The Perfect Red Lip

The Perfect Red Lip

Could there be such a thing? Hello everyone I hope you are all doing well. In today’s post I’m going to give you the secret to the perfect Red lip! FOR ANYONE (Scouts Honor)

Recently I bought the Chanel Rouge COCO Lipstick in no other than the shade Gabrielle. As well as the lip liner in Rouge Profond. This has made all the difference! (Seriously)

A little review:

Lipstick– Its super creamy, the color is so strong as well as long-lasting!

LipLiner– Easy to use, stays put and comes with a NICE lip brush on the end of the pencil. It ever came with a pencil sharpener. (WHAT!)

So, on to the perfect Red lip how-to:

Start with a good base! I use a sugar lip scrub (from lush of course) as well as a super moisturizing lip balm. I let that sit for a little bit.

Then, I continue to apply the lip liner right outside the line of my lips for a pouty look. Make sure you fill in the lips as well so the lipstick stays put.

Final touch, applying the lipstick!

Review: Laura Geller Gilded Glow Baked Body Frosting

Review: Laura Geller Gilded Glow Baked Body Frosting

Hello everyone, I hope you all are well. Recently we had lunch with my Grandmother and she very sweetly gave us (my sister and I) Christmas money and I could not help myself! I’ll add everything else I bought in my Christmas Haul.

But I’ve been drooling over the Holiday body set from Laura Geller. It was orginally $45.00 but is now on sale for $25.00 at Ulta. The set comes with an adorable wand with a white poof at the top. As well as the Gilded Glow Baked Body Frosting. Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

You can use it in multiple ways, which is amazing. You can use it as a body highlighter and bronzer as well as a face highlighter. I love the beautiful shine and sparkle it adds to the skin. Especially for the upcoming Christmas parties I will be attending. To say that I am in love with this product is an understatement.

The product itself is very buildable and does not cake up. It reminds me of the early 2000’s, those large brushes with the glitter inside of it (much less tacky.) It doesn’t have a real smell, this is a good thing considering you have to use it on such a large part of your body compared to something on your face.

It has a TON of product and will last well into the summer!

Mini Haul

Mini Haul

Hello everyone, I hope all is well. I know a haul right before Christmas might seem mad… but when shopping for others I get so side tracked.

Well without too much rambling. I went to three stores CVS, Sephora (of course) and Lush.
Because I’m an addict and need professional help. #shopperanom

From CVS I picked up:
The Creme Shop Snowman Sheet Mask $2.99
Elf angled liner brush $5.00
Invisibobble Hair ties $7.00

Sephora:
The Tarte Scrub Clean kit (just because I’m a sucker for minis) $12.00

And Lush:

Face Mask Friday

Face Mask Friday

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. As Christmas inches closer (Take a minute to lose it because I am) I’ve been really going to work making sure my skin looks somewhat decent. If your family is anything like mine (mainly my dear mother ft. in this blog) then you’ll be in roughly a good 1000 photos.

So, I decided to pick out a face mask from my arsenal, just a little something to “relax”. Today’s choice was by a company called The Original Korean Face Mask, The Pearl Sculpting Mask. This promised to brighten and give my skin an instant renewal! I bought it at Boscovs on a whim for a whopping $2.00.

Well… FAIL!

It comes in a powder form inside a plastic cup with a little spatula. You put water up to the line, mix then apply wait the standard 15 to 20 minutes and rinse…… (I’m sitting here typing this, laughing) My guess is that I mixed it for too long? Because it started to harden in the container! I run to the mirror and begin to slap it on my face. Honestly everyone in my house thinks I’ve lost it, this just adds to the proof.

Ah… now I had a chunky unspreadable goop on my face. The mask finally dries and after rinsing it off there was not much of a difference. My skin felt soft and it was good fun but I’m not going to repurchase another one.

If you do purchase this face mask just be aware that you need to apply it fast and there is a strong perfume smell.

Pro Beauty Box from Influenster

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. I’m back already like I promised!

Recently I was sent a Pro Beauty Box from Influenster featuring six styling products for the holidays! (How cool is that?) I am familiar with a few of the brands from working with hair but some were new. (Honestly I’m so excited)

First Item: Pureology Colour Fanatic Hair Treatment Spray – 4/5
-Smells fine
-Leaves my hair silky before I blow dry it
-Less frizz after styling it

Second Item: Amika Haute Mess Texture Gel – 3/5
– Smells strong
– Did not leave the hair sticky or stiff
– I didn’t really notice a huge difference in my hair after using this
– Was easy to style afterwards

Third Item: Matrix Biology R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray – 2/5
– Not a fan of the smell
– Natural ingredients
– I do not think I will use this anymore, I saw no difference or texture

Fourth Item: Sexy Hair Volumizing Spray Mousse – 5/5
– Smells like a hair typical product
– Gives you so much volume
– Easy to use
– Doesn’t leave you hair stiff or crunchy

Fifth Item: IGK Down & Out Dirty Spray – 4/5 (I love this stuff!)
– Smells like the beach
– Makes your hair easy to style, even if you had just washed it.
– It gives you texture and a really “lived in” look

Final Item: Redken Control Addict 28 Extra High-Hold Hairspray – 4/5
– Smells like hairspray (haha)
– Strong hold
– But doesn’t leave a crispy lookIMG_4475.JPG

I’m very picky when it comes to hair styling products because I work with so many. But I am so grateful to be able to work with Influenster and try out brands I would not have picked up before. Over all a few were amazing like the Sexy hair, IGK and the Redkin hairspray. I will be picking up the full sizes when my samples run out!

Just a little disclaimer, I was not paid for my opinions and they are my own. Influenster sent me these items to test out.

Where Have You Been?

Where Have You Been?

Hello everyone! How has everybody been? I hope you are all well. It has been awhile since I posted, (YIKES) before you go picking up your pitchforks and torches. I have a good reason. I just completed my first semester of college! This past week I took 3 finals (passed them all btw) and I thought to myself girl you have got to start writing again. I’ve missed it so much!

Exciting news, I do not start school again till January 8th. ( Thank the lord) I really didn’t think people were serious about how much work college was. I want to revamp my page, I want to know some new topics/things you guys want to read about. I was thinking of starting a new series where I go around and try new beauty services. For example I’ve been interested in the new slushy pedicure! Like whaaat?!?! How amazing does that sound?

More updates… hmmm… I have been super obsessed over the new Amazon show the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! (Look how cute the shows filter on snapchat was haha) It is an amazing show, very funny, and I love the vintage aspect of it. I’ve been getting my nails done every three weeks so I also want to add a post on the that once a month.

I will be posting a favorites post as well as a couple of reviews from things I have either bought or have been sent. Well, thats it for now.IMG_4455.jpg
