Wet n Wild: Hemporary Solutions

IMG_7917

Hey loves,

Today for my “Swatch Saturday” post I am going to be sharing something rather colorful! I know, color is something that is rarely on my blog. I’m a neutral kind of gal. However, when I stumbled on this palette (and another, but more on that in a few) some of the colors reminded me of shades I have seen in the Urban Decay Electric palette and in a few Sugarpill palettes. You know, palettes that I lust over but won’t spend the money on because I know I don’t reach for bright colors often. Those palettes.

Well, I have a solution! However, you may want to find these quick, because what I’m about to talk about is limited edition. I can hear you all sighing already. I’m so sorry. I wish limited edition and affordable eyeshadow palettes just weren’t a thing. It’s heartbreaking.

Anyway, this palette is by Wet n Wild, and I found it at my local Kmart. However, Wet n Wild can also be found at Walgreens and CVS. It was $5, and there are 8 shadows in the palette. That is essentially 62 cents per shadow, hell yes. There are 6 matte shades and 2 shimmer shades. I like that there are a few shimmery shades, because all matte bright colors can look a bit odd on my eyes, and the shimmer helps to balance that out a bit.

IMG_7917

First thing I noticed is that every single color is bright. Super bright. If you’re someone that likes a warm transition shade, you will definitely need to pull from another palette, or you could possibly mix the white with another shade to create a lighter transition shade.

I only tried this once on my eyes so far, and I will say that even with a primer the pink and red kind of stained my eyelid a bit. Meaning, these are freakin’ intense. The pigmentation on these is superb, and reminds me of the former Wet n Wild quality from a few years ago that I’ve missed oh so much.

As far as I can tell from the few times I have tried this out, the shades are very blendable. They applied smoothly and didn’t look too chalky or drying on my lids. The colors didn’t look muddy and the same on my lids, which is a plus.

IMG_7949

These are swatches of all 8 shades. Are you seeing that yellow and red? I would have paid the money just for those two shades! I have been looking for an affordable and nice yellow for awhile, because I want to go all out when we take my daughters to the Minions movie. Yes, I went there. Mom life. Minion life.

Do I recommend these? Yes. A million times yes. All of the yes in the world. If you see these, snag one of each in the collection, because like I said they won’t be around forever. If you like to play with color sometimes, but don’t want to spend $40+ on a palette to do so, check these out. There are 3 in the collection, and for $15 total you can walk out with 24 different shades to play with. That is a win in my makeup book.

Have you seen these? Have you picked one up, or are you going to? Let me know what your thoughts are! I’m totally going to play around with this palette more, and if I come up with a neat look I will post it! I may even post my minion look.

As always, thanks for reading if you made it this far! I hope you all enjoyed this short and sweet swatch saturday post. I picked up another one of these palettes that I will be posting swatches of soon!

Have a good day, lovelies.

Swatch Saturday: La Girl Creme Lipsticks

la girl luxury creme lipstick

Hey beauties,

I feel like I haven’t done a Swatch Saturday post in ages. Okay, maybe like two weeks, but I really love doing swatch posts! Especially when lipstick is involved. Well, if lipstick is involved, I’m probably down. Today I’m going to be swatching 4 lipsticks that I don’t believe I have talked much about, and that’s the LA Girl creme lipsticks.

Everyone has been so obsessed with liquid and matte lipsticks (myself included) that I wanted to look in my collection and pull out some creamy lipsticks. Matte lipsticks aren’t for everyone, and even though I adore a great matte finish, I do like a nice moisturizing lipstick finish as well.

If you don’t know about LA Girl, they’re a brand that can be bought online at http://www.lagirlusa.com or can sometimes be found in select drugstores and Five Below stores. They are cruelty free, and very affordable.

They sell quite a few lipsticks, including liquid lipsticks, but I don’t see much on their Luxury Creme lipstick line. So, I’m going to swatch and talk about the 4 I have in my collection.

There are 24 shades in all that range from light nudes, red, and a black. I do love the range that LA Girl has in these lipsticks and I feel there is something for just about everyone.

Price: $4

Consistency: These are very creamy and hydrating.

