April Beauty Favorites

IMG_6574

Hey lovelies,

Another month, another favorites video. This month I had quite a few new products to talk about. For anyone curious, I did not include the Shaaanxo palette because I still want to play around with it a few more times before calling it a “favorite.” The Kat Von D quad made it because it’s one of the cutest palettes I’ve ordered in awhile, and the green in it really did knock my socks off. I have a look using it on my Instagram if anyone’s interested in seeing what I mean.

Random favorite of the month: anyone else catch my face in Shaaanxo’s April Favorites video at about 7:23? Someone on Facebook tagged me to let me know, and I was at my parents house and almost threw my phone across the room I was so excited. I’m dramatic, I know, but it really was an awesome moment for me considering Shannon is one of my favorite “big” beauty bloggers.

I also give a small pregnancy update in this video at the beginning for anyone that likes to keep up with my life outside of makeup. I hope you all enjoy it! I know it’s lengthy, and I’m going to work on cutting my favorites back down quite a bit. I don’t even realize I’m gushing about a product until I’m editing.

 

Also, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram if you want a chance to enter my 4k giveaway! Rules are on the post, and it ends Tuesday the 10th at 5 pm est. It’s not a huge giveaway, but I do want to show my appreciation for all the of the love and kindness I am continually shown by all of you.

Jordana Sweet Cream Liquid Lipstick Review!

jordana liquid lipstick

I recently uploaded a new video to my Youtube channel! I know I didn’t post last week, but I was incredibly sick, and ended up in the emergency room last Friday. Good news is, I’m getting better, and I feel well enough to film and try to play catch up around my house.

I asked Instagram and Facebook which drugstore liquid lipstick I should review next, and the polls were pretty torn. Jordana barely won. With that being said, if you were team velvet mousse, I’m trying those out this week so I can post a review next week!

I found my Jordana lipsticks at Kmart for $2.99 each. Be warned, these have been super popular and a bit difficult for many to find. I lucked out and found mine the day they had been restocked, but even then, creme brûlée was sold out. That’s the one other shade I want!

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this review, and I hope it’s informative. If you’re not subscribed to my youtube channel already, be sure to do so if you want to see what I post on there as soon as it’s uploaded!

 

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

February Favorites & A Life Update!

I can’t be the only human in existence that forgets February is the shortest month of the year. Every. Dang. Year.

February was an eventful month for me. I was able to try out a few new things, and my life is changing quite a bit. I go over it in the video, but spoiler alert, I’m pregnant with baby #3. We’re really excited, but that’s why I’ve been a bit inconsistent and super behind on videos and reviews lately. I’ve done nothing but sleep. Well, I’ve taken care of kids obviously, but any time I can snooze with them, I’ve been sleeping. However, I’m almost out of the fatigue zombie feeling first trimester, which means I’ll be back with more posts before long!

I didn’t want anyone to think I’ve been intentionally ignoring others or all around bored with life. I’m basically a human cat right now. All I have energy for some days is sleeping and making sure I don’t smell bad.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy my favorites this month!

New on my Youtube Channel!

Hey lovelies,

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.

New Makeup Tutorials!

Hey beauties,

First off, Happy October! September kind of flew by for me, but it’s okay since my favorite holiday is almost here! I’ll more than likely be trick or treating with my kids, but I’m truly excited because Harmony is now old enough to pick out her own costume. Lately, she’s been obsessed with Tim Burton films and weird clay-mation movies, so I’m eager to see what she has in mind.

I do not have a detailed “Face of the Day” post this week as I’m trying to catch up on a few things I need to film so I can finally start on Halloween tutorials and blog posts! I do, however, have a few new tutorials on my Youtube channel! One is very glamorous, and the other is very dark and bold. Kinda grungy, still kinda glamorous.

I hope you all enjoy them! If you’re not subscribed to my channel, you should be! You can see when I upload new videos first and come chat with me!

  1. Too Faced Stardust palette & the Vegas Nay Grand Glamor Lashes

This tutorial is the more “Fall glam” look. It’s really not very hard to achieve, but the lashes really steal the show in this look, in my honest opinion. They take the look from everyday to “bam!”

