7 Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

7 Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

Liquid lipsticks are a stable nowadays to anyone’s makeup collection and most brands have a liquid lipsticks on their collection.

I want to stay Stila started this trend, at least from what I remember.

Anastasia must’ve came out with liquid lipsticks shortly after, and they did an equally great job. Their formula and pigmentation is wonderful, although, more on the dry side.

An average price for one these types of lipsticks are usually around $19, which may seem a bit pricey for some of you, but if you buy the right shade and if it is an everyday wearable color, you could get a good use out of it and would last a long time.

Personally, I rather get the better product and pay a little more to be able to get a better use out of it.

But on the contrary, recently I found that you can really find steals at the drug-store, which are just as good.

I always try to share with you guys the great drug store steals. In the investment world, you would call these the “unicorns” because they are so rare and yet so amazing!

Here’s My Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks:

  1.    Make Up Forever – Artist Liquid Matte 103

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This shade was in my very first blog post, monthly favorites, 2017 favorites and now it’s in my holy-grail liquid lipsticks post. Is that enough proof for you to see that I am obsessed! Whenever I am running out of my house and need to put on a lipstick really quick, I’ll gravitate towards this one as it is such a beautiful nude. I never run out of Liquid Lipsticks and I am at the end of this one!

  1.       Anastasia Beverly Hills – Trouble Liquid Lipstick

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

Love this color. It’s a beautiful nude with a hint of mauve, but not too bold. It’s so girly and perfect shade for a date night. It is a bit drying but just make sure you moisturize your lips before and you are good to go!

  1.       Stila – patina

Memoallure.com Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This shade is my best friends favorite and I initially tried it from her collection and quickly fell in love with it. I love this one as it is such a unique color. It’s a little more on the darker side of things for nude lipsticks, but also a gorgeous color! It’s on the darker mauve  scale of things. If you follow Champagne & Chanel, then you’ve seen that she wears this all the time.

  1.       Dose of Colors – Truffle

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

I tried this the last months of 2017 and quickly fell in love. Dose of Colors have the most comfortable to wear liquid lipsticks! They feel like you are not even wearing lipstick. It’s not drying, and this shade is so beautiful. It’s on the brown side of nudes and an everyday wearable color!

  1.       Stila – Bacca

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This shade is hard to explain. It’s on the red spectrum, but has different undertones – more like on the pink/red side of things. It’s super wearable and is perfect for Valentine’s day if you want to do something different than just red lips. Anyone who isn’t sure if they can pull of red lipsticks, try this one and you might be shocked at how flattering this is!

  1.      Maybelline – 05 Loyalist

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This is a drugstore one – so it’s on the affordable side of things. I honestly didn’t think I would like this as much as I do. I love wearing it alone, but also love wearing it on top of darker shades which allow for an ombré effect. I have two other shades from this line and love those as well.

  1.       Anastasia Beverly Hills – vamp Liquid Lipstick

Holy Grail Liquid Lipsticks

This one is a perfect fall shade. Or winter since that is the season we’re in now. Love how wearable this is as well and the perfect shade you will ever need for your fall/winter makeup looks! I feel like if I can somewhat pull it off with my small lips, then you can too! I mean it’s all about self-confidence. If you act confident – anything will look good on you 🙂

January Beauty Favorites – 2018

Hi guys!

I wanted to let you guys know (finally) that starting today, I will have a more organized posting schedule. This way you guys can have an idea of what to expect and can tune into the topics that you care about the most on the particular days. Here’s what the schedule will look like:

  • Makeup Mondays – anything makeup and beauty related
  • Wellness Wednesdays – health, fitness and anything to grow your mind
  • Fashion Fridays – jewelry or fashion I’m loving. I may not always write a post about it, but I will have details on my Instagram page. You can follow me here, if you care about this topic the most.

Hope this helps you guys and I can’t wait to share with you all what I’ve been working on! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out! 🙂

Let’s get on with today’s Makeup Monday topic…

January has been a good month for me. Not only because it’s my birthday month, but also a month where I’ve found some of the most amazing beauty products!

