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 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 :).

KVD Vegan Beauty Legendary Icons Review

Hi everyone,

Happy 2021! For my first post of the year, I thought it would be fun to do a review of something I picked up during at Sephora after Christmas, the KVD Vegan Beauty Legendary Icons Set.

IMG_7042

This set comes with three items, two of which are full size and one is a mini. 

IMG_7043

The first product we have is the Tattoo Liner Waterproof Liquid Liner in Trooper. This is one of my favorite eyeliners. It has a fine tip so you can get a precise line, but you can also get a thicker line if that’s what you’re looking for. This dries down quickly, stays in place and lasts all day. 

IMG_7044

Next we have the Go Big Or Go Home Volumizing Mascara in Trooper. This is a long wearing, smudge resistant mascara that is supposed to give you extreme volume. This has a pretty decent wand on it that looks like it will coat all of your lashes. I’ve heard really good things about this mascara, so I’m excited to try it. 

IMG_7045

And the last product in this set is a mini Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. I really like the formulation of the Everlasting Liquid lipsticks. They’re light on the lips and don’t make your lips feel dry, they’re nicely pigmented and are long lasting. This shade in particular is a brown with pink undertones and the color range of these lipsticks is pretty big. 

IMG_7046

IMG_7047

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have this set let me know which product is your favorite and if not I’d love to know what your favorite KVD product is. 

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

November Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month I’m going to be doing my November favorites. Even though I feel like this month absolutely flew by, I have a pretty good mix of favorites so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my November BoxyCharm box and if you haven’t read that, I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Natasha Denona Peak Palette. This is an exclusive, five pan palette for BoxyCharm and it has all of the colors of fall. All of these shades comes from the Safari, Sunrise and and Biba palettes. I’ve done a few looks with this palette so far and I really like it. All the shades are really smooth, very pigmented and blend really nicely.

IMG_6596

IMG_6597

IMG_6598

This is the look I did with the palette on Thanksgiving. I’m really happy with how it came out. 

IMG_6681

My second Boxy favorite is the Bodyography Eye Pencil Duo. These pencils are infused with coconut oil and they glide on nicely. You do get a nice crisp line with these but you can also easily smudge them. I got mine in the shades Onyx and Black Walnut. Onyx isn’t the blackest black but it does add depth and pulls together a look and Black Walnut is a very dark brown that is great for smoking out a more neutral look. 

IMG_6599

IMG_6600

IMG_6601

And my last beauty favorite is from the Fall Walmart beauty box. It’s the Gold Bond Ultimate Strength and Resilience lotion. This is a really good lotion for this time of year because it has seven plumping moisturizers, three vitamins, proteins and lipids. So it keeps your skin radiant and moisturized. 

IMG_6665

Moving on I have a holiday favorite and it’s Thanksgiving. Even though Thanksgiving was a little different this year I still really enjoyed it. I did glam from the waist up but had leggings and slippers on which I don’t normally do. But overall it was a very chill day and I still managed to eat too much food. 

My second to last favorite is a Twitch stream and it’s Tony Kanaan’s Twitch stream. I didn’t really know that TK was on Twitch until I saw a tweet from him saying that he was live and since then I’ve only missed a few streams. It’s genuinely such a fun environment to be in, he’s really interactive with his chat and I laugh so much when I’m in his stream. If you’re looking for a race car driver or iRacing stream to watch on Twitch I definitely recommend checking his stream out. And if you see me in chat say hi. 

And my last favorite, a music favorite, is AC/DC’s new album Power Up (PWR UP as it’s written on the album cover). There was a lot of hype behind this album and it’s definitely lived up to all the hype. It’s very much like a classic AC/DC album, in the sound and style and it’s just a feel good album. It’s what the world needed right now for sure. If you haven’t heard it yet, I definitely recommend giving it a listen. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to mention because I haven’t that I am doing Blogmas again this year and I’m excited about it, so look out for those posts. If we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

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

Limited Edition Halloween Walmart Beauty Box Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I have a different unboxing, a Halloween beauty box. I haven’t done a holiday beauty box unboxing before so when I saw this I knew I had to buy it. This box comes from Walmart Beauty and you may or may not know that after the spring Walmart Beauty Box they decided to take off the summer to revamp the box. So I guess this is the intro to that relaunch, although I did get an email a few days ago saying that this week I’m going to charged for the fall box, so the fall boxes are coming. This box in particular cost me $10.00, which is double the price of the normal WBB, and came with a little pamphlet that gave a description of each of the items. I got to choose between two, both had the same base items but one came with an eyeliner and the other with a lipstick. I chose the eyeliner option because I knew I would get more use out of it and I haven’t worn a drugstore eyeliner in years so I wanted to try one out.

