Maybelline Color Whisper

20130107-115214.jpg

As you can see from the photos these lip products are so adorable I just couldn’t pass them up. These three were really the only ones that caught my eye.. They do have a range of colors but I’m more of a nude lip girl. Don’t get me wrong i love color and you will catch me at times feeling sassy and putting on a plum or red lip color but for everyday wear I stick to a nude lip.

These lip gloss/lip balms are great! They work just like Revlon Lip Butters. They are very pigmented and hydrating for the lips. They’re great to keep in the car, in your purse or at work.

I can’t say enough good things about Maybelline eye shadow quads. The shadows are great easy to blend, long lasting (with a primer) and with the variety of colors you can makeup an entire collection using these small quads. The only thing I have an issue with is the price at ($10.00)a quad it’s hard to purchase all of them. It wouldn’t be so bad if you got a lot of product for that price but you don’t. I’ve hit pan on a couple of colors and ill try to repurchase and the quads are discontinued.. So frustrating!!! Anyways the one I picked up is in “Copper Chic” such a beautiful bronze copper tone.

Color Tattoos are the best thing in my opinion to hit the drugstore.. It truly is a long lasting cream shadow. I went to a wedding not so long ago and used a couple color tattoos to create a look and to my surprise they lasted all night. People I’m talking about 9hrs… Seriously for 9bucks you can’t go wrong. In the Pink is a pale shimmery pink color.

Jordan’s lipliner in Tawny is a great Mauvy color. I use this lip liner when I’m applying any brown or rose pink, burgundy color lipstick. I have even used it over a balm and I like the color on its own. It’s a my color lip but better (for me)…

Again all of these products are a hit in my book.. They are all in stores now so if your on the hunt for any lip liners or eye shadow quads or just trying to try new things I say stop what your doing right now and run to your nearest drugstore and just shop!!! I’m going to be posting some pictures of eye looks using any and all these products!! ❤

Hard Candy Review

20130107-015138.jpg

Im absolutely in love with this line. As you can see I’ve only picked up a couple of their products but I plan on going back to Walmart and purchasing a couple other things I had my eye on.. I just didn’t want to go crazy buying things with out knowing the quality.. I did hear from my girlfriend that this brand and Urban Decay are made from the same manufacturer. Anyways lets get right in to the review..

▪Blush/bronzer duo in Truth or Dare

▪ Baked blush in Honeymoon #127

▪ Baked bronzer in Tiki #129

▪ Lipstick in Picture Perfect

▪ Eyeliner pencil in Nugget (gold glitter)

Their blush & bronzer duo is a perfect dupe for Benefit! Their packaging is damn near identical with the exception of the print and design. The quality is great. There’s not a lot of fall out and the color payoff is great. It is a build able product so that’s great for anyone who’s still experiencing with makeup or if you just have a heavy hand. Nothing beats their price only $6.00 dollars for this great product and the amount of product you get is very generous for the price you pay.

Baked blush in Honeymoon is a perfect light dainty pink. It goes on very smooth and opaque. I my self wouldn’t use this as a blush but more so as a highlighter for my cheek bone and cuspids bow. I’m not really sure why it’s considered a blush because I can’t see the color on my face and its a little too shimmery to put on my cheek. But again the color payoff is great and just the right amount of shimmer for a highlighter.. This product isn’t chalky and its very easy to blend. At $6.00 this product is a home run.

Tiki is labeled as a bronzer but just like Honeymoon it’s too light to use as a bronzer so I use this as a highlighter as well.. It’s a beautiful gold color with some yellowish tones to it. This product I’m sure ill get more use out of in the summer and spring. Both Honeymoon and Tiki are multipurpose products that you can use as shadows if you desired. Again at $6.00 dollars you can’t go wrong.

Picture Perfect wasn’t my favorite color but the product itself is very hydrating and moisturizing. I like that the lipstick has a great color pay off and at the center of the lipstick you can see a white center which makes it glide on super smooth. I think the center is a balm of some sort. But the fact that its very shimmery throws me off. I don’t like my lips to glisten. The smell is minty and tolerable. Again at a six dollar price point ill try another color.

