Update: New Natured Beauty Products! πŸŒΏπŸ’„πŸŒΏ

Hi beautiful ladies! I wanted to stop by your feed to share some beautiful new products being sold by Natured Beauty, the wonderful Etsy shop I had mentioned a little while back. The owner Philicia, has been busy at work creating new products and shades to offer us!

Let’s get right into it- starting with the first new lipstick shade she sent me called “International Lover” a dusty, gorgeous pink.
* Looks a tad brighter in this picture than it does in person. *

I have already reviewed the actual lipsticks by Natured Beauty LLC for you in my last post about her lovely shop. But if you don’t recall what I said about them- they are seriously  SO creamy, smell wonderful and they are amazingly opaque! Just as good as my MAC lipsticks, no joke ❀ Her lipsticks hydrate your lips as well as making them look kissable & fabulous. Something MAC did the opposite for me- my lips always felt dry during & after wearing their lippies. 

Next let’s look at her new Buttercream Cupcake Scented Liquid Lip Creams & Hybrids!!! πŸŽ‚

Meet the “Sinful” hybrid, a gorgeous coral yet pinky-toned red that has been sprinkled with fine silver glitter. This is one my absolute favorites out of the shades she sent me! ❀️ It is just such a sexy, vivid color that would look so great on date night paired with a little black dress πŸ˜‰πŸ‘— If only I had a pair of heels in this EXACT shade…

Next we have the beautiful Yellow Liquid Lip Cream in Lemonade Pop- If you remember my last post I had reviewed a yellow lipstick by Natured Beauty called “Lemonade Pop”. This is basically the liquid version- maybe just a tiny bit more vibrant! πŸ’› I seriously just have a special place in my heart for bright yellow lipstick. Maybe it’s because I find it an appealing contrast with my deeply dark hair and eyes, or maybe it’s because I think it is the PERFECT festival lippie color, it radiates sunshine and good vibes! From inside your heart and from your lips! You can’t help but feel bright when you have this shade on 🌟🌞🌟

Now we have “Midnight Purple” Hybrid πŸ’œ This shade is such a rich, kind of galactic-spacey, indigo purple. It is just magnificent! Stunningly beautiful with the many multidimensional shifts of blue and violet. I have never seen anything quite like this shade before, not to mention the color payoff is great and it’s got a super creamy texture. You will feel like a true, sexy space explorer in this color! πŸ˜‰πŸš€πŸ’•

This one is DEFINITELY my other favorite, this is the “Grey Goose” lip cream. And by favorite, I mean I am going insane over it. This Liquid Lip Hybrid is sure to turn heads everywhere you go. Seriously, just look at this shade!!! It is a very modern, unique stone color. I know for a fact I am going to be wearing this 24/7, Lol! It is just an extremely sophisticated and well rounded shade, something we have yet to see from high end brands like MAC and JStar Cosmetics. If you are a fan of grey, greige, violet greys ANYTHING cool grey toned- you must try “Grey Goose.” You’re gonna be addicted to this one ❀️❀️❀️ Somebody call Alchoholics Anonymous! 😡

Here I am showing you her beautiful Black Liquid Lip Cream paired up with the Natured Beauty “Grey Goose” lip cream. This black shade is literally black as black as black can be! πŸ˜„ It’s an amazing formula too, because it DOES NOT stain or get stuck deep in your lip creases, like most black and dark red/purple liquid lippies tend to do. Anyways, I wanted to show you what creative things you could do with the black. Like a grey and black ombre effect! Or any color for that matter! The options are endless with Natured Beauty’s Liquid Lip Creams & Hybrids πŸ•ΈπŸŒšπŸ•Έ Love this color so so much, it’s a very easy black to work with which can be hard to find in liquid lipsticks. Easy to wipe away mistakes, hydrating to your lips and no dark staining at all! 


