May’s Beauty Bargain of The Month

Standard

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! Today I want to talk about getting products for super cheap (still broke!) and what I have been loving at the drugstore. I have been obsessed with these LA colors Matte Lipsticks in the shades Tender and In Love (picked up another shade because I loved the formula!) I haven’t done one of these in a while and I apologize since I know some of you are always on the lookout for a bargain and love these kinds of posts!

Promise: Intense color, nourishing formula, and a soft matte finish (their website)


Overview:

  • price $2 (!!)
  • cruelty free!
  • satin/matte finish


I absolutely love these for everyday. Their pigmented and really pretty. They also don’t dry out your lips and are super long lasting! The two shades that I have are so gorgeous. The matte finish makes me love these because I hate drying liquid lipsticks but I like a matte finish and this fits my criteria perfectly for an everyday lip. I have been wearing one of these almost everyday for the whole month of May. For two dollars I think these are performing as well as my higher end matte lipsticks and they remind me so much of the Stila Convertible Colors. Continue reading

Do’s and Don’ts of Blogging

Standard

Hello guys! So many of you find my little blogging tips mini series helpful that I decided to make another one. I always get such sweet comments on post like this so thank you all for that! Todays post will be do’s and dont’s of blogging (what not to do!)

Do edit your posts and don’t make typos 

First and foremost editing! Editing will prevent the unprofessional typos that inevitably will occur. I sometimes have typos actually, trying to work on this!

Do Promote your post but don’t be annoying about it!


Promoting your new post on social media can be really valuable but don’t spam your followers feeds with it and go overly crazy to get views. Also in the comments of someone else’s post don’t shove your new post down their throat in efforts to get them to check it out, it is unprofessional.

Do take your own pictures (even if they aren’t amazing!) but Don’t use stock photos! Continue reading

Super Exciting High End Haul from Ulta/Sephora!

Standard

Hello guys! I have a post that I’m super excited to share with you all! This weekend I got some fabulous cult classic products that I’ve been dying to try out. This is kind of a more mini haul since there is only six products, and all are cruelty free! These products are all so exciting I am in love with what I bought!

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize shadow in the shade Veruschka – 


This is a stunning cream to powder eyeshadow that turns into a gorgeous muted silver on the lid. It is so beautiful and I think it would be lovely for smokey eyes.

Charlotte Tilbury Color Chameleon eyeshadow stick in the shade Black Diamonds –


This is something I heard Zoe Sugg raving about! It looks perfect for creating simple eye looks. This shade is super glittery but not overdone and it also doesn’t seem black to me at all. More like a dark green toned silver which will look gorgeous on my brown eyes.  

Urban decay naked skin concealer – Continue reading

Yet Another Huge Beauty Product Declutter

Standard

Hello everyone! I’ve been going crazy with spring cleaning and I have been decluttering out the things I don’t use. I realized I have so many samples that I don’t use and a lot of products I hold on to for no reason! I recently did one of these so I will link it here for you guys to check out!

So let’s get into the decluttering:

Eyeshadow:


 

After getting myself some really nice eyeshadow I realized that these baked Laura Geller eyeshadows (left) aren’t that pigmented, so I’m letting them go. The color sites mineral shadow on the bottom is really great formula wise but I don’t use those bright green and blue shades. The neutral dr haushka shadows are not something I reach for since I have so many neutral mattes. I also realized that I have all the shades from this lancome palette in my collection so I’m going to get rid of it. Continue reading
