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 :).

e.l.f. MintMelt Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post, we’re going to be reviewing one of the new e.l.f. MintMelt Eyeshadow palettes. The new e.l.f. Mint Collection has a ton of great stuff in it, and I’m probably going to be trying out a few more things, but the thing that caught my eye immediately was the MintMelt Eyeshadow palettes. There are two of these, Chocolate Mint and Mint To Be, they’re the same size as the Bite Size Eyeshadow palettes so you get 4 shadows and they are $4.00 each.

IMG_7245

This is the Mint To Be palette, it has two shimmers and two mattes. 

IMG_7246

I really like the color story in this palette, cool toned palettes are always nice to add to the collection. 

IMG_7247

So the first shadow we have is a sparkly mint green. This is really pretty and I think it would look really pretty on. Next to that is a really light sparkly green that has a little bit of white/silver in it. Then there’s a matte light mint, I really like this shadow, I think it’s going to look really nice on. And the last shadow in the palette is a gray/green. Sometimes gray/greens tend to look a little muddy, but this one seems like it’s nicely mixed and it swatched nicely. 

IMG_7248

 I have to say that based off of the swatches alone I’m not the most excited about this palette. I do think it’s so pretty and I had such high hopes for it, but when I swatched the shimmers, I really had to dig in to get them to show up. I’m not used to that with e.l.f. palettes, normally the formulation of the mattes and shimmers is fantastic but these shimmers didn’t hold up to what I’m used to. I am still going to use it, and the mattes were smooth and nicely formulated. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve tried anything from the Mint Collection I’d love to know what and what you thought of it. 

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

Blogmas Day Eleven: 3 Recent Holiday Looks

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be showing you 3 festive looks that I’ve done during December. I already have my Christmas Day Makeup figured out, but if you don’t, hopefully this post will give you a little inspiration.

The first look I did was gold. I have quite a few gold shadows I could’ve used, but I went with a bold gold. 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 and my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory. And set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.

IMG_6883

For the rest of my face I first bronzed and to do that I used the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then went into the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee for my blush and highlighter. This blush is a nice light/medium pink and it’s nicely buildable. And the highlighter is a nice gold with a little bit of rosiness. 

 

IMG_6885

IMG_6887

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime and to do that I used the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. Then I went into the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and the first thing I did was take the matte nude shade and put it all over my lid. Then I took a light brown and put it in the crease. I then used a dark chocolaty brown and packed that on the outer corner of the eye and brought it a little bit into the crease. For the rest of my eye I applied the bright gold. I then took that chocolatey brown under my eye and brought it about two-thirds of the way in and put the gold on the remaining third and in the inner corner of my eye. I then lined my eyes using the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume mascara. Because it’s the holidays all of these looks feature red lipstick and for this look I used the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red and I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

IMG_6886

IMG_6888

IMG_6780

For the second look I wanted to do something fun and a little bit over the top, so I went with green. For my face I used the same products as the first look with the exception of the powder. For this look I used the Ofra Cosmetics Banana Powder

IMG_6884

For the rest of my face I started with bronzer and for that I used the Benefit Hoola bronzer. For my blush and highlighter I used the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo palette in Lychee. 

IMG_6889

IMG_6890

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime and for that I used the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and I put the nude shadow all over my lids. Then I put a light brown shadow in the crease, just to have a background shade and a little bit of depth. Then I applied the shimmery emerald green all over my lid. It’s such a pretty color and translates really well from pan to eye. To mix it up a little I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party palette and from that took Nooks & Cranberries, a matte red shade, and put that under the entirety of my eye and then put the white shimmery shade form the e.l.f. palette in the inner corner of my eye. To line my eyes I used the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black and topped off the eyes with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips I applied the MAC Matte Lipstick in 612, Russian Red. And I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. 

IMG_6896

IMG_6891

IMG_6863

And for the third look I wanted to do something that mixed a couple of colors so I went with a red and gold look. For my face, I used the same products that I used in the first look. 

IMG_6883

For the rest of my face I applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty Bronzer, Too Faced Daydreamer Blush and e.l.f. highlighter in Lychee. 

IMG_6892

IMG_6894

For my eyes I first primed using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. Then I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party palette and took the nude shade, Cream Filling, and put it all over my eye. I then went into Nooks & Cranberries and put it in the crease lightly, then I packed it on the outer corner and the inner corner of my eye. In the middle I left a space and put Icing On Top, it’s a very pretty gold. To line my eyes I used the Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer and I topped it off with the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. I applied the YSL Tatouage Couture in 5 Rosewood Gang on my lips and set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have done any festive looks this season I’d love to know what they are.

