Ipsy March ‘Tres Jolie’🎀

  This month’s bag is a classy, light pink with a black net-like design on the front with a rose gold zipper. I really like this one, it’s different and can fold back up to become an extra big makeup bag!

🎀Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow Marisa 

This is a single shadow from Doucce’s Freematic line where they have a selection of matte and shimmer shadows to build your own quad palette ($35). The shade Marisa is a rosy-gold color and is pretty soft when applied dry but becomes very opaque and almost metallic looking when applied wet. The shade is pretty however, unless applied wet the gold flecks spread easily and get into the crease.

🎀Elizabeth Mott Blending Brush ($15)

This is a cruelty-free, vegan brush with synthetic fibers. It feels sturdy and good quality-the bristles are very soft yet pick up a lot of product and just makes for a perfect crease brush.

🎀Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint Delish ($20, for full size)

This liquid lipstick in Delish is described as a rosy mauve color, it’ll suit many people and is perfect for day or night wear. The formula of this liquid lipstick is thin, dries fast, and actually very comfortable. It didn’t dry out my lips and lasted awhile before beginning to fade in the inner part of the lips. 

🎀Model Co. Eye Define Crayon Liner ($14, for full size)

This retractable black eyeliner is cruelty free and vegan and described as highly pigmented, water resistant formula, and with a soft, silky texture. It is quite pigmented and doesn’t rub off easily even with water but, the texture is pretty stiff and I had a hard time getting a pigmented upper eyeliner even with squishing the tip down. It glided on the water line a lot easier, though I hardly wear eyeliner in the water line.

🎀Mudmasky Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask ($74, for full size)

This detox mask is made to refine, brighten the skin while keeping it hydrated and smooth. You are supposed to apply a thin layer and leave it on for: 7 min/dry skin, 9 min/normal-combo skin, 11 min/oily skin. It’s great that they give us this info so that each person can cater to their skin type’s needs. The mask is very thin and a little rough to apply with the granules it has in it but it dries quickly and removes easily. My skin did feel purified without the dryness that most leave behind. They also say to wait 10 min. to apply moisturizer.



 

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation ▫️Review

Details

  • $5.99-1 fl. oz/30 mL
  • 20 shades
  • Lightweight, thin consistency 
  • Medium-High medium coverage

Wet n Wild says: Your skin, only better. Our new high-performing, skin-perfecting foundation underwent major road testing under seven different photo lighting conditions to deliver flawless camera-ready makeup every time. Specially made with a matte, light-diffusing complex to give your skin #nofilter perfection. 

Product: This foundation comes in a glass bottle with a plastic spatula applicator. There are 20 shades in the line but unfortunately most stores I’ve been to carry about 10 shades. It has a runny texture and so doesn’t dry right away. The best tools I’ve used to apply this has been a beauty blender or flat-topped buffing brush such as the Elf Powder brush and the Real Techniques Expert Face brush.

Application: I’ve been using this foundation for weeks now and I love it! It feeels very lightweight when applied yet gives me high medium coverage. I’ve been able to also spot conceal pretty well. I’ve been wearing this over primer with no powder and get about 6 hours wear-even gone kayaking and was shocked with how nice my foundation still looked! I have combo/dry skin and have never really gotten oily while wearing this foundation. I didn’t really test the claims about photo lighting, but most reviews I’ve read say it does looks nice in photos and different lighting.

Overall I was really impressed with this new foundation–packaging and finish, and I was looking for something more affordable to use everyday that still gave good coverage. It’s definitely worth a try if you are looking for a simple, everyday foundation!

Wet n Wild Spring 2017 Queen of My Heart ♥️⚜️♥️

Wet n Wild’s Spring Collection for 2017 had arrived in stores! I always look forward to their limited edition Spring/Summer/Fall collections and to seeing the new products! This year’s spring collection has soft, romantic colors with some golds and browns to create a complete eye look. They’ve also included highlighters, a lip palette (missing from display), cheek + lip tints, and a kabuki brush.

Details 

  • 3  Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes ($2.99): Heiroglyphic Heart, Will You Marina Me, Heart and Heavy
  • 2 Megaglo Highlighting Powders ($4.99): Lilac to Reality, The Sweetest Bling
  • Kabuki makeup brush ($3.99)
  • 3 Megaglo Cheek & Lip Tints ($4.99): Crush Upon a Time, Flirt on the Street, Kiss Me If You Can
  • Perfect Pout Lip Palette ($5.99)

Both highlighters are just so pretty to look at! I was really excited to try these out and they did not fail! They’re opaque, buildable, and have no chunky glitters.

    🌷Lilac To Reality

    Lilac to Reality is a trendy holographic lavender/light bluish shade that’s very unique and pigmented. You have to use a light hand with this one if you want it to be more wearable but it easily builds up very brightly. Pictures just don’t do this one justice!(outer portion, heart portion, mixed, mixed swatched w/brush) 

    🌷The Sweetest Bling 

    The Sweetest Bling is a light, sort of muted pink. This color is also pretty unique and I think will suit many skin tones, it’s definitely softer than Lilac to Reality but buildable. It just looks beautiful applied and I find myself using this everyday lately-may need a backup!(outer portion, heart portion, mixed, mixed swatched w/brush)


    🌷Hieroglyphic Heart 

    This trio contains a yellow gold browbone shade, a matte mauve crease shade, and a brown w/gold shimmer eyelid shade. The colors are soft and pigmented and can create a really pretty romantic eye look.

    🌷Will You Marina Me

    This trio contains a paler yellow gold browbone shade, a mauve-gold brown crease shade, and an aqua blue eyelid shade, also soft and pigmented. This will work great for spring and summer!🌷🌷🌷


    So that is what I picked up from the Queen Of My Heart collection! I would definitely recommend getting the highlighters.The eyeshadow palettes are great also, and I know I always take Wet n Wild palettes when I’m doing my makeup on the go!
