BEAUTY HAUL | ULTA + DRUGSTORE!!!


Hey everyone hope you all had a great week so far. Today's post I want to share with you all a beauty haul that I picked up lately. First item that I picked up is something that I have bought before and really enjoyed it. That is the Loreal Blend Artist Infallible Sponge. This beauty sponge does a beautiful job in blending your foundation or bb cream. Next item is the El.f. Intense Lnk Eyeliner  I have used this already and have some thoughts on it. I am not going to share them on this post because I am planning on doing a whole post talking about this item and if I liked it or not. What I can say is that I am pretty shocked and impressed with item and very happy that I bought it. 

Third item I picked up is the Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Tapered Shadow Brush. As you can see I haven't even took the brush out of the packaging yet. That's because I don't have a cup to store it in yet nor do I have eye shadows to use this brush with. Once I get some eye shadows and use this brush I will be doing a update post on this item and letting you guys know my thoughts on it and if its worth the money. 

Next item is something I picked up because youtuber makeupbytiffanyd was talking about how much she loves this brush, so I went out and bought it. This is a other brush that I haven't took out of the packaging for the same reasons. I will also be doing a update post on this item and letting you guys know what were my thoughts on this tool. 

Last beauty item that I picked up is the not so new anymore Loeal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. I have used this product already since buying it. So far I have been really enjoying this mascara and I think slowly its becoming my favorite mascara. 

That's all for this beauty haul I know it was kinda of a small haul next time there will be a bigger haul. Anyways hope you guys enjoyed this post and fond something that you might want to try also. Let me know if you guys have tried out any of these items already and what were your thoughts on them. Also let me know what you guys have picked up from the drugstore or Ulta lately. I love hearing your guys feedback. Talk to you all soon.

WHAT I"M LOVING | AUGUST FAVORITES 2017


Hey everyone hope you are all doing good and had a good week, hope you all have a great weekend. Today's post I am going to be sharing some of my favorites from this past month I know its not a lot but these are truly have have been my favorites. I know I am a little late on the monthly favorites but better late then never right?....

First favorite of this past month is the Clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion + pump. I have done a whole post talking about what were my thoughts on it and how I liked it if you are interested in seeing more on what I had to say about this product then please feel free to go and give that post some love. This moisturizer really does moisturize your face leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft and ready for makeup. I like using this item at night and before I apply makeup, since this is a lite weight product I find that it doesn't mess with my makeup application. Even tho its a lite weight moisturizer you don't need a lot of product. I would recommend this to anyone who as dry to combination skin type.  

Second item that I have been really enjoying using this past month is the Bosica Charcoal Makeup Melter cleansing oil balm. Just want to say that this is a sample sized of his product not the full sized one. I have found that this oil balm really gets all of my makeup off my face with out over drying it. I was shocked on how well it did when it came down to mascara it really broke down the mascara making it so easy to wash off. The scent it self is ok not my favorite scent that I have smelled in a cleanser.  Overall good product and I would repurchase the full sized tube.

Last favorite that I want to mention is a lip product that is the Aquaphor Advanced Therapy. This so far as been the only lip balm that I have found that as kept my lips from not chapping. I have found with other chap sticks my lips will get chapped again after the balm as worn off, with this item I don't have that problem. This is a thick and rich balm so a little will go a long way. Since this is so thick and rich I feel like I will have this little tube for a while. I like applying this after applying moisturizer so when I am ready to apply lipstick my lips are nice and smooth, also at night before going to bed. I also found it interesting that you can use this balm for other things like your cuticles, dry cracked or irritated skin. I totally recommenced this product to anyone who suffers from chapped lips. 

