Monthly Favorites: August 2014

IMG_20140830_110942834

August went by way too fast! I can’t honestly believe it is September 1st today (or September 5th, when I post this). August was a busy month for me, especially with starting a new job. I know I haven’t been blogging much lately, so why not come back with a monthly favorites post!

BEAUTY FAVORITES

1) Lorac Pro 2 Palette
When I first saw that Lorac was coming out with a new palette I wasn’t quite sure on if I would want to pick it up or not. I do have the original palette which I do love, but I always forget about using that palette. Well with seeing reviews and some beauty blogger’s creations with this palette, I decided to pick it up with my 20% coupon. I really love the cool tone hues in it and of course the fun colors included. The packaging is the same as the original palette, except this one is gray. The palette is very thin and sleek with a magnetic closure and a mirror as well. The shadows are nice and soft, but powdery. So all you need is a light touch otherwise your palette will be a mess. But, that doesn’t bother me too much because I love how soft they are.

2) Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette
Another palette in my monthly favorites! Well…why not? I do love myself some eye-shadow palettes. Too Faced came out with a couple new palettes for the Fall collection, but I decided on this one. This palette is a Sephora exclusive, whereas the Country and Rock & Roll palettes are Ulta exculsives. There was just something about the colors in this palette that made me grab it off the shelf at Sephora. Too Faced is one of my favorite makeup brands, and I feel like this palette doesn’t disappoint. I do wish that Kitty Glitter was more pigmented, but in reality I think it completes the palette as a nice shimmer shade. I used the pink shades in the palette for a nice pink look and then added kitty glitter for some extra shimmer.  With Too Faced shadows once you get past the first layer the shades become more pigmented, especially with Kitty Glitter. In the picture below I am wearing Kitty Glitter to add some extra shimmer.

3) Glo~Minerals Water Resistant Mascara
I have a love-hate relationship with mascara! I seem to be never satisfied with mascara and end up trying new ones all the time. I don’t understand the hype of Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara or Benefit They’re Real mascara. I just hate the application process whether it be too wet, too dry, too clumpy, too sticky, etc. Also, it is hard to find a mascara that keeps my stick straight lashes curled. Also, I like to use more natural nourishing mascaras. A lot of the drug store mascaras and even a lot of the high end mascaras use tar in their formula. I hate the feeling of lashes not feeling like lashes after application. I don’t need my lashes to feel/look like a statue because I decided to coat some tar on them. That is not good for lashes! Sorry end of rant! My salon started carrying this Glo Minerals brand and she recommended that I try this mascara after hearing about my love-hate relationship with mascara. This mascara does not have tar in it so I was happy to hear that. The mascara brush is amazing and so easy to use! I can use the brush vertical and horizontally and coat the lashes. No clumps! No spidery looking lashes either. The formula has the perfect wetness needed. I hate those super wet formulas where it takes 10 millions years to dry! Not for me! Also, my lashes feel like lashes. I have been really impressed with this mascara. I am wearing this mascara in the picture above.

4) Naked 3 Dual Ended Eyeliner Pencil
I love my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette quite a bit! I am always grabbing for it in my makeup collection. When I saw they had a dual sided 24/7 glide on eye pencil dedicated toward the Naked 3, I knew I needed to pick it up. It comes with the shades Darkside and Blackheart. I especially love the Blackheart shade because I love the red shimmer in it. Urban Decay’s eyeliner pencils are my favorite out of all the brands that I have tried. Sure, I have to sharpen them, but no big deal. I just love the creaminess of them and how easy they are to use. I am always grabbing for this eyeliner especially when I use my Naked 3.

5) Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Luster and Texture Brush
I also got this shimmer brick and brush at my local salon. I just wanted something that would give me a natural glow during the summer months. I was recommended by the Glo-Minerals rep to try this. I love it! I can just slightly dust it onto my cheeks and it gives me a healthy glow. It comes with 4 shades in the pan, but I just swirl all 4 shades together with the texture brush. This brush is super soft and it works really well with the application process. I have a Sigma brush like this, but I like this one quite a bit more. It is dense, but not too dense. With that being said, it picks up the perfect amount of product.

6) Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Rollerball
I have always wanted a full sized (meaning not a rollerball) Marc Jacobs perfume, but I always say no because of the price tag! I love the packaging on his perfumes! Every single one! Especially his newest ones: Daisy Dream, Honey, and Dot. This is my first rollerball from Marc Jacobs as well. I just loved this scent, but couldn’t reason spending the price tag for the full perfume right now. It is nice because I can take it with me because it is travel friendly. I can’t describe the scent very well, but it is very clean and floral smelling. Just go into Sephora or Ulta and see if you like it because everybody has different opinions. But, I quite like it. 🙂 Also, my cousin was here this weekend and she had a rollerball in Honey and omg…amazing! I think that may be the one I get when I get a full sized perfume because the packaging is ADORABLE!

LIFESTYLE FAVORITES (Movies, Books, Games, and Food)

IMG_20140830_111801110

1) The Amazing Spiderman 2
I ❤ Spiderman. This is honestly my favorite out of all the Spiderman movies (including the originals as well). I think that the cast did an amazing job. The story line kept my attention.

2) The Count of Monte Cristo 
This is not necessarily a monthly favorite, but my all time favorite movie. I just wanted to share it with you all because you NEED to watch it. It is a little slow in the beginning, but believe me it is amazing. There are many themes in the storyline: friendship, love, betrayal, and revenge.  This is based off of a book written by Alexandre Dumas in 1844. Trust me, go watch it.

3) Aladdin 
Aladdin is a good childhood memory of mine. I always loved that movie. I still do! I may be 25, but there is always some room for Aladdin, Jasmine, Genie, Abu, and of course Rajah in my life. Even before hearing that Robin Williams died, I had watched this a few days prior. Genie is one of my favorite characters in this movie. Robin Williams will be missed.

