April Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my April favorites. I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the Eloise Beauty Get Gleaming Body Glow in Champagne Rich. This is a lightweight, non sticky luminizer for face and body. This says it has a transfer proof formula and it appears to be very buildable, so you could build it up for your desired glow. Based on the swatch and the little test I did, it’s super pretty and definitely something I’m going to be using a lot during the summer months.

My last Boxy favorite is the Natasha Denona Ayana palette. This is a 5 pan, cool toned palette made exclusively for BoxyCharm and it has 3 mattes and 2 shimmers. 

 

I’ve done one look with this palette since I’ve had it and I think this palette is a classic example of how great ND shadows are. The formulation is great, the mattes are smooth and blend out nicely, the shimmers are creamy and everything is really pigmented. If you’re looking to try out Natasha Denona shadows and don’t want to commit to one of the larger palettes, I definitely recommend the smaller 5 pan palettes. 

And my last beauty favorite is the ColourPop Fresh Cut BFF Creme Gel Liner Kit. I did a whole post about these, so I’ll link that below as well. I really like this kit. I like the range of colors, they’re super long lasting and they’re comfortable to put in the waterline. If you’re looking for a set of spring colored eyeliners, I definitely recommend this one. 

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s the Popcorners chips. These are triangle shaped popcorn chips and they’re delicious. They have a few flavors but I’ve tried the Sea Salt and Kettle Corn and I would recommend both. What I like about these is they’re light and a lot less messy than eating from a bowl of popcorn. Definitely a great snack. 

Moving on, I have a couple of fashion favorites. I’ve been doing a little bit of online shopping recently with a focus on things for spring and summer, and so far I’ve picked up some really cute pieces. The first is a white tank top from Macy’s. I like this because the material is lightweight, but it’s not totally see through. It has a thicker strap, a scoop neck, a cute little pocket on the left side and it ties at the bottom. 

My second fashion favorite is a dress from Nordstrom. I’m always trying to add more spring and summer dresses to my wardrobe and when I came across this one I thought it was super cute. It’s coral with a white floral print, spaghetti straps, a ruffle at the top and a ruffled bottom. Once I wear it I’ll post pictures on my social media. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite and this time it’s a song. So a little bit of background, the US Navy Blue Angels just started their 2021 show season and the airshow they were at did a live stream of the whole weekend, and one of the things that I’m always interested in is the music they pick for the show and how the songs go with each maneuver. I think that they have a pretty good song list, some I like more than others, and I know that it might change as the season goes on. But there were a few songs in particular that stuck out to me and one of them is American Style by Old Dominion. Not only do I think this is a really fun song, but they use it towards the end of the show when they’re in the Delta and I think it’s super fitting. Definitely a song I would recommend listening to if you haven’t. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your April favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great April :).

ColourPop Limoncello Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with another ColourPop review, this time of the Limoncello palette. This is the third in a series of the three ColourPop posts that I mentioned I would be doing. This is a palette I’m really excited about, so let’s get into it.

So this palette is inspired by Spring days and freshly squeezed lemons and you really get that vibe from the outside of the palette. It has a blue and white background with lemons on branches, cut in half and ‘Limoncello’ written in the middle in gold.

IMG_7974

You get a good size mirror with this palette and it has a yellow boarder with a cut in half lemon in front of blooming lemons in the bottom right corner. 

IMG_7975

This is a 12 pan palette that has mattes and metallics. There is a color range of oranges, yellows, blues, greens and neutrals. Just looking at it, it looks like a really versatile palette. 

IMG_7976

The first shadow we have is Tuscan Fun, a matte medium brown. Next to that is Fly Girl, a metallic orange. Then there’s Easy Peasy, which is a metallic brownish shadow with green undertones and the last shadow in the row is Limone Squeezy, which is a warm matte ginger. 

IMG_7977

The second row starts with Touring, a really pretty metallic champagne. Next to that is Amalfi, which is a matte yellow and I would describe it as a dandelion/canary yellow. Then there’s Serenade, a metallic lemon, but it’s what I would call a pale lemon and the last shadow in the row is Capri, which is a metallic lime green but it’s a deep lime green. 

