my skin looked on this day.

IMG_0426-2-2

This day I went a little bolder trying to slowly work up the courage to try a “sunset eye”. Have you seen that trend? It’s supposed to be the shizz this summer. In the center of the lid I have Colourpop’s Super Shock Pressed Pigment in “Animal”. How gorgeous is it?? In person it has a goldish sheen to it.

IMG_0489-2

I feel like this hair called for a bold pinup’ish look. I had so much fun with this look. To achieve this eye look I used Kat Von D’s “Shade & Light Contour Eye Palette”. It has to prettiest warm and cool browns. To highlight I used the sample of Urban Decay’s highlighter I received in my Ipsy May Glam Bag. On the lips I have a combination of NYX’s Lingerie “#05 Beauty Mark” and on the center is Milani’s “#10 Adorable”.

Although I wasn’t wearing makeup the whole week the days I did cake it on I was so happy with my looks. I tend to go soft and lately I’ve been feeling bold and going for more bold looks. Definitely stepping out of my comfort zone!

Whats your “Go To” look? Is it glam or simple??

Spring. . . Will it ever come?!

If like me you are up north/midwest then you know spring is never coming for us. When I was still in Florida spring was in full bloom at a nice sunny 70+ degrees. But just because it doesn’t feel like spring doesn’t  mean it is not spring because technically it is. That’s how I justified my spring look!

IMG_6462-2

As you can see we are still in sweaters 😩 To achieve this look I used my new favorite shadows: Colourpop pressed shadows!

IMG_6457-2.jpg

I went for a halo eye but sadly didn’t get a good pic. I however wanted to put the focus on my skin. I wanted to make it look healthy, hydrated, and glowy!

IMG_6461-2

  • Primer: Milk Cosmetics “Blur stick”
  • Foundation: Wet n Wild
  • Concealer: Tarte “shape tape”
  • Setting powder: RCMA
  • Bronzer: Benefits “Hoola bronzer”
  • Blush: Milani’s “Luminoso”
  • Eye Primer: Mac Pro longwear Paint pot
  • Eyeshadow: Colourpop Cosmetics “Wake up call & a mili” Makeup Geek “cocoa bear”
  • Eyeliner: Kat Von D
  • Highlight: Laura Geller “gilded honey”
  • Lips: Lipliner Mac “spice” NYX’s Liquid Lipstick “bedtime flirt”
  • Mascar: L’oreal “Telescoptic”
  • Setting spray: Mac “Fix +”

IMG_6463-2

Overall I was so happy with this look and I definitely feel like it can be played up with some fluttery lashes and a bold lip. As you can see I was just at home with my little and I never felt like it was “too much”.

Whats your favorite look?

Until next time. . .

Ipsy

Ipsy February Glam Bag

This months Ipsy’s glam bag was themed “Much Love”. dsc_0140The bag is a denim material with a bright orange zipper. I’ve had Ipsy for over a year and I’m happy with it. I’ve been introduced to some amazing companies and with their discounts and promotions I’ve gotten so many great items for cheap.

dsc_0157

One of those great things I’ve been introduced to and have purchased myself is Luxie Beauty products. I like that they’re vegan and synthetic. Through Ipsy I’ve gotten an angled brush I use in my every day routine for blush. This here is their actual blush brush which I read was good for applying highlight.

Purchased with their 30% off offer I got several eye brushes. I AM OBSESSED! They’ve all been rose gold but they have onyx noir and the dreamcatcher collection which is a pretty periwinkle.

 dsc_0159

Up next is NYX’s butter lipstick. I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know if I love it, yet. I usually love NYX products so I can’t wait to try it. These retail for  $6 on the NYX website

“Treat your lips to a kiss of smooth, creamy color with our irresistible Butter Lipsticks in 12 new luscious shades. The formula’s delicate satin texture fused with highly saturated color delivers full-yet-lightweight coverage with a luxurious satin finish.” –NYX

dsc_0161

I’ve received many bellapierre products and with them its a hit or miss. Some I’ve loved some I hated. . . Hate is such a strong word, I’ve disliked. LOL! This is the Volumelash waterproof mascara. I haven’t tried it but as I was checking it out I noted it has no smell (yay) and the bristles are spaced which means it’ll work awesome to separate the lashes.

