~* Latest in Lips….Walmart beauty*~

Hey Y’ALL

I hope everyone had a great weekend. This is the last week of school here this week. Well, they go 4 days and Friday we go and pick up their report cards. I am planning a special day for my son Friday. We are going to have a mom and son day.

This weekend when I was in Wal-Mart I noticed their beauty boxes they had out went on sale. They were $9.88, but they had them on clearance for $7. I decided to pick up the Latest in Lips one. They have a highlighter one, a hair one, and I wanna say a skincare one. I may go back and get the others because they had a lot left.

As you can see everything is full size, minus the L’Oreal Infallible Matte Gloss. It says on the box it is a $38 value, so for $7 bucks, I am winning on this one. It contains  different lip products and it has the theme Nude Attitude.

It contains:

  • Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Creme

  • Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme

  • Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink

  • Hard Candy Plumping Lip Gloss

  • L’Oreal Infallible Matte Gloss

  • ELF Lip Exfoliator

If y’all see these at y’alls Wal-Mart, I would recommend grabbing this box, it is well worth the money. I haven’t used some of the products in here before, but I will be putting them to the test very soon.

*~*Mascara Showdown*~*

Hey Y’ALL

I am trying to get back into the routine in posting my blog post early in the mornings for my followers. This week I have been slacking and posting at night.

The other day I had this great idea when putting on a mascara I ended up hating, having a mascara show down post. What mascaras do I love in my collection, what mascaras are okay in my collection, and what mascaras do I hate.

I have high end mascaras and I have drugstore mascaras. Some of these I have done reviews on here on my blog and others I haven’t reviewed on my blog. Now lets the showdown begin!!!

*Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara*

Price: $9.49 @ Ulta

img_7958

*L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara*

Price: $9.99 @ Ulta

img_7962

This mascara gets some love. I LOVE this mascara and it comes in waterproof. If you love wearing false lashes, you need this mascara because you won’t need them with this mascara. The only thing I hate about this mascara, I feel that this mascara does get messy when you take it in and out of the tube. Other than that this is a great mascara.

*Ulta Beauty Amped Lashes*

Price: $10.50 @ Ulta

img_7959

I have mixed feelings about this mascara. I love how it makes my lashes look and it is clump free, but the wand seems cheap. When putting it back in the tube, the wand bends and I feel like it is going to break. It is a wetter mascara. The other day I was so made at it because of the wand and when I put it on my lashes, I was like grrrr I can’t throw it away because I like how it makes my lashes look. After I use this tube I won’t repurchase it again because of the wand and it is a wetter mascara.

*MAC False Lashes Extreme Black*

Price: $24.00 @ Ulta

img_7965

As y’all can tell, I received this mascara in  I sample size. I have tried this out several times and I like how soft it makes my lashes feel, but there was a huge flaw in it that changed my opinion on this mascara. It is no where near waterproof. I have dry eyes and I have to use eye drops through out the day and this mascara RUNS like crazy. It is actually going in the trash. It is not worth the price, in my opinion….BYE, BYE mascara say hello to the trash.

*L’Oreal Voluminous X Fiber Mascara*

Price: $10.99 @ Ulta

img_7960

I have reviewed this mascara on here before. This is another L’Oreal mascara I am in love with. I usually do not like fiber mascaras, but I love this one. I would highly recommend this mascara.

*Tarte Lights, Camera, Action 4-1 Mascara*

Price: $23.00 @ Ulta

img_7961

This is another one I got in sample size. I love the packaging on this mascara. There is something about this mascara that I don’t like. It doesn’t do the job for me at all. This is another one that will be going in the trash. It is not worth the money in my opinion. My drugstore mascaras does a better job than this one. BYE, BYE mascara, Hello trash.

*Covergirl Clump Crusher*

Price: $7.99 @ Ulta

img_7964

I always buy this is waterproof because this is one I use everyday. I only use this mascara on my bottle lashes. I hate having raccoon eyes and using this mascara on my bottom lashes avoids that all together. This mascara never does me wrong. I always keep backups on hand of this mascara.

*Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara*

Price: $23.00 @ Ulta

img_7963

I think this is a mascara everyone has. Who doesn’t love this mascara. I have several samples of this mascara. After using my samples, I probably wouldn’t buy this again because it does the same thing as Lash Paradise does, but I do love this mascara.

