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!

Too Faced Everything Nice Holiday 2014 Palette

IMG_0818 IMG_0819IMG_0820IMG_0821IMG_0822IMG_0823IMG_0825

Hey lovelies! ❤ I just got my Too Faced Everything Nice Palette in the mail today! I’m so happy about it since I missed out on the big holiday palette they did last year, and I have to say, this is a real bang for your buck. It comes with a sparkly pink makeup case, 1 mini Better Than Sex Mascara, 3 mini brushes, 20 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, 1 highlighter, and 1 bronzer. This is a mega palette, and if you are planning on traveling anywhere, this would be an end all be all palette to bring with a couple other items. The eyeshadows are pretty good, love the color selection, and of course the bronzer and blushes are gorgeous. You are getting the chocolate soleil bronzer in here so the entire palette smells like chocolate! The little brushes are a nice extra, they could come in handy if you are in a pinch, overall I really like this palette, love the packaging, and can’t wait to use it more! This would make a great gift for the holidays!

Available for $56 at Sephora.

Anastasia Tamanna Palette Review & Swatches!

7856

Hey everyone! ❤ I finally wanted to show you a guys a new eyeshadow palette I have been seriously loving. It’s the Anastasia Tamanna palette $29. It’ s a great value and i love the packaging. Anastasia shadows have been getting a great rep lately due to some of their other palettes, this is in particular really stood out to me. ‘The perfect fall and holiday palette designed in collaboration with makeup artist Tamanna Roashan’ I loved the warmth of the shades and the variety of shimmer and mattes. I especially love the Bengal shade, and the black in the palette is very dark and opaque which I love using as a powder liner. It also comes with a pretty nice dual ended brush, and it’s actually usable! The swatches above are done without primer, so you can see that they’re very pigmented and smooth! Definitely worth checking out for the holidays.

Georgio Armani Si Perfume Review!

21
Hi everyone! 😀 I wanted to review my current all time favorite perfume for you all. It’s the Georgio Armani Si Perfume. I absolutely love this perfume. It’s modern, feminine, floral, has a slight woodsy depth, and has a hint of warm sweetness. I would put it in the same scent family as the Chanel Mademoiselle and the Miss Dior perfumes, which are my other favorites. ‘Si is a tribute to modern femininity, an irresistible combination of grace, strength, and independent spirit. A modern chypre reinvented, Si opens with deep blackcurrant nectar that softly recedes to airy florals. A base of musky blond wood adds lightness while grounding the fragrance for a lingering, distinctive trail.’ Notes:  Chypre, Blackcurrant Nectar, Airy Florals, Musky Blond Wood. I purchased mine at Sephora, they offer two sizes. I totally recommend this for the holidays especially in fall/winter. It’s an all around lovely perfume.

Hi everyone! ❤  I wanted to share I new item I put together at Sephora. I’ve walked passed the stall so many times because at first I wasn’t crazy about the packaging, but after a took a closer look, I decided to finally go for it. Urban Decay offers a build your own eyeshadow palette + 1 single shadow (Moonflower) for $18. On sale now for $12. The single shadows are $18, and you can pop them out of the packaging and place them in your palette! Overall, I think this is a really cute idea, I just wished the single shadows weren’t so expensive. They are great quality, and totally worth it, but I wish there were pan version for the palettes that were a bit less expensive. The eyeshadows swatch beautifully and look amazing on the eyes! The shades: YDK, Moonflower, Verve and Lost.

My August Glossybox 2014 Review!

125 (2)4 36879
Hi everyone! ❤ I got my August 2014 Glossybox in the mail, I can’t believe that summer is almost over and fall is right around the corner! Fall is my favorite season, but still! Anyways, finally got the box and I have mixed feelings. Although I’m not disappointed, I don’t really like getting too many shampoo and conditioner samples. Also, although I like Sparitual as a nail brand, the color wasn’t really for me. I did really like the Eyeko eyeliner pen, which I”ve been meaning to try and I’m really impressed! I’ll always get some use out of the day cream, and that fact that it’s firming is nice. The surprise in the box was a little cream highlighter from Krylon, I guess they collaborated with Glossybox for an exclusive sample. I really like it! I like teh fact that it’s a cream, and it’s a very pretty light champagne color. Blended out it looks like a nice, dewy glow. What I got in my box: Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream, Eyeko London Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, Uberliss Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner, SpaRitual Nail Polish, and Kryolan for Glossybox Cream Highlighter.

Lime Crime Coquette Lipstick Review

20140802_181002 copy 20140802_181114 copy 20140802_181131 copy 20140802_181212 copy
Hi everyone! ❤ I wanted to do a review on my favorite Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Coquette. I seriously love this lipstick for many reason. One, can we look at the packaging? Love the fun holographic unicorn and logo on the shiny purple tube. Two, the lipstick itself is amazing. It smells identical to MAC lipsticks, that yummy vanilla scent. Coquette is a highly pigmented, rich, light, peachy nude. ‘Bold. Opaque. Recklessly loaded with pigment. For lips that speak louder than words.’ Lime Crime as a brand has a lot to offer those who like a little bit of excitement and bold impact with their makeup. You guys seriously need to check out this lipstick!

OMG these are gorgeous. I made another *small order with AllCosmeticsWholesale, and after getting one of these beauties in my previous order, I had to have some more in my collection. These are the Becca Jewel Dusts. These are originally a whopping $16.80 each, and for .04 oz of product that is seriously expensive. Luckily, I was able to get them for $8.99 each and 4 of them came in a set which was $12.99. So total I only paid around $5 each for these. They are super sparkly loose pigments with intense sparkle and shine. They can be worn by themselves, or layered on top of other shadows and bases. Here are the shades I got!: Becca Jewel Dust in Feeorin, Luella, Nixie, Erlina, Aspara and Nyx.

Hi everyone! I wanted to review one of my all time favorite product and brand, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. Hourglass is hands down one of my favorite high end brands. This palette is a collection of 3 of their ambient lighting powders, Iridescent, Dim, and Radiant light, and is free of talc, gluten, fragrance, and nano particles. Amazing! The packaging is gorgeous, super sleek and luxurious feeling. It has a mirror on the inside and the powders themselves are amazing, they are super finely milled and give a soft focus effect on the skin. There is no glitter or shimmer in these, just super soft and magically blurs.

Loreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick Review!

This post has been a long time coming, but I wanted to show you guys the Loreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipsticks! These little beauties have been on sale a lot recently, they come in a bunch of colors and really cute gold packaging! They are usually around $9, but I have seen them on clearance for around $3, the formula is super comfortable, light weight, and glossy. I really like these for on the go days when I don’t want to bother with lipstick. You do have to re-apply throughout the day if you want to keep the color on your lips, but overall, a couple of these in your collection is warranted. The shades: Merino Mauve, Sunset Angora, and Fiery Veil.
