I picked up some new products and a re bought of a hair product that I love that I am excited to chat with you guys about. Without further more lets just jump right into this sephora birthday haul.

First beauty item that I got on this haul is a new mascara I ran out of my other mascara that I have been using so I thought it would be the perfect time get a new one. I picked up the Buxom Lash Mascara I have never tried out this one before I have seen it in store but ever thought of getting it. I have been using it since buying the product and so far have been really enjoy it. I will let you guys know more of my thoughts on this item in a full review post. 

Second beauty item that I picked up on this haul is a product that I have used and have raved about how much I love it here on my blog. That is the Moroccanoil Treatment this stuff is truly amazing I have noticed such a difference in my hair since using this. Here are some major things I have noticed this using this hair item 1. my hair grows a lot faster 2. my hair dries quicker after washing it. 3. my hair feels so much smother and silky when I use this oil. If you want to know more of my thoughts on this oil feel free to check out my full review post I did here on my blog. Overall amazing hair oil I would 100% recommend this hair oil to anyone who as not tried it out for them self.

Next beauty product I picked up on this haul is a new moisturizer that I have never tired before but only heard really amazing things about the brand and there products. That is the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion. I tried out the sample test one in store and fell in love on how it left my hand so soft and moisturized without any oily feel to my hand after.   

Second to last item that I picked up on this haul is a sample sized that I got by using my V.I.P. points, the beauty product that I picked out from the choices they had is the Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter.

HOT NEW BEAUTY (not so new anymore) TOOL!!! LOREAL BLEND ARTIST INFALLIBLE | REVIEW




Hey everyone hope you are doing well. Today post I am going to be sharing my thoughts on a beauty tool that I am sure you have heard other people rave about it. I am talking about the Loreal Blend Artist Infallible Sponge. This is a soft and squishy sponge to the touch not dense or hard at all, don't get me wrong it as some density to it but then again its not hard as a rock. One thing that I found very interesting is that on the box that this tool came in it doesn't say anything about damping this sponge before using it. I just find that surprising since I feel like a dry beauty sponge will just drag around your foundation and not really blend the product well onto the skin for a flawless finish. I did damp this sponge anyway even tho it didn't say on the packaging, I found that this beauty sponge grew a little bigger but not by much you cant really tell. 

This beauty sponge is super easy to hold since it as that hourglass shape to it. Applies foundation and concealer on the face flawless doesn't thin out the coverage of the foundation you are using at all. Super easy to work with I got a full coverage every time I used this sponge. I love that this sponge doesn't hold on to water after squeeze it after you have damping it. I also love that that this beauty tool didn't soak up lot of my foundation, that is always nice to see when it comes down to any beauty tool even brushes. 

The only downfall that I had with this tool is when it came down to cleaning this sponge product didn't come off as easily as my beauty blender. I found that it took me as few rounds with soap and water to get it clean and to make sure all of the product was off the sponge. On the plus side this sponge did not transfer any kind of pink color while I was washing the beauty tool, on a other plus side I like that on the package it gives you tips on ways to utilize the whole sponge and the package also provides you with directions in case you are new to beauty sponges. I think that is super useful and very helpful for beginners, major bonus points to loreal for that.

I wish I had tried out other drugstore beauty sponges before posting this but I didn't so I don't really have anything to compare this to to see which one I would like better. This beauty tool cost $ 7.99 which is not bad at all for such a great beauty sponge. I would totally recommend this tool to anyone who as not given this a try yet.

That's all for this review of the Loreal Blend Artist Infallible Sponge. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below if you guys have tried out this tool and what were thoughts on it, I love reading your guys feedback on products. As always talk to you soon.

FAVORITE NEW MASCARA ?!?!? | MAYBELLINE THE COLOSSAL BIG SHOT


Hey everyone hope you are doing well and had a great week. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on a mascara that I have been using for a couple weeks now and have written down a few things about it that I would like to share with you guys and get your feedback also on what were your thoughts on this product were or if you have tried out this maraca already. First thing I want to say this mascara cost ($8.49) which is not a bad deal not all, I got this item at CVS if anyone of you guys were wondering. Let's start off this review on a positive note, I found that this mascara applies to the lashes pretty easy doesn't clump up much when applying but you definitely have to take your time applying this and work with it a little to get what you want from this mascara.

With that beginning said I also think that this mascara is not the best when it comes to building it up, I just found that after just applying one coat of this product to my lashes they look fine but its when you start trying to add a second coat is when I noticed that this mascara started getting clumpy and looking spidery.  A tip that I have learned from using this product is that if you do want a second coat of this mascara you have to apply it when its still wet on your lashes, if you wait until the first coat dries you are going to find that your lashes look spidery and very clump together. 

