March Favorites !

Hi Beauts !

I honestly can't believe March is over, where did it go ?! For a month that has 31 days, it feels more like 5. Normally from month to month my favorites don't really change. I'll fall in love with something here and there but not really enough to do a blog post about it. This month, I don't have a ton of favorites but I definitely want to share them with you !

Dove Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisture Shampoo

I have been dying to find a shampoo that cleans my hair right but doesn't dry it out and I think I finally found it ! This Dove shampoo is amazing and a definite must have. It cleans my hair but doesn't strip it of it's natural oils and moisture and I like how it makes my hair feels.

Burberry Perfume

I have had this perfume for more than a year but never really reached for it. One day I just grabbed it and fell in love with the smell. It's a very mild smell, you can smell that it's there but it's not a heavy smell. Once it settles on my skin and with my body chemistry it smells fruity and vanilla-y. It's not an overly sweet smell, it is sightly sweet but then you get this hint of warmness and it just smells amazing.

Just Fab Regional

Oh this bag ! I bought this bag from Just Fab and I didn't think I was going to love this bag as much as I do. It's the perfect shoulder bag, it's not too big and not too small, it can really hold a lot. What I really like the most is you can definitely wear this purse casually but also wear it with a more dressier, sophisticated look. Oh and it's pocket galore ! This bag literally has like 8 pockets, which is great when you want to fill it up.

Urban Decay Naked Lip Gloss in Lovechild

Can I be forward and say I love this ! This is my new absolute favorite, it's just like the most perfect lip product ever. The color is called Lovechild and it's this perfect better than your natural lips kind of color. The formula isn't goopy or sticky like other lip glosses, it's very moisturizing and flattering and feel like a second skin. If you want to see a swatch, I mentioned this in my Spring Lip Must Haves, so check it out !

Real Techniques Accent Brush and Eye shadow ( I bought this at a drugstore a while ago and don't remember the name and it doesn't have a label !)

I really like the way my eyes look with eyeliner. Some days I don't want such a defined look but more natural. I use this dark brown eye shadow with my Real Techniques Accent Brush and just dab it long my lash line. I gives my eyes a really nice shape and makes my lashes look a lot thicker.

I hope you Beauts liked my March Favorites ! Hopefully I can continue to do more of these, might have to force myself to try new things, ha ! What was your favorites during March ? Take care !

My Spring Lip Must Haves !

Hi Beauts !

Spring is finally here ! I know for some of you Beauts, what you see outside of your window says otherwise, however I'm so excited for the season and to be able to use all of these on my lips. Nothing says Spring better than a beautiful bright lip. Some of these are some newer purchases and some are constant repeats. I love every single one of these products and that's probably why I keep using them again and again and find them perfect for this time of year.

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick - Spellbound
MAC Satin Lipstick - Snob
NYX Butter Lipstick - Taffy
Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color - Breathtaking Apricot
NYX Butter Lipstick - Hubba Bubba
Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter - Sweet Tart
Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss - Lovechild
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color - Don't Blink Pink
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm - Sweetheart

 Left to Right : Sweetheart, Don't Blink Pink, Spellbound, Snob, Taffy, Sweet Tart, Hubba Bubba, Breathtaking Apricot, Lovelace.
Lately, my most recent go to lip is either Lovechild or Breathtaking Apricot, Lovechild is more of a natural nudey pink and Breathtaking Apricot is a gorgeous coral. They are both amazingly moisturizing and easy to apply. I find all of these different shades of pink would look great on just about anyone. Now, I know pink isn't the only lip color that you can wear during spring, you can wear any color, really it doesn't matter. There is just something about pink this time of year that just screams "Spring" to me. It makes me excited for the change in seasons and for all the beautiful bright colors.

I hope you Beauts found this helpful and feel inspired to wear a pretty bold and bright lip this season ! What are your Spring lip must haves ? I would love to know !

Take Care Beauts !

My Spa Day Must Haves | How To Have A Spa Day at Home !

Hi Beauts !

We all have those bad weeks that by the time Friday comes around, we just need some relaxation and "me" time. When I have really stressful week, I like to take full advantage of my day off. Now sometimes I make plans to go out that day but if I don't make any plans, it's a set pamper day. These days are an absolute must for me, they really help to relax and just unwind and just forget about the past week. Spa days really help you to get in that state of mind where you can think a lot clearer and be happy. Now depending what you like you don't have to go to some expensive spa to help you relax, if you have all the right products, you can do it at home !

