Gerard Cosmetics-Mini Haul & Review

"Beauty, Makeup, Uncategorized"

Gerard Cosmetics is one of the online makeup brands that I absolutely love and adore! Their products are truly amazing and they always have some sort of sale going on! During their Black Friday sale I got some lipsticks, lip glosses, and a hydra-matte liquid lipstick. The one thing I hate about online shopping is choosing a color based off of their swatches. They always use fairer skinned models, so it's hard for someone darker to choose. Soooo... here are my swatches of the colors I got! From top to bottom: Rodeo Drive Lipstick Vintage Rose Lipstick Electric Rose Supreme Lip Creme Destiny Supreme Lip Creme Crystal Lipgloss Ruby Slipper Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick Lipsticks: The formula is creamy, pigmented, long-wearing, and not drying at all.. basically everything you want out of a lipstick.…

The Secret to Soft Lips with Matte Lipsticks

"Beauty, Makeup, Uncategorized"

Happy Holidays everyone! I'm posting this week's blog a little early because I'm going out of town this week. I might put some pics of my trip on my instagram so you guys can check them out if you'd like. Anyways, I swear by the product I'm about to mention!! I have super dry lips but this secret keeps them hydrated: Line lips with lip liner and fill them in if you'd like. Apply Nivea's Lip Butter all over. It's important to line your lips first because lip liner will be hard to apply after putting on this product.  Apply Matte lipstick. It's as simple as that! I've tried using regular chapstick first but my lips get super dry still. However, with this lip butter by Nivea my lips feel super soft and supple…

Review: Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits

"Beauty, Lips, Uncategorized"

People go crazy over Kylie Jenner's liquid lipsticks! They used to get sold out in a matter of minutes! But is it really worth the craze? I bought the Kristen lip kit which is kind of a strawberry red type of color (more pink than red). Here are swatches: [gallery ids="705,704" type="columns"] I like that it's a nice color and the pigmentation is great. It's a unique color with a very pleasant scent. The lip liner is creamy and glides on easily. I don't like that it isn't very long wearing and that it is drying. I know that liquid lipsticks generally ARE drying but the Kylie liquid lipsticks are more drying than other liquid lipsticks I've tried. After wearing this lipstick for a while it gets a little patchy on my lips (some…

ColourPop Cosmetics – Lippie Stix and Matte Liquid Lips

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

Hi everyone! First off, sorry I didn't post anything last week, I was so busy with finals! I will try to do 2 posts this week to make up for that! :) Anyways, this week I wanted to do a review on Colourpop's lip products for you guys! Everyone raves about ColourPop's lip products because of their pigmentation and affordable price (lipsticks are around 5$-6$). I've tried their ultra mattes, their lippie stix, and their lippie pencils. Here are my thoughts: THEIR LIPPIE STIX ARE AWESOME! They are hydrating and pigmented. I love the color "Rayezor" from their collection. It's the perfect coral-ish nude!! Definitely gonna repurchase this one! See below for swatches. [gallery ids="619,618" type="rectangular"] I don't love their ultra mattes. While they are affordable and pigmented, they are incredibly drying. I've tried…

The Real Use for Mac Fix +

"Beauty, Makeup, skin, Uncategorized"

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to talk about MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix+. Many people think that MAC Fix+ is intended to be a setting spray, when it isn't. I do not own that photo. ^ Just an image I got from Google images. It's actually a finishing spray. It contains glycerin which helps in making your make up look more uniform. Essentially, it brings the whole make up look together (especially useful if you highlight and contour your face). This spray is also for hydration. So basically, it's supposed to help by making your makeup not look dry/cakey. It kind of "melts" your make up to your skin (not literally melt cause that would be bad- but you get what I mean!). Of course you can use this product whichever way you…

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette – Worth the Hype?

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

[gallery ids="509,508,510" type="square"] Hi everyone! I was SO excited when I got my Huda Beauty Rose-Gold Eyeshadow Palette! Her fake eyelashes are AMAZING so my expectations of this was so high.. especially with all of the hype on social media! So did this palette live up to the hype?! Lets start off with the textured shadows. They are truly like nothing I've ever seen before! They kind of give a foiled effect when applied with your fingers. I've never seen a shimmery eyeshadow that glides on so smoothly and vividly. It's like a loose pigment in eyeshadow form. The sparkly eyeshadows are so pigmented and vibrant. See below for sparkle swatches. (Angelic and Moondust are not 3D colors) Matte Swatches: The matte shadows are also pretty perfect! They are easily buildable and blendable. It…