That's all for this monthly favorites. Hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what have been your favorites from this past month. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

NEW HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT??? | CLINIQUE DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT MOISTURIZING LOTION (with pump)


Hey everyone hope you are all doing good and had a great week, have a fantastic weekend. Today's post I want to share with you all a product that I have been really enjoying that last few months now. Lets get right into it. The first thing I noticed right away is the scent to this product it as a very strange scent to it you can definitely smell it when you are applying it to your face. I find that a little weird that it as a scent to it since on the box and on the bottle it said 100% fragrance free. 

I found this to be a lite weight moisturizer, it as and feels like a smooth silky texture to it. I also found this moisturizer to be non greasy to face and drys and absorbs quickly to the skin.  Which are all good things in my book. This moisturizer I find works beautifully under makeup doesn't mess up or change anything leaves your skin feeling soft and ready for foundation. I have only had this product for only a couple of months now and I barely made it thru half of the bottle, this will last you a long time. Even tho its a lite weight moisturizer I find that I only need a little of this product to moisturize my whole face.

I get really dry skin especially during the winter time and I find this product fixes that immediately. I don't find this moisturizer to be heavy during the summer it just a perfect product for all year around. I love that this item as a pump to it, I find it makes it easier to control the amount of product that comes out. On the sephora website it said that this product is recommenced for combination to dry skin. I agree with that I think if you have oily skin you might not like this item since it is so silky. This item cost $27.00. Which I don't think is a bad price point for a good product. 

Overall thoughts I really like this item and would recommend this for anyone who is looking for a good moisturizing face lotion. That's all for this review on the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. Hope you guys found this post helpful. Let me know in a comment below if you have tried out this item out and what were your thoughts on it. I love hearing your guys feedback, as always talk to you all soon.

NAILS OF THE DAY! LASTED FOR A WEEK ? (KINDA OF) WET N WILD WILDSHINE NAIL COLOR



Hey you guys! Hope you are all doing well, and have a wonderful weekend. Today's post I want to share with you guys a nail polish that I tried out recently and have collected a few thoughts about it. Let's just get started. The brand of nail polish that I bought and tried out is the Wet N Wild wild shine nail color. I have been really enjoying there line of makeup so I thought maybe there nail polishes is as good as there makeup line, there nails polishes are pretty cheap which you can pretty much guarantee that with Wild N Wild. The price was $ 1.49.

The color that I picked up is (who is ultra violet?). Which is a pretty lite purple that would look great on the nails or toes and very opaque. The consistency of this polish is very creamy, goes on the nails very smooth. It takes about two costs polish to get to that purple that is in the bottle. The applicator to this polish is pretty basic just your standard brush you find nothing to out there. I do enjoy that this product dries really fast on the nails. 

I did find that the polish started to chip on the sides but the chipping wasn't that bad at all. This was on the fourth day of wearing this polish. By the sixth to seventh day it was time to take this polish off my nails. 

Overall thoughts I really enjoyed this polish and I think for the price why not give it a try, I had a positive experience with this product. Did it chip easily I don't think so I honestly think it lasted as long as any other nail polish would. To answer the question in this blog post tile did this polish last for a week? I can say it almost did it was very close. 

That's all for this review on the Wet n Wild shine nail color. Hope you all enjoyed reading this post. Let me know in a comment below if you guys have tried out this product before and what was your thoughts on it. As always talk to you all soon.

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.

CURRENT BEAUTY OBSESSIONS & (THE BEST) CHOCOLATE CANDY


Hey everyone Hope you are doing well. Today's post I want to share with you guys some of my beauty items that I have been using this past month,and have really enjoyed and I also want to share with you all the best m&m's that I have tried yet. I cant believe we are done with a other month already this year is just flying by. Let's just jump right into it. First favorite of this month as been my Clinique acne solutions bb cream. I have done a whole review post here on my blog post talking about my thoughts on it. I believe in that post I mentioned that how I sometimes really like this bb cream and other times I am not a big fan of it. 

With that all being said I have been falling in love with product this month. This bb cream as full coverage but yet still feels lite on the face. This bb cream at least for me as a powder finish to it. I find that this bb cream last all day long. Overall great product a other thing that I love that this face product as a spf of 40 so this makes the perfect item for the summer time. 

