e.l.f Cosmetics has been around for a while now and their products have either been a hit or miss. I have always been skeptical when it came to their products because it was so cheap for being a drugstore brand. And when I say their products I mean their makeup products. I’ve never had issues with their makeup brushes. I remember when I first tried their foundation and it wasn’t the best. I really hated it. But it seems like e.l.f Cosmetics has improved their some of their products. I received this blush palette in a PR package as part of the #ElfBeautySquad and I was so excited to see how pigmented these colors were.
Everyone knows that I like to make sure I look bronzy in the summer (actually all year around) so when PUR Cosmetics released their PUR Cosmetics Bronze Your Selfie, I was lucky enough to have a bottle sent to me to test out. This is a limited edition so if you decide that this is something you need after you read my review, I highly suggest you purchase it right away before they’re gone.
In the beauty world, people are raving about the Wet’n Wild Photo Focus Foundation and Concealer but I’m here to let you know whether or not this is a miss or a hit. I’m all about drugstore foundations because they are some REALLY good foundations out there. I purchased this foundation a few weeks ago because one of my blog friends Steffanie from Brighter Darling was trying it out and she too has oily skin like myself, so I jumped on the bandwagon.
How many of you heard of Mellow Cosmetics? If you haven’t well, let me tell you all about this brand. I was recently sent a few products from the brand to try out and all I’m going to say are GOOD things about their products because I was SO impressed by their products and the quality of it as well. Mellow Cosmetics is based off in New Zealand. They are a cruelty-free, vegan and paraben free brand.

I want to share with you some Spring beauty products to use right now. Lately these products I have been using and been loving. These products are great for the warm weather, so you’re not feeling like your products are caked onto your skin. Like I’ve mentioned before, I don’t like to wear much makeup in the spring/summer if the temp is going over 70 degrees. Nobody has time for all that.
I have never tried any of the Marc Jacobs beauty products. Reasons for this it’s because it’s so expensive. But when I received the Coconut Glow in my mailbox from Influenster, I was so excited to try it out. I’m sure you saw this on my Instagram feed a few weeks ago and I’ve been raving about this dewy drops. I have to say I’m completely obsessed with this highlight. Now, normally I don’t use cream or liquid products on my face because I am an oily skin girl. But that didn’t stop me from trying this.
I have been using E.L.F Cosmetics since the day it launched. I was always skeptical because it was so darn cheap and usually cheap means horrible quality products. At first, I wasn’t too impressed with E.L.F Cosmetics but they have come long ways. Throughout the years their products have improved. I have to say that their lipsticks are starting to be my favorite right now.
When it comes to makeup my go-to staple is definitely the eyeliner. You already know that I love creating fierce wing liners and for that, I need great eyeliners. I’m extremely picky when I shop for eyeliners especially liquid because some of the liquid eyeliners do bleed, smudge and don’t last long. So far I’ve found my favorite top 6 liquid liners that I haven’t had any issues with. Of course 3 of them are drugstore and the other 3 are high-end.
I’m sure you’ve seen so many videos on YouTube of how beauty gurus store their makeup. Well, I get asked a lot on how I store my makeup. The reason is because I have so many products at home. I have to say I’m quite proud of my collection because I started with not much when I first started to blog. I remember I kept my makeup in small plastic containers from Walmart and then eventually we had to do a stop at IKEA to get me an Alex Drawer to store my makeup.
Highlighting and contouring can be hard for some people, who aren’t skilled in makeup. But when I started to get into makeup and improving my makeup application skills, I knew that eventually, I would need to do highlighting and contouring. When I saw that Pixi Beauty collaborated with Maryam Maquillage, I knew that I would love this highlighting and contouring palette.
PÜR Cosmetics has done it again. They’re seriously trying to help me step up my lipstick game and I’m not even mad about it. They have launched their NEWEST Chrome Glaze and Velvet Matte lipstick inspired by Fifty Shades. There are 6 Chrome Glaze shades and 6 Velvet Matte shades. We already know that I’m a HUGE matte lipstick kind of girl, so when I saw that there were lip gloss lipsticks and I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it.
I’ve been doing a lot of reviews I feel on the latest Pixi Beauty collaborations. I can’t help but share with you guys my honest opinion on these products. If you missed those reviews you can definitely check them out here and here. Today I’m going to talk to you about Pixi Beauty + Aspynovard collaboration is one of my favorite collaborations, to be honest. Her Glow-y Powders are by far my favorite products right now and I find myself using a lot.
Blushes are by far one of the hardest makeup items for me to shop because I’m extremely picky about the colors since I’m tan. Not all blush colors look good on me so I have to be careful when getting blushes. For the past few years, I’ve tried a few different shades of blushes and today I’m sharing with you, Go To Favorite Blushes. These blush palettes are mainly under $20 which is a must for me. And you’d be surprised that out of these only 1 is a high-end brand.
