Wellness Voxbox Review!

unnamed

Hey guys! I wanted to share my Wellness Voxbox that I received in the mail, I got this pro bono to try out these products, but I believe these are all things that you can get at the drugstore! The first little thing I got was a UrgentRx Ache & Relief to Go fast powder in Lemon-Lime, it’s a quick fix that you take anytime you need some asprin. Next, I got a couple things from a new natural brand called Attitude, an all natural carcinogen-free dish liquid, and the Attitude  2-in-1 Shampoo/Body wash. It smelled pretty natural nothing fancy going on there. I also got a Colgate Health Enamel Health mouth wash which I will be getting use out of. I also got an active botanical gel cleanser from Olay which I am actually excited to try, and also a Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer which I think you apply just after you shower and before you dry off! I’ve never heard of this type of product, the lotion is very thin and smells great. Can’t wait to try all the goodies!

Revlon Powder Blushes Pinks & Corals

4 5.5Hey girls! ❤ I wanted to share my new drugstore blush additions, they are the Revlon Powder Blushes in Melon-Drama, Classy Coral, Racey Rose. I was able to find these on sale at the drugstore, and I was a little hesitant to pick these up at full price. The colors looked amazing, and the packaging is nice and sleek which I like. I was happily surprised with these. They apply gorgeously on the skin, very natural looking, and I really love the shade range. I picked up all the pinky-peachy shades, and I’ve been really enjoying them when on the go. They are fairly cheap and come with a brush, which I don’t really use, but overall I’m really liking these little blushes! Totally recommend checking these out from the drugstore!

NYX Honey Dew me Up Serum & Primer Review

unnamed
Hey girls! Hope everyone is doing awesome, I wanted to share the fairly new NYX Honey Dew Me Up Serum & Primer that I have been enjoying lately! It’s been super hot here, and I’ve been craving a lighter, more hydrated face for everyday. I was in passing through a makeup isle and came across this little beauty from NYX! I was immediately intrigued due to the packaging, I love anything gold!! The price tag was a bit steep for NYX at $16, but I had to try it none the less. I have anything with honey in it for the skin, it really helps to moisturize my skin and keep it looking radiant. It has a light serumy texture with tiny little gold flecks! It’s really hydrating on the skin without feeling heavy or sticky, it almost has a watery-gel texture. It’s really nice under makeup, and does help makeup apply more evenly. As far as longevity, it keeps my makeup looking fresh and my skin feeling awesome. Highly recommend!

Maybelline The Brights Eyeshadow Palette

7 89Hey gals! I wanted to a quick more in depth review on the Maybelline The Brights palette! I picked this up at Target a couple weeks ago in the new-in stand, and for some reason I was really drawn to this! I normally don’t wear a lot of brights, nor do I have tons of bright colors in my collection, so I decided to give this a try. There are a few neutrals in there that you could use, the dark shimmery brown and matte black are actually pretty nice. The white, deep purple, lime green and gold shade left a bit to be desired. Although they are still workable and buildable, there are definitely better bright colored palettes out there. I think Wet N’ Wild has some brighter palettes that they come out every ones in a while! Overall, I still do like this, and when I want to incorporate some color I will be reaching for this! ❤

Current Full face PICKS

1Hey 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

Nars Creamy Concealer DUPE from ELF!

IMG_4283 IMG_4281 IMG_4282Hey 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!

New Drugstore Mascara Haul!

IMG_4256 IMG_4258 IMG_4260 IMG_4261

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 the Loreal 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!

Top High End & Drugstore Foundation Picks

IMG_0790IMG_0792

Hey loves! X Sorry for the long wait! I just had a recent move across country and I’m just now starting to get settled. With the move, I was forced to go through my makeup collection and really narrow things down. I’ve decided to do a best of high end and drugstore foundation post! I have a love/hate relationship with foundation, I love it because it gives my skin a flawless look, but putting it on every day is really a chore for me at the moment. I had to opportunity to try out lots of different brands, but I found there are gems that are both high end and can be found in the drugstore. I personally prefer a dewy formula that can be built up but can also be sheered out on more natural days. Top High End Foundation: Dior Airflash Foundation, Chanel Lift Lumiere Firming/Smoothing Foundation, Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, YSL Touche Eclat Foundation, and Shiseido Sheer & Perfect Foundation. Top Drugstore Foundations: Loreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Foundation, Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation, and the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation.

Hi everyone! ❤ I was perusing through the drugstore and stumbled across these beauties!! These are from Wet N’ Wild’s 2014 Limiited Edition Fall Collection, the Color Icon palettes $3.99 and the Megalast Matte Lipsticks $1.99!

The Megalast Matte Lipstick I believe are a new formula and come in rubberized packaging which I like, they remind me of the Bite lipsticks. These lipsticks are a must have. They are super creamy and pigmented and apply smooth and velvety. My favorite had to be the deep red color!  The lip shades: Sweet Cream, Urban Night and Bordeaux Boulevard. Pick these up NOW!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

Hi everyone! 🙂 I found myself, yet again, perusing the drugstore isles to see if there are any new beauty bits that have come out for fall! Lo and behold, the thing that catches my attention is an oldie but goodie. I’ve actually never tried this concealer, so many people have talked about it! I’m a bit picky with concealers, and I had a few already that I’ve been rotating through, but I decided to give it a go. The color match was great, and the formula is smooth with medium overage. I would definitely set this with a light weight powder to make it last. I want to compare this to my Nars Creamy Concealer, but I think I prefer the Nars slightly more. I think overall, this is a great concealer from the drugstore to try!

Hey everyone! ❤ I’ve been in the drugstore hunting for new fall finds, and I stumbled across these little shadows! These are the Covergirl FLamed Out Eyeshadow Pots in Scorching Cocoa and Melted Caramel, and have been out for a but I think. I finally caved and decided to give them a go after passing them a few times. Covergirl has been one of those brands I don’t gravitate towards much, I prefer L’Oreal and Revlon for sure, but these spoke to me. They were just under $5 each, and came in 12 different shades. I was a little worried about quality but for the price these performed pretty well. These are great for on the go and travel for a mono look! Have you tried these?

Hi everyone! ❤ I wanted to share some new lippies I picked up yesterday! They are the Flower Kiss Stick High-Shine Lipstick luxury Lipsticks. I am a HUGE fan of these lipsticks. Love the formula, packaging, price and scent.  For drugstore, these are great quality and look really nice on my vanity. 🙂 These are really hydrating and glossy on the lips with intense pigment. The scent is slightly floral but nothing over powering, and I love how creamy and smooth they apply. The line was originally created by Drew Barrymore and what’s unique about the brand is that it is cruelty free, made in the USA, and formulated with high end ingredients. They are able to offer such great products for a low price because they take pride in not doing any paid advertising. I got: Apricot Blossom, Baby Buttercup and Berry Bloom.

Covergirl XL Nail Gel Nail Polish in Rotund Raspberry

1 copy 2 copy 3 copy
Hello gals! ❤ I wanted to share a new nail polish I discovered in the beauty isle, it is the Covergirl XL Gel Nail Polish in Rotund Raspberry. It was only a few bucks, and what stood out to be immediately was the bottle. It’s huge! The next thin I noticed that it was a gel formula. It doesn’t require a UV lamp or curing, but it’s supposed to have the long lasting and chip free formula that gel polishes have! The color is gorgeous, perfect for fall. The formula is super thick but super opaque. You’ll only need one coat of this to get great coverage and shine. I would still apply and base and top coat jsut in case, but this is supposed to last for 7 days which is amazing! It did take a little bit longer to dry, but the finished product was amazing! Highly recommend!
