NOVEMBER FAVORITES HITS & MISSES!!! | (EXPENSIVE PRODUCT FAIL)


Hey everyone hope you all had a good week and have a wonderful weekend. Today's post I want to share some of my favorites and not so favorites of this past month of November. Without further more let's get right into it. I am going to be starting with favorites then we will talk about the items that I didn't really enjoy using. First favorite of this past month as been the CoverGirl vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation. This foundation applied to my face very smoothly since its more of a creamy foundation not to thick of a consistency. This item also looks flawless on the face when first applying it, the two issues I have with this product is that thru out the day it can get a bit shiny which I am not a big fan of. The last thing I am not a big fan of is that this product is in a glass bottle which can be tricky to travel with and the plastic top I don't understand why its there since it doesn't even stay on that well. Other then that I don't have a problem with this item, I love that this as a pump to it so it makes it a lot easier to control on how much product you using at a time. I love that this product gives my face a fresh glow look. 

Second favorite is the Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I have been loving using this eyebrow gel mascara so much this past month, its so easy to work with and applies so quick to the brows one swipe of this product and my brows are ready for the day. This doesn't apply to much color on the brows which is a great thing since that's what I was the most worried about when buying this item. I do have some things that I don't like about this item first is that this smells like straight up alcohol which as me a bit concerned, a other thing I don't like about this item is that when you put the spooily in the product and when you pull it out of the tube the product sometimes clumps up on the spoil which is a little annoying since you have to take a extra few seconds to scrap off the product. I can't really complain since this item was less then five dollars. Overall good product if you are looking for something easy to fill in your brows with.

Last favorite for this post is the Maybelline big eyes mascara. I am going to be posting a whole review post talking about if I liked this mascara and what I didn't like about it. If you are interested in what else I have to say about this item keep a look out for that post. Anyways I have been really enjoying this mascara so far. This is on the more wet of mascaras which I don't mind. You don't have to work a lot with this product to get the lashes to look like how you want them. I love that this mascara gives me that volume that I look for in a mascara. Really good product for the price. Now lets move on to products that really didn't work out for me. First item that didn't really work for me is the micro mini pro beauty blender, I thought this would be the perfect beauty blender to blend out concealer and really get into those inner corner of the eyes when I was buying this. I just have found myself not reaching for this item at all. If you guys have used this before let me know in a comment below what did you use it for? I would love to get some use out of this item.

Last product that didn't really work out for me is the NARS radiant creamy concealer. This concealer was to creamy for me even tho it blended into my skin flawless and looked amazing under the eyes. When wearing this product for a a couple of hours it started to clump up and look dry under the eyes. The staying power to this product was terrible it vanished after only wearing it for a couple of hours. This was just a big miss for me which is unfortunate since this is a more of a expensive item. I don't feel to guilty on throwing this item away since I did a lot of use out of it. Trust me guys I really did try and wanted this concealer to work out it just didn't for me. 

That's all for this favorites post for this past month. Hope you all enjoyed reading this post. Sorry if this was a little on the negative side of November favorites. In a comment below let me know some the beauty items you guys have used up in this past month. I love reading your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

LET'S CHAT ABOUT: THE COVERGIRL VITALIST HEALTHY ELIXIR FOUNDATION | NEW FAVORITE?!?


Hey everyone hope you are doing well and had a good week, Have a amazing weekend! Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation that I have been using for the last couple of months and have a few thoughts on it that I want to share with you all today. Without further more let's get started on this review.

First thing that I noticed that I loved about this foundation that the bottle came with a pump which always makes the application of the product a lot easier and the pump gives you a lot more control on how much product comes out at once. I also notice that the pump as a lock to it so when you are done using this product all you have to do is give the the pump a twist and it locks which is another nice thing you don't have to worry about product spilling if you accidentally knock it over. I have two downfalls when it comes down to this bottle first downfall is that this bottle is glass which it makes it harder to travel with and the last downfall is that extra plastic cover that it has, I just don't see the need for it and it doesn't really stay on at well.  

Anyways enough about the bottle and lets move on to talking about the product it self. This is a thick foundation but I don't feel like I have to use a lot of product to get the results that I want, so I would say a little goes a long way. I use about a full pump and a half and that covers my whole face and neck. The coverage to this item in my eyes is a medium to full coverage this is a build able product so you can build it up if you wanted more of a full coverage look. This foundation does have a scent to it I can definitely smell it when I am applying this to my face, so if you don't like foundations with a scent you might not like this one. The scent to me smells very herbal like I don't mind it but for someone who is bothered by scents then I can see where you would not like this item.

I have found that this foundation applies to face very smoothly and flawless. I love that this a lite weight foundation so you can't feel it on the face. The finish to this foundation I have found to be a semi matte product. I like to set this foundation with a matte powder since I do see that thru out the day this product gets a little too dewy for my taste. This product does stay on your face all day along which is always a good thing when foundation last on your face all day. If you were thinking about taking flash photography with the product I wouldn't since this as a spf of 20 which is a good thing for the summer and all year around, but not so much when it comes down to taking photos.

