Wishlist #8

It’s been a while since I’ve done a wishlist post so here’s a makeup themed one! This is just a little sneak peak into the beauty items I’ve been eyeing lately.

NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick ($6.99 each) – Honestly, I already have this item in Exotic and Baby Doll and I still feel like I need to own every other color available! This is my favorite lip product to date (it even makes me consider throwing out a ton of other less amazing lipsticks that I own).Read More »

October Ipsy 2016

This month Ipsy has delivered a perfect bag to my door step. Even the makeup bag itself is the cutest one I’ve received to date and when I opened it I was thrilled about everything I got this month.

Ciate London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner Pen ($19) – This is the first time I’ve tried a higher end eyeliner and WOW I’ve been missing out! I haven’t been super into using liquid liner lately but the pen I got is so high quality and easy to use, all it takes is a few swipes to take my look to the next level. I fully intend on buying this product as soon as the one I have dries out. Goodbye drugstore eyeliners! I just can’t do it anymore.

Review: Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme

I touched on Too Faced’s Lip Injection Extreme in my monthly Ipsy bag post but since I’m such a big fan of Too Faced I thought I’d go ahead and talk about it a little more now that I’ve been using the product for a couple more weeks.

The Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme is a lip glass that plumps your lips at the same time. From what I understand the lip gloss irritates the lips enough to get them to puff up a little bit, making them look a little bigger.Read More »

Inspiration Collages #2

It’s been almost 8 months since my last set of inspiration collages, and considering how much as gone on for me this summer I think it’s about time I get back in touch with my inner me and make a fresh set!

As you can tell, I’m still obsessed with pink and flowers but I’m started to be more attracted to deeper, more muted shades opposed to my usual pastels. I love love love makeup (and I’m loud and proud about it now that I’m about to go to school for it). Long brown hair, sweaters & dresses, and The Neighbourhood. The photo of Wiped Out! even shows the song with my favorite lyrics from the album:Read More »

Lightening Up My Look

It’s no secret that make up and beauty have become a pretty big hobby for me. I love trying to products and experimenting with new variations of my look. Usually when I working with my makeup I’m thinking of what else I can add to my routine and which productions I can buy. However, lately I’ve been taking a different approach. Instead of trying to add more to my daily makeup routine, I’m taking elements out of it.

I haven’t been using BB Cream over the past few weeks. I use a light powder on my face still, but not every day. At first I felt like I looked gross without BB Cream but honestly I look more like an actual human being. It only took a week for me to get used to not having BB Cream on and when I tried wearing it again for a day I felt like I looked weirder WITH it. I still like my light powder to get rid of some of the shininess on my face but I don’t feel the need to even out my color anymore.

Review: The Blushed Nudes Palette

With all of the eye shadow palettes out there it can be difficult to pick which one invest in, unless you’re flat broke, in which you don’t have much to choose from. I’d been eyeing the Naked 3 palette for a while but have never been able to afford it, but when Maybelline released their version of a blush palette I had to give it a shot.

At only $10 for the palette it really is affordable for anyone. It comes with a few sponge applicators but I picked up an Elf brush ($1 each) to be a little fancy. The palette comes with 12 shades of pinks, reds, and browns with both sparkly and matte options.