Please do go check out Philicia’s shop here: Natured Beauty LLC! Pick out something you like and try it out for yourself- you won’t be dissapointed! These products are beautiful, good for you and made with love & care πŸŒΏπŸ’„πŸŒΏ

Thanks for reading babes! I hope you liked this post, leave comments & thoughts for me πŸ™ƒ

Rainbow Highlighter DIY!!! πŸ’•πŸ¦„πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ’•

Hi ladies! I’m back today to share with you a DIY tutorial on how to make your own unicorn/rainbow/mermaid highlighter! YES! A full tutorial on how to do it! If you are a beauty product fanatic like me- I’m sure you have all seen the new prism highlighter craze. The original producer of this highlighter is by an Etsy shop called Bitter Lace Beauty, but there were down sides to ordering it from the original maker…

1. It costs $22.00 

2. Being a small Etsy shop- It’s on preorder from 9-10 months. Since everyone has realized they need this in their life at the same time lol

3. Once my order is ready in almost a year, shipping makes me wait even longer for it to arrive

So with those three key points bothering me, I decided it can’t be that hard to DIY. So I went ahead and DIY’d it! The project was a MAJOR success, and I urge any and all of you to do it at home. Ecspecially if you just aren’t patient enough to wait for someone else to make it and send it to you! Let’s get right into it. First we’ll talk about the items you will need to complete this job…
What you’ll need: 
1. Cheap brightly colored eyeshadows- primarily in light pink, light orange, bright yellow, light green, light blue and purple. I used all L.A. Colors shadows ($1.00 each)


2. Rubbing Alcohol 90%-100% will work just fine.


3. An old compact you can empty the rest of the product out of. Face powder, blush any medium sized compact will do (clean, rinse and dry this out afterward. It needs to be clean & dry)


4. A small jar to mix the shadow, shimmer and alcohol in


5. A highlighter/shimmer medium to mix in with your crushed eyeshadows. I used “gossamer” by Bare Minerals. Works absolutely great for this! This is what really makes this highlighter- a highlighter. 


6. Paper towels for blotting

7. Butter Knife & Mixing Tool

STEP ONE: So what you are going to do is start off with light pink- then do light orange, then bright yellow, then light green, then blue, then purple last. This will give you the ideal “rainbow prism” of colors. Start by shaking less than a tsp. of gossamer into the bottom of your mixing jar, then empty out your pink shadow pan into the mixing jar as well. Crush it up as finely as you can and get it thoroughly blended with the shimmer. If the color is a bit too dark for your liking- you can add some white shadow to the powders you are mixing. Blend and crush together thoroughly, adding the gossamer as needed. Test swatch this loose powder on your arm when it’s all mixed up, because this will show you just how shimmery and how opaque it will be once its dried out in it’s new compact. πŸ™‚

STEP TWO: Now that you have the shade and sparkle desired, add a little rubbing alcohol to the powder mixture. Start off slow- you can always add more but you can’t take away once it’s in there. You are looking to make a metallic paste, but not too thin or runny. It needs to have some ‘hold’ to it in order to pat it down into the pan with all the other colors. But if it’s too thick- you wont be able to spread out a nice flat surface in your compact. It will look gritty and space up when you try to spread it out. If you see you have it too runny- add a little more shadow, or gossamer to the mixture to thicken it up a tad. If its too thick but almost there, add a few drops of alcohol until you get it where you want it. Be patient and don’t have a heavy hand with this step! #crucial

STEP THREE: Once you have you first color ready to be placed into the compact, pat it down in there on the left hand edge. Then each other color you mix up will go in a nice stripe next to that one- so on and so forth. Make sure each row isn’t took thick or you will run out of space before you make it to the last color, purple. Now that it’s patted down in there, it doesn’t look too flat. It looks bumpy rightnow, but not to worry! Just take the flat edged tip of a butter knife and swipe it against the top of the color lightly to give it an even, smooth face. Finally, you are going to take your paper towel and lightly press down onto your color you have just placed into your compact. You can push the product into corners or edges, and any gaps that show can be fixed with this step using your finger and paper towel. Just press lightly! πŸ™‚ 

Repeat for each color and then leave to dry completely for about 4 -6 hours. Once you can no longer smell rubbing alcohol, it’s ready to use! How exciting right? So forget preorders, wait times, and shipping delays! DIY! Check out my final product- 



I am so glad I decided to give this a shot- I felt a little unsure in the beginning, but man did it all work out just fine! πŸ˜‰ What do you think? Do you like my custom made prism highlighter? 🌈 Leave comments & thoughts for me! Love ya ❀️

Icey Blue Winter Makeup Look!

