I bit the bullet and purchased the Kardashian Beauty Touch Tones Gradient Eyeshadow at Ulta. I’ve always been so hesitant about it because I haven’t seen anyone really buy it but I figured I would try it out. I decided to get the color “Echo” because that was pretty much the only one left at Ulta. It was only $9.99+ Tax. I’d say it was a bargain considering the amount of shades you’re getting. The shades are beautiful and not so dramatic. That’s what I like. As you can see below the shades aren’t so harsh and the colors seem. Have you guys tried out the Kardashian Beauty collection?

Last week I decided to do a little shopping and purchase two of the Sally Hansen – Miracle Gel at Target. I wanted to test them out to see if they were really good products since I didn’t want to have to spend money on a UV Light Kit for the gel nail polish. I must say I was really impressed by how quick the nail polish dried and I only needed to apply two coats and then apply a coat of the “top coat”. I had no issues with chipping, peeling or anything. My nails felt strong and not brittle like most regular nail polish feels. It lasted a week on my nails because I like to change my nail color every week. Sally Hansen has a pretty good collection (45 different shades to be exact) on the Miracle Gel Polish which you could find at your local drugstore. I purchased two colors + the top coat. Pink Cadillaquer All Chalked Up Each nail polish color is $7.99 at Target. I’d say that’s a deal considering the Gel Nail Polish that require UV Light are little more than that.

Victoria Secret Uptown Glam // L’Oreal Voluminous Manga // Maybelline Gel Liner // E.L.F Angled Brush // Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade // Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeliner/Brow Brush // Crown Brush Shadow + Crease Brush // Pink Pro Eyeshadow Blender Brush I really like how this turned out. I haven’t used this palette since I got it as a Christmas present 2 years ago from one of my best friends. It’s soft and not too dramatic. One item that is not included in this picture is the Maybelline lighter purple color I used for my inner eyes for brightness. What do you guys think? CHECK OUT THIS MONTH’S SPONSOR:
Let’s talk about our night time routine and I’m not talking about things you do before but what you do for your face before bed. I’m going to be sharing with you THREE of my favorite products I like to use on my face. Which I have used since I’ve been wearing makeup. Neutrogena//Makeup Remover Wipes: Best thing ever. I dislike using the liquid form of makeup remover. I feel like it always left my skin so oily, not the wipes. Plus Neutrogena has the night time calming so my face feels clean & relaxed.
On Saturday I shared this photo on IG and I just wanted to share with you the brands I was using. I love Maybelline makeup a lot. I think the price is affordable and it works well with my oily skin. I try to save money on makeup because I am on a budget but I’m not afraid to splurge every now and then. Eyeshadow: Maybeline Silk Eyeshadow (Taupe Temptress) Blush: Maybelline Hi-Light Blush (Mauve) Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Pomade Dipbrow (Medium Brown) Eyeliner: Maybelline Gel Eyeliner (Darkest Black) Mascara: L’OrealVoluminous Miss Manga Mascara Lipstick: Wet’n Wild Fergie (Fergie Daily) Are you a Maybelline fan? I’ll be guest posting a makeup routine over at Alanna & Company on Monday May4th. Be sure to check it out. CHECK OUT THIS MONTH’S SPONSOR:
I received 5 sample packets from this brand from Influenster. 1. Avocado & Oatmeal Mask 2. Charcoal & Black Sugar Mask 3. Honeydew & Chamomile Sleeping Mask 4. Cucumber Peel Off Mask 5. Coffee & Chai Energizing Paper Eye Mask Out of all of the 5 samples I received, I really enjoyed the “Charcoal & Black Sugar Mask“. It left my skin feeling so smooth, energized, and clean. I have bad pores (so I think) and it felt like my pores were so squeaky clean. My boyfriend has also tried this and he also enjoys doing the mask. Lol shhh don’t tell him I told you this. I decided to go on Ulta and see which other mask they have. I decided to get the “Deadsea Minerals Anit-Stress Mask” and let me tell you… this one works amazing. I do it right before bed and leave it for 10 mins twice a week and my skin feels so relaxed and calm. I’d say these were a bargain because for each 6oz bottle it was $4.29. That’s a deal. I definitely recommend these. What are your favorite face mask? This review is based on my opinion. I was not compensated for this…
Have you heard about Ipsy? I’ve heard a lot of good things about Ipsy. I decided to join in on the fun and check out what the buzz was about. I finally got off the waitlist. Got my very first “glam bag”. What came in this cute little bag?? Let me tell you… 1. NYX Butter Lipstick 2. Crown Brush (Eyeshadow/Crease Duet) 3. Pixi by Petra eyeshadow 4. Skyn Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gel 5. Coolway Hair Serum I have tried so far the eye gels and hair serum. I love it. My hair felt so soft, silky and looks shinier. The skyn firming eye gels were amazing. Saw results within 10 mins. I know that each person gets different items in their bags. I will admit I was jealous of some of the other girls bags but I do love my items. I can’t wait for next months items. Did you receive an Ipsy bag??