On the plus side this mascara gave my lashes lot and I mean a lot of length to my lashes, which is a awesome thing to find in a product since I have more short stick out straight lashes it also gave me some good amount of volume to them but not as much as it did with length, this item did a good job separating my lashes that's if I took my time with this product. This mascara gave my lashes a very pretty wispy look to them. Let's talk about the brush on this mascara for a second. This a very full brush with medium sized brittle's to it, I thought the brush was good not to big or to small. I found this mascara is on the more wet side but I have found that this product does start to dry out a bit once using it for a couple of days. It did transfer product onto the lids when applying it since it is so wet when first using this  mascara, to me that is just a little annoying.   

I love that this mascara doesn't flake or smudge off thru out the day, I have worn this mascara in really hot weather and it still stayed on with out flaky or smudge off. I also love that the volume and length you get when you first apply this doesn't fall out thru out the day. The only real big down fall I have with this product is that when it comes time to take off this mascara its not so easy maybe it as to do with the fact this mascara is waterproof. All I know I have the hardest time trying to get this mascara off my lashes, I have found that a regular makeup wipe remover doesn't do anything won't even take a little bit off. You need to have a eye makeup remover that you know will take off waterproof mascara but even with that I still found my self rubbing at eyes to get this item off. If you guys have any products that you swear by that takes off waterproof mascara really easy let me know in a comment below.

Overall thoughts on this product its a good mascara love the way my lashes look after and that this mascara wont smudge or flake off thru out the day. Then again I was not happy that you really had to work with this item to not get clumps and the spidery lashes and the amount of product that transfer onto your lids while apply this mascara. With that all begin said I am on the fence about this product not sure if I would repurchases this again. Is this my favorite mascara? I have to say no its not.

That's all for this review on the maybelline the colossal big shot mascara. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful in some way. In a comment below let me know if you have tried out this mascara before and what were your thoughts on it did you like it? I love hearing your guys feedback on beauty items. As always talk to you guys soon.

SEPHORA HAUL | SPRING 2017




Hey everyone hope you are all doing well. Today I want to share with you guys a Sephora haul that I picked up this past weekend. First product I picked up is something that I repurchased before and I have really enjoyed that is the Clinique take the day off micellar cleansing towelettes. These are really good makeup wipes they take off all of my makeup with just one wipe, they are wet but they are also on the little bit on the dryer side if that makes any sense. I also love that they come with 50 wipes for under twenty dollars! Next product I got for free for being  a V.IP. member. The product is the Origins Retexturizing Mask I have already tried out this mask since buying it. I am going to be doing a whole review post and telling you my thoughts on this item so I am not going to say much now. I can say that this mask really is amazing I see a difference in my skin after using this face mask. I also have notice that my makeup applies so much more flawless and smother after using this product. Love that this mask as a very settle scent of roses.

Third product that I picked up at sephora is something that was a total surprise since I don't remember having this in my basket while I was in the store. That is the Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask. I haven't tried this sample sized mask yet. If you guys want to see a real time first impressions on this item let me know a comment before. Next item is something that I feel very girl buys a few months that is the Duo Brush On Adhesive Eye Lash Glue, I have tried this brush on before and I really enjoyed it. I found the application for the glue was a lot easier and faster then the squeeze tube one. I got the clear one if anyone was wondering. 

Next item is something I go thru alot during the spring and summer months. That would be bottling sheets I still have not found ones that I really love so I have been trying all different kind of brands to see if I will really love just one. Anyways the blotting sheets I got this time around are the Sephora Blotting Papers in herbal rose, so far I have been enjoying this papers they get all of the oil off my face, but I have notice at times they do take off a little bit of my makeup which stinks. A other great thing about these blotting papers is that they have a fresh pleasant rose scent that is not to over powering or gross.

Third to last item that I picked up on this haul is something that I have been wanna to try but never actually bought it, so I was super happy when I found that I could use my V.I.P. points toward this I guess traveled sized item. I am talking about the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder, I am super excited to start using this product since I only heard and read amazing things about this face powder. Next item I picked up is a travel sized of the Goof Proof Brow Pencil from Benfit. I have used this item already since buying it. So far I have been really enjoying this pencil super easy to work with and goes on the brows flawless. I am 100 % sure I will be repurchasing the full sized pencil soon. 

Finally the last thing I picked up is not a product but a makeup brush. I went in blind when purchasing the Sephora Pro Brow Brush, I say that because when I bought this brush I didn't watch or read any reviews on this item. Form the looks of the brush it looks like its going to be a good brush. Here me hoping! If you guys have any ideas on how I would store this double ended makeup brush please let me know in a comment below, it would be much appreciated. 

