BEST $3.50 ELF PRODUCT THAT I HAVE TRIED!!!


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well and had a fantastic week so far. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the E.L.F Intense Lnk Eyeliner in (blackest black). I have been using this item for a couple of weeks now and have gather some thoughts on it. This liquid eyeliner is super lightweight, so easy to work with, won't tug on the eye when applying the product which is a great thing to find. I also found it super easy to find a good grip to hold on to it since its like holding a marker. 

Love that this liquid eyeliner as a nice felt tip to it, which I have always found easier to get a nice crisp line. The tip of this felt tip eyeliner is super thin and pointed that it makes it easy to get really close to the lash line. I was truly shocked and surprised how pigmented and black it went on, and it is still nice pigmented after the couple of weeks of using it. I have always had bad luck with ELF products but this particular product changed my luck around. 

This eyeliner didn't smudge off or flake off thru out the day it stayed on all day with that nice black intense look to it. I have to be honest I was really impressed with this item. Last few things I want to say about the ELF Intense Ink Eyeliner is that this dries down to a glossy finish which I don't mind but I really would love it more if it was a matte finish. This eyeliner comes off the eyes super easy when you are ready to take it off for the night. 

The cost of this eyeliner $3.50 which is not a bad deal at all for such a great eyeliner. The only downfall I have with this item is that I wish they had a waterproof one. 

That's all I have to say about the ELF Intense Ink Eyeliner, hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful in some way. In a comment below let me know of any great eyeliners that you guys have been trying and that you think that I should be trying out to. Talk to you all soon.

TARGET HAUL 2017 | A MIXTURE OF FALL SWEATERS + MORE!


Hey everyone hope you are doing well, and have a amazing weekend. Today's post I want to share with you all a Target haul that I picked up a while ago and almost forgot about it. This haul is going to be mostly consist of sweaters and two tank tops and one t shirt. Anyways let's just jump right into it. First thing I picked up isn't a sweater at all its a white razor back tank top, that I have been loving layering under jackets and wearing it on its own with just some black leggings since its longer in the back. 

Next piece of clothing that I got is a t shirt don't worry we will get into the sweaters. (Lol). This t shirt is a band t shirt, I love how soft and comfortable it is on the body. I also love its a little longer in the front and back so it makes it a perfect shirt to wear with leggings or yoga pants. Third piece of clothing item that I picked up is this quarter sleeve length Star Wars lite sweater this is also a other super soft and comfortable sweater that I love layering with a jacket for when it gets a little cooler outside. 

Next is the last tank top that I picked up this is a other super lite tank that I love wearing on it own or layered with a jacket. Second to last piece of clothing is a little bit more heavier sweater but also a quarter sleeve length sweater. This shirt came in so many different colors that I am thinking about going back and getting some different colors. This is super comfortable and it keeps you warm with out sweating you out, I find this is the perfect sweater to wearing right now since its not freezing cold yet. 

The last sweater that I picked up in this haul is this long sleeve blue sweater a other super soft and comfortable sweater. You won't be able to tell in this photo but this sweater as a slit on the side to give it a little more interest, I also love that this shirt get tight also the arms so it doesn't lay on your body like a big bag. Which I find some sweaters to do.

That's all for this Target Haul. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. And found something that you might want to pick up for yourselves. Let me know in a comment below if you guys want to see any of these shirts and sweaters as a whole outfit of the day. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

IS IT A SUPER CHEAP DUPE FOR A HIGHLY LIKED HIGH PRODUCT??? | LOREAL PAIRS VOLUMINOUS PARADISE MASCARA


Hey everyone hope you are doing well. Today's post I want share my thoughts on the Loreal Pairs Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara and also share with you guys on how much this mascara reminds me of the too face better then sex mascara, could it be a dupe for a high end product? Without further more lets get right into it. The packaging to this product is super cute right a way it reminded me of the high end mascara by too faced called better then sex. Expect this lid is a lot lighter then the too faced, if you ever held a better then sex mascara you know the lid to that mascara as some weight to it. 

