Makeup Wishlist

Happy Saturday everyone! I have recently been on a try-something-new mood. There have also been a lot of cool things that different makeup brands have come out with that I would LOVE to try. Here are a few:

Urban Decay – Flushed

This simply looks amazing! I saw xsparkage’s video about this product and fell in love.

Revlon – Nearly Naked Foundation & Powder

These sounds like they are a great combo! Not to mention that I am already a pretty big fan of Revlon’s foundations.

The Balm – Meet Matt(e)

Let’s be honest here, this is the most hilariously packaged palette ever! They also look like they have a great variation of colors for any kind of look.

Please let me know below if you think I should give any of the items above a shot or if there are any other items you think I should try!

Have a wonderful weekend ❤

Ulta Wishlist!

Ulta Wish List

Hey everyone! I have been currently lusting on quite a few products from Ulta so I wanted to share them with you all.

1. Revlon Whipped Color Stay Foundation

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this product and would love to try it. I don’t have many foundations but the Color Stay line is always known for being so great that I want to see what all the hype is about! For a in depth review, check out It’s Judy Time. She has an awesome review!

2. Urban Decay De Slick

It’s summer time and I get really oily sometimes in my T-Zone and would love to see if this spray is the magic everyone talks about. I know that Urban Decay also has a oil blotting powder. Which one do you all recommend? Also heard about the Skindinavia line of finishing sprays, is that one better?

3. Revlon Just Bitten Lip Balm Stain

Another recommendation from It’s Judy Time! Check out her review! She explains how nice it feels on your lips and during this time of year, I want to stay clear of any matte finish. I was able to try it on when my cousin purchased her first shade this past week! I’ll admit that I regretted not getting myself a few of the colors!

4. Urban Decay Naked Palette

I know I’m late on this and know that I have a nice neutral palette that I love but can you blame me for wanting to try it?

5. Benefit Erase Paste

Another one that a lot of people recommend that I really want to try! I’m just always on the fence about it when I test it out at Ulta. It never looks like it’s covering anything. I’m also in love with my Photo Ready concealer so I don’t know if I’m comparing it too much!

 Thank you guys for reading! Let me know if there are any other products you think I should try!

88 Color Palette from Ebay!

Most of us are always looking to experiment with new shades of makeup to find what suits us. Well, if you are trying to find that perfect shade but don’t want to spend a small fortune then check out Ebay! I own an 88 matte color palette that I received a while back and still use when I’m in a mood to try something new.

Below is the actual seller that I bought it from:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180593334198

Their price is $14.99 with FREE shipping!

If you go on ebay and look for this palette, you may find that there are other ones for less but I give you this seller because I own the palette and want to make sure you guys get what I received.

Why I recommend this:

  • Vibrant colors!
  • Pigmented
  • Includes a mirror
  • Free shipping!
  • Matte shades
  • Great Matte Black!
  • Neutral tones

Here are some random swatches out of the many colors!

Quick Tips:

  • The colors will seem a bit chalky but just make sure you do your eyeshadow before foundation in order to get rid of the excess.
  • Use a primer!
  • Mix these wonderful matte shades with a shimmery color for a fun look.

International readers!

Hope you all enjoyed this! Please let me know if you bought this item! Would love to hear what you think 🙂

Blue Had Me At Hello!

Who doesn’t love a good eyeshadow palette for under $5?! I know that I do, and I have one that has absolutely beautiful colors. They may not be the most practical but they are great for a night out or for a dramatic look. Wet & Wild keeps on impressing me with amazing palettes that are not only a great deal but also very nicely pigmented!

One of my favorites is the Blue Had Me At Hello 8 color palette. There are 4 frosty colors, 3 with sparkle and one matte. It’s in the blue family with one white shade on the top left and one matte black on the bottom left. As you can tell from the swatch below, the colors are all extremely pigmented!

I used this for a Britney Spears “I’m a Slave for You” inspired makeup look for her Femme Fatale Concert last year. The colors looked amazing!

For this look, all I used was the Wet & Wild Palette!

My two beautiful friends, Anaili & Jessica showing off their makeup on our way to the Britney Concert!

I know that sometimes there is a misconception with cheaper makeup but Wet & Wild is truly an exemption and the pictures above say it all!

Have any of you used this palette before? Any other favorite Wet & Wild palettes that you think I should try?

Favorite Neutral Palette

Now a days there are so many nude palettes on the market that it becomes difficult to find one that suits you. Like everyone else, I wanted to try the coveted Urban Decay Naked Palette but didn’t really want to spend the $50 on it. So one day at Ulta, I spotted the NYX Nude on Nude palette that retails for $25 on sale for $14! Without hesitation, I purchased it and have never looked back!

*The Palette is currently $25 at Ulta but always look out for a sale!*

Why I love it:

  • Amazing range of colors!
  • Matte and shimmer shades
  • 20 shades!
  • Very pigmented
  • Amazing lasting power (with primer!)
  • The price!
  • Multipurpose
  • Every color you need in one compact package
  • Includes lip colors!
  • Lot of great one color shades for quick makeup looks
  • Cruelty Free

Swatches:

The palette really lets you play up a nude look during the day but also intensify at night with one of the amazing darker shades.

There isn’t enough good things that I can say about this palette because it has really come in handy! I used it on my graduation photos on my friend and I and it was amazing!

As always, I use a primer before applying the shadows for better lasting power and I’m always impressed by how beautiful the colors show up.

This is a picture taken by Alexander Rothschild for our College Graduations! My friend Jenine (left) and I right both have on the NYX Nude on Nude Palette and it truly photographed well!

Here is a close-up of my eyes after using the NYX Palette!

Hope you all enjoyed this post about my favorite nude palette! What is your favorite nude palette?

This product was purchased by me and these are my true and honest opinions!
