5 Products I Will Always Repurchase

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! Today I want to share my five favorite makeup products that I cannot live without that I think are definitely worth the money and that I’ve repurchased myself multiple times:

1. Becca First Light priming filter

This is a pricy primer, but if you have dry to normal skin and you want an illuminating primer that is not sparkly or glittery this is a great one. It won’t make your skin look fake or that you’re wearing makeup, but it’ll make your skin dewy and a little more moisturized. I wear this every day before I put on foundation and it makes my skin look great!

2. NYX Microbrow pencil in taupe

This is my favorite brow pencil! It is very pigmented, the shade taupe is perfect for my hair and skin tone, the pencil itself is creamy. I also love that it is drugstore price, this is a staple for me and my routine since I cannot bring myself to pay $20 for the Anastasia or any other high end pencil.

3. ITcosmetics Hello Light Creme Highlighter in Radiance

This is my favorite cream highlighter, it is gorgeous, so creamy and blends out easily with your fingers. I always slap this on in the morning and the glow is very pretty and wet look. I have literally already went through one of these and repurchased

4. NYX Control Freak brow gel

This is a lovely brow gel! It definitely keeps my brows in place all day, it is drugstore price, it works well for me and I like that it doesn’t make my brows crunchy. I definitely recommend it and it’s a regular in my routine.

5. Urban Decay vice lipstick in Violate

My favorite lipstick of all time is this one, it is a beautiful mauve-purple-pink! I always pair this with cool toned eye looks and I just love it. It is the perfect nude pink for me and the formula is great and high quality.

That is it for this post guys! I hope you enjoyed it. Tell me in the comments something you have repurchased and can’t live without!


Urban decay naked Smokey pallet

Hello my lovlies! I want to apologize for my lack of blogging over the last few months. A life update is soon to come explaining more into why i haven’t been blogging much! I promise though you will see more of me now!

I have been wanting to type up a blog on this makeup pallet for awhile now. Recently i have been getting really into eyeshadows, i really love how you can express yourself through it. I got this Urban Decay Smokey Pallet for Christmas this year and i really loved it! Normally ( espesically during fall and winter) I wear more neutral colors like brown and nude. So this pallet was perfect for me!

The Shades:

As you can see in the picture above, a lot of these shades can be worn for both an everyday look and a night out. For example the browns, pinks, and golds can be used for an every day look, while the blacks, metalics and blues can be used for a night out!

The first three shades i absolutley love! Perfect for a subtle glowing look. I found the pigment pay off to be very good! this is only after one swipe of my finger. I know with more shimmery colors its sometimes a bit dodgey on if it will last or not, but i was pleasantly surprised on it lasting the whole day. As many of you know by now i dont really wear makeup for the whole day, at tops i will wear it for 6-9 hours, so when i say the makeup last the whole day thats what i mean! When it comes to which of these three shades are my favorite, i really cant decide. I have done many looks with these three shades together. First i will use the sweet shade first on my crease, then has a transition shade i use dirtysweet and then on the outer corner of my lids i use the radar shade.

These next shades i have to say i havent tested out very much. These dark metalic blues/grey/blacks never look flattering on me so i never wear them. Just as the shades previous to these ones though, the pigment pay off was wonderful on these ones. I totally loved how creamy all of these shades were, and how easily they applied onto the eyes!

As i stated above, the darker shades like black and greys dont look good on me, so unfortunatley i havent tested out blackmarket or smolder much other than for these swatches. Password though is a more of a brown shade which i really am a fan of. Although this one turned out to look a bit greyish on the swatch, it turned out really well if you put a little bit on the outer corners of your eyelids.

Aside from the first three swatches i showed you, this is definetly another favorite shades. Whiskey and combust are the two that i use the most and i use thirteen on the inner corners of my eyelids to brighten up my eyes. Once again i cannot express how much i love the creaminess of these shades enough. Its so easy to apply, and it last so long!

All in all i give this eyeshadow pallet a 5/5 stars. I didnt really have any issues with this pallet!



Beauty Empties: May and June

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I am going to share my empties from May and June, so let’s get into it:


I have no makeup empties this month which is a first!


Vapour Beauty Oil Cleanser – This is a lovely oil cleanser! It really does get my makeup off and I enjoy it a lot. Unfortunately, this is kind of expensive and I want to get a cheaper alternative, maybe from Burts Bees, so I wouldn’t repurchase.

