June Ipsy bag!

Standard

Hello lovlies! Summer is finally upon us, thank goodness! Here in Washington it’s always so cold and rainy, so we take up all the sun we can get!

I just want to say I LOVE this months ipsy bag!!!

Hey Honey come clean facial scrub:

This is such an amazing exfoliating scrub! I love it and it really gets all the yucky dead skin off, I used it before getting a tan and it was amazing!

Feel pure anywhere rose balm

This balm smells so gooooddddd!! I’m a sucker for anything Rose and Lavender (if you couldn’t tell from some of my more recent post) so I was so excited to get this, it moisturizes really well and it last all day!

MAC prep+prime primer

This primer is so smooth and silky, it has a hint of glitter in it, which for some people could be a issue with, but it’s ever so slight and gives you this glow. I don’t mind the glitter much, helps my makeup stay on all day!

Pacifica eyeshadow

I love love love love love this eyeshadow. My two favorite shades are the orange ones because I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE for a good pigmented orange and I finally found it! I use this every day!

Firma 102 brush

I love this brush, it’s very soft and applies very naturally. Not to mention it looks really good with the marble!

That’s it for this post!

Let me know down in the comments what you got in your ipsy! Or if you have any of these items!

Top 5 Drugstore Makeup Products

Standard

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I’m sharing my favorite affordable makeup products with you!

1. NYX butter lip glosses in Tiramisu and Angel Food Cake

These are so good! They are lovely and moisturizing. They aren’t super lightweight, but they aren’t really thick or heavy either. The color payoff is nice, and to top it off they are super affordable and have an amazing color selection.

2. Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter in Pearl

The formula on these is technically a powder, but if you touch these they are almost like a cream. They apply best with just your fingers or a dense brush, a fan brush or loosely packed one won’t pick up much product. The sheen is super shimmery and a bit glittery!

3. ELF tone correcting powder in cool

Becca First Light Priming Filter Primer Review

Standard

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I want to review this primer that I bought a while ago but I’ve recently started using it!

Overview:

  • Price: $38 for the full size, $18 for the deluxe size (what I have)
  • Cruelty free!

Promise: Your new-pick-me up, a lavender hued priming filter powered by luminescence that preps, perks & perfects the complexion. (From the back of the tube)


I really think that this primer is nice! I have normal skin and this just gives very lightweight hydration, just enough to make my skin hydrated and dewy. I also love that this doesn’t have a lot of shimmer or glitter in it because a lot of dewy primers are full of that shimmer and it makes your skin look artificial.

This primer has a light nice texture just like a moisturizer and gives your skin enough of a perfecting Continue reading

Favorite Drugstore Lipsticks!

Standard

Hello love bugs!

Now you know how your girl love her some drug store makeup! Here is a little mini review on some new lipsticks I got!

Nyx liquid suede

Now I lost this one just recently and I’m so upset! I really love this lipstick. It gives the perfect matte finish and it’s so long lasting!

Nyx lingerie

 

This one I love love love! I tend to lean more toward the red shades when it comes to lipsticks, but this is my favorite non red shade of lipstick I have! I love the thick matte finish, but it doesn’t feel thick against your lips! My only advice it to put on lip balm before application, once it dries it tends to flake off, lip balm keeps it smooth all day.

Liquid catsuit

Like I said before. I love red shades. I’ve never had a super bright red lipstick so I was super excited to get this. Unfortunately after I put it on it began to crust and flake, so I didn’t like it as much. I do now put on lip balm before hand, it does help, just not as much as I would like.

That’s it for today! What’s your favorite brand of lipstick?

Haul: New Purchases from Marshalls/Ulta

Standard

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! A week ago Christine and I went to Marshalls, and I went to Ulta with my mom, so of course I picked up plenty of makeup, skincare, haircare and nail polish (so did Christine)! This is kind of a massive haul, let’s just get into it –

Makeup:


Tarte Gifted Mascara in black – I’ve always wanted to try this so I just decided to get it!

Itcosmetics no tug waterproof gel liner pencil in black – This is my favorite black pencil liner, and I repurchased it!

Ellentracy ultimate lengthening mascara – I may have also bought this for the packaging, but I am looking for a really good lengthening mascara and I hope this is the one.

Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Catnip – This was such a bargain! I love the deep pink shade!

Skincare:


Valjean Labs Glow Vitamin C and Magnesium Facial Serum – This packaging was so cute, which I honestly the reason that I bought this, but the ingredients sound great!

Acure Radically Rejuvenating Facial Scrub – I’m always looking for a new exfoliator, so I am super excited to try this one.

Bodycare:


Ultabeauty gradual tan lotion in bronze glow – This is a self tanner I decided to try, it is a gradual tan and develops slowly.

Schmidts natural deodorant  in the scent rose and vanilla РI found this while I was there and decided to try it out, the scent is really nice!

Haircare:


Renpure coconut cream curl defining cream – This looks so good, I can’t wait to use it in my hair!

Nail Polish:


Zoya Naked Manicure Perfector – This is a pretty nude-white polish that I picked up for prom! (Get ready with us is coming on monday!)

Zoya nail polish in Ryan – The dark blue shade of this was really calling my name for fall or for winter so I picked it up!

Chinaglaze nail polish in White on White – I’ve been loving white nails, the white nail polish I owned before this was so goopy and not good quality so I have replaced it with this!

That is it for my haul of new products. Let me know in the comments what you want to see reviews on, or tell me something you’ve just purchased!

Life Update – High School Graduation, College, Our Pets etc.

Standard

Hello our loves! This is a super chatty post, so grab your popcorn ‘cuz this will be a dense one!

Okay, lets start off with our high school graduation!

We will be graduating high school in two weeks. For the both of us, it hasn’t really set in that our high school career will be at an end. We met our freshman year, so this will be bitter sweet. The two of us have already gotten our caps and gowns, as well as our graduation dresses. When we got our caps and gowns, we thought finally it would sink in that we’re graduating, but it hasn’t. We both feel so ready to be out, yet at the same time we aren’t ready to leave.

Both of us are going to college next fall, but it was tough to make the decision of which schools we wanted to attend out of all that we had applied to!

Hailey: I was stuck between a school in Boston and one in California for the longest time. The college in Boston was the best in the world for what I was studying, but I didn’t like the people or campus as much as the California, and it was hard to let that opportunity of such a good program go even if I knew it wasn’t a good fit for me. It made me so stressed, but I didn’t realize until I had picked the California how much it had been affecting me. That was one of the reasons why Christine took over so much in April, I just was not able to blog from the nerves of picking a school.

Christine: Choosing the college that i am attending to caused me a lot of stress too. In one hand I had my family, who were very set upon me going to the school of their choice, and in the other I had Continue reading

Tarte Amazonian Clay Park Avenue Princess Bronzer Review

Standard

Hello guys! Welcome back to another review! I’ve been trying this bronzer out lately and I wanted to review it to let you guys know if it is worth the hype or not!

Lets get into it:


Overview:

  • Price: $30.00
  • Cruelty free and 100% vegan
  • 9g of product
  • is free of parabens and phthalates

Promise: This all-matte waterproof version adds instant warmth and dimension across a variety of skin tones. The Amazonian clay-infused formula helps to improve skin clarity, texture, and tone for an overall lit-from-within complexion.


This bronzer is very matte, no shimmer, which I love personally. This works really well on my fair skin, it is easy to work with, it blends out easily and the color isn’t too dark. This also won’t make you look like you have a stripe of dirt on your face or make you look orange even if it is pretty warm toned, so I really love that about it! It looks very natural and I Continue reading