Next favorite of this past month as been the Tarte amazonian clay 12 hour blush in (paaarty). This blush is a such a pretty warm tone dark pink color. The pigmentation to this blush is insene! You barely need to tap your brush into this product. This blush last long day on the cheeks, just a easy blush to work with. Blends out so smoothly. Overall just a fantastic item.  

Second to last favorite of this month as been the Tarte tarteist lip paint in ( birthday suit). I will be doing a review post here soon talk about this lip product so I am not going to go much into it. I will say this is such a beautiful  lite nude on the lips. Goes on to the lips like a cream lipstick but then dries down like liquid lip stick. The only down I have with this lip paint is that its not a long wearing lip paint. Other then that I have been really enjoying using this item.

Last favorite of this past month isn't a beauty item its the Winning Flavor M&M's Coffee. OMG!! you guys these m&ms taste amazing the coffee flavor isn't overpowering its just a hint of coffee that you get when you bite down on them. You guys need to try these out.

That's all of this monthly favorites. Hope you all enjoyed this post. In comment below let me know what products you guys have been enjoy using this past month, I love hearing from you all. As always talk to you soon.

NEW HOLY GRAIL EYE LINER! | MAYBELLINE NEW YORK MASTER PRECISE CURVY LIQUID EYE LINER | REVIEW


Hey everyone, hope you are doing well and had a wonderful week. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the Maybelline New York Master Precise Curvy Liquid Eye Liner that I have been using for a while now and have written down a few things that I have noticed since using this item, that I thought I would share with you all. Without further more let's just jump right into this. Let's get how much this eye liner will cost you out of the way. This item is $ 7.99 which is not bad at all for a new holy grail product from the drugstore. Love that this liquid eye liner feels like a pen when holding on to it, which makes it super easy to grip on to and super easy to apply on to the lids.

I found this liquid eye liner super easy to apply since the applicator tip is nice and firm so it makes it great for control. Which is a great thing for people whose skin on there eye lids moves when lining there upper eye lash. This eye liner is super pigmented a very intense black color that dries up to be a mate black on the eyes. Stays on the lids all day without moving around or smudging. When I was ready to take this off at night it came off super easy with just a makeup wipe.

A other thing that I love about this item is that the tip of this eye liner as a thick and thin side to it, so you can create both looks by just turning this liquid eye liner to the side. Since this item is nice and small it makes a perfect beauty product to travel with. You can throw it in your bag without worrying that its going to ruin your bag since the cap to this item clicks closed, it makes nice and secure. The one downfall that I do have with this product that it doesn't have a other colors in this line I would love if Maybelline would come out with a dark brown of this curvy liquid eye liner. I would totally repurchase this item again. 

That's all for this review on the Maybelline New York Master Precise Curvy Liquid Eye Liner | new holy grail item. Hope you all enjoy this post and maybe found it helpful if you were thinking of getting this for your self but weren't to sure. Let me know in a comment below what were thoughts on this beauty item if you have tried it out already. As always talk to you all soon.

$2.99 MAKEUP BRUSH!!! WORTH THE MONEY?? | WET N WILD FLAT TOP BRUSH


Hey everyone hope you are doing well. Today's post I am going to be sharing my thoughts on the Wet n Wild Flat Top Brush. First I want to say this is a very soft brush to the touch and on the face. This is not a super dense brush it as some flexible to it. This brush applies foundation and bb cream flawless to the face without any streaks. A other plus side to this brush before I get to the downfalls is that this brush doesn't shed at all when it comes time to washing this makeup brush. Also love that the brand Wet N Wild is vegan! 