IMG_7978

The last row is all about the mattes and the first shadow is The Grotto which is a very unique shadow. I would say it’s a deep terracotta. Next to that is Semifreddo, a matte light brown. Then there’s Vespa, which is a really dark brown. I would say it’s a charcoal brown and the last shadow in the row is La Festa, which is a matte demin blue. 

IMG_7979

That about wraps it up for this post, I really like this palette so far, the metallics are really creamy, the mattes all swatched really smooth and everything seems to be very pigmented. If you have purchased this palette I’d love to know what your favorite look is that you’ve done with it. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

ColourPop Lizzie McGuire What Dreams Are Made Of Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a review that I’m really excited about and it’s going to be of the new ColourPop What Dreams Are Made Of Palette from their Lizzie McGuire Collection. I, like many people, was excited when I saw the launch of the Lizzie McGuire Collection because it’s not only super cute, but there’s so much nostalgia.

I really like the direction they went in for the outside of this palette, it’s tie dye with pink flowers, ‘What Dreams Are Made Of’ written in white and outlined in yellow and there’s a cartoon Lizzie in the bottom right corner.

IMG_7930

There’s a decent size mirror in this palette. In the upper left corner there’s some multicolored flowers and in the bottom right corner there’s cartoon Lizzie holding some flowers. 

IMG_7931

This is a 12 pan palette and there’s a pretty good shade range. Plus the shadows all have great names. Normally I’d wait until I had talked about a palette before using it, but I couldn’t resist with this one and I used it before I did my swatches. 

IMG_7932

So the first shadow we have is Buh-Bye! which is a really pretty metallic light gold. Next to that is Puh-Lease, an orangey/peach glitter, then there’s Done And Done, a matte peach that has some brown in it, it’s almost a peachy/beige. And the last shadow in the row is Outfit Rememberer which is a metallic pastel pink, but it has a lavender glitter in it. I’m wearing it right now and it’s so pretty. 

IMG_7933

The first shadow in the second row is Dear Diary, which is a really pretty and unique metallic yellow/green. Next to that is Outie! which is very pretty and it’s a metallic coral with a gold duo chrome effect. Then there’s Uggghhh! (I love the amount of g’s and h’s they used), and this is a matte pink, I would call it a bubblegum pink. And the last shadow in the row is Hello Fabulous and this is a metallic lavender with silver glitter in it. 

IMG_7934

The first shadow in the last row is Don’t Freak, which a matte lime green. Next to that is Soo Mature, which is a sparkly matte coral but it has a pink undertone and hot pink and silver in it. Then there’s Outfit Repeater, (one of my favorite quotes from Lizzie McGuire is “I might be an outfit repeater, but you’re an outfit rememberer, which is just as pathetic” so it makes me so happy they used these both as shade names), but the shadow is sparkly matte fuchsia with hot pink and silver sparkles and the last shadow in the row is Digital Bean, which is a gorgeous shadow, it’s a matte violet but it has pink undertones. 

IMG_7935

That about wraps it up for this post, if you picked up this palette I’d love to know what your favorite shadow or shadows are, and what your favorite look is that you’ve done with it. I definitely think this is going to be a palette I do a 3 recent looks post, with. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

April BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my April BoxyCharm box and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Sweet Treats, which is perfect because Easter was this month.

IMG_7919

So the first item we have is my choice item for the month and it’s the Studio Makeup Tinted Moisturizer in Oat. I don’t wear tinted moisturizer a lot, but I thought it would be a fun thing to try out. This says it will give a light to medium coverage and it’s formulated with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and give you a glowy look. This bottle is 1.5 fl oz/42 ml, so you get a good amount. 

IMG_7921

Next we have the Natasha Denona Ayana palette. This is an exclusive, 5 pan palette made for BoxyCharm. This is a cool toned palette and it has 3 mattes and 2 shimmers. I really like Natasha Denona palettes, I think the shadows are formulated really well, they blend out nicely, the shimmers are creamy and very pigmented. 