Application: I personally like to apply these straight on the lips and then take a lip brush to evenly apply it the rest of the way. These pair best with lip liners because they are very creamy and therefore a bit slippery. I find that liners help my lipstick to “stick” and not get on my teeth as much. That and liners prevent the weird feathering thing that can happen with non-matte lipsticks.

Finish: As I’ve said possibly a million times, these are not matte, but they’re not too super glossy either. I like that about them. They’re kind of a happy medium, in my opinion.

Pigmentation: With all of the ones I swatched for this post I had no problems with the pigmentation. They went on smoothly and with no patchiness.

Packaging: I’m not a fan of the packaging. The packaging is a bit cheap (okay, very cheap) and a little flimsy. However, I will say that because the product inside is so good I can forgive cheap packaging. I can tell that LA Girl kind of sacrificed nice packaging for a great lipstick, and that’s okay in my book. I can respect that. If you’re a packaging snob (no judgement here, I am myself at times) then the packaging may bug you a bit too much with these.

Staying Power: Because these have a creamy texture and finish, you’re probably gonna have to reapply them throughout the day, especially if you eat and drink with it on.

Β Smell: I found that these don’t really have a smell, which is fine in my book.

Worth a try? In my opinion, yes. I really like LA Girl as a brand, and I think these are nice lipsticks to try out if you want to try pinks or reds, but don’t want to drop a ton of money on a higher end brand. The only things that bug me with these are the packaging because I end up getting lipstick all over the tube every time I apply one. That and if you rip the little sticker off completely you suddenly don’t know the name of the lipstick you’re putting on. That’s also annoying. Other than that, I really love the way these feel on the lips. Because there is shea butter and vitamin e in them they are very hydrating. Perfect to throw in your purse on a nice Spring or Summer day.

Swatches:

la girl amour

Amour: A very “nude” lipstick that looks almost brown on my skin tone. I did conceal my lips before these swatches so I could show you all the true color. I really like this color. It pairs well with “nude truffle” lip liner by Nyx. I know that not everyone is into the brown-nude thing right now, but I am. It’s my way of being “bold” at times without wearing a bright or odd colored lipstick.

IMG_6613

Be Mine: A very brown lipstick with just a tinge of red in it. I know this color can be intimidating for people with fair skin, but I happen to love this color. It has a very “marsala” tone to it, and pairs well with a warm and matte eye look.

IMG_6616

Promise: This is probably my favorite out of the 4 I own. It looks a wee bit different on my lips than it does swatched on my arm. It’s more of a plummy-berry color that’s bold, but not overpowering.

IMG_6617

Last Night: This is a shade I would probably never purchase myself, but I actually got it in my Lip Monthly bag last month. I quite like it now that I’ve tried it on. It’s pretty intimidating inside of the tube, but on the lips it’s a nice deep pink color. Still bright, but wearable if you’re afraid of pinks like I am.

Arm Swatches:

From the wrist down: Last Night, Promise, Be Mine, Armour

That’s it for today’s swatch Saturday post πŸ™‚

Let me know if you all like this style/set up for lip swatches, and feel free to request lip swatches!

As always, thanks for reading, and if you’re new here I hope you decide to follow me or sign up for emails. It’s free and stuff.

Lip Monthly March 2015

Look, a wild subscription bag appears!

I have another Lip Monthly post to share with you all. As always, these are my honest and personal thoughts. I am in no way sponsored or affiliated with Lip Monthly!

lip monthly march

If you don’t know what Lip Monthly is, they’re a fairly new subscription service that’s aimed towards people that love lip products (hey, that’s me!). It’s $10 per month, and typically bags arrive in the middle of the month, closer to the end of the month. Lip Monthly has had some odd moments that I have mentioned before, but they seem to be more consistent now.

I have to give a business props when they listen to their customers and aim to be more consistent. Does that mean they are perfect? No, but I am happy to see their team learning and growing as a business.

This month’s bag was their typical blue bag. Or rather, another bag for my toddler’s collection. Harmony honestly loves when I give her the bags and boxes from my beauty subscriptions. She has her own purse and she puts them all in there with her baby diapers and babies and carries them around with pride.

