Current Favorite Pick Ups
I went to Marshalls and picked up these two things.  The aqua makeup brush cleaning mat was only $6.  Sigma beauty sells a makeup brush cleaning mat, but I feel like it’s so expensive.  This was $6 and did the job.  It cleaned my brushes just fine 😊.

The other product I bought is a $2 fiber mascara (YES $2) that I am actually not allergic to!  It made me look like I had falsies on.  It is by Max Makeup Cherimoya.  I wish I had a picture!

Because makeup

If you don’t follow me on Instagram, I just posted this, this morning!  Of course an Ulta haul!  You guys saw the gold illuminator yesterday on my face.  I’m actually going to try using it later this evening without mixing it with foundation.  Everything else, I will swatch tonight for a post tomorrow!  I got light and dark brown matte eyeshadow a because I’ve been looking for one to do a simple every day makeup look…and then the two at the top are baked shadows and I’ve been trying to find a wine color or burgundy and finally found one!  Yes, all NYX products ❤️ for the first time, no lip products!  What has this world come to?!

I don’t know if you ladies know, but NYX just came out with a lot of new products, such as, several new colors for their soft matte lip Creme, but the colors I wanted (Dubai and Rome) were out of stock! 🙁  I will most likely order from the Ulta website.  I picked up their liquid contour kit which is the box next to the makeup pads and I got it in the color almond.  I’ll try and use this tonight and swatch it for the post tomorrow.

Enjoy beauties and happy hump day!

MAC Monday

Over the weekend, I wanted to try a new foundation & MAC’s prep & prime that everyone has been raving about!  I bought MAC’s prolong wear foundation & I really like it a lot!  It’s not their fullest coverage (I asked for the one down from full coverage) because I didn’t need the full.  I’m in the color NC35.  It felt light weight to me & the color matched really well.

As for the prep & prime, love everything about this!  The packaging is even cute.  The box, as you can see from the picture above is sparkly ? as for the product, it’s amazing!  My makeup stayed on long and if you like a dewy look, it’s really good for that type.  I only sprayed my face once because it is THAT functional.  It sprays out really well & you can even turn the top to lock and unlock.  Definitely invest in this!  It was only $22, less than the foundation.  I wish they had the different prep & prime sprays that smelled like rose or coconut…I believe, but this definitely works!  You can use it before you do your foundation routine and to set your makeup. ?

Happy Monday beauties

MOTD: Semi-Sweet

Too Faced Semi-Sweet chocolate bar

Crease: Frosting

Lid: Caramel

Outer corner: Truffled

Inner tear duct: Butter Pecan

Highlight: Coconut Creme

Eyeliner: MAC’s gel liner

To achieve the straight line look, I took a piece of tape to both eyes & placed it from the corner of my eye to the end of my brow so when you start doing your makeup, the excess makeup and winger liner is on the tape.  Once you peel the tape off, you get a straight, clean line above ?

Ulta Haul

I am obsessed!  Nope just a beauty blogger ?? so I don’t know if you ladies know, but I want to collect all of the melted lipsticks, minus the metal ones.  My melted lipsticks today are in Melted Candy & Melted Jelly Donut.  I also wanted to try NYX’s liquid liner because it has a very thin wand. I would like to see if I can do a phenomenal wing ? I also wanted to try NYX’s glam liner & I bought it in a green glitter for the holidays (doing a winged liner tomorrow), and a glitter black liner.  I bought another liquid suede from NYX in “Tea & Cookies.”  Their liquid suede are awesome, the color stays on all day!  Then I picked up the Too Faced’s Love Flush in How Deep Is Your Love.  Since the L’oreal’s Voluminous mascara has been a favorite of almost every beauty blogger, I decided to try it out for myself!  Lastly, I picked up the duo lash adhesive because it was on sale and I might use it tomorrow.
Enjoy all of these goodies beauties.  I should have a MOTD tomorrow!