Blogmas Day Seven: Christmas Day Makeup

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Seven! Today I’m going to be showing you my Christmas Day makeup. Christmas Day for me is a very chill day, no real dressing up, just leggings and comfy clothes but I do like to do a fun makeup look. I did go back and forth between a few different look ideas, and I’m happy with the one I chose.

For this look the first thing I did was prime my face, and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is nicely hydrating and gives you a good glow under your foundation. The next thing I did was apply my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory and my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory. To set all of that I used the Ofra Cosmetics Banana Powder.

IMG_6836

For the rest of my face I started by bronzing with the Benefit Hoola bronzer. Then I used the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee for my blush and highlight. The blush is a light/medium pink, it’s very buildable and the highlight is gold with a little bit of rosiness to it. 

IMG_6837

IMG_6839

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went in to the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and first used the matte nude shadow all over my eyes. Then I used the matte medium brown shade in the crease and the dark chocolate brown shade a little bit in the crease and packed on the outer corner of my eye. For the rest of the lid I used the neutral shimmer and packed it on and on top of that I used the bright shimmery white, for some extra sparkle. I then took the chocolate brown and put it under my eye about 2/3 of the way and from there up to the inner corner I applied the neutral shimmer. For the actual inner corner I put just a little bit of the white shimmer and I also put some of that on my brown bone. I lined my eyes using the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater mascara. I’m currently testing out this mascara and so far I’m liking it. I wanted to do red lipstick, so for this look I used the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red and I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. 

IMG_6838

IMG_6840

IMG_6835

That about wraps it up for this post, I’m interested to know what your Christmas Day is like. Are you like me where you do a fun makeup look or do you just chill and not bother with it?

Until next time, have fun with your Christmas Day beauty and I hope you’re enjoying Blogmas :).

Blogmas Day Three: Red Lipstick and Liner Collection

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Three! As one of the essentials for the holiday season is red lipstick, I thought it would be fun to show you my current collection of red liners and lipsticks.

IMG_6740

Starting with liners, the one red liner I have is the Beauty Vaulte liner in Natty Nat. As far as tone, this is a pretty true and classic red that goes with a lot of the lipsticks in my collection, but I also really like it as and all over lip color. 

IMG_6741

IMG_6742

IMG_6743

Going into lipsticks, the first one we have is the NYX Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Red Haute. This is a nice warm red. These lipsticks are nicely pigmented and are infused with mango and shea butter so you get 4 hours of hydration. 

IMG_6744

IMG_6745

IMG_6746

Moving on, the next lipstick we have is the e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet. This is a lipstick that I’ve repurchased many times over the years. This is really rich and creamy when you put it on and the color is very vibrant. e.l.f. lipsticks have a great formula and I always recommend them if someone is looking for a good drugstore lipstick. 

IMG_6747

IMG_6748

IMG_6749

Next up we have the Sephora Collection Matte Lipstick in 23-Cabin Fever/23-After Hours. This is a darker red and I really like it. It’s so pigmented and long lasting and during the holidays and during college football season, this is a lipstick I wear a lot. 

IMG_6750

IMG_6751

IMG_6752

Next up we have the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple. Bite Beauty did discontinue their Amuse Bouche lipsticks, I believe it was to reformulate and from what I understand they’re supposed to be relaunching sometime soon. I have quite a few of the Amuse Bouche lipsticks and I really like the formulation and pigmentation of them all. This one is a darker red, ever so slightly than the SC Cabin Fever, and it’s so pretty. 

IMG_6753

IMG_6754

IMG_6755

The last of the bullet lipsticks is the MAC Matte Lipstick in 640, Red Rock. This is the first MAC lipstick I’ve had and when I was shopping for it there was no question in my mind that I had to buy a red because MAC does red so well. This shade in particular is a really classic, true red and it’s just so good in every way. 

IMG_6756

IMG_6757

IMG_6758

The second to last lipstick we have is the YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Lip Stain in 5-Rosewood Gang. This is a lip stain so it’s a little bit lighter and I do like to layer it, but it stands up well to that and doesn’t get gloppy. Color wise this looks red on me, but it does have some pink/purple undertones. I’m actually running low and I need to pick up another one. 

