Morphe Haul Pt.2 : September 2018

Alright who is ready for Part 2 of our Morphe Haul?

So to my surprise just after Jaclyn Hill and Morphe announced the launch of the Vault collection palettes they also came out with the Master Collection Brush set!

.^.^.^._______.^.^.^.

Yes my heart skipped a beat and I almost passed out!

Yes I probably don’t need any more brushes and yes this might seem excessive to add to my collection but I honestly couldn’t resist! These brushes are beautiful and honestly this just helps so I’m not having to wash brushes every week!

So for this collection there were three options:

  • The Master Collection – 24 brushes for $165
  • The Master Face Collection- 5 face brushes for $58
  • The Master Eye Collection- 8 eye brushes for $48

There was also the option to buy the glitter carrying cases separately. But as you can imagine these sold out quickly as the quantity was limited.

I got the full collection along with a few other items on my wish list. So lets dive right in!

Can we just have a moment for this brush holder?…

If you are a sparkle lover like I am then you are having my same reaction! This set is incredible!

They also came in really nice and protected packaging.

img_1892

Now lets take a look at the brushes!

img_1919

We’ll start with the face brushes as these are the bigger brushes and have the most difference to them.

img_1893

 

JH 01

This first brush is a huge powder brush! I love how fluffy this one is and how soft it feels. This brush is similar to one that they have in the Elite collection. I love to use this for dusting powder all over my face, dusting off excess powder or blending all of my powders on my face together. These big fat brushes are some of my favorites!

 

img_1894

 

JH 02

I’m pretty sure I have a similar brush from Morphe like this one but it’s still a fantastic bronzer brush. The nice thing about this one is that not only is it slightly tapered it also is big and diffuses bronzer nicely around the face.

 

img_1895

 

JH 03

I love that this set came with a foundation brush- even though it’s similar to the Morphe M439 this one is a little bit longer bristles. I normally am not the type to apply my foundation with a brush but this one is really nice to use for foundation.

img_1896

 

 

JH 04

I love to use this brush for blush! It’s got a nice angle to it on the end that makes it really nice for sweeping color onto the cheeks.

 

img_1897

 

JH 05

This brush is one that Jaclyn put a lot of time and effort into developing and she say’s it’s the perfect contour brush. I haven’t had a chance to use it yet for that but it is a really nice brush, soft and compact. In the photo it looks more compact just because I have just taken it out of the package and I hadn’t had a chance to fluff it out. I am excited to give this a go.

img_1898

 

JH 06

Now this brush is a different one for me. I need to re-watch Jaclyn’s video to remember the exact use for this one but I’m not sure what exactly I will use it for just yet. This is a really nice brush with a flexible tapered end to it.

 

img_1899

 

JH 07

Boujie! This brush is what I like to call the boujie brush because it’s made specifically to sweep away back from under the eyes. Now I’m sure it can be used for anything else but for what it was created for  I just giggle at because that’s just an extra brush that isn’t totally necessary. But I’ll use it anyway!

img_1900

 

JH 08

This cute little thing is the smaller version of the JH 03 foundation brush and is really nice for blending out concealer if your looking for a brush to do that. I personally love using a sponge but this is a really nice option as well!

 

img_1901

 

JH 09

AHHH! The coveted highlighter brush! This is the exact brush as the Morphe M510, just labeled in her collection. And honestly when a brush is as great as this there’s not need to change it! I would have been shocked if she hadn’t added this one to her collection! I am so in love with this highlighting brush this is the 3rd one I will own.

img_1902

 

JH 10

A unique brush for sure this one is really nice for cleaning up contour with loose powder, contour the nose, and as Jaclyn uses it to help keep eyeshadow where you want it without ruining your foundation!

 

 

 

 

All of these face brushes are really high quality and easy to use. I love adding face brushes to my collection from sets like these because most often it’s far more expensive to buy them individually or on their own than it is to buy the full set.

Now for the eye brushes!

img_1917

With these I can break them into three groups-blending, pencil and definer brushes.

Top L-JH30 and JH31 below; Top R-JH32; Bottom L-JH33; Bottom R-JH34 and JH 35 below.

The blending brushes are probably my favorite. Jaclyn is a really big fan of natural hair when it comes to blending out eyeshadow and I have found that these brushes really pack on pigment and make for a beautiful blown out smoky eye. Each of these provides a different job but I really love each of them. I really like that some of these are made with longer bristles because it makes for a super blown out look!

Top L- JH36; Top R-JH37; Center-JH38; Bottom L-JH39; Bottom R-JH40

This group of pencil brushes offered some additions to my collection that I haven’t tried before. Jaclyn uses these a lot to either be precise or to smoke out the lower lash line. I personally haven’t been very adventurous with my bottom lash line just because it’s not a technique that I am particularly comfortable with but my goal with these new tools is try it out more often and really see what I can do to accomplish a fun blown out smoky eye look! That and now I can start adding more pops of color on my lower lash line!