“The innovative brush and formula of Volume Lash Waterproof Mascara provide thicker, fuller lashes that won’t clump or flake throughout the day. Vitamin E and Castor Oil work to strengthen lashes, ensuring lashes stay healthy and beautiful.” –bellapierre  

dsc_0168

I’ve been giving myself my own manicures since having the baby because there is no time to go to a nail salon so of course I was excited when I saw I was getting this product. The color itself is a little funky and it seems to have separated in the bottle. This could be because it sat in our mailbox for a few days in Florida heat. I’ve never tried any of this company’s products but I have high hopes because it is vegan and cruelty free. The name of the polish is $12 latte, how cute?!? Trust Fund Beauty

dsc_0166dsc_0164 This products reminds me of something similar I own and I swear by. The Sephora Collection: Solid Brush Cleaner. I LOVE IT! I am hoping I love this just as much because it smells amazing. This is the Japonesque Coconut Solid Brush Cleaner. It is a goat milk formula product . . . kinda weird. This is sold at Ulta I’m not sure where else.

” Maintain the beauty of your brushes with Japonesque’s gentle goat-milk cleansing balm in this Solid Brush Cleanser. Effective emollient formula quickly dissolves make-up and impurities to deep cleanse and condition your brush bristles for effortless professional brush cleaning. Freshly scented and coconut scented solid formulas deliver instant mess-free results and is the perfect travel-friendly cleansing companion.” –Ulta 

The next Wet N Wild highlights came with my bag because I redeemed points. With Ipsy for every product you review you get points and when you accumulate enough points you can redeem them for products. I’ve done this plenty of times for stuff I’ve received in my bag and wanted more of. I’m not sure if these highlights were the ones everyone was raving about but for free I can’t complain. I honestly stick to two highlighters. My Laura Geller Gilded Honey and the Balms Mary-Lou Manizer. It’s exciting to try new stuff.

First up is Crown of my Canopy which is a peachy color and the second is Precious Petals which is a gold shade. I didn’t swatch them but I did look up reviews and everyone seems to love them! Yay!! Do you own these highlighting powders? Do you love them?

dsc_0142

dsc_0147

Over all I was so pleased with my Feb Ipsy bag. I’ve been debating whether to keep my subscription or not but every time I go to cancel it I see next months products and I just can’t. I have noticed the bags have improved the more I review what I receive so if you have an Ipsy subscription make sure you’re reviewing. Not only will it personalize your bag it will rack up those points! lol!

How was your Ipsy bag? Do you have any of these products, thoughts??

Ipsy, Makeup, Monday Favorites, Uncategorized

Monday Favorites!!

I am so beyond ecstatic for today’s post! After a month’s wait my personalized Hoola Bronzer finally arrived. When everyone started posting their Hoola I thought it was something they were only doing for makeup gurus. Then one lovely day my BFF was like, “Have you seen this?!” It was on the Benefit website that anyone can get a personalized Hoola. 😄For a few extra dollars I have my own personalized bronzer. With my name on it. EEEEEKKKKK!!!!! (LOL) I’m going to be 100% honest . . . I can’t make myself use it. This is huge. I think anyone who loves makeup like I do secretly dreams about having their name on a product!

PrisHOOLA
It has my name on the bronzer and the brush it comes with. 

ESSIEOPI

Another Monday favorite is this Essie nailpolish in #753 fashion playground. I received this in an Ipsy bag many months ago and have only just used it. I think the minty color is perfect for spring. I like using the O.P.I top coat. It’s the only clear top coat that last through many pool visits. It’s all I use.

