Makeup Collection: Concealers

IMG_7640.JPG

Hi girls!! I am back with another installment in my makeup collection series. This one is gonna be a bit boring because everyone has a different preference when it comes to complexion products. I am Normal to Oily Combination I get oily in my T zone and I prefer to have a matte finish for my complexion but I sometimes go with a natural finish. So anyways, this is my concealer collection (I know I don’t have too many):

  • Nars Radiant Creamy Concealers in Custard and Macadamia

I bought this because of Youtube because this concealer used to be all over the internet for under eyes and I really do like it. I have used up a whole tube of Custard and repurchased it and even purchased another color so that I can rotate them around depending on how tan or white I am. I would recommend this to anyone because it brightens up your under eye and doesn’t crease as long as you set it!

  • Benefit Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer in 2

After my Benefit training, I went out and purchased this because I got to play with all of their products and this concealer is amazing for covering up blemishes over, under and without foundation! The only thing is that there are only 3 shades in this range and that can be improved.

  • Tarte Shape Tape in Light Sand

My bestfriend bought one for me while she was in Georgia because I wanted to try it so badly. Unfortunately, this color is too light for me. Its ghostly!! I might sell it on Depop or exchange for a different shade. It is super pigmented though!

  • NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer in Custard

My favorite concealer to clean up my brows hands down because it dries down to a powder finish. I can actually see myself using this whole pot because it is so pigmented and blends out nicely!

  • LA Girl Pro Concealer in Natural

I purchased this from my CVS because everyone was using them at the time and I didn’t like it under my eyes but I really enjoy using it as a eye lid primer! It works just as well as my Urban Decay one and its affordable!

  • Sephora Collection Make No Mistake High Coverage Concealer in Almond

I bought this strictly because it was highly recommended by another Sephora Cast Member. She was actually using it with powder and her complexion looked great. I want to do a no makeup makeup day with this concealer and see how it goes!

Okay guys that is everything in my collection right now. What are some of the concealers in your collection? Please leave me some recommendations in the comments below I am always down to try a new one!

Products I regret buying

So lately, I’ve been going through my makeup collection and pulling out things that I haven’t been using lately and trying to rotate and actually use everything. Doing this helps my remember / refresh me on how I feel about it.

I recently learned about the app Depop, where people sell their makeup, clothing and whatever else they have and they pay the app a commission on the sale and you keep the rest. It works just like Mercari and Poshmark, which are both buying & selling apps but Depop has cheaper shipping than Poshmark and I believe they take out a little less on commission. So anyways, I’ve been taking things out and putting them online to sell so that I can a. make more room and b. to make some extra cash! I’ve sold on Posh & Mercari a lot and I made over $600 by selling and trading. I think one of the best things about using these apps is that you can request a check in the mail or direct deposit into your account so you can use that money toward whatever you need to.

Anyways so this post is dedicated to the items that I regret purchasing and probably things I am selling / have sold on Posh, Mer or Depop! Oh, also because I obviously don’t have majority of these products anymore I will just link them.

Also, if you love any of these products please don’t take offense to this. These were the products that didn’t work for me.

 

Morphe 35O

I bought this for resale price, I think for $35 which is a rip off. This is the first big eyeshadow palette I purchased and I stopped using it after about a week. I recently came back to it and the pigmentation didn’t measure up to what I am used to.

Jeffree Star x Manny MUA Eclipse Skin Frost

I had high hopes for this one and I came to this conclusion: this highlight is DRY AS F. And, it crumbled on me when I tried to apply even more on top.

Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuits

Honestly I bought a few colors from Walgreens and ended up tossing some and giving the rest away. These liquid lipsticks were uncomfortable and super drying. The price point is great but I wasted like $30 on these, which I didn’t like.

Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation 

To be honest I got the wrong shade and it is too pale on my skin and now I am into fuller coverage foundations but its good for super light coverage and dewey skin.

Colourpop Ulta Matte Liquid Lipsticks

By far the worst liquid lipstick formula I have tried. They are SOOO drying and they crumble and wear off like nobodies business. I would rather spend a bit more money for better quality.

Sephora Collection 10 Hour Wear Perfection Foundation

I hated this so much, I had to return it. It made my face feel greasy and didn’t last long at all on my skin.

DUO Brush on Adhesive 

I wanted to love this because everyone else does but it sucked so bad my lashes looked so bad and they felt like they were gonna fall off at any second! Yikes I am sticking to my HOL Glue its truly the best one.