4) Mario Kart 8 
My niece recently came over and we had fun playing this game. I am a big Nintendo fan and one of my favorite games for any Nintendo game system has been Mario Kart. My niece had so much fun playing this game with me.

5) If I Stay Book and Movie
I started this book and was about halfway through it when my friend and I went to the movie. I finished the book afterwards. It was an easy read. Sure, the movie was a little predictable, but it was still a good movie.  Oh how I wish that I could play the cello like that because that was pretty amazing. This book makes a person think about life and how fast it can be changed. Well, it sure made me think about it. Every second in life is important and it is important not to take that for granted. Right now I am reading the second book, “Where She Went.”

6) Trader Joes Chocolate Covered Powerberries
Usually I hate dark chocolate, but in these I love it! They’re sweetened with natural fruit juices such as: acai, pomegranate, blueberry, and cranberry juices. Then they’re covered with smooth dark chocolate. All I can say is….yum!

7) Young & Hungry

I love love love love this show! It makes me laugh! I love those type of shows. This show is aired on ABC Family. The characters in it are awesome together and I just love it.

That concludes this month’s monthly favorites! Comment and let  me know if you have tried any of the products mentioned or if you watch any of the movies or shows I mention. Also, don’t forget to check out the movie “The Count of Monte Cristo.” Hope you all had a wonderful August and have a wonderful September.

Monthly Favorites: July 2014

IMG_20140723_181905226

Can it really be time for JULY of 2014 Favorites?!? Next month is August of 2014?!? Really?!! Didn’t we just celebrate News Years of maybe….2010 or 2007?!? I just want to slow down time because I am enjoying my summer and with it being August soon that means Fall is around the corner.

I have been loving quite a few things this month, but I decided on these 6 lovely products! Hope you enjoy!

1) INSTAIN Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush in Argyle
If you have been following me on Instagram you may have seen a photo of my haul from The Balm. I was visiting my cousin in South Dakota and we were at Kohls and my jaw dropped because I didn’t know that Kohls carried The Balm. I have only gotten The Balm products online so I was excited to be able to see them in person. I decided on this lovely blush (also got a nail polish and a lip-gloss) and I am glad that I decided to pick it up because it is a gorgeous light pink shade. The Balm blushes are super pigmented and blendable. Also, isn’t the packaging just amazing?

2) tarte Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation in light beige and airbuki bamboo powder foundation brush

I have been using this foundation since it came out. This was actually my first foundation that I ever bought. True story. I never wore foundation previous to that. But, then again I didn’t get into makeup until around age 21. But, as I am getting older my face has some redness. It covers my redness up without any issue and gives me a flawless finish. After using this for awhile, I decided that I wanted to try a liquid foundation…well because…I have never tried one before. I have used it for awhile and do like that one too. But, I just missed my powder foundation. I recently repurchased this foundation at a recent Ulta haul and have been loving it once again! The application is super easy, especially with the airbuki brush, which came out at the same time as the foundation. The brush fits perfectly in the foundation’s packaging. There is a mesh cover that I press my brush against to get the perfect amount of foundation on my brush. Also, when the foundation cover is on the product stays put instead of spilling all over due to its design. I also love tarte because they’re more natural and are cruelty free. My mom used to use Clinique’s foundation. I even got her to switch to this and she has noticed a huge difference with her oily skin. So yes, this foundation is both good for dry to oily skin, and of course normal skin.

3) tarte colored clay CC primer in light

Dark circles have been known to be genetic, so I probably can never get them to go away fully. Thanks family! My alternating shifts don’t help matters either, so I am always trying to find the next big thing to help cover up those panda eyes. When I was at Ulta with my cousin, she recommended that I try this product. She stated that it helps her with her dark circles. I am really glad that I gave this product a go because I love it! I just apply this over my under-eyes and blend before adding any foundation. I also do add some concealer as well, but this primer has really helped cover up those unwanted dark circles. The product itself is very creamy and easy to blend into the skin. The only thing is that it was quite pricey, but tarte in itself is quite pricey.

4) The Balm Read my Lips Lip Gloss in the shade Zaap!

Here is that lip-gloss that I got in my The Balm haul from Kohl’s. I am quite impressed with this lovely lip-gloss. It has to probably be one of my favorites I’ve ever tried. It is creamy, pigmented, but not sticky. It does need to be reapplied throughout the day, but that doesn’t bother me. I would rather have to reapply than to have it be sticky. The more sticky a lip gloss is, the more long lasting. This shade is gorgeous! It can be applied more sheer to the lips or it can be applied more opaque as well. This lip-gloss does have a pleasant fruity scent. I do like the packaging. I wish I had a picture of the outer box that it came in because The Balm has amazing packaging. Overall, I am quite impressed with this lip-gloss and want to try more colors from this collection.

5) Sleek i-Divine Garden of Eden Palette 

I got this palette from Jacquelyn from The Little Scottish Corner in our beauty swap. I have been really loving this Sleek palette this month because green is one of my favorite colors.  Purple is my all time favorite color and a few pinkish-purple shades are included in this palette as well. This palette is just gorgeous and it reminds me of nature and being outside. This palette comes with both shimmery and matte shades. I love the shimmery shades quite a bit. They’re super pigmented and blendable. I plan on doing a more detailed review coming soon!

Here is an Instagram photo of a look that I created using this palette…

6) Sephora and Pantone Universe Rush Luster Cheek Sweep

I saw this on clearance at Sephora recently. Once again, I blame Coffee Break with Dani on YouTube for this purchase because she raved about it. I can totally understand why. These are honestly the softest blushes I have ever had the chance of trying out. They’re amazingly pigmented, the swatches down below are just one swipe of the finger. They’re so buttery soft and just plain right amazing. I really enjoy the first shade, the third shade in the palette is pretty bold so I haven’t given that shade a chance quite yet. But, the first blush shade is GORGEOUS and it is a favorite of mine.