Anyway, the theme for this month is Spring, obviously. Spring themes and colors tend to annoy me after a bit, but I had a harsh winter physically and emotionally, so I have been welcoming all the colors.

Basically, when I opened this bag it’s like Spring just threw up all over the place. Okay, I’m exaggerating a bit, but this month is very pink…and bright. So, let’s get into what’s actually in the bag this month.

IMG_5437

Hikari Lipstick- $13 I’ve received a Hikari lipstick from Lip Monthly before, and I actually adore the formula of these lipsticks. They’re creamy and have a really nice finish on them that isn’t too glossy, and not too drying. The shade is “Crush” which is a super bright pink. I’m trying to explore my color range a bit and incorporate more pinks, so I may save this one for summer.

Jordana Lip Glaze- $1.99 This product didn’t impress me as much since I can pop into Walgreens and buy this, but it is really nice. I like Jordana lip products, and I haven’t tried any of the lip glazes yet. The smell is wonderful and very fruity. It’s glittery and when I was swatching it on my arm it went on very smoothly and had a sheer, shimmery finish. This will make a nice lipstick topper, or can be worn alone on days when I just need a little color on the go. The shade I got in my bag is “Raspberry.”

JCat Lip Crayon $3.99- The last JCat product Lip Monthly sent out was a total flop, but this one is not. I thought the color was red and my heart skipped a bit, but the outside is a bit deceiving. The color itself is beige with a bit of orange in it. This product is probably the most “me” colored in this bag, and I’m actually excited to try this out alone and with some of my newer glosses on top of it.

Let to right: Hikari "Crush", JCat Lip Pencil "Caramel Mocha," Jordana Lip Glaze "Raspberry."

Let to right: Hikari “Crush”, JCat Lip Pencil “Caramel Mocha,” Jordana Lip Glaze “Raspberry.”


Sally Hansen Nail Polish- $1.99 (Kmart Price)
Once again, this is a brand I can go to Kmart or Walgreens to find. However, this is a very bright and pretty color. The shade is “Mighty Mango” and it’s a very bright coral type of shade. Not one that I will wear on my nails, but it will look cute on my toes this Spring and Summer!

Total Bag Value: $21

Eh, not the best and not the worst. The total bag value wouldn’t bother me as much if there had been different brands other than popular drugstore brands in it.

I’m still on the fence about Lip Monthly as a whole. I want to like them, but at the same time I feel like I’m mostly getting things that I won’t use. I’ve gotten a few gems (like my Magnolia Lipstick and Ofra liquid lipstick) but a lot of items that I don’t use or like.

I would like to see a possible quiz for this subscription to better fit individuals and more of a brand variety, but I also know that they are still relatively new and it takes a bit to build up a brand base that will sell wholesale.

If you have Lip Monthly, what are your thoughts on them? Know of any other beauty subscriptions aimed towards lip product addicts for me to look into?
If there’s anything in particular that you all want to see reviewed, let me know!

Comment down below, I would love to hear from you!

As always, thanks for reading!

Meet Matt(e) Nude

meet matte nude the balm

Hello lovelies,

Today I want you all to Meet Matt(e) Nude! I’m such a sucker for a great nude palette, and if it’s matte there’s about a 85% chance that I will eventually own it. I have wanted this palette for so long, and I finally scored one awhile back when Hautelook when they had The Balm on there in February.

The Balm is probably one of my top 5 favorite higher end brands. Their packaging is always so adorable and vintage, yet it has the slightly sexual undertone with the names etc. much like Too Faced. If I had to describe myself with a makeup brand, it could be this one.

Anyway, as you can see above, the packaging of this palette is so cute, yet very chic. It’s small and compact, and I feel this palette would be great for traveling.

IMG_4408(1)

This is the inside of the palette, and please just take in it’s glory for a second. It’s so rare that I find a nude palette this perfect.

Things that I personally look for in matte palettes:
-a light transition shade
-a white/ivory shade for daytime looks
-a good range of light/medium toned shades for daytime looks
-at least a few darker shades to create smokey eyes and/or take a look from day to night easily

Matt(e) did not fail to deliver in any of the above aspects. That peachy toned shade is the perfect transition shade. I die over it. This palette does not have a black, but the darker shades do work well together. Honestly, I like having a few neutral palettes that don’t have a black shadow.

