U-Spicy Oval Makeup Brush Set Review! 😍

Hi ladies! I’m here today to share a review on a purchase that I made just recently off of amazon.com! We have all heard of, or seen videos on Instagram about these “Oval, Toothbrush-Style Makeup Brushes.” I have been fascinated by the idea of them since they first began blowing up online- I love innovative, unique ways to do your makeup. When Tarteist “Clay Paint Liner” tubes came out I was overjoyed at the new approach on applying your liner ❀️ Anyways, I really enjoy these oval brushes- I’m sure you will too! Let’s get right into the review…



First of all- I’d like to say I purchase these off of Amazon HERE. They were $19.99 + free shipping for Prime users! πŸ’Έ

Right off the back I noticed how big and nice the box these brushes came in was! It’s sleek, sexy, smooth and makes you feel like you just made an awesome purchase for only twenty bucks! ❀️ It has a magnetic closure flap on the very front of the box that allows you to open it up and peek at your new goodies…


Now, I’d like to discuss how soft these bristles are. I mean seriously guys, it feels like they could be made of pure rabbit fur. I was a bit hesitant honestly on purchasing these in particular because of the price on amazon, thinking maybe the hairs were going to be coarser or of lesser quality than what I would have wanted. But I was WRONG!!! These seriously exceeded my expectations. They feel velvety smooth on your skin and apply your makeup flawlessly πŸ’•πŸ’πŸ» 

Another bonus would be how flexible these babies are! 😍 Talk about caressing your curves… Your face curves- that is! Here’s a screenshot of the amazon store picture example, and mine are just as flexible as this picture claims they are! So awesome.


 

The next cool thing was that it came with a manual on which brush would be ideal for each part of your makeup routine. Making it easy to get used to and remember! This isn’t a photo of the exact manual it came with inside of the box- but this was pulled from the amazon’s store pictures…


Overall, I absolutely am so excited to have purchased these brushes! I’m in love, and I would reccomend them to all of you ladies if you don’t have a set of oval brushes yet. Can’t wait to be using these from now on- my old brushes are gonna be sad 😞 Lol! But not me. 😝 Here is a photo of a look I created using all of these brushes… Something alien-y! πŸ‘½



Not the most traditional look, but hey! I was having a ton of fun lol πŸ’œ Thanks so much for reading- I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you try these brushes out for yourself! They are so amazing for the price 😘 Please comment and leave thoughts for me!

Short Spring Makeup Tutorial & Maybelline Product Review! πŸ’›πŸ’πŸ’›

Hi Babes! I’m back today with some spring-spiration! πŸ’•πŸŒ·πŸ’• I haven’t done a makeup tutorial for a while and I thought, what a better way to come back with a great makeup look but for the new spring season! 😁 Let’s get right into shall we???

So I was sitting here thinking of colors I associated with spring, first and almost instantly “pastel” came to mind. But I continued to simmer on the idea and I just wasn’t satisfied with pastels right now, I wanted something bolder. Something that could be worn out to a nice dinner date and you look fabulously spring-y but also suave and sexy. Then, I began thinking neutral with a POP of spring color! 😁 So I ultimately decided on a chocolate brown cut crease look, with a vibrant turquoise winged liner to go with it. Please continue reading if you’d like to see what products I used and pictures of my the look I created! πŸ’–

  
Here are the products I used to create this look!

  
  
  
*Benefit “Big Beautiful Eyes” Eye Contour Palette (Dark brown shadow)

*Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in “Ibiza.” (Used as eyeliner)

*Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara 

*Maybelline Master Contour Kit

*Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in “Rose Gold.”

*Milani “Bahama Beige” Lip Stick

*FLOWER Beauty About Face Liquid Foundation

*Salon Perfect Half-Falsies (Not in photo) 

*OFRA Eyebrow Pencil in Brown (Not in photo)

*MAC Mineralize Concealer (Not in photo) 

*L’Oreal Infallible 16 HR Pro Matte Powder Foundation (Not in photo)

   
Now I just wanted to quickly review the Maybelline products for you! 