Left- JH41; Top R-JH42; Bottom R- JH 43

The final three brushes in the eye brushes are what I would like to call the definers of the set. The JH 41 is created very similar to the Mac 242 which is a cult favorite for packing shadow on the lid, and I do have to say it’s super nice and really packs the color on! The JH 42 is a really small flat shader that is super nice for highlighting the inner corners or highlight the brow bone. The petite nature of this brush really makes it fit nicely in the inner corners and all of those tight places for detail work. The final brush in the collection is the JH43 which is a flat definer brush. This one is really nice for adding color the lash line both upper and lower or making any kind of defined line.

Over all this collection would be great for any one who is looking for a high quality set of brushes that will take care of every aspect of the make up journey. I know I will get use out of each and every one of these brushes and I am excited to continue to use this whole set! I highly recommend Morphe brushes as they are really nice and this set not only covers everything but is super pretty to look at!

Now while I was making an order I decided to add a few extra items I had been wanting to try so I thought I would share those extras with you all!

I have heard rave reviews about these sponges so I decided to finally give them a try. These sponges are only $7 each which is a big difference from the $20 for a beauty blender. I have been using these since I got them and I love them! They get pretty big with water and make for super easy make up application! I have loved using both of them! I have found the darker one is my favorite for foundation because it allows for more surface coverage! But I really love both of these and they don’t seem to soak up a lot of product. I will be buying more of these in the future!

img_1922

 

Another item I have wanted to try out for some time is one of their brush cleaning solids partly because I’ve wanted to see how well it works and partly because I am out of my Sigma brush cleaner. I haven’t had a chance to sit down and really give this a shot but it smells amazing! It has the most soft sweet coconut smell that I have been loving!

 

img_1923

 

And of course the final item I got was another continuous setting spray mist. I absolutely love this stuff ! If you haven’t tried it yet now is as good a time as any to jump on the ban wagon! It’s incredible!

 

 

 

And with that I conclude my Morphe Haul Pt. 2. I really love this brush collection and everything I got in in this shipment! I always love adding to my collection and getting high quality items that I know will last! I hope you enjoyed this part two of my haul!

Morphe Haul Pt. 1: September 2018

If you follow along with anything in the world of make up and beauty I’m sure you have seen or heard about the launch of the Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection in collaboration with Morphe Cosmetics! The reviews have been good, bad and indifferent but I have been a huge fan of Jaclyn Hill for a long time so I had to pick these up and review them! She is one of the first You Tubers I ever started watching and she has been someone I admire in the beauty community!

So lets take a look at this gorgeous new collection!

The outside packaging is really nice and clean looking! The palettes came wrapped in double bubble wrap which I totally appreciate. I wanted to show in a photo how nicely they took care with packaging! There is nothing more comforting knowing they are taking the time to make sure they make it to me in one piece!

img_1805

 

The palette collection is housed in this sturdy cardboard box that provides a ribbon to help with easy removal of the palettes. I really like how this displays the palettes as well because you can see the names of each palette as each one is a different color story. There are also some colored confetti to help differentiate between each palette but that is hard to see in my photos.

 

 

 

Now we will dive into each palette! A couple of the palettes for me are stretch to play with because they are colors outside of my comfort zone! I’m not the most adventurous with “unconventional” colors but I like that I can restrict myself to using only one palette and therefore try out new looks! So lets get into these beautiful palettes!

Armed and Gorgeous

img_1811

Oranges, yellows and gold’s oh my! This one has a fantastic pop of green in it along with some spectacular sparkle and I absolutely love it! This is one I have to stretch with because I’m not the most adept with using yellow’s and oranges or greens for that matter!

Dark Magic

img_1812

I have to say this is the most out there palette for me and I haven’t had a chance to play around with it yet but I really love the different shades of green with the pop of blue and the spectacular silver! I am hoping to post a look with each palette!

Ring the Alarm

img_1808

Hello comfort zone! This has been the palette I have used the most since I got these in the mail and I absolutely love it! It’s stunning! The only problem I’m having with this one is that the shimmers are more subtle than I was expecting. Now this could easily be attributed to the inconsistency’s in the palettes but it also might just be how the shadow is supposed to be. Regardless I still love this palette.

Bling Boss

img_1809

By far my favorite palette of the bunch! The cranberries, the red, the pop of purple along with the stunning shimmer lid shades! It’s just a stunning palette! I have only dipped into this one once but it’s everything I could have wanted! I love it! I can’t wait to show you all a look I create with this palette!

img_1813

I’m in love with this whole collection! Even though there are some inconsistencies that have been reported I don’t feel like I got bad palettes by any means. I love each of them and I am excited to really jump out of my comfort zone!

img_1815

 

 

The final item I got was the Morphe Continuous Spray Setting Mist! This is my first time trying this out and I have to say I am hooked! It’s incredible! I don’t know if I have loved a setting spray so much before! If you haven’t tried this put it on your wish list or in your cart and pull the trigger! It’s incredible!

