NEW FAVORITE DRUGSTORE MASCARA?!?! | MAYBELINE VOLUM' EXPRESS THE FALSIES BIG EYES MASCARA


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a great week, have a fanatic weekend. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the Maybeline Volum' Express The Falsies big eyes Mascara. I have been using this item for a couple of months now and I have gathered some thoughts on it that I thought I would share with you all. Without further more let's jump right into it. First thing I want to talk about is the packaging to this mascara. For me this packaging is a little strange since there is two wands one for the upper lashes and a other one for the lower lashes. I have to be honest I have never understood these kind of mascaras before I have always found these to be a little gimmicky and pointless.  

As I am sure just by the photo you can tell that the wands look different from each other. The wand that you use for your upper lashes is thicker and it as longer bristles to it, the lower lash wand is a lot thinner and the bristles are a lot shorter. They both are plastic bendable wands. I have used both wands and I have found that I like the thicker wand better then the thin one since the thicker one covers more lashes, I just like it better then the thin one. To be really honest I don't understand why this mascara needs the two wands when the product inside the tube is the same. I also have found myself never really using this item like it said on the tube, I just use the thicker wand for my upper and lower lashes. 

Let's talk about the actually product now (lol).  I found this mascara to be on the more wet side of mascaras which I don't mind but since its so wet at the beginning I did find it a little hard to work with and it clumped up a little on the lashes but nothing that I could not fix. This mascara gave my lashes lots of volume and length which is a always a great thing to find a in item. The downfall to that is this mascara you had to work with it a little bit to get to the volume and length that I wanted form this product. You also have to work with it pretty quickly since I found this mascara dries pretty quickly on the lashes, which means if you want to apply a second coat to your lashes you might find it a little difficult since by the time you are finished applying the first coast the mascara is already dried and hard.

After applying this mascara to my lashes and wearing it for a couple of hours when I went to grace over my lashes with my finger, my lashes felt hard and crunchy which I don't like at all. The upside is that this product comes off pretty easily off the eyes when you want to take it off for the night. The other upside to this product is that it didn't flake or smudge off thru our the day. This mascara retails for $6.59 which isn't a bad price point for a drug store mascara, is it my new favorite drugstore mascara ? I would say no its not my new favorite but I also don't totally hate it if that makes sense. 

That's all for this review on the Maybeline Volum' Express The Falsies big eyes Mascara. Hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below if you guys have you tried out this product already and what were your thoughts on it. Also let me know in a comment below if you guys have any tips and tricks on how I can make this item work better for me. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

TARGET, OLD NAVY (HAUL!!!) + SHOES


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a good week so far. Have amazing weekend! Today's post I want to share with you all a fashion haul that I have picked up in the last few weeks from Target and Old Navy. Without further more let's get into it. Let's start with the stuff I got from Target, first item is this pink and orange strip sweater. This looks super comfy and warm so excited to wear this on Christmas Eve. The last item I got isn't clothes its these high heel booties. I tried them on in the store and once I got home they are super comfortable and easy to walk in. Love that these booties have a nice chunky heel with a nice thick platform that what makes them so comfortable. I will also be wearing these booties on Christmas Eve and on Christmas. 

Next is the items I got from Old Navy. First item I picked up is this olive green cardigan at the store this felt so soft. Pretty excited to wear this this weekend. The last thing I got at Old Navy is just a white cami for some reason every time I buy a white cami they just disappear and I cant find them. I will be doing outfits of the day wearing these items, so be sure to look out for that post coming very soon.

That's all for this haul post. Hope you all enjoy this post and maybe found something that you want to go and get for yourselves. As always talk to you all soon.

MAYBELLINE PRODUCT THAT I DON'T RECOMMEND | PRODUCT FAIL :(


Hey everyone hope you are doing well, and had a great week so far. Have a amazing weekend ahead. Toady I want share my thoughts on the Maybebelline Superstay Better Skin Concealer. I have tried out this item for a couple of months now and I thought I would come on here and share my thoughts that I have gathered from the last few months on this product. Without further more lets jump right into it. This concealer is oil free applies smoothly under the eyes, this is also a very creamy product which is a good thing and a bad thing which I will get to in a little bit on later in this post. 