The box itself is all white with a white Walmart logo on the top and it’s white on the inside as well. Because this is the Halloween box I was hoping for a pop of orange, black or purple or even some festive tissue paper.

IMG_6479

IMG_6480 (1)

The first item we have in this box is the Splat Hair Chalk in Midnight Blue. This is basically hair dye but not, you take pieces of hair, lightly spray with hair spray, open the color compact, close it around the hair and slide it down your hair. Depending on how dark you want the color to be you can go over the already colored pieces of hair. And to set it just spray more hair spray. I haven’t used anything like this since I was a kid, but it’s a quick and easy way to get color into your hair, the Splat Hair Chalks come in a variety of colors, and once you’re over the color it washes out easily. 

IMG_6481

The next item we have is a Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelette. This is a single, but you can get this individually wrapped towelettes in a bag of 20. I always keep these on hand, the fact that they’re individually wrapped makes it easy to keep in your handbag, which I do, and I also really like these for taking off swatches because they get all the makeup off. 

IMG_6483

Moving on we have a Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow quad. This is the product that confused me when I saw it. On the website and in the pamphlet it shows a purple quad, to me it looks like 510, Precocious, but what I actually received was 500, Addictive, a neutral/brown quad. If this is a Halloween box the purple makes perfect sense, but I’m not sure how you would get the same effect with neutrals/browns. I also haven’t worn Revlon eyeshadow since I was in junior high, so I couldn’t tell you now how these shadows are going to perform. Normally I would do some swatches, but I’m going to give this to someone and I want it to be fresh for them. 

IMG_6484

Next up we have the Hard Candy Stroke of Gorgeous Liquid Eyeliner in 1807, Black To Basic. This is a matte eyeliner that says it’s easy to apply, mess free and dries down quickly. I’ve only tried Hard Candy lipsticks and nail polishes, so I’m interested to try this out and see how it performs. This has a nice tip on it and it seems like you could easily do thick or thin liner. I saw that this liner comes in different colors, so if I like it I might look into the other shades. 

IMG_6488

IMG_6489

Moving on we have the Milani Strobelight Liquid Highlighter in 06, 24K Gold. When they say gold, they mean gold. I do like liquid highlighters and when I saw this I was interested because I haven’t tried one from Milani. I think for me this might be a little too gold, but the formula seems nice and when the light hits it it is quite pretty. 

IMG_6491

IMG_6492

IMG_6500

The second to last item we have is the NYX Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Red Haute. I’ve heard great things about the NYX Satin Lipsticks and based on the swatch I can see why. This is a really pretty shade of red and seems to be nicely pigmented. It claims to deliver up to four hours of hydration in one swipe, which I’ll be looking for when I wear it. All of the Shout Out Loud satins are infused with mango and shea butter and have a heart stamped into them which I think is adorable. 

IMG_6493

IMG_6494

IMG_6495

IMG_6501

And the last item we have is a Sinful Colors nail polish. This is the second thing that I saw that confused me. On the website and in the pamphlet it shows what looks to be a deeper sparkly red polish, maybe Sugar Sugar, and that’s one of the things that drew me in. But the polish I got was 852, Gogo Girl. I do like this polish, in fact I own this polish and it’s on my nails right now. It’s a nice shade of red and like the other Sinful Colors polishes it wears well. 

IMG_6499

IMG_6497

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I think it was alright. I was disappointed by a few things, but I’m really interested to see what the revamped seasonal boxes look like. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and have fun creating Halloween looks :).

Recent Makeup Look-Easter 2020 Edition

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you the makeup look that I did for Easter and how I did it. For this look I wanted something fun with pastels and I’m really happy with the way it came out.

So the first thing I did for this look was prime my face using the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This gives a great subtle glow under foundation. Then I went in with my foundation, the 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 I wanted more coverage. And I topped that off with the KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It translucent setting powder.

