Beauty of Beauty 2014: Part 3 Lips, Brushes, Nails, and Body Butters

Here is part 3 of my Best of Beauty and it includes a lot of goodies such as: lipsticks, lipglosses, lip balms, nail polishes, and much more!

LIPS

Lipstick

Lush Fresh Handmade Colour Lipstick in Perspective

wpid-wp-1423772266442.jpeg

I tend to not wear much lipsticks, because I am more of a lip-gloss junkie. But, I still wanted to include my favorite for this year! I also don’t go for bold lips which is why I went with a dusky rose shade. This is a very wear-able shade for me. The lipstick is very pigmented and very creamy. You can check out my review on it here.

Lip-Glosses & Lip Tints

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

I love this lipgloss! It’s creamy and pigmented! It is not sticky which is a big pro for me! It also smells amazing too! I love the shade Zaap as it gives color to the lips, but it is still wearable. It is also buildable so you can have it as sheer as you want or more opaque. I posted an Instagram picture below of me wearing the lip-gloss.

bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Hypnotist

This lip-gloss is a very unique shade because it is a holographic violet peach. It looks pretty amazing in the tube, but on the lips it is more natural looking. It does give the lips a gorgeous shimmery look. I love the feel of this gloss on the lips because it is creamy and smooth. There is no stickiness!

Pacifica Lip Quench Lip Tint in Guava Berry

image

This lip tint it an everyday product for me! This is a holy-grail lip product for me as well! I love that it is natural and cruelty free! These come in quite a few different colors and shades, but my favorite is Guava Berry. These give such a gorgeous natural tint to the lips. I did a full review on these and you can check that out here.

Lip Balms

image

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 

I always get super dry lips during the winter months. I am able to find a lot of moisturizing lip products, but a lot of them don’t last long. Well, I have good news for this product! This is not only moisturizing, but it lasts a long time on the lips. I feel like it actually helps the lips as well and makes them more softer instead of masking the dry lips like other products. I have the non-tinted one, but they do have quite a range of shades. The 2 things that I am not a fan about is that it get used up pretty fast and the price tag!

Glo-Minerals The Cherry Balm SPF 15 Moisture Treatment

When I use this lip balm, people think it is a glue stick or something, because of the size of this thing. But, I promise this product is amazing! What is not to love? It smells like Cherry! Yum! It also is super moisturizing and it lasts on the lips for a long time as well! Glo Minerals is also a more natural brand so they try to stay away from those icky ingredients!

Both of these lip balms have been helping my lips survive winter!

NAILS

Sally Hanson Miracle Gel Nail Polish
image

I have found something that lasts on my fingernails for longer than 1 day! Alleluia! It doesn’t last as long as it promises, but I can get about 5 days to a week without it chipping. In reality that isn’t that great, but Julep, Essie, OPI, Formula X and all the other famous polishes chip honestly in less than 24 hours on my nails! This polish doesn’t need a lamp light, but it cures by natural light. It is a 2 step process: the polish and then the top coat. Easy as cake! I also love the brush! It is wider and coats the nails in only a few strokes! I have gotten quite a few polishes from the collection as you can see above!

Jamberry Nails!
image

I accumulated quite the Jamberry nails over this year because #1 2014 was the year of learning about Jamberry nails and what they are, #2 I got invited to a million parties, #3 I had my own party. Jamberry nails are vinyl nail wraps applied with heat for those of who you haven’t heard of them. They take awhile to apply,  but once they’re applied, no waiting for nail polish to dry! 🙂 They also have an amazing array of designs and colors. They don’t chip! They last a long time as well!

BRUSHES & BRUSH CLEANER
Sigma Brushes & Glo-Minerals Brush Cleaner

image

image

I love my Sigma brushes! My two favorites brushes of this year include the E71 and the E45. I always have a harder time with blending shadows in the crease and I love both these brushes for just that. They have both helped my makeup application quite a bit. The E45 is a smaller blending brush which I feel is a good size for my eye area. The E71 has a different shape, but I love to add the crease shade to my crease using this brush. I love using the Glo-Minerals brush cleaner for a quick clean. All you need is this spray and a kleenex or paper towel. It only takes 1-2 sprays and it disinfects the brush and removes the makeup off of the brush as well. I recently got a brush cleaner from Blvd Cosmetics that I have been using for a more intense clean. My first impression of that brush cleaner was two thumps up.

PERFUME

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream and Honey

image

I love the Marc Jacobs packaging for his perfumes, but they’re so expensive! So instead I got some rollerballs of his. I got Daisy Dream and Honey. I love both of them! Daisy Dream is more of a clean scent and Honey is more of a fruity scent. I just think that they both really smell amazing! They also last pretty long compared to my other perfumes I own.

