Hey girls! I wanted to show you all some current full face picks that I’ve been using lately! I always try and use a mix of high end and drugstore, and I’ve recently picked up a couple new things I wanted to test out! The Marc Jacobs lipstick in Serverine, Jurlique lip balm, the Bobbi Brown bronzer and the Rimmel Shadow Stick are old favorites, but I wanted to incorporate the newbies in the routine! The Revlon blushes are fairly new to my collection and I’ve ben really enjoying them! I like the color range and the finish of them is quite natural. The Loreal Tinted Skin Illuminator is really neat, it’s a liquid highlighter and tinted moisturizer with SPF mixed into one! I really like it because it give the skin a healthy dewy look without looking too oily or sparkly. Also, if you have dry skin, this would be a great one too! The Rimmel Waterproof Wonderlash Mascara with Argan Oil was an impulse buy, I was intrigued by the argan oil in it, and the blue tube. 🙂 It give really natural feathery lashes, and doesn’t feel heavy at all! My lashes don’t feel dry so I’m guessing that from the argan oil. The Wet N’ Wild Fergie primer is amazing. It’s probably one of my favorites at this point and it was really inexpensive. It makes my eyeshadows stick and lasts ALL day! The ELF HD Concelaer I did a review on, and is a close dupe to the Nars Creamy Concealer. Last but not least, the Maybelline The Brights palette! This is a fun little palette, but a mix of neutrals and brights! This is a good palette for those who want to experiement with brighter colors on the eyes without inveting too much. Some of the pigmentation could be better, but it’s not bad by any means. Anways, thanks for reading guys! X
Hey gals! ❤ I got my Allure Beauty Box in the mail and wanted to share it with you all. I recently wanted to try out one box since I had heard they had a bit of a face lift since their launch, with the promise of better and larger products. I was happy to say that they delivered on that promise! The box itself is better quality, and the samples inside are more deluxe size!! I remember getting on of their first ones and the samples were tiny! This sub is $15/month and comes with a mix of skincare, makeup, nail items and a mini magazine. I was really happy to see something from Avene, it’s a french skincare brand that I’ve actually been enjoying. The Bumble and Bumble hair creme was also a little goodie since I do use a lot of this type of product to tame my hair. Also, the Butter London polish is gorgeous!! ❤ Overall, a good one to try, but with so many other out there, it’s hard not to test them all out!

Hey girls! Super exciting review for you, I finally got to try out the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips! I only picked up two to test out and went for the nudes! I got the shades Midi and Trap, which are the 2 original nude shades. When I first got them, I was over the moon! The packaging was super cute and for only $6 each, I was really excited to get into these. Midi is the lightest nude shade which look great on the lips, super opaque and smooth. Trap is an amazing taupe shade, this is definitely a Kylie Jenner type shade, which I am absolutely loving! The texture of these is super thin and SUPER pigmented. You only need one thin layer to achieve a complete look. They are slightly trying like any matte liquid lipstick, but more comfortable then others. I LOVE these, will be getting more!

Hey girls! ❤ I wanted to share with you my brand new brush set that I got off EBay! These looked really similar to the Tom Ford makeup brush set that I’ve seen around the internet but of course I had no intention of paying $70-100 per brush. 😛 This set was only $23 for all 12 brushes, and they are VERY similar. These are animal hair brushes, so they aren’t vegan unfortunately, but they are incredibly soft. The handles are an acrylic material with gold metal, they don’t feel too heavy, but the bristles themselves are amazing. The set came with 5 face brushes, and 7 eye brushes. I’m absolutely happy with these and can’t wait to test them out! They are also flat on the bottom so you cant stand them up on your vanity if you want to! Jessup is a great brush brand found on Ebay with lots of other dupes from Sigma and other brands, I totally recommend checking them out!

It’s $45/month + shipping, and comes with full-size items! This is my first box, and I am extremely happy with everything I received! I’m somewhat new to this brand, and this is a great way to try out some of their products at a great price. The box itself is gorgeous and I will definitely be keeping it for storing things. I absolutely love everything I got in my box, everything is great quality and feels very high end. I feel incredibly chic having these things on my vanity!