IMG_5377

For the rest of my face I started with bronzer and used the Too Faced Extra Toasty, this is a lighter brown and it has a nice amount of pigment and it blends really nicely. I then used the Model Co blush in Peach Bellini, this has a little bit of shimmer and shine and isn’t too pink and I highlighted with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. This is such a beautiful highlighter, it’s the perfect shade and it has a great pop when the light hits it without it being over the top. This is probably my favorite drugstore highlighter.

IMG_5378

IMG_5379

For my eyes I didn’t have a real plan going into it but a few shadows stood out and I went for it. The first thing I did though was prime them with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette and put Fresh all over my lid as a base. Next I used Bloom, which is a matte pinky coral, from the Sultry palette and packed that into the crease and blended. From there I went into the big palette from the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party and packed That’s My Jam, a berry toned purple, on the outer corner of my eye and a little bit into the crease to meet Bloom. On my lid I used I Love Yule, a really pretty pink with gold sparkles and I lightly dabbed Tinsel Town, an icy and sparkly purple/white, on top to bring all the colors together. Eyeliner wise I used and KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped off the eyes with the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. On my lips I applied a Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Queen B, a very pretty mauvey purple and set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5380

IMG_5381

IMG_5376

IMG_5372

That about wraps it up for this post, I always love doing posts like this so look out for more in the future and I’d love to know what your Easter makeup look was.

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

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my March favorites. It seems like this month has been 97 years long and there’s been a lot going on, but I hope you’re all doing well. I have a good group of favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below if you haven’t read it. My first Play favorite is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black. This is a product I used long ago and loved and now having used it a few times since getting it, I still love it. It glides on really smooth, there is room for error with this liner which you don’t always get and once it dries then it’s not smudging or going anywhere.

IMG_5323

My next Play favorite is the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides. I’ve been using this since I got it and I really like it. It’s a rich cream that sinks in quickly and because it is whipped, feels nice and light on the skin. It makes my skin really soft and it feels very moisturized. Definitely a moisturizer I would recommend if you’re looking for a new one.

IMG_5322

And my last Play favorite is the Versace Bright Crystal perfume. This is a really well balanced scent. It’s fruity and floral with the perfect hint of freshness. A great scent for spring and summer and I have ordered a full size of this perfume. If you haven’t smelled this and you get the chance, I say definitely do.

IMG_5324

My next two favorites come from the winter Walmart Beauty Box, which I’ll link down below, and the first is the Curel Dry Skin Therapy Hydra Skin Moisturizer. I use the Curel Wet Skin Moisturizer and love that so I had high hopes for this and it delivered. It sinks in to the skin quickly, leaves my skin feeling really moisturized but not greasy and has a nice almost citrusy scent.

IMG_5238

My other Walmart Beauty Box favorite is the Color Club Nail Lacquer in 1198, It’s Complicated. This is a really pretty, nicely pigmented magenta shade. The formula is nice, it goes on smooth and for me two coats was perfect. It also held up pretty well and lasted on my nails once it was on. This is a brand I hadn’t purchased from before but now I’m definitely going to see what other polishes they have.

IMG_5242

IMG_5243

IMG_5254

And my last beauty favorite is the e.l.f. Bite Size Shadow palette in Rose Water. This is a mix of pinks and purples. The shimmers are really nicely pigmented and creamy and the mattes are very smooth. I’ve talked about a few of these and I definitely recommend them, they’re great little palettes.

IMG_5201

IMG_5212 (1)

Moving on I have a drink favorite and it’s the Pure Leaf Raspberry Tea. Pure Leaf is always my go to if I want a good tea in a bottle and I typically stick with the same one or two, but I love raspberry tea so I decided to try it and I’m glad I did. I also saw that Pure Leaf has some new and different teas and I picked up a Peach Hibiscus to try, and I’m excited about that. It’s the perfect spring/summer tea flavor.

I want to quickly mention something that isn’t exactly a favorite because I just started watching last night, but I’m 3 episodes in to Tiger King on Netflix and holy wow. It’s already not what I expected. No spoilers, but I want to know if you guys are watching/have watched and what do you think?

