Dollar Tree E.L.F. Haul 11/16/17!!!


Hey everyone,

You guys will not believe what I’ve found at the Dollar Tree?!?! E.l.f. Cosmetics and not just the $1 or $2 items but the ones that retail for $4 on their website. There’s lipstick, lip lacquer, mascara, brushes and so much more.

Here’s what I picked up!!!

Aqua Beauty Molten liquid eyeshadow in Brushed Copper.

This is such a pretty shade. It’s perfect to just throw on for a simple look. This is still on the e.l.f. Website for $4.

Lip Lacquer in Burgundy and Matte Lip color in Rich red.

The lip lacquer is more like a lipgloss than a lacquer. It’s currently on their website for $2

Matte lip color in rich red is a gorgeous classic red lip color. This one is currently on their website for $3.

Lock On Liner and Brow Cream in Medium Brown.

E.l.f. Blush in Coy

The Lock On Liner and Brow Cream is the perfect shade for my brows but this was the only shade that they had in stock. They weren’t lying when they said Lock On, I can’t get the swatch off my arm. This is currently on their website for $4.

E.l.f. blush in coy is a really pretty shimmering shade that would be perfect for every day wear. This one is currently $2 on their website.

If I were to buy all of these on the E.l.f. Website I would have spent $15. I saved $10 thanks to Dollar Tree. I love that store.

I’m hoping to do a future post doing a full face of e.l.f. products. So look for that coming up soon.

Thanks for reading my post!!

Easy Everyday Glam Makeup


Hey everyone!!!

Being a stay at home mom to a sassy 2 1/2 year old can sometimes make it hard get your glam on. Not that you want to be glam everyday but it is nice once in awhile.

So, here is my easy everyday glam makeup!!

Step 1-

The easiest way to even out your skin tone is with a B.B. cream or tinted moisturizer.

Step 2-

Conceal don’t feel!!! All of us moms know concealer is what makes us look alive. I put this stuff everywhere, under eyes, around my nose and on my blemishes. Yep, 38 years old and I have more pimples now than when I was a teenager. Lol

Step 3-

Powder!! I always set my face with powder, especially when I’m using a B.B. cream. I feel that B.B. cream can rub off very easily and no one has time for that.

Step 4-

Blush!!! I love cream blushes. It gives your face a more youthful glow but be careful if you have large pores, it can make those stick out worse than a fake designer hand bag.

Step 5-

Highlight!!! My favorite part of face makeup is the highlighter. I want the astronauts to look down and see my glow. If using a cream highlighter be carful of the pores, they can end up looking like pot holes when you use to much cream highlight.

Step 6-

Brows!!! They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so frame those babies. My eyebrows are disappearing, I might need to put out a missing eyebrow alert. So, I need to fill mine in, if you have perfect eyebrows then you can skip this step and I hate you.

Step 7-

Eyeshadow!!! First make sure you prime your eyes, you don’t want your eyeshadow disappearing like my eyebrows.

I always start with my crease, I use a light to medium shade. Then I put a shimmery shade on my lids. The shimmery shade helps you look awake and gives it that glam look. Next is the outer V, I use a darker shade just in that area. It helps give your eyes more depth. Last but not least is the lower lash line. I always use the same shade from my crease and the dark shade.

Step 8-

Mascara!!! I’m a sucker for a good mascara and the Voluminous Lash Paradise is my holy grail. It makes my lashes fuller without drying them out and flaking.

Step 9-

Setting Spray!! As a busy mom we don’t have time to touch up our makeup, that’s why Setting Spray is very important. Simply spray your face and forget about it.

Step 10-

Lips!!! Lipstick is my favorite makeup product. I have recently been using LipSense. I love it!!! It literally lasts me all day and it doesn’t feel heavy or drying. This shade is Roseberry. No, I’m not a consultant but maybe one day I will take the plunge.

The final look!!!

This is the perfect look to wear while chasing your little ones around the house or the park. Why not make the other moms think you have so much time on your hands..lol

There you have it, everyday glam look in only 10 easy steps. If I can do it anyone can do it..lol

Have a great day!!!