Derma-e Hydrating Eye Cream – I really like this eye cream, I definitely enjoy it more than any other eye cream I’ve tried. I feel like it really helps de-puff the area and fill out the skin under my eyes, like plump it up and prevent wrinkles. Already repurchased!

Trillipiderm Rehydration Night Cream sample – I enjoyed this sample, but the full size of this night cream is $43.00! I think my Derma E hydrating night cream is just as hydrating and does even more for my skin, and it is half the price. Wouldn’t purchase this.


Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil Ultra Moist Shampoo sample  – I like this shampoo and I used it for a while, but it is a little too harsh for my hair and I prefer my Alba Botanica one! Wouldn’t purchase.

Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil Ultra Moist Conditioner sample – This is a lovely conditioner as well, and it is something I definitely would purchase after I go through back ups of my MOP one.

Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil Leave in Conditioner and Styling Elixir – This is a product that I love from Giovanni! I notice a big difference in my curls and how much less they curl up if I don’t use it. I’ve already repurchased!


Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Coconut Lime – This brand has the best body scrubs I have ever tried in my life and I absolutely loved this to the last bit. I have another scent right now in my shower (lychee and plum). Repurchased already!

FHF Organics Island Elixir Shea Butter Hand Cream – I enjoyed this hand cream, it was nice, the price isn’t bad, but I prefer other hand creams over this so I wouldn’t repurchase!

Alaffia Coconut Reishi Hand and Body cream in scent Coconut Chai – This is one of the hand creams I enjoy more! It has a lovely warm sweet scent (it is pretty heavily scented) and it is a great, moisturizing lotion. Definitely am repurchasing this!

That was it for my empties this month, I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know something that you used up in the comments down below!




My Current Makeup Wishlist

hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share with you guys my makeup wishlist, aka all the products I really want to buy and will purchase as soon as I can afford them, so let’s get into it:

Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Dollface 

This is such a gorgeous pink blush, and I really love the color as well as the packaging! These blushes are really highly recommended on youtube and I have always wanted a nice, single blush to use because I have so many in palettes, but it isn’t convenient to bring blush palettes for travel with me for the weekend so I just want one of these tarte blushes!

First Aid Beauty Hello FAB bendy avocado concealer 

I learned about this because Jessica Braun recommended it! I always have a hard time with concealer creasing on me, and this one sounds so promising. I definitely want to try this because I think it would really work for me.

Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation in LC1 

I’ve heard that this is a medium coverage foundation with a beautiful natural finish and I love how it looks when I see it on other people! I definitely want to try it out for myself since I have been looking for a nice medium coverage foundation for a long time.

Too faced Born This Way foundation in Swan 

This is another foundation that I have always wanted to try for the same reasons! This is a huge youtube favorite and it is really hyped up so I really want to try it out for myself.

Coloupop You Had Me At Hello Palette

This I want to try because I have seen so many people use it and the quality seems beautiful. The shades are beautiful and warm toned, purple themed which I have been so into lately and I think those shades work really well with my cool toned skin and brown eyes!

That is it for my beauty wishlist! Of course there are tons more products that I want but I definitely don’t need to add that many more to my collection so I will try to talk myself out of buying them! Let me know what you have on your wishlist in the comments below!



Milani Retouch and Erase Concealer Review

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share a review on a concealer that I really love from the drugstore that I haven’t heard anyone talk about in a while. For me this is a drugstore gem and I want to share it:


  • $8.99
  • comes in 3 shades
  • cruelty free

Promise: Milani’s Retouch + Erase Light-Lifting Concealer is designed to instantly hide dark circles, spots, blemishes and imperfections with a brightening effect. (From Ulta’s website)

So I really love this concealer because it blends out really easily with your fingers, or a sponge. It gives a nice sheer-medium coverage on me and the really yellow tone of the concealer makes it nice for covering my undereye circles. Continue reading “Milani Retouch and Erase Concealer Review”


May Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share my makeup favorites as well as some other beauty favorites so lets jump into it:


NYX Worth The Hype waterproof mascara

As you guys know I love  the regular version of this mascara, but I accidentally bought the waterproof version this time when I repurchased it, and I love it. It keeps my lashes curled all day, it is super black, it definitely is officially waterproof (It lasted through a good cry), and it never leaves smudge rings under my eyes!

Smashbox Hydrating Undereye Primer

This is a product that I just shopped my stash for this past month. It is really nice at hydrating my undereye area and my concealer goes on so much smoother when I use it! I also find that this makes a nice primer for my face underneath foundation as well, so I absolutely love it. Continue reading “May Beauty Favorites!”


