My Favorite Makeup Remover


Hey everyone,

I love makeup but one thing I hate is removing all my makeup at the end of the day. So, I like to make it as fast and easy as possible.

My favorite makeup remover is Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser. This stuff has been around since 1846, so you know this is some amazing stuff.


Ponds Cold Cream contains 50% moisturizer, so it leaves your skin feeling soft.

My favorite thing about this cleanser is that you don’t have to wash it off. You just rub it all over your face and then wipe it off with a cloth. I do use a wet wash cloth to remove the cleanser but you don’t have to. 

Not only is this moisturizing and easy to use but it actually gets off all your makeup. Even the most stubborn mascara. Plus, it’s extremely affordable.

I highly recommend that everyone tries this at least once. 

Thank you for ready my post. What is your favorite way to remove your makeup?

Wet n Wild Megaglo Makeup Stick- Concealer, Contour and Blush Review


Hey everyone,

Wow, that’s a long title..lol. I have been loving all the new Wet n Wild cosmetics. Wet n Wild is so affordable and the quality is amazing.

Today I’m going to review the Wet n Wild Megaglo Makeup Stick Concealer, Contour and Blush. I like to think of these types of products as easy everyday makeup.


When you are in a hurry in the morning but still want to look fabulous, than these are for you. Sometimes when I’m in a hurry, I will use the concealer stick as a foundation…lol

Pros-

  • Creamy and easy to blend
  • Gorgeous shades
  • Makes applying makeup fast and easy
  • Long lasting- I did those swatches and then washed the dishes and tried to scrub them off and they wouldn’t budge

Cons-

  • Concealer is a little to creamy for under the eyes. It’s best to use to sharpen up your contour.
  • Concealer needs to be set with powder.

I love these Megaglo Makeup Sticks. I think these are perfect for people just starting out with makeup or busy Moms on the go. 

As always these are very affordable at $3.99.

Equate Beauty Wipe Away The Day-First Impression 


Hey everyone,

If you are like me, you like to save money. So when I heard that Walmart has a makeup remover cleansing balm that’s comparable to Clinique’s Take The Day Off cleansing balm, I just had to try it. I can’t compare it to the Clinique version since I’ve never tried it but I can let you know what I think about the Walmart version.


I have read many mixed reviews on this product. So for $5, I thought way not try it out for myself. Wipe Away The Day is a balm that melts into a oil cleanser.

I have only used it once, so this is a first impression. I used it last night to take off all my makeup and to cleanse my face. After I used Wipe Away The Day, I used a toner and moisturizer.


Here is my makeup from yesterday. I look human again because I’ve been sick..yuck..lol


Here is a picture of me this morning, I haven’t washed my face or anything. No makeup ring under my eyes.. yay!!

Pros-

  1. Took off all my makeup. I even used toner after and there was no makeup left on the cotton round.
  2. It left my skin feeling soft and smooth not oily like I thought it would.
  3. Very easy to use. Rub it on dry skin and then wipe it off with a warm washcloth.

Cons-

  1. It says it doesn’t have a smell but it does smell like plastic. Which smells horrible.
  2. It says to avoid eye area, which sucks if you want to remove your eye makeup. I did use it on my eyes and it does put a oily film on your eyes that’s annoying.

I think this is a good product so far but I only used it once and who knows how my skin will react to repeated uses. For only $5 why not try it out and see if you like it.

Wet n Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder- Review 


Hey everyone,

Well, by now you all know my obsession with Wet n Wild. I can’t help it, it’s great quality and very affordable. 

Today I’m going to review the Wet n a Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder. 

Here is the description from the Wet n Wild website-

Your smartphone just met its makeup match. Pack this genius pressed powder in your bag for endlessly amazing photos every time. Light-diffusing pigments give your skin a veil of silky natural looking perfection in photos and IRL. Wear it alone, on bare skin or over Photo Focus foundation for a flawless finish. 
Sets makeup with an unbelievably soft, satin finish

Reduces shine throughout the day

Each shade covers a range of skin tones


I have the shade warm light. When I first looked at it, I thought it was going to be to dark since I’m very fair. 



It turned out to be the perfect shade, it brightens up my skin without it looking to crazy. It does come in 8 shades and each shade works for a couple different skin tones.

With my Younique business I take a lot of selfies and I haven’t had any problems with this powder. It makes my skin look flawless in photos. 

This powder is so soft and silky. This has been my favorite powder that I have used in a long time. Especially since I have aging skin and it doesn’t settle into my fine lines.

I highly recommend trying out this pressed powder, it’s only $4.99 but worth so much more.

What is your favorite pressed powder?

Recreating Makeup Looks


Hey everyone,

Back in August, I started my journey with Younique. I have loved every minute of this adventure. I have met so many wonderful people along the way. I seriously love all my Y-Sisters. Okay, enough with the mushy stuff..lol

One of my favorite things to do is find photos of makeup looks and try to recreate them using Younique. I have only done a couple so far but it’s so much fun.

Here are a couple looks that I recreated-


Here I’m wearing the eyeshadow pigments in Glamorous and Devious. Plus, chipper from palette #1.


I recreated this halo eye using palette #1. I love how this turned out. 

I’m not a professional makeup artist but you don’t have to be. I have a passion for makeup and making women more confident in themselves. Whether it’s through makeup or encouraging them to follow their dreams. Never give up on something that makes your life more enjoyable. 

If you would like to follow my journey, here is the link to my Facebook page. Soon I will be doing videos on my page and maybe YouTube.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post.

Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation Review


Hey everyone,

Can you believe it’s February already? Where has the time gone? 

Recently, I purchases a bunch of the new Wet n Wild makeup. They have been stepping up their game lately and have come out with some really great products.

The Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation is one of those great products.


Wet n Wild Description-
Your skin, only better. Our new high-performing, skin-perfecting foundation underwent major road testing under seven different photo lighting conditions to deliver flawless camera-ready makeup every time. Specially made with a matte, light-diffusing complex to give your skin #nofilter perfection. 

High-performing, breakthrough formula

Featuring light-adjusting complex to help prevent white cast in photos

Tested under 7 light conditions with and without the use of flash

This foundation is medium to full coverage and comes in 20 shades for only $5.99.

One of my favorite features of this foundation is the applicator. I love that I can just take the spatula looking thing and smear it all over my face..lol. I hate getting foundation on my hands.


Before-


After-


For only $5.99 this foundation is amazing. I love the coverage it gives me. My skin is very red and splotchy and it cover all of that beautifully. The only thing that I don’t like is that it can make some of my dry patches stick out. I think if I was to moisturize before applying the foundation, I wouldn’t have a problem with the dry patches. Another thing I have noticed is that my skin keeps breaking out but that just may be from hormones. 

I would definitely recommend trying this foundation out, it’s only $5.99 and a lot of times Rite Aide or Walgreens have Wet n Wild buy one get one half off. Who doesn’t like saving money? 

Have you tried this foundation yet? What are your thoughts?

Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