I hope y’all have enjoyed this mascara showdown! What are some of y’alls favorite mascara’s?

~*~Out with the Old, In with the New~*~

Hey Y’ALL

Happy Wednesday!!

We are half way through this week and I hope all is well with everyone.

We all have those products that we love for a moment and then we find something new, something better. It happens with anything in life. Some of the products I have reviewed on my here on my blog others I haven’t.

~Out with the Old: Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer~

Price: $7.94 @ Wal-Mart

img_7513.jpg

This use to be my go to concealer. It is a great concealer, it hides your dark circle and conceals those areas we all need concealing at some point. I use to go through this like crazy because you don’t really get much in it. It doesn’t last that long especially when you use it every single day, but sadly I will not be repurchasing this concealer after I finish what I have.

~In with the New: Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer~

Price: $5.99 @ Ulta

img_7514

I just recently made a post about this concealer (~New Favorite Drugstore Concealer~), I am in love with this concealer. It is my new favorite and I use it daily of course. It is also cheaper than the Maybelline Age Rewind. Not only is it cheaper and better than the Maybelline Age Rewind, you also get more product, which is always great.

~Out with the Old: Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer~

Price: $5.94 @ Wal-Mart

img_7511

I just realized here goes another Maybelline product I won’t be buying again. This is another product I use to use daily in my “T Zone” to minimize the appearance of my pores, but I have found a WAYYYY better product that is my new favorite primer for my “T Zone”. I have nothing against the Maybelline Baby Skin, but I won’t purchase it again.

~In with the New: Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Instant-Perfecting Power Primer~

Price: $14.00 @ Ulta

img_7512

Yes, the downfall to this primer is so much more expensive than the Maybelline Baby Skin, but I am telling y’all it is so much better. I use this daily in my “T Zone” to minimize the look of my pores. It leaves my skin so smooth and it does wear under makeup better than the Maybelline Baby Skin.  You do get more with the Soap and Glory, you get 1 fl oz and with Maybelline you only get 0.67 fl oz.

What products have y’all loved once upon a time, but ended up finding something better?

~*~Cream Eyeshadows…Why are they the best?~*~

Hey Y’all

It’s Friday!! We have all once again survived the week. Today I am going to paint my living room…fun fun. I am going to go with a rustic look because honestly that is what our decor is, but it doesn’t match the paint on the wall. It is like a barney purple and I can no longer look at it.

Today, I wanted talk about cream eyeshadows and why they are the best. Honestly, a lot of people do not know, but cream eyeshadows can be used for more than just eyeshadow.

I only own Revlon Colorstay cream eyeshadows, one Maybelline color tattoo eyeshadow, and some ELF cream eyeshadows. I do not have many, but what I have I use weekly.

img_7334

What I love about the Cream Eyeshadow I use!

  • Doesn’t crease
  • Blends well with each other
  • Last All Day
  • Easy and fast application

I cannot speak for other cream eyeshadows, but the ones I use are amazing. Revlon has some great colors for spring and you can make a very easy Easter look. I like that if I am in a hurry I can just throw on some cream eyeshadow and go. It does not take long at all.

Cream eyeshadows don’t only  have to be used for just eyeshadow. I know I use them for a lot more.

What I use Cream Eyeshadow for!

  • Base for other eyeshadows: makes them last longer and it also makes the colors pop
  • Brow Highlight
  • Inner Corner Highlight

If I want my eyeshadows to last longer I will use a cream eyeshadow on top of my eye primer to help my eyeshadows, especially if it is one I want to wear, but I know it does not last that long.

Do y’all use cream eyeshadows? What cream eyeshadows do y’all use?

Thanks for reading 🙂

** Favorite DRUGSTORE Beauty Products**

Hey Y’all

Hope everyone is having a great day!!

I had several emails asking me to do my favorite drugstore products, after I made the post about my favorite high end products. As y’all can tell by my blog post, I use mostly drugstore products. I live in a small town and the nearest makeup store is over a hour away, unless you go to the drugstore to get it or Wal-mart….I mainly order stuff online. Plus, who doesn’t like when you find something high end quality for a drugstore price…right??

  • Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

img_7044

Price: $13.23 @ Wal-Mart

Who doesn’t like this bronzer!! This is amazing. The smell, it is soft, and it blends easy. I haven’t used another bronzer since I bought this one. I don’t think I could cheat on this bronzer like that, lol.

