• Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara Review

    Hello everyone! Happy December! I can’t believe it’s the holiday season already. Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas has begun and the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping continues. Thankfully, I’ve completed all of my holiday shopping and I’m so glad I don’t have to deal with the crowds of shoppers! Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on the new Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara. In my opinion, the newer Covergirl mascaras haven’t been that impressive. I feel like they keep releasing mascaras with crazy looking applicator wands that make applying mascara more difficult. For instance, the Total Tease Mascara, which I reviewed here, makes sense in theory but when it came time…

  • Top 3 Dry Shampoos

      Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and saved a ton this Black Friday. In order to celebrate the holidays and spend time with my family, I postponed this blog post a few days. This week I’m sharing my all-time favorite dry shampoos and they each serve a different purpose in my routine. The first, which is my number 1 favorite dry shampoo of all time, is the IGK Jet Lag Dry Shampoo. It retails for $29 for a 6.3oz can and $14 for the 1.25oz can. According to the Sephora website: You want your hair to stand out, not your styling products, and this truly invisible,…

  • 5-Star Products Under $10 at Ulta

    Hello everyone! Today I have an Ulta haul/ first impressions! I challenged myself to find 5 star rated products under $5. This proved more challenging than I thought it would be but I ended up with 4 products under $5 and one product under $10. I couldn’t find a mascara $5 or under with a 5-star rating so that’s why this blog post is titled “5-Star Products Under $10 at Ulta.”¬†ūüėú Also, as a reminder, ratings are forever fluctuating. These items were are 5-star products when I purchased them but they could have changed slightly since then. Now let’s jump-in to my haul/ first impressions! The first thing I found…

  • Kylie Cosmetics Purple Palette vs. Wet N Wild Petal Pusher Palette

    Hello everyone! This week I’m comparing the Kylie Cosmetics Kyshadow Purple Palette and the Wet N Wild Petal Pusher Palette. After I ordered my Kyshadow¬†Palette, I was in CVS and saw the Wet N Wild palette. I thought, Omg! Some of those shades look¬†really similar to the Kylie Purple Palette!” To be clear, I’ll only be comparing some of the shade I thought looked similar to test whether or not they are dupes. I can do a full review of these palettes if you are curious, let me know!¬†ūüė䬆The Wet N Wild palette is an all shimmer palette, meaning none of the shades are matte. The Kylie palette, on the…

  • Covergirl Total Tease Mascara Review

    Hello everyone! This week I have another mascara review on the Covergirl Total Tease mascara! This mascara came out around the same time as the L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara and because of that, I haven’t heard much about it. I’ve already reviewed the Lash Paradise and you can read my review¬†here. This mascara retails for $8.99 at Ulta and comes in four shades (according to the Covergirl website). I purchased the Very Black shade from my local CVS. According to the Covergirl website, Full. Long. Refined. Sexy, teased lashes! Use the lash teasing mascara comb for ease and control to tease even the tiniest corner lashes for a full, voluminous…

  • Origins Original Skin Matte Moisturizer Review

    Hello everyone! This week I’m reviewing the Origins Original Skin Matte Moisturizer. I received a full-size container of this product from Influenster, complimentary for testing. It also came with a trial size of the¬†Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum and the Origins Original Skin Retexturing Mask. To get a true reading of these products, I’ve been using them for the past month. It takes about 3 weeks for your skin to adjust to new skincare products so I wanted to give these products a fair chance. This is how everything was packaged and sent to me: Let start out with the full-size product. The¬†Original Skin Matte Moisturizer retails for $34 and…

  • Lorac Pirates of the Caribbean Review

    Hello everyone! This week I have a review of some more items I got for my birthday! As a huge Disney fan, I love when they partner with cosmetics companies because, as Hannah Montana would say, it’s the best of both worlds! I get to play with amazing makeup that is themed with some of my favorite Disney movies. First, let’s talk about the eyeshadow palette. It retails for $52 and comes with 18 shades. According to the Lorac Cosmetics website: This palette features 18 brand-new PRO-formula eye shadows inspired by the film and a deluxe mini Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil in black to craft a smoky,…

  • Milani Cosmetics Contour & Highlight Duo Review

    Hello everyone! With the rising popularity of cream contour, I wanted to try out a drugstore version before diving into more expensive options. I don’t usually cream contour but thought I’d give it a try. I also threw in a bonus jonas review of the Make It Last Setting Spray since I’ve heard such good things about it! I decided to try this contour stick from Milani Cosmetics. Not only was it the most neutral shade I could find, but it also had a liquid highlight on the opposite end. This product retails for $11 and I bought mine from my local CVS. According to the Milani website, Contour &…

  • Liquid Lip Showdown: Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Formula vs. Cr√®me Formula

    Hello everyone! Ever since Kylie started branching out into different liquid lipstick formulas, I’ve been intrigued by how they all compare to each other. Obviously, a matte liquid¬†lip dries¬†down completely and will not transfer while her two newer formulas, the velvets and the cr√®mes, don’t dry down and aren’t transfer proof. I haven’t really had the chance to try out the cr√®me formula, which debuted with the KKW collection, and have been curious how they compare to each other. So, this week I’ll be putting the two formulas against each other to test out the differences between them and to see which one I might like better! Let’s start with…