 

 

This wraps up the first part of my recent Morphe haul! I have another one coming up for you! I am also really excited to start playing with the fun colors and to post some fun looks for you!

Have you tried out these palettes? What do you think about them? Leave me a comment!

Colour Pop Haul : September 2018

Yes you are seeing that correctly! I placed another order on Colourpop.com.

They were running a special with buy one get one free Super Shock Shadow’s with also new shades! How could I not make an order!? Especially when free shipping only takes $30! Lets get into what I ordered!

img_1728

I should mention I also picked up a couple of items that were on last call clearance. I will touch on those first!

Pressed Powder Highlight in Taffy

Like I said this was in the last call section and was on sale. I couldn’t resist picking this up with the beautiful peachy pink color and the soft golden shimmer. I wasn’t sure how this would show up on my skin but thought if anything it would be a nice blush topper. To my surprise I actually can use it as a highlighter very lightly and without it looking crazy! This has be beautiful during the summer and looks great on top of blush as well.

Ultra Satin Lip in Canoodle

Such a pretty, pretty shade. This is just dark enough to not be an everyday shade for me but it’s the prefect transition shade into the fall and dark lips. The satin formula is one of my favorites and wears so nicely and comfortably. I am just now starting to break this out and wear this as I transition into the fall make up.

Now for the some Super Shock Shadows!

All of these were new shades and I think a couple of them were limited edition but I can’t remember-I will link the ones I can!

Force Behavior- Ultra Glitter

This one must have been limited edition or sold out because I cannot find it on the website. It is a very pretty neutral glitter shade with a soft rosey/champagne hue and lots of gold and champagne glitter! A staple in any collection!

Fringe-Ultra Glitter

This is another stunning lid shade that has that pretty soft champagne gold color. I love these for an all over the lid color and really just adding sparkle to any look. This one is just a stunning everyday for me!

Polly- Ultra Glitter

This one is still in stock! Finally! This is a stunning pink shade and my swatch really doesn’t do it justice! I love the peachy pink color and there is a lot of pink and gold glitter in this one as well. This reminds me a lot of an older shade that I have in my collection that I can’t think of the name on. A really beautiful pink shade!

Paisley – Ultra Glitter

This is a more sheer formula. The color is an golden ivory with champagne and pink glitter. I really like this shade because it adds a lot shimmer and glitter with out too much pigment which is nice to add on top of other shadows. This is also really nice for a highlight as well.

Twitterpated- Ultra Glitter

This was probably one of the shades I was most excited for because it’s everything I love to put on my eyes! This is that perfect pink and gold shade that makes your lids a nice soft rose gold hue. I have been using this so much since I got it and I absolutely love how stunning this comes off on the eyes! This is a must for any collection!

6 AM- Metalic

This one I believe was limited edition and out side of my comfort zone quite a bit. I’m not normally a bright orange wearer but this is really pretty. When I saw it online I was drawn to it because of the golden flip it had and I think this will be really beautiful for the fall and then again to bring in a pop of color in the spring time!

Ladybird – Ultra Glitter

I am in love with this shade! And to top it off they sent me two by accident so I won’t run out any time soon! This is a stunning ivory shade with lots of silver glitter in it and makes it the most perfect bright pop of shimmer on the lids. It’s one of those shades that I will be using a lot of!

Six In The City- Ultra Metallic

I believe this was another limited edition shade that doesn’t show up on the website any more but I absolutely love it! The swatch photo doesn’t show how truly metallic this shade it but it’s a very pretty rosey pink with gold flip to it. This one is similar to Twitterpated but more on the metallic side rather than the glitter side. This is another one of my favorites! This one did get sent to me separately from the other shadows because the original shade that was sent out to me was the wrong one which I will put photo’s of below. The nice thing was Colour Pop was on it and sent me out the correct shade right away which I appreciated! So I basically got 2 additional free shadows which I’m not complaining about and the additional shade which I don’t know the actual name of is super fun and will be definitely something that puts me out of my comfort zone!

I think I will use this during the holiday’s and love it!

That wraps up my ColourPop haul for September! I am excited to see what they come out with for the fall season and I know I will most likely be submitting another order soon because I am running low on my foundation because it’s become my everyday foundation.

I hope you enjoy this and let me know if you have gotten anything recently from ColourPop!

Sephora Haul : August 2018

For my birthday my best friend got me a gift card for Sephora so I waited until I found a few things I really wanted and then made a small order! I thought I would share with you all what I got and the great deal I got on a couple of items!