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s AC/DC’s album Rock Or Bust. Something I’ve been doing recently is a deep dive into some of my favorite bands/musicians and listening to music of theirs that I haven’t heard or have forgotten about. It’s been a lot of fun. The songs on this album are pretty short, but in this case it works. Like most AC/DC songs the chorus’ are catchy and when you hear a riff you know it’s them you’re listening to. Overall great album. Speaking of musicians I like, I want to wish Slowhand himself, Eric Clapton a happy 75th birthday. I’m listening to music as I write this.

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 March favorites were.

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

Four Green Makeup Looks Of March 2020

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to talk about four makeup looks that I did this month that I had a lot of fun with. I was noticing that I have quite a few different green eyeshadows throughout different palettes, so during the week leading up to St. Patrick’s Day I did different looks using them and I’m really pleased with how they all turned out.

The first look we have is very simple. The first thing I did was prime my face using the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer, I’ve been using this primer for a while and I really like it. First Aid Beauty has a great range of products and all the ones I’ve tried have been great. Then I went in with my foundation, the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory. Then I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes and anywhere else I wanted more coverage. I topped that off with the KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Translucent setting powder.

IMG_5286

For the rest of my face I used one of my favorite bronzers, the Nars bronzing powder in Laguna. This is a nice lighter brown that’s really blendable and has a nice shimmer to it. Then I went in with a Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and highlighted using the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. This is one of my all time favorite highlighters, it’s a beautiful rose gold that really pops when the light hits it without being too over the top.

IMG_5287

IMG_5288

For my eyes I started off by covering them with a little concealer and then I went in with my eyeliner. I used the Lord & Berry Velluto eye pencil in 1808, Supreme Green. This is a deep green that is really pigmented and goes on nice and smooth. I topped that with the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, applied Colourpop Lippie Stix in Slacker, this is a gorgeous peachy/nude in a creme finish and set the look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5289

IMG_5290

IMG_5227

The next look is one that I found while scrolling through Pinterest and thought it would be really fun to try and recreate and I’m super happy with how it turned out.

For this look I started with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is something you can wear on it’s own, under foundation or you can use as a highlighter but I like it the best under foundation and it gives a nice subtle glow. I followed that with my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and I set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder. You get a nice smooth finish with this powder and it smells like peaches.

IMG_5291

For the rest of my face I applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, this too is a nice lighter brown that blends really nicely. Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_5292

IMG_5293

The eye look is where it gets fun. To start I applied the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer, then I went into the big palette from the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Collection and the first shadow I applied is Cream Filling, I used this as a base all over the eye. Then I went in to Oh Snap! And did that in the crease and a little bit on the outer corner of the eye. I wanted something with some sparkle that wasn’t too crazy so I went in to Icing On Top for my eyelid. It’s a gorgeous light rose gold. Then to bring in the green I went to the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar palette and put the deep sparkly green under my eye and for a little bit of pop I put a tiny bit of sparkly silver in the inner corner. Eyeliner wise I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Perversion and I topped off the eyes with the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. For my lips I used the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner, which is a great nude liner, and the Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Sex On The Peach. And set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5297

IMG_5328

IMG_5249 (1)

The second to last look I did is one that I do more often than any of the others and I think it’s a fun look.

To start I primed my face with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. Then I used my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder.

IMG_5299

For the rest of my face I went in first with the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, then with the Too Faced Daydreamer blush. This blush is a light/medium pink, it’s really pretty on and very buildable. Then I used the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

For my eyes I applied the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer then used the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Palette and the first shadow I used is a really light peachy/nude and I used that as a base all over the eye. Then I went in to a deep matte green and put that lightly in the crease and more heavily on the outer corner of the eye. And I used the sparkly silver on the lid. I applied the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped off the eyes with the Lancome Monsieur Big mascara, this does fantastic things for your lashes. I used the Nars Satin Lipstick in Tolede on my lips and set the look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

And the last look I did was for St. Patrick’s Day. I had a lot of fun with this one and it looked even brighter in person than in the photo.

I started this one with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow then used my Covergirl + Olay foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer and KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

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

For my eyes after applying the Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24+ Hour Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer I used that really light peachy/nude shadow from the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Palette as a base, then I went into the e.l.f. Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette in Hot Jalapeno and I used every shade. I first used that light matte green and put that in the crease. Then I used the dark matte green and put that a little bit in the crease but mostly on the outer corner of the eye. I put the bright sparkly gold on the lid and dabbed the light sparkly green on top of that. It made a really fun color mix. I used the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and finished the eyes with the Benefit BAD gal BANG! mascara. For my lips I applied the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude and the KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ludwig. And set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, I always really like doing these posts so look out for more in the future.