Lancaster Vanilla and Caramel Soft Cremes

I recently saw these at Target and decided to give them a try. I am so glad that I decided to pick them up because they’re so delicious! They are super soft and just amazing! I recommend trying them if you’re a fan of caramels.

That concludes July’s monthly favorites! Comment and let me know if you have tried any of these items. What did you think of the items I included in my favorites! Comment and let me know! I love hearing from you!

New Mac Collection Alert: The Simpsons

Growing up with only brothers, I sure watched a lot of The Simpsons. To celebrate their 25th Anniversary, Mac Cosmetics is coming out with a Marge Simpson themed collection. I honestly only have 2 items from Mac Cosmetics (Mac Fix + and a lipstick from the Alluring Aquatic Collection), so I don’t know much about the brand. I do know that they’re always coming out with new collections all the time. But, this collection really excites me. 😀 I will defiantly be checking it out when it officially comes out! I know I want the blush and a lip-gloss out of the collection. I also included a YouTube video from aLoveTart explaining more about this exciting collection. Comment and let me know what you think of this collection. Do you watch The Simpsons? What items from the collection do you want?

Sigma Beauty Smoke Screen Palette Review

eye shadow Sigma Beauty is well known for its makeup brushes, but not as commonly known for their makeup line in the beauty world. Although, I think that Sigma Beauty is getting more and more into the makeup world with them bringing out more and more palettes, blushes, lip-glosses, and even lately gel eyeliners. I was quite impressed with their previous palette which is called, Warm Neutrals,  so when they came out with this Smoke Screen palette, I knew I had to pick it up. If you’re interested on my review of the Warm Neutrals palette you can find that here. Both palettes are still available online and at Sigma Beauty. Sigma Beauty’s flagship store is at Mall of America so I always have to stop in whenever I am at MOA.

What Sigma Beauty says about this palette, “The Sigma Beauty Smoke Screen Eye Shadow Palette features 12 different shades and finishes with cool undertones, perfect that give the ability to transform your look from desk to dancing. Each shade is represented by sophisticated neutrals to bold brights offset by dark, dusty hues. Paraben-free.” More information found here

Price: $39.00

PACKAGING

The Smoke Screen palette comes with the same look and feel as the Warm Neutrals palette. It comes with an outer white sleeve that I already threw away. I don’t see a point in keeping it.

IMG_1304

Here is the back of the outer sleeve showing the colors shades, the ingredients, and amount of product included.

IMG_1305

The actual palette itself is nice and sturdy. I really like the sleek look of it. The Sigma logo makes it look nice and high quality. The palette does have a magnetic closure.

IMG_1306

This is what the back of the palette looks like. It shows the shades, amount of product, and that it was made in China.

IMG_1312

It comes with a nice sized mirror, but the mirror does not stay up by itself.

IMG_1307

Overall, I am quite impressed with the packaging. I do like that they went with the same packaging look as with the Warm Neutrals palette.

THE EYE SHADOWS

This palette has an amazing array of colors and finishes. I do not have any other palettes quite like this. This palette is perfect for creating smokey eye looks. They also included some fun shades like the lavender shade and of course the amazing blue shade. Nobody says that smokey eyes can’t be fun! 😀 Each shadow is imprinted with Sigma Beauty which I think is cool, but over time that disappears.

IMG_1646

FORMULA & MY THOUGHTS I love this palette because I find it to be very unique. It has quite a few different shades that I have never seen in other palettes. Some of my favorites shades include: nebula, opulent, svelte, and rave. Nebula is pretty amazing and I loved using it in my look down below. Also, I think that Svelte is super unique with its olive tones. The formula is just like the Warm Neutrals one. I feel like they have improved their formula quite a bit compared to some previous palettes of theirs. The shadows are very easy to work with. They’re very pigmented, blendable, and soft. They’re aren’t powdery which is nice, but some of the glittery shades have a little fall-out. Pros

  • Highly pigmented
  • Easy to work with
  • Sturdy packaging
  • Unique and fun shades
  • Paraben free!

Cons

  • Price, although I don’t personally think it is all that bad compared to other palettes out on the market.
  • Mirror doesn’t stand up
  • Glittery shades have some fall-out
  • Not available in a lot of stores so hard to find unless purchasing online.

Kat Von D Monarch Eye Shadow Palette Review

eye shadow

I blame YouTube and Kat Von D herself for me buying the butterfly eye shadow palette collection. Awhile back, Sephora’s YouTube channel had released a video of Kat Von D herself introducing her two new palettes. The two palettes from this collection are called Monarch and Chrysalis. If you have been following me, it may be no surprise to you that I love palettes. So I had to jump on the opportunity to purchase them. I first will be doing the Monarch palette review and then soon after I will be doing the Chrysalis review.

A SEPHORA OVERVIEW
All information down below in italics can be found on the Sephora site found here.

What it is: An alluring, warm-toned eyeshadow palette with a stunning composition of colors—three large base shades and nine transformative accent hues—for a spectrum of stunning eye looks. 

What it does: From delicate to daring, experience a rebirth of color and explore endless eye looks with the Monarch Eyeshadow Palette. Featuring warm-toned shades in an ingenious arrangement that gives you the biggest basics and the most accent hues, now you’ll have the freedom to create your heart out without running out of the go-to colors. Relish in the luxurious texture of triple-milled powder, which picks up instantly and lays down with a one-sweep, full-coverage application. The patented Power Last™, long-wearing formula gives you buildable, from dawn-to-dusk drama, while an infusion of antioxidants including rose extract and vitamins A, C, and E all work to keep your eyelids hydrated and protected. 

