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.

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!!

YSL Vinyl Lip Cream Stain Review

Hello Friends! I can not believe I forgot to post yesterday!!!! OMG, I was doing so good. Oh well no use crying over spilled milk. Any ways I mentioned before that I won a contest on twitter and I received two YSL Vinyl Lip Cream Stains. I wanted to share my thoughts on them!

My swatches aren’t amazing but the left is shade 403- Rose Happening and the right is 402- Rouge Remix. I am utterly obsessed with these lip vinyls. They are incredibly creamy and smooth, leaving your lips feeling super soft. They also stain the lip leaving a lasting color all day. They layer over other lip colors very well also. So if you aren’t a huge fan of how liquid matte lipsticks can leave your lips feeling, these will soften them up!

Overall I would definitely say these are amazing and definitely approved. The only set back is that they are 36$ each… Super steep for a lip color but the formula is awesome. Something I would have never purchased myself if I didn’t win it. But now I want them all!!

ABH Prism Palette

I dunno about y’all but I am living for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette. It is so unique and pretty!!! What do you all think? Is it worth 42$ I have seen some videos where the quality is way up from the subculture blow up. I am just living for the unique colors.                                                                               Screen Shot 2017-10-10 at 3.51.06 PM

I secretly am hoping that Bad Habit will make a dupe for it so that I don’t have to spend 42$ but who knows maybe I will break down and buy it??

Perfect Fall Lip Color

Happy Sunday! For today’s post I am talking about a lip color combination that I did for a picture the other day and I have become obsessed with it!

So from my ELF haul I had purchased some liquid lip colors that I wouldn’t normally purchase but I wanted to try something different and more fall. So I first put on the liquid lip color in the shade coffee. It is a pretty brown shade with a touch of orange. To make it a bit more wearable for myself I added a bit of the YSL vinyl cream lip stain in the shade 402 rouge remix. I used a lip brush as to not mix the coffee color into the ysl. IMG_2509

The YSL lip color is more expensive and high end which you can mix up with whatever color you like. I actually won two shades from a giveaway on twitter which is so exciting! I never win anything.                            Screen Shot 2017-10-07 at 12.29.42 PM

Overall I really love the way this color turned out. What are your favorite fall lip colors?? Let me know in the comments!

Cat’s Pajamas Palette…

Hey friends! Happy Saturday! So for todays post I wanted to see what everyone was thinking about Laura Lee’s Cat’s Pajamas eye shadow palette. When I first saw her swatch and talk about the palette I have to admit I was super underwhelmed. It is a pretty palette but the black doesn’t seem to be very pitch black and even though I die for a fantastic cranberry and gold eye shadow shades.. I just don’t think the palette is worth 40$.                                                   IMG_2499 The packaging is beautiful but it doesn’t seem to all match with the flowers and glitter to me. I also don’t think there is a great mixture of matte colors in the palette. IMG_2500 Who ever swatched this did make the black look better than Laura did in her video but I am still super unsure. I also understand that it comes down to 4$ an eyeshadow but I can’t get over the fact that I can get the Morphe 35F palette with very similar shades, 35 colors, and only a price of 23$..

I can’t wait to see what people do with the palette and what they think. Let me know in the comments if you are going to purchase and what you think about her palette!!!