IMG_6759

IMG_6760

IMG_6761 (1)

And the last lipstick we have is the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. This is a liquid lipstick in a matte finish with shea butter that is super pigmented. This lipstick feels very light on the lips, which I appreciate and I do like the cushion applicator. 

IMG_6762

IMG_6763

IMG_6764

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have any of the same lipsticks let me know which and if not I’d love to know what your favorite red lipstick is for the holidays :).

Blogmas Day Two: Black Friday Haul

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Two! Today we’re going to be doing a Black Friday haul. I did a bit of shopping during Black Friday and Cyber Monday and most of it was Christmas gifts for others, so the few things that I bought for myself is what I’m going to be showing you today.

IMG_6722

You’ll notice that I included the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette in this picture and that’s because I did buy it during a pre-Black Friday sale and originally this post was supposed to be the first one of Blogmas, but I was still waiting for a few things to be delivered so I swapped the posts. I will link yesterday’s post below if you haven’t read it. 

IMG_6715

IMG_6716

Sticking with the theme of makeup, I picked up one of the Too Faced Twinkle Twinkle Liquid Glitter Eyeshadows. This one is in the shade Candied Rose. These are high shine, multi-dimensional liquid glitter eyeshadows that give you great color payoff, but they dry down really quickly and are really long lasting. These are on sale right now on the Too Faced website for $5.50, so get them now if you want one. I know I’m going to be getting a few more. 

 

IMG_6728

IMG_6727

IMG_6729

Moving to skincare, I picked up a few things from Sephora and the Sephora Collection. I really like the SC face masks, so I picked up a trio. 

IMG_6723

The first one I got is the Watermelon After Sun Mask. This comes with a face mask and a decollete mask and is for quenching and tan perfecting. This one isn’t exactly a winter mask, but I do like to keep the after sun masks in face mask drawer just to have them. 

IMG_6724

The next mask is a Lychee face mask that is Ultra Moisturizing and Brightening. I haven’t tried the lychee SC face mask before, but I do love a brightening and moisturizing mask, especially in the winter so I’m excited to try this one. 

IMG_6725

And the last one I got is a Charcoal Nose Strip. I don’t actually do nose strips that often, but I do like the charcoal ones. They’re really purifying and I think they work the best. 

IMG_6726

And the last thing I bought is a blanket, but not just any blanket, a super plush and oversized blanket. I got this at Kohl’s and they had a huge selection in terms of pattern and I picked this geometric blue one. 

IMG_6730

They weren’t wrong when they said super plush and oversized. This is probably the softest blanket I own and it’s the perfect thickness for a blanket this cozy. 

IMG_6732

In terms of size, it’s 5ft by 6ft and you can comfortably use the short side of it. 10/10 recommend if you’re looking for a blanket for yourself or as a gift for someone. 

IMG_6731

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys picked up anything during Black Friday, I’d love to know what you got. 

Until next time, have fun shopping and I hope you’re enjoying Blogmas so far :).

Blogmas Day One: e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Day One of the Twelve Days of Blogmas! This is one of my favorite things, as stressful as it can be, and I’m happy it’s that time of year once again.

This time we’re kicking off Blogmas 2020 with a review of something from the e.l.f. 2020 Holiday Collection, the Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette. I have a couple of the Haute Chocolate Eyes palettes, so I was excited to see a new one.

IMG_6714

This is a 15 pan palette with a mix of mattes, satins and shimmers and it’s $10.00. 

IMG_6715

My first impression of this palette just by looking at it is that it has some really pretty shimmers and it seems like a versatile palette. 

IMG_6716

I swatched this in rows of five, as it shows in the palette. The first shadow we have is light nude, next to that is a really pretty gold shimmer. It’s a more yellow gold and I like it a lot, it’s going to be a good shade for a lot of looks. Then there’s a sparkly emerald green, I’ve been looking through the green shadows that I have to get some inspiration for festive looks and I think this is going to be a great green for those looks. Next to that is a matte rusty/brown shade. And the last shade in the row is a matte light-ish orange, I don’t wear a whole lot of straight up orange shadow during December, but with this palette, I can see a few looks already that it would still be festive. 

IMG_6717

The second row starts with a shimmer and it’s kind of a hard shade to describe. It’s almost a rose gold, but it’s deeper. It’s super pretty though. Next to that is a matte light brown shadow, this is going to be perfect for in the crease and to create depth. Then there’s another matte brown, but this one is slightly darker. Next to that is a matte orange, this one is a darker orange than the other and it really pops. It was slightly patchy when I swatched it, but I’m interested to see how it works on the eye. And the last shade in the row is a really glittery shadow. This is more of a neutral/light brown and this is one that you could use as a shadow on it’s own or as a topper. 