What you'll need:
A candle of your choice
Facial masks
Body cream
Hair mask
Sugar Scrub
Nail polish
Blackhead strips
A movie or book/magazine


Facial masks are hands down a necessities for me when I have my pamper day. I have rather oily skin and when you add stress on top of that, let's just say it's not very pretty. I like using either one of these on my skin, it just depends what my skin is needing that week. If I want a deep clean and all the gunk out of my face, I'll use the Freeman Dead Sea Mineral mask, it leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshingly clean. If I want a more mild facial mask, something that will get rid of dead skin cells to prevent any more acne, I'll use Freeman Peel - Off mask. This one is really cool because when you apply it, it has this gel like consistency and as it dries it becomes a very thin, transparent layer on your skin. It is super fun to peel it off of your face and you can see all gunk that it has taken off of your face.

Oily skin means the very dreadful blackheads, and I dislike them very much. I like these because they pull everything out of nose and they don't really damage my skin. The only I will say, is use blackhead strips once a week. The last time I used them, the day right after, I noticed that it dried out my nose a bit, but it wasn't to bad. These strips take out all the oil and dirt that is on my nose to further prevent more blackheads from coming up. I only use these once a week or once every two weeks, it just depends how my nose is looking.

Pamper days don't just mean facial mask, they mean hair mask too. I love washing my hair, it is really relaxing and it really calms me down. I normally wash my hair about 2 to 3 times a week, honestly it just depends what is going on that week. By the end of the week my hair is just dull and dry and my ends are seriously lacking. I like using coconut oil because it really replenishes my hair, it puts back all the missing moisture back in, it makes my hair super silky and smooth and it's natural. I usually apply this first and let it sit on my hair as I do everything else. I normally like to leave it in for an hour to an hour and a half.

It's just not a full on pamper day, if there is no sugar scrub involved. I really like exfoliating my skin with this sugar scrub, it leaves my skin really soft and smooth and moisturized. If you don't have a sugar scrub you can always make one at home or just take some sugar with you into the shower and mix it with a little bit of body wash. If you want to try a homemade one, I have a blog post showing you how I made this exact scrub, Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub. Exfoliating is good for your skin because you are scrubbing off all the dead skin cells that are just laying on your skin, it improves the texture of your skin and helps your skin to look it's best as possible.

Moisturizer ! For my spa day I like to use a rich cream rather than lotion. Body creams, are thicker and because of that they create this barrier on top of your skin that help to keep moisture in. Lotions, on the other hand are a lot more "watery" so your skin absorbs it a lot quicker and it doesn't really create that barrier. I really like this one because it smells really good and it makes my skin super soft. I like to use this after my very spa like bath and just rub it into my skin.

Another thing that I love to do during spa day is paint my nails. It helps to not think about anything else other than what color I want to paint my nails and it helps me feel pretty. Let's face it Beauts, we can't help but feel like a million dollars when we have a killer manicure. So get your favorite nail polish or whatever color you have been dying to use and paint them nails !

I love drinking tea and I especially love it when I'm relaxing. After I have done all my masks and painting my nails and applying cream, I like to sit down with a cup of tea and a good book. I always drink tea when I'm getting ready for bed because I'm such a hyper person and I'm constantly moving, that it just really helps me to relax and fall asleep. I normally will have chamomile tea but I received these in my last BirchBox and I really like them.

Having days like this isn't just healthy for mind, it's also healthy for your body. High stress levels and over working your body can just throw everything out of wack in your body. It's really good to just relax and put your worries aside for just one day. I love having these days because they remind of what really matters in life is happiness. If you are hard on yourself like I am about your outer appearance, little things like these can help you see just how beautiful you really are .

I really hope you Beauts liked this post and found it really helpful ! Hope you all have a beautiful day !

Garnier Clean+ Nourishing Cleansing Oil Review !

Hi Beauts !

So, I was on the hunt for a new make up remover after I ran out of my previous one. I always like to try out new make up removers and see if I like them or not and maybe find a new favorite. Lately, I have been really wanting to try out an oil cleanser and see if they work well or not and if I like them or not. Now when I saw this one at the store I was contemplating it because it's an oil base cleanser and I have oily skin. I thought oil on top of oil, can't be good but still I thought I'd give it a shot. So far I give this a 3.5 out of 5. It takes off almost all of your make up and doesn't leave an oily residue on your face afterwards. It does however, make your eye sight cloudy and can sometimes leaves you with a bit of raccoon eyes, nothing a cotton ball can't fix. When I use it, I like to apply the oil on my face and work it in and then move on to my eyes. When I rub this into my eyes, I try to do it as gentle as possible and really work it in. I probably spend more time rubbing in the oil on my eyes to get rid of the mascara and eyeliner than my face. When you add water it becomes a soapy cleanser and I think that's what makes all the difference. It definitely helps to prevent any greasy residue left behind and it definitely leaves your face clean. You know that great feeling when you just washed your face and it feels clean ? Yeah, this definitely gives that feeling.

