Current Beauty Favorites

Hey lovelies,

I posted a new video on my youtube channel! I did’t post my May favorites and we’re into July, so I decided just to do my current beauty favorites.

Not a whole lot since it’s Summer and applying makeup makes me feel miserable at times, but there’s still quite a bit.

Please like it and subscribe if you want to see more videos! There’s also a giveaway linked in the description box.

Pregnancy update: I am now 28 weeks which means I am in my third trimester. That’s right, this is the home stretch…no pun intended. I am due in late September, and chances are I will have some things scheduled starting in September and then I will taking a short leave on all platforms, including Instagram, to soak up newborn love.

February Ipsy 2016

ipsy glam bag

Hey beauties,

Ah, February, that time of the year with that one holiday where some people gag from an overload of love and others gag watching it unfold. There’s always makeup though, right?

If you’re new to my blog, I have been subscribed to Ipsy for a little over 2 years now. They’re a monthly beauty subscription service that costs $10 per month, and they send out 4-5 full sized or deluxe sample sized beauty related items. These can be makeup, skincare, and even hair care items.

First off, I am head over heels in love with the bag this month. It’s my favorite yet. Usually, I kinda forget about my bags or just use them as toddler snack holders, but this one will actually be used for lipsticks in my purse. It’s just too cute.

Okay, now on to what I actually received this month.

1. Luxie Beauty small tapered brush– I was SO HAPPY to see this in my glam room sneak peak. I ordered the bigger Luxie blending brush awhile back thanks to an Ipsy deal, and it’s  one of my most used eye brushes. These brushes are cruelty free, and the pink handles speak to my girly side. I highly recommend these brushes. I’ve already used this one several times, and it’s love at first stroke. This works really well if you’re wanting to put a darker shade more concentrated in the crease…which is something I do constantly.

2. Smashbox Primer Oil– This is another sample I was happy to see in my bag this month. I’ve seen several mention this product already on Youtube and Instagram, but I don’t always like the thought of dropping a lot of money on a hyped up product. This sample size isn’t very big, but I can make it work for a few foundation applications. I have incredibly dry skin, so I’m hoping that this primer oil will be perfect for me. I’ll probably be updating you all on this in a later post or video,

3. Seraphine Botanicals Carrot + Rose Moisturizer– I’ll be honest, I think carrots and roses sound like an odd scent combination. However, I love trying out new moisturizers, and this one is vegan and works on the face and body. I’ve been wanting to find a more organic and cruelty free facial moisturizer, and now I can try one without spending $50. Let’s be real, skincare can get really expensive. I don’t mind skincare samples at all.

4. Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment– This product was a full size I believe, and I love eyeshadows! This shadow is pretty neat and has a super long ingredient list of 3 things. This is supposed to be a non-allergenic pigment. I will say that when I opened this pigment up it was very finely milled, almost too finely milled. It was pretty messy. However, the shade is really pretty. I received the shade Sierra Nevada 2 which is a light champagne type of shade. I don’t know how great this would do alone, but I do feel this is going to look stunning over other shades this Spring and Summer.

5. Chella Lipstick Pencil in Passionate Pink– Right off the bat, I don’t like pink lipstick.  There are very few shades of pink I will wear. I do think this pink shade leans more towards the orange side, which definitely means I won’t wear it. This lip pencil is pretty though and did swatch smoothly and has a nice pigment to it. I just don’t foresee myself using it. I do think my mom will like this shade, so I’ll probably gift it to her.

Overall thoughts– I am happy happy with mostly everything I received this month! The only thing I feel “meh” about is the lip pencil, but I understand that Ipsy put in there in the spirit of Valentine’s Day this month. I’m already in love with the brush, and I am itching to try the primer oil and eye pigment.