The wand it self is really nice and fat, the bristles are short but there is a lot of them on the wand. The wand it self as a tiny bit of a hour glass shape to it but its not as defined as the too faced one. Lets talk about some of the positive things that I found when using this product. First positive thing is that this mascara won't transfer on to the lids when applying it which is a very nice since this product is wet, does dry out a little bit after using it a couple of times. I also love that this mascara gives my lashes tons of volume, and that this is a very build able mascara I had no trouble on applying a second coat on to my lashes without the product getting  spidery and clumpy looking.

The last positive thing that I noticed when using this item that it didn't flake off thru out the day it stated put. Now lets talk about some of the stuff I didn't like when using this product. First is since this is a wet mascara when I went to use this item for the first time the product came out in clumps which is a little annoying but since it as dried out a bit I don't seem to have that problem anymore, I also notice when applying this for the first time it went on the lashes with clumps which is very annoying because it made the applying process a lot longer since I had to be scraping off some the clumps away on the side of the tube. 

Last thing I want to mention that I didn't really like about this item is that when it came time to take this mascara off my lashes I found myself rubbing a little at my eyes for it to all come off. This mascara is $ 9.99 which is not bad of a price. Overall thoughts I really enjoy this mascara even tho it as some downfalls I can see past at.  Now to answer the question in the tile is this a dupe for a high end mascara?

I can see a lot of similarities in this product that I saw in the too faced better then sex mascara, like the tons volume, the packaging is very a like, the wand it self looks like the high end item. This mascara is wet just like the high end one. Those are just some of the similarities that I noticed when using this item. I think I can safely say this is a very close dupe for the high end mascara, if are looking for a mascara that will give you the tons of volume that the too faced better then sex mascara does but you don't want to spend the money I would say try out the Loreal Pairs Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. 

That's all for this post. Hope you all enjoyed this and maybe found it helpful in some way. In a comment below let me know if you agree that the Loreal Pairs Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara is a very close dupe to the too face better then sex mascara. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES 2017 | ITEMS THAT I HAVE BEEN REACHING FOR A LOT


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well, and had a wonderful week. Today's post I am going to be sharing with you all my favorite products that I have been enjoying using this past month. I know there is not a lot of products but these have been items that I have been really reaching for a lot this past month. Without further more let's jump right into it.

First favorite of this past month as been the Essence pure NUDE highlighter in (be my highlight). I love this highlight I love that it is so natural looking on the face without emphasize texture. This as a stain finish to it so there is no glitter or shimmer to it which I love not a big fan of glitter or shimmer in highlights. This highlight as a gold undertone to it but when I apply to the face the gold tones don't show up. Overall really have been liking this item and will keep using it also love how affordable it is.

Next favorite is the El.F. Intense Ink Eyeliner. I cant believe how black this eyeliner is! Too be honest with you guys elf products have always been a big miss for me they never really worked for me, so I wasn't really keeping my hopes up with this item. Did it surprise me, since this is shaped like a marker it makes it super easy to hold and work with. Love that its a felt tip. You really can get close to the lash line with this product. Great product something I would recommend you trying you really have nothing to loose since its so affordable. 

The last favorite of this month is the new but not so new anymore Loreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. I am going to be doing a whole review post on this item soon here on my blog so if you are interested in reading more on what I have to say then keep a eye out for that post. Anyways I love this mascara it gives me the over the top volume that I look for in a mascara. This is a very wet mascara, I also love that this is a very build able mascara. The wand it self as that hour glass shape that I love in the better in sex mascara from too faced. I can go on and on about how much I love this mascara and how I think everyone should give it try for themselves, I am going to leave it there until my review post.

That's all for my September favorites. Hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what you guys have been loving this past month, I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

SUMMER EMPTIES | PRODUCTS THAT I HAVE USED UP!!!


