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!

July Hits and Misses

I know I say it every month and I will probably continue to say it but WHEH! This month flew by!! It seems like the older you get the quicker the time flies by. So I do not have near as much as last month. In June I had purchased lots of products and tested them out. This month I have a few but not near as many. Okay so let’s jump in!Screen Shot 2017-08-02 at 9.38.31 AM

  1. Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask- Lately my lips have been getting so chapped between the heat and the excessive testing of lip products. This is the one product that is truly amazing! I put it on at night and my lips are super moisturized and healed in the morning. This is a must have product for me!
  2. Mont Bleu Nail tools- I was able to test these products out recently and they are truly amazing and stunning. Studded in swarovski crystals they are beautiful to look at and have made a big difference in my nail routine!
  3. Colourpop Fem Rosa collection- OMG colourpop has done it again. Super affordable and beautiful color pay off. The lips are fantastic and the eyeshadows are a creamy dream.
  4. Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser/mask- Last month I told you about a facial cleanser that I didn’t like at all, well this month I found one that I actually enjoy. I love that it doubles as a mask and it keeps my skin really clear.
  5. Munchkin weighted straw sippy cup- Okay so I threw one in for my moms out there. I haven’t added a baby one in a while because well I hadn’t had anything new to try out besides food. But these sippy cups are awesome! Because of the straw and the way everything attaches there are no leaks!!

For the misses this month I only have 2.

  1. Take and Toss sippy cups- These bad boys work… but they leak so badly!! Only put water in them if you decide to use them.
  2. E.L.F. toner- This toner was nothing special.. didn’t really do much for my skin so I don’t think it would be a repurchase.

That’s it for this month! Let me know what you loved and didn’t in the comments so I can try some new things out!!!

Fem Rosa Karrueche X Colourpop

I was going to be giving my thoughts on the new items from Maybelline but since I live in a small southern town we get everything super late so I am still waiting on some local stores to get the complete collection. So in the mean time I purchased the Fem Rosa collection and wanted to share its beauty! First off the packaging was so beautiful with the roses and the rose gold lettering. IMG_0137

Colourpop is known for its bomb products at super affordable prices. The palette retails for 16$ and has 12 shades. 8 Shimmer/satin and 4 matte. It is truly beautiful and has amazing color pay off. They are all in shades of pink, purple, plums, and rose golds. I love them!IMG_0139Next I got 2 lip shades from the collection in the colors Darling and MRS. They have great color pay off and are a satin finish. They are also currently doing a buy two lippies get one free, so for my free lip I got a ultra metallic lip in the shade kween. I am so excited to try this out because it is my first metallic lip!

Lastly I love that coloupop leaves little notes in their packages. Makes the whole experience extra special. I am also super excited that they are expanding their product line and will soon be carrying brushes and concealers. I will definitely let you know what my thoughts are on those!IMG_0142

till next time loves!

Summer Beautycon Box 2017

I went away for a long weekend with the family this past weekend and we just got back yesterday evening. Traveling is so exhausting! But I came home to my beautycon box which is always exciting!!

I filmed my unboxing so check it out HERE if you are interested in seeing that. If not continue reading to find out what was inside. image1(3)

What I received:

  • Colourpop Cosmetics- Ultra Satin Lip in London Fog
  • Deco Miami- Lemon Blossom Cuticle Oil
  • Deco Miami- Beautycon Pink Glass Nail File
  • Dirty little Secret Cosmetics- Gold Plated Eyeshadow Crayon
  • Doucce- Lush Lip Gloss in Glistening Petals
  • Feel Beauty- Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sheet Masks
  • Freeman Beauty- Renewing Cucumber Peel-off Mask
  • Jonteblu- Electric Blue Eyeliner Pencil
  • MakeupDrop x Beautycon- The Original Silicone Makeup Applicator
  • Manna Kadar Beauty- Flutter Mascara in Jet Black

I am very excited to try out the lip products and the eye liner and the masks! I am honestly kinda on the fence about how I feel about the box this season. I love a lot of the products but as far as the nail products go I am just not excited at all about them. I rarely paint my nails, maybe once a month. I think maybe what is throwing me off about this box is how small the products are where as the past few boxes I received larger products which make you feel like you are getting more.

Of course I will update you on products I like and didn’t as I try them out this month!!

What do  you guys think or what products are you loving?
