July Favorites!

Hey lovelies,

It’s the beginning of a new month, which means that I get to talk about all the things I’ve been loving on and around my face for the past month! Most of what I talked about was makeup, of course, but I did add a random favorite in there.

The question of the day is, what do you all like to see in favorites videos? I try to keep it down to my absolute favorites to avoid talking for 30 mins, but I am always up for hearing feedback regarding my channel and content. Even though I film and post what I like, I do keep in mind that others watch me and I would hate to sound repetitive or put everyone to sleep.

Do you all like favorites videos with strictly makeup, or some skincare and hair stuff mixed with a few random things? Let me know!

I hope you all enjoyed July’s video! If you’re new to my blog, please subscribe to my channel! I typically post videos to my blog after they’ve been on my channel for a few days.

All products mentioned are in the description box 🙂 I did forget to mention that my awesome hat is from Rue 21.

Have a good day, lovelies.

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.

Too Faced Natural Matte Palette

too faced natural matte

Hey lovelies,

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.

IMG_6320

too faced natural matte

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.

IMG_6319

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 🙂

Hell (again) lovelies!

I had a few minutes of “me” time so I went ahead and uploaded a new video!

If you’re curious as to what’s in my purse, please watch and subscribe to me if you haven’t already!
I’m super close to 200 subscribers, and it would make me the happiest person ever to reach that by tonight.
The things in my bag are very normal haha! So, what’s in your bag? Are we bag twinsies? Do we like the same things?

Glambot Review & Haul

Hello Beauties,

I decided to film a quick video reviewing Glambot and show what I got from their site during their last huge sale.

glambot

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!

March Favorites

Hello, and welcome back!

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!

Late night bonus post! Yay!

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.
