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

Mini Sephora HAUL & DETOX WATER! <3

Hi all of you beautiful people! πŸ˜€ I am here today to share with you what i just received on my front porch! A box from Sephora, filled with some nice goodies i have been DYING to try! Let’s get right into it ❀

IMG_0112

First up we have a birthday gift from Sephora, a NARS Satin Lip Pencil duo. I was so excited when they let me chose my gift, this obviously caught my eye and i picked this one without hesitation because i LOVE NARS! Who doesn’t? Let me show you the colors swatched on my arm πŸ™‚

IMG_0116

TOP: Cruella

BOTTOM: Rikugien

Next up we have the Tarteist Clay Paint Liner & Liner Brush.

IMG_0113

This was an impulsive buy for me, i was looking through Sephora’s “liner” section, because i am running VERY low on my usual Almay Liquid Liner that is pretty much all i use on myself. I looked up some reviews, i watched the application video, and i got super duper excited. This product is BEAUTIFUL, it applies extremely clean and smooth and the brush that came with it is PERFECT for this formula. Once applied it has the look of a liquid liner, very similar to the one i always use! It also dries just like a liquid liner, from the looks of my swatch, this stuff WONT be flaking, cracking, fading or smudging. Just let it dry completely before you sneeze hehe ;D

Let me show you my line…

IMG_0117

This was with twoΒ smooth swipes of the brush. You can see here that it looks GORGEOUS, and very bold and black. Great pay off, I am so excited to start using this everyday, i may just never go back.. Sorry Almay! πŸ˜‰

Now we have an OCC Lip Tar-Stained Gloss set!

IMG_0114

I was very excited to try these guys after hearing all of the wonderful reviews on them. I also heard they were quite messy during application, but i just had to purchase them. I have NEVER been into lip palettes, or any lip product that requires a finger/brush to apply. I definitely prefer lipsticks. BUT, i am super happy it’s a very cute little set and these shades are SOΒ me! So let’s try them out!

NEW WAVE

ANDROGYNE

FullSizeRender (8)

DEKADENT

FullSizeRender (6)

The first two i showed applied how i would have expected them to, judging by the bold pictures on the package and other peoples detailed reviews. Unfortunately, my favorite purple lip tar ended up being my LEAST favorite, because it was not opaque at allΒ and i wasted a lot of product trying to layer it on. SO, i would say go ahead andΒ buy this set on Sephora’s website while you can. Two of them behave really nicely on the lip and have great color pay off, only one was a dud. But even though the purple one wasn’t opaque, it still looks nice it just looks like a transparent/purple gloss. These smell very very minty.

The next item i bought was a pack of purple shade ombre bobby pins! I thought these were pretty cute and i loved that they did the shade transitions, you could put the different colors right next to each other wherever you are pinning your hair and it would be really cute ;D Pretty sweet and had different colors choices as well.

IMG_0127

That’s all for the haul! πŸ˜‰ Now i have an awesome detox water recipe to share with you all, i used oranges, strawberries and limes.

IMG_0097

I thought this really turned out good and tasted awesome the second and third day. I decided i should share it with you ❀

IMG_0098

So, i started out by slicing up one orange very thinly, and saved about half of it to squeeze the fresh juice into the bottom of my pitcher. Next, i rolled a lime on my counter top to get the juices flowin’, then i sliced that up thinly and saved less than i did for the orange and squeezed it into my pitcher. After that i added most of that container of strawberries except for about 10, sliced thin. With long wooden spoon i lightly smashed the ingredients in the bottom. After that i added enough water to fill my pitcher not completely to the top. Lastly i mixed it thoroughly, added water and ice cubes, and popped it in the fridge! πŸ™‚ It takes a day for the flavor to hint the water, and when it does you will be pleased! I loved this and came up with it while i was at the grocery store shopping, super duper simple and good for you drink that has some awesome flavor. You should give it a go!

Thank you all so much for reading, i am going on vacation tomorrow and will be back to blogging soon! I hope you all are happy and healthy and enjoyed this post πŸ™‚ Leave comments & thoughts for me to read!

SUGAR SKULL!!! πŸ­πŸ’€ Halloween Makeup! Bright & Beautiful!

