July to November 2014 Empties

Hey guys! So today I will be sharing with you what my empties were! I actually don't have that many products that I used up in comparison to other empties videos... but I thought I'd share never the less! The products were on a chair just in case anything leaked and make it easier to clean (hence the products are sitting on the chair). Keep reading for the empties video and complete list of products!

Products I'm Testing #1

Hey guys! So today I will be showing you the products that I am currently working to review and testing out! The majority of these products I have purchased recently during the various Sephora sales so it may take awhile before I post the review but they will be up eventually I promise!

Updated Winter Foundation Routine 2014

Hello lovies! Today I will be showing you my updated foundation routine for the winter. I'm using different products then I was using last year, so I just wanted to share with you what I did. This video was requested by the lovely Iqra at The Blushing Giraffe (go check her blog out if you haven't already!) I hope you guys enjoyed my latest video where I go step by step and detail you how I have been doing my foundation recently!

Holiday Makeup Look 3: Metallic Neutral Eyes

Hey guys! So today I wanted to share with you this look I created for the upcoming Holiday season! This is the third look I've come up since starting my blog, if you want a throwback to the two looks I created last year, click here to see! I decided to showcase the Too Faced Everything Nice Palette that I did a review for here within the past week or so because I know people were probably wanting to see this in action (and I don't blame them because...there have been mixed reviews amongst YouTubers and beauty bloggers). Like I stated in the palette, I do really enjoy this palette a lot, I do think its worth getting. The eyeshadow duds aren't horrifyingly bad (like the kind where no matter how much pigment you pack on, you still get NOTHING). Those eyeshadows are just... are not up to the other quality of the eyeshadows and are somewhat average (and it can easily be fixed by using an eyeshadow base like the one I used in this look). Anyways, off to me letting you know how I got this look!

Review: Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System

Hey guys! So I received the Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System over a month back by Influenster in my ClearProof VoxBox. Finally, after a long time of me trying, I will give you a review of the product (and if you are wondering, I did not receive any compensation for this review). This whole kit sells for $45 for the four full sized products shown above ($59 if all the products are purchased separately). They also sell a 7 day trial set for $20 (1 fl oz for the cleanser and moisturizer, .9 fl oz for toner, and .1 oz for the acne treatment gel). This is a bit of a hefty price for the whole kit, so definitely consider getting it if you believe that it will benefit you. Skincare is a very personal thing, it varies from person to person as to what the best skincare products are.

November 2014 Favorites

Hey guys! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (if you celebrate)! Today I will be showing you what my favorite products were for November!

Products Mentioned: 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo - Review
This month I have been all about the natural brow look as a result of the multiple smokey eyes I have been wearing this month. This brow powder duo is one of my most underrated eyebrow products, mainly because I love the Dip Brow Pomade so much! This brow powder duo is great for those natural days, and matches my brows really well!

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel
I'm not usually a huge lipgloss fanatic, but BOY do I love this one. It isn't sticky and the smell isn't repulsive (yay!) This has a peppermint scent, similar to the Buxom lipglosses (which I also love)! Rebel is a nice sheer pink that works great on top of nude and pink lipsticks!

Benefit Rockateur Blush
This blush is absolutely DIVINE. I'm sure you guys are sick of me raving about this blush already... but I truly recommend you to get it! This is a beautiful rose-gold blush with a beautiful sheen, making it unnecessary to wear highlighter on top (although you could of course do that!) Benefit has a set of 6 cheek products right now at a discounted price for the holiday season, so check that out if you want to try several holiday collections! Oh, and if you want to see a swatch of the blush, check out my Top High End Blushes post!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in Beige Clair
I've heard so many wonderful things about Bourjois products that I knew I had to pick up this foundation when I got the chance! I picked this one up when I was in Canada and boy, is this a love! I actually attempted to film a 1st Impression of me wearing this foundation... but that video kinda I probably will just be doing a video review (or blog post) of this foundation. This foundation is probably best suited to normal skin (maybe some of you gals with combination skin) because it doesn't have a matte finish. I find that this foundation does not work really well when it is summer time, but this foundation is perfect during the colder months! I don't think you can get Bourjois in the US, but you can get it on (they also do free international shipping over $15). This foundation is 17.72 on their website normally, but they do have sales, so you can get it at a cheaper price potentially!

It Cosmetics for Ulta Airbrush Soft Focus Blush Brush #13
Yes, I may have picked up another It Cosmetics Brush from Ulta. I couldn't decide between grabbing this brush or the OMG Foundation brush, but I ended up picking up this one.up because I had a wonderful foundation brushes, but I wasn't 100% satisfied with my blush brushes. I have not been disappointed with this brush at all, it is SO soft and deposits color perfectly onto my cheeks. Will I be picking more It brushes? Heck yes! 

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in 5
Yes, I may have added another concealer to my collection. Picked this up during the most recent Sephora VIB sale...and I do not regret this purchase at all! If anything, I'm wondering why I didn't pick this one up earlier! Very long lasting, very pigmented, and pure perfection!

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N9
I've never tried a MUFE lipstick until this month when I received this for my birthday perk at Sephora.. and as such I was pleasantly surprised! This is hydrating and a really nice browny, nude lipstick color that is perfect for everyday wear!

N.P. Solution Premium Snail BB Cream
The other base product I have been loving is this BB Cream. I haven't been a fan of other BB creams so far, but I really do like this one. My cousin gave this to me as a gift when I was in Canada so I'm not sure where to grab it besides Ebay. This is a tad bit too light for me, but that can be easily fixed with bronzer and a darker powder. This is incredibly moisturizing and very light, while providing light to medium coverage! First Korean makeup product I've tried, and I am impressed!

Too Faced Everything Nice Set - Review
What can I say that I haven't said in my review? I have been enjoying this palette a lot this month, from the neutrals to the jewel eyeshadow colors. This palette has a great variety of eye shadows, which will make it great for travel (even though it is a bit on the bulky side). There are some misses in this palette, so I do recommend you to check this out in stores (or read other reviews), before buying, but other than that... I definitely recommend you buy (hurry before it gets sold out!)

Wet n Wild Meglast Lipstick in 902C Bare It All
I've never tried Wet n Wild lipsticks until this month...and I have found a new favorite nude lipstick! It goes on so smooth, and while it is a matte lipstick formula, it isn't drying at all. For $1.99, this also won't break the bank when you decide to get the whole collection!

What were your favorites for November? Let me know in the comment section below! :D

Hello my loves! So today I am doing a review of the Too Faced Everything Nice Set. This review marks the first time where I have reviewed Too Faced products! I've been eyeing this set for awhile now, unable to decide whether or not I should pick this up or not. Last year I missed out on the My Favorite Things palette from them and I really regretted not picking it up! I eventually caved in and bought this palette! I've only tried two things from the set prior to purchasing this palette, the Better than Sex Mascara and Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. Everything else from this palette is brand new to me (I have never tried any of their eyeshadows, blushes, and highlighter)! So, stay tuned for this lengthy review of this makeup set!
