FIRST WEEK IMPRESSIONS | TARTE TARTEIST LIP PAINT (REVIEW)


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well and had a wonderful week and have a amazing weekend. Today' post I am going to sharing with you all my full week's impressions on the Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in (birthday suit). The one that I have and the one you see in the picture above is just a little sample sized or traveled sized whichever you want to call it, I got from sephora for my birthday for begin part of there beauty v.i.p. member program. This is a very creamy formula but dries down as a liquid lipstick. I also noticed when using this lip product that the color in the tube goes on darker on the lips not to dark but you do notice the difference. 

This lip paint isn't drying to the point where its uncomfortable but you can feel it on your lips. I found after wearing this for a couple of hours on my lips felt  dried out and needed some moisture. I would recommend that you put on some chap-stick on your lips first let it sit for a few minutes while we finish up doing your makeup, then blot the chap stick away before apply the Tarte lip paint. That's what I do and it helps a little but your lips still feel dry while wearing this. I also recommend that you exfoliate your lips since this product will cling on to very little dry patch that you have on your lips. 

This Tarte tarteist lip paint come in range of colors. Not sure if I told you what color I got as a sample but the one I got is called (birthday suit). This is a very pretty nude, I really have been enjoying this color on my lips. This lip paint is well pigmented.

Now lets chat about some downfalls that I have noticed with this product. First one is that this lip product is not transfer proof this will come off on your coffee mug. Second downfall I noticed when using this product that it doesn't last long on the lips, not very long lasting not all comes off in a few hours of wearing it, which I was really disappointed since I was so excited to try out this item. Last downfall I have is that when I took this lip paint off my lips at night. My lips felt so dry that I had to apply chap stick to them. Here is the weird thing I didn't experience that drying feeling on the second day of wearing this. The last thing I want to mention is that is a full sized of the Tarte tarteist lip paint cost $20.00. 


Overall thoughts did I like this product? I can say I did to a certain point but  for me personally I just saw way to many downfalls with this item that I just cant see myself using this again or ever repurchasing it again. That's all for this first impressions of the Tarte tarteist lip paint.  I would love to know in a comment below if you guys have tried out this product and liked it ? Let me know of any tips and tricks that you guys might have for this item? As always to you all soon.

TARGET GOODIES | CLOTHES, MAKEUP + MORE! (HAUL)


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well, have a fanatic weekend. Today's post I want to share you some stuff that I have picked up at Target lately. I have to say target as really setup it up with there clothing, I was shopping in the clothing section of the store and literally wanted it all. (lol) Anyways let's jump right into this haul.

First thing I picked up is this brunt orange t shirt. I am wearing this today and it super soft and comfortable I wish target had more colors in this shirt but this is the only color that they had. I love the cut out detail in this t shirt it gives the shirt a little bit more. My favorite part about this shirt is the cut out around the neck line, it makes it look like you are wearing a choker that is same as the shirt but in reality its part of the shirt. I hope that made any sense. 

Second item that I picked up is something that is one of my holy grail items that I am sure if you have been following my blog for a while now then you know what item I am talking about. That is the Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes. These are amazing wipes they remove makeup even waterproof mascara like dream. I am not going to go to much more talking about this product because I am sure you guys have heard me talk about these wipes and how amazing they are, plenty of times already. 

Third item that I picked up on this Target haul are these low rise skinny jeans. To be honest with you all in my years of shopping at Target I have never bought and tried out there jeans before, (I know hard to believe right?!). Until now I can't believe how comfortable they are and stretching they are. They are true to size so just keep that in mind if you are thinking of buying a pair. 

Next clothing item that I picked up is a grey graphic t shirt this is a other super comfortable and soft shirt. Second to last item that I picked up on this haul are the Clean and Clear oil absorbing sheets. I have tried out this brand a while back ago and remember that I really liked them so I picked up a other packet since I am running low on the oil absorbing sheets I have now.

The last item that I got is a other t shirt. This shirt as some cut outs here the shoulders so it gives a black t shirt some interest. This is a other super soft and comfortable shirt. 

That's all for this Target haul hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe found something that you might want to go pick up for yourself's. Let me know in a comment below if you guys want to see any of these clothing items in a outfit of day post. As always talk to you all soon.

BEAUTY TRASH | PRODUCTS THAT I HAVE USED UP!!!