NYXPEACHESANDCREAMNYXSTRAWBERRYPARFAITNYXRASPBERRYTART

Lastly, is NYX’s Butter Glosses. I love the formula for these. Its nice and thick without being sticky or slimy. Usually one swipe of these is enough but it can be built to a deeper color without it being overpowering. If I had to compare these to anything it’d be Mac’s Cremesheen Glass. Here I have Peaches and cream, Strawberry Parfait, and Raspberry Tart. As you can guess Peaches and Cream is a soft peach color, Strawberry parfait is a soft pink, and Raspberry tart looks like it would be a deep purple but it actually looks like a light burgundy but can be piled on for a darker berry color. (Side note, my 3yr. old got this because she wanted a purple lipstick.)😂

These products have been my favorite for a while. I have repurchased many of them over and over. They’re here to stay!

What are some of the products you love to repurchase?? Or which have been your favorites as of laretely?

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!

Love to Hate, Hate to Love

IMG_2381

I want to apologize in advance for skipping Fridays/Weekends #MOTD and Mondays Fave so today to make it up I’m going to show you a few things. Lets start with my Monday Faves.

As I mentioned I was on a hunt for the Milani 2 in 1 foundation. I have tried many many drug store foundations and have had absolutely BAD luck with all of them. I usually get oily through the day but I also have dry patches. I don’t know whats the deal with that. When I try a new foundation I do some things before giving up on it. I try different moisturizers with it, different primers, and different concealers. By far this foundation has held up. I can already tell it will become a staple in my collection. If I had to compare to another foundation I’d say it reminds me a lot of my ‘holy grail’ the Estee Lauder Double wear foundation. The coverage is AMAZING one layer is good with spot checking but it can easily be built to more of a full coverage. It matched me so well too, which is something I struggle with in other foundations. It applied well with both a foundation brush and the beauty blender. On Saturday I wore it all night and it held up so well. As you can see even after some dancing and sweating there’s minimal oil, there was no patching, and hardly any creasing. Some of the other foundations I tried settled into my fine lines making me looked aged, I don’t know how else to describe it! (Now keep in mind I set all my foundations the same exact way.)IMG_2349

IMG_2385IMG_2380

Now I’m going to complain, hence my title. Today I wanted to try something I received in my April Ipsy Glam bag. I was so excited because the shade of the cream shadow by Starlooks is absolutely beautiful. But, ugh, I hate to do this but I hate the consistency. It was so hard to apply and it set so weird on the lid. I tried to redeem the look by going over it with an actual eyeshadow and it didn’t help. Which is such a bummer because the color is absolutely beautiful. IMG_2377

Here you can see how weird it looks. I primed my lids like usual so maybe that was the mistake? Anyone else having trouble with this product? Any suggestions? On the lips I am wearing two new products from this post.

Let me know if you try this foundation and your t

Random Buys

NYXRIMMELMILANI

I usually post on Wednesday but I really wanted to find this foundation before posting. We went to about 3 local stores with no luck. In the meanwhile I purchased some other little stuff while being out.

Like I always mention I set my eyebrows with e.l.f.’s clear eyebrow gel. The reason I love this product is because of how inexpensive it is. At only $2 for an eyebrow gel and mascara  I feel like you can’t go wrong. I can either fill in my eyebrows and set them with the gel or just use the gel alone. Once I’m out of the eyebrow side I actually use the mascara on the eyebrows as well. Perfect, good, and cheap!

This BB cream by Rimmel was such a disappointment and I wish I wouldn’t of been so impulsive with it. For a while I’ve wanted a product that is light weight but still provides enough coverage that it can be worn alone without concealer. What attracted me to this specific BB cream was the name, BB Cream Matte. As someone who tends to be very oily its only natural I seek products that will keep me matte the longest.

