LOREAL PARIS 24HR PRO MATTE FOUNDATION (FULL REVIEW)


Hey you guys hope you are all doing well and had a good week and have a fun weekend. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the Loreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. I have been using this product for a while now and have some thoughts on it that I thought I would come on here and share my opinions on it. Without further more let's get into this review. This foundation comes in a plastic squeeze tube, this is a full coverage foundation.

If I remember correctly I do believe this product as a range of shades to choose from but don't quote me on that since I don't remember. The consistency of this product is medium to thick. When I used this product for the first time since buying it I applied it with a makeup brush and I have to be honest that first time impression wasn't so good. When I went to apply this to the face with the brush the foundation didn't apply so easy and smoothly it took a little bit of more blending then normally I would spend on my foundation. My concealer also didn't apply very well over this foundation, the concealer just didn't blend very well and it just looked cakey and not good.

When applied with a damp beauty blender it went on the face so much smoothly and easy. The blending processes was so much easier. My concealer went on over this product so much better and nicer. I would say if you were to buy this foundation to apply it with a beauty blender the application is so much easier with a sponge. This product as a demi matte finish to it with a very powdery look to it. If you have dry skin during the colder months I wouldn't recommend setting this product with powder, it will just look to heavy on the face. I would go for a setting spray

I found the coverage of this foundation to be pretty much the same when applied with a brush or beauty blender. I still say a beauty blender is the best option. Even tho this a full coverage foundation I found it to be lite weight on the skin it didn't feel like I was wearing foundation. Stayed on all day for the most part, I did have to blot my face once throughout the day. This item retails for $10.99 which isn't a bad price point for a good product. 

Overall thoughts I enjoy using this foundation and would recommend this foundation to anyone who is looking for a full coverage matte foundation for a cheap price point. That's all for this review on the Loreal Paris 24hr Pro Matte Foundation. Hope you all enjoyed reading my thoughts on this product, and maybe found it helpful if you were thinking of buying this item for yourselves. In a comment below let me know what drugstore foundations you think I should be trying out. I love hearing your guys feedback and I am always looking new foundations to try out. As always talk to you all soon.

MISHMASH HAUL | DRUGSTORE ESSENTIALS, FOREVER21,OLD NAVY + MORE!!!


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a good week and have a amazing weekend ahead. Today's post I want to share with you all a pretty mishmash haul of a little of everything that I have been collecting that last few days now. Without further more let's just jump right into this. First clothing item that I picked up is a pair of skinny jeans, these are from Old Navy they nice and fitted around the waist but yet comfy so far so good. Next item are just plain black leggings from Forever21, I had to size down in these since when I bought them before they were to big on my legs.  

Last piece of clothing item that I picked up in this haul is this maxi dress. This dress is also from Forever21, I loved how soft to the touch this felt in store. I am planning on wearing this dress this weekend. Let me know in a comment below if you guys would like to see a outfit of the day post with this dress here on my blog. Last two items that I want share with all are my drugstore essentials that I use on a everyday bases. 

First item are the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. I have talked these to the ground here on my blog so I am not going to get to much into why I love these so much. All I will say is these makeup wipes are hands down the best wipes I have tried, they remove all of your makeup with just one wipe. They are also gentle enough to use on your eyes to remove mascara and eye makeup, you don't need to be rubbing at your eyes to get the makeup off. Overall just amazing makeup wipes, I will keep re buying them. Last item is another item that I think is just a amazing drugstore find that is the Batiste Dry Shampoo I find that this dry shampoo removes all of the oil in my hair without leaving a lot of build up in it. Super easy to rub in and brush out. Just a great product for the money, this as to be my fifth can of this stuff. 

That's all for this mishmash haul hope you all enjoying reading on what I picked up. Let me know in a comment below what you guys have recently picked up at the drugstore, I love hearing from you guys and I am always looking for new products to try out. As always talk to you all soon.