Love that this concealer blends so easily into the skin barely had to work with it to get it all smoothed out. This item as a do-foot applier which is nice. The coverage to this item is light to medium coverage, which is ok I normally go for more full coverage concealers. I would say if you have really dark circles like me you might want to skip out on this item I have found that this concealer doesn't really cover dark circles as well as I would like. Then again if you are someone who doesn't have very dark circles then you may like this better.

The staying power to this product isn't the best but its not the worst I have tried out in a concealer, since like I said before this is a very creamy concealer so I find it to slides and wear off much quicker then a other product that isn't so creamy and smooth. The only big downfall that I have with this item not to say the other stuff are not downfalls because they are I just found this one the most annoying one and I think this is what really turned me off about this item

When I went to apply this product with a makeup brush I found that by the end of the day the product looked like it all bunched up under my eyes and settled a little into my lines. Which is not a good look at all. I cant say that applying this item with a beauty blender was any better since I found that beauty blender sheered out this item a lot! I am little confused on what I should be using to apply this item, if you guys have any tips or tricks I would love to know in a comment below.

This product is $7.82 at a drugstore which isn't a bad price point at all, I think there is a lot more better concealers sold at the drugstore that I would buy over this one. This item just didn't work out for me.

That's all for this review post on the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Concealer. Hope you all enjoyed this post, Let me know in a comment below if you guys have tried out this item and what were thoughts on it? Did it work for you? I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

NOVEMBER FAVORITES HITS & MISSES!!! | (EXPENSIVE PRODUCT FAIL)


Hey everyone hope you all had a good week and have a wonderful weekend. Today's post I want to share some of my favorites and not so favorites of this past month of November. Without further more let's get right into it. I am going to be starting with favorites then we will talk about the items that I didn't really enjoy using. First favorite of this past month as been the CoverGirl vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation. This foundation applied to my face very smoothly since its more of a creamy foundation not to thick of a consistency. This item also looks flawless on the face when first applying it, the two issues I have with this product is that thru out the day it can get a bit shiny which I am not a big fan of. The last thing I am not a big fan of is that this product is in a glass bottle which can be tricky to travel with and the plastic top I don't understand why its there since it doesn't even stay on that well. Other then that I don't have a problem with this item, I love that this as a pump to it so it makes it a lot easier to control on how much product you using at a time. I love that this product gives my face a fresh glow look. 

Second favorite is the Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I have been loving using this eyebrow gel mascara so much this past month, its so easy to work with and applies so quick to the brows one swipe of this product and my brows are ready for the day. This doesn't apply to much color on the brows which is a great thing since that's what I was the most worried about when buying this item. I do have some things that I don't like about this item first is that this smells like straight up alcohol which as me a bit concerned, a other thing I don't like about this item is that when you put the spooily in the product and when you pull it out of the tube the product sometimes clumps up on the spoil which is a little annoying since you have to take a extra few seconds to scrap off the product. I can't really complain since this item was less then five dollars. Overall good product if you are looking for something easy to fill in your brows with.

Last favorite for this post is the Maybelline big eyes mascara. I am going to be posting a whole review post talking about if I liked this mascara and what I didn't like about it. If you are interested in what else I have to say about this item keep a look out for that post. Anyways I have been really enjoying this mascara so far. This is on the more wet of mascaras which I don't mind. You don't have to work a lot with this product to get the lashes to look like how you want them. I love that this mascara gives me that volume that I look for in a mascara. Really good product for the price. Now lets move on to products that really didn't work out for me. First item that didn't really work for me is the micro mini pro beauty blender, I thought this would be the perfect beauty blender to blend out concealer and really get into those inner corner of the eyes when I was buying this. I just have found myself not reaching for this item at all. If you guys have used this before let me know in a comment below what did you use it for? I would love to get some use out of this item.