This specially formulated BB Cream is packed with matte perfecting benefits, resulting in gorgeous and shine free skin! Minimizing the appearance of pores and evening skin tone while controlling shine, the lightweight formula makes it perfect for combination to oily skin, with ideal benefits: soothes, conceals dark circles and even helps prevent blemishes. -From the Rimmel Website

It does provide good coverage. Initially I was very impressed. However, it only comes in TWO shades (Seriously?!?) so I set it with my Mac powder foundation for some color. I had an early doctors appointment so I didn’t want to pack on a full face which is why I didn’t bronze. BUT by like 10AM I was as oily as can be. Like bad pizza greasy . . . ugh!

NYXBUTTERGLOSS

Now this impulse buy I’m happy with. NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Chocolate Crepe is such a pretty shade. I am all about glosses for the warmer weather. My lips tend to be drier during summer (weird right?) so I always use glosses.

800897837020_intensebuttergloss_chocolatecrepe_alt1

This is a swatch from the NYX website. I feel like I need to mention these smell amazing like cake or a cupcake. . . or like frosting! The applicator is awesome, yay. I can’t handle how pretty of a color it is. BTW, as I’m on the NYX website I am SOO tempted to purchase more.WETnWILD

Another lip purchase I made was this Wet n Wild MegaLast lip color. This is in the shade Just Peachy. I’ve owned other shades in this formula when they first released and I wasn’t too impressed. Like I’ve mentioned matte lipsticks tend to dry my lips but I’m hoping it’ll be different this time. I did purchase an awesome lip balm to help with dry lips. Walgreen’s is having a bogo sale and my kiddo wanted a nail polish so momma got a lippie, #WINNING!

MILANI2in1FOUNDATION

Now this foundation is what I’ve been waiting for!! This is Milani’s Conceal+Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation+Concealer. The idea that it can provide that much coverage is mind blowing. It also comes with a pump, bonus! I hope this foundation lives up to the hype because besides my Estee Lauder Double wear I have not found a foundation I love that is drugstore.

Combat under eye circles, redness and other skin imperfections with this full coverage, water-resistant foundation plus concealer in one. A no mess, no drip pump dispenses just the right amount of fluid needed to achieve a flawless look and works around the clock to keep skin looking naturally perfect! -From the  Milani website

There is a variation of shades on the Milani website but in stores I saw way less. Maybe half of them. Also, it was sold out in most stores I looked for it. So I suggest looking which stores actually have it and maybe even calling to make sure. I wish I had. Could have saved us some trips.

Now I wouldn’t call this a haul because it’s such little items but besides the BB cream I am so excited for my purchase and I definitely recommend them to everyone! I’m all about inexpensive yet good makeup!

Any drugstore products you’ve been loving lately you recommend???

#MOTD 

  
I feel like lately my #motd’s have been sooo simple.  Some days I go so basic and others I go all out like this Pink look. But one thing that stays the same is not filling in my eyebrows. I haven’t found a product I can work with or like. I have thick eyebrows as it is even after I wax so a usual clear gel is enough. 

I however have not waxed so I do the whole ‘defining’ the eyebrows trick with concealer to hide those pesky hairs. I noticed that it left my eyebrows looking plain so I was on a hunt for an eyebrow pencil.   

 I can’t justify purchasing something super expensive since I hardly fill them in but let me RAVE bout this L’oreal Brow stylist definer. It has a super fine tip. I pull at my eyebrows when I’m anxious/nervous and have spots missing hair and the small tip makes it so easy to fill it in. 

 

Naturally when looking into a product I check up reviews and Heidicupcake  on YouTube said  the spoolie is similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow pencil. I’ve never owned that product so I have no clue if it’s true. Haha!! But for me personally this pencil and spoolie work amazing!
  
   
 I still need a lot of practice working on my eyebrows, I know, but this pencil combined with e.l.f’s clear eyebrow gel works wonders for me! I can’t wait to wax my eyebrows and have a thinner brow to play with the pencil a little more. Now, these are just my opinions on this product. . . So would I recommend it?! If like me you’re a make up lover on a budget, then yes. Yes I would!! I believe it was only $7 at Walmart. I did one day without the clear gel (first picture) and one with it and my faux eyebrows stayed in place all day.  