IMG_6718

The last row starts with a shimmery brown shadow that is really nice and would be great for a number of looks. Next to that is a gorgeous orangey/pink that is not only super pretty, but really glittery. This reminds me a lot of another shadow that I really like, so I’m excited to wear this one. Then there’s a matte chocolatey brown. Next to that is a burgundy shimmer. I have seen this color in so many palette this year, it’s been an incredibly popular. And the last shadow in the row is a very glittery white. This is a shadow that I personally would use as a topper or a highlight in the inner corner/on the brow bone. It’s so pretty and not a pure white, it has a mix of blue and purple glitters mixed in with it so it really has that winter/snow feel. I think that with the exception of one shade, these are all really pigmented and creamy. The e.l.f. eyeshadow formula is really nice.

IMG_6719

That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys have this palette let me know what you think of it and if you’ve purchased anything from the e.l.f. 2020 Holiday Collection I’d love to know what you got. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and welcome to Blogmas :).

Three Recent Looks, Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing one of my favorite type of posts, a three recent looks. And today we’re focusing on looks I did with the Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Palette. This palette is really bright and fun, so I’ve a lot of fun creating with it.

The first look we have is the first look I did with the palette and I wanted to use the brightest shades to see how they would perform. I will admit that I did something that I shouldn’t have when creating this look and I almost went back to recreate it in a better way, but I didn’t. If I do this look again though I will make some changes. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I went in with my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory. Next I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes and a few other places and I set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach.

IMG_6505

For the rest of my face the first thing I did was bronze using my Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then used the Too Faced Daydreamer blush and highlighted with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold

IMG_6507

IMG_6513

For my eyes, the first thing I did prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow primer. Then I went in with Ay Que Cute, a matte light pink that has slight rosy undertones and I put that in the crease. Then I applied Ponte Hyper, a matte hot pink/fuchsia to the outer corner and I brought it up a little bit into the crease. For the rest of my eye I applied Guao, a darker purple metallic. I brought a little bit of Ponte Hyper under my eye and put just a dab of Guao in the inner corner of my eye. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper, then applied the Benefit They’re Real mascara. After I saw the eye look I decided to go full on 80’s Barbie, so for my lips I first lined them with the Sephora Collection Lip Liner To Go in 09 Fuchsia and on top of that used the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Glam Bag. I set the entire look with the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray

IMG_6508

IMG_6515

IMG_6372

For the second look I wanted to use the more neutral shades in the palette and I ended up with the perfect fall look. 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. Used my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper. 

IMG_6506

For the rest of my face I first bronzed with the Benefit Hoola bronzer. Then I applied the blush and highlighter from the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee

IMG_6509

IMG_6516

When it came to my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later primer. The first shadow I applied was Jajaja, a matte light-medium brown and I used just the tiniest bit in the crease. Then I applied Muy Excited, a matte burnt orange that has some brown undertones. I put that on the outer corner of my eye and brought it up a little bit into the crease. For the rest of my eye I used Pero Like, a peachy/orange metallic with some gold glitter. I brought a little bit of Muy Excited under my eye and put Pero Like in the inner corner of the my eye. I then lined my eyes using the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and applied the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume mascara. Because this was a fall look I wanted to go with a brown lip, so I first lined my lips with the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02, Nothin’ But Nude and on top of that put the Too Faced Peach Kiss Comfort Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Sex On The Peach. I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

IMG_6510

IMG_6517

IMG_6388

The third look I did is basically a “more wearable” version of the first look I did. So the first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. I then applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper. 

IMG_6505

For the rest of my face I first applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. Then I applied the Model Co Peach Bellini blush and Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. 

IMG_6511

IMG_6518

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later primer. Then I went into Ay Que Cute and put that in the crease. On top of that I put a tiny amount of Ponte Hyper, just to deepen it up a little. For the rest of my eye I applied Eres Un Show, a lavender metallic. I brought a little bit of Ay Que Cute and Ponte Hyper under my eye and put Eres Un Show in the inner corner of my eye. I lined my eyes using the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and applied the Too Faced Damn Girl mascara. For my lips I first lined them with the Sephora Collection Lip Liner To Go in 09 Fuchsia and on top of that used the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Let’s Go Crazy. And I set the whole look with the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray.