Hey everyone hope you all are having a great week so far. For today's post I want to share with all some of the products that I have used up lately. Without further more lets get started. The first item that I used up are the Clinique take the day off micellar cleansing towelettes. This is my second packet that I have used up, I just think these wipes do a great job on taking off your makeup without leaving your skin feeling dry. I don't think they do a good job on removing mascara. I would repurchases these again. Next empty is a perfume which you don't see a lot in my empties post. The perfume is the Elizabeth And James Nirvana Black.  I do still have a tiny bit left in the bottle but because it as been sitting on my makeup tray for so long without using it the scent as changed on me so I thought it was time to get rid of it. I love this perfume it smells amazing and I loved layering it with the white nirvana.

Third empty is the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream this hand cream really does what a hand cream is to do it moisturized my hands without leaving them feeling greasy. Overall good cream. I already bought a other one that's how much I like this item. Next empty is a other hand cream its the Vaseline intensive care hand cream this was ok it didn't moisturize my hands as good as the Cera Ve hand cream. Next empty is a other hand cream this past month or so my hands have been so dry its crazy.... its the Vaseline intensive care essential healing hand cream, this was a other ok item again it didn't perform as well as the Cera Ve did. 

 Next product that I have used up is something that I have been wanna to try and was so excited that I got to try a travel sized bottle of it. That is the Clean On ME Soap & Glory creamy moisture shower gel. This body wash is a very heavy scented product, so if you don't like very scented body products you are not going to like this. You only need to use a little bit of this item since it lathers up pretty quick with just little product on the hand. The scent doesn't last to long but you do smell it for a couple of minutes after using it. 

The next beauty item that I have used up is the Buxom Lash Mascara. This was a good mascara for a everyday bases. This gave my lashes lots of volume but its not the volume that I was hoping for its more for a everyday volume if that makes any sense at all. The wand to this mascara is big and fat, which I like. The formula was a very wet one. Overall good item would I buy it again no just because I look for over the top volume in a mascara and this one just gave me a a everyday look on my lashes. 

The fifth to last empty of this month are the Sephora Blotting papers. These blotting papers were good they removed any oil from my face without removing any makeup. They had a very tiny scent of flowers to them but nothing you would notice when using them. I also love that these were only ten dollars and come with 100 sheets. The Cover Girl blotting papers only come with 50 papers and they cost close to 10 dollars to.

Next empty is a sample that I got when I went to Sephora that is the Shiseido Wrinkle Resist Eye Cream. I cant say much about this item since it was only a sample. What I can say is that I really enjoyed it. This eye cream was a nice thick cream so it was the prefect eye cream to use at night. The scent to this product was very pleasant and not overpowering. This eye cream went under eyes smoothly. Third to last empty is the Burt's Bees lip Shimmer in (watermelon). This was a nice chap stick with a bit of a tint and shimmer. Loved wearing this on days were I didn't know what color of lipstick I wanted. This was super easy to apply. Not the best long lasting lip product. 

Next empty is something that I have talked about here on my blog before and here and there still mention it because I love it that much. That is the Loreal Blend Artist infallible Sponge. This is such a great beauty tool it blends in your foundation bb cream or any other product that you may want to use this tool for flawless. This sponge is super soft and squish, it also doesn't absorb water. I have already bought a other one of these. 

Finally the last product that I have used up is the H + W Skin- Rx Moisturizing Mask. This product smelled nice smelled a little to much like perfume for me. This is a sheet mask normally sheet masks are wet but this one was super wet the packaging was half way filled with oils. I loved that this sheet mask stayed on my face for the most part. After taking the mask off I noticed there was a lot of product on my face left over I  massaged what I could but the extra I had to wipe off there was no way that much product could be massage into my face. I also noticed after using this item that my face felt sticky, which is something I don't want in a mask. On the plus side my face did feel hydrated and it felt like I had applied moisturizer on my face. Overall it was ok I don't see myself repurchasing this again.  

