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 Iā€™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!

Wonderland Makeup Test and Review

Hello friends! I am back with another review for you. This time is a collaboration with the UK brand Wonderland. So without further ado let’s jump right in.

Wonderland sent me a primer, two pigments and a mascara. The package was so cute and I wanted to start with the packaging. IMG_3919 I love the simple black and white packaging. It’s clean and sleek and allows you to see what the product is clearly.

Studio Finish Primer. I give this primer a 5 out of 5! It really is one of the best primers I have used. My skin was extremely smooth, pores were all filled, and my foundation went on so perfectly. Even in my normal editing process I didn’t have to touch my skin. I was truly impressed by this primer. My foundation also lasted all day without budging. This is a must try product! https://www.wonderlandmakeup.co.uk/primer/

Next product is the Wonderdust Loose Pigment. I have the colors Pandora (left) and Halo (right). I give these pigments 4.5 out of 5. I will say in my opinion you do need some sort of base or glitter glue to get an intense color pay off. These pigments are packaged so perfectly. They contain a sifter so you do not make a huge mess which is so nice compared to most other pigments I’ve seen on the market. https://www.wonderlandmakeup.co.uk/pigment/

Wonderland Lash Thickening Mascara. 4 out of 5. This mascara is perfect for someone who loves a more natural look. For me it was the perfect mascara to coat my lashes before applying false lashes. I do wish that it gave my lashes more volume and length. It did however separate my lashes and left them without a single clump! This mascara wasn’t out of this world but it was really nice. Just apply more than one coat and you are ready to go!!https://www.wonderlandmakeup.co.uk/mascara/

Here is the look I created using these products. My skin never smoother and I used the blue as a base for the Halo pigment and the mascara coated my lashes of course. I had so much fun trying out these products and I will definetely have to try more!

Empties! Would I Buy Again?

I don’t get to write this post very often because honestly I rarely hit the empty point on many products. Usually I end up buying something new and not finishing what I had before. It is kinda sad, I know..Screen Shot 2017-07-12 at 10.02.20 AM

So let’s jump in!

  1. C. Booth Body Scrub and Cleanser, Walnut Shell– I absolutely love this stuff!! It smells so amazing. I use it mainly as an exfoliater on my legs, thighs, and stomach. It helps to smooth out the skin and helps with texture. Final thoughts- I would absolutely buy this again!
  2. Biore Charcoal Acne Cleanser– As much as i love biore I really didn’t enjoy this cleanser at all. I am surprised that I used it all. It had some sort of minty feeling that really bothered my eyes. I will not be repurchasing but I do love other of their products!
  3. Smashbox Photo Finish Shadow Primer– Even when I use eyeshadow primer every single day it lasts forever!!! I finally hit the end of this primer and I enjoyed every single look i created with this as the base! Totally would buy this again! I don’t know if I can live without it!

Alright guys I am going to try to be more committed to finishing products and hopefully I will be able to continue with this post!

Till next time loves!
