Tarteist Pro Glow

Hey everyone! In my last post I got the Tarteist Pro Glow Pallet. A few of you were interested in a review and I’m very happy to oblige! First let me tell you how I would “grade” a makeup product: Quality, packaging, price, color choice, versatility and how often I would actually use the product. Seems like a lot for just “makeup” but I feel like if your going to add something to a well picked makeup collection it better be worth it!

Quality: The color pay off is beautiful! There is not a lot of fallout or dust if you will. A little goes a long way. These highlighters are buildable and blendable

Packaging: The packaging gets an ‘A’ for sure. Its matte with gold writing, I’m mean how chic. It’s very well made and has a different type of packaging compare to most face palettes which makes me very happy!

Price: Well this product is around the $45 dollar mark. Pricey yes but I believe with six colors its worth it.

Color choice: The color choice is amazing! They are beautiful. You get four highlight shades in very different tones. You also get a creme contour shade as well as a lighter powder contour shade! I think that’s a bonus.

Versatility: I could wear these colors with everything! Six colors mean lots of versatility.

How often will I actually wear this palette? Well so far I’ve only owned this pallet for a six days and I’ve used it everyday! Id say I’m going to wear it very often.tarteistopen

My final thoughts is that this product is completely worth it. Especially if your just starting out or like to keep your collection small this is perfect. I really love my Tarteist pro glow, I think you will too!

If you have questions comment below, we’ll talk! Also whats your favorite highlighters?

xoxo, Victoria

 

Thierry Mugler Abducted Me

Have you ever been wrongly seduced by the beautiful perfume bottles of the world? So have I, don’t feel bad, I get to the counter and bam I’m hooked! The chic little bottle is filled with all your next memories… but wait $120 dollars? Okay okay Victoria calm down lets think about this… Is it worth it? Now that is the question!

Ive grown to have a fine taste in perfume. YSL, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Dior you name it most likely I love it! I recently was gifted Alien by Thierry Mugler. I had been lusting over this perfume for years! Ive been using Alien for awhile now and I have some thoughts.

One: The scent is beautiful

Two: It stays all day long, I mean I can smell it while I’m doing the laundry

Three: I get many compliments on it when I wear it

Four: There is nothing else like it

Five: Its refillable!

So, my verdict? 100% worth it! Now I know its a steep price for perfume ($80 for the smallest bottle) but lets face it its absolutely amazing. Here’s a tip from this girl to the rest to help save a little. Stick to one or two perfumes at a time. Theres no point to have a shelf full to go bad. That is money wasted! Nothing is better than having one signature scent people know you by.

Hello

 

Welcome to the real side of beauty! Here you will find my personal opinions on today’s latest beauty trends and must haves. I will be comparing makeup and beauty products to see what’s worth it and what’s not so worth it. Because we have all been there, you see your favorite beauty icon using a $40 lipstick that couldn’t be more of a disappointment then your last relationship. (Ok maybe that’s a bit harsh, but come on I want my $40 dollars back!)

 

And who may I be you ask? Well, hi I’m Victoria; I live in a small town in Maryland that provides a pretty unglamorous life. But don’t you worry I’m like the Sarah Jessica Parker of my small town USA. I am a cosmetologist by trade and a diva by birth. (Does anyone say “diva” anymore, lets hope)

 

I guess you can say I’m your typical girly girl. I love makeup, getting dressed up, and shopping of course. Then there’s my more wholesome side that likes knitting, crafting, hanging out with my girls and READING! Ugh I can’t get enough of those terrible romantic novels. (Oh yeah and classics)

 

One day I wish to work for a major makeup company, who knows maybe my own! (I mean a girl can dream can’t she?) But for the time being I slave my days a way doing hair and makeup! I couldn’t ask for a better life or a better bunch to share it with.

 

So, now I’ve decided to write this blog to help people get the real side of beauty. I hope you enjoy this journey with me!