MAGIC?!? | ORIGINS ORIGINAL SKIN RETEXTURIZING MASK


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a good week so far, have a amazing weekend ahead. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on a face mask that I have been using for a couple of months now and have a few thoughts on it that I would like to share with you all. The mask that I am talking about is the Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask. Without further more let's jump right into this. First thing I noticed right away after using this mask for the first time is that a little goes a long way literally the size of a nickel will cover your whole face plus neck (no joke). Don't be fool of the size of the tube. 

Another thing that I noticed after just using this mask just one time I noticed that my face looked more radiant and bright and not so dull looking. It's like magic! My makeup also goes on so much smoothly and easy. I love that this mask as little exfoliating beads in it but the beads in it are not to rough on the skin they are just rough enough to where it does remove any dead skin you may have on your face or neck. You definitely can feel the beads when applying this mask to the face. The mask it self is a pale pink color with jojoba beads in it.

This mask does get very tight when its completely dried on the face. This face mask does have a scent to it, it kinda reminds me of oranges. This mask cost $27.00 which could be a little pricey on the way you look at it. The way I look at it I don't think it's a lot of money for such amazing mask. Overall thoughts I just really enjoy this product and think its worth the money.  

That's all for this review on the Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask. Hope you all enjoyed reading this post, and found it helpful if you were thinking of getting this item for yourself. In a comment below let me know what is your favorite face mask is? I would love to know and I am always looking for a good face mask to try out. As always talk to you all soon.

ESSENCE LASH PRINCESS SCULPTED VOLUME MASCARA | REVIEW + DEMO!!!!


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a great week so far, have a amazing weekend ahead. Today's post I want to share with you all my thoughts on the Essence Lash Princess (sculpted volume mascara) and a video demo of how it applies to my lashes. The video demo will be at the end of this review post. Without further more let's just jump right into this. Let's start off with the outside packaging of this item. It's fine just personally I am not into it I like packaging to be more simple and classic. The plus side there is one little detail about this mascara packaging that I do really like and I feel like not a lot of mascara companies do this that is when you go to close this item it clicks into place letting you know it's closed, you can hear the click when closing. I thought that was a nice very little detail that they added.

I have to be honest I was not really impressed with the wand of this mascara, but then again I have to keep in mind this was a drugstore mascara that was less than ten dollars. The wand it self is just a plasticky wand with short bristles on it. The wand also as a slight curve to it, Not a very flexible wand. 
I have found this mascara to be a wet one but not to wet so I find it that it's easier to work with and easier to get the results you want from this product. 

This mascara separated my lashes with very few clumps and gave my lashes volume I wouldn't say it was crazy volume but I did see a difference in my lashes from one with this product on them and the other without. This item also gave my lashes some length to them which is always nice. Other things that I have found this mascara does is give my stick straight lashes a very nice curl to them, and pushed my lashes up to make it look like I have bigger eyes then I have. Hope that made sense. I would definitely say that this mascara is a little bold of a item but then again a subtle mascara but also not to dramatic. I will say this if you were looking for a dramatic lash mascara you might want to skip this item. 

There was very little transfer on the lids when applying, also very little flaking at the end of the day but that still annoys me that there was flaking at all. This mascara comes off the lashes super easy with just one makeup wipe no rubbing at your lashes necessary. One major down I do have with this item that I have to be honest just really turned me off from repurchasing another makeup product from this brand again, which is unfortunate since there are a few products that I own that I love from this brand. Essence Line does not seal their mascaras or any other product for that matter. I don't like the feeling of not knowing if someone else as opened the product before me. I understand that this is a cheap drugstore makeup line but I don't think it would cost a lot of money to add that extra security to your item so your costumes are not playing russian roulette with your products.

Overall thoughts it was a good cheap mascara.  Would I buy it again no just do to the fact this makeup line as no seal on there makeup, like I have said before that one little thing just turned me off from this line. In a comment below I would love to know your guys thoughts on any of the Essence products or have you tried out this mascara or anything else from this line? As always talk to you all soon.


