Weekly Review|Wet N Wild Megaglo Palette

Weekly Review|Wet N Wild Megaglo Palette

Wow, I’ve already messed up this new post that I was so excited about. I was going to post on Saturday but this weekend got a little busy. Anyway, this last week I tested out the Wet N Wild Megaglo highlighting palette. This palette came out sometime last year but I honestly hadn’t seen it in stores ever. I found it in Ulta last week. Wet N Wild highlighters are not something that I have ever tried before so I thought this might be a good start. However, after buying it, I’ve read some reviews that say these aren’t as good as their singles. So I might have to try those as well. I tend to enjoy the colored highlight trend. I think, as long as the color is not too overwhelming, that it can look really pretty and fun. I think that I’m going to break these reviews into 3 sections. First, I will talk about the packaging. Packaging is definitely not the most important thing, but it is something that is important to me. Second, will be how it applies. Third, will be how it wears throughout the day.

Packaging

I’m not the biggest fan on the packaging of this. It definitely is not great quality. However, Wet N Wild is a very affordable brand. So I think when products don’t cost as much then the packaging can lack a little. This palette is $15 so I do think they could have done a little better on the packaging for the price. E.L.F has $10 palettes that are in a better quality packaging.

The Application

This palette comes with 4 highlight colors; sweet peony (rose gold), wild cosmos (green), diamond lily (blue), and blushing azalea (pink). The most wearable are sweet peony and blushing azalea. I think those both look very nice on the skin. Wild cosmos is a little less wearable. I like colored highlights when the color is a little more subtle. I found that the green on my skin was just a little too noticeable. Diamond lily for me was in that more subtle colored highlight category. I think that I would be able to wear diamond lily more often than wild cosmos. All of the highlights are pretty glittery. I feel like most people do not like glittery highlights. I prefer non-glittery highlights but I have found some glittery ones that I’ve liked before.

Longevity

All of these colors lasted throughout the day. I even took a nap on a couple of days and the highlight would still be there afterwards. I found that the glitter would tend to rub off on other things though.

My Final Thoughts

I think this a palette that I could live without. It’s not the best quality and there are other colored highlights that are better. Also, since other people have said that the singles are better, I would just stick with trying those.  I think that I’m going to give this palette 3 out of 5 stars.

I’m Trying Project Pan

I’m Trying Project Pan

Hi, Guys! Recently I have become obsessed with a YouTuber named Lauren Mae Beauty. Every day I watch her videos and she has a project pan series. She has called her project pan, “Finish 18 in 2018”. Watching this video inspired me to pick some products that I want to finish up. I went through my makeup and chose some items to try to finish up. I surprisingly chose more than I thought I would. I picked out 14 products, and I picked out a few from each category. So I am going to attempt to update you guys each month on my progress. I want to see how many of these products that I can finish by the end of the year. I think the lip products are going to be the hardest to use up. At the end of the year, I am going to get rid of these lip products even if they aren’t all the way used up. I chose some lip products that I’ve had for a long time but I want to use as much as possible before getting rid of them.

20180422_194130.jpg I’ve broken the products up into a couple of products per picture so that way it’s easier to see them. I’ll just go through each product in each picture.

-Too Face Chocolate Soleil bronzer- This is a sample size I got at Ulta.

-Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Paaarty- This was part of the Sephora birthday gift last year.

-The Balm Hot Mama Blush- I actually got 2 of these in one of my ipsy bags a long time ago. I feel like these won’t take long to go through.

 

20180422_194302.jpg-Wet n wild megaglo contouring palette- I love this thing and am planning on repurchasing this when I finish it.

-E.L.F HD powder in soft luminance- I’ve had this powder for a while and it seems to be almost done.

-Trestique mini highlight stick in Maldives luminescent- I got this as a sample in an ipsy bag. You cant see it too well in this picture but the amount is really low.

 

 

 

20180422_200409.jpg-Maybelline Fit Me stick foundation- I want to find a stick foundation that I like because I think they’re really good for on the go. I don’t know if I really like this one quite yet.

-L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow foundation- I honestly love all the foundations in the infallible range. I’m just almost done with this one and will be repurchasing.

-Maybelline Fit Me Concealer- I really like this one and I’m almost done with it

-Wet n Wild Photofocus concealer- I think this concealer is just ok. I don’t think I’ll repurchase.

 

20180422_200605.jpg-Marc Jacobs lip creme in kiss kiss bang bang- This was part of the Sephora gift 2 years ago and I just want to use it up.

-NYX matte lipstick in perfect red- I have had this lipstick for so long! I just want to use up as much as possible before getting rid of it.

-Revlon Matte Balm in sultry- This is one of my favorite lip colors/products. I have had it for a while and I want to repurchase it but also use up as much of this one.

-Revlon Balm in Smitten- This is like the other one but not a matte finish.

Target Has Beauty Boxes In Store!

Target Has Beauty Boxes In Store!

Hello, everybody! I hope you all have had an amazing last couple of months. I’ve been busy with school so I disappeared for a bit like usual. Every semester I say that I will continue to post regularly, and every semester I tend to get a little too busy. Luckily I am back now and have had a few posts building up. Today I am going to talk about the new beauty boxes at Target! Target has had a monthly beauty box online for a while but now they have them in store as well. I don’t know if this is going to be a monthly thing or just a one-time thing. I hope that it sticks and they put new boxes out every month. They had 4 different boxes to choose from. Each one had a different name and seemed to have a different theme of products. I chose two different boxes, The wakeup and makeup box and the all the masks box. It does tell you one the back which products come in the box. I looked at the makeup one but decided not to look at the masks one so that I would be surprised. If this becomes a permanent thing that they do, I am going to try not to look at the contents before I buy. Each box is $7, which I think is a pretty good price for the samples you get. I actually got a few full sized products in the boxes. Let’s go through the contents of each box.
Wakeup and Makeup Box:

20180408_112932.jpg– Dove Dry Spray deodorant (full size) So far I really like this deaodorant

-Dove Dry shampoo (travel size) I’m not a big fan of Dove’s dry shampoo but I’m gonna use it

-Sonia Kashuk brush cleaning wipe (1ct) I would consider buying a pack of these

-Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara (full size) It’s not a bad mascara but not my favorite

-Honest Beauty Makeup Wipes (15 ct) Can never go wrong with a makeup wipe

-E.L.F Blending Brush, I really like this for bronzer

-E.L.F Beautifully bare face pallete (full size) I did not like this but I’m going to give it to someone that might like it.

