Quick Review: MUA Lip Crayons & Gloss! πŸ‘„

Hi beautiful people! 😁 Today is FRIDAY!!! πŸ’«πŸŒŸπŸ’« Just wanted to share another few items i got for my birthday πŸŽ‚ Some Makeup Academy lip products in BEAUTIFUL colors! Let’s get right into it!

πŸ’—

These two are the lip crayons, in “Mauve” and “Fuschia.” Not sure why it is called mauve because it’s not haha but whatever, it’s a gorgeous regardless! πŸ’˜

The lipgloss in “Rose” comes with this thin and flatter doe foot applicator, making it easy simple application. This gloss smells like a typical lip plumping gloss, like tea tree oil or something intensely minty. Although, this is not a plumper it just smells like one. 😁 The color is very opaque and looks like a rosey glaze over your lips.

Let me show you some swatches!

Top: Fuschia Mid: Mauve Last: Rose Gloss

I really do love every one of these colors and they are super pretty, hydrating and creamy on the lips, but i find that the color on the actual packaging was mileading for “Mauve,” (the bright fig/orchid color tip) and the name was just flat out wrong haha.. Not too sure what happend with this color but i do like the color it really turned out to be, like a lighter bubblegum pink. 🌸 I’ll definitely be rocking all of these babies! πŸ˜† Such an awesome gift!

I would reccomend these products over all, and they have tons more shade options if these ones in particular don’t speak to you! πŸ˜πŸ’—

Thanks for reading honeybees! Please leave thoughts and comments for me!

XOXO

Ipsy October Glam Bag! 2015

Hello my loves! So sorry i haven’t been posting lately, but things will be picking back up here i have quite a few posts to make in the near future about lots of fun makeup topics! πŸ’–πŸ’„ And one big beautiful HAUL coming soon!!! Today, i will be sharing what i recieved in this months october ipsy bag. If you do not know what ipsy is, i encourage to to go ahead and check out their website it explains it all for you there. Baisically it is a 10$ monthly beauty subscription that is shipped to you with 4-5 deluxe samples, a makeup bag and sometimes one full size product (eyelash curlers, nail colors, makeup brushes etc..) Last months ipsy bag really didn’t make me too exited, i got a lot of stuff i wouldn’t use. This month, i got a lot of stuff i probably wont use and tried to do everything in my power to not recieve in my ipsy bags (hand lotions, hair products, etc.)

This months theme was “Alter Ego.” It made me so excited when i pulled this card out of the bag and the gorgeous girl had bright beautiful extravagant makeup on and neon pink hair! “This October, transform into whoever you want to be. A little imagination and your glam bag is all you need. Infinite possibilities, infinite ways to express yourself” was printed on the back. I was so sure i was going to get some bright awesome colors and products, but i was wrong. I really don’t see how this card related to my bag at all unfortunately, but it was a nice picture to look at.

This is itCosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara in a sample/travel size. I like this product and i’m excited to try it since i haven’t yet, so this one made me happy. ItCosmetics is a great brand i have tons of their brushes and i’ve used some of their other products too, anyone who got this was probably happy as well. πŸ‘

Here i have a Peter Lamas Pumpkin Exfoliating Facial Scrub travel size, it smells like a spicy fall time sweet dessert but a little over the top smelling at that. The exfoliating property of this seems like it would work very well it has thick exfoliating beads in it. Maybe i will use it on my legs or something i don’t think i would want my face smelling like this as i get migraines very easily.

Then there is the Eva Nyc Therapy Session hair mask travel size, i might try this or maybe pass it on to my mother. She also has an ipsy bag subscription so we will call each other and trade items next time we see each other haha. πŸ˜„ It smells very strong and perfume like. But the smell isn’t bad. You may like it a lot πŸ˜‰

Here we have a pair of cheaply made tweezers by Emite Makeup. I buy really good quality tweezers that are costly but worth it to me, because i do my own eyebrows and it literally makes the job a hell of a lot easier when you have a pair of precisely made, flat sharp tweezers at your service. These have no use for me. πŸ‘Ž