Now on to the downfalls to this brush. First is that this flat top brush soaks up a lot of product so you end up using a lot more product then you wanted to. A other thing that I didn't really like about this tool is that since it soaks up a lot of product I also found the product didn't sit on the top of the brush, the product soaks all the way down to the brush which is a little annoying. When it came down to cleaning this tool product does come off pretty easily no need to really work with it to get all of the product off, but you do have to work with the brush to get the product that as soaked all the way down the brush. Second to last thing I want to say is that I felt like it left a stain on the brush since the product came so way down the brush, no matter how much I clean this tool that stain is not coming off. 

The price of this makeup tool is ($2.99) which is not a bad price at all. Overall thoughts I do like this makeup brush and I will continue to use it, I just wished that this tool didn't soak up so much product if Wet n Wild would fix that this makeup brush would hands down beat some of the high end foundation brushes since that's what I use this tool for. If you guys haven't tried out this makeup brush yet its definitely worth the try cant go wrong for $2.99.

That's all for this review on the Wet N Wild Flat Top Brush. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and found it helpful if you were thinking about getting this makeup tool for your self's. In a comment below let me know what were your thoughts on this makeup brush if you have tried it out already, I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you soon.

EMPTIES!!! | PRODUCTS THAT I USED UP LATELY + A MIMI REVIEW


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well today. For today's post I want to share with you some of my empties just products that I used up in the month of May. I am not going to make this intro long since there is a lot of products to get thru, so without thru more let's just jump right into this. The first empty is the Bastiste Dry Shampoo this is a such a great dry shampoo it absorbs all of the oil and sweat that you have in your hair without leaving any build up on to your hair. This is a gentle dry shampoo in the sense that a little of this goes a long way at least for me it does. I have replaced this and bought a other one. 

Next empty is of course a hand lotion if you guys know me then you know that I have very dry hands and I go thru hand lotions like crazy. The lotion that I used up is the Eucerin Skin Calming Hand Lotion. This was a ok hand cream it was nice and rich but I didn't feel like it really did anything for my hands at all. I had to keep putting this hand cream on my hands at least three to fours times a day if I wanted my hands not to feel so dry and uncomfortable. I will be not repurchasing this product again because of that. If you guys have any good recommendations for hand creams please let me know in a comment below, I would love to find a hand cream that will help with my dry and they uncomfortable feeling that I get at times. 

Third product that I used up is the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths. I have talked about these cloths before on other empties post and raved about how much I love them. The cloths are great for those mornings where you just don't want to fuss with your morning routine but still want to get the oil and dirt off your face form the night before. These are the perfect cloths to do that with they remove any dirt or oil even any left over makeup that I might have missed when washing my face. They are gentle on face, I also find that these cloths help keep my acne at bea. 

Next empty is the Garnier Skin Active Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes. I cant remember what I used these towelettes for, but I do remember that these makeup remover cloths worked and they had a very clean smell to them. Fifth empty of this post is the Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Mascara. I have done a full review on this item telling you my thoughts on it and if I would re buy this again, if you are interested in what I had to say please feel free to check that post out.  Anyways this mascara was a alright mascara I just found this mascara hard to work with and also it got clumpy very easily if you were not careful with it. 

Next empty is a brand of lashes that I buy very so often that is the Ardell Natural Lashes. These lashes were super lite on the eyes. Even tho it said natural looking lashes on the package I found that these lashes gave my own lashes so much volume. When it came down to length I found them to be the same length as my own. Overall great lashes, bought a other pair of them today.Next empty Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water I have also done a full review post on this product here on my blog. This was a good item I see that my makeup applied a lot smoother when I did use this spray, the smell to this spray was very nice. Overall good product would I re buy it probably not just because it didn't do anything for my pores.

