December Favorites | Holy Grail Lip Scrub....

Hey you guys hope everyone is doing well. Today I want to share some of my favorites from this past month there are not a lot this month but the couple that I picked out I have been really enjoying using. First favorite of mine this past month is the Moroccan Oil Treatment, I am not going to give a full review on this post since I do have a whole review post talking about this product coming soon. What I can say is that I have noticed a difference in my hair since using this item, I have noticed that my hair grows a lot faster, my hair also looks like it as more of a healthy glow to it. The moroccan oil treatment is a heavy oil so a little goes a long way when applying it to the hair. This item also as a very pleasant scent to it. Overall great product I would totally would recommend this item to anyone who was thinking of try it. 

Second favorite of this past is also a other product that I have a review post coming very soon, so I don't want to say to much about it. That is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. I have to be honest when I first heard about this item I thought it was a joke. After  buying the travel sized one and using it for this past month, I see this item is no joke. I totally notice a difference in my skin when I do use this primer water and when I don't. This product blurs out pours makes my makeup go on a lot smoother. I also noticed that when I do use this item before applying my makeup you don't notice the texture of my skin as much when I don't apply this spray. Just a great primer looking to get the full sized bottle soon. 

Second to last favorite is something that as been around for a while now but I just never got into it until I watched Makeupbytiffenyd videos her ravening about how much she loves this item. So I thought I would give it try and see if i feel the same way. The product that I am talking about is the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush ( Peach Statin). This is such a beautiful blush, it gives you the right amount of color on your cheeks without over doing it. I would say this blush is on the more natural side of blushes. It as a little of a scent but nothing that you smell when applying the product. Last thing I want to say this blush applies amazing with a damped beauty blender. 

Last favorite that I want to talk about is the Chap Stick Total Hydration Lip Scrub. This as quickly become my holy grail lip scrub. This lip product scrubs away all of the dead skin you might have on your lips without leaving your lips feeling dry. I find that this lip scrub is so hydration that I don't feel the need to put on chap-stick on after, but I do anyway just for that extra hydration. I also found this lip scrub not to be like I am rubbing sand on my lips, since its not that harsh of a lip item I can use it more then just once a week. When you are done rubbing this product onto your lips and your ready to wash it off. I have noticed it turns into a oil that I just rub onto my lips. (Not sure if you are to do that but I do anyway). Overall great lip scrub so happy that I found this item. My cream matte lip sticks apply so much more smoother and easier since I have started using this item.

That's all of my favorites for this past month. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what have been your favorite products this past month. I would love to know what you guys have been enjoying using this past month. As always talk to you soon.

Beauty Blender Micro. Mini Pro Replaced My Original Beauty Blender??? (REVIEW)

If guys have been following my blog for long then you know I have a whole post about the Original Beauty Blender in its big sized and love it. I saw these Micro. Mimi Pro Beauty Blenders and thought these would be great for under my eyes and blush, so I bought them. They come with two in a box I think that is a great deal! Since these retail for ($18.00) . I have to be honest I thought these beauty blenders were silly but I have been really enjoying them and loving the idea of a tiny beauty blender. I use the mini beauty blenders for my cream blushes and of course my concealer, it works great for both blends the product flawless into my skin leaving my skin looking beautiful.

I am going be honest since this beauty blender is on the smaller size it did take me a while to get used to holding such a small sponge. Yes I have dropped this item a couple of times already since its so small. The Micro. Mini Pro Beauty Blender is small in size even when its expanded after I have damped it in water. I do like the fact that because this beauty blender is so small its super travel friendly not to say the original beauty blender isn't travel friendly. A other thing that I love about the Micro Mini Pro Beauty Blender is easy to clean product comes right off the sponge no need to work at it to get it clean, there is no dye that comes off this sponge when cleaning it, I found that to be the case with my original pink beauty blender. 

The one thing that I will say that I am not sure if I like about this beauty blender is that I found that it feels like this sponge as a more of a texture feel to it then the other beauty blenders. Its not a bad texture but it doesn't have a smooth flawless touch to it. I hope that makes sense to you guys. 

That's all for this review on the Micro. Mini Pro Beauty Blender. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful if you were thinking about getting this for yourself's or gifting it a friend this holiday season. Let me know in a comment below if you guys have tried this item out and what were your thoughts on it? Talk to you soon.