Some of them I know will become part of my ride-or-die collection. Also, you may notice that some of these are travel size because I’ve received as a sample, which I have fallen in love with and will need to buy the full size!

There has been so many new products that have launched this month, which I haven’t gotten my hands on….. yet 😉 I am excited to try some of the new drug-store makeup that have come out as well as the new Tarte foundation (which has been quite controversial).

Stay tuned as I will be more consistent with my monthly favorites.

Here’s My January Beauty Favorites – 2018:

Lilly Lashes – Mykonos

January Beauty FavoritesMemoallure.com - January Beauty Favorites

Every beauty guru on YouTube raves about Lilly Lashes, particularly the Mykonos and Miami ones, and I figured it was time for me to find out what the rave was all about. I did buy both of them, but have only tried Mykonos this month. These ones are super intense. I think they are as intense as fake lashes can get. If you are wearing these, make sure it is for a special event and that you over-exaggerate your makeup as it hides majority of your makeup if it is not bold. I’m excited to try the other ones, and will keep you guys updated!

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer

January Beauty Favorites

I bought this because once again many beauty gurus were raving about it and since I live on the east coast – dry skin is so real during this time of year. I tend to have drier skin regardless, but this is perfect for the winter months for me as it gives me the perfect hydration. The texture for this is quite runny, more so than regular primers, so at first I was a bit hesitant of how it would actually hydrate my skin, but it worked its magic and works so effortlessly! I haven’t been able to put on any of my foundations without this in the month of January!

Tarte Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation – Light Sand

January Beauty Favorites

I bought this when it went on sale at Ulta, and to my contentment this turned out to be an amazing product. I didn’t have high hopes for it, but I ended up loving it for its everyday use. It is great for anyone who doesn’t love full coverage and needs some coverage that feels lightweight for professional settings. I love wearing this at work as it feel comfortable all day and is a great day time foundation. For me, Tarte can’t go wrong with their foundations, but let’s see if they will hold that to be true for their Tarte Tape Shape Foundation! **I tried to link this for you guys, but I can’t find it anywhere. I’m not sure if it’s discontinued 🙁

Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector

January Beauty Favorites

This concealer reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer. It has the same texture and is lightweight. I’ve been loving using this all month. It’s a great concealer for brightening and also great as a eyeshadow primer. I did notice if I don’t set it right away, it will crease fairly quick, so beware of that. Other than that, great affordable drugstore product for a dupe of a high end concealer!

Natasha Denona Holiday Palette

January Beauty Favorites

This was my first palette from Natasha Denona as I wanted to know what the hype was all about, but didn’t want to commit to her most expensive palette’s. This one here was $45, which is quite expensive for only 5 shades. It does not disappoint though, the formulation is super creamy and extremely pigmented without too much fall out. It is nothing like anything I have ever tried. It’s truly amazing. I do feel that it could be beginner friendly as long as you blend somewhat well. I did not find it too difficult to use even though the shades are intense. It almost felt like I didn’t have to put too much effort into it and it automatically looked beautiful, which is what I look for in eye shadows. It’s too frustrating to have eye shadows that are hard to work with – nobody has time for that!

Dose of Colors Truffle

January Beauty Favorites

If you read my 2017 favorites as well as my Ulta haul back in December, know about this already. It has made it in my January favorites as well because it is to reassure you, although, I tried it only in December, I really do love these. The formula for these are nothing like anything else I have tried; they are creamy, hydrating and comfortable to wear. Liquid lipsticks tend to be drying and really not comfortable at all, which is why these are miraculous. I love this shade in particularly as it is great for everyday wear. It is on the brown spectrum for nudes. It has my go-to shade for the month, and I’m sure it will be for the other coming months.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

January Beauty Favorites

I bought the travel size for this just to test it out and quickly fell in love. I can’t go anywhere without this. It’s meant to be hydrating and refreshing. If you don’t like rose scented things, you probably won’t like this, although, I don’t think the scent is too overwhelming. I believe you can also use this as a setting spray, but I usually don’t. For me, I will usually use it as a toner or just a quick little pick me up throughout the day.

