I was suppose to put this up like 2 weeks ago, but time got the best of me. Most of the things here made it into my February favorites.
I picked up the Shiseido facial cotton, Clinique 3 step skin care set, and ABH Brow Wiz (dark brown).
Jack Black lip balm (shea butter & vitamin e & black tea & blackberry), Josie Maran pure argan milk hydrating treatment. I also got these two deluxe samples of the IT Cosmetics confidence in a cleanser and bye bye under eye cream.
From Walmart I got: Maybelline Dream Mousse foundation (caramel), Wet N Wild Photofocus matte primer, Wet N Wild Photofocus matte setting spray, Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lip Color (Protector), Simple micellar water.
I have used everything except the IT Cosmetics cleanser and eye cream. I have really been liking everything except the Maybelline lipstick. It claims to dry down matte, which it does not. It’s a pretty color, but I wouldn’t eat or drink with it on. It came off real easily once I started to eat and drink.
That’s it for this haul. More to come soon..
February has come and gone. I forgot how short this month really is. I was able to discover some new (new to me) products that I thought that I wouldn’t be able to try because of it being hard for me to find a shade match.
Simple Micellar Water
Clinique Moisturizing Gel
Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist (deluxe sample)
Shiseido Facial Cotton
Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation (caramel)
Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation (toffee)
Wet n Wild Photofocus Face Primer Matte
Wet n Wild Photofocus Matte Finish Setting Spray
ABH Brow Wiz (dark brown)
I was really excited for all these products this month and I will be repurchasing these items as well. I can’t wait to see what March brings.
Hi guys! Today I wanted to come back with a FOTD post. Its been a while, maybe a week or so since I last posted one. I wanted to play with my ABH Modern Renaissance palette and I also used my Maybelline BB Cream and CoverGirl BB Cream as well.
I also finally decided to purchase ABH Brow Wiz. I know I’m super late, but I think that it was worth the wait! I’m really loving this brow pencil, way more than my previous one. I got the shade dark brown. I really like how precise the pencil is. I can do really fine strokes in my brows.
Now all I need is a clear brow gel and I’ll be set!
Thanks for stopping by!
This past weekend, I went to Walmart to pick up some things. One of the items I was on the hunt for was the Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation. I picked up the shade Caramel. I tried it on when I got home to see if it was a match and it looked like it would be. Today I wore it for a full 8 hours and liked the way it turned out.
I was able to build up the foundation a little. I didn’t want to put a whole lot on. I was able to cover up a dark spot on my cheek, but not so much on the chin area. But I still like this foundation and will continue to wear it!
Happy February! I completely forgot to post yesterday, and once I did remember, I was already in bed dozing off. I’m still testing out the Maybelline Fit Me Dewy & Smooth foundation.
I decided to take a picture with flash to make sure there wasn’t any flashback.
So far, I’m still liking this foundation. The testing will continue….
Sunday I picked up a new foundation, well new to my line up. I got the Maybelline Fit Me Dewy & Smooth foundation. I got the shade Toffee. I know that this foundation has been around for some time now, but it’s hard for me to find my shade in just about any drug store foundation. Well I was with my sister in Walmart and we were at the Maybelline display which had pictures of what the shades looked like on actual people. I’m not one who likes to mix shades because that means more money. So my sister helped me out and I went with Toffee. Since I’m Toffee in the Fit Me Matte & Poreless powder, I went with that.
By the way, please excuse these brows! I wanted to use a pomade, but since I’m growing them out, the pomade made my eyebrows look very thick! I think I’ll stick with a brow pencil until I get them done.
I really like how this look turned out. I think the shade matches really well too. Maybelline is truly one of my favorite makeup brands. I have another foundation from Maybelline that I want to pick up as well that I think will look good too!
Today, I would like to share my January Favorites. There wasn’t much that I was loving this month.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter: I’ve been using this for my dark spots on my face. I can tell that some of the smaller marks are fading a little, but the bigger ones will take time.