Here is the video demo of me applying the Essence Lash Princess Sculpted Volume Mascara. Not the best video but you get the point. Enjoy!

ESSENCE COSMETIC | HOT OR NOT | BRONZER ADDITION!!!


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a awesome week. Have a amazing weekend ahead for today's post I want to share with you all a very cheap bronzer that I picked up in the last few weeks and have tried it out and have a few thoughts on it. I thought I would come on here and share with you all my thoughts on it. Without further more let's just get into this. First thing I want to say this is a very inexpensive makeup line so going into this I didn't have very high expectations for this product. This bronzer cost $4.99 which is not a lot of money at all. 

First time using this matt bronzer I noticed, well there was a couple of things I noticed right away. First is that this is a powdery product but nothing that I can't deal with. Second is that this bronzer as a lot of product kick up, not sure if you can tell in the photo above but there is a little of the product kick up from when I used it that morning. You also have to keep in mind it's also a cheap item. The packaging to this item is fine I didn't really expect it to be fancy for five dollars it's just hard plastic. 

I was surprised to find that this bronzer was really matt when I applied it to my face. Sometimes I have found that when a bronzer claims that its matt sometimes you find out after applying it on to your face it's not really matt and there is glitter or shimmer in it. So thumbs up for that! I picked up the darker skin bronzer since the lite skin one looked like it would be to lite for my skin and it also looked like it wouldn't have much pigmentation to it. The darker skin one as pigmentation to it but nothing crazy where I was like wow. 

With that begin said I would say that this bronzer is a natural bronzer but yet it still gives you that sun kissed color to your face without making your face look orange or like you have a fake tan on. This is a very buildable product which is always nice to find, and this bronzer blends out super easy which is very nice. The pan size is very big as I am sure you can tell by the photo above. I do appreciate that for such a great price. A little goes a long way with this bronzer. 

The only downfall I really found with this item is that it as a very strong perfume scent to it. I am not a big fan of powders having scents to them. After using this a couple of times the scent as not bother me as much as it use to in the beginning. So just keep that in mind when you go and purchase this. Overall I don't regret purchasing this bronzer love that you get so much product for so little money. Just a good bronzer if you want to try something on the more inexpensive side. 

That's all for this Essence sun club MATT bronzing powder cosmetic hot or not. My conclusion is that this is a hot product and wroth giving it a try. In a comment below let me know if you guys have tried out this item and what your thoughts on it. Also let me know if there is other Essence products I should be giving a try, I love trying out new products and telling you guys my thoughts on them. As always talk to you all soon.

HIGH END | DRUGSTORE BEAUTY HAUL!


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 with you all a pretty random and collective haul that I have rathered up this past week. So without further more let's just jump right into this. First thing I picked up is something so basic just a hair brush nothing to exciting there, my hair brush is starting to look a little to rochi so I thought it's time for a new one. Next item is something I have heard a lot of youtubers and beauty bloggers raving about and how much they love this product. That is the Loreal Paris 24 Hour Infallible Foundation. I have tried out this product since buying it, but I am not going to say what I think of it on this post since I am planning on doing a whole review post talk about if I liked it or not. 

Third item that I picked up in this haul is the Mac 239 eye shadow brush. So far have been really enjoying having this brush in my collection, this is a great brush to really pack on the shadow onto your lids. Next I picked up a roller ball of the Daisy Marc Jacobs Perfume. This perfume smells amazing it's not to overwhelming and the scent last all day on my skin. Third to last item that I picked up at the drugstore is just one hundred counts of cotton pads. 

Second to last item is the Essence Lash Princess Mascara. I have been enjoying using essence products and thought I could use a new mascara. So I thought let me try out there mascaras, I hope this can live up to other essence products that I used in the past. Last item is a other essence product that is the Essence sun matt bronzing powder. I have tried out this item since buying it and so far have been really enjoying the product and the results it as given me.

That's all for this haul post for high end and drugstore items. Hope you all enjoyed this reading about what I bought and maybe something a item that you might want to go out and try out for you selfs.
