*~* Sephora Play: June *~*

Hey Y’ALL!!

I finally got my Sephora Play box in for the month of June! Maybe it is just me, but it seemed like it took forever this month to get to me.

If y’all don’t get Sephora Play, it is a beauty box that is $10 a month. Each month has a theme and this month the theme is Summer Nights. I am usually happy with my Sephora Play box, I wanna say this is my 4th box. This month I am real disappointed in my box. Let’s get  started going through the products and see why I am disappointed in my box!

*~ Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation ~*

 

This product didn’t work for me. I don’t remember if I got it in another Sephora Play box or if I got it in one of me Allure boxes when I was getting Allure. I didn’t like this foundation at all. Actually the sample I have from last time is in my bad makeup bin. This also looks to dark for me. I will try it out again soon because I am going to do a blog post next month using the makeup in my bad makeup bin.

*~ Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick ~*

 

I actually already own this product. When Too Faced was having a huge sale I got some of these, plus I got a sample size like this when I ordered one of their eyeshadow palettes. Plus, to me this is more of a fall color.

*~ Verb Sea Spray ~*

 

I don’t use products like this at all. I will test it out and see if I like it, but I never use texture spray’s in my hair.

*~ Clinique: Take Off the Day Makeup Remover ~*

 

I think out of all the products this month, this is the one I am wanting to try. I have never used any of their makeup remover. This one is for the eyes and I am always trying to find a good makeup remover for my waterproof mascara and when I use glitter glue.

*~ Murad: Nutrient- Charged Water Gel *~

 

I haven’t tried anything from this brand, but I am up to trying this product. I am always looking for skincare products. it says that it hydrates and locks in moisture and it plumps skin. To me that sounds amazing especially when my skin goes through those dry stages.

Each month you get a bonus item in your Sephora Play Box and it is usually perfume, which I enjoy getting, but this month it was different.

*~* 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?

*~*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?

Please don’t forget to like my post and follow my blog. I have a goal of reaching 100 followers by the end of the month.

My FAVORITE high end makeup products!! :)

Hey Y’all!!

I hope y’all are doing well. Most of my post are about drugstore affordable makeup because not everyone can afford high end makeup products, but today I wanted to share with y’all some of my favorite high end makeup products.

  • Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

img_6993

OMG!! I feel that everyone loves this product. Everyone on Youtube you see using it. When I first seen it, I was like yea whatever, it is just a concealer. Boy….was I wrong, I love the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. I use it almost every day. On the days I do not want a full coverage look, I will add a little bit of moisturizer in it to thin it out and it still works great, just doesn’t give me that full coverage I am not looking for.

  • Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

img_6992

When I bought this foundation, I was just looking for a different foundation. I like to switch things up a little bit. I can have a medium coverage with it or I can build it up to full coverage. It is an oil free foundation, which I love. It gives me this radiant look all day long. I would highly recommend this foundation to anyone.

  • The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow palette

img_6995

This is a palette I really truly wanted. It was always sold out and when I finally got my hands on it I was so in love. For those who know me, I can handle having one foundation, one highlighter, etc…but I LOVE eyeshadow. My eyeshadow collection, I will say is unreal. This is by far my favorite palette in my collection. You can do several different looks with just this one palette and the colors are AMAZING.

 

What are y’alls favorite high end products?