That's all for my summer empties. I hope you all enjoyed this long post. In a comment below let me know what products have you guys used up lately. I love hearing you guys feedback. Always talk to you all soon.

Hey everyone hope you all had a great week so far. Today's post I want to share with you all a beauty haul that I picked up lately. First item that I picked up is something that I have bought before and really enjoyed it. That is the Loreal Blend Artist Infallible Sponge. This beauty sponge does a beautiful job in blending your foundation or bb cream. Next item is the El.f. Intense Lnk Eyeliner  I have used this already and have some thoughts on it. I am not going to share them on this post because I am planning on doing a whole post talking about this item and if I liked it or not. What I can say is that I am pretty shocked and impressed with item and very happy that I bought it. 

Third item I picked up is the Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Tapered Shadow Brush. As you can see I haven't even took the brush out of the packaging yet. That's because I don't have a cup to store it in yet nor do I have eye shadows to use this brush with. Once I get some eye shadows and use this brush I will be doing a update post on this item and letting you guys know my thoughts on it and if its worth the money. 

Next item is something I picked up because youtuber makeupbytiffanyd was talking about how much she loves this brush, so I went out and bought it. This is a other brush that I haven't took out of the packaging for the same reasons. I will also be doing a update post on this item and letting you guys know what were my thoughts on this tool. 

Last beauty item that I picked up is the not so new anymore Loeal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. I have used this product already since buying it. So far I have been really enjoying this mascara and I think slowly its becoming my favorite mascara. 

That's all for this beauty haul I know it was kinda of a small haul next time there will be a bigger haul. Anyways hope you guys enjoyed this post and fond something that you might want to try also. Let me know if you guys have tried out any of these items already and what were your thoughts on them. Also let me know what you guys have picked up from the drugstore or Ulta lately.

WHAT I"M LOVING | AUGUST FAVORITES 2017


Hey everyone hope you are all doing good and had a good week, hope you all have a great weekend. Today's post I am going to be sharing some of my favorites from this past month I know its not a lot but these are truly have have been my favorites. I know I am a little late on the monthly favorites but better late then never right?....

First favorite of this past month is the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion + pump. I have done a whole post talking about what were my thoughts on it and how I liked it if you are interested in seeing more on what I had to say about this product then please feel free to go and give that post some love. This moisturizer really does moisturize your face leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft and ready for makeup. I like using this item at night and before I apply makeup, since this is a lite weight product I find that it doesn't mess with my makeup application. Even tho its a lite weight moisturizer you don't need a lot of product. I would recommend this to anyone who as dry to combination skin type.  

Second item that I have been really enjoying using this past month is the Bosica Charcoal Makeup Melter cleansing oil balm. Just want to say that this is a sample sized of his product not the full sized one. I have found that this oil balm really gets all of my makeup off my face with out over drying it. I was shocked on how well it did when it came down to mascara it really broke down the mascara making it so easy to wash off. The scent it self is ok not my favorite scent that I have smelled in a cleanser.  Overall good product and I would repurchase the full sized tube.

Last favorite that I want to mention is a lip product that is the Aquaphor Advanced Therapy. This so far as been the only lip balm that I have found that as kept my lips from not chapping. I have found with other chap sticks my lips will get chapped again after the balm as worn off, with this item I don't have that problem. This is a thick and rich balm so a little will go a long way. Since this is so thick and rich I feel like I will have this little tube for a while. I like applying this after applying moisturizer so when I am ready to apply lipstick my lips are nice and smooth, also at night before going to bed. I also found it interesting that you can use this balm for other things like your cuticles, dry cracked or irritated skin. I totally recommenced this product to anyone who suffers from chapped lips. 

That's all for this monthly favorites. Hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what have been your favorites from this past month. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.