IMG_7922

IMG_7923

The first shadow we have is 277CP Harlow, which is a matte light taupe shade, next to that is 327CM Lash Line, a matte, very deep cool toned brown. Then there’s 75P Satin Skin, a warm toned light brown shimmer, next to that is 323Cm Crease, a matte medium taupey brown and the last shadow is 18M Glam Green, which is a gorgeous dark pewter shimmer. 

IMG_7929

Moving on we have the Flirtacious Looks Cosmetics Monarch Lash Pack. I was honestly so excited when I saw these because I pretty much never get lashes in subscription boxes and I really like getting them. 

IMG_7924

The top set is Baby Girl, which are an angled lash to give you the cat eye effect. The bottom set is Charmer which are a more rounded lash to give you a doll eye effect. These do come with a lash applicator, but they don’t come with lash glue, so if that’s not something you keep in your makeup bag, you’ll have to get some. These lashes are both cruelty free and 100% silk. I set these on my eyes just to see what they’re gonna look like and I really like them both. And if you use the code BOXY then you get 25% off the entire site.

IMG_7925

The second to last item we have is the Terre De Mars 008 Reddition Body Cleanser. This cleanser has coffee and rosemary extracts and verbena oil to tone and purify and aloe vera to soften and nourish skin. This says it’s suitable for all skin types and I think it smells really nice. I really like the body cleanser I’m currently using, but I’m really interested to give this a try. 

IMG_7926

And the last item we have is the Eloise Beauty Get Gleaming Body Glow in Champagne Rich. This is a lightweight, non sticky luminizer for face and body. This says it’s a transfer proof formula and you can build it up for your desired glow. I think this is really pretty and definitely something I’ll be using as we get into warmer weather. 

IMG_7927

IMG_7928

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same items in your April box let me know and if not, I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my May box :).

ColourPop Fresh Cut BFF Creme Gel Liner Kit Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun unboxing post. Recently I placed a ColourPop order and when it came I decided that each item would get it’s own post. So today I’m going to be doing the first of three posts.

One thing I haven’t tried from ColourPop is their eyeliner and I really wanted some fun liners for spring, and I came across the Fresh Cut BFF Creme Gel Liner Kit. This has six liners in it in a range of spring colors.

IMG_7844

IMG_7845

Starting at the top we have Exit, which is a pure white liner. I have a few looks in mind for a couple of these liners, this one included, but it’s going to be fun to create new and fun looks with all of them. 

IMG_7846

IMG_7853

Next we have Extra Frosting, which is what I would call a butter yellow. 

IMG_7847

IMG_7855

Then we have Peach Fuzz, which is as it says on the tin, a peach shade. 

IMG_7848

IMG_7856

The next liner we have is Ice Breaker. This is a shade I like a lot and it’s a really pretty mint shade. 

IMG_7849

IMG_7857

The second to last liner we have is Big Splash, which is a really nice sky blue. 

IMG_7851

IMG_7858

And the last liner we have is Amethyst Hour, a really pretty lilac shade. 

IMG_7852

IMG_7859

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have any of these liners I’d love to know which and what looks you’ve done with it/them. You can buy these liners individually if you don’t want the entire kit and they’re $7.00. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many liners :).

3 Recent Looks Lime Crime Venus III Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I have a post that I really like doing, and that is a 3 recent looks. This time it’s going to be about the Lime Crime Venus III Palette. This is a palette that I really like a lot and I’ve been having fun playing around with it.

The first look we have is the first look I did with the palette and I wanted to do something fun a bright, so this is what I came up with. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and Ofra Pressed Banana Powder to set it.

IMG_7721

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed using the Nars Laguna bronzer. Then I applied just a little bit of the Too Faced Makeup & Be Merry blush and highlighted using the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold

IMG_7728

IMG_7730

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the palette and the first shadow I used is Ecstasy and I put that in the crease, but I did so with a light hand and built it up just a little bit. Then I took Paradise and packed that on the outer and inner corners of my eyes, making sure to bring it in a little bit on both sides but leaving a space in the middle. For the space in the middle, I mixed Beam and Rapture and it created a really pretty effect. I then took Paradise and put it under my eye from the outer corner to about 2/3rds of the way in and for the rest and into the inner corner I used Beam. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips I wanted a nice pink, so I used the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek in Rendezvous and I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

IMG_7724

IMG_7733

IMG_7571

For the second look I wanted to do something with the pink shadows in the palette and I really like how this look came out. The first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nuge Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 250, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder. 

