Totally Obsessed!

Hello my lovelies, how are youu? and if you’re wondering what I’ve been up to and why there hasn’t been a new post since my very last one; 200 Followers: Thank You. As much as I would love to create a new post for you, I just haven’t been able to :(. However, today on a chilly evening there is nothing I’d rather be doing than getting comfy with this totally cute blog post all while sipping my tea 🙂 oh what a feeling hehe, the leaves are falling, the wind is blowing, it’s all about the boots and cute sweater dresses!

Now you’re probably wondering where I’m going with my title here, is this about boots, a fall lookbook? umm… not exactly, when I say “Totally Obsessed” I’m talking about this guy over here, which is totally worth the obsession. But I ‘could’ do a post just on boots (that’s a great idea) 

Disclaimer: Get ready for a lot of pictures 🙂

Wanna know something interesting, no? oh well, I’m going to tell you anyways and that is… this is my first ever purchase of ”Too Faced’ products, yess! but don’t be surprised cause I only new to makeup and like most beginners of course I started out with other brands, which are really inexpensive. So yeah, this is totally getting me hyped, anddd… of course I’ve tried all the things I actually put them on as soon as I received them, expect two things, which I still haven’t tired It’s one of those where I had a feeling I was going to love it  not to mention that I seen everyone use it over and over again I am in love!

What’s Great About This? 

It lets you get your hands on all these things you want the most for like the price of one, also lets say you do want more of each product, you can simply purchase it anytime however if by any chance it doesn’t work for you ‘well’ let’s just say you saved yourself a lot of money. win, win?

Why I Purchased It From Macys?

Well, one reason… there are no shipping requirements on macy’s, they ship beauty products for free. Me, I always buy a few things at a time that’s why it works best for me. It retails for $25 plus tax on both Macy’s and Too Faced but watch out for ebay lol.

What’s In It?

Now to the fun part finally after my long chit chatter lol so here’s what you get in this set, the products speak for themselves 🙂 and almost all of you are familiar with them just like I am but I just wanted to share this purchase with you for two reasons; one, it was my first purchase from ‘TOO FACED’ which is exciting 🙂 two, if you’re like me and looked at this set for a while but wasn’t sure if it was worth it, than you can see all of the products in detail, like their size, colors and all. Here we go…

 

 

 

 

There you have it guys, all five products! I had so much fun just creating this post, now let’s see if you all enjoy it just as much. (I haven’t tired the primers yet) but yeah, if you would like an full individual review of any of these let me know in the comments below, as well as which one of these is your top favorite. Thank you for all your love so far, you guys are awesome! xoxo

200 FOLLOWERS: THANK YOU!

………. How should I begin this, thank you? I feel is not enough, I think I should probably start brainstorming ways to celebrate these milestones now, since it’s actually happening hehe to be honest I didn’t plan for all of this, maybe because I wasn’t expecting much attention for my blog, I mean, I just started… you know what I mean, however, after getting into this blogging community, day by day I would see bloggers celebrating their 100, 1000 followers AND it was at that moment that I imagined myself writing one of these posts too one day. What I didn’t know was that this day would come so soon 🙂 all ‘thanks’ to you guys. I thank each and everyone of you for supporting me and liking whatever I share here. If you guys have any ideas, requests, or would like to collaborate, please do let me now in the comment section of ‘this’ post. I usually share things here out of pure interest and review things as I see them or feel about them, of course, I am ‘new’ to the ‘makeup’ world and that’s what sparked this blog anyways so come and join me on this new beauty blogging journey.

*** How about this, in celebration of 200 I will be following the ‘first’ 20 people to comment or like this post. That should be fun for now 🙂

September ipsy Glam Bag; Too Glam To Give A Damn?

Hi there… how’s it going? ‘September’ wow it’s september 🙂 already but to be honest with the weather and all I wasn’t feeling ‘fall’ coming in at all, until now, yesterday was a such a beautiful day and night, I can’t describe it in words even if I try to, you could only feel it 🙂 and that’s when it hit me that it is september already… mid-september indeed. With that I bring you the September ipsy bag (unboxing) along with some sad news……..this would be my last ipsy bag (for now) since I have canceled the subscription. If you’re wondering WHY? continue reading and you’ll find out other than that please enjoy the rest of the unboxing (because this bag is a nice one) let’s say it made me happy 🙂

THIS MONTH’S THEME:  This month’s theme of the ipsy glam bags is actually “Glamazon” Too glam to give a damn, aww… I’m liking this whole theme over here. The back of card says “REAL TALK” We’re through with lazy beauty, put away your sweatpants, let down your ponytail and get glammed up just for the hell of it. So it’s ipsy is making it pretty clear that this month is about be G-L-A-M G-L-A-M. Which is nice, I like how this is making me feel, I think I needed this right now to lift me up hehe.

THE BAG: Here’s a look at the bag itself, did I mention, I also love the bag design this time, Like I like it 🙂 the colors it’s nice & shiney, the feels, everything. I’m definitely keeping this one 🙂

The girls are spelling out ipsy, neat!

The Products: Now to the actual reason for this subscription, the goodies.

img1474391810614.jpg

So here we have the products and their descriptions;

Amie, naturally kind, Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish – which cleans pore-deep for clearer, softer skin, it’s skin-friendly with natural extracts. It contains natural rice granules that work deep down into pores to lift away dirt, oil, and impurities, revealing clear, smooth skin. It’s always nice to get a cleansing product (can you ever have too many) , though, I don’t know about this, I’m excited to try it out with hopes that it does what it claims. img1474392182617.jpg

Bellapierre Cosmetics, Mineral Blush (MB002) Autumn Glow, this is bigger than a sample size and the shade autumn glow is perfect, however, I do not know if this would look just as good on my face, since it’s a powder blush but it’s A Mineral Blush so that’s nice. Looking forward to this one as well.

