Ok. I have usually used drugstore highlighters because I normally don't use it every day.
BUT....I was completely drawn to this highlighter and debated for like 2 weeks whether to buy it since my bday was coming up. I am so glad I bought it. I have been using it every day since (well, days that i wear makeup lol). It is STUNNING! It is the perfect gold, it is buildable, and it lasts all …

Lip Treatments - Glossier - Balm Dotcom

I have the coconut scented one and i like it more than i thought i would. I use this while i'm doing my makeup to moisturize my lips before any lip products and is my go-to on no-makeup days. A little goes a long way. Packaging is minimal and cute, like all Glossier products. Not sure if I'll repurchase though when i run out because there are many other options with easy access in …Read more

Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream - Monte Carlo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2018

I must have gotten a dud when I bought the shade Monte Carlo. I LOVE the SMLC's and have bought many shades over the years, and they all had that same creamy matte formula that dries down fairly quickly. However, this shade is super liquidy, streaky and doesn't dry down at all on me. All the swatches I've seen online have the classic soft matte look so i'm wondering if they …Read more

I have the shades Burnished Blush and Varnished Rosewood. BB is the perfect pink for spring, and VB is a great MLBB mauvey-nude color. They remind me of the much-missed Revlon Lip Butters. I got mine for 7.99 each at Target but elsewhere it is 9.99.

Pros: -Creamy and moisturizing
-Beautiful, buildable shades
-Gorgeous packaging makes them look …

Lip Liners - NYX Professional Makeup - Professional Makeup Slim Lip Pencil - Mauve (831)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

One of my favorite lip liners. Ive heard that this is a dupe for MAC Whirl and UD Liar lip liners. This color pairs well with a lot of different neutral shade lipsticks and also looks great on its own with balm on top for a MLBB look. My only issue with it is that it is a bit dry and tugs a bit as most NYX Slim liners tend to do. Otherwise a great product.

Dr Bronner's is such an amazingly versatile soap. I have the peppermint one that I've used mostly for cleaning and the unscented version that i like to use in the shower and for my sons baths. Works great for cleaning makeup brushes too!

I am disappointed after hearing all the hype with this mascara. I bought the waterproof one and it still flaked and smudged, yet it was still a pain in the butt to remove. It doesn't do much for my lashes either. In fact, it just made them clump together and look like i has less lashes.. Only nice thing is that the tube is pretty lol..I don't know what it is but I seem to never have …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Tame and Frame Brow Pomade in Brunette

Sep/12/2017

This is my new go-to for my brows!

I've always been more of a brow powder or pencil girl. I recently realized that powder tends to fade quickly on me and pencil doesn't look as natural on me so I decided I wanted to try a pomade. I purchased it in the shade "Black" even though it is more of a brown-black, which is awesome for us girls with dark brown hair and brows …

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

I was surprised by how much i liked this foundation. It has such a natural looking finish and is easily build-able. Not cakey at all and blends beautifully. My only complaint is it does smell a bit paste-ey but it doesn't linger too long.
