March 2016 Boxycharm

  
As always I am super impressed with this months Boxycharm.! Makeup Geek shadows are my favorite and I’m so happy to have a couple new ones to add to my stash.  

This months theme was sweet treats so there’s lots of pinks and sweet smells going on in this little box.

  

 
 I’m really excited to try out this hydromilk for my ridiculously dry skin.

I also got a brow pencil, a contour brush, and some perfume that I’ve never heard of but that smells really good so I’ll probably be using it on the regular.

Seriously each month Boxycharm gets better and better, if you haven’t signed up yet go do it.!!

 

Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Lippies

  I picked these up because the packaging is adorable, and I thought the girls would like the containers. They have little mirrors inside. Hard Candy has always been a bit a bit of a kid brand to me but the sleek design of these Lippies is a big step up for them in my opinion.
  
Pictured: Dahlia, Dafodil, and Sweet Pea. Also pictured vertically Dose Of Colors in Mood because I realized i had a perfect dupe.

These lippies are super pigmented, go on smooth, feel really comfy on, and they smell really good. For 6$ at Walmart these are a steal and I think this brand is going a really good direction. I’m actually exited to try more of their new stuff. They do dry pretty matte, but aren’t drying which is fine with me and to be expected with a mouse style Lippie. Over all in really impressed.!

  

Milk Makeup Haul + Swatches

Milk Makeup Haul + Swatches

So I found a new brand to learn and love.

Milk Makeup
I fell in love with their packaging, and just had to make an order.

  
My haul before taking them out of their packaging. I like that they aren’t in boxes, and are instead in sleek containers. I kept them because I can see reuses in their future.

Today I used the bronzer in Baked

The highlighter in Lit

And a lip/ cheek combo in Swish

I didn’t take any makeup pictures today because I’ve been all over the place and in the rain, but I loved these products. I did do some swatches for you guys though.! 

I especially liked the bronzer, I used it to contour today and was really impressed by the pigment as well as how blendable it was. It will probably be an everyday product from here on out.

   

 

I can’t wait to try everything I got from this brand, and to buy more. So far I’m impressed and I think they’re an awesome (as well as modern,) company. Over half of their products are vegan and they are cruelty free. They use natural oils which I LOVE, and they all require minimal effort and are made to be able to use on the go, or for those days you’re in a hurry. If you’re a mom like me you have those days more often than you don’t, but it’s nice to be able to feel put together without wasting precious time.

I have really high hopes for this brand.

 Oh also their brow pencils are names Pale Ale, Pilsner, and Dark Brew.. If nothing else had me sold that sure got this beer lovers attention.! 

My haul out of their packages.

 

More to come on this brand soon.!

Today’s Makeup 3.7.16

  
Sorry I’ve been away guys. My kiddos have been sick one after the other, and it’s been a hectic couple weeks. Today I finally wore makeup, so I wanted to post about some details that I’ve been loving.

   

 
I ordered The Balm Cosmetics, Smoke Balm off amazon because I love their packaging and products and love trying new stuff from them. I used it today for the first time and the colors are super pigmented, go amazingly together, AND you can use the color flame as a highlighter as well. That’s what I did today and I’m really just loving this palette. If you’ve never tried The Balm Cosmetics you really should check them out. Their Mary Loumanizer highlighter is  my go to highlighter, and everything I’ve tried from them so far I have loved.