I do have a full product list underneath the description. If you’re curious about the Too Faced and Vegas Nay Stardust palette, I have a full review with swatches here.

2. Warm Eyes + Black Lips ft. Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Stack

pretty zombie cosmetics black cat IMG_2357

I’ll be honest, this is probably my favorite tutorial I have done so far. It was really fun to create, and it’s very bold, yet very simple to achieve. Those are my favorite kinds of looks, honestly. The ones that anyone can do and do a bit messily and them still look glamorous. I haven’t used my Dark Matter stack in awhile, and I paired it with a few indie shadows to keep this look mostly vegan on the eyes and lips, other than the Nyx inner corner highlight. I do have a review of the Dark Matter stack here if you want to see if I feel this 4 color magnetic palette is worth the hype.

Full details and products are under the description for this look as well!

That’s it for what’s new on my Youtube channel! Which is your favorite look? If you have any requests, please let me know!

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

New on the Youtubes: Colourpop Review + Empties

Hey lovelies,

Today I have another update from my Youtube channel! Have you all noticed that I’ve been posting two videos a week the past few weeks? I’m wanting to keep it that way, but we shall see. I do feel very inspired at the moment and I have a lot of things that I want to share.

I do have two new videos, a review with swatches and a more chill video where we all gaze upon my tiny trash bin.

My Colourpop Ultra Matte liquid lipstick review with 9 lip swatches went up very recently! I’ve been meaning to do this review for awhile, but liquid lipstick reviews take up a lot of time if I’m being honest. It’s time that I love filming though. My personal favorite videos to film are lipstick reviews and monthly favorites.

A few footnotes: These truly do live up to their name and are very matte, and therefore can be drying. They do pair well with lip liners, and the Colourpop ones work stellar with these since they’re a creamier formula. The Nyx ones and Essence lip liners are also two awesome and affordable liner options.

This is my first ever empties video, and the general consensus is that I don’t completely suck at these, so I will be doing more of them in the future! Not gonna lie, the hoarding trash thing kinda confuses my boyfriend, but it’s for the blog. That’s actually how I justify a lot of things.

That’s everything that’s new on my Youtube channel for now! I’ll have my August favorites and a possible tutorial up soon ❤

As always, thanks for stopping by, and if you’re new here I hope you decide to stay and/or subscribe to my channel! Have a good day, lovelies.

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.

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.

Night Time Smokey Eyes: Collab w/ Hello Kaily

IMG_1230

Hey lovelies,

Sorry that I did not have a Face of the Day post up this week! It’s been a bit of a busy week, and let’s just say that some fun things are coming to my blog and Youtube channel next month! Anyway, I did post a new video on my Youtube channel, and it’s a tutorial! Even better, it’s a collaboration, so you can watch two tutorials!

If you tuned in last week, Kaily and I collabed with our favorite Wet n Wild products, so this week we posted a day and night look. Kaily did the day time look (which is gorgeous btw) and I did the night time look.Okay, this is a look I wear often no matter what time of the day it is, but it’s smokey and sultry.  Kaily stayed true to the one brand and actually used only Wet n Wild products, and I kinda cheated. However, I did try to stick to only drugstore brands/affordable brushes if I couldn’t use a Wet n Wild product. My skin texture is a bit different, and some of the concealers and such don’t work out for my skin, and I didn’t want to use it and pretend like I think they’re awesome when truthfully I don’t.  It’s also the look I was wearing in last week’s video, just a different lip color.

The key to looks like this is to constantly add, layer, blend, and repeat. I know the word “blend” gets annoying after a bit (I practically hate the word at this point) but it is really crucial, and changes the look and shape completely.

I hope you all enjoyed our two part collab, and I have Kaily’s video and channel linked in the description box under my video. Be sure to check her out if you haven’t already!

Top 10 Wet n Wild Products (Video)

IMG_8288

Hey lovelies,

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.

Face of the Day: Purple + Graphic liner

IMG_8171

Hey loves,

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.
