*~ E.L.F Week Day 1~*

Hey Y’All

I have so many ELF products that I have decided to have an ELF week here on my blog! I have a lot of products because ELF a couple times a year has a huge sale and you can buy stuff as cheap as 20 cents on up. I take full advantage of this sale every single time.

img_8636

As you can tell I have a lot. I decided to gather everything up I haven’t used and test it out and do a review for y’all. So, the next 5 days is going to be reviewing ELF products. I have found some gems and I have found some products that weren’t worth buying.

~ ELF Baked Highlighter ~

 

 

This highlighter is great when you want just a little bit of a glow. First, you have to get past the hard top cover on it. You know how some makeup has that weird top coat that is pointless, this highlighter has it. With baked products you can use them wet, but I don’t recommend using this wet because I see it messing up your makeup. If you don’t like a blinding highlight I would recommend this product!

~ ELF Lip Gloss ~

 

 

I was nervous when trying this product out because it looks GOLD in the tube. Once you put it on your lips it does not look gold. This is nice when you put it on top of a nude lipstick. This is a great lip gloss.

~ ELF Shimmer Palette ~

 

 

This palette you are suppose to be able to use them as an eyeshadow, highlight or on your lips. Honestly, I wouldn’t recommend using them as a highlight or an eyeshadow. These work great on your lips, but they do not last long. They are to slippery to wear as a highlight or eyeshadow. This is one ELF product I would pass up.

~ ELF Lip Palette ~

 

 

This palette has 2 different colors and then it has a top coat to put over it to make it shimmery. I had high hopes for this palette because I thought it would be great for traveling. Well, my hopes are no more. These go on patchy and the more you try to build them up the worse they get. Plus, they don’t last long at all.

I really hope y’all enjoy day 1 of ELF week. I have many more products I will be reviewing and writing about this week!

What ELF products do y’all love?

*~* Highlighter Showdown *~*

Hey Y’ALL!!

It’s Saturday!! It has been a very long week here. We have decluttered the whole house and got the yard back looking great. We even got our pool cleaned out and we are working on filling it this weekend. I am ready to relax, but I don’t see that happening soon. I just want a lazy day!!

As you can tell by the title, this weeks showdown is highlighters!! I don’t have a huge highlighter collection because once I find a highlighter I love, I usually just stick with it. I think most of these highlighters I have mentioned on my blog.

*~ Let the Showdown Begin ~*

* Milani Stellar Lights Highlighter Palette *

These are very pretty colors. I love this trio of colors. I mix them together sometimes. The only problem I have with this highlighter is that it does make the texture on your face show more, but I still use these. I still use them because they are so pretty.

* Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighters *

img_8872

These are great highlighters. That great thing is they are cheap. These last all day. I own different ones. My favorite though is the Precious Petals one. It is the perfect color. If you love highlighters, these are a must in your collection!

* Wet n Wild Megaglo Loose Highlighter Powder (Moon Tears) *

I don’t think you can buy this anymore. You may can search the internet and find where you can buy this one at. This is my ALL time favorite highlighter!! You can make it blinding or you can do a light hand and just give you that lil bit of glow you want.

* Sleek Makeup Highlighting Palette *

I got this in a holiday kit from Walgreens. I don’t use this palette much at all. I don’t really dig the colors in this palette. The colors are very pretty and they are very soft, but the colors are not for me. It does have one cream highlight in it. I have never wore the cream highlight alone, but I do use it as a base to the highlights in this palette when I use it, but honestly I haven’t picked up this palette in over 3 months.

What are some of  y’alls favorite highlighters?

*~* June Goal Update *~*

Hey Y’ALL

I can’t believe we are half way through the month of June. It has flown by.

I am going to be straight up honest to beginning with. I am seriously failing this month on my goals. I was suppose to start my 30 day goal challenge, my daily devotions, and reading, but I am failing. Every single day my house is full of children from the age of 2 on up to 12. Every single day I am just wore out. Once my house is quite I just want to lay down and go to sleep. Half the time I am out in no time. I know life gets busy and goals get over looked, but I seriously thought this month I would have it. Last month I achieved all of my goals, but school was still in session. I really feel bad.

Even though I feel bad, I am looking at the bigger picture. Even though I only done a couple of days of my 30 day challenge, I am still walking every day. I still haven’t had no soda (which I am no longer craving). I still want to find time to go to the library and check out a book and read.

How are y’alls June goals coming along? I hope better than mine.

*~* Fab Fit Fun Summer Box *~*

Hey Y’all!!

I hope everyone is doing well. I am finally feeling 100% after a sinus infection. I guess it doesn’t help when you are sick, you are still busy!

I first want to start off saying this is not a sponsored post. I purchase this Fab Fit Fun box myself. I always seen post about them and I was curious, so I bought the summer box.

