Current Winter Skincare Routine!

Standard

Hello you guys! Welcome back to our blog! Today I wanted to share with you my skincare routine, I haven’t done one of these in ages, so it is definitely time for an update, and all of this is cruelty free this time!

This is the skincare routine that has prevented me from getting flaky dry patches this year. It is only five steps, so much simpler than my old routine.

  1. vapour cleansing oil


This is what I use to take off my makeup at night, it works so well. It leaves an oily but hydrating film on your skin, that film will come off if you double cleanse, or if you towel your face dry so you can use it on its own as well.

2. terremere Tea and Aloe Hydrating Cleanser


This is my second cleanse! It does a good job of taking off any leftover makeup, and leaves my skin very soft and hydrated. I love that this is not stripping, it is a lovely cream cleanser. Continue reading

Favorite Red Lipsticks for the Holidays

Standard

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I’m just starting to get in the mood for the holidays and I wanted to share my favorite red lipsticks with you guys! I hope you aren’t too bored of lipstick posts, I just realized the last five posts have been about lipsticks, let me know if you guys get bored!

Physicans Formula Velvet Lipstick in the shade Fight Free Redicals –

This is a gorgeous super bright red! I absolutely love this shade, it is so bright and fun and perfect for holiday parties. This is not drying on your lips at all but still will be matte. If that is what you like, then I definitely recommend this lipstick! Review: here if you want lip swatches or more information on the formula.

Too Faced Melted Matte liquified longwear lipstick in the shade Lady Balls

This is my favorite universal red. In fact, I’m pretty sure I mentioned this in my last post like this during the holiday season for 2016. It would look gorgeous on more medium deeper skin tones. This formula is a lot more longwearing and very very matte. It is not transferproof but it will last you through a party! Continue reading

Physician’s Formula Velvet Lipsticks Review

Standard

Hello guys! The past couple weeks I have been using these physicians formula velvet lipsticks, if you want to see my final thoughts then keep on reading!

Overview:

  • cruelty free!
  • price: $7.00
  • Will go on glossy and dry matte, it is a liquid lipstick

*I couldn’t find the products claims because apparently these liquid lipsticks aren’t released everywhere yet!*

These are so pigmented! One swipe is all you’ll need, you will have no patchiness and the wand made it really easy to apply evenly.

The formula is also ridiculously lightweight and doesn’t dry your lips out at all. I found an ingredients list and these are infused with avocado oil and vitamin E. They definitely are nourishing and are very comfy to wear all day. You might even forget you are wearing this lipstick!

This also seems to blur out my lip lines. Most liquid lipsticks I’ve tried will emphasize lip lines to some degree, but these seemed to blur my lip lines away and my lips looked so smooth! These also didn’t crack even after a few hours of wear.

In terms of wear time, this is my only issue. Continue reading

Mini Ulta Makeup Haul!

Standard

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! A few days ago I went to Ulta with Christine and bought a few things! Mostly practical things. I think I am putting myself on a no-buy after this because I need to save up for christmas gifts for everyone in my family!

Anyways let’s get into it!

Face Products:


Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – I’d never tried this sponge and I had heard so many good things about it! So far my first impression is good as well, I actually love it! I’ve never tried an original beauty blender so I won’t know how it compares, but I like this so far.

Becca First Light Priming Filter – I heard that this was hydrating and lovely from one of my favorite beauty gurus on youtube so I decided to pick up a mini size. I have a couple of primers to work through first before I commit to a big size of this one.

November ipsy bag!

Standard

Hello my lovelies! I can’t believe November has come to an end, though Thanksgiving may have passed, might I say how incredibly thankful I am for all you guys! You have no idea how much you have helped Hailey and I, and how much you mean to us!

This months bag has to be my favorite so far!

Lately I have been very obsessed with the natural look, the subtitle makeup that isn’t too over the top. For me personally that has been my 2017 fall look! So when I opened this months bag I was thrilled!

First up in my bag was….

Benefits they’re real sample mascara:

I adore this mascara so so much and will definitely buy the actual mascara. This mascara gives me so much volume, I already have camel lashes, but this mascara brings them out even more (I keep trying to flutter those chemistry test grades away but it doesn’t seem to be working!) the only thing that o don’t like about it is it takes awhile to get off at the end of the day, which his both good and bad, I mean I’m glad that it stays on 24 hours, but at the end of the day when I just want to go to bed and I’m spending an extra 2 minuets rubbing it off, it can get a little tiresome.

3 Favorite Dark Lipsticks for Winter!

Standard

Hello guys! It is almost officially winter and I have been loving dark berry lip colors and just darker shades in general! Today I’m going to share with you my favorite dark lipsticks for winter. These happen to all be from the drugstore and are ridiculously affordable.

I did do a post like this last year, if you would like to see how much my blogging skills have improved, click here 

Anyways! Here are my recommendations!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the shade Chocolate Berries –


This is a beautiful, more wearable, brown toned purple! I love the formula and the color on this and it is such a lovely lipstick. This one is not a matte finish, instead its more of a satin. I like that because I think a little luminosity makes your lips look bigger which is important when you are wearing dark colors!

Elf Moisturizing Lipstick in the shade Razzle Dazzle Red –


This is my favorite dark red of all time. Against fair skin this looks beautiful and on medium and deep I think you would still really love this. It’s a very universal deep red! It is beautiful and lasts a long time even though it isn’t a matte formula. This won’t bleed outside your lip lines but it will transfer so you do have to be a little careful with it!

NYX Simply Vamp lipstick in the shade Bewitching –
