Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation Review


Hey everyone,

Lately I’ve been trying out a bunch of different foundations. I heard a lot of good stuff about the Vitalist Healthy Elixir from Covergirl. So, I was excited to try it out.

Description from Covergirl Website-

Hydrate your skin while keeping it looking flawless with COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation. Finally a hydrating, vitamin-infused formula for beautiful, buildable coverage that glides on smoothly for a flawless look. This liquid foundation is infused with Vitamins E, B3, B5, SPF 20 plus a special antioxidant and vitamin complex. Give your skin a health and luminous glow. Part of our Vitalist Healthy Elixir family.

It sounds like an amazing foundation. It has a ton of good reviews. A lot of the beauty influencers rave about this foundation. But I should have known when I picked it up that the lightest shade they had at the store, 705 ivory looked like it might be to dark for my pale skin. Which is the lightest shade they carry in this line.

If this foundation actually stayed the same shade as when I applied it, it wouldn’t have been so bad. But after about 10 minutes or so, it oxidized so bad that I looked like an Oompa Loompa.

When first applied.. It was a little dark but I could work with it.

After it sat on my skin for awhile, it turned darker, which wouldn’t have been so bad if they had lighter shades.

The formula is great. Perfect for summer, it gives your skin a healthy glow. This would work out great for medium or dark skin tones.

I’ve tried mixing this with different foundations but it doesn’t work. Maybe when I get a tan, it will look better.

If they decided to come out with the foundation for lighter skin tones, I would definitely try it out again. But for now, it’s a pass for me.

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

Thanks for reading my post!!

LipSense Review 💄


Hey everyone,

If you know me, then you know that lip products are my favorite makeup item. So when my friends started talking about LipSense, I just had to try it. I’m not a distributor but I do love the product.

What is LipSense- It is a long lasting lip color. It’s not a lipstick or a stain. It’s a completely different product that bonds with your lips on a molecular level.

What is in LipSense- LipSense is made from natural materials that are good for your skin. It’s made in the USA and contains no wax, lead, gluten, animal byproducts or GMO’s. It’s also vegan and cruelty free.

How long does it last- One application of LipSense can last 4-18 hours. One tube of LipSense can last up to 6 months if you were to use the same color everyday. One tube equals to 4 tubes of lipstick.

How do you apply LipSense-

I currently own 3 colors of LipSense. Starting from the top- Roseberry, Lexie Beary and Fly Girl. So far Roseberry is my favorite.

I suck at swatches and those are going to be on my arm all day..lol

When you first order LipSense you buy the starter kit. In the starter kit you receive the color of your choice, glossy lipgloss and oops remover. The starter kit costs $55. After you order the starter kit the lip color is $25 and lipglosses are $20.

If throughout the day your lips start to feel dry, just apply some of the lipgloss and the dry feeling will disappear.

I’ve really fallen in love with LipSense. I love that it’s long lasting, especially since I’m a busy mom and don’t have time to be worrying about my lipstick rubbing off on my daughter. I can literally kiss her all day and won’t see any of my LipSense on her face lol.

One thing I do need is more colors. They have over 70, so I shouldn’t have a hard time find more colors to love 💕< strong>My friend Becky is my LipSense “dealer”. She’s gorgeous, sweet and knows everything about LipSense and all the other amazing products from Sengence.

Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Palette Look and Review!!


Hey everyone,

How’s everyone today? Here in Michigan it’s snowing like crazy. I’m sick of winter..lol

If you read my last post then you know that I just bought the New Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes. I’ve been playing with them a lot and I love them. I think Wet N Wild in general is an amazing company. They make wonderful products and keep them affordable.

So, I will start with the look I did using mostly Wet n Wild products.

I started out by priming my face with Wet n Wild Coverall face primer

Next I used the Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation

Next I used the Megaglo Concealer stick and blush stick.

After that I used the Halo liquid highlighter on my cheekbones.

I set everything with the Wet n Wild Photofocus pressed powder.