 
 

Maybelline The Master Contour Kit
: When I first saw this in my local Walmart I was eager to try it out. Unfortunately, I didn’t so much like the highlight or contour shades. The contour was much too light for my olive complexion, and the highlight was so-so. I have much better quality highlighters by MAC, Pixi and Wet n’ Wild. The one thing I really loved about this palette, was the blush! It is such a beautiful, healthy/natural glow type pink. Like you just got done working out or something, so pretty 😍 I recommend this for the blush. But the contour and highlight might work better for you if you are very fair skinned. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: This stuff is black gold! πŸ’– I have been in search of an affordable mascara that separates and lifts my lashes towards the sky 🌞 This one does just that. Maybelline is funny, they come out with TONS of different mascaras. We’re always seeing new commercials with supermodel’s with the best looking lashes, and I’ll go out and try all of these mascaras & I’ll hardly like any of them. But finally, one has lived up to it’s claims! πŸ’œ Highly recommend! No need for expensive mascaras when this one exists 😁

Anyways, Thanks so much for reading babes! Please leave your comments and thoughts for me ❀️ xoxo

Natured Beauty Lip Products Review! ❀️

Hi ladies! 😍❀️ Hope you all had a fabulous easter holiday.πŸ’πŸ° I am back to share with you all a brand a recently discovered on my favorite place to find new and amazing makeup brands, Etsy.com. This time the brand is called Natured Beauty. The owner Philicia was kind enough to send me some of her products to review and test out for her! She is such a sweetheart and so amazingly talented, you are just going to love her products. ❀️ Please keep reading if you want to know more about this awesome new cosmetics brand!

Let’s get started! Philicia has been quite the cosmetics scientist if you ask me. Her shop is full of a beautiful variety of lippies, glosses and laquers and even eyeshadow that are all humane/not tested on animals- which is so important to me πŸ‘πŸΌ We are going to be covering lippies and gloss/laquer today πŸ’‹β€οΈ I’ll have more products and more colors from Natured Beauty to show you in the near future!

  

First
: The Pastel Purple Lippie $3.00 USD ea.

  

  
When I saw this in my package the first thing I thought of was “Koala” by ColourPop Cosmetics. This is pretty much a dupe just not in liquid form. I am a huge fan of matte lilac lip shades, and this lipstick formula is PERFECT. It is so opaque and creamy, the texture of these lippies are comfortable and not over-drying like many matte lip products are known to be. Not to mention this shade is a perfectly balanced pastel lilac color, and I guarantee it would look fantastic on any complexion!

Second
: The Bright Lime Green Lippie $3.00 USD ea.

  
I adore all the bright and untraditional lip shades. They are so much fun and no doubt save the day when you have a costume party, concert or music festival to go to- or maybe when you’re just feeling bold & fierce and want the world to know it! (AKA my face in the pic above lol) πŸ’š This shade has all the same great qualities as her other lippies; It’s a tangy lime green tone that will compliment most skin colors & complexions, it’s super creamy and has great color payoff, not drying at all, velvety matte texture and it’s wearability is great. Stays put on your lips, and not on your teeth! β€οΈπŸ’‹β€οΈ

Third
: The Lemonade Pop Bright Yellow Lippie $3.00 USD ea.

  

When I first pulled this out of my Natured Beauty package, I was like, “How on earth is this going to show up on my light skin? I may need to use a lip primer first…” Boy, was I wrong! Philicia put a little extra magic into this one, since yellow is such a light color as it is, and she made it super opaque and bright as the sun itself! 🌟 I really love this shade, it is so fun and bright while being a lighter pastel at the same time. Perfect for clubbing, concerts and festivals and everything in between. Get your party on with this poppin’ lemonade yellow lippie! πŸ’›

Fourth: The Pastel Orange Lippie $3.00 USD ea.

  

In the tube, this shade looks like it would be a darker adobe/clay orange color when applied. But to my surprise, it is the absolute prettiest light peachy orange shade. I would compare it to MAC’s ‘sushi kiss’ or ‘sweet and sour.’ I just applied a tiny bit of gloss over this last lip swatch to show you that you can easily make any of these matte colors shine, with only a little gloss!

