Amber Rush

The BEST drugstore eyeshadow I have ever tried is the Loreal Infallible in the shade Amber Rush!  The quality of this eyeshadow is incredible!  The formula is a mix between a cream and powder.  It glides on so effortlessly and lasts all day long!  Amber Rush is a rose gold shimmery color that looks stunning on anyone! I would highly recommend !

I would love to try more shades of this shadow!  Let me know your favorites!

 

On Wednesdays we wear Maybelline Lash Sensational!

Oh and on every other day as well!

If you haven’t tried this mascara yet… it’s time!  unnamed

The wand has a curved shape which gives your lashes a nice curl! The formula is great and doesn’t smudge at all.  I really love the way my lashes look when I wear this mascara and it has been my go to all summer.  The only downside would be removing it.  It’s a lot harder to remove than my other mascaras…

Maybelline Lash Sensational is so fetch!

What drugstore mascaras do you swear by?!

Summertime is the best time!  As we transition to the new season these are some of the  new beauty products I have been using and loving!

With tanned skin I love a brighter lip! I tend to stick with mauves, but come summer I am ready for some color! I have been loving the Maybelline lipstick in the color Vibrant Mandarin!  It’s such a perfect summer shade!  The orange/pink color compliments a summer tan perfectly!

My next favorite is the Butter Bronzer by Physicians Formula. This bronzer literally smells like summer. It has a tropical/coconut scent!  The skin tone is pretty neutral which I really love about this bronzer.  It’s doesn’t make you look orange… The packaging is also super cute and tropical.

I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the new Wet n Wild Highlighting Powder in the shade Precious Petals. It was so hard for me to get my hands on this baby!  I checked everywhere and it was always sold out.  I finally found it in K-Mart. This highlight is so gorgeous.  It gives your skin such a pretty glow and is super affordable. It’s creamy and pigmented.  I use a fan brush and lightly highlight my cheekbones and brow bones with this highlight.

Along with beauty products, perfume is fun to change up this time of year too.  I am so obsessed with Thymes Kimono Rose.  Its a floral, girly scent that I love!  I’ve been wearing it non stop!

Last but not least I think a cute pair of cat eye sunnies are a must for the summer!  I think this style of sunglasses looks so chic! I bought these from Target!

What’s your summer favorites?!

Conceal the Deal

Hello Beauties!

Sometimes we need that extra help of concealer to make us look … well.. not so tired!  Maybelline Instant Age Rewind  Concealer is my BFF when it comes to ugly dark circles!  It’s inexpensive and gets the job done!  My eyes look brighter and more awake!

With any concealer make sure you set it with a powder after applying.  This will avoid creasing and keeping it in place all day.  I set mine with the Makeup Forever loose powder which is another one of my absolute favorites which you can read about here > MAKE UP FOR EVER

Bella Eyeshadows

I am a big fan of the brand Milani from the drug store.  I am always impressed by their quality! I have read amazing reviews on their Bella Eyes eyeshadow and decided to give them a try!   I went into CVS and bought the shade “Bella Champagne”.  I figured I would try one to see how I like them.  I picked this shade because it’s a shimmery brown shade that you could wear every day.  I now understand why these eyeshadows have such hype!  Great pigment and a beautiful color selection!

So… I later go into K-Mart and see a clearance basket filled with Milani eyeshadows and a bunch of other products! I literally could not believe my (Bella) eyes! Of course the store was closing in about 15 minutes, so I went crazy searching through what I would consider a dream come true!

As you can see… I did pretty well under such pressure! I probably looked crazy, but it was worth it!  I got 5 shadows! Two of them were .99 cents and three were $1.99!  The one I had purchased at CVS was $4.49.  I was so excited to be getting these great shadows for so cheap! I refuse to buy them from CVS now knowing I could pay a lot less elsewhere!

The colors I got were :

Bella Pink

Bella Espresso

Bella Charcoal

Bella White

Bella Cafe

So, remember… check clearance ALWAYS!   You never know what fabulous makeup you can find!  Unless I got there first! 😉

Another reason to love the cocoa bean!

Obviously the first reason is chocolate!

Second reason… Cocoa Butter!

Cocoa butter keeps skin moisturized and has natural antioxidants.

 Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant moisturizer smells good and absorbs into my skin quickly which I love because I hate moisturizers that make me feel greasy.   It also doesn’t irritate my skin at all!

Although this is a great product… I am always interested in finding something better!

Do you have any moisturizers you swear by?!

All about that glow

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we can’t have a pretty summer glow!

Milani Baked Bronzer in “Glow” is a gorgeous shade with a light shimmer.  I use this bronzer on my cheek bones only because it works as a highlight as well.  Even though the shimmer is minimal I wouldn’t want it all over my face.  Applying it to your cheek bones adds a nice color and glow without being too much.   I am currently so pale, so this is a great product to give my face a little more color!

Milani is one of my favorite drugstore brands!  Their quality and packaging looks and feels so high end.

MAKE UP FOR EVER

A lot of work goes into applying makeup!  Depending on the look… there can be a lot of steps and products involved. So, we need our makeup to last and last and last!

The Makeup Forever Super Matte Loose Powder REALLY does keep your makeup looking fresh all day!

I love this powder for many reasons!

  •  It’s an amazing way to set your makeup so it stays in place, but it also gives my skin a softer appearance.
  • Setting your concealer is a must to avoid it from creasing and this powder has never let me down!
  • My shade is Translucent and it never leaves my skin with a white cast.  Also, if I have a picture taken with a flash on it doesn’t white out my face like other powders can do.
  • My skin is dry, but I can have a little shine once in a while.  You will be shine free .. guarenteed!
  • Lightweight and doesn’t irritate my skin.
