Trend to Love: Yellow Eyeshadow? (Reblogged from tricks & trucco)

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!

Great Review on L’Oréal Pure Clay Glow Mask (Reblogged from Beauty Rant)

I’ve reviewed quite a few clay face masks on Beauty Rant over the last year or so, including the ever hyped L’Oreal Detox Mask and the Blemish Rescue Mask, so I thought it was only right to continue the series with a review of the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Glow Face Mask. My skin is […]

TJ Maxx Mini-Haul

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

DIY Face Masks is a must for BB’s!! *Budget Beauties* (Reblogged from Feeding Your Beauty)

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 […]

Effortlessly Dewy Skin (Reblogged from StyleCaster)

As someone who is constantly on the go and craving small pockets of relaxation, there are two instances when my skin feels and looks its best: just after a hot shower and the minutes following a sweaty hot yoga sesh. Not only does my body feel re-energized, but my face looks ridiculously dewy, as if…

Beauty “Tip” You Hate

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

An honest review of Avon/Mark Products (Reblogged from Beauty by Reeva)

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 […]

Drew is one of my style icons!! (Reblogged from StyleCaster)

Welcome to another day of body and beauty-shaming (collective eye-roll). In the last week, we’ve seen people stereotype Bella Thorne as a “partier” because of her acne; others deem Ashley Graham not a “real model” because of her size; and today, we have an equally infuriating situation: people are judging Drew Barrymore not for how she looks…
