Makeup Review

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I wanted to share a review of some makeup that I have recently tried.

  1. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer    

I have used a few of her other primers except for this one. I think that this one works the best.  My makeup stays put and it actually feels nice when you apply it.

2. Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation in 1 2 Vanille 

I wanted to try a long-wear foundation and decided to try this one. It lasts for 16 hours and it is great. It works well with the primer and I love it. It does not feel heavy at all. Definitely going to keep using this!

 

3. Diorshow Mascara in Pro Black  

This mascara has been on my list for years. I decided to finally give it a try. I love it. It is pricey, but it does make my lashes look amazing.

4. YSL Tint in Balm in Flirt Me Coral 

I bought this because I wanted a subtle lipstick/lip balm for the summer. It is more on the sheer side but it does provide just the right amount of color. It is also really hydrating. I will probably get another one for fall or winter.

5. Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer 

I bought this after reading some reviews.This is a great long-wear primer. My makeup stays close to perfect for hours whenever I use this primer.  If you have dry skin though I would not recommend this primer. It works well though if you have combination or oily skin.

6. Hourglass GIRL Lipstick in Peacemaker

I got this as a sample from Sephora. It is a perfect natural nude color that you could wear year round. I also think that it has pretty good staying power and it did not dry out my lips, I would definitely purchase one.

 

Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a fabulous day! ❤

Friday Favorites

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a great week. I’m linking up with Amanda today to share some my latest favorites. 🙂

  1. This top.  I love the print. It also comes in other pretty colors.  If it goes on sale next week during the Anniversary sale, I may scoop it up.
  2. Peep Toe Booties. These are currently on sale and in my shopping cart. I have wanted peep toe booties forever too. I love the color and these would be great to wear during the summer, early fall, and spring.
  3. Bag. LOVE. I love the color and the chain. This would be a fun evening bag. I bought this tote in March for work and absolutely love it. The quality is wonderful and I can fit everything that I need into it. I also have some of their clothes on my wish list too. 🙂
  4. Necklace. This is the perfect summer statement necklace.
  5.  Lipstick I wanted a sheer lipstick/lip balm and decided to try it. I love it. I wear it every day and I love the coral color for summer. It is also very hydrating. I am definitely buying another shade for fall and winter.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! ❤

Latest Beauty Favorites

Hi Everyone!

I know that it has been a long time since I’ve posted. I decided to take a little break from blogging. I hope to be back to regular posting schedule soon though! Anyway, today I thought that I’d tell you about some beauty products that I’ve tried recently.

  1. Batiste Original Clean Dry Shampoo –         wanted to give this a try in between hair washes and I like it a lot. It gives my hair some volume and it smells nice.
  2. MAC Cremesheen Lipgloss in Deelight  – I won this as a prize at work. It is the perfect neutral color. I have been using it every day. 🙂
  3.  NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Sugarland  –        The colors are so pretty and the staying power is great.
  4.  L’Oreal Voluminous Primer    I have Biana to thank for this one. After she shared how much she liked this product I decided to give it a try. It is amazing!! My mascara stays perfect all day and all night. Seriously.
  5.   Essie Polish in E-Nuff Is E-Nuff – I love a good coral nail color during the summer months and this one is my new favorite.
  6. Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream –  Since my original go-to eye cream disappeared and the new version I didn’t like I had to find a new one. I have been using this for a month and I love it. It is the only eye cream that I’ve tried that does not make my eyes itch or burn.

Recent Beauty and Fashion Purchases

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are all doing well.  Today I wanted to share my reviews on some recent beauty and fashion purchases.

  1. Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flat in Light Oak – I bought these to replace a pair of ballet flats that I had for a few years and that were literally falling apart. I tried these on while I was visiting the Tory Burch store and ended up buying them. They are SO comfortable and soft.  They are a million times better than the Reva flats. I do a lot of walking in this city and they do not hurt my feet at all. 
  2. Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream –  I wanted to try a new eye cream and decided to give this one a try. I really like it so far and it seems to be working.
  3. Women’s Favorite Cardigan by Merona in Gray – I wanted a new gray cardigan so I bought this at Target. The price was great and it is pretty comfortable. I wear it on the weekends and also to work sometimes.
  4. Chapstick 100% Natural Lip Butter Pink Grapefruit – This might just be the best chapstick that I’ve ever tried. It works well and it smells amazing.
  5. Essie Nail Polish in Skinny Dip –  While I do love bright colors in the spring and summer, I have been loving neutral shades too. It is my new neutral go-to color. 🙂

3 Products For a Flawless Face 

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. Some of you may have seen my Instagram posts (please feel free to follow along!) about some new makeup products that I have been using and loving. Today I wanted to share a review on three products that I have been using to create a flawless face. 🙂

  1. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – I have been using this concealer for a year. It is the absolute best concealer that I have ever tried. It doesn’t crack and it is very buildable. It also has pretty good staying power.
  2. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15-  I started using this a few weeks ago and I love it. It is lightweight, and it gives me the coverage that I need. It also has good staying power.
  3. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick – You have heard me talk about this before. I really love this product and I am going to keep using it. I use it along with the foundation when I   need a little bit more coverage. I also like to use for touch-ups.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a great day! ❤

New Makeup Favorites

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a great weekend. It has been a while since I have done a makeup review so I thought that I’d do one today.

 

Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Bare Pink – I had been searching for a nude lipstick that was a little bit darker than the one that I already have. I saw this color and fell in love. It was exactly what I was looking for. This lipstick is lightweight, moisturizing, and highly pigmented. I love it. The staying power is pretty good too.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick in Alabaster – My foundation ran out and I decided that I wanted to try something new. I have only been using this for a few weeks but I love it. It gives me the coverage that I need and the staying power is great.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Annabella – Like the nude lipstick, I was looking for a bright red lipstick.  Of course I had to go to my favorite lipsticks first. You all know how much I love this line of lipsticks. 🙂  This one is the best one that I have ever found. The color looks perfect on me and the staying power is incredible.

NARS Hardwired Eyeshadow in Earthshine –  I picked this up after I ran out of my other eye shadow. I love it!! The color is really pretty and the staying power is amazing. It is also very pigmented which is nice.
