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

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. 

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.

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.!
