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!”

3 Favorite Dark Lipsticks for Winter!

Hello guys! It is almost officially winter and I have been loving dark berry lip colors and just darker shades in general! Today I’m going to share with you my favorite dark lipsticks for winter. These happen to all be from the drugstore and are ridiculously affordable.

I did do a post like this last year, if you would like to see how much my blogging skills have improved, click here 

Anyways! Here are my recommendations!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the shade Chocolate Berries –


This is a beautiful, more wearable, brown toned purple! I love the formula and the color on this and it is such a lovely lipstick. This one is not a matte finish, instead its more of a satin. I like that because I think a little luminosity makes your lips look bigger which is important when you are wearing dark colors!

Elf Moisturizing Lipstick in the shade Razzle Dazzle Red –


This is my favorite dark red of all time. Against fair skin this looks beautiful and on medium and deep I think you would still really love this. It’s a very universal deep red! It is beautiful and lasts a long time even though it isn’t a matte formula. This won’t bleed outside your lip lines but it will transfer so you do have to be a little careful with it!

NYX Simply Vamp lipstick in the shade Bewitching –
