3 Recent Looks Lime Crime Venus III Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IMG_7726

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

IMG_7727

IMG_7734

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

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

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

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup Look

Hi everyone,

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

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

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

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

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

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

March BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

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

IMG_7540

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

IMG_7542

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

IMG_7543

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

IMG_7544

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

IMG_7554

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

IMG_7555

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

IMG_7545

IMG_7547

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

IMG_7548

IMG_7549

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

IMG_7550

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

IMG_7553

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

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