One Month – One Palette Finale

Hi guys! Welcome back to our blog! So this whole past month of July, I have been only using one palette: The Bobbi Brown Beauty Book Palette. It has six eyeshadows and a blush and bronzer so I had plenty to use.

I am happy to say that I actually used this almost everyday for the whole month and I really did enjoy it. The eyeshadows were not bad, the only duds for me were the matte brown transition shade which lacked pigment/was chalky and the silver shade which had a lot of fallout.

My absolute favorite shade was the champagne-pink shimmer (shade name: Blush Gold)! It is stunning and the formula is amazing on that one. I have to find a cruelty free dupe because I need that shade in my collection.

I used the white shade to set my foundation and concealer and it worked fantastically which was actually quite neat to discover!

Massive Beauty Declutter!

Hi guys! Lately I have bought some new products and its time for me to get rid of the old stuff that I no longer am using.  I’ve cleaned out my makeup and also my skincare and samples for this declutter so I’m going to show you what I’m getting rid of.

I also know that Christine has been beauty purging as well so maybe you’ll see a post like this from her soon!

Makeup:


I never color correct except for canceling redness so I’m getting rid of the bulky palette and I’ll purchase green concealer separately. That becca quad is not good quality in my opinion but christine wanted to try it so I’ll give it to her. The mascara is expired so it is going away! I never reach for coral so the milani gloss got no use from me. I also never reach for single shadows so I duped all of those seven shades in palettes. they are so amazing though, if you like single shadows I highly recommend these!

Nails:


I didn’t use the nude polishes from Deborah Lippman or the barielle. The butter london one was so cool toned it looked awful on me, and the pink zoya polish is just not me anymore. I also never do nail art so I don’t need the stickers, and I hate nail files I am keeping only one. Continue reading “Massive Beauty Declutter!”

One Month – One Palette Challenge: July!

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog! I’ve seen a couple other girls do this on wordpress and so I wanted to do it myself on this Bobbi Brown palette that I want to use more. It is basically where you only use this one palette for a month, I think that it will help me keep this in rotation because I never use it. I never use this and want to give it some love since it was a gift and I could never give it away even though you all know I love decluttering. After this I’ll give it a break and then I actually want to do a panthatpalette challenge on it, which will be fun!

*we will be posting so much this summer so we hope you all enjoy what we have in store for you!*


Beginning of the month : starting point!


As you can see only the white and silver eyeshadows have really been used. I really don’t give this palette too much love but it is beautiful. Continue reading “One Month – One Palette Challenge: July!”

Roundup of Things I’ve Gotten Recently!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog! First we both want to say one huuuuuge thank you for 1,000 followers, that was an amazing milestone and we want to do a little Q and A for you all to get to know us better, so details on that will be coming, we’ll ask for questions soon!

Anyways, I’ve gotten a lot of new products lately, not only makeup but also skincare. I did a makeup swap with three friends and also went to the drugstore to pick up some stuff. Lets dive in to all of the things that I got and of course, I will review almost all of these products for you guys!

Makeup:


Lorac pro matte palette – This was from the swap! It’s amazing, I love the PRO eyeshadow formula so much. I am incredibly excited, I have been trying to find a good all matte palette for a while!

NYX liquid suede in Soft Spoken – This is so beautiful! These remind me of the Revlon HD matte lip colors, which is amazing because this is cruelty free and revlon is not. This shade is a super pretty browny nude.

NYX Lip Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt – This was so totally transferproof which I love, this shade is a pinkier nude and I know I’ll be getting a lot of wear out of it!

Yet Another Huge Beauty Product Declutter

Hello everyone! I’ve been going crazy with spring cleaning and I have been decluttering out the things I don’t use. I realized I have so many samples that I don’t use and a lot of products I hold on to for no reason! I recently did one of these so I will link it here for you guys to check out!

So let’s get into the decluttering:

Eyeshadow:


 

After getting myself some really nice eyeshadow I realized that these baked Laura Geller eyeshadows (left) aren’t that pigmented, so I’m letting them go. The color sites mineral shadow on the bottom is really great formula wise but I don’t use those bright green and blue shades. The neutral dr haushka shadows are not something I reach for since I have so many neutral mattes. I also realized that I have all the shades from this lancome palette in my collection so I’m going to get rid of it. Continue reading “Yet Another Huge Beauty Product Declutter”

Five Products Worth the Splurge

Hello everyone, welcome back to our blog! After I made a post about high end products I didn’t think were worth the money, I thought I would show you some of my absolute all time favorites that are most definitely worth the price.

1. Tarte Tarteist mascara


This is the best mascara for volumizing! It also makes your lashes super black. This formula is wet at first and will flake so let it sit for a week or two before using it, it won’t dry out quickly at all. I love that this wand separates and curls your lashes beautifully!

2. Tarte lights camera lashes mascara Continue reading “Five Products Worth the Splurge”
