You guys I have a new product for you to try! You know that I’m a huge fan of Marc Jacobs foundation and their coconut face primer. I just received the Marc Jacobs dew drops coconut gel highlighter in the mail last night from Influenster and I’m obsessed. This lightweight highlighter is a creamy highlighter that you can add into your foundation for an over all glow or add it on your cheek bones for a highlight. I tried it on my cheek bones and down the center of my nose with my contour and I loved the finished results. This highlighter is also on the thicker side so you really don’t need to use that much. On my first try I did one whole pump and ended up wasting a bunch, so do a half pump and it will go a long way.
On the Sephora website it says this product features five forms of coco.nut to hydrate and nourish your skin. Those five forms include: Coconut alkanes to help with longer wear, Coconut milk to deeply hydrate, Coconut water to provide refreshing electrolytes, Coconut polysaccharides to help condition and Coconut fragrance to add a slight scent.
I just received this amazing box from Influenster! This VoxBox contained Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation in stick and liquid form. I was so excited to try these products out! I had seen the liquid foundation pop up on a few beauty blogs I follow, and was curious at how well they worked. In the tube the liquid foundation looked too dark for my skin tone, but once I started applying the liquid foundation with my beauty blender it matched perfectly and evened out. The consistency of this foundation is amazing and I love how light weight it feels on the skin. Oily skin is something I suffer from, and this foundation held up decent. I wore the foundation over my normal primer and it lasted almost all day.
I recently posted about my gold makeup brush holders (seen here) and got a ton of girls asking me what brand the pink brushes were so I decided to quickly do a post about them. I was at Naimies in LA and came across the deluxe pink bamboo bdellium makeup brushes and fell in love. I own the full MAC lines of brushes, the full Morphe line of brushes and the full line of the yellow deluxe bdellium brushes so honestly I didn’t need these brushes at all but, come on, they’re pink so of course I had to get them just based on their cute factor.
Last night I snapchatted my clean makeup brushes and got so many screenshots and questions asking where my gold makeup brush holder was from. These amazing holders are actually found at Target of all places in their desktop organization section. I personally love stationary and anything for my desk so I’m always cruising that aisle and a couple of years ago I came across these gold holders and immediately thought that they would make the perfect makeup brush holders. I love them because they have staggered height which makes it perfect for your larger taller brushes but also perfect for some of my smaller travel size brushes that I have. I used to have them organized by the type of brush, eye brushes in one, foundation brushes in one, blush brushes in one and so forth, but my OCD kicked in and the colors being thrown in together made me crazy so now I separate them by the brush collection and color.
Thanks to Influenster I was able to try out the new Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Neutralizer. I received the violet neutralizer which highlights and neutralizes skin imperfections. The violet corrects yellow dull skin for a healthy glow. They also have two other colors, green and bisque. Green corrects blemishes and conceals redness for an even skin tone and Bisque corrects dark circles and dark spots. I love the easy click brush and application and the lightweight formula which doesn’t cake on me. I don’t really have dark circles but this violet neutralizer helps give the perfect amount of highlight under my eyes.
I am obsessed with MAC’s holiday collection this year! The sets were beyond beautiful and super affordable! I picked up two more sets, the Irresistibly Charming Pink mini lip gloss set and the Irresistibly Charming Nude mini patentpolish lip pencil set. The colors in both sets are to die for and super pigmented which I love.
Hurry and get yours before they sell out of these limited edition sets:
I’m so excited that my Lux Box arrived!! I kept seeing the Lux Box pop up on my Instagram feed so I decided I would give it a try. I normally keep my lipsticks and lip glosses in two of my makeup drawers which takes up so much room so I figured this was the perfect solution to free up some drawers for more makeup! I got the box in clear, and it holds 120 lipsticks in individual slots and also has space on the side for lip liners or extra glosses. I was not gifted this item, so this is my true review of the product and would highly suggest it!
I walked into MAC over the weekend and came across their newly released holiday limited edition sets and fell in love. At first I thought I was reading the prices wrong because everything was so affordable. I bought 3 of the sets and am in love! If you don’t need these for your personal collection another great idea is to buy these sets and you can split them up for the perfect stocking stuffers. I also found out that next week they release the second part of their holiday sets and I already preordered them all and can’t wait to get my hands on them!
My Friday was officially made when this package arrived! I kept seeing these Artis brushes on Instagram so I decided to give them a try! I’ll write a review after I try them out, but was too excited and had to share these beauties.