Wet n Wild Haul + Mini Reviews

Hey lovelies,

Today I posted a new video on my youtube channel! I wanted to do an overall haul of all the new Wet n Wild goodies that have been popping up everywhere and give mini reviews on some of the things I have already tried out. Wet n Wild has reformulated some things, and has just expanded their brand in general. Actually, drugstore makeup in general is expanding, which is awesome! It means more affordable options for everyone.

I hope you all enjoy this video! If you’re already subscribed to my channel, please do so if you want to! Oh, and here’s the swatches of the Au Natural palettes that can be found at Walmart:

This one is the Bare Necessities palette

New at the Drugstore! (Haul)

Hey Beauties,

I don’t think I have done a chatty little haul blog post in a very long time. 2015 is over and 2016 is here…and it bears gifts. Makeup gifts. Lots of makeup gifts. It’s a good thing my resolution wasn’t to not buy makeup, because I would’ve failed before New Year’s.

It’s no secret that I love drugstore makeup. As much as I love a great high end palette, I love sharing more affordable options with you all and I like to have them handy in my own collection for personal use and tutorials. There are a few brands that always get me though, and Wet n Wild and Milani are two of them. I always love browsing around different stores for their newest collections.

It’s rare that I am disappointed with the quality of their products. So, when I found an almost untouched display of new products from both their brands, I jumped at the chance to pick a few (a lot) things up.

new milani

First, I’ll talk about some new Milani products.

Basic Neutral Eye Palette $10– At first, I thought this palette was pricey, but then I saw that pretty gold packaging and considered the fact that Loreal sells palettes for $16-20 and figured it was worth it. This is just a standard neutral palette, but there were 3 palettes on the display. I grabbed this one to test them out and see how I like them. I’ve swatched a few of these shades and I really love the dark brown shade and the shimmery one. A few of Milani’s eye products have been major misses lately, so I’m hoping this one will redeem how I feel about their shadows.

Primer Perfection Hydrating Primer $10– I picked this up out of pure curiosity. I have super dry skin in the Winter, and I’m curious as to how a primer can be both hydrating, oil free, and a pore minimizer. I will definitely be talking about this in an upcoming video!

Rose Hip Oil Lip Treatment $8– This was another purchase that I felt was kind of pricey for a drugstore product, but considering the price of competing lip treatments, this was a steal. I’ve already been using this, and I love the smell. I’m not too fond of the huge ass applicator, but the product itself is very moisturizing and if I apply it before bed I wake up with my lips not feeling dried out. It’s also not too thick like true lip masks can be, and feels more like a silky lip oil.

new wet n wild

Okay, the Wet n Wild displays were what I went ham on. I love me some Wet n Wild products. They were also on sale at Walgreens and there were little coupons in places, so double score. Nothing makes me happier than an already affordable brand being on sale.

Brushes 99 cents-2.99– I have been wanting these brushes for SO LONG. They are so freakin’ cute. They were also way cheaper than I expected. Now, these are obviously going to look way cuter than they feel and they do feel a bit plasticy, but the brushes themselves are super soft. I have used the powder brush a few times to put loose powder under my eyes, and it does a great job at being super gentle in that area! The eye brush is awesome as well, and will set you back a whole dollar.

Brow Mascara $5– I actually needed a new brow mascara since my beloved Nyx one was drying out. I’ve used this one a few times, and I honestly may like this more than my Nyx one. The wand on this is slanted so it’s easier to apply it to your brows. This is also a few dollars cheaper than my Nyx one!

Max Fanatic Cat Eye Mascara– Remember when I reviewed that other Max something or another mascara and hated it? I really hope this one is better and I don’t hate it. I need a cruelty free mascara option that isn’t $23 like my all time favorite Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara.

Glow Shimmer Strips ThingI never know what these things are called. This I picked up because it reminded me of the popular Ofra Cosmetics highlighting brush strips. But these aren’t $30, they’re $4.99. This has so much product, and the light pink highlight in this looks a lot like the one I love so much from my limited edition Fair Trade Coffee trio from last Summer.

