Yellow eyeshadow seems to be all the rage, but even though I love the look, I’m a bit yellow-bellied when it comes wearing it myself – here are 3 different yellow eyeshadow looks that will hopefully help me overcome my fear!
Hey guys!! Just wanted to give a shout-out to TJ Maxx. I always forget how cool their beauty section can actually be; and usually very reasonable. This time, I only found a couple of things but I was also in a rush since I had my kiddo with me. However, I’m excited to try out some new products. Here’s the laydown so far.
I found these neat little Shea Butter Lip Masks; they were like $3 for 5. I gave one to my sister to try. I’ve been intrigued by lip masks and I absolutely LOVE Shea Butter so I’m super excited to try this out.
Sorry for the blurry photo!! This is a Hydrate facial serum from VALJEAN LABS. You can get this product at Urban Outfitters for $15… or you can go to TJ Maxx and get it for 1/2 the price. The jar is made entirely of glass (super fannnncy) and the serum is blue-colored in the bottle. I’m super stoked to try this! Dry skin is NOT fannnncy so maybe this will actually help? They also have other serums like Clarify, Restore, and Glow. I’ll try the Restore next time!
This product I actually got from CVS but wanted to throw it in. It’s the Physician’s Formula Butter Highlighter. I’ve already tested this product. The pros are that the highlighter smells like a really good cocoa butter/sunscreen scent. It has a TON of pigment (the photo doesn’t really do it justice… it SHINES) and is easily affordable. HOWEVER, the color I purchased was Rose Gold. I think this was a tad too dark for my skin-tone. I noticed when I applied it, it looked like a really bad contour job. I had to blend and blend and even sweep some away with a wet wipe and by that point, there really wasn’t any highlight left to be noticeable. It didn’t look that dark in the canister but I think next time, I’ll go with the Pearl or the Pink color.
All-in-all, I’m excited about my purchases and will definitely do separate reviews for the lip masks and serum soon.
Any of you beauties have any hauls lately? Would love to hear about them in the comments!! Stay beautiful. =D
Little known fact about me: I love rummaging around in my kitchen, mixing up random ingredients, and then smearing them all over my hair and face… just to see what happens. Sometimes the results are worth the enormous mess I will inevitably make. Sometimes I end up picking avocado out of my hair for two […]
Hey guys!! So I was scrolling through article after article of beauty “tips” that various bloggers, celebrities, and just people in general write and/or talk about and I wanted to do kind of the opposite of that. What’s a beauty “tip” that you actually cannot stand and perhaps hasn’t worked for you in the past?
For me, I’d have to say a beauty tip I loathe is anyone advertising tanning as a way to make your cellulite/skin look more even and smooth. I am all about body positivity and doing what makes you feel more confidant. But I am NOT about advertising damaging your skin either by laying out all day or being inside a confining tanning bed. If you want to “tan” your skin, I’d definitely recommend either a spray tan or one of those temporary tanners. Skin cancer is on the rise and it’s just going to become more prevalent if we keep advertising tanning as a way to look more beautiful.
I am happy with my ghost self, thank you very much. =D
Hey Beauties! I’ve seen this line from Avon called Mark for a while now and finally made a purchase to see what the hype is about. In order to find out if their products are worth it I would usually pick my top two which are foundations and lip products. A few of Avon products have been […]
Hey friends 🙌, Here I am. ..again with a review 😉. This time it is a bodywash from Dove. I have been using Dove soap, on and off, since my childhood. I love the moisturisation they provide, but hate the slimy feeling […]
Hey lovelies!! So, as someone who emphasizes my eyes more than any other feature, it got me wondering about what your favorite eyeliner style is? I generally do a winged look (and I will feature photos in other blog posts eventually) but it doesn’t always work out the way I want. I prefer a felt-tipped pen vs a liquid liner as I feel more steady with a felt-tip then I do with a tiny little brush.
I have been getting into liquid lipsticks lately but I try and reserve the bolder colors for night out. Having said that, I still definitely enjoy playing up my eyes the most as I actually really love my eyes and making them pop.
How I wish my eyeliner looked (a girl can dream)!!

What’s your favorite feature to play up? Let me know in the comments below!!
*Disclaimer: None of these photos are mine nor do I claim credit for any of them. I simply used them to enhance the article and to give examples of different eyeliner looks so my readers could understand the blog post better.
I am 100% a fan of masks. I think they have beautiful benefits (soft skin, draw out impurities, give your skin a boost of radiance, etc) and most of the time are super cheap! I’ve photographed some of my (still growing) collection and then picked a few to feature in this post. Read on to find out more!
This nugg charcoal skin detox mask was sent to me by a good friend of mine. She knew I had been going through some rough times and sent me the sweetest care package to cheer me up. (Thanks Christina!!) I was super excited to see this nugg mask in there. I am a HUGE fan of charcoal masks because they do a great job of drawing out all those toxins and impurities while making your skin super fresh. Just make sure you definitely moisturize after using a charcoal mask as they can tend to be a little drying for the skin. These come in individual pods and retail from $3-4 depending on location.
This Que Bella Multi Mask Cream Face Trio came in one of my beauty boxes from Target. I’m a little wary of trying it as many of the reviews on Target.com said the Charcoal Mud Mask (first one) burned their skin. Ouch! So.. we will see if I actually end up using this. I was intrigued at first as I’ve never seen a 3-step mask before.
Earth Therapeutics is one of my favorite brands for masks and this Earth Therapeutics Nourishing Avocado Mask is no exception. This is a sheet mask and I will say that I prefer creamier masks when avocado is featured as an ingredient. However, this mask has a great and subtle scent and you can literally feel your skin being moisturized as you wear it. I’ve used this mask numerous times to help calm my skin and give back some moisture to it. This mask comes in singles or in a 5-pack.
This was a new one for me. Yes to Carrots Nutrition Boosting Paper Mask touts being made of Cotton, with tons of vitamin A and E for a radiant glow. I’m eager to try this as I love most of the Yes To line. If anyone has tried this mask before, let me know in the comments below
If you see a mask you want me to try in my first photo, let me know and I’ll do a special feature on it! Thanks beauties!
Sleeping with long hair can wreck even the best of blow outs overnight—literally. But you don’t have to wake up to greet a hot mess of bedhead in the mirror every morning. There are actually some amazing tactics on how to wear your hair to bed that can make all the difference. Here, we present…
I am a huge eyeshadow fan.. I accentuate my eyes more then any other facial feature. I have an ever-growing palette collection so I thought I’d feature some of my most used and most favorite ones. You’ll be able to see by the photos that some are used quite heavily. I didn’t bother cleaning up around the edges because I prefer real beauty. Real beauty INCLUDES showing products lived in (i.e. used). Enjoy!!
First, I’d like to talk about BH Cosmetic’s Solar Flare palette. This is a GORGEOUS palette and retails for $15.99. You can pick it up for cheaper if you follow their sales cycles. I think when I purchased mine it was 13.99 and came with a free brush set. Score!! This palette has amazingly rich colors (my favorites being galactic and heat and gamma ray). Fallout is minimal but definitely use a primer before applying these shadows. My photos don’t do this palette justice, but trust me, these colors POP!
Secondly, Be by BubzBeauty which retails for $14.50 is a much used palette. It’s got great neutral colors that are appropriate for the work environment with some fun little colors for evening. Blendable, buildable, and as you can tell from the photo, definitely heavily used!
Third, Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette which retails for $36 is AMAZEBALLS. If you aren’t familiar with too faced products, their palettes smell like candy! It’s exhilarating. I love this palette because its compact and adorable. Plus, it comes with a great little looks card giving you examples of different looks you can create with their shadows. Now, this was definitely a little out of my comfort zone as I don’t tend to wear very bright colors like what’s featured in this palette. However, I scored it for super cheap on one of their sales and ended up LOVING it!!
Last but not least, PUR Love Your Selfie 2 Palette which retails for $42 is one of my newest additions to my family. Now, you might be looking at the price wondering “how is this a budget palette?”. Well, normally, it isn’t. However, I was able to snag it on clearance at a local Kohl’s department store for the ridiculous price of $8.40!! This palette is amazing not only because of the shadows it contains, but also because it comes with a mascara, lip crayon AND lip-gloss which makes it an amazing value. I especially like the highlight color (overexposed) and the lip crayon is quite pretty. (Sorry..my flash decided to go off in this photo so doesn’t show the colors quite well!!)
There you have it!! I’ll eventually go into more in depth review on each palette individually but I do hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know which are some of your favorite palettes and any comments you might have for me. Stay beautiful lovelies!
*note.. I realize I have a CARGO palette featured in the first photo. This was the ALOHA palette which was beautiful but currently no longer available. I didn’t feel right featuring it as I wouldn’t be able to provide a link to purchase it. Apologies!!*