SKINCARE

The Body Shop Body Butters
image

I started using The Body Shop in 2014 and I am glad I did because I love their body butters. My skin is very dry, especially during Winter. I can’t just use a lotion, I need a body butter during those months. The Body Shop has an amazing array of scent choices to pick from. They always come out with new scents and limited edition scents here and there. My favorite has to be the raspberry one, but I can only find that one online right now. I also really like the new Argan Oil one. That one has a more subtle scent. The strawberry one is divine as well. I am using the apple limited edition one from this past Christmas right now and love it! You get the point, The Body Shop has a ton of scents to choose from. I love how moisturizing these body butters are and they keep my skin moisturized for a long time!

That concludes my post for the Best of Beauty for 2014. Make sure to check out my 2 previous posts to find out what other goodies I loved during 2014. Comment and let me know if you have tried any of these products! Once again, sorry that this post is so late! Hope you all are having a wonderful beginning of 2015!

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?

Day 21: What I would buy if I had $500-$1000 to spend on beauty products…

I saw this post idea from Jacquelyn from The Little Scottish Corner and I decided that I would do this post too! She said that she would love for others to do this post as well, so here it goes! This probably isn’t helping my no buy, but I still wanted to share this post with you! If you haven’t checked out her blog make sure to do so. You can check it out here. Maybe someday I would win a shopping spree from Sephora or Ulta. Lol, big dreaming!

1) Alex Drawer Unity with 9 drawers from IKEA $119.00

I hate disorganization! I hate how I have my makeup stored now! This lovely beauty is very popular among the Youtubers and makeup enthusiasts. I would just love to have all my items stored in one space. I would use this for more than just makeup such as: nail polishes, skincare (Lush bath bombs), hair accessories, and much more. I’ve never been to an IKEA before. My brother and sister in law love IKEA and if they decide to go to the cities and ask me to go with, I WILL be picking this up.  Monica Geller from Friends would be so proud of this!

 

2) Urban Decay Electric Palette $49.99

This palette just has a lot of fun colors! I’ve seen the swatches of the colors and they look amazing! It is definitely not an everyday palette, but it would be a fun one to have. This palette would be perfect for those pop of color looks.

 

3) Meet Matt(e) Nude by The Balm $42

The Balm is one of my favorite brands. I do have a few The Balm palettes, but I actually don’t have this one. I got this palette during a 50% sale that they were having and I sent this palette to the UK for my box swap! I felt like Stephanie (Effie) really needed to try out this brand.

 

4) The Balm Powder to the People Brush in Crease, Love, & Happiness $24.50

I love this brush! I used to have this brush, but sadly Mirya got a hold of it! This is a reason why the IKEA drawer would be nice! I love the crease brush because it fits perfectly into my crease.

 

5) INSTAIN Long Wearing Powder Staining Blush by The Balm $22.00

I got a sample of this blush in a different color  in a Birchbox.  I was very impressed with the pigmentation and longevity. I really like the color that I posted down below called Argyle.

6) Ambient Lighting Palette by Hourglass from Sephora $58.00

I have heard so much about these powders! They have so many great reviews, but the price tag sure is large. It is cool that they came out with this combo palette.

 

7) Ambient Lighting Blush $35.00

I did see these at Sephora when I was at Mall of America. They felt amazing when I swatched them. I just couldn’t get over the price tag. But, that is Hourglass. I would have to re-swatch all the colors and decide which one I would get, but right now I am loving the look of Ethereal Glow with is a cool pink (shown in the photo below). Apparently these blushes are blended together with the powders described above making for a flawless face.

8) Deconstructed Rose Lip Gloss Library by Bite Beauty $49.00

I really want to try something from Bite Beauty. Apparently this brand is all natural and made with food grade ingredients. They do this because apparently overtime we consume quite a bit of lip products! Coffee Break with Dani on YouTube just did a Bite Beauty haul and all the things she got were gorgeous!

9) Luminous Creme Lipstick by Bite Beauty $24.00 

I of course would love to try their lipsticks as well. I’m not sure on what color yet, but most likely neutral or pink. I would have to re-watch that video from Coffee Break with Dani because there was a color that she got that I absolutely loved. The color I posted below is Ballet Pink and I think it looks gorgeous!

10) Glamglow THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment $69.00

These masks are super expensive, but receive a lot awesome reviews! I would get the hydrating treatment because I have dry skin. Although, I probably will never ever buy this because of the price tag, but it is still fun to look.

11) Sigma Beauty The Perfect Blend Kit $63.00

I would love to try this brush kit because I want blending brushes to make for easier application. I really love Sigma brushes so I would love to try this set.

 

12) Return of Sexy palette by Too Faced $49.99

This palette looks gorgeous! My sister in law just got this palette and she loves it! It has a lot of nice colors included. It also includes a eyeliner and a shadow insurance.