Lash O Matic Fiber Mascara $8– I bought this out of pure impulse. Most days I wear natural looking false lashes, but I’m wanting to see if this will be any good. I will probably end up doing a first impression video on this product. The Physicians Formula one didn’t “wow” me because the fibers got EVERYWHERE. Honestly, now that I know how to out lashes on properly, it takes me less time to put them on than trying to put 3 million coats of mascara on my wimpy lashes.

I also picked up the new setting spray a few weeks back, but it’s not in the photos. I’ve been using it, and I will say there’s not a lot of product in it. It is nice to have a cruelty free and affordable drugstore option though. Even though the setting spray didn’t blow my mind, it’s still nice and worth looking into!

Well, that’s everything I picked up in this mini drugstore haul. I have a huge Ulta haul on the way, but I’ll probably film that and add my Christmas makeup presents in it as well. So, if you’re interested in that, make sure you’re subscribed to my Youtube channel!

I hope you all enjoyed this little haul post! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days.

October Lip Monthly Unbagging

october lip monthly

Hey lovelies,

I know I’m doing two unbaggings in a row, but next week is the week of Halloween so I want to save that week for some cute makeup looks and more Fall tutorials! So, today I want to share with you all what I received in my Lip Monthly bag.

Lip Monthly is a monthly beauty subscription that now costs $12.95 per month. You get 4 full sized products, 3 being lip products and there’s always a “makeup mix up” that isn’t a lip product. On average, their bags are high value and most I’ve gotten have been worth $40+. There is almost always a code to get your first bag for $5 floating around as well on Instagram!

Even better, starting in November subscribers will be able to choose the shades they get in their bag, and they’re starting a rewards program! I’m stoked about this new addition to their service. I’m a bit picky when it comes to the shades I wear, and being able to choose will be awesome. Give me all the reds.
Okay, let’s get on to the unbagging:

1. Pencil Me in Eyeliner in One Cent This is a full sized product that retails at $6.99. I’ve received an eyeliner from this brand before, but I wasn’t a fan of the color. However, I really love this color. I like this formula and it doesn’t tug on my eyes at all, and this shade is right up my alley! It’s a shimmery copper shade which is very flattering for green eyes, so I can’t wait to include this in a few fall looks!

2. Lord & Berry Lip Crayon in Sensual This crayon retails at $16, which is a lot for this tiny lip crayon. However, this color, like it’s name, is pretty sensual. It’s a really pretty muted red shade, so if you’re someone that doesn’t like bright reds but enjoys the look of a sultry muted red for Fall, this is a good one! I do have another one from this brand, and now that I have two I might do an official review, what do you all think?

3. Hikari Crayon in Mandarin This chubby lip crayon retails at $14, but I don’t quite understand this shade being in the October bag. It’s orange-y but more in a Summer sense and not in a Fall sense. I don’t really see myself pulling this out until Spring, but it is a lovely shade and it swatched very smoothly, which means it will probably be very hydrating.

4. J.Cat Lipstick in Auburn This is the lowest value item at $2.99, but probably the product I love the most in this bag. Weird, right? I’ve been wanting to try more J.Cat lipsticks ever since the concealer shade Lip Monthly sent everyone (no fiascos like that since then, thankfully) because these seem promising. I adore this shade. It’s so beautiful, and I nearly gasped when I swatched it. Okay, I do that often because I have a serious lipstick addiction and when something swatches smoothly and is a gorgeous shade, my heart flutters. Don’t judge me.

Well, that’s everything I got in my Lip Monthly bag! If you’re curious about past bags, I do have quite a few reviews of their brand that include things about their customer service on my blog as well, just use the search bar on the right hand side of my page and search “Lip Monthly.” I’ve gotten some pretty awesome things in this bag, and some duds. That’s the risk I take with loving beauty subscriptions so much though. This month’s bag retails at $39.98, which is pretty high value, but not as high as usual.

I am really happy overall with this bag. Let me know if there’s anything you all would love to see a lip swatch or short mini review of!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Colourpop Throws it Back: Haul + Swatches

colourpop fall

Hey beauties!

