ColourPop Lip Swatch

Hey guys!

Recently, I purchased some new Colourpop lippies and thought it would be fun to show you guys. A couple of them I already showed you guys, but I thought I would feature them again for people who haven’t seen.

I love the formula of these! I have them in the matte finishes, but unlike other mattes, they aren’t drying at all. Honestly, they have a slight shine to them, but I don’t mind. So they aren’t completely matte, but they definitely last a long time.

I love both of these colors! Beeper is a really taupe color with purple undertones. If you want Kae, I highly recommend getting the lip liner with it, because it is really hard to apply without one. I love the color, but because it’s so dark, one mistake can make a big mess. But the color is amazing! Also the packaging is cute, because all of the products from Karrueche’s collection have gold detailing on them.

I only bought one of these because they were new and I wasn’t sure if I would like the formula. But it is amazing! A little bit of shine, smooth on the lips, and the color is perfect!

I hope you guys enjoyed! Feel free to ask me any questions!

DIY: Spray Paint Decor Gold

Hello everyone!

Today, I wanted to share a quick post about some decor pieces that I spray painted gold. I recently moved and want an all white room with gold touches, but things that are gold are so expensive. Obviously I don’t mean real gold, but cute decor items at Target, Walmart, Michaels, etc, are all so expensive. So I found some inexpensive items, and decided to just spray paint them a metallic gold.

If you want to see the video tutorial of the process, click here.

I bought the wooden box from Michaels for $7.99, the flowers on clearance at Michaels for $2.00, and the spray paint at Walmart for about $5. The brand of spray paint I used was Rust-Oleum and it was in the color Metallic Gold.

I know it’s a simple DIY, but I hope it inspires you guys to decorate however you want, without buying something really expensive. Why not just by it cheap, and spray paint it the exact color you wanted?

Hope you all enjoyed!

Maybelline: Better Skin Powder VoxBox #BetterSkinPowder

Hello everyone!

I’m so excited because I received the Maybelline Voxbox with the new Superstay Better Skin Powderย complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.

If you prefer to see the video of me using this powder, click here.

The shade I’m in is Rich Tan 80. The compact has the powder, a small sponge applicator, and a mirror. It is very thin and small, which is convenient for purses and traveling.

So far, I’m loving this powder! Its description states that it is a “skin-transforming powder” and I totally agree. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not full-coverage, but it does really make a difference.

It contains salicylic acid, which helps with acne, and it is also non-comedogenic. The product claims to “eliminate shine and unevenness”. I’m not sure if it was using this or my other products, but I did have some acne around my t-zone, which went down after I started using this.

It does cover up very well, as you can see in the picture below. I only had on moisturizer, no color correctors, primers, or anything else on my face.

MaybellineFoundationPowder

I highly recommend this for people with oily skin! I have very oily skin and large pores, and with this on, my skin didn’t get as oily as it does with other foundations. It has a matte finish. The powder itself is very smooth and the sponge does a great job at applying it. It gives a very good natural look, not dewy at all. After adding finishing powder, it lasts basically all day. The only shine I notice is my t-zone, but not as much as with my other foundations.

It says suitable for all skin types, but if you have really dry skin, I would test out a sample first. The salicylic acid might dry you out more. But normal and oily skin should be fine for this product.

Overall, this product was definitely a hit with me! I’ve been using it everyday since I received it. Hope you guys enjoyed this review and feel free to leave any questions or comments!
