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.

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.

I’m not very picky when it comes to makeup, I will try anything. Lately I’ve been on the hunt for a new foundation, (like always) and a new poreless primer. I’ve been using the it cosmetics bye bye pores pressed powder and I didn’t end up liking it for my pores because it didn’t cover enough but it did make the rest of skin look more alive, (anti-Aging as well) I thought I liked it but I noticed that it started to wear off even with my setting spray on which was so annoying. I went to target recently and saw this pore primer and I thought I would try it out since the packaging said it was new. Also I decided to try the foundation as well. So here is my little review on this. I also would love it if you let me know what e.l.f products you love and recommend.

Ok, I’m in love with this pore primer and I’m so glad I purchased it. This works as good as the Porefessional by Benefit. I love the porefessional but it was too expensive. This e.l.f. pore primer is super affordable compared to others. This also smells like Vicks vapor rub which I don’t really mind it but its not super strong like the Vicks, I promise. Once you apply it the smell wears off and its also a very smooth, soft texture. This lasted on my skin all day, even through my workout. This really does its job. I purchased mine at Target which I couldn’t find a link, but I did find it in the e.l.f. website.

When I first pumped this foundation, it automatically reminded me of my BareMinerals BareSkin foundation. Its very light-weight and liquid-y, it is a serum after all. This foundation is light to medium coverage but very buildable. This did last on my skin all day even through the warm days we’ve been having here in San Francisco. I really love this foundation for my casual days, running errands and don’t want a lot of coverage. I have combination skin and this really absorbed well on my skin and didn’t flake on my T-zone area and around my nose and I love using it with my real techniques blending sponge, but I do recommend using a setting powder for this foundation under your eyes if you don’t like to wear concealer. You can find it here. I’m in the shade fair/light.

No doubt, this is my all time, number one favorite bronzer EVER! Wet n wild did amazing with this product. I’ve re-purchased this bronzer so many times, I always go back to it. I love how warm it makes my skin look. It really does look like I’ve been out in the sun all day. This is a nice warm looking bronzer and it does not make you look orange, just tanned. Its very natural looking and this is why I love it. I purchased mine at target like always. I love the smell of this bronzer, don’t know why but I do. If you love that natural bronzed look, I highly recommend this to anyone. This is in the color Ticket to Brazil.

Current faves/Review

20151215_132939

Hello lovely souls. Today I want to share some of my current faves because I won’t be doing a monthly favorites this month only because I haven’t bought stuff for myself recently. Everything you see is from ulta.com minus the elf foundation. I’ve only been buying Christmas gifts for people. But, I did buy some clothes and now I’m so ready to post some outfit posts. So as always, I will be giving details about how these items have been working for me and they are all positive so that’s a good thing, right? Let me know down below what you’ve been loving and if you recommend anything as well. Thank you for reading. Stay Cozy.

e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation. (Porcelain)

My sister recommended me this foundation and I love it so much. It’s very lightweight and that’s what I always look for in a foundation, I hate heavy foundations. For me it lasts long everywhere in my face but, my nose which I don’t mind because that’s where I’m most oily and I have my powder for touch-UPS at all times. This is medium coverage. I purchased mine at Target for $6.09 which ain’t bad at all. You can also get it at their website and I’ve seen some at Old Navy as well.

Ulta Lip Gloss in the color (Spice)

I got this lip gloss for free when I purchased stuff at Ulta.com, they sent me a makeup bag full of travel size goodies and samples. I didn’t think I was going to love this lip gloss but, OMG! Its my new favorite, sorry to my BareMinerals lip gloss, Ha. It’s a nice pink color with a mauve twist, if that makes any sense and it has specs of gold glitter which ain’t that noticeable when on but it does give you a nice glossy look. I couldn’t find it in the website to provide a link for you, I’m sure you can find it in stores. This lip gloss smells like my birthday cake candle, very vanilla-y and it’s not sticky which I love.

Pür minerals

Sorry again, I couldn’t find a link to this, I ordered this at Ulta.com but I believe it was limited time only. Hopefully you guys can get your hands on it because it’s a really good palette and I love it. I love all the colors it provides. The highlights, blushes and bronzer are gorgeous, they have good pigmentation and are very buttery and soft. I’m very obsessed with the blush Marvelous and Unreal highlight.

Urban Decay all nighter makeup setting spray.

I love this spray, it’s my all time holy grail item. I love to spray this before and after my makeup. I ordered this at Ulta.com it was a twin pack and I believe it was limited time only but you can buy individually. You can also buy it at Sephora.

Real techniques complexion sponge.

I bought this at ulta.com in a set for $10. I love this sponge. Its very soft and I love the slanted edge so I can get my under-eye area. I love better than the beauty blender.

Batiste dry shampoo

So I’ve heard a lot of good things about this dry shampoo on youtube and girls seem to love this so I thought I would give it a try finally. When I saw this at Marshalls I had to get it, I mean for five dollars when at my grocery they sell it for $8 I believe. I love this product but next time I will be getting the brunette version because they have them now, even for blondes. You can purchase this at Ulta, affordable at target as well. I also want to share a before and after photo of my second day hair. I really recommend this, I really want to try others as well.

This really did absorb the oil off my hair.

Vitabath body wash

I received this in my free goodie bag from ulta and this smells so good. Its cucumber and white tea and it smells so fresh, reminds me of spring for some reason. I need to see if they have it in full size because I want more. Its sulfate and baraben free which I love.