Hi beauties! Just wanted to post another quick Winter themed look today! I actually got a call this morning from my boss saying it’s a snow day and to stay home! How awesome is that? πŸ™‚ So the snow has brought me this icey-princess inspiration, let’s get started!

IMG_0922

Today i used:

  • MAC Mineralize Liquid Foundation
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer
  • L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Powder Foundation
  • SMASHBOX Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder (bronzer)
  • MAC Strobe Liquid
  • MALLY Base Shadow/Primer
  • Tarteist Clay Paint Liner in Black
  • SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara
  • Z-Palette: A couple blue shade variations & white
  • Milani Baked Blush in Bella Rosa
  • Salon Perfect Falsies
  • DUO Lash Glue

As you can see i used a few different shades of blue to create depth in this particular look. I also added a very small extra wing to my liner, while bringing it out from my bottom lash line as well as on top. This made my eyes look widerΒ and cuter. ❀ When using bright colors like these, use a shade lighter than your base color to blend things out. If you don’t have a lighter shade of blue, go ahead and use white and you can easily create the faded out, lighter blue look.

FullSizeRender (96)

For my lips i applied a primer, then dabbed a silver shadow in the middle of my lips, then applied the same lighter blue color for filling in the rest of my lips, followed by lining key areas with a darker blue shadow.

I hope you all loved & enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading and please do leave comments and thoughts for me, i miss talking to you guys! ❀

Quick Ipsy December Glambag Review!

Hello again all! ❀ I received my lovely little pink bag in the mail today, so you know what that means… Review time! πŸ˜€

The little card is so adorableΒ it has all the famous youtubers on it but in little cutesy drawings! I really don’t read these anymore though, because they always mislead me. So let’s just get right into it!

FullSizeRender (36)

FullSizeRender (24)

First off we have this sweet little teeny tiny Fomula X Nail Polish, in a gorgeous shimmery champagne golden shade called “Revved Up”. I’ve heard great things about Fomula X and i’m excited to try it because i do not own any colors byΒ this brand. I especially like this color for the upcoming Holiday ❀ Did any of you get a different shade?

FullSizeRender (27)

The next few items i’ll cover now. Starting off with the Anti Aging Lip & Hand Polish by Jersey Shore Spa in the scent “Vanilla Bean.”

Here i squeezed a little out for you to see the texture & consistency. It clearly has a very abrasive exfoliating quality to it, with large sugar crystals and also nice hydrating characteristics because of the jojoba oil you can see draining off. I have been in dire need of a great lip polish in these colder months here in AZ. So i was VERY excited to see this, and since i plan on only using this on my lips the deluxe sample size will last me FOREVER! I also love the smell, it’s more of a natural Vanilla Bean scent than the typical artificial vanilla cake smell. Thank you Ipsy! ❀ You saved my lips!

Next up we have the two lip products i was sent!

Left: Pacifica Power of Love Vegan Lipstick in ‘Nudie Red’

Right: Model Co Illusion Lip Liner Pencil in a Mauvey/Brown Shade

First off i would like to say if you want to see a lip swatch of these two products, check out my last post because i used them together to create a beautiful natural lip! I absolutely LOVE the texture of both of these, they glide on your lip and are super creamy and opaque. I usually would prefer if Ipsy sent me brighter colors, but these are the perfect nude duo, and i am so happy these were sent to me. Great lip products! ❀ These are both FULL SIZE also!

