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!

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!
