Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette

Oct/02/2018

I had been on the fence for a while on whether I should get this palette or not. After watching video after video and thinking about it I decided to take the plunge and get it. I'm attaching a 3 minute halo eye tutorial I did with this palette so you can see the shades in action.

The shades practically blend themselves and are super duper soft and buttery which leads to my next point... There is a TON of kickback from a couple of the shades. Burnt Orange and Sienna, I'm talkin about you. Even when I just barely tapped my brush I still got a lot of kick back. The foils/metallics are beautiful, but they perform best with a finger rather than a brush. Overall I like the palette, but the shades are a bit soft.
The price is a bit expensive for the amount …

Palettes - MILANI - Most Loved Mattes Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/14/2018

I picked up this palette the other day at Walmart and tried it out today. (It was only $15 compared to $20 on Milani's site) The shadows are so pigmented!!! A little bit really goes a long way with these. I don't like wearing shimmers on my eyes all the time, so this palette is a must have for those that like mattes. I did a video using the shades which I will link below. There's a row of brown neutral shades, a row of cool-toned purple/plum shades, and a row of warm orangey shades. I love how they broke up the 12 shades into 3 easy to do looks. I highly recommend it!

I love love love this palette!!! My reasons will be listed below-

Packaging- The eyeshadows are housed in a gorgeous plastic case with a large mirror. The palette feels heavy and luxurious in the hand.

Shade Range- While this is a neutral palette, there are a lot of shades and combos you could do. You could use the shades for an everyday look, or smoke out your eyes for a …

Concealers - Pixi - Correction Concentrate - Brightening Peach

May/04/2018

I'm currently trying to use up this Concentrate. I've had this particular jar for like, 4 years. I know, I know... it's old, but I can't justify throwing it out if it still works and doesn't smell. It's okay... It creases in my fine lines and wipes away easily if I touch my undereyes- even if I set it with translucent powder. I still haven't found a concealer …Read more

This beautiful lipstick has been sitting untried for a long time now and I decided to pull it out for the spring/summer weather. It is SO gorgeous and very moisturizing! It is sheer so don't be afraid of how it looks in the bullet. I attached a photo so you can see that it's a pretty pinky coral shade. It's affordable, pretty, and moisturizing... What's not to love?

Primer/ Corrector - Physicians Formula - Spotlight Illuminating Primer

Apr/10/2018

I watched a lot of Youtube videos and read lots of reviews before getting this primer. First a little bit about my skin- I have combo skin... Dry under my eyes and in the areas that's not in my t-zone, and oily in my t-zone and my pores are large. I was very afraid that this primer would look terrible with my skin but that's not the case! When you first apply it, it looks glittery like crazy... very dewy. But once you get your foundation on it looks a ton better. My foundation lasts all day with it, and by the end of the day when my oils have broken through it looks very natural. I personally didn't notice a scent at all. The packaging is super luxe and nice. My only gripe is the price is a bit steep for drugstore. I did a quick review/swatch of it on my …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Wanderlust

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2015

So, after seeing gorgeous swatches of the new China Glaze 2015 Road Trip polishes, I knew Wanderlust HAD to be in my Life! It definitely didn't disappoint! It's a pale pink polish with pink/gold microshimmers that are most visible in sunlight. If I ran out of this I would definitely repurchase! I'm such a sucker for light shimmer polishes.

I first saw this polish when someone posted a picture up of it on Reddit Lacqueristas. As soon as I saw the picture I rushed to a few Walgreens just to pick up this specific polish. You won't be disappointed with this! It's absolutely stunning. It's almost like a lilac polish and under the store lighting looks meh.. but as soon as you put it on your nails, it transforms to a …Read more
