October Beauty Haul

IMG_0857.jpg

This month has been a long month for me. There was a lot of challenges and hurdles but I’m happy to say I made it through. School has me so tired and busy. It’s hard making time to pamper myself like I use too. Time management is my new goal but, that’s a discussion for another day. Let’s get into this month’s beauty haul.


FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA

Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

IMG_0864.jpg Fenty Beauty! I was so excited when Rihanna graced us with 40 different shades of foundation. I couldn’t wait to go Sephora. I was matched with my perfect shade on the first try. I’m in the color 430. There’s so many videos and blog reviews on this foundation. Of course, I had to share my thoughts on the product. I can honestly say, I love it!  It’s very light weight and has a matte finish. In my opinion its medium to full coverage.  This foundation is perfect for my oily skin beauties. If you have normal to dry skin like myself moisturize, moisturize and moistirize before applying!

OGX

Renewing Argan Oil Of Morocco Weightless Healing Dry Oil

IMG_0862.jpg

Who doesn’t love oil. My hair absorbs this oil like a sponge. It gives my roots and ends everything that it needs. I hate that I go through the bottle so fast. When I apply it to my hair it doesn’t feel shiny or oily. Beauties, am I the only person who hates having oily hands after touching your hair? With this oil you don’t have to worry about that happening. Unfortunately, it only comes in this size. It’ll forever be a monthly favorite.

FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA

Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

IMG_0865.jpg

Another Fenty beauty product! I decided to try her lip gloss because, you can’t go wrong with gloss. Just as expected I loved it. It’s not a gloss that have to purchase again. I own plenty of lip gloss that works just as good as this one. It’s still a great lip gloss and I’ll definitely recommend it.

REVLON

ColorStay Makeup For Combo/Oily Skin

IMG_0863.jpg

Another foundation. I’ve watched many reviews on this foundation and I finally decided to try it out. Looking for my shade was quite difficult. There were many shades but of course not for my skin tone. I wouldn’t consider my actual skin tone to be cappuccino but that’s the shade that matched my skin. I’ve only worn this foundation a few times and so far so good. I’m excited to continue to play with this foundation.

LOTTA BODY

Wrap Me Foaming Mousse

IMG_0861.jpg

Lotta Body products smell so good. I swear everything that I buy from this brand is amazing. I like to use this product on my hair when it’s in a particular protective style like it is now. It’s also great for many natural hair styles. It’s very inexpensive.

EQUATE

Pre-Moistened Night-Time Soothing Makeup Remover Towelettes

IMG_0860.jpg

These makeup remover towelettes get’s the job done. I hate I didn’t find out about them sooner. I typically prefer to buy makeup wipes that aren’t scented but these smell so good. Most importantly the towelettes does not irritate my skin. So far it’s been apart of my daily cleansing routine.

TARTE

Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

img_0883

I received this mascara in my October Ipsy subscription. This is why I love/hate Ipsy, they send you bomb sample size products; knowing you’re going to purchase the full size. It’s definitely worth it. This mascara gives my lashes the volume that I love. It’s my new favorite. I’ve used it everyday since I received in the mail.


I hope you enjoyed this blog!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

Hi Beauties,

REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS™ LIPGLOSS

MOISTURIZING SHINE WITH NON-STICKY FEEL

Snapchat-1685886972

I’m back this week with my favorite drugstore Lip Gloss. This is another product one of my friends introduced me to. I was in Kroger’s on the cosmetic aisle looking for some lip gloss when my friend suggested that I try Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss. I’m so glad I listened. I fell in love as soon as I applied the very first coat.

You’re guaranteed to find empty tubes of lip gloss all over my house and car. Before I wore makeup, lip gloss was the only makeup item I had. I have huge lips, with that being said I’m very particular in what kind of lip gloss that I purchase. I mainly, look for moisture, texture and thickness (Thick enough to last) . I don’t mind paying no more than $15 for a great tube of lip gloss, but in this case I paid less than $6. Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss met all of my requirements. With just two coats my juicy lips are set! For the price, it lasted as long as I needed it to.

This lip gloss works well as a top coat over your lip stick and alone. I love how inexpensive it is. Every girl needs a great tube of lip gloss.


There’s a huge variety of shades. Here’s my Top four.