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well and had a good week this week. Today's post I want to share with you all some of the products that I have used up and what are my final thoughts on them are. There are a lot of products to get thru so let's get started. First product that I have used up is the Softsoap fresh & glow exfoliating fruit polish. I really enjoyed this product. This smells really nice and fruity but not to strong. I see a real difference when I use this on my skin looks and feels more smooth, and I do see a glow to my skin. This exfoliating product the beads in it are not to rough so you could get away with using this everyday. I know I did. 

Next empty is something I am sure you guys have seen before in empties that is the Johnson's baby shampoo. I use this to wash my makeup brushes with. I find that this gets my makeup brushes clean and leaves a nice scent to them. Third empty is the Tresemme moisture rich conditioner. The scent to this conditioner is very pleasant, I think it as a fruit smell it to. I found this conditioner to be on the heavy side so a little goes a long way. I did notice after using this product that my hair felt more soft. One more thing is you get a lot of product for the price, I believe it was under ten dollars but don't quote me on that. Overall good product. 

Next product that I used up are the Olay fresh effects oil - reducing wet clothes. I saw that these wipes help control my oil on my face thru out the day. I found myself not to have to blot so much when I used these wipes in the morning. I do believe these help my oily face, will be re buying these again very soon. By the way the scent to these wipes is very orange smelling like. Next empty is the Beauty Blender micro mini pro in (black), I mainly used this beauty blender to apply cream blush. Even tho its a tiny beauty blender it blends out product  great.The only thing I saw that I was not a big fan about with the micro mini pro beauty blenders is that it feels like the sponge as some texture to it, like its a smooth sponge. Let me know in a comment below if you guys get that with this item?

Sixth empty is a travel size of the goof proof brow pencil by Benfit. I really enjoyed this product it was super easy to work with. The pencil it self went on the brows super easy and stayed on all day. The only downfall since this was not the full sized one it didn't come with a spooly. Next empty is the Eucerin advanced repair hand cream. This was a alright hand cream I didn't feel like it did much for my dry hands, I can say it as a nice thick creamy consistency to it which I did enjoy about this hand lotion.

Third to last empty is the Neutrogena oil - free eye makeup remover. This eye makeup remover is amazing it removes mascara and even water prof mascara like dream. This product is on my list to re buy. If you guys have not tried out this eye makeup remover you need to. Next product that I have used up lately is the Aussie total miracle dry shampoo. This dry shampoo is a very strong dry shampoo so if your hair doesn't get a lot of oil from not washing it I would not use this. I found this dry shampoo to get my hair looking clean but it did have some build up to it since it is a strong dry shampoo. I like using this dry shampoo after a workout because my hair gets very sweaty and oily this does miracles on it. 

Last empty is the Batiste dry shampoo. This dry shampoo is on the more lite side in the sense it still gets you hair clean but your hair still feels like hair when you run your hands thru it. This scent isn't my favorite but since I liked the dry shampoo so much I learned it live with it. I have bought a other can of this but in a different scent. 

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

COVERGIRL TOTAL TEASE MASCARA | FIRST IMPRESSIONS (FAIL?!?!)



Hey everyone hope you are doing well. Today's post I am going to be talking about a mascara that I have been using for the last few months. I have few thoughts on it and thought why not share with you guys. Let's just start talking about the most obvious thing you notice right away about this mascara is the wand it as spiky bristles to it which I find that since it as those spiky bristles I find that it helps comb out my lashes and some of the clumps that I do get with this mascara if I don't take my time when using this product.  

If you look closely you notice that one side of this wand as no bristles to it expect at the top of the wand. I still don't understand why cover girl did that, I find it that it makes it a little more difficult to apply this mascara to the lashes since I only have one side of the wand I can fully work with. (hope that makes sense). Also since the wand is the way it is it makes a little hard to work with because I am scared the side of the wand that as only bristles on the top of the wand is going to touch my face and get mascara all over under my eyes. Update: that as not been the case, but I can see where that could happen if you are not careful when applying this. 

Love the cap of this product it as some texture to it so I find it makes it easier to open it. This is a wet mascara, so with that begin said this mascara will transfer on the lids if you are not careful on how you apply it. Some positives about this product is that this mascara does make my lashes look full it also some a good job on separating them. When it came down to lengthening and volume it didn't much in that department. Two other things positive thing about this mascara is it does very well in the summer heat, I found that it didn't run under my eyes. The last one is that this product it does not flake or smudge off thru out the day. Which is always a great thing to have in a mascara.

