November Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share with you my November favorites, and there is quite a few!

Makeup:

Physician’s Formula The Healthy Lip liquid lipstick in berry healthy – This is a beautiful berry/mauve shade! What I love to do with this is dot a little bit on the center of my lips and then smudge it out with my finger for a matte lip tint!

Physicians Formula butter highlighter in pearl – My skin always looks so dry and dull in the winter, and this has been my favorite highlighter to use, I use it every day. It has a beautiful formula and a lovely glow.

Urban Decay Comfort Matte Vice lipstick in Backtalk – I love this as a lipstick, but this past month I have been using it as a cream blush and I think it is gorgeous! Can someone tell me if Urban Decay makes this as a blush? Because I will buy it!

NYX Micro Brow pencil in Taupe – This has been my go to brow product. It is impossible to mess up with this pencil, my brows always look filled in and feathery, like real hair. I enjoy the definition it gives and it’s easy to use. Continue reading “November Beauty Favorites!”

Beauty Empties: September and October

Hello and welcome back to our blog! Today I want to share my beauty empties from the last couple months with you all:

Makeup:

Sadly we’ve only got one makeup empty for the last two months!

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC cream – This is almost finished, and it has gone bad! It is a lovely light foundation for everyday, and I love that it is spf 30. I’ve already repurchased.

Skincare:

Vapour Beauty clarity cleansing oil – I love this cleansing oil, it is so lightweight and it really works to get your makeup off. It is gentle and doesn’t sting my eyes. I have already repurchased!

Acure the Magical Wonderfluff moisturizer – This moisturizer was really light but hydrating. I did enjoy using it but I am not very loyal to a certain moisturizer and I’m ready to try something else.

Sonage Patagonia Berry Stem Cell Mask – I loved this face mask! It was incredibly nice, and it really made a difference in my skin. However, this is $48 dollars so I would not repurchase!

Acure Purifying Fruit Peel – I loved this fruit peel. It really gives you new skin after you use it. This makes my face so soft and it feels very balanced, not dry or irritated. It does seem pretty strong so I would be wary if you have sensitive skin, but it worked lovely on my skin! I will buy the full size.

No 7 Glow Activating Serum – This was a great light hydrating serum. Unfortunately, it is not the type of feel that I want, it feels gel-like and I prefer my serums to feel oily so I would not repurchase, but if you have an oilier skin type you might like this!

Bodycare:

Weleda Almond sensitive skin body wash – This was an average bodywash, but it is a little pricy though! I wouldn’t repurchase!

Aesop Rind Concentrate Body Butter – This was a good lotion but it is very heavily fragranced with orange. It was way too much for me, wouldn’t repurchase!

Haircare:

I never use up haircare so I’m happy to have moved out some of this!

Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive oil Ultra Moist Shampoo – I did like this shampoo, but it isn’t the most gentle one I could find. I am going to try something else instead!

Giovanni 2 chic Avocado and Olive Oil leave-in conditioning and styling elixir – This is a lovely leave in conditioner and styler, it really defines my curls and moisturizes them. I enjoy what it does for my hair and I repurchased!

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo – This shampoo was a little harsh on my curls, it did get all the buildup out of my hair but it also made my curls frizz so I would not buy the full size!

Aveda Rosemary Mint conditioner – This was a very watery conditioner and it did a lovely job, but it doesn’t work as well as my MOP conditioner so I will pass on it!

That is it for my empties! I’m sorry for being absent for a bit, Christine has been doing a great job holding down the fort for the last couple weeks. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I will see you soon!

Airspun loose face powder review

Hello my lovlies! Im back with another beauty blog…duh! It would be a little weird if i was doing a video game review or something…

Today i will be review Airspun loose face powder. I’ve heard so much about this face powder that i’ve wanted to try it out for so long. The only issue i had was no matter where i looked, i couldnt find this powder anywhere. I searched high and low in every drug store with no luck. Next i searched Target and found nothing there.

Then the day came, the faitful day where i would find the much awaited Airspun loose face powder. I had to get some shots for college at my local walgreens, now here is a little fact about me…your girl HATES shots. The mere thought of getting a shot, or being around a needle terrifies me so bad. Usually i have my mom come with me, and yes im a nineteen girl and i still need my mom to come with me when i get shots. BUT THIS TIME SHE SAID SHE WOULDNT COME WITH ME…brat…Just kidding i love my mom and i understood how i needed to grow up. ANYWAY, before getting the shots, to relieve some anxiety, i decided to walk around the store. And somehow i came upon the cosmetic section…its really funny how thats the first thing i came across. Being the beauty holic i am, i looked around the beauty section, and then i found it, the loose powder that i have been trying to find for years. It was $9 and SUCH A STEAL.

Airspun Loose Face Powder:

Details:

  • Round continer
  • Holes to help filter out powder
  • Orange lip with some time of flower (?) on it
  • Little puff applicator

Pros:

  • Smells AMAZING, very soft sent, like baby powder
  • Very easy application, if you apply with a beauty blender you wont make a big mess
  • Long lasting
  • gives finished look

Cons:

none

All in all i give this product a 10/10 because i really feel this product gives your concealor and under eye area a creasless look, which im totally for. I also am a huge fan of the smell. For some weird reason it reminds me of a new born baby, which i totally 100% love. Im a huge fan of vintage things, and i guess you could consider this product vintage because it was made in 1935. I know i know the product that im using wasnt made in 1935, but the company was, which i really find interesting, because with other vintage companies like Revlon, Maybelline, and L’Oreal they are well known. Most people have heard of these brands, and its because of how well known their brands are that their name has survived so long, but the fact that this brand isnt very well known, and it is still surviving is truly amazing to me.

