NYX Makeup Favorites!ย 

I recently purchased the NYX Color Correcting Concealer. This stuff is amazing!


Taking notes from art class in elementary school, this concealer uses the color wheel for how to conceal. I use the green on any red spots (acne, pigmentation), and the yellow for blue under-eye circles or veins. Apply your foundation over the concealer. The results? Marvelous! 


I also love their Intense Butter Gloss. This color (IBLG11) is the exact one used on my wedding day. It’s a sweet little reminder!

Beauty Find: L’OREAL Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lipcolor!

While browsing the makeup aisle at Target the other day, I came upon these beautifully packaged lipsticks.

 :

This collection is exclusive to L’OREAL. Female celebrities inspired these various colors. I picked up the Blake Lively red, Julianne Moore red, & Julianne Moore nude.

Other celebrities include Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, Doutzen Kroes, & Liya Kebede. Target has the reds and nudes. I believe you are suppose to go by the celebrity that has the most similar coloring to you, then pick their lipstick. However, a lot of the lipsticks look like they would work for various colorings.

I think these are totally worth the purchase. Beautiful shades, beautiful packaging. Can’t go wrong!

Stila Best Of Kitten Gold Makeup Set!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Over the weekend I took my usual trip to Marshalls. I almost left with a new Kate Spade bag, but it was white and sadly had a few marks on it. I did, however, leave with some Stila makeup that I’ve been eyeing ever since I started watching YouTube makeup videos. It was beautifully packaged in a gold, metallic box that caught my eye instantly. Inside it had an eyeliner, eyeshadow, lip gloss, liquid luminizer, and a gold bracelet from Baublebar. For $18 I thought it was a steal! I took some swatches & the payoff seems great! The colors are beautiful. This find was awesome!

COVERGIRL & Maybelline Makeup Haul!

 :

Happy Tuesday!

I’m always hesitant when looking for makeup. It can be difficult to find the correct colors, consistency, & coverage. But I ended up taking a chance on two concealers, both by COVERGIRL. The first concealer, truBLEND FIXSTICK Concealer, works great for discoloration & scars from blemishes. I have a few scars on my face from blemishes, and this covers them so well! It’s a creamy consistency, and the coverage is great. I put it around my nose, on scars, and discoloration.

 :

The next concealer is by COVERGIRL also. It’s Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer. I used it under my eyes. It really brightens the eye area, which is always a plus!

Finally, I re-purchased a liquid eyeliner, Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner. This is an excellent liquid liner that makes drawing on wings super easy!

 :

Overall, great purchases that only cost around $20 total! Comment below if you’ve used these products, or if you have recommendations!

Gifts for Mom!

Shopping for the moms in your life can be difficult. It feels like they already have everything. I think the best thing to do is ask them directly what they would like for Christmas (My mom wants the FRIENDS DVD Set). At least then you can get them something they will really love! ๐Ÿ™‚

White Eyeliner!

When I did my makeup this morning I decided to put my white eyeliner to use. I wasย looking rather tired in the eyes, so what better way to brighten them up than with white eyeliner!

I did my usual liquid eyeliner to create my winged effect on my lid. Then I applied mascara on both my upper & lower lashes.

The last thing I did was apply the white eyeliner to myย water line (the inner rim of the eye).

I think this lookย helps make you look awake & fresh-faced!

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Lip Gloss Review!

In my rush to get Lilly Pulitzer items at Target, I did manage to snag two lip glosses. I actually thought they were lipsticks, but when I got home I realized they were glosses. I was bummed when I realized that. But once I tried the glosses, I was forever changed!

The pigment of the glosses is exceptional! The colors are really bright & become the statement of your makeup look.

Another thing I love is the applicators. I was able to easily apply with precision, & get a smooth finish.

The two glosses I purchased were 105 in Pink Tremolo & 201 in Rose Symphony (which is what I’m wearing above).

Don’t think you can’t get these glosses anymore. I went to my local Target &ย they were in the L’OREAL section. They have various shades, even a nude which I was tempted to buy, but refrained.

Let me know if you have tried these lip glosses, & what you think!
