Bare Minerals: Marvelous Moxie Lipstick Review

Hello there!

So, I’m not usually a lipstick type of girl, but I saw this shade in Ulta and really liked it! It’s in the shade Rise Up. The description they give is a “luminous bronze”. My lips are darker around the corners, and I really like that this color evens out the color, while still looking natural. It’s more of a casual, classic, everyday shade, rather than the pop of colors (reds, pinks, neons), we’ve been seeing.

Besides the color, my favorite thing is the packaging. Unlike regular lipsticks, where the top can just slip off whenever, this one has a lock. You have to slide the silver button down, and that’s how the top comes off. No more worrying if your lipstick is messing up your purse!

IMG_1402 It’s really shiny, so if you’re looking for a matte lipstick, the Marvelous Moxie line probably isn’t the right one. But, it’s really moisturizing and actually lasts me a long time. The only downside to it, is the price. It’s $18.00, which I guess compared to other brands, this is fairly low, but still. Honestly, I feel like it’s worth it, because if it does it’s job and doesn’t break in half, like other lipsticks, why not? Also, a little of this goes a long way and you don’t have to reapply too much, so it lasts.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of the Moxie Lipsticks and if you liked it or not!

Favorite Winter Accessory

Hello wonderful people!

So the East Coast finally got hit with some snow! I can now relate with the majority of the country! I thought it was only right that I share my number one favorite winter accessory: the navy infinity scarf. It honestly goes with everything and it’s thick! Fashionable and comfortable, can there be any better type of perfection? I wanted to show you guys different ways I wear it, and how good it looks with a lot of different colors.

Guys. It even looks good with the neon green cardigan! How many colors can do that?

I hope you guys enjoyed seeing the different outfits! What’s your favorite winter accessory?

Thanks so much for reading!

Let me know what you guys think and Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

3 Favorite Finds!

Hello everyone!

Hope you’re having an awesome hump-day! I wanted to share three awesome products I recently discovered!

1. Neutrogena Makeup Removers (4 in a pack):

Neutrogena Makeup Remover

Okay, I’ve used the Neutrogena blue make-up removers for a couple of years and I absolutely loved them! What I found out was that Sam’s Club, (sells things in bulk), sells them in a box, 4 packets for $13.88! Each packet has 25 towelettes, so you get 100! At CVS, one pack is about $8. Now that’s a deal people! If you don’t have a Sam’s by you, maybe try Costco’s or any warehouse-bulk type of stores.

2. Complexion Rescue in Tan 07 by BareMinerals

Complexion Rescue: bareMinerals

I was Ulta around the end of January, and saw this being advertised, right in the front. I really like tinted moisturizers and after testing out the color/texture, I had to buy it! I love it because it has probably the best moisturizing touch I’ve ever felt compared to other tinted moisturizers. Right now, I’ve been wearing it for two weeks, about every day, and I’m loving yet. I will do a full review on it, but I want to wear it for a while, so it can be more in depth.

3. Surreal Concealer in Olive #5 by Surrat

Surrat Beauty Concealer

So, I only got this 4 days ago…and it completely saved my face. I had a random breakout, and me being me, I had to pop those suckers (gross, I know). You could clearly see the hideous red spots, and I was out of my usual concealer. I got the Surrat Concealer in my Wantable Box and figured why not try it out now. It’s amazing. After I blend it out, it look like there’s nothing wrong with my face. It doesn’t look cakey and so far, it hasn’t broken me out. Like the one above, I will do a full review, after I’ve used it for a while. I just want to give you guys my full experience, and I definitely can’t get that in less than a week.

I know there’s only 3 products, but I had to share them because I love them so much already! Feel free to comment with any questions and let me know if you like it!

Thanks for reading guys!

Unboxing Wantable: February 2015 Makeup Box

Hey guys!

So I just got my first ever Wantable box and I love it! For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a service that sends you either a makeup, accessories, fitness, or an intimidates box. For the makeup box, they have a quiz where you choose what you love, like, and don’t want at all. You don’t know what you’ll get, a personal stylist picks out your products based on your quiz, (mine was Joey), and you get 4 full-sized products. You can by it once for $40, (no shipping cost in the U.S.) or you can pay $36 a month. With the monthly subscription, you can choose if you want to skip a month or even unsubscribe without a penalty. So without further ado here’s what I got:

WantableFeb2015

Liberty Republic: Spellbound Nail Lacquer in Catalyst. Retails for $14.

Spellbound: Catalyst

Bodyography: Eye Liner Pencil Black Magic. Retails for $13.

IMG_0645

Suratt Beauty: Concealer Olive #5. Retails for $50.

Surrat Beauty Concealer

Lord & Berry: Shiny Lipstick Fuscia. Retails for $19.

Lord & Berry Crayon Lipstick

You guys, I got $96 worth of products when I only payed $36! Even though it may be expensive per month, at least you know you get over what you payed for. I really liked everything, except the Lord & Berry Lipstick. You have the option to return it, but I don’t really see the point because I won’t get a refund, since the Surrat Concealer is $50, and I really want to keep that. The concealer and the Bodyography eye pencil, are what I’m most excited about!

Check out the actual video of me opening it!

Let me know if you guys have tried Wantable and if you liked it, or if you have any questions!

Relax + Pamper Yourself

Hello there lovelies!

I hope you’re having a really nice and relaxing Sunday. Sunday is the day most of us have off from our everyday lives and jobs, so don’t waste it! Pamper yourself ladies and gents. It really helps you get prepared to face the new week. I wanted to share some tips, just in case you weren’t sure exactly how to go about pampering yourself!

1. Wear your favorite Pj’s. Listen guys. There’s honestly nothing more comfortable than your pj’s!

14209430188462. Facial Masque

Put on your favorite masque! Nothing more relaxing than knowing your face is nice and clean. I have on the Freeman Feeling Beautiful: Avocado & Oatmeal Masque.

3. Grab a drink and a book

Whether it’s wine, water, beer, or in my case, tea, get your favorite drink and  your favorite book. Nothing better than sipping and reading. And honestly, how many of you actually have time to read your favorite book during the week?

4. Movie/TV Show

If you’re not into books, there’s always the wonderful world of movies/tv shows. Catch up on your favorite shows, or watch a movie you’ve been wanting to see. Thanks to Netflix, we can all do it in the wonderful comfort of our warms beds. I’m watching El Dorado! Loved that movie as a kid! And as an adult…hehe

5. Nose strip.

That amazing moment when you pull that strip off and see all the disgusting things that were on your nose is just tantalizing. No better way to start the week than with clean pores. I use the Biore pore strips.

6. Sleep.

Grab your 8-hour beauty sleep when you can! Monday you’ll be ready to go.

That’s it folks! I hope this brightens up your Sunday! Let me know if you do any other fun stuff to pamper/relax!
