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!

April Favorites!

Happy May everyone! Flowers are blooming, the sun is out and it’s time to share my favorite items for the past month of April!

Some of these have been my favorites for a while now but since this is my first time doing this, I’ll share them 🙂

Garnier Smoothing Milk

I’ve been using this product for quite a while and I love it! I use it whether I’m going to straighten or curl my hair. It leaves the hair with a nice shine but not oily. It also smells great! The bottle bring a lot of product so they usually last me a while.

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden

Thanks to my wonderful cousin, I was able to try this primer and I realized that everyone has always been right about the amazing quality of all these Primer Potions. I am very impressed by the amount of lasting ability it lets my eyeshadow have. I also really like the matte formula because it dries quickly and creates a great base for the eye shadow I apply.

MAC Russian Red

For a while I had been using the NYX Lip Creams and had forgotten about my precious MAC lipsticks until I decided to dust off my Russian Red and fell in love with it all over again. I can’t say enough good things about this lipstick because you guys already know that it’s one of my favorites! It’s great for a lot of skin tones and it looks great! If you’re looking for a great red color, give this one a try!

ELF Studio Brush and Bronzer Duo

This blush and bronzer duo is great! Especially for $3, you can’t beat it. The pigmentation is great and I’ve heard a lot of people say that it is a dupe for Nars! It does have shimmer so be careful with it! I contour with a matte blush and then apply this duo on top.

Wet & Wild Ultimate Brow Kit

Now I don’t tend to fill in my eyebrows very often but sometimes I feel like I have a few spots that need help or sometimes I cut a little too much hair and have gaps! I use the middle color and it works just fine! I stay away from the dark color since my hair is a little lighter. The gel is ok, not my favorite but for traveling, it works.

That’s all for my April favorites! Hope you all enjoyed it 🙂

Comment below what some of you favorites where!

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.
