Mini Makeup Haul from the Drugstore!

Hello guys! I was traveling this weekend and found some brands that we don’t have in the drugstores where I live, so I picked up a few new things!

Wet and Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipsticks

I got the shades rebel rose and give me mocha which are my favorite sort of deep nude shades to wear everyday. These two were calling me and I couldn’t pass up the chance to try the formula!

Big Makeup/Vanity Declutter!

Hello guys! I feel like it hasn’t been that long since I went through my collection but there was just some stuff in there that I needed to get rid of.

Makeup:


Tarte Brow Toolbox – I never use this because the shades are too brown for me, but I think Christine might love it so i’m going to gift it to her.

Laura Geller Lipstick in Berry – I don’t feel like berry lips suit me very well anymore so I’m getting rid of this one.

Jane Iredale lip stain in the shade forever peach – I liked this at first but I don’t think the bright coral orange color suits me well when I have red hair.

W3ll people Bio Brightening Invisible Powder – I somehow ended up with two so I’m going to give away this one.

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Mean Girls – This is too bright for me, but I think it would look gorgeous on christines tanner complexion so I’ll gift it to her.

Stila Cushion Gel liner in sapphire ink – I don’t like this formula at all so I’m getting rid of this.

Bareminerals Single Shadows in Rhyme and Lyre – Both of these are gorgeous but I have dupes for them in palettes.

NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick Review

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog! I got this product a little while ago and I know there are millions of reviews on these lipsticks already but I wanted to share my take on it!

Promise: weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish! (from NYX website)

img_4020

Overview:

  • Cruelty free!
  • Will be a long wearing liquid lipstick
  • Price: $6.99 (bargain!)
  • dries matte

This lipstick has quickly become one of my favorites and for me definitely lives up to the hype that it gets! The formula is really lightweight and whipped which I enjoy because I like the feeling of nothing on my lips. It dries down fairly quick, definitely in less than a minute. The end result is transferproof, it doesn’t come off if you touch it and for me this works even better than the Too Faced Melted Mattes in that department. the applicator is really nice as well. In a lot of ways this reminds me of the tartiest matte lip paints, those being just a little more lightweight. These are so amazing for the price! The lasting power is about 4 hours with an even fade. This does not emphasize lip lines on my lips personally which I really enjoy.

I got the shade Bedtime Flirt which might be the best nude ever for fair skin!

Here is the applicator:

Swatch:

Pros and Cons:

Pros:

  • transferproof
  • looks matte but not one-dimensional
  • gorgeous shade selection
  • light and more whipped formula
  • nice applicator which made it easy to apply
  • no emphasizing of my lip lines
  • nice amount of product
  • not drying on the lips

Cons:

  • Lasting power was not as long as I’d expected
  • A second coat will cause stickiness so try not to touch up unless you need to

That is all I have for you guys today! I hope you enjoyed my review and I know many of you must have tried this out for yourselves so let me know how your experience went down in the comments!

Top 5 Lip Products for Fall!

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog! I have been obsessed with darker brown nude lips lately, and I wanted to share my top five. I have glosses and matte lipsticks and liquid and cream lipsticks in here basically all different finishes, light to dark shades and sheer to opaque so there is something for everyone!

1. LA colors Matte Lipstick in the shade in love

This is a matte finish lipstick and it is the most stunning deeper brown nude that you can build up to a more edgy look for swipe on one coat for a beautiful natural look. I absolutely love the staying power of this and I don’t think it is drying in the slightest.

2. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade Very Victoria


This one is way more subtle and is a stunning brown nude for fair to medium skin tones. It is so creamy, matte and I actually love this for everyday. I have done a review on it if you want more information!

September Beauty Favorites!

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you my september beauty favorites! I have quite a few because I bought some new things this month and last month and I have loved a bunch of them.

Too Faced Totally Cute palette –

I didn’t think that I would enjoy this as much as I have been. The mattes in here are lovely and I have been using them so often that I am thinking about picking up the natural matte nine pan palette. The go to look I do is storm cloud on the lid with frosted donut in the crease, beautiful for fall.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Detox Frothy scrub –

This is such a good exfoliator scrub! It really gets off all the dead skin and leaves you with super soft skin. This is also super cheap!

Benefit Dallas Blush –

I have recently been rediscovering how much I enjoy using this. It goes on so smooth and is really blendable. I have never worn this and had it look overdone or unnatural which I really like.

Lipstick! –

Buxom Full On Matte Lipstick – These more nude-pink shades have been my everyday go tos lately. I love this shade and formula. It does plump your lips and feels a little bit cooling and stingy when you put it on, but it doesn’t hurt at all. The actual lipstick is really creamy which I enjoy.

Liquid Suede Lipstick from NYX in the shade Soft Spoken – This more cool toned brown lip is something I also have been liking. The more I use this formula the more I enjoy it. It is pretty and I have been wearing it a lot lately because I feel like it plays well with my darker eye looks.

elf Moisturizing Lipstick in the shade Razzle Dazzle Red – This is not only one of my favorite lipstick formulas now but this shade has been beautiful for fall. I love a dark red vampy lip and this was perfect.

Those are my september favorites! I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know what you have been loving down below!

August 2017 ipsy bag!

screenshot_2017-08-22-09-05-01_kindlephoto-1557152414.jpg
What do I look forward to once the new month begins???

Ipsy bags!!!

And these month’s was very unique! August bag had 3 different designs, so ontop of the surprise makeup, you got the surprise of finding out which bag you got!

I got the link and  orange bag that says  “peace, love, lipstick “. Which is just perfect considering I LOVE lipstick!

The first thing I got in my bag was…

Formula 10.06 pores be pure skin clarifying mud mask  strawberry yarrow version


This not only smells like strawberry yogurt, but it really helps your skin. Leaving it soft and pure.

Next was..

Balm voyage shadow luminizer 


At first I was a little hesitant about this, but after using it I started to really like it! This shadow really does illuminate!
Sugar cream eyeliner was next


Now this one I truly thought I would give to Hailey, when I opened it the cream felt as if it were melted. Leaving a very sloppy application. The tip also broke the first time i used it so I had to work my way around the broken tip. Other than that, after using it for a bit. This eyeliner kinda grew on me, definitely not may favorite eyeliner, but still a good one.
Clarria cosmetics tinted primer was next


This one i was really exited about. I’ve never used a tinted primer, and it definitely like this! It’s very light and helps your foundation give a more finished look. Even using just the tinted primer itself makes it look like you have foundation on. I really like it!

Hikari blush and contour was last.


I didn’t like this as much. No matter how use it, you’ll always get more blush than bronzer. So this definitely wasn’t my favorite.
Over all I really enjoyed this month’s month’s bag, and I’m very exited about what September has in-store!!
Ta ta!