The thing I did find little annoying about this product is that this mascara doesn't come off so easily with just a makeup wipe you need eye makeup remover to get this mascara off. This mascara retails for $10.49. I did get a complement on my lashes one day when I was wearing this mascara. 

Overall thoughts I think this is a good mascara is this one of my favorites? No its not. I just think there is other mascaras that are better. As always talk to you all soon.

FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER!! | MURAD TIME RELEASE ACNE CLEANSER (ANTI-AGING ACNE)


Hey everyone, hope you are doing well and had a wonderful week this week and have a great weekend. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on a cleanser that I have been using for a couple of months now and really have fell in love with and thought why not share this amazing find with you all. This Murad Cleanser is a gel creamy no drying cleanser. This cleanser as a like clean minty scent to it, its not a over powering scent at least to me its not, but if you are sensitive to scents this might not be the cleanser for you. I found this to be a very gentle cleanser on the face doesn't really foam up.

My skin feels hydrated, refreshed and not over dried after using this cleanser. I have noticed since using this face wash my acne as stayed at bea, I don't  break out as much as I use to when I didn't have this to use. I have been using this cleanser for a couple of months now and I can totally see a difference in my face, like I said before I don't really break out anymore my skin feels and looks more hydrated. The Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser cost ($34.00) which I know sounds like a lot of money for a face wash but I think its so worth the money. I would recommend this for anyone who is dealing with acne.

That's all for this review on the Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser. Hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful in some way. Let in a comment below let me know if you have tried out this product before and what were your thoughts on it. As always talk to you soon.

CAN'T GET MORE OF A SUMMER OUTFIT THEN THIS! (OUTFIT OF THE DAY)




Hey everyone! Hope you are all doing good and have a amazing weekend. Today's post I want to share with all a outfit that I wore a week ago. The dress is from Old Navy and the sandles are from Target. This dress is super comfortable and lite weight. Love how airy it is, and the not so deep v neck it as on the front it gives this dress some fun detail to it. The back of this dress also as that not so deep v neck to it also. The dress hits right above the knees so I can say this would be a dress you could wear to the office. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this outfit of the day post. Let me know in a comment below what are your thoughts on this dress. As always talk to you all soon.

NATURAL PERFECT FOR EVERYDAY MASCARA | BUXOM LASH MASCARA (REVIEW)


 Hey everyone, hope you are doing well and had a good week. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on a mascara that I have been using lately and have written down a few things that I want share and maybe you will find it helpful. First thing is this is a dry mascara, the wand to this mascara is a long fat rubber wand. The wand is very flexible and the bristles on the wand are short. I love that this mascara doesn't flake off or smudge under the eyes thru out the day. Four last good things that I really like about this product before I get to the downfalls of this item. 

This mascara does a great job on separating and lengthening my lashes, but when it comes down to volume I just don't see it with this product. The other two good things about this item is first there is no clumping when applying this to your lashes which is always a nice thing to see. The last good thing about this mascara is that when you are ready to take this off of your lashes it comes off fairly easy, I just use a makeup wipe remover and the product came right off. 

Not sure if this is a downfall or not but I find it a little annoying. I find that you have to work with this product a little bit to get your lashes to the way you want them to look. Which to me can be a little annoying when you are in a rush and just want a mascara that will go on and give you everything you want without working with the product to get it there. A real downfall I have with this item is that I find since the wand is so big and fat it transfers on the lid pretty quickly if you are not careful.  

Quick helpful tip when setting your face with setting spray I would say wait for the mascara to dry first before spraying your face, I learned that the hard way I didn't wait for this product to dry and I sprayed my face and the mascara ran down my face. This mascara is ($20.00) which is not a bad price point for begin a high end mascara.

Overall thoughts I think this is a good product but I am not in love with it but I also don't hate it, I wouldn't re buy this again. I do think if you are looking for a mascara that is a little more on the natural looking side and something for everyday then this is the mascara that you want. But if you are someone like me and like big volumzies  lashes then I would stay away from this item. 

That's all for this review on the Buxom Lash Mascara. Hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful in some way. In a comment below let me know if you guys have tried out this product and what were your thoughts on it. As always talk to you all soon.
