SEPHORA HAUL | SPRING 2017




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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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



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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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