April 2018: Hits and Misses

Can Y’all believe it’s already May!?!?! I can’t and that means in just 25 days I will be on my Honeymoon!! I seriously can not wait and I’m sure that isn’t obvious haha. I have a few posts thought up for honeymoon related things and we are hoping to come back pregnant! Then I will have tons of post ideas ready to go! Okay enough blabbing, let’s jump into what I loved this month.

HITS

  • Herbal Essences Sheer Moisture Cucumber & Green Tea Foam Conditioner. Woof what a mouth full!! Anyways I have been seriously loving this foam conditioner. I thought I would hate it, especially with my long, thick hair. It didn’t leave my hair feeling slick like a normal conditioner but I still was able to get a brush through it and my hair wasn’t ever greasy. I really loved the results and my husband loved the smell.                                                                                                        Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 12.20.16 PM
  • Bad Habit Eyeshadow Palettes. Honestly they are all amazing. So richly pigmented and blend like a dream. And you can not beat the affordability. I would recommend these to anyone wanting amazing color payoff without a hefty price tag or if you just want a bomb palette. I can’t wait to see what else comes from this brand.

  • The Balm Mary Lou Manizer highlighter. Sometimes when you gather and collect makeup like I do you tend to forget about old favorites. I rediscovered this beauty and even put it in a pile to be packed for my honeymoon.Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 12.17.18 PM
  • Lastly I have be Obsessed with the BH Cosmetics Festival palette. I know I’ve talked about this before but the colors and the color payoff are so amazing. Such a great palette!                                                                                                    IMG_4852

MISSES

  • Just Nutritive Self Tanner. Let me start off saying this is not a total miss. I actually love how easy this is to use and the color that develops. But because it goes on clear you can not see what areas you have missed which leaves it streaky. Also I waited hours after applying to allow dry time and after putting my watch back on even a day later, I have a white strap around my wrist from the watch.
  • Spiral Twisters.. I just don’t understand how these work for girls with straight hair. Maybe because my hair is very thick and heavy they don’t work? My best friend loves them but I find that they just stretch out and my hair slips out of the pony tail very quickly.

 

That’s it for today! Leave me comments about what you are loving!

Ulta Haul!!

I have been going a little crazy shopping lately.. my excuse is my birthday. That works right? Anyways if you haven’t seen my SheIn haul check it out here What I’m Packing For a Caribbean Honeymoon. I got tons of great stuff for so little money! But now it’s time to jump in to what I got at Ulta!IMG_4847

First I had to get my hands on the BH Weekend Festival Palette ( 18$ ). It has 20 vibrant and insanely pigment rich colors. I do wish it had one matte light pale color to use as a base but other than that there are so many looks to be made!! I can’t wait to dive in to it! IMG_4852Next up I got a kit from Lorac called the Sun Kissed Glow Collection ( 34$ ). It includes a bronzer, blush, and highlighter. I thought this was an amazing deal. I really love Lorac’s products. I feel like they don’t get enough recognition but I own practically the whole collection.. Just so good!!! IMG_4850IMG_4851

I picked up some Ardell Items because they were on sale and I can always use spare lashes and glue. So I got a duo pack of wispies and the Duo brush-on dark adhesive ( both were 3.59$ ). They always look good, stay all day, and don’t look too crazy.

I lastly picked up two items based on Youtuber recommendations. I got the essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder ( 4.99$ ) and the NYX Pigment Primer ( 6.49$ ). I will let you know what I think. So far I have tried the brighten powder and I do enjoy it.

So I did get a free gift with spending so much which was awesome. It was a makeup bag filled with lipsticks! I got to choose from nudes or bright colors and of course I chose bright! IMG_4849From left to right I have a lipstick queen, nyx velvet matte, e.l.f., maybelline superstay matte, makeup revolution, and models own. And below are swatches in the same order from the bottom.IMG_4848