That's all for this Sephora haul hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found something new that you might want to go and get and try it for your self's. In a comment below let me know what have you bought lately at sephora, I would love to know since I am always up to trying new products. As always talk to you guys soon.

FLOWER TRANSLUCENT FINISHING POWDER (HIT OR MISS FOR ME YOU DECIDE???)


Hey everyone how is everyone doing? Hope you are all doing well. This might be a very short blog post this week since the product that I am going to be sharing my thoughts on I just don't know how I feel about it, even tho I have had it for a couple of months now and used it quite a bit of it already. I do have a few thoughts that I would like to share with you guys.

You can find this Flower Beauty Line exclusively at Walmart. I have heard rumors that they are discounting this beauty line if anyone of you guys know if that is true or not please leave it in a comment below. First thing I want to say about this translucent finishing powder is that even tho the packaging looks pretty and clean its a very bulky container just to hold some powder in it. Its also very hard to store and put away once you are done with it since its so big. This is a matte translucent finishing powder which is a really nice since I do get very oily during the spring and summer months, so its nice to have a finishing powder that will make my face matte. This is not a intense matte powder at all goes on the face flawless while keeping my face matte all day.

I also found while I have been using this powder that it is a finely milled powder. This powder helps minimizes imperfections which is a amazing thing to find any product, also love that this brand never test there products on animals. The big down fall that I have with this item and its probably why I don't like it as much even tho it does what it claims in keeping  your face matte all day without drying it out is that when you go to open the container the product files everywhere there for it makes it just a little bit hard to work with. I also found it to be the same case when you are going to put the top back on powder just comes flying out everywhere. If the brand of this product would work on the packaging a little bit more I think I would really love this powder. Last thing I want to mention is that this item cost ($ 9.98) which is not a bad price tag at all for this item since you do get a quite bit of product. Overall thoughts its a good powder if you don't mind the bulky packaging and the mess it makes when opening and closing the lid.


That's all for this quick review on the Flower Beauty Translucent Finishing Powder. In a comment below let me know if you guys have tried out this product out and what were your thoughts on it. Also let me know if you thought this was a hit or miss item for me. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you guys soon.

($5.99) FOUNDATION!!! THAT PERFORMS LIKE A HIGH END FOUNDATION | WET N WILD PHOTO FOCUS FOUNDATION



Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well. Today I want to share my thoughts on a foundation that I have been using these last few months now and I have fallen in love with it. The foundation that I am talking about is the Wet n Wild Photofoucs Foundation. This foundation comes in a wide different shades so anyone can find there perfect match for them. I found that the Wet n Wild foundation is not to thin or to thick of a product it applies to the face falwess with either a damping beauty blender or a flat top brush. The coverage to this foundation is great it covers a lot of my redness that I have on my face. The one downfall tho is that after wearing it for a few hours I noticed that this product starts to break up on me around my cheek area its not a big fade out but you can see where it as broken up. With that been said I don't think I would call this foundation a long lasting product.

A other thing I noticed when I was applying this product is that this foundation as a weird scent to it. I cant really describe the scent  you will just have to buy yourselves a bottle and smell it for your self's. This foundation does come with a applicator not sure how I feel about about it. I feel like its not that sanitary to be putting a plastic applicator that as touched your face back into in the bottle, I think its like putting germs and bacteria in the foundation bottle. I found that this foundation was matte for the most part I didn't really find that I had to be blotting my face a lot when using this product. 

Last few things I want to say about the Wet n Wild photo focus foundation is that when it came down to setting this foundation I found it to set better with a powder vs a setting spray. I just feel like when setting this foundation with setting spray it made the product look cakey and more dewy like then I like my foundations to be. Wet n Wild is a cruelty free makeup which is a awesome thing! This foundation as the title said cost $5.99 which a amazing deal since this foundation is a great foundation that works amazing. Overall I really like this product and say that if anyone as not tried out this foundation yet you need to do so.

That's it for this review on the Wet n Wild Photofoucs Foundation. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me known in a comment below if you have tried this foundation and what were your thoughts on it. I love to hear your guys feedback. As always talk to you guys soon.

PRODUCTS THAT I HAVE USED UP | EMPTIES!!! | BEST EMPTIES YET...