Hi gorgeous ladies! I am SUPER excited to share with you this beautiful look on how to tranform your face into a sugar skull for Halloween! πŸŽƒπŸ”ͺπŸ‘» I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while but i have been terribly busy with work, but i finally got a couple hours to myself so i took my oppurtunity to do anotherΒ Halloween makeup look for you all. Just a reminder to ENTER my OCT GIVEAWAY! Open to everyone U.S. & International! πŸ’„πŸ’‹β€οΈ ENTER HERE! Now, let’s get started on the look!

This is what i came up with..

image

image

I had so much fun creating and really personalizing this look, and i think you all will too! The best part is that the colors and design is pretty much completely up to you, besides the staples like: the nose, the smile, the eyes. I added a traditional spider web to my forehead, some pretty rhinestone embellishments in certain areas of my face, the flower to my chin etc..

Here’s what was used!

image

image image

So here i have my usual MALLY shadow base/primer, some hydrating face primer, DUO eyelash glue for my falsies and face embellishments, my usual foundation & concealer and some halloween makeup kits (an injury stackable i used the black for intense shadowing,Β and a day of the dead halloween kit) I honestly knew i was taking a gamble with the color set that came with the Day Of The Dead kit, they didn’t look like they were going to be nearly as pigmented as they should and they WEREN’T. So, i ended up using a plain ole’ eyeshadow palette, that happened to be very very cheap ($1.50 USD) but extremely good quality as you can see! “Waterworld” L.A. Colors. I applied my MALLY base shadow everywhere you see shadow around my eyes, and just used liquid foundation for the other parts of my face that had eyeshadow on them to help it stick really well. πŸ™Œ But i DID end up using the sponge to sharpen lines and the eyeliner pencil the Sugar Skull kit came with. πŸ‘

image

The key to this sugar skull look is the OMBREΒ & blending effect, a.k.a transitional shades of one color from dark to very light. It really made this look complete & pulled it together when i went in and really darkened the shadow areas and brightened the highlight areas. 🌺 Be very thorough when blending your colors out and don’t be afraid to add some black to darken things up or white/vice versa, it will give this look depth. If only it were Halloween TODAY haha, i am really happy with how this turned out. So: if you have a nice glide-on sharp black eyeliner pencil, bright eyeshadow palette/choices, some eyeshadow brushes, an injury kit with a true black shade and patience, you can transformΒ yourself into a sweet sugar skull girl! πŸ­πŸ’€

I hope this will inspire some of you to go ahead and try their own take of this! If you do i would LOVE to see your creations!!!πŸ˜‰ Thanks so much for reading hope you girls enjoyed! Please leave Β  thoughts & comments for me

Pastel Paradise Eyeshadow Look! Inexpensive L.A. colors palette!

Hello again ladies! I couldn’t help myself, i really wanted to do something pastel and bright lately for you all so i decided to go ahead and do it! Let’s get started, this is the look i came up with:

image

image

Now here are all of the products i used!

image

image

image

The Eyes:

  • L.A. Colors palette in “Tease” (middle three colors)
  • LancΓ΄me High Definition Mascara “Black”
  • Almay Liquid Liner “Black”
  • Salon Perfect False Lashes “Perfectly Glamorous”
  • Mally Base Shadow/Primer

image

Here’s a close up of the very affordable but very good quality L.A. Colors shadow palette in “Tease” i picked up. I believe this was $1.50 USD.

Β The Face:

  • Revlon Color Stay Whipped Creme Makeup “150 Buff”
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
  • MAC Strobe Liquid Lotion (on cheekbones)
  • FLOWER “Glow Baby Glow” Bronzer/Blush Duo
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer “NC20” (under eyes/blemishes)

image

Just wanted to add in a quick review about this Creme Makeup by Revlon. I absolutely love this stuff, it is whipped to perfection and applies onto the skin SO nicely. As you can see it gives me full flawless coverage too. Purchase yours HERE!

The Lips:

  • PALLADIO “Bella Pink” Matte Lipstick
  • No7 Precision Lip Pencil “Nude”
  • NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss “Nude Pink”

image

image

If you have not tried or heard of PALLADIO lipsticks, you need to at least pick up ONE for yourself. Especially if you are into matte lips, their formula for these matte shades are just spot on and look so stunning on the lips. I applied a NYX gloss over this palladio matte color though, so you can’t tell. Purchase one HERE!
