September Favorites

Hi everyone,

As today is the last day of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my September favorites. I have good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have two favorites from my September BoxyCharm box, which I’ll link below if you haven’t read. The first Boxy favorite is the Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Shadows in Private Jet & Shimmering Sunset. I’ve worn these in a couple different ways since getting them, and they’re both really pretty and versatile. The matte, Private Jet, is very velvety and dries down quickly. Color wise it’s a light pink but it had a lot of warmth to it. The metal, Shimmering Sunset, is a gorgeous shadow. I’ve used it as a liner and all over the lid and it works great in both applications and color wise it’s an amber/slightly rose gold.

My second Boxy favorite is the Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Pressed Pigment Palette. I’m not going to talk too much about this palette here because I am doing a Three Recent Looks post with it. But what I will give you some of the basics. This palette has eight shadows, four mattes and four shimmers. 

IMG_6346

IMG_6348

The shimmers in this palette are very shimmery. They have reflective pearls and fine glitters and the mattes are nicely pigmented. When I did my original swatching two of the mattes were a little powdery, but they blended out very nicely.

IMG_6357

This is a great palette and if you want to have fun with color, then I would recommend it. 

My last beauty favorite is a MAC lipstick in the shade 640, Red Rock. I bought this during the BoxyCharm Pop Up Sale and since my initial about it I’ve worn it quite a few times. 

IMG_6207

This lipstick has a matte finish, it’s highly pigmented and very creamy. Tone wise I would say that this is a classic red. MAC does red so well and this is a perfect example of that. This is going to be one of my go to lipsticks for the holidays. 

IMG_6209

IMG_6210

Moving on, I have a couple of random favorites. The first is the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Normally the 24 is held is June, but this year it was rescheduled to September and despite the fact that there were fewer cars in the field it was a very exciting and action packed race and I really enjoyed it. 

My second random favorite is my sunflowers. My poor sunflowers went through a lot this year, they got eaten by slugs in their early stages of growing, although I did take care of the slug problem with copper tape, and just recently heavy rain and wind blew three of them over. But before that happened they all opened up and were so pretty.

IMG_6226

And my last favorite is a music favorite, specifically the live stream concert Joe Bonamassa did at the Ryman Auditorium. With there being practically no live music this year it was really great to sit down and listen to some even if it was over a live stream. I think the setlist for the show was great, he played a few songs off of his upcoming album Royal Tea, out October 23rd, and some of his other classic and popular songs. I thought it was great and I can’t wait to listen to Royal Tea in full. 

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 favorites were. 

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

September BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I finally got my September box from BoxyCharm and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Glam Vibes Only and the items in the box really fit the theme.

752A01FE-F2A1-44AA-8255-5F28B69F2DC9

The first product we have is the Farmacy Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry. This was one of the choice items for the month, I had yet to let Boxy choose my choice item so I did this month and they chose this. This is supposed to be super hydrating, full of Vitamin C and help to reduce the look of dark circles and fine lines while leaving the under eye looking radiant. This is paraben free, formaldehyde donor free, synthetic fragrance free, phthalate free and mineral oil free and cruelty free. I’ve heard great things about Farmacy and I love a good eye cream, so I’m excited to give this a try. 

IMG_6352

Next we have the Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Shadows in Private Jet & Shimmering Sunset. This is a double ended liquid shadow set. I’m wearing this today and I really like it. The matte is really velvety and dried down pretty quickly and the metal is incredibly sparkly and super pretty. Private Jet is the matte, it has a doe foot applicator and is a light pink that has a lot of warmth to it and Shimmering Sunset, the metal has a pointed brush so it’s easy to apply as liner and it’s what I would call an amber/slightly rose gold glitter. 

IMG_6349

IMG_6350

IMG_6351

IMG_6355

Moving on we have the Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Pressed Pigment Palette. This came out not too long ago and I thought it was super pretty, so when I saw it in the box I was really excited. This palette has eight shadows, four shimmers and four mattes. 

IMG_6346

This palette has a really nice mirror on the left side, which is something that’s popular in new palettes right now. 