Lastly
: The Cosmic Purple Lip Gloss $3.00 USD ea.


These are so fun to use! πŸ’œ I would call these a hybrid between Lip gloss and Lip tars (if you are familiar with those), although they are called glosses in Natured Beauty’s shop. They are thicker/heavier than a traditional gloss and have extreme shine & hydrating qualities πŸ˜‰ They are also more opaque and show off the true color more vibrantly than a regular gloss would. Regardless, these are beautifully made and apply wonderfully with a lip brush! I also discovered that using the Pastel Purple Lippie beneath and applying a little Cosmic Purple Gloss on top, makes for a stunning galactic type of combination!

Check out some of these other gloss shades she is offering +more in her shop!…
  

My overall thoughts: Every product I reviewed for you today I really adore, honestly. I am always looking for new cosmetic brands that deserve to be recognized and this is another one of those awesome smaller brands! These lipsticks are just as nice as my MACs, but I honestly like the wearability of Natured Beauty’s lippies much better. I can smile, talk and drink without eating my weight in lipstick, which I really appreciate and enjoy more than anything. I have been in search of a lippie that stays put, looks great and is affordable and girls, I found it! πŸ˜πŸ’„The lip gloss is stunning, it makes my lips look like I dipped them in purple space honey. Just look at that picture above!! πŸ˜‰ So luxurious, all of it. Please, go check out Natured Beauty’s Etsy shop HERE!
Thanks for reading babes, hope you enjoyed! Leave comments and thoughts for me! Stay tuned for more reviews for Natured Beauty and other brands i’ve discovered as well! ❀️

Tony Moly Sheet Masks: The Reasons Behind The Fruits & Veggies πŸŒπŸ…πŸ‹πŸ“

Hi ladies! 😘 Recently when I was online shopping, I decided I wanted to get some skin/face products. I love trying masks of all sorts, my skin always feels great afterwards and it always leaves me searching for more delightful masks to try! πŸ’– That’s when I realized I have been wanting to try the Tony Moly brand. Some of you have probably seen or heard of it before now…

I purchased a 10 pack off of amazon.com and they were kind enough to send 11. 😁 I believe this cost me $7.00-$8.00 USD. Some of these different kinds have me really excited to put them on my face lol… Such as the red wine mask, avocado & also seaweed πŸ’• My kind of masks πŸ˜‰πŸ· Each mask serves a different benefit for your skins health. Let’s discuss them!


First up we have the Tea tree “Skin Soothing” mask. Tea tree oil is very healing & soothing to your skin and is very beneficial. It can help with acne and problemed skin. If you have painful acne or irritated pop ups this would definitely be the mask you’d want to use! 🌿

Next is the Pomegranate “Elasticity” mask. These one is pretty self explanatory, it’s going to tighten & firm your facial skin giving you a more youthful appearance. But the reason behind the fruit base, is because using/eating pomegranate helps with cell regeneration and strengthens & protects skin cells. It also boosts collagen production aiding in skin elasticity. Some people take pomegranate based vitamins for this.

This one is the Lemon Skin “Brightening” mask. Lemon is beneficial to skin because it can lighten dark spots & areas. It also lightens the skin to an even tone naturally because it is an astringent fruit, and has natural bleaching properties. πŸ‹πŸŒž

This is the Tomato “Radiance” mask. People who drink tomato juice are contributing to their skins radiance! It is an excellent source of lycopene, which protects your skin from sun damage keeping it smooth and youthful. Tomato is also used for acne and dark spots. πŸ…

 


Here is one of my favorites already, the Red Wine “Pore Care” mask. Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in grapes, red wine & chocolate thay scientists have proved to be strong anti-inflammatories & have other healing properties as well. Making it great for clearing problemed skin. 🍷Let’s raise our glass to that!


