Mini Sephora HAUL & DETOX WATER! <3

Hi all of you beautiful people! ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 โค

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

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…

This was with twoย 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

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 SOย me! So let’s try them out!

DEKADENT

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 allย and i wasted a lot of product trying to layer it on. SO, i would say go ahead andย 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.

That’s all for the haul! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now i have an awesome detox water recipe to share with you all, i used oranges, strawberries and limes.

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

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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

Review: Makeup By DNA Matte Lip Colors!

Hello lovelies! I am SO happy it’s friday, aren’t you? I can’t wait untill i get off work, so i decided to start putting this post together piece by piece on my breaks and spare time here since i already have some pictures saved. Today i will be talking about DNA Cosmetics matte lip colors! If you have not heard of this brand, you better listen up! I have a NEW OBSESSION with these lip colors. If you love matte, smudge proof & kiss friendly lip products, this will be right up your alley too! I have three colors to show you here today.

Meet “Lust” ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

A bright, happy and rosey bubblegum pink color. I’ve paired this up with a very neutral/soft makeup look, so no attention will be drawn away from my big matte lips! ๐Ÿ˜‰ BUT, i also think this would look beautiful with a brown/bronze/goldย variation on a Smokey Eye. Maybe i’ll create something in the future.. I am not exaggerating when i say that these set almost instantaneously. You wait maybe.. 1 full minute and your lips are covered for the DAY. No smudging, no bleeding & no feathering. If you do plan on going out to eat or something else that causes a lot of moisture around your lips i recommend throwing it in your clutch/purse for a quick reapplication afterwards. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’œ

The next color i want to share with you is called “Rebel Rose” ๐Ÿ’„

This color is a warm & nudey pink with a mauve rose undertone. This color can seriously be the transforming step to yourย whole look, this color is dark enough to be used for a grungey dramatic look or can be paired with soft eye makeup and make the look very natural & everyday friendly. I absolutely love this color and its versatility. Very popular i’m sure โค๏ธ This one is a mustย have in my book! One other thing i love about these lip colors are their texture/consistency. Ultra smooth, glides on, full coverage, great color pay off, ULTRA matte and the little doe foot applicator was made for lip products like this, i can seriously get such a perfect line around my lips you’ll be obsessed with how this stuff applies! ๐Ÿ‘

Now we have “Purplicious” ๐Ÿ’œ

An extremely deep & dark smashed blackberry color. How perfect is this shade for Fall?! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‚The only thing that was different about this color & all the rest are that: it required two + layers to achieve an even color payoff, cant really wipe away any errors with this one because it stains and it was much harder for me to get off my lips ๐Ÿ˜ญ Other than that, i LOVE this color and i’ll definitely be wearing it for Autumn regardless. Did i mention that these gorgeous DNA lip colors smell JUST LIKE MAC LIPSTICKS??? That soft & creamy sweet smell that we all know and love! MAJOR PLUS ๐Ÿ˜‹ I would pair this lip color with a dark purple/black/grey eyeshadow to go with the deep, dark theme ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

I HIGHLY recommend this brand, i think everybody needs to at least try DNA’s matte lip colors once! And once you do, you will be obsessed. I promise this will be your go to matte lip color for any & every occasion, it will become a part of your DNA. Go check out their site and pick out a shade onย their Etsyย shop HERE and ADD THEM ON INSTAGRAM HERE! Hope you all enjoyed this post and i HOPE you will go ahead and try these out for yourself, you will be so happy! ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’„

Leave thoughts & comments and remember to ENTER my giveaway, i’m adding goodies to it! ๐Ÿ˜„ winner will be announced Oct. 25th!