I love that this product comes in a wide rage of shades to chose from. This foundation cost $ 9.98 which is not a bad price point for a overall good foundation. Is this my favorite? I have to say no but if I was in a pinch and I needed a face product this would be one that I would grab. 

That's all for this review on the Covergirl Vitalist Elixir Foundation. Hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful if you were thinking about buying this for yourselves. In a comment below let me know if you guys have tried out this product and what were thoughts on it. I love reading your guys feedback. Can you also tell me how many times I said the word foundation in this post? (lol) As always talk you all soon.

DRUGSTORE HAUL!!! | JUST (some) OF MY EVERYDAY BEAUTY/SKINCARE ESSENTIALS


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a great week so far, and have amazing weekend ahead. Today's post I want to share with you all a drugstore haul which also happens to be just some of my beauty/skincare essentials. Without further more lets just jump right into this.  First item I picked up is my beloved Batiste Dry Shampoo in (tropical). I have been using a different dry shampoo the last few weeks and I already miss my batiste one. There really is nothing better then this dry shampoo. 

Second item that I got form the drugstore is not a essential at all since I have never have tried it yet. That is the Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser / Mask. I have only heard and read amazing things about this cleanser and how it cleared people's skin from acne so I thought why not give it a try and see if it does the same for my skin. Third item I got is the St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub. I normally get the apricot scrub from there line, but this one caught my eye. I have used this once already since buying it and my first impressions of this item it as a very pleasant scent to it. This scrub is more of a gentle of a scrub but it still exfoliates your skin, so far I have been enjoying this. 

Next item that I picked up from the drugstore is something I use almost once week that is the Johnson's baby shampoo. If you have been reading my blog for a while then you have seen this item tons of times here on my blog. I love using item to clean my makeup brushes and sponges this shampoo gets them clean and leaving them soft this also as a nice calming scent to it. Second to last item that I picked up is a repurchase that is the Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. I love this mascara it gives me the crazy dramatic volume that I look for in a mascara and it doesn't flake thru out the day. The only difference with one that I got that this one is waterproof. I have used this already since buying it and I will be making a update kind of post because I do see a little of a difference between the water proof one and the non waterproof one. Keep a eye out for the post soon.

The last item I picked up are my holy grail Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes. If you guys remeber that these are the fragrance free ones and I didn't like them when I tried them a while back ago. I thought why not give them a other chance and see if I can make these work for me as well as the other ones do. 

That's all for this drugstore haul, hope you all enjoyed this post. And maybe found something that you might want to go and pick up for yourself. In a comment below let me know what you guys have picked up form the drugstore lately and if there is any beauty items that you guys think I should be trying. I love hearing your guys feedback. Talk to you all soon.

EMPTIES | PRODUCTS THAT I HAVE USED | REPURCHASES +MORE!!!


Hey everyone hope you are all doing good, and had a great week so far. Have a amazing weekend ahead. Today's post I want to share with you all a few products that I have used up and give you my final thoughts on them and if I would repurchase them again. Without further more let's just jump right into it. First item is the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. I love this hand cream it leaves my hands  feeling soft, moisturized without that greasy looking that some hand creams leave behind. If I am not mistaking I believe this is my second tube of this item. I would repurchase this in a heart beat, I think this time around I will be buying the big bottle one since this little tube doesn't last very long this kind of size of hand cream is better for on the go not a everyday use. 

Second empty is the St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub, I love the st lves line there products have never let me down and this item is no different. The St. Ives apricot scrub really gets all of the dirt, oil or dead skin that you may have on your face. You do need to apply some kind of moisturizer after using this item since it does leave your face feeling a little dry. The effect that this product as after using it is so wroth the little drying that I might be feeling, this scrub almost gives my face a glow after and my makeup applies so much easier and smoother after using this item. I have re bought this already but a little different stay tuned there will be a review post on it.

Third item that I used up is the Batiste Dry Shampoo, I know I have talked about this dry shampoo in a other empties before so this one will be my second bottle that I used. I love this dry shampoo it smells like coconuts which I love the smell of coconuts but not to over powering. The Basite dry shampoo gets rid of any oil or sweat that you might have in your hair from the night before or even that day. I also love that it doesn't weigh down your hair or leave a lot of build up in your hair after a couple of uses. I have not repurchase this yet but its on my list of beauty items that I need from the drugstore.  

Next empty is the Tone Radiant Glow Illuminating Body Wash. This body wash was ok I liked the smell to it, to me this smelled like fruit mixed in with flowers is that weird ?. I say it was ok because the first couple of weeks of using this product I felt something always starching me but not really I cant explain it. The bottle it said it as diamond dust in it so maybe that was what I was feeling on my skin. I just don't know about this body wash so I wont be re buying this again. 

