Lipstick Love

Hi everyone!!

I recently picked up a few lipsticks and I thought y'all might like to see what I picked up.



Maybelline Color Sensational The Matte Lip Color

Touch Of Spice


Terracotta color. 

I love this lipstick. When you first put it on you're like WOW. Most matte lipsticks are dry and hard but not this one. Its very creamy and soft. It also has amazing pigmentation.


Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick

Tower Of Mauve 

Mauve brown color with a slight shine.

This lipstick also highly impressed me. I put this on and my lips felt incredible. I like how light and comfortable this felt on the lips. It also has great pigmentation. 


Jordana Matte Lipsticks

Top: Lavender Lady
Bottom: Blushed  

Top: Light lavender color.
Bottom: Soft pink color.

These lipsticks are great. They are a bit drying but I apply a balm before I wear them and I have no trouble at all. The pigmentation is pretty good for inexpensive 2 buck lipsticks. 

Let me know what some of your lipstick loves are right now!!

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

LA Colors Cover Up Sticks and 3D Blush Contour Palettes.

Hi loves!!

I was in a drug store in Lubbock TX. LOL That sounds like a country song ha ha ha. Anyway I was driving home to Albuquerque NM and I went through Lubbock TX and I stopped at a huge drug store that carries a lot of neat stuff. I spotted these and I was like Yessss!! I've been wanting to try this stuff for awhile.

LA Colors Cover Up Stick.
Top: Bright 
Bottom: Champagne

I used these under my eyes and I hated them. The colors are great but I just did not like them. They where hard to blend and creased like crazy. I mean they went into every nook an cranny. I looked like I was 100 years old. I tried different ways of applying them and still they creased. 


LA Colors 3D Blush Contour Palette

Top: Crush
Bottom: Sugar Plum

Ok so these little palettes are fabulous. They give you everything you need to contour, blush and highlight in one palette. They coordinate so well and have great pigmentation. They blend smoothly and last all day. When I say they last all day I mean all day. I apply in the morning and when I'm going to remove my makeup at night my blush is still vivid and has not faded at all. Even my more expensive blushes fade through out the day. I absolutely adore these. 

Has anyone tried these yet? Let me know what you think!!

Milani Limited Edition Bedazzled Eyeliner and Lipstick

Hi lovely readers! I hope everyone is doing good!!

Sometimes its really hard not to buy new makeup. You tell yourself no you have to much makeup and then you don't listen to your self and buy it anyways. I told my self you don't need anything from the new Milani collection and did I listen No.

I mean really how could I say no.

Constellation Gel Eye Liner 

Enchanted Lapis


I was really apprehensive to try this out. Not only because it has chunks of glitter on top but because every Milani eyeliner I have tried has always made my eyes burn. So I went ahead and got under the glitter over spray and into the eyeliner. To my surprise its super creamy. I then applied it and I was not happy. When you apply it and then go over the part that you first applied it just kind of rubs off the dry part. You have to kind of dot it on and not go over it. I was like what the heck then I saw that when I open my eyes it gets all over the top of my eyelid ugh. I finally got it to look ok and then yup you guessed it, it makes my eyes burn and water. I wanted this to work so bad I mean just look at it its beautiful. The packaging says you can use it for a cat eye or smudged for a smoldering look. I don't think I'm going to try the smoldering look since it irritates my eyes.



One of the lipsticks from the collection.

Enchanted Topaz


I love the Milani Color Statement Lipsticks sooo much. They are one of the best lipsticks out there. I thought this would kind of be like those lipsticks but oh was I wrong. First off this lipstick kind of tugs your lips when you apply it. Another bad thing is the texture. It feels so dry. The wear is a few hours and when it does wear off it makes my lips feel super dry. I do love the color though. 

All in all I was a bit disappointed with these. I knew I should not have gotten the eyeliner because of my experience with their eyeliners but the lipstick ugh why.  

So have y'all tried these out yet? Let me know how you liked them.

Maybelline The Smokes Palette

Howdy Y'all!!

I have been on a major hunt for this palette. I have searched high and low. It felt like I went to every store without any luck. I was in Walgreen's (like always) and saw that they had it. I was so happy I almost did a dance.

Great packaging. Its the same as The Nudes palette. 
Found at Walgreen's for around 12.00 dollars.

12 shades

Top Row

Bottom Row 

Like the other palette this one also surpassed my expectations. It actually has really good pigmentation. The shadows are also buttery soft and smooth. They also blend nicely and have great staying power. Where The Nudes is more warm toned this one is more cool toned. I love to wear more smoky eye makeup during fall and this will be perfect. 

Have any of y'all picked this up yet? Let me know what you think!

Wet N Wild Halloween 2014

Hi guys!!!

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. I always get so excited to see what new makeup collections come out. Of course Wet N Wild released a huge collection. They had a large display with lots of new stuff but I only picked out the things I liked.


5 Pan Limited Edition Palette 
Daring Downtown
When you first look at the palette you think WOW such pretty colors. Then you swatch it and your like ugh. They all look black with glitter to me. The dark blue and the dark purple do have a bit of color but for the most part they are black. 

 Mega Slicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Color
Top: Senorita
Bottom: 2 AM Call Time
Holy Cow!! I love these new shades. These Balm Stains are amazing so to have new colors is awesome. These two will be perfect this fall!! 

Mega Last Lipsticks
Top: Coming in Latte
Bottom: Rose to Fame 
I think these new shades are gorgeous. They are super wearable and perfect for the coming fall. 

