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…

Everything You Need to Know About the Beauty Blender

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

Hi everyone! I'm sure many of you have tried the Beauty Blender or want to try it so I just wanted to give you my thoughts on it. Β If you haven't tried it yet... here's how it works: Wet the sponge and squeeze out excess water (sponge should still be damp). Use it to blend your makeup (foundation, concealer, etc). Let the beauty blender air dry. This product works great for blending out concealer. For oily skin, I wouldn't use it to blend foundation or to apply powders (I have oily skin, so I'm speaking from experience). To clean my beauty blender I use the soap that comes in some of the packages. It gets everything right out. You want to be careful with which products you use to clean it because some products…

Review: Pro Blo-CurlME

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

Hi everyone! I've been seeing Pro-Blo products all over social media lately. I hate how flat hair straighteners make my hair so I decided to give this a try so I can finally have some voluminous straight hair! The middle picture comes in the box... [gallery ids="408,409,410" type="columns"] Procedure: Wait till your hair is ~80% dry. Attach the brush head to the handle. Blow dry a section of your hair and then roll the brush up to your head. Remove the handle and clip the brush head into your hair. Repeat until all of your hair is up. Let it sit for about 20 mins. Release. So here are my thoughts after trying it one time.. I really wanted to LOVE this product! I'm not much of a blow dryer so let me preface…