Sunday Riley Juno Oil: I got this at the end of December. I use this as added moisture on my face. It sinks in quickly, so it doesn’t feel like anything is sitting on the face. It’s not oily either.
Vaseline lotion: I use this for my hands. My hands get so dry and the skin on my finger tips were peeling. Then I started using this and it’s helped! This feels like a glove. My hands are moisturized all day and night.
COVER FX Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation (N90)
MAC Spice Lipglass
MAC Touch Lipstick
I’ve literally been wearing the lip gloss and lipstick everyday. When I do wear makeup, I’m wearing the powder foundation.
There you have it, my January favs. All in all, January was a cold, snowy month for me and I cannot wait until the summer!! lol.
Today I wanted to do a simple look just using my powder, but once I concealed and powdered, my face was so red that I had to wipe it off and start over! I basically used the wrong brush to apply my powder foundation, so once I figured that out, I decided to just go ahead and put on foundation as well.
I kinda still don’t like the way it turned out lol. I think it may be the lighting or something.
I’m still using my NARS Sheer Glow foundation sample that I got. Eventually I’ll make the leap to purchasing the full bottle. I feel like I’m just having bad luck all around when it comes to foundation as of late. But I digress…. Thanks for stopping by!
Last week, I placed an order on this website called Facetory. It’s a face mask subscription box. I’ve really been getting into face masks or masks in general. I decided to give this a try. Lets be honest, I watch YouTuber CoffeeBreakwithDani, and when she unboxes hers, it looks really enticing. She gets the bigger box with has 7 masks, but I decided to subscribe to the box that comes with 4 every month. For $5, you can’t really beat that! The subscription that I got and will receive is the FOUR-ever FRESH Kit. Comes with 4 sheet masks, but once you sign up, they send you a code to receive and extra mask, so I got 5.
I like how it came in this type of packaging. I would rather have this than a box to be honest. I think it’s really cute and just makes you want to mask and relax.
Left to Right:
N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask EX. (free)
Dewy Tree Tea Tree Blemish Treatment Mask
Holika Holika Pure Essence Mask Sheet Lemon
Purenskin Hyaluronic Acid Soothing Mask
Mimiang Spring Flower Honey Mask
These are all Korean sheet masks and the instructions are all the same. Place mask on the face, leave it on for 10-20 minutes, then let the remainder essence sink into the skin by patting it in.
I’m pretty happy about this subscription. I can’t wait to see what the upcoming months have to offer.
This is my first haul of the New Year. I decided to pick of some new skincare to try out. I was on Sephora’s website and saw that Fresh had all these different kits for reasonable prices, so I picked up the Facial in the Fly kit.
I really got this kit for the Rose Face Mask. I’ve never tried it before and I heard that it is soothing on skin when there’s irritation. I have tried the face cream years ago, but I don’t remember if it was moisturizing or not. All I remember is that it smelled of cucumbers. I want to purchase the full size because it is recommended for all skin types, so this gives me the chance to try it out again. The cleanser, I’ve never tried before as well. I’m pretty sure it’s good, because the reviews are glowing on Sephora’s website. The set contains:
– 0.6 oz. 20 mL Soy Face Cleanser
– 0.5 oz. 15 mL Rose Face Mask
– 0.5 oz. 15 mL Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with Super 7 Complex
I also was browsing Caudalie’s website. I’ve been wanting to try the Moisturizing Mask, but I don’t want to pay the hefty price just yet. So on the website, they are offering a Mask Trio Holiday Set. You get the Instant Detox Mask, Glycolic Peel Mask, and the Moisturizing Mask.
You get 15mL/0.5 fl. oz. of each product. I just used the Instant Detox Mask in my t-zone and I really enjoyed it. It’s a pink thick texture, but once you spread the product out, it thins out a little. It also dries pink. It has a fragrance, but nothing too over powering. I feel as though this mask really opened my pores up and pulled everything out. My skin felt smooth afterwards.
I’m really happy with these purchases and cannot wait to add some of the full sized items to my routine.
