Glamourous Gold : Eye look

IMG_9157

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all a look I have been rocking all week. I wanted to experiment with some of the makeup I had forgotten about and this is what I came up with. This isn’t a tutorial per say, but it’s super easy to recreate.

I used a gold base from Milani to make the gold eye shadow in this Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette pop and show up true to color. Then I used a dark brown in my L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1 to define my crease and viola!

For a bit of definition in my lash line I put a bit of the black eyeshadow from Wet n’ Wild and finished up the look with my Bite Lipstick in Lingonberry.

A Simple and wearable look in just a few minutes what more can you ask for?!

POPSUGAR Must Have Box – August

24

Happy Friday Everyone!
This month I decided to try a new subscription box and I was not disappointed. I have tried the beauty subscription boxes and I got sick of them so I took a break from subscription boxes and just looked around and saw what was out there. I stumbled upon the pop sugar must have box and I knew I wanted to give it a shot.

Here are a few reasons why:
-It includes more than just beauty
-You get a mix of products (they sometimes send you books!)
-It seemed to be catered for a young woman rather than a teenager (I’m sure they would love it as well)
-I found a coupon code!

So with those reason I crossed my finger and prayed I would get some amazing things in the August box and here is what came inside.

Special Extra
Think Thin Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar

A protein bar that provides with quick energy and won’t make you feel guilty for eating it. Packed with 20g of protein this is the perfect pick me up for a mid day snack.

If you total the price of this box based on suggested retail it would be a little more than $126. I got this box for $34.95 with the $5 off coupon. The original price is $39.95 a month.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this box. It could have been a bomb and I would have wasted $35 or it could of been a nice little surprise, which is exactly what happened. I will use every single thing that was sent. I have been wearing those beautiful earrings every other day because they go with pretty much any outfit I decide to wear. If you ask me I highly recommend you check this box out if you get a chance. You can get yours here.

Do you like subscription boxes? Are you subscribed to the POPSUGAR Must have box?

Have a great weekend!

Sephora Favorites: Give Me Some Lip

IMG_5396

Today I am going to review this lovely little lip sampler from Sephora. I picked it up as a birthday gift to myself and I am pretty happy I managed to get my hands on this.

IMG_5392

First off this retails for $25. It includes 6 different brand lip products. This kit contains lip glosses, lip glazes and lip tints. Overall the color range in this kit is pinks and very wearable colors for every day.

IMG_5394

Bite Beauty
High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb
1.48g/0.05 oz

IMG_5407

This product is a buildable lip crayon/pencil that glides on very smoothly onto the lips. The color is geared more for fall and winter. I describe it as a lighter burgundy color that is much more wearable during the day, but can be build up for a night-time look.

IMG_4919

Buxom
Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly
2mL/ 0.07 fl oz

IMG_5405

This is a very pigmented lip gloss that also has a plumping agent. Once you apply it you immediately begin to feel a tingly sensation. This lip gloss feels a lot heavier than the others this kit has. Overall the color is also a very wearable everyday lip color for fall.

IMG_4909

Fresh
Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment
2.2g/ 0.08 oz

IMG_5402

If you are a chapstick fan and like a little bit of color this is the product for you. This lip treatment is very hydrating and leaves your lips very soft after applying it. The color this gives is something very subtle but flattering one anyone.

IMG_4914

Laura Mercier
Lip Glace in Bare Pink
2.8 g/ 0.1oz

IMG_5404

I was so excited to try this product I had heard so many things about this particular lip glaze. I love the formulation not too heavy but not too light. The color is pretty sheer after you apply it you can’t really see the color (if you do not apply a lipstick, lipliner or lip crayon before the gloss) it gives. I personally wear this on top of a pink lipstick and this gives me that extra shine I enjoy. If you are a fan of just wearing lip glazes and nothing else this is a beautiful color. (see picture below)

IMG_4907

Nars
Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight
4g/0.14 oz

IMG_5406

I was also very excited to try this lip gloss because Nars has some pretty amazing products. This gloss is the lightest of all of the lip glosses in the kit. Once applied on the lips it feels very natural it isn’t sticky. Once on the lips the color does not show up but it does give off a very nice shine. I am most likely going to wear this with some of my lighter lipsticks since it is so sheer and not very pigmented on my lips.

IMG_4904

Tarte
Lipsurgence Lip Luster in Glitzy
3g/ 0.1oz

IMG_5408

If I’m not mistaken this is a full size product. This alone is worth about what this kit cost. I love the lipsurgence from Tarte I own two other colors. The color pay off of this particular one is just like the packaging, it does not disappoint. This does have a lot of glitter particles so if you’re not a fan of sparkly lip products you will not like this particular lipsurgence.

IMG_4912

Overall I think this is well worth the 25 dollars I spent. I am excited I now own and have tried out this kit. If you are a lip junkie or just want a few new items to play around don’t hesitate to purchase this lip kit.

Have you ever purchased a Sephora favorites kit?
Have you ever tried any of these lip products before? If so what did you think of them?

I hope everyone is having a good Wednesday!