So lets jump right in!

img_1414Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation-Shade Snow

I finally got the right shade of this foundation and I couldn’t be more happy with it! I will say this still has a yellow undertone to it but from watching different reviews of different Too Faced face products it sounds like most of their foundations and concealers are much more yellow based even when they claim to have neutral undertones. I do love this foundation however and it’s been a go to for the summer especially when I’m headed out somewhere in the heat and I know I need my face to stay all day!

Too Faced Melted Latex- Shade: Peek-a-Boo

When I ventured on to my Sephora App they were have a sale on the Melted Matte and Melted Latex lippies and I got them for only $10 each so of course I got two different shades! I really do like these latex lippies because you get the pay off of a lipstick with the shinny of a gloss. The one thing I have learned I need to do with all of these however is line my lips other wise they tend to bleed outside of my lip line which as we all know “ain’t cute”. But for more than half off I couldn’t pass these up!

Too Faced Melted Latex- Shade: But First, Lipstick

Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss- Shade: Pure Peach

I have really been into glossy lips the last few months and I had wanted to try one of these when they originally launched but I just couldn’t see myself spending $19 on a lip gloss so I passed. Well when I got the gift card I thought now was a good time to give it a shot because I wasn’t really spending my own money on it. I do really like this gloss but the scent it slightly over powering. The shade is really flattering for me and I love to use it as a topper for some of my lighter lip colors! It’s not sticky and leaves my lips feeling nice after I have worn it for some time. I am happy I purchased this but I don’t think I would repurchase this or any of the other colors.

Tatcha- The Deep Cleanse

I had some points saved up so with the purchase I made I decided to give this a shot as one of the 100 point perks. I have heard such great reviews about Tatcha skin care and I thought it would be nice to give a try. This product has a mild exfoliant in it which I have found really helps get my skin clean! I have really liked using this and even though it’s a sample size there is quite a bit in there to use. I have really liked it and I may look at getting a full size!

But that concludes my most recent Sephora haul! I know it wasn’t much but I thought I would share regardless! I really have been loving using all of these products! If you like seeing Sephora hauls even if they are small like this post and I will look at doing more of them when I can!

Make Up Tutorial : Full Face Colour Pop

With the latest launches from Colour Pop I now have the ability to share with you an one brand tutorial! I am so excited to bring on another tutorial and with such and affordable brand!

So lets get started!

As with anything you will want to moisturize your skin before applying anything thing else. I find this to be a big step in my make up routine so that I don’t have to much odd texture or weird area’s with my skin. I can definitely tell when I haven’t been taking care of my skin because my make up doesn’t apply nearly as well as it should!img_0782

Like I stated in my wedding make up routine I absolutely love the Glow Recipe Watermelon Moisturizer.

Ok now for the tutorial! I love that Colour Pop has come out with incredible face products! We are going to start with the All Star Matte + Blur Primer. This stuff smells like candy.img_1403 Like I stated in my last haul post about this I don’t know that this totally keeps my face matte because my skin has been acting up but it is really nice and I do enjoy using it.

img_1562

Next up depending on what I am feeling like doing I either choose to start with my eyes or my face. If I’m doing darker colors on the eyes then I start there. If I am doing more of an every day look I start with my face. Today because I am heading to work I am going to do more of an every day look.

After I am primed and ready to go I apply my foundation! I was so excited about this foundation and the match tool that Colour Pop offered!img_1564 And because of it I ordered the perfect shade! I am in the shade Fair 30. img_1566I like to apply my foundation first with a brush and then I blend it out with my sponge.

Next up is concealer and YES! I finally found the right shade! I am in shade img_1569Light 12 and now that I have been using it more I like to use Fair 06 to some specific spots to really pull some brightness to certain areas. img_1570

I like to apply this to the under eye’s, down my nose, cupids bow, chin and forehead. This helps to bring light to the center of my face. And I also blend this out with a sponge.

Now it’s time to set. I will set area’s where I put concealerimg_1573 with the Translucent Loose Setting Powder they offer.  If I’m feeling fancy I will do a bit of “baking” though I’m not the best at it but I try it every once in a while. With this I use my damp sponge to pick up some powder and press it into my skin over the concealer. I find that it really applies nicely and really sets my concealer.

From there I like to set the reimg_1575st of my face with the Light Pressed Powder foundation. This doesn’t really give off a whole lot of coverage and it makes my face look smooth without looking cakey! I really like it to help blend out the rest of the powders on my face.

At this point I like to finish up my face. I will do my bronzer, blush and highlighter.

The Step Right Up face duo with bronzer and highlighter has been one of my favorites recently and I feel like I have been using it like crazy! For blush I used an older palette that I have had from when Colour Pop first started dabbling in pressed powder formulas and it’s still one of my favorites. The blush is a nice bright pink and the highlight is a soft peachy pink that I absolutely love!

