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.

I’ve never been to France but it’s definitely on my bucket list. But planning a vacation to another country can be quite expensive. So why not bring France to your home. Today I’m talking how you can host a wine tasting party at home with French wine, butter, and cheese. No need to spend tons of dollars to do this. I’ve never done a wine tasting before and I was definitely excited to do this when I received these French wines. I had my best friends and my parents over to help me taste the wines.
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.
Warm weather is in full effect and that means time for a new skincare routine. I’m not sure if you do this but I like to eliminate as many products as I can from my summer skincare routine because I’m an oily skin girl. I don’t like my skin feeling like I have so many products on my face. Because I don’t use so many products in the summer I feel like my skin is lacking great nourishment that I get during my winter skincare routine. Well, that’s all changing thanks to Pixi Beauty’s NEW Multi Misting.
There is a new brand making a debut in the beauty world, it’s called Sand & Sky. I’m sure none of you guys have heard of this brand and that’s because this brand is from Australia. When I was first sent their Detoxifying + Brighten clay mask, I wasn’t sure what to expect with it. As always I love trying out new skincare products so I’m happy to share with you, my thoughts on the Sand & Sky Detoxifying + Brighten Clay Mask.
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.
Now that Spring has finally arrived, well according to the calendar. It’s time that I start getting prepared for the summer season. This means getting my skin ready for dresses, shorts, tanks, and tees. But don’t forget we also need to take care of our hands and feet as well. Because I my skin gets so dry in the winter time, I’m always looking for a great quality body scrubs that also works as a moisturizer for my skin. Which is why I’m sharing with you today this new brand that I haven’t tried or heard of. It’s called “Oliën Body”.
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.
Last week I wrote I review on one of the products I received from Pixi Beauty which was on the Double Cleanse. This week I’m doing a review and a makeup look on their collaboration with It’s Judy Time. Judy created an eyeshadow palette and lipstick palette. If you’re unfamiliar with Judy, she’s a mom of three girls. So she created this palette so it was a practical and efficient for other ladies or moms out there that don’t have time to do the whole glam.
Happy Valentine’s Day beauties! Hope you all have a fabulous Valentine’s Day with your special person and if you don’t have a special person in your life, hey still have fun today. Get your wine, chocolates and pamper yourself. If you follow me on Snapchat (sassybrunette88) you would have seen that I received a HUGE PR package from Pixi Beauty. When I received that package from my mailman, I was definitely shocked and thankful for it. One of the products I was really excited to try was the NEW Double Cleanse which is a collaboration with Caroline Hirons.
Ever since I got my braces off and whitening your teeth became the thing to do. I’ve always been told I have a great smile since I had my braces off in high school, so I knew that keeping my teeth white was MUST for me. I’ve tried drugstore whitening products but of course, those made my teeth hurt after a while of using them. Which is not good at all. I’ve been testing out the Pop Smile whitening kit for a few days now and I have to say I’m quite impressed by the kit.
