Tarte beMATTEnificent Colored Clay Palette Review


Hello all my beautiful readers!!

Thank you all for the kind words and inspiration from my last post!! I needed it!!

Today I bring you a look at the Tarte beMATTEnificent Palette.

Ordered this from Sephora on line for 36 bucks.

I love this packaging.
The purple and gold is so beautiful and classy.

It comes with a plastic shield with the names of the shadows and how you can use them. 
You get 8 shadows and a blush.
You also get a large mirror and a dual-ended brush.   


This is Tarte's first ever all matte palette. 
All shadows and blush are limited edition.

Recently I have really been into matte shadows. So when I saw this online I had to order it. I paid 36 bucks for this and I think it is a steal for all you get. The shadows and blush are so smooth and super pigmented. I love the array of shadows you get. You can come up with many looks from simple to something smokey and sexy. This palette would be perfect for travel or when your on the run. I my self would not travel with it because it is way to gorgeous to mess up. 
Another great thing about this exquisite palette is that its free of mineral oil, parabens, phthalates,and gluten. But the best thing its cruelty free.  
I am truly in love with this. I love everything about it.

Has anyone else tried this? If so what do you think?

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Rant !!


Hi Everyone and Thank You for reading!!

I really haven't been inspired to write lately. I had a bad experience at Sephora around Christmas and it has left me questioning my blogging and my YouTube channel. I have been asking my self why do I do this. The experience at Sephora left me thinking that people think way to highly of them selves. I love makeup and beauty but that's just it its MAKEUP and at night when we wash it of we are all the same. I also hate how they belittle people and think that they are performing rocket science again its MAKEUP and people should be able to wear it anyway they like. I don't know if I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill but it has left me wondering if I'm doing the right thing. I go into makeup stores and nobody ever wants to help.When they finally do help they treat me like I'm an idiot for not knowing something. I seldom tell anyone that I am a beauty blogger because when I do they think I'm stupid. This has happened to me several times and I'm pretty fed up. The people in the beauty industry should be there to help you feel better about your self. I know when someone that knows that I love makeup asks me for pointers I always give my opinion and then help them with whats best for them. Lets remember people beauty is only skin deep.


Has this happened to anyone else if so comment down below and tell me about it!!

Covergirl Bombshell Mascara


Hello everyone!!

Lately I have noticed my eyelashes looking rather pitiful. 
I had seen Covergirl recently came out with a new mascara and had to buy it with the hopes of it assisting my miserable lashes.  

Bombshell Volume 

Dual Ended 

Side 1 has a rubber brush and is for unbelievably big volume.
Then you put side 2 on top of side 1, with its regular mascara brush, for intensity and length. 

No mascara
Can't you see the despair!!

With mascara 

So I was hopping for an astonishing out come but what I got was kind of dreary. It gave me length but I wanted the big "Bombshell Volume".
The whole experience was kind of a let down. At first I thought the two step process would be kind of interesting but after I did it its kind of a hassle. Then the tube is large and bulky. Which I hate. Since it does have to brushes it makes the wands really short and awkward to use. Then the formula was a little to dry for my taste and made the mascara flak throughout the day. But the worst thing about this was when I got ready to remove the mascara at night I had the hardest time with it. It did not come off easy and the next morning after my shower I was still trying to scrub it off. Not a good thing.
I am sorry to say but this was a major fail for me. I love the color of the packaging and the idea is kind of cool but I don't see myself getting a lot of use from this. 

Have any of you guys tried it and if you have what do you think? I would love to know!

Thank you for reading and until next time!

Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour


Hi Gals and Guys. 

I don't know if ya'll know this or not but I am a huge chubby lip pencil junkie!! So when I saw that Wet n Wild was coming out with some I couldn't wait to get my hands on them.


I only bought 2 of them.

128
Pink Promise


Frosty light pink 




126
Rico Mauve


Mauve with a touch of pink 


Ok I am obsessed. These are great.  
They have a creamy texture and they glide on super smooth. They leave your lips feeling soft and moisturized. The pigmentation is amazing and all you need is a few swipes to get full on color. The staying power is pretty good lasting around 3 hours then you're left with a pleasant stain. What I really like is this lip stain has no smell or taste. I hate when I get a new product and I am super excited to try it and it has a an awful smell. Yuck!! Another great plus is you can hear the cap click when it is put on tightly. I love wearing these! I know I will wear them both a lot.   

Has anyone spotted them yet and if so have tried them out? If do let me know what you think.

Thank you so much for reading and until next time!!

Wet N Wild Coloricon 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in The Naked Truth


Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone!!

Wet N Wild has come out with a ton of new stuff for 2014. 


I saw all the new goodies and just picked up this one 5 pan palette. Two of the Balm Stains and the 8 pan palette that will be in a later post.

 The Naked Truth. 



I love everything about this palette.
 I love the new layout of the shadows. I think it makes it look more interesting . I love the color combination. Perfect for everyday use. The pigmentation is wonderful. I didn't even use primer to swatch!! The staying power is great. I applied early in the day and it still looked perfect late at night. Every color has a perfect texture which makes applying and blending very easy.




Has anyone else picked this up and if so let me know what you think.!!

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser


Hello Everyone! Its good to be back!!

It has been a busy but wonderful Holiday Season and I'm a little sad to see it go but all good things must come to an end. Anyway its time for me to get back to it. I have a ton of things to review and talk about. 
First thing I have for y'all is the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser.   

Love the cute packaging!!


 
Why I was interested:
  • Instantly blurs the look of pores, without clogging them.
  • Transparent gel formula, smooths on clear.
  • Smoothes and refines skin's appearance.
  • Non-comedogenic and fragrance-free.



I have extremely large pores and I'm always looking for something to make them look smaller. I really hate them. I have used many a product that claimed to make them appear smaller. 

Without 

With 

I love that its clear and leaves no residue when applied. I don't really like to use clear silicon type primers because they always tend to break me out. I am happy to say this one did not. One thing that is a little weird is that it leaves your hands feeling greasy but not your face. Which is ok with me I can just wash my hands. I also love that you can use it under foundation or alone for days you don't want to use makeup. I like to put it on before my foundation and it keeps my makeup lasting longer then if I don't use anything.
The greatest thing is the price I paid less then 7 bucks at CVS. That's amazing for how much product you get and what it does. 
I am loving this stuff!!

Has anyone tried it and what do you think?

Thank you for reading and until next time!!