 
On the eyes I used the morphe 35N palette. If you own any Morphe palette then you know the shadows don’t have a name on it. But I went with a super soft brown shade in the crease and on the lid I used Too Faced Chocolate bar’s Marzipan. I was inspired by KathleenLights recent tutorial. Inner corner highlight and tip of the nose is Benefits Mary-Lou Manizer.  On the lips I did just a little of NYX’s Instabul.  (Oh, and please ignore the hormonal planet that made an appearance above my lip 😖😖.) Easy peasy! 

  What are some of your favorite eyebrow       methods/products you recommend?!

#MOTD


It’s been storming and gloomy in good ol’ Florida so I haven’t been in the mood for bright spring colors. Initially I was going for a “no makeup” makeup look but then.  . . Makeup happens!


I had done a dark berry lip Cherry bomb by Wet n Wild but decided it was too much just to lounge around the house. Even after I wiped off the lipstick (with a makeup wipe) it left a stain behind which I actually liked better. Haha!! Question, anyone else feels like no mascara on the lower lashes makes a look look softer? Or is it just me?


Here’s pretty much the same look just with a different lip. In this one I am wearing Stockholm by NYX. Excuse the hair like I mentioned it’s been raining a lot here.

I absolutely love using my bronzer as a crease shade on days I’m going simple. It just gives the lid some definition without it being too overwhelming.

You will also notice in the above photos I filled in my eyebrows which is something I don’t do often. I’ve always had very thick eyebrows so usually a clear gel has been enough but lately I’ve noticed some spots where I’m missing hair. I’m a nervous/anxious/stress picker so I’ll yank on them if I feel any of those. Im not proud of it but luckily makeup does help with that since I refuse to wax my eyebrows thinner! Anyone else do this?? Just another reason to love makeup! All I do is fill them in with a dark brown eyeshadow and a small angled brush (#215 by Luxie) and set it all with an e.l.f clear eyebrow gel. IMG_1806

Snapchat filters are everything. HAHA! Now, on that silly note I will part!

What are some of your favorite “no makeup” looks?!

NYX Liquid Lipsticks

If like me you jumped on the NYX band wagon then you’re no stranger to their Soft Matte Lip CreamIt was one of the first ‘liquid lipsticks’ that were soooo hyped up. So of course I had to try them out. I have a love/hate thing going on with these.

DSC_0275
This is San Paulo

Pro’s:

  • They smell amazing
  • Good color pay off (some colors)
  • They don’t transfer
  • Long lasting

Cons:

  • The applicator is crap! I usually have to use a small lip brush to even it out
  • They can be a bit drying
  • Some colors do need multiple applications (the darker colors)

When the Liquid Suede Cream released I was hesitant because of the issues with the matte lip creams. I didn’t even try to hype myself up for them although they have some gorgeous colors. BUT then Ipsy sent it out in their March Glam Bag and I was excited. I don’t mind FREE.99 because if I hate the product theres no loss.

DSC_0270
This is Kitten Heels

Pro’s:

  • The applicator is amazing
  • These aren’t so drying although they do dry to a matte finish
  • The formula is long lasting and even after I wiped it off for dinner there was a bit of a tint
  • I only have the shade Kitten Heels but one swipe of the wand and the color was vibrant and applied evenly

Con’s:

  • They transfer even after it dries
  • They smell horrible

NYX LIQUID LIPSTICKS

Here’s my mini NYX liquid lips collection. It’s not much but for myself I need to find formulas that aren’t very drying. I’ve always had sensitive lips. Mac’s matte lipsticks work well for me so do the Milani matte lipsticks. I won’t deny that there’s several liquid lipsticks in my wish list that I NEED to get! (LOL)

What are some of your faves?? Have you tried any of the new shades in the Soft Matte Lip Cream??