What else you need to know: Inspired by the metamorphosis of the butterfly, Kat created this palette to give you endless ways to transform your eyes every day. The palette is decorated with original artwork derived from her love of butterflies—a symbol of rebirth and renewal. Follow Kat’s tutorials for tips and inspiration.

PACKAGING

Something about Kat Von D’s palettes are they all have amazing packaging!  With Kat Von D being an artist herself, she of course designs her own palettes covers. You can tell that she spends a lot of time perfecting each and every detail of her design. This palette cover is probably one of my favorites of the ones I have seen of her brand. I love butterflies! I even have a tattoo of a butterfly. I feel like a butterfly symbolizes freedom because it has the ability to fly wherever it wants to. Maybe, that sounds cheesy, but that is what my tattoo symbolizes to me. Anyway, the cover has a monarch butterfly on it as you can see in the photo below. The cover to this palette is so very her, especially since she added the skulls to the end of the butterfly wings. The back of the palette has a lot of detail in it as well because on each side of the names there is the same butterfly wings. This palette feels very sturdy and does have a magnetic closure. I know I heard a lot of people were upset that it wasn’t her usual tin packaging. Well, I actually like this cardboard type of packaging over her normal tin. The inside of the palette has a nice sized mirror which isn’t that important to me because I never use those mirrors. But, it would be nice for travel purposes.

IMG_20140506_164334699

IMG_20140506_164427340

PRICING AND SIZE

The price of this palette is $46.00 which is expensive, but most palettes from Sephora are around that price range. That is because it is more of a “prestige” brand. Also, remember that this is a Sephora only exclusive brand. You can either buy it in store or online. Also, with the always moving makeup industry this palette won’t be available for much longer. I assume she is working on her next palette by now. It is crazy that some makeup brands are already bringing out Fall 2014 collections! Aaaahhh…. slow down! It is still Summer!

On the back of the palette it says, “Keep your look ever-changing, highlight eyes with 3 textural bases and accentuate with 9 transformative colors.” According to Sephora the amount of shadows included are: 3 x 0.095 oz and 9 x 0.049 oz. Those are pretty nice sizes if you ask me. More information found here

THE SHADES
This palette comes with a bunch of different finishes and shades. This is a very warm toned palette with brown, gold, copper, and orange shades. This palette has shimmery, pearl, and matte finishes as well. Because of that, there is a multitude of looks that a person could come up with using this palette.  I am horrible at describing colors, so I am showing you the descriptions off of Sephora’s website for each of the shades. I would try and describe them, but I feel like the most important part of the review is the use and ease of the shadows.

Textural Bases

  1. entomology: matte cream
  2. telopathy: pearl gold
  3. tiny death: glitter cream

IMG_20140506_164359089   IMG_20140508_141410488

FORMULATION

What I love about eye shadow is each makeup brand has a different formulation for their shadows. Some are better than others and some are more expensive than others as well. But, pricing doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Something that I noticed about the formula from this palette is that they’re super soft. Due to the softness, it makes them very powdery.  If you put too much on your brush the shadow will go everywhere. So what I recommend is a light hand. With that being said, I really do enjoy the formula. The shadows being powdery does not bother me at all because they’re soft and easy to work with. It does have some fall out so usually I do my foundation afterwards. But, the fallout isn’t terrible either. The shadows are super pigmented so only a little amount is needed. My favorite shades are the first 3 of the tranformative shadows: wrath, papillo, and summerfly. Using those shadows creates a gorgeous look! Another thing that I love about this palette is that it is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. That is a big time pro for me!  I think that this palette is perfect for Fall, but in all reality could be used all year around.

PROS

  • Gorgeous and unique packaging
  • Softness of shadows
  • Pigmentation
  • Only need a tiny amount so palette will last a long time
  • Size/amount of shadows included
  • Study palette with mirror included
  • Paraben, sulfate, and phthlate free
  • Made in the USA

CONS

  • Price
  • Powdery
  • Limited Edition
  • Only available through Sephora

A RANDOM FOTD

IMG_20140508_152030862

Overall, I highly recommend picking up this palette if you get the chance. This is such a fun warm toned palette and I have had a lot of fun creating looks using it. So far, I am quite impressed with Kat Von D’s makeup brand. Recently, I picked up one of her blushers so that review will be coming up soon. Comment down below if you have this palette or are thinking about picking it up. I love reading your comments!

My US/UK Box Swap with The Little Scottish Corner!

Jacquelyn from the amazing blog, “The Little Scottish Corner” and I decided that we would do a box swap. We had been talking about doing one for awhile and the time has finally come. It of course, takes forever to send international packages, but it actually came faster than I expected. I hate the wait and the agony on wondering if the contents sent will make it over the ocean without being broken by the postal service. Also, make sure to check out her blog here and check out all the items that I sent her!

Yay! Bubble wrap! Thankfully, both our packages made it to each other in one piece. 😀

IMG_20140613_123316910

My initial reaction! :O Jacquelyn sure got me a lot of candy! She must know that I have a sweet tooth!

