Kaepop Colourpop Lip Swatch

Hello everyone!

Sorry for not posting lately! That’s going to change, I swear. But today, I have a COLOURPOP LIPSWATCH for you guys. I love Colourpop and I really like Karrueche Tran. Colourpop had a 20% off sale, so I purchased the Colourpop x Karrueche Kpop collection.

Without further ado, here they are:

Saigon: Ultra Matte Lip

I usually stay away from reds because I think they look weird on my skin tone, but I absolutely love this! Such a beautiful red and it lasts basically all day. It’s a true red and ultra matte.

Chi: Ultra Matte Lip

At first, I thought that this color was too light for me, but turns out it’s a really good nude for tan/medium skin. On fairer skin, it looks like a mauve/brown. I recommend searching on Youtube and Instagram for people who are similar skin tones to you for this color.

Rooch: Ultra Matte Lip

This lip is the ultra vampy purple lip! I love it. It’s a very deep wine color and I think anyone can rock this!

NYX Wanderlust Dubai Palette

Hello everyone!

So around early December, I saw the NYX Wanderlust Lip and Eye Collections in Ulta, for about $10. The palettes are centered about the NYX Soft Matte Creams. I saw all of the ones named after cities, like Dubai, London, Stockholm, etc. I fell in love with the Dubai palette and had to buy it.

The eyeshadows are all great and pigmented. The purple at the top, the two below, the brown shade on the third row, and the orangy/burgundy shade at the bottom are all shimmery. The others are more of a matte finish. I like the variety of colors and that they kept the basic colors matte.

I absolutely love the Soft Matte Cream in Dubai. It’s the perfect brown shade for me. I used it in the video below.

Here’s a gold look I created on my youtube channel with this palette:

L’Oreal Foundation

Hello there!

Today, I wanted to share my thoughts on the L’Oreal True Match Foundation. Just so you guys know, I have oily/combination skin. My cheeks, areas around my nose, and t-zone get really oily. But, my under eyes and chin are very dry. It’s seriously the worst combination ever.

I’m in the color Buff Beige N4 (neutral). I really like this color because I have a lot of redness and it neutralizes it. I usually used a green corrector, but not in any of these pictures, so you guys can see the actual coverage it gives.

I don’t know why I look so mad…lol

Also, it blends extremely well! I used the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer under my eyes, and I am able to seamlessly blend the two without much effort. A lot of my regular foundations are matte, so I have to work extra hard to blend them because they dry so fast. But not with this one.

I do have super large pores and even though I use a primer, the foundation still settles into them after only a couple hours. That’s the main downside I have.

A smaller issue I have with it, is that it has that “makeup smell”. I’m sure you guys know what I’m talking about. It’s that smell that when people add a lot of powder to their face or something, and it’s super strong but doesn’t have any recognizable scent, besides makeup. I only smell it when I first apply it, and then it tends to fade away.

I bought mine from Ulta for about $10, which may be pricey for a drugstore foundation, but the price doesn’t bother me because I like it. Though I don’t like that the bottle is glass, because I’m a super clutz, I do like that you just need to pour it out. Some people may not, but I like pouring small amounts onto my blending sponge and adding as I go. And as long as you’re careful, your bottle shouldn’t look messy at all, like if you had a pump.

I really like this foundation for when I want a natural look. But, if you have oily skin, just be sure you set it very well. It made me oilier on my cheeks, but didn’t do much with my other oily areas, like my t-zone or forehead.

Overall, I would give this foundation a 7/10. Positives: Great texture, easy to blend, packaging is simple, medium coverage, and there are a lot of shades available. Downsides: Not the best for oily skin, settles into pores and lines, and doesn’t last all day.

Fall Trend: Thigh-High Suede Boots and Ankle Boots

Hello all!

Today, I wanted to talk about the season’s best trend ever: Thigh-high suede boots. I absolutely love this look! I recently just purchased a pair from Forever 21’s website, when they were doing a 20% off. I also purchased their gold zippered ankle boots! Check out my video to get the details!

Thank you for watching!

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.

Lippie Stix

Lippie Stix

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.

Ultra Matte Lipstick

Ultra Matte

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.

Ultra Satin Lipstick

Dopey

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!

Maybelline: Better Skin Powder VoxBox #BetterSkinPowder

Hello everyone!

I’m so excited because I received the Maybelline Voxbox with the new Superstay Better Skin Powder 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.

IMG_0700

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!

OOTD: Summer Denim Dress

Hello!

Today I wanted to share my denim shirt dress. These dresses are popping up from many different stores/brands and I’m loving it! I bought mine from Forever 21, for about $30. But I’ve seen cheaper ones at Charlotte Russe and in online stores. They come in many different styles, but I opted for the long sleeved, tunic style dress.

It has a little denim “belt” that I prefer to tie in the front. Click here to see a short clip of the entire dress. My shoes were actually on sale at Sears for about $10!

I hope you guys enjoyed this OOTD!

OOTD: Tan Summer Dress

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my favorite dress with you guys! It’s is a faux suede, light brown dress. I bought it from TJ Maxx and it’s from the brand Sage. I love that it’s sleeveless and has a mock turtleneck.

I love the designs on this dress, they give a bohemian/tribal type of feel.

I pair this dress either with black booties or black sandals. Hope you guys enjoyed!