Last product that didn't really work out for me is the NARS radiant creamy concealer. This concealer was to creamy for me even tho it blended into my skin flawless and looked amazing under the eyes. When wearing this product for a a couple of hours it started to clump up and look dry under the eyes. The staying power to this product was terrible it vanished after only wearing it for a couple of hours. This was just a big miss for me which is unfortunate since this is a more of a expensive item. I don't feel to guilty on throwing this item away since I did a lot of use out of it. Trust me guys I really did try and wanted this concealer to work out it just didn't for me. 

That's all for this favorites post for this past month. Hope you all enjoyed reading this post. Sorry if this was a little on the negative side of November favorites. In a comment below let me know some the beauty items you guys have used up in this past month. I love reading your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

LET'S CHAT ABOUT: THE COVERGIRL VITALIST HEALTHY ELIXIR FOUNDATION | NEW FAVORITE?!?


Hey everyone hope you are doing well and had a good week, Have a amazing weekend! Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation that I have been using for the last couple of months and have a few thoughts on it that I want to share with you all today. Without further more let's get started on this review.

First thing that I noticed that I loved about this foundation that the bottle came with a pump which always makes the application of the product a lot easier and the pump gives you a lot more control on how much product comes out at once. I also notice that the pump as a lock to it so when you are done using this product all you have to do is give the the pump a twist and it locks which is another nice thing you don't have to worry about product spilling if you accidentally knock it over. I have two downfalls when it comes down to this bottle first downfall is that this bottle is glass which it makes it harder to travel with and the last downfall is that extra plastic cover that it has, I just don't see the need for it and it doesn't really stay on at well.  

Anyways enough about the bottle and lets move on to talking about the product it self. This is a thick foundation but I don't feel like I have to use a lot of product to get the results that I want, so I would say a little goes a long way. I use about a full pump and a half and that covers my whole face and neck. The coverage to this item in my eyes is a medium to full coverage this is a build able product so you can build it up if you wanted more of a full coverage look. This foundation does have a scent to it I can definitely smell it when I am applying this to my face, so if you don't like foundations with a scent you might not like this one. The scent to me smells very herbal like I don't mind it but for someone who is bothered by scents then I can see where you would not like this item.

I have found that this foundation applies to face very smoothly and flawless. I love that this a lite weight foundation so you can't feel it on the face. The finish to this foundation I have found to be a semi matte product. I like to set this foundation with a matte powder since I do see that thru out the day this product gets a little too dewy for my taste. This product does stay on your face all day along which is always a good thing when foundation last on your face all day. If you were thinking about taking flash photography with the product I wouldn't since this as a spf of 20 which is a good thing for the summer and all year around, but not so much when it comes down to taking photos.

I love that this product comes in a wide rage of shades to chose from. This foundation cost $ 9.98 which is not a bad price point for a overall good foundation. Is this my favorite? I have to say no but if I was in a pinch and I needed a face product this would be one that I would grab. 

That's all for this review on the Covergirl Vitalist Elixir Foundation. Hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful if you were thinking about buying this for yourselves. In a comment below let me know if you guys have tried out this product and what were thoughts on it. I love reading your guys feedback. Can you also tell me how many times I said the word foundation in this post? (lol) As always talk you all soon.

DRUGSTORE HAUL!!! | JUST (some) OF MY EVERYDAY BEAUTY/SKINCARE ESSENTIALS


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a great week so far, and have amazing weekend ahead. Today's post I want to share with you all a drugstore haul which also happens to be just some of my beauty/skincare essentials. Without further more lets just jump right into this.  First item I picked up is my beloved Batiste Dry Shampoo in (tropical). I have been using a different dry shampoo the last few weeks and I already miss my batiste one. There really is nothing better then this dry shampoo. 

Second item that I got form the drugstore is not a essential at all since I have never have tried it yet. That is the Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser / Mask. I have only heard and read amazing things about this cleanser and how it cleared people's skin from acne so I thought why not give it a try and see if it does the same for my skin. Third item I got is the St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub. I normally get the apricot scrub from there line, but this one caught my eye. I have used this once already since buying it and my first impressions of this item it as a very pleasant scent to it. This scrub is more of a gentle of a scrub but it still exfoliates your skin, so far I have been enjoying this. 