The Nugget eyeliner is just a perfect glittery gold color. It glides on smooth and its not like some other eye liners that you really have to press down on to get the color. I’ve used this eyeliner as a base color for an eyeshadow look and it worked out great no creasing. Not really too much to say about this but if your on the hunt for a gold liner you can stop here..

Well that concludes my Hard Candy haul. Over all I think the line is great especially for a drugstore line. I think its quality is awesome and the variety of products they offer is exclusive. We are talking anything from face primers to foundation and everything in between. The price point varies anywhere from $6 to about $12. Again the quality is great so I definitely recommend this to all you lovely lady’s.. Please tell me what your thoughts are on this line and if you have any recommendations for me please leave them in the comments below.. ❤

Beauty haul

20130106-200556.jpg

I thought it would be a great idea to show you guys my little collective haul. So last week my daughter and I were at our local mall and of course I had to stop into Ulta.. There wasn’t much that caught my eye but I did pick up Urban Decay’s “Naked Basics” (I’ve already reviewed) and there Naked Foundation which was a repurchase.. I’m going to do a review on all the items I purchased.. I also picked up Sally Hansen’s “Insta gel strip” nail set, maybelline’s color tattoo eye shadow in “in the pink”, also a quad called “copper chic”, and 3 of there new lip products from there new Whisper line and also a gloss called “Bellini”. I picked up 2 Revlon lipsticks the first is “just enough buff” and the other “champagne on ice”.

We also stopped by Walmart and I picked up a couple Hard Candy products which to my understanding are a sister product to Urban Decay. I picked up a blush called Truth or Dare a lip product called Picture Perfect and a eyeliner in gold #356 and 2 highlighters the gold one is in Tropics and the light pink in Honeymoon.. I received the Sonia Kashuk brushes as a present from my husband for Christmas.

Within the next week I will have some reviews up.. Please let me know if any of you lady’s have used the Hard Candy products what your thoughts on them are!! Till next time dolls stay beautiful.. ❤

Kardashian Disaster

Hello dolls!!! So I was in Ulta a couple days ago and came across “Khroma” the kardashian makeup line.. Well for starters I had no idea they were launching there own makeup line. I must be living under a rock. It’s either that or they did a horrible job at advertising for it. Now don’t get me wrong ladies its not as if I didn’t expect it. It just caught me off guard. So i know what your all thinking is there an end for these women? I say NO! As if sinking there paws into fashion and reality TV wasn’t enough here they are with there own makeup line.

Ill be the first to say I’m not impressed.. Ladies just because you have the capability of slapping your name on everything doesn’t mean you should. I purchased the “In the nude” lip set from the line and I hate it.. I spent $14.99 on a set that’s not worth $6.00 dollars in my opinion..

kardashian lips

The set comes with everything you’ll need for “the perfect nude lip”, a lipliner and lipstick 2-in-1:

kardashian lipstick

and a lip gloss:

kardashian lip gloss

Just as the package states these three products are “pre-matched for  flesh-toned perfection”.  They are precisely the same color. Which is ok but the applicator broke as i was trying to apply it, the lipstick was too creamy and didnt look like a nude color it looked more like a concealer for your lips. I looked like i was on my dying death bed with this lip combo on. The lip gloss was my only hope i thought it would save the day &  that there would be a happy ending and i was so wrong. The gloss has this horrific CHEMICAL smell to it, and the applicator doesnt hold enough product. You have to stick the applicator in the tube of gloss at least 8 times to cover your lips entirly. And i wasnt impressed with the packaging!!! Granted there considering the brand to be drugstore but look at NYX there “drug store” and there products are durable and there packaging looks exspensive.

When i saw this set i thought to my self how cheap & flimsy does that look, the shadows look really chalcky too. Again there claiming to be “drugstore”but with a higher end price point! Look at Sonia Kashuk for instience there a higher end drugstore product with great quality. There isnt anything fancy about there packaging  but you can tell there sturdy. Even elf which is at the very end of the spectrum (price point that is) has a better looking palette. All in all I wouldnt try anything else aside from there lashes..  Please leave your comments below i wanna know im anyone disagrees!

 

 

How to tame your fly aways!!