And now just take a moment for how beautiful these two highlights are together! I was so surprise I actually was able to get this to pick up in a photo! I don’t normally get this lucky but here we are blining it up!

Now before you scoff and say “I thought this was an everyday look!” this is pretty close to every day for me and it’s a Friday Every Day so a little bit extra at the end of a long week!

Alright who is ready for brows! Well I’m not going to do anything too in-depth because I was blessed with a decent brow shape and I just given them a little more structure and depth. Colour Pop offers really nice brow pencils with very fine points that I truly love! With the colors they offerimg_1584 I use two different ones. I use Blondie and Dope Taupe Precision Brow Pencils. I put the Blondie shade in the front part of my brows to give a more natural look and then I fill in the tail with the Dope Taupe. This shade is just slightly too dark for me so I don’t like to img_1587be too heavy handed because I really like a  more natural brow. I finish it off with the Brow Boss Clear Brow Gel!

img_1588-5And BAM! Brows!

It’s now time for the eyes! I love eyeshadow! I know not everyone likes to fuss with it on the daily but I absolutely love creating different looks even if they are just to wear to work! So for this I used the Fortune Palette which was the big warm tone palette they came out with earlier this year.

And just a reminder! I am not a professional by any means I just really enjoy doing my make up and having a good time with it! This also is what I would wear for an everyday look to work and in fact I’m wearing it today at work!

So to start I used the shade Mo Problems as my transition color. This shade comes off much more orange on the eye than it looks in the pan but I’m not made about it. I like to blend this in and build it up a bit.

Next is the shade Wiser. This one is lighter than the first but I used it to add some depth and another color to the crease. I tried to keep it a bit lower than the first shade I applied just so that it really just was adding in depth.

I personally don’t feel any eye look is complete without some sort of burgundy or red in my crease/outer corner! I absolutely love how it makes my green eyes pop! So I took the shade Tave and added that to my look.

Now it’s time fore SHIMMER!!! This palette has so many amazing and gorgeous shimmers to choose from including a duo-chrome shade. I personally decided to keep it simple and use the soft gold shade called Oracle. I always apply shimmers wet but these really don’t need any thing to help them look amazing!

To deepen up the outer corner I added a small amount of the shade Fortunate just to help blend the shimmer in and to give my eye a little more depth.

And just like that we are all finished! The only things left are setting spray, mascara and lipstick. One thing I have learned to do is to use my setting spray prior to putting on my mascara because for some reason I always end up with some sort of transfer and I just don’t have time for that!

So for my last three steps I used the All Star Setting Spray. img_1401Like I had said in my haul post this stuff smells like candy! The sprayer isn’t the absolute best I have used but I do really like how it sets my make up. I don’t stay matte the whole day but with some simple blotting I can take care of any excess oil.

To finish off the look the last Colour Pop product I used was the Ultra Satin Lip in the Shade Brooklyn. It’s a beautiful warm pink shade. I don’t wear it as much as I would like because sometimes I forget I have it but I thought it fit perfectly with my look today.  I also applied some mascara which is the only non Colour Pop product on my face today. I have a few good ones at the moment and a couple of samples I have been trying to use up so I used the Benefit Bad Gal Bang mascara today.

The finished looked:

Colour Pop Haul! : August 2018

Should this be any surprise?! I don’t think so!

So a little while ago Colour Pop dropped even more amazing goodies and I just couldn’t pass them up so I made another order!

Lets dive in and see what I got!

All Star Matte and Blur Primer

So finally Color Pop has come out with more face products to add to their complexion line! I was so excited for this and the other main product I got with this order. The primer has a really nice consistency and it applies nicely to the skin. I don’t know yet if it really keeps my skin matte just because I have been having some issues with my skin recently but I do really like and I think it’s a nice product! Plus it smells like candy!

All Start Face Setting Spray

A setting spray! I was so excited for this! The only thing I wasn’t too sure about was the sprayer because the last setting spray they came out with had a horrible spray nozzle that shot out in a stream into your face. This one is so much better! It’s not as good as some of my other high end spray’s but still really nice and I really enjoy it! I do notice that it doesn’t keep my face matte all day I end up with some oil and shine by late afternoon which is honestly normal for me unless I am using my high end products. This also smells really good! At first I thought it smelled a lot like citrus but the more I use it the more it smell the sweetness in it! I really love this and I have been using it almost every day!

No Filter Concealer- Shade Light 12

Finally! I found the shade that fits!!! It only took me three orders! This concealer really is as great as everyone says! I absolutely love how it applies and how it blends and how it holds up throughout the whole day! One thing I do notice in the afternoons is that I can get a little oily but I think this is in part to the fact that my skin has been acting up! I really do love this product and find it to be my go to concealer.