And lastly, we have the dreaded hair care sample:

IMG_0860

If you read my Ipsy reviews you know that i am never too happy when i get a heavy glambag only to crack it open and find a big ole’ tube of hair product or hand lotion 😦 I like coconut but i don’t need these types of samples as i already have a pretty religious hair ceremony. LOL. Passing this item off to a friend.

And that’s all for my Ipsy Glambag! I really hope you all enjoyed this review, let me know what you got in YOUR bag down below! ❀ Love you all! πŸ™‚ Remember to follow my instagram and youtube channel if you haven’t already!

My Favorite Blushes: November!

Hi loveliesss! ❀ I thought i would do a favorites post since i haven’t in sooo long. Today it will be about all my absolute favorite brands of blushes and gorgeous colors that all of you should absolutely check out, you will love these! Apparently my little lady thought these were special kitten discs for her to play with πŸ™‚ Lol.

Let’s get started!

IMG_0389

1. Milani Powder Blush in Coral Cove 05

This Milani Blush is absolutely one of the silkiest feeling, velvety, buttery blushes i have ever used… It also is in the shape of a rose which i thought was super girly and pretty, i almost didn’t want to touch it. This color is a really healthy, peachy glow color that is perfect for everyday use. I would definitely repurchase this in different colors and i recommend you try it out for yourself! ❀

2. Milani Baked Blush in Bella Rosa 11

I love these baked blushes and you will be seeing a couple more of their silky smooth colors shortly! πŸ™‚ I fell in love with this color at the store i thought it was such a pretty deeper pink rose color, this would look gorgeous on EVERY skin tone, i kid you not.

3. Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink 01

This color has the most beautiful marbling in it, it has streaks of dark pink rose and a super light champagne that creates a beautiful sparkling light pink with light reflecting gold shimmer.

4. Milani Baked Blush in Delizioso Pink 10

This color is a dupe for Dior’s Powder Blush in Eternal Pink. It is bright, happy tulip pink. Such a perfect summer time pink color.

5. Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso 05

This color is similar to the first color i showed you, but it is slightly more of a natural nudey/peach rather than coral/peach. This is also a great everyday blush and it is one of my more used colors as you can see. It’s not matte but it is definitely not as shimmery as Dolce Pink. It has a subtle light catching shimmer in it.

6. MAC Sheertone Blush in Pinch MeΒ 

This color is one of my favoriteees ❀ It is a brown/mauve neutral matte color and it is just so perfect, you can pair this up with almost any eyeshadow look. It is such a versatile blush by MAC. Super velvety and perfect!

7. ColourPop Super Shock Cheek in Fruit Stand 5K02

This is a very bright color here but used lightly in moderation it gives you cheeks the rosy glow everybody wants to achieve. And for the price it is an absolute steal! If this color doesn’t speak to you one of their other shades they offer definitely will πŸ™‚

8. FLOWER Beauty Glow Baby Glow Blush/Bronzer Duo BD1

I actually love both of these products, it has a beautiful natural pink with gorgeous gold sparkles dispersed throughout it. The bronzer is nice too is a golden brown, with very subtle shimmer in it almost matte.

9. Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection in Rose Champagne Glow

This HUGE highlighter/blush compact is just simply gorgeous. I picked this up the other day at CVS with my boyfriend and i was skeptical at first because i do not own any Wet n Wild anymore, i’ve just moved on to better brands in my opinion. But i am SO happy i bought this! ❀ I couldn’t help myself, the marbling sold me. This is like comparable to MAC’s Invisible Light Highlighter, it is just more pink toned. This will be my new go to highlighter and i will be putting MAC’s away for a while πŸ˜‰ The name is as true as it can get.

IMG_0418

I really hope you enjoyed this favorites post and it helps you chose some really great blushes next time you are out shopping for yourself! ❀ All of these are so great, i went through my collection and picked all of these out carefully. I’m surprised i narrowed it down to just 9! LOL. But, honestly these are truly the best blushes i own and i just had to share with all you beautiful people. Thanks so much for reading and please remember to enter my Christmas Giveaway if you live in the U.S.!!! Leave me comments & thoughts loves ❀

Here are his questions for me:

What is one bad habit you have kicked?