Hey you guys, hope you are all doing well and had a wonderful week. For today's post I am going to be sharing with you and talking to you about products that I have used up in these  last few months. First empty is the Clinique take the day off micellar cleansing towelettes. I already have done a full review post sharing my thoughts on these makeup wipes, If you would like to know more of my thoughts on these wipes please feel free to check out that post. These makeup wipes were really easy to work with they took off all of my makeup and mascara with just one wipe. They smell very nice and pleasant, love that the packaging to these makeup wipes is purple since purple is my favorite color, a other thing that I really enjoyed about this product is the price you get 50 towelettes for under twenty dollars which I think is a great deal for a high end makeup brand. The only downfall I had with these wipes is that they dried up really quick just sitting in the package. Overall great wipes and will be repurchasing  these soon again.

Next empty is the Clean & Clear essentials deep cleaning astringent toner. This toner is a really strong toner so if you don't have lot of problematic ance then you might not want to use this toner. I found this toner to really help me in clearing my skin it reduce the redness and size of my ance. The one thing that I really hated about this toner is that it dried up my skin. Not sure if I would re buy this again.

Third empty is a other beauty item that I have talked about here on my blog and raved about that is the Too Faced Better Then Sex Mascara. This is my first full sized of this mascara but I have gone thru two sample sized or travel sized which ever you want to call them. This was a amazing mascara one that I keep going to. This mascara gives me that volume that I look in very mascara that I buy. This also gave me a little bit length but a lot more volume. The only thing that I found when using this full sized one is that it had more fall out then the traveled sizes one, which is a little disappointing, but I still love this mascara I will just get the travel sized one instead of the full sized since the smaller ones don't flake off.

Next empty is the ELF Brow Pencil. This eye pencil was fine. I don't think I will be buying this again, just because its a very waxy and dry formula and I had a very hard time trying to get this product to come off on my brow's the first time I used it. After the first time it worked good. I just think its not worth the money if you have to break a film before you can get to the product. I do love that even tho it was so cheap it came with a spooling.

Fifth empty is the Origins Plantscription Anti- aging power eye cream. I have been wanna to do a whole blog post just talking about this product but haven't gotten around to getting the full sized bottle. This was a great eye cream not to heavy or to lite under the eye area. I noticed after using this eye cream for a while, I noticed under my eyes were brighten and didn't get so dry.  This little sample of this eye cream lasted me so long, a little goes a long way. Overall great eye cream.

Next empty is the Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens. These blotting sheets did what they are meant for. They soaked up all of the oil from my face without removing any makeup. They come with 100 sheets which lasted me for a really long time since my face doesn't get oily that much only in the spring and summer time. 

Third to last empty is the Kat Von D. tattoo liner. This is a felt tip liner, goes on super easy and very pigmented. I found this to be super easy to work with, doesn't dry out that easily. Overall great liner really enjoyed it and will be getting a another one very soon.

Second to last empty is a sample of the IGK hair blam in (mistress). Really enjoyed this sample. The sample of this hair balm smelled really pleasant. This was a very light weight hair balm, it had a gel feel to it. After using this little sample I noticed my hair was softer and my fly a ways were tamped and not sticky up. I will be getting a full sized bottle of this product.  

Last but not least a product that as been in many other empties post is the Dove go fresh cool moisture body wash. The one in this empties is just a traveled sized one but I have gone thru many full sized of these body washes. This body wash as such a fresh smell to it not to over powering just right, it lathers up really quick. This body wash is a little thick a little goes a long way with this product. This body wash is something I will never stop repurchasing.

That's all for this empties post, hope you guys enjoyed this post. In a comment below let me know some of the beauty items that you have used up in the last month or two. I would love to know what products you guys have used up. Always love to hear your guys feedback. Talk to you guys soon.

A QUICK DRUG STORE HAUL!!!


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a great week. For today's post I want to share with you guys a really quick drug store haul that I picked up at the drug store yesterday. First thing I picked up is the Maybelline the colossal big shot mascara. I have a whole post coming soon just talking about this product and my thoughts on it, so I am not going to say much what I can say is that so far I have been really enjoying it but it does have a annoying side to it. Second item that I picked up yesterday is the Loreal Blend Artist Infallible Sponge. I just recently got rid of my beauty blender and I only have watched and read so many positive things about this sponge and how wonderful it is. I wanted to see what was all the hype about and to see if this can fill in the shoes of my beauty blender. (lol)

The last beauty item I picked up at drugstore is the Wet n Wild Flat Top Brush. This is a other item I got because you tuber MakeupbyTiffanyD was raving about it. I haven't tried it since buying it but there will be a post on here of me talking about the brush and my thoughts so look out for that.

