Boxy Charm July 2016

As always I’m impressed by boxy charm. What did I do with my life before the subscription box again.?? 

Unfortunately one of the eyeshadows broke along the way so it’s not pictured, but all of this is gorgeous, and I’m loving the lip gloss color more than anything. A bit different from my usual tastes but it’s gorgeous.!!

Also I have to apologize for being absent on here this past month. I had surgery on my ears almost 6 weeks ago which has been pretty rough recovery-wise, but I’m finally feeling a bit more myself, and I’m working on some pretty big things beauty-wise. More to come on that in the following months!! 

Naked Basics Dupe

From left to right: UD Crave, w7 Cargo, w7 Katie, UD Faint

I’ve really come to love this brand, I have every W7 palette now that I picked this one up this morning. It lasts just as long as UD when used with setting spray, and the formula is great, in this particular palette I prefer the feeling of the W7 over UD, it seems softer and more buttery. 

May ’16 Boxycharm 


Loving this months boxy charm.! This month included a perfume (smells amazing, and I’m not really a perfume person,) a makeup geek blush, I’ve been dying to try these so I’m really excited about that one.! A nail polish in a teal color, a lip liner, a double ended eyeliner which is AWESOME.  I’ve got to get it in black, and last but not least a brow gel which I have used the past two days, and LOVE. I think it’s my new favorite, really lightweight but keeps my brows in place all day, great for glam makeup or even on days you’re wearing none and just want to tame your brows. I’ll definitely be repurchasing it.! The only thing I don’t like is the nail polish, but if you know me you know I don’t do colors other than the occasional light pink.! Once again I’m so satisfied with this months box. If you’re looking for a way to try out new makeup I SERIOUSLY recommend this subscription box.

This months box had 106$ of product for just 21$.!

Review: Wet n Wild MegaGlo Palette


I had to run into cvs today and decided to check if they had wet n wilds new highlighters, (they don’t,) but I did decide to pick this baby up. So glad I did.! The old version of this palette was wayyy too colorful for my tastes but this one is perfect. As always the pigment that Ive grown to expect from wet n wild was right at my expectations if not exceeding them. 


This doesn’t do it justice at all. I shouldn’t taken this outside for better light but had an angry baby at my feet so this will have to do. I was initially worried about the color lasting since it quickly wore off my hand, but once on my face on top of makeup it set so well and lasted all day, even through a couple hours at the pool. 




I’m wearing the lightish gold color here, and it’s just so gorgeous. These are a bit on the shimmery side of highlighters, but I love glitter and glam and all things highlight, I don’t discriminate, they’re all beautiful to me.  Excuse my under eyes, I went without concealer today, wasn’t planning on making a post but this super cheap (under 5$) palette deserved a review. If you’re new to highlighting and just want to test the waters without too much commitment this is for you. If you’re like me and just addicted to highlighting in general this is a great addition to your collection. Seriously for this price you can really go wrong. Thank you wet n wild, for always blowing me away with your amazing + affordable products. Now PLEASEEEEE get some of your new highlighters in stock near me.!! I’m dying to see their beauty.

Boxycharm April 

  
I’m always wondering how I ever made it through life without boxycharm. I feel like a little kid around the middle of the month waiting on my box to come in.!! 

This month was #BoxyChanceOfCharms and included an eyelash primer, a loose eyeshadow in SUCH a pretty color, a daily lip nourisher, an Ofra liquid lipstick in “Pasadena,” and a hand cream that smells AMAZING. I have yet to recieve anything that I haven’t loved, and this is my favorite way to try new things that I’ve never heard of and probably wouldn’t have tried otherwise. 

Boxycharm you never let me down. Keep doing what you’re doing. 

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.!

  

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.
