EMPTIES February|March... One Item That I Am On The Fence

Hey everyone welcome back to my blog. Today I am going to be doing a empties, yeah I know what you are saying to yourself again? If you really think about it I haven't done a empties post in a while. Anyways lets get into the products. 
Here is a picture of all the products that I have used up in the last two months. First product that I have used up is the 

Neutrogena deep clean oil-free makeup remover cleansing wipes. These wipes were good they took off all my makeup at the end of the day. The scent to these wipes is very pleasant and soft.The only two things I didn't like about them is that once I was getting closer to the end I found them to be drying out, which is a big no since it makes taking off your makeup a lot harder. The last thing I didn't like about these wipes is that when it came down to taking off my mascara I felt like I really had to rub at my eyes to get the mascara off.

Neutrogena make-up remover cleansing towlettes If you read any of my empties post that I have done in the past here on my blog then you know these are my hands down favorite  makeup wipes to use. They are super soft and wet. These wipes will take off the most stubborn makeup and mascara with one wipe and no rubbing needed. These are just amazing wipes and they smell great! These packets that I am showing you are traveled sized ones so they only come with 7 pre moistened towelettes in each packet instead of 25. 

Gold Bond Ultmate Eczema Relief Hand Lotion Very good hand cream. I kept this hand cream right next to my bed side table and used it every night before going to bed and thru out the day.I found my hands soft and not so itchy after using it. This item is a bit on the heavy side of creams just to put that out there. Overall great hand cream and something that I want to buy again. 

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner As most of you already could tell from the photo this item is a traveled sized item not a full product. Not that I need to explain to you guys why I bought the traveled one but I couldn't find the full sized one so that's why. I don't really have much to say about this leave in conditioner since not sure how I feel about it. Don't get me wrong it was a good product and smelled really good, like citrus. Just don't know if it really did anything for my hair. So with that beaning said I think I am on the fence with this product.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Perfume This is my very first perfume that I have used up the whole bottle of, a little proud of myself I have to say. This was a nice perfume smelled good but after going thru like half the bottle I felt like it smelled more like lemons which is great if you are into that scent but for me not so much. I still have to say the Amazing Grace by Philosophy is still my favorite and something I will not get tried of. This perfume did that.

Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner (211 Stable)  Amazing eyeliner went on the eyes so smooth and easy. Stays on all day with out smudging or moving The pigmentation to this eyeliner is amazing. Overall great item was a little sad to see it go I have to say. Ps this eyeliner is one of those that you roll up to get more product out of. No need to sharping.

That's all for my empties these last two months. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found something new you might want to give a try. Be sure you are following me here on my blog to know when I post new stuff. And I will talk to you guys soon.

Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray All Nighter Long- Lasting (REVIEW)

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog. Today I want to talk about and give you my thoughts on a new hot item in the beauty world. That is makeup setting sprays. The setting spray that I am going to be talking about today is the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray Long-Lasting. Without further a due lets get into this review. 
This is what the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray looks like if anyone as not seen the bottle before. This is a traveled sized one and not the full sized bottle just want to put that out there. This setting spray is a weightless setting spray that holds your makeup to your face all day long. And I do find that it does do that so this review is already to a great start. 

The Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray is fast absorbing when you spray it to the face, also not sticky to the touch which is nice because you don't want your hands to stick to your face when touching it. Also very potable I find that I can easily throw this in my purse or in a over night bag and it won't take up a lot of room.

I have to be honest I have never used a setting spray before. I have always have been a powder girl when it comes down to setting my makeup. That all changed when I watched YouTube videos from MakeupByTiffanyD ravening about this product and how much she loves it. And also reading other people"s reviews on the sephora website.

That's when I knew I was missing out on something great and had to get some of this goodness. Were they right! This setting spray is amazing it makes my makeup last all day long without it making it look cakey. A other great thing about this item is that it goes on so lite to the face that you don't even feel it. Which to me is awesome I don't like when sprays are heavy to the face. Not sure if this statement will make any sense but I want to include it in this post I haven't touched my setting powder since buying this setting spray.

