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!

Lexie Hair Co. Review

Happy Thursday Friends! I’m throwing in an extra post this week because I tested out a new product I received as PR and I truly loved it. I was asked to review a pair of lashes from a start up company, knowing I am going to give a 100% honest opinion. And honestly everyone should go out and get a pair asap! Check her out on twitter @lexiehairco and her website http://www.lexiehairco.com IMG_2216I received the style Jamie. They are super full, lightweight and just beyond beautiful. They came in a hard plastic case, which is great because I am always traveling somewhere. The lashes went on super easy and honestly didn’t feel like I was wearing lashes except for the length. They are amazing quality.

Company Bio: Lexie Hair Co is a Memphis, Tn based company run by Alexis. She started the company because she loves beauty and especially Lashes! She went from having a dream of having her own lash line to doing it all in a matter of a year! They aim to make everyone feel complete with the best quality set of mink lashes. Blinking with the best of them in the makeup world.

For the month of September you can save 15% with code “dayone” so definitely give them a try and see for your self. You won’t regret it!!IMG_2209

  • lashes- lexie hair co -Jame
  • lips- urban decay- liner is 69 and lipstick is f-bomb

As always I am 100% honest. I am making no money from the discount code nor was I paid for my opinion.

August Favorites!

I am sorry this is going up so late! It was a long weekend spent away with the family and friends. I thought about working on posts and pictures and homework and I decided that I deserved a little break, so I took one!Screen Shot 2017-09-05 at 9.17.39 AM

Let’s jump into these favs I had for the month!!

  1. Models Own Foundation- Go check out my review on this foundation. It is great and sometimes I even mix in some moisturizer to make it a little thinner for quick trips to get groceries when I don’t want a full face.
  2. Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara- I rediscovered my love for this mascara. It is amazing and the brush is super full and thick. I love it!
  3. Tarte- Rainforest of the sea vol. 2- I normally don’t go crazy over tarte but this palette is perfect for travel. It creates a perfect neutral look and is such cute packaging.
  4. Victoria Secret Pink Backpack- These backpacks are not only so freaking adorable but are perfect for everything. I don’t go to a physical school, I go online, but I have my backpack for keeping everything all in one place. Especially for blogging! I have lots of notebooks and pens and stickynotes so I never forget a thing!!

Okay so I didn’t have a ton this month. We did a lot of traveling, guests over, and events which didn’t leave tons of time for shopping and testing. But I’ll be back at it. There are so many great products coming out. Plus the closer we get to the holidays, it’ll only get better and better!

Till next time loves!

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!

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