I was excited to get this box because I got to pick a couple of the products for the box. It did take almost 2 weeks to get to me after they shipped the box.  The box is $49.99 and they ship 4 out a year. You can cancel your membership at any time. Depending what was in the box, this summer box ranged value ranged from $321.99-$367.99, so it is worth the price! With that said let’s jump right on it to see what was in this Fab Fit Fun Summer Box!

~ Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case ~

Retail- $58

img_8779

This is one of the products I got to pick. I had the choice of this case or a beach towel. I thought the case I would use more. We are planning a summer vacation after ball season and I could use this on our family vacation. It even has a separate spot to place your brushes that has a cover. I think it is a really pretty case.

~ Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette ~

Retail- $45

img_8771

I was excited for this product. I was praying I was going to get the highlight and contour palette instead of the eyeshadow and liner palette. I am ready to use this. After I play with this palette for awhile I will post a review on this palette.

~ Orlando Pita Play Atmos-Shield Hair Protectant Treatment Spray ~

Retail- $34

img_8769

I have already started using this product. It does make my hair feel soft when I use it. The other day I straighten my hair and I kept feeling my hair all day because it was just so soft.

~ Maji Sports Loop Resistance Band ~

Retail- $15

img_8776

Honestly….this is the one product I am lest excited about. I would of rather got the wallet in the box. I guess I can use this when I find the time to start working out!

~ Jaboneria Marianella Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar ~

Retail- $48

img_8770

This stuff stinks!! I have been meaning to use this, but I have been forgetting to grab it before I jump in the shower. This is another product I picked. I like body scrubs and figured I would give this one a shot. Hopefully, I will get passed the smell!

~ Foreo Luna ~

Retail- $89

img_8775

This is a product everyone got in their box! I thought it would be bigger. I think it is cool it has an app you can download with it. This is one of the products I am going to play with and do a review for y’all!

~ Coola Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer ~

Retail- $32

img_8773

It is that time of the year, you can never have to much sunscreen around the house. I can’t wait to test this out on Saturdays at the ball field. We are there for hours and I don’t wear makeup that day because I am out on the field and I will sweat everything off. I think it is awesome that this doubles as a moisturizer also.

~ Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish ~

Retail- $14.99

img_8778

I think this ring dish is cute. I never shop at Pier 1. This will look good on my makeup vanity!

I really enjoyed this fab fit fun box! It has products in it that I would of never bought myself.

Do y’all get the fab fit fun box? If so, what products did you have in yours?

~*~ Take me to Brazil ~*~

Hey Y’all

I hope everyone is doing well! It has been a very busy June for me so far and it is wearing me out. I have been tired every single day. Like so tired I don’t really want to watch TV or do my planner when I go to bed at night.

Today, I am reviewing yet another BH Cosmetic product!

~ Take Me to Brazil ~

Price: $18.00

img_8662

I bought this palette back in March when BH cosmetics was having a great sale. This palette always seemed to be sold out, so when I seen in back in stock, I just had to have it. I have been waiting for summer time to actually use it. I was so excited about this palette, but to be honest when I got it in, I was scared to start using it. I don’t really do a lot of colorful looks, but I wanted to.

This palette does have a down fall. As you can tell when swatching the blues, the 3 all look like the same color. I was wanting this palette to be more pigmented then what is it. When I put this on my eyes I had to work to build up the colors. Yes, this palette has a lot of pretty colors in it, but is it worth $18.00? In my opinion it isn’t. I love BH Cosmetics products, but this palette isn’t worth the hype at all. For the price, I want more pigment in the colors.

Have y’all tried this palette? If so what are y’alls thoughts?

~*~ Covergirl….It smells like Peach ~*~

Hey Y’all!

It is just me or is every makeup brand coming out with makeup that smells like peaches and chocolate. I was shocked when I went into Wal-Mart and seen covergirl following along with this makeup trend. I know L’Oreal has released some, but I haven’t heard of covergirl. Well, I decided to go ahead and review their makeup that smells like peaches.

* Covergirl Peach Punch *

img_8689

They have an eyeshadow palette, 2 blushes, a highlighter, and then they have a trio with the highlighter, a blush, and a contour, but I didn’t get the trio. I was excited when I seen this! I just had to have this!

* Peach Punch Eyeshadow Palette *

Price: $9.97 @ Wal-Mart

These are such pretty colors. I don’t own no covergirl shadows, so I was basically going into this review not knowing how other covergirl eyeshadows preform.  With these colors you do have to build up the colors. These blend out perfect. They do have a lot of fall out within the palette, which I feel is the only downside to it. I did a whole eye look with this palette. The other thing is the shimmers, you are going to have to use them wet or use a glitter primer. I prefer a glitter primer. They wore all day. I was actually shocked. I didn’t have high hopes for these eyeshadows. Because these performed so well, I will go back and get the chocolate one.

* Peach Punch Blush *

Price: $6.94

These blushes are so pretty. One is a little bit darker than the other. I am first going to say, use a very light hand one these blushes. They are VERY pigmented and I wasn’t expecting that at all. They are both pretty summer colors! These also blend very well.