My eyebrows were next. I used Makeup Revolution eyebrow palette.

I primed my eyelids with the Wet n Wild eye primer.

I used the new Wet n Wild Rośe All Day eyeshadow palette.

I used the dusty rose shade in my crease and the dark rose shade on my lids. Then I put the dark burnt orange shade on my lower lash line. I used the lightest shade as my brow bone highlight.

I sprayed my face with the NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray

I used the Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara and then finished off the look with Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in the shade Lover

I really like the new Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes. The formula is wonderful. They are very pigmented and blend wonderfully. I love the color selections, you don’t normally see those types of shades in drugstore eyeshadows. I definitely recommend trying these palettes out for yourself. They are only $4.99!!!!

Thanks for ready my post.

This is the most amazing mascara that I have ever used. It gives my lashes volume and length while also keeping them soft. How do they do that?!?!?

I go through bottles of this like it’s water…lol. This micellar water takes off all my makeup without drying my skin out. I love it!!

3. Perfectly Posh Citrus KISS Lip balm- $5

Citrus Kiss Lip Balm

I have incredibly dry lips, it’s horrible. I used the Perfectly Posh Citrus Kiss Lip balm every morning and night. It keeps my lips hydrated and so soft. I also like that it’s all natural.

2. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Moroccan oil- $4.89

I have been using this oil forever. I always use it after I wash my hair. It makes my hair so shiny and sleek. My hair is usually frizzy, so this helps so much.

1. My all time favorite beauty product is something I’m rather new at using but I know that I will always use it and love it.

It’s LipSense!!!!

Lip products are my all time favorite beauty product in general. Then when you pair that with a long lasting formula, I’m hooked for life. I’m pretty sure I’m done with lipstick and will stick with LipSense from now on.

Review-OGX Kandee Johnson !!


Hey everyone,

Most beauty lovers know Kandee Johnson, she’s the sweet beauty guru who is absolutely amazing. Kandee is one of the very first beauty gurus I started watching and got me interested in makeup.

When Kandee came out with her collaboration with OGX, I was so excited. I’ve never used OGX hair care products, so I didn’t really know what to expect. I usually use really cheap hair products and it shows.

When I was in Walmart awhile ago, I saw a display for the shampoo and conditioner. After standing there smelling shampoo and conditioner for about 10 minutes, I decided on the candy gumdrop scent.

This is the description from the Walmart website-

• Helps hydrate strands with fruity gumdrop notes

• Vanilla sugar sprinkles leave tresses pleasantly scented

• Sulfate free surfactant

• Safe for color-treated hair

• Suitable for all hair types

  • The scent is amazing. It definitely smells like candy.
  • The shampoo and conditioner leave my normally dry hair, soft and manageable.
  • The scent lingers, so I can’t stop smelling my hair. I’m pretty sure I look crazy.

I’m definitely loving this shampoo and conditioner and want to continue using OGX products.

Have you tried the Kandee Johnson OGX collaboration?

What are your thoughts?

Thanks for reading my post!!

NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder-Review


Hey everyone,

I’m in love and I don’t care who knows..lol. I guess you can see how this review is going to go. Highlighting is so popular right now. If they can’t see your glow from space, you’re doing it wrong. 

A new trend in highlighting is duo chrome highlighters. Shades like purple, pink and blue are showing up more in collection. I’m loving this trend.

One of my new favorite highlighters are the NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powders. I currently own two, twilight tint and lavender steel. They come in five shades and retails for $7.99.

After seeing how popular purple highlighters are I really wanted to purchase the lavender steel shade but when I got to the store twilight tint caught me eye. It’s gorgeous, especially if you’re pale like me.

After falling in love with twilight tint, I just had to purchase lavender steel. I like lavender steel but twilight tint is amazing. The lavender shade does work with my skin tone but it doesn’t pack as much glow as twilight does.

These go on smooth and last a long time. These are very buildable. You can go from a subtle glow to a blinding glow.

I recommend checking out this highlighter.

What is your favorite highlighter?
