Ipsy Glam Bag Review 2016! ๐Ÿ’–

Hi dolls! I missed you! I haven’t talked to you sweeties in a while. I am so sorry I have neglected my blogging, just started a second job and i’m working 40 + hours a week now and I just haven’t had time to come on here and type my fingers off.. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I truly apologize girls, and I am going to seriously get back onto my precious beauty blog and bring you guys more stuff to read and tutorials to try, new brandsย to fall in love with, all of that great beautiful stuff! ๐Ÿ‘„ I really hope you all understand and will keep looking into my blog every once and while to check for new posts! Today, I recieved my Ipsy Feb 2016 glambag. So it was a perfect way to motivate me to sit my butt down and blog.

Let’s get started!


The first two items I want to review with you beauties is the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil & a gorgeous naked cosmetics mica loose pigment shadow in “Sierra Nevada” that I recieved.



The mineral eyeshadow from naked cosmetics has a beautiful shimmer and velvety feel to it. It is super easy to apply and shows up nice and pigmented on the first swipe. It is full of beautiful sparkels & shine that do not show up truly in the picture above.. But this is a very dreamy, earth tone, light catching mocha brown shade. I am in love. Perfect for everyday glam. ๐Ÿ’•


As for the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil, this is pretty much a product based soley for dry skin. I have really healthy normal skin that is dewy- just mildly moist but not dry whatsoever, so unfortunately I can’t use this nice product. I can tell by the crazy slick & typical oily consistency that it wont sit well with my skin, so I am not even gonna risk it. Other women who have dry skin in need of some moisture; this product claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines caused by dryness, increase moisture in 4 weeks, and creates an ideal canvas for applying makeup as well. So this just might work perfectly for you! ๐Ÿ˜

Next up, I was sent a mini Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind lipgloss in the shade “Pink Sequin,” and a pink Luxie flat definer shadow brush.


The gloss:ย 

  • ย Smells cheap
  • Tastes strange
  • Gritty texture

Other than these unwanted traits, it’s a gorgeous pretty light pink champagne color. It’s a shame I wont be using it becuase of it’s noticable cheap quality and scent.

The brush:

  • Gorgeous pink handle
  • Very precise flat tip
  • No loose hairs at all

This seems to be a really great quality brush, always love recieving new ones to play with! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’• Thanks Ipsy!


The last product I was sent is this Perfectly Posh- Best Face Forever Pepermint, Grapefruit and Aloe Vera Exfoliating Face Mask. This mask seriously smells minty and incredibly refreshing, it has large exfoliating sugar grains that definitely gets the job done when it comes to shaving off all those lame dead skin cells revealing new, soft and vibrantly healthy appearing skin. I like the combonation of the pepermint and aloe vera, it makes for a very soothing combination and spa-like experience! ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿป I am giving this face wash product a chance, even though these normally turn me off.

Thanks for reading babes, missed you all so much! ๐Ÿ˜˜ Leave me some comments and thoughts. I really hope to hear from some of you. Untill next time ladies! ๐Ÿ’‹

My Favorite Blushes: November!

Hi loveliesss! โค 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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! โค

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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 Meย 

This color is one of my favoriteees โค 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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! โค 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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! โค 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 โค

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

ย 

You will need:ย 

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

ย 

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 extremelyย long time since you use small amounts.

ย ย 

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.

ย 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.

ย 

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

ย 

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!

ย 
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:

ย 
That’s normal! All you need to do is stir it up, pour yourself a glass and enjoy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‡๐ŸŽ

I hope you guys enjoyed this terribly long post, please do leave comments & thoughts for me! ๐Ÿ’ญ

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 โค 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

FullSizeRender (12)

FullSizeRender (13)

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 recommendย trying that one out if you are in search of a good one.

FullSizeRender (11)

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 actuallyย 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.

FullSizeRender (10)

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

IMG_0201

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..

FullSizeRender (9)

IMG_0204

The last item i received was this SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara. Always excited to try new mascaras, especially from good brands like SMASHBOX. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_0202

Here is how my eye looks without any mascara:

FullSizeRender (14)

Here is how it looks with SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara:

FullSizeRender (15)

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. โค

Thanks for reading dolls, please leave comments and your thoughts for me to read and reply to! ๐Ÿ˜€ I missed you guys!

AWESOME ColourPop HAUL #1!!! Birthday Edition โœจ๐Ÿ‘‘โœจ

Hi everybody! ๐Ÿ˜ I am so excited rightnow because i just recieved my first package from ColourPop Cosmetics today when i got home from work.๐Ÿ˜ So how could i not get on that and start taking pictures, swatching products, and post this for you loves! ๐ŸŽ€ 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!

๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’šโค๏ธ

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 ๐Ÿ’–

image

Here are three Ultra Matte lip colors he bought for me and more are coming, so YAY! ๐Ÿ’– I am literally in love with all of these colors, let me show you the swatches!

image

(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! ๐Ÿ’˜ Love at first sight baby! I am so excited to get the other colors next week ๐Ÿ˜ˆ They are truly matteย 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 liquidย 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! โค๏ธ

Eyeshadow time!! I wanted bright colors since i have a lot of neutrals as it is, wait until you see these colors!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ

ย 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! ๐Ÿ’œ I cannot WAIT to do some makeup looks/tutorials with these guys!

Swatch Time!

image

(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! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’—

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’„

image

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

image

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’„

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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! โค

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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