* Peach Punch Highlighter *

Price:n$6.94

img_8686

I think this is one on my top highlighters now! I love the look of this highlighter. It isn’t to boom in your face blinding someone, it is just right.

Have y’all seen the new covergirl products in y’alls stores? They also have a chocolate line I want to test out. These smell amazing!

*~* Our 2 year Wedding Anniversary *~*

Hey Y’ALL

Today I wanted to share a walk down memory lane with y’all! Today marks 2 years since I married my best friend! We have had our ups and downs, but it has been worth it.

I have known my husband for over 10 years and to be honest I use to dislike him. When I decided to move back home in 2015, we started seeing each other. Shortly, after I moved back he proposed. The rest is history. I love this man more than I can explain in words. he has taken care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself, he has taken care of my son, and he has seen me at my worst. I love him more and more each day. Happy 2 year anniversary and many, many, many more to come. I love you Micheal!

~*~ The Weirdest Makeup Primer ~*~

Hey Y’all

I don’t know about y’all, but this heat is going to get the best of me before summer even starts. I am just glad it is Sunday where I can get some things done around the house!

Today I wanna talk about the weirdest makeup primer. I have heard several people talk about it and I just had to try it.

*~ Monistat Chafing Gel ~*

Yep….Monistat!!! This is suppose to be a great primer for you to have that flawless look. The only active ingredient in this is Dimethicone, which primers that is suppose to hide your pores has in it. I wanted to give it a shot, I though hey I can look flawless, minus I am running the risk of clogging my pores.

Is it useful as a Primer?

Ha ha ha ha ha….When I first applied this, I was like yes no more pores. Who doesn’t want flawless makeup right? Well, I wished I would of checked my makeup before I went to dinner. I almost have no foundation left on my face. My face looks all patchy were my makeup rubbed off in my T zone where I put it. I am going to pass on using this as a primer again. If you choose to use it as a primer, remember if you use it to often it can clog your pores!

Have any of y’all ever use Monistat as a primer? If so, how did it work for you?

*~* Foundation Showdown *~*

HEY Y’ALL!!

Y’all seem to be liking my showdown post, so this week I have decided to bring you a foundation showdown. I feel like over the past 6 months I have been trying foundations and there has been several hits and misses. There has been some I loved and a couple that I have mixed feelings over.

~* Let the Showdown Begin *~

~ Covergirl Healthy Elixir ~

Price: $9.98 @ Wal-Mart

img_8670

I don’t use many Covergirl products, so if I buy covergirl… 1. I have seen a great review or 2. It caught my eye in the store. I decided to try this product months ago because I seen Casey Holmes talking about how great this product was. I love this foundation. I use it almost daily. It is a hydrating foundation, that is infused with vitamins. It is also a buildable foundation, which I love. With it being summer (well Spring), this is the perfect foundation because it has SPF 20! I highly recommend this foundation!

~ Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless ~

Price: $5.94 @ Wal-Mart

img_8673

This is another drugstore foundation I am in love with. This foundation makes you look flawless. I use to use this one a lot till I got the Covergirl one. I also have the dewy one of the fit me, but I don’t like is as much as the matte and poreless. If you are on a budget I highly recommend this foundation!

~ Maybelline Superstay ~

Price: $11.99 @ Wal-Mart

img_8671

When I first did a review on this foundation, I had a love/hate relationship with it. It was first grabbing at dry spots and then when I wore it again, it wore great. Honestly, I still have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. I wear it, but not often. Last time I wore it, it wore great, it does not last 24 hours, but one time I wore it, I couldn’t even touch my face without it moving around. I use the same primer with it. The only thing I can think of was my face was extra oily that day, I really don’t know. For the price, this foundation isn’t worth it. Buy the Maybelline Fit Me foundation, which is cheaper.

~ NYX Total Control Drop Foundation ~

Price: $13.99 @ Ulta

img_8672

I bought this foundation back in November/December. I have only used this foundation 3 times. I hate this foundation. It takes forever to build up to the coverage and you can’t build it up to full coverage. It also grabs badly at every dry spot on your face. I cannot get a flawless finish with this foundation. What I usually do with this foundation is, if I have a foundation that is a little bit to dark I will put a couple of drops of this one in to lighten it up and it works great for that. I am debating about just going ahead and putting this in my bad bin were I can donate it to a friend.

~ Too Faced Born This Way Foundation ~

Price: $39.00 @ Ulta

img_8674

This isn’t the first time I have talked about this foundation on my blog. I love this foundation. Any time I need my foundation to last all day, this is the foundation I use. I wear this on Saturday’s when I am at the ball field all day and I also wear it on game days when I have a busy day and then a ball game at night. This stays in place! I highly recommend this foundation!

What foundation do y’all recommend? What are some of y’alls favorite foundation?