Next one I was so excited to recieve was this Avocado “Nutrition” mask. High in vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, potassium, vitamin B5 & B6 and vitamin E, you can see how good it can be for your skin. 😁


This is the Aloe “Moisturizing” mask. I am a huge fan of ALL aloe vera masks. My skin has never felt softer than after letting my face drink up aloe. πŸŒ±πŸ’• It helps soften dead skin cells and aid in their removal, revealing healthy hydrated skin. πŸ‘ΈπŸ» Opposite to that, it helps cell regeneration as well. Β Proven to delay signs of aging.


Here’s another interesting one, a Broccoli “Vitality” mask. The credit for keeping your skin glowing and young goes to expert antioxidants like beta-carotene and vitamin-C, as well as other helpers like vitamin B complex, vitamin E (the one that gives shine to your skin and hair while reviving skin tissues), vitamin A & K, omega 3 fatty acids (adds glamor), amino acids and folate present in the broccoli. They all help to take very good care of your skin and leave it glowing, healthy, and radiant. Furthermore, glucoraphanin, one of the phytonutrients found in significant amounts in broccoli, has been connected with reversing the negative effects of sun exposure, so you can turn back the clock on your skin by eating plenty of this beneficial green veggie!


This is the Rice “Clear Skin” mask. Β Rice water is rich in beauty nutrients that make both your hair and skin look fantastic. It is also rich with minerals highly beneficial to your overall skins health. 🍚 This will give you clear & glowing skin!


Another favorite of mine, seaweed masks!!! This is a Seaweed “Skin Purifying” mask. Rich in vitamins and minerals, it can be eaten or applied directly to the skin as a strengthening agent and exfoliant! Β  Seaweed’s natural, anti-inflammatory compounds can have a positive effect on acne as well.

img_2423-2
Lastly, we have the Makgeolli “Skin Purifying” mask. Makgeolli is a slightly sweet alcoholic beverage native to Korea. It is made from rice or wheat mixed with nuruk, a Korean fermentation starter. How would that help skin you say? It is full of amino acids and vitamin B, which firm and brighten skin! πŸ˜„

Alrighty, well I hope you enjoyed this babes! If you ever want to try out Tony Moly, now you atleast know what masks may be right for your skin type. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜˜ Leave thoughts & comments! Keep tuned for lots more posts- new brand reviews, look & smell good enough to eat bath products, tutorials & a new waist training series I will be starting! 😍 Xoxo

How I paint my blank full coverage fake nails! πŸ’…πŸΌ

Hey ladies! 😘❀️ I’m back again with a quick tutorial for you girls on how I usually paint my blank fake nails. Like these:


I for one am no good at painting my fingernails. I will make a mess lol 😞 I’m usually never satisfied with how it turns out either, and I tend to mess up my mani every single time by touching them to something, as if I were cursed. πŸ˜‚But now i’ve solved my messy, frustrating situations by painting them off my hand, let me show you what I mean! Some of you may have already figured this out, but I thought it’d make for a nice post. πŸ‘πŸΌ

Starting off, I filed each nail into a nice point because they didn’t come very sharp at all. This is the time consuming part, but it’s worth it to make nice, sharp talons.

Secondly, I prepped my nails. Filed them down and lightly filed the surfaces of my nails to give the fake ones something to hold onto better.

Next, I started assembling my helpful q-tip tool for holding the nails while I apply the nail polish!



Pretty simple right? Just roll a little short peice of tape, stick it to the q-tip, and then press the nail onto it. Then all you have to do is paint them! Like so:


Here is a close up picture of how sharp I filed these ones compared to how they came… That white nail below the pink is an original, pretty round right?


Now that you have your nails painted flawlessly, you’re probably going to want to use a pair of tweezers to pull off the little pieces of tape after removing the q-tips. Then simply glue them to your nails and enjoy! A picture perfect, inexpensive manicure. That box of 500 fake nails cost me only $10.00 USD on amazon.com and I already owned everything else πŸ‘πŸ»


What do you think? Leave me your thoughts and comments babes ❀️ Keep tuned for some new awesome brands i’ll be sharing with you! Have a beautiful night.