  1. Solar Coral Snapchat-2083766056

  2. Pink Pop Snapchat-321875404

  3. Super Natural Snapchat-1735426360

  4. Desert Spice Snapchat-198945885

    This Lip Gloss is priced at $5.97 at your local Walmart.

    THIS ONE


What’s your ride or die Lip Gloss?

I hope you enjoyed this bl0g!

Q: Do you have more low budget or high end products in your makeup collection?

A: Low Budget

A: Low Budget! I can’t push myself to pay more than $10 for mascara, even then I don’t want too.

Q: Low Budget or High-end Foundation?

A: Low Budget again. I own a lot of low budget foundations that I’m obsessed with.

Q: Low Budget or High-end Eye Shadow Palettes?

A: High-end, It can be hard finding a good low budget eye shadow.   

Q: Which product do you always buy from a high-end brand?

A: Setting Powder

Q: Which product do you always buy from a low budget brand?    

A: Concealer

Q: What product did you use to buy High-end, but you have you now switched out for a budget variety?

 A:  Lip stick, I started out buying high end lipstick until I found a huge variety of low budget lipstick that last just as long as high-end.          

Q: Why doesn’t this product have a low budget equivalent?

A: I don’t have one

Makeup Starter Kit for Beginners (Drugstore Edition)

Hey Beauties,

88a638fa5907ddb0bea85226591da433

It’s time to talk about makeup. Makeup has always been something that I’ve been interested in but never thought I could actually apply it properly. It seemed so complicated! All of the products overwhelmed me. I didn’t think I could do it and I didn’t want to spend my money on products that I wouldn’t know how to use. So I started watching YouTube videos and reading beauty blogs to help me. The more I studied and practiced the more I started to fall in love with makeup and beauty as a whole.

Makeup and Beauty products can be very expensive and addictive. I’ve found the best makeup products at my local Walmart , Walgreen’s, Target and beauty supply stores. Drugstore products are dupes to a lot of high end make up products. The saying is still true, “you get what you pay for”. Meaning a drugstore foundation might not last as long as a high end foundation would. Drugstore products in my opinion is a great place to start when testing out makeup and finding what works for you and what doesn’t.

Which leads me to…..Makeup Start kit!img_0623

Makeup Starter Kit is for those beauties who are looking into trying makeup and are unsure about what products and brands to get or where to buy them. I had the same issue when I started buying makeup. Here’s a list of my go-to drugstore products. Majority of the items listed I’ve been using for years.


Lets Dive in! Starting with…

1.Eyebrows 

resized_photogrid_1483130755044-1

In my opinion Brow pencils are the best way to practice doing your brows. Once you’ve mastered the concept and you’re comfortable you can always use brow pomade. I’ve found that these three pencils help me master the prefect brows.

20170102_100719

The 1st pencil to the left is the NYX Eyebrow Pencil Crayon ($4.79) & L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer ($7.99). Both Pencils are retractable which I love and they both have a blending brush attached to the end. The only downside to the NYX Brow pencil is that it doesn’t really last a long time but the quality is amazing. The last brow pencil is a Wet N Wild pencil ($.99). I love this pencil, its not too creamy and there’s a variety of shades.


2. Primer

This has to be the most important step when applying your make up. You should ALWAYS apply a PRIMER FIRST before wearing foundation or powder. A Primer creates a barrier between your skin and foundation. It also helps create a smooth canvas  before applying your makeup.

20170102_100504

The 1st Primer to your left is Milani Prime Shield Face ($9.99) & 2nd Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser ($5.29).  Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser does exactly what it says it does. I love its silicon base its great for all skin types. Milani Prime Shield is my second favorite this primer is also pore minimizing and lightweight and has a matte finish.


3. Foundation

Looking for the right foundation can be irksome for some. Especially for us dark skinned girls. A lot of brands really don’t cater to our skin tones.These two foundations are my top 2 favorites. I was able to find my shade easily. Both brands had the normal range of shades for our skinned tone but the quality of the product makes up for it.

snapchat-1989825280

           1st on the Left is Maybelline Fit Me Matte-Poreless Foundation ($5.99) and 2nd is L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation ($11.99)   The Coverage on both foundations is amazing, especially for a drugstore product. I typically wear makeup, on a normal day for about 8 hours and my makeup is still flawless by the end of the day. My skin is on the dry side but I prefer the Matte Pore-less over the Dewy-Pore-less foundation but both brands cater to all skin types. These are a must buy. You can purchase these products at your local Walmart or Target.