It’s Saturday, and I have some swatches for you all! Okay, so remember when I said I needed to stop shopping so much? Well, as soon as I said that everyone dropped previews of their Fall lines. I was lying to myself before I even knew I was lying to myself. However, I was better and narrowed down what I really really wanted from Colourpop’s Throwback line to 6 things. These were the 6 things that I knew I would use in tutorials or on an everyday basis.

If you’re unfamiliar with Colourpop, they are an indie company that is quickly growing in popularity on Instagram and Youtube. Their products are very affordable. Their shadows are $5 each and their lippie pencils and sticks are also $5 each. Now, their lippie sticks only come with 1 gram of product (1/3 of what is in MAC lipsticks for reference) but that’s perfect for me, because I rarely ever use up lipsticks.

Anyway, I picked up 6 items, 3 shadows and 3 lip products, from the Colourpop Throws it Back collection. This collection is inspired by the 90’s, from the names to the colors. Colourpop tends to nail trendy colors, and they did not disappoint with this line. It’s filled with cool tones, browns, reds, and dark plum shades. You can get your Craft on with these shades.

IMG_1953 IMG_1955

I picked up 3 shadows that I thought would be great together or separately. I settled on Mixed Tape, Central Perk, and Straight Trippin.

Anyone else a huge Friends fan? When I saw the name of one was Central Perk, I knew I needed it. It could have been dead slug slime green and I probably would’ve still gotten it. I was in luck, because this is probably one of the most beauty burgundy shades I have swatched in a bit. I haven’t gasped at a burgundy eyeshadow since I swatched Melt’s ‘Enigma” awhile back. It’s so lush.

IMG_1954

These are the swatches. Left to right: Mixed Tape, Central Perk, Straight Trippin

I really want to create a messy smokey eye with these shades. I don’t think I’ve done a messy smokey eye yet on my blog or Youtube channel where I didn’t have some elaborate cat wing or something. These are all gorgeous though, and I highly recommend getting Mixed Tape and Central Perk.

IMG_1957

I also picked up 2 lippie sticks and a lippie pencil. I got the lippie pencil and stick in “Grunge” and the lippie stick in “Poison.” Okay, Poison is awesome and I’m hoping this shade is named after the band and not the poison apple in Snow White. Well, either are pretty badass in my book. I digress. It’s a red, so yeah I had to have it.

Grunge is a mid tone cooler brown shade. I really feel like Colourpop nailed this shade. They gave people a more affordable option to relive that 90’s lip. That’s what I’ve always loved about their brand.

IMG_1958

Swatches left to right: grunge stick, grunge pencil, poison

Curious about how Poison compares to the other reds from Colourpop? I was too! So I did a comparison post:

IMG_1960

From left to right: Lady, Bichette, Blood, Poison

Poison reminds me of a mix of blood and lady.

That was everything that I got from this collection…so far. Ha! Did you all pick anything up from this collection? Let me know!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! As always, thanks for reading and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

New on My Youtube Channel

milani amore lip creme

Hey lovelies,

I just wanted to pop in quickly and let you all know that I do have a couple of new videos on my Youtube channel! So, if you want, make sure to watch them and subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already! Also, I always love and respond to comments.

First video: Review + Swatches of 6 Milani Lip Amore Lip Cremes

This video has been on my channel for about a week now. I swatched 6 out of 8 of the new Lip Amore Lip Cremes, and I swatched them on my lips and in natural light.

IMG_1343 milani amore lip creme

Left is Desire, Right is Crush

IMG_1337(1) milani amore lip creme

Left is Beloved, Right is Embrace

In my opinion, Beloved, Lust, and Desire are must haves. They perform the best for me and last the longest and don’t crumble when I eat anything.

