Essie nail polish

Hello my lovlies! I do enjoy making my horizons wider with this beauty blog. If it isnt obvious by the picture in today’s blog, i will be reviewing the nail side of the beauty world.

Now i always loved painting my nails, as a child i loved how i could express my colorful self through nail polish. It also meant bonding time with my mother which i always loved .

As i began my musical carrier i sort of shifted away from nail polish, it seemed every time i painted my nails, the second i brought out my violin they would chip. And then as i got into middle school and high school i realized i have zero patinces to sit and wait for nail polish to dry!

On the special moments that i do paint my nails Essie is always my favorite brand of nail polish. I love the wide variety of colors that they have. Not to mention the layer dry relatively fast.

And as many of you have probably realized over the years, i really really love the color pink. Out of all the pink Essie shades this one is my favorite. I love how it isnt like a hot hot pink, its a pink that can go with a lot of my outfits, its very natural looking, not a bold color that draws attention to me. Also blush pink is one of my favorite shades of pink in the world. At first i didnt like how the consistancy was so thin, one of the things that makes painting my nails such a bother is when i have to sit and do layers. I dont know if its just me, but when i paint my nails i want to be done as soon as humanly possible. In my opinion thicker consistancies of nail polish tend to take less time. Sure it takes a bit longer to dry, but at least i dont have to sit for hours on end waiting for each layer to dry. After using Essie for a few years now i’ve grown to actually liking the thinner nail polishes. My impatient self has learned that good things come those who wait.

Overall, i really do like this nail polish, and the Essie brand in general!

Hello guys! Today I’m going to share with you 3 products that I have back ups of in case I run out, I can’t live without these at the moment!

1. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream in the shade Natural Glow

This is the most perfect base product for me, it has spf, it is light coverage and keeps my skin hydrated. I’ve been using this for years and I really don’t plan on stopping. I like the dewy finish, (you can set it to be matte if you want) and it works great for every day for me! Here’s the fresh tube, you saw the old, almost empty one in the Used and Abused Products post!

2. Vapour Beauty Organic Makeup Cleansing Oil

Hello you guys! I don’t think I have done a beauty favorites since September, which is way too long. Here is the roundup of a few items I have been loving through December!

Face Products:


Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter in the shade Pearl – This has been my go to highlighter, It is a so so soft and buttery and glides on without moving your foundation, it is blinding, basically all glitter and shimmer. It has a slight purply pink shift to it and would look lovely on any of you cool toned fair girls!

Dirty Works Bye Bye Dark Circles Corrector and Concealer – This has been what I reached for almost all through December, It is so lightweight and didn’t dry out my undereyes, even with the dry and chilly weather. Review here!

Mascara:

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.

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.

Fall 2017 Ipsys!

Hello my lovelies!

So I’ve been a little forgetful when it comes to the ipsy bags, I am very sorry!

I completely forgot to do a September post of the September bag, so I decided to combine September and October’s bags into one big  fall ipsy bag review.

For September the first item I pulled out was…

Smash box photo finish primer in the shade of radiance

Now as much as this is a good product, I find I just don’t use it as much. Not that it’s bad, I just don’t really use it, this primer didn’t WOW me enough for me to use it daily.

Pacifica blush


Now I love the brand Pacifica, all their products are amazing! So I was so exited when I opened this one up, the two blushed are an amazing shade and apply as if you were naturally blushing, by far my favorite ipsy item so far!

Another Vanity Declutter!

Hi guys and welcome back to our blog! I recently did a makeup only declutter but the rest of my vanity got a little bit out of control, so let me show you what I am getting rid of:

Nail polish:


Zoya polish in the shade Mason – This looks really similar to a butter london polish I have and I prefer that one.

Butter London Nail Lacquer in the shade Knackered – This is a glitter transformer polish, I don’t really use polishes like this.

Butter London Nail Lacquer in the shade nude stilettos – This is a sheer nude, and if I was going to use a shade like this I probably just wouldn’t wear polish at all.

Butter London Nail Lacquer in the shade fairy lights – this is pretty but it is more for nail art, which I don’t do.

Nail four side buffer – I rarely ever use this and I just got a more compact one so I will let this go.

Perfume:


Jo Malone samples in the scents Nectarine Blossom and Honey, English Pear and Freesia and Peony and Blush Suede – I think I stole these from my mom so I am going to give them back to her, these are some of her favorite ones.

Makeup Brushes:


Terremere Kabuki Brush – This was nice but I never reached for it so I am going to give it away.

Tarte Mascara wand – this goes to some tarte lash product that I gave away, so I no longer need the brush.

It brushes for Ulta, angled brush for liner and brows – this was a little too flimsy of an angled brush for me, I recently got a becca one that I love so I don’t need this one.

Jewelry:

Navajo Necklace and Bracelet set – These are soo stunning except I never wear them. My mom’s friend collects jewelry and I think she would love these a lot so they are going to her.

Pearl earrings – I never wear dangly earrings because they get caught in my hair, these are so classic and I’m sure someone will love them.

Watercolor book earrings – These are handmade and so pretty but I don’t wear them, I know someone will love to have them.

Makeup bags:


I am getting rid of these two because I never use them. I realized a bit ago that i sort of hoard cosmetic bags and I am trying to fix that!

That is it for my declutter, I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Have a great day you guys 🙂