Next item that I picked up from the drugstore is something I use almost once week that is the Johnson's baby shampoo. If you have been reading my blog for a while then you have seen this item tons of times here on my blog. I love using item to clean my makeup brushes and sponges this shampoo gets them clean and leaving them soft this also as a nice calming scent to it. Second to last item that I picked up is a repurchase that is the Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. I love this mascara it gives me the crazy dramatic volume that I look for in a mascara and it doesn't flake thru out the day. The only difference with one that I got that this one is waterproof. I have used this already since buying it and I will be making a update kind of post because I do see a little of a difference between the water proof one and the non waterproof one. Keep a eye out for the post soon.

The last item I picked up are my holy grail Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes. If you guys remeber that these are the fragrance free ones and I didn't like them when I tried them a while back ago. I thought why not give them a other chance and see if I can make these work for me as well as the other ones do. 

That's all for this drugstore haul, hope you all enjoyed this post. And maybe found something that you might want to go and pick up for yourself. In a comment below let me know what you guys have picked up form the drugstore lately and if there is any beauty items that you guys think I should be trying. I love hearing your guys feedback. Talk to you all soon.

EMPTIES | PRODUCTS THAT I HAVE USED | REPURCHASES +MORE!!!


Hey everyone hope you are all doing good, and had a great week so far. Have a amazing weekend ahead. Today's post I want to share with you all a few products that I have used up and give you my final thoughts on them and if I would repurchase them again. Without further more let's just jump right into it. First item is the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. I love this hand cream it leaves my hands  feeling soft, moisturized without that greasy looking that some hand creams leave behind. If I am not mistaking I believe this is my second tube of this item. I would repurchase this in a heart beat, I think this time around I will be buying the big bottle one since this little tube doesn't last very long this kind of size of hand cream is better for on the go not a everyday use. 

Second empty is the St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub, I love the st lves line there products have never let me down and this item is no different. The St. Ives apricot scrub really gets all of the dirt, oil or dead skin that you may have on your face. You do need to apply some kind of moisturizer after using this item since it does leave your face feeling a little dry. The effect that this product as after using it is so wroth the little drying that I might be feeling, this scrub almost gives my face a glow after and my makeup applies so much easier and smoother after using this item. I have re bought this already but a little different stay tuned there will be a review post on it.

Third item that I used up is the Batiste Dry Shampoo, I know I have talked about this dry shampoo in a other empties before so this one will be my second bottle that I used. I love this dry shampoo it smells like coconuts which I love the smell of coconuts but not to over powering. The Basite dry shampoo gets rid of any oil or sweat that you might have in your hair from the night before or even that day. I also love that it doesn't weigh down your hair or leave a lot of build up in your hair after a couple of uses. I have not repurchase this yet but its on my list of beauty items that I need from the drugstore.  

Next empty is the Tone Radiant Glow Illuminating Body Wash. This body wash was ok I liked the smell to it, to me this smelled like fruit mixed in with flowers is that weird ?. I say it was ok because the first couple of weeks of using this product I felt something always starching me but not really I cant explain it. The bottle it said it as diamond dust in it so maybe that was what I was feeling on my skin. I just don't know about this body wash so I wont be re buying this again. 

Next empty is the Covergirl Total Tease Mascara, I have done a whole post talking about how I liked this product and what I didn't like about it. If you are interested in what I have to say about it please feel free to go give that post some love. This mascara was ok it just didn't give me that crazy over the top volume that I look for in a mascara. This item is more of a everyday kinda of on the natural side of mascara. The thing I don't understand about this item is the wand one side of the wand it as full bristles, while the other side only the tip as bristles on it and the rest of the wand as nothing. With the wand begin like that I found it hard to apply the mascara and I was afraid that the tip with the bristles would poke me in the eye. I would not be re repurchase this again.  