Fourth to last empty is the Origins GinZing Energy - boosting Moisturizer. This was a amazing moisturizer it was on the heavy side of moisturizers but it really did help with my dry skin. This moisturizer smelled like straight up like oranges. This product also help to brighten up my face and give my face such a pretty fresh glow. Hands down one of my top holy grail face lotions. I need to get a other jar of this stuff. If you guys have not  tried out this item yet you need to! Next empty is the Makeup Forever Excessive Lash Mascara. This was a ok mascara it was on the more drier mascara which I am not a big fan of since I feel like you have to work it a little more then if it was a little bit more wet. This mascara gave my lashes so much length and separated them so easy. The only downfall that is stopping me from buying the full sized one is that even tho it gave me the length I wanted this mascara didn't give me any volume at all and that's what I want the most out of any mascara when I buy them.

Second to last empty is the Moroccanoil Treatment. I have done a full review post on this product telling you my thoughts and what I think of it. If you are interested in reading that please feel free to check that post out. Anyways this was a amazing hair product. This hair oil did so much for my hair, Once I started using this product I noticed that my hair was a lot smother and softer to the touch, I also noticed that my hair grows a lot faster and dries a lot faster since using this. I don't put this oil all over my hair just because it is a oil and it will weigh down your hair. I apply this from the top of my ears down really focusing this product on my ends. Already bought the full sized bottle. 

The last empty / mini review that I want to share with you guys is a face mask that I got form sephora for begin a member of there V.I.P program that is the Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask.  First thing that I noticed right away is that this is a foam face mask which I was not expecting at all. This mask was super easy to apply to the face since it was foam. The scent to this face mask smelt like cumber but I feel like all of the Fresh stuff as that smell to there products. After using this mask my face did feel more softer to the touch and it looked like the mask gave my face a pretty brighten glow look. I love that this mask didn't tighten up your face when it was drying you could still move your face and talk while having the mask on. I would repurchases this mask again.

That's all for this empties / mini review post.  Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful if you were thinking of trying out any of these items. In a comment below let me know what beauty products have you guys used up lately. I love hearing from you guys. As always talk to guys soon.

MAY FAVORITES | PRODUCTS THAT BEEN LOVING + TWO NEW HOLY GRAIL PRODECTS


Hey everyone hope you had a good week this week and have a amazing weekend. This week post I want to share my favorite products from this past month. I cant believe this month is almost over this year is flying by. Without further more lets get into these favorites. First favorite of this past month as been my Loreal Blend Artist infallible Sponge. This beauty sponge applies makeup to the face flawless, its a squishy sponge to the touch. Its not dense and hard at all. I do wet this sponge even tho on the box it came with it doesn't say anything about that you have to wet it before you use it, I just feel like a beauty sponge works better when its damped. Overall amazing sponge I think everyone should go and get yourself's one you wont be disappointed.

Next favorite of this month which is slowly becoming a holy grail item for me. That is the Origins Original Skins Retexuizing Mask. I have used this mask a couple times this month and I love the way my skin feels after using it. My skin feels so soft, smooth, and clean like there is a glow to it. This mask as a rose scent to it but nothing to overpowering where you feel like the scent is to much. This is a clay mask which I have never tried before and now cant get enough of it. Like I said in the beginning I feel like this mask does clean my pores out. 

Third favorite of this month as been the Maybelline Mater Precise Curvy Liquid Liner. This eye liner is so easy to use goes on the eyes super easy with no work. I love that it as a fine tip to it also love that its a marker which I am finding a lot easier then a eye pencil. This liquid eye liner stays on the eyes all day long with out smudging or fading away. This is a other product that is slowly becoming a holy grail of mine.

The last favorite of this month I am sure its a lot of peoples favorite brow product. I am talking about the Goof Proof Brow Pencil by Benefit. The one I have is a traveled sized one since this is my first time using this item. I have to say its a super easy brow pencil to work with. It doesn't take a lot of effort to get your brows filled and to get them to look the way you want. I love that this pencil stays on the brows all day. Overall great brow pencil if you are looking for a effortless pencil that you don't need to work with it a lot then you definitely want to try this out. 

That's all for this monthly favorites. Hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully found a new beauty item that you might want to go out and try it out for yourself's.

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.

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.

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.