Second Video: Influenster Wellness VoxBox Unboxing

I did get this box for free, but like I mentioned in the video ANYONE can sign up and become an Influenster, and I have more info about it under the video! No, I don’t get points or anything for putting the website there. I just like to share the wealth with everyone. I used Influenster before I started blogging, and it was an awesome way to sometimes save money on new things when I was in a tight financial spot.

That’s it for today’s post! I hope you all enjoy the new videos! I will be filming my August Favorites, an empties video, and another tutorial very soon!

Have a good day, loves.

Lip Monthly July 2015

lip monthly july

Hey beauties,

I’m here today to do another unbagging! I got my Lip Monthly bag in the mail on Monday, which was a pleasant surprise, because it was storming and gloomy. If you’re unfamiliar with Lip Monthly, they are a beauty subscription that sends out typically 4 full sized products meant for those that love lip products. Their subscription used to be $10 per month, but now they have upped the price to $13 a month. The price change does not affect those that were already signed up though. I’m guessing the price change happened because they do send out full sized products and because the bags have been getting nifty upgrades.

I will say that this subscription is still worth $13. It has improved substantially over the past few months. If you have been keeping up with my blog for awhile now, you’ll know that I have went back and forth regarding my feelings towards Lip Monthly. However, I wanted them to succeed and improve, and they have from what I have seen. It’s always promising to see companies constantly work to improve their services and products.

IMG_8067

Anyway, I receieved four full sized products this month. Three lip products, and the “makeup mix up” which is usually something non lip related. As always, I will list what the price is of each item and go over the total value of the bag!

IMG_8071

Lord and Berry Crayon “Fire” $19 Starting off with a high roller product, this month I got a Lord & Berry lip crayon. This crayon is pretty tiny considering it’s $19. However, the color is stunning! It truly reminds me of a fire red. I only swatched it a tiny bit, and it was really smooth. I’m pretty excited to try this, because you all know how I am about my reds.

IMG_8069

Milani Lip Intense in “Violet Addict” $6.49 I love Milani lip products! However, I already have this color. I actually reviewed this not too long ago,and if you’re interested in my thoughts click here. I love this shade and this formula. I did take a photo of the one I already have instead of opening the new one up though. I’m going to set it in my “giveaway” basket that is slowly collecting some pretty things! Be on the lookout!

IMG_8070

Harvey Prince Mini Roller in “Sincerely” $21 Okay, so I have gotten a fragrance from Harvey Prince before and it smelled like gardenias barfed all over me. I was not a fan. However, this one is better. I will say that Harvey Prince fragrances are strong. I don’t know if I can wear it with my allergies, but I’m going to try and wear it on my wrists a few times to see how that goes.

IMG_8068

Medusa’s Makeup Gloss “French Kiss” $9 This is probably my favorite item this month! First, the packaging is badass. I love it. Second, I have been wanting to try this brand for some time. I’m not a huge lip gloss fan, but I don’t mind trying out new ones. This shade looks like a baby pink, which isn’t my thing whatsoever. However, if I like the formula enough I might finally purchase a few things off their site, including the eye dusts that I have seen floating around Instagram for years now.

Total value of this month’s bag: $55.49

Overall thoughts: This was a decent high value bag! I’m excited to try out a few brands that I have been wanting to try, and I would have been way happier about the Milani lippie if I didn’t already have it in my stash. I am happy that they sent a variety of colors. There was a red, pink, and a fun violet color. I find that Lip Monthly would probably be way more awesome for people wanting to build up their lippie stash on a budget, but I don’t mind adding to my own collection. I should care at this point because my collection is ridiculous…#cantstopwontstop

If you get Lip Monthly, what did you get? Are you happy with your goodies? Or were they baddies? Okay, that’s my worst joke so far on my blog. I’m done now.

Have a lovely day!

J.Cat Beauty Lip Paints: Review + Lip Swatches

j.cat lip paint

Hey loves,

Today for Swatch Saturday I actually have a video! I have been trying out the J.Cat Beauty lip paints that I ordered for a bit now, and I finally sat down and did a review with lip swatches for my Youtube channel! Lip swatch videos are very intense, so I apologize if a few of the darker colors are not very pretty looking. My mouth was on fire towards the end.