 

 

So yeah guys, these were just a few of the things (off the top of my head) that I regret purchasing. What are some of the things you regret purchasing? Let me know down below!

Whats in My Bag: School Edition

IMG_7489.JPG

Okay, I’m not gonna lie, I just thought of this post really quickly because right now I’m kind of busy with school and I couldn’t post what I wanted to because like I said, my focus is school right now. I started my junior year at UHWO and oh my god you guys the campus is beautiful I literally spent my whole first day there even when I only had 2 classes on campus. I spent my time in the cafe doing homework and even in the student lounge for a bit.

I know I did a whats in my bag a few weeks ago with my everyday / work things but I wanted to do one with all school related things. So, if you want to know whats in my school bag then this post is for you, if not I’m sorry next post will be more interesting!

Processed with Rookie Cam

So I am using the same bag for class, the Michael Kors Jet Set Multifunction Tote because it has a padded slot for a lap tops and lots of pockets to put things in.

Macbook: Obviously need this to blog and do my course work

Macbook charger: Need to charge my computer if the battery gets low

My Wallet: For food and drink money duh

Keys: Gotta go home sometime and get to school somehow

Apple Headphones: For some reason, music helps my concentrate on my work better plus I love watching youtube videos too

Phone Charger: I can’t have my phone dying

Calculator: Need it for statistics because I can’t do radicals in my head

Sticky Note Tabs: I got these free from the school, I love them to mark my pages in my textbooks and notebooks

Notebook: Need this for Stats class, theres a lot of notes

Fresh Lip Balm: In case my lips get dry or I don’t wanna wear lipstick

Mac Yash lipstick: To touch up after eating good food

Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Powder: Pat away my oiliness and keeps my foundation looking great

Duo Lash Glue: Don’t want my lashes looking crazy

Elf Powder Brush: Cant apply the powder with my hands

Pencil Case full of

  • Mechanical Pencils
  • Highlighters
  • Black and Colorful Gel Pens
  • Eraser
  • Lead
  • Paper Reinforcers (I call them paper buttholes lol)

 

So yeah that is everything I carry usually, but doesn’t include my binder / textbook because my bag would break from all that crap haha. Sidenote, I am so grateful for E Textbooks it makes my life so much easier. Another sidenote my Business Law class seems super intense so pray for me!

If you’re in school what do you bring? Let me know! Thanks for reading!

Collab: Anti Haul (Abby Uppington)

Hi guys I am back with another anti haul, since my first anti haul last month got a lot of great feedback and you guys said you enjoyed it. I am also sooo happy to be collaborating with the gorgeous Abby. I love her blog because she’s just like me – we LOVE our high end makeup products. She’s beautiful and one of the sweetest girls I have met on WordPress! So please please please, go leave her lots of love and tell her I sent you! And you should follow her!

I know I haven’t been the best with my “no buy”, because that honestly lasted ONE DAY! Ill get there. But anyways I have been seeing a lot of products that are coming out and I wanted to share my thoughts with you guys! Just forewarning, I’m going to be super straight forward in this post, sorry!

 

20769985_1980956652140639_465150210333740789_n.jpg

 

KKW Powder Contour Kit and Highlight Kit

Okay so her contour & highlight sticks were in my last post because of it being heavily overpriced and products were breaking like crazy. I saw her swatch these on snapchat, literally the most chalkiest / powdery things I have ever seen. Im over this contour kit phase, next.

20841049_1983084838594487_7206322373019610862_n.jpg

Pat Macgrath Mothership (Collection?)  Eyeshadow Palettes

Personally I do not own any Pat Macgrath items because I have no idea who she is, her products are so expensive and they don’t really appeal to me. She’s know for putting 4 items into a plastic pouch, filling it with confetti and boom you wasted $80 on that. I saw these palettes and I was astounded at the price tag of $125! For that, pass.

 

20597543_1977407292495575_3971167328144260635_n.jpg

Morphe x BrittanyBear Contour Brush Set

I dont know who this BrittanyBear is, and honestly I could care less. I already said that I was over this contouring phase and these brushes are just boring and those oval looking brushes look generic and very stiff. Also, I can get these brushes from TJ Maxx for really cheap.