Living proof. restore perfecting spray

memoallure.com January Beauty Favorites

I think I received this as a Sephora gift with my points and as expected from this brand, it’s amazing. I use this after showering when my hair is wet and it makes my hair so silky and smooth. It is a detangler and smells so nice. I don’t think I will ever find a Living proof. product that I don’t like, at this point I don’t think it’s possible.

Coola Sunless Tan

memoallure.com January Beauty Favorites

This was once again a Sephora gift with my points, which I received a few months back. I initially tried it and wasn’t impressed with it and recently decided to give it another chance. Guys, this is a life lesson here to say that you should always give things a second chance because this is the best product that has ever come into my life. Okay, maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but anyone who is experiencing the winter months right now, know that the pale skin is so real. This is a great way to have the sun kissed skin, without the damaging rays. It looks so real and natural and honestly it has allowed me to wear less makeup because my skin looks so amazing. Who else wears less makeup when they’re tan? Well, that’s exactly how it feels like. Again, I will have to repurchase once I run out of this.

That’s all for my January favorites. Thanks for reading! Let me know if there are any products you suggest and I can give them a try. 🙂

Xx, Ozzy

Ulta Haul and Review

Huge ULTA Haul & Review | Winter 2017

Christmas came early for me this year! I had the 20% coupon at Ulta, and of course I had to use it…..

This haul consists of a lot of ‘cult favorites’ and stuff that I’ve been meaning to try for quite some time.

I’m so excited to share it with you guys as I’ve been trying these products for a few days now and have been loving all of it!

I figured I would share this before Christmas as all my makeup junkies may be (hopefully) getting gift cards to Ulta or Sephora and you can have an idea of what to buy!

I bought everything online and was eagerly waiting for my package to share with you guys. I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for a package. It’s nice that it came a week early as a Christmas present to myself! Sometimes you gotta treat yo’ self because if you can’t value you then who will!?!

I think the key is to do what makes you the happiest and to enjoy it without any guilt. For me, that is makeup. I get so joyful thinking and talking about makeup, that I know it’s something I should do without any guilt.

Anyways, let’s get to the important part…..

Here is what I got at Ulta:

Dose of Colors –

Liquid Matte Lipstick in Truffle & Liquid Matte Lipstick in Stone

Huge Ulta Haul

So, apparently these two shades are a cult classic and are shades that most beauty gurus have. Before this purchase, I never tried anything from Dose of Colors and I am quite shocked at how amazing they are from what I know of these two products.

The stone shade is more of a mauve tone and it is absolutely beautiful. The Truffle shade is a little more on the brown side of things and is a great nude shade. It’s a bit darker than your typical nude.

These two shades are super wearable and an everyday stable. What I was so shocked about with these lipsticks is that usually matte lipsticks are very drying and can also look dry on your lips.  Those types of matte lipsticks can be quite uncomfortable to wear, but these ones felt so moisturizing and yet still looked matte. Honestly, I was shocked…. it doesn’t even feel like you are wearing lipstick – it’s crazy!

I am officially a Dose of Colors fan. I can’t wait to try their other products. 🙂

Too Faced –

Chocolate Gold Palette

There has been such a rave around this new palette that I had to try it myself. Not particularly because there was so much rave around it, but really it looks beautiful and caught my eye. I had a good feeling that I would really like it. I was not wrong. This is so pigmented and so festive, especially around this time of year. I do love Too Faced eye shadow palette’s so I wasn’t too surprised of how great this one is. I love that this palette comes with transition shade colors, so you can really do a complete look using only this palette which is great! Apparently, the gold is real and yes, it does smell like chocolate as always. Too Faced has a 20% off your first purchase when you sign up, so if you’re looking to purchase their products, I would suggest you do that. I’m all for saving any type of money whenever I can.

