Favorite Drugstore Lipsticks!

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?

My night time routine

Hello love bugs!

I remembered way back when our blog was little itty bitty fetus, I did a morning routine, so today I shall share my night time routine.

  1. Remove all makeup.

I remove my makeup using coconut oil, I find it really helps to remove my mascara. For a deeper cleanse I use rose water to remove all the excess dirt and makeup. I use a cotton ball until there’s no more makeup/dirt. After that I spray the Mario Badescu facial spray on and massage it into my skin. Once a week I will use a charcoal face mask before bed

2. Brush and braid hair

My hair has grown a lot longer since cutting it, and I find that if I have it down or up in a pony tail I wake up with the most horrific knots. So I brush through my hair about 100 times (50 each side) to make it soft, silky and knot free. Next I put a very little amount of rose oil onto my fingers and run it through my hair. This helps with shine, after this I braid my hair and call it good! I also find the rose oil helps my hair smell amazing the next morning when I take the braids out.

3. Brush teeth

Naturally I brush my teeth. I use baking soda and lemon juice first. I find it helps whiten my teeth as well as break down plaque and other gross stuff resting on your teeth! Next I use Tom’s mint toothpaste to brush my teeth. I really like how Tom’s has no fluoride in their products, it’s all natural!

4. Switch on my essential oil diffuser

I have a really hard time sleeping at night. With a little lavender oil in the air I find my sleeping has greatly improved! This especially helps after a long day of school and retail!

5. Put my mouth guard on and call it a night!

As a high stress person, I grind my teeth at night. This causes a lot of pain in my jaw the next morning, so I use my night guard to stop myself from grinding, after that I go to sleep.

That’s it for my nighttime routine! What do you do?

Pan That Palette 2018 Update #1

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I’m going to share my first update for pan that palette 2018. I am panning (well, attempting to pan) the Bobbi Brown Beauty Book palette which was limited edition from her 2016 holiday collection.

How my palette looked on January 1st 2018


How my palette looks on March 24th (the day I’m writing this post!)

I’ve made small progress on the white shade, I need to get in the habit of actually using eye primer and setting down a base shade. I’ve loved the silver shimmer shade in my inner corner and also foiled onto the lid, so I’ve made quite a big dip in it. I love the soft matte brown for filling in my brows and my transition so it has the beginnings of a dip! The champagne pink shimmer shade was my go to lid shade for a bit so I will bring that look back in the spring and summer. I’ve also made a dip in the dark plum by using it to set the eyeliner in my waterline! Currently the look I’ve been doing is that matte brown as a transition, the silver foiled onto the lid and then smoking out my eyeliner a bit!

The next update will be at the end of June, halfway into the year, hopefully I’ll have some pan by then to show you!

Is there a product you have been panning this year? If so, let me know what it is!

Pan That Palette Intro 2018

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I’ve been in total use up my makeup mode lately, and I am trying to keep any of it from going bad in my collection, and get it all to be cruelty free.

You guys have seen this palette so many times before if you have been following our blog for a while, I’ve been using it exclusively for a few months. (While I may have this intro up way late, I have been working on this since the first of the year!)

This is the palette that I will be panning! I’ve never done this before so I chose a neutral palette with only six shadows so there is no way I can mess up, even if I’m not great at panning.

Here is what my palette looks like at the beginning of 2018!

Beauty Empties: Sept-Oct

Hello guys! I have a lot of beauty empties from these past few months, so lets get right into it. Grab a snack because this will be long!

Makeup:


Elizabeth Arden Skin Lotion – I love this so much, but it is discontinued and not cruelty free so I can’t repurchase.

Pacifica lip balm – I liked this except I went through it pretty quick. I probably would buy it again.

Laura geller lip pops lipgloss – I wish I could repurchase this! This is my favorite gloss formula ever but it was limited edition and is now discontinued.

Bobbi Brown Smokey eye mascara – Finally finished this! I’m glad to get another makeup product out of my collection that isn’t cruelty free.
