Sephora Birthday Gift 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be talking about the 2019 Sephora birthday gift. My birthday is on Friday and my gift was delivered yesterday, so it’s perfect timing. I’m a Sephora Beauty Insider and I’m super close to VIB status. For those who have VIB and Rouge status, you can choose from four options when it comes to your birthday month and Insiders can choose from two. The four options are a Milk Makeup Mascara and Cooling Water set, 250 bonus points, Drunk Elephant Moisturizer and Cleanser set and Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner, Setting Powder and Lipstick set. The two options are the Drunk Elephant Moisturizer and Cleanser set and the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner, Setting Powder and Lipstick set.

I chose the Kat Von D Beauty Tattoo Liner, Setting Powder and Lipstick set. I love everything Kat Von D Beauty, so it was the perfect choice. On the top of the box it says Happy Birthday! in English and Joyeux Anniversaire! in French, which I think is a nice little detail.

The only thing that I had used in this set prior to getting it is the Tattoo Liner and I love it. This one, and the one that I use, are in Trooper. This eyeliner has a really fine tip, it goes on really smooth and it’s incredibly long lasting. Once you put it on you know it’s going to be there all day.

I had heard really good things about the Lock It Setting Powder, so I was happy to see that it was included in here. I’m wearing it now and I quite like it. It’s really light, silky and my look it definitely locked it. I definitely recommend it.

And the final product that we have is the Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick trio. This is a sample of three crème lipsticks, Outlaw, Lolita and Vampira. Outlaw is a nice almost brick red, Lolita is a light brown with pink undertones and Vampira is a dark burgundy. I haven’t ever tried any of the Crème Lipsticks, so I’m excited to and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have tried any of the Crème lipsticks let me know, I’d love to know what your favorite shade is.

Until next time, enjoy the Sephora birthday gifts and Happy Birthday to my fellow Capricorns :).

Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to go through the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette. I’ve used this a few times since getting it, one of those pictures will be included, and I love it. It’s a gorgeous palette and I 100% recommend it if you don’t already have it. I quite like the packaging, the sparkly brown is a great representation of what you’re going to see when you open it. And I like that the box matches the palette.

abh2

abh3

The mirror that you get with this palette is really good and I actually use it when I use the palette, which I don’t always do. And you get a double ended eye shadow brush. So with this you get 14 eye shadows, mattes and metallics, they’re really nicely pigmented and the color payoff is fantastic.

abh4

abh5

I swatched these on my arm, so the first one is Fresh, which is a really light matte pinky shade, then you have Pearl, which is a light pink metallic. Steampunk is a rich gold, Rose Quartz is a gorgeous rose gold. Then you have Ember, which is a dark grey/brown with a gold sparkle. Bloom is a matte coraly shade and Birch is a light matte brown.

abh6

On the bottom you have Cinder, a really pretty medium brown and Twig which is a light matte brown. Next is Teak, a goldy/brown, I’ve worn this one and it’s so nice on, and beside that is Dystopian, a dark matte brown. Then you have Cyborg, a very sparkly silver, Slate, a nice matte grey and finally Noir, which is a dark blue/black.

abh7

On New Years Eve I used a few of these shadows to create my look and I’m still really happy with the way it came out.

abh1

Last week I used Twig, Teak and Dystopian to create a look and the only picture I took was in black and white, otherwise I would include it.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have this palette I’d love to know what your favorite shadows are and what your favorite look is that you’ve done using it.

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eye shadow palettes :).

Sephora Favorites The New Neutrals Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be going through the Sephora Favorites The New Neutrals lipstick box with you guys. This is one of the things that I got for Christmas and since then I’ve worn a few of the lipsticks and I’m loving them. So, I thought it would be fun to talk about and show you guys what you get in this box. I don’t know if you can still get this at Sephora, if I can find a link I’ll put it down below and if not I’ll put the links to the individual lipsticks.

nn1

Within this box you get five lipsticks, one of which is full size and the range of brands is quite nice.

nn2

The first one we have is the full size and it’s the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Crush. This is one that I’ve worn and I really like it. It feels light on the lips, the formulation is great, it’s really long lasting and it smells good. Color wise, it’s a peachy nude and I would definitely recommend this. It’s really pretty.