IMG_7870

Anyway, just a little tidbit: J.Cat is a cruelty free and very affordable brand. They seem to have a ton of lip products, and I am impressed with almost everything I have tried, and I want to order more.

In the lip paint line, there are 36 colors. The packaging and color range is very reminiscent of the OCC lip tars. They are pretty different though. I would say the J.Cat lip paints are similar in concept and shade range, but pretty different in terms of the finish and lasting power. A few of these do go on patchy and need building up, but the ones that are patchy make incredible mixing shades! Overall, I do enjoy these lip paints and they are fun to play around with!

IMG_7869

I’m considering doing a separate video with all of my favorite mixing combinations using these. Please let me know if you would be interested in something like that, and what colors you would want to see me create! I do know a bit about color theory. Not enough to brag about, but enough to get by.

Everything else that you may need/want to know is in the description underneath the video! Please watch it and let me know what you think. Also, if you’re not subscribed to me please do so! I’m so close to 300 subscribers! So close, yet so far away.

PS- I know I spelled “review” wrong in the opening credit. Way to start a video, right? It was late, and I was tired. It happens, and I’m too lazy to delete a video and re-upload over one letter. That’s precious time that could be spent listening to music in my underwear. I’m totally kidding…

I hope you’re all having amazing days! I do plan on sitting down and catching up on comments very soon, so please don’t think I’m ignoring you! My daughters joint birthday party is this weekend and I’ve been fairly busy with that.

Tip: Turn Loose Shadow in a Liner

IMG_7261

Hey lovelies,

Today I want to share with you all something I’ve been obsessed with doing lately, and that’s turning my loose eyeshadows into eyeliners! Colorful and different liners are trending at the moment, but not everyone has money to drop on a plethora of different Anastasia waterproof creams and liners.

So, I’m going to show you how I create a few neat liners for very cheap. The price of the spray, brush, and BOTH shadows cost less than one high end cream liner.

Intrigued yet?

Okay, now that I hope have your attention, I’m going to prove just how simple this makeup trick really is.

There are mixing mediums that you can buy from Inglot and MAC that are “made” for this job, but I personally use a setting spray. I don’t like the City Color All Set Setting Spray on my face, so I’ve been using it for creating liners. It works well, in my opinion. I found this setting spray at my local Five Below for $3.

IMG_7262

I take my cute little mixing palette (it’s actually just a gold coaster from Target, nothing fancy) and spray a bit of setting spray on the palette. Then, I take a bit of loose shadow and gently scoop it on top of the setting spray.

Pictured here is Shiro Cosmetics loose shadow in “War of Five Armies” (if you get the reference, let’s be best friends). This size is a sample mini, which still has a good amount of product, and the cost was $3.50. The other color pictured above was “Lingered in Twilight.”

I will start small with the shadow and mix it up with my liner brush (Real Techniques $5.99) and keep gradually adding both setting spray and shadow until my desired pigmentation is achieved. That’s the cool thing about making your own liner, you can go soft or go intense.

Because these are shadows, they’re not going to be completely waterproof, but this is fun to do when you want a fun pop of color on your eyes.

IMG_7263

Personally, I don’t experience much fading/creasing when using these shadows as liners and using setting spray, but results may vary based on your eye shape and skin type.

My eyes are fairly large and my skin is dry. Meaning, everything sticks to me and I generally don’t experience smudging with liner on my upper lash line.

However, for the price to buy everything you would need, you can’t go wrong. And if doesn’t go well, you still have two gorgeous shadows instead of two cream liners sitting around and drying up in a drawer.

I love finding new ways to use makeup! What are some of your favorite alternative ways to your favorite products? Comment and tell me about it!

I hope you all enjoyed this quick tip or found it helpful in some way.

Have a good day, beauties.
