SIGMA BRUSH HAUL | FIRST IMPRESSIONS!!!

Hey everyone hope you are doing well, and had a good week so far. Have a amazing weekend! Today's post I want to share with you all a makeup brush haul from Sigma that I have purchased recently. I have been eyeing these brushes for so long. I finally bite the bullet and bought them. Without further more let's just jump right into this. First brush I picked up is the Soft Angled Contour F23 Brush. I haven't used this brush since purchasing it so I don't have lots to say about it but what I can say since getting it is that its super soft to the touch. This brush does have some weight to it when you pick it up. Overall I think it's going to be a good brush for bronzer and contour of course.

The second brush I picked up is the Spotlight Duster F37. I have used this brush and washed it already multiple times since buying it and its as soft as the other brush. This applies highlight beautiful to the cheekbones, its the perfect size for a highlight brush. I also love that this brush doesn't pick up a lot of product. I have washed this brush a few times already and product comes off very easy the best part there is no shedding when washing. Overall very happy with this item and how well it kept its shape after all of the washes I have put it thru. 

Last Sigma brush that I picked up is the Tapered Blending E35 . This is a other brush that I have used already and have washed since buying it. This is a other super soft brush. Love how this blends out my eyeshadow so easy. Picks up just the right amount of product. Overall great brush I would say if you guys don't have this eye shadow brush yet in your collection you need it TRUST ME! it makes blending out eyeshadow so easy and effortlessly. When it came down to washing this brush it was so easy product just came right off no need to be standing there twirling your brush around in soap trying to get the eyeshadow off. By the way there was no shedding in the process.

That's all for this Sigma brush haul and first impressions. Hope you all enjoyed reading this post and maybe you found a new makeup brush that you might want to add your collection. In a comment below let me know if there is any sigma brushes that you think I should have, I love reading your guys recommendations and feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

HIGHLY RATED SEPHORA MASCARA!! | BIG LET DOWN??? :(


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well today and had a good week so far, have a great weekend ahead! Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the Sephora Lash craft Big Volume Mascara I have been using this mascara for a couple of months now and have gathered a lot of thoughts on it. Without further more lets just get right into this. I have to be honest my very first impression of this product was not that great because when I went to apply this to my lashes for the very first time it applied clumpy, The formula it self is very wet which I don't mind but I don't like it when the formula is to wet I like there to be a good balance.

I found it hard to separate my lashes while the product was still wet on my lashes. I also found this to clump my lashes together when trying to apply this on my lashes. The only way I could separate my lashes after it clump my lashes together was to wait for it dry a bit in between applying a second coat. I personally just think that is to much work for just wanting my lashes to look separated and not clump together.  

That's all I have to say about the formula and how it applies let's now talk about the wand and the bristles it self. The wand is a long curvy wand the bristles on the wand are short but there is a lot of bristles on the wand. This is not one of those flexibility wands if you guys are wondering. The only downfall I saw with this long wand is that it picked up a lot of product in the tube, so I found myself scraping off product off the wand before applying it to my lashes. By the end I was done applying this I would have a big clump of product left on top of the tube. You probably don't believe since in the photo above it doesn't look like there is a big clump of product on top of the tube you are just going to have to trust me there was, I cleaned it up for the photo of course. 

I find since this is such a wet mascara it does transfer on to the lids when applying this. Maybe if I waited it out in the hopes that it dries out a little bit and maybe it would help and not make my lashes clump together and transfer on the lids. The positive things about this product is that there is no flaking or fall out thru out the day. And when you are ready to take this mascara off for the night it comes right off the lashes. This mascara retails for $14.00 which is not a bad price point at all. Personally for me this just didn't work and I think there is better mascaras out there that I would buy.

That's all for this review on the Sephora Lash Craft Big Volume Mascara. Hope you all enjoyed reading this post. In a comment below let me know if you guys have tried out this item yet and what were thoughts on it? If you guys have any tips and tricks on how I can make this mascara work a little better for me I would love to hear them. As always talk to you all soon.

MILANI EYE SHADOW PRIMER REVIEW | HONEST OPINIONS!!!


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well, and had a good week. Have a great weekend ahead. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the MILANI Eye Shadow Primer. Without further more let's jump right into it. My first impression of this product wasn't that great, sine when I went to apply this to my eyelids oil came out of the tube instead of the product and it applied a bit to on the oily side for me. I didn't have this problem again when I went to apply this again on to my lids for the second time around. I have found that if you go a while in between uses it can seem to settle a little in the tube and a bit of oil comes first when you go to use again. The trick to fixing that is all you have to do is massage the packaging a bit and it works perfectly again.

Love that this product dries down matte but not only that I find that this item gives my lids a nice and smooth and matte canvas to apply eye shadow on. If you guys don't know already I have oily eyelids and if I don't use a matte primer my eye shadow will crease and fade away very quickly. If you are wondering what the product inside of the tube looks like its just a nude shade.