IMG_6347

The shimmers in this palette are super shimmery with fine glitters and reflective pearls and the mattes seem smooth and like they’d be easy to blend. 

IMG_6348

I swatched this palette on my arm and I did it in rows as it appears in the palette. The first shadow we have is Pero Like, a peachy/orange metallic with gold glitter. Next to that is Tiene Swing, I would call this a deep burgandy metallic that in the pan and somewhat in the swatch, looks like it has a hot pink glitter. Then there’s Ay Que Cute, a matte light pink that has some slight rosy tones and the last shadow in the row is Muy Excited. This is a matte that I would call like a burnt orange with some brown undertones. When I was doing the swatches I found Ay Que Cute and Muy Excited to be a little powdery, but not enough for me to not want to wear them and I didn’t think the other mattes were powdery. 

IMG_6356

The first shadow in the second row is Eres Un Show, this is a purple, lavender, metallic and it’s so pretty. Next to that is Guao, another purple metallic but this one is darker and has blue glitter. Then there’s Jajaja, this is a matte brown that I would call light-medium in tone. And the last shadow in the row is Ponte Hyper, this is a matte hot pink/fuchsia that is super bright and gives Barbie vibes. 

IMG_6357

The second to last product we have is the Laura Geller LashBoss Bold Mascara in Black. This says it will lengthen and curl your lashes without clumping. It has Widelash and Carob Tree Seed Extract to prevent fall out, re-densify lashes and keep them soft and conditioned. I’m confused by this mascara, the before and after pictures on the box don’t look all that different from each other and the wand itself seems pretty standard. I’m still going to try it out and if it wows me, I’ll let you know. 

IMG_6342

IMG_6343

And the last product we have is the SFGlow Glam In Paradise Cannabis Sativa 3 Piece Mask Set. This has Cannabis Sativa (hemp) Oil, Green Purslane Extract and Meadowfoam Seed Oil to hydrate, calm and destress skin. This is a 3 piece set and you get the Glam Straight Face Mask, Eye Woke Up Like This Eye Mask and Sun’s Out Pouts Out Lip Mask. I don’t use a lot of lip masks, but I do love face and eye masks, so I can’t wait to try these out. 

IMG_6337

IMG_6338

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same items in your September BoxyCharm boxes 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 October box :).

August Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my August favorites. I tried out quite a few things this month and I feel like I have a pretty good mix, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have a few favorites from my August BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the MineTan Body Skin Hydra Glow Sleep Serum. This has a triple action hyaluronic acid formula with time release technology so it moisturizes while you sleep and is supposed to give you glowing skin when you wake up. I really like this, it sinks in super quickly, my skin feels really soft and moisturized and I can see that it’s more glowy. I will say that the first time I went to use this the pump was broken, but I managed to MacGyver it and it works great now. If you’re looking for a new nighttime serum I would recommend giving this a try.

IMG_6082

My next Boxy favorite is the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer. I was interested to see how this would compare to my favorite eye primers, Too Faced and Pretty Vulgar, and it’s just as good. This is quick drying, dries down clear, is cruelty free and not only locks in your eyeshadow all day but enhances the shadow.

IMG_6083

My second to last Boxy favorite is from the Trestique Summer Glow + Go Set and it’s the Maldives Luminescent highlighter. This highlighter is so good. It’s a gorgeous champagney shade, buildable and has a fantastic glow. I’ve been using this under my brows and in the inner corner of my eyes as well and it works so perfectly everywhere you put it. I don’t always like a cream highlighter, but this one is really creamy and blends out nicely. Definitely recommend this if you’re in the market for a new highlighter.

IMG_6130

IMG_6131

IMG_6133

IMG_6132

My last Boxy favorite is the Clarins Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. So this is a liquid lipstick with a moussey texture and a velvet finish. This is deep red in color but you can see it has some berry undertones. This feels really light on the lips, it’s long lasting and because of the shea butter it does leave your lips feeling hydrated. I wasn’t sure if I would really like the cushion applicator, but I do. It applies the product evenly and smoothly.