Itcosmetics Hello Light Creme Illuminator Review

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to review a lovely product that I have been using for years and have not heard that many people talk about! For me this is one of my holy grails and I always repurchase it, so let’s get into the review:


  • Price: $24
  • Cream highlighter
  • One shade
  • Cruelty free!

Promise: An anti-aging powerhouse for naturally pretty, lit from within skin! The IT Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Illuminizer is all about the look of light, natural radiance and illumination. The formula is infused with skin-loving anti-aging and hydrating ingredients including peptides, hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, silk and vitamins A, C, & E (From the Ulta website)

So that is a lot of promises! But this product really lives up to its claims and I really enjoy it. It does make your skin look lit from within, it is a highlight that will give you a natural wet look rather than being super sparkly or glittery. For me this is the highlighter I wear every day, it looks gorgeous, natural and it is everything I need in a highlighter. It doesn’t emphasize texture on my skin as much as powder highlighters do.

I also love the texture of this product because it is very soft and creamy and it blends in well with just your fingers. It’s just a quick and easy to apply highlighter that looks great in any lighting. I think that this highlight wakes my skin up and makes me look much healthier and like my skin is really lit from within. I don’t think that this product lives up to its anti-aging claims because I would have no idea how to measure that, but it definitely does look great!



  • not glittery, very natural and pretty
  • cruelty free!
  • applies easily with fingers or a brush
  • gives you a wet look
  • decent price


  • only comes in one shade
  • some gimmicky claims

That is my review on this highlighter! I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know if you guys have ever tried this product in the comments, or let me know what your favorite highlighter is!

Hard Candy brand review

Hello my loves! Welcome back to our blog. For those of you who are new, thanks for checking us out! For those coming back for another round of Hailey and Christine, thank you so much for all that support! Hailey and i tell eachother all the time, we honestly are so thankful for all of you. We’ve had this blog for almost four years now, and never in our wildest dreams did we think we would come this far.

A few months ago i had gone to my local Walmart to get some groceries as well as other little things for Valentines day (which was that day). Naturally my little bum finds its way to the makeup section of the store. Now i had already gotten makeup for Valenties day, so there was literally no reason at all that i needed to be in that section, but somehow i always find my way there! As i was searching for old favorites i came across a primer from hard candy. It was very affordable, i think i only spent 8 USD. I also noticed how the whole brand had very affordable prices, to me it looked like a mix between L.A COLORS and E.L.F. This made me a little hesistant to buy any more of their products. I didnt want to buy a full face of their brand and go home to realize its cheap and doesnt work. So for that day i only went home with one of their primers.

After going home and trying out their blurrifying primer i was very impressed and immediately went on their website and orderd an almost full face of makeup. My totally only came out to about 50 USD which i was very impressed with, usually a full face of drug store brand makup may come out to like 60 USD or maybe even 70.


Since i’ve now tried out a fair amount of products from this brand, i thought i would do a blog post on it. I will give a little disclaimer though, i know that you can only purchase Hard Candy’s products from Walmart or their website

Lets get down to business. I’ll start with the primer first.

Blur Face Primer:

Sheer Envy Blur Face Primer blurs away imperfections to create a perfectly flawless skin finish. Worn alone or beneath makeup, this revolutionary liquid-to-powder formula glides on effortlessly, weightlessly; skin feels natural and silky smooth. Blurring effects work with the natural light to color-correct, fill and minimizes fine lines and reduces the appearance of pores

Lets take this step by step. Hard Candy starts with promising that their primer will blur away any imperfections. I will say i was a bit skeptical of this at first, when i hear of something blurring away any imperfections i think of there being some type of color in the primer to correct those imperfections. When i pumped the product into my hands i was surprised to see that it was a skin tone color. i didnt think that it would blur out any of my imperfections. Upon applying this to my face i was pleasantly surprised to see that it actually works both with and without makeup, which leads us to the next topic. Hard Candy assures consumers that this primer can be work with AND without makeup. I’ve never heard of wearing a primer without makeup, if im not in the mood to wear makeup, i will throw on a moisturizer and call it good, but even without putting on any other makeup, this primer gives my imperfections a airbrushed look. This i’ve noticed draws attention away from said imperfections. Now does this formula glide effortlessly, weightlessly and makes my skin feel silky smooth? Well yes and no. This is probably my only issue with this product is that when applied hands to face it feels a little dry going on, after while i feel like im tugging on my skin while massaging it into my skin. Althought i will say it does feel weightless on my skin which i really do like. No matter what look im going for on a day, i do not like the feeling of makeup weighing me down. The last thing that this product promises it does is color correct, minimize fine lines and reduces the appearance of pores. I was pleasantly surprised that it actually did all of this. My biggest issue is the pores on my nose are really big, but once i put this on it does make them look smaller, which gives my makeup look a perfect finish.