That's all for this haul post I know it was a short and quick one, but I hope you guys enjoyed it anyway. Let me know in a comment below if you have tried these products out already and what were thoughts on them did you end up liking them? I would love to hear your feedback. Talk to you guys soon.

DID WONDERS TO MY HAIR!?! | MOROCCAN OIL TREATMENT | REVIEW




                                    Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well. Today I want to chat about a hair product that I have been loving these couple of months, that is the Moroccan Oil Treatment. This oil treatment comes in two different sizes, I have the small size bottle that is the 0.85 oz which cost ($15.00). Then there is a 1.7 oz bottle which is bigger and it cost ($34.00). Its one of those products that it depends on how much you want to spend. I found this to be a thick oil so a little goes a long way. Even tho its a thick oil it doesn't weigh down my hair at all, which is a big plus since I do have fine curly hair that gets weighed down when I put to many products on it.  

I have noticed that this product as made my hair feel softer, and not so rough.This also as giving my hair a lot of nourishes like it looks like my hair as more shine to it. Not sure if this was just me but I have been noticing that my hair as been growing and drying a lot faster since I have been using this treatment. Love that when you apply this oil to your hair that it absorbs really quickly into your hair no matter if your hair is wet or dry. A other thing that I love about this hair treatment is that once you apply it and its all absorb into your hair this product won't leave your hair feeling oily or greasy. 

This oil treatment as a very pleasant scent to it nothing to over powering. I apply this to my ears down really focusing this product on my ends, I don't apply this to my roots since this is a oil and on the more thick side of oils it will just weigh down my hair if I do. Overall amazing product that I think it as done wonders for my hair. I honestly think that any kind of hair type can use this oil treatment and be happy with it. I would recommend that everyone try this item out for your self's, totally wroth the money. PS this also helped with tamping my fly ways.

That's all for this review on the Moroccan Oil Treatment. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know a comment below if you guys have tried out this product and what were your thoughts on it, did you have the same out come as me ? I would love to hear your guys feedback. Talk to you guys soon.

DISAPPOINTING!? | MUA PROFFESSIONAL STIPPING BRUSH



Hey you guys. Hope everyone had a amazing week so far. For today's post I want to share my thoughts on a makeup brush that I have been using for a couple of months now and I have few things to say about it. The makeup brush that I am talking about in case you missed the title is the MUA Proffessional Stipping Brush. This makeup brush can be found exclusive at CVS, that's where I have only seen these brushes at. This brush will cost you ($17.50) which I think is on the more high end price for a drugstore makeup brush.

This is a very soft brush to the touch, yes but I notice when applying anything to the face with this item it felt very sharp and pokey which is not something you want in a makeup brush. Very light weight brush which I always like in brushes. This tool is perfect for blending out product, it makes the product that you blended out look flawless. Also love that if you wanted to use this makeup-brush for applying highlight, blush or bronzer it won't pick a lot of powder just the right amount of powder. When it comes to applying foundation with this brush this isn't that great it applies foundation very streaky and to be quite honest with you it was not the easiest brush to work with, but the end result was flawless.

Washing this brush is a dream product comes off super easy, doesn't take a lot of work to get this tool clean. This brush also dries really fast after washing it, which is always nice. The two major downfalls to this makeup brush that I have which is why its a disappointing tool to me. First is that it sheds lot when washing and when I am using the brush on my face. The last big downfall I have is I noticed when I don't use this brush on a daily the hair's started to go all wacky then when I did use it and washed the brush the hairs on it never went back to normal they stayed all crazy looking.

That's all for this disappointing review of the MUA Professional Stipping Brush. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below if you have tried out this brush and liked it, do you have any tips on what I am doing wrong? I would love to hear your guys feedback.

EMPTIES | PRODUCTS THAT I HAVE USED UP ( TWO FIRST IMPRESSIONS)


Hey you guys! Hope you are doing well today, if not here is a virtual hug from me. Today I want to share with you all my empties form the months of January and the beginning of this month February. I am going to start at the left top concern of this picture above. I am going to leave the two first impressions of this post to the last. First empty is the Johnson's Baby Shampoo, this is a great product for washing your makeup brushes it gets your brushes clean and smelling great and yet its gentle enough on them. Second empty of this past one and half months is the Neutrogena Oil - Free Acne Wash this was a great cleanser it got my face clean, removed any dirt, oil and even any left over makeup that maybe my face towelette didn't get. I also found that it did what it claimed it does which is keep my acne at bea.