IMG_20140613_123406053

CANDY

Aren’t you just mesmerized by this picture?!? So many yummy goodies! I got quite a variety here. She sent me a bunch of amazing deliciousness from: Cadbury, Throntons, Green & Blacks, Hotel Chocolat, M&S, and many more. I will be doing a review on all these goodies once I eat them all up. I really wish that we had Percy Pigs in the US, they’re so yummy. Jacquelyn even got me the panda version of Percy Pigs because she knows how much I love pandas. 🙂

IMG_20140613_123713677

Jacquelyn sure took the time to individually wrap each item in adorable wrapping paper. Also, more bubble wrap. 😀

IMG_20140613_123814263

MAKEUP

Palettes

If you have been following my blog, you know that I love makeup palettes. Eyeshadow is my favorite makeup item and I love playing with the variety of colors and finishes. I was really excited to see a palette from Barry M because I hear a lot of good things about this brand. This smokey palette is called Smokin’ Hot Shadow & Blush Palette. Jacquelyn stated she wanted to include something for all seasons. 🙂 The second palette I got was from the new makeup brand called Makeup Revolution. Jacquelyn says that this is a new brand sold in the UK. This palette has an amazing array of colors, and I can’t wait to use it.  My last box swap that I did was with Stephanie Wright here on WordPress and she sent me a Sleek palette as well. I requested another Sleek palette in my box swap with Jacquelyn and she got me the Garden of Eden, which is gorgeous!!!

IMG_20140613_142858108

I, of course, will be doing reviews on these lovelies!

IMG_20140613_143346910

 

Blushers

In the UK, they call them blushers instead of blush, which I find rather intriguing.  I got a Makeup Revolution blusher in a gorgeous pinky shade called Wow! Also, a blush BY 3 by the brand Sleek in Pumpkin. I have a coral blusher from Sleek that I adore that I got from Effie, and I was super stoked to get this blush BY 3 palette from Jacquelyn.

IMG_20140613_143446018 IMG_20140613_143528035

Lipies!

I was super excited to receive something from MUA, because I have seen many posts reviewing this brand. I got a MUA Power Pout Colour Intense Tint & Balm in Broken Hearted. These remind of the Clinique and Revlon chubby sticks. I really do enjoy chubby sticks because I think that they’re easier to apply than a lipstick. I also got a Makeup Revolution lipstick in the shade Encore.

IMG_20140613_143825078 IMG_20140613_143852650  

More Makeup Goodies…

I was excited to receive the Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals Foil Finish in Emerald Goddess because these remind me of the Stila foil finish metals. Stila charges an arm and a leg for their foil finish metal eyeshadows, so I have never tried those out. So these are a lot cheaper and I can’t wait to try them out. I do love the color green Jacquelyn, so no worries! I also got the Makeup Revolution Pure Pigment in Rivalry which is a gorgeous green shade. Since I have never really tried either one of these kinds of products before, it will be a makeup adventure that I look forward to checking out.

I was excited to receive another shade of the Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencil by Collection. I got the shade Vanilla Sky, which is very pretty and will make for a great base. I have the color Vintage Blush as well from my box swap with Effie.

This eyeliner pencil by MUA in Turquoise will be a fun summery shade. I will have to use this fun shade for a pop of color. I really like that it has a built in sharpener as well. 🙂

IMG_20140613_181928526

Another item I got is from Makeup Revolution and it is The ONE Concealer. This concealer reminds me a lot of the one from Benefit with the concealer in the middle surrounded by a hydration part. My under eyes get dry so I was excited to receive this. 🙂

I suffer from lashes that don’t like to curl, so I was super excited to try out this doll’d UP mascara by Seventeen. It promises to hold up to a 24 hour curl. I will put this mascara to the test! Probably not all 24 hours.The packaging is adorable!

IMG_20140616_161724888[1]

SKINCARE & HAIR

I got 2 items from the brand Sanctuary Spa which I can’t wait to use. The Intensive Shine Hair Butter looks amazing and I am really excited to try it out because my hair has been dry lately. Also, I am excited to try the salt scrub, because working as a nurse, I get a lot of dead skin on my hands, so this will hopefully  make them nice and smooth.

IMG_20140613_195244530

This is a homemade soap from Jacquelyn that she made with her mum. I thought it was super sweet of her to send along in our box swap because homemade things are always the best. I did read her post about this as well. It does smell lovely and smells very natural as well.

IMG_20140613_193148468

Oh how sweet of Jacquelyn to think of my hands. I can’t wait to try out this tea tree & peppermint deep moisturising hand pack. This sound lovely! Also, an Argan Oil deep moisturising  foot pack! 🙂 My heels always get so dry with working on my feet all the time at work. I am super ecstatic to try these out!

IMG_20140613_143932848

Yay a nail cream! I got the Elemis Sp@ home nail and hand cream. Anything to help my nails! They’re so fragile from all the constant hand washing at work. My hands get super dry as well so I look forward to using this as a hand cream as well. Jacquelyn states that it is used in a lot of spas. Also, she sent me an eye cream by Vitamin E Skin Care. Can’t wait to try this out as well because I always have a hard time finding an eye cream that is actually worthwhile.

IMG_20140613_144318332

This Apricot Exfoliating Mask looks amazing. Jacquelyn says that this is one of her favorite face masks so I can’t wait to try it out. I can’t wait to open it up and smell the scent of apricots.

IMG_20140613_144117600

NAILS

How sweet of Jacquelyn!! She said that since I was close to my nieces that I could use these Nail Rock designs from Frou Frou on their nails. How cute!!! It comes with a bunch of different little adorable bears.

IMG_20140613_143912052

A LITTLE EXTRA… Look at the adorable cat key chain and the cute little lion eraser. So cute!

IMG_20140613_201730069

My explanation letter of all the products included! Such cute stationary! 🙂

IMG_20140613_130514674

Thank you so much Jacquelyn for all the amazing products that you sent me! I had so much fun doing this box swap with you! It was a lot of fun picking out each individual item to send you.  🙂 I so far have tried most of the makeup products sent and have a ton more items left to try! I will be posting reviews off and on from this box swap! Comment and let me know what you would like me to review first. Once again, thanks Jacquelyn for all the wonderful goodies!

May 2014 Monthly Favorites: Beauty, Fashion, & Lifestyle!