I would rate this product a out of 5 stars. My only real issue with this product was that it wasnt very liquidy, so it made it hard to massage into my skin.

Hydrating Coconut Water Infused Primer Mist:

The coconut water infused formula boosts skin hydration benefits for up to 12 hours. Use after face moisturizer to prime and prepare skin for makeup application.

This was one of the first things that i added to my cart. Those of you who have been following along with our blog for some time now know that im a huge sucker for anything that is lavender scented. What you guys may not know is that coconut scented things are also another weakness of mine. I’ve only been the the islands of H’awaii once, but for the like two weeks i spent there i was just covered in coconut scented things. So when i saw that Hard Candy had a Coconut scented mist primer you know i just had to get it. Their primer begins with promising to boost hydration in your skin. When i applied this mist, my skin did feel very hydrated. Like the primer i wrote about previously i also use this primer with out without makeup. If its a hot dry day in Texas sometimes i will throw it on in the morning just to give my face a little hydration boost to get through the day, and it does keep my face feeling hydrated both with and without makeup on. Thats all that was really written about this primer. Its oil free, so if you suffer from oily skin like i do somtimes, i feel like this primer is perfect. My biggest and only issue with this primer is that it didnt smell like coconuts at all, not even coconut water. That made me a little bummed because it smells just like cinnamon, not coconut. As for keeping makeup on for the 12 hours, i dont normally wear makeup for longer than maybe 8 hours, but i can say that it does keep my makeup on for the 8 or 9 hours that i do wear makeup.

I would have to also give this primer out of 5 simply because it doesnt smell like coconut at all and im really butt hurt about that.

Pore Primer Stick

This lightweight primer stick also helps reduce the appearance of pores and absorb excess oil to give you a mattified finish.

This was the second thing that i added to my cart. As i mentioned earlier, the pores on my nose are always so big, and i hate puting makeup on around my nose because it just makes it look so bad. Since this stick promised to reduce the appearance of pores i got this as quick as i could. I was really pleased with now much it minimized my pores, so much so that when wearing it you can hardly tell that i have pores on my nose. What i also like about this is that it really is lightweight. Once its on my skin i hardly notice its on at all. The fact that it absorbs any excess oils also makes me really happy. I dont suffer from super oily skin, but when im stressed out, or nearing my perioid my skin does tend to be a bit more oily than usual. So to have a priming stick that does that is really awesome! i use this on a daily basis, and i definitly will be re-purchasing it when it runs out.

I would rate this product a out of 5. I really love this product and how much it helps my daily look.

16 Hr Wear Full Coverage Foundation Glamoflauge Foundation:

Glamoflauge full coverage foundation is oil free, long wearing, super smooth liquid makeup that lasts for up to 16 hours.

Glides on effortlessly, leaving skin looking naturally flawless without caking, creasing or fading. The lightweight formula offers full coverage, yet feels weightless and comfortable with added Vitamin E.

This was the third thing i added to my cart. Other than lipsticks (wich im surprised that i didnt get from this brand) foundations are my other weakness. I have thousands of foundations, some of which i ever use because i have so many! Latley i’ve been having terrible luck finding true full coverage foundations, and full coverage is a MUST in my makeup bag! And when i read that this was a 16hr wear on top of that i just had to get it. This was 6 USD whihc is possibly the cheapest foundation i have ever bought. The price did sketch me at first, i had such high hopes for this i just didnt want anything bad to happen to it. I will start off by saying this foundation is truly ol free, in no way did my skin feel oily while applying and it throughout the day. As i keep saying in my reviews, i try not to wear makeup for too long. I usually wear makeup long enough to last me through work or a date and take it off right after. SO i only really wear makeup for 8 or 9 hours. Which i was plesantly surprised to find that it did last for the whole 8 or 9 hours that i wore this foundation. Hard Candy also states that this foundation effortlessly glides along your skin, giving it a naturally flawless look. The foundation as a little stick applicator, so it does glide on very easy, it does give a natrually full coverage look. When i think of full coverage foundation, i do think of cakeiness and creasing on the under eyes, so i was also very surprised to find out that it didnt cake or crease against my skin, which just made me fall in love with this foundation even more. Its full coverage without feeling heavy on my skin.