Fourth to last empty is the Bosica Makeup Melter cleansing oil - balm. Please keep in mind that this jar is not the full sized product, this is a sample sized one that I got using my V.I.P member points at sephora. I have bought the fulled sized product of this since using this sample sized one. I have done a full review on this prodect here on my blog talking about how I liked it and what I didn't like about it, if you are curious on what I have to say about this beauty item please feel free to go and give that post some love. This was a great item it took off all my makeup even my mascara with no problem. The scent to this product was ok I thought they could have done a better job on that. Overall very happy that I bought the full size jar of this since I was careful not to use the whole sample sized jar in a week since its a small sample. 

Third to last empty of this post is the Clinique moisture surge extended thirst relief moisturizer. This is a other sample sized product. I am planning on getting the full sized one very soon. This is such a amazing moisturizer, its lite enough where its the perfect moisturizer to apply before your makeup since it won't mess up the application of it but yet it still  hydrates your face. Look out for a whole review post on this item once I buy the full sized product. I will hands down be repurchase this product again.

Second to last empty is the Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes. If you guys have been following me for a while then you know that I love these makeup wipes and there is always one packet of these in a empties post. These are just amazing wipes they remove all of your makeup even waterproof mascara with no problem and with just one wipe.  Already have a other packet of these with my makeup and going to get two more packets of these since I don't like running out of them. If you guys haven't tried out these makeup wipes yet you need to you will never want to be without them again. 

Finally the last empty for this post is the Eucerin Original Healing hand cream. I believe this as been in a empties post before and I also believe that I said I didn't enjoy this product because it didn't really hydrate my hands and also left a greasy feeling after applying it. I don't know why I keep re buying this item maybe is do to the fact this is the cheapest hand cream at my drugstore. 

That's all for this empties | repurchases, hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in a comment below what beauty items have you guys used up in the last or two months, I love hearing you guys feedback as always talk to you all soon.

REMOVING MAKEUP WITH A CLEANSING OIL-BALM | WROTH THE MONEY???


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well and had a great week. Today's post I want to talk about the Bosica Charcoal Makeup Melter (cleansing oil balm) that I have been using for a couple of weeks now and have gather a few thoughts on it that I would like to share with you all. Without further more let's get started. I got a sample sized one a couple of months ago from Sephora for begin a member of there V.I.P. progarm, I enjoyed it so much that I had to go out and get the full sized jar of it. 

This is a 3.0 oz jar which is not bad, since the jar it self is filled to the top. The Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter cleansing oil balm smells nice and clean it as a minty scent to it but its more of a clean mint smell. To the touch this product feels nice and smooth, to me this feels like a gel cleanser when I scooped it out with my fingers. The reason why scoop it out with my fingers is because the sample jar that I got didn't come with a scooper like this one did.

 When activated by water this product turns into this white milky soapy consistency. I would recommend that you warm this product with your hands before you apply it to your face. I have found that if you don't warm it up in your hands the product doesn't work as good. That is just a tip that I have found works for me.

This product didn't bother my eyes at all or made my vision blurry, I found with some eye makeup removers they blur my vision. This removed all of my eye makeup even my mascara with out any problem. My face felt nice and hydrated and not over drying after using this item, I also felt like my face got cleaned and removed all of my makeup. 

The only downfall I have with this is that I feel like I have to use a lot of product to get all of my makeup off, maybe since I have this scopper now it will help with that and getting the right amount I need for my face. The Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter cleansing oil balm will cost you $32.00 which I know seems like a lot for a cleanser but I think its wroth the money this makes taking off you makeup so easy and I truly believe it removes all of your makeup.

That's all for this review on the Bosica Charcoal Makeup Melter cleansing oil balm. Hope you all enjoy this post and maybe found it helpful in some way. Let me know in a comment below if you guys have tried this item out or something like this and what were your thoughts on it. I love hearing your guys feedback. Talk to you all soon.

SUMMER INTO FALL 2017 OUTFIT OF THE DAY!


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well and had a wonderful week. For today's post I want to share with you all a outfit of the day that I wore a couple of days ago. If you have been following me here for a while I am sure you have seen this maxi dress before, but this is my to go maxi dress when I want to wear a long but soft and comfortable dress for the day. I bought this dress a couple of years at Nordstrom. I paired it with this jean jacket form H&M since it was a little chilly out that day. This is one of my favorite outfits to wear on days where I want to look put together but still comfortable, I also love how easy it is to take this outfit to summer into the fall season. 

