July Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I’m going to share with you some products I’ve been loving throughout the month of July. Lets get into it:

Face Products:

Milani Make It Last setting spray – I’ve been to a few events in the heat this past month and this setting spray has really helped keep my makeup on longer, and it doesn’t make my face look dehydrated!

Tarte Park Avenue Princess Bronzer – I am pretty sure this was in last month’s favorites, oops! But I love the tone of this, it never makes my skin look muddy and instead makes me look naturally tan!

Eye Products:

NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel – This has been my go-to! It keeps my brow powder/pomade in all day and it doesn’t make your brows crunchy, even though it’s medium hold. I highly recommend you pick this up.

NYX Worth The Hype Mascara – My lashes look so good with this mascara on. It is a more natural looking mascara, lots of length and definition and a little bit of volume. It stays on all day and is really black, I love it!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Park Avenue Princess Bronzer Review

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 “Tarte Amazonian Clay Park Avenue Princess Bronzer Review”

Pacifica Dream Big Mascara Review

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I have been testing out this mascara from Pacifica for the last few weeks. It has an adjustable wand, so I was dying to try out that feature, of course!

Overview:

  • Price: $16
  • Cruelty free and vegan!

Promise: 

7 in 1:
• Lash Serum • Instant Length • Lash Lifting • Volumizing • Conditioning • Rich Color • 2 in 1 Brush

To be honest, I have quite mixed feelings on this mascara, so I’m just going to lay out my thoughts, and you can decide whether this mascara will work for you!

This mascara has kind of a jelly/clay formula, it is thick and goopy. It doesn’t weigh down your lashes, it actually curls mine nicely. This doesn’t give me much length but it will give you lots of volume. This just got so clumpy on me. The product is thick and it takes a long time to comb through your lashes if you would like to have more than three eyelashes on each eye and separate them. I just don’t have time for that in order to get the look I want when I have so many other mascaras that work better.

Used and Abused Makeup Products Tag

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I’ve been watching these videos on youtube and I absolutely love them so I decided to do one! In flatlays on instagram or blog posts, I never show you guys what my loved and used makeup actually looks like. It doesn’t stay perfect and insta-worthy for long!

Here are four of my most used makeup products that will be empties soon:

1. Juice Beauty CC cream in natural glow


This one is almost gone, the cap is broken, it’s leaking, it is just a mess. I have repurchased this several times, it is truly a great cc cream, holy grail status! I also have a backup for whenever I run out because I love this so much! It looks so natural on the skin and lasts so long. It hydrates my skin and makes it look so healthy.

2. Bareminerals Translucent Veil Powder

 


This is supposed to be a pressed powder, I have no idea when it stopped being a pressed powder and just sort of became a loose powder. I’m just too lazy to repress it when it only has a tiny bit left. This has been dropped, repressed 4 times and carried in my bag almost everywhere, it has definitely served me well and I love this product because it blurs out my pores!

3. ELF eyebrow kit in Taupe


This is the first eyebrow product I ever got, the lid has broken off, it has massive pan and it has certainly been well loved. I really still love this for my brows and I can’t wait to finish it off and buy a new one!

4. It cosmetics hello Light Luminizer


This is something I’ve loved and used for a couple of years, it is so pretty on the skin! It is also almost gone, been carried with me everywhere and I absolutely love it. I definitely will be finishing this up and buying a new one soon!

I hope you guys enjoyed this kind of lighthearted and fun post, if you want to do it and you have a blog, then go for it. See you guys soon!

Wet and Wild Liquid Catsuit Lipstick Review

Hello you guys and welcome back to our blog! A couple weeks ago I picked up these gorgeous liquid lipsticks from wet n wild, and I do have some final thoughts on the formula that I’d like to share with you!

If you want to see the haul post click here, otherwise lets jump right in!

Overview:

  • Cruelty free!
  • price: $4.99 (so cheap!)

Promise:

Made with glammed out superpowers, it goes on glossy yet transforms into a high-pigmented matte finish with some serious staying power. (ulta’s website!)

I got two shades from this range, rebel rose (a gorgeous pinky mauve) and Give me Mocha (a stunning dark grungy brown). Since I did pick up two shades I decided to compare them to each other.

So, the two do have some differences, which means that the line isn’t fully consistent. Rebel Rose has a more lightweight smooth formula with intense pigmentation and is matte almost right away, an absolutely fricking winnner! Give me mocha is a bit patchy, thinner and dries slower. With two coats it is opaque, and these do layer beautifully so after I did that with give me mocha I had no problems.

Mini Ulta Makeup Haul!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! A few days ago I went to Ulta with Christine and bought a few things! Mostly practical things. I think I am putting myself on a no-buy after this because I need to save up for christmas gifts for everyone in my family!

Anyways let’s get into it!

Face Products:


Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – I’d never tried this sponge and I had heard so many good things about it! So far my first impression is good as well, I actually love it! I’ve never tried an original beauty blender so I won’t know how it compares, but I like this so far.

Becca First Light Priming Filter – I heard that this was hydrating and lovely from one of my favorite beauty gurus on youtube so I decided to pick up a mini size. I have a couple of primers to work through first before I commit to a big size of this one.

3 Favorite Dark Lipsticks for Winter!

Hello guys! It is almost officially winter and I have been loving dark berry lip colors and just darker shades in general! Today I’m going to share with you my favorite dark lipsticks for winter. These happen to all be from the drugstore and are ridiculously affordable.

I did do a post like this last year, if you would like to see how much my blogging skills have improved, click here 

Anyways! Here are my recommendations!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the shade Chocolate Berries –


This is a beautiful, more wearable, brown toned purple! I love the formula and the color on this and it is such a lovely lipstick. This one is not a matte finish, instead its more of a satin. I like that because I think a little luminosity makes your lips look bigger which is important when you are wearing dark colors!

Elf Moisturizing Lipstick in the shade Razzle Dazzle Red –


This is my favorite dark red of all time. Against fair skin this looks beautiful and on medium and deep I think you would still really love this. It’s a very universal deep red! It is beautiful and lasts a long time even though it isn’t a matte formula. This won’t bleed outside your lip lines but it will transfer so you do have to be a little careful with it!

NYX Simply Vamp lipstick in the shade Bewitching –

NYX Butter Gloss Review

Hello guys! I recently bought a couple of new NYX lip products and one of them was this butter gloss!

It turns out I actually have been really loving the formula so here is my final thoughts on it:

(From the NYX website)

Each glossy color delivers sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky, leaving your lips soft, supple and kissable.

Hello guys! I am super excited to share this post with you all because (spoiler) I absolutely love this lipstick and the formula.


So this was a super cheap marshalls find, and I got the shade razzle dazzle red, which is a deep wine-red and I think it is absolutely beautiful.

Promise: The velvety, satin texture glides on lips with vibrant color and luminous shine. Enriched with Shea and Vitamins A, C, & E to nourish and hydrate the lips. The rich, creamy formula seals in moisture for long-lasting wear and comfort.

Overview:

  • Cruelty free
  • Price: $3.00 (bargain)
  • satin finish, not a liquid or matte lipstick
  • Fourteen different shades