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

March 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my March Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Wild Beauty. These are must have products that will be great and work for you no matter what you’re doing. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on top. The front is a see through minty green that is perfect for spring, with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Excitement level 100’ written in the same minty green.

IMG_5306

The first product we have is the Drybar Detox Clear Invisible Dry Shampoo. I’ve tried Drybar dry shampoos before and I do like them. I think they work well and they always smell good. Of course the worst thing about some dry shampoos is they can leave a residue behind so I really like the sound of a clear and invisible dry shampoo.

IMG_5318

Next we have something that I’m very familiar with, the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I use this primer all the time, it hydrates the skin and gives you a great base to work with.

IMG_5319

Moving on we have the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is a moisturizer that you can wear on it’s own, under your foundation or you can even use as a highlighter. I have one of these and I really like it. It smells great and it gives a nice subtle glow under foundation. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

IMG_5320

The next product we have is the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides. This is a rich moisturizer with a luxe texture that is supposed to leave you feeling super hydrated. I haven’t tried a Drunk Elephant moisturizer but sounds like it’s right up my alley and I’m excited to try it out.

IMG_5322

The second to last product we have is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black. I’ve used this liner, it was forever ago, but I really liked it. It has a precise tip so you have a lot of maneuverability, glides on smooth and once it dries it’s not going anywhere. Definitely an eyeliner I recommend.

IMG_5323

And the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Versace Bright Crystal perfume. I can’t even tell you how good this smells. It’s got the perfect mix of floral and fruity but it’s also got some freshness. If you haven’t smelled this and you get a chance, I recommend it. This is a great scent for spring and summer.

IMG_5324

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your March Play 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 next month :).

January Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my January favorites. This month has been really busy, which I love, but at the same time feels like it’s been 79 years long. But within all of that I’ve collected a good group of favorites, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from this month’s Sephora Play Box. I will link that down below if you haven’t read it. My first Play favorite is the Kat Von D Beauty, who have rebranded themselves as KVD Vegan Beauty, Tattoo Liner in Trooper. I talk about this liner all the time, I love it. It’s really precise, it lasts all day and it doesn’t smudge. It’s just so good.

IMG_4969

My other Play favorite is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. I’ve been using this for a little while and my hair loves it. This helps to prevent future damage, restores moisture and creates vibrancy. I take pretty good care of my hair already, but I love a good hair mask and I can tell the difference when I use this one.

IMG_4965

Moving on, my next beauty favorite is the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. I am always on the lookout for a great highlighter and this one has been raved about for a while now, so I thought I would try it. I’m so happy I did because it’s fantastic. It’s the perfect rose gold shade, it’s buildable and the shine you get when the light hits it is so nice. They do make this in three other colors that I do want to look at, but if you’re looking for a drugstore highlighter I highly recommend this one.

My second to last beauty favorite is the makeup I did on my birthday. I wanted to do something really fun and a little extra because if you can’t be extra on your birthday then when can you. So I went with a gold sparkly eye and a bold lip and I love the way it turned out.

5E9A02FD-FB88-4F55-BAAD-31A9498DD65F (1)

And my last beauty favorite is the e.l.f. Cosmetics Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar palette. I did a post all about this palette, which I’ll link below, and since then I’ve been playing around with it and creating some fun looks. It’s a solid palette.

EP3

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s cinnamon rolls. Every year on my birthday, for my actual birthday my mom makes me cinnamon rolls and they are some of the best cinnamon rolls I’ve had. I don’t know her recipe, I need to get it from her, but they’re so well balanced and it’s everything you want in a cinnamon roll without it being too sweet.

IMG_4933

My second to last favorite is the Rolex 24. The Rolex 24 is the first race of the IMSA season, it’s always exciting and this year was no different. There were a lot of moves with teams, drivers and cars made in the off season so I was really interested to see how it was going to play out. I can honestly say it looks like it’s going to be an exciting season and I of course want to congratulate the Rolex 24 winners.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, the blues. This is a really broad thing to say and I listen to the blues a lot anyway, but this month has been filled with a lot of rain and crap weather that it’s been very fitting. My Joe Bonamassa playlist has gotten extra use this month.

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 favorites were.

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