Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Palette Coming In Latte Review

Hey Makeup Lovies! ❤

Today I bring you a review on the Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Palette – Coming In Latte. I hauled this not too long ago if you haven’t seen the haul click here. I was extremely surprised to see all the new products Wet n Wild was releasing, and seeing this was one of them I couldn’t pass it up! Their regular quads are already amazing so I couldn’t wait to play with this bad boy. Trust me it doesn’t disappoint. The palette contains 10 eyeshadows all leaning more on the neutral spectrum. It’s a mixture of mattes, shimmers, and foiled shadows. It’s very affordable at only around $5-$7. The local paper should have Wet n Wild coupons to my knowledge they almost always do. I found my at Walgreens but do try checking Kmart and Walmart.

Today I bring you a mini haul! Last week I went to Austin to visit my dad and my cousin, it was a spur of the moment type of thing! I hadn’t gone out of town in a whiilllleeee so I told my boyfriend let’s go. My cousin and his girlfriend were generous enough to let us stay at their apartment 😀 Apart from visiting relatives I wanted to just ‘explore’ Austin. I wanted to hit up all the stores that aren’t available here in my area. I was mainly excited to go to Sephora since we only have the Sephora inside JCP. Aside from eating very very good food while there I went to a few stores – The Container Store, Nordstrom Rack, Ulta Continue reading

Today I bring you a review on the Lorac Pro Palette! I know, this is such an old palette but I didn’t get my hands on it till this past Christmas. I finally decided to take the plunge and get it. I was debating whether or not to get the 1 or 2 but I decided to go with the original one since it looked more like my kind of shades 😛 Hope you enjoy!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator Review

Hey Makeup Lovies! ❤

Fotor_145257734407461.jpg

Today I bring you a review on one of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminators in the shade Riviera. I wasn’t really into the highlighting fad that had been going around for all of 2015. I thought it just made me look extra oily. But.. it later grew on me and I went crazy looking for the perfect highlighting shade for my fair skin. I started off with drugstore highlights and later slowly gravitated towards the pricier high end highlights. I never had my eye on the illuminators from Anastasia Beverly Hills. To me in the pictures they looked rather rough but it wasn’t until the Macy’s Impulse section opened up at my local Macy’s that I was able to swatch these wonderful soft as butter illuminators. I FELL IN LOOOOOVE ❤ Sadly like always everything was out of stock! So I had to wait. After finally settling for one shade Black Friday and Cyber Monday were coming up and I saw that ABH was going to have a great deal going on. With the purchase of any Illuminator you would get the brush specially designed for the illuminators – Brush #23 for FREE. Of course I ordered one! I settled for Riviera a gorgeous gorgeous shade!

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks Review!!

Hey Makeup Lovies! ❤ 

Fotor_145249617524565

Today I bring you a review on 3 of Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks. After hearing that Ofra Cosmetics had one of the best formulas in terms of liquid lipsticks I knew I had to try them. Every time I would go on the website to place an order I was always so mesmerized at how many shades there was to choose from. I would always end up making a long list and couldn’t take the plunge and order them. These are quite pricey at $19.90 8g. It wasn’t until I saw that Ofra Cosmetics was going to have a sale for Black Friday that I decided to place an order. They had a sale I believe it was 50% off your entire order? I could be wrong but nonetheless my order was around $33ish. I was super excited and couldn’t wait to get my hands on them! I initially wanted other shades but after going back and forth and looking up swatches I decided to go for these 3 shades – Atlantic City, Mocha, and Manhattan.

Huge Collective Haul + What I Got For X-mas & My Birthday!!