Second thing I noticed about this palette is the size of the shadows (hence the size matt(e)rs line on the front). They are large pans, so this palette is well worth your investment if you’re looking for a palette that you can use everyday.

But what about the actual shadows? Matt(e) is so dreamy!

Pigmentation:

Decent, given that they are matte shadows and by default can be a bit patchy and dry looking when swatched.

How they blend:
These blend very well! I have dry eyelids, and I didn’t find that these looked patchy on my eyes. The brush didn’t drag when I blended the colors out.
Tip: If you are ever having trouble blending matte shadows because you have dry lids, try putting a translucent powder on top of your primer before applying shadow. This helps to blend shadows easier.

My favorite shades: I’m pretty obsessed with Matt Garcia, Matt Rosen, Matt Singh, and Matt Lombardi. I use these shadows to create so many simple, yet elegant everyday looks when I’m on the go. Matt Singh and Matt Lombardi are truly everything I look for in transition shades…and I mean look at Rosen and Garcia. They are so warm and absolutely gorgeous. I can’t get enough of them.

Overall thoughts: This palette was worth the wait. It is everything I expected and more. I know this palette has been out for awhile, but I wanted to do this review anyway since Hautelook has The Balm on sale a few times a year on their site. I feel that this palette can be used alone and in conjunction with other shades. There’s such a great variety of shades that all work harmoniously together, and the packaging is so retro and adorable. Not to mention, there’s a decent sized mirror in it so that’s a bonus!

As always, thank you for stopping by and reading this rambling, and I hope you are all having wonderful days.

Hard Candy Natural Eyes + Potential Dupe

IMG_4968

Let me start off by saying I rarely venture into Walmart. I live in Tennessee, and just trust me when I say you never know what’s going to happen when you venture into a Walmart. I’ve had some weird experiences. However, I went in to scope out their clearance and browse around since I was bored and feeling antsy.

I ended up coming across a few gems that I can’t believe I haven’t seen many reviews on yet! I don’t own many Hard Candy things since what I have tried by them has been bad (for me) but I saw they had some really cool new things, including new eyeshadow palettes!

What caught my eye the most about these palettes was how similar they looked to the Too Faced tin palettes…and I had a hunch that the one called “Natural Eyes” may be a dupe for the Natural Eyes palette by Too Faced.

My hunch was correct.

See:

hard candy natural

The packaging is obviously different, but still it’s the same concept.

hard candy natural eyes

ARE YOU ALL SEEING THIS? They look so similar! I’m so blown away by this right now!
The Too Faced palette retails at $36
Hard Candy: a wallet busting $8

The Hard Candy palette actually comes with more goodies though. It comes with a primer and an eyeliner. The eyeliner is meh (they usually are) but the primer is actually really nice!

I decided to do true side by side swatches…and the two palettes are truly very similar! Are they exact dupes? No. But if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, try this palette out. While I was swatching the Hard Candy one I noticed the shades are very creamy and buttery, which is unusual for drugstore shadows. A few shades were a bit patchy, but not too bad. I’m overall super impressed with them.

IMG_4966

This is the side by side swatches, and I did put an awkward line down the middle to differentiate.
The Too Faced Natural Eyes palette is always going to have a special place in my heart, but I really love the Hard Candy one as well. I did swatch these over primer since that’s how most people wear shadows, and because I’m so pale that if I don’t some shades just don’t show up.
I may end up going back and picking up the Sassy one as well…because I’m sassy, that’s why.

IMG_4987(1)

IMG_5010(1)

This is a quick look I put together with the palette to test out how well they work with brushes. They blended beautifully! The matte shades are so pigmented and buttery, I’m in love already. The primer was really nice as well, and my shadows did not crease at all!
My overall thoughts are if you come across this, buy it. You can’t really go wrong with a palette like this that’s also cheap.

I had a hard time finding reviews of the new Hard Candy stuff, but if you have reviews of your own, please feel free to link them in my comments section! Or suggest something for me to try!

I did pick up one of their new foundations since the shade looked paper white (my perfect shade, yes!) so if you’re fair skinned and want to see my thoughts, make sure to follow me for updates!

