Pomegranate hair conditioner

Hello my loves! Welcome back to our blogs, and Happy New Year to all! I cant wait to see what 2019 has in store for all of us, and all of you! Comment down below what one of your New Years resolutions is.

Before i get too deep into this blog i really would like to thank all of you for follow our journey thus far. Hailey and i always say this, but its very true. When we started this blog we had no idea how big it was going to be, we had dreams of our blog becoming big, but we had no idea how quickly this would all gain, and many of you have been following our post since we were in our fetus stages of blogging. Thank you all! We love you all so much.

Now that you guys are all probably thinking “OMG Christine, get on with the blog”. I shall.

A few months ago i found this company in my local outlet mall. I had never heard of Crabtree and Evelyn so i wanted to test their products out. When i walked into the store i could definitley tell that their products were from all natural ingredients. It didnt smell like Bath and Body works or any of those stores. Crabtree i noticed mostly had hand lotions, but they also sold body washes and hair conditoners. Since i was running low on conditoner i decided why not give it a try.

Beauty Empties: November – December

Hey guys, welcome back to our blog! Today I want to share with you my beauty empties for the month of November and December.

Makeup:

Butter London Plush Rush lip gloss in Free-fall – This was a gorgeous gloss! For me these seem quite similar to Buxom’s formula, and I enjoy those glosses just a little more, so I wouldn’t rebuy this.

LA colors lip gloss in clear – This is the best thick and hydrating clear gloss. I always put it over liquid lipsticks and I miss it a ton! Definitely going to repurchase.

It cosmetics Hello Light Cream Highlighter – I used this up this year. I repurchased it already, I love it. It is the perfect cream highlight for everyday!

Dr.Hauschka stick corrector in shade 01 – I did like this concealer but the shade was way too pink for me. I like the formula but I think I can find something better. Wouldn’t repurchase!

EOS lip balm – EOS is not cruelty free so I would not repurchase! But I also don’t feel like this hydrates my lips much at all, so I wouldn’t recommend these balms.

NYX Worth the Hype Mascara – I love this mascara! I cannot wait to go repurchase it, I like the consistency and the effect it gives to my lashes.

NYX Microbrow pencil in taupe- This eyebrow pencil was lovely. I just ran out of it this morning and I am going to repurchase it today because (not to be dramatic here) I can’t live without it.

Skincare:

Burts Bees Facial Cleansing towelettes – These were really good makeup wipes! I mostly used them for swatches and I would definitely repurchase.

SheaMoisture Youth Infusing Mud Mask – This mud mask kind of dried out my skin, I’m not sure how I felt about it and I wouldn’t repurchase. Continue reading “Beauty Empties: November – December”

Massive Makeup Haul!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Happy New Year, and happy holidays! Today I wanted to share a haul of makeup I’ve bought myself and some that I’ve gotten for Christmas. Let’s jump into it:

Makeup:

Becca First Light priming filter –

I have been using the deluxe sample of this for so long and I love it. I’m so happy to now have the full size to go through because this is my hydrating primer holy grail.

It cosmetics Hello Light Creme Luminizer – 

I finished my old one and this is a repurchase! I love this cream highlight and it is so pretty on my skin. It is easy to work with and I am excited to go through this new one.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop –

I’ve never tried any of Becca’s skin perfectors, so I’m so excited to try this. This is too deep on me as a highlighter but I think it would look gorgeous as an eyeshadow!

Bobbi Brown Deluxe eye and cheek palette –

This was an incredibly generous gift from a family friend. I love bobbi brown products (I wish they were cruelty free). But I am excited to use this because I’m sure it is good quality and I like that it is an all-in-one. Continue reading “Massive Makeup Haul!”

Nails

Essie nail polish

Hello my lovlies! I do enjoy making my horizons wider with this beauty blog. If it isnt obvious by the picture in today’s blog, i will be reviewing the nail side of the beauty world.

Now i always loved painting my nails, as a child i loved how i could express my colorful self through nail polish. It also meant bonding time with my mother which i always loved .

As i began my musical carrier i sort of shifted away from nail polish, it seemed every time i painted my nails, the second i brought out my violin they would chip. And then as i got into middle school and high school i realized i have zero patinces to sit and wait for nail polish to dry!

On the special moments that i do paint my nails Essie is always my favorite brand of nail polish. I love the wide variety of colors that they have. Not to mention the layer dry relatively fast.

And as many of you have probably realized over the years, i really really love the color pink. Out of all the pink Essie shades this one is my favorite. I love how it isnt like a hot hot pink, its a pink that can go with a lot of my outfits, its very natural looking, not a bold color that draws attention to me. Also blush pink is one of my favorite shades of pink in the world. At first i didnt like how the consistancy was so thin, one of the things that makes painting my nails such a bother is when i have to sit and do layers. I dont know if its just me, but when i paint my nails i want to be done as soon as humanly possible. In my opinion thicker consistancies of nail polish tend to take less time. Sure it takes a bit longer to dry, but at least i dont have to sit for hours on end waiting for each layer to dry. After using Essie for a few years now i’ve grown to actually liking the thinner nail polishes. My impatient self has learned that good things come those who wait.

Overall, i really do like this nail polish, and the Essie brand in general!

Comment down below if you like the Essie brand, and what do you think about it!

5 Minute Makeup Routine for Everyday

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog. Today I wanted to share the quick 5 minute makeup routine that I’ve been doing before I leave for classes or if I get ready in a hurry.

Step 1:

I use a hydrating primer to give my skin a little bit of a boost. My favorite is the Becca first light primer, it gives you bright and pretty skin!

Step 2:

Concealer! I always have dark circles and getting rid of them makes me look much more put together. I use the Dr. Hauschka cover stick concealer and just blend it in with my finger quickly. I always use the ELF tone correcting powder to set my concealer just so it doesn’t crease. Continue reading “5 Minute Makeup Routine for Everyday”

Charlotte Russe Perfume

Hello my lovlies! Who is loving the Christmas season right now? Also what does the Christmas/Holiday season look like for you? Right now for me it’s actually rather warm. Im so used to a cold holiday season since i used to live in Washington. We usually got a white Holiday, but here in Texas its actually kind of bi-polar. One moment its cold and the next its in the in the high 80’s or 90’s which i dont mind at all. I have Latin blood in me, so living in a cold state was always very hard for me.

Speaking of the holiday season, if you’ve followed along with our blogs, you know that a few months ago i went to Charlotte Russe and basically bought the whole entire store.

Basically.

Anyway, when i did go it was August, and i decided to get to perfumes. Now i dont normally use perfumes like this. Im more of an essential oils type of girl, but during the move to Texas i had lost my essential oil rollers so, sad life please pity me (JUST KIDDING). Since i had lost my dear rollers, i decided to get two perfumes, one was a more summery fragrance (coconunt) and the other was more of a fall fragrance, which is the one that i will be reviewing today.

I have been using this perfume every day since i got it. I love how its not an over powering scent, its very natral low scent that is perfect for fall! You can definitley smell the vanilla and sugar, and its all really subtile which i love.

I really dont like over powering or very obvious fragranes, and thats why i mostly use essential oils, and this warm vanilla scent is truly amazing. I highly recommend going out and getting yourselves a little bottle of your own!

Well thats it for todays blog!

Comment down below what your favorite fragrance is!