Hey Makeup Lovies! ❤

Long time no talk! Let me start off by saying December was sooo not my month! It was a very busy and exhausting month for me. I’m seriously glad it’s over! I was very excited for the holidays and my birthday as well but if you read my previous update post I was sick. I ended up going to the doctor on Christmas Eve because I couldn’t handle it anymore. I had been sick for 2 weeks it was horrible. I knew I had to go to the doctor when I was coughing non stop. It was hurting so bad. It wasn’t a regular flu/cold cough it was way worse. I felt like I was going to cough out my lungs! It hurt very much. I knew I wasn’t just sick where cough medicine would do the trick – as I had finished a whole bottle of cough medicine within the first week of being sick. So wouldn’t you know the doctor said I had a severe sinus infection that was dripping to my throat and I also had bronchitis. If I wouldn’t have gone to the doctor I would have gotten severely ill. Finally I’m getting better. I seriously feel like a new person. I had been sick for so long I had forgotten how it felt to be normal lol. I still have minor pains in my chest and I’ll cough eventually but other than that I’m much better. I’m hoping within a few weeks I’ll be completely sick-free lol. You can just imagine how horrible I felt during the holidays. Oh well, there’s always next year lol! Okay enough with the long rambling update! I just wanted to let you guys know why I was so m.i.a. I am so happy to be back and able to post! I am so excited to share so many reviews I have planned! For now let’s start off with My ‘huge’ Collective Haul! These are things I have been collecting for quite and I mean QUITE some time now as well as a few things I got for my birthday, black Friday, cyber Monday, and Christmas. And of course I’m going to review each and every makeup product 😉 Let’s get started!

It’s my birthday!!

Hey Makeup Lovies! ❤
It’s my birthday !!! Yay 😀
Butttttt…. the darn flu decided to visit
me on my special day!:(
So currently I’m at home resting.
I had to get out of work early because
I just couldn’t handle it. I recently started working at a daycare this Monday. I was working at one previously but that was months ago and
It ended shortly due to shortage of hours. So when I was offered a job full time I took it! I was so excited!! I wasn’t really sure what age group I was going to be working with until I started. I was hoping to work with the older kids because I am not rather good at diaper changing since I’ve never had a baby before. So I knew that alone would slow down any routine. Well fate has decided to test me because I am working with the 2 year olds! Lol they are so adorable but very crazy! They don’t call them the terrible 2s for nothing. Running around with them takes a toll on you. I think that’s how I got sick also because they are always sneezing and you have to be constantly cleaning their boogies. So last night when I felt the flu hitting me as soon as I got home I took medicine to prevent it. Seems like it only made it worse I couldn’t sleep all night and knowing I had to wake up bright and early for work wasn’t helping. But I just started Monday so I didn’t want to leave a bad impression by calling in. Especially since it is my birthday. I didn’t want my supervisor to think I wanted off just for my birthday. So I showed up feeling completely horrible. I told my boss if I could leave during lunch break at 12 because I was sick and I knew I wasn’t going to be my complete self. She let me go home and even asked if I wanted to leave on the spot but I said it was okay since a sub comes in at 12. Those were the longest 4 hours ever! I felt very weak and I could barley talk. As soon as I got home I went to bed. Okay sorry I rambled quite a bit. Lol. Back to what this post was initially for!…. if you haven’t noticed I haven’t been keeping up with blogmas anymore 😦 it’s been very difficult since I got this new job. I needed to prepare for it by getting shots (ouchhhh) doing paperwork blah blah blah. And my work schedule is taking a toll on me. I still need to get used to this hectic schedule I work Monday through Friday from 8am to 6pm. When I get home I just want to shower and go to sleep. It’s all just a matter of getting used to. I know I will be back soon! So don’t worry. I’ll try posting as soon as I can. I have loads of hauls and reviews lined up!;) but at the moment I think I’ll have to stop blogmas. I think I’ll post on the weekend (I’ll try my best). I still have great blogmas posts lined up. Hopefully I can get to them before Christmas ends lol. At the moment I’m debating if I should go have dinner with my family for my birthday. Either that or stay in bed and rest:/ …. can’t I do both please!??? Anywho.. sorry for the long rant I just wanted to give you all an update as to why I haven’t been posting blogmas ! I hope to be back soon!!! I love blogging !!
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