As always, thanks for reading. Have a great day, lovelies.

January Empties

I don’t think I have done an empties post in several months. I always forget to hold on to my trash.
I want to start doing them again, so if you want to go through my classy trash basket with me…keep reading.

IMG_4001

I don’t have a super huge amount of trash this month since I have been trying out so many new things (my face is screaming at me to stop) but I do have several things to share.

IMG_4002

1. Bed Head Rockaholic Dry Shampoo– This little puppy retails at $18, but I find that it’s on sale often at Ulta, and even on Zulily at times for $7.99 (like I would pay $18 ever). It’s my favorite dry shampoo that I have tried thus far. I know I posted about the Pssst dry shampoo, but I like the scent of the Bed Head one more. It has a nice orange scent and doesn’t leave white residue behind in my raven colored hair. I was afraid to finish it, but I just bought 2 more bottles of it at Ulta since the hair gods rained their blessings on me and I found 2 pink bottles of this dry shampoo for 97 cents each. Yep, you read that right. It was a great day.

IMG_4003

2. Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips– I honestly go through these fairly often. I use pore strips on my nose probably once a week, and I typically use one on my chin once a week as well. I get really bad blackheads on my chin and nose, and these seem to help. I know some complain about the tugging and whatnot, but they have always worked for me. I feel like I have been using this brand of pore strips since I was in high school. My mom is to blame for my weird fascination with getting rid of blackheads.

3. Biore Self Heating One Minute Masks– I bought these awhile back out of pure curiosity. You’re supposed to rub this mask in circular motions on your face for 1 minute as it heats up and deep cleanses your pores. It heats up, alright. I honestly did not like the warmth in this mask. I felt like I was burning my face. However, it did leave my face feeling nice and clean. I finally used all of these up though. I will probably not repurchase these…ever. Sorry, Biore, I can’t take the heat.

IMG_4004

I used up some makeup items! *does the beauty blogger dance*

4. Tarte “Lights, Camera, Lashes” Mascara– This mascara wasn’t as used up as it was dried out. Sadly, that happens to most mascaras it seems. I do like the formula of this mascara. It’s (well, before it dried out) a wet formula and actually gave my wimpy lashes nice length without it being clumpy. I may repurchase this one, I haven’t decided yet.

5. Elf Hydrating Under Eye Primer– this is a holy grail product for me. If I could have opened up this tube and scraped product out, I would have. It’s amazing! It’s hydrating and helps my concealer stay in place without creasing…it’s also $3. One of my absolute favorite beauty discoveries of 2014, and I always recommend this to anyone that looks like a Tim Burton character and wears a lot of concealer *raises hand.* I have already repurchased this, I can’t live without it.

6. Nyx HD concealers in “lavender” and “porcelain”– I go through these concealers very often. They’re my go-to concealers and this will probably not be the last time you see these in an empties post. I try out new concealers often, but I always reach for these. I’m so fair that I have to mix both to get a nice shade that conceals and brightens my under eye area, but at $5 each it’s okay. I will say that I feel these do not last very long, and that’s probably due to the packaging. I literally scrape product out of these and get every last drop out that I can. These two have just had enough, and are not on their journey to makeup heaven.

IMG_4005

7. Olay fresh makeup remover wipes– I got these in my last Walmart beauty box. I love makeup wipes, so I was excited to try these out. Sadly, these disappointed me. They’re okay, but not the best I have ever tried. I felt like they didn’t remove a lot of makeup and I had to spend extra time washing my face afterwards. Definetely not something I will purchase on my own.

8. Neutrogena makeup remover wipes– these are my all time favorite remover wipes. I wish they weren’t on the pricier side ($6-8) but they’re worth it to me. They help me cut down on my skin care routine time, and when you have 2 kids that is actually a big deal. The sooner I can get my face cleaned off, the sooner I can sit down and read for a few minutes or whatever else. I will probably always go back to these and always repurchase them.

Welp, those were my empties for the month. Now I can throw them away and my boyfriend can stop giving my trash basket weird looks! πŸ˜€

Review and Lip Swatches: Milani Matte Lipsticks

IN my recent “drugstore adventures” I have found every new item from Milani except the matte lipsticks. It was so strange. It then came to my attention that the stores I had found the other new Milani items had put the lipstick display on an end cap away from the makeup section entirely. Who does that? Why do they torture me so?