This primer kept my eye shadows on the lids looking vibrant all day as when I first applied the primer in the morning, I didn't find that I had no creasing thru out the day which is very impressive for beeing a drug store item. I love that this primer let my eye shadows go on smoothly and easily, and it made blending out shadows easy.

A little goes a long way with this item all you need is just a dap smoothed arcoss the eye lid and its enough to last all day long. Overall amazing product really impressed with this and I totally recommend everyone who as not tried it out yet to go out and get your self some totally wroth the money. This primer retails for $7.99.

That's all for this review on the Milani eye shadow primer. Hope you all enjoyed reading this post and maybe found it helpful in some way. In comment below let me know if you guys have tried out this item before and what were your thoughts on it? Also let me know what eye shadow primers you guys are using at the moment. Love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

JANUARY FAVORITES | FEW THINGS I HAVE BEEN LOVING THIS MONTH + SHOES


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well and had a great week. Have a awesome weekend! Today's post I want to share with you all my favorite items that I have been enjoying using and wearing this past month. Without further more let's jump right into it. First favorite of this past month as been been these brown high heels booties. They are not the most comfortable booties in the world but I found that if I wear them for a only a couple of hours I am fine. I wore them this past holiday season and I was fine. I wouldn't recommenced walking a long distance in them. These booties are from Target if you are all wondering.

Next favorite is the MAC Snow Ball Eye Compact/ Rose Gold. These eye shadows are all very pigmented no fall out when applied to the lids. Love all of the neutrals in this compact. Overall great product really been enjoying playing around with this and making up new eye looks. Third favorite from this month as been the Tarte Blush Bazzaar Amazonian Clay Blush Platte. I got this as a gift this past holiday season and haven't put it down since. Love how pigmented all of these blushes are. Also love that these blushes stay on your face all day long. This platte as a beautiful range of rosy blushes overall just amazing and beautiful blushes. 

Last favorite of this month is the Milani EyeShadow Primer. This is a nude eye lid primer. First time using this it went on a little too oily for me but then when I used it again the next day the oiliness went away so I am guessing you need to give this a shake before use. This primer dries quickly which is always a great thing. This primer as no coverage to it so if you are looking for a eye shadow primer that gives you coverage this is not the one for you. I have found that this kept my eye shadows on all day without any creasing or flaking. You cant beat this primer for the price. 

That's all for this January Favorites. Hope you all enjoyed reading this post. Let me know in a comment below what products have you guys been enjoyed using this month. Also let me know if you guys are interested in seeing eye shadow looks using the MAC platte. Love hearing your guys feedback, as always talk to you all soon.

BEAUTY TRASH | PRODUCTS THAT I USED UP!! | FINAL THOUGHTS


Hey everyone, hope you all are doing well have a amazing weekend ahead! Before we get to today's post I want to give you guys a update on a haul I posted last week I did end up returning the cleanser and getting the one I wanted in the first place. Ok now to today's post I want to share with you all products that I have used up lately and let you know my final thoughts on them and would I repurchase them again? Without further more let's get into it. First item I used up is the Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo as many of you know this isn't my first pick of dry shampoo that will always be my Batiste, but the tresemme fresh start is not a bad dry shampoo at all it gets rid of all the oil out of my hair. There is a little build up to this but its not bad. The only downfall I have with this item is that once you have rubbed it in. I have found its a little hard to brush out. I would repurchased this if the store was out of my batiste dry shampoo or if I needed a dry shampoo in a hurry. 

Second item I have used up is something I feel like its been in many other empties post before that is the Johnson's Baby Shampoo. I use this to wash my makeup brushes with. I find that this shampoo gets my brushes clean and leaves them feeling soft after. I will be repurchasing this again speaking of that I am going to the store right now to pick up a new bottle. Next empty is a other item that as been in many empty posts many times before and I have talked about it lots here on my blog, that is the Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes.I have just have found these are the best wipes to use they get all of your makeup off with just one wipe. When it comes down to water proof mascara I find that I have to work with these wipes a little more for the mascara to come off my lashes. I will never stop re buying these makeup wipes. 

Fourth empty is a travel sized item of the Eucerin Original Healing Hand Cream. I like keeping these traveled sized hand creams in my handbag for when I am on the go. This hand cream was ok it did the job but not one of my favorites. Not sure if I would repurchase this one again. Next empty is something I had a love and hate kind of relationship with. That is the Clinique Acne Solutions BB Cream. I did a whole review post talking about what I liked and what I didn't like about this product. If you are interested to see what else I had to say go give that post some love. I did enjoy this product most of the times. I love that it gives me a full coverage for begin a bb cream, I also love that its very light weight so it feels like you are wearing nothing. The big downfall I had with item is that after wearing it for like I say four hours I saw that my face looked like a oil sleek, I would have to keep blotting my face in order for it not to get shiny on me. That was annoying, I am on the fence if I should get this bb cream again.