Next empty is the Covergirl Total Tease Mascara, I have done a whole post talking about how I liked this product and what I didn't like about it. If you are interested in what I have to say about it please feel free to go give that post some love. This mascara was ok it just didn't give me that crazy over the top volume that I look for in a mascara. This item is more of a everyday kinda of on the natural side of mascara. The thing I don't understand about this item is the wand one side of the wand it as full bristles, while the other side only the tip as bristles on it and the rest of the wand as nothing. With the wand begin like that I found it hard to apply the mascara and I was afraid that the tip with the bristles would poke me in the eye. I would not be re repurchase this again.  

Fourth to last empty is the Bosica Makeup Melter cleansing oil - balm. Please keep in mind that this jar is not the full sized product, this is a sample sized one that I got using my V.I.P member points at sephora. I have bought the fulled sized product of this since using this sample sized one. I have done a full review on this prodect here on my blog talking about how I liked it and what I didn't like about it, if you are curious on what I have to say about this beauty item please feel free to go and give that post some love. This was a great item it took off all my makeup even my mascara with no problem. The scent to this product was ok I thought they could have done a better job on that. Overall very happy that I bought the full size jar of this since I was careful not to use the whole sample sized jar in a week since its a small sample. 

Third to last empty of this post is the Clinique moisture surge extended thirst relief moisturizer. This is a other sample sized product. I am planning on getting the full sized one very soon. This is such a amazing moisturizer, its lite enough where its the perfect moisturizer to apply before your makeup since it won't mess up the application of it but yet it still  hydrates your face. Look out for a whole review post on this item once I buy the full sized product. I will hands down be repurchase this product again.

Second to last empty is the Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes. If you guys have been following me for a while then you know that I love these makeup wipes and there is always one packet of these in a empties post. These are just amazing wipes they remove all of your makeup even waterproof mascara with no problem and with just one wipe.  Already have a other packet of these with my makeup and going to get two more packets of these since I don't like running out of them. If you guys haven't tried out these makeup wipes yet you need to you will never want to be without them again. 

Finally the last empty for this post is the Eucerin Original Healing hand cream. I believe this as been in a empties post before and I also believe that I said I didn't enjoy this product because it didn't really hydrate my hands and also left a greasy feeling after applying it. I don't know why I keep re buying this item maybe is do to the fact this is the cheapest hand cream at my drugstore. 

That's all for this empties | repurchases, hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what beauty items have you guys used up in the last or two months, I love hearing you guys feedback as always talk to you all soon.

REMOVING MAKEUP WITH A CLEANSING OIL-BALM | WROTH THE MONEY???


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a great week. Today's post I want to talk about the Bosica Charcoal Makeup Melter (cleansing oil balm) that I have been using for a couple of weeks now and have gather a few thoughts on it that I would like to share with you all. Without further more let's get started. I got a sample sized one a couple of months ago from Sephora for begin a member of there V.I.P. progarm, I enjoyed it so much that I had to go out and get the full sized jar of it. 

This is a 3.0 oz jar which is not bad, since the jar it self is filled to the top. The Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter cleansing oil balm smells nice and clean it as a minty scent to it but its more of a clean mint smell. To the touch this product feels nice and smooth, to me this feels like a gel cleanser when I scooped it out with my fingers. The reason why scoop it out with my fingers is because the sample jar that I got didn't come with a scooper like this one did.

 When activated by water this product turns into this white milky soapy consistency. I would recommend that you warm this product with your hands before you apply it to your face. I have found that if you don't warm it up in your hands the product doesn't work as good. That is just a tip that I have found works for me.

This product didn't bother my eyes at all or made my vision blurry, I found with some eye makeup removers they blur my vision. This removed all of my eye makeup even my mascara with out any problem. My face felt nice and hydrated and not over drying after using this item, I also felt like my face got cleaned and removed all of my makeup. 

The only downfall I have with this is that I feel like I have to use a lot of product to get all of my makeup off, maybe since I have this scopper now it will help with that and getting the right amount I need for my face. The Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter cleansing oil balm will cost you $32.00 which I know seems like a lot for a cleanser but I think its wroth the money this makes taking off you makeup so easy and I truly believe it removes all of your makeup.

That's all for this review on the Bosica Charcoal Makeup Melter cleansing oil balm. Hope you all enjoy this post and maybe found it helpful in some way. Let me know in a comment below if you guys have tried this item out or something like this and what were your thoughts on it. I love hearing your guys feedback. Talk to you all soon.

SUMMER INTO FALL 2017 OUTFIT OF THE DAY!


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well and had a wonderful week. For today's post I want to share with you all a outfit of the day that I wore a couple of days ago. If you have been following me here for a while I am sure you have seen this maxi dress before, but this is my to go maxi dress when I want to wear a long but soft and comfortable dress for the day. I bought this dress a couple of years at Nordstrom. I paired it with this jean jacket form H&M since it was a little chilly out that day. This is one of my favorite outfits to wear on days where I want to look put together but still comfortable, I also love how easy it is to take this outfit to summer into the fall season. 

That's all for this outfit of the day, hope you all enjoyed this post. As always talk to you all soon.
