High-end Products That Aren’t Working For Me

Standard

Hi guys! Welcome back to our blog, I have 3 high end products to share with you that just really are not working out. I dislike them but I spent so much money on them I can’t bring myself to give them away.

First up we have the Tarte Tarteist Contour palette



I tried a lot to make this work for me, but the two contour shades are too warm for my very cool toned complexion and the blush is too dark for me. The lighter contour shade which i could make work has no pigment in it. The white shade in the middle has glitter in it all over and has no pigmentation which I dislike. The shades don’t feel buttery in my opinion and seem harder pressed which I don’t personally like, but maybe someone else would. Overall I don’t think this is worth the youtube hype. I have a $3 contour kit that beats this and this costs $45.

July Favorites!

Standard

Boy! I cant believe that July is already coming to a close. Although I love July, all good things must come to an end.

 

But why be all gloomy about it ending when I can share with you my July Favorite products!

 

The first product I will share with you is this super cute lavender lotion.IMG_20170626_134434

To start off  La Chatelane has such an adorable design for this lotion, I almost feel as if I’m walking around Paris when I am carrying this with me in my purse. I love how just a little bit of this goes such a long way, and smells AMAZING

 

Second I with you the two lip tints  I have used during this summer so far.

Now I have done a review on this already, but I just love how summery these look!

The Packaging Awards – Makeup I Bought for the Packaging!

Standard

Hi guys and welcome back to our blog!

I know I am not the only one who is guilty of buying makeup for the packaging, and I have a ton of products I bought because they looked pretty. This was inspired by one of my favorite youtubers, livloveshermakeup who did this a long while ago but I had a good laugh about it so I wanted to do it as well! Today I am going to share my top five prettiest makeup items with you!

  1. Hourglass Vanish Stick Foundation


This is so freaking gorgeous, the triangular tube is in this maroony brown shade which is so luxe, and its super simple too. It’s such elegant packaging that I love it!

2. Tarte Tartelette Matte Palette


This palette is stunning, the warm periwinkle fading to purple is so pretty and I love the gold font. The cursive is really girly as well and I honestly have kept holding on to it for the packaging. I just can’t bring myself to declutter it even though I don’t love it.

Tarteist Lip Paint Review and Swatches! 

Standard

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I have so many things I want to review and share my thoughts on so here is yet another review. Today we will be focusing on the Tartiest lip paints which are hyped up like crazy, and whether their actually worth the money:


Promise: Quick dry, full coverage, transfer-proof liquid lipstick

Overview:

  • cruelty free!
  • 28 shades available
  • liquid lipstick matte formula and finish
  • Price: $20 which is reasonable


The texture of this whipped and super light and airy. I forgot I was wearing this multiple times. It is full coverage and super pigmented with one swipe. It comes out of the tube matte so you don’t have to wait for it to dry down to get a matte look which I really like. This was transfer proof for me, it didn’t come off on my water bottle until late in the day and lasted through super greasy pizza. It also lasted through most of the day, but it was not crazy long wear. It doesn’t fade too evenly in my opinion, the middle comes off first but that is pretty typical. If you don’t like more whipped liquid lipsticks you will not like this! Continue reading

Massive Beauty Declutter!

Standard

Hi guys! Lately I have bought some new products and its time for me to get rid of the old stuff that I no longer am using.  I’ve cleaned out my makeup and also my skincare and samples for this declutter so I’m going to show you what I’m getting rid of.

I also know that Christine has been beauty purging as well so maybe you’ll see a post like this from her soon!

Makeup:


I never color correct except for canceling redness so I’m getting rid of the bulky palette and I’ll purchase green concealer separately. That becca quad is not good quality in my opinion but christine wanted to try it so I’ll give it to her. The mascara is expired so it is going away! I never reach for coral so the milani gloss got no use from me. I also never reach for single shadows so I duped all of those seven shades in palettes. they are so amazing though, if you like single shadows I highly recommend these!

Nails:


I didn’t use the nude polishes from Deborah Lippman or the barielle. The butter london one was so cool toned it looked awful on me, and the pink zoya polish is just not me anymore. I also never do nail art so I don’t need the stickers, and I hate nail files I am keeping only one. Continue reading