13) Makeup Geek Eyeshadows $5.99 each

I have heard so many amazing things about Makeup Geek shadows. A ton of people said that I need to try these shadows including an old roommate. I really want to try them and see what all the hype is about. They seem to be really affordable with being $5.99 each. There is an amazing range of colors! I am in love with this mermaid color. I posted a few more colors that I thought looked amazing! Photos found here.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pan - Wisteria

 14) Lime Crime Fantasy Palette in Palette D’Antoninette $35.00

I have heard many amazing things about Lime Crime! I especially love the look of this palette. I love the bright pastel colors.

15) i-Divine Palettes by Sleek Makeup $11.99 each

I was really impressed with the Sleek palette that I got in my box swap. I of course lusted over the other palettes after I was so impressed with the Storm palette. Make sure to check out my review on that palette if you haven’t already. Pictures found on their website here. Pretty much all their palettes are amazing, but here are a few of my favorites!

Garden of Eden

i-Candy

Del Mar

Well I decided that I am going to stop at #15. I guess I’m not exactly sure what my total is, but I know that is is close. Obviously, I would never get all of this, but it was sure fun to share all the amazing products out there! Comment and let me know if you have tried any of these products!

I hope everybody had an amazing Easter! I worked during the weekend so I plan on getting together with my family next weekend for a Easter/April birthdays combo celebration!

TAG: Best of Beauty 2013

So I recently watched a YouTube video on this tag and I thought that it was a cool tag to do with the year coming to an end. I have done a few tags here and there and I have to say that I do love doing them. With tags I can go see what other bloggers wrote about the same questions that I answered, and I find that interesting.  Some other tags that I have done is the perfect palette tag, the wintery tag, and a get to know me tag and I do have a few more that I have on my list to do. I am also hoping that some day I can create my own clever tag.

So I will admit that I did buy a lot of beauty products in the year 2013 and I just thought this tag was a perfect way to share some of my favorite products from certain categories with you!

DSC01468

1. Primer

The Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer

I honestly don’t really use primer. So I switched this category up a little and I am sharing with you my favorite tinted moisturizer. I recently got the Balm Shelter from The Balm cosmetics and I love it! It has a good amount of coverage for a tinted moisturizer and leaves the face feeling moisturized and refreshed. Also it doesn’t feel like I have any makeup on. I got mine in the color light. I normally would have gone for light/medium but this product does oxidize some meaning it does turn darker in color with time.  The Balm always does amazing with packaging.

DSC01469

2. Foundation

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation 

I got this foundation earlier this year. I honestly don’t wear much foundation so I am not that educated on it. But, when I do want more coverage I use this foundation. It is easy to apply. I use the brush that Tarte sells to accompany it. I have the color light beige and it works perfect for me. I also love that Tarte products are more natural.

DSC01499

3. Concealer

Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle

Well if you know me you may know that I suffer from dark circles. I call them my panda eyes. I do love panda bears, I just don’t want to share their eyes. Anyway, I am still on my search for the perfect concealer. I do have quite a few concealers, but I always seem to go back to this one because it is easy to apply and it does give me a good amount of coverage. I recently got the Balm’s  TimeBalm concealer. I have not used it enough to have a good enough opinion on it quite yet.

DSC01478

4. Powder

bareMinerals Mineral Veil

I don’t use very much powder ever, but I got this as a sample. I really do like this powder. It is easy to apply and gives me the airbrushed look. I don’t use it for absorbing any oils because I have dry skin.

DSC01483

5. Bronzer

PurMinerals Untamed Glamour Leapoard Print Mineral Glow

This bronzer actually comes in a 3 piece set. I did have review on it not to long ago so if you’re interested check it out. This bronzer is a nice color and it’s not too dark like a lot of bronzers out there. The packaging is also super high quality! Very sturdy!

DSC01475 DSC01474 DSC01229

6. Blush

Benefit’s Rockateur Box O’ Powder

I love this blush! I am always grabbing for this blush. It’s a gorgeous rose gold color and it has been featured in a monthly favorites post too! I think that the color is a nice, has good color payoff, and is very blendable.

DSC01489 DSC01488 DSC01091

7. Highlighter

Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter, Shadow, & Shimmer

When I wear highlighter I always grab for this one. It is perfect for a night out! I don’t have that many highlighters, but I do have some. This highlighter is super pigmented, so a light brush will do. It also can be used as an eye shadow.

DSC01473 IMG_0247 IMG_0249

8. Brow

I don’t use anything for my brows. But, I do think that if I did I would check out the brand Anastasia. They’re known for their brow products.

http://www.anastasia.net/brows/

9. Eye Shadow Palette

Urban Decay Vice 2

I love this palette. In the perfect palette tag I said it was my desert island palette and it still is. I just love the array of colors and finishes. I am a person that loves playing with all sorts of colors. This palette has both neutrals and colorful shadows. If I could go back in time I would buy this palette again!

