November Ipsy Bag 2015! <3

Hi beautiful people! Back from vacation, and it was more than wonderful. Spent a lot of my time relaxing in the deluxe room, and also grabbed some drinks with Bae at the casino. They also had a big beautiful pool and a full service spa/nail salon ❀ But anywhooo, i’m back to blogging and i came home to an Ipsy Bag! So clearly i had to post about it, let’s get right into it..

IMG_0196

This month’s theme was Beauty Blast: “Your November Glam Bag is a universe of brilliant beauties. Twinkle, twinkle, darling. It’s time to light up the sky.”

The girls on this card are absolutely beautiful, both sporting super dramatic lip colors, metallic eyes, long lashes and winged liner. Once again, this card had me really excited to see what was inside. Now, the bag is so so so cute. I love science, space and nebula’s of all sorts, so this hit home with me before i even broke into it. πŸ™‚

The first item i picked up was this Jesse’s Girl Eye Shadow Primer. This was cool at first sight but when i swatched it, it felt way too liquidy for my liking. So unfortunately i wont be using this and will pass it on to a friend. Here is a swatch for you all to see..

FullSizeRender (9)

It is almost my exact skin tone, but like i said before i prefer thicker eyeshadow primers. I pretty much ONLY use Mally’s Base Shadow. I definitely recommendΒ trying that one out if you are in search of a good one.

The next item i was SO excited about was this bright green lipstick. Fran Wilson MOODMatcher, is not a green lipstick but a clear one that adjusts to your body and creates a color by itself. I was dissapointed, i actuallyΒ wanted a green lipstick and i thought it really went with the outer space theme haha. So i’m not too happy about this one, it’s a neutral pink color which i have tons of. Here is a swatch for you all.

IMG_0203

This product is pretty nice and hydrating on the lips, it feels great and smooth so i probably will use this just as a moisturizer and for a little hint of color for a simpler look for work or going out doing errands etc.

The next item was a simple sleek eyeshadow brush. I will definitely be using this, i can never have enough brushes! Especially shadow brushes.

Now we have be a bombshell eye liner in “wild child.” Which is just black haha. It is okay, the swatch wasn’t very opaque or bold but i might use this for my waterline. Here’s a swatch..

The last item i received was this SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara. Always excited to try new mascaras, especially from good brands like SMASHBOX. πŸ™‚

IMG_0202

Here is how my eye looks without any mascara:

Here is how it looks with SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara:

So i really like this stuff! I think anyone else who got this in their Ipsy Bag was probably stoked about this too! I may purchase the full size version. ❀

Thanks for reading dolls, please leave comments and your thoughts for me to read and reply to! πŸ˜€ I missed you guys!

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

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

IMG_0101

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!

I am so unbelievably happy with these ultra matte lip colors and the super shock shadows, the lip colors are so pigmented and the doe foot applicator makes for super easy and precise lines, no lipliner needed for these guys. I wouldn’t even bother. 😁 The shadows formula is just too awesome, it feels like VELVET to the touch, the shimmer is so beautiful and sparkly in the light (very attention grabbing), a little goes a long way and the colors are just SO vibrant and long lasting on your lid! A+++! I have been wearing these shadows as a beautiful accessory.. πŸ˜πŸ’˜ I created a stunning strawberry lemonade type look today using the super shock shadows in “animal” (ft. in part 1) and “glowstix” (part 2). Let me show you really quick!

SO in love πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž They are so buildable and blendable! Let me show you the colors one by one.

AWESOME ColourPop HAUL #1!!! Birthday Edition βœ¨πŸ‘‘βœ¨

Hi everybody! 😁 I am so excited rightnow because i just recieved my first package from ColourPop Cosmetics today when i got home from work.😝 So how could i not get on that and start taking pictures, swatching products, and post this for you loves! πŸŽ€ My birthday is in a few days so my sweet & romantic man bought me what he knew i loved, and I’ve got quite the sum of ColourPop items still coming in the mail next week probably. SO, now that i recieved my first package, i’m breaking it up into two posts, and this will only be part one of the mega ColourPop HAUL!

πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’šβ€οΈ

Let’s get started!

image

I was having such a panic attack when i opened this, it’s so beautiful and the color and intense sparkle of the vibrant eyeshadows made my eyes light up, i probably looked ridiculous but HEY, who doesn’t love pretty gorgeous girly things?! It was also so clean and neatly packaged tight and comfy so that nothing had a chance of breaking. They even included a fragile sticker on the box which was nice i haven’t seen that with really any other orders i’ve placed with places like MAC, sephora etc.. These people care about you & your happiness and want their products to be in one piece when you get them! And all of mine were, so far! Thanks ColourPop πŸ’–

Here are three Ultra Matte lip colors he bought for me and more are coming, so YAY! πŸ’– I am literally in love with all of these colors, let me show you the swatches!

(TOP: Pacific, MID: Koala, LAST: Zipper)

I was so excited to try their Ultra Matte’s, i’ve only heard and seen amazing reviews and pictures of them! πŸ’˜ Love at first sight baby! I am so excited to get the other colors next week 😈 They are truly matteΒ and they don’t take long to turn matte, which i love. The consistency is great and i love the doe foot applicator tip for this liquidΒ type formula. If you haven’t tried these, now is the time. They are very affordable and have tons of colors to suit everyones’ wants & needs! ❀️

Eyeshadow time!! I wanted bright colors since i have a lot of neutrals as it is, wait until you see these colors!!! πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

Β image image image image image image image image image image

Unfortunately, these pictures just don’t do the colors justice they are insanely sparkly, shimmery and amazing! πŸ’œ I cannot WAIT to do some makeup looks/tutorials with these guys!

Swatch Time!

(From the top downwards: Erotic, Animal, Dare, Fantasy & Fizz)

I applied a thin coat of eyelid primer/base on my arm since i always use primer when using eyeshadows, and then swatched these beautiful colors with ease! They are very pigmented, smooth & creamy and they stay PUT! I love these shadows and i’m really looking forward to my next package from them! πŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—

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.

image

image

Meet “Lust” 😈

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! πŸ˜‰ BUT, i also think this would look beautiful with a brown/bronze/goldΒ 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. πŸ‘πŸ’œ

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

image

This color is a warm & nudey pink with a mauve rose undertone. This color can seriously be the transforming step to yourΒ 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 ❀️ This one is a mustΒ 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! πŸ‘

Now we have “Purplicious” πŸ’œ

image

An extremely deep & dark smashed blackberry color. How perfect is this shade for Fall?! πŸ‘ πŸ‚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 😭 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 πŸ˜‹ I would pair this lip color with a dark purple/black/grey eyeshadow to go with the deep, dark theme 😈

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 onΒ their EtsyΒ 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! πŸ˜΅πŸ’–πŸ’„

Mini MAC Haul! Quick Swatch Review!

Hi girls! Super excited because i received a special package in the mail from MAC cosmetics today. I ordered a few different lipsticks to review quickly & show you all! I’m sure you may be familiar with some of them. I have repurchased one of these colors and the rest are new to my collection πŸ™‚

Let’s get started!

image

image

image

So this is what i grabbed:

  • Sushi Kiss
  • Flamingo
  • Saint Germain
  • Heroine (repurchase)

And they sent me a free sample of the strobe liquid, i have a full size bottle of this but i like it a lot so i figured i might as well grab a sample for traveling or something.

image

Here are some swatches!

image

Sushi kiss, Flamingo, Saint Germain & Heroine.

Now let me show you them on my actual lips!

Sushi Kiss:

image

Beautiful & bright pastel, creamy peachy color! I absolutely love this one and was very excited to order it. And obviously these lipsticks are great & creamy!

Flamingo:

image

This is the most subtle color of the group, it just looks like a beautiful natural healthy pinky/peach glow on your lips, it is sooo pretty. I’m really glad i picked this one up.

Saint Germain:

image

This is a sweet pastel baby pink. I was worried it may be a little to light for my skin tone since i’m very fair, but it really is gorgeous and makes me look more tan and i’m definitely happy i got it! ❀

Heroine:

image

Since i really had barely any of this color left, i obviously had to get it back in time for fall! This is a beautiful deep but vibrant orchid/berry type color, It would look stunning on any skin tone in my opinion! πŸ™‚

Thanks so much for reading my loves! Leave comments & thoughts<3
