Current Skincare Routine for Dry Skin

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I’m going to share my skincare with you, this routine has helped cure my dry patches and help me deal with my dry skin in the winter!

Step 1: Vapour beauty clarity cleansing oil

I always use this to take off my makeup, it is a good oil cleanser and it has been working for me. It is quite pricy so I am trying to find a comparable one from the drugstore!

Step 2: Juice Beauty Exfoliating Cleanser

This is a great skincare product, my skin feels gorgeous and soft after I use it. It is a gentle enough exfoliator, at least for my skin, to use everyday. So I do use it everyday as my face wash, and it is so moisturizing and really nice.

Step 3: The Body Shop hydrating toner Continue reading “Current Skincare Routine for Dry Skin”

Almay liquid liner in black

Hello loves!! Thank you for joining us for yet another fun blog! A quick thanks to all who have been following our blogs lately, and if youre new WELCOME we love you!

Now for those who have been following our blogs for awhile know that i have a slight obsession with lipsticks. Its such a problem! My second obsession though if definitley eyeliner. I am always on the hunt for the best eyeliner. One thats water proof, smudge proof and long lasting. And im always eager to try out brands that ive never heard of. ALMAY being one of them!

Now this retails for about $6 or $7 which is pretty affordable for an eyeliner. Now it doesnt look like you can purchase it from their website, but i do know you can get it at Walmart or Ulta!

Now what does this promise?

Get beautiful definition with this easy-to-use liquid eyeliner. Water-resistant formula lasts up to 16 hours without irritation. Unique “inkwell” design delivers fresh color every time. Flex-tip applicator provides mistake-proof control.

Thats what this eyeliner is supposed to do, now lets take it step by step.

Did it give me beautiful definition?

Fairly good, the tip was very fine which did make for a more precise application, but i will say it gave of a very liquidy consistancy even after shaking before using. It was kind of like if i were to use black water color as eyeliner, which i wasnt a huge fan of for wings. For a more natural look without wings it was okay.

Is it water resistant?

I will say i was shocked to find that it was water resistant. If i lay down, there is always one eye that gets really watery. I have no idea why, but laying down after doing my makeup is always risky because of it and i dont know how many times ive ruined my eyeliner by it. Thankfully when i used this product, although i dont like the water color looking wings it gave me, it did last through my leaky eyes.

16hr and no irritation?

I will say it lasted for about 9hrs, at least thats how long i was wearing the product for. I have no doubt that it would definitley have lasted longer if i had worn it. As for irritation it did make my eyes itch a bit when i drew one some wings, but if i didnt add wings there was no irritation.

Mistake proof control?

Ladies we’ve all been there before, those bad eyeliner days where the tip decides to like go crazy? So much for straight wings right?I will say that the tip is rather flexible and the times i have used this eyeliner, i have yet to muff anything up.

Now is it my favorite eyeliner in the whole entire world? No, it just personally isnt the type that i like. If it was a thicker/ darker more matte consistancy i think it would totally be a must have. Alas it is not, but i do like to use this product when im do lazy to go all out and want a more natural look.

Thats it for todays blog!

Beauty Empties: November – December

Hey guys, welcome back to our blog! Today I want to share with you my beauty empties for the month of November and December.

Makeup:

Butter London Plush Rush lip gloss in Free-fall – This was a gorgeous gloss! For me these seem quite similar to Buxom’s formula, and I enjoy those glosses just a little more, so I wouldn’t rebuy this.

LA colors lip gloss in clear – This is the best thick and hydrating clear gloss. I always put it over liquid lipsticks and I miss it a ton! Definitely going to repurchase.

It cosmetics Hello Light Cream Highlighter – I used this up this year. I repurchased it already, I love it. It is the perfect cream highlight for everyday!

Dr.Hauschka stick corrector in shade 01 – I did like this concealer but the shade was way too pink for me. I like the formula but I think I can find something better. Wouldn’t repurchase!

EOS lip balm – EOS is not cruelty free so I would not repurchase! But I also don’t feel like this hydrates my lips much at all, so I wouldn’t recommend these balms.

NYX Worth the Hype Mascara – I love this mascara! I cannot wait to go repurchase it, I like the consistency and the effect it gives to my lashes.

NYX Microbrow pencil in taupe- This eyebrow pencil was lovely. I just ran out of it this morning and I am going to repurchase it today because (not to be dramatic here) I can’t live without it.

Skincare:

Burts Bees Facial Cleansing towelettes – These were really good makeup wipes! I mostly used them for swatches and I would definitely repurchase.

SheaMoisture Youth Infusing Mud Mask – This mud mask kind of dried out my skin, I’m not sure how I felt about it and I wouldn’t repurchase. Continue reading “Beauty Empties: November – December”

Massive Makeup Haul!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Happy New Year, and happy holidays! Today I wanted to share a haul of makeup I’ve bought myself and some that I’ve gotten for Christmas. Let’s jump into it:

Makeup:

Becca First Light priming filter –

I have been using the deluxe sample of this for so long and I love it. I’m so happy to now have the full size to go through because this is my hydrating primer holy grail.

It cosmetics Hello Light Creme Luminizer – 

I finished my old one and this is a repurchase! I love this cream highlight and it is so pretty on my skin. It is easy to work with and I am excited to go through this new one.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop –

I’ve never tried any of Becca’s skin perfectors, so I’m so excited to try this. This is too deep on me as a highlighter but I think it would look gorgeous as an eyeshadow!

Bobbi Brown Deluxe eye and cheek palette –

This was an incredibly generous gift from a family friend. I love bobbi brown products (I wish they were cruelty free). But I am excited to use this because I’m sure it is good quality and I like that it is an all-in-one. Continue reading “Massive Makeup Haul!”

5 Minute Makeup Routine for Everyday

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog. Today I wanted to share the quick 5 minute makeup routine that I’ve been doing before I leave for classes or if I get ready in a hurry.

Step 1:

I use a hydrating primer to give my skin a little bit of a boost. My favorite is the Becca first light primer, it gives you bright and pretty skin!

Step 2:

Concealer! I always have dark circles and getting rid of them makes me look much more put together. I use the Dr. Hauschka cover stick concealer and just blend it in with my finger quickly. I always use the ELF tone correcting powder to set my concealer just so it doesn’t crease. Continue reading “5 Minute Makeup Routine for Everyday”

Current Winter Skincare Routine!

Hello you guys! Welcome back to our blog! Today I wanted to share with you my skincare routine, I haven’t done one of these in ages, so it is definitely time for an update, and all of this is cruelty free this time!

This is the skincare routine that has prevented me from getting flaky dry patches this year. It is only five steps, so much simpler than my old routine.

  1. vapour cleansing oil


This is what I use to take off my makeup at night, it works so well. It leaves an oily but hydrating film on your skin, that film will come off if you double cleanse, or if you towel your face dry so you can use it on its own as well.

2. terremere Tea and Aloe Hydrating Cleanser


This is my second cleanse! It does a good job of taking off any leftover makeup, and leaves my skin very soft and hydrated. I love that this is not stripping, it is a lovely cream cleanser. Continue reading “Current Winter Skincare Routine!”