Next empty is the Aussie Hair Insurance Leave - In - Conditioner. This was a ok leave in conditioner, I didn't really notice that this product was doing anything for my hair at all. It smells really fruity which I enjoyed but the product it self was not that impressive at all. I will not be repurchasing this item again. Fourth empty is the Vaseline Intensive Care Hand Cream. This was a very good hand cream the only big down fall I had with hand cream and its why I wont be re buying this product again. The scent to this item, smells like straight up heavy strong perfume. It was just to much for me.

Next empty I am going to talk about are the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleasning Cloths. If you have been following my blog for a while now then you have seen these cloths on a empties before. These cloths are great for using them in the morning when I am in a hurry or to be honest with you just lazy and don't want to mess with my face cleaning routine. These wipes smell very calming and they do a good job in removing any dirt, oil or any left over makeup on your face from the night before. Great wipes! something that as become a holy grail of mine that I always re buy when I am out of them. Sixth empty that I have used up is the Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo (traveled sized). Great dry shampoo it got rid of any oil that my hair might have had. My hair looks clean and smells good. Already bought a other one of these to put in my traveling pack.

Next product that I have used up the Rose Face Mask From Fresh. I have done a whole review post on this product already here on my blog. So if you want to know my full thoughts on this please feel free to check that post out. Anyways this was a good face mask I really enjoyed it. This face mask smells exactly like roses it even as a tiny little roses petals inside the jar. This face mask is on the more gel like masks. This product leaves my skin feeling so smooth, soft and hydrated. Just a great mask its gentle enough that you can get away with using this item everyday if you wanted to. The only thing that is holding me back from repurchasing this beauty item is the price tag. ($65.00)

The last empty before I start talking about my two other products that are going to be more of a first impressions is the Elizabeth And James Nirvana White Perfume. This is such a beautiful perfume its smells amazing last all day which is a great plus! Love wearing this by it self or laying it with the black Nirvana Black. Now on to the first impressions part of this post. First one I am going to talk about is the Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Paper Mask. This is a very wet mask but smells really nice just like a pina colada. This face mask was a little big for my face I found, I love that it doesn't slip and slide after applying it. My thoughts after using this one time mask my skin felt tight which I wasn't a big fan of. There was not much oil I guess after using this item. My skin did feel more smooth after which I always enjoy.

And finally the last first impression I want to share with you all is the Sephora Pomegranate Eye mask. First thing I want to say that this eye mask did not smell like pomegranate at all to me it smelled like wine. Is that weird? Love that this eye mask and most of the eye mask that I have tried from the sephora line they stay under the eyes and don't move around once applied. Once taking this eye mask off I notice that under my eyes were more awake and less tried looking. I found that my under eyes felt more tight like this mask did some firming. Which hey I am not going to complain about. Overall great eye mask. 

That's all for this empties | first impressions. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what have you used up lately. As always talk to you guys soon.

WROTH THE HYPE OR NOT??? WET n WILD SHIMMER PALETTE (boozy brunch)


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well. Today I want to share my thoughts with you guys on a product that I have been using for a month or so and I already have so much to say about it. First I want to say this highlighter is ($5.99) which a great price point,and very inexpensive for the amount of product you are getting. This is a a golden shimmering highlighter so if you don't like gold highlighters with lots of shimmer in it then this is not the item for you. Highly pigmented product, a little goes a long way with this highlighter. Not a super intense highlighter when used dry but a little still goes a long way with this product, its a little more intense when you use this item wet but not by much. The pink and brown stripes on this highlighter you don't need to be scared of because it won't show at all on your face when you apply it. 


The two down falls I have with this product which is not even a big deal not at all but I find the packaging a little bulky and big for my taste. I also have been noticing no matter if i use this highlighter wet or dry it does apply a tiny bit patchy on the face, not like really bad or anything but you do notice it when applying it. Other then that this is a very pretty golden highlighter, to answer the question in the title of this post yes this product is totally worth the hype, if you are willing to look past the patchy applying part and won't mind working with this product a little more.Here is a side note about the Wet & Wild company they don't test there products on animals, which is always a amazing thing and makes me very happy to see.

That's all for this review | worth the hype post. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful if you were thinking of getting it for yourself. Let me know in comment below if you guys have tried out this highlighter and what were your thoughts on it. I would love to hear your guys feedback on this product. As always talk to you guys soon.

FAVORITE NEW MASCARA!? | MAKEUP FOR EVER EXCESSIVE LASH (Review)


Hi everyone hope you all are doing well. Today I want to share my thoughts on the Makeup For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara. At the end of this post you will find out if this mascara as become my new favorite. I got this mascara as a sample for begin a member of the V.I.P program at sephora. This mascara retails for ($25.00). The wand to this mascara is a slim rubber wand with very short bristles on it. Since this wand is so small and slim it's perfect enough to get into the inner corner of my eyes to get those baby lashes.

