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!)

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?

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?

IMG_4419.jpg

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

My Ultimate Face Mask!

Hello everyone… I hope all is well of course. You all are probably wondering where in the world I’ve been! Well, I have decided to go back to college. This whole summer has been dedicated to getting ready for that, and just having fun. I don’t like the fact that my blog took a back seat for awhile, but unfortunately it has.

Enough with the updates, I have an exciting experience to share with everyone! A little back story, at the beginning of middle school I started getting migraines. (They are a family trait I wish I never got) One day my mom took me to The Body Shop and we bought a cooling face mask just to try…. It worked wonders! Fast forward twelve years (Yes twelve!), my beloved mask has started to lose its magic. A lot of the blue gel inside has dissipated. IMG_3601

Well, one night I was browsing The Body Shop website and what did I find?!? The same mask in PINK! (My favorite color btw) I could have cried, twelve years later and I find a new one? Crazy! But wait its only $4.80? With FREE SHIPPING? This must be a joke… NOPE!

This mask is a life saver, it helps with a number of things:
-Puffy eyes
-Migraines/Headaches
-Hot days to cool off

It stays pretty cool on its own but you can place it in the freezer for a bit to get cold. It has a strap with velcro. I’m just in love with this mask honestly, there are so many good things I could say about it. I mean you have to love something to buy it twice.

July Empties!

Hello everyone… I hope all is well as usual! July has been packed with so much which has reflected in my lack of posts! For that, I am truly sorry.

At last, I’ve saved up my all my beauty trash and here today to give you my July empties. Yay! I love the idea of looking at what others have finished so I hope you do to.

IMG_3564Starting with the Home Grown Fresh Picked makeup wipes. I felt these were so-so, nothing to write home about, but did the job. They smelt fine and I used them for much more than just removing my makeup. I felt like the pack was never ending!

Up next was the OOZOO Face Injection Mask. Which I did a review on my blog. (Shameless Plug) I loved this mask and plan to buy many more. Oh, and did I mention they have more than one!

Bubble Bath Pearls, I got these on sale at OLD NAVY. Yes, Old Navy! They were those little balls with an oil inside, definitely a 90’s throw back. They really didn’t do anything but hey they were fun!IMG_3563

Sephora Charcoal Nose Strip… I’m not sure how I felt about this strip. It pulled out some black heads just like the bore strips, but… the smell! (Omg) It was so strong, plus its right on your nose. I would not repurchase.

Hey Smile, I’m not sure what this is called I would want to say the “bleaching” agent. I love my hey smile system. I use it all the time (I’m sorta obsessed,) and its super affective.

Dollar Tree bath soak? Enough said. I didn’t like it one bit, I do not know what I was thinking when I bought it. I love the dollar store but their bath products are a no-go for me.

Loreal Face Masks are awful, they burnt my skin. I didn’t even finish them.

Benefit Porefessionals, I have rebought this product a million times. It’s my perfect primer and I would never switch! I’m a die hard fan.

Thats pretty much it! I hope you enjoyed reading about my empties. Oh did anyone peep the new background? Are we fans?

Face Injection Sheet Mask?

Hello everyone, I hope all is well. A couple blogs back I posted a Forever21 Haul. In this haul I showed a crazy looking sheet mask that included a syringe (yes, a syringe.) I was itching to try it and after a terrible makeup wipes mishap, I decided it was time! (Btw, DO NOT buy makeup wipes just because they are on sale!)

The Oozoo Mask is suppose to help hydrate your skin. It retails for around the five dollar mark. The sheet mask itself is made from a 100% cotton. IMG_3378

The mask was fairly easy to assemble….. yeah I know, but yes we are still talking about a SHEET MASK! IMG_3379

You take out the syringe press the top button down, and push all the product into the mask package. Shake it up! Then, you take the mask out and apply it to the face for 15-20 minutes. (Or 30-45 minutes…) IMG_3376

Final Thoughts: I was so impressed with this mask! I will buy more, many more! My skin felt cool and so much better after the makeup wipes. The mask is very hydrating, and it helps your face stay hydrated! Plus, it was super fun to do!

Perfectly Posh Haul and Review!

Hello everyone! I hope all is well as usual. Today, is a super exciting haul/review from a company called Perfectly Posh.

A little while ago I got in contact with one of their consultants and we decided to do a collaboration! Abby was sweet enough to send me a package with products and samples to try out. I’ve tried out each product a few times to get an accurate opinion.

Before I go into detail for each one I want to talk about the company itself. All of the containers are made from recycled material, they use naturally based products as well as being cruelty free and every thing is made in the USA.

First product is the Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme in Boho Soul- (4 out of 5) $9.00
Smell- Spiced fruits, amber and Oud wood.
The hand creme is amazing it makes your hands super soft and it smells so good. Very spicy, but not overwhelming. It doesn’t leave the hand greasy or sticky which is a plus considering it is so hydrating. IMG_3136

Next product is the Lemon Wedge Caffinated Lip Balm- (5/5) $5.00
Smell- Lemon (Obviously)
Okay, let me tell you about this lip balm! I swear by it now. It has the tingly feeling, and my lips are so smooth. I don’t have the need to keep reapplying it like most lip balms. It smells so nice, and the packaging looks like a vintage cleaner. And to top it off it’s only five dollars! IMG_3137

Next product she sent me was the Crackle Spackle Detoxifying Face Mask- (5/5) $19.00
Smell- Mint and Charcoal
It smells so good! The mask itself tingles and feels so cooling. I usally can’t use new products with out breaking out the first time but this soothed my skin and my black heads were noticeabley smaller and cleaned out! I love this mask and will definitely be repurchasing it!IMG_3135

Last product is a tool! Its a face mask silicone brush. I give it a 5/5 because its shaped so perfect! It applies the mask evenly without patches.

Each product has amazing packaging… super fun and colorful.

I wanna give a huge shout out to Abby Smith for gifting me these products! I’m going to link all her information below if you want to try any of these out or anything else she sells.