This product smells good which is a thing since I am applying it to my face. Now this next statement I am about to say can be good or bad it depends on how you look at it. I do find this setting spray gives me a dewy finish to my foundation but not all of my foundations if that makes any sense at all.

Now on to the downfalls of this product. The only downfall I noticed when using this setting spray is that when I do spray this setting spray on to my face after all my makeup is done even mascara is done. I have find that it makes my mascara run down my face. Does anyone elas have that problem? Let me know in a comment below.

The last few things I want to mention about this item is that it's oil free, paraben free and sulfates free for those of you who want to know. I also want to mention that a full sized bottle of this setting spray is ($30.00) which I know is a lot of money since drug stores are now making there own setting sprays, but trust me if you haven't even tired this item before please give it a chance you don't be let down.

That's all for this review hope you guys enjoyed it and found it helpful in some way. As always be sure to be following me here on my blog to know when I post when stuff. And I will talk to you guys soon.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter Pressed Powder Highlight (REVIEW)

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog, thanks for stopping by. Today I want to talk to you guys about a product that as become very popular in the beauty community the last few months now. I am talking about highlights,the highlight that I am going to be giving you my thoughts on is the Becca Shimming Skin Perfecter Pressed Powder Highlight. Enough of me teasing you about the item and lets get into this review. 
I have to be honest I have never really got into highlighting before. Not sure what changed my mind about it but these last few months I have been loving highlighting my face. Anyways This is a creamy powder highlight that absorbs and reflects light, for a beautiful glow. This product as no parabens for those of you who might be wondering.

The consistency and feeling to this item is amazing and blends beautifully into the skin. This is a very frosty highlight but very creamy to the touch. This highlight last on my skin all day. This is my very first and only highlight that I have tried so far, but I love this one so much not sure if I want to try any other ones.

This highlight is on the pricey side about ($38.00) but completely worth the money. Its just a amazing highlight that gives your face that beautiful glow that we all want.
Here is a swatch of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter Pressed Powder Highlight. As you can tell from the photo above this is a beautiful golden opal color with a pearl finish to it. Yes this is a build-able highlight. One the other hand a little bit goes a long way with this highlight which is a great for the money you are paying since it will last you much longer.

I have to admit one thing tho this was a definitely a impulse purchase for me since like I said in the beginning of this post I was never into highlighting my face before until this item came into my life. The last thing I want to say about the Becca Shimmering Skin Pressed Powder Highlight is if you are looking for more of a natural highlight this is not the product for you just because as a frosty finish to it not sure how natural that will look. Overall great highlight and I think everyone should give this item a try if you haven't already.

That's all for this review. Hope you guys enjoyed today's post. Sorry if this post is kinda all over the place. Anyways let me know in a comment below if you have tried this highlight before and what were your thoughts on it? Or if you are thinking about trying it and trying it  out for your self? As always make sure you are following me here on my blog to know when I post new stuff talk to guys soon.

February Favorites, Boots, Makeup + More!

Hey everyone thanks for always taking a few minutes out of your day to come by and read my blog it means a lot to me. Today's post is going to be my February favorites, I know I am a little late on the favorites since its already the start of March, but I have been really enjoying all of the stuff that I am going to show you. So I hope that makes it up for beaning late :). By the way cant believe how fast the months are going by this year. Anyways let's just get on to the favorites. 
These are all of the items that I have been enjoying this past month. I am going to start off with the boots then move on to the smaller items on the left side of the picture above.

Brown Boots: These boots have been in so many Instagram photos that I cant even count (lol) and here on my blog. These boots are not the most comfortable boots in the world but they look super cute with skinny jeans or jeggings. Plus they make me look a little more taller. 

