My Plan for Weekly Reviews

My Plan for Weekly Reviews

I don’t know why I have such a hard time staying motivated to keep up with this blog. Recently I’ve had an idea and it has made me excited to start posting again. Every Saturday I am going to have a product review. Since I have been bad at posting I have a lot of products that I have bought but not posted about on here. Each week I want to pick a product in my collection and try to use it almost everyday that week so I can right a review about it.

One reason I thought of this idea is because I feel like I haven’t been using a lot of my makeup that I have. I will buy a new product, use it for about two weeks, and then not really use it again. So I want to start really getting into my products to see if I really like them. Also, focusing on that one product will allow me to really observe how that product performs.

Thinking of doing this has made me very excited to start posting again, even if it is just a basic review post. I’m going to figure out how I want to structure the posts. So for this first week I am going to focus on the Wet n’ Wild highlighting palette because I just bought it yesterday. So stay tuned for next Saturday for the my first weekly review.

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.

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser-  I told the lady at Sephora that I needed a new cleanser that wasn’t super expensive and she immediately ran over to this. The full-size bottle is $30 but I bought this travel size for $10. This cleanser has a gel consistency which I love and it warms up once you start rubbing it on your face. So far I am loving it and I think I am going to end up buying the full size. You can check it out here.

Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara- This was an impulse buy in the Ulta check-out lane but I ended up loving it. It curls my lashes and keeps them curled throughout the day. This is $8 at Ulta.

NYX Duochromatic highlighters- I have the shades snow rose and twilight tint. Snow rose has a pinky shift and twilight tint has a blue shift. I have been wanting to try some funky colored highlighters and I have loved these. I think next I want to get the Kat Von D alchemist palette. If you want to check out these NYX highlighters you can click here.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Detox Scrub- This smells so good! To me, it honestly smells like Coca-Cola. I also think this scrub has been helping my body acne. I bought this at Target.

Super Cola Candy- These are kind of like a warhead. They start off sour but then it’s a sweet cola candy. I have been eating these so much. I found them at world market.

Song of the month- Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato

Show of the month- Handmaid’s tale

Sephora and Ulta Birthday Gifts| 2017

Sephora and Ulta Birthday Gifts| 2017

Hello! I recently switched my posting to schedule to Sundays but yesterday was my birthday. I decided to just relax and post today instead. Since yesterday was my birthday I got my birthday goodies from Sephora and Ulta. For Ulta’s gifts, each quarter gets a different gift. For July, August, and September the gift is a NYX birthday palette. I heard a rumor that the last quarter also gets the palette but don’t take my word for it. I was really excited for this palette because I think this is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received from Ulta. The first two-quarters kind of got gypped. The first quarter got a sample size of the porefessional. Which is cool but I feel like everyone has received a sample of that at this point. The second quarter got a sample size mascara. With Sephora, everyone has the opportunity to receive the same gift. There’s a choice between a makeup gift and a skin care gift. I chose the makeup gift.

The Sephora gift is a Tarte makeup set. I haven’t tried either of these products so I was really excited to try them out. The Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in the shade paaarty. The Tarteist creamy matte lip paint is in the shade birthday suit. I love both of the shades and both of the products. The blush does actually last a long time and so does the lipstick. The lipstick is also very comfortable. Now onto the palette.

For the most part, I really enjoy this palette. It has pretty good pigmentation. The lighter shades don’t show up that well. The blend-ability is good also. I like the shades that they chose and the green color is different than any other greens in my collection. I’m really excited to see what different looks I can create with this palette.

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Quad

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Quad

Hello, everybody! I hope you all are having a fabulous week so far! I’ve been on vacation this week so I’ve just been relaxing. The other day I took a trip to Sephora to get my birthday gift and picked up a few things as well. I picked up one of the Kat Von D eyeshadow quads because they’re only $22. They come in 3 colors: plum, rust, and sage. I just bought the warm neutrals palette from NYX and I have a couple green colors, so I decided to get plum. There aren’t really any purple shades in my collection so this is a good edition. I think eventually I would love to get the other two. These palettes are great for travel. You can get a couple of simple looks out of the palette.  Another thing I love is the packaging. Kat Von D always has great packaging. I’ll show you some pictures and give you my pros and cons on the palette.