 

20621225_1978566399046331_7929417980238539542_n.jpg

DesixKatie X Dose of Colors Collab

The packaging of the highlighters and eyeshadow palette is to die for, but really do I need another highlighter or a palette that I have to use my fingers for it to work? Nope. Im bored with their lip products too, especially the fact that the components are all the same color making it hard to determine which color is which. I love you Desi, and Katie but sorry won’t be buying any of these.

20770445_1980843818818589_2019993161372637624_n.jpg

Benefit Beauty Stowaways aka Collab with Beauty Influencers

I feel like I am the only person not bothered by this. I mean the kit of the minis is a great value at $32, but why do I need to buy them individually for a plastic sleeve with Laura Lee or Manny MUA’s face on it? When I take the sleeve off it looks like a normal Hoola bronzer. Sorry Benefit, love you but no thank you.

 

20664727_1977486779154293_6535042549141708234_n.jpg

Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Collection

I hate everything about this collection. The packaging is childish and cheap looking – which isn’t acceptable because of the price you are paying. Her palette is boring, her mini lipsticks are just repeats of other shades, her makeup bag looks cheap and the price for that bejeweled liquid lipstick is bizarre. The only thing that I was considering getting was the Ultra Glows but they’re always sold out, no surprise there.

 

s1960954-main-Lhero.jpg

Kat Von D Creme Contour Palette

Kat, I love you babe but I do not need a creme contour kit, especially since I just willingly gave away my ABH cream contour kit to my bestfriend. Give us a brand new palette please because this contouring phase is boring!

 

20638640_1978564115713226_4803320251170184904_n.jpg

Wet n Wild Midnight Mermaid Collection 

I am tired of unicorn, halo and mermaid collections. Honestly how many mermaid collections are there already? I also don’t wear metallic lips or colorful liner. Wet n Wild makes some bomb highlighters but I don’t think this highlight will work on my skin.

20638789_1978386679064303_1164807782781950460_n.jpg

Tarte 2017 Holiday Collection

Im just going to say this: Tarte please stop recycling old products, repackaging them into gaudy packaging and slapping a “limited edition, holiday collection” stick on it. When Trendmood leaked the images to your new holiday items I yawned because that packaging does not remind me of the holidays and I swear they look the same every year. Please come out with something new and innovative.

 

20799535_1982666955302942_6522372033748185587_n.jpg

 

Becca “New/ Limited Edition” Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfecters

I dont trust when Becca says their skin perfecters are limited because they are releasing Smokey Quartz, which looks identical to the Rose Quartz one that came out last year just in different packaging. Nice one Becca, I am not falling for your tricks again.

 

20664487_1981054375464200_5218040730293203640_n.jpg

Karrueche x Colourpop She Eyeshadow Palette

This palette is cute, it really is but I am just tired and frustrated with Colourpop right now that I don’t even want to bother with this. I don’t want to wait for a stupid restock, drop what I am doing a camp out on my computer for something that I am most likely not even going to get. Its not worth the stress. Also: side note yesterday when I went on the mobile website, the palette was in stock and allowed me to hit “add to bag” and it took it right out. I checked again the next day and it was “out of stock”.

 

Goals for this School Year

Okay guys, today is going to be a little different from my normal content. My friend and fellow blogger, Brooke Clarke always posts her goals and she really inspired me to make lists of the things that I want to accomplish so that I can come back to them later to see if I fell through with my commitment or not. So here are some of my goals for this school year.

 

  1. Stay up to date with my planner (no exceptions Cass!)
  2. Do my assignments and turn them in early, no more procrastination
  3. Work on all of my online course work in-between my classes
  4. Get involved with my school / student life
  5. Pack my bag the night before so I am not scrambling in the morning
  6. Save money by drinking my instant coffee from home
  7. Stay away from junk food for lunch, opt for healthier alternatives
  8. Study in the library because there are no distractions
  9. Sync my MacBook & iPhone calendar / reminders to make sure I don’t miss anything
  10. Writing down my assignments and not relying on my school account because I remember things better when I write things down
  11. Try getting a job on campus so that I can make more money
  12. Stop spending so frivolously because girl you’re in debt
  13. Actually bring my books to class so I can do my work instead of relying on a classmate
  14. Get good nights rest the night before so that I am 100% at school
  15. Register for next semester earlier so I don’t have to stress
  16. Balance out school, work, blogging and social lives in a healthy way
  17. Keep my email inbox clear for teacher correspondence
  18. Keep my laptop in my purse as well as my charger and headphones
  19. Be sure to remain positive always and have a positive attitude toward everything
  20. Don’t be afraid to ask for help

 

Are you guys back in school for the semester? What are some of your goals?