Super Star Loose Pigment Shadow- Shade Typhoon

So in order to get free shipping I needed to add a few extra’s to my cart so I hit the sale section and I found another loose pigment they have on sale! It’s a beautiful light white shade that in nice to add to just about any look as a pop of brightness in the inner corner or even all over the lid! I love to add nice bright shimmers to my lids and this one is really nice for it.

Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick- Shade: First of All

And of course I took a look at the sale lippies and this shade stood out to me! I love berry shades and I honestly will wear them all year round if I feel like it but I thought this would be a great addition to my collection for the coming fall and with this I was put just over the $30 mark for free shipping which you just can’t beat! Colour Pop has some of my all time favorite lipsticks and I use them all the time! This one will make a nice addition to my collection.

And with that I wrap up another Colour Pop haul/review! This is easily my favorite brand to work with and use and is by far the most inexpensive brand with such a high quality! Let me know have you gotten anything you like from Colour Pop recently? What do you think of all of their new face products?

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!

Sephora Haul Product Update

Now that I have had some time to test out all of the other products I have purchased  in my Sephora hauls I thought it was a great time to post a review with my thoughts on all of these goodies!

The items that stick out from my order first are the :

Glow Recipe Watermelon Pink Moisturizer and Glow Sleeping Mask

Both of these products are so amazing! I am in love! I have really oily skin so I have a hard time finding moisturizers that I love but these are incredibly amazing! The sleeping mask can turn my rough patches smooth and makes my skin feel amazing when I wake up in the morning and the moisturizer sits under makeup beautifully! I have found my brand new favorite duo!

Stila Glitter On The Go Liquid Eye Shadow Set

I absolutely love these!! This was the best purchase I could have made! For the price you can’t beat the this value set because you get three small size shades for the price of one large one! I mean how can you beat that! And the best part is you only use a small amount at a time! These really go along way and add the most amazing sparkle and shine to the eye. I now understand why so many people rave about these! They are worth every penny!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored With Shine Vol.2

Another value set of mini’s that was so worth every penny! I got my first Marc Jacobs gloss around Christmas when I had a gift card and I fell in love with how beautiful the shade was and how amazing it looked so when I saw this value set I couldn’t say no! These mini sizes are great for carrying in my purse with me and the color variety is so nice to use with almost any different lip color! This is a must have set!

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipsticks

An awesome free bonus in my order were these two liquid lipsticks from the Sephora Collection! The shades are so much fun and super wearable for me and the formula and consistency is really nice! for getting these two babies free I am surely not complaining but I really love these lippies! Such a great addition in my haul!

IGK Smoke & Mirrors Conditioning Cleansing Oil and Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm

I felt so specially getting these two full size hair products free in my haul as well! One thing I do want to note is that I believe Mistress product was renamed sometime in the time I got this and when I’m writing this because the packaging and line are the same but the product name is different. Any how, both of these hair products are awesome! I love to use the cleansing oil if it’s been one of those heavy dry shampoo weeks and it makes my hair feel smooth and soft and helps some with the detangling of my damaged ends. The Anti-Frizz Leave in Conditioner or Hydrating Hair Balm is really nice for helping with the hair drying process! I don’t blow dry my hair often because I have color treated hair but when I use this my hair always feels so soft and smooth. I really love these two products! But the price on them it slightly steep so I don’t know that I would pay the full price for these.

My other items were all in the peach collection which I review last month and you can read that here.  I also got quite a few samples I haven’t really kept track of so we will worry about those at a different time. I hope you liked the follow up to the products I got in my Sephora haul!

Colour Pop Haul : July 2018

Yes it is another Colour Pop Haul! What can I say! They have been dropping so many awesome products I couldn’t help but make a few orders!

So here is my most recent haul and review on the items I got!

Fortune Eyeshadow Palette

This palette is the sister to the Fame palette that I got in my last haul! Fortune has all warm tone colors, while the Fame palette has all cool tone shades. I was really excited to get the warm tones as I use a lot of warm tones now that I have learned to blend and build and make dimensional eye look! When I was beginning to dabble in make up I used to think of myself as strictly a cool tone makeup user and lover but I have finally seen the light and joined the warm tone mafia! This palette has so many beautiful warm tones both as matte and shimmer shades. The shade Miser is one of the most interesting shades in the palette with a warm terracotta red base and a duo-chrome blue-green shift! It looked amazing on the lid applied wet! I have been using the palette non-stop since I got it and I can’t put it down!

Next up we have the new dropped items from brand! These we all had been waiting for!

BOOM!