I would always get complaints about how i would give people dirty looks, i’m pretty positive it was just my face hahaha. But i haven’t heard that complaint in a while SOOO..

What is your single most vivid memory as a child?

Being forced to pretend i’m someone i am truly not, being told to act certain ways and believe certain things and shun people who were different, in terms of education. Not my family life.

What are some of your thoughts on social media; answer it in a sentence of no more than 15 words.

It makes people a little crazy haha..

What is your most sentimental and prized tangible possession (please guys don’t pick the obvious, that means no house, car, laptop, phone etc.!)?

My hair πŸ’• I cut it all off when i was younger and regretted it so bad, and now i have long healthy hair i would never cut it again. 😁

What is your idea of an ideal day?

I am a home body.. Haha it would have to be a gloomy day, maybe Β even raining.. Where i can light some sweet smelling candles, pour a cup of coffee, turn off all the noise, clean up the house and get on my laptop & blog πŸ’—

Share one random general fact/trivia you know (from the top of your head) without searching for it from a source of information.

For every human on the earth there are almost 2 million ants. 😯

Who is your favourite FRIENDS character (if you don’t know the show, favourite How I Met Your Mother character). If don’t watch either, what is your favourite series to watch. If you don’t watch any, favourite book.

My favorite book is The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.

What is your one current obsession?

Detox waters! πŸ‘ & Trying out different forms of eyeliners.

On to the makeup questions, share one beauty tip/hack fail that you have experienced. If you don’t have one, then just one bad experience you have had with makeup.

I cannot make eyeliner on my inner corner look good. Lol πŸ˜‚

Mascara, eyeliner, eyebrow product (any kind), blusher, lipstick (any kind). Pick one from this list and your reason for picking it.

Mascara because it will liven up your face without any other products. Make you a bit more appealing/feminine in my opinion.

Here are my questions:

What is one thing you would change about yourself? (Physically or mentally)

Are you closer to: mother, father, or siblings?

One ebarassing event you can recall from the top of your head?

Were you popular or an introvert in Highschool?

If you could posses any type of animal as a pet, without any risk of it attacking you, what would you chose?

Fake nails VS. Natural nails?

When did you start blogging? Do you remember any of your first post’s topics?

Milkshakes VS. Sundaes?

Liquid liner or pencil?

How often do you actually wear a full face of makeup? (Excluding any MOTD blog posts)

Now for my super good, super easy detox water recipe! This is SO simple anyone can do it!

Β 

You will need:Β 

  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • A Cucumber
  • An Orange
  • Bag of Black Chia Seeds
  • Can of Coconut Water (optional)

Β 

Chia is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients without being loaded with calories. Almost all of the carbs in them are actually fiber, and they can actually help you lose weight. They can be added to any type of drink, smoothies, cereal, oats, salads and more. This bag cost me $4.00 and will last me an extremelyΒ long time since you use small amounts.

Β Β 

I started off by throwing in Raspberries, blackberries and thinly sliced orange and cucumber in my pitcher. I used a little less than half the cucumber, and i sliced up half the orange and squeezed the other halfs’ juice into the pitcher.

Β Then i slightly muddled (squished) the ingredients with a long wooden spoon. Crushing up almost all of the rasberries but leaving the other fruits in tact and beautiful.

Β 

After that step, it’s time to add your Chia Seeds. I used 2 tablespoons.

Β 

Toss them in ontop of your fruit and use your spoon to mix things up. Then put a load of ice ontop your fruit, followed by a can of coco water and regular ice water. Mix mix mix!

Β 
It takes overnight for the flavors to hint the water. The next day you will have a lovely, healthy and beautiful drink to fuel your morning! The seeds and ingredients will settle at bottom like so:

Β 
That’s normal! All you need to do is stir it up, pour yourself a glass and enjoy πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸŠπŸ‡πŸŽ

I hope you guys enjoyed this terribly long post, please do leave comments & thoughts for me! πŸ’­
