5 Samples I Will Buy a Full Size Of

Hi guys! I realized I had a lot of deluxe size samples that I had sitting in my collection that I actually love so much! So I decided to do this post and tell you guys about what I have tried out that I love and would buy the full size of. (All of these are cruelty free)

1. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner


This stuff is absolutely amazing! I love it so much, it is incredibly black and really does not move all day. This has also lasted me a long time without drying out so that is a huge bonus. I will most definitely buy a full size!

2. Smashbox Photo Finish Lash Primer


This is absolutely amazing! I did a review on it a bit ago if you want to go read it. I will not bore those of you who already know how much I love this! Lately I have been putting it on my brows to see if it will help them grow out a bit, and it actually is working, my lashes also felt more nourished and stronger.

High-end Products That Aren’t Working For Me

Hi guys! Welcome back to our blog, I have 3 high end products to share with you that just really are not working out. I dislike them but I spent so much money on them I can’t bring myself to give them away.

First up we have the Tarte Tarteist Contour palette



I tried a lot to make this work for me, but the two contour shades are too warm for my very cool toned complexion and the blush is too dark for me. The lighter contour shade which i could make work has no pigment in it. The white shade in the middle has glitter in it all over and has no pigmentation which I dislike. The shades don’t feel buttery in my opinion and seem harder pressed which I don’t personally like, but maybe someone else would. Overall I don’t think this is worth the youtube hype. I have a $3 contour kit that beats this and this costs $45.

Smashbox Photomatte Eyes Palette Review

Hello guys! Here is the second thing I wanted to review for you guys. I am so excited to share my review of this palette with you all. I got this for my birthday and I’ve been playing around with it a lot so here goes:


Overview:

  • 12 matte wet/dry shades that can be used as liner, shadow or brow powder
  • 2 double-size base shades
  • Cruelty Free!
  • High End Price: $49

Promise: Each shade in this matte collection is a multitasker – from stay-put shadows that double as liner to brow powders that also work as shadows. And to make it even more versatile, each ultra-silky, richly pigmented shade can also be used wet for a more intense effect.

Lots of April Beauty Favorites

Hello everyone! This month I’ve been using so many new products and I’m excited to share with you all some things I’ve been particularly loving all month. I hope you guys enjoy this post!

Lips:

Becca Beach Tint Lip Shimmer Souffle in the shade Rasberry Opal 


This is such a pretty lip gloss that is natural looking and has a non sticky formula. It feels like there is nothing on your lips and it also has really good color payoff. Sometimes glosses don’t have good pigment but this one does and I feel like it is the perfect shade for spring!

Buttler London Plush Rush Lipgloss in the shade Free Fall


This is another gloss that I love, I paired it with the Tarte amazonian clay lipstick in Neutral Peach to make a beautiful mauve shade. This one is also non sticky and I am enjoying the formula. Continue reading “Lots of April Beauty Favorites”

Exciting Makeup Haul from my Birthday!

Hello everyone! So a few days ago it was my birthday and I got loads of gifts from friends and family which I’m all very thankful for! I’m going to show you all what I got makeup wise, as I’ll be doing reviews on most of these products and I want you all to see what new things I’ll be working with.

Smashbox:

Photofinish lash primer –  im really excited to see how this affects how long my lashes look  when I wear mascara and if it’s worth the money.

Photofinish hydrating under eye primer – hopefully this stops my undereye concealer creases, it will be a holy grail and lifesaver if it does.

Full exposure mascara – this is one of those cult favorites i’ve seen on youtube so I’m super excited to try it and it will most definitely be in a review for you guys!