May was sure a busy month! It flew by so fast, that I am still in shock that it is already June! Life has been pretty busy with work and moving out of my house. I have been neglecting the blogging side of things a little bit. 😦 Although, I did start a new blog during that time, so I don’t feel too neglectful! I had a hard time narrowing down what I wanted to include in my monthly favorites. I loved a lot of things this month! But, I do have quite a few monthly favorites that I want to share with you all! I hope you enjoy! Also, make sure to comment and let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think of them! I hope you enjoy!

MAKEUP & SKINCARE

IMG_20140605_160059920

Cindy-Lou Manizer from The Balm

What the Balm says, “An all-in-one essential, this smart shadow, beautiful blush and subtle highlighter is tucked inside a go-anywhere compact. The light-reflecting peachy pink hue adds a splash of color to your cheeks and a hint of shimmer to your lids, while illuminating your finest features.” Information found here

IMG_20140602_153927412

I haven’t had this beauty product for that long, but I really do like the shade. It can be used as a highlighter, shimmer, or a shadow. I use mine as a highlighter, it just gives the face a pretty peachy-pink highlight. I love the packaging as well! The Balm always gets an A+ on packaging in my book! I also have the Mary-Lou Manizer version of this, love that one as well. That one is more of a champagne shade. They’re both super pigmented so you only need a little bit!

Setting Brush by Real Techniques

What Real Techniques says, “The key to completing any look with a controlled dusting of powder or highlighter.”  More information found here.

IMG_20140602_153943797

This brush goes hand in hand with the monthly favorite described above. I use this brush for highlighting because I think that it is the perfect size. The brush is super soft and easy to use. RT brushes are also cruelty free which is important to me. This brush could also be used for blending out concealer.

The Body Shop Body Butter in Strawberry 

What The Body Shop says, “This rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and has a sweet strawberry scent. 24-hour hydration Great for normal to dry skin Sweet strawberry scent.” More information found here

IMG_20140605_232700735

This was my first purchase ever from The Body Shop. I am a HUGE fan of strawberries so I of course had to pick this one up. I actually ordered this mini body butter online so I didn’t get to test it out first. This stuff smells AMAZING! It is like strawberries on steroids! The body butter is nice and creamy and has the perfect thickness. It is perfect for during the day for a quick hand cream and it does help moisturize my hands. I usually use more of a thicker more moisturizing hand cream at night.

Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette

What Sephora says, “An alluring, warm-toned eyeshadow palette with a stunning composition of colors—three large base shades and nine transformative accent hues—for a spectrum of stunning eye looks. ” More information found here

IMG_20140605_160217707

I am in love with this palette! I love all the colors included. The shadows are super pigmented and just gorgeous!  I just find it to be a super unique palette, because it includes some shades that I have never seen before. The packaging is amazing and it is very fitting for Kat Von D and her personality. Well, it should be because she drew the palette design. I have 3 Kat Von D items from her line, which are all palettes. So far, I am quite impressed with her makeup line and I’m curious about her other makeup items. What products have you tried from her line?!? I don’t want to give out too much information about this palette. I have a review coming up on this palette and the sister palette Chrysalis, which is gorgeous as well!

Sigma Beauty Single Eye Shadow in Triomphe 

What Sigma Beauty says, “The Sigma Beauty Individual Eye Shadow Collection features a versatile assortment of shades and finishes from our best-selling eye shadow palettes.  Each eye shadow has a rich pigmentation and long-lasting wear. Mix and match for your favorite colors to create a customized collection.” More information found here

IMG_20140602_153828417

When I was at Mall of America a few months ago, I got this shadow for free with a purchase. I had a hard time deciding what shade to pick out! I decided on the shade Triomphe, which is a duo-chrome pewter. This shade is actually part of the Paris palette. This shade is super gorgeous and I love the duo-chrome finish to it. It is also pigmented and blends easily! This shade is perfect for the outer V and even could be used all over the lid for a more darker look.

Jamberry Nails!!!

This is probably my biggest monthly favorite! I have a love for having something pretty on my nails! Being a nurse my nail polish chips right away with constant hand washing. Meet the company Jamberry Nails! 😀 Basically these are high quality vinyl nail wraps, which is such a smart idea!  I have so far applied 2 different Jambicures and so far I love them! They don’t chip! They last a lot longer than any nail polish! My first Jambicure was Chalkboard Hearts and my second Jambicure was Flutter By. Flutter By was a May exculsive, I am glad that I got my hands on a sheet of this adorable butterfly design. I will be doing an actual review on these vinyl nails, so stay tuned for that!

FASHION

I loved this dress from Maurices this month! I paired it with my new madden girl sandals that I got at Famous Footwear! I really like how this outfit turned out. Also, I got the white little cardigan at Maurices as well. Surprise! Love that store!

IMG_20140523_174002506 IMG_20140523_180647

Here is another dress that I got at Maurices! 🙂 I paired it with that same white cardigan. I love this dress and I love the color orange! You can find this dress here.

IMG_20140518_094555

LIFESTYLE 

Movies

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
I really love the new Spider-man movies, along with a bunch of other people. Lol! I really like Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Personally, I think that this Spider-Man film has been the best Spider-Man movie so far (including the Tobey Mcquire ones)! There were funny parts in it and there were sad parts in it as well. Overall, I think that it was really well done. Comment and let me know if you have seen this movie.

Endless Love
Yes, this movie is a chic flick and a little cheesy, but I think it is adorable! There is nothing wrong with watching a “feel good movie.” Not everything has to be blood and gore and guts!

Games

Pikmin 3
Recently I sold my Iphone back to Best Buy in place of a gift card. I ended up getting the Nintendo Wii U. I have always been a fan of Nintendo with Yoshi being a favorite character of mine. It was a super nice deal,  I got a lot back for my Iphone! I got this game called Pikmin 3! I actually played the original Pikmin game back in the day on GameCube, with one of my good friends all the time. It is an all time favorite of mine! So fast forward to Pikmin 3, and I still love it! Although, with life being so busy, I haven’t been able to play it much. I figured it would be easier for me just to show you a preview of the game. I know some people probably think it is silly, but I love it! Aren’t the Pikmin adorable?!?

