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!

Products I Want to Use Up – Going Cruelty Free

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog! Today I want to show you everything I plan on using up this year!

Lately animal testing has become a bigger deal. It’s heartbreaking to see pictures of the damage (you will cry), so I made the decision to buy only cruelty free makeup from now on. (Christine has as well!) By using up everything I have in my collection that is not cruelty free, I want to be completely cruelty free by 2018. This is really important to me, I also love animals and I feel good about making this decision!

Benefit High beam – I will be using this up, since I spent quite a bit of money on it and I enjoy using it. I already use this everyday, and I will continue after using up the Loreal Lumi!

Five Products Youtube Made Me Buy

Hi everyone! Welcome back to our blog, and welcome if you are new here! Today I’m going to be talking about five makeup items that I would have not bought without the YouTube beauty community! I’m sure everyone who loves makeup has run out and bought the product that their favorite youtuber or blogger is loving, I am completely guilty!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara 

This mascara was used by so many of my favorite beauty bloggers and I finally had to buy it! I’m glad to say that I think it was worth the hype, it is a great mascara, especially for its price. It makes your lashes really full and also grabs the small ones on the outer corners of your eyes.

I hope you all had an amazing holiday season and now it is time to start fresh in 2017!

Tarte Play with Clay quad –

I absolutely love the colors in this palette, their neutral and pigmented and you can create so many looks from this one quad. I also mentioned this in a huge Tarte haul ages back, here it is if you would like to check it out! There are two matte browns, one shimmer brown and an inner corner pink toned highlight, and i’ve been using this for eye looks so much lately.

Full Face with only Cruelty Free Makeup

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog! I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season, with Christmas coming soon, I’m incredibly excited. I created this look when going to see A Christmas Carol at a local theater, it was relatively formal so I decided to go for a slightly more dramatic look than usual. I’m happy to say that finding cruelty free products in my collection wasn’t a struggle at all!

Face makeup:


For my base, I used a Juice Beauty cc cream, it gives me a bit of coverage and evens out my skin tone nicely, with hydration. Then I set my face with bare minerals translucent powder, which I am loving! I mentioned it in my last favorites. For concealer, I used the lightest shade from this Ellen Tracy palette.

Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss Review and Swatches

So many of you guys expressed interest in this in my november favorites! I love this product and for some of you who were on the fence about buying it hopefully this review and information will help you to make a decision.

The promise: this eyeshadow delivers wet look shine as a powder. It has a pudding like texture but dries instantly to a powder on your lid. Lasts all day, is crease resistant, build able and long wearing.

Price point: at $24 it is definitely considered a high end product. Continue reading “Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss Review and Swatches”