Memoallure.com Too Faced Review

Benefit –

Hoola Bronzer & GALifornia Blush

From Benefit, I got my ride-or-die bronze – Hoola. I’m sure many of you love this one as well. I love using their contour stick and then setting that with the Hoola powder. It really looks so beautiful and ‘natural’ or as natural as makeup can look! Those two products are really products I don’t think I can live without.

Something new for me is Benefits blush. I was intrigued after I saw someone on YouTube using it. It’s the GALifornia Blush. It smells so nice and looks so beautiful – both on and in the package. It’s shimmery and has a sun kissed glow type of feel to it. It’s honestly so beautiful and is subtle. I really don’t like overpowering blushes and this one is not one of those. I was a little hesitant because looking at it you’d think it’d be too pigmented, but it really is not. This in some way reminds me of the Nars Orgasm blush. I love that one as well as it is also super wearable.

Maybelline –

Ulta Haul and Review

As many of you may already know from this post, that I am obsessed with Maybelline’s Super Stay Matte inks. The formula is wonderful, especially for a drug store brand. So, I had to try different shades to see how if they perform the same. I got the shades 75- Fighter and 10-Dreamer. I haven’t tried them yet, but I have high hopes for both of the shades. I am loving the brown fighter shade it seems like such a great winter shade. Dreamer is more of a pink shade and I think it will look so cute as a date night look or for Valentine’s day!

Real Techniques –

Ulta was having a deal where you could buy one get the second 50% off some brands, and Real Techniques was one of them. So was Maybelline, which is why I bought those two shades above. Real Technique has some of the best brushes for an affordable brand. They really are the winners for me in this department.

Ulta Haul and Review

I bought the Diamond shaped sponge and the blush brush. And I may say I did such a good job choosing these two products because I am obsessed with both products. In particular, I AM ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED with the diamond sponge. I honestly bought it because I thought it was cute and packaging really wins me over for makeup, but it exceeded my expectations. Honestly, I may like this more than the original Beauty Blender. Really, I do. It’s crazy, I know.  The bottom of the Diamond is flat and great for applying your makeup and the tip of it isn’t as sturdy as I’d like, but it still works. If you don’t like that you could also just squeeze it and use the other edges, which is what I’ve been doing. I love this so much.

Tarte –

Empowered hybrid gel foundation in light sand

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I was done with my cart and didn’t want to purchase anything else…. but then I saw that Tarte was having a sale for one of their foundations, so I had to try it out. I believe I paid only $10 for it. They were also having the sale for the brush that goes with this foundation, but it was sold out. Such a bummer! I didn’t have high hopes for this foundation and wasn’t going to be too disappointed if it didn’t work out as it didn’t break the bank for me. But it ended up being perfect for me. It is not full coverage but leaves your skin looking so flawless and is perfect for those days that you want to do a natural look or want to wear it in a professional setting. I will for sure wear this in the office. I love it so much and love the packaging as it makes things so much easier.

memoallure.com Ulta Haul and Review

The second product I got from Tarte is no new news at this point and that is the Shape Tape concealer. This one is my second tube, and I was out of it, so I had to restock on it.

Ofra-

Ulta Haul and Review

I’ve been so intrigued to try Nikki Tutorial’s collab with Ofra as Nikki is the queen of highlights. I knew that I wouldn’t be disappointed, so I purchased it. And yes, as highly expected, it did not disappoint. It is really #goals for highlighting your face. I got the shade “Glazed Donut” as I do not have a highlighter in this shade. I love it so far and can’t wait to play around with it.

Wet N’ Wild-

319B Highlighting Powder

Ulta Haul and Review

Wet N’ Wild has been killing it with every product that they’ve come out with this year and I figured I’d try their highlighter as well. This was only $4.99 which is crazy so I’m hoping to like it. I haven’t tried it, but it looks beautiful. I love their blush and have talked about it in this post, so I think this won’t disappoint. The packaging is gorgeous on this. It has a flower embedded on the product which is so beautiful to me.