IMG_6084

IMG_6085

IMG_6090

And my last beauty favorite is two of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks. I did a review of two of the liquid matte mini sets, Au Naturel Nudes and Blushed Nudes, so I have a favorite from each. The first is from Au Naturel Nudes and it’s Sugar Mama. This is a peachy nude and it’s definitely true peach in color.

IMG_6001

IMG_6002

IMG_6024

My favorite from the Blushed Nudes set is Muse. This is so pretty, it’s deep rose in color and it looks so pretty on.

IMG_6014

IMG_6015

IMG_6021

Moving on I have a racing favorite and it’s the Indy 500. This year the 500 was very different than years past, but it was still super fun to watch and action packed. The USAF Thunderbirds did the flyover, Roger Penske gave the “Start Your Engines” command, there were great battles for position and ultimately Takuma Sato took home the victory, so huge congrats to him.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s my Summer Rewind playlist that Spotify put together for me. It has a good mix of my favorite songs, specifically those I’ve been loving during the summer months and I’m enjoying 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 August favorites were.

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

3 Recent Looks, Pur Cosmetics Festival 2.0 Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I’m going to be doing one of my favorite types of posts, a Recent Looks. This time it’s all about looks I did with the Pur Cosmetics Festival 2.0 Palette. I really like this palette a lot, I think it’s very versatile and I like every look I’ve created with it.

The first look we have is the first look I did when I got the palette. I thought that one of the best ways to test the palette would be grab the brightest shade and just go for it. I’m really happy with how it came out. So the first thing I did was prime my face using 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 the whole thing with the KVD Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

IMG_6094

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 using the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_6096

 

IMG_6097

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow primer. Then I went in with Dreamland which is a matte peachy/salmon shade and I put that in the crease. Next I applied Turn It Up, a really vibrant hot pink satin shade and I put that on the outer corner on my eye and blended into the crease a little. For the rest of my eye I applied Euphoric, a cream toned glitter. I put a little bit of Turn It Up and Dreamland under my eye and Euphoric in the inner corner of my eye. I lined my eyes using the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, then applied the Too Faced Damn Girl mascara. Because I did a bold eye I wanted to do a neutral lip, so I lined my lips using the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner and on top of that used the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca. I set the entire look using the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray.

IMG_6098

IMG_6099

IMG_5854

For the second look I wanted to use the more neutral shades in the palette. The first thing I did was prime my face using the Touch In Sol Glassy Skin Balm. I then 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_6095

For the rest of my face I first used my Benefit Hoola bronzer. Then I applied the Alamar Cosmetics Isla blush and highlighted with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_6100

IMG_6101

When it came to my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Eyeshadow primer. The first shadow I used was Photo Op, a matte light orangey brown and I put that in the crease. Then I used On Set, a matte chocolatey brown and I put that on the outer corner of my eye, a little bit in the crease and blended. For the rest of my eye I applied Pure Bliss, which is a medium toned gold glitter. I put a bit of On Set under my eye and Pure Bliss in the inner corner. I used the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooperto line my eyes and applied the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. For my lips I took the Beauty Vaulte Lip Liner in Natty Nat and put that all over my lips, this is a fantastic red. And I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_6038

The third look I did the other day and I just wanted to have fun with the bold glittery shades. The first thing I did was prime using the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the KVD Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

IMG_6094

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

IMG_6104

IMG_6105

When it came to my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow primer. Then I went in with Insta-Worthy, a matte pinky/brown and I put that in the crease. I then took Electric, a deep blue glitter, and put that on two thirds of my eye. For the rest of my eye I applied Utopia, a light blue glitter with flecks of white and yellow glitter and I blended those together a bit. I then took Insta-Worthy and put that under my eye. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and applied the Benefit They’re Real mascara. For my lips I used the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner and the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Crush. I set the whole look with the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review Part Two

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with part two of Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review, I will link part one below if you haven’t read it. I wanted to first talk about the Huda Beauty Legit Lashes mascara. I got a sample of this when I placed the lipstick order and I tried it out today. First impression, I like it a lot more than I thought I would. I have pretty long lashes anyway, but the volume and length this gives is impressive. I highly recommend.