Anastasia Subculture Palette

IMG_7422.JPG

Okay so first, I finally hit my 100 followers mark!! Thanks to everybody who reads, comments and supports me I am so happy that I have a little blogging community with you guys. I really appreciate it because I was just doing this for fun and not necessarily for the views. Okay second, there is SO much controversy with this palette oh my goodness I watched videos on end about this palette and I still loved the colors and I wanted to play with these and form my own opinion.

So, because I love in Hawaii usually big releases are delayed two weeks or so. The store I work at still has not received the palettes, new matte lipsticks or the liquid glows so I ended up going to a higher volume store and they had them. Since they didn’t receive the  new graphics for the release, they pretty much had to just make a tester and sell it that way. Luckily, I had someone that I knew working at the time so she could show me all the new products and we could play. At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted the palette because yes there is some fallout. But ultimately, I ended up buying it (obviously).

IMG_7416.JPG

This palette is the “sister” to last years Modern Renaissance. It has 14 shades in total and 13 being completely new shades with is amazing. This palette is available online and in stores in Sephora, Macy’s, Ulta and Anastasia Beverly Hills and retails for $42. Okay, lets get down to my honest thoughts about his palette.

IMG_7417.JPG

Okay, so first I think the color scheme of this palette is amazing. I love the dark, grungy cool toned shadows and even pops of yellow, peach and the pink duo chrome. As for the shimmer shades, they swatched quite nicely on the arms with one swipe and I was into it. Something I noticed is that the brush that it comes with was a major culprit to the major fallout that people are seeing. Usually I love the dual ended brushes that come with their palettes but honestly the fluffy side of this brush was a disaster. The one I used in the store was literally shedding everywhere and was very rough on the eyes and in the shadow pans. When I used that end of the brush, powders flew everywhere but when I took it home and used my Morphe M433 & M441 the fallout didn’t seem to bother me too much. I did notice that I needed to build up the shade Roxy, Dawn & New Wave but I didn’t seem to mind because you’re supposed to go in with a light hand so that you don’t kick up extra product. Also, I really really love the color and velvety feel of the palette (my favorite color is teal) and I knew I needed to have it because its the sister of the Modern Renaissance. Oh and something that I heard was that there were some manufacture issues, some people were getting two the shades in the palette so definitely check yours before you purchase.

Here are some swatches:

 

IMG_7368.JPG

Overall this palette isn’t as bad as people make it seem. Yes it has fallout but like I said I don’t mind. I do find myself working a bit more to blend them out but the colors are phenomenal. I recommend going into your local Sephora or Ulta to swatch and play with it and form your own opinion on this palette – don’t necessarily go off of what others are saying about it. Heres the look I created with this palette using Dawn, Roxy, New Wave, Edge, Electric and Untamed: (PLEASE excuse my ratchet hair)

My MAC Lipsticks

Hi gals / guys!!! I know the whole liquid lipstick thing is so in trend right now but honestly, I have been getting right back into lipsticks in bullet form. Don’t get me wrong, I love liquid lipsticks because they stay on all day and are completely matte but I missed the way MAC lipsticks smell and how easy the applications and re applications are.

For any of those who don’t know what MAC lipsticks smell like, vanilla and cosmetics. Its the weirdest thing but the smell is MAC’s signature. These lipsticks retail for $17 US and you get 3 grams of product per tube. It might not sound like a lot, but really how many of you have actually gone through an entire lipstick? I have yet to get through a lipstick I am so close! Now, the thing I love the most about MACs lipsticks (besides the smell) is they have SO many different colors and finishes. They have 9 different lipstick finishes:

  • Matte: the original matte finish
  • Retro Matte: mattest matte finish
  • Lustre: semi-gloss finish
  • Satin: velvet sheen finish
  • Amplified: creamy high coverage finish
  • Frost: metallic pearl finish
  • Glaze: glossy veil finish
  • Cremesheen: high-shine finish
  • Metallic: metallic finish

 

Currently, I have 6 lipsticks and there is ALWAYS room for more!