Thats it for todays blog!

If you a havent, comment down below if you love that new born baby smell!

September Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I want to share with you my favorites from September! Lets get into it:

Makeup:

Babo Lip Tint SPF 15 Conditioner –

This lip balm has a little bit of pink tint and it has been perfect for everyday. I can quickly apply it before class and look put together, plus it is really moisturizing! It lasts a while on the lips and makes them look so healthy.

Morphe 12 NB palette – 

This has been my go to eyeshadow palette lately! The warm toned looks are beautiful for this end of summer-autumn phase. These shadows blend easily, and they don’t crease on me (even without a primer) for hours!

Tarte Gifted Mascara + NYX Worth The Hype Mascara –

I have really enjoyed layering these two mascaras! The combo gives me beautiful, long and volumized  lashes with definition. I love to put down the NYX one first as a lengthening base, and then go in with the Tarte for volume. I also love to put the Tarte mascara on my lower lashes, it makes them look lovely!

Skincare:

Derma-E Hydrating Night Cream – 

This has been a lifesaver for me the past couple of weeks. My skin had an absolute freak out because of my move to Cali for college. It went oily and then incredibly dry. This cream is super hydrating but it is fairly lightweight and has worked well through both skin types. Highly recommend this if you need a new night cream!

Acure Seriously Glowing Facial Serum –

This serum was much too heavy for my skin back home, but now it works amazingly for me. This is the only thing that has been able to help balance out my dry skin. It is amazingly hydrating, thick and heavy. I absolutely love it because it makes my skin glow by the morning.

Sonage Remedy Relief Balancing Mask – 

I love the way this makes my skin feel after, it really zaps clogged pores and it helped balance out my oily skin. Even now that my skin has turned dry it still makes my face feel nice. It is an incredibly rejuvenating mask!

That’s it for my September favorites! I hope you guys enjoyed, let me know what you’ve been loving down in the comments below, I would love to know!

NYX Matte Bronzer

Hello my lovlies! Im here with another beauty blog…Duh!

Today i will be reviewing NYX’s Matte Bronzer. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this bronzer, and having never used a bronzer before in my life i thought why not try this one!

This bronzer was around $9 ( 7p ), and i got this one at my local Target, but im sure you can find it at any store that has a beauty section. If youc cant find NYX in any of your stores, im sure you can find this bronzer on NYX’s website.

I will be completely honest, i have no idea how on earth to use bronzer, its definitley something i need way way more practice on.

I will start out by saying, i think i got too dark of a shade, because when i apply it to my face it looks like i’ve applied mud on. Im researching ways to lighten bronzer without buying a lighter shade. If you know any ways feel free to comment that down below.

Matte Bronzer:

Description:

  • Round black container
  • Mirror located on top lid
  • Compacted powder

Pros:

  • Mirror inside makes it easier to see what youre doing
  • you only need a little and it ges a long way
  • As described, it give a matte look when finished
  • long lasting

Cons:

  • Too dark for me, but that isnt a problem with the product, its my own error

All in all i feel like if i had a lighter shade, and knew how to use it better, i would enjoy this product even more. Right now its too dark for me to use a daily, or at all. If youre new to bronzer like i am, i suggest buying the shade you think you are, and then the shade lighter than that. Just it case you make the same mistake as i do! I dont think i can rate this product since my human error was so large, but i if it was more my shade i definitly would enjoy this bronzer a lot

Thats it for todays blog, hope you enjoyed!

3 Products I’ve Changed My Mind About

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog! Today I wanted to share with you some products that I’ve changed my mind about! Let’s get into it:

Vapour beauty illuminator in shade Halo

I didn’t enjoy this highlighter at all at first because the formula was kind of dry. I felt like it moved around my foundation and was too glittery. I have since figured out how to work with it and I enjoy it a lot more now if I just pat it very gently on with my fingertip and use a small amount. When you apply it right it can look very shiny and gorgeous!

Butter London Bloody Brilliant Lippy Crayons in shades Teddy Boy and Ruby Murray

These lip crayons were a couple that I absolutely use to love when I first got them, but now they don’t do much for me. The formula is super moisturizing and glossy and the nude shade I have really looks pretty on the lips. When I got the red shade, I realized I have issues with the formula. These lip crayons  get absolutely everywhere, they go outside the lip line, they settle into the cracks of your lips and I love the finish but they just don’t wear well at all.

Becca cream eyeliner in the shade Neo Classic

This cream eyeliner is one that I didn’t use to enjoy at all, but now I really love it. The formula is very lightweight and airy, it feels nice and goes onto the lid or your waterline smoothly. At first I didn’t like the color of this or the glitter, but now I’m really into it. It is super fun for a night out or a cool concert look or something like that. I really do want to get this liner in the black shade, but I am loving this shade much more than I used to!

That’s it for 3 products that I changed my mind about! Have any of you recently stopped enjoying using a product, or found out a way to make something work for you, let me know in the comments down below!
