Collective Haul:

Collective Haul:

Hello everyone! I hope all is well in your lives at the moment. I’ve had an amazing summer so far, lots of fun in sun. (So cheesy, I know.)

So, lately I have been shopping pretty much every weekend (not going to lie). I’ve bought all kinds of things from beauty to jewelry to clothes to you name it.

I’ve recently started a wish list to pick items directly off of that I know I have been really wanting. (Basically my form of budgeting)

Let’s start with Beauty:

The Morphe 350 Natural Glow Palette (CULT CLASSIC) IMG_2766

Wet n Wild Highlighter in Blossom Glow

Wet n Wild Foundation Brush

Air Spun Powder in Translucent IMG_2768

Biore Micellar Water

Biore Facial Cleanser IMG_2770

Nars Liquid Lip in Don’t Stop

Revlon Concealer Brush IMG_2769

And finally just a couple of face masks (because I have a problem)IMG_2771

Accessories:

I have an unhealthy relationship with gold jewelry! Below is a picture of some of my favorite pieces I gave recently bought. IMG_2765

Simply Southern Salty But Sweet Clutch

I know this seems like a lot, but as I said this has been over the past couple of weeks.

De-clog Those Pores With Glory

De-clog Those Pores With Glory

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well and excited for easter. This weekend is very packed for us and I want to be spring fresh. ( Or as close to it) So, I decided to dig through my hoard of face masks and landed on the Soap and Glory De-clog Mask.

I know soap and glory are known for their packaging but come on how cute is this! Oh and just wait…. it’s PINK. Yes, bubble gum pink. ( I lost it) Now that I’m praying I love it as much as I do the looks of it.

First off the smell is a bit strong but pleasant. I just rather have non-scented skin care products because my skin is sensitive to fragrances. The application was smooth and fairly easy. ( Did I mention it comes with a baby spoon!)

The directions say to wait 20-25 minutes. It dries much quicker and comes off nicely. One disclaimer I want to add is that it does pull your hair. For me that was not a deal breaker but just be careful! Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The after magic? My face was super smooth and clean-looking. I could definitely tell a difference in my pores. I’d give the de-clog a 8 out 10. For $6.00 you get two applications in seperate pots. I will be forsure repurchasing more of the soap and glory masks.

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!

And that’s it! Your all done. (You can thank me later!)

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!

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.