20170719_193610 (1)

Pros:

-Pigmentation is great

-easy to blend

-can get a couple looks

-small packaging

-base color can be used as a blush

Cons:

– the two dark colors can sometimes look the same once blended out

-highlight shade doesn’t really show up on my skin tone that well

Mid-2017 Empties

Mid-2017 Empties

20170620_112236.jpg

Suave Moroccan Infusion Color Safe Shampoo

-It seemed to work fine for my colored hair. But I wanted it to make my hair softer and it didn’t. I would not repurchase

Harry’s Razors

-I saw these at Target and I fell in love with the packaging. Also, you can buy 4 razor blade refills for only $8. With my Venus razors I can pay like $15 for 3. So far I like the razors but I feel like the rust easy so I remove them from the shower each time. I already have repurchased.

OGX Sea Mineral Moisture Conditioner

– It kind of made my hair drier. Would not repurchase

Crest 2 Step whitening system

– I didn’t really notice a difference and just seemed like a hassle with the two parts. Would not repurchase.

Lush Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask

-I really enjoyed this face mask. I like the way it made my face feel and I liked the exfoliant in it. I would repurchase.

Covergirl Tru Blend Primer for Combo Skin

-This didn’t really seem to work as a primer. It was just kind of a moisturizer. I did repurchase because they were on sale at Ulta. I thought I would give it another go.

Pam Coconut Cooking Oil

-I was so happy to see this in the store. It’s great that there is now coconut oil spray instead of the other oils. I did repurchase.

Pixi Glow Tonic

– There was not much of a difference in my skin with this. I also didn’t feel like $15 was worth it for this bottle. I would not repurchase.

E.L.F. Blemish Control Face Primer

-This did not help my blemishes and for some reason my makeup did not sit well on top of it.

Victoria Secret Bombshell Perfume

-I actually really enjoyed this scent. I would repurchase.

Lush Ocean Salt Body Scrub

-This is my absolute favorite thing from Lush. I love the smell of it and it does make my skin feel good. I can’t use this on my face because it’s a little too rough for me. I would repurchase.

The Balm Mad Lash Mascara

-I really liked this mascara. I have tried a high-end mascara that I liked enough to actually spend the money on but I would repurchase this.

Tarte Maracuja Oil

-I did enjoy this oil and I got another on in an ipsy. I don’t think I would repurchase because it’s a little pricey for me right now. I think I’m going to try some other oils first.

Essence Make Me Brow

-This is so great for getting brows done fast. I would repurchase.

Essence No Redness Color Correcting Concealer

-This did cover up my redness well but moved around once I put foundation on. I would not repurchase.

NYX Matte Liquid Liner

-This was a pretty good liner. I found it hard to control though. I might repurchase.

Maycoop Raw Sauce

-I still have no idea what this is supposed to do. I can honestly say that I did notice a difference in my skin when I used it. My skin looked healthier.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

-This concealer disappointed me. It concealed but not that great. It also creased really bad. I’m glad I just purchased a travel size and not a full size. I would not repurchase.

Benefit Porefessional Primer

-I enjoyed this primer. My makeup sat well on top of it and it did actually help my pores look smaller. I would repurchase.

Trust Fund Beauty Gimme Good Face primer

-I did not like this primer. It made my face feel slippery and gross. I would not repurchase.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Lipgloss

Too Faced Sweet Peach Lipgloss

Hello, Everybody! I’m pretty late to this sweet peach party but figured I would give my opinion on the lipglosses anyway. I decided to buy two colors. I bought pure peach and papa don’t peach. Pure peach is the kind of color you think of when you think of peach. Papa don’t peach is more of a nude peach. These glosses are infused with peach oil, coconut oil, and vitamins. They are meant to be really hydrating on the lips. I haven’t noticed a hydrating factor so much. I like that these glosses are not really sticky and once they set down they are not sticky at all. I also really like how pigmented they are. It’s not just a boring, barely there color. I think these are great lipglosses and totally worth the money. The monotone packaging is so satisfying to me for some reason. I would like to eventually own all the colors. I bought these at Sephora for $19. Let me know if you guys have tried these and what colors you like! Sorry this is a short post but I don’t know what more to say about them.
