LORAC Pro Palette 2

Hi ladies and gents!!

I'm pretty sure everyone has already seen this palette. I have had it for a while now but I'm just getting around to posting about it. My life has been a bit crazy and I'm a little late with posting stuff. Anyway I hope y'all like my post.

I am a big LORAC junkie. I love a lot of their wonderful products especially their eyeshadows. The first Pro Palette has a special place in my heart so when I saw they were coming out with a second one I was over the moon.

It comes with a mini eye primer.
$42.00 at Ulta

I love this grey packaging. Its so posh. 

16 shades
 I look at this palette and think fall I don't know I guess its the dark shadows but its ok I love fall!! 

Top row all matte.

Bottom row all shimmer.

I just can't believe how highly pigmented all the shadows are. I like to use the darker shadows for eyeliner. I will do a light look and use it along the lashes. Its brilliant for that. The shadows are also creamy smooth and easy to blend. I have nothing bad to say about this. Each and every color is perfect. The possibilities are endless with this. This palette is so different from the first but it compliments it so well.   


Have you guys picked this up yet? Let me know what you think.

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

L'oreal Miss Manga Mascara Quick Review

Hello everyone!! I hope y'all had an amazing weekend.

When this mascara first came out I had no intention in trying it out. I haven't had the best of luck with L'oreal mascaras in general so I was like whatever about this mascara. Until one of my friends on Instagram mentioned that she liked this and I thought what the heck. 

Color in Blackest Black 



Pros:
  • Flexible brush.
  • Brush coats every lash.
  • Gives amazing length and volume.
  • Doesn't clump.
  • Doesn't flake or smudge.
  • Lasts all day.
  • Easy to wash off.
Cons:
NOT ONE!!

Ok I have to say that this is my favorite mascara right now. I love everything about this. From the cute packaging to the wonderful formula. I am so happy I took the leap with this amazing mascara. If you guys haven't tried this out yet I really recommend it. 

Thank you for reading this quickie review and until nex time!! Hugs and Kisses!!

Maybelline The Nudes Palette

Hola everyone!! 

Don't you just love when people post about something and your like OMG I must find this now. Well as soon as I saw someone post about this I went on hunt mode. I went to every store. One day I went into Target to get a few things and I just had to pop into the makeup department. I wasn't even thinking I would find this at Target. I was ecstatic.

I love the packaging its very sleek and nice.
10 bucks at Target 

12 shades 

Top Row 

Bottom Row

Ok guys to tell you the truth I didn't think much of this palette. I just wanted it to have for my collection. Then I swatched it and was pleasantly surprised how much pigmentation these shadows have. I then used it and knew this was something special. The eyeshadows are so soft and smooth. They blend easily and feel like a much more expensive palette than it is. I got all day wear with these shadows. I did use a primer but just a little bit. I have to say that I am in love with these palette and have to recommend it as a summer must have. 

So have you guys picked this up yet? Let me know what you think.

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Quick Review: Too Faced Shadow Insurance


Hi gals and guys!! Today I have a quick little review for you all.
 I always use an eye primer when I do my makeup and I have been wanting to try this forever.

The claims:
Intensifies shadow color
24-hour wear
Waterproof 
Crease-proof
Fade-proof
Colorless Formula     

Squeeze tube 

Love the tip

Skin color 


I love how well this stuff blends in. It does make my eyeshadows look a bit brighter but after about 5 minutes my eyes started watering like crazy. I was like what the heck and then thought nothing of it because I have allergies. Anyway my eyes started to burn and hurt. I could not for the life of me figure out why. I had taken an allergy pill I had used everything I always had excepted for the primer. I tried it once more and the same stuff happened again. So yes its safe to say I hate this stuff. My eyeballs hate this stuff. I don't even know if this helps shadows last 24+ hours because my eyes watered so much and I kept wiping them. Ugh why I wanted this to work for me since everyone loves it.