I would rate this foundation out of 5 stars. I had no issues with this foundation whatsoever. I have nothing but praise for it!

Instant Eye Fix Under eye treatment:

Awaken and illuminate dull, tired eyes. Instant Eye Fix eye treatment instantly brightens, de-puffs, and eases the appearance of fine lines. Metal tip applicator cools and immediately soothes delicate under eye area.

This product interested me greatly interested me. I’ve heard of eye serums,but never a i concealor type product. So i just had to try this out! As a young college student working 3 jobs, my under eyes are RUINED, i permenatley look like a 50 year old racoon. So i had high hopes on this working out. Anything to look more awake and more human im down to try. So lets start, does this awaken and illuminate my tired eyes? I would say it does make me feel more awake, but it doesnt illuminate my under eyes. Nor does it brighten my skin, but it does reduce morning puffiness. I would say other than dark under eyes, i suffer from really puffy eyes in the morning. It has a metal applicator which stays cool all the time, i dont need to throw it in the fridge or anything i just open the cap and its cool for me. The product itself comes out ina nude concealor type color, and it blends out very well. I will sy though, other than brining down the puffiness, this product doesnt really do much, i dont see it helping my under eyes in anyway.

I would have to rate this product a out of 5 stars.

Plumping Lip Primer:

Plumping lip primer for added pout & long lasting color.

I guess i did kind of order a lipstick from this brand. I got this plumping primer not because i want Kardashian big lips, but because on the days i dont wear makeup, i want a little colors to be brought to my lips. Hard Candy says that this primer will add a pout to my lips. Unfortunatly i didnt notice any plumping going on. I also realized that instead of a minty flavor that most lip plumpers give off, this one tasted more like vanilla which i didnt mind too much, it was an interesting surprise. AS for lasting color i noticed that if i didnt wear makeup it brought the blood flow up to my lips, giving them the natural tint that i was looking for. And when i did wear lipstick
it helped make the color last longer which is a huge pro for me.

I would rate this a out of 5 simply because it didnt do any plumping like it said it would.

Thats it for todays blog!



Maybelline master precise all day liquid liner

Hello my lovlies! Welcome back to our blog! I hope youre all enjoying your spring! I always say that fall is my favorite season, which it is, but im really starting to LOVE spring down here in Texas. Other than the allergies its the most beautiful thing i’ve seen. Back where i used to live, all spring meant was rain rain rain.

Which leads me into our topic of today…Kind of. As many of you know im always on the look out for a good reliable eyeliner. Before i bought this Maybelline i was using a Wet n Wild eyeliner that just wasnt working for me. It would last maybe an hour and was not water proof at all. Having waterproof makeup is a huge must for me. For some reason my eyes always leak when im laying down, and it has ruined many a eyeliner. I had done some research and this eyeliner popped up every time. So why not invest in this?

So lets start with what this product promises to do.

Maybelline promises that this eyeliner is an all day liquid liner thats long lasting , smudge proof, water proof that delivers precise definiion in just one stroke.

What are its benefits?

It features an ultra-fine tip that delivers defined lines. Also fragranc free and is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

Now the real question is, does it do all it promises? I will say when i wore this it was definitley water proof. Not once did it wash away from my leaky eyes. Nor did it wipe off when i constantly rubbed a it. I really liked that because not only do i have leaky eyes, but i constantly rub my eyes! So to have an eyeliner that is stronger than my leaky eyes and rubbing is AWESOME! It also did last my entire 10 hour shift, so basically all day.

one of my issues with this product was that it said it was suitable for sensitive eyes, but it really irritated my eyes. They itched a lot when i applied them as wings. So that was kind of a bummer.

Also i know it never said it was matte, but i wished it was because i love how bold and elegant matte looks on me. This kind of gave me water color vibe, which i wasnt a huge fan of.

I would give this product a 4.5 our of 5 stars. It was a good product other than the irritation it caused me. I didnt count the lack of matte to my scoring, just beccause they didnt say it was matte.

Thats it for todays blog. Let me know down in the comments what youre favorite eyeliner is!
