New Product Alert: Jordana 12 Hr Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil and Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain

Hello everyone! So today I wanted to share with you guys some new products from Jordana that has recently came out! For those of you who may not know, Jordana is found in Walgreens and is a sister company to Milani. As expected, many of the products overlap in quality, the only main difference is the price (which Jordana will win any day)! If you guys are interested in seeing what I picked up, then keep on reading!

Left to Right (One Swipe Across Hand): Jordana 12 Hr Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in 01 Eternal White, Jordana 12 Hr Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in 03 Tenacious Brown, Jordana 12 Hr Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in 04 Continuous Almond, Jordana 12 Hr Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in 05 Pink Evermore 

As you can see, three of the four jumbo eyeshadow sticks are matte with Pink Evermore being the only one with shimmer. There are 8 shades of this line and I picked out the four that I felt like I could use the most. These claim to be long lasting, water resistant, and crease-poof. For those of you who are concerned about parabens, then you will be glad that these products are paraben free! I have not tried these out on my eyes yet. However, just from the swatch settling for a couple of minutes, I have not been able to make these eyeshadows budge no matter how much I try. 

I have also tried testing how water resistant the product is, and so far I am impressed with the product! There was only minor wear for Pink Evermore and Eternal White pigmentation faded), the other two colors looked the same as then I initially applied. I will do a detailed review of this product later but so far I have a very good first impression of this product! The product itself costs $3.99 at Walgreens and on the Jordana website. If you are looking for a good jumbo eyeshadow pencil at a drugstore price, I recommend you check these out! EDIT: Detailed Review Here

Left to Right (One Swipe Only): Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in 02 Sweet Pink, Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in 05 Honey Love, Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in 06 Cranberry Crush, Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in 07 Rock n Rouge

The product I was most excited for was this line of moisturizing balm stains. The line itself has 8 colors and as usual I got some neutral shades but I also got some colors I don't normally gravitate towards, a berry and red! I have tried on Sweet Pink and Cranberry Crush and I can definitely say that these two are very moisturizing! Other than that, I will have to test these products out more before I can give a definitive answer to whether or not I give it a thumbs up or down! These products are priced at $2.99 at Walgreens, definitely a much better price than the Revlon JBKBS so these are something to look into if you are looking for an even more affordable option. Like always, I will do an updated post with my final thoughts on this product!

Are any of these products seem exciting to you or something you would be willing to try? Let me know in the comment section below! I'm still trying to catch up on other posts, still need to wrap up Back to School (cause yes, I do know of schools who haven't started yet!) and have tons of reviews I need to finalize! Let me also know if you want me to review anything for you guys and I will do so!

August Favorites!

Welcome to my August favorites! As some of you guys very well know, August has been a crazy month for me! I got my wisdom teeth removed, school is now back up again and life is being extremely hectic! So much money has to be dropped for college shopping that it is absolutely insane! I have a decent amount of makeup products that I will be sharing with you guys today that have been a favorite of mine for the past month or so, a couple of them are rediscovered favorites that I have and others are new favorites!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Dark Brown
I have changed up my favorite brow product for the last couple of months, but as you can see this is by far my newest favorite. I prefer this one over the Brow Wiz in Brunette and Elf Studio Brow Kit in Medium because this gives me the most natural brow. Yes, I can blend with the Brow Wiz and the Elf Brow Kit but the effect this brow powder gives is absolutely divine. Be on the lookout for an indepth review in the upcoming future!

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach
I've only recently just started using this product actively in August and I now remember why I love it so much! This corrector works wonders for discoloration and brightening up light undereye circles. As you can see, I love it so much that I have hit pan on it! Yay for another Project 10 Pan product to be finished!

Elf Studio Blush in Pink Passion
While this blush is a scary color for a lot of people, it is absolutely beautiful if applied sheerly or applied with a heavy hand. I like this blush a lot because of that versatility. I have been using this blush almost every day of this month!

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Moisturizer in SPF 50
Just when I was trying to find an affordable alternative to the Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40, I have found something absolutely wonderful! I stumbled upon this product while searching the internet for the best liquid moisturizer on TotalBeauty.com and I am so glad that I picked this up! This work beautiful under makeup and on its own, and the price tag is so much more affordable then the Clarins Sunscreen!

NuMe 19MM Magic Wand
This curling wand is absolutely divine. The curls last all day without any hairspray and through Florida humidity. The price tag is absolutely crazy, but well worth it (especially since there are tons of coupon codes for this floating on the interwebs). Definitely a must try if you have straight hair that doesn't hold any shape of a curl. This curling wand is a total life changer for me and I will probably do something dangerous and buy the whole line now! Be on the look out for an indepth review soon!

Real Techniques Blush Brush
Ever since I purchased this brush in my Back to School Haul, I have not picked up another blush brush since (which is a sign of how amazing this brush is)! This brush has completely changed the way on how I apply blush nowadays, there is less room for error using this brush because it picks up product nicely without packing on an excessive amount. As such, I highly recommend this brush for those of you who own pigmented blushes like I do and have a heavy hand! This brush balances out my heavy hand in blushes which allows me to walk out of the house without looking like a clown!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
This brush is another game changer in my makeup routine! I love using this brush with liquid foundations, it makes my holy grail foundation, the CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation, look even more beautiful on the skin! Definitely something worth checking out!

Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Pinched
I haven't really delved into cream blushes until I found this in my collection (yes, I may have misplaced this somewhere!). This blush is light to medium peach color that gives a nice natural flush of color on your cheeks. This blush is also nice to use when you want to layer with other blushes to prolong the wear of your blush!

Wet n Wild Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana
I never realized the value of a subtle, powder highlight until I picked up this bad boy. The product amount of this is astronomically ridiculous, which means that you get almost a lifetime of useage out of it! Will be definitely using this highlighting product for months and months to come!