And then we have an awesome The Balm Liquid Lipstick in “Committed.” Very small sample size. It is a nice everyday neutral color, in a matte formula. Once again, nothing to do with this months theme.. It feels very tacky even after 5 or so minutes, but just hold off on smooching or eating etc. for a bout 10-15 minutes then it will fully set and there will be no smudging at all. I know it seems long, DNA cosmetics lip colors set immediately and stay put all day unlike The Balms formula, and it is much more affordable. Definitely recommend checking them out if you haven’t, their lip colors are TO DIE FOR. But this one smells exactly like thin mint cookies, other beauty bloggers were definitely right about that! Haha, don’t know if i would want such a strong smell on my lips all day but we shall see. πŸ™Œ

Well that’s everything in this months bag, please do enter my giveaway international & U.S. welcome! I will be announcing the winner Oct. 25th! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Keep tuned in for more reviews, makeup looks, a birthday haul, and much more! Comment and leave your thoughts honeybees 😘

Quick Review: Nars Liquid Gold Face

I am sure many of you are big fans of NARS cosmetics just like I am. From the sleek modern packaging to the names that make you giggle and of course the top notch products, NARS has won a special place in my makeup drawers ❀ and remains one of my top brand choices. Today, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on one of their newer arrivals.. The NARS Liquid Gold Face Set. Which includes a mini Larger Than Life lip gloss in Gold Digger, A full size Hot Sand Illuminator, and a mini South Beach multiple. Now i don’t usually go for their boxes that include a few samples & maybe one or two full size products, but a few things that i noticed immediatley when i came across this set was that…

1. Everything gold intrigues me and calls out to me to purchase it and take it home.

2. I am currently obsessed with NARS illuminators, but i have not tried the Hot Sand. They have so many different shades ranging in nude/pink/tans. One of their most popular colors being “Orgasm.” (Shown below.)

image

3. I mean gold lipgloss? I loved the idea of my lips looking like i just kissed a pool of liquid gold. (“Gold Digger” lip gloss shown below)

image

And with those quick observations i picked this set up for myself and a few different illuminators to keep with my freelancing supplies. This one retails at about $45.00 USD. When purchasing this set i noticed most of the colors appeared very gold on the website, but upon arrival each product had a very nice rosey/peachy undertone. Which i happen to love. Take note that the lip gloss, is a very peachy-gold shimmer color. The illuminator, is more of a lighter peachy-champagne, and the south beach multiple is more of a light shimmer apricot/bronze. Overall the colors in this set are not pureΒ gold, but i personally feel it does make each one of these products more wearable for everyday/daytime use. Some tips for all you considering trying out this set or maybe one of the products inside the set, I found that applying a nude/peach matte lipstick underneath and finishing it with the “Gold Digger” gloss is lovely, and the most efficient way to apply the illuminator is with a beauty blending sponge. The multiple can be used as either a cream blush or bronzer, i suggest warming the product up before application just simply by swatching a small amount on the back of your hand, and then dabbing (NOT a heavy stroke) in the areas you want the color to be applied. (“South Beach” multiple shown below)

image

They have other shades of multiples that are more for highlighting/blush but the color “South Beach” in particular is pretty dark. It would really depend on your skin tone as to what you could really use this for. I have repurchased all of the full size products that came in this set since i happen to love them so much! Go head over to NARS website and try one out for yourself ladies!

NEW FAVE: Hikari Cosmetics lip gloss!

Well ladies, i’ve come across a new favorite for this month that i’d like to share with those of you who havent’t been able to play around with this yet. Many of you may have recieved this in a recent ipsy glam bag, and i’m sure those of you who did were pleasantly surprised. Hikari CosmeticsΒ has recently caught my eye with their lip gloss line! Coming from someone who really isn’t a HUGE fan of glosses, the texture, wearabilty etc.. I happen to recieve one of their full size lip glosses in the blood red berry color “Merlot” in my ipsy bag, which is the perfect color to finish off a smokey, classic or dramatic look. Since then, i have purchased three more colors in “Tropic, Flamingo & Sand.” These guys retail for $13.00 USD a piece. If you go onto the Hikari Cosmetics website you can find a collection of gorgeous high-shine, highly pigmented glosses in your favorite shade. Go check it out and pick one up for yourself!
