Grommet

20171110_164416

I have been so obsessed with the grommet trend lately, if you follow my instagram you would have also seen this post. When I saw this jacket I had to have it, it’s trendy but I know I will be wearing this year round and not just during the fall and winter time.

I purchased this jacket at Ross so I can not link this exact one but you can check out this one from GUESS or this one from Forever21.

I purchased this crop top at Forever21, it was so inexpensive I also purchased it in black and left the white one behind, kinda regretting it now. Similar top here.

The black lace-up skirt I purchased it at Forever21 and the exact one I have is sold out but I did find this similar one, here. The booties are from JustFab via Plato’s closet (my sisters booties) a alternative, here.

Lastly this cute velvet ring purse from Ross, (thanks to my twin) she bought this for me. The straps are adjustable which is a plus for me because I hate when I can’t carry a purse as a crossbody. I love the gold hardware and the texture paired together. You can purchase this similar one if you’d like.

Covergirl Review.

PhotoGrid_1503609953211

Something I have mentioned here over and over again is that I love to try new foundations and mascara. I have seen a lot of beauty youtubers mention this mascara and foundation and for the most part everyone seems to love them. But like always, I’m always late to the bandwagon because I love to see and read reviews on makeup then I test it out for two weeks or a month. Now let’s get started and keep reading to find out my thoughts on these two products.

1. Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation.

PhotoGrid_1503608622279

This foundation lives up to it’s title, vitalist healthy elixir. It makes your skin look so healthy and fresh. It is very easy to glide onto the skin and very blendable. Since this foundation is contains antioxidants and vitamins it does smell like a skincare product but ai do not mind. It is full coverage and lightweight on the skin. All I add is two pumps to a damped ecotools sponge. You can pack up as much foundation and your skin wont feel heavy. I have dry skin to oily skin and this foundations lasts all long, at least for me it does. I wear the color Buff Beige.

This was taken last friday early in the morning in natural lighting. Now you can see that on the left I have no foundation and on the right I have foundation on and it makes your skin really look healthy and glowy. Right?

2. Covergirl Total Tease Mascara.

I really love this mascara this leaves your lashes nice and defined. The brush brushes your lashes evenly and makes them look nice and flirty. I love the brush has a tease comb at the end for some instant fun lift on the edges of your lashes. I really recommend this.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post. Have any of you tried these two?

Ecotools review. (Brush set & Sponge)

IMG_20170705_125922_36320170705_154246

I have really been loving this eco tools brush set. The new look has a pale looking handle, softer bristles and a much more aesthetically pleasing look. The brushes pick up a lot of product which is a plus and for the price they are really good quality. My old set is still in good condition the bristles dont come off when you clean them.

The sponge doesnt soak up my foundation. This sponge is super easy to clean. It gets really big when damped.

The new and old brush so you can see the difference. I had the yellow (old) for about 4 years I believe.

Current favorites.

Hello everyone. Today I want to talk about my current favorites that I think all of you will enjoy. I have been using these three products for about a month trying to get a good use out of them so I can really explain how they really work. All these three products are really good and definitely will be re-purchasing.

PhotoGrid_1495070672836

E.l.f HD lifting concealer – This concealer is so good and it is only $3. Now the only negative I have about this product is that it only comes in three shades. I bought the lightest one in the shade light and as seen above it is a little dark for my skin tone. I still tested this product out and once I apllied it, it actually blended into my skin really well and covered up my dark circles. This concealer claims to minimize your fine lines and uplifts your under eye area which I totally agree, when I applied this I instantly saw my eyes look more open and youthful looking. I wish I took before and after pictures but if you want to see a photo let me know and I will post a picture on instagram or here on the blog. This concealer doesn’t crease up and it is very light weight on the skin and not heavy. The consistency feels really good. This concealer has vitamin c, green tea and mulberry for lifting and soothing benefits.

Wet n wild megaglo contouring palette – When I purchased this palette I wasn’t sure if I was going to love it because I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about it. This palette has been out for a while but I finally decided to take the plunge and buy it. Julia Havens on youtube raves about this on her channel so I gave in and I can see why she loves it. I have the shade Dulce De Leche and it is a perfect shade for me as a bronzer. I do not contour with it because I much prefer it as a bronzer. The highlight side I use as a setting powder and it is a perfect shade for me. The only two things I hate about this palette is 1, it is very powdery so you have to tap out the eccess and 2, it can be a little patchy and sometimes I have to blend for a while and make sure I use a good brush, which I use my eco tools powder brush to bronze up my face. I do want to purchase the shade caramel toffee as well but Target didn’t have it. I also love how silky the texture is when you swatch it.

Wet n wild 1 step wonder gel – I bought this nail polish at Target in the shade Coral support. I have been wearing this shade non-stop on my fingers and toes and get a lot of compliments on it. This shade is perfect for spring and summer. This polish dries fast and it doesn’t chip easily which is a plus.

I hope you all enjoy this post. Also thank you all for reading and supporting my blog.

