Current Favorite Pick Ups

https://mybeautyroomx3.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/enlight4.jpg
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!

What’s in my Travel Skincare Routine

I like to carry all of my Arbonne skincare routine with me when I go anywhere for the weekend.
First, I have Arbonne’s smooth cleansing facial wash. Leaves my skin feeling great and takes off my makeup. Next, I use the serum from Arbonne, which if I’m in a rush in the morning I just use serum and moisturizer. Followed by the eye creme. I don’t know what I would do without this. After the eye creme, I use the moisturizer with SPF 20. One pump of the moisturizer is more than enough. He gold/Orange round jar on the left is Arbonne’s night cream and it’s one of my favorites. It’s moisturizing and does what it needs to.

The next morning, I’ll use the same products (minus the night cream) and use Arbonne’s makeup primer, which is one of the best I’ve used, and I’ve tried so many already. This one does not make my skin feel oily. Followed by the primer, I use Arbonne’s liquid foundation that feels very light weight. I feel like I have nothing on my face and it’s full coverage. Then I’ll just use translucent powder to set everything in place.

Favorites!

I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been in a slump lately.  Hoping this will get me out of it now that I have time to dedicate to blog.  I’m hoping for a post 2 or 3 times a week!  Going for 3 times a week.  I haven’t done a “Favorites” post in sooooooo long so here we go!

  1. Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation
    Arbonne FoundationThis is my favorite foundation!  It is weightless and 100% vegan!  It doesn’t irritate my skin at all.  I can wear it from morning to night and not feel a thing.  With other foundations, it would irritate my skin by the end of the day, but this one does not make me feel like I’m wearing makeup.  I am in the color neutral beige, but I usually have to buy another one because I get super tan in the summer.  It is literally the best foundation I have ever used.  You can order your foundation here!

    2. Arbonne Makeup Primer
    Arbonne Primer
    Best makeup primer ever!  It is not oily and works like it needs to!  For those who don’t know, the Arbonne brand is pure, safe, and beneficial.  There are no dyes, no parabens, no animal products, etc.  As we are all getting older please be careful what you are putting on your skin.  26 seconds is all it takes for the chemicals in your personal care products to enter your bloodstream.

    3. Arbonne the Real Conceal
    Arbonne Concealer
    Love this concealer!  Just like the foundation, it is light weight.  Arbonne has seven different shades and they match perfectly, and just like the foundation, I will have to get two different colors because of the summer time.

    4. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Palette
    Rainforest of the Sea
    As you all know, I have a problem and I love neutral palettes.  😀  I can’t help it!  It is very pigmented though.  I love this palette!  Tarte has stepped up their game when they created the Rain Forest of the Sea line.  I feel like the pink and purple are like mermaid colors, I love these colors and they are all shimmer!  I got this from Sephora, and it retails for $36.

    5. Milani’s Matte Lip Creme (Adorable)
    Amour Matte lip creme
    Probably the perfect nude lip.  It is also the dupe for Kylie’s Candy K lip color.  I think this retails for $6-$8 vs. Kylie Cosmetics $29.  I love this color and wear it all the time.  Definitely check out more colors from Milani.

    6. NYX HD Finishing Powder
    NYX setting powder
    HOLY GRAIL.  The only finishing powder I use.  For $10, that’s a steal!  The perfect makeup setter.  My makeup stays and is matte.  It doesn’t dry out my face.  I got this at Ulta, but you can also get it at Target or wherever they sell NYX products.  This is my favorite drugstore brand.

    Thank you all for reading!  I am making it my goal to blog three times a week so I will hold myself to that.  If you want, you can drop some ideas down below in the comments, and I will try my best to accommodate it!

    Happy Monday

Glow Kit!

It’s here!!!  I’ve jumped through a lot of hoops to try and get this Glow Kit, and I finally have it!!!!  It is sold out at Sephora online and in stores, it is not sold at Ulta either.  It retails for $40.  My favorite vlogger Nicole Guerriero finally got her dream come true and did a collaboration with Anastasia Beverly Hills!  She created her very own, beautiful glow kit with six shades!
The six shades are beautifully pigmented and she named them herself.  Here are swatches of them.  They are not only highlights, but you can use them as eyeshadows as well.
From top to bottom is: Kitty Kat, Forever Young, Day Dream, Forever Lit, Glo Getter, and 143.  Kitty Kat is like a nude pink, Forever Young is a light nude color, Day Dream is a very bright pink, Forever Lit is obviously white and one of the best highlights for the cheeks and inner tear ducts, Glo Getter is a gold, and 143 is a bronze.