So the lip set I’m going to be talking about today is the Blushed Nudes. This like the Au Naturel Nudes has a plastic sleeve over it and Blushed Nudes is written in metallic pink.

IMG_6009

IMG_6010

IMG_6011

In this set you get four mini and this set focuses on nudes that have both warm and cool undertones. The first lipstick we have is Bombshell and I would describe this as a peachy nude.

IMG_6012

IMG_6013

IMG_6020

 

The next lipstick we have is Wifey. I would say that this is on that pinkish/very light brown line.

IMG_6018

IMG_6019

IMG_6023

The second to last lipstick we have is Muse. This is such a pretty color, it’s a deeper rose shade and this is a lip color you can tell is going to look so nice on.

IMG_6014

IMG_6015

IMG_6021

And the last liquid lipstick we have is Venus. This is the one lipstick in this kit that’s more on the brown side, but it’a nice medium brown.

IMG_6016

IMG_6017

IMG_6030

That about wraps it up for this post, I looked on the Huda Beauty website and there is a third lip set with all brown lipsticks so if that ever comes back in stock I’m going to purchase it.

Until next time, I’d love to know which of these lipstick shades is your favorite and you can never have too many liquid lipsticks :).

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review Part One

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! During National Lipstick Day a ton of different beauty brands were having great sales, so I had a little look around and found a few things I wanted from Huda Beauty. I ended up picking up two of their liquid matte mini sets, I also picked up a sample of the Legit Lashes mascara, and I’m going to be talking about them in two different posts.

This was my first time buying straight from the Huda Beauty website and I have to say I love their packaging. When I opened the box I was greeted with tissue paper with lips on it and the products themselves were in a bubble wrap envelope. The bubble wrap itself is in the shape of hearts which I’ve never seen before and I think it’s adorable.

IMG_5991

IMG_5992

So the set I’m going to talk about today is the Au Naturel Nudes. This has a plastic sleeve over it and Au Naturel Nudes is written in metallic rose gold.

IMG_5993

IMG_5994

IMG_5995

In these sets you get four minis and this set in particular is between peachy and brown, warmer nudes if you will, in shade range. I have a few of the Huda Beauty matte liquid lipsticks and I really like formulation, they have great staying power, they’re nicely pigmented and they don’t feel heavy on the lips. The first shade we have is Girlfriend. This is a deeper shade, somewhere between peach and brown.

IMG_5996

IMG_5997

IMG_6005

The next shade we have is Trendsetter. This is more of a true brown.

IMG_5998

IMG_5999

IMG_6006

The second to last lipstick we have is Sugar Mama. This is peachy in color and it’s what I would call more of a true peach.

IMG_6001

IMG_6002

IMG_6024

And the last liquid lipstick in this set is Bikini Babe. This is the lightest shade in the set and this is a really light nude. I have a two other liquid lips in shades similar to this and I really like it.

IMG_6003

IMG_6004

IMG_6008

That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys have this set or any of these lipsticks I’d love to know what your favorite shade is/what shade you have.

Until next time, have a good weekend and you can never have too many liquid lipsticks :).

Three Recent Makeup Looks: Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

 Today I thought it would be fun to show you guys three of the looks I did recently using the Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions palette. This is unlike any other palette I have and I don’t wear colors like this very often, so I’ve been having fun with it. That being said, let’s get into it.

The first look we have is the first look I did using the palette. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glow Starter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This gives a great glow under foundation and smells really good. Then I went in with my foundation, I’m still using the Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory, but I’ve switched to the liquid version and I like that much better. I also switched bought some new sponges and switched out the Beauty Blender ones that I was using for the Real Techniques and I like the Real Techniques so much better for blending. I then applied my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory, under my eyes and a few other places and topped it off with the KVD Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

IMG_5744

For the rest of my face I first went in with bronzer and used Too Faced Extra Toasty. This bronzer is nicely pigmented and blends well. Then I applied the Alamar Cosmetics Isla blush from the Colorete Blush Trio in Medium-Tan. Isla is a pretty coral shade, the formulation is really nice, it’s quite pigmented without being too much and it’s very buildable. And I topped it off with the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. This is one of my favorite highlighters, it’s the perfect light pink and gives a great shine.