Review: Benefit They’re real tinted primer.

photogrid_1487717306078

I was gifted this Benefit They’re real tinted primer mascara as a secret santa gift. I was super happy when I opened my Sephora gift box because I have been wanting to try this product out. So whoever gifted me this, Thank you. I have been testing this product out since I received it to see if it is worth reviewing for the blog. Guess what? It is. I have been using this almost every single day since Christmas eve.

photogrid_1487717008867

Before without product – I wanted to show you all a picture of my lashes without anything on them. My lashes are short and thin. Sadly I was not gifted with long eye lashes.

With tinted primer only – I love using the tinted primer by itself on my no make-up, make-up days. This primer adds enough length and color to my lashes where it makes them look natural. On the photo, I only applied one coat.

Mascara over primer – I applied my Kiko Milano mascara over the tinted primer and I love the combo makes my eye lashes look.

photogrid_1487717410237

Now let’s talk about why I love this product.

1. You can wear it by itself for some nice, natural looking lashes without anything else on.

2. The color is in Mink brown and it is the perfect shade for girls who have thin lashes like me.

3. The brush brushes out the lashes out evenly and adds just about the right amount of length.

4. You can add as many layers as you want and it will not clump your lashes.

5. It dries fast after applying but the good thing is, you can apply your favorite mascara over it with no hassle because it leaves your lashes soft and moisturized.

Overall this is a very good product and I truly recommend this to all of you.

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation: Review.

1483658737167

Happy New Year to you all. Hopefully this year is better than the last. Let’s make it a great and confident year.

Today I want to talk about the Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Longwear Liquid Foundation. Now this isn’t my own foundation, it’s my twin sisters and since I’ve been wanting to try it out, I thought I would test it out to see if I would love to commit to it. Long story short, I love it. Now let’s get into why I love it and why I think everyone else will love it too.

20170105_153218

All Nighter Waterproof Longwear Liquid Foundation – This foundation claims to be full coverage, matte finish and oil free.

photogrid_1483660305186

Ok now the test and why I love this foundation. I’m rating the foundation by the three things it say’s on the bottle.

1. Full Coverage – I used one pump and applied it with my fingers and blended with a damped beauty blender. I think it is full coverage, as you can see on the photo, it left a nice and airbrushed look and for one pump it covered my dark circles. With two pumps, I’m sure I would have none. But a yes to full coverage.

2. Matte Finish – When I applied this, it instantly looked matte. I have dry skin and this worked very well on me. Throughout the day it still stayed matte. So matte finish, yes.

3. Oil Free – When I pumped this onto the back of my hand to apply on my skin, it didn’t feel oily, doesn’t give my skin a shine either. So I believe that this foundation really is oil free.

Now the waterproof part worked out perfectly because I took my son a bath and when I took him out the bath tub he put his drenched hair on my face and instantly I thought, “NO!! My foundation is going to come off,” After I dresses him I checked my skin and it left no water marks, no lines of foundation coming off. My makeup was still put. I need to go buy own, ASAP. In case you are wondering I used the shade 3.0

I hope you all enjoyed this post and helped you all out in case you are deciding to buy this foundation. If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask.

Buxom Review

20161011_141318

How many people still wear lip gloss? I haven’t wore lip gloss in a while. I would wear it all the time in High school, (my boyfriend hated it.) These Buxom lip glosses are so good and so is the whipped liquid lipstick. I love trying different makeup brands and Buxom is one that I’m really glad I tried. I’ve heard a lot of good reviews about them and some bad but I didn’t let the bad get in the way of me trying them because everyone has a different opinion and we don’t all like the same things. I hope you all enjoy the post. Have any of you tried Buxom products? If so what do you love?

photogrid_1478802728321

Wildly Whipped lightweight Liquid Lipstick – The whipped formula is what sold me on this. The texture feels so good when you apply it. It goes on very smoothly, very nice and pigmented, 2lasts all day and it is a semi matte finish. I would describe as a creamy matte finish, so if you are expecting a super matte finish, this isn’t for you. But I think if you apply a thin layer of this you can accomplish a super matte look. Since the consistency is a mousse/whipped texture it isn’t going to dry down completely matte because it is a teeny thick consistency. But I love people. This is the color Exhibitionist. The color is so pretty.

photogrid_1478802783376

Full-On lip Polish – This lip gloss is such a pretty fuschia color in the name Jennifer. It’s very pretty for everyday if you are one of those people who doesn’t like to wear pink lip gloss. This gloss gives you a nice plump lip, very glossy finish, a little sticky which I don’t mind and it wears off through-out the day, what gloss doesn’t?

photogrid_1478802811030

Full-on lip cream – This gloss in Pink Lady is my favorite color and I wear it every single day. It reminds me of my Urban Decay gloss in the color Walk of shame. I really want to try Buxom White Russian, I’ve heard a lot of good things about that color. Back to Pink Lady, this gloss has no shimmer which I love because shimmer on gloss can get annoying sometimes. This gloss has a mint scent to it, (it does plump) your lips.

photogrid_1478802843668

Divine Goddess Luminizer – This is such a very subtle luminizer. Out of all the others I’ve tried, I love this one. It is a nice texture, not super shimmery like the others I have tried. I love to mix this in with my foundations to have a nice glow. Sometimes I love to add it on the top of my cheekbones instead of all over the face mixed with my foundation. The formula makes it easy to blend and take off.

If you would love to see a comparison on this with the Becca shimmering skin perfector let me know. I hope you all enjoyed this post.

Remember to always live yourself and be confident.