Physicians Formula-

Butter Bronzer

Okay, I think many of you have heard of this product already, but I have never tried it. I’ve heard so many beauty gurus rave about it, so I had to try it for myself. And I have not been disappointed. I really love this one as well. It is buttery as the name suggests and it smells like a vacation. No, seriously it does. It has a coconut fragrant to it. It’s not too overpowering, either. So far, so good with this.

Elf –

Sculpt & Shine Brush Set

Memoallure.com  Ulta Haul and Review

Lastly, I bought this package of brushed from Elf. This might be my first product from Elf and it did not disappoint. This is the contour kit. I really needed something like this as I usually use a beauty blender for my contouring needs and now when I don’t want to use a beauty sponge for my look, I can just use this kit. This was only $10, and it is amazing. The first brush is for baking around the cheek area to fix your contour or bronzer so that it’s sharper. The second brush is for setting your concealer under your eyes. The third brush is great for nose contouring or getting smaller areas. Looks like this is only $7 on Amazon, which is even better!


That is all for my Ulta haul this time around. I was not disappointed with any of the products I tried and I guess that’s mainly because I did my homework before buying all of these products. I would highly suggest that you guys do the same before buying anything. If I’ve said something works great on me, go and research that product more, maybe on YouTube or other beauty bloggers to get the best idea of that product!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

xoxo,

Ozzy

Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lipsticks Review

New Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Liquid Lipsticks | Review

I wanted to share these lipsticks with you guys before any of your holiday parties that may be coming up for you because these lipsticks are definitely holiday approved!

They are so festive and so wearable. Even the darker shade looks amazing and not too crazy. Usually, darker shades are hard to pull off, but I did not feel that I had that problem with this one. Continue reading “New Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Liquid Lipsticks | Review”

Morphe Brushes Review

Morphe Brushes + Palette | Review

Morphe has become one of the most known affordable brands out there and has become even bigger this year as they have gotten investors to expand their business. Honestly, I am very impressed.

You can find Morphe products online and perhaps someday at Sephora. They do have their own store in CA, but unfortunately that’s not helpful for those of living outside of that.

I wanted to write this review as the only way for someone not living in California would be to purchase their stuff online – which can tend to be quite hard to decipher which products will work for you.

Before this purchase, I never used Morphe products….after this purchase, I AM OBSESSED. The thing that really makes me love it is that they are so affordable. Some of the brushes I got were I believe around $4 – so crazy and yet the quality is so good!

As the holiday season is approaching, this may be a good gift idea or you can just treat yo’ self because the holiday season is all about being happy, right?!

Let’s get to the review…

Pro Round Blender E27

Morphe Brushes

This is probably one of the best blending brushes I’ve ever used. It’s so fluffy and easy to use. The best part is it’s only $7! Compared to MAC brushes, which tend to be in the $20s range, this is a much affordable price! It blends everything so smoothly, is lightweight and now I understand why all the YouTubers rave about these brushes!

Mini Concealer Brush – M421

Morphe Brushes Review

This brush is great for doing a look such as a cut crease or it’s great for cleaning up your eyebrows after you’ve lined them. It’s super small, which  makes it great for precise application. This brush is only $3.50 and I absolutely have been loving this!

Crease Precision Blender – E17

Morphe Brushes Review

This is again, a great blending brush, but more so for the outer corner of your lids as it is smaller and you can get more precise with it. The above blending brush, E27, is great for the transition shade application and this one is great to build up that outer corner darker shade. This one is only $7.

Pro Firm Blending Fluff – M433

Morphe Brushes Review

This is another blending brush and is great to blend right below the transition shade. I absolutely love this one. It’s a great brush to build up a tone of colors that you are working with. This is super fluffy – as all of the above brushes are, and blends beautifully. This brush is priced at $6.

Detail Crease – E36

Morphe Brushes Review

This brush I use for the outer corner as well, but can really get super precise with it. This one is great for really dark shades such as dark browns or blacks as they can get really messy really quick. This is much smaller than the E17, which is why you can get much precise with it but also work together with both of these brushes to create a beautiful look. This one is only $5.