IMG_5745

IMG_5746

For my eyes I didn’t have a set plan of what I wanted to do, but the first thing I did was prime with the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eye Shadow Primer. This has become a primer that I reach for a lot. It’s on the thicker side, but really does make the shadow last all day and it brings out the colors of the shadows you’re wearing. The first shadow I went in with is the light matte pink in the top left corner and I used that as a base all over my lid. Then I used the the last shadow in the palette, the matte raspberry, and I packed that into the crease and blended. To deepen it up I went in with the first shadow in the second row, that matte maroon, and I put that a little bit in the crease but mostly I packed it on the outer corner of my eye and blended. On the rest of my lid I wanted some sparkle, so I used the rose gold glitter in the top right corner. I took that same matte maroon under my eyes on the outer corner, joining it with the outer corner on the top. I brought that in to the middle and then used that same rose gold on the inner corner under my eye and brought that to the middle to meet the maroon. I then lined with the KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper. I finished off the eyes with the Too Faced Damn Girl mascara, this is a mascara I started using recently and like the Better Than Sex, I really like it. If you want long lasting volume and length, I recommend it. On my lips I first applied the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner, this is a nude liner that I use a lot and really like. On top of that I used the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Crush. And I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5747

IMG_5748

IMG_5583 (1)

The second look came from me wanting to just play with makeup and use glitter on a random Saturday. And I did in fact go run errands in the look and only received one or two odd looks for being at the grocery store with a eyelid full of glitter. The base of my face for this look is the same as the first look.

IMG_5744

For the rest of my face, I first went in with bronzer and used the Benefit Hoola bronzer. This is one of my longtime favorites and definitely one of my go to’s. Then I applied the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee & Gold Healthy Glow Rose-Gold blush. This again is a blush I’ve been using for a while and have repurchased a few times. It’s a nice pink and the glow that you get from it isn’t too over the top. When it came to highlighter, I picked a relatively new one for me, the Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in 335A: Bloom Time. This is a pretty pink that I would say is between a light and medium pink shade wise and has a nice shine too it when the light catches it.

IMG_5749

IMG_5750

For my eyes, after priming with the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged, I went in with that same light matte pink and used that all over the eye as a base. At the point I had decided that I wanted to do a halo eye look, for the first time, so I just went for it with my shadow choices, full send. I picked that matte raspberry and packed it in the inner corner of the eye and in a bit, then I did the same on the outer corner, bringing it in a bit. Once I was satisfied with that I decided to go full glitter and grabbed the small palette from the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House party and went with the gold glitter, Miss Kringle. I then used the matte raspberry under my eyes to bring the look together. I lined my eyes with the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner and applied the Sephora Collection Lashcraft Big Volume mascara. I used the same combo on my lips as the first look and set the whole thing with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5751

IMG_5752

282148F6-638C-4B8A-805D-BDF18DB4C022 (1)

The third look is from the other day and for this look I want to play with the more red shade in the palette and was inspired by the sunset. The base for this look is the same as the other two, which was not intentional because I do have other primers and setting powders I use, but it just worked out that on these days this is what I used.

IMG_5744

For the rest of my face I first used the Benefit Hoola bronzer, then went in with the Alamar Cosmetics Isla blush and when it came to highlighter I wanted to use a product I just got, so I used the Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Coco Bling. This is a subtle silver shimmer and is great on the face and the body. I really like it.

IMG_5753

IMG_5754

For my eyes after priming with the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged, I used the light matte pink as a base all over the eyes. Then because I wanted the sunset look I first went in the crease with the light matte peach shade. Then, to use the shade I haven’t yet, I went in with that orangey/red on the bottom left and packed that in the outer corner and a little in the crease. On the rest of the lid I took Don’t Carat All from the Too Faced Pretty Rich palette and topped that with a little bit of Fluent In Diamonds, a gold glitter. I lined with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and applied the Benefit They’re Real mascara. I lined my lips with the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner, then used the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca, this is a light pink/salmon shade and I’m wearing it today. I like it a lot. I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_5755

IMG_5756

IMG_5697

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

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

Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Recently I’ve been wanting to expand the color range of my eyeshadow palette collection, so I had a little look around the Sephora website and came across the Huda Beauty Obsessions palettes. While they all look incredible and I will definitely be going back and purchasing more, the first one I saw and the one I picked up is the Ruby Obsessions palette.