Whirl: Dirty Rose, Matte Finish

Velvet Teddy: Deep-tone Beige, Matte Finish

Yash: Deep neutral, Matte Finish

Honey Love: Light Beige Toned with Rose, Matte Finish

Peach Stock: Creamy Beige Peach, Satin Finish

Mehr: Dirty Blue Pink, Matte Finish

 

Here are the swatches of them all in order:

 

 

You can obviously see that I love my nudes and I kind of stick to the same tone when it comes to lipsticks. I get the most use out of YashVelvet Teddy and Honey Love. If I had to pick one I would definitely pick Yash. 5 of my lipsticks are matte finish and they definitely are matte and they aren’t overly drying like a matte lipstick would be. They stay on my lips all day and it’s so creamy making reapplying it easy. The only Satin finish I have is Peach Stock, which is a pale peachy nude, I love applying this one over a matte beige nude lip liner to make my lips look juicy! This lip color looks great on its own especially because I’m tan right now so my lips really pop! As for the formula, I was worried that Satin will be slippery and disappear off my lips but it held on all day and looked great without touch ups.

 

I definitely would recommend MAC lipsticks to anyone who hasn’t tried them yet, cough cough, Jemma Love haha. I have a few that are on my list-

Really Me: Muted Neutral Pink Matte Finish

 

Spirit: Muted Pinky-Beige Brown Satin Finish

 

Cherish: Soft Muted Peachy-Beige Satin Finish

Mocha: Peachy-Yellow Brown Satin Finish

 

Blankety: Soft Pink Beige Amplified Finish

I hope you have found this somewhat helpful or interesting. What are some of your favorite lipstick shades, or leave some recommendations down below in the comments! Thank you so much for reading!

Declutter / Empties July 2017

I’ve been on a decluttering video binge for the past few days and even though I don’t have a lot of makeup, I know there were some things in my collection that I don’t or will not use. Anything that I declutter will be given to my family / friends if not expired or thrown away if it is past its expiration date. Alright so lets see what I am decluttering!

IMG_6697.JPG

 

Buxom Liquid Lipstick in White Russian

This one I got in gratis, it’s way too light for my liking so I’ll be passing that on to Cha cha.

Milani 2 in 1 Foundations in 03 Light Beige

This doesn’t match me anymore and I have found better foundations so I don’t need this one anymore.

Colourpop x Alexia Ren Topaz Duo

Im debating on depotting the highlighter because it is so blinding, but I don’t know how to get it out!

Milani Mattifying Prime Shield

I never really cared for this primer, it didn’t keep me matte and I have other primers that I prefer, and this is taking up space.

Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti Acne Treatment

I don’t like this primer either and I’m almost done with it but I don’t see myself finishing it up.

Wet n Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder in Neutral Beige

This color doesn’t match me, so I will pass that off to someone who could use it.

Dior Lipstick in Chocolate

I got this in gratis and I’m not a fan of the color so maybe my mom will like it.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Warm Rose (Back 2 Mac)

This skin finish is white and too chalky so I’m back to Macing is so I can get a lipstick!

Loreal Pro Matte in 103 Neutral Buff

This is way too pale for me and its been sitting for awhile so it’s time to move on!

MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC30 (Back 2 Mac)

This was my old shade in Mac and I’ll be recyling it!

Marc Jacobs Lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

I got this as gratis too and the color isn’t for me, Cha Cha will enjoy it.

Stellar Infinite Lipstick in Super Sonic 2

I was excited to get this in gratis because its really red, but it broke on me and I cant get it to stay in the tube.

IT Cosmetics CC Cream in Medium Sample

I’ve had this for a long time and I need to get rid of it.

Tarte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit

This was in the Sephora birthday gift and personally I don’t like the shade and I don’t like the formula.

Wet N Wild Liquid Catsuit in Video Vixen

This lipstick is great but it bleeds really bad and I only used it once.

MAC Lip Prep n Prime (Back to Mac)

This one smells weird so it’s definitely time to get rid of it!

 

Because I didn’t have a lot of empties yet, I wanted to just throw that in this post!

Empties

IMG_6698.JPG

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes

I love these wipes, I love to use them to take off my makeup and to remove swatches from my arm and I love how soft my skin is, and I already repurchased!

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum

Got this baby size as a Sephora point perk and I love this serum, I still have some in my full sized bottle.

Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation in Cream Beige

It might not look like its empty from the outside but I scraped the life out of this bottle, I have a backup ready to go so I am not without it.

Benefit Rollerlash

I’ve had this for too long and it’s so dry, and I don’t think I’m going to repurchase because I love my Loreal Lash Paradise Mascara.

