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

That is it for this haul friends! As always leave me what you are loving in the comments so I can check it out!

February Favorites!

Hey Lovely Friends! This month I dove in to some great products and I just have to share. February was a strange month here in the South because it went from being really warm to a little chilly… I do not enjoy this chilly weather. I’m hoping it warms up soon. So I didn’t get out of the house much. Doing your makeup with no place to go is still fun but not clearly as exciting haha!

Even through all this I still managed to find some fabulous products I couldn’t put down and here they are.

  1. Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara. I am Obsessed with this mascara!!!! It is pitch black and leaves my lashes so full and long. It is definitely my go to for those days that I don’t put lashes on. The brush defines my lashes and I really can’t say enough good things. If you haven’t tried it then what are you waiting for???Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.06.59 AMScreen Shot 2018-03-09 at 5.59.27 AM
  2. E.L.F. BB Cream SPF 20. This BB cream adds just the perfect touch of coverage and smooths out any redness. It is very inexpensive and gives spf coverage for the day. The BB cream is super blend-able and creamy. I reach for it everyday!
  3. Bad Habit Beauty “After” eye shadow collection palettes. These palettes are dupes for the Huda Beauty Palettes and OMG they are sooo creamy, pigmented, and build-able. And at only 10$ a pop… I mean come on. Ah-Mazing!
  4. Indian Healing Clay. Only 10$ and this jazz can do so many things! I have been using it for face masks and after only one use my pores were cleaner and smaller and my skin was incredibly silky smooth. It sells out quickly on the Hush app so keep your eyes peeled for it and get your hands on it as soon as you can!Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.28.38 AM
  5. Lastly is not a makeup item but I am obsessed. The Ultimate Classic Jogger from VS Pink. OMG so soft and comfortable. A must have in your wardrobe for lounge days or everyday if you are me!                                             Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.23.57 AM

E.L.F. Newness Review

Alright friends I have tested out many of the new products from E.L.F that I had recently purchased and here are my initial thoughts.

  • Clarifying Charcoal Bubble Mask- I really enjoyed this mask. It did tingle a bit as I let it bubble on my face for about 10 minutes. After rinsing it off my skin was left clean, tight, and smooth. I would definitely recommend it!
  • Lock On Face Primer- I have only used the primer once but.. this primer is very tacky and kind of thick. I like it but it is almost a little difficult to use. When I applied my foundation it went on a little patchy. Not sure this is really a win for me, I’ll have to keep testing out using it.
  • Blending Sponge- This is a little like the beauty blender but when you wet it, it gets huge! I have to give it a few more tries because with that primer it was just a difficult day for foundation. They are super soft tho!
  • Beauty Shield Antioxidant Finishing Powder- I really like this powder. It was super smooth and silky and photographed well. This one is a win!
  • Bronzer- I got the shade light matte. I like this bronzer because you could build it up and it was the perfect cool tone for contouring but also warm enough to warm up the skin a bit.
  • Blush- Shade bright pink. I actually love this color! It looks really nice on the skin and can be built up. Winner!
  • Highlight- Shade Glow. This shade was beautiful but not blinding. It also was much more golden of a highlight than I expected but still very pretty for an everyday glow.
  • Liquid Matte Lipstick- This is the last product I tried out so far and I really loved it. It does require 2 layers to get a super full opaque look. The color I am wearing in the picture is Vampy Violet.

photo1IMG_2384From bottom to top: highlighter, blush, bronzer, liquid matte lipstick in the colors- vampy violet, smokey taupe, coffee(sorry it smeared), lip liner- natural and deep berry.

I have just a few last products to try still but so far things have been pretty great!

30 Days of New New- ELF Cosmetics

Whoa whoa whoa!!! As you guys already know I am obsessed with ELF Cosmetics! They are so affordable and I would say about 90% of the time their products are BOMB!!! If you don’t already know they are currently doing 30 days of new new, as they are calling it. ELF is releasing a new product everyday for the month of September. I sort of have some love hate for this because I want to see everything they are coming out with and I already know I want multiple products and there is no way I am going to put in an order everyday I want something. A little crazy right? Not sure their thinking behind this. And boom. As soon as I say this, they release the whole collection!

Here are a few of the products they have brought out. Of course you can see them all on their website.

So far they have brought out some liquid lipsticks, silicone sponges/blenders, a brush set, highlighters, and bronzers, and much more. It is super exciting and I can’t wait till the end of the month so I just put in a huge order so I’ll upload a haul/review for y’all!!!

Currently still working on lots of Halloween looks. If you have any suggestions for looks you would like to see please leave me comments. Also Let me know in the comments what brands/collections are coming out with new things maybe for holiday!?

Talk to you Friday!

Ulta and Target Haul

I have done a little bit of shopping with my mom in town this past weekend. Here is what I got! IMG_1972First off I’m sorry about the photo quality, my flash wasn’t working properly. Any who! I absolutely love Target, what girl doesn’t? I can’t pass up the 1,3,5$ dollar section in the front of the store which is where I got this super cute note pad for notes and lists. If you know me, you know I love making lists! While at Target I also picked up the elf brow cream which works really great! and it is only 3$! I also picked up the Shea Moisture Mommy stretchmark repair cream and spray oil. I have been testing this out and will let you know how I like it later. Lastly from Target I got the heel genius cream by Soap&Glory.

From Ulta I had a 20% coupon and so I picked up this blue nail polish which will be perfect for my nails for my Son’s birthday party. I also got the Bronze Goddess body oil, picked it up for my honeymoon. Plus I love the smell of bronze Goddess. I got 2 matte liquid lip colors from Rimmel London, a foundation from models own, and a dry brush which I talked about earlier.

I love all my purchases and can’t wait to try the rest of the items I haven’t had the chance to yet!

till next time
