Smashbox On The Rocks Palette + Video


Hello everyone!! I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas!! I know I sure did even though I had to drive a lot. It was totally worth it.
Any who before I went out of town I went into Sephora and spotted the Smashbox On The Rocks Palette for 18 buck. I about fainted because I was eyeing this palette and to be able to get it for such a deal was icing on the cake. 

Regular $36 I got it for $18!!!

Gorgeous packaging!!

12 shadows 


Swatched with no primer!!

I love all the shades!! They are amazingly pigmented and super soft. The only thing I don't like is these shadows have a ton of fallout. You have to remember to tap off the excess but other than that its pretty darn perfect. 



Thank you for reading and until next time!!!

Flower Eye-See-You Eye Beauty Set


Howdy Guys!!! 

Don't you just hate when you get on Instagram and see something and you think "oh my I have to get my hands on that" Well I do that all the time but when I saw this I knew I had to do whatever it took to get this set.

I love the packaging!! Rose gold heck yes!
I found this at Walmart with the gift sets for $19.98.
I am not sure if they still have this since it was a Holiday set. If they do it may be on clearance. But again I am not totally sure.

From back of box;
"Eye Spy... The essential eye palette! Featuring 8 shimmery, fully pigmented eyeshadow shades with a bonus Ultimate Eyeshadow Brush & Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara. Sparkle and Shine during the holiday times!"
  
What you get:
8 Shadow Play Eyeshadow Shades
1 Ultimate Eyeshadow Brush 
I Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara 

8 Shadow Play Eyeshadow Shades

No primer used to swatch. 

Ok this palette is amazing. I love every single shade and the pigmentation is phenomenal. They are perfect for any occasion. The shadows themselves are buttery smooth and blend like a dream. The packaging is beautiful and so posh. The only thing I don't like is that the palette has no mirror and that it does not open flat. Other than that I love it.
The brush that the set comes with is fantastic. It is so super soft and blends your shadows with little to no effort. It feels like a very expensive brush not one you bought in a set at Walmart. Its my new favorite brush.  

Mascara wand. 
Love the shape and the bristles. Makes it very easy to get into every lash from root to tip. I also really like the packaging of the mascara tube.

I used the palette for this look.
No mascara

With mascara 

I have to say I am blown away by this set. I have used a few things from Flower Beauty but not many. You better believe I am going to try a lot more. 
  
Let me know what you favorite Flower Beauty products are!!

NYC Individual Eyes in Union Station


Greetings and Happy Holidays!!

I have seen this palette many a time when I go to the story but it never tickled my fancy. Until I read a blog review and thought I had to try it. I have tried one these palettes from NYC before a Halloween one from last year and it was ok. So I was curious about this one. 

4 shadows and 2 cream products

Union Square



Look I came up with

This palette has two cream products a primer and an illuminator. I don't use them but they are nice to have. As for the shadows they are very soft and pigmented. I can't believe I haven't tried them before. I love the colors and everything about this palette. 

What are your favorite NYC products?

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Profusion 12 Pan Palette Swatches

Hi everyone!!

I love Profusion shadows. I reviewed some last year and loved them. HERE This year I found the 12 pan palettes and no doubt about it they found their way in my cart. Of course it helped that they only cost 1 buck each. YES!! 1 DOLLAR!!

Walgreens 
$1.00  

Natural

Smokey

Shimmer 

Berry

These are nice especially for one dollar but they didn't live up to the ones from last year. The ones from last year were a little bit more pigmented and vivid these had color just not enough. I will use them but I don't know I still love the others. 

Thank you all for reading and until next time!!

You get 6 products and a gorgeous makeup bag.  

1. All About Eyes Eye Cream
2. Quickliner For Eyes Intense Eye Liner in Intense Sable
3. A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skin in Cinnamon Swirl 
4. High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara in Extreme Back

I loved this set so much. Hope y'all enjoyed the look!!

NYX Chunky Dunk Lippie Set

Howdy folks!!

Ever since NYX released the Chunky Dunk lip crayons I've really wanted to try them but for some reason I haven't. Any who I was in Ulta one afternoon feeding my makeup addiction when I saw this set. I was like yessss this a awesome.

You get 4 in the set.
Set is regularly 14.99 and it on sale for 11.99 at Ulta 


1. Pink Bikini 
2. Cherry Smash 
3. Hibiscus Tea Punch
4. Caramel Martini


1. Pink Bikini 

2. Cherry Smash 

3. Hibiscus Tea Punch

4. Caramel Martini

I have to say that I really like these. You don't have to sharpener them and they do not have any scent or flavor. They also go on super smooth and have great pigmentation. Nothing crazy but a nice color pay off for being so sheer and lightweight. I also like how moisturizing they feel on the lips which is perfect for me since I have extremely dry lips. The staying power is ok nothing really long wearing its ok because I can just reapply since they feel so good on the lips.

Have you tried these? Let me know your favorite colors.

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Old Factory Happy Holidays Candle Set Review



Hello everyone and Happy Holidays!!

I was given the opportunity to review a set of candles from Old Factory Candles and I was super excited. I have a slight obsession with candles so I jumped on this.  

"These Natural Soy Candles Are Hand Poured In The USA" 
I like that that they are hand poured and made right here in the the good old U S of A.
It makes me think that they are very careful and proud of this product.

You get three 2oz candles in a glass jar with a twist on lid in one box.
I absolutely love the packaging its so flipping cute!!

They have a few different sets but I picked out the 
Happy Holidays Set since Christmas is just around the corner.

I love each scent. They smell wonderful and true to their name. They burn really nice and give the best smell. 
I like that you can give these away as a set or break it up to have three separate gifts. 

These are an excellent addition to my candle collection and I will definitely purchase more sets.