Mega Rocks Glitter Nail Color
Rising Star
This polish is so sparkly. I love the gold and rose gold glitter. You have fine gold glitter and large rose gold chunks. The only thing I don't like is it took forever to dry.

Let me now what y'all are going to pick up from the new Halloween collection.

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Valentia Even Glow Serum Review


Hello everybody!!!

Through my wonderful association with Brand Backer I was sent by Valentia their Even Glow Serum to try out.
I had a few problems with shipping. I contacted them and they got back to me ASAP. They fixed everything and were so helpful and courteous. Love their customer service. 

Even Glow Serum 
Vitamin C 20%
Antioxidant Treatment 

Has a dropper.

Nice orange color.

Goes on clear.


Ingredients:
  • Vitamin C- Reduces sun damage. Helps strengthen and maintain skin. 
  • Organic Rosehip Seed Oil / Organic Sea buckthorn Oil- Protects skin from aging and improves youthfulness.
  • Resistem- Gives a natural glow and prompts skin detoxification.   
  • Hyaluronic Acid- Retains moisture and increases skin firmness and elasticity. 
  • Green Tea Extract- Is an anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant.
Claims:
  • Evens skin tone.
  • Increases glow & radiance.
  • Absorbs rapidly.
  • Boosts collagen production.
  • Reduces wrinkles & fine lines.  
I really don't like to put a lot of oil type products on my face. Its really sensitive and breaks out when I use new stuff. I was kind of iffy about this but I tried it anyway.
I first noticed it has a very lovely smell like fresh oranges. When I did apply it I noticed as soon as I put it on it sunk in pretty quickly. This stuff applies so light. Its doesn't feel heavy or sticky.
I have been using this once a day for a few weeks now and I have to say WOW! I didn't think it was going to work at all. My face is looking so much better. I think I even have a slight glow!!! I have always struggled with super huge pores and this has started to shrink them. No joke! It has also faded a lot of scares that I had. The best part is its alcohol free and paraben free and hasn't broke me out or irritated my skin whatsoever. I even have my husband using it and he also loves it. I give this a 10/10 and not just because I was sent this product but because it really works.

Elf Studio Cool Bronzer

Hi everyone!!!

As everyone knows I am a huge Elf Cosmetics junkie. One day I was at Target and spotted that Elf had a lot of new things that you could only get on line. One of the things I came upon was the Elf Studio Cool Bronzer. I have tried this product in another color but I didn't like it because it was really shimmery. I have large pores and shimmer makes them look bigger. I was really happy to have found this because its matte.


Oh man am I happy to have stumbled upon this. It is so wonderful. Not one shimmer or chunk of glitter. I love that you can have an intense contour or a light all over bronze. The staying power is excellent and lasted me all day without fading. This little inexpensive palette can give you such variety. I have been reaching for this a lot lately!! Love it!!

Let me know what your favorite Elf products are!

BH Cosmetics 6 Color Contour & Blush Palette


Hi beautiful internet friends!!

BH cosmetics is starting to be one of my favorite makeup companies. They have wonderful products for great prices. This palette is one that I have been wanting forever.
So one day I was in Urban Outfitters just killing some time and saw this. I was so happy. I wasn't even aware they carried makeup.



This palette has 6 large matte shades. 




The darkest for contouring and the lightest for highlighting. It also has two shades for blush. The darkest shade looks a bit scary but blends out very natural. The highlighting shades are really nice and subtle with no shimmer. I like to use the yellow shade to set my under eye concealer. The blushes I have to say are perfect. They give me the softest flush. The only thing bad I have to say is the formula is a bit dry and powdery. Even though they feel kind of powdery they have great pigmentation. For 13 bucks this palette is flipping amazing!!!!

L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint


Howdy everyone!!

Today I bring y'all a look at some of the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints. I know they are old news but I thought y'all might like my thought on them. 

Hot Mess
Bombshell
Coy

I'm wearing Hot Mess

The first thing I have to say about these is that they are really really really pigmented. The first time I wore one I made the mistake of applying it directly to my lips from the tube. My lips were covered. I now know that you only need a tiny bit and that it is better to apply with a brush. Other than that these are insanely amazing. Another thing I like is the smell. Its a very pleasant minty smell. 
They have since released new colors and of course I am going to get my hands on them.

Let me know which colors y'all love.

Makeup look using Milani Bella Eyes Shadow


Good day everyone!!

I just wanted to share a look I did using the Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow. 

Bella Caffe
Bella Teal 



I have to say that I am so in love with these new eyeshadows. They are super creamy and very pigmented. I think the packaging is cute and the shape of the shadow it self is very unique. The only con is I wish I would have picked up more. You can bet that I'm going to pick up some more of these. 

Let me know which other ones I need to pick up.

Thank you and until next time!!

Maybelline Great Lash Doll Mania Mascara


Hi my lovely readers!! 

We all know I have very sad lashes and mascara is a must for me. When a new one comes out I'm all over it. 
Maybelline is one of my all time favorite mascara brands so when they came out with the Doll Mania I had to buy a tube. L'oreal also came out with a mascara that is suppose to give you doll like lashes and I love it. 

Color in Blackest Black 


Claims:
  • Great curved brush lifts and curls lashes for doll eye look.
  • Lash lifting formula holds lashes in place.



Pros:
  • Great length and volume.
  • Does not flake or smudge.
  • Washes off easily.
Cons:
  • Formula a little dry.

I have to say I like it not as much as the L'oreal one but its really good. I think I will wear this when I want a nice natural looking lash.

Let me know what your favorite mascara is.