Hello ladies like most of you for a very long time I have been battling with my arch nemesis my fly aways!! More so during the summer months.. I usually do my hair and lately its been in a bun (i know boring).. So I went on a quest to find the perfect serum and or spray to help tame them.. To my surprise there were 3 products that I really like.. And of course a hand full that I hated!! So ladies please stay away from these products if you have wavy/curly hair and slightly damaged..

1) Garnier Fructis sleek & Shine
2) John Frieda full repair flyaway tamer
3) Citre shine Anti-frizz serum
4) Loreal Ever Sleek
5) Fantasia Frizz Buster

Products worth purchasing!!

1) Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum isn’t for those with very thin hair because it does make hair skinnier. You can always style your hair after with curling irons, rollers, or whatever to get the volume where you want it though. I use a flat iron on my dry hair but could just as easily curl it and add volume. It is concentrated and adds great shine, sleekness, and softness to hair. Only a little is needed and it works well with other styling products. I love it.
Price- $6.00 (smaller bottle)
4 stars.***

2) Bed Head Control Freak

This is a great product! It does what it claims: controls the frizz. It also gives a nice shine to my hair and it isn’t to heavy. Smells like green apples.. as do most of their products.
Price-$18.00
5 stars*****

3) Got2B glossy shine anti-frizz

This is the first got2b product I ever tried and I really loved it! I have thin, frizzy hair and using this product really did help eliminate most of the frizz. It isn’t perfect, but it does make a difference as I got a lot of compliments about my hair looking smoother. This product is cery versatile it works well with damp or dry hair and its easy to use.
Price-$6.00 (one size bottle)
3 1/2 stars ***

Revlon lipstick Berry Haute

Product Review: Revlons Berry Haute Super Lustrous Lipstick

Im so obssesed with lip products and when i saw this color at my local CVS i knew i just had to have it!! But being a mom and on a budget i was skeptical about purchasing this 8.99 lip product after all its drugstore and im thinking how well can the color pay off be and the longivity of the color all the questions im sure run threw all your heads. After picking it up and putting it down repeatedly i finally made up my mind to just buy the damn thing after all if i didnt i would just go home and drive myself crazy about it. And ladys am i happy i did because i love it!! So without further ado here are my thoughts on this product, i will be reviewing color, wear and price.


Color:Great

;Its a pinky lipstick with a slight purpleish under tone to it. I think it looks great for women of all color. It took me 2 swipes to get the color i wanted. But to get its maximum color i would say 3-4 swipes if that.

Wear:Good

This lipstick lasted 4hours without me needing to touch up. The lipstick is a creamy formula and goes on very smooth with no shine. Very comparable to Mac and Sephora..

Price: Great

For the amount of product that you recieve and the color formula i would say that the price is fair. Not to mention that CVS and other drugstores always have promotions going on buy one get one half off so you can really get a deal.


So ladys please let me know if you plan on or have purchased this product, give me your thoughts and opinons.

Ombré hair!!

Hello ladies! I’m sure you have all seen and heard of the new hair trend (ombré). When I saw this look on Jennifer Aniston and khloe Kardashian I knew I had to try it out! So i jumped in my car and drove to my nearest k-Mart and picked up a Revlon highlight kit in medium-blonde and also picked up a chocolate brown base color… Went by Sally’s beauty supply store and picked up a brush and a shampoo called shimmer lights it’s a purple bottle! I spent about 30 dollars in total. Went home and combed out my hair and started to apply the chocolate brown on the top half of my head waited 15mins rinsed and let my hair air dry. Next I took my highlight kit followed the directions on the box and applied that all over my tips as high as you desire I went up about 3inches took the brush I purchased from Sally’s and applied some product onto it and started to then make small strokes on my hair (this is so that there aren’t any harsh lines) after I was done with that I left the product on my hair for about 3-4mins and then washed it out. Now this will vary for everyone, I have light medium brown hair so my tips took well to the color and this also depends on the color blonde you want (I wanted mine blonde ish with a hint of brass to it) I then went into the shower and took the shampoo and applied it only to the tips of my hair and let that sit for 3mins went on to conditioner and again let it air dry. After a week of shampooing with the shimmer lights I was able to get the color I desired. Check out my photos to see the end result!!