Hey gals! Ok, pt. 2 of my Shopmissa $1 makeup haul! First couple things I picked up are the LA Colors Eye Shadow Pots, I did get 2 matte shades because I heard they were pretty good. The shade vanilla I am obsessed with, it’s the perfect shade to use on your brow bone. Next were the Kleancolor Ms. Chick Blushes, and the Kleancolor Paris Escapes 2-in1 Lip & Cheek Balm. I really like the packaging of both of these, super cute, and the Ms. Chick blushes are actually quite pigmented. Next were the LA Colors Auto Eyeliner, Kleancolor Sugar Paint Eyeliner Powder, and Santee Shimmer Jumbo Eye Pencil. I was really surprised by the eyeliner powder, it’s basically a very pigmented eyeshadow that you can use to line your eyes. I really liked using it with a pencil brush! Also the jumbo eye pencil I am really happy with, it’s retractable which is really nice and convenient and the color is a nice shimmery brown, that I like to use as a base! Last were the Santee 3D Diamond Eye Pencil, and the LA Colors 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow Palettes. These were really nice as well. The palette packaging felt really cheap BUT the shadows themselves performed really well on their own for only being $1! They were very smooth and shimmery, slightly powdery, but I think these would have been even better with a good primer. Overall like everything!

Hey gals! Here is Part 1 of my epic Shopmissa $1 makeup haul!! I’m super excited to be sharing this stuff cause sometime you really don’t need to spend lots of money on an something to have it look great on you. The first section is all my Kleancolor Wet/Dry Baked Eyeshadows that I picked up!! These are amazing domed satin/metallic baked shadows that come in lots of different colors. I’m SUPER happy with these, the swatches above are shown applied wet, but applied over a base or cream shadow, the affect is exactly the same! I’m obsessed with the shades Malt and Toffee, they are a beautiful duochrome. Next are the Kleancolor Spotlight blushes, these come in cute little compacts with a mirror and brush, but I was really impressed by the pigmentation of these. They are a bit powdery, but they almost stain the skin which makes them last a while! Next are the LA Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils, I really like these. I love using these as a base for my eyeshadows, and they work really well with the Kleancolor baked shadows!! Overall super happy with all of these, part 2 coming up next!
Holy guacamole, I just got my Shopmissa haul in the mail today, and unleashed the load that is makeup everywhere. If you guys aren’t familiar with Shopmissa, they have makeup, jewelry and mail things for only $1 each!! I had seen someone do a haul video on Youtube and decided to check it out! They carried brands like ELF, Kleancolor, NickaK, LA Color, Santee and some others that I wasn’t too familiar with, and decided to pick up some things to try out! I will be doing separate posts for each category, since one post would be waaaaay too long, so stay tuned for that! X

Hey gals! HAD to quickly share this amazing dupe I spotted for the Nars Creamy Concealer in Custard $29 I just picked up at Target for only $3!! It’s the ELF HD Lifting Concealer in Light, the color is slighty darker but the color fair might be a bit closer. As far as texture and pigmentation they are VERY similar. Very light and creamy and good coverage. Both are super smooth and melt right into the skin without feeling heavy. I really like this concealer and will be using it for daily makeup application! They both do not crease, and for fraction of the amount that the Nars concealer is (which I do equally love) is an amazing bargin. Check it out!
Hey everyone! I’d been wanting to try out some new mascaras from the drugstore since the ones I’ve been using are almost died out! I decided to go with the Rimmel Argan Oil Wonderlash Waterproof Mascara, Covergirl The Supersizer Mascara, and theLoreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara. All of these had great reviews so far and I wanted to test them out myself. The Rimmel Argan Oil Wonderlash Mascara I was immediately drawn to because of the packaging, and also the promise of nourished lashes. It has a gel-like formula and a nice silicone brush with feathery bristles. The effect is very nice fluttery looking lashes, definitely not drying. Loreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara has a very narrow silicone wand with tiny, tiny bristles, slightly longer on one end. This allowed the brush to give high impact coverage and separation. I would say because with this one, because it has the potential to be a clumper. The Covergirl Supersizer was a surprising find, it has a very narrow wand with small bristles, but the formula allows you to get great definition and length. I find is awesome for bottom lashes and also for nice volumized top lashes. Overall, I recommend all of these, but the Covergirl was definitely my favorite!