Tarte, Tarteist Lash Paint, Look… finally a high end brand 🙂 I was super excited to see this one in the sneak peak (yes, I’m impatient, I can’t wait) however, when it finally came and I opened it to try it out, my excitement faded a little, to me the sample was eehh… not the best, other sample mascara’s I’ve received I use like forever (don’t even buy the full-size) it was more for show, inside was hollow that I thought I broke it opening or something.

Naked Cosmetics, Naked Advanced Aloe Cream It promotes cellular regeneration, gives you new baby-fresh skin faster, it softens up—thanks to amino acids, vitamins, shea butter and natural oils as well as Manuka honey from New Zealand heals and soothes. Oh, that’s a LOT going on in there, amazing, I’m impressed by the description 🙂 of this little thing here.

Pixi By Petra Lipstick, eww… another high end product in this told you this was a good bag I noticed the more expensive brands are always the tiny ones, but it’s soo cute in this size, easy to carry in your pocket, the color is not to complain about either, it’s like my color 🙂 Have a look yourself.

img1474391637345.jpg

And that concludes this month’s ipsy bag unboxing, I truly enjoyed this one and I’m totally feeling this whole ‘GLAM’ thing, again I love the bag, as you can see it’s in every picture hehe. And now as to why this is my last ipsy bag unboxing; Okay! so first of all I just wanna say, I don’t hate ipsy at all and I didn’t have any bad experiences either, they’re cute and I liked their service as well plus this being my first ever beauty subscription; they hold a special place of course. It’s just that I was looking forward to try more of the higher end brands which aren’t always easy to purchase and end up not liking it. Which is why I’m switching to the Sephora Play Box now. I’ve seen fellow bloggers do their unboxings of the PlayBox, so I did a little research on it and guess what it does offer much more for the same value plus it’s directly from Sephora, (and the meetups, the playpass) with everything it just seemed more suitable (so there will still be unboxings every month)

P.S. I just have so much to say to you guys, (that I think I was accidently cramming it into this post) but no, I will do a separate post! Right now I just have to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone who’s made this blog come come this far 🙂 Because yes! as I was creating this post last night, I saw the blog was a follower away from being 200 and now it has reached 200. I can’t begin to tell you how much this means to me, (you guys made my day) love you all and  I’ll see you in my next one.

Best DIY Lip Scrub!

Hello! I’m b-a-c-k 🙂 and the first most important thing about today’s blog is the very last post, yes! and in case you’re not up to date It’s this one check it out if you haven’t  this was a first direct makeup blog and I have to say I can not believe ‘how’ successful it was 🙂 it started gaining ‘likes’ as soon as it went up so THANK YOU my lovelies for liking it so much and always showing your love, love you all xoxo Let’s see if you guys ‘like’ this one just as much, it’s short and sweet lol to be honest, this one is an AMAZING one; it’s all about creating a quick yet effective lip scrub, which will save you tons of money in the long run be real, those lip scrubs are expensive* right? so if it sounds good so far than why not keep reading 🙂

WHAT WILL THIS SCRUB DO ?

It will help you exfoliate your lips, just as you exfoliate your face to reveal fresh skin, you also need to exfoliate your lips to reveal healthy pink looking lips. This scrub will do just that, using all natural ingredients (only good could come of this) I use this scrub all the time and it gives me great results in a very short time every time. This will not only clean your lips but also enhance your lips naturally to make them look for fuller, a two in one? Yes, but for fuller looking lips there are more steps you can take afterwards anyways if you would like a separate detailed blog on how to make your lips look bigger please let me know or simply look out for one coming soon anyways 🙂

TO MAKE THE LIP SCRUB YOU’LL NEED:

  • Brown sugar brownsugarscrub-441x658
  • Almond Oil/Coconut oil
  • Spoon
  • Container or a bowl

TO CREATE THE LIP SCRUB: 

Take a small size jar/container or bowl whatever you prefer; if you would like a fresh scrub every time simply use a little bowl but if you want to store it for a few uses then get those tiny jars made for diy lipsticks/chapsticks.

Take one spoon of brown sugar and add about a half tablespoon of almond oil/coconut oil (or as much oil needed to provide the right amount of consistency (it should remain like a scrub)

Take the spoon and mix everything together (you’re done!)

You can add a flavoring color if you want to

lipscrub7

TO USE THE LIP SCRUB:

Take the scrub to a sink (bathroom, kitchen wherever) cause you do not want sugary crumbs anywhere else

 

Use your fingers to apply the scrub onto your lips and massage in circular motions

at_sugarscrub1

Leave it for 30 or 40 seconds then take a toothbrush and exfoliate your lips by gently applying some pressure (literally) brush your lips again in circular motions. This will take away any dead skin that’s on the surface giving you not only rosy lips but also plump looking lips because it will get the blood flowing.

Wipe off everything with a paper towel and wash off any excess. As always don’t forget to moisturize afterwards. So use a good moisturizing lip balm right after, I perfer you use some vaseline or even even better some almond oil or coconut oil will nourish your lips like nothing else and you my friend are done, hope you’ll love the results 🙂

*Quick Tip: The quickest way to make your lips nice and smooth for a lipstick application or in general, is to take some vaseline and apply it to your lips, leave it on for few mins, then simply rub off your lips using your fingers or paper towel. you’re welcome 🙂

So what did you think of this scrub, have you tried it, will you try it? Which ones are your favorite, diy or store purchases? Fill me in 🙂 I know there are many ways to make a lip scrub using many ingredients but this is what I use the most 🙂 it’s pretty simple!