IMG_7721

For the rest of my face I used the same products as the first look. Nars bronzer in Laguna, Too Faced Makeup & Be Merry blush and Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. 

IMG_7728

IMG_7730

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime them with the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer. I then went into the palette and used the shade Dreamy. I took that and put it in the crease, building it up just a little bit. I then took Bliss and packed that onto the outer corner of my eyes, bringing it up into the crease just a little and onto the lid. For the rest of my eye I applied Beam and blended that with Bliss. I then took Bliss under my eye from the outer corner about 2/3rds of the way in and for the rest and into the inner corner, I applied Beam. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips I wanted a pink, so I used the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek in Rendezvous. And I set everything with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

IMG_7725

IMG_7732

IMG_7597

For the third look I wanted to do something different to the first two and I think it came out so good. I like this one a lot. The first thing I did was prime my face using the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder. 

IMG_7726

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was bronze using the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then applied the Too Faced Daydreamer blush and Too Faced Angel Kisses highlighter. 

IMG_7727

IMG_7734

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime them using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I took Ecstasy and packed that into the crease. I really like using eyeshadow as liner, so I took and angled brush and lined my eyes using Ecstasy. I then connected the crease and the tip of the liner for a bigger effect and for a bit of sparkle I tapped on a little bit of Heavenly. I topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara. For my lips I wanted something brown to bring it all together, so I took the Beauty Vaulte Kozy Kira Lip Liner and put it all over my lips, topping it with the Nars AfterGlow Lip Balm in Laguna. And I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. 

IMG_7729

IMG_7735

IMG_7603

That about wraps it up for this post, I always really like doing posts like this, so look out for more in the future. If you have this palette, I’d love to know what your favorite look is that you’ve done with it. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought that today would be the perfect day to do my March favorites. I have a pretty good and fun mix of favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. This is one of those holy grail makeup items for me, it has a really nice and creamy formula that doesn’t smudge, run, transfer or flake. The brush is on the fluffier side and it really does a great job of coating all of your lashes. Plus you get a ton of volume and length without your lashes feeling heavy. This is a mascara I always recommend.

IMG_7545

IMG_7547

My next favorite is the Lime Crime Venus 3 Eyeshadow Palette. I wanted this palette when I saw the spoilers for the box and I’m so happy that I got it. This is an 8 pan palette with a shade range of lilac, rose gold, mauve and brown. There are also five different finishes, matte, foil, sparkly matte, sparkly metallic and metallic. I’ve been using this palette quite a bit and I have a 3 recent looks post coming on it. I don’t want to give away too much of my thoughts on it right now, but I will say that I definitely recommend giving this palette a try. 

IMG_7542

IMG_7544

IMG_7554

IMG_7555

And my last beauty favorite is the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. This is a product that I was slightly unsure about when I saw it because I really don’t like the essence of rose in beauty and skincare products, but I do love a good setting spray. After a few times of using it I can tell you that I do really like it. Once you spray it the smell dissipates pretty quickly and what you’re left with is makeup that it locked into place for up to 16 hours and won’t smudge. 

IMG_7550

Moving on to more random favorites, I first have a fashion favorite and it’s a pair of shoes. It’s not just any pair of shoes though, these are the Hoka One One Cavu 3’s. I’ve been looking for a good workout/running shoe for a long time and hands down these are the best ones I’ve tried. They’re comfortable, supportive and they don’t give me shin splints, which is huge. These are a little more expensive, but the quality and comfort is worth every penny. I also have to thank Tony Kanaan for recommending Hoka, because I might not have found them otherwise. 

IMG_7451

IMG_7538

My next favorite is a candy favorite and it’s the Hershey’s Cookies and Creme bar. Cookies and creme is one of my favorite flavor combos, and I’ve always liked the Hershey bars but they’ve been revamped and now have more cookie pieces which make it that much better. Definitely recommend.

