Hello! It’s Been Awhile

Hi lovelies!

I’ve been so busy. Things have slowed down so I wanted to share a bunch of stuff I have gotten and share my thoughts.

First up, The Rock Candy Studded Kiss Lipstick set and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prismatic Amethyst. I received these as birthday present. The highlighter is sooo pretty! I love the way it looks. All the lipsticks in the Rock Candy set are so pretty and pigmented. My fave one is called Crush.

Then I finally got my hands on the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette!

Along with Lock-It Brightening Powder. I picked up Huda Beauty Liquid Matte

Lipstick in Gossip Girl. Check out the cute bag I got on the Kay Von D website

for Earth Day!

I found these beauties at Walmart. These brushes are pretty soft and worked really well.

Another Kat Von D product incoming! I grabbed the Lock-It Blotting Powder compact.

I LOVE it! The packaging is beautiful as well.

A friend of mine went to Bite LipLab in New York and had a lipstick made for me.

I thought that was sooo cool and it even smells like cherries!

The formula is awesome and I’m in love!

I also got these cool fandom items for my Birthday! My collection grows haha

I know this was a lot but I was playing catch up. I am waiting on my Play! by Sephora box

to come in and I’ll be able to share that.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

 

 

Review on New Wet N Wild Products!

Hey hey babes!

Wow I’ve been crazy busy and finally have time to post my thoughts on some new products I tried from Wet N Wild.

I picked up their new Photo Focus foundation, concealers, and pressed powder. Let me drop the descriptions that Wet N Wild has on their website for each product.

I was super excited to try these. I was also a little wary, not gonna lie. I haven’t had the best luck with drugstore makeup. I know I know they’ve been improved but still….

Let’s get to my thoughts shall we?

I was impressed and in love! The foundation is creamy and a little goes a long way. I didn’t know that and put on a little too much the first time. Oops! It has a spatula type applicator, which I dug because I can put it straight on my face. Great coverage!

The next day I decided to use all of the products. The concealer is creamy as well. Great coverage without using a lot of product.

The pressed powder was a little weird. I couldn’t pick up the product with my brush or sponge. I scraped the top part a little and that seemed to fix my issue. It’s light and great for my touch ups. It doesn’t come with a sponge.

I took a pic while I was out. This is no filter. Excuse my sick face haha

I was like whaaaat! No flashback and I didn’t need a filter. Nice!

Bottom line I was impressed by these products and the price point is bonus! I need to get my hands on their highlighting powders. I’m thinking about reviewing some more drugstore makeup. Let me know some of your faves!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night lovelies!

My Review on Wet N Wild’s MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick

Hey babes!

I wanted to share my review on the newest liquid matte lipsticks from Wet n Wild called MegaLast Liquid Catsuit. The colors I picked up were Pink Really Hard, Nudist Peach, and Nudie Patootie. They are 0.21 oz and are $4.99 a piece.

Here’s the description from the Wet n Wild website:

What glides on like butter, feels like a second skin and wont budge? Our Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick! Made with glammed out superpowers, it goes on glossy yet transforms into a high – pigmented matte finish with some serious staying power. Read our lips This color is going nowhere.

~Glides on glossy and transforms into high – pigmented matte finish
~Lightweight formula made with serious staying power
~Intense pigmentation without drying the lips

They swatched really well. Here’s what each color looked on me.

Top to bottom: Pink Really Hard, Nudist Peach, and Nudie Patootie.

My thoughts:

They went on really nice. Creamy even. They didn’t have a weird smell. There wasn’t any streaking. I will test out how long they last in the next couple of days. I am in love with these!! I was honestly surprised at how awesome these are. I haven’t had a lot of luck when it comes to drugstore makeup. They are a steal at this price and I plan on getting more in different colors.

That’s it for tonight folks! Hope you liked my review.

Have a great night! XOXO Laura

My Makeup Subscriptions

Hey babes and dudes!

There are tons of makeup subscriptions out there. I started out with ipsy. At first I really liked it. I couldn’t wait for that bright pink envelope to hit my mailbox.

Seriously that was me.

Then I started getting tons of bronzers and hair masks. Like whaaat? Someone suggested I change my profile info and see if that would help. I did and nope. I canceled my subscription. Then some of my friends talked me into starting up again, so I did. First two bags were great then it started again. Why do you hate me ipsy?! Hahaha jk.

Then I heard about Play! By Sephora. I love Sephora so why not? I have to say that I have LOVED every single Sephora box I’ve gotten so far!! Here’s a pic from my January box.

I think ipsy is a good subscription. I’m glad my friends all get awesome stuff every month. It just wasn’t for me. I do LOVE my Play! By Sephora box! I’ll put the link below in case anyone wants to check it out.

Have a great night all you sexy people!

Saturday Makeup Talk

Happy Saturday!

I was sitting here looking through some of my makeup hauls and I wanted to share them with you. My favorite one of all is Kat Von D’s Pastel Goth Palette. The packaging is cool and the eyeshadows are very pigmented.

I do love her packaging! The Metal Matte palette was also awesome.

I was also stoked to get my hands on a couple of lippies from MAC’s Selena collection.

The colors shown are Como La Flor and Dreaming of You. I still have yet to try them on lol just like the lippies I got from MAC’s Mariah Carey collection. They’re so pretty that I don’t even want to use them 😂 The colors I picked up are Mcizzle and Dahhlingg.
