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..

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..

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.

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™‚

Here is how my eye looks without any 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™‚

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!

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.

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 ❀

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!

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!

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!

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

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!

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’—