Pro Precision Smudger – M326

Morphe Brushes Review

You can use this brush for your lower lash line and create a beautiful smokey eye. It can also be used with any shade you want, so it does not need to be a smokey eye. I feel that you can never just put eye liner on your lower lash line, you also need some eye shadow to add some depth, and this brush is perfect for that. Not sure if you can really tell with the picture, but this brush is super small. I absolutely love it. This one is $4.

Deluxe Buffer – M439

Morphe Brushes Review

Lastly, I had to purchase this because I’ve seen Jaclyn Hill rave about this for years and always wondered about it. I absolutely love it! It’s not too big or not too small – it’s perfect! I had the Tarte brush similar to this, but it was much bigger. I do not like that one as it is too big and it also just soaks too much of the foundation. This Morphe brush doesn’t seem to do that and it is super precise. This is the only foundation brush you need! This one is priced at $14.

Fall Into Frost Eye Shadow Palette – 35F

Morphe Brushes ReviewC364973C-0763-430A-8B81-16113812F4D3

I’ll start off by saying – wow these shades are beautiful!!!! When I swatched them for the first time (and touched them for the first time), I was shocked at how smooth and creamy they are. I love the range and you can really create so many looks with this palette. I loved playing around with this for fall and found that the shades are super easy to work with. The pigmentation is fairly good for the price point. Of course, high-end products do have better pigment than this one, but this palette wins for any drug-store brands or less expensive brands! You definitely need to set this with a setting spray so that it stays all day because I’ve found if you don’t, your eye shadow won’t last you all day with this palette. This palette is only $23.

Continuous Setting Spray

Morphe Brushes Review

I’ve heard so many great things about this product as well and had to try for myself. I do like it a lot. I love that it is continuous which makes it gentle and doesn’t feel like something is pouring on your face. Overall, I think this is a great setting spray and I’ve found that the eye shadow palette from above lasts much longer when I use this.


That is it, guys. Overall, I am so happy with all of my purchase and have been using them for over 2 months now. I think they are great for the price point and feel just as good as pro brushes such as MAC. Don’t get me wrong, I am still obsessed with MAC brushes, but if I want to be money-conscience and save my money, then these will be my go-to brushes to purchase.

***I am unfortunately not a Morphe affiliate so I cannot give you guys a discount, but if you go to YouTube, you can find it there. Some beauty guru’s that I know who have the 10% discount are Manny Mua (he’s the one I used, I love him so much!!), Jaclyn Hill or Laura Lee.

Hope this was helpful and let me know if you guys own any of these brushes

Ulta Beauty Haul + Review

Hey guys!

Wanted to share a quick Ulta haul with you guys and my review on them. I’ve had these actually for a while now, but just did not get around to writing about it.

This will be a bit more beneficial for you guys as I can also give a little bit of a review of the products.

Alright, without me rambling on forever, here is my Ulta haul.

The first item I bought is:

  • Carli Bybel BH Cosmetics Deluxe Edition Palette

Ulta Beauty Haul

I was so excited when I saw this at Ulta. Carli is such a sweet and giving YouTuber and has donated so much to great causes. I especially love this palette knowing she made this so affordable for us. I really think that is so sweet for her to care about her subscribers to create something we can afford to buy. This palette is truly more beautiful than I thought. It has so many pretty mattes and wearable shimmers. I especially like this because you can travel with it as it lightweight and has everything you need to create a gorgeous look! It has a nice sized mirror which is honestly perfect.

Carli Bybel Palette

  • Love Beauty Fully It Brushes for Ulta

This is a blush brush and seriously the fluffiest brush I have ever touched. I was in desperate need of a new one and fell in love with this once I touched it. This works with any cream, liquid or powder blushes which is great to have for versatility. This brush is also custom-designed and made with 100% cruelty-free synthetic fiber brush hair. I’m not sure if it was worth the money, but I do know it’s one of the fluffiest brushes I have ever touched.

