#BEAUTYHAUL

Hey, guys! I'm so excited about this beauty haul because most of the items are products I've never tried before like the Kat Von D Shade + Light palette! Since it's debut, I've been dying to get my hands on the Shade + Light palette but wasn't sure about it because there's so much competition! Cosmetic companies have been stepping up their contouring game and coming out with so many awesome tools to help bring definition to your face! It makes it difficult to choose! But after countless of hours watching YouTube videos, I'm confident that this is the best palette you can contour with. I hope I'm right! There's also a lot of buzz surrounding Too Faced's Born This Way Foundation. I watched many beauty gurus get ready with it and I've heard several mix reviews about it, so I figured I'll try it out myself. Plus, my face has been extremely dry, even after applying every moisturizer I own and the Born This Way foundation is infused with coconut water to help hydrate your skin. I'm intrigued so hopefully it wins me over!

KAT VON D LOCK-IT CONCEALER CREME AND LOCK-IT SETTING POWDER REVIEW


Recently I've been obsessed with concealer and translucent setting powder. Mainly because I apply concealer almost every day for my dark under eye circles (they are horrible!), and then I set it with setting powder to perform as long as it could. I love the result I get from this technique, so today's post is a review of Kat Von D's latest Lock-It Concealer Creme and Lock-It Setting Powder, and I'm excited to share my thoughts with you.

WEARING A CANVAS CAP

baseballhat
I've been wearing this hat everyday this week and to be honest it's a little embarrassing, especially when others start to notice and suspiciously ask why all of a sudden am I always wearing a hat, but I can't help it! It's the ideal cover up for a bad hair day and lately I've been too lazy to do anything with my hair. *Looks up quick and easy hair tutorials for lazy girls.* Once I'm inspired to do my hair again, I'll ditch the hat for a while but until then I'm going to praise it's cuteness and thank it for coming through on my off days.

BITE BEAUTY AMUSE BOUCHE LIPSTICKS REVIEW & SWATCHES

Hello, loves! I'm thrilled to share with you a few of Bite Beauty's lipsticks from their new Amuse Bouche collection. This collection is to replace Bite's previous beloved Luminous Creme Lipsticks, which sadly I never had the opportunity to try. The Amuse Bouche collection comes in 34 cream finish shades and claims to deliver extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.

First off I like the sleek black matte packaging and the way they shaped these lipsticks. I was able to apply it smoothly without using a lip liner or a lip brush. And because of its intense creaminess consistency, when I did mess up the application, it was easy to wipe off and correct. Since they are made from fresh pressed fruit, they have a yummy orange creamsicle scent to them. Bite Beauty's Lip products are created with natural and food-grade ingredients for beauty that's better for you and they do not contain petrochemicals. They are ultra hydrating and comfortable on the lips; I did not experience any feathering or dryness, and I usually do with a lip products since my lips chap easily. Naturally, they do transfer, but I am impressed with the lasting power of these lipsticks. I was able to wear it for a 9 hour day, and when I did take off the shade, BEETROOT, it left a lovely wine colored stain on my lips. The colors are highly pigmented and the three shades I got, I love!

GAZPACHO  this is a beautiful true blue-red shade, and it has easily become my favorite red lipstick in my collection. The fact that these lipsticks are so comfortable make this red lipstick my favorite. You can check it out here. BITE BEAUTY GAZPACHO SWATCH

I experienced the same moisturizing, opaque, creamy consistency in each one which I'm happy about. Since these are the best cream finish lipsticks I've tried, and they're made with natural ingredients, I think the price is fair. It all depends on what you want in a lipstick. So if you're looking for a hydrating, moisturizing, pigmented, long-lasting, so-good-you-can-BITE-into-it lipstick, then I recommend this to you.


Thank you Influenster and Bite Beauty for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

VALENTINE'S DAY GLAM MAKEUP TUTORIAL

Valentine's Day is almost here and just like dinner reservations, I like to know which outfit and makeup I'm going to wear ahead of time. Though I haven't decided what to wear yet, I did come up with this gorgeously glam makeup look. To me it caters to Valentine's Day with the rose gold shimmery eyes, nude lip and flirty dramatic eyelashes. I used some of my holy grail products like Urban Decays naked 3 palette and I'm so excited to share this tutorial with you. I'll have a Valentine's Day outfit up soon but I hope you enjoy this look! Let me know what you what you think!

WORKING IT OUT

Good morning and happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! I can't believe we are half way through January already! Have you been keeping up with your New Year's resolutions? Well, I've been trying! My goal this year is to tone up and gain strength because I am so weak! I've been making the effort to get up early every morning and work on building muscle. I'm not a fitness expert and I really dread working out, but I figured I'd share what I like to work out in since it motivates me. I believe it makes a difference when you feel good about what you're wearing while you exercise. I like to switch it up everyday but one item I'm currently loving is my Calvin Klein bra top. I'm not sure if this is right to be used while you work out, but it works for me and my small chest. Sports bras just don't cut it for me; I never like their padding and they are usually heavy and overwhelming. I don't need a whole lot of support, but the support that I do get from this bra top is perfect. Plus this top is really cute as lounge wear!

Lately I've been interested in cute sportswear {there are so many companies coming out with cute active wear}, and I'll be sharing more of my work out outfits later so look out for that. Have a blessed day!

DEMO + REVIEW: SINFULCOLORS SINFUL SHINE COLOR WITH GEL TECH

A month ago I received the Spice VoxBox from Influenster {you can check out the unboxing here} and inside were these two SinfulColors Sinful Shine Color With Gel Tech nail polishes. I own a bunch of SinfulColors nail polishes already and I love them, so of course I was eager to try out these new SinfulShine 2 step gel polishes!
SINFUL COLORS BLOG
I've never sported gel nails from the salon before, so I don't really know how they are suppose to turn out. However, I've seen some gel nails before and I love the shine on them. In 2 steps, these nail polishes are intended to shine just like gel nails from the salon without the hassle of using a lamp. Average cost: $5.00

I wasn't wowed by the color I received, it's not as colorful and vibrant as I like my nail polishes to be. Prosecco is pretty color but just not for me. I think the formula is wonderful and the shine is undeniably bright. I need to make my way to Walgreens and find a color I'd really like so I can enjoy this polish more! Thank you for stopping by!