  • Wet n Wild Highlighters

img_7047

Price: $4.68 @ Wal-Mart

We all know Wet n Wild products can be questionable, but we all have to admit that they can come out with some pretty good highlighters. They live you with a GLOW. Plus, their new limited edition loose highlighter is amazing (https://southernbeauty.blog/2018/03/03/limited-edition-goth-o-graphic-wet-n-wild-spring-collection/). Wet n Wild has it going on when it comes to highlighters

  • Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless

img_7045

Price: $5.94 @ Wal-Mart

This foundation is a must. I almost of the fit me dewy and smooth, but I like the matte and poreless better. It last all day on my skin, it does help minimize pores, and other products blend great on top of it. It gives you medium coverage and you can build it up to full coverage. If you are looking for a drugstore price foundation, this would be the one I recommend.

  • Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer

img_7046

Price: $7.94 @ Wal-Mart

When I am not using my Tarte Shape Tape concealer, this is the concealer I am grabbing. Maybelline has really hit this concealer out of the park. It gives you full coverage without you looking cakey. This concealer goes great with the Maybelline Fit Me foundation. The tip is nice, but as you can tell in the picture it does get messy.

I didn’t add my favorite drugstore eyeshadows on this post because they deserve a post just for them. Don’t worry it should be up next week or maybe the end of this week.

What are y’all’s favorite drugstore makeup products?

Maybelline Total Temptation Shadow + Highlight Palette

The Maybelline Total Temptation shadow and highlight palette is part of their new line they have released this year. Right when this was in my Wal-Mart store I had to grab it……but only to be let down. Yep, you read it right it was a HUGE let down.

When I review products I want to give them a fair chance, I have given this palette many chances.

Looking at the swatches above, they look very pigmented, but when you applet then with a brush, you don’t get that much pigment on your eyes at all. The darker colors are also patchy. I really wasn’t expecting this bad of a palette from Maybelline. I LOVE Maybelline, I use many of their products. I wouldn’t recommend this palette at all to my followers. The only hope for this palette is the highlights, which to be honest I probably wouldn’t pull out this palette just for the highlights because I have so many other good highlighted to use.

Have y’all tried this palette? What are y’all opinions on it?

Valentine’s Day Makeup Look (All Drugstore) :)

Yep, it is that time of the year again….Valentine’s Day is just next week (wow this year is flying by). I decided that I wanted to do a valentine’s day look for y’all. I debated exactly how I wanted to do it. I thought valentine’s look under $20, under $50, but then I just decided on a look that was just all drugstore. I wanted to make it where if you seen a product you like/love you could go out and get it. Plus, it was important to me to use products that were affordable (like always).

Maybelline SuperStay Foundation

Hey Y’All!!!  By now we have all heard about the new Maybelline Foundation, if you haven’t you can read about it here and you can see exactly what I think about it. The new Superstay Fill Coverage Foundation is supposed to be a 24-hour wear foundation with a flawless finish.  Is it really 24 hours? Just keep reading to find out….

img_6702

I have a love hate relationship with this foundation. When I seen this foundation, I couldn’t wait for it to hit the store (I hate buying foundation online). The day my Wal-mart put it on their shelves I went and bought it. I have seen other reviews and mostly everyone stated it was oxidizing on their skin, so I grabbed a shade lighter….that was my first mistake. The first could of times I used it, it stuck to all of my dry patches on my skin (I have combo skin). It looked awful!! I was seriously heartbroken because I was so excited for this foundation to be released. After a month of debating I went out and bought a shade darker than I needed where I could mix it with the lighter shade I had to make my perfect shade…. Guess what it worked…..the shade was perfect. This is where the love hate relationship comes in at. It didn’t stick to any of my dry spots this time, I put it on and it looked great. I had no complaints (I used it on a day where I wasn’t leaving my house, just in case it looked awful again).

So is it a 24 hour foundation? In my personal use of it, NO!!! I got about 8 hours out of it before it started breaking apart and when I looked in the mirror all of the foundation was off of my nose. I was loving it till I looked in the mirror. I guess it will be a foundation I will wear when I won’t be having a long day. In all fairness I am going to give it one more test day though because I really wanna love it!!

My question is have any of y’all tried the new Maybelline foundation?? If so what are y’all thoughts on it? Did y’all have the same problem?
