I know I don’t usually post on Fridays, but I wanted to stop by and let you all know that I do have new videos on my Youtube channel! I uploaded my September Favorites, a Halloween Tag, and most recently another Fall Glam tutorial. I really hope you all enjoy them, and if you’re not subscribed to my channel, you should be!
I’m kidding, only subscribe if you want to. It does give you a chance to see when I first upload new videos. I’ve been uploading twice a week right now, and I’m hoping it stays like that for awhile.
Fall Glam Tutorial:
Well, that’s it for today’s little update! I hope you’re all having wonderful days 🙂
See you all tomorrow for another Swatch Saturday post!
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.
Left is Desire, Right is Crush
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!
I know I don’t always post on Fridays, but I did upload a new video to my Youtube channel yesterday! It’s also a collab with Kaily from Hello Kaily which means you’re getting two videos! Well, technically four, because we’re both uploading “get ready with me” style videos next week *winks awkwardly*
I’m really happy that Kaily wanted to collab with me on this one, because I think with brand focused videos it’s awesome to see different points of view and an variety of products. That and if you’re nosy like me, you probably like to see why people prefer some products over another within a brand.
If you don’t follow Kaily or you’re not subscribed to her, definitely check her out! I will have her video linked in this post along with mine, and I have her channel link in the description bar.
I hope you all enjoyed this video! If you want to see any other brand focus videos, please let me know! Have a good day, beauties.
It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another weekly Face of the Day post! However, this week I actually filmed this look. I was feeling inspired and had a bit of free time (aka the babies were sleeping) so I sat down and played with makeup. I was feeling inspired by several things, the color purple and one of my favorite youtubers, ReeRee Phillips. If you’re not subscribed to her, she does very goth looks, but they are somehow artsy and wearable…or at least wearable to me. There’s something enchanting about her makeup tutorials, so if you’re not subscribed to her, check her out. I also love that she uses classical music as the background for her videos…I can only handle that whistling song so many times. I’m just being honest.
Primer: Hard Candy sheer primer
Foundation: Nars Weightless Luminous foundation “Mont Blanc” + Loreal Magi Lumi in W-1
Concealer: Nyx HD lavender + LA Girl HD concealer in “porcelain”
Powders: physicians formula correcting powder + Laura Geller balance and brightening powder in “porcelain”
Brows: Milani pomade in “dark brown,” nyx brow mascara in “black” ofra universal brown pencil, and Nyx control freak setting gel.
primer: maybelline color tattoo. Use whatever primer you have, I’m honestly just trying to use this little shit up.
Shadows: Nyx SOS (transition) Sugarpill 2 am, the dark purple from the High Flying Colors Wet n Wild palette, and the white shade from the Hemporary Solutions palette.
Liners: NYC liquid liner, physicians formula eye booster, Nyx liquid noir, Nyx white liquid liner
Mascara: Maybelline Falsies
Lashes: a demi wispy type of lash that I got off of ebay
I did a voice over for this video, which it’s my second time doing a voice over so forgive me if it’s totally awkward. Please let me know what you think of the video, look, and quality! Also, please subscribe if you haven’t already, and sharing my videos and page helps me out a great deal as well. Thank you all so much for your constant support and for checking my face out today.
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.
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!
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.
Today, I have another palette review! This is going to be about the relatively new Too Faced Natural Eyes Matte palette. Not to be mistaken with their original Natural Eyes palette (one of my personal favorites).
This palette is $36 on http://www.toofaced.com or on sephora.com, but I actually snagged this for 20% using a code from Ipsy. There are two new palettes right now on Too Faced, a matte one and a colorful one. You all know how much I love matte shadows…and neutrals, so yeah, I needed this one.
First off, there are 9 shades in this palette. There are a couple of repeat shades from the original, but I don’t mind. The repeat shades are Heaven, Garter Belt, Sexpresso, and Nudie. I love those shades in the original, so I honestly don’t mind having duplicates of them. However, if that bugs you keep it in mind if you’re debating on getting this.
This is the side by side comparison. Even though there are duplicate shades, these palettes are very different outside of the fact that the original has shimmer shades.
The shades that drew me in and basically seduced me were “chocolate cookie” and “honey butter.” Those shades just looked so damn pretty to me.
I do feel there is a good balance of warm and cooler shades in this palette.
The shadows did kick up a bit when I first tried them (mostly chocolate cookie) but it wasn’t too bad. The colors are still very blendable and buttery.
In terms of pigmentation, these are pretty pigmented, but maybe not as pigmented as my Kat Von D Shade + Light eye palette. I have a feeling I may be comparing every palette I buy this year to that one.
If I had to choose between the two for life threatening reasons, I would go with the Kat Von D one. Unless you’re a collector or just really freakin’ love palettes, you probably won’t need bother. Too Faced is my second favorite brand of all time though, so I wanted it for obvious personal reasons.
Hey, this is a non judging zone.
Left to right: heaven, cashmere bunny, sexpresso, lace teddy, strapless, risque, nudie, honey butter, chocolate cookie
I did these swatches over no primer.
Overall, I’m really happy with this purchase and I don’t feel it’s a redundant thing for me to have, even though I already own the original. I feel the colors blend easily and look beautiful over primed eyelids. Chocolate cookie and Honey Butter are everything, in my opinion. I really love those two colors. This packaging is also very travel friendly.
Attached is a first impression with me using the shadows and a matte brown smokey eye tutorial 🙂
Enjoy, and subscribe to my channel if you want to!
I hope you all liked this post, and thanks for reading.
I adore this palette and chances are I will be using it a ton more. I hope you all enjoy this video and look, and all the products used are in the description box under the video! Oh, and subscribe if you want to continue to see my videos!
I decided to film a quick video reviewing Glambot and show what I got from their site during their last huge sale.
I purchased these products with my own money.
And it was well worth it. I spent a whopping $15 on 5 high end eyeshadows that are all practically brand new! I highly recommend this website if you’re a makeup lover on a budget, but also loves high end products.
…because that’s the story of my life.
And like I said before, I was not contacted by Glambot to do this at all. I’ve just been wanting to shop their site for awhile now and I couldn’t pass up 80% off Urban Decay shadows!
left to right: too faced “cocoa comet,” urban decay “dashiki” “chronic” “fishnet” and “gunmetal”
Can I please say that I am not ready for April? This year is going way too fast, which means in 2 short months I will have a 3 year old and a 1 year old 😦
Someone get me a cold cloth, I think I feel baby fever hitting me.Just kidding, my hands are full enough at the moment.
I don’t have an empties post this month because I want to continue to save up all my trash and do a huge review of all my empties at the end of April!
I do have a favorites video this month, and I talk about a lot of new Nyx products because I took advantage of their 30% off snapchat deal a few weeks back.
If this is your first time on my blog…hey! I do have a youtube channel that you can subscribe to. I am still trying to figure out an exact uploading schedule, but I think I want to upload every wednesday and friday/saturday. I’m working on it. New subscribers make me so happy though!
Yesterday, I uploaded a new video to my channel. It’s a collab (her video and channel is linked under mine). We wanted to do something fun and Spring themed, yet still grungy. Not everyone is into pink and bronzers, myself included most of the time.
I hope you all enjoy, and make sure to subscribe if you liked it, and link me to your channels if you want.