That's all for this outfit of the day, hope you all enjoyed this post. As always talk to you all soon.

BEST $3.50 ELF PRODUCT THAT I HAVE TRIED!!!


Hey everyone, hope you are all doing well and had a fantastic week so far. Today's post I want to share my thoughts on the E.L.F Intense Lnk Eyeliner in (blackest black). I have been using this item for a couple of weeks now and have gather some thoughts on it. This liquid eyeliner is super lightweight, so easy to work with, won't tug on the eye when applying the product which is a great thing to find. I also found it super easy to find a good grip to hold on to it since its like holding a marker. 

Love that this liquid eyeliner as a nice felt tip to it, which I have always found easier to get a nice crisp line. The tip of this felt tip eyeliner is super thin and pointed that it makes it easy to get really close to the lash line. I was truly shocked and surprised how pigmented and black it went on, and it is still nice pigmented after the couple of weeks of using it. I have always had bad luck with ELF products but this particular product changed my luck around. 

This eyeliner didn't smudge off or flake off thru out the day it stayed on all day with that nice black intense look to it. I have to be honest I was really impressed with this item. Last few things I want to say about the ELF Intense Ink Eyeliner is that this dries down to a glossy finish which I don't mind but I really would love it more if it was a matte finish. This eyeliner comes off the eyes super easy when you are ready to take it off for the night. 

The cost of this eyeliner $3.50 which is not a bad deal at all for such a great eyeliner. The only downfall I have with this item is that I wish they had a waterproof one. 

That's all I have to say about the ELF Intense Ink Eyeliner, hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe found it helpful in some way. In a comment below let me know of any great eyeliners that you guys have been trying and that you think that I should be trying out to. Talk to you all soon.

TARGET HAUL 2017 | A MIXTURE OF FALL SWEATERS + MORE!


Hey everyone hope you are doing well, and have a amazing weekend. Today's post I want to share with you all a Target haul that I picked up a while ago and almost forgot about it. This haul is going to be mostly consist of sweaters and two tank tops and one t shirt. Anyways let's just jump right into it. First thing I picked up isn't a sweater at all its a white razor back tank top, that I have been loving layering under jackets and wearing it on its own with just some black leggings since its longer in the back. 

Next piece of clothing that I got is a t shirt don't worry we will get into the sweaters. (Lol). This t shirt is a band t shirt, I love how soft and comfortable it is on the body. I also love its a little longer in the front and back so it makes it a perfect shirt to wear with leggings or yoga pants. Third piece of clothing item that I picked up is this quarter sleeve length Star Wars lite sweater this is also a other super soft and comfortable sweater that I love layering with a jacket for when it gets a little cooler outside. 

Next is the last tank top that I picked up this is a other super lite tank that I love wearing on it own or layered with a jacket. Second to last piece of clothing is a little bit more heavier sweater but also a quarter sleeve length sweater. This shirt came in so many different colors that I am thinking about going back and getting some different colors. This is super comfortable and it keeps you warm with out sweating you out, I find this is the perfect sweater to wearing right now since its not freezing cold yet. 

The last sweater that I picked up in this haul is this long sleeve blue sweater a other super soft and comfortable sweater. You won't be able to tell in this photo but this sweater as a slit on the side to give it a little more interest, I also love that this shirt get tight also the arms so it doesn't lay on your body like a big bag. Which I find some sweaters to do.

That's all for this Target Haul. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. And found something that you might want to pick up for yourselves. Let me know in a comment below if you guys want to see any of these shirts and sweaters as a whole outfit of the day. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

IS IT A SUPER CHEAP DUPE FOR A HIGHLY LIKED HIGH PRODUCT??? | LOREAL PAIRS VOLUMINOUS PARADISE MASCARA


Hey everyone hope you are doing well. Today's post I want share my thoughts on the Loreal Pairs Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara and also share with you guys on how much this mascara reminds me of the too face better then sex mascara, could it be a dupe for a high end product? Without further more lets get right into it. The packaging to this product is super cute right a way it reminded me of the high end mascara by too faced called better then sex. Expect this lid is a lot lighter then the too faced, if you ever held a better then sex mascara you know the lid to that mascara as some weight to it. 