I really do like this product and I plan to continue to use it. It is an easier method to remove your make up which I definitely like, I just really dislike the cloudy sight afterwards. It has yet to break me out and I use it on an almost every day base and it works. I hope you Beauts found this review helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, especially if they have try skin. If you try it out, let me know in the comments, I'm curious to know what you Beauts think of it ! Hope you all have an amazing day. Thank you for reading !

What's In My Make Up Bag !

Hi Beauts !

I have always enjoyed these posts, whether it's a blog post or a YouTube video. When it comes to my make up bag or even my purse, I become a hoarder. I start throwing things in there that I don't use on a day to day base and forget, and when It's time to organize I have a million things and can barely close the bag. I keep what I use almost every day in my make up bag, it makes it way easier when I'm in a hurry. I actually don't like taking my make up bag everywhere with me, unless I'm traveling or staying over a friend's house. The most I'll keep in my purse is lip balm or whatever I'm wearing on my lips that day, that's pretty much it. My make up bag is constantly changing what it has inside because I'm constantly changing things in my routine. Some days I like a more on my eyes, but the majority of my days, I like simple and natural make up. So this is what I currently have in my make up bag !

my make up bag !

Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara- This is one of three mascaras I have to have. I love it because it separates my lashes and they definitely don't clump up. I never really use the same mascara every day, it honestly depends on my mood and how I want my mascara to look. So if I want my eyelashes separated and lengthened I will go with this one.

e.l.f Eyebrow Kit- I really like having my eyebrows filled in, it makes them look nice and neat. On days where I don't really feel like wearing make up but want to look presentable, I will only apply the powder and it looks really natural. I really like this kit because before I tried this one, all the other were either too dark or would fade away. This one stays all day, doesn't fade and matches perfectly.

MAC Fluidline Eye Liner- I love this eyeliner and probably use it almost every day. It applies super dark and smooth and stays on all day. I personally like gel eyeliner best and this is one that has to always be in my make up bag.

MAC ProLongwear Paint Pot in Painterly- I swear by this stuff. When I decide to not wear any eye shadow or want minimal make up on, this is the only thing I will apply on my eyes. It brightens and evens out my eyelids, doesn't crease and matches my skin tone almost perfectly.

Eos Smooth Sphere Lip Balm Summer Fruit- I am a bit of a lip balm addict, I will keep buying new ones even when I have a bunch already. This is the one I currently have in my make up bag, and I really like it. It moisturizes my lips perfectly and is a great base for when I want to apply something over it.

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion- Whenever I wear and thing on my eyes, I always use this primer and it's my favorite. So far It's the only primer that works really well with my oily eyelids.

Benefit They're Real ! Mascara- This mascara is another favorite of mine. It accentuates your natural lashes, separates them and makes them look real pretty. I don't really like the look of really thick clumpy eyelashes, I like them to look like my natural lashes but longer and more

Benefit the POREfessional Primer- This primer shrinks my pores into nothing and smooths out my skin. For a bit I stopped using this and now that I think about it, I don't know why. This primer works really well but also doesn't turn my face into a grease ball, which products can do.

Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara- This is the only clear mascara I have ever really used on my eyebrows. It does the job well, it's one of my favorite products and only costs like $3. So it's a win.

Dr.Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm- I like my current foundation, however some days I just want something that's going to even out my skin tone and provide little coverage. This BB cream has pretty good coverage, feels really light on my skin and hasn't broken me out, which is good. I can either apply it with my hands or a brush

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick 101- This lipstick is the perfect pink nude color. It looks great when I do a neutral eye using the Naked Basics palette or when all I on my face is some color on my lips.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette- This palette is one of my absolute favorites. It's great for neutral looks, which are some of my favorites, but you can also great some great bold looks as well.

Lancome Artliner Precision Point EyeLiner- Lately, I have been practicing my liquid liner and trying to get the hang of it. This is my favorite liquid liner I have tried so far, it's very black and opaque, isn't streaky or too liquidy. It's also really easy to apply.

Revlon Eyelash Curler- The only drugstore eyelash curler that actually curls my lashes, rather than bending them, so to say. My previous eyelash curler, didn't actually curl them, it would crimp them so they kind of looked like the letter L.

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara- And my third favorite mascara. This mascara gives great volume and separates your lashes perfectly, but what I like the most is it doesn't make your lashes crunchy. Once it dries, your lashes are really soft and flexible and don't flake.

Maybelline Mineral Power Finishing Veil- When I first bought this and tried it out, I couldn't see a difference on my face. Then I decided to try it again and I love it. It sets my make up in place without being too powdery, and just helps your skin look flawless.

I hope you Beauts like this post ! I try not to keep a lot in my make up bag, but as I'm looking over this, I'm realizing I have a lot in my make up bag. What is one thing you HAVE to have in your make up bag ? Leave a comment down below and let me know !