Ulta Beauty Haul

  • L’Oreal Beauty Blender

I’ve heard so many positive things about this beauty blender and I had to try for myself. It is more affordable than the actual beauty blender itself, so I was all for it. I always feel guilty spending $20 for a little beauty blender, but it’s just needed because it really does work so well. I know real technique has a dupe as well, but I really did not like that one, although, a lot of people do rave about it. I did not think it worked well for me. This one below is only $7, so compared to the beauty blender, you can really save a good amount of money. You guys probably already all know about this sponge already and how everyone love it, and I officially joined the bandwagon!

Ulta Beauty Haul

  • NYX Face and Body Glitter Brillants in GLI 09Best of Beauty 2017

This is a bright pink glitter. I did a beautiful look with this and I cannot wait to recreate it. See below for the pic! I love NYX’s glitters, I think they are just as good as MAC — but less expensive 🙂 I actually have never tried MAC’s glitter, but I don’t feel like I am missing out with these dupes from NYX!

Ulta Haul

  • NYX Glitter Primer

I did not have a glitter primer before this and was in desperate need of one, so I chose to get this one. With the glitter above, its really hard to work with without the primer/glue, so I really had no choice but to purchase this. I used to use eyelash glue to put glitter on my eyelids… is that bad? 🙂 You can use this for eye shadow or for your lips to add a little sparkle to your look!

Ulta Beauty Haul

  • Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Cleansing Oil

I was in desperate need of a cleansing oil to remove my makeup. This is how I used to take off my makeup but I’ve become a bit lazy and use makeup wipes then use a normal cleanser. I tried this oil on my hand after I had many makeup products on it at Ulta and it easily took everything off. What I love about Juice Beauty is that it is organic and cruelty free.

Juice Beauty Cleansing Oil

  • SunBum Beach Formula Conditioner

Alright, I’m not really sure why I bought this. I just needed a conditioner and I think I blindly bought this. I just saw that it was enriched with coconut oil (which works great for my hair), has banana pulp/peel/leaf, quinoa protein and sunflower seed oil and I said “Nice, sounds good enough for me!”, but I did not realize it was a beach formula to protect you against UV rays. On the positive side, it’s cruelty free and color safe. You can never be too careful with UV rays, so I’m thinking I did good.

Cruelty Free Hair Care

  • Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow in into the blue

I think Stila did an amazing job with their line. After they came out with this, you could see that a lot of other brands tried to replicate something similar or came out with lip glosses that are similar to these. Who doesn’t live and breath for a good glitter? I know I do and this one is so beautiful! I think this would look so beautiful on blue eyes.

Anyways, hope you guys have a wonderful day and see you all next time!

Let me know if there are any products you would like me to try for next time.

Sephora Haul - Fall 2017

Sephora Haul – Fall 2017

As some of you know I used to work at Sephora and it was great, but financially, not so great. Last week they had friends and family coupon floating around, and thanks to one of my old colleagues, I was able to shop with a 20% discount! Now, for all of my makeup lovers, that is a BIG deal. I am also excited that the next 20% VIB sale is coming in a few days. My bank account, on the other hand, is crying sad, sad tears. I also had a 20% off at Ulta this past weekend, which of course, I HAD to use. Gosh, I sound like a makeup addict…oh because I am! 🙂 Continue reading “Sephora Haul – Fall 2017”

Drugstore Haul

Drug Store Makeup Haul – Fall 2017

 

I realize that the average girl doesn’t usually have all of the high end makeup products nor knows so much about them. Unlike myself, the average girl is good with one palette from a random drug store brand, a foundation and a mascara. Honestly, I envy you, your life is not full of clutter. On the other side, I can’t deny my love for makeup and yes, it is an obsession/addiction, but at least I get to share it with you guys and if something doesn’t work out for me, then you guys can know before purchasing it!

Drug store makeup can be great for anyone on a budget, but sometimes, if you purchase the wrong product, it can really be a waste of money. What I’m trying to say is — it can get real ugly, real quick!