DSC01500 DSC00919

10. Eye Liner

Urban Decay  24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 

This is the first high end eyeliners I ever tried and I do love them. They are creamy and super easy to apply. I got a bunch of mini ones in a set awhile back. I have tried other high end ones since then and I still have to say these are my favorite.

DSC01470

11. Mascara

Flower Beauty Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara in Intense Black

Flower Beauty is a company that was started by Drew Barrymore. I decided to try her mascara because I thought it was intriguing with how the brush works. Basically when I use it I apply 3 coats. With each coat I turn the knob on top like in the picture and it changes the wand. This mascara is considered a 3 in 1 twist because it gives length, curl, and volume.  I just think that Drew Barrymore was amazingly smart for thinking of this mascara. I plan on doing a Brand Spotlight on this company so stay tuned for that.

12. Lip Pencil

I don’t ever use lip pencils. The only lip pencil I have I got from an Ispy bag which I haven’t really tried yet.

13. Lipstick

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the color Strip

Urban Decay came out with these lipsticks earlier this year. I have 2 of them, but this color Strip is my favorite. I felt like it was a perfect Fall shade and I liked how it looked on my lips. The application is easy and the formula is creamy. It does need to be re-applied throughout the day, but I feel like most lipsticks do anyway with eating and drinking. This color is a urbandecay.com exclusive.

DSC01482 DSC01481

14. Lip Gloss

Flower Beauty Shine On Lipgloss in My Little Buttercup

This lip gloss is from the same company as the mascara which is Flower Beauty. I really like the formula of this. It isn’t sticky at all. I hate those super sticky lip glosses! They also have really good color payoff. I do have another color from this lip gloss line, but I will show you that in my brand spotlight post coming up.

DSC01471

15. Beauty Subscription

Ipsy…beauty by you

I love getting my Ipsy bag each month. It costs $10 a month which I think is super reasonable for the amount of products included. I did have BirchBox before, but I canceled it because I felt like Ipsy was way better and I didn’t need to have both services. Right now the subscription services that I have are Ipsy, NatureBox, BarkBox, Fortune Cookie Soap, and Julep.

IMG_0424

I thought this tag needed a few more so I added 2 more categories.

16. Perfume

Meow by Katy Perry

I love this perfume. I got it awhile back along with the Purr perfume by Katy Perry. I got it for quite a reasonable price so that is why I decided to get both. I love using Meow for during the day and Purr for the night. I do like Meow a little better though, but still do love Purr. The packaging is adorable! I do like Katy Perry. I think she is awesome at making pop songs. I think that this scent smells very girly so if you’re not into that you probably won’t like it. But, I did list the notes found on her site down below. The scent is soft, musky, and fruity and isn’t overpowering. I do wish that is lasted a little bit longer, but all in all I still do love this perfume and I always grab for it! Comment if you want me to share my perfume collection.

TOP NOTES
Tangerine, Pear and Gardenia
MIDDLE NOTES
Honeysuckle, Lily of the Valley and Orange Blossoms
BOTTOM NOTES
Vanilla, Musk Amber and Sandalwood

DSC01487

17. Lip balm/chap-stick

Maybelline Baby Lips in Quenched & EOS Lip Balms

I always use lip balm and chap-stick way more then I use lip stick or lip gloss. My lips always get super chapped and I love using both these products because they’re both moisturizing, feel good on the lips, and they smell good too!

DSC01486

18. Eye Shadow Brush

Sigma E55 Eye Shading

My favorite eye shadow brushes are Sigma brushes. Every time I go to Mall of America I always stop in the Sigma store and get myself a new brush. This is the E55 which is perfect for placing shadow on the eyelid. I love eye shadow and creating looks and I feel that in order to get the look I want I need quality brushes. I will post more information on my thoughts on makeup brushes someday.

3. Benita’s beauty bobs and bits

4. Eye Have A Lot of Feelings

Even if I didn’t list you under the people I tag, I still tag you!! Feel free to skip whatever category you want or add in whatever category you want also. I didn’t do anything skincare related, but feel free to add that in if you please.

Hope you enjoyed this post. I enjoyed writing this. Comment and let me know if you have tried any of these products. Also please please comment and let me know if you complete this tag so I can go check it out!

One last thing…in school teachers always said that the excuse, “my dog ate my homework” wasn’t a valid excuse. I have to disagree with that because Mirya my shiba inu loves paper! I’m not saying I ever had to use that excuse in school, I was always a good student. It was just a silly thought! Hope you all had a great Christmas or Holiday and hope you have a great New Years!

Xoxo