No Filter Foundation- Shade Fair 30

The world has been waiting for this for some time and here it is! The beautiful and amazingly priced foundation! First off I love how they came out with such an amazing shade range! I think they have 42 or something like that shades in both warm and cool tones. There are so many available to suit almost any skin tone and color. The website also offers a great matching tool that offers the ability to pick a shade you are in a popular foundation and it will tell you what your best Colour Pop Foundation match will be. I used this tool and was so impressed that it gave me my perfect shade! They also offer a “Find My Shade” option as well which allows you to pick you undertone and it gives you comparable options. I was so impressed with how well this matched and the formula is amazing! This is a medium to full coverage foundation which I love because one layer will cover my redness and it’s also buildable if I feel like I need more coverage in a certain area! I also love that a little bit goes a long way with this foundation. I normally can cover my whole face on a normal day with just one pump. The finish is what I would call a satin finish where it’s not super matte but not dewy either. This is quite literally my new favorite foundation and for only $12 you can’t beat it!

No Filter Sheer Matte Pressed Powder- Shade Fair

The next item part of their new No Filter Complexion line is this pressed powered. I have loved using this to set the outer area’s of my face. The nice thing about this powder is that it layers amazing over the liquid foundation without looking cakey! I have been loving this powder. I also like to use this when I am having a no make up make up day and just want to help with my redness on my cheeks and just even out my skin. This is a very sheer coverage powder but is quickly becoming my new favorite for setting my face! Oh and did I mention it’s only $9!

No Filter Setting Powder – Shade- Translucent

Talk about an amazing line up! They came out with three different shades of setting powders; translucent, banana, and translucent deep. This is a fantastic baking powder! I have been using it to set my concealer and I have been so impressed! It’s very finely milled and applies really smoothly. It also doesn’t look cakey on the skin which I appreciate and it really sets my make up! This is such an asset to their complexion line!

No Filter Concealer- Shade Fair 02

With the new launch of the No Filter Complexion collection they revamped their concealer shade range. I hadn’t had a chance to try out the concealer yet even though it’s been out for some time and is so highly raved about! And I can say I completely agree with all of they hype! This is only $6 and the formula is incredible. It’s not only light weight but also very creamy and pigmented! The shade I got unfortunately was waaaaay to light for me! Haha! I like my concealer to highlight as well as conceal and I thought I would just pick my own shade rather than listening to the match tool and unfortunately I picked wrong! What’s worse is that I ordered another shade Fair 06 because it’s darker and I thought it would be perfect for my skin color and again I was wrong! Fair 06 is still super light for my skin. It’s better than Fair 02 but still not the shade that I like. I am going to probably place another order and try out Light 12 to see if this is more of the shade I was looking for.

Large Foundation Brush

As part of the promotion they offered a free foundation brush with the purchase of the foundation. I haven’t gotten any of the new Colour Pop Brushes since they came out with their new line of brushes. I really love how high quality this brush is! I have been using it to apply my foundation before I blend it out with a blender and I love how evenly and nicely it applies to my face! I really need to get more of their brushes!

Amber Crystal Setting Spray

So I had just gotten this before it went out of stock. When these initially came out as the crystal line I thought the whole line was really cool but I wasn’t really on board with it all. But I thought since I was ordering a bunch of face products I should give the setting spray a shot as well. I got the Amber spray because it is supposed to have a refreshing peach sent. I however can’t seem to smell the peach when I use it. It does have a nice light smell which I like but the spray itself just isn’t a good one for me. When I have used it I notice that my face ends up much more oily by the end of the day and it really defeats the purpose of a setting spray for me if I’m getting shinny by the end of the day. On another note the sprayer on this little bottle isn’t very good! I have to hold the bottle like a foot away from my face to get it to make a nice fine mist and not shoot straight out onto my face. I am going to keep trying to use this but I don’t think it will stick around for long in my collection.

 

This concludes yet another Colour Pop haul and I am so impressed with their new No Filter Complexion line! I have been wearing the foundation very day for work because it is such a nice match for my skin and I absolutely love it! I will hopefully get the correct shade of concealer soon but until then I will keep trying to make what I have work!

Let me know if you have tried out the Colour Pop foundation or powders and what you think! Did the shade match tools work for you?

Too Faced Peach Product Review

Remember my Sephora haul from the VIB sale well here is the review on the peach products I purchased from Too Faced!

Let’s start with the product I was most excited for – The White Peach Palette!

img_0778

I had been waiting to purchase this for so long! It has been just sitting in my Sephora cart for probably about 6 months before I finally got it and I figured no better time than the spring VIB sale! I was so hyped to get this and try it out and looking at the shimmer shades I was just taken back and in such aww! I swatched them with my finger and was so excited because of how much pigment there was and how beautiful they came off using my finger. So the next day I went to use it on my eyes and I was so disappointed. The matte shades are no where near what they should be compared to the Just Peachy Matte’s palette. I had to dip my brush in so many times to even build up the pigment. Then the shimmer shades. They are really beautiful but nothing to write home about. The Peach Ice shade was so hard to apply to the lid even when I wet my brush and the Peach Passion shade wasn’t nearly as pigmented as I had hoped it would be when I applied it to the lid. So least to say I was really underwhelmed by this palette and I actually ended up  returning it.

