My favorite brand of makeup has to be Tarte because of all the gorgeous packaging and great quality of makeup.

I’m not picky when it comes to this. I’d be ok going anywhere that is serene, but also has tons of exploring to do.

Product Review: Kat Von D Everlasting lip liner (retractable)

Hey Beauties!!!

Happy Tuesday! I figured I’d share this product review with you guys because I am obsessed with it!!! You may already be obsessed with Kat Von D’s makeup line already. Well, she impressed me once again with her lip liner!!

It retails for $18.00 which isn’t bad for the quality and colors. It doesn’t budge at all (just like all of her products)

As always, the packaging is very rocker like!


The color I got was “Lolita” which is described as a “chestnut rose.” I have to agree that it does look exactly like the color on the packaging!


And…here goes a swatch for you guys!


This is definitely a gorgeous shade for everyday wear or even to line with any lipstick for a natural look!

Pros:

  • Vegan
  • No need to sharpen
  • Long lasting
  • Creamy
  • Sets pretty quick
  • Color is stunning 

Cons:

  • A little pricey (so worth it though)
  • Online only (sephora exclusive)


Hope you guys enjoyed this quick review! Let me know if you loved or hated this product!! 

*Disclaimer: I was sent this product in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own!*

March 2017 Favorites

Hey Beauties!!!!

Happy Friday! We made it to another weekend. Which is also the last day of the month. It flew by so fast. Today I’ll be sharing my favorites for the month of March!!

I have somewhat of a long list, but I included pictures just in case you wanted to find any of these products:

I’ve been loving Urban Decays Naked skin. Not only is it lightweight, but it also gives a decent amount of coverage. (I’m in the shade 7.0) I also love their matching powder because it’s travel friendly (:



”Tis the season of bronzy and glowing skin!!! NARS Latina bronzer gives warmth to my skin and adds a little shimmer for beautiful sun kissed skin 🌞



I’ve been loving peachy blushes this month, and this color looks absolutely stunning. There’s tons of product although the packaging is quite little. I also love the shimmer that it has.



I’ve been using this on the days where I’m more tired because it gives such a nice glow to the undereyes. Also, a little goes a long way! 



Although I have oily skin, this has been my go to primer this month. It gives such a beautiful glow and the purple corrects dull skin. I’ve noticed changes in my skin due to lack of sleep, but this product works wonders 💜



If you haven’t purchased these palettes, you definitely need to! They are to die for. The pigmentation on both of these palettes are stunning. Also, the smell of the Tartiest pro to go palette is delicious! 


For brows, I’ve been loving the Anastasia brow defined. It’s a lot thicker than the brow wiz, but I love it more because the brow wiz always breaks on me. 


This has been my go to this month just because I need to try to finish all of my liquid liners. You have a lot of control when doing a wing, and it’s super black which I love. 


These two mascaras are perfection. The Tarte lights, camera, lashes are perfect and it doesn’t irritate the eye which is a big plus. The benefit tinted primer is great as a primer, but is also great to set your brows with. 

I didn’t add any lippy faves this month because I’ve been using different ones this month. My goal is to utilize all my makeup so it doesn’t just sit there and get old. So far I’ve been doing great!
Hope you guys enjoyed my monthly favorites. Let me know what your favorite product is this month (if you can only pick one) Also, let me know if you guys have tried any of these products listed above. ❤❤!

Product Review: Formula 10.0.6 Seriously shine free mattifying oil-free moisturizer

Hey Beauties and happy Wednesday❤! 

Hope your week is going as great as mine! I don’t know about you guys, but I have some serious oily skin. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this product so I decided to give it a try for you guys! 

It looks like this 👇🏽


The consistency as shown below reminds me of the smashbox photo finish primer and when you rub it into your skin it feels very refreshing and cooling to the skin! 👇🏽


This moisturizer has Aloe Leaf Juice as well as Bamboo Stem Extract. When it’s applied to the skin, it definitely soaks up very well and doesn’t leave your skin feeling or looking greasy. 

The smell of this product definitely smells like bamboo and aloe. 

Another great thing about this product is I’ve tried this moisturizer As a Primer and it worked soooo well! Definitely kept my makeup Matte all day! 

Pros:

  • Very affordable
  • A little goes a long way
  • Keeps face Matte
  • Oil-free
  • Great for oily skin
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Feels refreshing
  • Can be doubled as a primer 

Cons:

  • If you don’t like the smell of bamboo or aloe, you probably won’t like the smell of this
  • Almost always sold out

Hope you lovelies enjoyed this quick product review! Also, I will also start bringing home decor posts on this blog. Maybe hauls, ideas, diy’s? You guys should let me know!! ❤❤❤

Product Review: Smashbox Golden Hour Eye Palette

Hey Beauties and happy Friday to all of you!!! We made it to the end of the week! 

I decided to review one of the newest palette out of the new “Cover Shots” collection by Smashbox! 

Ok, so Smashbox is known for their primers and foundations in my opinion, but they’re really stepping there game up in the makeup game! They came out with some awesome lipsticks and now this awesome eye collection! 

To make this awesome new collection, Smashbox paired with The gorgeous-Shay Mitchell!

This collection has 7 palettes in total and for only $29 you can’t go wrong! This particular palette (the golden hour) has 6 shimmery shadows and 2 Matte shadows! 

Can we just admire this awesome packaging!!! Ugh it’s perfection! 


When you tilt the packaging, this is how it looks! So cool right?!


I would definitely recommend this palette for women of any color. From fair to dark! 


The names of these shadows definitely match them quite well!



…SWATCHES TIME!!!!!!

Pros:

  • Gorgeous shades
  • Silky shadows
  • Doesn’t stain the lid
  • Packaging is to die for
  • Price point is affordable
  • Travel friendly

Cons:

  • To get better pigmentation, use with primer
  • Only 2 colors out of this palette is Matte (definitely not for a non-shimmery wearer)

Hope you guys enjoyed this product Review! Let me know if you want me to do some looks with this palette!! Also, if you have this palette, let me know if you love it or hate it!

How my blog started:

I always knew I wanted to start a blog because it lets out my creative side. I have a passion for makeup and traveling and I felt the need to share it. I know there are tons of individuals out there like me and I think it’s great to share passions! 

2 pieces of advice to new bloggers:

I’m a new blogger myself so from a new blogger to another new blogger… my advice would be to stay true to yourself. A lot of times we second guess what we say because we’re to worried about what others think. Well, just to put it out there.. everyone will judge you ok everything you do. It’s not easy being judged, but over time it gets easier. 

Another piece of advice to you guys is to interact with fellow bloggers. Don’t think you’re better then someone else. Let’s support each other so we can help each other grow! 

To all those that read it this far! I’d like to give this award to all of you!!! 


Hope you guys enjoyed this post!! Let me know what your advice to anyone that blogs is!