IMG_6512

IMG_6519

IMG_6400

That about wraps it up for this post, I have another one of these posts planned for November, so be on the lookout for that. If any of you have this palette let me know what you think of it and 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 :).

e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo Review

Hi everyone, 

Recently e.l.f. brought out a new product in the form of their Bite Size Face Duos. These are very similar to the Bite Size Eyeshadow Palettes, but for your face. A little info on the Face Duos; there are 8 colors to choose from, they come in blush and highlighter or bronzer and highlighter, there is a mix of shimmer and matte shades, the colors in each duo compliment each other and the shade range is pretty big for only having 8 palettes. And one of these will run you $3.00. 

This is what each palette looks like and for being bite size the pan size is decent. 

IMG_6127

I bought one just to see how I liked it and I got mine in the shade Lychee.

IMG_6122

I really like this shade for blush, it’s a lightish pink and I’ve found that it’s very buildable. It’s been a long time since I’ve worn an e.l.f. blush and this one is very smooth and nicely pigmented. Initially I wasn’t sure what to think about the highlighter because this is my first experience with an e.l.f highlighter, but I do like it. This one is in a nice lighter gold that has a little bit of rosiness to it. It’s not the most pigmented highlighter ever, but it does build nicely and it’s very pretty when the light hits it.

I know that I won’t buy all of the other shades because I won’t use them, but I’ll buy at least one or two more. If you’re wanting a new face palette in general or you’re looking for one to pop in your handbag, I would recommend these.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve purchased one of these let me know which and if you haven’t but are going to I’d love to know which one. 

Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many face palettes :).

June Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the last day of the month, I thought today would be the perfect time to do my June favorites. There were so many things I tried and liked this month, but didn’t include because I have them set aside for other posts. I do think I still have a pretty good mix though, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my June BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it. My first Boxy favorite is the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm. This is a very hydrating primer that leaves your skin super smooth and gives you a lasting glow. I like that it’s enough of a glow that you can see it under foundation but it’s not too much. If you want more of a glow you can apply multiple layers of it to build it up. It also sinks in to the skin pretty quickly and it smells really good.

My next Boxy favorite is the Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Coco Bling. This is a loose highlighting powder that has a good amount of shimmer and pigment. This comes in a bunch of different shades, but Coco Bling is a light silver. I find this to be great for face and body and it’s very buildable. I don’t have any other highlighters in this shade or tone, so I’m really enjoying this.

My last Boxy favorite is the Beauty Vaulte Circadian Lip Liner Trio. I really like these. I’ve worn all three of them as liners and as all over lip colors, they go on really smooth and creamy and they have great staying power.

The first one we have is Kozy Kira and it’s a nice medium brown, this is a brown shade that I didn’t already have as a liner, and I’m glad I do now because it goes with so many of my brown lipsticks.

Then we have Beau Babe and this is a rusty brown. This is a perfect match for the Too Faced Gingerbread Man Melted Matte Lipstick.

Then we have Natty Nat. This is a deep red and it’s a really good red, I like it a lot.

And my last beauty favorite is the e.l.f. Bite Size palette in Cream & Sugar. This has a nice range of light to dark neutral mattes and shimmers. These are colors I tend to gravitate towards when doing a neutral look and I’ve already gotten a lot of use out of it.

Moving on I have a couple of fashion favorites. The first is a black and white American flag shirt from Tactical Pro Supply. I always buy myself new America gear, so I have options not only for July 4th, but for any time of the year. Tactical Pro Supply is a veteran owned company who donates a portion of their proceeds to a charity that’s important to them and I really like that. This shirt in particular is black with a white flag on the back that’s sitting in a cool way, a flag on the right arm and an eagle on the left side on the front.

My second fashion favorite is a Team Penske hoodie. Now that racing is slowly but surely starting back up, I thought it was time to treat myself to some new gear. I’m always rooting for the Penske cars in IndyCar and IMSA, and I have so much respect for Roger, I mean he’s The Captain for a reason. But I didn’t have gear to support, so I went to the website and found quite a few things that I’ll probably go back and purchase at some point, but I liked this hoodie a lot. It’s dark grey with the red line and ‘Team Penske’ written in white. It’s so soft on the inside and it keeps me warm and cozy but it’s also really light so I can wear it all year. Additionally it has the holes for your thumbs, which I like.

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s Let Me Love You Baby by B.B. King and Eric Clapton. This is the second previously unreleased song from their album Riding With The King. This song is straight up two blues masters doing what they do best and it’s just so good. I highly recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t heard it.

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

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