Nivea Post Shave Balm


Hey everyone!

I’ve heard all the hype about the Nivea Post Shave Balm being an amazing makeup primer. So I finally decided to try it out for myself. I want to see if it’s worth the hype. I hope it is because it’s very inexpensive.

  
Stay tuned for my thought on this product. 

Thanks for reading my post. If you want to see my review on the Nivea Post Shave Balm, please follow 🙂

  

Essence Soft Touch Mousse Foundation 


Hey everyone!! So I recently picked up some Essence cosmetics at Target. Usually I would wait a little bit longer before I do a review on something I just hauled but this foundation is amazing and I knew that after the first time I used it. Plus it’s only $4.99. Yay!!!

 Here is a before picture  

 
Here is the after with the foundation  

 
I have the NYX Photo-Loving Primer on underneath.

This foundation makes my skin look amazing and it lasts all day. I also tried it without the primer and it still held up really well. I didn’t notice it breaking down or oxidizing. Which are two of my biggest turn offs.

One thing that I think makes this really good is that it gives the skin a soft focus look that helps blur out any imperfections. It’s a medium to full coverage and it was more of a full coverage on me. Usually when a foundation is full coverage, it feels heavy on my skin but this felt light weight.

 Here is the final look without any filters.

I will definitely be repurchasing this foundation. I have been looking for a holy grail foundation and I think I found it. 

Just remember, what works on my skin may not work on yours. That’s one thing I always try to remember when reading reviews.

Have you tried this foundation? What are your thoughts?

Target Beauty Box-April 2016


Hey everyone, I was so excited when I woke up at 5:30am and was able to purchase the Target Beauty Box. Well, I wasn’t that excited to wake up at 5:30..lol

I’ve heard this box can sell out really fast. Now I know why, you get some great products for only $7.

  Hello, Sunshine!!!!
 Look at all those goodies.. Yay!!!
 Laneige Waterbank Soothing Gel Mask. I’ve never used a mask like this before, so I’m really excited to try this.
 Maybelline Dream Velvet Gel-Whipped Foundation. I’m so happy the sample is in my shade because I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for a while now. Plus, it comes with a $2 off coupon.
 Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. I’ve used these before and really like how there’s no harsh chemicals. This sample is great to throw into your purse I case of makeup emergencies.
 Pantene Pro-V Air Spray. This is alcohol free hairspray. I never use hairspray in my hair but since I just cut my hair off, I may want to style it more. So this could come in handy.
 Marlowe Body Butter. I’ve never heard of this brand but it smells really good and made my skin very soft the first time I used this, I may want to buy a full size lotion.
 Hawaiian Tropics Island Sport Uktra Sport. This will come in handy this summer. I never have any sun screen when I need it.
 CeraVe Healing Ointment. I think I’m going to give this to my husband because his hands are always dry and cracking.
 Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Coquette Orchid. I love this lipstick. The packaging is so pretty and so is the color. I can’t wait to wear this out.
So that’s the April 2016 Target Beauty Box. I think it definitely worth $7. I really hope I can get my hands on May’s box.

Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash Review 


Hey everyone, in my recent Walmart Beauty Box I received the Dove Dry Oil Moisture body wash. I was really excited because I’ve been looking for a new body wash.

  From the Walmart website 

I love Dove body wash because it doesn’t dry out your skin. It leaves it feeling soft and smooth. 

This Dove body wash is a little different. The first thing I noticed was the smell. It smelled like a household cleaning product. I was grossed out by the smell, I almost didn’t use it, but decided that I should at least try it. 

When I poured it on my pouf it didn’t get that sudsy but usually body washed with Moisturizers in them don’t suds up as much as regular body washes. As long as it does the job, I don’t care about the suds.

After washing, I did notice my skin was softer but I just couldn’t get past the smell. I even thought that maybe my sample of body wash was bad. 

The formula is great but the smell is to much for me. I won’t be purchasing a full size but I do love Dove brand body washes.

Did anyone else notice the smell was a little off or was it just me?