The wand it self is really nice and fat, the bristles are short but there is a lot of them on the wand. The wand it self as a tiny bit of a hour glass shape to it but its not as defined as the too faced one. Lets talk about some of the positive things that I found when using this product. First positive thing is that this mascara won't transfer on to the lids when applying it which is a very nice since this product is wet, does dry out a little bit after using it a couple of times. I also love that this mascara gives my lashes tons of volume, and that this is a very build able mascara I had no trouble on applying a second coat on to my lashes without the product getting  spidery and clumpy looking.

The last positive thing that I noticed when using this item that it didn't flake off thru out the day it stated put. Now lets talk about some of the stuff I didn't like when using this product. First is since this is a wet mascara when I went to use this item for the first time the product came out in clumps which is a little annoying but since it as dried out a bit I don't seem to have that problem anymore, I also notice when applying this for the first time it went on the lashes with clumps which is very annoying because it made the applying process a lot longer since I had to be scraping off some the clumps away on the side of the tube. 

Last thing I want to mention that I didn't really like about this item is that when it came time to take this mascara off my lashes I found myself rubbing a little at my eyes for it to all come off. This mascara is $ 9.99 which is not bad of a price. Overall thoughts I really enjoy this mascara even tho it as some downfalls I can see past at.  Now to answer the question in the tile is this a dupe for a high end mascara?

I can see a lot of similarities in this product that I saw in the too faced better then sex mascara, like the tons volume, the packaging is very a like, the wand it self looks like the high end item. This mascara is wet just like the high end one. Those are just some of the similarities that I noticed when using this item. I think I can safely say this is a very close dupe for the high end mascara, if are looking for a mascara that will give you the tons of volume that the too faced better then sex mascara does but you don't want to spend the money I would say try out the Loreal Pairs Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. 

That's all for this post. Hope you all enjoyed this and maybe found it helpful in some way. In a comment below let me know if you agree that the Loreal Pairs Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara is a very close dupe to the too face better then sex mascara. I love hearing your guys feedback. As always talk to you all soon.

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES 2017 | ITEMS THAT I HAVE BEEN REACHING FOR A LOT


Hey everyone hope you are all doing well, and had a wonderful week. Today's post I am going to be sharing with you all my favorite products that I have been enjoying using this past month. I know there is not a lot of products but these have been items that I have been really reaching for a lot this past month. Without further more let's jump right into it.

First favorite of this past month as been the Essence pure NUDE highlighter in (be my highlight). I love this highlight I love that it is so natural looking on the face without emphasize texture. This as a stain finish to it so there is no glitter or shimmer to it which I love not a big fan of glitter or shimmer in highlights. This highlight as a gold undertone to it but when I apply to the face the gold tones don't show up. Overall really have been liking this item and will keep using it also love how affordable it is.

Next favorite is the El.F. Intense Ink Eyeliner. I cant believe how black this eyeliner is! Too be honest with you guys elf products have always been a big miss for me they never really worked for me, so I wasn't really keeping my hopes up with this item. Did it surprise me, since this is shaped like a marker it makes it super easy to hold and work with. Love that its a felt tip. You really can get close to the lash line with this product. Great product something I would recommend you trying you really have nothing to loose since its so affordable. 

The last favorite of this month is the new but not so new anymore Loreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. I am going to be doing a whole review post on this item soon here on my blog so if you are interested in reading more on what I have to say then keep a eye out for that post. Anyways I love this mascara it gives me the over the top volume that I look for in a mascara. This is a very wet mascara, I also love that this is a very build able mascara. The wand it self as that hour glass shape that I love in the better in sex mascara from too faced. I can go on and on about how much I love this mascara and how I think everyone should give it try for themselves, I am going to leave it there until my review post.

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

SUMMER EMPTIES | PRODUCTS THAT I HAVE USED UP!!!