 4. Concealer

20170102_100551

Concealers help wake up your skin and add brightness to your face. Both Concealers have a great range of colors and blend so well. The Maybelline Fit-Me concealer ($5.29) is very light on the skin and so is the LA Girl Pro Concealer ($2.95).  They’re both so subtle and creamy. These two concealers will forever be my go to concealers. Its great for beginners. This concealer can be found in your local drugstore or beauty supply store.


5. Setting Powder   

This step is very important, when applying your concealer and foundation. You should always set your make up. Setting your makeup basically means you’re making sure your makeup stays on your face and doesn’t move. Using a setting powder also help with creasing. If you have wrinkles under your eye or creases, once you add your concealer follow up with the setting powder and bye bye wrinkles. Look at it like nail polish when applying polish you have to always finish it with a top coat to ensure long lasting coverage.

20170102_100131

Sacha Setting Powder ($20.00) I love this setting powder. Its great for all skin types. This setting powder is not a drug store setting powder. I couldn’t find one that I personally liked. You can purchase this setting powder on Amazon.


6. Finishing Powder

Just like the Setting powder you should always set your foundation with a finishing powder or press powder. The Finishing Powder that I chose was Covergirl Queen Collection Pressed powder ($7.41). This powder is good with foundation and by itself.  The color selection is amazing. I also like Black Radiance Soft Focus Finishing powder ($7.17). This Powder is Light-weight and have a silky like texture and has a Matte formulation. Both Powders blends so well with my complexion. These are great products to try. Both powders can be found at your local target or Walmart.

Extra Step for Beginners (Optional)

7. Bronzer

 rimmel-bronzer

This step is optional. Bronzing is where you can add a little color to you face. Rich, warm tones look amazing on darker skin, cooler tones are perfect for adding colour to fair skin. Start off at the temple, going to the cheekbones and then under the jawline. This is where the sun naturally hits your face and focusing on these areas will give you that lovely glow. I chose Rimmel’s Natural Bronzer ($4.79) because I love the glow that it gives my skin and its glides on so soft and smooth. This would be the perfect bronzer for beginners.

8. Blush 

mmbl-05-baked-blush_luminoso-1131b_v3

This step is also optional. Blush helps make your beautiful face glow and look beautiful. Applying blush is fairly straightforward, though it’s important to avoid overdoing the look. You should apply blush to the apples of your cheeks. Listen, the Milani Baked Blush ($7.99) is amazing. This is a must have drugstore blush. I don’t wear blush often but when I do this is  definitely  my go to. Milani Baked Blush is richly pigmented and very build-able. The beautiful matte and shimmery shades of Baked Blush are the perfect cheeky pop of color for every skin tone. You can purchase this at your local Target or Walmart.


9. Eye Shadow

photogrid_1483372115488

Eye shadow can be found any where. It’s hard finding drugstore eye shadow that’s long lasting. With a lot of trial and error I was able to find a great eye shadow palettes. Covergirl TruNaked Nudes Palette ($9.99) is a great palette for beginners. Great pigment and the colors go on so smooth. There is very little fall-out and these last very well during the day. I love this palette. I purchased this palette at my local target.

10. Mascara 

20170102_095324

Mascara makes your eyes POP. There’s a wide range of mascaras but not all of them are great. I chose Covergirl Super Size by LashBlast ($5.49) because its very voluminous and gives your lashes the best dramatic effect. Its skinny wand is what helps enhance and give your lashes volume.  Another great mascara is NYC New York Color Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara ($4.55) . This mascara perfectly lifts, lengthens and separates lashes.


11. Lip Gloss

20170102_095947

To complete the look lets finish with our lips. I love lip gloss that blends well with a lip liner or even lipstick. I think these two brand of lips sticks are great for beginners. Both are multi-purpose. Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer ($7.19) and NYX Butter Gloss are both are buttery and soft and long lasting ($4.99).

12. Lip Stick

20170102_100056

A great inexpensive lip stick has to go to Wet N Wild ($.89). Wet N Wild has the best make up products. I own so many shades of their lip stick. This four-hour, long-wearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, cream finish in one stroke.


13. Beauty Blender

20170102_095959

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge ($4.99) evenly blends makeup for a smooth enhanced finish. Its very multi purpose you can also use it to help blending your concealer and setting powder if needed.

I hope this helped you on your makeup journey.