Have you guys tried this stuff? Let me know what you favorite eye primer is.

Thank you for reading and until next time!

Hello how is everyone doing? Good I hope!!!
Anyhow I know theses are old news but I thought I would post a quick look at them anyway. 

Purchased both at Walgreen's 
Elf came out with a beautiful Ariel palette and Ardell put some of their fabulous lashes in stunning Ariel packaging. Of course I had to buy them I am a huge Little Mermaid fan. 

Isn't it just gorgeous!! Sigh!  

These lashes are marvelous. I am a huge Ardell lash lover. You get two pair yes two pair and a tiny baby glue.

Ugh I just love the cover of this palette. The drawing is so pretty. 

When you first open up the Beauty Book you have a mirror.

When open the flap. It gives you two different how to looks.   

This Beauty Book has 9 eyshadows, 2 bronzers, 2 brushes and a lip gloss.

All the shades swatched without primer.
Such lovely colors and look at that pigmentation.

Color in Pink. So cute I love Elf glosses.

And oh yeah like this little Beauty Book didn't have enough they have two bronzers. We all know I love bronzer so I'm pretty excited about these I mean come on just look at them. They are delightful!!

So did any of y'all pick these up? If so let me know what you think!!

My top 3 BB Creams of the Summer!!


Howdy Y'all and Happy 4th!!

This summer has been really hot. With the weather so gross I really don't like wearing a lot of heavy makeup on my face. I've tried some of the new drugstore BB Creams and I have to say I love them.

Coming in at number 3 I have to go with Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream.
Medium/Deep

I picked up this BB cream because I was having a really bad breakout and this has a 2% Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment. I was hoping it would help with my zits. It also says its an 8-in-1 skin perfeector.
1. Clears acne
2. Conceals imperfections
3. Minimizes the look of pores
4. Reduces the appearance of redness
5. Adjusts to skin tone
6. Hydrates and smoothes
7. Enhances and clarifies
8. 0% oils and lightweight feel
  
I used this one day and I loved how easily it went on. It blended beautifully into the skin without feeling heavy or sticky. It also matches really well with my skin tone. The coverage is light to medium and you can still see some imperfections. The wear is good but by the end of the day you look a little oily. The best part the next morning I got up and my face looked better. So happy! 



Coming in at number 2 is the NYC BB Creme. 
Medium 

I saw this all over Instagram and had to try it out for my self. This claims to be a 5-in-1 skin perfector. 
1. Helps protect skin
2. Pore minimizer
3. Erase skin imperfections, minimize fine lines
4. Smooths skin
5. Brightens skin for a luminous and natural looking makeup

I really like the feel of this on my face. I put it on and my face looked amazing. It has a medium coverage but you can build it up a little. I didn't think this was going to match my face but the color is actually pretty darn close. You can still see some imperfections but it gives your face a beautiful finish that really does give you a natural looking makeup look. It has great wear through out the day and holds up well in the heat. I love this stuff!



For my number 1 choice it has to be Rimmel Matte BB Cream
Medium

I didn't like the regular Rimmel BB Cream because it made my face look like a huge oily mess. This one says "MATTE" so of course I had to see if it held up. This one is a 9-in-1 skin perfecting super makeup. 
1. Minimizes the appearance of pores
2. Evens skin tone
3. Mattifies 
4. Controls shine all day
5. Smoothes 
6. Soothes 
7. Conceals dark circles
8. Helps prevent blemishes
9. Gives all day coverage

First off this formula is a bit thicker than the others and it has a medium to full coverage finish. However even though it is thicker it feels very light on the skin almost like you not wearing anything. The color is even great. This does a wonderful job of hiding all your imperfections. When they say "MATTE" they mean it. I can put this on early in the morning and at night when I am ready to take it off my face still looks amazing and shine free. This is also the only one of the three that has SPF. Its only 15 SPF but at least it has it.

Let me know what some of your favorite BB Creams are!!