Anyway, so I found them. Because the display was so hidden (did they do this on purpose?) every color was in stock, so I grabbed the ones I wanted most to try out before I go back and get some others. I ended up picking up 3 of the new matte shades that I would like to swatch and review today.

IMG_3924

IMG_3925

I picked up “matte naked,” “matte blissful,” and “matte confident.” My reasoning behind this was because I feel that everyone that loves lipstick should have a pretty nude, a pretty pink (even me), and a pretty classic red shade. They’re staples, in my opinion, for everyday use. Well, for most people. I do wear strange colors often, but that’s another day, another post.

I’ve been trying these out for a few days now and I will say that I adore them. From the price to the packaging…Milani does it again. They are truly amazing with lipsticks.

Price $4.99 at my local Kmart. These are starting to pop up in CVS stores though, and CVS has BOGO 50% off sales on Milani at least every few weeks. You could probably get these for pretty cheap if you wish! $5 is still not bad at all for lipstick though. I mean, have you seen the prices of some of the other new lipsticks out in other drugstore lines? They’re trying to break momma’s wallet.

Formula very creamy matte formula. Not very drying on the lips and they feel like velvet on my lips. I can barely even tell I have lipstick on. However, I will say that because I have been wearing matte lipstick for so long now, I do always properly prepare my lips for matte colors. I typically scrub my lips 1-2 times a week and put a heavier balm on them at night and then a lighter chapstick on first thing every morning. If you’re interested in my “lip prep” routine, let me know

Application very smooth, which was to be expected given the creamy texture. I have applied all 3 of these on my lips now, and I didn’t have any patchiness with any of them.

Longevity These last for a good amount of time if you’re not eating and drinking. However, these are not stains or liquid lipsticks, so they will fade and possibly bleed if you’re eating and drinking. If you know you’re going to be doing either, or won’t be able to reapply after a few hours, I would personally use a lip liner of some sort to prevent the “ring around the lip” look πŸ™‚

Smell Yes, smell is important to me. These smell like vanilla! So yummy.

Overall thoughts If you’ve been thinking about getting these, just get them. They’re wonderful. Milani has had some really strong new releases lately, some of the absolute best in terms of drugstore makeup (also just my opinion). Then again, Milani is one of my favorite drugstore brands.

Matte Confident is my favorite so far. Creamiest matte red I have put on my lips in awhile. If you’ve gotten anything from this line, what’s your favorite color?

First Impression: Body Shop Honey Bronzer

IMG_3171

I will probably be doing a few mini/quicker reviews this week since this time of the year is very busy for me (and many others). However, I did want to talk about this little gem that arrived in my mail the other day.
I’m not a huge bronzer fanatic, mostly because most bronzers tend to make me look orange. I think this is a problem for many people with very pale skin. However, I’ve seen Essie from EssieButton talk about this bronzer a million times, and when I finally found it for 50% off and with free shipping on The Body Shop’s site, I decided to give it a try.

I got the shade light (duh) and it is indeed very light and very matte. That’s right, there’s no shimmer in this baby and that’s downright amazing. I applied this after I contoured my face using Nyx’s blush in “taupe” and this bronzing powder did not look orange, and it did not turn orange throughout the day. I went to a dinner/baking party last night and when I left 5-6 hours later I noticed my face still had a pretty nice (but very subtle) bronze glow to it.

I now see why Essie raves about this product so often.

Pros:
-Very suitable for pale skin
-Decent amount of product (11 g total)
-Beautiful packaging and presentation
-Long lasting
-No orange/red tones
-Matte

Cons:
-Price. It’s $20 regular price, which is higher, but the body shop has sales so often that it would be easy to catch it at a great price.

Overall, I’m very happy with this product and will continue to use it as my go-to bronzing powder for now during the Winter. I would definetely reccomend this to any other pale friend out there that struggles to find something that doesn’t look orange on their skin.

Thanks for dropping by and make sure to follow me if you want and talk to me and stuff πŸ™‚