Highly Talked About Concealer Just Didn't Work For Me.... (REVIEW)

Hey you guys hope you are all are doing well. Today I want to give you my thoughts on a product that is highly talked about and raved about here in the beauty community. The product that I am going to talking about is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. Without further more let's get into this review.  

This was a very easy concealer to work with, it was very blend-able. This concealer also set under the eye beautifully. Other good things about the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is that its a non drying formula which is always a great thing, since I do have dry skin. Its also lightweight, smooth and very pigmented a little of this concealer will go a long way. The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer as good coverage it does brighten under my eye area but its not so good when it comes down to dark purple cilces under the eyes, its funny because I found that when it came to covering up any darkness under my eyes I felt like this concealer would sheer out ....Is that weird thing to say? Please let me know in a comment below if you guys have had that problem with this item?

Now for the cons of this concealer wish I didn't have any but sadly I do. The first con of this concealer is that this item creases a lot even when I do set it with a powder. I also saw by using this product that its not sweat proof at all it would just disappear after a couple of hours. The last con that I have for this concealer is that the staying power is not that great at all even when I set it I feel like it just goes away after a couple of hours of wearing it. The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer realities for ($29.00)  I just don't see this item worth that much money. I think there are better concealers out there that would do a better job on covering up dark areas under the eyes and also have way better staying power. I will not be repurchasing this item again.

That's all for this review on the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful if you were thinking about getting this item for your self. Sorry that this review wasn't a positive one, but not all makeup items will work out for everyone. Talk to you guys soon.

Disappointing Make Up Brush | Sephora Pro Domed Stippling Brush #41

Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well. Today I want to give you my thoughts on a makeup brush that I have been using for a couple of months now and I have a lot to say about it. The makeup brush that I am going to be telling you guys about is the Sephora Pro Domed Stippling Brush # 41. With out further more let's get into this review.

Let me start telling you the good thing about this makeup brush. When you apply bb cream with this brush it goes on the face flawless, but when I would start and try to blend the bb cream into my face it would make the bb cream ball up and wont let me do nothing because the more I would try to fix it the more the brush would make the bb cream ball up.  At the end of all that I found if I just use my fingers to blend it out that doesn't happen. This I only found happens on the tip of my nose. This is not a lite weight brush it does have some weight to it when holding it.

After just using this brush just once I noticed that product doesn't lay on the top of the brush. The brush soaks up a lot of your product so you end up using more foundation or bb cream then you would like to. Let's talk about what happens when I wash this brush. Taking any product off this brush is not easy, product doesn't just come right off you need to really work with it for all of the product to wash off the brush. I also found when washing or just using this makeup brush it sheds a lot which to me is not a good thing in a makeup brush.

The one thing about this brush that I love is that this brush is dense but yet it as some flexible to it. The hairs on the brush are super soft to the touch and on the face which is always nice. This brush is ($36.00) which to me is not the worth the amount of money. I just think there are a lot of other better brushes that I have used and have in my collection that I would pick over this one. 

That's all for this review post on the Sephora Pro Domed Stippling Brush #41. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Sorry if this was such a negative review post but its my honest thoughts. If you guys have this brush and love it please let me know your tips and tricks on how you use it and clean it, I would love to know. As always talk to you guys soon.

Real Techniques Blush Brush (REVIEW)

Hey everyone, Hope you guys are doing well. Today I want to share my thoughts on a makeup brush that I have had for a couple months already, I have a few things to say. This makeup brush was also in a recent drugstore haul if you are interested in seeing what else I got in that haul please feel free to go check that post out. Anyways let's get into this review. 

This is a lite weight makeup brush, Love how the bottom of this brush is flat it makes easier when I am done with the brush and I want to keep it standing up. This is also a super soft brush to the touch and on the face. This is not a dense brush as most of my brushes are. I do like the flexible this brush as. The Real Techniques Blush Brush picks up product great! It also applies product beautifully and even on the skin. What I love most about the Real Techniques Blush Brush is that it doesn't shed when washing or when using it.I found when I do clean this brush any product that I might had on it comes off so easy I don't have to really work with it to get it cleaned. Love that! 

This brush is ($8.99) which is a amazing price point for such a great brush. I would totally recommend this brush to anyone that as been wanna to try it out. Its such a high quality brush for what the price is.

That's all for this review on the Real Techniques Blush Brush. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Hopefully found it helpful if you were thinking of getting this brush. In a comment below let me know if you have this brush and what were your thoughts on it, is there something that I forgot to mention in this review post? As always talk to you guys soon.