nn3

nn8

The second lipstick we have is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Crush. I wore this on New Years Eve, I mixed it with MDM Flow Retro and I really liked how it came out. This is a matte lipstick and it’s in a  pinky beige shade. This is the first time I’ve worn one of the Anastasia Beverly Hills lipsticks and I’ll definitely be buying more.

nn4

nn9

Next we have the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. This is a plumping lip gloss that’s clear with a pinky blue shine. I haven’t worn this yet, but I’ve heard really good things, so I’m excited to try it. Plus it smells really good.

nn5

The second to last lipstick we have is the Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ludwig. I’m a fan of Kat Von D Beauty, so I’m always excited to try out one of her products. This a matte lipstick, that I haven’t worn yet, but from the swatch I did I can tell it’s highly pigmented and it went on really smooth. This is a nudey brown in color and I know this comes in a bunch of other colors, so I’m sure I’ll be trying some of those as well.

nn6

nn10

And the last lipstick we have is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick in Salt Lyfe. This I have worn and I really like it, I have two other lipsticks from this collection, so I knew I would like it. These lipsticks are really pigmented and moisturizing. This one in particular is a pinky brown and has a purple undertone. It’s really nice on.

nn7

nn11

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have tried this box or any of these lipsticks, I’d love to know what your favorite is.

Until next time, do you prefer matte or glossy and you can never have too many lipsticks :).

Erin Condren Life Planner Review

Hi everyone,

Happy New Year! I hope that you guys are having a good year so far. I enjoyed the break but I’m happy to be back. And today I’m going to be talking about something I’m really excited about and that is my Erin Condren Life Planner. If you guys read my December Favorites, there was a little section where I talked about what I got for Christmas and within that there were three things that are getting their own post, and this is one of them. So, let’s get into it.

I consider myself a pretty organized person, but this bumps it up to the next level and for that I’m excited. The planner that I got is the Metallic Painted Petals Life Planner in Turquoise and Platinum. It’s in the vertical layout and it does have my name on the front.

ecp1

ecp2

ecp3

When you open it it says You Have Everything Inside You To Be And Do Anything You Want, which I think is a great message.

ecp10

Then there’s an overview of the last couple months of 2018 and all of 2019 and twelve boxes, which I have assigned to a month.

ecp4

ecp5

At the beginning of each month there is a different saying and the one for January is What You Seek Is Seeking You and each month is colored differently.

ecp6

Then you have a calendar layout of each month and this one you’ll notice is from different months because I wrote some stuff on the other side of January before I took pictures. And there is a place for notes and a preview of the next month on the side.

ecp7

ecp8

After the calendar style layout, you have the week laid out for you with three boxes each day and space to write notes at the bottom and the side.

ecp9

When you get to the back of the planner, after the months, you have four lined pages to write notes, four pages of dots and three coloring pages.

ecp11

ecp12

ecp13

The next thing you have a page for contacts and an overview of 2020 with space for notes/goals

ecp14

ecp15

I somehow forgot to take a picture of this, but there’s a page that says Arriving At One Goal Is The Start Of Another. Then four pages of stickers,

ecp18

The last section of the planner is folder pockets. One side is deep and the other is shorter and it says Shine Your Brightest. In the folder came a pink Perpetual calendar.

ecp19

ecp20

ecp21

ecp22

This planner came with a plastic pouch called the Plan For It Pouch. In the pouch was a 20% off card, which I did use because I bought some pens, compliment cards, gift labels and a clip. The clip is plastic and if you want you can stick to the pouch and clip it into your planner. Which I love, so convenient.

ecp16

ecp17

That about wraps it up for this post, I can’t wait to really start using this and I’d love to know, are you guys planner people or do you like some other method?

Until next time, happy planning and here’s to a great 2019 :).

December Favorites and 2018 Wrap Up

Hi everyone,

Today, as there’s only a couple of days left in the month, I’m going to be doing my December favorites and kind of wrapping up 2018. I have quite a few things to talk about, so let’s get into it.