IMG_7558 

My second to last favorite is a racing favorite and it’s an event that took place last weekend, Funny Car Chaos. I watched the live stream of the race and it was so fun to see so many Funny Cars show up to qualify and race, every round was great, the races were close and it was a great event to watch. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month it’s Eric Clapton, in March I spend a lot of time listening to Eric because it’s his birthday month and while I listen to him regularly in general, but it’s definitely more in March. 

That abut wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your March favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great March :).

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup Look

Hi everyone,

Today I have one of my favorite posts to do, a makeup looks post! This one is going to focus on the look I did recently for St. Patrick’s Day. I always like to do fun and festive looks and for holidays like St. Patrick’s Day I feel like there’s so many possibilities, which I love, and I really like the way this look turned out.

Starting with the base of my face, the first thing I did was prime using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything using the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

For the rest of my face I first bronzed using the Nars bronzer in Laguna, then I applied my Too Faced blush in Makeup & Be Merry and Too Faced highlighter in Angel Kisses.

The first thing I did for my eyes was prime and for that I used the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. So for this look I wanted to use multiple greens, so in total I used four different eyeshadow palettes. The first one I went into is the Mini Pro Pigment Palette Vol 2 from the ABH/Norvina Collection and from that I used the green that’s in the middle of the top row, A2, and that is a matte lime green. I took that and put it in the crease. Then I went into the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette and I used Theme Park which is a really pretty matte emerald-ish green and I put that in the crease as well and brought it down a little bit to the outer corner of the eye. For the outer corner specifically I wanted a dark shadow that was still green, so I went into one of the e.l.f. Bite Size Eyeshadow Palettes, Hot Jalapeno, and used the dark green. It’s like a gray green and I packed that on the outer corner and brought it in just a little bit. For the rest of my eye I knew I wanted a sparkly gold, but I didn’t just want any gold, so I looked through different palettes and ended up going with the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Palette and the shade Kiss & Caramel. This is a really pretty medium gold and it’s super buildable. I then took Theme Park and the gray green from Hot Jalapeno and blended those under my eye and brought them about halfway, then used Kiss & Caramel for the other half and in the inner corner of my eye. I used the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper to line my eyes and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. I wanted a neutral/brown lip to offset all the color on my eyes, so I first lined my lips using the Beauty Vaulte Lip Liner in Kozy Kira then used the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Venus and I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

That about wraps it up for this post, if you did a fun makeup look for St. Patrick’s Day I’d love to see what you did. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many green eyeshadows :).

March BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my March box from BoxyCharm, and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Boxy Lucky, which is perfect because St. Patrick’s Day is on the 17th.

IMG_7540

So the first product we have is the Lime Crime Venus 3 Eyeshadow Palette. This is a really pretty palette, it has Venus herself on the front with pink hair, the background is lavender and it has a rose gold boarder around it. 

IMG_7542

You get a decent sized mirror with this palette and the mirror has a rose gold boarder around it as well. 

IMG_7543

So this is an 8 pan palette, and there are a range of lilac, rose gold, mauve and browns. There are also five, yes five, finishes, matte, foil, sparkly matte, sparkly metallic and metallic. 

IMG_7544

The first shade we have is Dreamy, a matte mauve. Next to that is Beam, which is a light lilac that has a pinky shift to it, then there’s Heavenly, a really pretty rose gold and the last shade in the row is Rapture, a light-ish blush/pink shade that has a little bit of shimmer to it. 

IMG_7554

The second row starts with Ecstasy, a matte deep purple/brown. Then there’s Paradise, which is so gorgeous and I can’t wait to see on the eye, but it’s a bright fuchsia that has a little sparkle to it. Next to that is Bliss, which is a matte rosy shade and the last shadow in the row is Beloved, which is a metallic, it’s a unique shade that I had to Google to double check, I was being accurate about, but I would call it a mink/brown. It’s a very pretty shade though. 

IMG_7555

The next product we have is the Too Faced Damn Girl! Mascara. This is my choice item for the month and it’s one of my all time favorite mascaras. This has a very creamy formula that doesn’t run or smudge. The brush is on the fluffier side so it coats all of your lashes and it gives you a ton of volume and length without feeling heavy or flaking. This is a mascara I always recommend. 