Primed and Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer

img_0681

This stuff is incredible! Another item that has been on my wish list for some time and sitting in my cart just waiting to be purchased. I was so happy I finally made the purchase because this is my new favorite primer! I have very oily skin especially when the summer months start to roll around and it gets warm out and with this primer under my foundation I don’t look greasy and I don’t look shinny! Even if it’s an especially warm day with this primer I end up with more of a satin finish by the end of the day rather than looking like a butter ball turkey.  And of course this stuff is even more amazing when used with the peach foundation as well.

Which brings us to the next awesome product I finally purchased.

Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

Not only do these ones smell amazing they are beautiful on the skin. Now I don’t know how someone with dry skin will like this particular foundation because it is a matte foundation but I have been loving it! The only thing I regret is that I got the wrong shade for my skin tone. I thought ordering Porcelain for my pastey white self would be a good shade (yes I know it’s practically impossible to shade match online) but I was wrong! Procelain is actually deeper than I was assuming and is more orange. I end up mixing it with my wet and wild foundation to get a better match and it ends up looking beautiful. The other nice thing is that a little bit goes along way. And considering the price tag on this foundation I’m totally ok with that. Now I know $36 might not seem like a lot compared to other high end foundations but I’m a drugstore girl through and through and I don’t usually like to spend a lot on items that I know I will go through quickly. However this foundation is soooooooo worth the splurge!

img_0780Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray

This was the first of the peach products I tried and it is one of my favorite setting spray’s especially for the summer time! It’s got a liquid to powder finish and keeps my skin smooth and matte most of the day. Not to mention it has the amazing peach and sweet fig smell. This is a new bottle since I was almost finished with my first one. With this one you do need to shake it really well so because if you don’t it can end up with heavy white powder spots and could potentially ruin your look but as long as you remember to shake it well then this stuff is the best!

 

The last product I got as part of the peach line was the – Peach Blur Powder

This is raved about for many of the beauty guru’s I follow who have used this and I love it too! I was surprised that this is considered a translucent setting powder even though it has a peachy finish to it the peach color doesn’t come off on the skin. This also has the amazing ability to blur out my pores. I was in disbelief when I used it and watched my face just smooth over and look airbrushed! And to top it all off it smells amazing!

 

The Peaches and Cream collection from Too Faced it truly one of my favorites and I love that I finally took the time to purchase some of these awesome products! I was pretty sad that the White Peach palette didn’t turn out to be what I thought it could be but all in all I really love everything else I have.

Have you tried anything from this line? What is your favorite? Comment below and let me know!

ColourPop Haul!

I am so weak when it comes to new make up at ColourPop! And just wait until you see what I hauled this time!

I will say it’s just a small haul this time but the products are amazing and there is another palette I have my eye on that I think I might see in my near future! But for now here is what I got!

So let’s start with one of the reason that I decided to order! This shadow…It’s just stunning! For ColourPop’s birthday every year they come out with a new birthday shade that not only is full of sparkle but also complimentary to every skin tone and eye color! This year the shade is called Birthday Wish and is a gorgeous champagne base with lots of pink, violet and blue glitter that makes for a stunning shadow! I love the super shock shadows because the formula is unlike any I have every used and it’s amazing on the lid.

Next up we have two of the new Super Star Loose Pigments. I have the shades WKND and Cameo.  WKND is more of a neutral champagne shade that looks great as a highlight or an eyeshadow. Cameo is a peachy, pink, coral shade that just pops on the eyes! I am all about the peach shades though so this one was calling my name! These pigments look great on their own without any glitter glue or with out wetting my brush but if you really want a pop of the sparkle and shine on the lid then wetting the brush is the way to go! I have been loving these and considering getting a couple of the other shades.

Now for the main reason I placed my order! This amazing and beautiful palette! They have finally come out with a cool tone palette! The Fame Palette, I mean how gorgeous is this! There are 8 matte shadows and 8 shimmer shadows. And all of them are the amazing pressed powder quality that ColourPop puts out. I have been using this almost everyday since I got it because there are a lot of different looks you can create with this palette. About the only color I don’t think I have used is the dark gray color just because I’m not sure how to make it look good on my eye’s an not muddy. But I am still working on it!

So along with the Fame palette they brought out it’s sister the Fortune palette. It’s all the warm tone love in the world and I think that will be apart of my next purchase very soon!

 

So like I said just a small haul but still some amazing a great products!