Sixth empty is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I just couldn't get this product to work for me. The coverage to this item was horrible it didn't cover any of my dark circles, this would break up after only a couple of hours for wearing. Since this was a very creamy concealer it would cake up under the eyes. Which is not a pretty look on anyone. Overall just a huge disappoint of a product will not be re buying this again. Next item is the Loreal Pairs Artist Foundation Makeup Blender. This is my second sponge that I have bought. I think this a great beauty tool to have it applies makeup flawless to the face, blends out product super easy. This item doesn't get much bigger after damping it under water but its nice and soft and bouncy. I will be repurchasing a other one soon. Ps the cleaning of this sponge is super easy and fast product comes right off.

Next empty is two sample sizes of the Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream. I enjoyed using these samples. From the few times I have used this I have found that this moisturizer is a lightweight but still on the thick side of creams. Absorbs quickly into the skin which is always a nice thing. Makeup applies flawless on top of this moisturizer. This product as a very herbal scent to it which goes away after applying to the face. Would I buy the full sized container of this cream yes I would. Second to last product that I have used up is the Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. As I am sure you can tell from the photo above there is two of these mascaras. One of them is the water proof kind. I loved the non water proof one I thought it applied to the lashes a lot less clumpy. Gave my lashes a lot more volume since my lashes weren't as clumpy and spidery looking. The non water proof one also came off a lot easier then the water proof one. I would not repurchase the water proof one again, but the non water proof one I would buy a other one.

Last empty is the Loreal Brow Stylist Definer Brow Pencil. This was a nice a creamy brow pencil it applied smoothly on and stayed on all day. The pencil it self is a very thin one so it doesn't cover a lot of area then a more thick pencil would. This does come with a spooil which is always a great thing. I would repurchase this again when I run out of my benefit and don't have time to go to sephora to pick up a new one. 

That's all for this empties post. Hope you guys enjoyed reading this post. Let me know in a comment below what products have you guys used up lately. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

FIRST SEPHORA HAUL OF 2018!!!


Hey everyone hope you are all doing good,and have a great weekend. Today I want to share with you all a sephora haul that I picked up recently. I am going to include links to everything I mention, if you don't see a link to a item that I mention in this post then that means I couldn't find that item anymore on line. I know you guys want me to get to the haul already so let's jump right into it. First item that I picked up is the Benfit Precisely, My Brow Pencil in the shade (4). I have used this item once since buying it so far really like it, Love the sliver packaging to this item. In the box this item comes with a how to in case if its your first time filling you your brows. I thought that was a really nice touch.

Second item is something I got for free for being a V.I.P member. I have bought this once before so I was excited to see that they offered it. That is the Blender cleanser solid in chill swirl which I am guessing is new because I have never seen the blender cleanser offer chill swirl before. This smells just like soap, I am guessing the reason they call it chill swirl is because of the color of the soap. 

Third item that I got is the Tarte blush bazaar Platte which if I am not mistaking is limited addition sorry guys. I have used this item since getting it. I am planning on doing a whole review post talking about this product, so if you are interested in reading more of what I have to say about this item come back soon to my blog to read that post. What I can say right now about this product is that all of the blushes are very pigmented and apply to the checks flawless. Love the all the selection of colors that this platte offers. These blushes stay on all day long. Such a amazing item!  

Third to last item that I picked up on this haul is the highly talked about LashCraft Big Volume Mascara. I am super excited to using this mascara and seeing what was all the hype was, hopefully I am not disappointed.

Second to last item that I got is something I need to have in my beauty routine that is the Original beauty blender in the color just chillOriginal beauty blender. I am guessing this is a new color they are offering. I am so happy to have a beauty blender again, I have been trying out drugstore versions of beauty blenders and they just don't live up to the original one. This tool makes face makeup look flawless leaving your skin looking amazing blends product onto to the skin so easily and effortlessly, Just a essential item to have. 

Last item that I picked up is the Murad Acne Control Clarifying Cleanser is actually the wrong cleanser, when I went to sephora I was a in hurry so I wasn't really paying attention to what I picked up until I got home saw it was the wrong product. I am really considering going back to sephora and exchanging this for the right one. The cleanser I am going to be linking in this is the right one, that would be the Murad Anti- Aging Acne Time Release Acnce Cleanser. I have used the time release acne cleanser before its a creamy cleanser that's not to rough on the skin but still leaving your skin feeling clean and moisturized. 

That's all for this post hope you all enjoyed this haul. I am very excited to try out everything I got well expect the cleanser I think I am going to just exchanging it and get the one I wanted look for a update in my next post. If you guys want me to do a review post on any of these items that I bought please let me know in a comment below, and I would be more then happy to do that for you guys. Also in a comment below let me know what you guys have picked up Sephora lately I love trying out new products and hearing your feedback. As always talk to you all soon.
