IMG_0434

Happy Monday Everyone!

I can’t believe we are so close to 2018 ending, where did this year go? None the less this year has been a roller coaster and I’m looking forward to finding the silver lining in all that I have lived through this year. I created this look in honor of the year ending and thought it would be a great look for a New Year’s party.

A Blue Beauty Haul

IMG_0612

Happy Monday Everyone!

Welcome Back to my blog. I know it’s been a while since I posted on my blog. So to make it up to you all I wanted to share a haul and explain a bit why I have been absent. So while I was gone I did a little bit of shopping and I started a new job. I also have been working on my personal relationships. I also have been nurturing my relationship with myself something that continues to be a top priority. I really needed a break to work on the real parts in my life. I hope you all can understand why I have been gone for so long and can forgive my absence. So now onto the haul.

I was in dire need of a few staple items and others were a simple treat to myself for accomplishing a few of my goals. There was a bit of a blue common theme with all the items I picked up.

My Favorite High-end Highlighters

IMG_0253

Happy Monday Everyone!

This past weekend I went to a local beauty convention and it got me thinking about how when I started my makeup journey I didn’t know how to distinguish between what kind of product was going to work with my skin and the products that the beauty gurus were “selling me”. I am easily steered into peer pressure and ended up buying product that completely sucked. If I had to tell my younger self what products I should be investing in I would want her to know this about high-end highlighters.

Highlighting can be such a intimidating thing so start with a versatile product that will give you more bang for your buck. I do have to point out that the highlights I mention come from my collection and there are plenty of other great highlights, but these are the ones I wish I knew about sooner.

IMG_0247

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette will provide you all you need until you are ready to move onto a more power punching highlight. This palette has three shades that can be used all over the skin. It’s soft enough to be worn every day and can be built upon each other to create a more dramatic look for school dances and parties.

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt highlight is a next level highlighter. It brings two different tones that allow you to mix and create a really show stopping look. The Mean Money highlighter can be worn every day and if you mix it with Hu$tla Baby it creates a really show stopping look.

IMG_0243

This Dose of Colors Highlighter by the Desi X Katy is one of my absolute favorites. This highlighter look a bit dark in the pan, but when applied to my skin it’s absolutely stunning. If I build it up it definitely is a show stopper.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post style.

Let me know what other beauty product I should do next?

Have a great weekend and I will see you all on Monday!

Empties + I hit pan on – Beauty Products

IMG_0235

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am excited to share with you all some beauty product that I have finished up + some that I have hit pan on, yay! As you all know my goal is to use up any product that I purchase. That is not the case for every product in my beauty collection. I thought I would share this historic moment with everyone I finished three products, plus hit pan on four products.

IMG_0235

I am hoping to keep this momentum going and will make this a series on the blog if you all enjoy knowing what products I finish up.

IMG_0232

First up are the products I managed to completely finish. I finished two concealers and a mini dry shampoo. I have been tackling quite a few face products because they have gotten out of control. I definitely need to stop buying concealers I have way too many.

IMG_0241

IMG_0234

These are all the products that I hit pan on and I am so excited because I normally don’t stick to one product long enough to see the pan. I’m crossing my fingers that these will soon be finished so I can start tackling other products in my makeup collection.

What are some products that you are working on finishing up? Do you get just as excited as I do when you finish a makeup product? 

Have a great day and I will see you on Friday.

Fenty Beauty- Mattemoiselle Plush Lipstick

 

 

IMG_9561

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am swatching the Fenty Beauty- Mattemoiselle Plush Lipstick and giving you my first impression of these lipsticks. I picked up three shades: S1ngle, Spanked and Candy Venom. Yes I purchased the most wearable shades she brought out in her collection. I knew I didn’t want to buy any colors that were just going to sit around collecting dust. At $18 each lipstick you best believe I wasn’t going to buy a shade I would only wear once.

One thing I have noticed is that these are so creamy and moisturizing. They glide on and you have instant color. One thing to be careful about is that with the rounded tip you can’t be too precise while drawing your cupids bow. I had to use a lip brush to make sure I got the sharpest application.

Overall I love how long they stayed on my lips and that the color didn’t disappear. I have been reaching for S1ngle and Spanked because they don’t dry my lips out in this cold weather. I am saving Candy Venom for Spring time.

Have you tried these lipstick? If so, what is your opinion on them?

Have a great day and I will see you on Friday!

IMG_9929

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my new favorite red lip paint aka liquid lipstick. I am a sucker for a gorgeous red shade and this one did not disappoint. I am always trying so many lip products just trying to find one that will last longer and feel comfortable on my lips. I think I may have found the perfect red shade for any special occasion.

I need to take a moment and acknowledge this amazing packaging it’s such a unique packaging and it’s so easy to find in your purse or on your vanity.

The pigmentation on this product is phenomenal and the lasting power is crazy. I don’t have to touch up my lips through out the day. Keep in mind that you can’t chow down a giant burger because in that instances the burger will win! Overall for normal wear and tear this liquid lipstick exceed my expectations.