Shows

Revenge
Revenge has had its moments! Honestly, part of this season I wanted to quit watching this show. There was too many characters and I got lost with the story line. But, thankfully I kept watching because it all ended with the season finale! This season finale was intense! I can’t wait to see what happens! Comment and let me know if you watch Revenge.

Dancing with the Stars
I loved watching this show and I think that it was one of this best seasons of DWTS ever! I just think that they had a lot of good celebrities, which kept the show interesting. I watched Meryl & Charlie win the gold at the Olympics, that was a big reason why I watched this season more faithfully. I was happy to see Meryl and Maks win!

MIRYA, MADDIE, & MOLLY MONTHLY FAVORITES

If you want to see my pets monthly favorites then I suggest you check out my pet blog that I recently started called, “The HAPPY PAW Files.” I have a post about their paw approved monthly favorites going up at the same time as this one! I hope you subscribe and show Mirya, Molly, and Maddie some love! You can find that blog post here.

the happy paw files logo

That concludes this monthly favorites post! I hope you enjoyed reading this! Comment and let me know what you thought and if you have tried any of the products mentioned. Also, let me know if you have watched any of the shows or movies, or played Pikmin 3 as well!

Breaking the No Buy! :/

So yes, I went to Sephora with my sister in law. Bad idea! I broke my no-buy! Also, watching YouTube is a bad idea as well! I have been seeing videos on some new items that came out to Sephora. When I was shopping with my sis in law, they only had one of each left. The lady said they sold out super fast. So what wonderful items caused me to break my no buy? I’ll point out that a stipulation in my no buy was that it was okay to pick up limited edition items.

IMG_20140512_154410079

Kat Von D came out with these new palettes and when I saw there was only one of each left, I knew I had to pick them up. Yes, I know naughty me!

  • Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette
  • Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette
  • Beauty Blender in Limited Edition shade (color of the year)
  • Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

My lips have been crazy dry so I decided to give this lip mask a try. Also, I have never tried a beauty blender and I wanted something to help blend my concealer more easily.

I scored in some of my Sephora points for the rest of the items shown above.

  • Anastasia Brow Gel
  • NARS Beauty Insider which came with a blush, eye-shadow primer, lip gloss, and a highlighter. I have never tried Nars, so I was excited to get a few of their items. (I will do a review on this later)

Yup, so there was my Sephora haul!

Then, came the 50% The Balm sale! The Balm is my favorite makeup brand (along with Urban Decay). They randomly have flash sales for charities. Awhile back Mirya decided to chew up a favorite brush of mine that I had gotten from The Balm. I told myself after I found  the brush at its demise, I would wait for another 50% sale.

Yeah, apparently I want to meet Matt(e) nude because I didn’t stop at the brush.

IMG_20140512_152413438

  •  Meet Matt(e) Nude eyeshadow palette
  • Crease, Love & Happiness double sided brush
  • Brow Pow in light brown
  • Sample of Apple AHA Daily Face Moisturizer

So that concludes my haul. Yes, I know I’m naughty! I’m going to go ahead and say that it is for The Beauty Deputy Research.

Sephora +Pantone Universe Color of the Year Palette Review

I blame this purchase on Coffee Break with Dani! If you don’t know who she is, you need to check her out! Well, I watched one of her videos on this palette, and yeah, I had to get it! I got this palette during my huge haul a couple months ago. I know, you’re probably thinking, Brittany, another palette? Yes, palettes are my favorite makeup item and this one is totally different from anything that I have!

Each year Pantone Universe decides on a color and gives it the crown of being,  “the color of the year.” They then team up with Sephora and make an exclusive beauty collection dealing with that crowned color of the year. Some examples include: eye shadow palettes, blush palettes, lip products, and nail polish. This year, 2014, the color of the year is radiant orchid. I am in love with this color! It is a favorite color of mine. I think it would make a perfect bridesmaid dress shade. I’ll have to keep that is mind.

This palette is available at some Sephora stores and online. You can find it online here. The Sephora that I go to already is sold out, so I suggest ordering it right away if you want it! Remember it is exclusive and a limited edition!

 OUTER PACKAGING

The outer packaging is quite big, but the palette itself is quite big as well. That just means a lot of eye-shadows! 😀  I even got a big Sephora bag for this purchase! The outer sleeve slides off,  then there is a spot to place the finger to take the palette out of the package.

IMG_1415

The back of the outer packaging shown below. Continue reading for the description on the back of the packaging. “Lush, modern, feminine-and irresistibly versatile.

Setting a hypnotic tone for the seasons ahead, this limited edition Color of the Year Collection unfolds every dimension of its vivid appeal, from petal-sheer luminosity to widely rich pigments. Go boldly, tint softly, shade your appeal. Let its ravishing glow excite your artistry and exhilarate new looks in 2014 Define your femininity with Radiant Orchid.”

“Learn the most captivating ways to wear it on eyes-from smoldering strokes to blushing accents-with makeup luminary Aaron de Mey’s six styles of the moment. Designed by the master artist himself, each exclusively curated palette and shadow look plays up a different nuance of this potent hue. Shade, blend, explore.

PALETTE PACKAGING

I am in love with the packaging! I love the shade and I love how it has an ombre effect. The palette is very sturdy and sleek. Since it is a bigger palette, storage may be an issue. But, it doesn’t bother me because one day I will get the Alex 9 drawer and this palette will have a perfect home! The first time I opened this palette I thought I broke it! I looked further and noticed little knobs sticking out (I’ll post a photo below.) It does make a clicking sound every time this palette gets closed. All in all, love the packaging!