IMG_5565

This is a 9 pan palette with mattes, one shimmer and glitters. The is also a pretty nice mirror attached to this palette.

I think I have two or three palettes in total that have one red or reddish shade in them, so seeing this palette was exciting to me because I do wear the reds I have and I like them quite a bit. I swatched this on my arm and I did the swatches row by row. The first shadow we have is a really light peachy/pink matte, the mattes are really smooth and the entire palette is very nicely pigmented. Next to that is a pinky/red glitter and a rose gold glitter. The glittery shades are quite smooth as well.

The second row starts with a matte maroon. Next to that is an interesting shadow, it’s one of the glitters and in the pan it looks like it has purple undertones and in the swatch you can see the purple and red tones but it also has a bit of a duo chrome effect and you can see gold. I’m intrigued to see how that looks on the eye. The last shadow in this row is a glitter and it’s a really dark shadow, black undertones with purple glitter and when it hits the light it’s super pretty.

The last row starts with the one shimmer I mentioned and it’s an orangey/red. There’s a shadow very similar to this in a e.l.f. palette I have that I’ve finally figured out how to make work for me, so I’m interested to see how this one looks on me. Next to that is a matte light peach that would be a great transition shade. And the last shadow is what I would call a matte raspberry.

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I think this is a great palette that I will get a lot of use out of and I can’t wait to wear these shadows.

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

Three Recent Makeup Looks

Hi everyone,

I was looking through my Instagram the other day and saw three fun makeup looks that I did recently and I thought it would be fun to share with you guys how I did them. I’ve done a few posts similar to this in the past and I quite like them. A couple little notes before we start, I forgot to include them, but for all three looks I used the Too Faced Primed and Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer and the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. And since I took these pictures I’ve switched foundation and concealer so those aren’t present in the pictures. And if you want an in depth look at some of the products I’m going to talk about I’ll leave links to corresponding posts below. With that being said, let’s get into it.

This first look was my New Years Eve look and I know I showed it in a January post, but I didn’t get in depth with it. This was the first time I had really played around with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette, and I’m still so happy with how it turned out.

Starting with my face, the first thing I did after putting on primer was put on my foundation, L’Oreal True Match super-blendable foundation in N2. Then I applied the matching True Match concealer in N 1-2-3, Fair/Light and in the spots I wanted more coverage, the YADAH Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in Light Beige and I made sure that was well blended with a Micro Mini Beauty Blender. To top that off I applied the Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Setting Powder in Translucent with an e.l.f. Powder Brush. When it came to my bronzer I used the one in the top right corner of the e.l.f. Blush Palette in Light and a Firma Beauty 103 Angled Contour Brush. The blush I used is the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold Healthy Glow Rose-Gold Blush, it’s definitely become one of my favorites, and I used a big fluffy brush to apply that. And the last thing I did was highlighter and for that I used the Tini Beauty Barfly Highlighter in Candlelit.

Now for the fun part, eyes. After applying the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base I went in with a Bare Escentuals eyeshadow brush and applied Birch and Dystopian in the crease and blended that out with a Skone Blending Brush. Then I applied Noir and blended. Once I was satisfied with that I used my L’Oreal True Match concealer, which I now only use for things like this, and applied Cyborg. It is worth saying that I did copy the eyeshadow part of this look from a picture on Pinterest. Next up was eyeliner and for that I used the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper and the mascara I used was Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara in Noir. I curled them and brushed them out. After that I took another shadow brush and applied Cyborg in inner corner of my eye and a little bit of Noir at the end. Then, taking an angled brush, I filled in my brows using Dystopian and I topped off the look by combining MDM Flow Retro and Anastasia Beverly Hills Crush. I was slightly unsure about combining them, but it created a nice color.