IMG_7545

IMG_7547

Next up we have the KAB Cosmetics Lip Oil in Blue Raspberry. This is exactly what it says, a lip oil that is supposed to hydrate your lips and it comes in six different tints. I have to be honest here, because I always like to be transparent with my feelings when it comes to product reviews, this is a do not pass go, do not collect $200 situation. I know that people tend to be trusting of a brand or think it’s going to be super great when it comes from someone they’ve seen on a tv show, but there’s been controversy behind KAB and from my experience with this brand and other brands like it I would say stay away, but if you are interested in it I would recommend doing your research just like you would with any other brand. With this product in particular, the packaging has a really cheap feel to it, it doesn’t smell good, I also question the color choice, and I think it’s overpriced. It’s $20.00, and for that, lower and slightly higher, you can get much better quality lip oils. 

IMG_7548

IMG_7549

The second to last product we have is the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. I was 50/50 when I saw this, on one hand I love a good setting spray but on the other hand I don’t love the smell of rose in beauty or skincare products. I like roses as a flower, but the essence of rose I do not like. But I smelled this and it smells really good, so I’m excited to try it out. This is supposed to be aura lifting, packed with antioxidents and says it will prevent smudging and lock in your look for up to 16 hours.

And the last product we have is the Lavish Wet Brush Cleaning System. This is a brush cleaner that comes with a bar of soap, a silicone cleaning pad and a little tin to store it all in. From what I can smell through the packaging, the little soap smells really good, which is always a plus. I was just thinking about how I need to buy another brush cleaner, so this came at the perfect time. I have another product from Lavish, the dry brush cleaner and I love it, so I’m interested to try this out.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my April box :).

February Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! As it’s the end of the month, I thought that it would be the perfect time do my February favorites. I have a good and fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my February BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Ace Beaute Nostalgia palette. This is a 15 pan palette, you get a mix of mattes and metallics and the color range is great. I’m having a lot of fun with this palette, all of the shadows are nicely pigmented, you get a great color payoff and they blend really nicely. I definitely recommend this if you want a fun palette.

My next Boxy favorite is the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek. This is a double layer balm that can be used on the lips and the cheeks. The first layer is a nice light pink that builds really nicely and blends well and that is in the shade Rendezvous. The second layer is a shimmer free balm that gives a nice glow and hydration and that is in the shade Swipe. You also get a little mirror on the second layer, making this perfect to throw in your bag. I personally like this more for the lips than the cheeks, but from when I tested it on the cheeks it did look and feel nice.

My second to last beauty favorite and last Boxy favorite is the Saint Luxe Beauty Limited Edition Liner Duo. This is a set of two brown toned lip liners, the first Love Letter, is what I would call a lighter cinnamon brown and the second, Secret Admirer, is a darker more chocolate brown. These are really smooth and creamy when you apply them and they’re long wearing. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for brown liners.

And my last beauty favorite is my Valentine’s Day makeup look. I did a post all about this look, how I did it and the looks I did leading up to Valentine’s Day, which I’ll link below. I like this look a lot, it’s bright and fun and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Moving on I have a fashion favorite, and it’s my Valentine’s Day outfit. I usually like to wear something in some shade of pink, this year it was really cold and snowy, so I thought this was the perfect time to wear the cropped sweater I got for Christmas. I think it’s adorable and it paired well with the makeup look I did.

My next favorite is weather favorite and it’s the snow we got. I always want snow during the winter months and we don’t always get it, but we did for a couple days and it was really fun.

Moving on I have a food favorite and it’s this Honey Mustard Snack Mix from Costco. This has five different things in it, honey mustard and onion pretzel pieces, seasoned almond poppers, honey roasted sesame sticks, honey roasted almond splits and savory chickpeas. These are so, so good, the pretzel pieces are my favorite. I definitely recommend these if you’re looking for a good snack.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month I had a little playlist of love songs and such for Valentine’s Day and I really liked it. It had Take That, Eric Clapton, The Doobie Brothers, Little Mix and more. I think themed playlists are so fun, and if it’s not something you do already, I would recommend it. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your February favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great February :).