Sephora Lashcraft Mascara

I actually liked this mascara it really gave my lashes length and volume and didn’t clump, I already got a backup in my gratis.

Loreal Brow Stylus Definer in Brunette

This is one of the best brow pencils at the drugstore, I will repurchase this as soon as I run out of my Anastasia Brow Wiz.

 

Alright guys, thanks for reading my empties / declutter. What are some items you have used up recently and what products are you decluttering?

Makeup Collection: Bronzers and Blushes

So I am thinking about starting a new series on my blog called “Makeup Collection” and breaking it down into different sections and products so that I can organize, compare and maybe declutter some products. I love watching these types of videos on Youtube, I have no idea why. I also love watching Makeup Declutters because I love seeing what people have and want to get rid of or keep and why. Anyways, since a bronzer was my most recent purchase I felt that it would be appropriate to start this series with bronzers. But, because I don’t have a lot of bronzers, I will be doing it with my blushes! If you are interested, keep on reading.

 

Bronzers:

IMG_6584.JPG

So I currently only have 3 bronzers, I would have 4 but guess what? My Physicians Formula Muru Muru Butter Bronzer cracked and decided to shatter all over my floor! Im so upset about it, and I wont be repurchasing it anytime soon because it did break and I didn’t even drop it! So in my collection I have:

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

This one is a cult favorite because it is has a matte finish, which I love to have because sometimes I’m not down to have a sheer / shimmery bronzer. I love this one because it is light and a bit ashy so that I can use it for a nice, natural bronze and I can even contour with it. I think that out of all over my bronzers, I get the most compliments / questions when I wear this one.

NARS Laguna Bronzer

This is yet another cult favorite, I believe that Laguna is the best selling bronzer that NARS has. I got this because at one point I was on a NARS kick, but I ended up loving this one because its very sheer and has a nice shimmer to it, giving me the summer glow all year round. I haven’t used this in a while, and I want to pick it up again especially since its the summer.

MAC Matte Bronze Bronzing Powder

I just picked this one up from Macys because I have been watching videos about some MAC bronzers and out of all the ones I swatched, this one was matte and not overly orange like the others. For some reason I am back on a MAC kick, I have been picking up some products from them lately, I know I shouldn’t but I am.

 

Bronzer Swatches:

IMG_6587.JPGTop to Bottom: Hoola, Laguna & Matte Bronze

I know, bronzer swatches are useless because obviously the way the apply to your face is going to be different but I swatched them so I can see and compare their tones. Hoola is more a true soft brown, Nars is a golden sheen brown and MAC is more of a reddish brown.

Blushes:

IMG_6585.JPG

This year I have been all about blushes, previously I never really wear blushes but now I can see the difference it can make and how it give my face dimension!

 

NARS Blush in Madly

I like the color and tone of this blush but I barely use it because all of the NARS blushes have some shimmer in it, but like I said maybe I could use it in the summer because it is a nice neutral nude pink.

MAC Blush in Melba

I got this recently because I have been on the hunt for this one, I guess it is a popular shade because I could never find it at the MAC stores and counters around me. I’m glad I got it because it is a gorgeous pinky peach shade and looks so natural on the skin.

Stellar Eclipse Cosmic Blush in Flare

I got this blush in my gratis, not sure if I will be keeping this one because I am not a huge fan of shimmery blushes, it is a pretty color though.

Kat Von D Lolita Blush/Eyeshadow

This one is a limited edition item that was released about 2 months ago? Anyway Kat made a shade of blush / eyeshadow in the shade Lolita, which is her number one seller in her lipstick line. I love this as an eyeshadow but it is a great blush and not as dark as I thought it would be, because it is buildable.

Tarte Blush in Paarty

This is the blush in the Sephora birthday gift for this year, and this shade is exclusive to Sephora. It is a pretty baby pink but it translates well on the skin, very buildable.

NARS Blush in Goulue

This mini sized blush was the VIB Rouge gift from 2016, I’m going to be honest, I dont reach for this shade because it is a bit dark for me but we will see, because I am pretty dark right now because I have been going to the beach more often.

 

Blush Swatches:

IMG_6589.JPGTop to Bottom: Goulue, Madly, Paarty, Flare, Lolita & Melba.

 

Well those are all of the items in my bronzers and blushes stash, what are some of your bronzers / blushes in your collections? Also, is this a series that I should continue? Please let me know your thoughts on that. But thank you for reading!