Ipsy Glam Bag Review 2016! πŸ’–

Hi dolls! I missed you! I haven’t talked to you sweeties in a while. I am so sorry I have neglected my blogging, just started a second job and i’m working 40 + hours a week now and I just haven’t had time to come on here and type my fingers off.. πŸ˜₯ I truly apologize girls, and I am going to seriously get back onto my precious beauty blog and bring you guys more stuff to read and tutorials to try, new brandsΒ to fall in love with, all of that great beautiful stuff! πŸ‘„ I really hope you all understand and will keep looking into my blog every once and while to check for new posts! Today, I recieved my Ipsy Feb 2016 glambag. So it was a perfect way to motivate me to sit my butt down and blog.

Let’s get started!


The first two items I want to review with you beauties is the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil & a gorgeous naked cosmetics mica loose pigment shadow in “Sierra Nevada” that I recieved.



The mineral eyeshadow from naked cosmetics has a beautiful shimmer and velvety feel to it. It is super easy to apply and shows up nice and pigmented on the first swipe. It is full of beautiful sparkels & shine that do not show up truly in the picture above.. But this is a very dreamy, earth tone, light catching mocha brown shade. I am in love. Perfect for everyday glam. πŸ’•


As for the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil, this is pretty much a product based soley for dry skin. I have really healthy normal skin that is dewy- just mildly moist but not dry whatsoever, so unfortunately I can’t use this nice product. I can tell by the crazy slick & typical oily consistency that it wont sit well with my skin, so I am not even gonna risk it. Other women who have dry skin in need of some moisture; this product claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines caused by dryness, increase moisture in 4 weeks, and creates an ideal canvas for applying makeup as well. So this just might work perfectly for you! 😁

Next up, I was sent a mini Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind lipgloss in the shade “Pink Sequin,” and a pink Luxie flat definer shadow brush.


The gloss:Β 

  • Β Smells cheap
  • Tastes strange
  • Gritty texture

Other than these unwanted traits, it’s a gorgeous pretty light pink champagne color. It’s a shame I wont be using it becuase of it’s noticable cheap quality and scent.

The brush:

  • Gorgeous pink handle
  • Very precise flat tip
  • No loose hairs at all

This seems to be a really great quality brush, always love recieving new ones to play with! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’• Thanks Ipsy!


The last product I was sent is this Perfectly Posh- Best Face Forever Pepermint, Grapefruit and Aloe Vera Exfoliating Face Mask. This mask seriously smells minty and incredibly refreshing, it has large exfoliating sugar grains that definitely gets the job done when it comes to shaving off all those lame dead skin cells revealing new, soft and vibrantly healthy appearing skin. I like the combonation of the pepermint and aloe vera, it makes for a very soothing combination and spa-like experience! πŸ’†πŸ» I am giving this face wash product a chance, even though these normally turn me off.

Thanks for reading babes, missed you all so much! 😘 Leave me some comments and thoughts. I really hope to hear from some of you. Untill next time ladies! πŸ’‹

Badashnails Review! πŸ’•

Hi babes! I wanted to share a little gem i found on Etsy recently, it’s a hand painted false nail shop located in Florida called Badashnails. The owner Ashleigh, can custom make any shape, color or other requests you may have for a really great pricing and shipping was fast. I ordered a pair of these gorgeous deep purpley grey stiletto nails and i am so impressed, i really think i am going to be ordering many many more haha, and create some custom ones as well! πŸ™‚ Let me show you what i received!

FullSizeRender (50)

They look a tad lighter in person, i have a picture that will show their truest shade if you continue reading. All though this is pretty close to what they look like.

FullSizeRender (102)

These are truly beautiful and she spent time filing them into a nice sharp claw for us ladies who like them sharpπŸ’–πŸ’…πŸΌ πŸ˜‰ She also offers the other standard shaped nails like coffin, square tip, oval & also the finishes.. I chose matte stiletto!

FullSizeRender (100)

This picture above show their color perfectly, and i am in love with it. They have stayed on wonderfully and are still sharp and the color hasn’t faded at all. I am so happy i purchased them! ❀ I suggest you go check out her shop if you are interested, https://www.etsy.com/shop/Badashnails.
