January Ipsy Glam Bag!!

Hey guys! It’s Ipsy Glam Bag time again! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now then you know that each month I receive an Ipsy Glam Bag in the mail that consists of a new make-up bag and 4 to 5 products to sample. I absolutely adore receiving these in the mail as it is always like a little gift to myself and the perfect time to try new products!

This month I received a blue and white bag with an orange zipper. And although I think it is totally sweet I do find it a little summery and was surprised to receive it as the January bag. 
However inside I absolutely adore the products. This month I received the Hey Honey Take it Off exfoliating face mask. This product is so refreshing and different from other masks I’ve tried as it is a peel off mask. It smells amazing and made my skin feel so moisturized and soft.
Next I received a lipgloss from Velvet 59 by Paris Manning in the color Noisette. This is a stunning nude gloss that is the loveliest color. However it is quite sticky, and honestly I really don’t love sticky lip glosses. But the color is really beautiful for people who don’t mind a sticky lipgloss.
There is also a liquid eyeliner from Coastal Scents. I’ve never heard of this brand but the brush applicator is amazing and super fine and is perfect for a dramatic cat eye look.
Lastly I received a beautiful eye shadow from the brand Pacifica in the shade etherial that is entirely natural and infused with coconut oil for a velvet finish. The color is really beautiful and just slightly shimmery. It is really really beautiful.
Overall I really like all of the products I received in this month’s bag however overall I really think their theme is pushing for a really summery look which I find interesting. Have any tried Ipsy Glam Bags?

One Minute Eye Make-Up!

Hi everyone!! Do you ever wake up incredibly late for work or school? Or do you even have days where you wake up and just want 10 extra minutes to sleep? Well I have two products that I now swear by that give me bright and awake eyes and don't take up any of my precious sleep time!

The first product that I absolutely adore is the Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow in the color R.S.V.P. This product is super easy to apply, you can just use the tip of your finger and it instantly brightens your eyes and makes you look much more awake! This product blends really easily, and after just adding a layer of mascara your eyes are complete!
The second product that I love alternatively is the Bare Minerals 5 in 1 Eye Shadow. This is another eye product with super easy application. It has a wand attached to the cap and can be lightly blended with the tip of your finger.  This product is amazing as it has primer and sunscreen infused in the formula and also plumps fine lines. It is really beautifully pigmented and instantly gives your eyes a fresh and awake image. Again just add a swoosh of mascara and you're ready for the day!
Buy the Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow at Sephora! and you can buy the Bare Minerals 5 in 1 Eye Shadow at Sephora!

Sephora Fiber Masks | Pamper Time!

Happy Wednesday everybody! We're already halfway through the week and I think it the perfect time to take a little break and have a little pamper session to get us through the rest of the week! Over the weekend I took a trip to Sephora and found these beauties. 

I picked up several different flavors as each one has different cleansing, brightening, and perfecting properties for your skin!
The Honey Mask directly focuses on nourishing and balancing your skin.  
The second mask is a Pearl mask that perfects and brightens while soothing irregularities in your skin
The third mask is the Green Tea mask which focuses on mattifying and cleansing blemishes from your skin.
Lastly is the rose mask that is ultra moisturizing and brightening to instantly boost your skin for a radiant glow!
These masks are perfect for a spa night with your friends or just when you want to pamper yourself!
Pick them up at Sephora!

The Only Palette I'l Ever Need | Naked 3

Hello everyone! For the longest time I have resisted purchasing any of the Naked palettes. As much as I admired them,  I found them to be a bit pricey and I honestly didn't want to buy into all of the hype.
However, as time has passed I've found myself reading more and more reviews on the palettes and wanting one for myself! By Christmas I was aching to get my hands on the Naked 3 palette and it just so happened that Santa had brought me a surprise!

My Urban Decay palette of choice was the Naked 3 which consists of 12 rose gold themed shadows in a beautiful rose gold tin package.  This palette has 9 shimmer shadows and 3 matte shades that can be combined for a beautiful wide range of looks from natural barely there make-up to dramatic smokey looks.

I have used all of these shades so much in the last few weeks that I have barely used any other eyeshadows, but I thought I could share with you some of my favorite combinations that I use the most!
For a barely there make up look: On your eyelid use Limit (fourth shade) along your crease use Nooner (seventh shade) and use Strange (first shade) for a highlight on the inside corner of your eye and under your brow. 
TIP: if you want to move this look from day to night use BlackHeart (twelfth shade) along your lash line for a smokey liner. Also feel free to add a little sparkle by patting in Dust (second shade) or Buzz (fourth shade) to really make your eyes pop!!
So there you go! I am absolutely obsessed with this palette I think it is really flattering and can especially make blue eyes pop! However all three of the Naked palettes are absolutely beautiful and which ever one suits your skin tone will be the best for you! If you are interested, you can pick up any of the three Naked palettes at Sephora!