IMG_1417

A picture of the knob that I was talking about.

IMG_20140508_192505607

The back of the palette is nothing special. It shows all the color names, amount of eye shadows included, etc.

IMG_1418

The palette does include a huge mirror which I love! Also, the palette’s mirror does stay up which is a big pro! This palette comes with a loose clear sheet with the color quad names and the shade numbers. I have a few problems with how they did this. First of all, it would have been nice if they actually printed the quad names and shade names on the actual palette in little writing. But, instead the names of the quads and the numbers are on that clear sheet and the color names are on the back of the palette. My problem with that is now I need to keep that clear sheet because the quad names are not included on the back of the palette. Not sure why, but it just annoys me that the names can’t all be in one place. But, that is just me being nit-picky.

THE PREMISE OF THIS PALETTE

So this was a big selling point for me when buying this palette. This palette included 6 different quads and a radiant orchid shade on the bottom of the palette. The idea of this palette is to incorporate the color of the year shade into all of the 6 quads. This palette came with a look book as well to help get ideas. I really like all the ideas in this look book. When I saw this on Coffee Break with Dani, I knew I had to have it. The idea book has a lot of cute ideas and fun ones too! Although, all the ones below were of  my own creation.

THE QUADS & SHADES

Aren’t the colors gorgeous?!? Love it!

IMG_1424

Here is a picture of all the shades, except without the clear name sheet and with some use.

IMG_1696

*In all the looks that I created with this palette, I incorporated the color of the year into it, just like the premise of the palette.

CREAM DREAM

This is the lightest quad of them all. It makes for a very soft look. This is my least favorite quad, but all in all, it has a good array of shades.

Pink Champagne: matte nude
Peach Whip: shimmery peach
Almost Apricot: apricot shade with glitter
Fairy Tale: pale matte pink

Cream dream

RARE EARTH

This is a very neutral looking quad with a good variety of shades to make a complete look.

Dawn: matte light nude
Rose Cloud: rose pink with shimmer
Camel: matte chocolate brown
Rain Drum: shimmery medium bronze-brown

Rare earth

BIRD OF PARADISE

This is probably the most shocking out of all the quads, but it is my favorite! I think that it is super fun! I am in love with the shade Glacier.

Glacier: iridescent shimmery mint green-aqua blue
Blue Spruce: deep frosty forest green
Cendre Blue:  medium shimmery ocean blue
Ensign Blue: deep midnight blue

PicMonkey Collage

VENUS RISING

This quad has a nice array of shades. It isn’t a favorite of mine, but it is still wear-able.

Sheer Pink: matte off-white
Fudgesickle: maroon brown with shimmer
Vineyard Wine: matte wine shade
Mulberry Purple: a purplish-blue frosty shade

venus rising

PRIMAL FLOWER

The is my second favorite quad, because I love the shimmery gold shade. I also love the look that I created with this quad.

Cornsilk: a shimmery yellow gold
Toasted Almond: matte tan shade
Red Violet: shimmery cranberry
Deep Taupe: metallic deep brown taupe

Primal flower

MIDNIGHT ORCHID

What is a palette without a black shade? This quad you could make a light look with and you can make a darker look as well. I went for the darker look as you can tell in the picture.

Snow White: matte white
Silver: metallic silver
Quiet Shade: metallic gunmetal silver
Caviar: matte black

Midnight Orchid

RADIANT ORCHID

Of course, the lovely color of the year has the biggest pan, which makes a lot of sense! 🙂 I really love this shade and think it is a perfect radiant orchid. I would describe this shade as a matte raspberry with a slight frosty finish.

Radiant Orchid

FORMULA

This is my first time using Pantone Universe shadows and I am quite impressed with them. I love the softness and the blendability of the shadows. Since they’re super soft, the shadows do have some fall-out. The shades are super pigmented, especially the shimmery and frosty shades. The matte shades are also pigmented, which is a good thing!

OVERVIEW

I am in love with this palette because it’s so versatile. I can make a multitude of looks. Just because shades are in quads, doesn’t mean they can’t be mix-matched. With this palette, I have pinks, purples, greens, blues, and neutrals. I have mattes, shimmer, and frosty shades. If you have noticed, I love the premise of this palette 🙂 ! It is a ton of fun to incorporate the color of the year shade, radiant orchid, into the large array of quads shades. This palette can put people out of their comfort zone, because it is taking a shade that you might not necessarily pair with other shades, but believe me it is worth it. If they bring out another palette like this next year, with the color of the year for 2015 (aaah 2015, I’m getting old?!? Well, we’re all getting old-er!), I will definitely be picking it up!!  Remember, that this palette is a limited edition, so if you want it make sure to hurry up and add it to your cart!

With that, I really hope you enjoyed this palette review! Let me know if you have tried any of the color of the year products. Let me know what you think of this palette? Would you buy it if you saw it at Sephora? Did this review tempt you to buy this palette? Comment and let me know! I love hearing from you all! 😀

Day 27: An OOTD and FOTD!

So this outfit of the day and face of the day was actually what I wore yesterday. I went to the town where both my brothers live. I even sold back my Iphone at Best Buy and received a gift card and walked out with a Nintendo Wii U. Nintendo <3! I was happy that I got so much back on my Iphone! Team Android!

I did post some of these photos on my Instagram and Twitter, but I thought it would be fun to do a post about them.

I got this outfit from Maurices! Who would have thought?!? Lol, love that store! I also used one of my newest palettes, Too Faced Chocolate Bar for my FOTD. The picture doesn’t capture its shimmer at all. Comment if you have any advice on capturing photos to get the full effect of an eye look. I am really loving this palette! It is amazing! I will be doing a review sometime soon! I also got my feather necklace at Maurices as well.