 

All the Masks Box (all full size, also I haven’t got to try all of these yet)

20180417_091402.jpg – Neutrogena Hydrating Gel Masl

-Yes to carrots and kale paper mask

-Masque Bar Luminizing charcoal peel off mask

-St. Ives soothing oatmeal mask

-Que Bella multi masking trio

NYX Ultimate Warm Neutrals

NYX Ultimate Warm Neutrals

Wow! It has been a couple months since I have posted on here. I got so busy with school starting and also going through a couple other changes. I was on a pretty good posting schedule and hope to get back to it. I want to talk about this palette that I bought a while ago. I bought one of the NYX ultimate palettes. They come in a couple different colors and I got the warm neutrals shade. Each palette is about $18. I want to get the other shades as well. Very affordable and very good quality. NYX has always been a brand that very rarely disappoints me. All of the products that I’ve tried so far seem to be pretty good. I’ll show you guys some swatches and then give you my overall thoughts.

All of the colors have pretty good pigmentation. I’m surprised at how well the light colors swatch also. Once applied the colors also blend pretty well. Sometimes they blend away a little too easy, but I think I would rather have that than not blend out at all. I also really like the color selection in the palette. I feel like I can get a lot of different looks with this. There is also a good balance between mattes and shimmers. I hate when palettes have almost no mattes. The packaging is also fairly small so you could travel with it if you wanted. I definitely recommend this palette. Go pick it up!

L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask| Exfoliating and Refining

L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask| Exfoliating and Refining

Hi, Everybody! I hope everyone had a wonderful week. Today I wanted to talk about a face mask that I have been enjoying. It is on of the L’Oreal pure-clay masks. I picked up the exfoliating and refining mask with red algae. Lately, I’ve been feeling like my skin has been on the dry side so I like the exfoliation. All the masks in this line are made with 3 different kinds of clay. It doesn’t really say anywhere what those clays are. I wish that they made it more obvious on the packaging somewhere of what the clays are. Each different mask is enhanced with something. The one I picked up is enhanced with red algae extract. They also have masks that are enhanced with charcoal and another one enhanced with eucalyptus. L’Oreal has only advertised these 3 in the line but I noticed on their website they have another one that’s blue. The blue one is enhanced with seaweed. I would like to get all of the masks in the line. Apparently, in the red one, the exfoliant is volcanic rock which is pretty cool.

L’Oreal Claims

-“addresses rough skin and deep clogged pores”

– “polished pore-minimized, smooth complexion”

-“refined and smooth skin”

-“imperfections are less visible”

What I’ve noticed

-love the packaging

-skin does look smooth and healthy

-does not help my acne or my pores

So I was a little disappointed that this didn’t do much in terms of cleaning out my pores. However, I do enjoy how healthy my skin looks after I use it. I definitely want to try the other masks and see how wells those work. To be honest I probably won’t buy this one again once it’s empty. I’m sure I can find a mask that makes my skin look and feel the same and also cleans out my pores. Let me know if you guys have had any experiences with these masks and what you feel. If you want to check out the line you can click here. Each mask is about $13. Thank you for hanging out with me and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Essence Soo Glow!

Essence Soo Glow!

I’ve just recently started getting really into highlighter and bronzer. I saw these two highlighters when I was in target and thought they looked really nice. They are called the Essence Soo Glow! cream to powder highlighter. Cream to powder products blow my mind every time. This highlighter comes in two shades. The first one is look on the bright side which is a champagne color. The other one is called bright up your life which is a pink rose color. I really enjoy these highlighters. If you are going to put powder on your face, you have to put these on before. These do not apply well on top of a powder. They don’t apply smoothly and the break apart. I think they can apply differently on different foundations also. Sometimes I like to apply these on bare skin if I don’t really feel like wearing makeup. I find the best way to apply them is just with my fingers. You can also really build these up if you like an intense glow. That’s really all there is to say about these. I totally recommend picking these up. They are only $3.50 at Target. Let me know if you have tried these before and what you think about them.

NYX Brooklyn Thorn

NYX Brooklyn Thorn

Not only am I obsessed with NYX but I’m also obsessed with lipstick. NYX is one of my favorite drug store brands. NYX has a line of liquid lip creams called liquid suedes. I decided one day to pick up the shade Brooklyn thorn. Brooklyn thorn is a browny, purple shade.  I love this color so much! Another great thing about this line is that they have matching lip liners with the same names. Not a lot of brands do that so I love that they have that option.

Having the lip liner is a really good idea for these because the applicator is kind of a weird one. It’s a big, flat, rounded brush. It’s very hard to get a clean line with the applicator. Honestly, I feel like if you wanted a really matte finish, you could just wear the lip liner. The lipstick does not dry down all the way. I like this because then it isn’t too drying on the lips. It has really great wear time but is not transfer proof. All in all, I would totally recommend buying this. Unfortunately, I feel like you can’t see the purple undertone in the picture. It mostly looks just brown. I want to get a bunch of colors and then do a post about them. Let me know if you guys have a favorite color in the collection that I can try.