Starting off with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my December Sephora Play Box. The first is the Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer- Peaches and Cream Collection. I used this on Christmas Day and I really like it. It blurs any imperfections you have and it helps to brighten your skin. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a primer. And it smells like peaches and cream which is nice bonus. The Peaches and Cream collection is really great.

DSP6

My second favorite is the Trestique Lip Glaze in Paris Pink. I’ve worn this a couple times since getting it and I like it a lot. I would say it’s in between a lipstick and a lip balm. The color is really nice, it’s really long lasting and it’s very hydrating. I’m definitely going to be checking out Trestique to see their other products.

DSP2

DSP9

And my last Sephora Play favorite is the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude. This is a really pretty nudey brown and it goes with so many different lipsticks. I like that it’s really soft on the lips and basically glides on. And it has a matte finish. It’s got everything going for it. You can get this in something like 40 shades and I have a couple sitting in my cart right now that I’ll go and purchase after this.

DSP7

DSP8

Moving on, my next favorite is Christmas and within that what I got for Christmas. Starting with my stocking, my parents are pretty good at nailing stocking stuffers. Besides some of my favorite candy, there was a bottle of  Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Spray, which is one of my favorite Bath & Body Works scents. A pack of hair ties, which is always needed, and a little loofa. There was also three mini products. I keep a little kit in my handbag that’s full of minis for all situations, so any additions to it I like. So there’s a Crest 3D White toothpaste, a Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate and Mango Infusions Moisturizing Body Wash and a Gold Bond Ultimate Skin Therapy Cream with Aloe.

CP1

Moving on to my actual presents, there were a few things I didn’t take pictures of and those were socks and some black tank tops, the basics. I did get one other clothing item and it’s a Mariners sweatshirt. I have some Mariners gear but I didn’t have any sweatshirts and I didn’t have any gear in the Sunday colors which are navy blue and gold. I wore this yesterday, it’s super comfortable and cozy and I like the way it fits.

CP10

Next I have a couple of beauty presents and each of these are going to get their own posts, so I’m not going to get too in depth about them. The first is the Sephora Collection The New Neutrals. This is a little box that has five different nude/neutral lipsticks and they’re all really pretty. I’ve worn two of them so far and I’m really happy with them. I’m excited to get into the details of this box.

CP2

The second beauty item is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette. I’ve been drooling over this palette since I opened it and honestly I still kind of am. I’ve worn three of the colors so far, not at the same time, but I’m so happy with it. It’s a gorgeous palette.

CP3

CP4

I have one music item and it’s Jeff Lynne’s ELO Wembley Or Bust concert. I bought this on iTunes and have been listening to it but I have yet to watch it and this comes with two CDs and one Blu Ray. I’m definitely excited to watch this.

CP6

CP7

CP8

My last two items are lifestyle related. The first is new headphones. Mine were just old and I had gotten a lot of use out of them. And it’s always funny to me when you get new ones to remember what they’re supposed to sound like.

CP5

The second is also getting it’s own post and it’s an Erin Condren Life Planner. The one I got is the teal and platinum, has my name on it and is the vertical layout. I’m so happy with this, I’ve already started writing in things and I can’t wait to use it throughout 2019.

CP9

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to thank each and everyone of you for reading, following, liking, commenting and everything else. It means a lot. I hope you guys had a good year and here’s to an even better 2019.

Until next time, I hope you all had a great December and I appreciate you all :).

Blogmas Day Twelve: Christmas Nails

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Twelve! I can’t believe it’s already the last day, it’s truly flown by. I really enjoyed it and I’ll probably do it again next year. Today I’m going to be talking about and showing you guys the different nails that I this month. I do festive nails every December and I find it to be a lot of fun, so let’s get into it.

The first week was kind of fail on my part because I forgot, until I was taking the polish off, that I hadn’t taken a picture. But what I did because I wanted something simple to start off, was matte red. And what I used for that was Sinful Colors 852, GoGo Girl and Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat.

HD1

The second manicure I did was in keeping with the simple theme and it’s silver and gold. But I wanted it to be slightly different so I did matte silver and shiny gold. If I had a sparkly silver polish I probably would’ve used that because I do have a couple different sparkly golds. But I am happy with how these came out.

