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!!

Your Lash Bar Review

Your Lash Bar: Full review. Friends lets jump in!

As part of my goals I set for myself each month, I usually have one that is about getting dressed and accessorizing and in general putting myself together more often/better, even if I don’t leave the house. So as part of that, that means putting my face together. I always look for new lashes and I have some that are absolutely amazing and love but that doesn’t mean I don’t continue to look for others for my collection. I have decided to try out this brand Your Lash Bar which I found on instagram.

They are super affordable: 3 for 15$ or 5 for 25$ or 6$ each. IMG_2397I picked up these 3 styles. Top left is Kamikaze. Top right is Bellini. Bottom is Manhattan. All their lashes are named after drinks, so cute! I also picked up this lash applicator tool, I usually use tweezers which works great but I thought I would give this a try. I love the packaging. The marble with the rose gold lettering and the drink glasses in the letters. All the little details are beautiful.

The lashes are nice quality at such a great price. They are not too heavy and don’t weigh down the eyes, which of course is important. Bellini and Manhattan will definitely be staples in my lash rotation. Kamikaze will probably be more for special looks and photos because of how over the top they are.

Overall these lashes are a total hit! Give them a try and let me know what you think!

With the help of some fabulous twitter friends I have some great Ideas for what to right about! So if you are new to blogtober, like me, let me introduce you. I will be writing some of my normal posts like monthly goals and a few reviews but I will also post some fall outfits, makeup looks, decor, recipes, and of course Halloween looks!

Even though it is still 90 degrees here where I live I want to be full on in the spirit of fall! I hope you enjoy and hopefully this will be a great success!

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!

HUSH first time review

Hello friends!! I recently found out about the hush app from a youtuber and I can’t believe I didn’t know about it sooner! There are so many products at amazing prices. I started off purchasing two eyeshadow palettes and a liquid eye liner. I am beyond impressed.

First Item I got was this Aphrodite palette by Bad Habit. You have probably heard about this palette already, and it was sold out for so long but came back in stock recently. This palette is a great dupe for the Huda Beauty eye shadow palette. And comes at a way better price point of only 10$!!! The pigmentation is amazing and will definitely will be a staple, go to palette for me. I hope this brand does a dupe for the newest Huda Beauty palette.

The next palette I got for the colors. I am so ready for fall looks and these colors where just calling my name. The pans are huge and only costs 8$!! The color payoff is really nice for the price. It is not amazing but it is good. IMG_2319Lastly I got this eyeliner as a free gift but I believe it only cost 3 or 4$. I have to say this is probably my new favorite liquid liner. I have been wanting to find one I really love and I think I got it. All without spending 20!! This is by the brand kleancolor and it is waterproof. Best of all I received all the items in 3 days!! Such fast shipping!

Okay guys go check out Hush for some incredible deals and let me know what you try out!

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.

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.

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!
