Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Review

Hey everyone! How is your week going? I purchased this little baby around Christmas time and finally got around to testing it out. I have to say after all the reviews I had heard, I expected to be beyond obsessed with it. And for 39$… I kinda expected it to shave weight off my cheeks as well.

Well… I was unimpressed. So underwhelmed. It does work so don’t get me wrong, it isn’t a total flop. But I definitely will choose one of my trusty foundation brushes any day of the week! I felt as though I needed to smooth out my foundation after applying it with the clarisonic because of tiny little streaks.

Overall I would suggest saving your money and getting a great foundation brush which you can easily find much cheaper than the 40$ price tag of the brush head for the clarisonic.. Oh did I not mention that if you don’t already have a clarisonic you can tag another 100$ at least on to the price tag.

Till next time loves!

April 2018 Boxycharm: Eye Candy!

It is that time of the month again… Boxycharm Unboxing day!!!! This months theme is Eye Candy and boy oh boy was this a great box! So let’s dive on in!IMG_5005

This month I got the Element Of Surprise eyeshadow palette by Colourpop retailing for 16$. The colors are so gorgeous in this palette. I love the shimmers and the bold, bright pink is the perfect pop of color that you don’t find in a ton of palettes.IMG_5010

Next I received a MAC cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick in the shade Burnt Violet- 21$. I have to say even though I really wanted this lipstick over the liquid highlighter which was another option that was sent, I don’t think it goes with the theme very well. It doesn’t look like a color for spring or look candy-ish. I still love it though!IMG_5011

Up next I received the Pores no more Vacuum Cleaner by Dr. Brandt- 47$. I love Dr. Brandt products, they always work so well and leave my skin feeling so soft and super clean!IMG_5012

Next out of the box comes The BrowGal – The Instatint: tinted eyebrow gel 22$. This particular eyebrow gel contains little hairs which not only help to tint your eyebrows but also fill them in as well.IMG_5014

Lastly I got two eyeshadow brushes by SL Miss Glam 38.50$. They are so soft and look super cute with the jewel detail. The duo comes with a blender brush and a brush perfect for packing on color. IMG_5013That’s it for this month! I already can’t wait for next months box!

Personalized Cart Review

Hey Friends!!! Today I’m reviewing something a little different on my blog. Personalized Cart is a website that is perfect for finding gifts that can be personalized for all occasions or get yourself something! Click the banner to check things out!                   Personalized Cart

I chose this beautiful watch box for myself and had it personalized with my initials.Facetune_27-03-2018-07-14-49 This particular style I chose has a pull out drawer on the bottom and the top flips up where you can store 4 watches. I love how this turned out, I wasn’t sure what to expect because the prices were so inexpensive. But the watch boxes are constructed well and I love the distressed look the wood has. Facetune_27-03-2018-07-14-08

 

The top has 4 small pillows to put your watches around to be stored and displayed properly. I also love that I have somewhere to put my phone and glasses at night as well. I keep mine on my nightstand and I really love the look of it. My husband wants to steal it but I kindly remind him that my name is on it.

 

 

Facetune_27-03-2018-07-15-24 Personalized Cart is perfect for groomsman’s gifts, new moms and dads, and everything in between. I can’t speak to the quality of every product but if they are on par with this watch box then they should be pretty good!!

Till Next Time,

March Boxy Charm!!

You have to know by now that this is my favorite day of the month. I mean, makeup has been delivered to my door!!! This months box was good and I’m so excited about it. From the sneak peeks I saw I couldn’t wait to get my fingers on the goodies.IMG_4243

So let’s jump in to the Bae-cation boxy charm box.

Let’s start out with the most exciting item which is the Pur cosmetics X Boxycharm eyeshadow palette. It is drop dead gorgeous. The peaches, the mattes, the shimmers, and my favorite summer color- a bright pop of blue. Retails 36$ and you can find it at Ulta or Purcosmetics.com. The colors are stunning and blend like a dream with major color payoff!                                        IMG_4250

Next a Mascara from Bellapierre Cosmetics. MSRP: 20$ This guy promises long lasting, volumizing mascara formulated to help create thicker and fuller lashes. After testing this one, it was a super disappointment. Not a huge deal since I wear false lashes but for the days I don’t… I will not be reaching for this at all.                                         IMG_4249

South Mane Beauty gave us Under Eye Gels for 10$ These make for a great easy mask without the clean up. They soften and moisturize to ensure that you look rested and refreshed.                                                                                              IMG_4246

The Vintage Cosmetic Company gave us a Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set retailing at 23.15$ This brush set trio will enable you to create a stunning smokey eye. The brushes are so soft and who doesn’t love getting new brushes?? I know I’m a total addict. After testing these guys out I do like them for packing on color but probably won’t be my number one go to brushes. Still very nice tho! IMG_4248

I was so excited to get this Blush from Pretty Vulgar. I adore their packaging with the vintage look. I know Boxycharm sent out two shades and even though I didn’t get the shade I was hoping for, the one I got is still really pretty. The blush runs for 26$ The color I received was called Prim Vixen and it is so insanely bright.. Must go in with the lightest of hand.                                                                     IMG_4247

If you added that up, that is just over 115$ worth of product for only 21$!!!! I love this box so much!!! Definitely sign up while there is no waitlist!

Bad Habit Review- MUST TRY!

Hey friends! I know I have baby fever and I have lots of mommy posts prepped and ready but trust me I have not forgot about beauty and how much I love all things makeup!

If you have been with me a while you know that since becoming a mom I love finding amazing affordable makeup that performs high end but costs drug store. I know some people have expressed how they have a problem with companies making dupes of high end products but I love it, if it is done well. Bad Habit Beauty is a bomb.com company with whom I am obsessed with!!! You can purchase Bad Habit through the Hush app.

Wanna know how much I love Bad Habit?? I have purchased every item they have made!!!! Everything has been amazing quality and such a great option if you can’t afford or don’t want to spend 45$ on a palette. BHB makes dupes for many palettes like many of the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes and Huda Beauty.

IMG_4078

 

To the left is the newest collection from Bad Habit Beauty. It is a great dupe for the Huda Beauty Obsessions eyeshadow palettes which run 27$ a palette. The Bad Habit palettes run 10$ each or bundle all 4 palettes for 30$. It is really amazing that they can get such great quality product and fantastic packaging for such a low price.

 

IMG_4079

The Hush app is a must for any beauty lover. They have so many amazing brands and some other brands I have never heard of, but I can confidently tell you that Bad Habit Beauty is a must!!!!

Next up is Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil. MSRP: 21$  A richly pigmented smokey eye pencil delivers intense jet-black definition. I personally hope this is water proof or has some super stay power or I will look crazy!! IMG_4096

Now we have the Naked Cosmetics Holographic Highlighter Palette. MSRP: 39.99$  Six stunning holographic shades in this highlight palette. Each iridescent shade is perfect for highlighting and layering to transform any look into something enchanting. IMG_4098

I am super excited to do some looks with this COVERFX Shimmer Veil. MSRP: 28$  Multi-use, shimmering creme colors are crease-proof enough for the boldest of eye looks and formulated with a weightless finish for a shimmering effect anywhere on the face. IMG_4095

Lastly in the box is Seraphine Botanicals Sugar + Lemon moisturizing lip buffer. MSRP: 24$  A blend of soft sugar crystals within a rich, nourishing salve base that gently exfoliates and buffs lips. I love a good lip scrub and can’t wait to test this one out!!! IMG_4097