HD2

To do this I used p2 Techno Chrome polish in 010, Steel Drama and I topped that with the Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat. The gold is Kokie NP45, Euphoria which is topped with the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

HD3

Week three I got into the more intricate designs and I went with Santa nails. I don’t do them every year but I think they’re really fun to do.

HD5

For this I did use one little brush to make sure the belt was relatively the same on all of them. And the polishes I used were Sinful Colors 852, GoGo Girl (red), LA Colors Color Last CNP31, Onyx (black), Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 485, Golden-I (gold) and on top Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

HD4

And the last one I did, the one I have on my nails now, is present nails. I really like this design and I’m pretty sure I do these every year but they’re always cute and they make me feel festive. Plus they’re super easy.

HD6

For this I used Pure Ice 1026, Hit The Floor (red), Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 485, Golden-I (gold), the bow is the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art pen in 380, Red and I topped that with the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys did festive nails this December tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram because I’d love to see.

Until next time, thank you all reading the 12 Days of Blogmas, I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: A Year Of Sephora Play

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! I can’t believe Blogmas is almost over, it’s just flown by. Today I thought it would be fun to go through all of the Sephora Play Boxes I’ve received this year and talk about my favorites from each/what I’ve repurchased. I do a monthly favorites each month and I do talk about some of the Play products, but I’ve had more time to use all of them now and really suss them out. So, let’s get into it.

The first bag I got was in February. I did miss the January box so February was my intro to Sephora Play and it was a good intro.

FSP1

I genuinely love everything in this bag and I use all of them. This eye cream is the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb and it’s my favorite, I talk about it all the time. I will leave links below for each month if you guys want to know more about each of the products.

MPB1

March brought one of my favorite bags and love for new brands. Prior to this I hadn’t used any Amika products and this hair mask changed things for me. I repurchased this pretty much immediately and I’m still using and loving it. And the Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist with SPF 50 was one of my go-to products this summer. It locked in my look and protected my face, I definitely recommend it.

ASP1

April was for blurring and shining. The IT Cosmetics Powder has become a fixture in my makeup bag and I love it. The shine part of this comes from the Urban Decay Hi-fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss. When I got this box those had just come out and since then I’ve explored the different colors and I even bought some as little stocking stuffers.

MSP1

The May Box had a classic vibe to it, the bag itself has a very Americana feel, which I love. I use the Marc Jacobs mascara regularly, it’s in my mascara rotation and I’m wearing the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner today. The YSL Black Opium remains one of my favorite scents of the year.

JNSP

June gave me a current favorite and two new skincare favorites. When I got this I had been using and loving the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in the shade Queen B which is exactly what this is and I was happy to see it. The formulation of these lipsticks is really great, there is a wide range of colors and the color payoff is fantastic. Before this I had never used a water gel before and that changed with the Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel, I loved this during the summer months and I have repurchased it. And then there was the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes and Lips. You guys know how much I love this, it’s a great product.

JSP1

In July I added to my blush collection with this Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush, it’s a really pretty nudey pink. I added to the Caudalie section of my skincare cupboard with the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. I’m still using this and very much loving it. And I got another one of my favorite lip products, the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I really love these, they are incredibly moisturizing and they make your lips feel so soft.

AGSP1

The August Box had a Back To Beauty School theme and it got an A from me. I use pretty much all of these still and I’m happy with them.

SSP1

In September the bags switched over to these plastic bags with the Snap and Lock style closure, you can fit quite a bit in this bags. This is another month where I’m still using everything that I got and liking it.

OSP1

October gave me the primer I used today, the Tarte Rainforest of The Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. There are a few different primers I use and they’re all really great. It also gave me the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. I love this, it really brightens the skin and it’s quick absorbing.

NSP1

November was another really great box and I’m wearing this perfume today. It’s Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, it smells so good.

DSP1

I just got the December Box two days ago, my unboxing went up yesterday, so I’ve only used one of the products so far. It’s the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude and I really like it.

That about wraps it up for this post, Sephora sent me a ton of amazing products this year and if you guys were doing Play I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, Sephora Play was definitely worth it, I’m excited to continue next year and I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas :).