Hey everyone hope you all are having a great week so far. For today's post I want to share with all some of the products that I have used up lately. Without further more lets get started. The first item that I used up are the Clinique take the day off micellar cleansing towelettes. This is my second packet that I have used up, I just think these wipes do a great job on taking off your makeup without leaving your skin feeling dry. I don't think they do a good job on removing mascara. I would repurchases these again. Next empty is a perfume which you don't see a lot in my empties post. The perfume is the Elizabeth And James Nirvana Black.  I do still have a tiny bit left in the bottle but because it as been sitting on my makeup tray for so long without using it the scent as changed on me so I thought it was time to get rid of it. I love this perfume it smells amazing and I loved layering it with the white nirvana.

Third empty is the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream this hand cream really does what a hand cream is to do it moisturized my hands without leaving them feeling greasy. Overall good cream. I already bought a other one that's how much I like this item. Next empty is a other hand cream its the Vaseline intensive care hand cream this was ok it didn't moisturize my hands as good as the Cera Ve hand cream. Next empty is a other hand cream this past month or so my hands have been so dry its crazy.... its the Vaseline intensive care essential healing hand cream, this was a other ok item again it didn't perform as well as the Cera Ve did. 

 Next product that I have used up is something that I have been wanna to try and was so excited that I got to try a travel sized bottle of it. That is the Clean On ME Soap & Glory creamy moisture shower gel. This body wash is a very heavy scented product, so if you don't like very scented body products you are not going to like this. You only need to use a little bit of this item since it lathers up pretty quick with just little product on the hand. The scent doesn't last to long but you do smell it for a couple of minutes after using it. 

The next beauty item that I have used up is the Buxom Lash Mascara. This was a good mascara for a everyday bases. This gave my lashes lots of volume but its not the volume that I was hoping for its more for a everyday volume if that makes any sense at all. The wand to this mascara is big and fat, which I like. The formula was a very wet one. Overall good item would I buy it again no just because I look for over the top volume in a mascara and this one just gave me a a everyday look on my lashes. 

The fifth to last empty of this month are the Sephora Blotting papers. These blotting papers were good they removed any oil from my face without removing any makeup. They had a very tiny scent of flowers to them but nothing you would notice when using them. I also love that these were only ten dollars and come with 100 sheets. The Cover Girl blotting papers only come with 50 papers and they cost close to 10 dollars to.

Next empty is a sample that I got when I went to Sephora that is the Shiseido Wrinkle Resist Eye Cream. I cant say much about this item since it was only a sample. What I can say is that I really enjoyed it. This eye cream was a nice thick cream so it was the prefect eye cream to use at night. The scent to this product was very pleasant and not overpowering. This eye cream went under eyes smoothly. Third to last empty is the Burt's Bees lip Shimmer in (watermelon). This was a nice chap stick with a bit of a tint and shimmer. Loved wearing this on days were I didn't know what color of lipstick I wanted. This was super easy to apply. Not the best long lasting lip product. 

Next empty is something that I have talked about here on my blog before and here and there still mention it because I love it that much. That is the Loreal Blend Artist infallible Sponge. This is such a great beauty tool it blends in your foundation bb cream or any other product that you may want to use this tool for flawless. This sponge is super soft and squish, it also doesn't absorb water. I have already bought a other one of these. 

Finally the last product that I have used up is the H + W Skin- Rx Moisturizing Mask. This product smelled nice smelled a little to much like perfume for me. This is a sheet mask normally sheet masks are wet but this one was super wet the packaging was half way filled with oils. I loved that this sheet mask stayed on my face for the most part. After taking the mask off I noticed there was a lot of product on my face left over I  massaged what I could but the extra I had to wipe off there was no way that much product could be massage into my face. I also noticed after using this item that my face felt sticky, which is something I don't want in a mask. On the plus side my face did feel hydrated and it felt like I had applied moisturizer on my face. Overall it was ok I don't see myself repurchasing this again.  

That's all for my summer empties. I hope you all enjoyed this long post. In a comment below let me know what products have you guys used up lately. I love hearing you guys feedback. Always talk to you all soon.

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.

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.