Get this while you can!

Genius Ultra

#arbonne

Hello all!  It’s been way too long and I’ve been way too stressed.  I’ve had a lot of cheer related events going on and our season is still not over.  So to deal with the stress, I’ve been pampering myself with the Genius Ultra from Arbonne!

You can purchase the Genius Ultra by itself, but who wouldn’t want the products to go with it.  The three products that I received (Arbonne is running a special right now on this, until supplies last) is the firming neck cream, the serum, and lifting and contouring eye cream.

I wash my face with my Arbonne smoothing facial cleanser and then use the eye cream under my eyes.  I dot it all under my eye and use the Genius Ultra in circular motions to apply the cream.  Before I apply the eye cream, I use the serum since it makes my face firm.  I let it dry and let my skin absorb it and then I use the eye cream.  The eye cream delivers the appearance of a more lifted, awakened skin.  It tones the skin and restores a firmer look to the eye area.

Not only do you have to use the Genius Ultra with the eye cream, but with any of your moisturizers.  The device has three levels of warmth (yes, it warms up and makes your face feel awesome).  You’ll want to pat any remaining product on to your skin, do not rub.  After you are finished, you’ll want to clean the Genius Ultra with a soft cloth.

As for the neck cream, I use this before putting on any moisturizer.  This neck cream helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles.  It has become a favorite of mine.  The entire RE9 Advance set from Arbonne is what I’ve replaced my full morning and night routine with.

Mini Haul

I had $50 to spend at Ulta so of course, I wanted to try some new products from NYX.  I have one product not pictured, which is the Honey Dew.  I’ve already used it and love it.  No, it is not sticky if you were thinking that 😄 I’ve also already tried the Totak Control foundation and I love that too.  It is a dropper foundation.  If you’ve tried MAC’s lightweight foundation, it’s just like that, but cheaper!  It retails for about $13.  It’s full coverage & it’s lightweight.  I feel like there’s nothing on my face when I have it on.

I haven’t tried the illuminator stick yet, but it’s such a great copper color.  Here is a swatch below:

I wanted to try their eyebrow wand.  Ive never done my eyebrows before so thought I would give this a whirl.  The best thing I bought is the Tarteist Pro To Go.  The colors are gorgeous and I will be creating a Valentine’s Day look with this palette!

I LOVE THESE COLORS!  This little palette retails for about $23.  My favorite color is the gold in the middle and the shiner color on the very bottom.  I like all of these colors though.  Everyday and night look ❤️

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR! (:

Sorry for the hiatus, but I was sick for about a week and that never happens.  I’m only usually sick for about one or two days.  It happened New Years Eve night and it turned into a never ending cold.  Thankfully it’s over!

I have quite some gifts I want to show you all and talk about, but that is for a couple days later this week.  I actually have quite a few products to write about so just stay tuned and sit tight.

makeup-forever-nude-palette

I purchased this back in December when I was Christmas shopping for one of my friends, and came across this beautiful palette.  It is Makeup Forever Artist Shadow Palette Volume 1.  Yes, super long name.  I love all of the colors, and it is one of my favorite nude palettes.  I have a problem with purchasing nude palettes because they are all different to me.  The colors are not the same as the one in Lorac Pro’s palette or the Naked 2 Palette.  This palette retails for $44 at Sephora.  Swatches below.
mkaeup-forever-swatch*(Disclaimer: This picture does not belong to me).

The colors are gorgeous (:  They are all very pigmented.  It is perfect for day time and night time looks and if you wanted to create a smokey eye.

In the first picture above, I also have a beauty blender pictured.  Okay, I know I’m super late in the beauty blender game.  I couldn’t justify spending $20 on one, but I finally bought one, and OMG, LIFE CHANGING!  Literally, for all my beauty blender lovers out there, I know why you love this so much!  For me, I don’t have to use a lot of product because the blender is really good at distributing my foundation all over my face.  I started out using a blender from Ulta and you can definitely tell the difference.  I like my real techniques beauty blender from Ulta, and I still have it because I like the shape of it and it gets/blends under my eye really well, but using the actually beauty blender brand does wonders.  The beauty blender retails between $20-$25 depending on which one you want to get.  You can purchase one at Sephora.

Well, that’s all for today, hope you enjoyed this and please leave any questions or comments below. (:
