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!

Tarte Thursday

I just went to Ulta and picked up a couple things.  I was only supposed to go get my favorite hair spray, but they stopped carrying it…sad day 😕  Instead, I found a new palette and I’ve always wanted the rose gold eyeliner from Tarte.  The eyeliner is the Tartist Pro glitter liner and it retails for $24.  The palette is called “Don’t Quit Your Day Dream.”  It retails for $29.  I will do a look with these two products this weekend and post it either Sunday or Monday.  I will be at cheer camp this weekend and won’t be home until about 3:30-4 on Father’s Day.  Here a couple of pictures!

Happy Thursday all!  I’m hoping to have a new YouTube video soon!

Arbonne, beauty

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

Makeup Revolution

makeup-revolutionMakeup Revolution Fortune Favors the Brave Ultra 30 Eyeshadow Palette.  Whew!  That’s a long name for it!  I just call it the Makeup Revolution Fortune, you’ll know what I mean (: It has 30 colors and half are matte and the others are shimmer.

Favorite Fall Lipsticks

FALL IS HERE!  I’m so excited since this is my favorite season and birthday month! (September 8th) 🙂  Here are my favorite fall lipsticks for this season…

1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme: Copenhagen
Retails for $6.  I usually get these at Ulta.  This color has more pink/red to it.

2. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme: Translyvania
Also retails for $6.  Transylvania is a little more purple than Copenhagen so it is darker.

3. NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick: Vintage
(Not my picture)  This retails for $7.  It’s awesome finding drugstore brands for cheap and these are dupes for other high-end lip products.
Vintage

4. Sephora Collection: Truth or Dare
I think this retails between $12-$16, but I love the color!  More pink in it, but it is a dark color.
Truth or Dare

5. Too Faced Melted: Berry
Retails for $21.  If any of you know, I want to collect all of the Melted products!  I have about 7 of them so far, and I love all of the colors! 🙂

MORPHE & MARY KAY

  
So Morphe had a sale on their brushes and I HAD to get my hands on the 35O palette!  Picture of the palette tomorrow, for sure!  Can’t give all the surprises away!  I got a blending brush (MB13) and a delux fan brush (MB33). First impression of these brushes are that they are super soft!  I needed a great fan brush for my illuminator ? the Mary Kay stuff if a makeup eye remover which is one of my favorite removers and then I wanted to try their “Thinking of You” lotion.

Happy super bowl/Mardi Gras/Chinese New Years weekend!  Be safe y’all!

Glowy/dewy MOTD

 
 

So I wanted to try NYX’s illuminator born to glow, and this stuff is amazing.  I have an Ulta haul to show you ladies, but I’ll save that for tomorrow.  I did get the illuminator when I went to Ulta though.  The color is in gold.  I wanted to try mixing a pinch of this with my foundation to get the result of glowy or dewy skin.  A pinch of this goes a long way!  I really like the feel and color of this so I hope you guys have a chance to try it out!  I also would like to use the illuminator by itself so I’ll put up a post about that whenever I try it out!

Face: MAC prep + prime, MAC prolong wear foundation, and NYX illuminator born to glow