This mascara is on the more drier side of mascaras. Love that this mascara gave me so much length and thickness to my very short lashes. When it came down to volume didn't really happen for me. The Makeup For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara is easy to remove from the eyes no need to be rubbering at your eyes.The last two things that I want to say about this mascara that are great is that I love that it wont clump up when you applying it to your lashes, and it creates a beautiful natural almost feather like affect to the lashes. This really is a great mascara for everyday use I think anyway... There is a downfall that I saw when using this product I noticed a little flaking of the mascara at the end of the day. If you can look past the one downfall of this mascara I would totally say that everyone should give this mascara a chance.

That's all for this review post on the Makeup For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara. Hope you guys enjoyed this post, maybe even found it helpful in some way. Let me know a comment below if you have tried out this item out already and what were your thoughts on it. I would love to hear your guys feedback. As always talk to you all very soon.

NEW MAKEUP FOR 2017! (haul a mixture of drugstore and high end)


Hey everyone, hope you are doing well. Have a amazing weekend! Today I want to share with you guys a beauty haul that has been sitting in my closet for a week now just collecting. I am sure you can tell by the photo above its a mixture between drugstore and high end items. I am not going to go in any order I am just going to start this haul at the top right concern of the picture above. The first item that I picked up is the Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser. I am almost done with the cleanser I have now, so I thought it would be the perfect time to pick this up this one since I only heard amazing things by MakeupBytiffanyd on her YouTube channel.

Next product I picked up is a paper mask from the Yes Line. I am guessing these masks are new to there line since on the package it said new. I am excited to try this out to see how I liked it, I have never tried anything from this line before. When feeling the package it feels like there is a lot of liquid in it, I hope this mask isn't to messy of a mask. Third item that I got on this haul is the Flower Miracle Matte Translucent Finishing Powder, this is a other brand that I haven't tried. I am excited to see how I like this finishing powder since I only heard very good things about this brand and the product it self.

Next I picked up a eye mask from the Sephora line, the eye mask that I am going to try this time is the anti - fatigue & energizing pomegranate eye mask. I love the sephora line of eye mask and face so I have no doubts this one is going to become a holy grail of mine. The last full item that I got is the Wet n Wild Shimmer Palette in (Broozy Brunch) this highlighter as been highly popular in the beauty community lately, I have tried this item out already since buying it, I already have a few thoughts about this highlighter but I am not going to say it on this post since I am planing on doing a whole review post on just this item. So keep your eyes out for that post, it should be out soon.

Next beauty item is a item that I got using my V.I.P. points at sephora. It's the Burberry Fresh Glow. I am very excited that this was one of the choices to pick from because I only heard really good things about this product from YouTuber MakeupbyTiffanyD. The last two items that I got are samples first is the Shiseido Wrinkle Resist 24 Hour Eye Cream and the last sample size item is a hair balm from the brand IGK.

That's all for this high end | drugstore haul. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found something new that you want to give a try. If there is any item in this haul that you want me to give you guys a more in denth review let me know in a comment below. As always talk to you guys soon.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water ( REVIEW | GIMMICKY???)


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well. Today I want to share my thoughts on a product that I thought was so gimmicky and fake. That is the Smashbox Photo Primer Water. I bought this item on a whim just to see what was all the hype was about since I have heard a lot about this product in the beauty community. This bottle comes in two different sizes. The size that I have is the 1.0 oz bottle. The other size bottle that this product comes in is the 3.9 oz. bottle. There is a price difference in the two bottles the bigger one cost ($32.00) and the smaller bottle cost ($16.00), so it all depends on how much you would like to spend. 

This primer water is lightweight, fast absorbing on the skin. Which is always a great thing to see out of a primer. This product also dries really fast on the face. A other big plus with me. This product as a fine mist to it, but the spray thing it self was a little difficult to work with at the beginning it wouldn't spray the product evenly on the face, I don't have that problem anymore that was just a little annoying thing to have to deal with this item.   

The smashbox photo finish primer water as a very strong scent to me smells like green tea. Not sure yet if I am digging the scent to this item. The plus side is that the scent doesn't last long after applying the product. I like that this a oil free primer. 

My face makeup and concealer does apply a lot smoother and easier when I do use this product, the only face product that I find that doesn't really work with this primer is my Clinique BB Cream I found that the bb cream would start making a little tiny balls on my face, then again it could have been the brush I used to apply the bb cream. I use this product again with the the Clinique BB Cream and I didn't have that problem anymore.

I did stop using the Smashbox Photo Finish to see if I would see a difference in my skin. Surprisingly I did I really thought I wouldn't, I found when I don't use this primer I see a lot more of my skin texture thru my makeup. Which I honestly didn't think I would see when not using this item. 

Here are two a little things that I noticed and really enjoy about this product. First thing is that the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water adds an extra bit of hydration to the skin, which is always a great thing since I do have dry skin. Second I like the idea of using a spray as a primer since I can get very lazy when it comes down to my beauty routine. (haha). Here is a little fun tip that saw when I opened the box of this item and thought I would share with it with you guys. If you put this item in the fridge it will give this product more of a cold refreshing mist to your face. 

The two downfalls that I have with this item is that it won't even out my skin tone and its not a two in a one product, meaning that I can't set and prime my skin. I only can prime my face. Overall good product now that I reread this review I do see that there is more pros then cons against this product. This is one product that I didn't have really high hopes for but at the end it really surprised me.

That's all for this review on the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. Hope you guys enjoyed this post, and maybe found it helpful. Please let me know in a comment below if you guys have tried out this product and what were your thoughts on it? I would love to know your guys feed back. As always talk to you all soon.

DECEMBER EMPTIES | PRODUCTS THAT I HAVE USED UP!


Hey everyone,hope you are all doing well.Today I want to share some products that I have used up in the month of December. I have a lot of products to get thru so lets just jump right into these empties. 

First empty is the Nexxus Humectress Replenishing System Conditioner. This is a very heavy conditioner so a little goes a long way. The scent to this conditioner was very pleasant and not over powering. It moisturized my ends very nice and also left my hair feeling very soft and silky. Overall great product, would I repurchase this item again yes only in travel sized form since a full sized bottle is on the more high end prices and I just can't see myself spending that kind of money on just a conditioner.

Second empty of this past month is a travel sized item of the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray.  This is a amazing setting spray it does what it claims. This will set your makeup all day. I find that when I do use this setting spray my makeup does not move or come off thru out the day. It also leaves your makeup looking flawless. It as a pleasant scent to it. I have already bought the full sized bottle of this product. I would totally recommend anyone who as not tried out this item that you do so.. You will never find your self picking up a powder again!

Next empty is the Dove Go Fresh Cool Moisture Body Wash. If you have seen my other empties post before then I am sure you have seen this body wash in it. This is just a great body wash. I love that it as a fresh clean scent to it, and that when you apply this to your skin you get a cooling sensation. Overall great product! This is something I will keep re buying for a long time since I haven't found a other body wash that I like as much as I do with this one.

Fourth empty is the Tresemme Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo. I always find myself going back to this dry shampoo. I like how this dry shampoo isn't so heavy on the hair, but yet it still gets your hair clean. I also find that there is not a lot of build up when using this. Which is a great thing since I don't like dry shampoos that leave a lot of build up on your hair. You just cant beat the price of this product.

Next empty of this past month is the NARS Lip Pencil (RIKUGIEN). This was a sample that I got from sephora. This was a very creamy lip pencil, easy to work with it. The color was just beautiful. It was on the more pink nude side of colors. 

 Next is the Sephora Pearl Eye Mask. I believe I have talked about this eye mask already here on my blog if I am not mistaking. This is a just a amazing eye mask. It brightens under the eye, it also evens out eye contour skin. This eye mask also illuminates the skin while giving your eyes the look of a more fresher and radiant to them. This hands down is one of my favorite mask from the sephora line. 

Third to last item of this past month is something that is always in a empties post that is the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. These makeup wipes will forever be my holy grail wipes. These wipes take off all my makeup even mascara with just one wipe. They are not rough on my skin and don't irritate my eyes.

Next empty is the Vaseline Lip Therapy Chap Stick. This was a very moisturizing chap stick that left my lips soft and touchable. The scent to this item was very pleasant it smelled likes roses but not over powering. The one thing that I did enjoy about this product not only did moisturized my lips but it left a fate pink color to my lips, so most of times I found that I didn't want to add anything else to my lips since this gave my lips come color to them. The one downfall to this product that was annoying is that it came in a tube where I would have to stick my fingers into it every time I wanted to use it, I would have liked this product a lot more if it was in a squeeze tube that way my fingers don't have to touch the product.

Last but not least is the Pore Fessional from Benefit. This was a great primer it even out my skin tone, blurred away my pores and made my makeup go on lot easier. I also found when using this product that my makeup would last longer then when I would not use this item. Overall great primer! I cant really say much more about this item since this is only a sample sized. No I have not re bought this item since getting this sample.

That's all for this empties post. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what you guys have used up this past month. Talk you guys soon.