The second look we have is from Valentine’s Day and I really wanted to have fun with pinks.

ML7

For this look I used pretty much all of the same products on my face with the exception of the bronzer. And what I used this time is Warm My Heart from the Natural Beauty Palette and that’s from the Too Faced Best Year Ever makeup collection. It has a nice shimmer and gives you a summery glow.

ML9

I used two palettes for this look, Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry and ColourPop She. The first shadow I used is Bloom from the ABH palette and I applied that with the Bare Escentuals eyeshadow brush and blended it with the Skone Blending Brush. Then I used Missy from the ColourPop Palette, that is really pretty matte burgundy and blended that. I applied concealer then used Rose Quartz from the ABH palette. I topped that with the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and used the Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara in Ultra Black. I curled and brushed out my lashes and applied a little bit of Rose Quartz on the inner corner of my eye and a little bit of Missy at the end. I filled in my brows with Dystopian and topped off the look with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Crush.

And the third look I did on a random Saturday and was wanting to play with color.

ML4

ML5

ML6

For my face I used the same products that I used in the first look.

ML10

Even though this look is purples, I think it adds a lot when you use another color as a base. So the first thing I did was take my Bare Escentuals brush and put Bloom in the crease and blend it out with my Skone Blending Brush. Then I went to the ColourPop She palette and used Damsel, which is a really pretty matte violet shade and blended that. Next I applied concealer and applied Empress, which is a really pigmented, really pretty metallic purple. The liner I used is the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner in Trooper and I used the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. After curling and brushing out my lashes I applied a little Empress on the inner corner of my eye and a little Damsel at the end. I filled in my brows with Dystopian and finished the look with the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner and Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Crush.

That about wraps it up for this post, like I mentioned, these are some of my favorite posts to do so look out for more in the future and I’d love to know which of these three looks is your favorite.

Until next time, have fun creating your looks and you can never take too many makeup pictures :).

Sephora Favorites The New Neutrals Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be going through the Sephora Favorites The New Neutrals lipstick box with you guys. This is one of the things that I got for Christmas and since then I’ve worn a few of the lipsticks and I’m loving them. So, I thought it would be fun to talk about and show you guys what you get in this box. I don’t know if you can still get this at Sephora, if I can find a link I’ll put it down below and if not I’ll put the links to the individual lipsticks.

Within this box you get five lipsticks, one of which is full size and the range of brands is quite nice.

nn2

The first one we have is the full size and it’s the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Crush. This is one that I’ve worn and I really like it. It feels light on the lips, the formulation is great, it’s really long lasting and it smells good. Color wise, it’s a peachy nude and I would definitely recommend this. It’s really pretty.

The second lipstick we have is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Crush. I wore this on New Years Eve, I mixed it with MDM Flow Retro and I really liked how it came out. This is a matte lipstick and it’s in a  pinky beige shade. This is the first time I’ve worn one of the Anastasia Beverly Hills lipsticks and I’ll definitely be buying more.

nn9

Next we have the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. This is a plumping lip gloss that’s clear with a pinky blue shine. I haven’t worn this yet, but I’ve heard really good things, so I’m excited to try it. Plus it smells really good.

nn5

The second to last lipstick we have is the Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ludwig. I’m a fan of Kat Von D Beauty, so I’m always excited to try out one of her products. This a matte lipstick, that I haven’t worn yet, but from the swatch I did I can tell it’s highly pigmented and it went on really smooth. This is a nudey brown in color and I know this comes in a bunch of other colors, so I’m sure I’ll be trying some of those as well.

nn10

And the last lipstick we have is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick in Salt Lyfe. This I have worn and I really like it, I have two other lipsticks from this collection, so I knew I would like it. These lipsticks are really pigmented and moisturizing. This one in particular is a pinky brown and has a purple undertone. It’s really nice on.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have tried this box or any of these lipsticks, I’d love to know what your favorite is.

Until next time, do you prefer matte or glossy and you can never have too many lipsticks :).