Black Over The Knee Boots: These boots have also been in lots of Instagram photos that its unreal and also here on my blog. By the way if you are not following me on Instagram what are you doing? You are missing out on some really good photos that I post there and not really on my blog. Instagram: Shopaholic8450 These boots are super comfortable since they are flat and have no heel to them. They go with every outfit I pair them with. Love these boots! I bought these boots at Famous Footwear at the beginning of the winter season, so I am not sure if they would have the same pair anymore :\

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Stripes: I bought these pore stripes a couple of months ago they where in a haul post if you want to check out that haul. Since then I have been really enjoy using them. I don't know if its the charcoal or what but these stripes really do get your pores clean. The cool thing or gross thing it depends on how you see it about these pore stripes since they are made out of charcoal and are black you can see what was laying inside of pores after you take the stripe off of your nose. That might sounds gross but I think its really interesting to see what was inside of your pores. They come with six in a box. I have only three and I am really trying to make them last since I don't want to run out of them. 

im PRESS Press - ON MANICURE:  If you have been following my Instagram lately then you know I have been obsessed with these press on nails. This is my second pack of these nails that I have used I just loved them that much. That I keep re buying them again.They are great for when you want your nails to look done but don't want to take the time to do them or go out and spend the money to get them done. They are super easy to put on and take them off all you have to do is find the right nail for that finger and then peel off the backing of the fake nail and just press firmly on the nail to make sure the fake nail stays on. To take them off all you have to do is soak them in warm water and they should come right off. That's all super easy and quick! 

On the box it said that these press on nails should last for a whole week. I can't say if they do or not stay on for a week because I only wear them for three days. If you have tried these nails for yourself and they have stayed on for a week please feel free to comment below in the comment section of this post and let everyone know. One packet of nails comes with two set of manicures so if you wanted to wear the same manicure again after that week you can because they give you two sets of the same manicure.

Urban Decay All Night Setting Spray: I have never tried any setting spray's before I was always using some kind of powder to set everything. Once I watched MakeupbyTiffanyD videos talking about how much she loves this. I knew I was missing out on something. Man was she right I love this! It sets my makeup so beautifully without messing it up and makes my makeup last on all day! I swear I haven't been using my powder to set my makeup anymore, I only use this now. This is a traveled sized one since it was my first time trying a setting spray I didn't want to spend the money on a full sized one just in case I didn't like it. I will be hands down be getting the full sized one once I am finished with this one. Loves it!!!!

Becca Shimmering Skin Pefector Spotlights in (Opal): This came in a set with the powder which I will be talking about next. This is a amazing liquid highlighter it gives such a beautiful gold highlight to your cheek bone. It does have a bit of shimmer to it. But trust me its so beautiful that you don't even notice the shimmer. By the way this product smells like vanilla which is always a nice scent.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed: This highlight is the same product as the one above just in a powder set. Again as I said before this is a amazing highlight that it gives a such a beautiful gold shimmering highlight to you checks, its just a amazing item. If you haven't tried it yet please go to your local sephora and do so you don't know what you are missing out on.  

Kat Von D.Tattoo Liner in (Trooper): This is a great eye liner super easy to use. Goes on the eye without any trouble. Overall great eyeliner very happy with it.

Loreal Pairs True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation: I honestly don't know what more I can say about this foundation. I did a whole post just talking about this foundation so if you are interested in that please make sure you check that post out. This is amazing foundation it gives your skin this beautiful glow to your skin without looking oily. I am wearing this foundation today and I honestly cant stop looking at myself because my skin look amazing and healthy which is a weird thing to say about a makeup product. All I am going to say is that I am so happy I bought this and I love it and if you guys haven't tried this foundation yet you NEED to. 


That's all for my February favorites hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found something new that you might want to try for yourself. If you have tried any of these products already please let me know your thoughts on them in a comment below I would love to know if you thought the same. I know this post was long I just had a lot to say about every item hope that's ok. Anyways as always make sure you are following me on my blog to know when I post new stuff.
