April 2018 Boxycharm: Eye Candy!

It is that time of the month again… Boxycharm Unboxing day!!!! This months theme is Eye Candy and boy oh boy was this a great box! So let’s dive on in!IMG_5005

This month I got the Element Of Surprise eyeshadow palette by Colourpop retailing for 16$. The colors are so gorgeous in this palette. I love the shimmers and the bold, bright pink is the perfect pop of color that you don’t find in a ton of palettes.IMG_5010

Next I received a MAC cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick in the shade Burnt Violet- 21$. I have to say even though I really wanted this lipstick over the liquid highlighter which was another option that was sent, I don’t think it goes with the theme very well. It doesn’t look like a color for spring or look candy-ish. I still love it though!IMG_5011

Up next I received the Pores no more Vacuum Cleaner by Dr. Brandt- 47$. I love Dr. Brandt products, they always work so well and leave my skin feeling so soft and super clean!IMG_5012

Next out of the box comes The BrowGal – The Instatint: tinted eyebrow gel 22$. This particular eyebrow gel contains little hairs which not only help to tint your eyebrows but also fill them in as well.IMG_5014

Lastly I got two eyeshadow brushes by SL Miss Glam 38.50$. They are so soft and look super cute with the jewel detail. The duo comes with a blender brush and a brush perfect for packing on color. IMG_5013That’s it for this month! I already can’t wait for next months box!

It’s been a while since I’ve done an updated beauty favorites so here we go! Please let me know in the comments what you are loving. I love knowing what everyone is using and maybe I will find my next beauty favorite!

First up I have to mention Saturday Skin. I will not go into too much detail because I have a dedicated post to them which you can find Here:Saturday Skin- Changed My Life! IMG_4315Next item has been all over blogs and youtube and that is the Maybelline 24H foundation. I found this to give great coverage, it was super smooth, and lasted all day while playing outside with my Son. Two thumbs up from this girl!

Coulorpop has always killed the game with super affordable products and I picked up some more recently for my collection. I love these lippie stix. They are very creamy and have amazing pigment. I also picked up a lipstick and it was Amazing! I can’t get enough! Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.51.16 PM

I recently picked up a new eyeliner and was so blown away by how good it was.. It was covergirl!! This totally shook me because it seems as though lately covergirl has just not been keeping up with trends or product or even packaging. It’s something I just pass by especially when you have brands like colourpop making bomb products at great prices. But after trying this eyeliner I may have to take a second look. I purchased a matte black and it doesn’t transfer or smudge. It is perfect.Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.52.19 PM

Last up is lashes. I am obsessed with a great pair of lashes but when you wear them all the time you appreciate finding affordable lashes. I got this set from Your Lash Bar and they are fantastic. They are 3D faux mink and so fluttery and soft. I have many pairs from YLB and not all are super amazing. But I definitely reccommend the 3D faux Mink. I have the styles Side Car, Lemon Drop, and Appletini. ( From top to bottom)Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.52.32 PM

That is it for today love bugs! I have lots more ideas coming to you soon!!

Cute AF Collaboration

My fellow blogger and twitter friend, Kyles, reached out to me to do a collaboration. Now saying that we don’t live in the same city or state for that matter we had to get a little creative. So we chose a palette we both have and created looks. The palette we used was the Colourpop cute AF palette which is a super warm palette. Don’t forget to go check out and follow Kyles to see what she created!! you can find her : BLOG and TwitterIMG_3406 For this look I created I wanted something a little more simple than some of the looks I create because I had a ton of errands to run and had to take the baby to his checkup.

Out of the palette I layered and smoked colors over the lid starting with the lightest colors in the palette then gradually adding in darker colors but focusing them more on the outer corner. I used every matte shade except the yellow. Then to add a touch of shimmer and blend everything together I added the gold/orange shimmer in the bottom row.

I really love this palette but wish it had more dark tones in it. I find it almost a little difficult to create a whole look with the palette, It can be done but just not to what I love personally.

till next time!! Everyone who celebrates have a great Thanks Giving!!!!

Colourpop Review

Lately I have been getting so much new makeup! I love it and I’m not sure where to even start so I will begin with all the colourpop newness that I have. First off I got the “I Think I Love You” palette.                                                Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 7.51.55 AM As you can see this palette is so stunning! It is perfect for creating everyday looks and includes some seriously stunning and pigmented shades. I absolutely live for a deep matte black and a shiny gold. There are great mattes in the palette for a perfect base and all the metallics add the perfect punch to any look! And only 16$ colourpop is a non brainer for the girl on a budget.

Next up I tried out their new brow pencils. Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 8.05.30 AMIt is much like the original ABH auto pencil. Very thin tip with a nice spoolie on the other side. It is very creamy and the product is smooth. I don’t think it will replace my ABH dipbrow any time soon but this is a nice pencil to have!

Lastly my mom gave me this lippie. Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 8.15.41 AM This is an ultra satin lip in the shade “First of All”. It is a rich raspberry shade and I love it! My mom typically only wears nudes so I get really excited when she gets bright colors because I know they will be mine! And this color is awesome, right up my ally.

Alright friends if you haven’t colourpop yet what are you waiting for?? The prices are so affordable and the products are seriously fantastic! A+ from me!!

Models Own First Impression

Hello friends!! Last weekend I had my parents in town and when my mom is around, shopping is a must. So while at Ulta I thought I would try a few new things and today I want to tell you about this foundation from Models Own. This is the first time I have ever tried anything from this brand and I must say I will be back for more!!! There aren’t a ton of shades but I found one that worked so well for me I was impressed!FullSizeRenderIt was so smooth and made my skin look flawless!! I applied it with my Y6 brush from Morphe for a super smooth, flawless application. I also tried out the new concealers from Colourpop and I really liked it! It did such a great job and all for only 6$!!

Also in the picture is a bracelet from Lucky Brand. Love the vintagey look!

Overall these two were all thumbs up!! Definitely recommend trying them out!
