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 ❤

Review: Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen

I have a confession to make… I’ve been cheating on my MAC fluidline! In a past post, I mentioned that MAC Fluidline was my favorite eyeliner until I encountered the Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen.

This eyeliner is unlike any other! It retails for $6.56 at you local drugstore and is available in three colors; blackest black, black and blackened brown.

This eyeliner claims:

-Felt tip controlled application
-Smudge-proof lasting color that wears up to 16 hours
-Easier to apply than traditional liquid eyeliners

Why I like it:

– ALL of the claims are TRUE!

– The felt tip is incredible with precision

– The lasting power is pretty good too! It will definitely last an entire work way.

– It is most definitely easier to apply than traditional liquid eyeliners. The felt tip applicator allows for great control of the product and the line.

– The color is a true black that does not require three coats

– Matte finish!

– Slick pencil like packaging

– Great price

What I don’t like:

– I wish it existed in other colors!

– My cousin has tried this product before and mentioned that the product was not as vibrantly black in the beginning. However, she stored it upside down for over 24hrs to allow the product to go down.

All in all, this is a great product that is definitely worth spending under $7. The color, longevity and ability to create a precise line is incredible!

Let me know what you guys think of this product if you have tried it or plan on trying it.

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!

Tips for Quick Makeup Look

Sometimes we just don’t have time in the morning to do a full face of makeup! It happens to me all the time so I found a way to look nice and refreshed while only spending about 3 minutes and using 4 items!

Here I am with no makeup. (Yikes!)

Here are the products I used:

Maybelline Colossal:

I’ve talked about this mascara before and will continue to say how wonderful it is! Putting on mascara will really open up your eyes and make you look refreshed!

Revlon Photo Ready Concealer:

This concealer has been working great for me so obviously it is something that I use almost daily. The coverage is great but it’s not heavy! It also adds some bightens yet conceals any under eye dark circles!

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder:

Great for a quick sweep of bronzer and blush all in the same container. Using this will really sculpt your face and it’s really quick to apply!

NYX Color Lip Balm:

I finished off the look with a lip balm that provides color and moisture in one tube!

Here is the final look!

I look refreshed and ready for a wonderful day.

Hope you guys enjoyed this!

This weekend I’m in Orlando to see my boyfriend and as I was packing I thought about being really good with the amount of makeup I took! On this particular trip, I was only taking a carry on just because I didn’t want to trot around with a huge bag for just one weekend. I went light on my makeup bag with which is pretty impressive and I’m pretty happy with myself! I also knew that I would go shopping so downsizing the amount of clothes wasn’t that hard.

In this post, I will share with you all what I take in my makeup bag for one weekend.

Is this a good list or should I have taken less? Tell me about how you all travel!

Concealer!

Good Morning everyone and Happy Monday!

I got a request from MommyHoodtoTheHeart to highlight some concealers that have been good to me and I have 2 that I have been using that I feel confident enough to share and recommend with you all!

Cover Girl Simply Ageless Concealer

This has been the concealer that I have been using for months and I have been thoroughly impressed by it. I got it for a littler over $12 so it was a pretty pricey but the pot it comes in has a lot of product and it has lasted me quite a while. I use my finger and pat it lightly under my eyes and it works really great. I always make sure to put the powder I use that day to set it, therefore it will last much longer throughout the day. It also works great with any blemishes that need coverage. My favorite part about this concealer is the way it blends so gracefully!

Revlon Photo Ready Concealer

This has been my newest concealer purchase as I mentioned in my first ever blog post! I got this in a darker shade for the summer since I will probably get a little bit of color. I have not used this concealer as long as the Cover Girl but so far, so good. This is a thicker consistency than the Cover Girl concealer but still blends very well and offers pretty full coverage. I really like that it’s in a stick instead of a pot because the application is a little easier. I also got this on a really good deal, so always look out for a deal since it runs for almost $13 at some places.

All in all, both concealers are great! It depends on your preference. Do you prefer a stick or a pot container? As I mentioned, watch out for deals since they can both run more than $10 at some stores. The name of the concealers have links to pretty good deals so check those out!

Here is a picture of me with no makeup and one with each of the concealers on!

Although I have these two, there are still a few concealers I have been wanting to try!

Benefit Erase Paste

MAC Studio Finish Concealer

Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

Hope this was helpful! What are you favorite concealers!?
